Indians Fail To Fully Use Land Criminals Hard To Rehabilitate Crime Conference Is Lere By STAN FRUET Herald Staff Writer Criminals are difficult people to rehabilitate, the Crime, Cor- rections and You conference was told Friday night. Justin Ciale, with the depart- ment of the solicitor general in Ottawa, told the conference at the University of Lethbridge, "Services that aren't doing airy good should be stopped. "We should be convinced the services are effective. We arc making a sincere effort to work towards a program. Shaking hands is nothing compared to rehabilitating a person. "Our present batting average in correction is 0.333. one-third go straight, one third go back formed to deal with the design and programs of maximum se- curity prisons in Canada.1' Alderman Vaughn Hembroff, representing the City of Leth- bridge, was asked, why on two occasions the John Howard So- ciety had been refused a grant. "Th.3 provincial government indicated it would not grant the John H o w a r d Society any money because it was not worthy of it." Aid. Hembroff siu'd. "Council felt if the gov- ernment denied it money why should we give it any. Volun- teer societies tend to use the government as a crutch. The John Howard Society must prove worthiness of existence." U of L president Dr. Sam Smith, asked if the university is generally concerned about existing problems, replied, "I a simple approach to the problem. We need tough wrestling with a tough problem. The conference we are all at- tending will determine how we will gel involved. The university has a role lo maintain the exisling order."

By RIC SWIIIART Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON Indian farm- ers are not taking full advan- tage of land at their disposal, H. A. (Bud) Olson, federal minister of agriculture, told about 180 delegates and ob- servers to the Indian Associa- tion of Alberta development conference. Mr. Olson said there are Indian farmers on acres of land in Canada, but only 565 are full-time farmers. He said Alberta Indians were using acres but were leasing about acres to non-Indians instead of worldng it themselves. The total land picture open to Indians in Canada, he said, is about two million acres for fanning and another one mil- lion acres for grazing which is not used at this time. Many Indian farmers are not able to adjusL to changes in agricultural technology and they do not have the equip- ment or facilities to change then- farming he said. "This change or adjustment with technology Is essential to keep up a good standard of agricul- Remanded Five Lethbridge youths who appeared in magistrate's court were charged with break, enter and theft, theft of gas, and at- tempting to steal gas.

Mr. Olson said the two main requirements for successful farming today are assets and management. "Good production is only one aspect the good farmer must decide what to produce and how best to do it. and work he said. "Many Indian farmers lack capital to apply and management and many more need more training. With these factors, many mere men could make their living farming." Mr. Olson said the Farm Credit Corporation was set up because there were not enough long-term loans available for many people to make a go of farming, but expressed disap- pointment the program was not being taken advantage c as much as he had expected. "Application rates acres Canada are down 50 per cent, he said. "Only 59 reserve farmers, in Alberta, had taken advan :age of the program in the firs four months of its establish ment. "We hope amendments to th FCC program will help mak capital resources for Indians more easily accessible." Mr. Olson told the delegate Canada will sell 700 millio bushels of all grains this year with barley up 300-400 per cen and significant increases wheat and rapessed.

Mr. Olson said the total wheat inventory was down 250- 300 million bushels from last year and Canada can sell all the barley the farmers are will- ing to deliver tlu's year. "For this reason the lift program will not again be followed this year." He told Blood Indian spokes- man Howard Beebee it is diffi- cult to get permits to sell sur- plus grains on Indian reserves. "We hope to ease restrictions but can't guarantee any special permits." Mr. Beebee was referring to seme instances when a man who had farming rights to some land and a permit to sell grain from that land died. The grain would then be stored, with surpluses building up. Mr. Olson said another per- son can't hold a permit to sell grain produced on a piece of land when it was owned by a previous permit holder. back." Mr. Ciale's comments were in response to a questin wheth- er he thought the solicitor-gen- eral's department is honestly involved with the social role. He was one of the resource personnel questioned p.t the opening session of the confer- ence, sponsored by the John Howard Society. The confer- ence continues today and Sun- day. Ken Crockett, chairman of the advisory committee on cor- rection for Alberta, said pro- fess in correction is possible only if the minister of the Crown is willing. "There are two basic princi- ples and Mr. Crockett said. "There is no pro- gress unless enthusiasm is administered by tile leaders in charge of programs. The at- torney general needs to dem- onstrate interest. Secondly, no government can go forth faster than enlightened public will allow or accept.

Department Of Industry Verge Of Coming An Alberta Progressive Con- servative Association meeting was told today that no other important area of provincial responsibi ity has received so little attention and planning as rural industrialization. Don Getty, Conservative MLA for Strathcona West, told :he planning session that the provincial department of indus- try and tourism has been con- sistently mismanaged "to the point that it is on the verge of coming apart." Mr. Getty said Alberta must ioin the battle for secondary in- dustry if residents hope to have he jobs, money and growth in .heir area. One of the factors that must be faced, he said, is that there are usually several sites which could be chosen by an industry Rail Hearing o The Canadian Transport Commission public hearing into CP Rail's application to dis- continue southern Alberta pas- senger service is still sched- uled for the Lethbridge provin- cial courthouse Monday, but lire date has not been confirm- ed. If the hearings are held as scheduled they will likely start at 10 a.m. "and they can pick the most attractive." He charged that the govern- ment has failed in this field, and Alberta is losing the battle for secondary industry, "if in fact we can be said to be in it at all." Tlie conference on rural in- dustrializa tion continues through Sunday at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. Closing the avenue apparent- ly caused few problems, at ieast as far as the city admin- istration was concerned. The city's engineering de partment reports no majo" problems, although some plion calls were received from res dents of the area who said the intended to bring then- com plaints to a public hearing o the matter Nov. 16. j Opposition to a millio 'hotel complex planned fo Shoppers' World has alread been voiced by some citizen because the developer h a asked that 4th Ave. be closed. A hearing Oct. 5 on the re zoning of the site brought ou some local criticisn, of th proposal, although that meet ing was intended to deal only with rezoning, rather than trsi fie problems. Traffic studies done both be- fore and during the closure wil be submitted to city council a the Nov. 16 hearing. Prelimi nary reports, most of them in dicating few problems woulc be encountered if the avenue were closed, have already been presented and are available to the public. Art Batty, president of Shop pers' World Ltd., says a deci- sion on going ahead with dem- olition of the roof of the ole Town and Country food store, site of the proposed 12-storey hotel, will be made after the city decides whether to close 4th Ave. A spokesman for Shoppers' World has told city council he could not say what the reaction of the hotel's operating chain might be if the avenue were not closed.

A proposal by the city last month would see this increased to S3.25, although this would likely be done in stages over a period of IS to 24 months. Increases for all users, In- clmling industrial and commer- cial, have been discussed in re- cent months as a means of helping pay for the secondary sewage treatment plant order- ed by the provincial govern- ment. The revisions to the sewer bylaw have not been com- pleted. Mayor Anderson, who will chair Monday's meeting, has said the method adopted for paying for the plant will de- pend largely on further pro- vincial or federal aid and on the briefs presented at the meeting. Submissions Monday will be limited to 15 minutes discus- sion after the mayor has pre- sented them to the meeting. Background information con- cerning the building of the plant and the impact on the community will be presented. Studies by the city's enginser- neers will illustrate the reason- ing staff and consulting engi. eers will illustrate the ng behind the proposed changes in the sewer bylaw and service charge. MOVING?
