Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD WldMtday, February AIM emphasizes working Svithin the system' CALGARY (CP) The name Ed Burnstick seems to crop up at virtually every militant Indian demonstration in North America from Wounded Knee, S.D., to Cache Creek, B.C. Mr. Burnstick is national di- rector for Canada of the American Indian Movement the best-known mili- tant Indian organization on the continent. But, despite the hostile rep- utation of AIM, Mr. Burnstick says the movement's main emphasis is on working within "the system." "People think about con- frontation when they talk- about said Mr. Burn- stick. "They don't know we. operate the biggest program in North America to rehabili- tate native people in prisons. "They don't know about all the work we do with native alcoholics, with native spiritu- alism, with milk programs for kids on reserves and reserva- tions." If AIM has a bad reputation with non-native society for its militancy, Mr. Burnstick of- fers no apologies. "People have to understand why native people are taking direct militant he said. "It Isn't something we started. It is an outgrowth of social conditions in both the U.S. and Canada." AIM was founded by five young natives as what Mr. Burnstick. calls "an alterna- tive to the government-con- trolled American Indian Con- gress." The Banks, Clyde Warrior, Clyde Belcourt, George Mitchell and Russell become well-known through various militant demonstrations. Mr. Banks and Mr. Means recently were acquitted of U.S. federal charges in con- nection with the Wounded Knee occupation in 1973 by a federal judge because of what he called "perjured evidence" from the government wit- nesses. "People see AIM only as the pow-pow-pow of a said Mr. Burnstick. "We also have survival schools for urban In- dians, prison programs, drug and alcoholism programs." Mr. Burnstick defended militant actions like Wounded Knee and the occupation of a park in Kenora, Ont., this year. "Conditions on Indian re- serves are terrible. In South Dakota people were living in abandoned cars because they couldn't get houses. "Wounded Knee drew the attention of white and native people to the Indian prob- lems. "Many of our own people are opposed to our actions. To us, it is necessary to pick up a gun when you've just had enough of the system." During a widely-publicized speech at the University of Calgary by Mr. Burnstick, only a dozen native people, most of them full-time univer- sity students, were in an au- dience of 200. "AIM is a unique thing for native said Mr. Burnstick. "They made it themselves. They had support from other people but they did it themselves. "The results are now being seen in government policy and public concern about native problems." There are nine AIM chap- ters in Canada, and about 000 members in Canada and the United States.

Eaton says a f 1 Canadian stamp with a lot of fish on it, minted in 1953, now sells for about An international stamp au- thority, he runs auctions at his [headquarters in Vancouver. "Anyone who started with a collection of stamps of good quality 20 years ago is bound to have something he said. "When I started in the busi- ness in 1937 it was possible to get a set of 1897 Queen Vic- toria Jubilee stamps for The same set of 15 in fine con- dition now is worth Col. Eaton said the pleasure of ownership and the search for material are what counts with the dedicated philatelist. Scarcity and fashion dictate the value of stamps. "Stamps of independent African countries issued since 1960 are definitely not in favor. SALES IN RETAIL QUANTITIES ONLY!
