I nc L.C I Traffic a problem at Paterson School By MAUREEN McCALL Like many schools in Gilbert Paterson has a traffic problem. Every day students coming and go- ing from school cause many problems at the main intersection Jay-walkers show no concern for cars and cross the street anywhere they expecting motorists to be alert at all times. Bike riders cause another problem The gate leading from the bike racks to the street is just a narrow causing great jam-ups when everyone is rushing to get home People passing on the sidewalk in front of the gate are always being rammed by rushing bikes once through the branch off into different directions with no more concern for the motorist than the jaywalker. The students' council realizes that part of the problem could be solved by having students give the motorist more respect. On the other council is trying to come up with a permanent solution to this carelessness and would appreciate any suggestions Paterson's first school a record hop will be held November 16 It is hoped there will be a large turn-out. Another first for this year will be a skating party this Saturday at the Henderson Ice Arena. Admission is 25 cents and prizes will be drawn. One upcoming event no one should miss is the Paterson Christmas band concert. Band leader Don Globa is working terribly hard to make the three Paterson bands sound bearable for the concert The Herald- Youth Cadet enrolment shows long hair going out OTTAWA long-hair syndrome may be on the way out for Canadian says Dan public relations officer for the Army Cadet League of Can- ada.
