30 WE IETBBR1DGE HERAID Saturday, November 7, 1970 Hiring More Policemen Best Deterrent To Crime WINNIPEG (CP) Capital punishment is more immoral than Hie actual slaying by a murderer, in Hie view ot Hcv. Tom James, national presi- dent of the Canadian Correc- tional Chaplains Association. Mr. James, an Anglican minister, in an interview called capital punishment "plan n c d and cold-blooded whereas most mur- ders were "crimes of pas- sion." (Canada is in a Five-year trial period where death sent- ences for murder are handed down only in convictions in- volving deaths of policemen or prison guards oil iiuty. There has not been an execu- tion in Canada since 1862.) Mr. James, provincial chap- lain for correctional institu- tions in Manitoba, said most murderers don't plan I heir crimes. "They're so instantaneous the killers don't stop to think whether or not they ultimately may have to lace capital pun- ishment. "The morality of an act de- pends upon the intention of I he person who commits it, and most of po- only to pro- tect themselves. A roan who shoots and wounds or shoots and misses is not essentially different from the man who shoots and kills. So why should we hang that person because he The Brockville, Out., native has been involved in corree- FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH AT TWO LOCATIONS Minister, REV. G. R. EASTER, B.A., B.Th.

"If capital punishment is to be a deterrent, then the maxi- mum number of people must witness Mr. James said. "Therefore, if we're going to be logical, it should be compulsory for every poten- tial killer to Witness the exe- cuUor in order to be deterred from it." He maintained that every member of society is a poten- tial killer and suggested, therefore, that executions Church of the Nazdrene 9lh Ave. and I6lh St. S. -Phone 327-8827 REV. R. 'G.

"And I'm sure lire public would be revolted at my suggestion, let alone seeing Author of the book, A New Look at the Offender and Phi- losophy, Theology and the Correctional Process, Mr. James also recommended close study of the effects of corporal punishment. "The purpose of any form of punishment is to change the person for the he said. "I find it hard to believe that anybody can be beaten into goodness." The clergyman stressed that society seldom questions whether corporal punishment as a deterrent works: "The only thing punishment does is to make society feel justi- fied." ODDS ON CRIMINAL Mr. James recommended hiring additional policemen across Canada, emphasizing that the "certainty of getting caught is the most powerful deterrent." "But the public is very nig- gardly in providing more ade- quate police protection" de- spite what he called an indica- tion that the criminal has a three-to-ono chance of escape. But tlie ones that are caught and sent to prison find life frustrating, he said, as does he himself when visiting the inmates. Outside communica- tion for prisoners is generally limited to two letters and one visit each week. Concern about Ms family and future in society leads to "incredible frustration" for convicts, the minister said, -and sometimes leads the per- son to live in a world of fan- tasy. These dreams were quickly shattered by the reali- ties of the world when the in- mate left jail. "Many of these people have been allowed to get to the point they are at now without having had the kind of help that would have prevented them getting to that Mr. James said. "Why aren't we out where the problems Women To Get Larger Role In Church Liturgy VATICAN CITY (AP) Vati- can sources said this week Pope Paul will' soon issue new directives giving women a larger role in the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church. They gave BO details. K o m e 's conservative daily newspaper 11 Tempo said It had seen the directives and ridiculed them in an article called "The Hostesses of the Church." H Tempo, which for years has reflected the views of conserva- tive members of the Vatican Curia, said the new rules rail allow women "to direct singing and to play the organ or other instruments during the mass. Women would also be used in churches "to receive the faithful and guide them to their seats." "Certainly the selection of these 'hostesses' of the church must be very careful because it, is obvious that a pretty girl in a miniskirt could attract the mas- culine faithful while an ugly old woman could drive them away, perhaps forever. But this is not said in the new rules. Sex Information For RC Students BRUSSELS (AP) The biggest Roman Catholic uni- versity in the world is dis- tributing to its freshmen a booklet on with birth-control advice. It was written by a group of professors, priests and students of Louvain Univer- sity whose student popula- tion is nearing 30.000. The authors said the num- ber of pregnancies was ris- ing among the unmarried girl students.
