Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE inHBRlDGE HERAID - Frrdoy, Doeembor 3. 1971 ^ - Plans under discussion for Jjify^Ydl Assumption School addition Sketch plans for a proposed $130,000 addition to Assumption School have been presented to the regular meeting of the Lethbridge separate school board. Lethbridge architect George Watson made a presentation of two pwssible floor plans. One called for a 6,000 - square-foot multiple - use area. The other called for construction of three classrooms, and had 604 square feet less usable space. "Both plans allow for future expansion of the school as needed, and the new addition does not interfere with tlie p 1 a y-ground," said Mr. Watson. Jerry Heck, principal of Assumption School, said the addition was necessary to relieve ah-eady - overcrowded conditions and give tlie school a place to put steadily growing enrobnent. Teacher reactions to the proposed addition floor plans were uncertain. Six teachers from Assumption were present and suggested they be given a chance to visit the open area at Agnes Davidson Elementary School and the multiple use area at St. Basil's School before they made a decision.

The special pilot project will involve a 90 - car imit train to be loaded in the near future with wheat at the Canadian Government Elevator in Saskatoon for shipment to Vancouver. Involved in the project are the Canadian Grain Commission, the Canadian wheat board, Canadian National Railways and Federal Grain Limited.

The facility is used for other bulk commodities, including potash, coal, phosphate rock and salt.

NORTH PHONE 328-4536 defeat unlikely Allen Sulatycky, parliamentary secretary to Energy Minister J. J. Greene, doesn't go along with analysts who predict a Liberal defeat in the next federal election. In an interview with tlie Herald, Mr. Sulatycky said at most the Liberal Party could lose 25 seats, leaving them in power with a minority government. He said although voting results can't be predicted, he is not willing to accept the view that people ai-e generally dissatisfied with the national government and will vote against it as they have done in recent provincial elections. Domg a brief analysis of his own, Mr. Sulatycky said there is no area in Canada where a Liberal defeat at the polls could contribute to the downfall of the part>'. A loss of the eight seats the Liberals hold in the Maritimes would be insignificant; most of the Liberal support in Ontario is in the cities and Mr. Sulatycky sees no indication of diminishing support there. Of the 11 Prairie seats, he sees only four in possible jeopardy. On another subject, the Member of Parliament from Rocky Mountain said reason has returned since the uproar following the National Energy Board rejection of natural gas exports. He said Albertans "want basically to feel that their resources are for their own immediate and future benefit." If further gas exports were allowed, "we set the price today for the next 10 to 20 years," he said. Another disadvantage to selling the gas now is the prospect of having to import it in the future, he said. The National Energy Board has established that Canada's cheap energy will be used for Canadian purposes first. ning rifle shot quickens blood By BILL HUNT With RUDY HAUGENEDEU Staff Writer MUSKIKI LAKE - Two rifle sliots rang aa-oss tlie mountains in the wee hours of the morning during my first niglit at Chief Robert Small Boy's wilderness camp. I jumped out of bed saymg, "it can't be, it can't be." Nobody could be out hunting this early in the morning - it's only 3:30.

Jim Wilson, Lethbridge Herald city editor, said the sensationalism surrounding the situation at Kehewin, Saddle Lake and Cold Lake reserves blurred the problems behind the strike. Speaking on the Napi Friendship Association hot seat in Pincher Creek, Mr. Wilson said son�e of the people involved In the strike did not even know what it was about. The strike did not present a united effort by the people involved, he said. The three reserves which participated are "not on speaking terms" with one another.

