Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday. November 7, 1974 t HAM11T9N JUNIOR 100th anniversary re-creation This group of Grade 8 and 9 students from Hamilton Junior High School in Lethbridge, in a re-creation of the north west march of the NWMP, arrived at the original site of Fort Edmonton last week, exactly 100 years after the arrival of the troop led by Inspector Jarvis in 1874. The Hamilton Junior High trek began at Roche Percee in southern Saskatchewan and the original route was followed as closely as possible. House rests in a triangle of large cedar trees Friends to spend winter in treehouse CAMBRIDGE, Ont. (CP) As kids, Michael, Laurie, Peter, and Marni led comfortable, middle class lives. In a negative sort of way, it probably has a lot to do with why they are planning to spend this winter in a treehouse. Since April, Michael McCurlie, 22, and Laurie Olsen, 20, have been living in the treehouse in a secluded cedar forest beside the Speed River outside this western Ontario city. In August, 23 year old Peter Wood, and 20 year old Marni Willoughby joined them in the two bedroom, split level struc- ture. The treehouse, located on a .friend's land, was built for by Michael and Laurie's brother, Jack, in two weeks, using spruce plywood and two by fours in a modified T-bar construction. It rests in a triangle of large cedar trees. Neither had any carpentry ex- perience, but had built a smaller treehouse on the same site three years ago. Jack and Michael liv- ed there for a month. Vandals wrecked that structure. Right now, they're busy in- sulating the house. Then they plan to panel the inside and lay carpets. They have already put a small wood stove in the main room. Laurie works nights at a pizza parlor here, and Michael works bars and clubs as a member of the rock band Elvin. Peter, a fourth year fine arts student, and Marni, in third year sociology attend University of Guelph. The two couples see little of each other, except Sundays, everyone's day off. "So it doesn't really get crowd- ed Michael said. "Besides, we all like each other." A few weeks ago, the treehouse was robbed. Taken were two bass clarinets, an oboe, a portable stove, a lantern, and about 100 records, total value about "Until thrs happened." Michael said, "the girls and I were saving about a month on rent. Now we're lucky if we'll break even." Everything in the house is there for its utility, not beauty. Soon, locks will be added to the utility of the place. The wooden ice box, also desk and table, provided the house with its picture window. When they tried to bring the ice box up by pulley, they found it too big to fit through the door. So they cut a hole in the side of the treehouse to get it inside, then put windows in the hole. It gives a great view of the river. They get drinking water from a nearby farm, and now burn a load of cherrywood given them by friends. They cook on a camp- ing stove, and wash dishes with boiled river water. They had a vegetable garden, arranged in "companion" plan- ting, combinations of vegetables and herbs to keep away insects. They planted one tenth of an acre, and it grew so well they couldn't use all the produce. Foam mattresses are used as beds, with eiderdown sleeping bags on top. Nails become clotheshangers, and every niche of empty space is used for storage. The plumbing is outdoors, which means a trip down the rope ladder and a 100 foot walk to a cedar grove to an old wooden armchair with part of the seat removed, perched over a deep pit. For the winter, they're buying a chemical toilet and building a shed on the porch to house it. "I'll probably use the old one as much as I can. I like to sit out there and watch the birds. They're really curious, they're not used to seeing people sitting out there in an Michael said. The household spends only a week on food, eating healthy, if not necessarily, health foods. By next spring, Michael figures, he and Laurie can quit their jobs and do what they've always wanted: Observe and record life in the forest for one year, see nature in its full cycle.

Little Respect Long Way PERMIS -ONIY4 imp rove LANDS AND abouT tomorrow LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By EMILY BURKE Catholic Central High School Catholic Central's senior high Cougar football team breezed back to Lethbridge last weekend with the southern Alberta high school football trophy. They defeated the Medicine Hat Vikings resoundingly with a score of 27 to 0. They had had an undefeated season which enabled them to easily take the championship. The support and enthusiasm of the fans was shown with the operating of two packed spectator buses to Medicine Hat to provide a solid cheering section as the touchdowns rolled on. Parallel to this situation, we saw the Junior High Bomber football team remain victorious and come through with yet another championship. CCHS was full of pigtails, jeans and square dance dresses when Sadie Hawkins reigned for a day. Activities centered on a Friday noon hootenanny. CJOC provided square dancing music. That evening, approximately 200 students attended a dance, but the students' council had to dip into council funds to make ends meet. The dance was quiet and enjoyed by those participating. A point could be made that there must be something wrong somewhere if a dance like this can't (or won't) be supported by the student body. A contrasting note to recreation was the mid term exams. Thankful these maladies are over we can table any results for another while. Since no break is provided here we must wait for the Remembrance Day weekend for a little relaxation. That might only be a faint hope considering CCHS will be par- ticipating in the ceremonies. We must not forget the dead.
