(BUD.Tully, principal of Ukiahl, has notified members of the Qass of 78 that their commencement exercises will be held on Saturday, June 10, at a time yet, to be set, but preferably before the late afternoon and early evening winds take over in Anton Stadium. There are some seniors — by no means all of them — who feel that this is a break from the traditional Friday night graduation. But Tully, back in 1965, was chairman of the first outdoor graduation held by UWahi in Anton that was a Ix-eak with tradition brought on by necessity. Now, in a message to all members of the Class of '78, Tully is calling upon seniors at Ukiahi to "join with me in starting a new tradition, a tradition which will result in the best graduation of all times." , ' Qass officers have asked Tully to give his rationale for holding the 1978 Ukiahi Commencement Exercises on a Saturday, June 10. The last Ukiahi senior class to graduate from the present Ukiahi campus,- nearly 50 years after it opened, has been answered as follows by Tully The last UkiaHi senior class to graduate from the present Ukiahi campus, nearly 50 years after it opened, lias been answered as follows by Tully in explaining why lit is now necessary, he feels, to change to a "new tradition" of Saturday graiduations at Ukiahi, present and future. "I based my decision,"says community, parents, faculty ^d administration have not, been pleased with our graduation ceremonies Over . the past 10 years. "With these factors in mind, Iifeviewed what I consider the reasons which have contributed to the less-than; desirable conditions for our commencement exercises~and have come up with the following rationale: "Determination of a graduation date has a direct bearing on our final examination schedule and total program. "Teachers have conveyed to the administration the difficulty of giving junior-senior examinations on different days. In the past we have crammed many activities into one day; i.e., senior breakfast, graduation, rehearsal, arena scheduling ~ and commencement'. "This l^as meant that we have not been able to prepare graduates properly for the , ceremony, and teachers and counselors have had to make 'unrealistic deadlines, as to whether seniors have completed graduation requirements. "Thus,' by . the time of graduation, all parties concerned feel the pressure, and many times errors have been made in the haste. The result of this hurried pace is a ceremony that is less than adequate for the occasion. The ceremony, itself has been characterized by rush, rush, rush, and the general attitude of everyone seems to have been 'let's get it over with!' Mendoseta chapter of the California Teachers' Association has asked the CTA office in Burlingame to remove sanctions placed on the Ukiah Unified district nearly a decade ago. Levied in 1969 because teachers then had "concerns" about the educational direction of the district, and felt no meahingful progress being made in salary and other negotiations,' the sanctions, in effect, were meant to alert teachers contemplating moving into the Ukiah district that all was not well. Now, Carolyn Griddle, kindergarten teacher at Calpella and president of Mendoseta, has written the home CTA office in Burlingame, asking that sanctions on the Ukiah Unified district now in effect be lifted. In a letter to the CTA, with copies sent to Ray Worster, president of the Ukiah Unified board of education, and Supt. W.O. Murphy, Mendoseta's president notes: "The members of Men- Hickey speaks to RPEA meet The Retired . Public Employees Association of Mendocino County held their first meeting of 1978 on Friday, Jan. 20, in the Community Room at the Financial Savings Building. A sack luncheon- along with salads and desserts, was served before the meeting. The speaker for the day was Hays Hickey, retired captain of the California Highway Patrol, and a candidate for the Ukiah City Council. Many issues were discussed, and a lively discussion on the need for better public transportation in the City of Ukiah for the elderly was one-of the major topics. doseta feel that the Ukiah Unfied school board is bargaining in good ffiith, as reflected in the creation of an effective budgetary advisory^ committee to establish priorities within the district. "Therefore we request that the California Teachers Association remove sanctions from the Ukiah Unified school district," President Criddle of Mendoseta notified the CTA in her letter earlier this month. Thus far there has been no Shupe studies Japanese power sources Jim Shupe, candidate for city council in the March 7 election, recently returned from Japan, where he visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Suzuka and investigated the new zero pollution manufacturing plants and the new low head hydroelectric turbines in use at these plants. Shupe feels that there is a possibility for an alternative source of electric power using the outflow waters of Lake Mendocino and that possibility should bie, investigated thoroughly for city use. Blind Disabled Center meeting The Blind Disabled Action Center Inc. will hold it's next board meeting Jan. 31 at 1789 Lockwood Drive, UkUih, at 10 a.m.. On the agenda will be personnel matters, research funding, and progress reports on activities. This meeting is open to the public. For further information, call the office at 468-1976 or call Bob Kuder at home at 4626994. CTTA notification that sanctions formally have been dropped, but it is expected to be a mere formality. The fact that the Ukiah Unified district board of education and the administration have been meeting periodically over many months with Mendoseta and CTA representatives to review salaries, benefits, programs and priorities appears to have led to the request to drop sanctions. Opening of a new, big high school next September also may be a major factor in entting sanctions.

