Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta LEAVES PARTY Hugh Shea, Progressive Conserva- tive member oi the New- foundland legislature for St. John1! South has decided to lit M an independent PC. New guidelines issued for prisoner leaves OTTAWA (CP) A new set of guidelines has been issued for the granting of temporary ab- sence of prisoners. Prisoners serving life sen- tences, habitual criminals, dan- gerous sexual offenders and persons known by police to be connected with organized crime, will not be eligible for tempo rary leave until they have served three years. Even then they will only get leave with an escort. Those serving sentences fol lesser crimes will not be per- mitted temporary leave without escort until they have been in penitentiary for at least six months. The new guidelines, an- nounced Friday by Penitentiar- ies Commissioner Paul Faguy, follow the disappearance last month of Yves Geoffroy after he was given leave from St. Vln cent de Paul Penitentiary to get married. Geoffrey's disappear a n c caused a .storm of criticism. Mr. Faguy said discussion oi legal implications will take place with the provincial attar ney-general involved before prisoner is allowed to marry. Geoffroy married Carme Parent, with whom he was con nected when on trial in October ItflO, for strangling his wife. He was sentenced to life for non- capital murder. WIFE CAN'T TESTIFY He had launched an appeal for another trial and there was fear that if this was successful his marriage would eliminate an important prosecution wit Parent.

Sam Otto, chairman of Con servative ridings in B.C., sai< Thursday party leader Robert Stanfield had promised him be would look into suggestions that national party headquarters was putting pressure on Trevor Armstrong to withdraw in Mr Thompson's favor. Mr. Armstrong, a university of British Columbia student was selected by the constitu eney as its candidate. Mr. Thompson said Mr. Stan field was predicting an election in June and that he and his family were not moving from Bed Deer until July, "when school is out."

Hot dogs may be harmful CHICAGO (AP) Consumer Heporbi says In Ms February issue that nitrites used in hot- dog curing solutions, primarily to provide Hie familiar red color, may constitute a health hazard. Replying to the consumer af- fairs magazine's charges, Dr. W. J. Annan, director of scien- tific activities of the American Meat Institute, said Thursday the nitrites are helpful in inhib- iting bacterial growth. He added that strict government stand- ards keep the level of nitrites in frankfurters totally safe. Aunan also questioned the magazine's assertion that its re- searchers had found excessive bacteria in tested hot-dog sam. pies and its finding that 40 per cent of the samples had begun to spoil. Consumer Reports further charged that hot dogs were low in nutrition, with a low propor- tion of protein to filler and tats. Aunan countered: "It is true that many foods, including some meats, have a higher percen- tage of protein, but that does not mean that not dogs, with an average of 11 to 12 per cent protein, are not nutritious."

These might include sen ous illness or death In the fam fly. "Inmates who have been con victed as dangerous sexual of fenders will be granted no leave of absence until psychiatric con sultadon has been held and spe- cial clearance given." The first and second tempo- rary leaves of absence for those prisoners needing to serve three years before becoming eligible would require approval of the regional director of penitentiar jes. HecommeodatioM for leave would have to state reasons an be fully documented by com plete community investigation reports prepared either by e private social agency or the Na a'onal Parole Service. Mr. Faguy said: "The tempo- rary leave of absence program involves some risks but if in mates are to be given an oppor tunity to return to the common ity as responsible citizens then there must be opportunities provided to accept responsibil- ities."
