Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Drugs Blamed For Hike In Jail Suicide Bids II, 1970 THI ItTHMNDOl HMAID CALGARY (CP) Fred win, superintendent of Alberta Correctional Institutes, blames drugs for a substantial increase in the number of suicide at- tempts at provincial jails. Mr. Oswin said in an inter- view that the number of such attempts rose to 17 in 1969-70 from two in 1968-69. "The cause of the increase is obvious. Some of tlic inmates get pretty depressed when they have to live without narcotics." Mr. Oswin said eight male and foui' female prisoners at Port Saskatchewan Jail north- east of Edmonton attempted suicide in the 1969-70 periods compared with one attempt in the previous term. At Belmont Institute there was an increase of three, and at Lethbridge the number rose by two. ALARMING INCREASE Mr. Oswin said there has also been an alarming increase in the number of cases of self-in- flicted injuries such as slash- ing of wrists. There were 24 cases of this nature in 1969-70 compared with nine in the previous 12- month period. Mr. Oswin said self-inflicted injuries are not regarded as "real and true" attempts to commit suicide. There had been no "success- ful" suicide attempts in Alber- ta jails for about five years al- though on occasion jail guards had to rush into cells to stop such attempts. Craig Reid of Calgary, ex- Your NEW Authorized Dealer for JEEP TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S. Phone 327-1418 ecutive director of the John Howard Society of Alberta, said the increase is due to a "dramatic" rise in the number of soft drug cases in the prov- ince. Mr. Reid said for many young drug offenders it's a traumatic experience to be locked up in old institutions such as Fort Saskatchewan or Lethbridge. The increase m attempted suicides among young people pointed up an urgent need for special treatment facilities. Cyprus Sides Far Apart UNITED NATIONS (CP) The.leaders of the Greek.and Turkish communities on Telephone Companies In Dispute EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Govern in e n t Telephones has asked for a government order- in-council to settle a dispute with Edmonton Telephones re- garding service rights in West Jasper Place, a city suburb. In a submission to a joint meeting of the provincial cab- inet and city council, Tele- phones Minister Ray Reierson asked that AGT, a crown cor- poration, be given exclusive rights in the suburb. A dispute arose when Edmon- ton Telephones claimed1 it had the right to provide service within the present boundaries of the city, including West Jasper Place. In 1963, an agreement be- tween the two telephone sys- tems restricted Edmonton Tele- phones to then existing boun- daries. At that time West Jasper Place was not part of the city. The city maintains the agree- ment is not binding because it was not incorporated into a by- law. A bylaw has since been pass- ed claiming Edmonton Tele- phones has exclusive rights to ;he city's suburban areas. Cyprus said here they are un- able to forecast when United Nations troops can be with- drawn from that divided island. Archbishop Makarios, presi- dent of the republic and leader of the Greek-Cypriots, said he would not oppose a reduction in the size of the force, which includes 586 Cana- dians. Rauf Dekntas, leader of the Turkish community, said how- ever, that the force is at a minimum and cannot be re- duced further without danger of renewed hostilities. Both men spoke to reporters in separate news conferences and their remarks showed the two sides still are far, apart in solving the dispute that came close to becoming an interna- tional, conflict in 1960. As the life of the UN force is extended at three-month inter- vals here, Canada and Secre- tary-General ,U T h a n t, among others, have shown consid- erable restiveness at the slow pace of talks between the two communties. Thant has said repeatedly that time is running out.
