Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Mwiday, May 4, 1970 THE LETH8MOSE HERAID The Exceptional Child By MURRAY COLEMAN GUbcrt Paterson School To many ceople the "Excep- tional Child'' means one who is extremely bright. This is true of about three per cent of the school population known as the "Intellectually Gifted" which are one of the special service groups. On the other end of the intel- ligence scale are three per cent of the children who are men- tally retarded. These children are abnormally slow in their rate of intellectual develop- ment and do not attain the nor- mal range of I.Q. at maturity. The mentally retarded them- selves are grouped in their abil- School-In! By DOUGLAS RYLANDS Grade Seven Gilbert Paterson School Door to door survey reveals that adults show little interest in our monthly paper "School In." Facts show that 13 per cent out of 33 interviewed adults had reaJ it with much interest. The other 87 pet cent (29 out of 33) had not read the paper at all. Twenty-four per cent of them had never seen it before. Speaking of the ones who did read it, they felt happy to have this type of paper to in- form them of school and stu- dent activities from the stu- 'dents "point of view. Although some thought there was too much professional influence, the overall thought was that the paper should be a student tfiort. What is your opinion? Dairy Tour Some of the grade five boys and girls studying about the dairy industry were very ex- cited about their tour of Pav- arn's Dairy Farm. The Pavam Dairy is located about two and one half miles north of the TV station. There are about 350 Holstein Cows on the farm. There are three men working on the farm. Not aU of the cows are being milked at the same time. There were some calves four 'days old. The three month old calves are given no more milk. If the weather is good the one month old calves are let out of their pens if not they arc kept indoors until they are three months old. The food they get is pellets, barley, wheat, oats and alfalfa. The pellets are like vitamins. The milking times are 5 a.m. to a.m. and to p.m. The milking machine has four steel round "tubes for the cow's bag. They have rubber tubes hanging from the four steel round tubes. The vacuum machine sucks the milk. The cooler machine keeps the toiilk coo! in the large tank. It holds about pounds. The milk travels from the milking machines through two sets of tubes. The tank and tubes are cleaned but with very bot water and dilao which ia an acid. The rest of the cows are fed wheat, barley, oats, concen- trate and vitamins which are ground up fine. The diseases which cows can get are sometimes the same as those we get. These are foot rot, mouth disease, disease of the foot and nouth, Brucellosis, etc. Patricia Watts ity. There is the slow learner, who -is on the borderline be- tween the normal and the re- tarded, the educable and train- able children followed by the custodial child who bas to have almost complete care. The educable and trainable children are the ones that con- cern us most of the retarded group in our present school sys- tem. These children as adults can become fully employed, or at least partially independent through sheltered workshops, if they are given the opportunity for mental, physical, and social growth in our schools. It would be preferable if these children started school before the age of six, as unfor- tunately, many of the things that normal children seem to absorb from their parents, sib- lings, and peers, these children >-ave to be meticulously taught. This is known as sensory train- ing and involv es touching, smelling, manipulating, hear- ing, seeing, classifying, etc. as much as possible. The inner language or understanding has to be learned first, and then re- lated to speech that 'will be used for more advanced work. Because retarded children usu- ally have one or more of their senses impaired to some ex- tent, every learning situation has to be attacked with as many methods as possible. These children have met so Union Dairy By CHRISTINE HALL A group of grade five people were trying to find information about the city dairy. So we went to the Union Dairy. When we got there the first room we went to was where they tasted the cream and decided the grade. A man would dump it down a screen and it would go to the basement. Every two weeks an inspec- tor would test the butteriat of every farmer's milk. Most of the milk tested 30-35 per cent. Some tested SO per cent and some as low as 15 per cent. It took 30 minutes for one batch of bottles to get through the washer. When they got out they were sent by machine to the filler. The filling machine filled the bottles with milk. When they filled the cardboard cartons with milk the machine shot the cartons across very fast to cool it The cooler room is called a Hollywood Storage. The tem- perature is 35 degrees 40 de- grees in it. The milk has dif- ferent caps to show the kinds of milk or juice. Milk is pumped from a truck to a holding tank where it is pasteurized at 162 degrees for 16 seconds. It goes through the clarifiers that takes out the dirt. The ingredients of muk, cream, sugar and flavoring are mixed for The locker room has meat. Ice-cream, potato chips and other things in it. It is 10 de- grees below zero. There is an axe on the door if someone gets locked in. In the engine room there ia a big machine that moves heat through the building. Ammonia is used there but in our fridge freou is used. There is a huge churn where only No. 1 cream is made into butter. No. 2 cream is sent to Swift Current.. Cream is pas- teurized at 180 degrees for 10 minutes and cooled at 40 de- grees. The cream is churned 45 minutes and tho churn is half full. At the end of this time butter is formed. many failures that they are afraid to try anything new. It is best to use a positive ap- proach giving praise and re- ward for good attitudes or cor- rect work. Assignments should be made in very easy steps, progressing from what the child can already accomplish in or- der to decrease the chance of failure. Social abilities and economic usefulness are more significant for these children than aca- demic achievements. The im- portant thing is to learn enough to be able to work and live as independently as possible. This means that good work habits, Poetry FLOWERS Look at that flower Sometimes flowers die away Some flowers have I like Haiku be- cause it is a good kind of poe- try. It is better than arithmetic because arithmetic is hard work. McDonald. SPRING How good it will be When spring comes very soon Leaves will come back again. When I write .poetry it makes me. think of things. Haikus are better than having music. One of these days I'm going to be the best poetry writer in the world. Jang FIRES I like bonfires And to watch them spring up like Kangaroo's hind legs. I like poetry be- cause it is a bit easy to write. It is fun to write and to say. I think Haiku is my easiest sub- ject in school. -Patti Ben SIGNS OF SPRING Birds chirp in high trees As I listen to them chirp I feel so happy. I think Haiku is better than spelling because spoiling is hard. I Uiink they should have more syllables in the first line. I think that signs of spring are easier-and faster. Firth BUTTERFLIES Shining, Colorful Playing in the bright sunshine Fluttering away. I like the idea of writing Haiku. When I write it it gives me a good feeling.

