Canadian Pacific Railway plans 1o phase out 375 miles of secondary rail line in southern Alberta starting in 1975. Both freight and passengers rode rural lines in the early days, like this one near Diamond City. A variety of causes including the preference of modern travellers for cars and planes, centralization of grain elevators and poor grain sales have spelled the demise of the once-grand railroad.

Dawn McCaugherty of Lelh- bridge won first in the pole bending class. Show judge Laurence Tre- besch of Dutton, Montana, said the Lethbridge production was comparable to other shows he has judged and attended. He said the local show didn't have to take a back seat to any other show. He said there are some nice horses in Lethbridge for the show, with particular emphasis on the showmansliip classes and the youth classes. Good co-operation from the riders was pointed to by Mr. Trebesch, Tony Perlich, director In charge of the light hovse show, said there were 250 entries in the quarter horse competitions from 100 exhibitors. Entries were received from Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Sas- katchewan and Montana. With up to 30 entries in many classes, this ranks as one of the biggest and best shows. Mr. Perlicli, direcling his eighth consecutive show, said the quality is constanthy im- proving. The class of horses and the know-how of the exhi- bitor is increasing all the tune He expressed satisfaction with the general good dress and appearance of the riders in particular, claiming the shov is cow more of an audience showpiece. As director, he would like to see more participation by younger horses and brood mares, hut expressed satisfac- tion with the strong perform- ance classes. He said the show ring was In excellent condition for both rid- ers and the show judge. Gerry McElroy, ring steward who is responsible for policing the show and interpreting the rule books, said the show was running very smoothly. The outdoor show ring is lo- cated just south of the pavilion. There are grandstand facilities for the public and there is no charge for admission. Senior citizens may get housing By RICHARD BUUKE Herald Staff Writer A committee set up by the community services depart- ment investigating the possi- bility of providing low-rental public housing for senior citi- zens in the downtown area. The committee will recom- mend that city council desig- nate it as a Lelhbridgc hous- ing authority, responsible for policy and administration ot such housing. Three different surveys show varying needs for housing for the aged in Lethbridge. A survey taken by Don Le- Baron of the Green Acres Lodge shows 200 senior citizens here in need of low-rental hous- ing; a similar survey by West- minister Church puts the num- ber at 100, and an Alberta Housing Corporation count shows about 80 families (all age groups) in need of public hous- ing. Aid. Cluck Chichester, a com- mittee member, pointed to the fact that the senior citizens want to be independent, with a small place of their own to rent, preferably downtown. He said he would like to sec public housing go in west of 5th St. S- The governments will not al- low public housing to be built exclusively for one age group, he said. A housing authority, however, could decide which percentage could be senior citi- zens. Two approaches to financing are possible: Ihc city, or what- ever aulhority puts up the housing, could borrow 75 pel- cent of the project costs from the federal government, 15 per cent from the province, and the rest from the city; the pro- ject cost would be borne total- ly by the three levels of gov- ernment on a similar split. fn the first instance, the au- thority building the accommo- dations, such as a senior citi- zen's group or church organi- zation, would own the housing after 50 years, the time allowed to pay back the loan. If the cost is borne by the govern- ments, they would own the housing. Aid. Chichesler said' 11 doesn't matter who would own the as long as it is provided. New public library in red tape bog Despite library board and city council approval and en- thusiasm from most of the pub- lic, a new million public li- brary for Lethbridge is still a Jong way from reality. The first small snips have been made in red tape, and the wheels of government have only started to move. Construction is not likely to begin until spring of 1973. City council has given the first reading to a money bor- rowing bylaw. Second and final reading is expected Monday. Then the Alberta local au- thorities board in Edmonton must approve the project to al- low Lethbridge to borrow the money. With provincial approval, architect George Watson go ahead with final detailed drawings of the two-storey, 000-square-foot building to be built on the old Central School property at 5th Ave. between Oth and ffth St. S. Central School will likely be demolished this fall. Detailed plans are expected to be ready by the end of tha year. In early 1973, the city will tender the project, a pro- cedure which takes about a month. If bids from construction companies are satisfactory, the city mil then give the final go-ahead to start site prepara- tion and building. South Indians may break with provincial association By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer The Alberta Indian Associa- tion is on the verge of disinte- gration. The recent re-election of Har- old Cardinal as president of the associaion may result in formation of a splinter group in southern Alberta. Another factor is that north- ern Alberta Cree Indians hold most of the group's top execu- jve positions, with little south- ern Alberta Blackfoot represen- tation. The youthful Mr. Cardinal re- signed the post last December after a prolonged running poli- tical battle with Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien.