While in the strike area he was given a torn* of the trouble spots by an Indian leader who was a self - admitted militant. At various places along the tour route Mr. Wilson said the Indian guide pointed out, from a distance, problem areas while not actually going to the spot. Later Mr. Wilson visited the same spots on his own where Indians were allegedly suffering, to find no one Uved there. He explained that one reason for the strike stemmed from Indian reserve education system attitudes. Not only is the Indian education system inadequate but also education as a whole-Indian and white - is lagging behind society in development, h2 added. However, a full education, even with its shortcomings is necessary for the Indians if tbey are to progress or get jobs. It would be difficult to institute Indian language and culture courses into all reserve schools because of the differences among Indian tribes. Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien told Mr. Wilson earlier that money is available to finance special cultural and ed-ucsational projects where the native population and initiative are sufficient to warrant them. Culture is evolutionary and changes with the tames, Mr Wilson said. Because white society prevails, Indians must adopt changes to their culture when off the reserve. On the reserve, they have a right to live as they choose. Indian culture must continue to evolve, he said. Some of the old cultural strings must bo Youth Exhibition Board is involved in livestock show loosened to allow new ones to develop. Mr. Wilson said other minority gmi'ps in Canada retain much of their culture while fitting into sodety, and some of the techniques these people use could be applied by Indians. Where population warrants and distance to schools is not a factor, white and Indian students should attend each other's schools. Among changes suggested by Mr. Wilson was the elimination of refeiiences to Indians as savages in text books, on television and in films. The reference to Indians as savages has a negative effect on Indian youths who can develop inferiority complexes, and on white children who grow up expecting the Indians to be savages. He challenged Indian pai'ents to work harder in developing a pride in being Indi'an among their children. had been in labor and delivered an eight pound, seven ounce girl. Someone had ah-eady driven to Rocky Moimtain House to fill in the proper birth registration papers. And the baby looked as healthy as any I have ever seen. The baby's father, Jackson Roam, who has been with the band nearly a year, feels the group has accomplished everything it set out to do. "The children are happy and disciplined, quite a dif-fei-ence from tiie children you see drin'king elsewhere. But not here. Nobody staggers drunkenly about, steals or even swears," he said. "I'm sure we've found what we want." Jim Small Boy, the chief's son and a mechanic prior to joining the gi-oup says: "I like to fix machines . . . anything mechanical." The acting - mechanic for the group says be misses some of the faster-paced, more mechanically - oriented activities at the Hobbema i-e-sei-ve but claims the pleasures of life he finds living in the wUderness supercede anything on the resei-ve. Mrs. Dorothy Small Boy, one of the chief's daughters-in-law, is the mother of 11 children and one foster child. She says the main reason she left Hobbema was to provide a better life for her children. She admits it was pretty rough living in the mountains at first but now she wouldn't trade it for anything. "We're really ba.ppy out here," she said. Among the things most obviously absent in this ai'ea are television sets, and they are what are missed most by the people. However, the modem comforts do not compai-e with the natui^al beauty ind cleanliness and the co-operative spirit of family life. Just as the spirit of Canadian nationalism is growing, so is there pride developing among the Indians. A band membei-, formerly of the Sarcee reserve near Calgary said he left that reserve because he wanted to learn more about his native culture. Indian culture, he claimed, "had died out quite a bit," at his reserve. He attributes the success of the wilderness experiment to Chief Small Boy, who is "a very wise leader and respected by everyone." "A free and happier life." Time after time those wa-e the words used to express the camp's life style. Some admit they occasionally think of the modem-com-foi-ts of the reserve they have left behind, but say they won't return. Rick Yellow Bird, a former warehouse supervisor in Edmonton, who is married to the With 13 new members, the Youth Exhibition Board is working in close co-operation with the Lethbridge and District Exhibition for the Rocky Mountain Livestock Show and Sale. Doug Hudson, representing the Youth Exhibition Board, told the parent body's aimual meeting the youths hope for an expanded program during the coming summer fair also. He said the youth board wants to have an opportunity to use one night during the fair to present some activities during the grandstand time, actually replacing the regular show. Mr. Hudson said the three paint - ins held prior to the opening of the 1971 summer fail- were well - received and started the public and participants thinking about the fair. He said the youth board would tWs year help witli the bandstand orchestra program and would like to present another coffeehouse. The coffeehouse didn't make money, but was constantly full, indicating it's popularity. He said the best project was the Youth - a - Rama Building. "People caught on to the idea of spendmg money to get money out of their booths." ha said. Most of the booths were operated by local busine.ssas.

The Lctlibridgc Herald Printing and Lithographing DIVISION HERALD BUILDING 5th Avenue Entrance Opposite the Downtown Car Parkade band's only white inhabitant said his family had to sacrifice many material things to move to the wilderness. His wife Karen, like her husband, doesn't enjoy city life. "This might be a little hard to come across, marrymg an Indian person and moving out here into a tent and learning how to cook," she said. "But it's peaceful and there's nothmg to compete wiUi. In the city there's always sometliing ... if you don't dress m the latest fashion you're looked down upon." She found adjusting to washing clothas on a washboard and other household chores done differently by city wives a litUe difficult at first, but has learned from the Indian women here at camp. Her husband gleamed happily, stating she has now "learned to cook." However, Karen feels this way of life is the right way for her. She wants her child to gi-ow up "the right way, at the camp." An old man who left Hobbema with the original group says he came to "find the reality of life." He said he had belonged to various religious denominations but became disillusioned with the rivahy between them. Each denomination, he said, put up barriers against the other, although th^ all use the same book of worship. "This is not God," he says. "Out here I can pray and talk to my creator directly," without outside interference. He feels churches operate usuig the same principles of big business: "Money, money, money." "Here I can pray and feel free. Under tlie wWte church system I am a heathen because I happen to be an Indian. "Out here you discover the real God and learn to consider others, not just yourself."
