Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta IS ~ THE LETHBRIRGE HERALD - Saturday, February 17, 1973 By DAN SLOVITT Canadian Press Staff Writer Someone always suffers from a theft. If it's equipment stolen from a school, the taxpayers must pay for it and the students have to do without until it can be replaced. When thieves take a wallet or an article from a student's locker, that student bears the costs.. And when this happens and a particular school or college is continually theft-ridden and security measures are tightened, all persons in the school feel the pinch. Theft in schools is a part of life almost every day, a Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press indicates. E AGENCIES LTD.

Paul Fiander, principal of Halifax West high school in Halifax, is one person feeling the effects of thievery. While talking about thefts at his school-there has been "a desperate increase" during the last year or two-he looked without success for some stamps. "I have to hide things and I can't remember where I put them." But that is not the extent of his problems. During one break at the school thieves took expensive welding equipment. As a result rooms containing expensive equipment now have locks requiring as many as three keys. "It's even difficult for me to get around," he said. The situation has reached the point where nothing of value can be left in schools overnight and officials indicate problems controlling unauthorized persons entering the schools during regular hours. FIND NEGLIGENCE Audio-visual equipment is the biggest target for thieves, although parking lots and automobile accessories have lured bandits to the campuses. School officials blame both greed and support of a drug habit as the reasons for theft from schools and add that negligence in leaving things out in the open doesn't help. Dealing with apprehended thieves varies from bringing parents to the school for a .chat to taking the thief to police authorities. The theft situation in schools varies across the country: NEWFOUNDLAND . Thefts are prevalent at Memorial University in St. 'John's, although a reorganization of the university's security force has he1" 3d in curtailing some. Polic- said most items stolen are those easy to dispose of for money and the thefts looked like ordinary burglaries. P.E.I. Thefts are not significant at Colonel Grey high school in Charlottetown although principal Wendell Horton said there are "one or two unfortuniate cases where someone loses a fair amount of money," ngratolations Harry, you finished your Grade 12 with B credits!

NOVA SCOTIA After hour break-ins in schools in greater Halifax will cost more than $30,000 this year, said Arthur Conrad, director of education services for the school. St. Mary's University loses about 200 books a year, valued at some $4,000, while general thefts at Dal-housie University have reached to some $8,000. NEW BRUNSWICK Thieves have taken two $200 chairs, a coffee table, wall ashtrays, doormats, fire extinguishers and drapes this year from the University of New Brunswick i n Fredericton. Thefts are on the rise at the university and extra security patrols have been put in force. Chief security officer C. F. Williamson blames the thefts equally on students and off-campus thieves. The district school board in Saint John is attempting to cut down on thefts by leaving cleaning personnel and in some cases security men in school buildings overnight and portions of weekends. QUEBEC Vandalism and theft cost the Catholic school commission of Montreal $782,000 for the last school year. The commission blamed thefts on dropouts, the majority playing no sports, with no hobbies and with no way to expend their energy constructively. The Quebec City school commission has placed extra security guards and additional lights in places prone to theft. ONTARIO Metropolitan Toronto police report 271 break-ins at area schools in 1972 and of the $593,514 spent as a result of break-ins, most of it went to repair damage caused. It cost $2-2,665 to replace goods diaD> aged beyond repair. There were 48 break-ins reports in t plan good for investors By MIKE WILLIAMS TORONTO (CP) - To many, retirement may seem a long way off, but experts agree it is never too early to begin your financial planning. Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP), introduced by the federal government in 1957, were designed with incentives to encourage people to save for their retirement. Participants may put up to $4,000 of their earned income every year into an RRSP, and claim the full amount as a deduction for income tax purposes. There are also other tax advantages according to the type of plan chosen. Basically, then, an RRSP is a long-term investment designed to defer taxes until the investor retires and his rate of income tax normally is lower. Babson's Reports says in an investment letter that "the tax deferral itself is worth a great deal as these funds accumulate interest or dividends." A person may build an RRSP through several channels. It may be compiled in government bonds, shares of a company trading on a Canadian stock exchange or cash, if it is in, a bank, trust company or savings account. MUST BE REGISTERED The basic requirement of an RRSP is that it be registered with the department of revenue. Canadian Business Service says "no eligible taxpayer should miss this opportunity to defer and reduce his taxes." "The only cloud we can see on the horizon is the possibility of a future administration in Ottawa changing government policy on the flexibility and taxation of RRSPs." Babson's, however, warns that "while RRSPs are generally an excellent long-term savings vehicle for most individuals, they are not suitable for everyone." Investors with low tax rates would benefit little from the tax concessions and find the RRSPs "much less attractive." Also, funds withdrawn from the plan must be taxed as income for that year. Both firms point out that in order to qualify for a 1972 tax reduction, plans must be registered by the end of February. ame for school th schools in the Sudbury area with property loss amounting to some $24,000. The cost dropped considerably from the $60,000 necessary the previous year. MANITOBA Police at Winnipeg say thefts in schools has not been, a problem in recent years with a fairly large number of the thieves caught. The school board budgets $7,000 a year for thefts. SASKATCHEWAN Officials in public and separate school systems and the Regina campus of University of Saskatchewan report that thefts are not much of a problem. A university spokesman said most are "petty thefts" in which equipment may be left unguarded for a couple of days. ALBERTA Principals of four Edmonton high schools indicate some theft occurs in the schools,. but don't consider it a serious matter. R. T. Campbell, principal of Austin O'Brien high school, said he believes success at curbing thefts comes from involvement of the student council in school problems and activities. "There's nothing like the student grapevine," he sadd. BRITISH COLUMBIA Thefts at Simon Fraser Uni- versity at Burnaby are "not too bad now. It's tolerable," said Fred Hope, director of traffic and security. He said prosecution of offenders and security measures are responsible for cutting down the number of thefts.
