Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 _ THE IITHBRIDGI HKAID Monday, October Beets Nearly Done Aided by ideal weather con- ditions over the past two weeks, the southern Alberta sugar beet harvest is about 90 per cent complete, and fast drawing to a close. Officials of Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd. in Lethbridge, say they are very pleased with the harvest's progress in recent days, and deliveries to receiv- ing stations are dwindling, in- dicating some farmers are now finished. About the only catch in the entire harvest was a severe freezing Oct. 7, which dam- aged the sugar quality of the beets to some degree, and is still impairing storage condi- tions. The t e n t a t i v e completion date for harvest is Oct.' 31. There were acres of sugar beets grown in southern Alberta this year. Nov. 9 Meet Not Really For Public A public meeting on sewage service charges tentatively scheduled for Nov. 9 in the Yates Memorial Centre, will be structured to allow a limited number of representations, Ma- yor Andy Anderson said recent-. iy- It was not the city's inten- tion, he said, to make the meet- ing into a public forum on'the whole issue of pollution control. It would be limited primarily to a discussion between the city and representatives Of industry on sewage rates, he said. A CITY ALDERMAN becomes a shareholder in a junior achievement business as Clair Forestall, left, member of Power Enterprises, a Junior Achievement of Southern Alberta Lethbridge company, sells the first share to Alderman C. W. Chichester. The program was set up in Lethbridge last week when four sponsoring firms and advisers initiated four mini-companies to be run by high school students in the city. The share Mr. Chichester bought sells for and only one shore can be purchased by an indi- vidual. The money gathered by the sale of shares will give the mini-companies the initial capital needed to start manufacture of products which will then be marketed. Variety Of Regulations Govern Police Force The recent dismissal of Con- stable Michael A. Clanfield, president of the Lethbridge City Police Association, has spark- ed discussion on rules and regulations of the police force. Constable Clanfield was tired Oct. 14 for alleged violations of regulations. The Board of Police Com- missioners said the constable held a liquor licence and was involved in business, including a vending machines operation in Lethbridge and a hotel in Grtussy Lake. The board said his involvement was contrary to regulations. An appeal on the dismissal has been tiled by the police as- sociation. Part of the rules and regula- tions, some condensed, read as follows: No person shall bs retained in the force; who holds any other employment, without the writ- ten permission of the chief of police or who resides at any premises where the spouse or any member of the family keeps a shop or carries on any like business; who resides out- side the corporate limits of the city of Lethbridge; who holds, or any member of the im- mediate family holds a liquor licence, or licence to operate a place of public entertainment; whose spouse, without the con sent of the Board of Police Commissioners, keeps a shop or carries on any like business in the city of Lethbridge. The following are expressly prohibited in the rules and reg- ulations. Wearing any political or fraternal badge, button, pin Pupils Reconsider A AS Membership "Think Together' Theme For Conference On Crime Crime, Correction and is the'name of a major public conference scheduled for Leth- bridge Nov. 6 to 8. The conference has been or- ganized by the Lethbridge branch of the John Howard So- ciety, in co-operation with the Canadian Corrections Associa- Socred Comeback Is Seen Federally Lethbridge MLA Jack Lan- deryou says former Alberta premier E. C. Manning will be a good addition to the senate, but "it would have been much better if he'd initiated a new federal party." Mr. Manning was one of 10 politicians and party workers, three of them non-Liberals, named recently to the Upper House by Prime Minister Tru- deau. A petition circulated in cen- tral Alberta prior to his appoint- ment had calkd for the former premier to enter federal poli- who has tics. Mr. Landeryou, backed a federal Creditiste move to expand beyond its Quebec strength, said the Cre- ch'tistes would probably have joined up with any party Mr. Manning established. "I'd back him 100 per cent." The Social Credit MLA sug- gested, however, that Mr. Man- ning would not consider leader- ship of a new party because of his age. Mr. Manning is 62. Mr. Landeryou, who at 65 has decided not to contest the next provincial election, said Social Credit'could reach na- tional proportions through mer- gers