Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Saturday, October 31, 1970 // You Ask M e.. By HERB JOHNSON TyfANY 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 names 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 he 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 unhappy 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 kids", 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 kind 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 responsible for, and has some very real control over one's day-today existence. Perhaps young ex-inmates could, in this type of environment, make a break with the relationships that helped get tbem 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 rehabilitating young people just out of jail. Qty Prepares For Winter; Summer Projects Finished The city's summer works program is largely completed and the engineering department now is preparing for winter. In an "end - of - summer" report, Ted Lawrence, engineering director, said the sidewalk, curb and gutter work is finished. All planned lane paving has also been done and sufficient petitions received that next year's commitments are filled. Persons wanting lanes paved will have to wait untdl 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 median strip between the subway and the Centre Village Mall on 13th St. will be installed as soon as the concrete hardens INSURANCE  LIABILITY  BONDS  AUTO  FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES LTD.

Man Up Fives Times A Hardieville man was sentenced to four months in jail and prohibited from driving in Canada for three years when he pleaded guilty in magistrate's court to his fifth charge of impaired driving. Court was told that Arthur Martens had four previous convictions on impaired driving. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail on his last previous conviction and three weeks the time before. His licence was suspended for three years on Mb last previous conviction. "Anyone with that number of impaired driving convictions has to have � drinking problem," Magistrate Lloyd Hudson said. "The kindest thing I can do with you is something that might help your drinking problem." In passing sentence he recommended that Martens' time be spent at the Belmont institute for alcoholics in Edmonton. TO SYMBOLIZE FOND MEMORY Choose wisely the monument to honor your loved ones.

LETHBRIDGE MONUMENTAL AND TILE WORKS "We Have Been Satisfying Customers for Over.60 Years" 325 8th St. 5., lethbridge Phone 327-3920 THAT'S ABOUT THE SIZE OF IT as far as water meters are concerned, says Reg Whitfield, head of the city's water meter repair service. In his hand is a 4'/2 pound household merer with a capacity of 20 gallons per minute. The big daddy on the floor is a 2,250 pound Watch For Those little Tunkers job with a capacity of 2,800 gallons per minute. Thei big meter is to be installed at the new University of Lethbridge campus. It is the largest water meter to be installed by the city. Look Out Motorists. It's Halloween! Parents are asked to make sure their children out Hal-loweening dress so they can be easily seen by the motoring public to avoid being struck down. Children, especially the younger ones get excited when they are out campaigning the neighborhood and are apt to dash across the street without checking for oncoming cars. ZJ.S. Plan On Admissions Said Realistic American universities have far more realistic admissions policies than do their Canadian conuterparts says Doug Alston, director of the Lethbridge Community College school of liberal education. "I'm not at all alarmed if our LCC students go to those U.S. universities, particularly since our own universities refuse to recognize the benefits of college courses," he said. "There are some excellent universities in the States willing to take our graduates, to allow them to continue their educations - and there is a distinct need for this sort of flexibility in admission policies." Several hundred college students could potentially transfer to American institutions each year from Lethbridge, although - so far - less than 100 have. However, those who do transfer to the U.S. return to southern 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 degrees, or the government to force the universities to agree. Mr. Alston has also been trying to get the Alberta colleges commission to approve a college-oriented university transfer program which would allow students lacking complete 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. Inspector Max Coupland of the Lethbridge city police said Saturday night is a busy night any week of the year and Halloween the same night makes it even more dangerous for the children. If children are going to wear black, parents are asked to put some white tape on their cos- tumes so motorists will be able to see them. Motorists are asked to slow down and be on the look out for the children on the streets. Second-Rate Attendance For First-Rate Recital By DEAN BLAIR Lethbridge could muster only a meagre 29 persons as an audience to hear -pianist Constance Channon Douglass Friday night at St. Augustine's Parish Hall, but those in attendance 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 maintained 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 deserved. The program opened with the Sonata in B flat Major K 570 by Mozart. Though her technical mastery was evident from the start, it took the first two movements to make the musical adjustment to the instrument and the hall. The final movement, an exuberant rondo, brought the work and the performance to life. The remaining works of the first half of the program were the Pinto Scenes from Childhood, 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 vitality. 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 between the slightly blurred lines required in impressionism and the clarity required for good pianistic souns. Although the twenty short sections of Schumanns Carnival are usually played without pause, she choose to perform thorn in two parts and preface eadh part with a rather detailed description. The first part seemed slightly lacking in continuity, yet the HEINITZ PRINTERS & STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. S.

