Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueidoy, May It, 197] THE LETHBKIDOE HERAtD 3 POT-LUCK By D'ARCY R1CKARD We have now, so to speak, broken into and enlered "police week." This is the week policemen invite you down to the station. Like, I mean, they say, "How would you like to come down lo the station with Well, I, for one, am going to go along. I mean, it's criminal, it's really criminal, Lhe way we don't appreciate Lhe fuzz. I think it's about time we railed on them, or telephoned them, or something, and told them exactly what we think of them. Give them a pat on the back. Everyone needs a little praise, a little lime oft for good behaviour, and so on. Tlie police have been good to me. As a reporter, they are al- ways helpful. The Mounlies are a lillle lough, it's true, but Lhey have the man upstairs to con- tend with. They have great dis- cipline in the RCMP. But if you're willing to tell, say, Uic truth, the whole Irulh and noth- ing bul Hie truth, the RCMP will tell you where to go. The city police are a horse of a different color. I like Ihe city police. They have to walk a beat, some of them, and that's rough, especially around Gait Gardens during Whoop-up Days. As a driver who has seen two of his loveu'est cars com- pletely wrecked, I admire the way Ihe police and cool. I And as a man with chronic flal feel, I feel like walking hand In hand with the cops. Stick with me, dear reader, and you'll wear Let's not forget how hard the police work to put their case i together, only to have il torn lo shreds by some lying, thiev- ing skunk who perjures his way out of court. I've seen it hap- pen a million limes. The policeman's lot is not a happy one! Open house during police week doesn't mean they're go- ing to unlock the cells and let everyone go free. No, il means you and me and (he guy next door can go down lo headquarters and see how the Canadian version of O'Hara and the FBI is put togelher. H's a great show and we can be proud of our forces, some ol Ihe best in the business. I guess I better sign off be- j fore I land up in the big house Bul before I say "jiggers, the I I'd like to thank, right I here in public where everyone can see, the guys who try to keep law and order and muf- flers on motorcycles. Keep smiling! And a special goodnight to the duty sergeant. He tells me a woman was telling him her boy got two years off for good behaviour and her neighbor says "Oh, I wish I had a son like Iliad" ENDS 46-YEAR CAREER Wilfred Hague, right, receives a set of luggage from his fellow workers on the occasion of his retirement from the Canadian Sugar Fac- tories Lid. plant at Picture Butte.

Socreds oppose 20 jurisdictions idea TABER (HNS) MLA Rob- ert Clark (SC former minister of education, has outlined the Social Credit party's position on the study done by Dr. Holdaway regard- ing examinations of non-in- structional positions, functions, and costs in school admini- strations in Alberla. The four point position: "We do not support the rec- ommendation Dial num- ber of school jurisdictions be reduced lo approximately 20. This could mean Ihe centraliza- tion of the present 185 school jurisdictions, a completely un- acceptable proposal. "Some amalgamations can be justified, hut should only be undertaken with Ihe approval of local boards, parents and lax- payers. However, such action across the province could well lead to the development of school dormitories in Ihe rural areas of Alberta, also unaccept- able. "This action would be a fur- ther step toward taking away almost completely any control parents have (as a prior right and responsibility) over their children's education. "The Social Credit caucus agrees with the recommenda- tion that Hie regional of the department of education be continued. We suggest this is one means of narrowing the gap between rural and urban edu- cational opportunity in Alberta. "Tiie Social Credit caucus supports the recommendation that Ihe Department of Educa- tion continue to give leader- ship in the development of cur- ricula and the organization of educational opportunities f o r physical disabilities. "Dr. Holdaway recommends that additional services, if need- ed, be encouraged in the field of special education we sup- port this recommendation. "Generally speaking, t h e work done by Dr. Holdaway is limely and a credit to edu- cational research in Alberta."
