Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRID6E HERALD Saturday, February 1, 1975 Standard written Blackfoot goal of two-day linguistic session A standard writing system for the Blackfoot language was the aim of a two day conference at the University of Lethbridge Thursday and Friday. It should be achieved within two years, one participant told The Herald. Russell Wright, who works on curriculum at Old Sun Com- munity College in Gleichen, sard discussion centred on the English alphabet, rather than a form of syllables. Leo Fox, a conference organizer, said the language was oral in the past. Much written Blackfoot has been done by out- side linguists, and by Blackfeet using English letters and "try- ing to get the sounds right." A second session will be held March 15. In the meantime, participants will convert any written material they have into an agreed on system, and further dis- cussion will take place, he said. Mr. Wright said myths and history will probably form the bulk of the material. There has long been a neejl for a standard method of writing Blackfoot, he said. One problem in education has been teaching younger people to read and write it. "Some of our words are he adds. A person reading a long paragraph, sentence, or even word in Blackfoot may have to work from the back to identify a key section, then start reading from the beginning, he said. Mr. Fox said the Blackfoot, Blood and Peigan reserves were represented, and the Blackfoot tribe in Montana express- ed interest but did not send a representative. Rev. Maurice Gautier of Calgary, who has worked among the Blackfoot and other Indian groups, said it's important that the Indians evolve language studies in their own culture. Linguists and missionaries studying their languages essen- tially look in from outside the culture, he said. After Blackfoot speakers standardize their writing, then will come the time for outsiders to offer their help and suggestions. When outsiders first attempted to establish the structure of Indian languages, they ran into problems. A practical-minded Indian could not admit the possibility of a theoretical verb such as "I am sleeping" or "I have because a person dead or sleeping can not speak, said Father Gautier. VVIP's? They get cars What's the difference between a VIP and a VVIP? "Everyone knows the prime minister, the governor general and the lieutenant governor of Alberta are explains Dennis O'Connell, protocol boss for the Canada Winter Games. Provincial premiers or their stand-ins are also Very, Very Important Persons, he adds. "But what do you do about deputy ministers from provinces aero? Canada?

Phone 327-1871 Games protocol committee has- spent 12 months ranking some 300 dignitaries expected to flood Lethbridge for the of- ficial opening of the Games. In practical terms, the difference between a VIP and a VVIP is the length of the red carpet to be rolled out by the Games. VVIPs like Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Lougheed will be met at Kenyon Field by Games president Charles Vir- tue and Lethbridge Mayor Andy Anderson and escorted to the best rooms at VIP Village, the Holiday Inn. Provincial first ministers will be met at the airport by Games hostesses and ushered to private, crested Games cars piloted by volunteer drivers. Brass from Quebec and New Brunswick will get bilingual treatment from hostess qui parlent en deux langues. But VIPs are a different story. They will be met at the airport, but will ride to the Holiday Inn in buses. During Games action, their trips afield will be made not in crested Games cars, but in buses. VIPs and VVIPs will be herded together before the of- ficial ope.ning at the Sportsplex at a reception in the library at Lethbridge Community College. The reception, explains protocolist O'Connell, is not an effort by Games people1 to stand on ceremony. Rather, it's a way of collecting all the visiting dignitaries in one place to speed opening ceremonies. Games protocolists are charged with the duty of keep- ing dignitaries busy. He expects little difficulty with VVIPs familiar with the pomp and circumstance of such events as the Winter Games. The most sensitive people, he says, "are lower echelon people who think they are important." These people may demand a car and driver from the Games, but they'll have to be happy with a bus seat. Most visiting dignitaries will be travelling with their wives. Will Margaret accom- pany the prime minister? "I don't know I'm not being coy, but we really don't Mr. O'Connell replies. Escapee gets six months A 24 year old Vancouver man who pleaded guilty to es- caping from custody while be- ing escorted into provincial court Thursday was sentenced in the same court Friday to six months in jail for the es- cape. Frank O'Quinn was apprehended near Medicine Hat Thursday afternoon after RCMP received a complaint that a man fitting Mr. O'Quinn's description bought some gas at Turin without paying for it.' Mr. O'Quinn will appear in provincial court Wednesday to face a charge of theft of an automobile. At the time of his escape Mr. O'Quinn'allegedly drove off in a car that had been left running. It was park- ed near the courthouse. Mr. O'Quinn is scheduled to appear in Medicine Hat provincial court Feb. 6 for a preliminary hearing on a possession of stolen automobile charge. He was being taken to Lethbridge court on this charge when he escaped. Benjamin Arthur Shaw, 21, Lethbridge, was sentenced in Edmonton provincial court Friday to eight months in jail after pleading guilty to two charges of possession of stolen property. Mr. Shaw was charged with being in possession of a camera and tripod stolen from McCready Baines Pharmacy, 614 3rd Ave. S., Jan. 23. The items were stolen after a front window of the store was broken. Mr. Shaw was also charged with being in possession of ladies' rings stolen from Eaton's of Lethbridge. The camera and tripod had a value greater than as did the rings. Donald' Allan Cook, 21, of Lethbridge had the passing of sentence suspended for 16 months after pleading guilty to being in possession of the camera and tripod stolen from McCready Baines.

In a telephone interview from his Brooks business, the Bow Valley MLA said he met Premier Peter Lougheed Fri- day morning in a last-ditch ef- fort to gain provincial recognition for the school, 55 miles northeast of Brooks. Federal Immigration Minister Robert Andras has advised Cow Camp teacher Jeff Smith, an American fac- ing immediate deportation, that the school for troublesome adolescents re- quires provincial recognition before immigration officials can give Mr. Smith landed im- migrant status. Mr. Mandeville said his meeting with Premier Lougheed brought a promise from the premier he would br- ing the matter up with Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development. "The premier said any phone call to Mr. Andras would have to come from the minister responsible, Mr. Crawford." Mr. Mandeville met later Friday with the health minister, after his meeting with the premier. "Crawford said he would take a real good look at Cow Camp's program if Mr. Andras will first straighten out the immigration Mr. Mandeville said. "One thing he (Mr. Craw- ford) did admit is that he's riot really in opposition to the program But he figures it's Andras' job to figure out the immigration problem." Mr. Mandeville said Cow Camp teacher Smith will probably not be deported im- mediately, although a stay of deportation proceedings ex- pired Friday. "I imagine it will be a few days before they get involved with a deportation order." The Bow Valley MLA said MP Jack Homer has been re- quested to relay the province's stand on Cow Camp to Mr. Andras. Health Minister Crawford has refused to approve the school, repeating that respon- sibility rests. with Ottawa. Federal authorities, on the other hand, have repeatedly handed the ball back to the province by denying landed immigrant status for the 32- year-old American teacher until Alberta indicates Cow Camp is free to operate in the province. The camp, founded two years ago by Academix Inc. on the Vee Bar Vee Ranch near Wardlow, provides counselling, camping, classes and ranchwork for problem students.
