Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THl ICTHBRIDCE HIRAIO - TutKfay, March 23, 1971 Murderers best-behaved prisoners TORONTO (CP) - Murderers seem to be the best-behaved prisoners and the least likely to wind up back in trouble If paroled, says a report by a University of Ottawa re-�earcher published Monday. Colin Sheppard of the university's centre of criminology says that of 119 Canadian murderers who were released on parole between 1920 and 1967 only one killed a second time. eighty-nine of the 119 were still on parole as of April, 1968, 19 had either died or left the country and 11 had returned to prison for parole violations and other offences. That means that fewer than 10 per cent of paroled murderers are returned to prison compared with a relapse rate of from 50 to nearly 70 per cent of all offenders in both federal and provincial prisons, says Mr. Sheppard. M r. Sheppard's findings, based on a study of violent offenders in the United States and Canada, appear in the current issue of the Canadian Journal of Criminology and Corrections. He defines a violent offender as one who kills or nearly kills another. He collected most of his information from studying cases of murder and manslaughter where such motives as robbery were either secondary or non-existent. SOME DANGEROUS Mr. Sheppard says that he Is not advocating "leniency toward the violent offender" and concedes that many killers are so dangerous they will have to be kept locked up for the rest of their lives. But he says the "violent offender and the crime he committed have not been viewed dispassionately and in the light of knowledge that is available." For instance, he says, the death penalty was retained for the convicted murderers of policemen and prison FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-A-Thoughf 327-4581 guards when Parliament voted in November, 1967, to shelve capital punishment for an experimental five years. Yet a recent Canadian study showed that of the 37 jail and prison guards who were assaulted in the country during a two-year period only seven were attacked by so-called violent offenders and only three of these were murderers. Most of the assailants were serving time for theft and robbery. The only one of the 37 to die of his injuries was beaten by a robber. Mr. Sheppard says part of the explanation may lie in the nature of the murderer. Most killings, he says, are the savage end product of a quarrel between people who are either related or belong to the same economic, racial or neighborhood group and know one another. 'Fosdic' to read spots tabulating June census OTTAWA (CP) - If Li'l Ab-ner's favorite detective, Fearless Fosdick, tends to be a little stupid at times, he's nothing but brilliant in comparison with the government's newest helper, Fosdic. Fosdic is a newly developed machine the Dominion Bureau of Statistics intends to use this summer to tabulate entries in the June 1 census. It reads spots, and only spots. Separate census reports on nearly 22 million Canadian residents will be fed into tne machine in the form of microfilm photographs. Fosdic will read the spots on the film and how they are arrayed, but it will not be able to digest names, addresses or other such data. In this way, the secrecy of individual personal data will be preserved while the census counts the number of men, women and children and such details about them as their educational attainments, household conveniences, work and travel patterns and the makeup of their incomes. FASTER WITH FOSDIC An estimated 40,000 census canvassers, to he hired by mid-May, will call at every household just before June 1 and distribute census forms. These include both forms to account for each individual in the country and forms seeking information about their households, businesses and farmlands. Two-thirds of the -people questioned will have to answer only abbreviated forms. The remaining one-third will have to reply to an extensive questionnaire. Their answers will be taken as representative of the whole population. Fosdic has been developed for the DBS to speed the process of counting and collating all the information obtained. Previously, it had to be done by clerks scribbling with pen and ink for months. This time, computers and other high- Bank of Canada chief comes under fire OTTAWA (CP) - New Democrats and Creditdstes lashed out Monday at Louis Rasminsky, Bank of Canada governor, for his warning that unemployment is needed to offset another bout of inflation. Gerard Laprise (Creditiste- Abtfibi) moved in the Commons that Mr. Rasminsky's $75,000 annual salary be reduced to that of the average unemployed worker until a special committee on unemployment could report. New Democrat Leader T. C. Douglas proposed debate on a motion to affirm that full employment is still a priority. He said Mr. Rasminsky had cast doubt on whether it is. The motions failed to get the needed unanimous consent for debate. speed machines should result in earlier publication of census data. Each, person replying to a census questionnaire will be required to fill in small round Os in the appropriate places. When the forms are microfilmed, the black dots will stand out and Fosdic will convert them into bits of information that can be fed into com-, puters. Fosdic is an acronym for Film Optical Sensing Device for Input to Computers. Once the original forms have been microfilmed and passed through Fosdic, they will ha shredded and destroyed. The Statistics Act requires all Canadian residents to answer census questionnaires completely. But the same act requires the DBS and the census-takers to preserve the secrecy of any individual's census information-even from other branches of the government, such as the tax collectors. Only sums of individual bits of information-such as the number of 24-year-old unmarried women living in a particular suburb-can bs released. There is only one exception to the secrecy rule. Twenty years after a census', the mi-crofilm records can be