Next to Bank of Montreal profession leads law reform movement' By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer Lawyers, both individual- ly and as a profession, are in the forefront of law re- forms, a local lawyer said Thursday. The legal profession is not a defender of tKe status quo. "We don't make the Elaine Thacker told the weekly meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs. The Law Society of Alber- ta was instrumental in the establishment of the Insti- tute of Law Research and Re- form, Mr. Thacker said, and the institute can be credited for a number of changes. The lowering of the legal age and the establishment cf the crimes compensation pro- gram are two areas where the law reform institute has suc- cessfully lobbied for change, he said. Answering a criticism that lawyers are more interested in their standard of living than in serving the public, Mr. Thacker said that na- tional statistics on lawyer in- come are not applicable to Lethbridge. These statistics include the salaries received by corpora- tion and tax lawyers in large centres, and don't show the number of hours worked by members of the profession. He said in Lethbridge a lawyer might make from 000 to per year after about eight years of prac- tice. In addition, lawyers take "an awesome responsibility when they build a defense for someone charged with a ser- ious offence." It could mean the difference between a man's freedom and impris- onment, he said. A lawyer can in good con- science defend a person known to be guilty, because it is Ms responsibility to en- sure that the person is dealt with according to establish- ed procedure. If "due process" is not followed, than the person must be acquited, even if the ac- cused is guilty. If it's othre- wise, then "none of us are Mr. Thacker said. Another criticism of law- yers which not true, he claimed, it that lawyers act only for the rich. He pointed to the legal aid system which provides law- yers at government cost to those unable to afford legal services in criminal and many civil matters as an in- dication that lawyers are not solely agents for the rich. Under legal aid, legal ser- vices are provided at a re- duced tariff, and every law- yer must take legal aid cases. And before legal aid was introduced, lawyers had a needy litigant system where legal services were provid- ed at no cost to those unable to retain a barrister. Lawyers also reduce fees for real estate and estate work where the situation war- rants, he said. In summary, Mr. Thacker said that lawyers are just "common folk who are try- ing to balance the family budget end who are hoping that their kids stay off drugs.' Firm dsks an acre acres offered to gov't for park Bell tower removed A bit bedraggled, but still in one piece, the Central School belltower is hoisted aloft for a journey to storage. It is to be eventually restored and placed at a perman- ent site not yet determined. Once gracing the top of the old school which opened in 1909, the bell-tower has 'been sitting forlornly in a corner of the school block at 5th Ave. between 8th and 9th St. S. since the school was demolished last fall.

The charge now is 60 cents and the operators say they reed this raised to 70 cents to increased cosls. The electricity bill increase averages about eight per cent and simply passes on ?o the customer a rate in- crease granted Calgary Pow- er. That increase was 15 par cent.

Glacier Park Co., a Cana- dian firm, failed to get a positive response Thursday when it offered to sell acres of park land to the provincial government, says the manager of the com- pany's Pincher Creek land holdings. Ernest Gietz says his com- pany approached the gov- ernment because it didn't want to. see the land fall tinder foreign ownership. He claimed an Austrian- based firm has expressed in- terest in purchasing the land for recreation develop- ment "This type of land is getting scarce and we feel it should be public said Mr. Gietz. The acre package is about 11 miles southwest of Pincher Creek. The land is in its natural state with trees, hills and streams through- out. It's prime grazing hill area for elk in the he said. The department of the en- vironment land conservation administer said he wouldn't investigate the pos- sibility of purchasing the land unless southern Alberta residents and groups express- ed interest in additional re- creation acres, claimed Mr. Gietz. The Glacier Park Co. at- tempted to sell the land to the government at an acre. Mr. Gietz says his com- pany could get up to an acre from foreign companies and has sold land in the same area for an acre. The department of lands and forests has appraised uncultivated, rocky, hilly and usable land for pasturing purposes in the Pincher Creek area at an acre.
