Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta inc LEi npmwuE i may Aulhoritiw blame Western counterparts Cuban youth 'extravagant' HAVANA The vivid colors and styles of clothing worn by many young people in Havana today are worrying Cuban authorities who attribute the trend to penetration by imperialism Long bell-bottom platform shoes and tight colorful shirts have become the uniform of these young people. A year ago these fashions were hardly seen here except on young sympathetic to the Cuban who flock to this country each summer. Local news media have used the word to describe these youngsters.

It took a lot of years to bring jeans to the fashion forefronl But when the jeans explosion did men arid women of all sizes and ages seemed to think that the only way to dress for any anywhere was in denim. And while faded denim is reappearing in the better shops at prices resembling a maharaja's there's still another look to jeans this season.

Campus Corner By PHILIP JANG Lethbridge Collegiate Institute I suppose I was in Grade 3 when rny political opinions were formed or what seems to pass for political opinion these days. That Grade 3 year coincided with a federal election. The first that my feeble memory recalls To move us into the spirit of our teacher arbitrarily so we divided us into groups labelled with the name of each federal political parties Conservative they were called before they became Social Credit and NDP. The exact purpose for this I can't quite recall but it did have something to do with or something involving each section of the class competing against the other with the objective of coming out on top. I was selected to be a member of the Liberal party. Being elementary school political party we all became somewhat more interested in political affairs and current events. I became acquainted with some of the mass of gray on the front page of the local spending a few minutes there after my trot through the cartoons. There was a great deal in both the cartoons and front page that to say the a little hard to understand they often still The editorial page cartoon was of particular fascination. If was the most difficult of cartoons and it often had the distorted likenesses of the political party whom I recognized from photos our teacher had shown us. Positions the political parties were laying out. their their of never entered my mind. I was quite unfamiliar with the system of the structure of government and the issues at stake because I was a Liberal member in the I quite heartily cheered the Liberals on My understanding of the Canadian political scene increased with infrequent dribbles as the years of education increased to six. seven and eight. Somewhere during-that time I discovered that prime ministers were not directly elected but were selected by being the leader of the party with the most members elected to parliament This had been a point that was left as universally known knowledge during the election telecast of the Grade 3 year. It was also a point I pondered over quite as I when the votes for prime minister were not given but only the number of representatives elected for each political party. As things turned Lethbridge elected a Conservative and the Liberals won the election without my vote. What happened in our classroom I can't remember. Eight years which would make it about I suspect that I still have leanings towards the party I was cheering for in Grade 3. This is not because I understand political positions any better or indeed know how to understand political party but because I happened to be a Liberal in my classroom in Grade 3. This worries me a little For the most I try to remain neutral about things these telling myself that I don't really know enough to judge. When I'm not feeling too lazy I try- to understand why such and such a move has been or will be made. Obviously when experts don't understand or agree about what's going on there's little chance I'm about too. it would be nice if I could understand more of what the experts are talking about when they do understand. What I'm leading up to is that I'm not especially bliss about my ignorance about the Canadian system of the Canadian constitution and things of that nature. With the proliferation of American I suspect I know a bit more about things American than things Canadian. Very little that has been absorbed on the Canadian system of government has been absorbed in public school. To put it it would be nice to learn a bit more than is currently taught. After writing this I should be feeling guilty enough to stroll down to the library for some reading material.
