Lower level 7th Street Shopping Mall lelhbrliige, Alberta Phono (403) 328-7411 Public feeling reflected by downward parole trend The downward trend in the number of paroles granted this year is in direct response to favorable public reaction to parole system, says the execu- tive director of the National Parole Service. During an address to the an- nual meeting of the Lelhbridge John Howard Society Lloyd Pisapio said: "We have had several prob- lems develop in our system and the Parole Board has had. to lighten up. It's a priority re- quirement of the board to pro- tect society, but we must also protect the offender from get- ting in more trouble." He said he's not happy with statistics that show consid- erable numbers of people re- turning to prison after using the services of the parole sys- tem and the John Howard So- ciety. Mr. Pisapio applauded the John Howard Society for the primary role it has played in parole supervision. However, he suggested it might be the right time for the society to switch its role to one of in- forming and educating the public about the parole sys- tem. He said it is important for the system of rehabilitation to have access to more accurate statis- tics. To provide such statistics contact must bo made by an organization within the com- munity. Close contact with ex con- victs ard their families is'need- ed in order to provide informa- tion on why the ex convict adapted to the norm rather than repeated the offense. He suggested the John How- ard Society and tlie National Parole Service begin to ex- plore the idea of research and public education as soon as possible. "Maybe we can budget for it in 1974 or 1975 lie said. "If Hie John Howard Society can't raise the money for such work then Ottawa will help."

Two checks at the same local supermarket, one on March 14 and the other March 28, show- ed price fluctuations either up or down on 20 to 58 items. Eight of those items were specials one week but not the other. The rest of the products varied in price for another rea- son. Taking all items, specially- priced or otherwise, the total bill dropped 51.58 in two weeks. The most noticeable changes were in meats and poultry. Most items checked had Back to school order evaded EDMONTON The provin- cial government has declined to answer directly an appeal from Lethbridge West MLA Dick Gruenwald asking that schools in rural Southern Alberta be op- ened and teachers ordered back to work. Mr. Gruenwald asked in the legislature Friday whether it was true the strike bound schools "are going- to resume- classroom work on Monday whether the strike is settled or not." He said outside the legisla- ture he had no inside informa- tion on what might be happen- ing in Hie strike but merely wanted to know if the govern- ment might impose compulsory arbitration ordering the teach- ers back to work. Labor Minister Bert Hohol said the question was "hypo- thetical." Botti sides are working "stren- uously" to conclude an agree- ment with the help of four members of the government's mediation staff he said. The minister appealed to the more than teachers and trustees "to use every moment to the best possible advantage CUFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB MEOICAl DENTAL BLDG. lower Level PHONE 327-7822 PARK'S-NEILSON'S Dry Cleaners Ltd.

Dr. Hohol also said there could be no provision for cerli- ied leachers not involved in he strike going into the class- rooms and taking over as vol- unteers during the dispute. In addition, the resources of he' government's correspond- ence schools were not available o students whose eachers are on strike. He was willing to travel to to assist in the ne- gotiations. However, he had already been to the strike scene :wice in two weeks in an effort :o help. The government presented a new proposal to the trustees and teachers earlier this week. A conciliation board has rec- ommended contract increases of C.2 per cent in teachers' salaries and Z.7 per cent in teachers' benefits. Trustees ac cepted the recommendation but Ihe teachers rejected it. The teachers asked a 7.5- per cent pay increase and for half their health and hospital insurance costs to be said for by the school district. Parents in the rural areas are making their anger al (lie length of the strike heard. A meeting at Stavely Friday night voted to telegram trustee negotiators in Lethbridge de- manding they give the striking teachers a contract equal to that of Medicine Hat and Leth- bridge. Equal pay for equal work referring to the fact that the striking teachers aro asking for wage parity with Lcthhridge and Medicine Hat been Ihc theme of the leachers hat- tic with trustees since they walked off their jobs March 12.
