Blood Reserve program New social development project set By HIC S1VIHART Herald Staff Writer STANDOFF The new so- cial development program on the Blood Indian Reserve is expected to be in operation by mid-January. Marvin Fox, director of the program, said resident training for the five staff members is continuing and the counselling program will start in conjunc- tion with the full-time opera- tion of Kainai Industries Ltd., about Jan. 15. As director of the program, Mr. Fox will be responsible for exposed to as many of the co-ordinating the various de- problems as possible. Roy Fox is the attendance partments within the program. Choice of drama chairman expected early in 1971 Choice of a chairman for the University of Lethbridge's pro- posed new drama department is expected in late February or early March, says Dr. Owen Holmes, head of a six-iran jommittee studying candidate applications. The position will continue to be advertised in national and international journals, up to Jan. 15. Interviews with candidates will be held in Feb- ruary. Dr. Holmes, dean of arts and science, said the successful candidate will probably be the only member of the depart- ment during its first semester next fall. The chairman during that time wilJ plan facilities, pro- gram and personnel, plus offer cne or two courses. Dr. Holmes said he expected It would take two or three years for the department to develop into a full-scale opera- tion. He indicated there was "no spare room" in the first phase of the new university campus for the drama department, and it would probably be planned for the second phase, expected to be completed in 1974. Dr. Holmes said he would like to see the university have a fine arts centre, for drama, music and art departments. About 12 applications have been received so far for the drama chairmanship.

LADIES' WEAR i I I I S SHOPPERS' WORLD He has just returned from Bos- ton, Massachusetts, where he viewed a program of opportu- nities for industrial centres in the poverty areas. "The thinking is much the same and here on the reserve, we will be using the housing plant as a stimulus to people to get them to he said. "We will work closely wiih the plant, welfare department, recreation, schools and other departments in the tribal ad- ministration. "The social development pro- gram will be used to recruit, motivate, train and find full- time employment for untrained and undertrained and unem- ployed reserve residents. A big part will be to keep maximum employment on the reserve." He said positions of nurse counsellor, alcoholic counsel- lor, attendance counsellor and two home visitors are filled by Blood Indian residents. "These people will work with the employees of Kainai In- dustries in the inital stages to lay the groundwork for the pro- gram and then the principles developed will be applied to the entire reserve community in an attempt to cope with the welfare problem existing on the he said. Miss Rhonda King, a regis- tered nurse, is now on staff at Kenwood House in Edmonton, an alcoholism centre, learning how to effectively counsel fam- ilies and individuals. Her job will deal with alco- holic problems and the health and welfare of the families employed at the housing plant. She will also visit families to ensure the head of the house doesn't have to miss work due to illnesses of family members. Eventually, this portion of the program will have to be expanded to include all the families on the reserve.

He will work close- ly with Mr. Kraeme.r, looking into reports of absence. Mr. Fox said if the absence if caused by a living problem, one of the other team mem- bers from the program will be called in to give the necessary counselling to stabilize the working pattern of the person involved. Doreen Rabbit and Florence S'co'ut will work as the home visitors, visiting the home of the workers to instruct the young wives in home care, giving noirtters on such things as cooking, health and sanita- tion. The two women have com- pleted home economics courses in Edson, Alta, and have work- ed with a pilot project in Ed- monton dealing with home eco- nomics. The social development pro- gram is based on a sociological and anthropological theory that stressing improvement in only one facet of personal living is not enough to break the de- structive grip brought on by living hi a sustained welfare system. Using theoretical guidelines aimed at developing a total person, the program will re- volve around seven major areas of development cul- tural, recreational, educa- tional, spiritual, economics, health and family living. As the program develops, additional members of staff will be hired to fulfil the social development concept, expected to be in full operation in two years.
