About 60 teepees housing some 500 Indians were up at sunset. Indian Days, open to the public, continues through Sunday. No, it's not an Indian uprising Dy IIUDY IIAUGENEDER Ilcrald Staff Writer STANDOFF, It looks lik 1072 instead of 1972. From the top of nearby hills the scene below looked like th war chiefs of all the Plains Indians were on hand for giant pow-wow. In reality, it was Thursday the year was 1972, and the firs day of the fifth annual Kaina Indian Days on the Blood re- serve was under way. Throughout the day, Indians from all over North America' west arrived to set up at leas 60 teepees and a similar num ber of more conventional tents And more teepees will en circle the ceremonial centre o the encampment in the nex three days. At least 500 Indians were camped here by lat Thursday. Although the majority of tee pees housed natives from the Blackfoot Nation- centred in southern Alberta and Montana incoming vehicles bore New York, New Mexico, Arizona Washington and Oregon licence plates. Low hanging clouds and constant drizzle that broke into steady rainfall by everjnf hampered activities. Traditional Indian dances which were to begin in the late afternoon were postponed to the Kainai Sports Centre today. The Indian dancers fearec the downpour would ruin o r damage their intricately-beaded and dyed costumes. The tree-sheltered encamp- ment's central dance area wasn't used except by dozens of children scampering around to the tune of tape-recorded tom-toms.

A "bron- tfchus" is an air 1 tube leading t down into the Plungs, "bronchi" ij being the plural J of this word. ____JAnd when the Greek suffix "itis" is added, the word "bronchilis" means an inflam- ation of these air lubes. Chron- ic bronchitis creates excess mucus, continual cough- ing brings up as and breathing becomes more difficult.

The professional all-Indl New legislation expected for the mentally retarded By JOE MA Herald Slaff Writer The provincial government may introduce new legislation this fall to recognize the rights of the mentally retarded to op- portunities for education, treat- Tien t and work, says Aubrey Teal, executive director of the Alberta Association for the Mentally Retarded. The existing acl, The Men- tally incapacitated Persons Act, does not provide enough pro- tection for the menially re- arded, Mr. Teal said in an nterview. He said the Lougheed gov- ernment is "one of the most irogressive governments" in >roviding care fer the mentally retarded. "This year, we will double IUT accommodation for mental y retarded with government he said. "The existing eight community residences in he province, which provide ac- ommendation to slightly under 00 mentally retarded people, vill be increased to 19 by the nd of this year, providing ac- ommodalion to more than 00." The association's adult train- ng facilities are also expand- ing with government support, e said. There are now two adult cenlres in the prov- ncc Sunrise Ranch in Coal- ale and Advance Industries in :algary. We are developing three more adult training ilr. Teal said. "Two of them re already under construction, 1 Lloydminister and Grande 'rairie, and will be opened hortly. The plan to build an- ther in Medicine Hat has been pproved, and work is expcct- i to commence shortly after e New Year." Mr. Teal said the assoc'n- on's position is lhat mentally etarded people "have equa ghts as other residents of the rovince." "This year has been one of the best years for our associa- he said. "But there are still many mentally retarded people who are not receiving any help at all because there are net enough schools, train- ing centres and community residences." There are 16 schools for the mentally retarded in the prov- ince operated by the associa- tion, another four operated by regular school boards, provid- ing education up to Grade 6 level few mentally re- tarded people can leam beyond Grade Mr. Teal said) to children. think we need twice the number of schools if all men- tally retarded children in the province can have an oppor- tunity to he said. Despite the fact that accom modation for mentally retardec people will be doubled by tl end of this year, "we think a other 400 rooms (at communii residences) are h said. Mr. Teal said the govemme is aware of the need to do mor for the mentally retarded, hope they will introduce ne< legislation this he sai "They didn't do it at the la legislature." "In addition to recognizin the rights of the mentally r tarded, the association fee new legislation should also pr vide protection against the vi timization of the mentally he said. New community residence being developed include four i Calgary, one in Medicine Ha and one in Drumheller.

County council baiks at secrecy By GllEG McINTYBE ilcrald Slaff Writer County of Lelhbridge council has decided for the time being against selling a policy on what kinds of business should be dis- cussed confidenlially. Council turned down a pro- posal from councillor Henry Nummi thai the news media and the public be excluded I Irom discussion of all "person- al business." Instead, council will abide by th e Municipal Government .A.rt which says by passing a resolu- tion council can go into com- millee at any time to deal with such sensitive issues as behav- ior o[ staff. Bob Grant, assistant cecret- ary-lreasurer for the county, County supports school complaints Counly of Lelhbridge coun is willing to get behind c izcns with complaints again county schools, says Hee Dick Papworth. "The very few incompete teachers we have in our schoo and the complaints from pa cnts regarding these teachers the reeve said in his month report to council, "is somethin lhat bothers me greatly." Councillors said it is difficu to fire teachers for incompe en.ce because of tenure sions which the Alberta Teac ers' Association had successfi ly lobbied for inclusion in t Alberta School Act. "With the surplus of leache now, we should be staffing o Accident victim critical Four persons were injured, one critically, and dam- age resulted, in two overnight car accidents.

Council discussed a number of past silualions that involved disputes over the behavior of counly leachers. said in light of the municipal acl, it seemed senseless for council to set policy. The debate followed unfavor- able reaction from councillors Nummi anl Oilo Wobick lo a slory in The Herald last month reporting council consideration of overtime pay for public works staff. Mr. Kummi felt Ihe slory em- barrassed Ihe slaff involved by making public their salaries. Mr. Wobick objected to his vole on the issue being publi- cized. "They could discriminate agsinsl us if they had it in for us." lie said of Ihe employees whose pay council was discuss- ing. Councillors John Murray and Jim Nicol, however, felt there was nothing in the newspaper report that should have been kept from the public. Heeve Dick Papworth said there is a "fine line" between what should and shouldn't be discussed confidentially and the line is difficult to draw. Back to the farm with council okay County of Lethhridge council has overturned a decision by its development officer and al- lowed a city resident to put two dwellings on a 4S-acre property within a mile east of Lethbridge. The development officer had ruled that the property was a "small holding" and therefore not entitled to contain more than one dwelling for ICO acres or less. Council, arguments by owner Thomas however, acccpled lawyer for Crighton lhat the land was agricultural and therefore not restricted to only one dwelling. The land is in a relatively expensive zone just outside city limits called (R-l) rural- future industrial. The counly development offi- cer rejected a n application from Mr. Crighlon to move a second house onto the roperty. Lawyer Vaughn Hembroff appealed the refusal. Mr. Hembroff argued lhat Mr. Crighton and his son desired to get out of their truck business in Lethbridge and start a small farm. While the 4G-acre property was too small to supply farm livelihood for the father and son, it was nevertheless a farm, Mr. Hcmbroff said. The father and so hoped to [earn enough aboul agriculture from the small operation to someday buy more land and get into farming entirely, he said.

PHONE 337-2822 Mr. Hembroff conceded that since the two families would not derive their livelihood from Ihe land, they did not expect to qualify for tax exemptions as a farm. Mr. Crighton senior had al- ready moved his house out to the property before he realized there might be difficulties mov- ing his son's house loo, said the lawyer. "A real hardship has been posed by this refusal." Mr. Hembroff said "it's un- usual today for people to go from the city back to the farm. You people, many of you com- ing from rural backgrounds, realize the desirability of pro- tecting the family farm." WESTBEND 36 CUP PARTY PERK Ideal for offices, shops, elc.
