At one time, years ago, someone criticized me for following the line of least resistance ]ust moving from job to job, as the situa- tions developed. And it's true; I never really pursued any far- off goal, or planned my lie and career in advance. And yet, erylhing has led up, step by step, to my present position, where I have found my voca- tion, and find more satisfaction in it than anything I have ever For the past eight years, Ernie's vocation has been Mr. Dressup, first appearing as a character on CBC television's preschool program Butternut Square, which later was changed to Mr. Dressiip.

"A lot of It comes from the appeal of Judy's puppets." (Judith Lawrence created Ihe puppet characters seen on Mr. Dressup and is a consullanl-ed- ilor of the program's "She's been wilh Ihe program since it started, and knows the pre-schoolers' point of view thoroughly. In fact, sometimes, in rehearsal, I've called her puppet Casey, be- cause he reacted to a particu- lar situation exactly as my own son, Chris, Although the program is scripted, no dialogue is written out. Each show moves from one situation to the next, with the puppeLs and Mr. Dressup re- sponding and reacting accord- ing lo their own personalities.

Each program is a shared experience, between us and the audience; usually they're joyful, but sometimes they're sad In any case, we hope that in eveTy day's pro- gram there's something that the kids can take and use in their daily life, whether it's a craft, a song, or a way of cop- Ing wilh a problem they may experience." What's Ernie Coombs like In private life? "A great deal like Mr. he answers, "Al- though I hollo? at my own kids a lot more than I do at Casey and Finnegan. Still, we have a lot of fun together, because I can still sec a great deal of life from a child's point of view. I have a lot of hobbies, which I try to involve my children in, but only to the extent that they want; after all, they have their own priorities. "I like sluing, bicycling, painting, restoring old cars and furniture, music, wildlife, and do-it-yourself projects. Some of these things interest my kids now, others never will.

Miss Freeze 'teacher of year' PINCHER CREEK (Special) The board of trustees of the Pincher Creek school division has spent considerable time this year discussing the relative ef- fectiveness of taechers new lo the system in the 1971-72 school year. General evaluation of new staff was favorable. The Alberta School Trustees' Association makes an annual Teacher of the Year Award to the outstanding beginning teach- er in the province. The local board nominated Miss Judith Freeze for the award. Miss Freeze is a teacher of fifth year students at Canyon School. Her nomination was based upon her "excellent attitude, leaching performance and extra commitment with students, par- ticularly in the field of music." Regardless of whether Miss Freeze becomes provincial "teacher of the the board of trustees is pleased that it could recognize her outstanding start as a teacher by nominat- ing her. get together on a lot of pro- jects and have a lot of fun to- gether. Cathy (10) has a real interest in Zoology, and Chris (7) seems Inclined towaid man- ual arts and mechanics. Per- haps he'll finish restoring some of the old cars I have lying about. "My wife, Lynn with a little help from me, operates a nur- sery school, from which we de- rive a lot of satisfaction. Here we're constantly in touch with the pre-schoolers which the Mr. Dressup program is aimed at. Beyond this, though, Is the sheer pleasure of having contact with these 3, 4, and 5 year-olds, which we find is one of the most interesting and pleasur- able stages of development in the human life-cycle. "In later years, when my TV career is over, I hope to con- tinue on with the nursery school, perhaps wilh a number of them, if they can all be op- erated according to the prin- ciples and ideals we've Incor- porated into this one." Asked when his TV career will be over, Ernie says he hopes it won't be for a long time. "I think that I can continue to be an interesting and worth- while figure in the television scene for some years lo come. After all, kids don't care what age you are, or how you look, as long as you can relate to them, and keep them interest- ed. If it's O.K. with the public, and the CBC, I'd like to keep on for another 10 years, any- way. I'll be 55 then, and that'd be a good time to make an assessment and see If we still retain the same set ot values we started out wit h, and we're fulfilling our obligation lo the viewers. And as for Casey and Finnegan, and the rest of the puppets they never hava aged, and they'll stay the same as long as Judy can keep on hiding behind the furniture and sticking her arms up and I think she's good for a long Grain prices Winnipeg Grain Grain quotes Friday (basis High Low Close Flax Nov Dec May 352 S53W 32614 .131 332 336% 328Vi 332V4 332 337'A Jly 333 Rapcsccd Vancouver Nov 284% mVt Jan 282'A 276% 202ft Mar 274 June 270 271% Itapcscerl Thunder Bay Nov Dec May Jly Oats Dec May Jiy 255 255% 263% 91% 25414 253% 26314 88 V4 91 91 Barley Dec May 12614 Jly Rye Dec 121Vi May 126% 120'A 12614 Jly 255 255'i 263% 261 88% 91% 91% 124 Vt 127V4 128% 121'A 126% 126% Beef futures WINNIPEG beef futures close Friday.
