Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Responsibilities of sheriff now restricted to civil law By JUDE TUIUC Herald Special Writer The desk and the office are tbout what anybody would ex- pect. But there's no sign of a rifle rack, holster, big hat or star with a bullet hole in 11. Actually, the job of sheriff in the Letbbridge district just what it's cracked up to be in the movies. For tlie past 16 years of his appointment, Sheriff Alexander Gilchrist has been busy atlend- ing to his business under several titles. "I have a list of official said Mr. Gilclirist, "which have notliing to do with each bul are all part of his job. Among those areas he men- tioned were clerk of the court, clerk of the supreme court, marriage commissioner, sherifl and registrar of vital statistics. "The two main he said, "are being sheriff and clerk of the court. These are the same in all 12 courthouses in Alberta." Mr. Gilchrist explained (hat he basically "enforces Ihe ]udg ments of the court." This includes Ihe most obvious part of his job which is seizure of property. He said many of these are dis rcss seizures rather than jiulg- nenls of the court, such as a ein on a car. Under Alberta said Mr. Gilchrist, "a finance company must go through a court proced- ure to enforce a seizure, and his gives the people the pro- ection of the law." Mr. Gilchrist explained he doe; not personally serve docu- ments, but has officers both in own and in the surrounding area working for him. "There are three sheriff's ball- ots 'or officers in the he said, "and four who work in the district. "The district area extends from the U.S. border lo this side of Vulcan and from Mon- arch to Bow Island." Unlike sheriffs in the United States, Canadian sheriffs deal only with civil law. "The origin of today's sheriff probably came from the Eng- lish shire and said Mr Gilchrist, "and they dealt with criminal and civil laws. "Bul as things became more complex in society, parts of the law which the sheriffs controlled were taken away from them. He said the U.S. retained criminal law involvement in the job, chose to elect sheriffs, and also maintain Ihe position of ustice of the peace. "In said Mr. Gil- hrist, "we don't have a JP, ut what is called a marriage ommissioner. When il comes to civil mar- iages, he is Ihe only person, other than a clergyman, who has the authority to marry peo- ple." Mr. Gilchrist added that for lie past 1G years, lie has been he only marriage commission- er within approximately 100 miles, although a recent ap- iointment has named a second LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By KATHY de JONG Cilhollc Central High School A bell rings.

Cosmetics of hope' WASHINGTON (AP) America'! 20 million senior cili- ens are rallying to their own cause and fust becoming one of the most organized groups in the country. The National Council of Senior Citizens, an organization, reports it has three million members In more than affiliated clubs. An- other 3.8 million are members of the National Retired Teach- ers Association and the Ameri- can Association of Retired Per- B o n s, both predominantly white-collar Both the National Council and the AAHP have doubled their membership in the last five years and the AARP said that each week more people are paying the memberslup fee to join. Many stale organizations also report record growth. Missouri AARP and NRTA report about members and are adding another each month. The Iowa Slate Commission on Aging reported last year it was aware of 275 senior citizen clubs; this year, 654. In some areas organizations touch on as many as 50 per cent of the population over age 65. New York City's Congress of Senior Citizens claims a mem- bership of hall the elderly in the city and a quarter of the state's two mil- lion senior citizens. PRESSING NEEDS William Hutton, executive director of the U-year-old Na- tional Council, said the recent trend toward organizing is due to the pressing needs of the steadily increasing numbers of retirees, who are living longer thanks to medical science but on fixed incomes, during a lime of inflation. At the same time, he said, there is a growing realization lhat though people over 65 rep- resent only 9.8 per cent of the country's population, they are 16 per cent of those who vote rad they have demonstrated that when aroused, they can ote significantly as a block, de- pile previous party affiliations.

Venezuelan abortions clandestine CARACAS (API Will) an estimate that Caracas has 100 abortions daily, a jvidge predicts some change is inevitable for Venezuelan laws which out- law such operations. Judge Omar Arenas Candelo, who investigated medical prac- tices after publicity over deaths from illegal alxjrtions in Cara- cas, said in a report that at least 200 clinics had not come under control of the ministry of health. He estimated abortions annually are per- formed in clandestine clinics. He didn't say why these haven't been closed, but concluded that police find out about only one in every abortions. The judge reported an abor- tion costs 530 to S300 and that clandestine operations cause a considerable number of deaths. "In countries where abortion has been legalized, the rate of deaths has been reduced to j Arenas Candelo wrote. Some authorities believe Ven- ezuela, as a Roman Catholic country, will not modify Its law. They say police should exercise stricter control and the govern- ment should promote sex educa- tion. he final analysis, it's snob ap-1 To Leonard Lauder, execu- ive vice president, of Estee jauder, women don't necessar- ly want lo shop for value when they buy cosmetics, :but if we were selling a jar of hope, would have been oul of business." What accounts for the price variations that frequently run as high as 500 per cent in cos- metics?

Research and development. Mora stringent quality con- trol. More variety In shades and colors and greater risks in introducing and keeping up with fashion trends. More expensive containers and packaging. Lipstick cases, for example, range in price from six cents up to about 32 cents, about 33 per cent of the cosl of producing the product. Greater costs in advertising, sales promotion, sampling, free gifts and doing business with in- fluential retail stores. A return and exchange policy hat guarantees customer satis- faction and frequently allows stores to return merchandise at periodic intervals. Returns can run from six to 15 per cent of shipments and one manufac- turer estimated that his com- pany took back "several mil- lion dollars worth of perfect- ly good products" annually Most returned products are de- stroyed. The manufacturers whose products are considered rela lively inexpensive readily ac mil that they make little al tempt to be innovative. "We don't pioneer new proc said Revson of Dell.