Diamante poetry does not rhyme, it is just a bunch of words that say about'the word oa the top. Uitbeyerso time, money, how to look after yourself, and the use of com- munity services are the sort of essentials that are needed. Within their peer group these children are very happy, help- ful, and pleasant children to teach. Because the instruction bas to be so individualized to Pigeons Raising Homing Pigeons is a hobby carried out all around the- world by both men and women. It is an expensive hobby be- cause a good bird can cost as much as to Homing pigeons come in several stand- ard colors. They weigh about 16 ounces when fully grown. They fly about feet high but can go to any height. They have been know to fly 600 miles in a single day, and will aver- age from 45 to 60 miles per hour. There are about 12 owners of Homing Pigeons in (he city of Lethbridge. During the last two wars they carried messages but are now used mostly for entertainment when club members race them against each other. A homing pigeon carries a message in a little tube. The tube is put on the bird's leg. by David Woodcock. Air Canada First you buy your ticket. On R, it says your baggage num- ber, then, which airline you want to take, your flight number and your final destination. It says that on your ticket three times so you can take trans- fers. Then (hey weight your lug- gage. They put it on a big scale and weigh it. After it is weighed they put tags on it. One tag says, and has a special color' for each city the luggage is going to. The other tag has on it what your name is, where you come from and your final destination. After the tags are all on, they put a sticker on that says Baggage Checked. Then they have a card that has to be filled out. On the card it has your last name, your first two initials of your last name, first initial of your first name, the flight number, date and how many seats you bought. Then they take the card and put it in a machine. The machine sends a duplicate to Toronto and back in one second. The freight which is on the plane is sometimes sausages, vegetables, potatoes and other quantities of things. Most of the freight goes in the luggage com- partment. If there is no room for the freight, it stays behind till the next plane comes in. They do allow animals on the plane but they have to be caged up. They have cages in differ- ent sizes. You cannot rent the cages, you have to buy them. The animals, in cages, stay with the luggage. They have four different Air Canada passenger planes. The DC-9, the DC-8, The Vanguard and the Viscount. The Viscount comes through Lethbridge.

The teacher must fie able to communicate to each one that she accepts, under- stands and cares about him or her. The biggest reward to the teacher, is that shriek of de- lighti "I CAN DO IT." Then she knows that this exceptional child has achieved one more rung on the ladder of success. Limericks There was once a parrot named Polly. Who thought crackers and crumbs were folly. Then one day in surprise, He got crumbs in his eyes And found it not so jolly. Tuttle There was once a girl named Lonnie, Who had legs so lean and scrawny, Where ever she went, Her legs were bent, Especially when she chased poor Ronnie.

Romanchuk A clever young fellow named Billy Bode to town on his little filly When asked, "do you He replied, "not a hair." And the townfolk thought him quite silly. Severtsou Sugar Beets A group of grade five stu- dents are studying about sugar beets. We saw a film about tha Taber Sugar Factory because we were going to visit it They level the land in the fall. It is a well-moistened seedbed. In April they plow the land and loosen the soil. They get the seed from tha factory. The seed starts as ono germ. Each produces a plant. It is machine planted. In a few weeks it start s to develop. Then they cultivate. They use a thinner machine. Some is done by long-handled hoes. There are about laborers. About August 20 field testers come to the farm and dig about 10 feet of beets. These are cleaned, topped and weighed. He guesses how many beets are in an acre. In October they har- vest the beets before they freeze. The machine tops the beets that are left in the ground. Then they are hauled to a hopper or truck. It is load- ed in piles and taken to the factories in Taber and Picture Bntte. They weigh the whole load, then they dump the beets and weigh the empty trucks by a computer. They check the condition and temperature of the beets. Then they put the beets into hot water in a spill- way. The tops are removed by the trash remover. There are three washing tanks. Then potatoes are made. It is liquid sugar. Then a ma- chine separates the sugar from the beet pulp. Shawna ;