searched-and then only with the consent of the individual concerned - to establish his age and legal right to qualify for old-age pensions. But the information read by Fosdic and put on magnetic recording tapes for computer use won't include names or Pieces together new govt* ANKARA (Beuter)-Premier designate Nirhat Erim Monday won support of both major political parties in Turkey and began piecing together a new-look coalition government of technocrats and politicians. More titan half the cabinet of some 25 ministers is expected to be drawn from experts outside parliament when Erim announces his government list Wednesday, informed sources said. Erim, a 58-year-old law professor, was' assured of setting up his government when the Justice party of ousted premier Suleyman Demirel decided to join the coalition. The army threatened to take over the country unless a strong government above party interests was formed to carry through reforms' and insure internal stability. NIRHAT ERIM ... Premier-designate Find no trace of mystery diver FREMANTLE, Western Australia (Reuter) - Harbor police and navy guards were put on full alert after a mystery diver was sighted near a United States warship berthed within 200 yards of a Soviet freighter, Royal Australian Navy officials disclosed today. Navy divers examined the hull of the 11,270-ton U.S. amphibious landing ship Monticello French govt, parties win after the diver was sighted on the evening of March 9, but they found nothing unusual and no trace of the mystery frogman, an Australian spokesman said. Berthed within 200 yards of the Monticello was the 9,150-ton Soviet freighter Novoaltaisk, which arrived from Europe on March 9 and left for Australia's eastern states the next day. PARIS. (AP) - Government parties won a majority of the Paris municipal council and made some progress in the other runoff municipal elections Sunday, but there were no radical shifts in French political preferences. Stability was the keynote. Only 30 of the 193 cities of more than 30,000 population switched parties. The government parties gained eight, the left picked up seven and centrists opposed to the government took two. Other changes were moves within these big groupings. Russia bolsters Egypt's forces WASHINGTON (AP) - The Soviet Union has bolstered Egypt's air defences with about 90 more MiG-21 jet interceptors since late last year, United States intelligence reports indicate. The Soviets also have strengthened Egypt's force of SU-7 and earlier-model MiG fighter-bombers which could support ground troops, defence department sources said. Recent U.S. intelligence reports say the Egyptians have 220 MiG-21s, 206 MiG-17s and MiG-15s and 120 SU-7s. This compares with an earlier assessment that, as of last December, Egypt's Soviet-built air force owned 128 MiG-21s, 150 MiG-17s and -15s and 97 SU-7s. Avalanches kill five persons SUSA, Italy (Reuter) - Five persons were killed by weekend avalanches in the Italian, Swiss and French Alps which also left thousands of persons cut off in winter tourist resorts.  Four persons were killed and three others feared dead in north Italy, while in Switzerland a girl cumber died as heavy snowfalls during the weekend caused massive slides. No deaths were reported in mountain areas of central and southern France hit by avalanches and mudslides. The avalanches, apparently triggered by the warm sirocco wind which rises in the Sahara, blocked numerous roads and mountain passes, cut rail lines and disrupted telephone services. Students bark in classes following two boycotts SEBA BEACH (CP) - Students returned to classes Monday after two boycotts last week that reduced student attendance by more than half at Oil refinery ready for operations POINT TOPPER, N.S. (CP) - First crude petroleum for the new Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. refinery here is scheduled to be pumped into storage tanks Wednesday, says manager Kenneth Evans. The $80-million plant on the Strait of Canso is expected to start producing in April. It has a rated capacity of 80,000 barrels a day. The refinery will obtain its crude mainly from South America and the Middle East. Tankers up to 250,000 tons in size will deliver the supply. Output, ranging from aviation fuel to bunker oil, will be sold in Eastern Canada and the United States. Slow growth EAST BERLIN (Reuter) -East Germany has only 37,271 more people than it had six years ago, national census figures show. This represented an increase of 0.2 per cent since the end of 1964, to give the present total of 17,040,926. NOVELIST DIES KOFU, Japan (AP) - Hisaya Fukada, novelist and vice-president of the Japan Alpine Club, died of a heart attack while climbing a mountain. the 17-room Seba Beach school, 50 miles west of Edmonton. Students and parents were protesting a tuition agreement between the Yellowhead and Parkland School Division. The agreement provided for students from nine small municipalities to be shifted to a new high school at Evansburg, 14 miles away. A school board committee Thursday said the Seba Beach high school facilities would remain open for those wishing to attend, but reaffirmed its intention of retaining the tuition agreement for ' students who wanted to attend in Evansburg. The program to be offered and the staff required to operate the Seba Beach facilities will be determined by the enrolment, the committee said. Parents wanted the tuition agreement dropped and facilities at Seba Beach improved and expanded. Principal W. J. Anderson said the absentee rate at the school Monday was "normal." Man shot down in death strip MUNICH (AP) - Czechoslovak border guards gunned down a man trying to escape to the West at the weekend and then handed the wounded man over to East German soldiers, the Bavarian interior ministry said Monday. A spokesman said the would-be refugee, apparently an East German, tried to cross the death strip into northern Bavaria near Rehau where the borders of West Germany, East Germany and Czechoslovakia meet.
