Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE UTHR5IOGE HERAID Monrtny. April 10, 1973 ll icc More Indian MRs needed Tno ImiMii Brotherhood is uikiiK a re.iHstic1 look al tlic Indian Miu.n'i'Ji vrrn ii UKI'S its members to fie'.il more camUdntes in the m-xl election. V. present there is only one Indian Mr. M.iroliand. Liberal member for'.oops Cariboo in B.C. Ho history by becoming the first iii'iian over' elooted to Parliament v. lion he defeated Davie Fulton, for- mer Conservative minister of justice, in IMS. The spokesman for Ihe brother- hood, (ieonie Manuel of Kainloops, slated in an mien lew that tlie Ind- ians need proper political representa- tion; lliat, economic develop- ment comes next." lie emphasized that Hie brother- hood challenges the federal govern- ment on their multi-cultural political ploy: "others besides Ihe French and Kuglish need rights." At present Canada lias a number of Indian leaders wlio not only would likely make excellent but could possibly prevent more unproductive programs being Ilirnst on them by the government without their consent. Dave (.'ourclieno, William and Harold Cardinal are three cap- able and intelligent Indian spokes- men and they represent only two provinces. Multiply this polcntial in Ihc eight oilier provinces and it be- comes n strong and healthy bloc of leaders could make their needs known to Parliament in no uncertain terms. Ideally, it be highly suilablo if an Indian became Minister of Ind- ian Allairs, tor I here seems to he an lack of communication with the plethora of non-Indian ministers have held this post, and to Hie brotherhood this is probably undcr- slinulaWc. The Indian brotherhood has become a strong voice for its people and. at last, it is being listened to. II predominantly Indian constituencies elect one of their own in forthcoming elections, discrimination should wane and in lime Indians may even get a better shave oC Canada's benefits. National Wildlife Week Will the real environmentalists please stand up and be identified.' can we be sure they are legiti- mate environmentalists if they do stajid up? The environment issue has come to Hie forefront with sudden force and it has let the vast majority of the people completely confused. It's be- come almost incessant hammer- ing: there is something wrong be- tween man and the place where he lives. At one extreme are the so called eco freaks. They maintain that doom is here and there is no hope. At the other extreme are the spoilers. Anything goes to make a dollar. Live for today. In between are the throngs who don't know what to believe. Poorly understood facts, half truths, misrepresented issues, ill-de- fined courses of action, gray areas and camouflaged legislation are also a part of the issue. No wonder the masses would like the real environ- mentalists lo stand up. be they con- cerned with land, air or water. There's a trust that our modern technology will find a solution to the problem, without forsaking any be- lief we may have in the importance of increasing our tiross National Pro- duct. The is ihc one who must understand and program the environ- ment ethic. The training of a profes- ional ecologist is a long, arduous process. Hut, even his training will nol be Ihe .solution to the problem if the layman fails lo understand On April 13, 19-17 both Houses of Parliament unanimously passed an act setting aside the week of April 10. each year as National Wildlife Week. It was a memorial to the late .lack Miner, who worked throughout his lifetime for the cause of conser- vation, particularly of the Canada goose. Since thai time National Wildlife Week has become primarily an edu- cational week throughout the coun- try. It attempts to foster understand- ing with regard to our environment and it offers opportunity to help pre- vent impending disaster. There are many voluntary agen- cies and various departments of governments following up with inter- pretive programs and they are anx- ious to help. They offer the opportunity fur man to live more in harmony v, ith his surroundings. ART BUCHWALD Getting press coverage When you get right down to it, the Democratic primary races are really a light tor press space and free television time. Because there are 10 many candidates in the race and none tf them has said anything new since they ilarted running, it's very hard for a presi- lenfial aspirant to get on (he lube or in :he papers he docs something }UC. Mayor John Lindsay, for example, spent '.he night sleeping on Ihe couch of a a-year ivorker in Milwaukee "to identify uilh the little man." lie was offered the worker's hed, but Lindsay said he'd rnthcr Bleep on Ihe couch because he tossed and turned a lot at nigut. As lime goes on, eacli candidate's staff is going to have to escalate Ihc type of stunt which v.ill attract press and TV cov- erage. 1 can imagine in the next few mouths tlw tallowing convcrsalion in a candidate's of- fice: "Senator, we've come out wth a dandy Idea which gel us on the local CBS stall on.

"I'm not sure Penelope is up to lhat." "It's essential, Senator.

Nixon's reach, concern about inflation and unemployment seem likely to be strong forces pushing lliesc youths toward the Democrats, as (lie party of economic betterment. That i.s certainly the impression one gains in talking wilh the work- ing youth here in highly indus- trialized (and well-educated) Wisconsin. The potential Impact of this can be judged from the fact that of the new voters, 17.5 mil- lion are non-students. There is a further element, which must he taken into con- sideration. Though divided in attitudes, the young tend lo share a taste for forcofulness and innovation. During the re- cent Wisconsin primary, it was striking to see how this worked against Hubert Humphrey and Edmund Muskic, who were identified with the mainstream of Democratic party policies. A youth at a high school ap- pearance by Sen. Humphrey was skcplical about tlic former pi'esidciil'i sweeping promises of social reform. lie admired Sen. McGovcrn not only for his adamant opposi- tion to the Vietnam war, but because he took firm and con- sistent stands, bricked up by highly .specific: proposals. In a sharply contrasting inci- dent, a mnn who was taking university courses, but also holding a job, scottcd as he witnessed Sen. Muskie mak- ing an iiddre.sii to Milwaukee University students. The senator talked of sweeping changes in the economic system, but lo this individual it was just so much political talk hy a mem- ber ot the Washington Estab- lishment. In his view, that Establish- ment needed a good shaking up if there was lo be real action on the nation's problems. Ho meant lo .support Alabama Governor George Wallace as a means of causing a shake-up. In his view and it was not the view of a iniddlo-aged ra- cist, or even a conservative was I hat Gov. Wallace was closer to rejecting the senti- ments of much of the U.S. pub- lic than uas any other candi- date. Mr. Wnllnce was, he said, attuned to feelings cf demorali- zation about street crime, drug addiction, and mushrooming welfare spending made for trushing Inn1- on workers and pension- ers already hard hit by infla- tion.
