At Wilson Junior High Pancake breakfast at grad By HOLLY POCIT Graduation day began early with the annual pancake break- fast, sponsored by the teachers of Wilson Junior High. About 200 slespy-eyed and hungry graduates drifted into the school cafeteria at 8 am. Many students seemed at first hesitant to try the pancakes, but soon dug in to the piles of pancakes and ham. Throughout the day. the Grade 9 class did as little as possible. Most of the girls were away for those all important beauty appointments while oth- ers were doing last minute shopping. The most important event of the day, the graduation dance, began at 8 p.m. with the band Moses. The dance was a great success, ending at 11 p.m. What is graduation the ro- mance of young girl's first for- mal dance with that all import- ant guy; jeans and T-shirts be- ing replaced by formals and baggie outfits. Most important, is the ation that graduation is the i final event which you will par- ticipate in as a Wilson student. j The happiness of entering an- I other school gets you excited but a little bit of sadness is left behind von. The fun times and the dis- couraging times will both re- main with you forever. Yes, graduation day will re- main a very pleasant memory. BATON TWIRLING PROVINCIAL CHAMP HOLDS MANY TITLES LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By KAREN CRANE Winston Churchill High School FINALS ALREADY! Monday gtarts the final week at Church- ill. Many students are writing several exams. Others, luckier cnes like myself only write one. Perhaps we will have a ter- rible weekend, weather-wise and we'll be able to get some done for a change. Spring is so full of fun things to do; graduation for instance. It was a lot of fun and some- ting I'll never forget; especial- ly the disasterous little things like Mae tripping up the stairs, Mr. Labti tripping on the floor, and the "wonderful" way the grads sang the Alma Mater, al- The Dew student council is jetting organized under the direction of Randy Rae, the new president, Carol Moore, the senior class pres., and Fawn McLaughlin, the sophomore class pres. They'll soon be or- ganizing their budget for next year. I envy them, it's such a fun job. Cheerleading tryouts are also being held this spring. The early date was to enable the to go to a cheerleading camp this summer. Hopefully, they will be able to go.

I don't know how many games they have won or even played, but I do know they've elimin- ated several players with injur- ies even in practice. 'Atta fight girls, but couldn't you save it for games? Looking back it seems like a really great senior year: foot- ball season, volleyball, basket- ball season, Oklahoma, Awards Day and Grad, from the break- fast to the kegger, and now, not so pleasant finals Golf dub gets support A cheque for S333.70 was do- nated to the Lethbridge and District Youth Recreation As- sociation last Friday, presented to Reg Turner, chairman of the board of directors, by Gilbert Paterson golf club president, Ken Serbu. The money was raised by raf- fling a set of golf cl'.ibs, donat- ed to the school by Woolco and by a donation, from the stu- dents' union. Mr. Turner noted that 'this is a sign that the Lethbridge schools are going to see this project through so that they can play golf next year.'' By KATHIE GARRATT Herald Staff Writer Alberta's new senior baton twirling champion thinks baton twirling is a sport, not an art form, and she a roomful of trophies won in competition to support her con'c'ition. Vicki F.o'iinrm, 16-; old city girl v.ho v.or, her title here two wcels ago, considers herself an amateur athlete who participates in a strictly ama- teur sport. She wouldn't think of accept- ing money for twirling at a par- ticular event. ''Once you accept money, you j are considered a professional and can't enter any more corn- she claimed. "We are paid in tokens, like trophies and medals, or else have our expenses paid.'' Vicki began twirling 11 years ago. Now she is the holder of about 78 trophies and has many titles behind her. xMthough she has waited for 10 years to become a provincial winner, Vicki has taken the city majorette award every year since she was seven years old, is this year's overall winner for the Lethbridge competition and took first place in the city senior solo and the city senior strut championships. Vicki says in competitions they are charged for overtime I and undertime.

