S. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Summer Is coming. Be ready with a pair of Prescription Sunglasses. a month in jail First in a series Is there a need for a half-way house here? By HUDY HAUGENEDKR Herald Staff Writer A recent re- port published bv a Univer- sity of Alberta professor stat- e d Alberta's judicial sys- tem is the most punitive in the nation. Whether t ii e report has any significance on today's sys- tem is not relevant. What is relevant however, is that about men pass through the doors of the Lefh- bridge Correctional Institute annually, serving mostly one to three-month minor sen- tences. And most of these men are repeaters, thus reducing the actual number of men im- prisoned to an estimated 500. Approximate figures show that it costs between and per month to keep 8 man in jail here. Most of these inmates, when released, have no spe- cific place to go job or home and have little or no money with which to sup- port themselves. In prison they may take educational upg r a d i n g courses and plan a more pro- ductive life when released. However, the odds are against them, and they soon find themselves in court and consequently in prison usually for a longer stay than before. The major problems facing released inmates are: lack of funds, lack of a place to stay, and no job. Sociologists say that former inmates, faced by these prob- lems, have no other avenue to turn to than petty crime and drunkenness. For the past year, civic- minded persons in the com- munity have been campaign- ing for a half-way house and rehabilitation type of centre. Such a centre would help former inmates to readjust to "outside" life and help peo- ple with severe personal prob- lems addiction, psychologi- cal difficulties and those dis- criminated against because of criminal records back into the productive life-line of so- ciety. By virtue of the number of male prisoners at the Leth- bridge jail, and the number of women without homes or visible means of support In southern Alberta, a half-way type of centre is needed to reduce crime and the public cost of incarcerating them. At present there is no place for them to seek help south of Calgary, and those facil- ities in the more northern parts of the province are al- ready overcrowded. Hence, prisons seem to be the only place these have to look forward to. While the quest for a half- way house continues, those who stand to gain the most from one here express opti- mism about the results to b6 derived from one. The Herald has conducted an extensive study into the feasibility of developing such a centre here. Wednesday. Something for all at Symphony show By JUDI WALKER Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Symphony Association presented a "gou- lash" type program Monday night, last in its 1972 series. The two hour variety show had something for almost every age group and musical taste. The symphony chorus, di- rected by Walter Goerzen, opened the concert with two sottish and serious pieces, God Made Our Hands and One Lit- tle Candle. In their second performance of the fcst half of the concert, the chorus displayed the least common of the types of vo- calization in Liaboffs Lullaby, from Eight Russian Folk Songs for Orchestra, as the members hummed and bopped and mmmmed. The choir members sang the Kaptain Kangaroo song, High Hopes, with incredible serious ness, but redeemed themselves with their minia- ture choral opera "Speak Up." The opera took a humorous look at the communication breakdown between a young man (Lon Morris) and his family father and bases; sister The family con- tinually ask him what he has to say for himself, but never give him a chance to speak. Eventually he asks to say just one word: HELP! The chorus obviously enjoy- ed performing the opera and spread their enthusiasm to the audience. Colleen and Michael Kauf- mann, returning to Lethbridge from Calgary, sang Verdi's Pur ti Reveggo. Later, bring- ing back reminiscenses of Nel- son Eddie and Jeannctte Mc- Preference? The Herald has learned the students who may have suc- cessfully applied for Opportuni- ties For Youth grants may have not yet been notified be- cause of publicity preferences. It was disclosed yesterday that the western regional co-or- dinator of the OFY had made an agreement with the Calgary news media not to disclose the names until Thursday.

An enthusiastic response was given to the Foster Trio for their clarinet, piano, and cello trio. The threesome, Eddie Gnandt, Margaret Foster, and Perry Foster, performed Bee- thoven's Trio for clarinet, Cello and Piano Opus 11, and the Third Movement Theme and Variations. Walter Goerzen and Arthur Hunt, both well-known to the Lethbridge musical audience, sang solos. Mr. Goerzen per- formed Dies Bildness ist Bezaubernd Schoen, an aria from The Magic Flute. Mr. Hunt sang OF Man River from Showboat and Song of the Open Road. A performance that could have stood a morsel more pol- ish was given by the Francis Ensemble. The newly-formed family group delivered three instrumental works. A folk song chorus, formed especially for the concert, pre- sented a pleasant taste of more contemporary music. The nine-member group under the direction of Lily Larter per- formed a Carpenters song, For All We Know, and One Tin Sol- dier, the theme song from the movie Billie Jack. licence plates sold A tolal of new licence plates were sold at the Leth- bridge Motor Vehicle Branch up to the deadline of April 30 more than the number of 1971 plates sold during the corresponding period last year.

