Prisoner education considered EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government is study- ing the possibility of outside education programs for prisoners in Alberta correc- tional institutes, says Solicitor-General Helen Hunley. "What form it will take I cannot say right she added, commenting after the release of a final report on a 14-month pilot project in prisoner education run by Grant MacEwan Community College. Miss Hunley expressed her approval of such programs as the one offered by the college. "I think it's the kind of thing China refuses bequest that works best to get people back into the community." In the pilot project, 66 prisoners from the correc- tional institute at Fort Saskatchewan, 10 miles northeast of here attended classes at the Edmonton college from January, 1973, to February, 1974. The prisoners took either the regular com- munity college courses or a self-study program. Hy Sheinin, director of con- tinuing education for the college, views the project as a foot-in-the-door for a perma- nent program in the province. "I know our project had dif- ficulties, especially with members of the staff at the correctional institute, but we did not fail our he said. "We convinced our students that there was a group of peo- ple in the community who were concerned about and willing to help. them "Secondly, we were able to fail without guilt, admit errors and rectify them as quickly as possible." Of the 66 prisoners who entered the project, about 25 completed their programs. "Some of the students were released and went on to jobs rather than completing their programs, while others unfor- tunately ran into more trouble. "Other problems in comple- tion stemmed from increasing resistance from the Fort Mr. Sheinin said. "As the program progressed and resistance increased, comple- tion decreased." He said friction resulted because the college, in the eyes of prison officials, overstepped the bounds of the agreement with the attorney- general's department. "There were certain areas which the Fort staff felt we should not be concerned such as proper medical atten- tion or proper clothing. But we were, and many times we bothered them about such things." Mr. Sheinin illustrated by citing an incident where one of the prisoners was asked to be a member of the college basketball team and staff at the correctional institute "wouldn't grant permission because they felt it would re- quire he be brought in too many extra times for prac- tices and games." "They didn't want to extend the privileges of the institu- tion to take in the fact he was also a student. "But you can't hand an in- mate privileges and then, when he reaches out for them, slap his hand." WINNIPEG (CP) China has turned down the contents of a Winnipeg drug store bequeathed to that country by the owner as part of his million estate. Henry Carman Ruttan, a widower, died last December at the age of 74 and left his estate of to his two daughters, grandchildren and friends. However, the contents of his store. Carman Ruttan Phamacal Sciences were bequeathed to China as his first choice. Cecil A. Chapman, an executor of the estate, said he has received word from the Chinese embassy in Ottawa declining the offer. He said no reason was given for the decision. Mr. Chapman said Mr. Ruttan's choice of China was "not a political thing" but was based on his admiration of Chinese medicine. He said Mr. Ruttan felt the Chinese thinking was similar to his own and believed the Chinese people preferred natural minerals and herbs to "high-powered drugs." Mr. Chapman said the contents of the store may now go to the pharmacological division of the University of Manitoba, Mr. Ruttan's second choice. He said the value of the contents is not known.

But realists, including Smith himself who professes to be overjoyed, know that this powerful show of white unity does virtually nothing to solve the problems that threaten to grow worse with approaching independence in neighboring Mozambique. This also is apparent to the thrusting African National Council (ANC) which in the elections for the few allotted black seats all but swept aside the docile African Progressive Party. The Progressives had claimed to represent majority black opi- nion and had been meeting with Smith on possible solutions, on Smith's meagre terms, to black-white problems. In a Salisbury constituency, lor instance, the ANC can- didate took 66 per cent of the vote while the humiliated African Progressive got less than four per cent. This was the general pattern. DEMAND RELEASE Now, obviously, any future meetings toward a settlement will have to include the ANC and even to get them to the table Smith is likely to have to improve substantially on his previous offers. For a start, the council is demanding as a prerequisite the release of more than 50 of its officials now in detention. Bishop Abel Muzorewa, leader of the ANC, said the whites, in giving Smith's Rhodesian Front Party all 50 European seats in the House had "voted in a state of pan- ic." But. in fact, the white solid- arity suggested to some observers more a mood of complacement satisfaction with the comfortable status quo. The trade sanctions by countries opposed to the government's white supremacy policy pinch hard- ly at all and there seems to be an abiding faith in Smith and the fighting men on the borders to preserve their life style. Muzorewa was probably nearer the mark, however, when he said the election result would serve only to harden black resolve against Rhodesian front ''dic- tatorship." Certainly it will spur young Africans into join- ing the guerrilla forces, mak- ing life miserable for many whites, particularly those in vulnerable plantations and other isolated areas where there already has been bloodshed. But the biggest crisis ahead is the decision of the new Portuguese government soon to grant independence to neighboring Mozambique. Whatever form the conversion from colony takes it seems inevitable that Frelimo, the African nationalists, will take over, giving an important morale boost to Rhodesian- Africans.