Paramount Theatre Phone 328-4080 Rutgers program 'Open' NEW BRUNS WICK, N..J (AP) The tape recorder is bedng used by Rutgers Univer- sity as an educational tool to distribute lectures and other class material to students as far away as Alaska. The students, who receive the tapes by mail, are members of the Open University, which is completing its first year at Rut- gers, a state university. The multi-media program al- lows the 250 students lo study on their own. If they want to supplement their home study and if they live close enough, they can visit a study centre here, at the University Heights campus across the Raritan River or at the University Col- lege office in Paterson. Tutors are available at the study centres as are related tapes, films and other materi- als. Nicknamed "The University of the Second and "Everyman's the Open University is aimed, ac- cording to director Jessie C. Hartline. at "those whose lifes- tyles or personal situation make a traditional classroom arrange- ment undesirable." The program sets no formal entrance requirements; candi- dates are chosen through inter- views. The Open University project began in Great Britain, where million was invested in set- ting it up as an independent program. The lectures In the British program are delivered on televi- sion. The Rutgers program is using tape recordings prepared by British professors. The students here earn full credit for their work in one of three aialhblc i'i the humanities, science and mathc- IPI'ICS. Each of the interdisciplinary courses runs for 36 weeks and is the equhalent of five regular college courses. Examinations and other written work are dis- tributed by mail. The program is being evalu- ated by the Education Testing Service of Princeton to deter- mine if it can be adapted for ex- panded use in the United States. J Accent on Youth History joining list of electives By BRIAN McKENNA HALIFAX (CP) A change is afoot in the Nova Scotia education system de- signed to make senior high school students masters of their fate. There is nothing new in the move to a freer curriculum in which the individual student, end not the department of ed- ucation, decides what he will study. The idea is to create a cur- riculum tailor-made to the needs of the individual student equip him either with skills readily usable in the job market or with a solid back- ground for post-secondary ed- ucation. But more than a few con- servative feathers were ruf- fled anew when the education department recently an- nounced history was joining the growing list of electives. Although continued study of history is to be strongly en- couraged and the final deci- sion left to local school boards, by nsxt September the province i.self will reauire Only English (and French in districts where applicable) as compulsory learning. For the traditionally-minded porcnt or educationist seeing his'cry go the of the hick- ory stick has epitomized their worst fears. R. J. Morrison, an executive staff officer wiih the Union of Nova Scotia Teachers, is one of the majority of the prov- ince's educationists attempt- ing to allay conservative fears. At 33, and after eight years Program for tlie blind launched by university PETERBOROUGH. Out. (CP' Being able to read and write is something most students take for granted. But for a blind stu- dent the world of pen and paper seems light years away. Trent University now is launching a program for blind students in which texts are read and recorded on audio tape. The university's Audio Li- Drary Program for the Blind las recruited as its supervisor D. Stewart Hayter, former Ca- nadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) director of recrea- tion for Ontario. He is completely blind himself now, having lost his 10 per cent vision while in his third year at York University in Toronto studying for a bachelor of arts degree. 'I believe that blind aid landicapped students have the right to pursue their education as comfortably as he said. "Blind students in Ontario op- erate under a huge handicap be- cause they have no common ground they can relate to." Now Mr. Hayter will have a chance to help such students get their education more comforta- bly. "We're in the process of set- ting standards for our master he said. "There are already about 80 tapes read by Peterborough vol- unteers over the last couple of years. Ones that don't meet our standards will be done again." Five Trent students have re- ceived an Opportunities for Youth grant from the federal government to spend their sum- mer putting texts on tape for the audio library. Cathy Nessner, one of the five students, is blind. She will be "proofing reading" the tapes. Mr. Hayter plans on using readers as a team, alternating occasionally to keep books from, becoming boring by the monot- ony of "one voice for eight or 10 hours." The man really responsible for getting the program off the ground is Peter Tighe, Trent's audio-visual co-ordinator. He compiled a report last Christmas, after eight months of research, and submitted it to the provincial ministry of col- leges and universities. Practices twirling Provincial baton twirling champion, Vicki Robinson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Robinson, 818 21 St. S., demonstrates a couple cf her twirling routines.

PHONE 328-9444 In the high school system in- cluding a tenure as principal, Mr. Morrison is confident that the new system will not only work, but "prove far superior to what we've had." He sees no mass exodus from one subject to another more popular or easier course. "It's a system built basi- cally on common sense. The students know what they need to get along in the he says. "Most people tend to e-quate kids with revolutionary ideas. Hell, that's nonsense, kids are th: most conservative bunch in socic'ly." Mr. Morrison said the elec- tive approach to the high school curriculum was only a realization that some subjects once thought to be all-impor- tant have slipped, while changing times have brought others to the fore.
