There were Indians Seek High-Level Talks, Request Chretien To Come West By RIC SWIHART Staff Writer Failure to get satisfactory answers from subordinate In- dian affairs officials on the problem of Native education by Natives, is the reason for the current sit-in at the St. Paul Residential school, Stanle-y Rederow, school committee chairman for the newly formed Blue Quills Education Council, said in a telephone interview Friday. "The assistant deputy minis- ter for Indian affairs, Mr. Bergevin and the director for the education branch of Indian affairs, George Crombe, last week were unable to give any answers that were satisfactory to the council so we released them from the meeting. "Shortly after this incident, we received a telegram" from Ottawa asking us to come for meetings with the minister with all expenses paid but we told them it would be cheaper as well as being the right thing if the minister came to St. Paul. "We want to have talks with the minister of Indian affairs and northern development, Jean Chretien and H. B. Robin- son, deputy minister." Mr. Rederow said the coun- cil informed the department of Indian affairs the sit-in, with between 200 and 300 people par- ticipating, would continue until satisfactory answers to the QUALITY RUG CLEANING AT NO EXTRA COST BENJAMIN'S CLEANERS TAILORS 317 lOlh Street S, PHONE 327-5771 problem were given the In- the results asked for by the residents in the district. dians.

"We were told at tliiat time, in matters dealing with educa- tion, things we didn't like or want wouldn't be forced down bur he said. "The trend of this meeting was that Indian affairs officials were trying to stick to little issues, staying away from tha crux of the matter the trans- fer of Indian education control to the Indian people the province." Leroy Little Bear, research officer for the Blood Indian Band administration, Caid1- ston, said the same problems encountered by the Blood In- dians are being encountered by the Indians at the Saddle Lake Athabaska district re- garding the Blue Quite Resi- dential School controversy.

First Daily An experimental campus radio station, IXE, began the world's first scheduled daily broadcasts in 1920, and later be- came radio station WGI, ac- cording to Tufts University rec- Recreation Study Reported Neil J. Andrew, a recreation consultant lured by the city's recreaticn department to con- duct a study on recreation in the riverbottom area, outlined the general aims and objectives of the study at a press con- ference Friday. Also present was Bill Brown, parks and recreation depart- ment superintendent, who said the need for a review of recrea- tion in the valley became ap- parent when the University ol Lethbridge decided to moyf west of the river. This, he said opened up the whole area to a much greater extent and made it necessary to find out exactly where the department and the city stood as far as use of the valley was concerned. A study was completed ant submitted to council last fall Mr. Andrew was brought in last month to work on specific details of development. His re- port should be released this fall. Under the terms of reference that have been set up, the study will concentrate on de- velop, where to develop it, pri orities for development, maste site plans and consideration for a regional concept. Mr. Andrew emphasized tha the regional concept, while it eluding a certain amount of pri vate property, did not mean the city was interested in ac quiring land for recreationa use. It did mean, he said, that pri vate landowners in the are. were being consulted about pos sible use of their land. He alsc asked that anyone %yishing t make suggestions contact hin at city hall. Most of his tune since comint to the city had been taken u; with studying previous studies making walking tours of recrea tion sites and studying the uni versity's site plans, he said. Site analysis, to determine the potential of various parcel of, land, and development pro posals will be major parts o the study. The final report will attemp to show what types of recrea tion can best be developed an where it can be placed. The important pollution as peet will not be ignored, a] though Mr. Andrew said the study would not attempt to saj hoi" pollution in the valta should be controlled. Mr. Andrew has worked pre- viously in the province with thf department of youth and alsi helped develop hiking trails hi Edmonton, and Calgary. He is currently working on his PhD in recreation resource development at Michigan State University. s to feet 'of water in office uilding basements within lock of the break. The break at 7th St. and S., in the early hours Fri- ay morning, stemmed from a our-foot-long crack in the six- nch pipe. Water from the main hort circuited into the sam- ary sewer line, causing it to urcharge. The result was looded basements in the down- own area. One of the hardest hit was he Marquis Hotel. Water depth averaged 18 inches throughout the basement with one room, which was blocked off, having three feet of water. Flooding was first noticed at the Marquis about 3 a.m. Fri- day morning and a pump was put into service almost immed- iately. By 8 a.m. the situation was under control. Guests at the hotel were without water until a.m., when the city turned ;be water on again. Ted Lawrence, city engineer- ing director, said no exact cause for the break could be determined until the section of cracked pipe had been exam- ined. He said the pipe was likely an old one as the city had stop- ped putting water and sanitary sewer mains in the same trench some years ago. City crews were at work this morning finishing up filling in the hole they dug in the middle of 4th Ave. S. at the corner of 7th St. DUE HOME FOR WHOOP-UP CELEBRATIONS Tho 10-day Whoop-Up trail ride is now on the last leg of the journey with the 38. riders expected to arrive in Lethbridge Sunday. The' ride left Stirling July 10 and covered some 175 miles, circling south from Stirling through Whisky Gap, west to Waterton Lakes, north to Standoff, into Fort Macleod and following the old stage coach road into Lethbridge in time for Monday's Whoop-Up Days parade. The riders will camp at half-way house near Monarch tonight. ___________________ Petition Pushed On Sunday Bylaw? A movement to force a pleb- iscite on an amendment to Leth- bridge's Sunday sport bylaw ap- pears to be gaining momentum, Briant Strinaam, who repre- sents the groups wanting the plebiscite, said Friday. About 100 petition sheets, each with room for 16 names, have already been distributed and this number likely would be doubled by Sunday, Mr. Stringam said. The petition drive was being spearheaded by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day CLIFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M. ICK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDO. Optn Soturdays Evening! by Appointment PHONi 327-2822 Saints, he said. Other churches are being contacted and sev- eral have indicated they will participate. Although no count has been taken on the number of signa- tures so far, Mr. Stringam said ho had received quite a few phone calls and interest in the issue seemed to be high. The LDS Cmirch is also in- serting an advertisement in The Herald advising persons who wish to sign or circulate peti- tions they may do so by phoning the number given. City council Monday extended the deadline for petitions to July 23 from July 0 after re- ceiving a letter from Mr. Stringam saying the public no- tice advertising the deadline wu open to misinterpretation. If a petition with more than names is received the by- law relaxing the regulations on Sunday sport and entertainment could go to a plebiscite.

The department will be gath- ering data by passing out ques- tionnaire cards to persons using recreation facilities. The card contains 12 ques- tions relating to the size of the party, and the facilities used, and it is anticipated most of them will be filled out on the spot and handed back. Existing parks and recreation department personnel will be used in the survey and the cost to the city should be minimal, Bill Brown, department super- intendent, said. A start on the survey likely will be made next week. MOVING?
