Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
14 THI IETHMIDOI HHAID laturdoy, if You Ask Me.. By HERB JOHNSON TITANY articles have been written on the need for better rehabilitation services for ex-prison inmates. Most of them are well researched and documented. What follows is not intended to fall into that category. It Is not a detailed analysis of the situation, but merely a suggestion for possible improvement of facilities, based on an encounter one afternoon this summer with a man who claimed to have spent 27 of his 39 years in prison. _ Andre Champagne (one of several nances he uses) walked into The Herald office. He wanted to talk with someone, anyone. I listened. I have no reason to doubt his story. Parts of it (maybe all) may have been pure fabrication, but be sounded like he talked from experience when he talked of conditions in the prisons. I'm still not sure what he wanted. His story came out in a mixture of French and English that made communication difficult. What did come through clearly was that Andre was un- happy about conditions in the prisons he'd seen and the provisions that exist for rehabilitation. Not for himself particularly. At 39 he felt he'd learned to take care of himself, and besides, he was pretty much over the hill. What bothered him, and kept cropping up as he rambled on, was the plight of "the the young people whose lives were finished at 17 or 18 because their only real training in jail was in the ways of the criminal. There were youngsters, he said, who had experimented with drugs, mostly just to "get attention" from their elders, and' who wound up on a dead-end street. Once arrested and jailed, most of them had little chance of escaping a life as part of the criminal subculture. They were locked into a pattern that few had the willpower to break. Andre's story came to mind a few weeks later while I was watching a television program about two young couples who had made a break with the city and were trying to establish themselves in the country. It seemed like a satisfying land of existence. Very much in the pioneer tradition that existed here in Alberta not too many years ago. Hard work all day, every day. But with immediate tangible rewards in terms of wood chopped for the winter or vegetables harvested. Plus the knowledge that one is respon- sible for, and has some very real control over one's day-to- day existence. Perhaps young ex-inmates could, in this type of environ- ment, make a break with the relationships that helped get them started on the wrong road. Perhaps an honest day's work that had some meaning in terms, of their own well-being would bolster their self esteem, I believe attempts have been made with programs of this type. I suggest some form of supervised rural work situation be pursued in Alberta as a solution to the problem of re- habilitating young, people just out of jail. Parents are asked to make sure their children put Hal- oweening dress so they can be easily seen by the motoring public to avoid being struck lown. Children, especially the younger ones get excited when hey are out campaigning the neighborhood and are apt to dash across the street without checking for oncoming cars. Gty Prepares For Winter; Summer Projects Finished The city's summer works program is largely completed and the engineering depart- ment now is preparing for winter. In an "end of summer" report, Ted Lawrence, engi- neering director, said the side- walk, curb and gutter work is finished. All planned lane paving has also been done and sufficient petitions received that next year1! commitments are filled. Persons wanting lanes paved will have to wait until 1972. Emergency street repairs have been completed, except for one stretch on 5th Ave. N., which will be deferred until next year. Street lights on the new medi- an strip between the subway and the Centre Village Mall on 13th St. will be installed as soon as the concrete hardens sufficiently. Street sanding apparatus has been installed on two trucks The city plans to have a total of five sanders in operation be- fore whiter arrives.

By DEAN BLAIR Lethbridge could muster only a meagre 25 persons as an audience to hear -pianist Con- stance Channon Douglass Fri- day night at St. Augustine's Parish Hall, but those in atten- dance were well rewarded with an evening of first rate piano playing interspersed with lively and informative comment. The recital began some 20 minutes late, but considering the exhausting and hectic shed- ule Miss Douglass has main- tained on this tour with two and three performances per day, the delay was forgivable. The hall was perhaps a bit to "live" for comfortable piano playing and the piano, although a good one, was not the nine- foot grand Miss Douglass de- served. individual sections were well- played with the section titled aopin the "high point musical- y. The second portion despite a slip here and there turned out to be very exciting and imaginative in performance.

However, those who do trans- fer to the U.S. return to south- ern Alberta in the summer and on special trips during the school year, and hardly any of them are unhappy with their decisions. College students throughout Alberta have been trying to persuade either the universities to accept some of their courses for credit toward university de- grees, or the government to force the universities to agree. Mr. Alston has also been try- ing to get the. Alberta colleges commission to approve a col- lege-oriented university trans- fer program which would allow students lacking complate Grade 12 university entrance credits to take whatever high school courses they lacked, plus up to a complete first year of university. This would allow students to transfer directly to their second university year. by Mozart. Though her techni cal mastery was evident from the start, it took the first two movements to make the musi- cal adjustment is the instru- ment and the hall. The final movement, an exuberant rondo, brought the work and the per formance to life. The remaining works of the first half of the program were the Pinto Scenes from Child- hood, Jeux deau by Ravel and Fete Dieux d'Seville by Al- beniz. It was in these works that Miss Douglass showed her real artistic individuality by a style of playing characterized by a joyful liveliness and vital- ity. The artistic highlight of the evening came in her exquisite handling of the Ravel Jeux d'eau. She achieved with great success the delicate balance be- tween the slightly blurred lines required in impressionism am the clarity required for good pianistic souns. Although the twenty short sections of Schumanns Carni- val are usually played without pause, she choose to perform thorn in two parts and preface eacli part with a rather detail ed description. The first part seemed slightly lacking in continuity, yet the A feasibility study for a lake in West Lethbridge is under- way.

Although there isn't UNICEF committee in Leth- bridge, the Calgary office has contacted all the elementary and junior high schools in the city, asking them to dispense :he boxes to students who wish to take part. The response from the schools has been excellent, ihe Calgary office said. UNICEF was organized in 1946 to' help refugee children in Europe. It became a perman- ent committee of the U n i t e d Nations in 1953 and since that time the shift on aid is deter- mined as conditions warrant in war torn countries and devel- oping nations. Three main projects comprise the bulk of the UNICEF an- nual budget: halloween boxes, Christmas greeting cards and Miles for Millions marches. The 1970 budget of mil- lion is made up of private and government donations as well as the contributions from the national committees. In Can- ada in 1969, a total of mil- lion was turned over to the UNICEF committee. Tms was matched by a million dona- tion from the federal govern- ment. Last year in Alberta, the con- tributions to UNICEF from all sources totalled This was made up of from Halloween boxes, from greeting cards, from Miles for Millions and from private donations.