The second portion despite a slip here and there turned out to be very exciting and imaginative in performance. A Scriabin Prelude and the Prelude in G minor by Rach- maninoff were the two encores. The Rachmaninoff displayed a strength in the louder dynamics that had not been reached in the rest of the recital.

The Miss Hope contests are part of the educational program of the cancer society, and plans already are under way for the local contest for the new year. The society's annual meeting will be held in the Scandinavian Hall at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 2. All persons who have contributed to the society are members and are entitled to attend the annual meeting. Tickets are available at the society's offices in the Canada Trust Building. The featured speaker for the meeting will be Dr. Allan Patterson, the director of the University of Alberta Cancer Research Unit, McEachern Laboratory. He will show slides of the n e w cancer laboratory being built by the cancer society as part of the Basic Medical Sciences Building at the University of Alberta. Dr. Patterson also will be prepared to answer any questions. Other highlights of the annual meeting of the society will be the election of directors for the coming term, and the presentation of reports covering society activities during the past year. One will deal with the annual campaign for funds, which this year was successful in going over the top in the territory covered by the Lethbridge unit. Over $43,000 was collected.- West Lethbridge Lake Study Starts A feasibility study for a lake in West Lethbridge is underway. Ted Lawrence, city engineering director, says preliminary plans are being made up and a meeting will be held soon with Cancer Society Plans Honors Walter E. Huckvale Lethbridge lawyer, will be honored by the Canadian Cancer Society, Alberta division, at its annual meeting Monday evening in the Scandinavian Hall. Mr. Huckvale will be receiving a national life Membership for his years of untiring effort on behalf of the society at the local, provincial and national levels. He will also be presented with a provincial award. Also to be honored will be Linden Kellicut of Granum, who has been responsible for the cancer society campaign for funds in his area for many years. the parks and recreation department and city planners. Once this preparatory work has been completed test holes will be drilled, likely in November, to determine the soil structure in the area. The proposed site for the lake is now a slough. The idea of making it into a lake was part of the West Lethbridge development proposal, which has been accepted in principle by council. Planned as the focal point of a school, recreational and residential complex, the lake was intended to be part of the second phase of development in West Lethbridge. The feasibility study was undertaken at this time in order to integrate planning for it with the first phase of development. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A.

Fund program. This year's slogan is "Help UNICEF Help." Although there isn't a UNICEF committee in L e t h-bridge, the Calgary office has contacted all the elementary and junior high schools in the city, asking them to dispense the boxes to students who wish to take part. The response from the schools has been excellent, the Calgary office said. UNICEF was organized in 1946 to' help refugee children in Europe. It became a permanent committee of the U n i t e d1 Nations in 1953 and since that time the shift on aid is determined as conditions warrant in war - torn countries and developing nations. Three main projects comprise the bulk of the UNICEF annual budget: halloween boxes, Christmas greeting cards and Miles for Millions marches. The 1970 budget of $50 million is made up of private and government donations as well as the contributions from the national committees. In Canada in 1969, a total of $1.2 million was turned over to the UNICEF committee. This was matched by a $1 million donation from the federal government. Last year in Alberta, the contributions to UNICEF from all sources totalled $157,121. This was made up of $60,794 from Halloween boxes, $30,817 from greeting cards, $46,004 from Miles for Millions and $19,506 from private donations.
