KENWOOD Catholic Central High School I always thought this column was written by school intellects I suppose my writing this spoils another theory Anyway, today I happen to be Catholic Central's foremost gossip columnist, but what I consider a topic for gossip is somewhat different from what others have in mind I'd like to dedicate my debut column in journalism to my optimistic five-year-old buddy two houses down from me May I someday be as cheerful as he is at 7 30 a m He definitely is either precocious or a natural motormouth We've been attending classes twenty days so far, which leaves us nineteen school days until mid- semester marks are sent home, or approximately sixty days of classes until the Christmas break Since we started off with around 201 days to tick off, we have 121 school days left from mid- term on, or 181 days left until summer Students council is off to a roaring start with no sign of backfire Fresh activities had little sign of hazing practices However, I have one minor complaint My precious corn- binder was left with a thin film of Ivory Liquid after the car wash Who but frosh wash their vehicles with dish detergent' Traditional Kangaroo court was held with a sober prosecutor and jury who provided justice for some That evening Kathy and the Kool-Aid Kids, a great local band, played to a large and appreciative audience At last the Grade 10's are of- ficial members of our elite high school classes I'd also like to extend the welcome to all of the other newcomers to our school Best of luck, which I mean both sarcastically and seriously A "returning" welcome is in store for Louis Burke, an English teacher and his family Mr Burke was on a one year sabbatical at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland He is working towards his Master Literature in Education As it happens to be a three year course, Mr Burke plans to complete the other two by correspondence Mike Le Blanc, a seventeen year old Grade 12 student at our school is a local celebrity He has his own program on Sundays from three to mid- night on CJOC-radio For one and a half months in the summer Mike had his show every night He plans a future career in radio and he certain- ly has a good start From August 19 to 23, a cheerleadmg clinic was held in Calgary and our senior cheerleaders attended The clinic was primarily for learn- ing new cheers and cheerleadmg techniques They won "spirit stick" one night as well as two superior rib- bons in the evaluations They won the title, most outstanding squad attending the camp They will receive a plaque Now they are entered in an international cheerleadmg competition representing Canada They should know how they fared sometimes in October or November so good luck' The junior high football team, the Bombers, had a few tough breaks their first game, but we all expect better per- formances as the season progresses eh boys' The same holds true for the Cougars who lost in their opening encounter against the Winston Churchill Bulldogs Until they win, no more will be mentioned about them H ins scholarship An Alberta Hotelmen's Association Scholarship of has been awarded to Magdalene Woelcke, graduate of Kate
