Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta JIM MAYBIE Anti-shoplifting campaign launched Business Talk j,rtTHPTntti tt mP4iifii�t*ifnii"""i ii...TT.i>-u m CHOPLIFTING losses in the 0 U.S. have increased 221 per cent in the tost 10 years, according to latest FBI figures. Shortages in retail stores have climbed to $3% billion yearly. That is more than $8 million a day. "It should be considered our national embarrassment," says Howard Haimowitz, general manager of the operations division of the National Retail Merchants Association. The NRMA announced last week the kick-off of the first nationwide organized campaign against shoplifting ever to be conducted in the U.S. The campaign was developed by the NRMA and the International Newspaper Advertising Executive to inform and educate the community to the problems of shoplifting. More than 700 daily newspapers throughout the U.S. are expected to participate in the campaign. The program is basically one of educating the community concerning crime in the stores and its effects upon the lives of everyone. The cost of shoplifting and employee theft is borne by the general public. It most severely affects the poor and those of limited income. The U.S. newspapers have pledged editorial support and will run public service advertisements and feature stories on the problem of shoplifting. Radio and TV stations will be asked to co-operate by using spots and the services of disc Jockeys. The NRMA has prepared pamphlets and posters which are used to impress teenagers and their parents of the serious consequences of shoplifting. 'In Canada a person can be sentenced up to two years in jail for theft under $50 and up to 10 years for theft over $50. As the crime grows, penalties will likely also grow. But worse than a stiff fine or time in jail, is the criminal record one receives for shoplifting. The record doesn't specify "shoplifting." It simply states theft over or under $50. It doesn't say the stolen item was a 39-cent tube of lipstick, a loaf of bread or a tape recorder. Just theft over or under $50. A person caught shoplifting (another name for stealing) also has to go through the embarrassment of being photographed, fingerprinted appearing in court, and the resultant publicity. The stigma of being a thief is far worse than any fine. The NRMA has produced a 16mm color and sound film, Caught, which dramatically illustrates the consequences of being caught shoplifting. WARDS RENTALS Dlthe*, Coffee Urm, Punch B e w 11, Glatm, Tablet, Chairs, ate., ttc. PHONE 328.8775 It is designed to be shown to teenagers and adults, in schools, at civic and religious group meetings and libraries. Combatting shoplifting and staff thefts is a big job. It requires co-operation. It needs the help and co-operation of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, service clubs, school boards, city council, news media, police and individuals. A concerted effort is required to make everyone aware of this serious crime against society. It's late now but perhaps not too late to check the escalating rate and perhaps reduce it. A lot of people are going to have a lot of heartache if nothing is done to check shoplifting and staff thefts, through the penalties they will have to pay when caught. The new city council could get the ball rolling, with the co-operation of schools and school boards, by getting a full-scale anti-shoplifting program going in the schools, operated by the police. An example of how the crime is being treated can be taken from Monday's Wall Street Journal which devoted one-sixth of the front page and slightly less on an inside page to the problem. The headline states: Thou Shalt Not . . . Stores Find It's Not Easy to Stop Thieves - Pros or Amateurs; Security Devices Can Reduce Losses But Also Alienate Customers and Employees: A 'Mod Squad* Nails 1,000. More on shoplifting and staff thefts later. That's 'nough for now. Random thoughts Noticed how bartering is coming back again? You can buy almost anything these days if you have wheat or barley to trade. Of course you don't get your money's worth but you can at least trade it. A new product has been added as acceptable barter by one Lethbridge businessman. He's been advertising lately that you can get a new car from him for peanuts. I wonder what he'll do with all the peanuts after Halloween's over?    Have you noticed all the empty stores in downtown Lethbridge lately? It scares me.  * * Haven't heard anything from the city haU hierarchy lately on promises that a new hotel would be started in downtown Lethbridge this year. Sure am glad I didn't hold my breath waiting for the announcement. I can see a start being made on a decent-sized facility in three to five years but only time will tell, aye? I still wonder about all those boastful promises though.    I think it's about time we gave the Lethbridge MLAs something they could do for everyone in the area. How about dropping them a note asking that the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission be directed to establish an office in Lethbridge? One hundred per cent of the people in this area are involved with Alberta Health Care and the nearest rep is in Calgary. He's too busy up there to get around here any oftener than once every two years. Some people here are getting shafted because there's nobody to talk to. Ever try writing to a computer? * *  Almost threw out the family allowance cheque this month, Somebody changed the color from light brown to green, Looks more like money now, The cheques also carry a red maple leaf and a red bar from the national flag. Change in col or and design is to help make certain that they can only be cashed by the qualified recipient. * * � Some major developments, one for Lethbridge and one in/4% '90 106.00 Alcan 9%% '91 107.00 110.00 B.C.

The chartered banks cut their prime rate, the rate at which they loan money to their best customers, to 6V� from 6& per cent Wednesday. A spokesman for the Toronto Dominion Bank said the move was to stimulate loan demand for business expansion and thus improve the country's unemployment situation. While the move kindled some investor response it was not enough to offset the general downward trend of the market. During the week, the Toronto market's industrial index, considered a major indicator of market movement dropped 2.28 points to 162.22. At New York, the market plunged sharply lower for the third consecutive week in active trading. INDEX DOWN On the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, the composite index fell 3.08 points, closing at 167.46. Combined volume on the two ex changes was 3.83 million shares, compared with 4.04 mil-Lion last week. Volume at Toronto was 7.06 million shares, compared with 7.87 million last week. Monday, volume was the lightest in 17 months with only 1.21 million shares changing hands. At New York, the Dow Jones industrial average of 30 bine chip issues fell 22.48 points to 852.37. In the past two weeks the index has dropped more than 40 points. Volume at New York was 69.35 million shares, up from 61.67 million last week. Analysts said investor concern over how effective the second phase of President Nixon's economic policy will be continues to be the major dampening effect on the U.S. market. Gold issues provided the only bright spot on Canadian markets this week. GOLD PRICE UP A marked increase in trading and price of gold on international bullion markets pushed Canadian gold-producing issues higher this week. The Toronto gold index was up 1.28 points to 148.52. A dividend reduction by Fal-con bridge Nickel midway through the week confirmed investor concern over base Salesman of the Month MR.
