Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 11, 1973 The Herald---------------------N Girls write history of Maritimes Youth Hamilton students focus on youth By KERRY ALLEN For the first time in 20 years, students from the northside are attending Hamilton Junior High. They are all Grade 7 students from the area south of the centre line down 5th Ave. N. There are 35 students from Westminster and 9 from Senator Buchanan. The reason for this sudden change is Wilson Junior High was packed. Hamilton was fairly close, so the students were sent despite an extra number of students from the south side. By SANDY SMOLIAK Hamilton's Grade 7 chorus and instructor Carolyn Cun- ningham performed at General Stewart School recently for the 130 kindergarten and Grade 1, 2, and 3 students. They sang Inchworm, Paint Your Wagon, Dona Nobis Pacem and Three Blind Mice. During the last piece, the students were asked to join in. The Grade 7's are looking forward to visiting other elementary schools in the near future. By BARBARA HOWE Tim Hamilton, a new student at Hamilton Junior High, is very pleased to be here. Tim has cerebral palsy and has to stay in a wheelchair but that doesn't stop him from enjoying his school days. To help accommodate a handicapped student, some changes had to be made. The special education classroom, which was on the top floor is now in the basement. There are new rugs, a television, radio and record player. Tim enjoys all his classes very much with his favorite subject being math. He's a great arm-wrestler and can't be beat. Students Bruce Olsen. Jody Skieth, Mark Trebble, Bar- bara Howe, Geoff Cox and Pat Veer have been appointed to take care of Tim. His noon hours are usually spent watching the cheerleaders (his favorite sport) or watching football. ST. LAWRENCE, Nfld. (CP) Three teen-age girls have spent the summer writing a history of this fishing-mining community on Newfoundland's Burin Penin- sula. Imelda Barry, Angela Drake and Marilyn Edwards wrote the 70-page history which traces the growth of St. Lawrence as far back as 1583. Using a Opportunities for Youth grant, they collected the information from amateur historians, senior citizens, churches and other local institutions. "Our information came from many Miss Drake said. "We had free access to many diaries and scrapbooks kept over the years by a number of people in St. Lawrence. We also did research at the Provincial Archives and Memorial University in St. John's and used several history books." Among the incidents dis- cussed in the book is the sink- ing of the Truxton and Pollux, two American warships which struck rocks near St. Lawrence during a winter gale in February, 1942. RECALL QUAKE Other events include the dis- astrous tidal wave which struck the Burin Peninsula after an earthquake in 1929, development of religious in- stitutions in the community and the local Mardi Gras which has become an annual event since 1960.

By LEO GRULIOW Christian Science Monitor MOSCOW, Russia The Soviet Union has a unique seven-million-strong volunteer police force. The "druzhinniki" (detach- ment as they are called, are young people who contribute one evening a month without pay to help the militia (regular police) keep law and order on streets of cities and towns throughout the Soviet Union. This correspondent went on patrol with four young in central Moscow. Except for sudden awareness of the numbers of these police aides the four met four other druzhinniki in the space of five blocks it was one of the most unevent- ful walks imaginable. The only incident was a minor squabble over seating at a sidewalk cafe. Before our patrol could reach the table where a seat was being loudly contested, two other druzhin- niki from a different detach- ment had moved in to settle the dispute. The term "police aides" may conjure up visions of cap- turing dangerous criminals. In fact the druzhinniki are in- structed to leave serious crime cases to the regular militia. A Soviet newspaper has es- timated that on any given day the average druzhinnik's chance of catching a criminal, even a minor offender, is 1 in 5.11 million. In Moscow, a healthily policed showcase city with strict rules about who may live here, the chances are un- doubtedly fewer. Although the Soviet Union conceals crime statistics, foreign residents agree that Moscow has comparatively few muggings, assaults, or other street crimes. The city has almost no night life. Most theatres let out by 10. Most Muscovites are in bed by 11, and the city transportation system shuts down soon after midnight. The druzhinniki carry no weapons only whistles and red cards authorizing them to demand identification from violators of public order. They may require violators to proceed to druzhinniki headquarters or the police station, where a case record may be drawn up, but the druzhinniki cannot make arrests. "Your chief job is to pre- vent Capt. Pyotr K. Lazarev, deputy 'chief of Militia Precinct No. 17, Sverdlov Borough, in- structed our druzhinniki before they went on their rounds. "Hooliganism" covers a wide range of behavior from rowdiness to "anti-Soviet" statements or acts. Most hooliganism is associated with liquor. Western police have drug addicts to cope with. The Russian problem is vodka. The druzhinniki this cor- respondent accompanied were youth patrols. These consist of men and women in their late teens or early 20's.

