Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - TH1 llTHBRIDOl HERALD - Wednesday, January 13, 1971 Cullen's charges 'unfair, biased' By RIC SW1HART Herald Staff Writer Charges directed at the John Howard Society by an Alberta Supreme Court judge Tuesday were termed unfair and biased. Craig Reid, executive director of the John Howard Society of Alberta, said in an interview the blast by Mr. Justice A. J. Cullen was unfair and "I can't help but feel it's somewhat biased." Mr. Justice Cullen Monday criticized the John Howard Society after he was told the society was unable to find a job for a 16-year-old youth convicted of car theft and two break-ins. Mr. Reid said Mr. Just i c e Cullen's charge that the John Howard Society was unable to locate a job for the youth is entirely wrong. "The facts are not as Judge Cullen stated them. In actuality, John Howard found two jobs for the young fellow," said Mr. Reid. "In the first instance the young fellow insisted on going to the job alone and he got lost, When he returned, a volunteer got another job for him. "In the meantime, he went to live with his mother and we couldn't find him. When we did locate him, the job was gone." Mr. Reid said when John Howard went to Court Monday the youth was there. "At this time, we told the court we were hopeful of finding him another job. This would have meant finding three job opportunities. "Through circumstances beyond our control, the jobs weren't consummated. "Judge Cullen insists upon at- Independence group plans for chapter in Lethbridge The Committee for an Inde-, pendent Canada is "definitely planning" to hold an organizing meeting soon in Lethbridge, says Mel Hurtig, Edmonton bookseller - publisher and a CIC member. Founded about a year ago, the CIC calls for greater Canadian control of the economy and more Canadian content in the media and education. Its principles also ask for trade union autonomy and increased investment in under-developed areas of Canada. The group has chapters in Edmonton and Calgary, and Red Deer branch is expected to be formed shortly The first Edmonton public meeting, aside from the recent organizational meeting, will be held Saturday in the MacDon-ald Hotel-Mr. Hurtig told The Herald the CIC would be "very disappointed" if a Lethbridge chapter were not formed. He said he had written to two local residents, but so far had not found a contact prepared to organize a chapter. Although all political parties are represented in the present chapters, the CIC is non-partisan. National charter members include former prominent Liberals Walter Gordon and Judy LaMarsh, Senator Keith Davey, Pierre Berton and former Conservative cabinet minister Alvin Hamilton. The CIC plans to begin circulating late this month a national petition asking for names of those backing the principle of increased activity tor independence. Although the CIC's stress has been on positive action rather than anti-American nationalism, it is still not known exactly how the committee intends to gain increased independence. Mr. Hurtig said once committee members have completed appearances on national broadcasting shows, activity will increase in gaining signatures and forming chapters. Committee on constitution Twenth-one members of the 30-member parliamentary committee on the constitution who have been touring British Columbia centres hold their first of two Alberta forums tonight at 7:30 in the Kate Andrews Building on the University of Lethbridge campus. The forum, designed to allow formal briefs and informal discussion on reform of the constitution, will be held in the lecture theatre and will be open to all members of the public. Only one Alberta MP, Dearie Gundlock of Lethbridge, is a member of the committee. Notification of written or verbal briefs will be accepted at the door of the lecture theatre prior to the forum start. The committee completes its Alberta tour Thursday in Calgary. tacking the John Howard Society for something beyond our control, and I think it is incumbent on him to explain his attack." Mr. Reid said the courts are an awesome thing and in somo instances, they are not sensitive to Uie needs of the people. Mr. Justice Cullen also stated he had written a letter to a John Howard Society conference here last November in which he suggested they try to mobilize development companies such as oil and seismic firms in the province to make available a small number of jobs for young first offenders. "The John Howard Society of Alberta did not receive a letter from Judge Cullen," said Mr. Reid. "Again his facts were wrong. It wasn't a total John Howard conference. The conference was sponsored by the Solicitor General of Ottawa, the Attorney General of Edmonton, the Canadian Corrections Association, John Howard, the city of Lethbridge and the University of Lethbridge. "He (Mr. Justice Cullen) wrote the letter to the conference planning committee. The letter was directed to a col-league of Judge Cullen's, a member of his own profession, a member of the bench, a member of the attorney-general's office. "I can only conclude he should be attacking his own boss - Mr. Gerhart." Mr. Reid said, "What we are faced with here is a monumental breakdown of communications. "If this kid suffers because of this breakdown, we're all in error," he said. "I'm not interested in recrimination, only in co-operation. "I think the