Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Miss Dorje still hopes her parents are alive By D'AKCY ItlCKAKD Ilcrnlct Slaff Writer Miss Kcsang Dorjo to soutlicm Alberta from India in September, 1971. Now she is even farther away from her parents. She wonders if she will ever sec them again or even hear from them. "I cried a she says. It would take hours to loll her story. Diminutive Miss Dorje was 15 when she last saw her mother and father. It was 1M9. The scene is her country, Tibet. .On Oct. 21, 19.W, Hie UN gen- eral assembly by 'K voles to nine with 26 abstentions, ap- proved a resolution which de- plored the events in Tibet and called for the Chinese respect of fundamental human rights of the Tibetan people. The Chinese were spitting on these fundamental human rights, "They don't believe in says Miss Dorje. "We cannot live without religion." In earlier days a visitor to a Tibetan city would see prayer flags on the roofs, flags with printed prayers on them. The girl said goodbye to her parents. "My father wore a chupa, a Sumona with sleeves and sash and a while silk blouse under- neath." Then she began the walk to India. By mid-1950 more than refugees hat! fled from Tibet to India for sanctuary. She walked from Lhasa, her home and, she hopes, still the home of her parents. "We walked about three months In the mountains." She was with 38 people at the start but only eight of her party arrived in India. The rest were caughl or died on (lie way. Miss Dorje lived at New Delhi for three years. She was in a camp at Dalhousie for seven years. Speaking boll) lan- guages, she became an inter- preter and often visited camps at Dchra Dun and Dhormsala. "People in the camps arc suffering because of the hot weather. It is a cold climate they are used to in Tibet." Through the early China continued lo consolidate its control of Tibet. Thousands continued to flee lo Itnlia and Nepal. The Dali [Jiama re- mains in exile in India. Miss Dorje is saddened when slie thinks of the loss of the extensive Tibetan literature. It was translated over the cen- turies from Indian works. Chinese soldiers sacked the temples. Miss Uofje says the soldier? sairl "show me where there is God." "They want to sec she says. Now a letter has gone to the new Chinese ambassador here, Yao Kuang, asking thai a lel- tcr be sent lo Miss Dorje's par- enls and sister, "We wanted to come, they wanted to come or.e day she remembers. The Chinese came and put them in jail. I came with my brother. They put the nuns and monks in the temples. They didn't give them food, they said Buddha will feed you." Now she wonders if her par- ents are alive. "The government here is very kind to us but we are con- cerned with the rest of the pco- pie that are suffering in Tibet. That is what I feel." Tibet is her country. To the rest of us, it's just province of China. Trustees discuss spread of electors in division TAKER (UK'S) Dispropor- tional representation of elec- tors in the various subdivisions of Taher School Division No. 6 was a of discussion at the board's recent meeting. No final decisions or recom- mendations were made be- cause of the complexity of problems involved in a more equalized representation, said school superintendent James L. George. The meeting heard a report from S. Simonson of the depart- ment of education, Edmonton, covering a study of area rep- resentation, in which it was shown that the VauxhaU trus- tee represents a far larger area than does the Enchant trustee. Simunson explained any COALDALE (HNS) The ve-year agreement" with the Jethbridge County 26 for fire rotection services was recent- y accepted by town council. Councillor William Martens, esponsible for fire depart- ment, made (he recommenda- .on to council that the agree- .fint be approved. It was pointed out the county oes not wish to participate to- vards the ambulance share of osts. It does not provide this ser- ice. The town has established mileage fee for out-of-town alls. MISS KE5ANG DORJE OF TIBET Fire deaths accidental alteration of subdivision bound- aries must coincide with the boundaries of Hie now obsolete school districts which were es- tablished in the days of the one-room school system. Consideration was given to aligning the school subdivision boundaries with the municipal divisions. These do not coin- cide with the old school dis- tricts. Seven trustees comprise five rural and I wo (Taber) repre- sentatives, while (he MD has seven divisions. An alignment of school and municipal repre- sentation areas would mean the scrapping of (he old school district boundaries and creasing the school board to nine. It will he studied again.

I have this insane idea. Let's not go on. You can go read something else, Ann Landers, or the doctor column, or even the sports page. I'll go on alone, with per- haps only one or two readers, and bare my soul. You see, my great grand- father was a Mormon bishop, I'm very proud of him. He had several wives, not spaced apart, but, as they say in mag- istrate's court, concurrent. Bishop David Evans and descendants 1 Now, alas! I have strayed far from the paths of righ- teousness. I was a right-mind- ed young man but one day, while cleaning out the barn, 1 me across a distinguished looking bottle. T took a sip, then another Let's get back to the news: this hijacking. Frankly. I want to hijack something. Something big. Something like the Mor- mon temple. Hold on, rton'l gel in a Hap! I might not even do it! But thinking about it, M-ell. some- how, that's wrong, even to think, isn't it? Anyway, this is how It may be done. I'll hire these house- movers, see, anci tell them to get on with it. Then I'll find this other fel- low, see, about my same height and build, and we'll go down to Cardslon and arrange it. Like, I mean, when two guys march around the street in a pair, well, they cannot be denied. No question about It, a neat little caper. No. T wouldn't give it back to Cartlston, not ever, not even if they said please, And I'd let everyone go through it, just like Disneyland. few. and I think their doors should always be open, to any- one, Which brings us to the paint- ings Uncle Ed Evans did. Yes, lie did. No, he's not really my Uncle Ed Evans, he's my mother's great Uncle Ed Evans and my great, great Uncle Ed Evans, or something. He painted these wonder M pictures. Yes, lie was a won- derful artJsl. He painted beau- .iful inurals. He covered the walls of (he Mormon temple al Cardston. And 1 think everyone should get a chance to see hem. Animals, trees, moun- tains beautifull But really, the thing that really spurs all this, is my loyalty to Magrath. Magrath is my adopted home-town, n ot Cardston. And I've always thought Magrath should have got the temple. Yes, there was quite a too- doo about it, back in 1913. Thai's when il happened, Fri- day, Feb. 21, 1913. "Cardston gets the temple to be erected in Alberta, for Canadian mem- bers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. There had been keen rivalry between Cardston, Magrath and Raymond for the big build- ing but (he pioneer settlement of Mormons won out. And the other towns all fell loyally in line. All except me, that is. It cost to build. Card- ston's had it long enough. Now it's the Garden City's turn. We've got to build Magrath back up somehow, eh Duke?
