Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ Tllf relay Novrmbcr ?7. 1971--------- CouvRiilion variety, thai is Ottawa wants the business At Pi opt le looks ca'ion. new 'pan completed, will run parallel to the nd New Ion- Gold Star Memorial bridge linking Groton don. Conn., that is, not England. OTTAWA (CP) Convention! business is big business and the Ottawa area, aided by its role as nation's capital, wants more. The 5.5 million visitors here in spent million and Can- ada's Capital Visitors and Con- vention Bureau Inc., in its sec- ond year, is drivinq for a reve- nue figure of SKKI million in 1972. So far, campaign support in- cludes from the City of Ottawa, from Ilic On- tario department of tourism and information and from the National Capital Commis- sion, the federal agency respon- sible for federal planning and operations in the capital area. The bureau is working with tourist councils on the Rideau waterway as far west as Kings- ton for seasonal tourist drives. The average tourist is wel- come, spending up to the I bureau reckons. Many of the at- tractions that draw them are federal ones, from Parliament to the changing of the guard ceremonies every summer. But conrentioners spend more, up to Tire bureau letter soliciting membership from 1.500 area or- ganizations says at one point that support is warranted "for reasons over and above any ma- terial advantages." The bureau believes ''that it is important for more Canadi- ans to see and enjoy their capi- tal city because it will make them better Canadians. those from other lands who visit us will be able to understand what it means to be a Cana- dian." Tlie visitor and convention dollar apparently breaks down Ihis way: Food 34 per cent, ac- commodation 27 per cent, auto, ya.s and repairs 13 per cent, gifts and entertainment 22 per cent and other four per cent. For 1072, the bureau says one large uaspecified new conven- tion will bring ill all by itself. The hotel business was ap 11 per cent for the first seven months of this year and two new hotels will be operating next year when GO new conven- tions are expected. Conventions are getting big- ger. So far this year, average attendance has been 390 persons but it could go to 500 next year. Bv KEVIN COONT.Y psychiatric help and guidance NEW'YORK It is i but this is doubted called "maxi-maxi" and it is by some. likely to be the first major change in New York state's prison fvEtem since the Attica rebellion' in September in which 43 people died. Maxi-maxi stands for maxi- mum-maximum security prison and study groups are combing tiie state to find a location where the idea could be con- verted into stone and iron. Gerald Houlihan, a spokes- man for the department of correction, said the plan called for maximum security and maximum rehabilitative pro- crams for tr.e "hardened, as- saultive-type prisoner who can- not follow" rules either outside or inside a prison." He said the first maxi-maxi facility would probably house some '600 men out of the state's prison population of Houlihan emphasized that the increased security would be 1 coupled with a "stepped-up edu- cational program and heavy SON LIVING JAMAICA" 5 (FILM PRESENTATION) Saturday, December llth, 1971 YATES P.M.

Others have expressed fear i that the selection of prisoners i for maxi-maxi might be made I on political grounds, with poten- i tial leaders being segregated from the general prison popula- tion. Russell G. Oswald, the state commissioner o f correction, said when he first made maxi- maxi public mat physical ag- gressiveness and not political activity would determine who goes to maxi-maxi. Prison officials say the plan had been under consideration since the beginning of 1971, but there is no doubt that it got a considerable push from the At- tica tragedy. DIFFERENT APPROACH A group of Democratic state legislature members, including Assemblyman Arthur 0. Eve, who acted as a go-between dur- ing the Attica uprising, has called for a different approach to the state's prison problem. The group called on Gov. Nel- son A. Rockefeller to implement 18 prison reforms that included a proposal which would do away with the state's current maxi- mum-security prisons. Other ideas offered by the group included the paying of the state's minimum wage to pris- oners who work, and conjugal visits. They also suggested the appointment of an ombudsman to hear prisoners' complaints. Commissioner Oswald has said that following the establish- ment of a maxi-maxi facility, he hopes to start minimum- and moderate-security institutions for prisoners further along the wav to rehabilitation.

The decision was prompted by the province's Beverage Containers Act which goes into effect Jan. 1. The act will pro- hibit the sale of non-returnable soft drink containers, glass or metal, and require that all con- tainers be refundable. Association president Car] Jcpson said his organization will continue to press for changes in the legislation be- cause disposal of the returned containers will involve tremen- dous expense for soft dnnk pro- ducers.
