A. H. (Dutch) Smithoram, Ot- tawa assistant chairman of tlie secretary of state's native cit- izen development group, told friendship centre delegates from five provinces aixl two territories attending n five-day annual conference here. tlKt the money be available Sept. 30, but more probably in a federal elec- tion nolwitivstar.ding.

Alberta centres will join protest shutdown WINNIPEG Alberta's sev- en friendship centres will join others throughout tho country in a 2-l-hour protest shutdown next Wednesday over federal dc'lnys in issuing operating grants. Keg Newkirk, president of llio Albert a Native Friendship As- sociation in Pincher Creek said today, "The Alberta association fully supports the slant! adopted by the national association. "We feel that unless the mon- ey is released immediately, Al- berta's two largest centres in Calgary and Edmonton will fold within (he next month or so Kdmontou's centre certainly within Hie next week." William Head, executive di- rector of the Lethbridge Friend- ship Centre also joined others in demanding immediate action from the government and an- nounced his centre would follow the same course. Mr. Newuirk also criticized the Alberta government for its of support of provincial centres and the provincial ns- I socialion. "Of the modest mini- mum and maximum budget we submitted lo Ihe government, we received only exactly the same as last year except that Alberta I vis one more centre and the cost of living has ho said. "No provision was made for a growth factor, therefore all the centres are operating with smaller budgets than last year for Lcthhridgc, which received an over-all six per cent increase to a total of li> per cent of the provincial pic."
