Alberta T2P 1T1 DATED AT THE CITY OF EDMONTON, in the Province of Alberta this 29th day of July, 1974. PUBLIC UTILITIES BOARD S M. BARNETT, Acting Secretary. VANCOUVER (CP) Leaders of provincial Indian organizations disagreed Thursday on the issue of land claims and the Indian Act, dividing along political lines created 100 years ago in some instances In the final session of the annual National Indian Brotherhood Conference, British Columbia and Quebec leaders urged the assembly to seek a settlement of land claims before attempting to change the Indian Act. The issue was not resolved. B.C. and Quebec Indians, in most cases, were not included in treaties signed 100 years ago and later with the majority of Canadian Indians. They stand to gain more from land claims, according to prevailing opinion, since the federal government might be forced to pay non-treaty Indians for seized land at today's values Bill Wilson, member of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, said outside the meeting the debate and lack of agreement Thursday was not a part of "the cliche that if Indians could only get together they would do something" but showed that the NIB was a true level of Indian government "When the provincial premiers get together you don't find them arriving at many immediate con- clusions." he said. The NIB, in a resolution and position paper passed Wednesday, suggested that it was the government of the Indian people. CARDINAL SPEAKS Harold Cardinal, Alberta Indian Association president, led discussion in favor of giving the federal government an Indian position paper on a new Indian Act, provided that consultation with Indian groups continue for a long period. 'The present Indian Act does not reflect the treaty obligations the federal government has toward the Indian people of said Mr. Cardinal. Costs of education, housing and economic development are at the mercry of a particular administration, he said, because they are not guaranteed in the Indian Act. BOOKWORM'S DELIGHT The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., is the world's largest library, containing more than 59 million items. Fruit, vegetables will cost more TORONTO (CP) Rising costs for ingredients, materials and labor will force retail prices for this year's processed fruits and vegetables to increase by 30 to 40 per cent, industry officials predict Garnet Nix, manager of the York Farms division of Canada Packers Ltd Nixon vetoes bills WASHINGTON (AP) In one of his final acts as presi- dent, Richard Nixon on Thurs- day vetoed the annual congressional funds for the agriculture department and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) because of "the pressing need to control inflation." The decision may delay U.S. anti-pollution effort on the Great Lakes In a message to the House of Representatives Nixon noted that in a recent broadcast on United States economic prob- lems, he vowed to veto any money bill substantially exceeding his budget goals. He complained that under the rejected legislation, funds for the fiscal year that began July 1 would exceed his recommendations by million and that the excess in the following bookkeeping year would be million. Nixon also opposed a provi- sion authorizing the EPA to spend all its million to clean up pollution in the Great Lakes. "The feasibility of this cleanup program has not yet been he said. "Further study is essential if we are to avoid ineffective federal spending for these purposes." Toronto, said Thursday he has been forced to revise his earlier forecast of a 20-to 30- per-cent increase L H. Johnson, president of Canadian Canners Ltd., Hamilton, agreed with Mr. Nix's general forecast but said individual items might fall into a wider range of increase possibly 25 to 50 per cent Although increases for individual crops vary widely, the federal department of agriculture Has set the average increase over last year's figures at 48 per cent The Ontario Tender Fruit Growers Marketing Board has already announced that prices for peaches will increase 23.1 per cent this year, bartlet pears 17.6 per cent, prunes 24.2 per cent and plums 29 5 per cent SUGAR COST TRIPLES The cost of sugar has tripled since last summer and most fruits are canned in 40 per cent sugar syrup. A L Nelson, vice-president of production for Canadian Canners, said it would not be easy for processors to lower the sugar content of their syrups as sugar levels are fixed by government regulations Mr. Nix said labor costs have risen sharply with his company having awarded its second wage raise in a year. Similarly, packaging costs have jumped with tin cans up 11 per cent and polyethylene film, used for frozen food, doubled.
