Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 13, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 Indians and Eskimos upset over Mackenzie Valley pipeline Has federal gov't already made up its mind about claims? OTTAWA (CP) Indian and Eskimo organizations in the Northwest Territories, angered by weekend statements by Northern Af- fairs Minister Judd Buchanan, said Sunday they were uncer- tain whether to continue legal arguments based on land claims against the proposed Mackenzie Valley natural gas pipeline. "Has the federal govern- ment already decided what it set up the Berger commission to asked the Northwest Territories Indian Brotherhood and Inuit Tapirisat (Eskimo Brotherhood) in a joint news release. The reference was to hearings to begin March 3 by Mr. Justice Thomas Berger of the British Columbia Supreme Court on an application by Canadian Arctic Gas Pipelines Ltd. for a right-of- way through the Canadian North for the line which is to deliver Alaska and Mackenzie Delta gas to southern Canada and the United States. The natives say the line should not be built until their land claims are settled. .Judge Berger is to deter- mine the social, environmen- tal and economic impacts the pipeline might have on Northern Canada and also to recommend what conditions the federal government might impose in granting such a right-of-way. In Yellowknife Friday, Mr. Buchanan set up a federal- territorial study group to con- sider proposals by three ma- jor oil companies that want to install feeder lines if the pipeline is approved. Mr. Buchanan said that, Reynolds is men-watchers favorite LOS ANGELES (AP) "Bottoms are tops. Slim, trim, curved ones are what women notice." says the pres- ident of Man Watchers Inc., an organization devoted to the study of the male physique. Suzy Mallery says that a survey of her members shows women notice men's buttocks more than any other male physical characteristic. The next most-noticed aspects of the male physique are chests, hands and' posture, she says. Man Watchers' list of the 10 most beautiful men for 1974 is headed by actor Burt Rey- nolds, voted tops by organization members for his "animal magnetism, mascul- inity, sense of humor and great good looks from top to bot- tom." Others on the list are actor Alan Alda, "low- key naturalness and subtle ac- tor Jack Nicholson, "killer smile and cobra tennis star John Newcombe, "exciting body actor Cleavon Little, "satin- smooth bearing and catlike ac- tor Robert Redford, "traditionally hand- some in the classic South Africa sextuplets not rich yet CAPE TOWN (AP) South Africa's sextuplets have not won the fame and fortune their parents expected when they were horn a year ago. "I'm very, very disap- pointed and am struggling to support my Colin Rosenkowitz, 40-year-old father of the six children, said Sunday. "I have nothing in my pocket to show for the original enthusiasm of companies here. Had the trip to America taken place it would have changed the whole picture." The Rosenkowitzes had planned to take their sex- tuplets to the United States last week to promote advertis- ing and promotional fees, but the trip was cancelled. while the proposal is to be made known to Judge Berger, "it is not my intention to refer this application to the (Berger) inquiry for specific advice." In their release, the native groups noted that Judge Berger already has said it would be essential, in view of the land claims, for him to consider gathering lines for the main pipeline. "It will be the responsibility of the commission to consider the location and extent of gas fields in the Mackenzie Delta and the Beaufort Sea. said the judge. The Indian and Eskimo groups said Mr. Buchanan's statement was another exam- ple of Ottawa trying to restrict Judge Berger's in- quiry. More than a month ago, Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said some federal government studies or reports dealing with the pipeline might not be available to the inquiry on grounds of secrecy. This was in contrast to Judge Berger's statement that all information, govern- ment or private, would be available to the commission. The native groups said "they are concerned and con- tinue to he concerned by attempts made to undermine the Berger hearings and to limit the necessary scope of (the judge's) recom- mendations." "Has the government already decided what it set up the Berger hearings to deter- asked the native groups. "Can the federal govern- ment limit the Berger hearings without orders-in- council varying the terms setting up the asked the groups. The Indians and Eskimos said Mr. Buchanan's state- ment merely reinforced their stand that the pipeline should not be built until their land claims are settled. The Indians alone are claiming square miles of the Mackenzie Delta, including the route of the proposed pipeline. "We believe land claims is- sues cannot be discussed with- out confronting the explora- tion for gathering and processing and transportation of oil and gas on the land and offshore in the Beaufort said the native news release. The natives also said the proposed study by Mr. Buchanan would duplicate studies already made by the native groups. Further studies "may alien- ale people who have been and continue to be studied and they said. INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S YEAR. rrSNOT A SLOGAN, ITS AN ATTITUDE. Sure, we have a button for you to wear during International Women's Year. But there's something else you should wear. Not just this year, but all the time. It's an attitude. An attitude that says no one will ever again deny you an opportunity just because you're a woman. That no one will ever pay you less money than a man when you perform the same job as a man. That next time a prejudice or a precedent says "No, you you're going to ask "Why It's a question that raises a very serious point. And the point is that, despite numerous laws which outlaw discrim ination against women, many opportunities are still denied us, many avenues are still closed to us and far too many prejudices still cloud the minds of men and women alike. There aren't many women lawyers in Canada. There aren't many women doctors. There aren't many women stockbrokers or airline pilots or bus drivers or mechanics. There still aren't enough women Members of Parliament. And what we should be asking ourselves is "Why because, unfortunately, change will not come until we demand it. We must tell ourselves that nothing is reminding ourselves that this is 1975, not 1875. Let us tell ourselves, and those around us, that we will no longer settle for a secondary role in society. Let us look upon the progress we've made in the past with pride. And the challenges we face in the future with determination.
