A public forum, The Peo- ple's Laws, to be held Tuesday in the Yates Memorial Centre, will provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions of representatives of the Leth- bridge Bar Association-on how the legal system operates. Admission will be free. The forum is being sponsored the Lethbridge Bar Association and the Canadian Bar Associa- tion, Alberta sub-section, and by The Lethbridge Herald. The bar association is contributing the professional services and the newspaper the accommoda- tion and promotion.

Another acres of corn was grown in, southern Al- berta this year under contract with Federal Grains Ltd. The interest in growing corn has been enhanced by a pro- posal to build a liquor distillery in Lethbridge.. Construction of the proposed million distillery and the project hinges on whether or not the federal government gives approval to a grant un- der the regional incentives pro- gram.

In addition, crimes are class fled as indictable or non-in dictable offences, the latter be- ing offences punishable on sum mary conviction. Indictable offences are con sidered more serious than sum mary conviction offences an generally the procedure fo handling them is more com plicated. Summary conviction matters are less serious and are com monly referred to as "quas criminal" offences; Until P a r 1 i a ment aetuall occupies a particular field Security Increased At Yates Security measures at th Yates Memorial Centre will increased following the theft a painting in August.

S. UPSTAIRS ON THE StCOND FLOOR PHONE 327-4623 criminal law, a province may enact provincial legislation im- posing punishments in that field, as well as for offences under its own provincial stat- utes. These are the summary con- viction matters. The provinces generally adopt the summary conviction procedure set out in the Criminal Code of Canada. To indict means simply to bring a formal accusation against, or to charge with an offence or crime. The procedure, besides being more complicated, is different in that the punishment is usual- ly stated with the crime and the accused, if found guilty, does not pay court costs. The, term "summary pro- ceedings" stems from the word one meaning for which is "direct and prompt." Summary conviction metiers are within me exclusive juris- diction of the magistrate's court and the procedure is re- latively quick. The maximum penalty is only or six months in jail, or both. If frwrf guilty, the defendant mav be ordered to pay court costs. Taking possession of mari- juana as a sample case may illustrate some of the basic dif- ferences in the two procedures. The charge used to be con- sidered serious enough that it was treated as an indictable of- fence. The law has been changed and the Crown, at its election, may proceed as an in- dictable offence or a summary conviction offence. Let's assume the Crown has decided to proceed by way of summary conviction offence. The accused appears hi mag- istrate's court and the matter is tried entirely at that level, by the magistrate alone. The case would reach a high- er court only if an appeal were taken. If the Crown, which has the option in this case, had de- cided to proceed by way of in- dictable offence a more com- plex procedure is followed. When the accused appears in magistrate's court he is given the choice of how he wants the case tried. He "elects" trial by magistrate, judge alone or judge and jury. There are exceptions to this procedure. In certain very se- rious indictable offences: such as rape, murder' or treason there is no election. Following preliminary hearing a trial must be held in Supreme, Court. If the person charged with possession of marijuana elects trial by magistrate, a sum- mary trial is held forthwith in that court. If the accused elects trial by judge alone or judge and jury the trial must be heard in a higher court. The magistrate then holds a preliminary hearing and, if he decides there is enough evi- dence to warrant a prima facie case, the accused-is. committed for trial at the next'court of competent jurisdiction. A trial by judge alone could be heard in the Supreme Court .of Alberta, but- it is usually heard in speedy trial at the District Court level. There are no juries in the District Court. Trial by judge and jury must be held in the trial division of the Supreme Court of Alberta. The trial is then held in whichever court is necessary and a decision made. If the decision is appealed all the evidence heard at trial is delivered to the appellate divi- sion of the Supreme Court of Alberta. Any further .appeal must be made to the Supreme Court of Canada. This is a brief outline of the two ways a possession of mari- juana charge may be handled in Alberta courts. The forum in the Yates Cen- tre Tuesday is designed to help clarify legal procedures such as those outlined. It nil! also delve into other areas. Panel members will deal with four specific topics- criminal law, domestic rela- tions, commercial law and es- tates. Questions from the audience will be invited and as many will be answered as time al- lows. Ballet Fun To See But Lacks Polish By MARGARET LUCKHURST Stiff Writer As native Manitoban I am well aware Uiat other prov inces regard our two major ex ports to he the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and rotten weather. The Contemporary Dancers of Winnipeg who performed at the Yates Memorial Centre Tuesday evening for the first time in this city may be soon added to this brief list. It will depend on one's sensitivity to the dance whether or not this addition will be regarded as a positive or'a negative attribute. The Contemporary Dancers is a small company organized six years ago by Rachel Board Named In Police Wage Talks Representatives on an ar- bitration board to settle the contract dispute between the Lethbridge Police Association and the Lethbridge Police Com- mission have been named. The police association, rep- resenting 51, members of the jolice force who are working without a 1970 contract, has named K. T. G. McBain of Cal- gary and Norman Koch of Ed- monton to the board. Mr. McBain is a lawyer; Mr. Koch is a member of the Ed- monton police force and presi- dent of the Alberta Federation of Police Associations. The police commission has named Dr. C. D. Stewart, presi- dent .of the Lethbridge Com- munity College and Calgary lawyer William B. Gill. The arbitration board chair- man has not been chosen and no date has been set for the start of proceedings. Browne, fallen away bal- lerina of the RWB who fslt she wanted to update ballet by combining the classical with modern dance. To date her attempt has been .both acclaimed and panned. At the present stage of their slow development they are fun to watch if you don't take them too seriously. Miss Browne, who the program states, "saw a vast potential for dance theatre which could be both serious and entertain- has perhaps settled for being merely entertaining. Cer- tainly the "serious potential" is a long way from being at- tained. The first three items on the program were choreographed by Miss Browne. To a group of Odetta's soigs she put a set of rock movements which were swingy and-fun, thanks to the vital dancing of Laura Willows. Indeed this talented dancer can be credited for giving the program whatever professional it achieved. Anerca, a dance about Eski- mo life, was ragged and repeti- tive. It didn't quite get across the tragedy and aloneness of the Eskimo in his fight for whatever life he is prepared to settle for, against so many odds. Visions Fugitives, choreo- graphed by Nenad Lhotka, former director of the RWB, was the little story of "Joy" who is set upon by pessimism and ultimately crucified. Here again, Laura Willows danced the role of Joy with ex- actly the right force and feel- ing; it was hard to watch her persecutors when she was on stage. The final number, Turn in, Turn out, Turn on. (or Bach is beautiful) .succeeded remark- ably well as a program closer. It allowed lots of leeway for a combination of rock-romp and classical finesse. It was top long, but the kids in the audi- ence loved it. Always a drawback to danc- ers is having to perform to taped recordings. Perhaps on a return visit the Contemporary Dancers may acquire the sup- port of a local musical group.
