Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHDRIDGE HERALD Wadntiday, July 21, 1971 Aim at 'humanizing whole prison system' OTTAWA 1CP) Wardens of 32 federal prisons have been di- rected to allow prisoners to elect committees "to improve co operation with manage- ment." The committees of prisoners, elected by secret ballot, will have neither decision-making authority nor administrative power, but are expected to bring about change within the institutions said the announce- ment Tuesday by Solicitor-Gen- eral Jean-Picrrs Goyer. Their primary purpose will be lo "open up better communica- tions between staff and in- mates." They will also make sugges- tions on treatment and training programs, acting as an escape value for the tensions that build up in penitentiaries. Spokesmen here say a raft of directives is going out from Penitentiaries Commissioner Paul Faguy aimed at "humaniz- ing the whole system." They in- volve everything from rules on correspondence to visiting privi- leges. "These are the things they complain an official says of the federal prison- ers, whose frustrations have been vented in several institu- tions in recent months. FEARED ELECTRONIC EYE The most notable disturbance occurred in April at Kingston penitentiary, where guards were held hostage while a com- mittee of prisoners carried grievances outside. One factor said to have led to the Kingston riot was fear among prisoners of the kind of life they would lead when trans- ferred to JEllhaven, a new max- imum security prison 18 miles away. Rumors of round-the- clock surveillance of electronic eyes, which don't exist at Mill- haven, were mentioned. Prison disturbances tradition- ally have been associated with Agnew kept-in-the-dark report is shot down WASHINGTON (Reuter) The While House shot down Tuesday a report that Vice- Citizen protests Irusl fund tax by government LONDON.

President Spiro T. Agnew was caught unawares by President Nixon's announcement that he will visit Communist China. White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, asked about the report, said Agnew "is fa- miliar with the foreign policy of the United and added that "the announcement came as no surprise to the vice-presi- dent." Agnew, who is at present vis- iting Spain on a 10-country world tour for Nb.on. has de- clined comment on the forth- coming presidential visit to Pe- king. Ziegler's remarks appeared to observers to indicate that while (lie vice-president knew such a trip was in the offing, he was perhaps not aware when it was to be announced. Observers speculated that this could have been because he was abroad at the time White House adviser Henry A. Kissinger re- turned from Peking with the in- vitation from Chinese Premier Chou En-lai lo Nixon. PHILIP'S THEME LONDON (Reuter) Prince Philip, a frequent critic of Brit- ish industry, warned Monday that Britain is losing out com- mercially to other countries.

"We recognize that commit- tees of prisoners elected by the inmate population can provide a vital communications link be- tween the Inmate body and the prison Mr. Goyer said in a news release. Under Mr. Faguy's directive, effedvie Aug. I, the committees would work with the administra- tion on treatment and training programs, recreation, p r i v i- leges, and community service projects. They would be elected twice a year, the turnover in prison population is high because of re- leases and admissions. Meetings would be once a month, with recommendations and sugges- tions being forwarded to the wardens- The inmate representative would be responsible for inform- ing the group he cell block, for pro- ceedings. And minutes would be tacked on notice boards. Recently the penitentiaries service announced that leisure clothes will be provided for pris- oners and work clothes will be of belter material, with the numbers on the Inside rather than the outside. After the matter was raised in Parliament, Mr. Goyer ordered lliat letters to himself or mem- bers of Parliament from prison- ers no longer be censored by prison officials. Both Mr. Goyer, who became solicitor-general last December, and Mr. Faguy, penitentiaries commissioner since last Sep- tember, have been pushing the program lo "humanize" Ihe prisons, where some rules pre- date Confederation and a sti- fling military atmosphere can still be found.

Matthiew had been con- victed by a provincial court judge in May at 100 Mile House on a charge that he "did unlawfully and wilfully kill cattle, to wit, a and sentenced to two years less a day. Matthiew, 24, was driving into town one day when he en- countered a herd of cattle on the road. One wouldn't get out of his way so he got out and shot it. Within 48 hours he had been arrested, convicted and sen- tenced. Commenting on the severity of. the sentence, Mr. Justice Angelo Branca said: "Why, they give two years sometimes when a murder charge is reduced to man- slaughter. Did the judge con- sider killing a cow as serious as "Apparently they do up in the said lawyer Patrick Dohm, conducting Matthiew's appeal. The lawyer said Judge S. H. Smele did not order a pre-sen- lence report, which would have shown Matthiew is nor- mally a sleady, reliable fel- low, but had downed 12 bottles of beer that day.
