Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, May 22, 1973 B.C. DAYLIGHT ESCAPE "Prison guards lacked training NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. (CP) The two British Col- umbia penitentiary guards as- signed to check the cell of a prisoner who escaped Saturday were inexperienced and had no job training, an official of the union representing penitentiary guards said Monday. "They haven't even been throught the orientation course said Jacques Vegt, sec- retary-treasurer of the B.C. Pen Local. Bank robber John Emitte Mc- Cann, 25. made a daylight es- cape from the maximum secur- ity prison Saturday, leaving a lifelike dummy in Ms cell. The dummy, complete with hair from the prison barber shop, a papier mache head and shoes sewn on stuffed trousers, fool- ed the guards making a count. A Canada-wide alert had fail- ed to turn up any clues on the whereabouts of the escapee by Monday night. Police in ad- joining Washington State were also asked to be on the lookout for McCann, who was believed to be armed. Drug addiction to pr By WARREN E. LEAHY BOSTON (AP) ers say they have developed method to predict which teen- agers are likely to use mari- juana, which ones will go on to hard drugs and which ones will remain non-users. In a report from the depart- ment of psychiatry at Mas- sachusetts General Hospital, the researchers said today they analysed data from 2.222 junior- high and high-school students in the Boston area. In that computer analysis, drug use in 1971 was predicted from five non-drug-related fac- academic per- formance and cigarette smok- in 1969. The researchers said the analysis was 68-per_-cent accu- rate in predicting the non-drug users who went on to marijuana alone and 77-per-cent accurate showing which non-users went to both marijuana and hard drugs such as heroin, stimulants, depressants and hal- lucinogens. The data were also 72-per- cent accurate in predicting non-users eventually used any type of drug and 67-per- cent accurate in predicting new marijuana users went to hard drugs. The researchers said that in comparing data from non-users and these already using drugs at the beginning of the study in 1969, the computer was able to sort out the two groups with 81 per cent accuracy using only non-drug-related information. CONFER ON DRUGS The report was to be pre- sented today at the National Research Council-National Academy of Sciences meeting of the Committee on Problems of Drug Dependence held at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The five elements assessed in 1S89 were rebelliousness against rules and authorities as meas- ured by a questionnaire, ratings of obedience, grade average, cigarette smoking and unfavor- able attitudes toward cigarette smoking. The tendency toward rebellion and cigarette smoking in- creased progressively from the no-drug group to the marijuana- only group and was greatest with the hard-drug users, the report said. Better school marks, greater obedience and negative atti- tudes toward cigarette smoking were highest with the non-use group and decreased progres- sively toward the students who started drug use early. The study is part of a larger project supported by the Na- tional Institute of Mental Health and Massachusetts General Hospital. That project has stud- ied about 12.000 students each year for the last five years. Zambia faces By DAVE THOMAS LONDON (CP) Zambia's explanation for the killing last week of two Canadian girls at Victoria Falls has unusual im- portance because of the black state's outside dependence for its economic and military de- fence against Rhodesia. Having already accused Rho- desia of looking for an excuse to attack across the Zambezi River and now reliant on out- side aid to circumvent the closed frontier, Zambia's uncon- vincing claim that the tourists looked like enemy commandos is considered in diplomatic quarters here as a surprising risk to international sympathy. This, and the three-day period before the statement was an- nounced, has led to suspicions of a division within the govern- ment of President Kenneth Kaunda, long respected as one of the more responsible and moderate of African leaders. Troubled internally by tribal disagreement over plans for elections later this year under a new constitution and by a re- cent shake-up in the military hi- erarchy, Kaunda may have been urged by others in the cabinet to blame Rhodesian bel- ligerence for provoking the shooting incident. The alterna- tive would have been a straight apology and admission of error by his border guards. FEARS DAMAGE Kaunda is reported to have argued for such an admission, fearing damage to the credibility of Zambia's ear- lier statements that Rhodesian patrols have planted land mines on Zamibian territory which killed 12 persons. The apparently-contorted ex- planation for the deaths of the tourists could stimulate wari- ness about Zambia's denial Sun- day of reports that shots were fired on another group of sight- seers. The new shooting reports pre- ceded the arrival in Lusaka Monday of Kurt Waldheim, United Nations Secretary-Gen- eral, who is examining Zam- bia's need for UN aid, esti- mated at about million for the period until the end of 1974. With thousands of factory work- ers already laid off because of the export stoppage caused by closure of the 400-mile Rhode- sian border in January, Zambia needs bilateral as well as UN aid. Canada is one of the chief do- nors, having already committed million to a special Com- monwealth fund and loans worth S5 million for railway and dock construction which will al- low Zambia to ship its vital cop- per exports through Tanzania rather than Rhodesia. NEED MILITARY AID? Seme observers say the mili- tary need for world support may be even more important to Zambia than the economic ne- cessity. Premier Ian Smith of Rho- desia is reported to have said in a radio interview Sunday that plans had been made for Is- raeli-style raids across the river to hit at alleged terrorist camps. They were abandoned, he said, because Rhodesia lacks the international sympathy of the Jewish state. Loss by Zambia of its still- overwhelming command of world support might mean esca- lation of the border action into more than isolated sniping. Fair share TORONTO (CP) The On- tario Federation of Labor says husbands of working women should get the same pension and insurance benefits as wives of employed men. j The suggestion is contained in a federation brief urging the Ontario government to end age, sex and marital-status dis- crimination in pension and in- surance plans. The brief, presented to a pro- vincial group studying amend- ment of the Human Rights Code, suggests that common- law spouses and children of such alliances be eligible for the same fringe benefits. The federation said pension plans having optional or com- pulsory retirement ages must be the same for both sexes. Men's retirement age should be lowered to conform with that of women. rano BOARD AND BOARD In and out styled fence lends itself to exciting two tons effects.
