Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE UTHBKIDGI HERALD March Wl Tim Traynor Hire a needy student In a few thousands of uni versity students will finish their

the university students will be thousands of high school students also doing the rounds looking for and its pretty safe to say that a very small percentage will receive any at even Merchants and businessmen are again this year being asked to try to make room in their establishments for a student or And most can manage regardless of how small the operation It just takes a little juggling to

strikingly illustrated in figures con firmed by Attorney General Edgar Gerhart in the legislature The figures showed that Calgary law breakers get twice as many jail terms and three times fewer oppor

that of the attitude specific judges are apt to take to certain cases and hcrvy to get before the one that is most likely to take the least tough The cynicism that this breeds throughout the public in respect to the legal system has never adequate ly been considered by those respon sible for the administration of jus Much is blamed on permis siveness for the serious deteriora tion in respect for
