Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, JUM I. 1971 THI UTMMtDOC HBtAlO 21 First offenders loise their farm (CP) A thera- peutif farm community for young first offenders has sus- pended operations follow- ing community antagonism and problems with staff and mon- The Alternatives to Detention and Pfejfole or Probation Farm Project began last fall on a this community, about 33 niijes northeast of Edmon- ton. It fecluded six persons tween the ages of 17 and 21 who were referred by courts or probation officers after being involved in; drug related of- fences.' The'project, funded fay the federal non-medical use of drugs program, was designed to help them with behavioral difficulties and emotional prob- lems teaching them respon- sibility. The major problem was farm with qualified personnel, probation officer Er- nie Stokes, who was on the pro- jects community board, said in an interview. An'ex-convict and his wife di- rected the project and a priest counselled on the farm. The distance from urban areas to the farm proved in- convenient for the psychiatrists and other professionals who came in periodically to provide therapeutic treatment, Mr. Stokes said. The Lamont farm project be- came an issue after neighbor- ing residents said they had not been approached about the pro- ject before it started. "They were concerned that the farm was unattended and thought we were putting a hip- pie haven or drug culture into their Mr. Stokes said. Mr. Stokes said rent for the farm was unreasonable and the owner demanded rent for equipment and wanted part of the crop which the residents planned to grow. What the farm needed, Mr. Stokes said, were "Mom and Dad" figures who would be re- sponsible for the young people and help create a family atmo- sphere. The board ran an ad for such a couple without success. A similar project is planned at an old commune site at Ono- way, about 50 miles northwest of Edmonton, and Mr. Stokes said federal government ap- proval is expected. Facilities and professionals from the Sturgeon River Sf-hool of Learn- ing will be used if the project is approved. TV clean-up funds sought EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Federation of Home and School Associations has asked for provincial govern- ment support in cleaning up television and an end to com- mercials aimed at youngsters. But the president of the fed- eration, Edith Hnytfca, points out that the television portion of the annual brief to the cab- inet is not a major concern. The federation, she says, is facing a financial crises and operates on a budget of annually, of which comes from a grant from the govern- ment. The remainder is con- tributed by Home and School locals throughout the province. Ideally, the federation should have a budget of a year if it is to voice parents' concerns effectively in educa- tion, she said. In its 30-page submission to the provincial cabinet, the fed- eration called for much less vi- olence on television, and more programs portraying values which would support and strengthen family ties. They also want programs with humor, but not vulgarity, and more educational television on crafts, hobbies and creative arts. "While we realize that tele- vision programming is not with- in the jurisdiction of this prov- ince, we did want to make you aware of our members' con- the brief says. Their feelings on television programming will be sent to television stations and taken to the national Home and School convention as a resolution from the Alberta group, Mrs. Hnytka said. "Our members are concerned about the type and amount of advertising directed to children when it is primarily the par- ents who are the purchasers. Such advertising creates de- sires, imagined needs and un- realistic expectation in the minds of impressionable young- the brief says. Through the national federa- tion, an appeal to the Canadian Radio Television Commission will be made for an end to this type of advertising. The brief also recommends to the government that a mini- mum of one per cent of the to- tal education budget be ear- marked for educational re- search and that a body named the Alberta Educational Re- search and Evaluation Institute be established. A communication institute should also be set up to keep local boards, schools, teachers and the public informed of new programs, it says. Wet weather delays planting CHICAGO (AP) Wet weather in the Midwest has de- layed the planting of spring crops, but farmers and federal agriculture officials are at odds over whether the setbacks will mean higher prices for the con- sumer. "If there is a shortage of feed supplies as a result of the wet spring, then there are definitely going to be higher said Joseph Wankerl, a dairy farmer from Plain, Wis. But Francis A. Kutish of the department of agriculture said he stood by earlier, more opti- mistic predictions from his boss, Don Paarlberg, director of economics. Paarlberg said May 20 he was confident the farmers could catch up with their spring plan- ting and said the flooding would have little impact on food prices. He also said that much of the acreage1 inundated by Mississippi River flooding was cotton land and .predicted farm- ers would switch to soybeans which can be planted later in the year and provide feed for livestock. The Memorial Day weekend, however, brought tornadoes and torrential rains. More rain fell last weekend..' The agriculture department said that by June 3, about 84 per cent of the corn crop in the Corn Belt was planted, com- pared to 90 per cent at the same time last year. "Farmers have pretty well caught up in their corn Kutish said, "although they're a little behind a year ago." Soybean planting was 43 per cent complete June 3, compared to 72 per cent last year. Soy- take about 90 days to mature compared to 120 days for be planted until the middle of June, al- though some farmers claim the yield decreases if the crop is planted after June 10. One prob- lem with planting soybeans on areas prepared for cotton was that some of the land already i had been treated with herbi- cides, needed for cotton, but harmful to soybeans. A report prepared recently by a commodities firm and circu- lated at the Chicago Board of Trade said that the govern- ment's goal of more than six million bushels of corn this year may not be reached because much farm land is wet and has not been planted. Labor shortage in Montana HELENA. Mont. (AP) The Montana employment security division reports construction is near record levels in most major cities of the state. Division administrator Fred Barrett said yesterday that worker shortages remain in construction, mining, agricul- ture and food service jobs. He said unemployment claims to the state dipped below the mark last week and are 12 per cent below the same week in 1972. EATO N'S SATURDAY Shop Early For Limited Quantities. Personal Shopping Only!
