Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December 10, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Poverty probe ends with 188-page report EDMONTON (CP) A na- tional policy to eradicate pov- erty, which could lead to a "form of universal minimum in- should be set up by the federal government, says a re- port of a special project by the Edmonton social service de- partment. The 188 page report is the result of a three year study of ways to load to a reduction of dependency on public agen- cies and a corresponding drop tance to welfare recipients. The final report was signed by research director George Kupfer, research assistant George Diadio and project di- rector Harland Magneson.

It would permit maximum direction of professional staff to fEmilies requiring intensive so- cial service. Fiscal and manpower policies should be planned in harmony, so persons can find jobs mean- ingful both to themselves and to society, the report said. "A public employment pro- gram may be necessary to achieve this goal." was en individual treatment. Patterns of treatment by pro- fessionals in some cases alien- ate clients, the report said. "In such a situation the client feels he is being treated in a depersonalized manner." During the last two years, a treatment team made 10 spe- cific recommendations for the social assistance service svs- tems, including: should have some say in administration of public assistance funds. of social as- sistance should be flexible, bas- ed on specific needs and on the potential of clients. case should be assign- ed to a specific social worker, but teams with representatives of several social work disci- Kn tri share responsibility. to assess progress and1 set future goals should in- volve both clients and team workers.

(AP) When the sun drifts lower and the lights start glittering at the nearby Strip's gambling pal- aces, day begins at the Las Vegas Urban High School. It may sound like an odd time to start classes, but officials are enthusiastic over results since the experiment started this fall. They see it as a breakthrough for a generation of students and a boon for the taxpayers. "We just dscided to plan a school for the convenience of the says School Supt. Kenny Guinn. "It'j set up for the kids who want to work, or have to work, or just don't like to go to school during the day." It's a boon to parents, too. Many work nights in this 24- hour entertainment-gambling centre and sleep days. Now the entire family can be so oriented once the youngsters reach high school age. The Urban High School, a name chosen to avoid confusion with adult education or evening vocational schools, is a regular comprehensive high school that operates during the late after- no' and evening hours. Its classes meet in the build- ing vacated when the students of Va: ay High School leave at rnidafternoon, the end of the normal school day. It is this use of facili- as well as the enthusiasm of students for the new school that augurs well for its future, its wts sty. The school district expected about 200 students to register for the Urban High School. It was a new program this fall, begun in a hurry, with little no- lice to the community. More 600 students had registered when the school stopped enrolling students. About 40 per cent of the stu- dents are dropouts, people who were not -chool last year. It wasn't planned that way, it just happened. "We felt we would get few studen'3 back because of the convenience, said Guinn, "but our main thrust was dropout prevention.' At least 90 per cent of the students at the Urban High School hold jobs; some because they Tant to, others because they have to support families. "It's a great said Gregory Bowse, 17, a junior who works as a dishwasher at the casino in nearby Henderson. "It gives me more time lor my jb." School hours are p.m. to p.m., but students need at- tend only five hours a nignt, making for some schedule flexi- bility.

Tito cancels Rome schedule ROME (AP) A visit to Rome scheduled this week by President Tito of Yugoslavia has led to violence in Trieste and political tension in Rome. Some Italian newspapers said the visit might be cancelled or postponed. In Trieste, neo-Fascists ex- ploded a crude bomb Tuesday in a bar frequented by Yugo- slavs and tossed a tear-gas grenade into the local Commun- ist party headquarters. No one was injured. Reports of a possible cancella- tion of Tito's visit appeared in the Turin newspaper La Stampa and the Rome daily, II Messag- gero. La Stampa said Yugoslavia had taken offence at a remark by Italian Foreign Minister Aldo Moro. Moro had said the talks with Tito would not encompass any renunciation of "legiti- mate" Italian interests.

Inspector William LaFeuvre, in charge of the fraud detail of the Edmonton police depart- ment, also said that "just be- cause he wouldn't think of rob- bing a the white-collar criminal in an office does not consider himself a thief. Inspector LaFeuvro added that the office character docs not consider himself a thief or criminal when he juggles his employer's books, dips into petty cash or starts systemati- cally looting a stock room. What the average person doesn't seem to realize, Inspec- tor LaFeuvre said in an inter- view, is that "the honest public pays." Most white-collar criminals are "ordinarily honest but suc- cumb to temptations because of outside influences beyond their control." These people are "ter- ribly obvious" and are "the easiest to catch and convict." He contended that blamo for these crimes should not fall on the individual but on what he called "managerial sins." SOME ARE LAX "Lax managers don't imple- ment or keep up safeguards against this sort of tlu'ng. If they did, there would be a lot less of it."

"It can be a promotion pass- over, preferential treatment of someone else, low salary, his w o r k i n g conditions or poor fringo benefits. "But these are not valid ex- cuses. What they did was steal often weird and wondrous ways." Asked about how to combat losses of either money or mate- rials from offices, Inspector LaFeuvre said the basic defence is a well-paid happy office staff.
