Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Thursday, July 5, 1973 At loss for reasons Prison suicides worry officials PRINCE ALBERT (CP) Penitentiary officials here are at a loss to pinpoint the reason for a rash of suicides during the last six months. Through the end of June, six prisoners hanged themselves leaving the Prince Albert Pen- itentiary with the most sui- cides among federal prisons. Two other suicides occurred in federal prisons during the same period, penitentiary offi- cials say. The eight suicides compare with two for all of Canada last year, one of them at the local penitentiary. "We Just don't have any idea why (the suicides are occur- acting Warden Jim O'Sullivan said.

Following the June 16 hang- ing of a 23-year-old prisoner in the prison hospital, authorities established a two-step effort to prevent suicides and determine their cause. ASKS PROBE Prison Warden T.

Meanwhile, prison authori- ties have tightened security to deal with the problem.

"There is now a man watch- ing 24 hours.a day where be- fore there were times when an inmate in a depressed condi- tion might have been left alone." Prison staff are being sent to the mental hospital at North Battleford, Sask., to study physical security methods of suicide prevention and to learn how to recognize suicide symp- toms. "This thing has caused everyone to be concerned, staff and inmates. We're all asking Mr. O'Sullivan said. EATON'S RECORD SPECTACULAR WEA WEA WEA J.

Senator Davey tagged for Grit rebuilding job By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Senator Keith Davey has been tagged as the man required to rebuild the Liberal party's election organ- ization, take over as national campaign chairman and give it the necessary spark and drive. His job will be to organize the Liberal party in readiness for thj next general election in all provinces outside of Quebec. Transport Minister Jan Marchand will again have the job of organizing Quebec for the upcoming campaign. The announcement of Senator Davey's appointment as cam- paign chairman is expected to be made shortly. It has to be made soon so ha can get tlB various provincial chairman named and on the job by Sep- tember i. There is a reluctance on the part of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and the party to have an announcement made too soon because it might bigger early election speculatioa. At this writing there appears to be no firm Liberal plans for an early election. Most Liberals believe there will be no election until the spring of 1974, unless the Lib- eral minority government stum- bles into an election through a surprise defeat in the house of commons. Meantime pending the official announcement of his appoint- ment as national campaign chairman Senator Davey will only admit to doing some or- ganizational work for the prime minister. National Director of the Lib- eral party Blair Williams con- firmed Tuesday that Senator Davey has bean working closely with him in a consultative ca- pacity. He said the senator be- cause of his long and valuable experience in organizing for na- tional elections has been asked to look at specific problems confronting the Liberal party. These include: (1) Public re- lations and how the party can improve its public relations at this point in time and in prepa- ration for the coming cam- paign. (2) A constituency analysis. (3) Surveys, that is diffrent polls that need to te taken to determine the present >cpularity of the party and dif- ferent issuss. Senator R. J. Stanbury is president of the National Lib- eral Federation. There will be a new party president to be elected in Ottawa hi September at the national meeting. The name of Senator Gil Molgat has bean mentioned as a possible successor to Senator Stanbury. A former Liberal leader in Manitoba and a former member of the Manitoba legislature Sen- ator Molgat was summoned to the senate in 1970. Others mentioned as possible candidates for the president's post include Bernard Des- cbenes, a Montreal lawyer, now vice president of the federation, and Joa Cruden of Toronto. Mr.eruden is Liberal president in Ontario. Since the outcome of the fed- eral election last October, a dis- aster as far as the Liberal party was concerned, there has been a big change at the party's headquarters. Two young west- ern Canadians are now in key positions helping rebuild party and prepare it for the nest ballot battle. They are Blair Williams, 34- year-old national director and Robert Foulkes, 24-year-old di- rector of organization. Bsth men come from Alberta where tbs Liberals failed to win a single seat in the last election. They hope to rebuild the parly in th west. The party has been looking for a man to take charge as na- tional campaign chairman for the election. It had two men in mind, both experienced. John Nicbol, who resigned from the senate this spring and who served as president of the Lib- eral Federation during the lat- ter days of the late prime min- ister L. B. Pearson's regime and during Prime Minister Trudeau's first day's in office. Senator Davey was national organizer of the LJoaral part; from 1961 to 1966. He served in that post during the tumultuous political years when Mr. Pear- son was seeking to defsat tie then prime minister John Die- fenbaker. Finally with Senator Davey as organizer Mr. Psarson man- aged to form a minority govern- ment in 1963. He played a ma- jor role in the Liberal .party's national election campaigns in and 1965. He has been active with the party since tie 1950's and helped make Mr. Pearson leader. Since entering the senate be has turned his energies to other outlets such'as the senate in-' quiry in the mass media. How- ever he has never lost his love for politics and will bring a wealth of experience to the job of campaign chairman.. Fore fashion First chairman elected by CSE i CALGARY (CP) The elec- tion of W. R. Fulton of Mid- land-Osier Securities Ltd. as the first chairman of tie newly formed board of gov- ernors of the Calgary Stock Exchange was announced today. Also announced were the elections of G. H. Pcwis of Richardson Securities of Can- ada as vice chairman, and A. S. Hawkins of Bongard, Leslie and Co. Ltd. as secre- tary treasurer. The exchange had been gov- erned by a committee of man- agement since its inception hi 1913.
