Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i-THE LETHBMDQB HERALD-Thursday, October The Herald-------------------- Youth- Sea scouts prepare outdoor privy The mystery of the outdoor privy will be solved this weekend when 8th Lethbridge Sea Scouts observe Sanitation Saturday. About two dozen boys are expected to turn soil in a southside vegetable patch preparing pits and screens in the tradition of an outdoor camp toilet. One lad intends to find out if you can use an old rubber tire for a seat. His friends say they will be satisfied if the backyard bathroom does the job after suitable try out. The Sea Scout crew have some other mad- cap schemes in preparation for the coming winter including a campout in igloos next January. Regular meetings are held Saturday, 3 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. in the Salvation Army Citadel, 1302 4th Avenue S., Lethbridge. DID YOU KNOW? West Germany in the Wahlershausen district of Kassel- Wilhelmshohe banned fluoridation? The fluoridation plant of the municipal water works was taken out of service on April as a result of legal and health considerations. and did you know that prior to banning fluoridation, German Water Engineers threatened strike action if forced to continue to fluoridate? They based their opposition both on the Food Law and on scientific papers which questfoned the alleged reduction in tooth decay. They further regard it as their duty to protect drinking water from any ad- ditives whatsoever and questioned the possibility of resultant damage to health. Did you know a press release from the Borrow Dental Milk Founda- tion stated that Dr. D. Everingham, Health Minister of Western Australia is engaged in a campaign to end fluoridation? Did you know that many countries in Europe have banned fluoridation? We name: Austria, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Luxem- bourg, Norway, Spain, Yugoslavia, Switzerland, .Sweden, West Germany and more recently the Netherlands? We query... why are all these countries banning fluoriefation if it is as effective and SAFE as what we are constantly being told by the various authorities? Are these countries becoming alarmed as a result of reports from the United States and Canada such as the Death and Destruction story in Dunnville, Ontario brought to light in 1967? Further to this the Fluoridation-Hemodialysis tragedy in Ottawa 1968 due to fluoridated water? We have heard it said that, "the harm of fluoride can be denied, but the truth of that harm is on the march and nothing is going to stop Jt."

Commanding Officer-J. P. Credico said .there are 35 cadets this year, nine of which are girls. "I hope we can get a few more girls interested in the corps. Now that they have been officially initiated into army cadets, I see no reason why it will revert to being strictly for he said. The girls are receiving the same training as the boys and are wearing the same un- iform. M. E. Graham, who is in charge of administration work with the army cadets, said they had hoped for an official girls' uniform, but the girls seem content with their current dress. The only stipulation is that the girls must put up their hair. She said army cadets for girls offers the same kind of training as girl guides. "It is a citizenship type training but with military overtones." This week has been declared National Cadet Week and Coaldale X" student honored A Grade 12 student at Kate Andrews High School, Coaldale, has been awarded'a cer- tificate of commenda- tion from the National Merit Scholarship Cor- poration.

'special ceremonies Involving the army, navy and air cadets wiE be taking place. "We ,-had .a retreat ceremony at city hall for senior cadets only. The girls were excluded, only because or rank along with some of the The army cadets have made their first trip of the fall term to Malstrom Base in Great Falls, Mont. Lt. Graham feels the trip was a success and the cadets were able to see the mechanics of the world's defence system in operation. The trip was of particular interest to Lorraine Pawlivsky, 15, one of the new- comers. "I have a brother who has been in cadets for a few years and he always talked about the trips he went on. I figured it was about time I quit being a dummy and got out to learn a few things myself." Cadet Pawlivsky enjoys all the activities of the cadets she has experienced during her five weeks there. "So far we nave started map using, shooting small arms and basic drill. We'll be talcing a first aid course and participating in field training." Fourteen -year old Desere de Vos hopes more girls will join tiw army cadets. She join- ed because she thought it would be fun and has found she enjoys it thoroughly. "Everything's equal between the girls and the boys. We are taught how to shoot, inarching, saluting and parading." She added that it seems awkward taking orders from other cadets who are in the same age group. "The guys are nice, but it is the first time I've ever met.a situation where I bad to take orders from my peers." The girls seem to enjoy be- ing in the corps just as much as. the boys like having them there. Terry Penney, 16, who has been in army" cadets fora few years, feels the girls would probably make better soldiers than the boys. "I think they have the abili- ty to learn foster. They seem more attentive, more alert" Cpl Penney can see ao problems with having the girls there, but "it's really too soon to tell." "All in all girls are a good idea and yoa really can't say no to women's lib." Howard MacDonald, 16, said the girls are good for the cadets and Brad Stephenson, 14. agreed. Cpl. Stephenson said the dis- cipline with the girls is easier ihan with the guys. "The girls are given eqaal opportunities and expect to be treated ac- cordingly." Other girls in the corps include Valerie Pawlivsky, Bernice and Beverly Orich, Bonnie Skieth, Wendy Triska, Pat Vair and Gail Webber. 'Training Officer Dennis R. Jorgenson said a new training syllabus was instituted this year but follows closely to the program of last year. The course is open to anyone between the ages of 13 and 19 who Is not a member of any other cadet organization, is physically fit and approved by the commanding officer. The cadets are taught citizenship and leadership and learn map using, instruc- tional techniques, small arms safety and drill. They also participate in various .tours, including other bases and museums. The culmination of the training year is two to six weeks at summer camp. Local junior cadets attend Camp Vernon B.C., during the summer months. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By EMILY BURKE Catholic Central High School With the old school (new for some) well greeted, we now have some definite or still slightly muddled things to see the muddled being the Frosh of our school. lii the first week of September our Frosh was held. This year a new idea of assigning Frosh to seniors was instituted. It was successful and everyone participated. Frosh was a major initiation into a full swing of school ac- tivities. Moving right along, it is hard to believe mid term ex- ams lie around the corner waiting for unwary students. With this academic prospect, we can turn to extra auricular ac- tivities. This includes the choir, running into its second semester, and a debating club just started. The club needs a few more students to send it on its way to a good foundation The choir was disappointed with too few people turning out. Another organizational aspect of the school comes in the democratic form of our students' council. Rick Hovan, president, conducts the assemblies which the-student body appreciates. Success of the council was shown by the first dance held in September. A new system of guest passes is being tried this year. A top team exists in the CCHS Cougars. To date, the team has three wins and one tie and is looking forward to the top spot in the Western Conference and a championship for CCHS this year. Trinkets of information include.. the school has gained four new teachers, two in business education, one in the English department and another in Home Economics the drama sphere is aiming for a large scale production to be staged at the Yates, possibly in January buses to plays in Calgary are running again this year. the junior high band is progressing very well. New ventures and old depend on the general spirit of the students. Very important representatives of CCHS appear in our Bombers. This football team has yet to lose a game, with five wins total. This trend should hold us all the way through the season. We are proud to have been appointed Exclusive dealers of
