Indian chief wants cut in pay Harold Cardinal, the recently re-elected president of the In- dian Association of Alberta wauls a cut in pay. In (act, he says the president shouldn't be paid at all and is prepared to present a resolution to that effect at the lAA's next executive board meeting. Mr. Cardinal will also rec- ommend the posts of executive- secretary and treasurer be- come non-paying. Last December he quit as president following a running battle with Indian Affairs Min- ister Jean Chretien over unac- counted for association funds. Since his recent re-election there have been warnings from witliin the association that it must undergo some dramatic changes to survive. Mr. Cardinal plans to over- come existing problems by set- ting up better communication channels "straighten out misin- formation and the lack of in- formation." In addition to solving the com- munication problem he plans to initiate a province-wide survey to tackle the problem of Indian alcohol abuse wliich is "increas- ing at a phenomenal propor- tion throughout the province." The "detailed and intensive survey" to be undertaken by September will document the problems on Alberta's reserves. Upon completion of the sur- vey the reserves will be re- visited to analyze reaction and study pcssiblc recommenda- tions, Mr. Cardinal said in a Herald telephone interview. Once all the information is compiled, the document will be presented to both senior gov- ernments "for action."

"Our programs may be sim- ilar, in some respects, to tho other he said. But our flavor is different it's a matter of malting that known in a legitimate fashion." Dr. Holmes said in a Herald interview that establishing the university's presence is the way to attract students, not "by twisting of ari'.is every April." For this reason, the U if L must establish itself as a pro- vincial university, which it has not done to date. "We should be getting more students from Oalgary and Edmonton for the same reasons that students from this area are going said Dr. Holmes. The new vice-president, who returned from a one-year sab- batical leave in June, said he was most heartened by his visits to several new, small universities in Ontario. He said the small universities in the east are having the same type of problems the U of L is experiencing a? they sit in the awesome shadow of the University of Toronto. Dr. Holmes said the past year was a difficult one lor the U of L because of the tension caused by the move to a new campus, the enrolment drop and the resulting tight money situa- tion. However, the environment now is more stable. "The worst blows have been landed, now we have to get together and get on with the job at hand. Wo won't suffer any new onslaughts this we are just going to patch up our wounds and do better." Dr. Holmes said the U of L won't do anything markedly dif- ferent this year, "but we will try to do things better." Several new ideas are being kicked around and a proposal for a management arts pro- gram has already been submit- ted to the Alberta universities commission for reaction and, hopefully, for approval. "The University of Leth- bridge exists and it's going to continue to do he said. "Instead of wringing our hands this year, there will be a more positive approach to our principles of running a uni- versity." Dr. Holmes said he would like to have more southern Alber- tans visiting the U of L to see it, feel it ar.d experience it. He said many of the univer- sity's critics have never been on Hie campus and they don't have a true picture of what the U of L really is. Dr. Holmes would like to see Former city educationist acclaimed for research A former Lethbridge Icach- er and vice-principal of Wilson Junior High School has re- ceived international acclaim for his research project involving computer simulation. Dr. LcVerne S. (Lcc) Collet, son of Mr. and Mrs. Cclclar Collet, 1823 14th Ave. S. de- signed a process by which Uni- versity o[ Michigan students find and use extensive data generated from a computer. The process is called FEHR- Practicum, Formative Evalua- tion and Heuristic Research. Professor Collet designed the project ns a game in which teams of students are "hired" to solve an evaluation prob- lem. They compete to develop the best research procedures and treatments. Thi! researchers nnd the com- pulor, which is tho research assistant, deal with appraising the students' elementary read- Ing program, initiating merit pay for teachers nnd Imple- menting programs in drug edu- cation and busing. Dr. Collet is an associate pro- fessor of educational research at the University of Michigan. He has directed the KEHH- Practicum project for two years. A paper on the project Is being presented by Dr. Collet at the International Conference on Gaming and Simulation in Birmingham, Great Britain this month. He believes FEHR-Pracli- cum, to be available to educa- tors nationally by Jnnurary 1973, is the most comprehensive simulation of a school system yet developed.

