Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thunday, Juno 1, 1972 Palliser Wheat Growers approve grain car purchase L L By R1C .SWHIART Herald Sfaff Writer The federal government !s getting .bouquets Instead of bites from Canada's wheat watch" dog, Palliser Wheat Growers Association, following announcement of the purchase of special rail cars for grain shipment. Announcement was made by Minister Trudeau Friday and came ia response to ttie outcry from many sectors to move more to export position. Walter Nelson, president of Palliser, expressed "gratifica- tion" at the announcement while the Alberta Wheat Pool simply welcomed the provision of the .hopper-type cars. The new cars wilt all be hopper bottom grain cars which' toth load and unload faster than the traditional box- car. The association said the pur- chase recognizes a weakness in Canada's grain transportation system and promises to allevi- ate a chronic problem. Mr. Nelson said the purchase was ah indication that Otto Lang, minister In charge of the Canadian wheat board, and are responding to farmers' de- mands to sell more wheat.

'This concept Is the key- tone that will put Canada ack into business as a serious ontender for world grain mar- tSi" he said. "With a commit- nent there is an indication h'at we are going for market xpansion rather than produc- tion control." The association said many hfcgs, including the working elationship of the railways, charges for using the cars, pos- sible purchase or lease of rail- ways, upkeep of cars and iden- tification of grain cars remain to be discussed. Mr. Nelson echoed Uiis state- ment but added that a central- ized, inland grain handling system, supported by satellite gathering elevators appears to be the answer. "Together with the present use of inland terminals the federal government's purchase of hopper car is the only im- portant change we've had in our grain handling system in half a said Mr. Nelson. is in ''confused EDMONTON Education is n a confused muddle because are trying to establish objectives and priorities with- out really knowing where they IVo doctors concentrate on Indians "I am not aware of any physician resident on an Indian reserve providing service only to said Dr. Robert F.

Mr. Williams said one of the problems facing educators is that since they are uncertain about where education is go- ing, it is Impossible to defend what they are doing to the growing number of critics.

Tom Weidenhamer, execu- tive officer of the ASTA, said the objectives of education be- ing followed now were devel- oped years ago and these values win continue to domi- nate education in the future "unless a miracle happens overnight." He said before anything else is done, a definition must be found that describes what an educated person is. PHOTOGRAPHERS PORTRAIT-WEDDING COMMERCIAL SAME CONVENIENT LOCATION 710 3rd AVE. S. A. E.

Kerber Photo 68 Indians graduate from program By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Rejuvinatcd pride and deter- mination to improve the eco- nomic and social position of na- tive people highlighted a cer- emony at St. Paul's hostel on the Blood reserve Wednesday. Sixty eight adults, ranging in age from early 20s to mid-60s, were recipients of adult eve- ning education program certifi- cates, Howard Beebe, a Blood band councillor and University of Lethhridge senate member, ci- ted in an emotion-charged speech the importance of the success of the evening Blood adult education program in get- ting a better educational deal from Ottawa. Education does not auto- matically mean a job, but it does represent an improved standard of living, he said. Better education, as gained from evening classes, however, will give Indians better job op- portunities or the tools to work for themselves. Native adults lacking educa- tion should not "be ashamed" to return to school at night "in order to Mr. Beebe said. "The biggest setback" evi- dent towards quick develop- ment is the "uneducated par- ent who can't help his chil- dren." He said non-native people are riding an economic tide be- cause they are education cpn- cious and recognize its benefits. Mr. Beebe lauded the Indian affairs department for finally recognizing the importance of on-reserve education for native people. This has resulted in the re- versal of a past trend to trans- fer educational facilities off the reserve. "They saw the need" and arc now spending considerable money in improving the re- serve educational system.

Teacher talks on again The stalled contract negotla- t i o n s between the Alberta Teacher's Association and tha Southern Alberta School Au- thorities Association got rolling again this morning under tha direction of a conciliation offi- cer. The talks broke off last Fri- day after four days of meet- ings in Lethbridge, with both sides citing differences on mon- ey mailers as the main issue. Meetings with the conciliation officer, Ncal Graham of the board of Industrial relations in Calgary, are expected to con- clude Friday night. Unless an agreement can be reached soon, there is a danger that the current agreement will expire before a new contract is signed. The present contract expires Aug. 31. Negotiations will be impossible during the summer because all teachers will not be available to vote on any pro- posals. So, both sides are pull- ing out all the slops in an ef- fort to reacli a settlement be- fore the end of June. Bill Casanova of Calgary is heading the ATA negotiating team while Ray Clark of Bur- dette represents the trustees. SASAA represents all 18 school boards south of Vulcan and Brooks, with the exception of Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. About teachers and 000 students are affected by the contract talks. The negotiations are being h e 1 d at the Park Plaza Motor Floods could still come Despite the high river flows >f the past two weeks, the flood hazard in southwestern Alberta s still acute, according to Andy Russell, naturalist and ranch- er in the Waterton district. "A ivarni rain, and we're In real Mr. Russell said Wednesday. "The mountains are still jam-packed with snow, the rivers and lakes and reser- voirs are full, and an additional leavy run-off means floods." It's just as bad on the other side of the Divide, he loU Tho Herald. The Waterton Lakes can hold very little more water, Mr. Russell said, and the river is at the top of its banks. He discounted the value ol upstream irrigation reservoirs as protection against floods such as those which may now be pending. They can take the edge off sharp and sudden off- season precipitation, but their capacity, even if drawn down at the start of the run-off, is just a drop in the bucket com- pared to the volumes of water now hanging on the mountain- sides. But with "just right" weath- er for the next two weeks, the crisis could well pass with no serious damage, Mr. Russell said. Bus routes to change June 5 The transit department will change the routes for Number 2, 4 and 4a buses beginning June 5.
