Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta It - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - Wednesday, March 3, 1971  Smythe ordered to face trial TORONTO (CP) - The Ontario Court of Appeal Tuesday upheld an Ontario Supreme Court ruling, ordering C. Stafford Smythe to face trial on income tax evasion charges in county court. The appeal court decided the case was similar to a Quebec appeal court decision, in which the Supreme Court of Canada refused a further appeal. Chief Justice G. A. Gale said the three-man appeal court egreed unanimously with Chief Justice Dalton Wells of the Ontario Supreme Court that the Bill of Rights does not prevent the Crown from trying Mr. Smythe by indictment. Toronto lawyer J. J. Robi-nette, counsel for the Toronto Maple Leaf hockey club president, said Tuesday he has been instructed to appeal the ruling before the Supreme Court of Canada. Lawyer Joseph Sedgewick of Toronto, representing the Crown, said any other decision would have caused "complete chaos" in (he courts. INVOLVES 9289,372 Mr. Smythe is accused of evading taxes on $289,372 income and filing faulty or misleading returns between 1964 and 1967. Earlier Tuesday, Mr. Robi-nette argued that the attorney-general of Canada does not have the right to arbitrarily choose a course of action that imposes a mandatory jail sentence. Last year, Mr. Robinette objected when the federal Crown prosecutor elected to try the case by indictment rather than summarily. Conviction by indictment carries a mandatory jail term of two months to five years. Summary conviction provides for no mandatory jail term. AFL organizes march on house CALGARY (CP) - The Alberta Federation of Labor plans to replace lobbying with a mass demonstration at the legislature buildings in Edmonton this year to protest the high level of unemolov-ment Many of the demonstrators wUl be unemployed people from across the province who the federation plans to bring to the capital March 19. Union members and welfare rights groups are also expected to join the protest. Eugene Mitchell, AFL executive secretary, said official figures show 41,000 people without jobs in the province but actual numbers are "certainly far above that." A brief was being prepared for presentation to Premier Harry Strom and his cabinet at the meeting during the rally, but no arrangements have been made for the meeting. No indication was made of the number expected to march on the legislature, but the federation said the demonstrations will be peaceful, with a number of speakers. FLOOD VICTIM - Rescue workers pull the body of a flood victim from the Mangue Canal in Rio de Janeiro. At least 129 persons were reported to have died as result of the flash floods which struck Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo last week and then continued swelling Monday after heavy rains. Jail doors clang shut behind Anglican minister LONDON, Ont. (CP) - The cells of Middlesex County jail clanged shut on a 30-year-old Anglican Church minister Tuesday after he refused to pay a $20 fine for a parking offence. Rev. Vivian Cohen, a minister from Jamaica who is taking post-graduate studies at the University of Western Ontario, will serve a three-day Marriage not dying out LOS ANGELES (AP) -Marriage is not a dying^ institution but is changing for the better because the old reasons for marrying are dying out, says Jean Stone, who has spent years studying marriages. "The divorces which are raising the statistics are either of the very young, who married for the old trap of status symbol, or they end marriages of 20 years or longer which have been sour for a long time but were held together for the sake of children," Mrs. Stone said here. She outlines her views in a series on Marriage as a De- Gambling fever treatment claimed a real winner LONDON (AP) - A British hospital claims it has a cure for gambling fever that's a real winner. The idea is to make betting boring. Doctors say half of the addicts who undergo a voluntary 10-day course of treatment at Rainhill Mental Hospital end up lucky and kick the habit. The volunteers spend all their waking hours in a special ward decked out like one of Britain's many legal betting shops. Racing pictures and form guides cover every wall. Sporting newspapers are littered over the tables. Loudspeakers blare out horse and dog racing results from tracks all over the country. Tape recorders carry the babble of bookies and the background roar on the racecourse. Patients can make as many bets as they like or think they can afford and nurses arrive regularly to take the slips away. But no money is used and there are no winnings collected. For more than 12 hours every day the addicts are ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 forced to read and talk about nothing but gambling. This is where boredom tends to