Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Miss Dorje still hopes her parents are alive By D'AUCY 1IICKAHD Ilcrnlcl Slarr Writer Miss Kcsang Dorjc came lo 'southern Alhcrla from India in September, 1S1V1. Now slie is even farther away from her parents. She wonders if she will ever sec again or even hear from them. "I cried a she says. It would take liours to loll her story. Diminutive Miss Dorje was 15 when slie last saw her mntlior and lather. It was 1950. The scene is her country, Tibet. .On Oct. 21, Hie UN gen- eral assembly '15 votes to nine 26 abstentions, ap proved a resolution which do plorccl llic events in Tibet and seven years. Speaking boll) lan- guages, she became an inter- preter and often visited camps at Dchra Dun and Dharmsala. "People in the camps arc suffering because of (lie hot weather. It is a cold climate [hey are used to in Tibet." Through the early 1960s China continued lo consolidate its control of Tibet. Thousands continued to flee lo India and Nepal. The Dali Uiama re- mains in exile in India. Miss Dorje is saddened when she thinks of the loss of Ihn extensive Tibetan literature. K was translated over tlie cen- turies from Indian works. Chinese soldiers sacked the temples. Miss Uorje says the soldiers sairl "show me where there is God." called for the Chinese respect of fundamental human rights j says of the Tibetan people. The Chinese were spitting on those fundamental human rights, "They don't believe in says Miss Dorje. "We cannot live without religion." In earlier clays a visitor to a Tibetan city would see prayer flags on tlie roofs, flags with printed prayers on Ihom. The girl said goodbye lo her parents. "My father wore a chupa, a Jumona with sleeves and sash and a while silk blouse under- neath." Then she began the walk to India. By more llian refugees had fled from Tibet to India lor sanctuary. She walked from Lhasa, her home and, she hopes, still the home of her parents. "We walked about three monlhs In the mountains." She was will) 3D people at tlie start but only eight of her party arrived in India. The rest were caught or died on tlie way. Miss Dorje lived at New Delhi for three years. She was in a camp at Dalhousie for 'They want lo see she Now a letter lias gone lo llic new Chinese ambassador here, asking tliat a let- ter he serl lo Miss Dorje's par- ents and sislcr. "We wanted to come, they wanted to come ot.e day slio remembers. The Chinese came and put them in jail. I came with my lirolher. 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 lo us hul we are con cerncd with the rest of the peo- ple that are suffering in Tihel. Thai is whal I feel." Tibet is her counlry. To the rest o[ us, it's just a province of China.

No final decisions or recom- mendations were made be- cause of the complexity of problems involved in a more equalized reprcscnlalion, said school superintendent James L. George. The meeting heard a report from S. Simonson of tlie depart- ment of education, Edmonton, covering a study of area rep- resentation, in which it was shown that the Vauxhall trus- tee represents a far larger area than does Hie Enchant trustee. Simunson explained any alteration of subdivision bound- aries must coincide the boundaries of the 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 Ihe old school dis- tricts. Seven trustees comprise five rural and two (Taber) repre- sentatives, while the MD has seven divisions. An alignment of school and municipal repre- sentation areas would mean the scrapping of Ihe old school district boundaries nnrl creasing the school board (o nine. It will be studied again.
