I)y MAIIGARET LUNN Special Correspondent P1NCI1ER CREEK-A thrcc-day meeting on development of the Peigan reserve resulted in a variety of blasts at the Indian affairs branch and for a call "to start building and get things going now." Thirty persons from offices of the provincial and federal governments, and the chief and band council for the Peigan reserve, attended. "The time is now ripe," said Ralph Ragen, speaking on behalf cf the provincial government. Tlie Peigans are situated on the main railroad line, and on the main highway, and have manpower available. Chief Maurice McDougall expressed frustration with the Indian affairs department in past meetings on development. He said all the answers have been the same, "we are told our money is budgeted on a five-year program, but when those programs started, we haven't been told. We ask for direction -who could we take our needs to? We were told you have to get your own ideas, then we'll listen to you. Our educational background is limited, and we are constantly losing our educated people to greener pastures. "Band employee wages are peanuts compared to Indian affairs staff members. Preconceived ideas, like Mr. Indian is going to abuse any money we give him, have also held us up." The Peigan band council recently started the groundwork on a development board, which now has seven members inves- tigating possible areas in which to work. The chairman is Percy Smith, with Allan Pard acting as secretary. Also on the board: Susan Smith, Henry Potts, Robert Small Legs, Madeline Goodrider and Julius English. The three-day talks with a variety of government departments are the hopeful beginning of some fruitful economic and community development for the 1,400-strong Peigan Reserve. The second day brought forth expansion plans for a handicraft complex, to be located on Sportplex plans okayed COALDALE (HNS) - The provincial department of health has given its approval to the Sportsplex plans. Final blueprints and specifications are now on the way, according to word received from Strong, Lamb and Nelson of Calgary, the consulting engineer firm engaged for the project. Gerd Voelske, construction supervisor, will order materials and prepare for subcontracts. The site is on the extreme east end of main street. The building committee has set March 15 as the target date for the beginning of construction on both the administration portion and the pool. Frank F. Wiens, co-chairman of the building committee, said he was optimistic that 1,000 people will contribute one dollar a week to the project. Highway 3, close to where the present handicraft store is now located, Madeline Goodrider, manager for the Brocket Handicraft Co-op, explained that too often the handicraft production on reserves is not a recognized asset. They plead with authorities to consider handicraft producers rely mainly on proceeds from craft sales to supplement their meager incomes. With their lack of education, it is a certain impossibility for them to find jobs on tlie reserve or in the surrounding communities. Tlie Brocket Co-op has done many years of groundwork under very extenuating circumstances. They have plodded along where others would have given up. They realize that they have a tremendous advantage being right on Highway 3. Plans are being made for a grocery store, coffee shop, and later an assembly line production of crafts. These plans will need dedicated people, of which there are many. The handicraft complex is seen as providing employment for eight to 10 persons, apart from those people working on the production of local craft*. It is hopeful to present the proposals In full to officials of the Alberta Co-op Services, in the very near future. No books yet for some courses CLARESHOLM (HNS) - The Willow Creek School board heard Art Grant, secretary treasurer of Zone 6 of the ASTA, say "There is quite a lot of kick because in some of the Airstrip site survey set TABER (HNS) - S.