idea expressed by Judge Cullen about development companies offering jobs is an excellent one and I plan to meet with him personally to see what can be done to implement it." (See editorial on Page 4). Jasper beats city bid Jasper has been selected as the site for the 1971 Alberta Tourist Association annual convention to be held Feb. 19-21. Hugh Craig, a director of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta, told the directors at the monthly meeting in the Marquis Hotel Tuesday that Jasper won the bid, beating bids from Medicine Hat and Lethbridge. He said the Lethbridge bid was not pushed strongly due to active participation in the ATA cabinet presentation. Steve Kotch told the meeting the brief was presented by the marketing manager for Imperial OU and was well received by Premier Strom and cabinet. The brief was aimed at pre senting the financial difficulties experienced by the tourist industry, he said. "I feel the cabinet was honest when it indicated to the interested persons present that it would seriously consider all the points." The directors of TCASA, in order to boost memberships in the association, will offer steak dinner to the director who sells the most new memberships. This will be a month ly competition. The financial report, given by association manager Frank Smith, showed the association has an overdraft at the bank of $163. "This figure is only on paper," he said, "when in fact, we do have some money. The association is in the black up to the end of 1970." LCC transfer allegations U of L clarifies situation The University of Lethbridge1 has protested Lethbridge Community College allegations that universities have thrown roadblocks in the way of transfer arrangements for college students. The LCC criticisms came at a college board, of governors meeting Jan. 6, where college President Dr. C. D. Stewart said he had tried unsuccessfully for four years to come to a formal arrangement with the universities. He also said Education Minister Robert Clark has asked him for suggestions concerning legislation to cover transfer of students from one institution to another. University officials .said they wanted to clarify the situation from their viewpoint, adding that they too are Interested in a more flexible transfer policy. "We are surprised that the minister of education has made recent and direct reference to college - university transfer problems by a request (to Dr. Stewart) for advice on the problem," said U of L President Dr. Sam Smith. He said there is a newly-appointed Universities Co-ordinating Council Committee with considerable college representation, formed to investigate the problem of transfer from college to university, and to make recommendations concerning its findings. The major problem the LCC officials have offered is that students are unable to transfer courses from the college school of liberal education, school of business education and school of agriculture if they decide they want to attend university, The other five of Alberta's six community colleges (including the new one under construction in Edmonton) either do or are expected to offer university transfer programs with university courses closely modelled on University of Alberta programs. LCC has not been allowed to offer university transfer programs to .date because of department of education fears of duplication. The U of L grew out of the college's original two-year university transfer program. The college now is seeking formal university transfer courses in at least the subject areas of business administration and commerce, which the U of L does not offer, and would also like to offer other basic courses for the first two years of university. Dr. Smith said he was concerned about how this could be done without duplication and the associated financial difficulties. He also expressed concern at LCC desires to, arrange for transfer of its existing non-university courses: "Because some students have found that they are able to convince some American institutions of higher education to accept this work toward a degree may or may not be reason to consider similar students for transfer to Alberta universities." he said. This is one question the new committee will doubtless consider. "But surely any change In policy along these lines must be based on sound educational evidence, and not on personal opinion." He said the committee chairman. Dr. Gordon Mowat of the U of A, had approached the presidents of all Alberta colleges, requesting information concerning their ideas of new relationships between colleges and universities. Dr. Smith also said there is a formal and operational policy concerning transfer of students from college to university: If a college applies for financial support from the Alberta colleges commission to do work leading to university transfer, and if this is approved, a request is made to the universities co-ordinating council to accredit the college by affiliation with an existing Alberta university. On affiliation, every student passing an approved program at the college (usually quite similar to an existing university course of studies) is admissible to all Alberta universities. This would not include, however, mont of the programs LCC wants approval for. Home Recipe Plan Takes Off Ugly Fat It's simple how quickly one may lose pounds of unsightly fat right in your own home.
