Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Toetday, May 15, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Prison employees reinstated LANSING, Mich. (AP) A Civil Service Commission exam- iner has ordered reinstatement with partial back pay for four employees fired from Southern Michigan prison at Jackson for having long sideburns. However, the hearing officer, Richard Meyers, denied the quartet's appeal against the hair regulations. He said Mon- day the four muse comply with corrections department regu- lations to gain reinstatement. Meyers found fault with the department's reasons for impos- ing the grooming regulations, saying it relied "tco heavily on the security and identification factors to justify the reason- ableness of the hair-grooming regulation." Corrections officials said the grooming regulations were needed to simplify identi- fication. Meyers said the department has shown "It is reasonable in such, a large institution to ex- pect those with authority over the inmates to set a good ex- ample. A double standard here could cause considerable in- mate problems.1' However, he ordered the cor- rections department to set up a new committee to evaluate grooming regulations in a se- curity context and report within six months. On condition they comply grooming regulations, Meyers ordered three psy- chiatrics reinstated in their for- mer posts with pay retroactive to March 13. They were fired Jan. 20. A guard, fired earlier, also will get pay retroactive to March 13. The back pay was ordered Meyers said, because the deci- sion was not rendered within 'Ai working days after the end of the Civil Service hearings, which is normally the case. Summer jobs EDMONTON (CP) The de- partment of national defence (DND) will provide about 000 jobs this summer for stu- dents in the prairie provinces and northwestern Ontario in a 510.4 million program to hire more than Canadian stu- dents. Students will be hired as ci- vilian employees or training as reservists. One employment program is for older senior high school, university and vocation- al school students while a ca- det training program covers the under 18-year group. Sculptor dies MONTREAL (CP) Laureat Valliere, Quebec's foremost wood sculptor, died in hospital here. He was 85. He was known chiefly for his religious carvings which decor- ate the inside of more than 30 churches in the province. Ex- perts in wood sculpture consid- er the interior of St. Dominique Church in Quebec City to be his master work. REGINA (CP) Heavy de- mand for farm machinery this spring can't be met by dealers ind second-hand machinery is winging "ridiculous prices." Several Regina implement dealers said in a recent sur- that supplies of tractors and cultivators are rapidly dim- inishing. Farmers may have to wait three to four months for [eJivery even if they are lucky nough to have their orders fill- ed. "This is a year when imple- ment dealers could have made a few dollars and now we can't fully meet the "aid Dennis Allard, manager of Vascana Ford Equipment and Sales Ltd. of Regina. "It is a matter of sales be- ing greater than production orecasts said P. L. l, manager of Minneapolis Equipment Ltd. of Regina. Darts in space Kay Bloom, of New York City, stands among the palms at Cape Kennedy, Fia., with a dart board similar to the one the Skylab astronauts will have aboard their orbiting lab to relieve the tedium of the 28-day flight. The board is mode of fabric instead of cork and the darts are head- ed with material which adheres to the instead of the usual metal spearheads. First of many expected draft evader now Canadian MONTREAL StanlevJ. Pietlock. a 30-year-old draft evader from Wilmington, Del., recently became citizen of Can- ada, taking an irrevocable step that is being chosen by more and more of the young antiwar exiles here. "Its a big thing, and sure it was recalled Piet- lock, a Fordham University graduate who now teaches school in Toronto. "But the whole thrust of my life has be- come Canadian, so it made sense.' Pietlock is in the first ranks of what is expected to become a wave of newly naturalized Canadians who left the United States to avoid serving in Viet- nam. It was five years ago, in the late 1960s, that the trickle of young men moving north across the border turned into a flood. Since five years is the length of residence required for Cana- dian citizenship, the men who arrived in that flood are now facing what many of them re- gard as the biggest decision of their lives. Deciding to come up here to avoid the draft was tough said a young Kentuck- ian who plans to become a citi- zen when his five years ends this autumn. "But it's nothing compared to when I march in Mock trials staged HALIFAX (CP) -Sir John A. Macdonald stood accused here during the weekend of high treason "by creating a con- stitution which he knew would utlimately self-destruct." But Canada's first prime min- ister, portrayed by five differ- ent teen-agers during five dif- ferent mock trials, argued his way to acquittals five times. The mock trials were part of the national student debating seminar that ended here Satur- day after a week of debates in communities across the prov- ince. Students on the prosecution for the trials played the parts of such famous Canadians as Sir Oliver Mowatt, Sir Richard Car- twright, Edwin Blake, Sir Wil- frid Laurier and George Brown. Students on the defence acted out the parts of Sir George Stephen, Sir George Btienne Gartier, Sir Charles Tupper and Sir Leonard Tilley. Debates ranged from the tra- ditional parliamentary debate to the mock trials at the Hali- fax law courts building. to the courtroom and take that cat." Taking the oath, which in- cludes the pledge of "true alle- giance to Her Majesty Queen does not formally constitute renunciation of Am- e r i c a n citizenship, but it amounts to practically the same thing, giving the United States government grounds to revoke a man's citizenship whenever it finds out that he has become a Canadian. Although these new Canadi- ans are still just as liable as they ever were to prosecution on draft offenses if they return to the United States, the trend toward Canadian citiaanship gives a new dimension to the debate over whether they should be granted amnesty. Almost all of America's draft exiles are in Canada but be- cause this country is officially unconcerned with the draft status of a man who is immi- grating or applying for citizen- ship, there is no accurate esti- mate of their number. It is known, though, that there are many more immigrants from the United States, and more of them becoming citizens than there were five or 10 years ago. At least twice recently, pres- ident Nixon has referred to the draft dodgers and deserters in exile as a "few but even Patrick J. Buchanan, a special White House consultant, concedes that "7.000 to seems a justifiable estimate o the actual Canadian contin gent." Many of the young exiles themselves think the figure is four or five times Buchanan' estimate. Canadian govemmen statistics show that from 1964 to 1971 more than Amsr ican men in their 20's declarec themselves as immigrants here and it is known that others came without declaring them selves. But a number of those immi grants presumably came for reasons unrelated to the draft and others of them have sub sequently returned to the Unit ed States. The statistics on new citizens are similarly unrevaaling, bu the judges who process theii applications confirm that thi number is increasing, and con versations with exiles from Vancouver to Montreal show that many plan to take the oath soon. A practical reason for doin so is to get a passport; Ameri cans arriving in Canada do no need passports, but withou them many of the young ex lies are now prevented froir traveling to any other country Another reason is that becom ing a citizen removes the risk of deportation from Canada fo some criminal offense like nar cotics violation. Farm machinery demand bringing ridiculous prices One spokesman explained that manufacturers order raw ma- terial for machinery three years in advance. In 1909-70, econom- ic conditions were unfavorable for farmers and no one antici- pated the upturn. Another spokesman said sales are up 10 to IS per cent this year. Found safe DUNVEGAN (CP) Two youths reported missing on a canoe trip Sunday night on the Peace River in northwestern Alberta were found safely yes- terday. Bob Biegel, 18. and Tim Em- ond, 17, both of Fairview, were sought after they failed to reach a prearranged spot af- ter a three-mile trip downriver. Mr. Allard said farmers are paying "ridiculous prices" for used machinery at auction sales. Some are paying as much for four-year-old machinery as it cost when new. J. J. Busch cf United Grain Growers in Regina said fertil- izer also is hard to get, par- ticularly for those who were late placing their orders. "If farmers made up their minds in a reasonable time they receive their orders. But if they gave the company short notice, it's pretty well impossible to supply them.''
