Research prerequisite Last in a series Lethbridge one of few cities without rehab centre By RUDY Herald one of the HAUGENEDER Staff Writer Since the mid- 1950s various city groups have been tackling the problem of setting up a half way house here. Lethbri d g e, with its popula- tion of more than is few cities of its size on the continent with- out a rehabilitation centre. One of the main reasons for past Failures to establish one here has been that no group has made a concerted effort to obtain one. The efforts undertaken to date by the groups, usually numerically small but well meaning, have never armed themselves with the research- ed material required to sway the support of politicians- necessary to obtain public funds. It has been noted that theso groups generally fail to con- tact MPs, MLAs and. other politicians who could weigh such a venture favorably. Often such details as: the number of people affected in both the short and long range; the amount of money required immediately and in the fu- ture; and where Hie centre would be located, were not mentioned. Halt way house proponents in other Canadian centres suggest these answers may not be made public earlier because of public reaction: fear, hate, arger all of which spell "ignorance." Fear and suspicion occur because most individuals re- quiring rehabilitation are for- mer prison inmates "ex- cons." Ex prisoners, both male and female, suffer from pub- lic ignorance. Employers will not hire them either because of written or unwritten em- ployment policies not to hire ex-cons. In Lelhbridge, how ever, there is one exception to the rule about researching the halfway house problem. This city's John Howard So- ciety is currently involved in an extensive study which should reveal in facts and figures the need for such a centre here. Sociologists and psycholo- gists say society's present at- titude of bitterness, hate, and repression towards those re- quiring rehabilitation must change Two men escaped injury early this morning when fire gutted the living room and kitchen area of apartment 208 in Larkspur Apartments at 1603 Scenic Heights. Two pumper trucks and 10 firefighters responded to the call at a.m. and confined the fire to an estimated damage. Apparently the fire broke out in the chesterfield while the two occupants were sleeping Fire officials believe a cig arette butt or ash slartod the fire. One of the occupants jumped to safety from the second floor apartment through a window screen while the other man tried to douse the fire with water before walking out the door. Captain Jim McKenna of the fire department said it was lucky for all that one of the men woke up and noticed the fire.

Prisoner demands for chan- ges resulted in loss of life and destruction the reasons for which are just now becoming known. Up to 85 per cent of those who spend time in jail will return again, federal statis- tics reveal. The reasons cited arc: the trauma of adjusting from a regimented institutional state where everything is looked after, to the relative freedom of the "outside." There is also a lack of jobs and those that exist are men- ial. In essence, a prisoner's abilities are never fully util- ized, and he is not allowed to exist as a real person, the prisoners themselves com- plain. Although former inmates have undergone some form of trade training in prison, they often still require considerablo help to readjust to a normal life pattern.
