Rowdy gangs growing, attacking classmates BOMBAY 14-year-old Bombay student was so se- verely beaten by one of his classmates that he later died in a hospital. In Calcutta, schoolboys in one district move about in groups of 10 for fear of attacks by "student gangsters." There was panic for some days in the north Indian city of Amritsar following reports that a student group using bicycle chains and iron rods was terrorizing junior pupils. Indian educationists and government officials are worried by what one Bombay columnist calls "growing terrorism by a small group of rowdy gangs in schools." Police are investigating allegations that the Bombay student who was responsible for the death of his classmate had connections with a gang. Press reports say that in the northern provinces of Bihar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh student ter- rorism has assumed disturbing proportions in some towns In the Madhya Pradesh town of Bhopal, a teacher who tried to save a student from being beaten up by a gang was him- self severely beaten. Reports in local journals described all the student participants in the episode as being below the age of 12 LONDON (CP) A "study- your own subject" scheme, claimed to be the only one of its kind in the world, has been established at the University of Lancaster in northwest England. Certain undergraduates now have freedom to design their own courses and decide how their work will be assessed. Dr. Frank Oldfield, director of the School of Independent Studies, explained: "The stu- dents are able to work on proj- ects geared to their own inter- ests and needs." One student, a police sergeant, has decided to study transport problems and has been seconded to the university for three years. "We want to attract students whose experience of life and work is not necessarily confined to academic Old- field said. "The needs of such people may not always be met by traditional university courses." During the first year at the university, students may apply for enrolment ir the School of Independent Studies. If accepted, they spend part of the first term of their second year independent program. During the next term whose proposals are approved are registered as members of the school and they pass the last four terms as independent students. Oldfield said this gives stu- dents unprecedented scope, but added: "The school is extremely demanding over choice of student and subject. We have to be convinced that independent study is desirable in each case. Subjects chosen must have all the coherence, weight and academic dis- cipline of a conventional degree program. Each case must satisfy not only the university authorities but an external examiner." The idea arose when lecturers at Lancaster volunteered to supervise students with the same interests as their own special- ities. Projects to be studied by in- dependent students include human aggression, sociology of visual arts, the power structure of contemporary Britain and the rise of Italian fascism. Project Christopher scheduled this weekend CAMPING URAILER A leadership seminar entitled Project Christopher will take place at St. Patrick's Church, beginning at 8 p.m. Friday until Sunday at 3 p.m. Sponsored by the Year Team, Project Christopher attempts to motivate youth to recognize their own needs and needs of others throughout the community. "A member of the Year Team, Dolores Montgomery, explained that the purpose of the weekend is to try and bring out leadership potential in individuals and put it into a service in the community. A group of students organized Project Concern to help elderly people in the city after attending last year's session. The project will continue throughout the weekend with chaperones present. A donation for meals will be asked if participants .can afford it. For more information, contact Dolores Montgomery at F. C. J. Convent or phone 327-3509. SPECIAL TMtMHMht ZELLERS OWN Bradford Brand!

However, the floor hockey season is short in CCHS lasting only four weeks. A team consisting of Grade 11 students took top honors this season. With the finish of the floor hockey games school activity in sports closes down for the rest of the semester. During the week of the March 18 to 22 all the graduating Grade 12 students had their "grad pictures" taken. The resulting photographs will be excellent I am sure. The U of L and the LOC public relations men paid a visit to our school and each gave an excellent presentation on the benefits and facilities of the two institutions. As school comes to an end, we turn our eyes to the summer Each one of us has plans and hopes. CCHS did more than wen at the annual Lethbridce Regional Science Fair.
