Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Jg _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, July 20, 1971 HE J2 Victoria project success Students hired as police TRANQUIL? This appearingly peaceful and shady because it is located in the Youth-a-rama building, one arcades in Whoop-Up Days. But one car just sit and wa resting spot is very deceiving of the busiest and noisiest itch "the world go by." VICTORIA (CP) Eliza- beth S til well's elfin face blushed when she was asked vhat her friends thought about her becoming a tempo- rary policewoman. "They called me a piglet, said the 22-year-old brunette as her three fellow-recruits- Charles Groos, 24, William Norris. 23, and Myran Wal- lace, with laugh- ter. The four first-year law sm- dents at the University of British Columbia, all from Victoria, were relaxing after a hectic week's initiation into the job of becoming a police officer. They are the second group of student-constables to be employed on regular summer- time police duties by the Vic- toria city police force- When the program was tried on an experimental basis last year it proved, said Po- lice Chief John Gregory, "an outstanding success" and at- tracted keen interest across Canada, both from police forces and law faculties at universities. Despite the inquiries and appreciative comments, how- ever, Chief Gregory says he knows of only one other force in the country that has yet adopted a similar scheme. That is in the neighboring mu- nicipality of Saanich, which has hired three UBC law stu- dents this summer. "There's absolutely nothing wrong with adop'.ing a good said Saanich Mayor Hugh Curtis when he an- nounced the plan last March. Ann Landers Jazz group plays "oldies at Waterton Chief Gregory is surprised more forces don't appear to share this view, for he readily admits he got the idea hi the first place from reading about a trial program run by police in Virginia Beach, Va. Besides the obvious benefits of providing young people with vacation jobs and helping to fill th'e staff gaps resulting from summer holidays, there are other less tangible, more long-term advantages. Mr. Gregory says among the students working for him will be not only future law- yers but MPs, judges and MLAs. And these lawmakers will have had that invaluable experi- inside knowledge of policemen's problems and a chance to see the law in ac- tion through the eyes of those who have to enforce it day in, day out. The program may also make for better communica- tion and understanding be- tween police and young peo- ple, he believes. For instance, he was partic- ularly impressed last year with the young officers' abil- ity to "get through" to the hippies and transients who are a familiar sight in down- town Victoria's squares and parks. "A lot of our university youth are travelling around the country these days and to meet one of their own kind in uniform may help to bridge that gap which seems to he said. Like their predecessors, the 1971 squad are expected to tackle everything from prow car duty to beat patrol and of fice routine during their May to-September stint. They wil probably make an arrest 01 two, and give evidence in court. But though they will receiv training in the use of fire arms, Chief Gregory hasn" By MARILYN ANDERSON" DEAR ANN LANDERS: I work ill a building which has newspapers for sale on the first floor. There is no attendant. The people are on their honor. And two mornings a week I get ahold o a paper that has bread crumbs, coffee rings or jelly on it. It seems there are several people who do not wish to buy a paper- they only want to borrow it Ho read Ann Landers, of they help themselves, spill a little breakfast on it as they read, and return it when they have finished. It burns me up when I get a soiled paper-especially since I pay for mine. What do you Abe DEAK ABE- Report the problem to the carrier who de- livers the papers and he'll do what he can to discourage these cheapskates. Meantime, try taking ycur paper from the bottom of the pile. The second-hand copies are probably on top. Dear Ann Landers: This is the second marriage for both of us. Joe had two children by his first wife and now he and I have two This has been no dream marriage no matter how you look at it. But I was old enough to know better so I won't complain. I'm writing about a habit of his that drives me up the wall Joe still calls me by his first wife's name. For a long time I overlooked it, but after 18 years I think I have a right to expect him to know who I am. (My nante is in no way similar to hers.) In my opinion a man has to be a halfwit to make the same mistake for 18 years. I have given serious consideration to bashing his teeth in. It might cure him. What is your frank opinion? Ticked Off In Michigan Dear Ticked: My frank opinion is that if you bash his teeth in he might rearrange your bridgework. May I suggest a more subtle approach? Whenever Joe calls you by his first wife's name, respond by saying, "Yes, Harold (your ex-husband's name.) This will call attrition to his error in a manner that provides him with an incentive to get your name straight the next time. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

And a one, and a two and audiences r.t the Kootcnai Lodge in "beautiful downtown Waterton" were off on one of the wackiest trips the tourists had yet. Appearing nightly last week were the Heartaches Razz Band, a Vancouver-based kooky trio. Their specialty is the '20s era backed up by whistles, hells, and a set of amplifiers that send out good vibrations. In the eight short months the group has been together they've ably bridged the generation gap with vaudeville in living sound. John Owen on the keyboard (in formal tails yet) keeps two boards, foot pedal, microphone and himself alive in corny, funny-funny roi'lines. Drummer Brian Tworden, who vaguely resembles the Lion in the Wizard of Oz, is on the receiving end of both pie and a pail water which he re- ceives in strong silence during a sustained drum roll to cut him off. The third member of the group is Golden Throat (the voice that has thrilled millions) Barry Healey, who in parted hair, clipped mustache, and the postures of an old Mack Sen- nett movie, delivers the songs Oi yesteryear for today's gener- ation. You start looking for Ramon Navarro. During one of the intermis- sions when members of the group visit with patrons, Barry said they started the group primarily for young people, many of whom had never heard songs such as Ida, Shine on Harvest Moon, Goof'js. rnd Your Lips Tell Me No No, and other Rudy Vallee goodies. He said the group enjoys ecided whether they will be ssued with guns. They are paid a month, he normal starting salary for constable. The written reports submit- ed by last year's outgoing tudent-police spoke elo- auently of the personal experi- ence and satisfaction they had derived from their summer ob. One student wrote that po- ke now had his "fullest un- derstanding and sympathy" in their job of giving fair, accur- ate court evidence. "My experience made it very clear to me how much an officer has at stake when he must make a split-second decision as to what course of action he is to take." And he added, somewhat ruefully: "This job may for- ever have destroyed my effec- tiveness in cold-bloodedly ex- amining police witnesses." Conversely, Chief Gregory noted that the way the stu- dents gave then- evidence in dicated their legal training "and even served as an exam- ple to the more senior person nel-" ]ivil servant etires as lawyer OTTAWA (CP) Retirement fter 30 years in the federal ublie service may be just the eginning of a new career- for xuberant Marjorie Dunsworth.

At that early stage in her car- eer she handled mostly wills and estates, winning two cases in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. Then she went to Moncton, N.B., to work in the regional legal office of the unemploy- m e n t insurance commission. During her 15 years there, she was fascinated by the legal work involving prosecutions under the Unemployment Insur- THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes ance Act for offences such as alse statements. When she joined the public works department 15 years ago, she first worked in the legal services division dealing with contracts, property and expro- priations. Increasingly her work in- volved contracts and tenders and at times she presided over tender openings, suspense-filled gatherings of contractors wait- ing to hear who had submitted the lowest tender for projects sometimes worth millions of dollars. "It was really quite exciting, she recalled in an interview in her office shortly before leav- ing. Sometimes tenders would arrive in a flurry only minutes before the deadline. Although she reached the hub of department work and was elected a director of the member public service recrea- tion association, she says frankly that she doesn't think a voman gets as far as a man in he public service. Now Miss Dunsworth plans to make Shediac, N.B-, her home )ase. "I hope to be able to do some social work and I feel as if I vill be doing some kind of law store-front lawyer ituff. Legal aid anyway." Always interested in politics, she also wants to promote Mari- ;ime union which she thinks would give the Maritimes a stronger, more influential voice in Ottawa.
