Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Dateline Alberta INew warden appointed Blue-collar workers in short supply EDMONTON (CP) J. D. MacDonald will become warden at the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Institute Sept. 11, the provin- cial government announced Wednesday. Mr. MacOonald will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Raymond Desrochers, who joined the Canadian Penitentiary Ser- vice. A member of the Manitoba Criminological Society and the Canadian Congress on Corrections, he also has work- ed closely with the John Howard Society, Elizabeth Fry Society, National Parole Service, Canada Manpower and the Fortune Society. W. C. J. Lake, acting warden at Fort Saskatchewan for the last nine months, will resume his former duties as deputy warden, the govern- ment announcement said. EDMONTON (CP) Man- power Minister Bert Hohol donned the traditional blue workshirt Wednesday to help kick off a campaign to attract more young Albertans into the trades. "An acute shortage of skill- ed tradesmen to support Alberta's growing industrial base is a major concern to the provincial tne minister told a news conference. He added that one of the most pressing areas is the construction industry, with current shortages worst in the pipe-fitting, welding and carpentry trades. To increase the supply of skilled men and women, the government will examine the possibility of shortening train- ing programs, provided this does not tike place at the ex- pense of quality, he said. The two month campaign to attract more tradesmen will cost the Alberta govern- ment about making it the most expensive publicity campaign undertaken by the provincial bureau of public af- fairs. "The campaign theme, Blue is Rewarding, was selected for several Dr. Hohol said in a news release. "Foremost among them was to focus attention on the blue collar worker who has made a significant contribution to development in this province." The minister pointed out that Alberta has made a "sizeable contribution" to the development of an appren- ticeship program. "Although the province has only 7V2 per cent of Canada's population, it has been respon- sible for training 20 per cent of its apprentices." He said the government will encourage the training of apprentices in the province's composite high schools. It is intended to give them full recognition for at least one year of apprenticeship if students have taken their trade in high school. r" Mother ruled insane EDMONTON (CP) A 31- year-old woman charged with attempting to murder her two children was found not guilty by reason of insanity in a Supreme Court hearing Wednesday.

RCMP conducts internal probe into boy's death CALGARY (CP) RCMP at Calgary and Strathrrrore are conducting an internal investigation into allegations that two police officers at the Strathmore detachment refus- ed to give medical aid to a dy- ing boy Aug. 18. The Albertan says the com- plaint was filed in connection with the death of Donald Siemens of Nightingale who was injured in a single vehicle truck accident near his home town, 11 miles north of Strathmore. Danny Hendricks, 20, of Strathmore and Elaine Lausen, 17, came upon the ac- cident scene and were asked to take the injured boy to a doctor or to a hospital. They drove to Strathmore but the town's doctor was not in his office. The two took the boy to the RCMP station but two con- stables on duty said they were under orders not to leave the office. Mr. Hendrieks said he told the officers that the boy was badly injured and that he was bleeding from the head. The officers, he said, did not go outside the police office to look at the boy. Mr. Hendricks said he took the injured boy to hospital in Calgary after the officers refused assistance. The boy died 22 hours later of a skull fracture. An RCMP spokesman said he could not comment on the matter until the internal investigation is completed.

EDMONTON (CP) Budget cutting by the federal department of Indian affairs in educational spending is bringing on massive drop outs among native students, native spokesmen say. Harold Cardinal, president of the Indian Association of Alberta, says the department should be increasing funds, not reducing them, to better prepare Alberta natives for the resource development about to mushroom around them. "If this (budget cutting) is done by officials in Ottawa, they are certainly not aware of the situation in Alberta where we face an expanding economy crying out for an ex- panded and stable labor Mr. Cardinal said in an interview. "Unless they have decided to keep Indians on welfare for decades to come, then they're on the wrong track." Stan Redcrow, chairman of the Athabasca Saddle Lake Indian School Division, predicted that more than half of the 300 students on the Sad- dle Lake Reserve in northwest Alberta will stop attending school because of the government's decision to reduce spending on school facilities, curriculum enrichment, student allowances, maintenance in private homes and adult education. D. W. Simpson, associate director of Indian affairs' educational branch, said in a telephone interview from Ot- tawa that budget cuts were department wide and that for education the reductions amounted to absorbing a million deficit from the last fiscal year. Officials in Ottawa "feel badly" about the cuts, he said but he doubted the situation is as serious as Mr. Cardinal in- dicates. E. J. Dosdall, assistant director of education for the Alberta region, said the budget cut in the province amounts to about out of a budget of Mr. Cardinal said Indians took a lead balloon view of TRICK SHOT FAILS TAMPA.
