W.dn.iday, Otlobtr 17, Wl THI IfTHMIDOE HEKAID 37 TEENAGE SCHOOL TRUSTEE Benjamin Levin, 19, Winnipeg's first teenage school trustee, has pledged to involve his constituents in education decision-making roles. He stressed to volers during his campaign that he would have a more accurate prospective of students' views than would older candidates. He received votes in Ward 3 of the Seven Oakes school division. Teenager makes grade WINNIPEG teen-ager studying honors his- tory at the University of Man- itoba, who campaigned on a pledge to involve his constitu- ents in decision-malting roles, won election in early October as trustee in a Winnipeg school division. Nineteen-year-old Benjamin Levin, who sees himself in his new role as an innovator who will fill a liaison role between students and adults, is the city's youngest ever school trustee. He received votes in Ward 3 of the Seven Oaks school division, the second highest of 10 candidates. The three candidates polling the most votes were elected. Interviewed between classes at the university, Mr. Levin said he stressed to voters dur- ing the cc'.npaign he would have a more accurate perspective of students' vies than would older candidates. Trustees tend to make their decisions too hard and fast, he said. He will aim to be flexi- ble "We want to get everyone into decision-making he said. Community involvement could be improved by bring- ing parents into the schools as volunteers and support per- sonnel under the provisions of recent provincial legislation allowing classes to be handled by non-teaching personnel. "It's ridiculous to pay a day for a substitute teacher to do toothing." Mr. Levin said he was elected after "almost a pro- fessional campaign" in which he had about 90 young people knocking on doors in the ward. He did no mailing, but printed too leaflets, one dis- cussing issues and one outlin- ing his qualifications, which were distributed by his sup- porters. Discussing education issues he said he would like to see an experimental school set up in the division. It would be an education laboratory where different techniques could be examined and perfected be- fore being introduced to the classroom. Mr. Levin said such a school could have prevented some of the failures of the open-area schools in the dis- trict, where a number of classes and different subjects are taught concurrently in the same room. If the scheme bad been tried in an experimental school, staff would have learned to work more effec- tively and kinks have been ironed out before the system was introduced in reg- ular schools. Mr. Levin has lived in the ward all his life. He is a for- mer president of West Kit donan collegiate student coun- cil and was on the provincial championship team on a tele- vision high school quiz pro- gram. Boyle's column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Dentists aren't likely to have an unemployment prob- lem soon. Despite the spread of preventive dentisty, Ameri- cans still have a billion un- treated dental five for every person. About one out of eight lost all their teeth. There was no women's lib- eration movement among the ladies of the court of Montc- zuma, Aztec ruler. Although chocolate wns the royal drink of the Aztecs, it was sternly forbidden to the women of the court. Everyone knows that some lizards can shed their tail in order to escape an enemy. But can you name the only living mammal that can per- form this feat? It is the gar- den dormouse of Europe. Tho venomous little black widow spider's poison is more powerful than that: of a rattle snake but is rarely fatal. Only four or five of the or more persons bitten annually by these spiders died. NAMICS What do the names Eve, lioh and Otto hnve in com- mon? They can be spoiled for- ward or backward with the snmo result. Sweet peril: The death rate from diabetes rose dramati- tripling in some a recent 12- year period, according to a World Health Organization study. Physicians cited the rising use of carbohydrates in the diet as a major cause' Strong medicine: In Russia, some doctors use a mixture of garlic extract and vodka to treat gout and rheumatism and to dissolve kidney stones. Patients find the mixture doesn't do much for the breath but does make them feel better. Out on a limb: What is the best shade tree? Basing their choices on artistic preferancc, disease resistance, and suc- cess in planting, a group of landscapers listed these as the top 10 shade trees: Pink oak, red maple, honey locust, sugar maple, red oak, linden, ash, Norway maple, sweet gum and birch. DOCTORS ON STRIKE SAN JOSK (Renter) The M3 doctors employed by Costa Rica's stale social security service began Monday on un- limited strike for an 82-per-ccnt pay rise. They also want im. proved technical facilities and belter medicines for patients covered by Ihe service, a spokesman for Uio strikers said. He is a member of the se- nate of the university and manages the university's bas- ketball team. Mountie rustler patrol covers wide area KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) Sgt. Ab Willing rides around in a pickup truck in ranch clothes, face weatberbeaten from being outdoors. The average guy out to slice a cow or two from somebody else's herd would never suspect him of being head of the RCMP's rustler patrol. Sgt. Willms, 46, a Mountie for 23 years, covers square miles of ranching country with Constables Dave Ayres and Bob Scory and they all are on 24- hour call. Working out of the Kamloops subdivision, the three chase cat- tle thieves from the Canada- United States border north to the Chilcotin, from the Fraser Valley to the Alberta border. If a rancher is watching for rustlers and is missing a cow or steer, they get a call. The British Columbia Beef Callle Association based here offers a reward for infor- mation leading to the arrest and conviction of a cattle thief. Con- scientious sportsmen's groups and police throughout the prov- ince also are on the lookout. Last year, the B.C. Beef Cat- tle Grower's Association says, 440 cattle were stolen. That same year, Sgt. Willms and his men charged and convicted 14 rustlers. Strangely, all 14 pleaded not guilty, oven when spprehendcd with the beef in their posses- sion. One man at Vernon got three years in psnitentiary for killing six cows. Sgt. Willms said one of lu's men saw the culprit's truck going -p into the hills, but lost track of it. They waited, and met him coming down. The man refused to stop, even with a flasher light on the vehi- cle following him. Finally, he jammed on his brakes, jumped out and headed for the woods. The trio ran him down, found two hindquarters in his truck and located six carcasses. The man still pleaded not guilty. Manila outlaws kill soldiers MANILA (AP) An outlaw band lulled 17 soldiers and wounded 22 who were rushing to reinforce an embattled detach- ment in a southern Philippines town today the constabulary reported. It was one of the deadliest at- tacks on government troops since the republic was founded in 1946. Lanao has been wracked with violence since July, mostly be- cause of political differences, al- though some has resulted from land squabbles and ethnic dis- putes between Christians and Moslems.