All had been recruited for druzhinniki duty by the Young Communist League, of which they were members. The youth patrols, concern- ed primarily with looking after young people, dispense with the red armbands that older druzhinniki wear and are indistinguishable among the crowds at movies, clubhouses, youth cafes, and on dance floors and popular streets. Youth patrols encountering troublesome adults can call for assistance from the much more numerous armband- wearing older druzhinniki composed of men, mostly in their 30's. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By BOB GIRBAN Kate Andrews Coaldale The more I think about it, I can't help but shudder at the thought of all the time that is spent in receiving a simple Grade 12 diploma. Approximately six hours a day for about 200 days a year, multiplied by 12 comes to about hours, and the vast majority of that time is spent sitting. Consider your failing health accounted for. Now, taking the Ralph Nader approach, one begins to wonder how much thought, if any, is given to the design of school desks in regards to comfort. And sitting comfor- tably affords one to think better, which brings us to another point mental stimulation to be covered later. Back to seating again, we all, at one time or another, have had the experience of sitting in wooden desks. Like everything else, they have their advantages and disad- vantages. Their basic disadvantage, other than discomfort, is the noise. That creak when you reach into your pocket for a piece of gum or candy, or that groan when you lean forward to communicate with the person in front of you can easily be heard by moochers and instructors alike. But the benefits are many. Wooden desktops are amusing, entertaining, and in- formative. Firm pressure on a pen leaves an indelible mark; therefore, you know that Irv- ing has bad breath; Ralph's feet stink, and Sylvia is con- sidered undesirable. But desktop characters never have last names, fortunately for them, even though these bold declarations were written in 1957. And only in a wooden desk does a student have the opportunity to reach new lows in vocabulary expan- sion. But the modern student seats himself in a fiberglass replica of one of Houdini's early acts, the Time Chair, called so because of the time required to get in and out of one of these desks. The fibreglass desk is con- sidered a great improvement (by whom I don't but I find the feeling of these desks on a cold morning not unlike that of a marble toilet seat. Padding would help, of course, but due to possible vandalism, or to prevent damage in any way, any form of cushioning is used for foot- ball equipment. Therefore, we must turn our attention into improving our minds. In an effort to pass a few of those hours a lit- tle faster during a particular- ly boring class, I have devised a game called "Reward." It is a game played by one (to im- prove competition and even the and requires skill and co-ordination. The pieces of equipment re- quired are two pencils, one with an eraser on the end and one without, and a piece of your favourite candy. To begin, place the piece of candy at the top of your desk and lay the pencil without the eraser at the bottom, parallel to the chair back. The object is to push this pencil with the eraser end of the other one right to the top without tilting it more than 45 degrees. Having done so, you may get your reward, the candy placed at the top of the desk earlier. Now, a few pointers. Place the eraser end dead center of the pencil to be pushed; anywhere else will in- duce an imbalance. Also slow- ly increase velocity as you near the top. You must ac- quire the knack of changing speed uphill in conformity with the gradient attacked. Otherwise you may never become an expert. But while the teacher drones on, it is an instinct that comes by practice sooner with some, later with more, and never with a few. By Grade 12 you should be an ex- pert, you've had hours to practice.
