She speaks from first hand knowl- edge as a woman, mother, journalist, landlady of a hippie hostel and very much aware Canadian. In an interview Tuesday Miss Callwocd placed part of the blame of unhappy youth upon the foster parent situation where children are placed for money, not because someone wants them, "As the kid becomes more and more damaged by the si- tuation, he becomes less and less likeable, and I find that kid Is the high drug risk, "Your security threshold is established by the way you're raised very early in life wheth- er or not you are easily made afraid of people, eas? to break easily down. hurt, Your etrengtlis or weaknesses are all a result of what happened to you when you were very small.

The slender 19-year-old says that "it's the easiest job to work your class schedule around." 'It's not exactly like driving tor Sandra told an interviewer. "Turning the steer- ing wheel on one of these things is hard work. 'I concede that men make much better bus drivers than women do. They're stronger." Sandra had trouble at first maintaining discipline among the high school boys who ride with her. 'I think It's because I'm so close to their age, so they chal- lenged she said. "But it's getting better now. Fm more relaxed and so are they." Sandra drives for Boise's Hill- side junior high school in the morning and for Borah high school in the afternoon.

Shoppers eager to save a mckle or two, flocKed downtown only to discover they had a ticket beside a red meter and put money in the yellow meters and generally had a hullabaloo time. It was very obvious to the businessmen this system would not work so city council was requested for permission to have all meters free, with a two- hour time limit. Tom Nutting, city manager was instructed by city council to implement the program when the as- sociation provided the appropriate signs and veri- fication. All would have been rosy again, except for the am- bitious association which advertised downtown parking was now free for all shoppers to take advantage of. Much to the shock of downtown customers this Saturday, many tickets were given to those cars beside red and blue meters. What happened? They jumped the gun, that's what happened. Signs for the meters have only been approved this Monday by the association at a cost of and the program had not yet been cleared with the city police How generous it is of the association to pay lor all those tickets received on Saturday for tha misinterpretation somewhere along the line. But never fear, courageous downtown shoppers, help is on the way.
