Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 40 THI UTHMIDGI HHAID Wednliday, January 11, 1772 Neiv commissioner at helm Changes in Scotland Yard predicted By CY FOX LONDON (CP) There'll be some changes made in Scotland Yard April 1. That's the prediction follow- ing the appointment of 54- year-old Robert Mark as com- missioner of the London police department with a force of officers. Mark gives every indication of being a new-style advocate of the idea that mounting viol- ence requires tougher enforce- ment of the law. Chief of police in Leicester from 1957 to 1967, he will take over the commissioner's job in London from retiring com- missioner Sir John Waldron in April as a comparative outsid- though he's been deputy commissioner at Scot- land Yard since 1967. Mark emerges as London's lop policeman at a time when public confidence in at least one of Uie country's law en- forcement departments i s being sorely tasted. In Leeds, two policemen were recently sent to prison for assaulting a Negro va- grant while other members of the same force have been ram- Bonehead trophy for Nixon DALLAS (AP) The Dal- las Bonehead Club is present- ing its annual "Bonehead ot the Year" trophj to President Nixon after he slipped coach Don Shula of Miami Dolphins a play that Nixon thinks will work against Dallas Cowboys Sunday in the Super Bowl. The trophy, said a spokes- man Monday, "is presented each year to the person or institution that has endeared themselves to the sports- minded public by their desire to participate and lose." Last year's winner was Tom Dempsey, then with New Orleans Saints, for a game- winning, record field goal that took New Orleans out of the lost its first pick in the National Football League pro draft. The club performs such civic acts as closing new pressways before they are opened and hunting lost leases for stores t h at advertise "We've lost our lease and must move." RECOMMENDED PASS The play Nixon recom- mended is a down-and-in pass, Bob Griese-to-Paul Warfield. The Bonehead Club was or- ganized April Fool's Day 1919 and is composed of business, professional and civic leaders, all of whom are club vice- presidents. The club telegraphed Ntai: "Without considering the options, you let your heart rule your better judgment and remembering Custer, picked the Redskins to whip the Cow- boys. "Dallas won over Washing- ton in a crucial game this sea- son. Still undaunted, you set out to become a coach for the Miami Dolphins." The trophy, wliich rests per- manently with the Boneheads, is described as a beautiful walnut and silver creation, topped by a large silver nut. Pork plant is planned TABER (HNS) A major agro industrial complex, now in the planning stages for southern Alberta, will process asd pack pork products for an export market. To acquaint present and po- tential producers of hogs and teed grains with general infor- mation about the industry, and to propose forward contracting for the supply of hogs and feed grains, officials of the firm have called a public meeting at the Taber Community Cen- tre auditorium for'2 p.m. Fri- day, January 21. Interested people across the southern end of the province are invited to attend in the in- terests of expanded agricultur- al production. victed on a variety of sepa- rate charges. Anything Mark does to im- prove the standards of police work in Uie capital will bo all the more likely to act as a model for police forces throughout areas of the coun- try outside London. The commissioner-elect at Scotland Yard, the name tra- ditionally given- to the head- quarters of London's police department, is reported to favor having a strong central circle of detectives whose job would be to watch for any corruption among their fellow officers. But as the first men to rise from constable to commis- sioner of the metropolitan po- lice force, Mark also shapes up as a defender of his men's interests. High police morale and solid public confidence in the man on the beat are condi- tions he considers essential to any effective campaign against crime. For this purpose, however, there must be a reversal of what Mark terms the trends in criminal law which favor accused persons as opposed to the exigencies of justice. AGAINST HANGING For this reason and not for the usual liberal reasons, the commissioner-elect favored the abolition of capital punish- ment in Britain last year. The existence of hanging, along with flogging and other old-time forms of punishment, prompted the adoption of ex- tra-strong safeguards de- signed to rule out the possible conviction and punishment of innocent persons. Specifically, he favors aboli- tion of the judge's rule which provides for the cautioning of suspects against making statements if they don't want to. ff Mark had his way, ac- cused persons also would be liable to cross-examination In the witness box and prosecu- tfan counsel would be allowed to comment to juries on any fear the accused might show in the face of such a step. Mark maintains that in the present age "the robber or a burglar stands at least a two- out-of-three chance of escap- ing arrest and, if caught, a four-out-of-10 chance of ac- quittal." The wrong-doer "is faced with a penal system infi- nitely more concerned with his well-being than hitherto." CRIMINAL GETS BREAK In view of such considera- tions, "is it right that he should still be able to take advantage of procedural