"You can't expect all the professors to run- out and join the service clubs, but involve- ment in the problems of south- ern Alberta is a different mat- he said. Dr. Holmes said the Univer- sity ol Lethbridge was estab- lished as a result of a grass- roots movement in Lethbridge and the surrounding area it was created because of a de- mand, and it needs the support of southern Albertans in order to prosper. "If I was a high school gradu ale looking for a university, would choose the University of Lelhbridge without any ques- he said. "But that's because it has what I would want from a uni- versity education." The University of Lethbridge would be in a much better posi- tion if it had been given the proper tools to work with, he commented. "We should have been told 'here are your programs and resources, now go to it and do your job said Dr. Holmes. "This is our ideal of how a university should be set up. However, we nre in the busi- ness of counting bodies this is not the way it should be, a university's situation shouldn't depend so much on the number of students it has." Dr. Holmes said the U of L mil gradually relieve itself ol the growing pains common to every new university and will grow in stature and importance in the life and affairs of southern Alberla. Beet farmers turn to mechanization By IlUDy HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Wrilcr Future southern Alberta sugar beet crops may not be harvested due to labor short- ages prompted by Alberta and Saskatchewan Indian organiza- tion leaders. Southern Alberta sugar beet growers say the recent contro- versy about the standard of sugar beet worker housing mil elp Indian leaders stop the tide of migrant native workers to the fields. Migrant workers are essential in hoeing and harvesting the region's acres of sugar beets. But, the growers added, with- in five years they will be able to get along with little or no migrant workers. Mechanization coupled with the available local labor forces will be able to handle all the work. The growers also admitted the accommodation they pro- ide workers may be considered substandard, but said it is, in most cases, sufficient to house "temporary" workers. There have been strides made to improve housing over recent years, the growers said. Although improvements will 'continually be made" they will take time: statistically, the growers say, southern Alberta farmers only earn an aver- age of per year. Disregarding numerous other surveys conducted by private, federal and provincial agencies about worker housing, they used the income statistics to state farmer's can't use their "meager" incomes to make im- mediate substantial worker- housing Improvements. But the growers assure they are looking at oilier alterna- tives to improve accommoda- tion. Besides, they say, the Alberta Federal-Provincial Agriculture Manpower Committee checks the standard of housing avail- able before they provide any migrant labor. These checks are in accor- dance with local health and building regulations. For the beet farmer who wants to improve seasonal workers housing, grants are available covering up to half construction costs or per worker to a maximum of The growers said much of the housing provided at the begin- ning of the year cannot be passed the following year, un- less repairs are made, due to damage by the temporary in- habitants. However, a spokesman for the Barons-Eureka Health Unit says the standard of accommo- dation provided to migrant workers hasn't been checked by his department for two years, A survey was done two years ago and improvement recom- mendations were made, he said. Most of the accommodation provided is up to standards but some transient families are just moving info unused buildings without permission. He recommended the unused buildings be torn down to elim- inate the problem. The growers say the native migrant has benefited greatly over the years from working the beet fields, both financially and in leanu'ng farm skills. But Chief David Ahenakew of the Saskatchewan Federation of Indians said in a Herald inter- view that less than two per cent of all migrant workers learn any practical farming skills on the beet fields. It's a "bad siuation" which provides natives with no edu- cational opportunities in learn- MAKE TIME STAND STILL With film and Cameras from McCready-Baines STOCKING THE FINEST IN 35 mm Cameras <9 Instamatlc Cameras Q Movie Cameras Complete Accessories Name Brand Film McCREADY-BAINESj__________ PHARMACY LTD.

Chief Ahenakew would like lo see Ihe beet fields fully mech- anized immediately, "so we can start dealing with our own de- fects." He said it is difticult lo pro- vide regulated education and training when the people mi- grate to the beet fields in the summer and return home for the winter. He added, the migrant work- ers have considerably better accommodation on their own reserves than they receive at the beet fields here. Harold Cardinal, president of the Indian Association ol Alber- ta says the IAA has no current position regarding the flow of workers south. But if Hie grow- ers want a position the IAA "will be more happy to acco- modate them." Mr. Cardinal pointed .to a re- cent NDP-labor union study Into beet housing standards which made improvement recommen- dations which "would not be nard to implement." The federal-provincial Man- power committee says there is "no way" a farmer offering substandard housing will find any labor through their or- ganization. Checks on available accom- modation are made annually and defects found have to be repaired before the beet farm- er can expect any laborers. The Alberta Public Health Act states that a dwelling means "any building which is wholly or partly used or intend- ed to be used for living or sleeping by human occupants." The act explicitly defines rigid exterior and interior require- ments plus the requirement of water and sewage equipment which ere also governed by a stiff criteria. It also stales the number of pecple permitted to live any given number of rooms within a dwelling. Further, it adds at least 400 cubic feet of air per adult, and 55 square feet of floor area per person is re- quired in rooms used lor sleep- ing. In order (a meet provincial health regulations each con- tracted beet worker must there- fore be allotted living space eight feet high, five feet long and 10 feet wide. And unless there were only one or two people living in the beet buildings The Herald re- cently surveyed, the law is fre- quently broken. A large portion of those mi- grant workers flocking to south- ern Alberla bring their often large families them. Chris Gibson scholarship to be presented Thursday A scholarship to assist aspiring theatre students in the community has been pre- sented to the Allied Arts Coun- cil by Doris Balcovskc of Leth- bridge. Mrs. Balcovske has initiated the scholarship to perpetuate the memory of the late Cliris Gibson, her father. Mr. Gibson, who died In March 1971 at the age of 83, served for many years on the executive of the Allied Arts Council. As well as his affiliation with the arts, Mr. Gibson was well known for lu's services with the Canadian Red Cross Society, the John Howard Society and the Gait Hospital Board.
