Adderley leaves ORRPC Alta. Planning Act resignation cause By GREG MclNTYTlE Herald Staff Writer Erwin Adderley mentioned 'extreme frustrations" in a elter to the board of directors if the Oldman River Regional banning Commission announc- ng his resignation as executive director. Frustration" is the result of rying to plan the orderly grow- th of Lethbridge and the sur- rounding area "with the prob- emsome Alberta Planning Act, ic said in an interview. Municipal Affairs Minister )avid Russell has recognized he inadequacy of the set and las initiated a complete revi- ion of the act. Mr. Adderley is pessimistic, that the new act is ikely to be even weaker than he current law. Chief of planning for the ORRPC since 1969, he leaves Sept. 1. The commission takes in the region from the United Stales and British Columbia borders half way to Calgary and Medicine Hat. Mr. Adderley, 32, has accept- ed a "more responsible" job as director of planning for the Bermuda Islands, located of! the east coast of the United States, where he was born and raised. He likened the planning act to a mousetrap being used to tackle a lion. Under the act, the majoi legislation governing munici- pal development in the prov- ince, local government can not adequately cope with major problems like decay of down- town areas and excessive land prices, he ssid. 6No comment5 says Yurko Alberta environment minister ill Yurko declined comment oday on federal agriculture linister Bud Olson's statement ailing his announcement of the federal-cost sharing in oulhcru Albevla's iiTigalion rejects "premature." "Read my speech and evcry- u'ng will come into the proper erspeclive" was all Mr. Yurko as willing to say. In his speech to the Canadian 'aler Resources Association inference in Lethbridge July Mr. Yurko said: "The Government of Alberta as found the above proposal or the federal government to ntribute million toward c ?S5 million project) ccepLable and has so inform- ed the Government of Canada. "It is my opinion that the terms of an acceptable agree- ment have been established ami all thai remains is formal- izalion of that agreement. "There is good reason to be- lieve thnt the federal govern- ment will also find the above proposal acceptable and that implementation will be expedi- ted over a period of approxi- mately 10 years." Mr. Olson said the announce- ment was premature because Ihe arrangement hadn'l been presented to or approved by the federal government and "it's rather unusual for (he minis- ter to first of all announce a policy on behalf of another gov- ernment." Things will likely get wors because big business, whic has grown stronger in receu years, will probably oppose tough new act that would im pose further restrictions, h predicted. Business can be a powerfu lobby on the decision makin in Edmonton. High land prices arc at th centre of many planning prob lems, he said. If planning is to be effeclne then local government, wit the assistance of senior govern ment, must maintain contro through of sufficien land in all areas critical to tl: development of a communiU said Mr. Addcrley. This public-owned land mus be made available to prospec live developers at reasonabl prices, he said. Lack of planning Control ha: resulted in far too much land in Lethbridge zoned for com mercial use, said the planner Legislation is pending, ac- cording to the minister of mun- icipal affairs, to allow the Al- berta Housing Corporation to assist municipalities to assem- ble land. Mr. Adderley said some ol s frustrations 2s a planner icre have resulted from the in- ability of local councils to di- rect development to desirable locations. Municipal government is too of I en forced to bow to a devel- oper who says he wilt cither locate industry on cheap land in an undesirable area, or go elsewhere. Developers are often correct when they complain I hat land prices are loo high in desirable commercial locations like the downtown. Three main [actors behind decay of downtown areas arc: high taxes: high property costs: a large proportion of obso- lete buildings.

Indian Days ends fifth colorful year By RUDY IIAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer STANDOFF With the marked casualness typical of Plains Indians, the Blood re- serve's fifth annual Kainai In- dian Days concluded Sunday. A pamde consisting of 400 traditionally-garbed I n A i ans highlighted the four-day event on Canada's largest Indian re- serve. Sunday's colorful parade lead by Blood Chief Jim Shot Both Sides and Canadian and Amer- ican flag bearers saw Blackfoot Indians from throughout the Canadian and United Stales west participate. Blackfeet nation Indians from Washington, Oregon, Mon- tana, Idaho, and other stales joined Alberta's Blackfoot bands in the horse-led parade. Soggy weather resulted in the postponement of an all-In- dian rodeo until this coming weekend. But the rains couldn't ed by another 150 or so con- ventional tents housing more than Indians provided non-native visitors with a taste of pre-modcrn native living styles. A spokesman for the Blood keep the estimated 800 dancers band council and administra- from performing nor the stick lion-sponsored event blamed game gamblers from risking'" their money. Near-perfect weather condi- tions on the last day of the four-day event drew half of the estimated turn- out.

Lethbridge has 15 ac- tive members and Medicine Hat has 13. YAC, an organization of vol- unteers aged 13 to 25, works with the mentally retarded through the Alberta Association for the Mentally Retarded, started in Alberta four years ago. However, in most communi- ties, including Edmonton and Calgary, the YAC movement ha? not yet gained momentum. Outside delegates to the con- ference were from Medicine Hat, Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Stony Plain, Fort Mc- Murray and Vegrevillc. The delegates heard Aubrey Teal, AAMR executive director, speaking on the role oE the AAMR and volunleers in work- ing with the mentally retarded Saturday before breaking into small group discussions. Mr. Teal said an important task is to change community attitude toward the mentally retarded, who are people with less I.Q. due to brain damage, nut "insane idiots." He also re- minded the delegates that there is a difference between the mentally retarded and the mentally 111. Most of all. the mentally re- tarded have rights as other cit- izens of the province.

Blood Indian constables en- sured the encampment's safety by picking up would-be trouble makers or drunks before any incidents evolved. However, both the Indian constablery and RCMP turned a blind eye to ancient forms of Indian gambling. The rhythmic beat of stick game players drew quizzical glances from non-Indian spec- tators. The game involves 10 ornate sticks and two stubbier and shorter ones, Each side gets five sticks mill one side holding the twoi shorter ones. One of the two short ones is marked and the other is not. The opposing side is to guess whether or not the plain stick is being held out in the player's palm. Each wrong guess costs one of the five sticks. The side that loses all ILs sticks loses the cash pot in the middle. Throughout the game, the side with the short sticks chant and beats tom-loms or wood to bring luck and distract the op- posing gamblers.
