Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Napi probes scorn Indians often face By MARGARET I.UNN llcrald News Service PINCIIER CREEK Dis- crimination and integration were the subjects of the Hot Scat Program, Red, While and Black, sonsored by the Napi Friendship Centre. More than 100 people were in attendance. Bill Mathcson of Lelhbridge, par ticipant, described himself as a WASP (While Anglo-Saxon Protestant) who had never felt discrimination. Ed Robinson, also of Lcth- bridge, had felt some in school as a youth. Rose Ycllowieel said she had, in Ihe matter of acquiring ho- tel accommodation. She said that when she lived on the re- serve she felt that all white people were against the native Trustees to study new money bylaw By ROSS GIBE Herald News Service TABER A money bylaw to provide building funds for the construction of a new Central Elementary School building will come before Taber School Di- vision's trustees at a meeting Monday, December 21. Decision to present the bylaw was reached Thursday when the trustees reviewed pro- gress toward the new structure for which is to be fi- nanced. Oanbrook council okays plan CRANBROOIC Immediate start on expropria- tion proceedings by the city solicitor was authorized when cily council unanimously gave final reading to a bylaw intro- duced a week earlier. The city requires 100-foot right of way for arterial road and particu- larly the trunk sewer and storm sewer to link North and South Second Streets via 20th Avenue. Expropriated properties are those of Mrs. William Ritter, 2002 South Second Street whose property depth at present lias brought a dead stop to the 20th Avenue link, and on the south side Mr. and Mrs. B. W. Mo- lander, 2125 South S e c o n c Street Both properties are in cily limils, of considerable frontage and classify as unde- veloped. Purchase offers made early in the summer on the basis o independent appraisals were not acceptable by either party However, the Municipal Act au- thorize expropriation, and un- der such circumstances ar- bitration of price by a three member board, one represent- ing purchaser, one the seller and a multially acceplable third party, with the arbitrated price agreement by two of these mandatory. Meeting with the board was architect John Holden of Cal- gary who was instructed to de- sign the school in such a man- ner that it will fall within the school foundation level of sup- )ort, so that no supplemental :osts will be required from the ratepayers of the division. In keeping with the deter- mination to keep costs at a minimum, the trustees re- versed a decision previously made that a 10 foot addition be made to the existing gymna- sium to which the new building s to be attached. The addition, according to Mr. Holden, will cost some 3er square foot, against which support is only The board felt that the extra space is not worth the extra cost involved in its pro- vision. Faced with the prospect of demolition of the old 60-year- old brick building, the board was a bit unhappy with the estimated cost of ?1 per square foot, which will add up for the three floors to about Also, on the basis of possible expenditure, the board de- ferred for at least three years negotiations toward the pur- chase of two privately owned properties on the Central School block owned by Waller K. Stone and Mrs. Olive John- son. In other school building busi- ness, the board was deeply con- cerned about reports of recent damage by vandalism at some of the schools, now under in- vestigation. The matter will come up for further considera- tion at the Dec. 21 meeting. No details of the damage.were re- leased pending completion of investigation. people, but in the 10 years she lias been oft the reserve she has found she has had lo change her altitude and persevere. She feels now that in most in- stances she is accepted. Reggie Newkirk's experience of discrimination didn't mani- fest itself until he was in ju- nior high, then he said it was very subtle. It was when he was in the U.S. Airforce that he openly met it in restaurants and public places. Newkirk hoped Canada would benefit by the U.S. ex- perience and would come to terms with racial problems be- fore they got out of hand. He hoped they could achieve their goals without violence. He won- dered if the white people would ever realize that the native people had something to offer socially and culturally. Questions and discussions from the floor came into play as the audience participated. The native people were not shy, but very willing to discuss their problems. One was that integration was oneway street, the natives com- ing the white man's way. They would like to see il reversed once in awhile. Discrimination i n employ- ment Was brought up. Qualified workers in construction were given the lowest jobs and pay. One native man gave an amusing simile of the fact lhat there was usually Indian sum- mer in the fall. The white man, he said took the big summer for himself and gave the smaller one to the Indian and again he said the Indian used to predict the weather and now Bill Malheson had taken thai from them. His remarks were greet- ed with applause. In summing up t h c evening it was felt that color and raco will have to be forgotten and all people thought of as humans before the wall can be broken down between the native peo- ple and the whites.
