Thurs. to Closed Saturdays Prosecutors do not allow plea dealing Plea bargaining is not part of court procedures in Leth- bridge, the attorney-general's agent in the city said Tues- day. "If there Is evidence for charge A, we will never go to charge B just to get a guilty Vaughan Hartigan said in a Herald interview. Plea bargaining is a pro- cess where a Crown prosecu- tor, faced with a not guilty plea, will, after negotiations with a defense attorney, drop the more serious charge in order to get a guilty plea on the lesser charge. It has been justified be- couse it eases the workload on the courts. The chief Crown prosecutor for Edmonton, D. C. Abbott was quoted recently as say- ing that he has instructed his prosecutors not to negotiate pleas. "If prosecutors have suffi- cient evidence to proceed on a charge, they Mr. Ab- bott said. Mr. Hartigan said he agreed -with the Edmonton's prosecutor's position. "Fol- lowing his definition of plea bargaining, we don't do it." 6 honorary chiefs to be inducted Six outstanding Canadians will be inducted as honorary chiefs of the Blood Indian tribe during Indian Days at Standoff July 15. This year's ceremonies will honor the RCMP in commem- oration of the long-standing re- lationship between the force and the Bloods during the past 100 years. The BJood Indians will be decked out in native costume and the RCMP in scarlet and full dress. In a telephone interview from Edmonton, Mr. Abbott said Tusday he didn't in- struct his prosecutors not to follow the practice. We got together in a meet- ing, he said, and decided that plea bargaining is not proper procedure. "There is no judi- cial authority for it." Mr. Abbott said while plea negotiations may speed up the judicial process, "We can't take short-cuts in law." If the courts are over-load- ed, he said, more judges, court rooms and prosecutors should be provided. LCC board may protest bursary Governors of Lethbridge Community College are ex- pected to be asked to take some form of action today against a government burs- ary program for the Univer- sity of Lethbridge. The LCC board, which meets at 6 p.m., will consider recommendations from Dr. Keith Robin, director of con- tinuing education: Pat Webb, executive assistant to presi- dent Dr. C. D. Stewart; and from J. L. MacNeil, student services director. Each director has stated the per student-per-year government bursary, design- ed to boost enrolment at the TI of L. places college pro- grams in jeopardy. LCC governors have also been asked to protest state- ments by Dr. Neil Holmes, U of L board chairman, who claims the bursary fund will benefit institutions other than the local university.

Mayor Veiner said the transit system deficit is about per year ex- cessive for a small citj. "We're not going to pick up the deficit by a long way, bat it should run within rea- he said. The mayor added that hs didn't expect many com- plaints from senior citizens and said in fact he had had some senior citizens upset that other senior citizens Who could easily afford to pay 25... saying it all with a Kiss and red roses MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP PHONE 327-1515 were getting a free ride. The free passes were also good only during off-peak hours. The senior citizens who don't already have a se- nior citizens pass will also have to pay for a lifetime half-fare pass. All Lethbridge senior cit- izens have been eligible for free transit service at all hours for about two years. Before 1971 they had to take a means test to get a free pass and had a ticket punched with each ride so that their trips could be rec- orded and a subsidy paid to the transit system to pick up the cost of the servke. The regular fare here of 10 cents is going up to 15 cents July 1. Council voted to do away with the dime fare they instituted in January 1972 because of concern over a deficit that amounted to in 1972. That vote and others over bus purchase decisions the latest coming Monday night when council refused to buy more buses including two transit buses they were told were part of tie system's regular replacement have raised the perennial de- bate over whether or not pub- lic transportation should be considered a utility like sew- er, water and electric utilities or an essential service like the police and fire depart- ments. The current debate, in the eyes of at least one alder- man, has made shambles of council's earlier policy that the transit system is a ser- vice. Despite distribution of 10, 000 pamphlets door-to-door advertising the meeting, only 40 persons showed up Tues- day night to express their in- terest in forming a permanent consumer group in the city. Meeting organizers, howev- er, were not discouraged by the turn-out and plan to have another session in the near future. Those attending the meet- ing held at the Civic Sports Centre, were also encouraged to unite, and to become ac- quainted with regulations which protect the consumer, by Sally Merchant, of the fed- eral department of consumer and corporate affairs in Ed- monton. Mrs. Merchant told the group there is a need for to- day's consumer to be armed with a great deal more information than be now has when he goes shopping. Although it is not true that cheating by dealers is inevit- able, there are numerous ways a consumer can get less than value for his dollar, she said. "People are inclined to think you've got to get cheat- ed a little and fail to report incidents when they do get cheated." Mrs. Merchant cited the case of a man who one day decided to count the number of tubes in a box of roll-your- own cigarettes and found less than ths number stated on ihe package- When he returned the box to the dealer and received another, he also counted the tubes in it and found the number short. He reported it TO the consumer affairs de- partment. Subsequent counts found no more than 191 tubes in any 200-tube package. The result was a promise from the manufacturer that there would never be less AU Vvov "UO vx It may seem insignificant to ths consumer, Mrs. Mer- chant said, but when the mis- takes multiplied they repre- sent hundreds of millions of dollars. A law which has yet to be put in effect will force manu- facturers to put such informa- tion on their packages as the size of the product in proportion to the size of the package, where the product is from and the exact quant- ities and weights, she said.

An Opportunities For Youth project, Consumer Investiga- tion and Aid, is attempting to organize the permanent con- sumer group. RETAIL INSPECTORS BYPASS LETHBRIDGE Lethbridge stores are not subject to retail inspection once goods are on the shelves, says a counsellor for the federal consumer and cor- porate affairs department. Stores in Calgary and Ed- monton have regular checks by department inspectors who have the authority to pull a product from the shelf if it does not meet quality stand- ards, Sally Merchant said here Tuesday. For example, food which is graded and sold for the price that grade commands must be that grade or the inspec- tors order the price be chang- ed or even that the product not be sold, she said. If even three or four con- sumers complain to the de- partment about a certain food which has been found to be of poor quality, that's enough to have the entire store retail inspected, Mrs. Merchant said. But, the inspectors bypass Lethbridge, mainly because their offices are in Edmon- ton or Calgary and they sel- dom leave those centres, she said. For that reason, she added, "it's more important for peo- ple in Lethbridge to be fam- iliar with the various laws governing consumer products than their counterparts in Ed- monton of Calgary.'' Theatre approval delay 110 Beckel comment University of Lethbndge president Dr. Bill Beckel said Tuesday he has no comment to make on an aldermanic decision to delay support of a proposed U of L theatre ccm- pitJA. City council Monday de- cided to seek further in- formation on the million project from Dr. Beckel and suggested a meeting with the Alberta cabinet on the matter should also be con- sidered. The cabinet is expected to i meet in Lethbridge this fall. "I haven't received any of- ficial word from the city on their decision and I really don't have any Dr. Beckel said. The university president had asked council to en- dorse the project, claiming city support would strength- en the campus position with the advanced education de- partment. A city spokesman said Tuesday aldermen are not likely to support the univer- sity complex because of deci- sions already made by Ad- anced Education Minister Jim Foster. Mr. rosier nas statea no new buildings will be con- structed on the local campus until U of L enrolment in- creases, and, until commu- nity use of university facili- ics can be proven.
