To date Edmonton reports 4.1 accidents causing injuries to cyclists and Calgary reports one such accident, The total number of cyclists killed in accidents in Alberta to date is eight, two of them wero killed in Edmonton, none in Lcthbridgc or Calgary.

To improve cycle safety In- spector West believes all cycl- iste should have to wear hel- mets to "at least give them some soil of protection."

Two bicycles collide Two bicycles collided Thursday niglit at the IGOOth block on 8th Ave, S., result- ing in damage. No injur- ies were reported. The bicycles were driven by Mark Ervin, 14. of 1006 17th St. N. and Larry F. Huhcr, 24, of 1D05 Ave. N No charge was laid against cither of the drivers anil po lice called the incident a "misadventure." Indian news media in financial difficulties Puppets popular and (he federal govern-, mcnt for a total of 000 or less than the 1971 budget, Airs. Bly said. But the; federal government hasn't come forth with the money yet and tlie INM is run- ning in the red to the extent of a bank loan. And theru i.s no definite Indi- cation of the federal money v.ill available, she added. The federal government made numerous verbal promises of when the money will be available, but none has yet materialized. Staff members at Kainai News have; indicated they are prepared to work for half pay or promissory' notes if the money is not available by next mon Hi. Kainai News has a circula- tion of about and provides news and information not nor- mally available to native peo- ple from other media channels. Both the Kainai News, start- ed m 19G3, and Blackfoot radio, formed in 1969, incorporated as the Indian News Media in Aug- ust, 1970. Neither currently sells much advertising as a source of in- come, Advertising, however, is be- iing considered as a source of revenue to help ride the cur- rent money problem, Mrs. Bly said. She said advertising hasn't txjcn the source of revenue that it could Ixj because the organi- zation wants to wait "until tho people get adjusted to the role of communication" which staff members are currently empha- sizing. The original budget was to cover the cost of expansion, in- cluding videotape equipment and money for a downpaymeril on a INM building. called for tho news- paper to become weekly in order to provide more compre- hensive service to native peo- ple and to enhance future ad- vertising, she said. Blackfoot radio also wants to extend the 15 minute weekly slots it pnys for on three com- mercial stations: CHEC, CJOC and CFAC. Mrs. questions why tho sUtions charge for the time, because the program is a pub- lic sen-ice, but adds, "They've got their expenses too, I guess." Neither form of Indian media always paints a rosy picture of reserve and Indian life. Both levy criticism and are in turn criticized by the Blood band council for doing so. Cartoons by assistant editor Everett Soop most often show current situations as they real- i Jy exist, she said. One hundred fifty adults and children shared in the fun and music of the Community Sum- mer Program's production of Summer Fun Thursday night in the Yates Memorial Centre. Nineteen children ranging in age from five to II years old en t ert allied the crowd wit h puppet scripts written or adapt- ed by themselves, and five of their favorite songs. The youngest portrayed the three little pigs and the big bad who "blow out bis while the others adapted Han- sel and Gretei and Dr. Seuss' Norton Hatches the Egg for Hand puppets. Four children succeeded in writing and presenting their own stories of The Hare and the Monkey, and How Wilber the Fox Learned to Hibernate. All of the bright-colored pup- pets and scenery were hand- marie by the children during their eight-week session of pup- pet workshops. Seven boys and girls from the music program of the Commu- nity Summer Programs accom- panied themselves on hand- made instruments for their presentation of I'd Like to Teach the 'World to Sing, and three entertained with an ac- tion version of Chilly Chitty Bang Bang. The older puppeteers at- tempted the art of string pup- petry in Punch and Judy and Winnie the Pooh, and despite "unforeseen technical difficul- ties" when the curtain back- drop fell down, succeeded. The puppetry workshop lead- ers are Kathy Zasadny, David Mann and Mandy Wilkinson. Leaders of the music program are Wendy Burrows and Ruth Ann Smith. Today is the final day for most of [lie Community Sum- mer Program activities. The University of Lethbridge ias appointed Lyiree Pohle as coordinator of information sor- i-ices.
