Chief McDougal said the pro- xisal, commissioned by the Pei- an development committee, fould upset a current arrange- ment that permits individual In- ians to graze cattle free with and cattle. The plan would also be hin- ered by an Indian Act rule thai equires all money raised on the eserve to be cleared through rttawa, he said. HoTvever, Chief McDougal said the band council would take the plan back to the re- serve for consideration. The band council may con- sider the plan at a meeting Feb. 29, said band manager Henry Potts. Mr. Potts, a former member of the Peigan band council, said the development plan could be a "valuable first step" toward improved living conditions for tht Indians who live on the acre reserve east of Pincher Creek. "That community centre in the plan is badly he said. At present recreation activ- ities are held in the gymnasium of an elementary school at the Brocket based reserve or in a community hall "badly in need of repairs." People from the reserve (lo most of their shopping at Pinch- er Creek or Fort Macleod, he said. The two month, study paid for by the Indian affairs department, says "if the cattl and limber industries are dc veloped as recommended in the sludy, sufficient profit can bo made lo finance the construe tion and operating costs of D commercial cultural recrea tional building within a b o u three years, or by the fall o 1974." A square foot build ing would include: a store, laun dromat, barber shop, pool room band office, Indian affairs ol fice, public health office, indus trial and handicrafts room, li brary and lecture rooms. Tte total cost would also include construction of a 400 seat, ice arena. Skating surface would be nat ural ice, however, since the cos of an artificial ice making plan was not included.

The reserve has enough tim- ber to employ Indian loggers for three years, said the report. In 1974 contracts should be ar- ranged with Johnson Bros., a sawmill company, to keep the logging company wurking dur- ing 1975 and 1976, cutting tim- ber off the reserve. Chief McDougal said the re- port did not give enough con- sideration to access roads into reserve timber stands, and the logging operation will require more study. The report called for crea- tion of legally incorporated companies, responsible to Uie Peigan band council, to run both the logging company and the reserve ranch. The Peigan band ranch, the CY Ranch, began a major ex- pansion in 1966 and is current- ly one of the largest ranches in Alberta and (he major source of reserve revenue. The Stanley Associates report said Uie ranch must set out a five-year growth program, with month-tc-monlh objectives and an annual budget.