Cultural and language differ- ences between the Crees, who dominate native populations in north and central Alberta, and southern Blackfoot Indians are also helping towards the break- down. The two groups are tradition- al enemies. A Blood band AIA represen- tative and spokesman said the differences between the tribes are vast: "Northern Cree In- dians primarily fish and hunt for a living while the Blackfoot farm and ranch." English is the predominant Blackfoot language now, while the Cree still converse mostly in their own tongue. "Long, boring translations are required at big he said. The southern Indians also be- lieve Mr. Cardinal let Ihe as- sociation down when he re- signed after a dispute with Mr. Chretien. Southern Indians said no re- port has teen received from Mr. Cardinal saying that be had produced a federal government audit statement ac- counting for the association's 1971 expenditures. Furthermore, the B 1 o o spokesman said, in recent years southern Alberta have not re ceived anything from the AIA "nothing but promises and poli licking."

Proponents of Ihc thrcc-indc- pendenl-group concepl, spear- headed by a Treaty Area 7 group, want each treaty area (o form its own association.

ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Dldg. 522 5lh SI. S. 328-4095 Supporters of the splinler- group concept believe by form- ing independent groups, each treaty area's special economic and cultural problems will be better-recognized and solved. Under Lhe existing structure, southern Indians see the Indian Association dissolving whether or not an active campaign is launched to form separate groups. "We definitely cannot contin- ue under the present the southern spokesman said. "All the key executive positions are held by the Cree." About 30 of the 75 southern delegates to the recent Saddle Lake meeting and elections walked out following the an- nouncement of i'.Ir. Cardinal's and three of four south- ern delegates refused nomina- tions to the post of secretary. At Ihe time of last fall's ATA- Chretien conflict, numerous ac- cusations of money abuse were made. .Most vocal of all was Cal- gary lawyer a Cree Indian, who said Ihe federal government is spending "lols of money on but some Indian association execu- tives are "using these funds to exploit their own people while living very high themselves." He, and southern Indians, pointed to the high salaries and expense accoimls received by the AIA executives. Before Mr. Cardinal stepped down from Ihe post last fall, he dissolved most of the programs the association was involved in and paid off most of the staff. At the time the group was near bankruptcy. The federal government res- cued the association and paid its bills while it was led by Clarence McHugh of Cluny. During a visit to southern Al- berta some time ago, Mr. Car- dinal stated his view of the as- sociation's objectives. He said the association was a strong organization which was a tool to help implement and push for the needs of Indians at the local level. It represented the structure to help Indians get control of their own affairs. He then advocated the strengthening of Indian author- ity at the local level. Although southern Indians are dissatisfied with the Indian association as it currently sits, they are willing to hold hack for a short lime to see if the neces- sary structural changes are made before they break lies. The Herald has attempted to interview Mr. Cardinal several times this week but he has not been available. Mr. Cardinal's office had promised a telephone interview and on numerous occasions had set up approximate limes. How- ever he has not replied to date. At the Saddle Lake meeting, Mr. Cardinal said he was con- fident any differences between northern and southern reserves would be huried. "No one need have any illu- sions as to what the role of the association is going to be from now he said. won't be middle people for anyone, but will represent all the peo- ple." Next year's conference will be held at Hay Lakes reserve near Edmonton, although south- ern Indians had requested it be held in the south. A scale has been set by tht federal government putting rent for (he lowest income group at S35 a month for public housing unit, Aid. Chich- ester said. The Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation has said money is available for such housing, provided the provin- cial government approves a project. Aid. Chicheslcr will meet with AHC officials in Edmon- ton Friday to determine the province's interest in establish- ing public housing here. Other committee members are Bob Bartletl, Clare Malm- berg, Don LeBaron, Morris Alitchell, Morley Taiiner and Ross Thrall Jr. LCC board appointments 'any day now' Appointments to the LeUv bridge Community College board of governors are in the process of being finalized and "an announcement should be made any day now." A spokesman in the office o[ Jim Foster, minister of ad- vanced education, said most of the appointments are "pretty well set." There are four vacancies on (he I.CC board. The terms ot board chairman Jerome Rob- bins, faculty representative Ben Brooks and student repre- sentative Jean Boon expired June 30. A fourth position has been vacant since Jim Anderson's resignation from the board early last fall. Only Mr. Rob- bins is eligible to serve another three-year term. The appointments have been delayed several times during the past few months due to dis- pute among cabinet members over who should be appointed. The board has not legally ex- isted since the end of June, since it has lacked both a quorum and a chairman. ALL SWIM EQUIPMENT Fins 9 Snorkels Masks 25% Off!
