Cardston MIA Alvln Bullock, right d few. 1 Off-reserve education said better for Indians CARDSTON The federal government has moved to pro- vide increasing off-reserve ed- ucation for native students be- cause top instructors and facil- ities are not available for re- serve schools, says Cardston MIA Alvin Bullock. Mr. Bullock, speaking to about 150 persons Friday in the Blood Reserve's Senator Glad- stone Hall, said the govern- ment intended to give Indian children exposure to good schools and instructors, advan- tages the children have not had before. i "I pressured for this move so your children would have the same educational opportunities as he told the gather- ing. He said since the off-reserve program was instituted, more than student days had been completed by native stu- dents attending schools in the Cardston School District. He contended it .was a let- down that the government re- :d a section in the re- written Alberta School Act which would have allowed In- dian representation and voting power on school boards. The section, applying to dis- tricts where Indians attended school, was withdrawn at the prompting of the Indian Asso- ciation of Alberta for what Mr. Bullock termed as "reasons never really clarified." He said he told Blood counci members they, had let every- one down when they did noi ask for representation on a school board. In answer to a question from a Blood education committee member Howard Beebe, Mr Mlock said school boards are remiss if they have native stu dents attending hi then- distric and don't invite Indian parents ,o sit on then- board.

He said the industrial pro- duction on the reserve was very gratifying. "The business jeople on the reserve will have ;o rely on outside people to buy Jieir product. Education is he said. "The time is coming rapidly when we must build a student with capacities capacities which will be sold in the world like manufactured products." Mr. Bullock said the Indian should keep the reserve as long as it is needed. "It should, in any case, be used as a laucnh- ing pad for the children of the reserve." He said with improved edu- cation the native people will begin to fill important places in society in increasing num- bers. He said he has even sug- gested to Premier Harry Strom that an Indian representative from north and south Alberta would be good for the Alberta legislature. Sniffing draws concern In recent weeks glue sniffing has become a major concern to the Lethbridge poEce depart- ment. In one week alone 15 juve- niles were taken to the police station because they had been caught sniffing glue. The term glue sniffing refers to the .inhalation of any of sev- eral different household chem- cal solvents. The most common- ly of these solvents is polysty- rene or plastic model glue. Other solvents used include: fingernail polish remover, lighter fluid and cleaning fluids, paint and varnish re- mover and gasoline. All of these solvents contain volitale organic compounds, which readily vapourize at room temperature. All of the solvent vapors dis- solve readily in the fatty tis- sues of the body including the brain and nerve tissues. The first effects of these va- pors appear to be stimulation of the senses, the main effect however, is a depression (slow- ing) of all activities, particu larly of the nervous sytem. The end result is dizziness, a type of drunkeness a--.i csafcision. Tests have indicated contin ual use of the vapors could cause damage to the centra nervous system, liver, kidney and bone marrow. Temporarj damage has been noted afte every use. The glue sniffers do not seem aware of the damage they are doing to themselves or the haz- ards they create, said one po- lice official. The possibility of permanent mental and physical harm should act as a strong enough deferent, but if that is not enough said the offical, consid- er the problem created by a group of glue sniffers in a closed room. The vapors from these solvents are .highly ex- plosive particularly if the users are experimenting with open containers of the liquid solvents, one spark, even a burning cigarette could result in an -explosion which could se- riously injure or kill the snif- fers, or innocent bystanders and start a fire.

More preventive enforcement Fire bylaw on council agenda The updating of Lethbridge's fire bylaw and the possibility of adopting the National Fire Code of Canada, will be one of the main items of discussion at city council's regular meet- ing Feb. 8. The proposal to adopt the new fire code came as a result of supposed inadequacies in the old city fire bylaws. City manager Tom Nutting says the new code provides for a greater amount of pre- ventative enforcement not only to older structures but to ori- ginal construction as well. Some of the differences be- tween the old city fire bylaw and the proposed bylaw in- ude: In the past, the only permits sued in writing were for the retaliation of underground inks. Under the National Fire Foul play ruled in city man's death Instructor denies resignation Wayne C. Wayne, the Leth-j bridge Community College In- structor dismissed from his ap- pointment Friday, says he was wrongfully discharged and may take legal action against the college. "I did not tender a resigna- he said. "I simply gave notice that I would not accept a new contract." His existing contract as an assistant professor of com- munication arts would expire Aug. 31 this year. The difficulties began when 20 of Mr. Wayne's students visited Dr. C, D. Stewart, LCC president to complain of what they termed irrelevent course content and other class prob- lems. Mr. Wayne said there were 'only about five hard core students involved, who are just a vocal minority in my first- year classes." Because of the controversy evolving from the student com- plaints, Mr. Wayne sent the LCC board of governors a let- ter which states in part. "Since I have failed in my duty to teach the necessity of restraint and charity as ad- juncts to communication, it is fitting that I tender my resig- nation to the board In light of my obvious devotion to the development of the pro- gram I would appreciate the board's allowing me to stand with the first graduates of the course, and to fulfill my contractual obligations."
