Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THI lETHBRIDGE HERAID July 3, 1971 Ottawa iveekly livestock report OTTAWA (CP) Cattle de- liveries at the ID public stock- vards up to Wednesday at ap- proximately head were sharply lower than the previous week, reflecting the holiday on July 1. Exports of feeder and slaugh- tci cattle to the United States totalled 383 head last week and bi ought the year's total to head, compared with head in the same period in 1970. In both offerings and pnee, cattle market displayed an uneven trend. Prices in the east were generally lower, but in the Hopes parley isn't dead west prices were uneven be- tween markets. The hot, humid weather, coupled with a slower demand at the wholesale level, narrowed the level of demand and depressed prices for steers, betters and good cows. Feeder cattle were generally steady to a few cents lower. Hog prices were mainly higher m the eastern market, but showed little change in the western market. The lamb market remained unchanged in the east but was generally lower in the west.

The premier said the invest- ment will be made by Rayonier Quebec Inc., "an associate of 1TT Rayonier Inc. of New York, itself a subsidiary of Interna- tional Telephone and Telegraph Corp." Mr. Bourassa said construc- tion of the pulp mill is to begin immediately and take three years. Construction will entail hiring workers each year ?nd during the last year. SASKATOON (CP) Attor- ney-General H.oy Romanow said Friday he hopes Saskatchewan will be able to persuade Ottawa and the other provinces to con- tinue meetings aimed at obtain- ing a new constitution. Mr. Romanow said it would be unfortunate if federal-provin- cial constitutional conferences are not resumed because of Quebec's rejection of constitu- tional proposals. He said he expects the Saskat- chewan cabinet to deal with the proposed charter in the next week to 10 days and said the package probably will be ap- proved. "What I'm more worried about at this stage of the game is how to resurrect the negotia- tions at an Ottawa level. Be- cause Quebec has rejected the charter it would appear that for the time being that it's an end to this series of meetings."

U.S. companies muscle in on air baggage business TORONTO (CP) Large United States companies are starting to move into the lucra- tive business of baggage hand- ling and skycapping at major Canadian airports. I The larger contracts at To- ronto and Montreal now are ate drops Rail strike set I held by U.S. firms or their Ca- nadian subsidiaries, leaving Ca- nadian companies with the s m a 1 ler, less-profitable con- racts in other areas. The latest switch in contracts at Toronto leaves only Air Can- ada with its own skycaps, and Air Canada and Wardair Lid. with their own baggage-hand- ling facilities. The other airlines are serv- iced by General Aviation Serv- ices of Toronto, a subsidiary of Hudson Leasing Co. of New York. The skycapping contract went to Consolidated Aviation Fueling Services of Canada, based in Montreal but owned by Allied Aviation Ltd. of New York. REPLACED GENAIRE General won the baggage handling contract for American Airlines from Genaire (1961) Ltd. of St. Catharines, Ont., a Canadian-owned firm.

OTTAWA (CP) Education of Indian and Eskimo youngs- ters in federal schools has suf- fered because the department of Indian affairs and northern de- velopment regards their educa- tion as "a passing tiling, soon to be handed over to the prov- says a report tabled in the Commons. In a 20-page report, the result of two years of probing into In- dian and Eskimo education, the northern affairs committee says it believes "that the objectives of the federal schools should be the creation of models of excell- ence. Such models would furnish to Indian and Eskimo young peo- ple "an education which will provide to them equality of op- portunity and the ability to be employed at every level of the economy in the regions in which they live." The committee also noted that the "drive towards transfer educational programs to the province" should take into ac- count the feelings of the people. VISITED COMMUNITIES It found in visits to Indian and Eskimo communities "unanim- ity of Indian opinion that no transfer of Indian children into integrated schools or into pro- vincial schools take place ex- cept with the consent and at the request of the majority of In- dian parents in the communities concerned." The committee said that the model education program in the remaining federal schools should have as its goals: of all factors within the present system which have condemned succeeding generations of Indian students to a disadvantaged status within the school system as well as in the adult society in which they graduate. of the major role education has to play in the elimination of the differences in the high school dropout rate be- tween whites and natives. of the negative parental and community atti- tudes towards education now ex- isting in many Eskimos and In- dian communities. The dropout rate was more than four times the national av- erage and it served a population of which 40 to 50 per cent of adult males were either unem- ployed or under-employed. In some Eskimo and Indian communities, up to 90 per cent were unemployed for a good part of the year. nadian companies still operate ropean force.