safe- guards justified no longer by logic but by emotions appro- priate only to a more barba- rous With Mark in command, Scotland Yard is likely to see changes which reflect the fu- ture commissioner's views on how a police force should be organized for maximum effi- ciency. For instance, observers see the prospect of a division of the force into, on the one hand, a uniformed group given the job of maintaining public order and, on the other, a highly-educated plainclothes element whose sole job it would be to track down the increasingly sophisticated criminals now operating in the London area. Traffic control might end up as the job of a totally sepa- rate group, boasting rigorous standards of recruitment and working without the aid of the currently widespread parking, meters. CALLED BANDITS Curbside bandits is Mark's term for the meters. And as police chief in Leicester he chose to use specially dele- gated "traffic wardens" and a system of fixed penalties in tackling that city's car prob- lems. On Uie whole subject of the apparent conflict between considerations of humanity and worries over checking the rising rate of violent crime, Mark has expressed a guarded optimism. "There are signs of change most welcome for those who wish to see the gradually in- creasing humanity of the criminal law r.iMched by in- creasing he says. IS OUR BUSINESS Noboby knows our business better than we do! LEN HAUSER wildlife promoters Birds port of truck terminal Strictly for the birds CALGARY (CP) A wild- life sanctuary as part of a truck terminal? Strictly for the birds. Hat's what architects and landscapes thought when Len Hauser, president of Canadian Freightways Lid., first made Uie proposal. "The construction crew shoik their heads at he said, "but now they sneak over on their coffee breaks to look at the birds." The idea caught on quickly with Hie animals. Sparrows by the hundreds, gophers, rabbits and some partridge and pheasant took up residence In the embryo sanctuary, now consisting of several oil drum feeders. A barren, five-acre hillside In the eastern section of the Lack of service alleged at new pollution centre SPARWOOD (HNS) Dur- ing a discussion on the pollu- tion control centre, public foreman A. Cimmolini slated "nothing has been run- ning right." Underwood and MeLeJlan, engineers for the District of Sparwood, had informed Cun- ningham and Shannon, contrac- Mosier stolen COLMAR, France (AP) Martin Schoengauer's 15th-cen- tury masterpiece, The Madonna of the Rose Arbor, was stolen Monday "ight from ttie church of St. Martin. Officials said they were unable to estimate the value of the painting. The paint- ing is 314 by 7 feet, and since Schoengauer completed it in 1473 it had hung above of the altars in the Gothic churc.- tors for the plant, that rectifi- cations needed to be made. Several weeks have passed with little being done regard- ing the matter. Day-care centre plan approved RED DEER (CP) -City council yesterday approved the establishment of a sub- sidized day-care centre. The proposal must still be approved by the provincial government, which would be responsible for 80 per cemt of the operating cost. The centre, which would ac- commodate 30 children, would operate from June 1 to Dec. 31 A a cost of about city prompted the move. It's part of the land where Mr. Hauser is pluming a fl .IB- million truck terminal. The former truck driver, 55, said he worries about the so- called bad image of the truck- Ing industry and wants to do something about it. He hopes the bird sanctuary will help solve the problem. BEGAN THINKING "I've been a hunter and a fisherman all my life, ami also a hs said. "I looked at this place for a long lime and decided I wanted to turn it into some- thing. You keep reading about problems of ecology and Out animals and birds are disap- pearing and it starts you thinking. "Civilization has got to start I taking care of Ihe environ- ment. If industry today looks ahead it will realize that it must contribute something to the society it finds itself in to make itself more acceptable to that society." The hillside has been hy- dra-seeded with various types of wheat, fes- cue and millet. Tha landscaping' for the sanctuary will be completed this spring with planting of trees and bushes. Construc- tion for the terminal is also scheduled to be completed in the spring. Mr. Hauser said he hopes his bird sanctuary idea will set a trend for other busi- nesses and industries to beau- tify the city by spending money on developing barren land. Architect Don Stevens, whose firm is handling the terminal project, said he was surprised but pleased by the depth of Mr. Hauscr's interest in developing the hillside. "Apparently Itere were a couple of families of pheas- ants living on the hillside (fat he was concerned atcut and he kept telling us not to upset his pheasants with the ter- minal project. Then it just got bigger and bigger." Mr. Stevens said the presi- dent is aware of the public relations value of the bird sanctuary project to hU com- pany, adding, however, that Mr. Mauser's main motivation is a sincere concern for wild- life and ecology. Youths face charges TABER (HNS) On the morning at Jin. 4, 1372 a break, enter and theft was reported from St. Mary's High School in Taber. Vending machines and offices were entered by force, and approximately in cash was stolen in addition to some vandalism.
