A Canadian Press survey from 6 p.m. local time Fri- day to midnight Sunday night showed Alberta with 13 traf- fic fatalities, Manitoba with six and Saskatchewan with four. Alberta also reported one death by fire, one person kill- ed while horseback riding and one killed hi an accident at home.

Cynithia Downs, a special- ist in elementary school music from Calgary, and Dr. Craig Elliott, an associate profes- sor of childhood drama at the University of Calgary, dem- onstrated some of their meth- ods for acquainting children with the fine arts Saturday. About 45 people attended sessions which were part of the Southwestern Regional Early Childhood Education Council conference at Fleet- wood-Bawden School. Miss Down said getting children truly interested in a music program can be diffi- cult because television has already formed them in many ways. "They have to be trained to use_ the ear without the eye which is hard to condition them to dp after they are used to being glued to tele- vision Miss Downs Kaid. Television has also influenc- ed childrens' tastes in music. "It ha5 made their tastes more sophisticated and so it is necessary for all instruc- tors to upgrade their music she said.

"Since the program is aim- ed at pre-schoolers it's a pity it isn't using the nursery rhyme songs and the fairye tale characters instead of the rock-western type of music it she said. Miss Downs said elemen- tary school teachers should let children sing their way through nursery rhymes, just to allow them to get acquaint- ed with what they can do with different sounds. She also suggested that to keep children interested in music it was necessary to keep the music room attrac- tive. Different types of decora- tions, pictures and displays of musical instruments can give a room "a music Miss Downs said. Children enjoy movement along with singing. Miss Downs suggested beginning with larger movements like running and skipping and then to progressing to smaller movements like hand clap- ping. "Start with rhythm. Find out what children can do with their bodies can they move to music? Then move on to Miss Downs said. Dr. Elliott, in his drama session, said he believes chil- dren learn best by doing. Therefore, he said, it would be against his way of teach- ing to talk about drama to the workshop visitors. He said he felt they would learn more by participating and becoming totally involved rather then by sitting and listening to him speak about drama.

By JOANNA MORGAN Herald Staff Writer Six hundred young people between 12 and 18 years of age can go camping in Wat- erton Lakes National PHc C this summer with the South- west Truckin' Company, an Opportunities For Youth pro- ject based in Lethbridge. The 12 member team re- ceived a federal grant of to take teenagers from the district hiking and camp- ing. Some goes to- ward the summer salaries of the nine post secondary stu- dents and three high school students. Under OFY guidelines, post-secondary students earn a week and high school students The remaining goes toward transportation and in- surance costs. Young people throughout the Lethbridge district can sign up for one of the week- long campouts which start in late June and continue until August. Bus transport for the Mon- day to Sunday camps vill be supplied by the OFY people. The campers are expected to supply their own food and gear for the week. Borrowed cquiment through the Truck- in' Ccmpany will be avail- able for teenagers unable to supply their own. Seminars in Lethbridge be- FACTS of LIFE _ WCK CORNERWADlFftRtfirsiATf?

Mr. Bartlett, an arts and science student, took office Feb. 23. His resignation, for "personal reasons" was an- nounced today by John Mc- Innis, Students' Society fi- nance minister. Mr. Mclnnis has been ap- pointed acting president for the summer. A special by- election will be held this fall to fill the position vacated by Mr. Bartlett. fore each session will instruct the campers in what they need. Three Truckin' members, Allan Walfcey, 20, Terry Lee, 19, and John Walkey, 26, were involved in a similar OFY project last year, Life- time Recreation Serv ices operated out of the civic drop-in centre. Lifetime Recreation offer- ed camping trips to Water- ton last year, and its one dif- ficulty was a site for its base camp. Since all campgrounds in the park are public, the campers found themselves in the crowded overflow site on several occasions. Bill Henderson, of the Wat- erton administration office, pointed out that even though the camping program this year sounded well organized with its five campers to one counsellor ratio, the park could not give the group a campsite of their own. "The campgrounds in the park are free to all and on a first corns, first served he explained. The Truckin' Company will consult the park administra- tion next week on the feasi- bility of certain sites in the Waterton area. They hope to use Bertha Bay as a base camp. The counsellors who range from 17 to 2G in age attend university and the local high schools. They stress that then- plan for a camp is ex- tremely flexible. "It will be up to the kids to decide what they want to do out there." One group, for example, may wish to backpack "into the lesser-known trails of the region on an overnight trip; another party may elect to spend all week at their base camp. Mrs. Angus Huchala, of 106 7th Ave. A S., visited the campers last year when her daughter, Michele, was in- cluded. She approved of the lack of routine: "They ate when they felt like it, cooked when they felt like it, and were really relaxed." The Truckin' Company feels the camps have anoth- er purpose besides the exper- ience of living outdoors. Terry Lcs discussed the rigors of urban life now for young people and said, "These kids run in a really hectic race. We want to give them a chance to get out of the city and change." It is also valuable for the campers to meet new friends from the group that contains different ages and both sexes. Ken Spence, the general secretary at the Lethbridge YMCA suggested that resi- dental camping like the de- funct Y camp, Camp Inuspi, was a thing of the past. Fam- ily and wilderness camps are in vogue. Mr. Spence said that It was unfortunate that the Y could not qualify for OFY funds. A short wilderness camp will be held by the Y for a week in July.