with other parties. Socreds and Progressive Con- servatives in Saskatchewan, neither of whom has represen- tation in the legislature, have indicated they will join up. The resultant party "could develop into a federal Mr. Landeryou said. Tie-ins between the Alberta Liberals and Socreds were sug- gested earlier this year when inter-party talks were held on the sharing of some candidates. Jack Lowery of Calgary resign- ed as Liberal leader when party members rejected the idea. Mr, Lander you contended "someone" will take on the job of promoting Social Credit back into its former place as a fed- eral party. tion, the City of Lethbridge and federal and provincial legal de- partments. r Most sessions will be held at the University of Lethbridge. Registration fee, exclusive of meals, is Keynote and. major speaker throughout the. conference will be Dr. E. Preston Sharpe, gen- eral secretary of the American Corrections Association. Alberta Attorney-General Ed- gar Gerhart also speak to the conference.. The purpose of the 'meeting is to provide delegates- with op- portunities to think together about crime, to set priorities for change and to -explore strategies to bring about change in the crime rate and in correctional methods. Many young people will at- tend, and a number of the speakers and resource person- nel are young people, The conference prospectus says one of its goals is "plain talk about real issues between the expert and the layman, the professional and .the volun- teer." It adds: "There is little ad- vantage to law enforcement of- ficers, government ad- ministrators, students -and citi- zens, who will attend this con- ference, if realities are dodged and communication confined to the exchange of banalities." Both printed information and local and provincial resource personnel experts in crime correction, social development and former, prisoners will be available throughout the con- ference to offer individual an- swers to their particular ques- tions. Conference organizers hope individual discussions will de- velop, as delegates meet pri- vately with one or two .resource people as well as- larger group discussions already par- tially organized. An unstructured approach has Been used for the confer- ence to foster the direct com- munication goal it has set. A report from all discussions will .be prepared following the conference, including both dis- cussion group material; and any resolutions the delegates ap- prove. The conference opens Fri- day, Nov. 6 with a tour of the LetSibridge provincial jail form 1 to 4 p.m. That evening the problem of correction will be discussed by a number of speakers, and an informal get-together will be held with Dr. Sharp. Nov. 7 Dr. Sharp will again address the .conference .and number of group sessions wil be.held with resource people and delegates meeting in in- dividual university rooms. In the evening, Attorney- General Gerhart will face a "nanel of including Mrs. Jean Block, a city busi- nesswoman; Peter Letkemann, a sociology professor and crim- inologist at the U of L; Jim Wilson, a Letbbridge Herald re- porter; plus a student and an ex-convict. Nov. 8 discussion groups wil continue and Dr. Preston wil make another short address Conference achievements ant discussion group recommenda- tions will te analysed by dale- gates and invited media groups.

Shown above from left are Wayne Ruggles Lethbridge Community' Col- lege students will hold a spe- cial cpen meeting Wednesday to discuss whether to rejoin the Alberta As- sociation of Students. Jim Draginda, president of the AAS will attend the meet- ing to explain the purposes ar.d goals of the association, and LCC students will make their decision through a referendum the following day. The .college withdrew, from the. association .last year, ac- cusing it of being oriented too heavily toward Alberta univer- sities, and not enough to other post-secondary education insti- tutions. They also said it was "too concerned with social and world problems, and not with the problems of the individual stu- dent." The AAS membership in- cludes universities, colleges, technical schools and nursing schools. The 'college sent two stu- dents, Carol Turman and Judi Walker to the AAS conference near Edmonton, over the Thanksgiving weekend, and both returned with a favorable impression. Most association resolutions at the conference did empha- size student life, they said, and tended to ignore the broader issues it often bogs down in. The two students are recom- mending the college join the AAS again. The LOG student newspaper, The Endeavor this week de- voted almost, a full page to AAS comment and reports, primarily in support of stu- dents joining the association. Social Security Man In Alta.
