Final exams for grade 12 to erta EDMONTON (CP) - Final exams for Grade 12 students will be all but eliminated in Alberta next year, Education Minister Lou Hyndman said Thursday. Beginning in the fall term this year, virtually every senior high school in the province will be able to assign final grades in all courses for all students. A total of 13 departmental exams are provided but grades in about 260 academic schools may award final grades in about 260 academic and vocational subjects. Final exams would be retained only for special purposes, such as satisfying student, appea Is, determining scholairship awards and meeting the needs of adult and private study candidates. School boards not prepared to complete the transition by this fall may apply for a year of grace. Mr. Hyndman said the adjustment to local accreditation from departmental examinations has been recommended by the high school and university matriculation examin ation board and the Alberta Teachers' Association, as well as in the Worth report on education.

Pat English of the ATA's provincial council, chairman of the curriculum committee, also responded favorably. "Our association . . . has been advocating this step for some time," she said. Marriage case issue Indians request UC minister's removal SADDLE LAKE (CP) - Action by the United and Anglican churches in support of the rights of an Indian woman who married a non-treaty Indian has resulted in the chief and council of the Saddle Lake Indian Reserve asking the United Church to remove its minister here. Chief Joe Cardinal said today a special meeting of the council Wednesday approved a resolution asking that the United Church' restrict its on-reserve activities to religion and not to "fool around" with the Lavell case. "The church is there for a purpose - religion - and we don't want them fooling around with this Lavell case," the chief said.

The case, to be heard later this month in the Supreme Court of Canada, has become the focus of attention by Indians across the country who consider the Ontario ruling ,a direct threat to the Indian Act under which they receive protection and special status. Both the Anglican and United churches have indicated support for Mrs. Lavell while the Roman Catholic church has remained silent on the issue. Chief Cardinal said there was considerable concern among the 70 Indian families who attended the United Church on the reserve that the' Roman Catholic Indians might believe the United Church's stand reflected their views. "This could cause a division among our people." Harvey Steinhauer, an Indian member of the United Church board on the reserve, said the church was there "to serve the Indians and yet they are fighting us on tins issue." "They are hypocrites and if they do not want to withdraw their support, then we want the minister to get off the re-serve." Officials of the Alberta Conference of the United Church, to whom the request was made, were not available for oonv ment.    1-2702 - 327-3610 A SAND GRAVEL ASPHALT T0LLESTRUP SAND AND GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE 32S-: curse removed CALGARY (CP) - A curse was placed on this city last summer after the Stampede Board excluded the David Crowchlld family_from the 1972 Indian village at the exhibition and Mayor Rod Sykes wants it removed. The mayor raised the issue early in January in a letter to stampede president George Crawford. "Dear George," he wrote. "You may be interested to know that a curse hangs over the city and that you are in a position to do something about it." DISTURBED "As the city begins a new year you may not be quite so concerned about the curse, but I do hope you are as disturbed as I am about the continuing slight on a proud and outstanding Indian family." He urged the board to reconsider its official attitude to the family and in a footnote added: "If you are unable to help in this matter, I shall have to approach the Sarcees to request that the scope of the curse be varied so as to affect only the Stampede Board and not the civic administration and other innocent parties. "You can also clear the impression that a dark cloud hangs over the Stampede and the city as a whole." Mr. Crawford said, in a reply to the mayor's letter, that "I'm afraid the lifting of Victoria Crowchild's curse is a matter that can only be dealt with by Victoria herself." The 1972 Stampede was the first in 24 years that a Crow-child teepee was not pitched in the Indian village. The family was excluded from the exhibition because it left the 1971 Stampede early without informing the Stampede Board. Victoria Crowchild, who placed the curse, said the family returned to the Sarcee reserve west of the ci;y because she had taken ill. She said permission to leave had been granted by the board. Late in January ,Ron Hall, chairman of the Stampede Indian Events Committee, wrote the Crowchilds inviting them to participate in the 1973 Stampede. He asked that the incident be forgotten. Mr. Crowchild, former Sarcee chief, said the family's return would depend upon an apology from Mr. Hall. Our lenses are But you'd mm know i! by Our rates are right.

The Canadian companies affected are: Pacific Western Airlines, Quebecair, Nordair, Wardair, Transair, Execaire Aviation, Great Lakes Airlines, Great Northern Aiways, International Jet Air, Midwest Airlines, Millardair, North Canada Airlines and Ontario Central Airlines. The CAB said the rule change, effective Feb. 16, is directed at Canada's "primary rights" policy that gives Canadian charter services the right of first refusal of a contract for which U.S. airlines might also compete. The CAB said Canadian airlines wiuch win such contracts must obtain advance approval of the CAB for each flight. CAB approval must be sought within two days after the Canadian carrier takes the contract and at least seven days before the flight. i iirda v Specials ("^ SIMPSONS Sears rS ftfe mmr | 2* flODc*?r j 0�' Egg cream shampoo $1.09 ea.2/$1..10 White Velvet Shampoo for the whole family 1714 oz. plastic bottle.
