(AP) Water at the western energy company owned coal mining town of Colstrip is now safe to drink, a company official says. Martin White said one source of water is a deep well from which water emerges at high temperatures but then is cooled in a settling pond, evidently favored by water fowl. Health authorities cor- rected the problem of water contamination by the fecal matter from ducks by adding chloride to the pond.

PAT D BOB Red DOUG S West PAUL Westminster RON MICHAEL Red SEAN DOUG L MRS E w. s. Grande W minister attacked OTTAWA (CP) Environ- ment Minister Jeanne Sauve was criticized Tuesday for saying Canadians have "the luxury of time" to study and deal with environmental problems. Doug Miller of Ottawa, a co- ordinator for Pollution Probe, said it is disappointing the country's new environment minister isn't an aggressive spokesman for environmental causes. Earlier, Mrs. in a speech prepared for the Air Pollution Control Association, said the luxury of time in many areas allows for prudent and less costly steps to pre- vent pollution rather than drastic and expensive ones. Mr. Miller said in an inter- view that Mrs. Sauve, who be-. came environment minister following the July 8 federal election, was lulling the public into a false sense of security.. With a high level of in- dustrial activity, urban pollution, and contaminated lakes and rivers, it is foolhardy to suggest drastic action isn't needed, he said. Immediate action is needed to clean up the Ottawa River, a partial boundary between Ontario and Quebec, he said. The river is a federal respon- sibility but has been con- taminated because municipalities are dumping raw sewage into it. Morever, pollution, like in- flation and energy shortages, is a world-wide problem and Canada has to contribute its utmost toward solving it, he said.' EDMONTON (CP) The number of prisoners drifting back into crime after leaving jail could be reduced if there was better co-operation between the police and parole officers, Jean-Paul Gilbert, chairman of the national joint committee of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and Federal Correctional Ser- vices, says Mr. Gilbert, speaking at a two day workshop sponsored by the joint committee, said a "realistic" approach must be taken to parolees. "In this (prairie) region we have parolees and the parole board officers are less than 100 to look after treat- ment and he said. If the parole officers were to provide more information to the police about their charges, police could keep a watch for the parolee without trying to "catch" him doing something illegal. "We don't want to give the impression, however, that we want the parole officers to become informers or that we want police to end up harrass- fire CANORA, Sask.

Rather, they -could co- operate so that the offender could gain maximum benefit from both organizations. PROTECT PAROLEE Mr. Gilbert said the police could help reconcile the offender with social norms, to protect him, if necessary, from the influence of former friends, to show discretion and tact and help-the offender relate to authority. The parole board would benefit with police providing supplementary information essential for the selection of eligible prisoners for all types of parole; the parolees would be better supervised and there would be a more concerted attempt at rehabilitation Mr. Gilbert emphasized that this "new approach" for both police and parole board would require police to attain a better understanding of the psychological factors govern- ing human behavior "And the staff of the National Correctional Ser- vices must try to learn more about policemen's work and the risks it involves."
