W. A. D. Burns, admissions officer at the U of A, said there is "considerable sympathy" at the university for a solution. The emergence of Grant McEwan Community College in Edmonton has emphasized the need f6r a solution. "McEwan College is in much the same boat as LCC, and we have it right on our own door- atiC Mr. Burns. "We have to look at the graduates of McEwan and see if they could transfer Mr. Burns said neither col- lege has an affiliation agree- ment with a university and therefore, universities are un- certain about the quality of teaching staff and the content of courses being taught. He said he is optimistic that the problem will be solved. "I think something is coming in the near future when LCC students will be able to trans- fer to universities the time is right and I think everyone is anxious to find the answer."

IGranted, that in continually dealing with the health of our community, we may seem to be oversolititous about this subject. But if you could see the sad and painful results of (so often) disregard- ed symtoms that have been clear warning signs of disease the pain, sickness, loss of time and even loss of life for which irresponsibility has been the cause our feelinp on this subject would imme- diately make a great deal more sense.

He said the primary purpose for the change was to eliminate the idea that on one hand the attorney-general's department was working to put persons in jail and with the other, at- tempting to take them out. He refused the Social Credit argument by saying 'all of the functions have the one objec- tive of reducing crime." The attorney-general said there are three steps which must be followed for reducing crime. The first step is doing all that can be done to prevent a person from committing a crime in the first place. This step should function in the schools and at home. The second step consists 'of bringing the person who has committed a crime before the court. The various law enforc- ing agencies fulfill this step. The final step of preventing the person from committing another criminal act is the function of rehabilitation. The correctional service branch en- courages rehabilitation. Mr. Leitch said he could see no conflict within the three steps and maximum effect could be achieved if they were carried out within the same de- partment. Mervin Leitch, the new attor- ney-general of Alberta said he expected to see changes made in the controversial Police Act He told the 19th Law Enforce- ment Co-ordination Conference dinner Thursday he did not ex pect to see the changes made in the near future, or until the views of all those affected ha( been studied. Mr. Leitch said the changes would probably not come be- fore 1973. He said he felt the extended time period would give the people time to form better-informed critical views about Ihe act and its effects. Press criticized "The news media are the architects of their own misfor- tune." So said inspector T. S. Ven- ner of the Edmonton RCMP. He told 100 delegates of the 19th Annual Law Enforcement Coordination Conference at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel here that law enforcement officers all too often sit back and blame the press for deliberate, distort ed news series, when they should do more to educate the media and use their power in a positive way. He said, "There is not any good excuse for a distorted news story." He urged the law enforce- ment officers to co-operate with the press whenever possible and make the press aware of why some information cannot be released at a time con- venient to them. Inspector Venner said he had seen many stories which had been deliberately distorted and twisted and could accept no ex- cuse for such reporting. "We should accept no excuses for deliberately distorted stories, but we should go out of our way to encourage good, factual he said, "and we should co-operate whenever possible."

Phono 327-1056 New attorney-general Leitch favors rehabilitation Alberta Attorney General Hervin Leitch told the 19th jaw Enforcement Co-ordina- ion Conference Thursday night ic was "generally in favor of rehabilitation over punish- ment." He said the previous system adopted "has not worked well and must change." In. his first appearance be- fore a gathering of law enforce- ment officers in his new posi- tion, he said he was not sure rehabilitation was the right ;tep, but felt it was one which should be tried. He said the rehabilitative as- pect of the legal system should start right alter a crime is committed and should be in- cluded in the questioning of an accused person, in his treat- ment while under arrest, dur- ng trial and in prison. Mr. Leitch said there had >een many rehabilitative steps :aken on a federal level which include the formation of com- mittees of inmates to hold dis- cussions with prison officials, visits with families, access to newspapers, radios and televi- sions, pay for work done in prison, the use names rath- ?r than numbers as identifica- tion and the changing of prison garb from drab uniforms to more-colorful clothing. He told the dinner gathering it is no longer sufficient just to apprehend and punish. Mr. Leitch said the members of his department haft been in- structed to prepare reports and recommend new programs. "Any decisions will be based on these reports and rec- ommendations, but I cannot say what they will be or what di- rections they will he said.
