Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE ICTHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, August M, 1972 Korean talks delay The first plenary session of tlic Red Cross talks concerning the peaceful ramificalion of North and South Korea were expected to take plaeu in October. Tho meetings between North and South Korean Red Cross delegations were for the purpose of establishing methods by which sep- arated families could visit relatives, trace their whereabouts, mail, etc. The idea that the strongly anti Communist authoritarian gov- ernment in Seoul ami the equally rigid Communist regime in Pyong- yang could bring themselves to the point of any kind of communication led to all kinds of speculation lead- ing to a pious hope that Korea would, in the not too distant future-, he reun- ified. Karly euphoria has been dissipaled. The talks have been postponed indef- initely because neither side can agree who will be allowed to participate, what news coverage is to lie allow- ed, and where the conference will he held. The delay can only give comfort to hard-liners of both sides those in the South Korean government who oppose any contract with the Commu- nists, and those in Pyongyang who advocate llio destruction of President Cluing Ilee Park's regime by either subversion or outright military force. The motivating factor in the at- tempt to come together is that neith- er nation can depend on tho sponsor- ing super power to fight out tho divisive issues militarily, and there is nothing to indicate that this situa- tion has changed since the joint North South Korean declaration of .Inly 4. South Korea of course, blames the North for the delay. No one ''outside" knows what the North has to say about il. because there are m> foreign newsmen in 1'yong- About all that can be said now is to express a hope that early delay does not mean the end of efforts to establish dialogue. No one was pre- dicting Ihal accommodation would be easy. On Ihe other band no one predicted that some foundation for agreement had not been pre-arrang- ed. This now seems to be the case. There are 27 years of conflict and bitterness to be overcome, and as an American diplomat in Seoul is re- ported to have said, "nobody hates Ihe way brothers hate." Prison alternatives Recently The Herald, along with some oilier papers in Canada, car- ried a Yardlcy Jones cartoon showing a man arriving in prison. The guard accompanying him to the eel! asks, '.'tad how long do you intend staying here, sir Obviously, the refer- ence was to the policy of the Canadi- an government to get as ,many peo- ple out of jail as fast as possible n policy which dismays some citizens especially when a few parolees hava gotten into much-publicized trouble. These unfortunate instances are not apt to deflect the government from its search for prison alternatives. Realization that incarceration has proved to be an ineffective way of dealing wilh offenders against the law has resulted in widespread ex- perimentation in other means o treating the convicted. Studies have repeatedly shown that prisons tend to create criminals rath- er than bring about correction. Some authorities in the field of corrections estimate that no more than 15 per cent of today's prison population needs to behind bars for reasons of public safety. Consequently the trend is to empty the prisons and develop non institutional correctional p r o- grams in local communities. Labelling this approach as 'radical' or 'do-gooder' runs against the fact that it has been adopted in California during the administration of Govern- or Ronald Reagan, a man not very likely ever to qualify as either a rad- ical or a do-gooder, ft just makes good sense to try something else from the point of view of stopping bolb Ihe waste of lives and money. While conclusive proof of the ef- fectiveness of the non-institutional ap- proach is lacking, there are indica- tions that it is an improvement. In Florida, for instance, 1.252 prisoners were released in because they were found to have been unconstitu- tionally convicted. Nearly 30 months later a study showed that the recid- ivism rale among them was IT6 per cent compared to a 25.4 per cent rate among another group of convicts who served their sentences and wera normally released. Such data as this lies behind the shelving of plans to buiid new pris- ons in many pails of the United States and Canada. The increasing use of probation and parole make more institutions unnecessary. There are risks involved in freeing certain individuals but they seem worth taking. The strict locking up procedure lias been sending men back into society more disposed than ever to continue a life of crime. We have tolerated that high risk situa- tion for a long time; the new ap- proach seems to hold promise of re- duced risk and deserves support now. L Britain waves the rules T ON'DOX' A positive pleasure: to report that at The Dolphin, Southampton's genuinely medieval inn, when the head waiter shows a couple to their table it is the gcnlleman whose chair he assists with. The female member of the pair is left lo centre her butt unaided, and the less dis- turbance the better. On the basis of this and other investiga- tion too exhaustive to detail here, I can re- port that the women's liljeration movement has not really penetrated the stout counties of Britain, whatever Chelsea swingers say to the contrary. One reason for this is that the English- man ha.s never looked at a woman as a sex object. In fact he doesn't look at a woman, at all, till he is clear of Britain's territorial waters. On home grouml the British male rarely allows his gaze to swell hungrily rm any- thing other thtm a flr-nrf; mini- skirt, torn in Britain as an expression nf Ihe British v.ornar.'s need to Uikf: a (if perale measure f about three inches: to dis- tract the male from potential Derby win- ners.
