Campos Corner By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor According to Alex Gilehrist, the city's sheriff, the majority of persons getting into difficul- ty over bad debts "would try to pay if they could." Mr. Gilchrist acts as trate for Small Claims Court, and handles seizures as set out by the court. He said people facing bad debts have not been realis- tic about money. "The younger ones In their early twenties with large bills By KATHY ERDMAN LCI it really all about? Why are you sitting in physfcs, learning about the Lorentz contraction formula? Or in chemistry painstakingly figuring out how many grams of something or other are plat- ed out in so much time? Or in English, analyzing some appar- ently meaningless poem ob- viously written for the sole pur- pose of confusing a student? Or learning the subjunctive mood in French? Or doing anything, for that matter? Perhaps, it's because you want to, though I doubt it. Or maybe you need to, or maybe you have to. Actually, it's just as easy to like a course than to hate it. Why not try to under- stand what the teacher is say- ing and get excited about it (one way or the instead of slouching inertly while the words rebound oft' your brain? Why go to high school any- way? So you can qualify for university, so you can get a '.'better job" even though you would rather be a happy car mechanic? Think what it would be like if everyone was a PhD. I'd rather not think about the dreadful consequences. What do you -want to do after you're through school? Get a job? Bomb around? Freak out? Devote your life to the study of Calansovilfa longifolia? Just what is your place in the Scheme of'things? Or is there a scheme? think about it. A great big YAY to the LCI Bam football team! In the eiciting championship g a me with CCHS, the victorious Rams brought the football back borne again to LCI. Rob Mossey was our most valuable player and was honored at the Southern Alberta Football League's final banquet last week. To celebrate our victory, we had a dance, featuring The Seepy John from Seattle, for Few people deliberately ignore bills Unrealistic altitude to money leads to debt part three have just tried to do too much at once.

After failing to receive pay- ment for whatever time the bus- iness considers just, the account may be turned over to a collec- tion agency, of which there are three in the city, plus Calgary agencies who operate here, If the collection agency fails to obtain results, the cus- tomer is sued in Court for debts under The cred- itor receives a judgment which may involve a seizure ot goods or a wage gamlshee.

After several days of mysterious Inner Council meet- ings and conferences with the administration, it was announc- ed that room 203, a retired classroom, had been transform- ed into a smoking room, where one could go for his treat or treatment, whichever the case might be. Though I don't smoke, I certainly have harrow- ing memories of conjugating verbs and more verbs dur- ing French, 10 in that room. We started off the basketball season with a fun game our Rams .played the Harlem Clowns. Although we not by too much it was a really great game. The school rocked with cheers that could be heard a mile away. The Bams won their first real game of the season by defeating Milk River at the Magrath tourna- ment. When the Hams played the Kaymond Comets, we lost by five points. But, that's OK we still love our Bams! Our Clippers played the CCHS girls last Friday and emerged from tile game with a victory. So you can see, we're off to a great start. Next weekend, on the fourth and fifth of December, LCI is hosting its annual basketball tournament, with teams from B.C., the U.S., and Alberta.

Pant suits a controversy in Cardston High School By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer In a year when midis are the controversy is fashion, it isn't often that a second glance is ta- ken at w o rrt e n' s pants suits which are acceptable wear at almost any occasion, even for- mal ones. Six female students at Card- ston High School were not al- lowed to attend classes this week when they appeared dress- ed in slack suits. Some were sent, home and others had their parents phoned to" bring skirts for them. Mrs. Boy Ingram of Carway told The Herald, "I told my daughter to wear slacks because she has to ride the bus 16 miles and if it ever broke down, she Program planned on family life for Dec, 11 A program on Family Life Education will be presented Fri- day, Dec. 11 at p.m. at the Family Y.

Even though the girls were allowed to wear slacks and then change when they arrived in the school, the task of carrying then- many Books was made more difficult with the addition of an extra change of clothes each day. Students and teaching staff in Lethbridge schools wear pants suits regardless of the weather. Roy Lake, secretary treas- urer of the Cardston school board said the issue of girls wearing slacks to school would be b r o u g h t up at the board meeting, Wednesday. He said it has been under discussion for a year now and different stan- dards had been tried in sonw schools before the skirt policy could be changed. Mrs. Ingrain said, "There is not mucb use in getting the pol- icy changed next September when cold weather is here ROW.

Mr. Ingram said it had been announced over the public ad- dress system, the same day as he complained to the principal and school division, that dress slacks would be accepted attire for girls in the school. H. L. West, principal of the Cardston High School told The Herald fa a telephone interview Thursday, "Dress slacks are ac- ceptable during winter months." The issue seems to be re- solved at the school level, even though the board will have its own evaluation of the topic next Wednesday. watching his game when you'd rather go ihappittg.

A referral of a small debt to a collection agency brings bet- ter tlian average results, to Lelhbridgo at least. Debtors are approached by telephone or personal calls. The attitude of the debtor to the call from the collection agency.will determine how the action is car- ried out. Sometimes there has been a misunderstanding between busi- ness and customer. In these cases matters may be settled with some expediency. Occasionally there is a lack i of communication and many reasons may enter into non- payment of a debt. Usually, however, the people in the collection agency's files "Have trouble all as one manager put it. With the growing emphasis on credit, and the possibility of lowering the legal age to 18, the bad credit picture may changa substantially, said one source. "Usually people are willing to sit down and work out how they can pay off the debt. Per- sonal circumstances account for a lot of the cases. "i family may be counting on two salaries, and have budget- ed right to the limit. One third off that income can mean the difference between survival and disaster."
