The purpose of Frosh activi- ties was to make the new denls realize Ihey are part of LCC but also to make Uicra re- alize: "seniors are supreme." Most of the students are now settling down to some serious study between the coffee breaks and Ihe evenings out. There is the thought in most minds that mid-term exams and mid-term paper deadlines are similar to Christmas coming fast. Student representative elec- tions are being held Oct. 13. Seven offices are open lor the representatives and campaigns got under way this week.

Rick Ervin, photo Canadian forces base surgeou Woman takes jet training program gram at LCC is introducing a new program by including fenc- ing wilh the rest of the activi- ties that will be offered for sec- ond semester courses. JYiss Kubick, Lhe instructor, said fencing will give variety to the program. She mentioned that it is not as. expensive as some sporU and docs not re- quire any extra facilities. Physical education programs offered at the college include acqualics, social and folk danc- ing, men's and women's aclivi- lies class, tumbling, gymnas- tics, low organized games, bad- minton, volleyball, golfing, sofl- ball, karaie, horsemanship, wrestling and weight training. H is sort of nice to knov; we have all Lhcse opportunities since we're living in Ihe era of the bulge. Physical education is compul- sory for LCC nurses and law en- forcement students. N'ot only does the program enable nurses to learn proper methods of backrubs. hut also conditioning problems they may encounter in their courses. Tliere are now 73 nurses ac- tive in the program. Law enforcemcnl students k-arn self-defense and gain the physical filness necessary for their program. There is also a marked inter- est in club activity. Many clubs have already been organized and are selling up plans. They include, rodeo, ski, hockey, dala-proccssing and rally clubs.

"One o[ the biggest slie explains, "are the psycho- logical factors. "I can say I've had a fair amount of jet experience but it's one thing entirely to go up as a casual passenger where you can'l go wrong and then to go up as a student.