"A Saturday graduation also allows time for parents, relatives and friends to arrive, to prepare for, and to enjoy theceremony. Friday evening, 6:30 p!m. exercises' put a timie strain on parents and visiting relatives. "Since the inception of outdoor graduation in 1965, of which I was overall chairman, there has been only one graduation night when the weather was not absolutely miserable —strong winds and abject cold. "I sincerely believe that if you discuss this change from Friday to Saturday graduation with alumni, parents, relatives and friends, they will agree with me that a more orderly and relaxed day to prepare for, gradiiaticHi will result from this change. In addition, you seniors will be miich more relaxed because the only objective for that day will be your graduation from high school (after 12 to 13 years of hard work)—one of th^ most important days in your life. "Finally, the senior claps will be able to add another acitivity, or several, to its final two weeks. "Please join with me in starting a n^w tradition, a tradition which Will result in the best graduation of all times," Tully urged the Class of '78. • ' Outdoor graduations appear to be a continuing tradition at Ukiahi, even with the opening of the new Ukiahi Low Gap campus next September, and a Class of, '79 commencement as the first class graduated frOm the new high school, a year from this June. market report AXEMAN EICHLER.

NEW YORK (UPI) Stocks turned mixed today in fairly active trading as investors weighed the dollar's continued'weakness on foreign exchanges against fourth- quarter earnings reports at home. The Dow Jones industrial average, off about two points at the outset, was ahead 1.83 Through Monday, the closely watched Dow*average had fallen about 60 points in the first three weeks of the new year. Analysts said this loss presented many bargain hunting opportunities. Investors were uneasy about the dollar falling in Europe early in the day. It was steady in Japan, however. The currency showed strength early last week prior to President Carter's messages to Congress. But the dollar has slumped since Thursday. Brokers found little new in Carter's recent proposals economic and tax proposals. \ : I 166 E. GdBBl'"'"Fpr?i4 Birds 462-0990 tRAVEL NOTES By YvoiiKe L. Metxier Skiing becomes more popular each year, not only for swinging singles, but as a family activity'. This has resulted in an ever increasing nurjiber of packages to almost every ski area in the world. In addition to still popular weekend ski trips by bus, and airline charters to European slopes, the Rockies offer an enormqus variety of packages to attract greater numbers of skiers each year. I recently checked out the skiing areas west of Denver and can report that Vail, keystone, Breck'enridQe and Copper Mountain are offering challenging skiing this season. Keystone opened their slopes a day early this year and the skiing was terrific; all lifts operating and plenty of instructors for those who want, or need, instruction. Best days to ski are Still mid-Week if you Want to avoid those long lift-lines, particularly at Vail. TWA has published an exceptionally fine brochure on the Rockies, listing just about anything you might want to know about each area. The brochure includes information on elevation, difficulty of the slopes, length of the runs, nuhiber of lifts and capacity, lift prices, facilities for children, annual snowfall and descrjptive information about accommodations. The brochure fully describes 17 ski resorts, including rates for all major hotels, lodges and inns. This excellent reference guide enables you to pinpoint the exact cost of your ski trip and to compare the other sports facilities arid activities offered in each. It's comprehensive, and easy to read. : Stop in for a copy of the brochure, choose your departure date and.We'll do the rest. Remember,, it's best to book early in order to obtain your first choice of accommodations. A-1 tRAVEL PLANNCM 4W-B East Peckins. Street ^ 462-2931 M-Th9-5:30 PrI. 9-4 Sat.
