But now, Bigger and Better Ulan ever, we have entered the glorious realm o. school He work and with an extra large sizet chunk of vim, vigour, zest, anc zeal. School spirit is surging through the student body anc bouncing off the walls at a dou- ble quick pace. LCI is really go- ing to blossom and do greal things this year! After all we're the greatest high school, aren't we? The crowning touches are be- ing added to our beautiful two million dollar addition as work- men lay the last few tiles and screws and pound busily in corners. We are now the proud posses- sors of a second gymnasium, a larger library, offices with wall- to-wall carpeting (not just wall- to-wall people fabu- lous new art and band facil- ities, a beauty culture area, lan- guage labs with earphones that pinch just a little, beautiful chemistry and physica labs, and numerous walkways and stairs of concrete the latest fash ion in buildings. But, at noon hour, the high- light of the school is our ultra- modern cafeteria which is oper- ated by the students of LCI. Be- sides serving beverages (cof- fee, for those who bring then- lunch, the cafeteria offers tempting hamburgers, hot-dogs, french fries, and, every day, a hot meal the works for only eighty-five cents. Since the seating capacity is four hundred students, we eat lunch in two shifts of fifty min- utes each. One group enjoys the luxury not to mention the deliciousness of the cafeteria, while the other half remains in vice versa. This week was officially term- ed Frosh Week. To make cer- tain that the miserable, snivel. ling frosh realized their lowl place and the respect that due to seniors, the grade eleve students helped the grad twelves in making the fros even more miserable. (Actua ly, frosh are rather a jolly lo since they are part of LC now, but don't tell them I sai Before and after classes, th pitter patter of terrified fros feet could be heard amids sweet strains of Jingle Bells frosh attempted to escape from the clutches of the with the ultimate result: th frosh uttered one last wail o "Oh, hail, Most Exalted Sen lor" and slowly succumbed t ordprs from headquarters. Among other things, fros were seen stopping cars, dress ing up, eating garlic, givin free piggy back and horse rides, and getting shavin cream (what delicious stuff! and shoe polish smeared a] over their faces, glasses, hair shirts Of course, on Thursday, frosl and seniors exchanged places Being a senior, I have no fur ther comment.

First Sex-Change Operation Takes Place In Canada TORONTO (CP) Three operations, innumerable hor- mone pills, several electroly- ic hair removal treatments and have made Dianna vhat she is today. "Behold I am a woman and i happy the attractive green-eyed redhead told re- wrters Tuesday. A statuesque five feet nine nches, Dianna is the first per- on to have a sex-change op- eration in all but 0 per cent of the was aid for by the Ontario gov- r n m e n t health insurance Ian. She held a pews conference 'ucsday to display her 36-26- 6 form, first in a black sce- irough pantsuit, then in a rani-skirt, and announced lans to tour the country ex- ilaining her operation. Dianna, a native of Witini- >eg, was anatomically a male ntil last year. She would "evcai her surnarr.e for fear cr elderly parents would be arasscd. An adopted child, Dianna said her parents allowed her to live as a girl from the age of 16 and that she has done television commercials as a woman-and-worked as a pho- tographer's model and a kgal secretary. OUSTED FIIOM CONTEST She said she once entered the Miss Calgary Stampede contest but was disqualified because she could not produce a birth certificate to prove she was female. Now in her late 20s, Dianna began treatments years ago to develop her breasts and other feminine character- istics. In March, 1969, she un- derwent a castration opera- tion in New York and re- turned to Canada a eunuch. After nine months of psy- chotherapy and psycho-analy- sis, along with several otliflr persons who wanted their gen- tler changed, her operation was sanctioned by the authori- ties, sire said. In April a team of doctors and University of Toronto Medical men operated at To- ronto General Hospital on her genital organ. "She had a "touch-up" operation a month later, she said. I feel wonderful" she told newsmen. "I have not changed in personality, only anatomically." Dr. Leo Wollman of New York, a psychiatrist and gyne- cologist who performed the in- itial operation, told the news conference he has had 110 sex-change patients and has treated 664 people who feel they are men trapped in female bodies or vice-versa. MAY BEAR CHILDREN He predicted that within 10 years a man may be able to change sex and bear children. Doctors may be able to trans- plant a uterus "once we get this rejection problem he said. Would she marry? "Maybe Jackie will tire of On- she replied. Ness has served at Green Acre as cook since the opening of tl; lodge. Special guests for the anm MRS.

NIGHTSI AVENUE SHOES McFARlAND BLDG., LETHBRIDGi Ann Landers DEAR KN LANDERS: I have friend who knows everything. Yesterday she announced at our card club that any illness can be cured by eating certain foods. She went into great detail about "earth remedies" which have baffled medical science for centuries. Her grandmother, she said, handed down many such cures. Among the examples, sho cited an aunt who was bedridden with crippling arthritis. After throwing out all her medicine and eating only leche nuts for two months she returned to her career of teaching ballroom dancing. Her sister, she said, cured herself of cancer by drinking cucumber juice and sleeping in the backyard on an ant hill. Then there was a cousin who got rid of a goiter by wearing a necklace of pennies soaked in olive oil. I could go on but I think you get the idea. I know this sounds crazy but my friend took an oath on the family Bible that it is all true: Mat do you make of it? Figure It DEAR CAN'T: Nearly every person you talk to can re- late at least one story about a "cure" for which there is no msdical explanation. I have no objection to anything that works, provided the sick person goes to a legitimate doctor first and steers clear of phonies. Over two billion dol- lars a year is spent on fake cures. Medical quakery is one of the most lucrative rackets going. My advice is this: If doctors can't help you, try the gimmicks providing your doc says it can't hurt you. But don't put out any money. DEAR ANN LANDERS: No lectures, please. I've lectured myself enough. What I need now is some sound advice and I don't trust my own judgment. I entered college at 16 a super-brainy whiz kid, but dumb as a dodo in the ways of the world. I did the four years in three, graduated in June with honors. Sounds beautiful so far, doesn't it? Hold the phone. I am five and a half months pregnant. The man is married age 24, a graduate student whose wife is putting him through. She's the quiet, mousey type with a double set of adrenalins works two 8-hour jobs. It's too late for an abortion so I'm left with two choices: A home for unwed mothers or a Mexican divorce and a quick marriage. I am sure I could get my sweetheart to marry me if I turned on the heat. What do you say? Who Couldn't Count DEAR GENIUS: Leave the heat alone. Sounds as if you've turned it up too high already. If you break up tliis man's marriage you'E regret it. He needs a woman with a triple set of adrenalins two to put him through school and one to keep him home nights. When romantic glances turn to warm embraces is it love or chemistry? Send for the booklet "Love Or Sex And How To Tell The by Ann Landers.
