About 60 briefs from groups and a few individuals are scheduled for discussion at hearings Sept. 11 at Calgary and Sept. 25 to 29 at Edmonton.

Mr. Harrison said his part in the close-out decision was in- fluenced by the number of hours and investment he has put into the business. When the city bylaw allowed stores to remain open Wednes- day afternoons and Thurs- day and Friday nights, Mr. Harrison started to question, the number of hours he was neded at the stores.

Controversy continues By BILL HUNT and 1LAUGENEDER Canada's judicial system is currently being eyed by a criti- :al public. The public is eyeing, with de- spair, the country's parole and >robalion system because of a tandful of criminals that have abused the privileges and bene- "its offered them. But, at the Lethbridge Cor- rectional Institute, a minimum ;ecurity institution, W a rden L. G. Fisher, fully supports laroles and probation. As a result of the rehabilita- tion, educational and vocation- al training at the institute, the lumber of government wards at the jail has "dropped dra- matically" in the last few years. At the time of the interview there were only 95 prisoners compared with more than 220 a few years previous. "This, I think, is due to pa- roles and probations and the rehabilitation he said. Rot only is the Lethbridge jail showing the benefits of these methods but so are other correctional institutions through- out the country. However, at present, Mr. Fisher says it would still be difficult to justify large and costly program expansions in the area of rehabilitation and prisoner education. "In the past two years something new in the way ol inmate rehabilitation has come to the correctional institutions in the way of temporary ab- sence permits and day pa- he said. They are issued for a num- ber of valid reasons "but the most common would appear to be that of gaining employment outside the institution itself. "They allow the inmate the opportunity of once again be- coming employed thus helping him to create a place in so ciety for himself." Various stringent rules have to be abid ed by. For the inmate a feeling o accomplishment is realized "Doing something constructive while undergoing sentence and doing skilled or unskillec jobs they have chosen to do. The program is termed uccessful" by Warden Fisher 10 points out there are some men "either working or at- nding school on temporary isence permits and day pa- les." And the continued suc- ss of the program is fore- ist. The majority of inmates at e Lethbridge Correctional In- itute are of native origin. Warden Fisher says the ma- rity of these are very "co- perative." "One 'of the more encourag- g signs of late is the fact that Key seem to be a little more terested in taking advantage the various programs direct- towards sell improvement nd rehabilitation generally." Some are fighting their alco- olism problem in a construc- ve way wMIe a few others "taking advantage of our cademie program." These are aken at the Lethbridge Com- mnity College in addition to orrespondence courses. WPLICATION At the present time the large xpenditure of money to dupli- ate vocational and education- 1 courses offered in the com- munity is not being considered t the correctional institute t least by the federal govern- ment. Just how effective the crea- on of additional training facil- ties at the institute might be s still open to question at pres- nt, he said, again referring to he expenditures necessary. "They might be so, on that sasis and at this time, bearing n mind the reduced prisor population I cannot forsee any major expansion at tins ime." First in a series Suicides are increasing especially among young Early Saturday morning, Sept. 2, 1972, the start of the Labor Day long weekend. While others were asleep, some perhaps dreaming of catching big fish or a good round of golf, a 13 year-old man, who police said had drug problems for two years, committed suicide in Leth- bridge. The narcotics problem has become the leading cause of suicides, claiming the lives ef six youngsters ir. less than three years. In the following report, Herald Staff Writer Joe Ma examines the prob- lem and what the Salvation Army suicide-prevention ser- vice is doing about it.

In Waterloo National Park holding the telphone, looking grave and clad only in pyja- nas, dancing up and down in riis basement suite for an hour one night last December, the windows open despite sub-zero temperature Because he, too, was at the end of the line but it was the lifeline of hope. Ilis walls were painted so the windows were open to quicken the dry- ing, and he was sleeping when the phone rang. He danced for warmth, but he held his breath. Experience told him he could not give the voice the impression lie was being Ihe least troubled. The voice at the other end of the line was contemplating the final and irrevocable act of a des- perately unhappy person. Once the voice was gone, so was a human being. "When you are on call, the voice on the phone is the only person in the Capt. But- cher said. "Nothing else mat- ters." FRIENDLY VOICE That episode happened in Cal- gary. Capt. Bulcher has since been transferred to Lethbridge, and one of his duties continues lo be the friendly and confi- dential voice you can call any time of the day or night to pour your heart out to. Suicide ranks among the 10 major causes of death in Can- ada. The- incidence could be even higher, since not all sui- cides arc reported as such. It is difficult to determine suicides from the accidental deaths, since the parties con- cerned will go lo great length at concealing suicides. Suicide not only destroys "reputation" but it is also con- demned by religion and listed as crime under the law. Insur- ed ance policies stipulate condi ions under wliich suicide can not reap the benefits of an ac cidental death. For legal and moral consider ations, therefore, suicides ar not often reported and the iden :ities of the people involved ar secret. Sucidies are on the increase According to the Canada Year nook, Canadians ende their own lives in 1966, i 1967 and in 1968. For every person who actua! [y commits suicide, a Salvatio Army pamphlet says, anothe eight or nine make some al tempt at killing themselves. YOUNG PEOPLE In Lethbridge, a shockin trend is developing that young people committing su cide due to drug problems. In the past years, drug addic lion and related problems become the single leading caus of suicides in Lcthbridge, po ice Detective Sergeant Irvin Leishner said. "In 1970, 1971 and so far thi year, six suicides were com milled by youngsters undo the age of 22 because of dru he said. "Bcfor that, we had maybe one suicid every 10 years involving a youngster." Police fileb showed five sui- cides in 1969, five in 1970, three in 1971 and five so far this year. Two suicides in 1970, one last year and two this year were by youngsters. (Head the second in the ser- ies of four articles Questioned about the role oj halfway house, Warden Fish- r said "it could serve a very useful purpose a place here people can go on release nd gradually re establish lernselves back in the corn- Limity." He, in essence, said it is so- iety's responsibility to estab- sh a proper and carefully run alfway house. Admitting there have oeen :rides made in financially re- 'arding prisoners for work one while in jail, they still on't have much on release "limited resources and no ie, place or organization to um to." But a halfway house would lave a solid financial base in ddition to good management o be effective and "would then serve a very useful purpose."
