On the whole, the style is deciinirii! in the U.S. with most fashion writers describ- ing it a.s a one-season lad. In Paris, (he trend has also declined. One reason could be that most Parisian prostitutes have adoplcd hot pants and boots as a uniform causing other umiirii shy from them for obvious rea- sons. wives of Uvo k'ovcrnnic'nt offi- cials luvnc'd up al an evening function at his official resi- dence in very short hot panls. In Italy, the Roman Catho- lic Church has strongly criti- cized hot pants and banned anyone wearing them from entering church. Despite this, hot pants are commonlv seen on the .streets and the press is ail in favor of them.

AH the events of frosh week, awards day and the other usual activities a school goes through at the beginning of the semes- ter are now oki news so 1 will spare you the agony of going over them agiiin. Besides, everyone is settled in now and we're almost halfway through the semester and get- ting restless for Christmas. The big new for Grncle 12 students is that we might have to write final departmental ex- aminations. This will probably be rough for students w h o think they are finished with certain subjects at the end of each semester and will have to do a refresher to bone up again. However, the teachers think this may be a fairer way of finding out just how much Lethbridge Grade 12 students actually know in relation to other schools in the province and perhaps this rnake.s sense. But a lot of Grade 12s will be grumbling mutter, mutter. time you're at a Ranis' football game make sure you take note of the players' coif. It seems that a rule was in- troduced this year stating that any person with hair an inch and a half below his helmet would either have to get a hair- cut or could not play. This left i the long-haired players in quite a dilemma but in many cases 1 the hair stayed. As a result the team lest a few of it.? good rookies and old members that's what it is. Nevertheless they've done fairly well for themselves so far, but it's still too early in the season to tell if our "long- hairs" wil be missed. To me it's a silly rule, it's not the hair which makes the man, it's the man himself. I have to commend Mr. Po-j karney and members of the' band on the great job they're j doing tliis year. I think they're tremendous and so do the rest of i us right? But we also know j they need uniforms.

Schill of New Dayton, deputy area commissioner, presented the four gold cords at a pot-luck supper attended by mothers, invited guests and several girl guide and brownie companies and packs. On Friday the Jen girls will be presented with their certifi- cates by the Honorable Dr. J. W. Grant MacEwan, Lieuten- ant-Governor of Alberta at the provincial parliament building in Edmonton.

Stores, obviously sensing the end of a trend, were sell- ing them off with price cuts up to 75 per cent. In Communist, countries, hot pants have received a mixed reception. They have yet to come to Russia in any significant quantities and are unlikely to be popular for reasons of cli- mate and conservatism. In Warsaw, h o w ever, hundreds of attractive brown- legged Polish girls sauntering on the streets left no doubt that 1971 was hot pants year in Poland. In Prague too, hot pants came to dominate the fash- ion scene. Worn mostly by the 15 to 35 age group, hot pants combined with the min- iskirt, all but pushed out midi and maxiskirts at least as far as summer wear was con- cerned. v DlMNIK 'Inserted by the Dimnik Alitermon Committee e I manuals and experts on TV and radio, young people are i trying to prove I'm to ]ump to lhc grown up?
