Speaking ru a rally for the NDP candidate in the Pincher Creek Crowsncsl riding, Dr. Clarence Smilh. attended by about 125 people, Mr. Lewis said he had been iold by miners and oilier workers in the r.rca they have been "sub- jected to threatening words" about publicly supporting the X'DP, and even ahout voting in Monday's provincial election. "It makes me very he said. "Any corporation that thinks it can interfere with the rights of Canadians has no right to he in business." After the meeting, Mr. Lewis said he had Icsrned of Ihe intimidation oniy hours before, aid added he couldn't "be any move specific'' about the chrrges The NDP leader called on or- ganized labor to become politi- cally involved and to concern itself with more lhan just in- creasing wages.

The labcr movement was not established merely to raise workers' wages five or ten cents an hour, he said. It must concern ilself with broader so- cial and political issues. What's the good of achieving improved working conditions and wages if Ihe "heartless, cruel, massive unemployment" created by (lie Tralcau govern- ment deprives people of jobs? he asked. Mr. Lewis said there has been c. revival ul anti-labor feeling in Canada, pointing lo restric- tive labor legislation passed b.v the former Liberal government in Saskatchewan and recently repealed by the new NDP gov- ernment. "But ahovc all, the federal government has launched a campaign against labor, try- ing to convince the peop'e labor is responsible for the economic problems of Ihe country." Turning to the provincial elec- tion campaign, Mr. Lewis chr.rgcd large corporations are supporting the Conservatives to ensure the NDP won't take cnver.

Mr. Lewis stated (here is "not much lime left" to take action on crucial issues facing this coin.lry. He listed the Ihreat of absorption by the U.S., Ihe threatened conlincntal ic- sourncs policy, the danger of nuclear war, and pollution, as issues of vital concern to the NDP. Marijuana laws need change says federal NDP leader David federal leader of the New Democratic Party, refused Thursday t o commit himself en tno quesl.iun of le- galization of marijuana. However, he said possession of marijuana should be re- nioved from the Criminal Code because "it's nut goad to put young people in jail." But be would seriously ques- tion making marijuana avail- able to 10 and 12 year olds, he loid newsmen in Lethbridge. Asked to comment en a fed- eral committee report released Thursday proposing lhat the cultivation, sale and use of rr.'srijuana be legalized, Mr. Lewis said he hadn't read Ihe but it "sounds a little wild." If people are pcrmifled to cultivate and sell marijuana, its use will spread, he suggest- ed. Responding to a charge by Premier Slrnm thai ths N'DP would like lo see the Conser- vatives win the Alberta elec- tion Monday because the NDP thrive opposing a party of big business, Mr, Lewis said the premier was "talking through his hat." "Social Credit is just as much a party of big businesr as the Conservatives. are no longer a party cf the people. It doesn't matter whether Strom cf Lougheed wins." They serve Ihe same mas- ters, Mr. Lewio said. "They are lioth darlings of Ihe oil companies. It's nonsense to suggest (here is any duerence between them." Mr. Lewis said he did not an- ticipate a federal election this fall, unless Mr. Tnideau is "scared." But if tha-c is cue, the NDP will be icadj'. The polls show NDP support is climbing stead- ily across the country." The federal wing of the NDP is not helping Ihe party in Al- berta financially in the elec- tion, he said, but "we w-buld if we had the funds." He said there is nothing new about a federal leader cam- paigning in a provincial elec- tion because "we (the NDP) work as one team in Canada." the river will be considerablv cleaner.

Time bomV was created bv j integrated Indian education By HOB TURNER Staff Writer FORT MACLEOD Integra- led Indian education has created a time bomb on re- serves throughout northern On- frrio Ihe orientation conference for Indian teachers was told here Thursday. "Indian kids in the 16 lo 25 year old age bracket have re- turned lo their reserves after i several years of education in I white schools, too wise to trap and lish but not sufficiently equipped to make it in the while-man's Walter Ctirrie said. "As a result, when they re- turn home following their schooling, they just sit and sit and sit and one day all hell is going to break Mr. Cur- rie said. "The parents describe their children as he said. "They are unable lo survive in the city or on Ihe reserve." Mr Currie, an Ojibway In- dian horn in Chatham, is the recently-appointed director of the Institute of Indian Eskimo Kindles program at Trent Uni- versity in Peterborough, Ont. Prior to this, he was with Ihe Ontario department of educa- tion in charge of the operation of northern schools and also gave assistance to schools in remote areas. The way to defuse this lime bomb, according lo Mr., is lo realize lhal education is nol Ihe only key to the future for the Indian. The removal of Ihe native from welfare and the development of good housing are also extremely important. "Education is only one facet of the total social development which must tnke he said. "The Indian also has so- cial and emotional necxls which be met "The dcpcrlmcnt nf Indian af- fairs places the native students in a foreign environment but only looks r Her their physical well-being. They arc forgotten about after 4 p.m." Mr. CuiTic told Hie teachers that every' kid needs a hero. "II, must be lough to be an Indian child in school and have only white heroes." "True integrated education must, be a two-way street." Too often, however, it is "a slrcel in which Ihc arrows only poinl in one direction." lie suggested thai each class- room which has any number of Indian students in it should have a map of all lhc reserves in the province, a copy of the historic treaty which their fore- bearers signed, and a copy of the Indian Act. "When your students read the Indian Art, they will all become Red-power advocates, even the white he suggested. Countering the oft voiced complaint by teachers that In- dian parents won't come to the school when invited, Mr. Cur- rie said there were a number of reasons but the main one is "fear, because they don't know what's going on and they don't want to show their ignorance." Besides, "Why do you ask the parents lo come only wlien you have something negative to tell he asked. "Why not invite them to tell them something Indian education committees 'poor says leader FORT MACLEOD Educa- tion committees have existed on many Canadian Indian reserves for at least 15 years but still today their responsibilities rid with "cutting Llie grass, paint- ing the fence and cleaning (he outhouse." Waller Currie said here Thursday. Involvement in and responsi- bility for the educational pro- cess by Indian parents has not been permitted very long and most of them remain detached from it as they recall their not- too-pleasant experiences in the church-run residential schools of the 1930s and lilJOs, Jfr.
