Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 17, 1971 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - 27 HOME AGAIN SMILES - Spook an English bull terrior, exchanges smiles with his owner, Jim Rimmer, a park warden at Banff National Pari<, after being separated for more than a month. Spook disappeared from Mr. Rimmer's cabin and was found by a group of hunters. Mr. Rimmer was traced through the dog's tatoo registration. Essay houses find large market for services TORONTO (CP) - Who says cheaters never prosper? Cheating on essays, a quiet fact of campus life for years, is becoming the basis for big business. It's so big, in fact, that American companies made aibout $250,000 selling essays last year-and now they plan to expand into Canada. One U.S. company is training men to manage offices in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Another is planning to install a free phone system for students to use to order essays from anywhere in North America. The trade in purchased essays which students hand in as their own so far has been casual in Canada. Fraternities have been singled out as one of the few organizations to maintain well-stocked essay banks. "Sure there's essay trading between frat members," said John Kenrick, president of the University of Toronto's Inter-Fraternity Council. ON PERSONAL BASIS "But it's all on a personal basis. Our house has a file, but it's only got about 15 papers and they're all old ones." He said the practice among fraternities is dying out. To date, commercialized plagiarism, as this new industry is called, has taken its strongest roots around Boston where the student population exceeds 150,000. Boston also has an adequate labor pool - writers, teachers and graduate students who have fallen on hard times and need the money they can make ghost writing essays. In the U.S. last year the leading essay houses sold more than 10,000 papers at an average cost of $3 a page. This produced close to $250,000. And one company spokesman said the industry wall do an even bigger business this year. School officials said if the practice is allowed to continue a college degree will become increasingly less credible as a certification of a high level of academic competence. Firms claim they are educational publishing houses and will provide, on request, cus-10 m -m a d e essays on any given topic. WRITE TO FORM Bill Carmody, who runs the oldest and largest such firm. International Termpapers Inc., has built a file of more than 80,000 essays and has a staff of more than 400 freelance vmters who will \yrite to form for a fee of 50 cents to $1 a page. Mr. Carmody retails copies for $2.25 a page.

The former prime minister told the House of Commons on Wednesday that a Canada Council grant has been made for a program aimed at bringing into Canada foreign authors and scholars to teach Canadians to write. GOOD SALARY Mr. Diefenbaker said the foreign writers are being paid $1,000 a month under the program. The Progressive Conservative MP for Prince Albert, Sask., said of the 39 who have been designated to date 34 are from France. Others are from West Germany, Belgium and Italy. There are none from English - speaking comtries such as England or the United States. He asked the Commons whether secretary of state Gerald Pelletier would investig ate the matter. Said Mr. Diefenbaker: "I'd like to know the basis on which this huge amount of money has been voted to be spent, and whether consideration was given to our authors in Canada, and even to members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, who know how to write and don't have to have foreigners No chang in police es now act EDMONTON (CP) - The government does not anticipate changes in the controversial HARDWARE'S | Regular-Everyday-LOW LOW PRICES | HOT WHEELS UMlHi RACE SETS f 4? 1 In keeping with our policy of quality merchandise at everyday low prices, we would like to invite you to shop our store during this festive season . . .
