The initial native participation in tlie first major reserve Intelligence and covers Kraemer, there is a false stigma in Canada occurred in By LARRY BEXNETT Staff Writer A H ol fl en. Alia, man rep- resented by Lethbridge lawyer! Roman Scholdra has been awarded slightly more than in damages for injuries he suffered while he was a political prisoner in Germany during the Second World War. Mr. Scholdra said his client, WilJiam Wasylashko, 57, originally from the Ukraine, had been held as a prisoner from November 1933 to April 19-15, when he was liberated by American forces. The legal action against the government of the German Federal Republic was permitted by Germany's Federal Restitution Act, which was established after the war to allow German citizens to receive payment for damages they had suffered during the regime of Adolph Hitler. The restitution act was amended in 1951 to allow non-German nationals the privilege of reeking payment for damages they had suffered during the Nazi regime. During his captivity In Germany, Mr. Wasylashko was forced IB work as a laborer on farm near Proetzier in central Germany. He was paid or hospital was available in the camp. A transfer to Buchenwald con-conecntration camp followed Mr. Wasylashko's arm injury. While undergoing a disinfecton treatment required for all new arrivals he passed out and remained uiiconscious for two weeks. He was kept in the hospital for three months. While in the hospital he was attended by a Czech doctor who was also a prisoner in the ramp. He was forced to work tn a stone quarry when he was released from the hospital. Mr. Wasylashko was unable to use his left arm, so he attempted to handle only rocks that he could carry in his right hand. He attempted to a rock he could not lift and tried lo roll it. A camp guard saw him attempt to roll the rock rather than lift it. and smashed his left wrist against the rock with a club. The injuries to his wrist caused bv the blow resulted in the eventual complete disintegration of all of his wrist bones. Another term in hospital followed and he was assigned to the camp shoe factory upon his release. He had been a shoemaker before he was submitted to them be translated into German, including a German transcription of Mr. Wasylashko's Canadian citizenship certificate. Tlie first application for damages was rejected by the German authorities in 1967 on the ground that as a Ukrainian patriot. Mr. Wasyl'ashko had constituted a threat to the German state and he was not entitled to claim damages. That decision had to be appealed. Following considerable additional paper work. Mr. Scholdra travelled, in 1968. to Germany and under special leave of the court was allowed to represent his client in person and argue tlie case before the German Appeals court specifically designated to hear such cases. The appeal was allowed, but the court decided further investigations were necessary. Herman Bleckmann, an official of the German consulate in Edmonton said in a telephone interview that was an unusual situation when a foreign lawyer appears in person in a German court to represent a client. "The foreign lawyer usually works with a German lawyer as his he said. "To understand the born with a defective wrist and even questioned the auth entitity of Mr. Wasylashko's prisoner's card from both con centratioa camps suggesting he had forged (lie card. The entire matter was again left buried in legal red tape and paper work until 1971, when Mr. Scholdra again travelled to Germany to finalize the matter in a tearing at Cologne, Nov. 30. Tlie hearing resulted in tlie conviction of the German Federal Republic bv a judgment dated Dec. 21, 1971. Reaching the settlement took 10 years, and for seven of them Mr. Scholdra carried out a steady stream of correspondence in with the authorities and the court, translated documents from English and Ukrainian to German, arranged several medical examinations and travelled to Germany twice. Scholdra said the amount awarded hy the court was only 39 per cent of the maximum his client might have been entitled to receive, but the court ruled Mr. Wasylashko had been born with a defective wrist. In addition to the cash award for damages, the court awarded Mr. Wasylashko a lifetime pension of about S106 per month to be paid by the German and experience of the topic. According to psychologists, only five to 10 per cent of the human mental potential is achieved. The purpose of TM is to provide a method of tapping this latent energy and intelligence. Accomplishing this was not previously possible with such a practicable technique. Almost unlimited expansion is possible. Transcendental meditation is unique in its simplicity there is no control, concentration or contemplation involved. The system makes use of the natural tendency of the mind to go to a field of greater happiness and fulfillment. Its use is intensely practical is applicable to all areas of life and creates the attitude necessary for more efficient enjoyable dealings with life. TM gives rise to a quiet inner sense of peace and energy, and the deeper understanding of oneself causes a corresponding empathy with other persons. Sensory perception is noticeably increased and clearer, more logical thinking is experienced. The student finds his ability to solve problems is enhanced, because his discriminatory ability is of Kainai Industries says the absenteeism among the 70-plus production line workers at the prefabricated house plant here, is less than 5 per cent. The staff turnover rate is also lower than it is at other plants which do not exclusively use Indian labor. And the workers are proud of the "liigh quality" homes they are constructing for sale across Western Canada. It has been slightly more than a year since a handful of management personnel came in to train Indian workers who had no experience in the assembly line type of work required to construct the homes. At was an absenteeism problem, but the native workers gradually adopted new work habits until they developed into the strong and steady force they are now. The workers are building one house per day, and production is expected to he stepped up to two per day as soon as weather conditions improve to the point where western Canadian contractors can again start building foundations to support the structures. Although no financial figures are available for press to houses built by Indians, which could result in fewer sales. The rapid molding of Kainai Industries into a highly-effi-c i e n t industrial production plant has exceeded he said. To support his comments, Mr. Kraemer pointed out that similar types of industries developed elsewhere always have a bulk of experienced labor available when production begins. In Standoff operations began "fresh" with few seasoned wcrters in that field available. The distribution and sale of Kainai's finished product is in new hands now HaiCo Manufacturing of Lethbridge. Combined with the federal economists' reports, a new imaginative and far-reaching marketing plan is currently being implemented and developed, hdian workers at the plant, who receive the going when HaiCo Manufacturing Ltd. a privately owned company Red Crow Developments the economic development wing of the Blood reserve, signed an agreement for the construction of a million, square foot prefab housing manufact u r i n g plant here. Under the terms of Hie agreement, Red Crow financed and owned the fixed assets of the HaiCo provided million for operating capital as well as management and management training, for an even-1 tual takeover by Indians.