Associate membership fees are available for all local rcsi- in joining the group. The fee is annually. The Lethbridge Friendship Centre is closed, and other Al- berta centres face the same prospect. Seven c e n t r es scattered throughout the province face closure due to delays in obtain- ing their budgets. Reg Newkirlc, Pincher Creek president of the Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association says information he has obtain- ed "would indicate the money, due April 1, will not be avail- able until mid June." The Lethbridge centre is fac- ed with.multiple problems. Closure was forced after Peter Zoratti, the centre build- ing's landlord, ordered the water to be turned off after water from the centre flowed into the Salvation Army prem- ises located on the main floor of the two storey structure. Cause of the problem has not yet been pinpointed, but three Pageant may be dead The coffin lid to the Sight, Sound and the Fury pageant is being closed, with the federal secretary of state's Opportuni- ties For Youth program holding the nails. Half the estimated cost of re-enacting historic epi- sodes of Alberta's past, planned in the Sight, Sound and the Fury, was to be sponsored by an OFY grant. Dan Seyl, of Lethbridge, ap- plied for a grant to cov- er the cost of students prepar- ing the Fort Whoop-Up produc- tion site and the cost of actors. The application was rejected, leaving the Alberta Historic Productions society, sponsors of the pageant, looking for new areas for financing and no money to work with. Steve Kotch, society member, refused to speculate what would happen now, but added: "Its not lost yet." The Calgary tourist associa- tion is keenly interested in tak- ing over the project should it fall through here. It has been learned the Cal- gary group is already looking for the huge spotlights neces sary to bring off the military tatoo-like project. However, they have indicated they will not pirate the pageant unless all efforts to produce the show locally have been ex- hausted. reasons have been offered: faulty a tap was ac- cidentally left on; or someone broke into the centre and inten- tionally left the running. Other water spill over inci- dents have occurred in the past. Also, the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta, which operates the centre, is currently past its overdraft limit at the bank and is "flat broke." Earlier this year there were implications that the federal government, through the secre- tary of state, had set up an emergency fund from which the centres could draw tem- porary resources. However, all monies provided are administered by the pro- vincial government, w h i c h shares in the over all costing of the centres, and no one in Edmonton seems to k n o w where the money is or what has happened to it. Mr. Newkirk said provincial officials normally in charge of such a fund have "hummed and hawed" but not stated whether such an emergency fund does exist. Locally, some Friendship so- ciety board members have speculated the fiscal is a way "of forcing !he centres Mr. Newkirk is advising all Alberta centre directors and board members to telegram their district MPs to initiate some action to resolve the cur- rent financial crisis. Bob Ray, the Edmonton rep- resentative to the federal secre- tary of state said today that the federal government had sent is share of the cost sharing grant to the province already. He urged that action be initi- ated to push the friendship cen- tres grant through the Alberta legislature. John Smith, a preventive so- cial services chairman of the friendship centres committee said that in his opinion, the grants will not be available until mid June. ISTo emergency grants were available, he said. Mr. Kay said the province has written back to the federal gov- ernment asking what its share of the cost sharing program will be. He condemned this tactic be- cause the province already has the federal contribution and the letter is pointless. "The money is available for release." he said, and this should stimulate bankers to al- low centres to have overdrafts, Mr. Ray said. Mr. Smith suggested that the centre here approach city coun- cil and ask for more money. Mr. Newkirk said of the sug- gestion: "Buck passing by the province." Remanded The trial of five men charged with causing a disturbance in a public place which stemmed from an incident at the El Rancho Motor Hotel cabaret March 18 was adjourned for completion May 11. The four Lethbridge men, Melv i n Alexander, Richard Burrows, Alfred Bloome and Ken Olson remain free on bail from previous court appearanc- es and the American, Michael Swallow remains in police cus- tody. The five are to appear In court on the charge May 9 for a remand to the trial date. The original five and Michael D. Waggoner, 29 of Anchorage, Alaska, appeared in a special session of magistrate's court at the provincial court house this morning. No further Informa- tion was available at press time.
