Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueidoy, Moy 16, 197} THI IETH8RIDOE HERA1D 3 POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD We have now, so to speak, broken into and entered "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 to the station with Well, I, for one, am going to go along. I mean, it's criminal, it's really criminal, the way we don't appreciate the fuzz. j I think it's about time wej called 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 time off for good behaviour, and so on. The police have been good to me. As a reporter, they we al- ways helpful. The Mounties are a little tough, it's true, but they have the man upstairs to con- tend with. They have great dis- cipline in the RCMP. But if p you're willing to tell, say, the I truth, the whole truth and noth-' ing but the truth, the RCMP will tell you where to go. The city police are a horse of a different color. I like the 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 loveliest cars com- pletely wrecked, I admire the way the police and cool. And as a man with chronic flat feet, I feel like walking hand In hand with the cops Stick with me, dear reader, and you'll wear handcuffs. Let's not forget how hard the police work to put their case together, only to have it torn to shreds by some lying, ing skunk who perjures his way out of court. I've seen it hap- pen a million times. 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, it means you and me and the guy next door can go down to headquarters and see how the Canadian version of O'Hara and the FBI is put togethei It's a great show and we can be proud of our forces, some of the best in the business. I guess I better sign off be-1 fore I land up in the big house. But before I say "jiggers, the I'd like to thank, right 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 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 ltd. 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 Alberta. The four point position: "We do not support the rec- ommendartion that num- ber of school jurisdictions be reduced to approximately 20. This could mean the centraliza- tion of the present 185 school jurisdictions, a completely un- acceptable proposal. "Some amalgamations can be justified, hut should only be undertaken with the approval of local boards, parents and tax- payers. However, such action across the province could well lead to the development of school dormitories in the 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 the regional office 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. "The Social Credit caucus supports the recommendation that the Department of Educa- tion continue to give leader- ship in the development of cur- ricula and the organization of educational opportunities for 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, the work done by Dr. Holdaway is timely and a credit to edu- cational research in Alberta."