set in. "The crucial point is that the patients are subjected to gambling talk and activity for every minute of their day," said J. M. Wilson, secretary of the hospital, near Liverpool. "It is this, of course, which leads to the feeling of utter boredom. We have found, in many cases that the effect is lasting." Substitute singer wins opera contest SEATTLE (AP) - Ingrid Suderman, a 26-year-old soprano from Vancouver won the Metropolitan Opera's northwest regional auditions here and the right to compete in the national semi-finals March 22 in New York. Mrs. Suderman, who entered the auditions as a substitute, also won the $300 F. K. Weyerhaeuser award. She entered the competition after the original Western Canada audition winner, Thomas Graff, revealed he was a U.S. citizen who had entered Canada to avoid the draft and was declared ineligible. *5� The Public in invited to meet with the City Council to discuss matters pertaining to Civic Affairs. Any person interested in making statements to or asking questions of Council may appear at a Public Meeting to be held in the Council Chamber on Monday, March 8th at 7:00 p.m. John Gerla City Clerk posed Hope beginning this week at the University of California at Los Angeles. "The reasons for marriage, even in the last generation, were so different from those of today," she said. "A girl stayed in her family home until she wed-she was expected to get married. "Not being married Imposed some kind of onus on her as a human being. "Now a young girl frequently takes an apartment as soon as she completes high school and begins her college or working years as an independent entity. She has a chance to discover exactly who she is all by herself." HAVE 'CANDOR' Another reason for her optimism over the future of marriage as an institution is that now young people "have more candor and are more willing to talk things out in advance." Mrs. Stone, wife of biographer Irving Stone, blames materialistic society and a happily-ever-after syndrome for many marriage problems. With the pressure off the young to marry, women can be more selective about the husbands they choose, Mrs. Stone says. Her study of marriage as it affected men of history ranging from Freud to presidents, and interviews with men at all ages and economic levels, convinced Mrs. Stone that men "expect they will have understanding, and above everything else, a lack of competition in marriage." "There is so much competition for a man out in the world that he desperately seeks security in the haven of his marriage. This is security in its good sense-a comradeship. Many of the men studied realized that at 18 they had not had the wisdom to pick a woman who would still be wearing well at 45." This, Mrs. Stone believes, "is one of the great advan- Gets free trip to stampede OTTAWA (CP) - Controller Lorry Greenberg has been selected for an all-expense-paid trip to the Calgary Stampede, but he says he's not interested unless he can find out how come he's so lucky. Mr. Greenberg, appointed by council to tine Central Canada Exhibition Association board of directors this year, was one of five of the directors picked for the free trip. The controller said the association has been unwilling to explain and justify its travel policies which, he said, leaves its motives and veracity open to speculation and conjecture. "Is it really necessary, for instance, to send five directors to the Calgary Stampede or some other fair when one or two would serve the same purpose in proposing new or expanded programs based on their observations and review of other operations?" he asked.

The company said the difficulties will close its plants in Cornwall, Ont.. and Two Hills, Alta. sentence rather than pay a fine on a conviction of failing to stop at a red fight. He says the light was amber, not red, as a policeman testified. "In a nutshell, it was his word against mine and mine against his and the court took the officer's," he said in an interview. "The police are not always right and if the courts are always going to take the policeman's word, why did I have to bother going down and giving my version?" Mr. Cohen wore his clerical collar and carried a handful of books as he was transferred from a cell in the courthouse to the county jail in a police van. Safety belt inadequate SMOKY LAKE (CP) -Proper safety equipment might have saved the life of a construction worker who fell from a bridge Dec. 22, a coroner's jury said here. The inquiry was looking into the death of Paul Verville Bur-dette, 22, of Edmonton, who fell from a bridge under construction on the North Saskatchewan River eight miles south of here. The inquiry, headed by provincial chief coroner Dr. M. M. Cantor, concluded the safety belt Mr. Burdette was wearing was "inadequate." He fell less than 20 feet. Smoky Lake Is 40 miles northeast of Edmonton.
