S. lethbridgt AUCTIONEERS TED NEWBY KEITH ERDMANN Lie. No. 41 Lie. No. 458 onto speech teacher, dipping temperature also account for lack of good word articulation by Canadians. Mrs. Florence Aymong, speech adjudicator at the Leth- bridge and District Kiwanis Music Festival, said southern peoples "let the warm air en- gulf "But partly, because a deep breath of frosty air brings a pain to the chest, Canadians keep their mouths shut. .They don't use their speech appara- .tus." For 30 years a member of the speech department in the Royal Conservatory of Music, Mrs. Aymong also suggested Canadians suffer from an in- nate shyness, which again dim- inishes their articulation. A graduate of the HCM de- partment, she was raised in the days when young ''elocution lessons" ladies took rather than classes in speech arts. "Elocution is a perfectly good word, but it became associated with a set pattern of gestures. Although a teacher could be a consummate speaker, he would tend to have his pupils use cer- tain gestures with certain words. You never saw anything so surfacey in your life." One of four members of the speech faculty, Mrs. Aymong initially was interested in mu- sic until a classmate in school, who took "elocution was offered juicy speaking jobs the Bible school. "My tongue hung out when saw her." Mrs. Aymong began teaching immediately upon re- ceiving a licentiate in speed- from RCM. She contended "articulation games" can be provided for children of five and six year and older, but formal trainin should not begin until age 10-12 Earlier than this, the chili has no "real control" She said speech training is particularly beneficial fo handicapped children because "it gives them an on any level." For anyone, formal speec! training "which is just a disciplined as for mastery o the piamo" teaches the art o communication, "one of the most important things today." Mrs. Aymprfg also said articulation is crucial for teach- ers, "who should teach good die tion by example rather than precept." She cited a U.S. study which showed the best classroom dis- cipline was achieved by teach- ers with former voice training For persons who wish to ad vance in speech arts, there are jobs to be had in teaching drama, the media, speech the- raphy.

ORIENTAL FIRST The first Oriental to sit in tJie United States Senate was Hiram ?ong, Chinese, elected senator from Hawaii in 1959. As for the most publidzd speakers of the day the poli- ticians Mrs. Aymong doesn't give them all high marks. Prime Minister Trudeau is a fine speaker and intelligent. The trouble is he expects every- one else to be as intelligent as 'he is, she said. Opposition leader Robert Siaufidd is very intelligent also and if you listen hard his speeches make sense, yet his monotony of delivery turns you off. "I get tired." Creditiste leader Real Cao- uette is but New Demo- cratic Parry chieftain Tommy Douglas allows his Baptist background to sneak Into his voice.

An intense study Is being made before the new wilderness act is fully implemented. The term "not in the public was taken rather bit- lerly by Floyd Strom, Alberta president, and by Mr. Michal- sky. Morgan Johnson stated he heartily endorsed the idea that such areas be made possible. There should be no motorized vehicles, no lumbering or other industry. There must be com- pete avoidance of pollution. He was asked how large such an area should be and he sug- gested 500 square miles. Th: le was forced to concede would have to be in a number of >ieces, and could be much too arge at this time in Alberta's present development. IVES FACTS Charles Drain, MLA gave a lumber of facts about recent egislation, particularly about the wildlife act and the environ- mental control act. It was pointed out antl-pollu- ion moves had been made 'ears ago but as the population lad increased and industries prang the problem increased. One section in each township s to be set aside to provide latural beauty and wilderness iharacteristics of the highest ypes. A committee is to be set jp outside of government ranks set up controls which will e decided at public hearings. Certainly there must be no pos- ibility of exploitation by any- ne in establishing such areas, 'he whole plan will take time o work out, Mr. Drain said.
