Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta J6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Juno 3, 1970 Indian Brief To Worth Commission Isks Integrated Schools On Reserve i HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN It's always a FUNtastic time when the Shrine Cir- cus comes to town, especially when it brings Lee Marx with his bag of tricks to tickle the funny bone.

Mr. Gundlock, speaking to The Herald from Ottawa, was dealing with the demonstration Saturday at the Suffield Re- search Station near Medicine Hat which protested the sta- tion's research into chemical and biological weapons. Demonstrators from the Prai- ries and British Columbia back- ed conversion of the station, about 30 miles northwest of the city, to a centre for research into pollution and medical prob- lems. Mr. Gundlock said "conver- sion would be wonderful, but then we'd have to scrap defence first. "If we're going to have na- tional defence, we need re- search. I think the study into CBW is valuable in order for us to find antidotes." The Progressive Conserva- tive MP said "I know very well the CBW research at Suffield is not being used by the U.S. in Vietnam." Demonstrators contended re- search results were available to American scientists, and that defensive research could not be separated from research for of- fensive war applications. "I go along with the demon- strata's in that they're trying to find out for sure what is go- ing on. I don't know why every- thing is not made public. If it fears'." would have no j ling all over the place trying I to set up centres for pollution CARDSTON (Staff) Blood Indians submitted a request Tuesday to the Wortli Commis- sion on Educational Planning asking for integrated elemen- tary and high school facilities on the reserve southwest of Lethbridge. The band asked that such fa- cilities eventually bo placed under the control of the Blood tribal council. Dr. Walter Worth, head of the commission, received the submission on the reserve dur- ing the commission's tour of southern Alberta. About 750 children receive up to grade 8 education on the Blood and nearby Peigan re- serves, and about are taken to schools outside the re- serve by bus. Leroy Little Bear, a Univer- sity of Lethbridge student, said it was "federal policy to shut down reserve schools, but the provincial schools off reserves are not ready to take in native students." "Even rural white children have trouble coping with the middle class urban while bias of the system." Mr. Little Bear, former pres- ident of the Native Friendship Society of Alberta, said the band supported the Indian As- sociation of Alberta's rejection cf the new provincial school act. He said it does not guar- antee treaty rights would be re- spected by the province. Also, the new act does not guarantee that school boards in Indian areas v.'ould be made up large- ly of Indian parents. Mr. Little Bear said In- dian parents encourage chil- dren to attend school, but be- cause most of the parents did not reach high schools, "they can't be critical about the sys- tem. "They think if their child gets on the school bus every day something is happening." Both Marion Heavy Shields and Mabel Fox of the Blood re- serve said the Cardston Head- start program was "a lot of help" to children aged four and five. They said cliildren who re- University of Lethbridge pro- studies. It would pretty fessor Dr. Loren Hepler, a Suf- field protester, said he had not been able to get information on the station's work past 1954. Arid Dr. Harold Kasinsky, a University of British Columbia biologist, said 15 per cent of Suffield's results is classified information "and that's the part we wonder about." Mr. Gundlock said Canada has agreements with other countries and "we must keep our part up. "The government is scramb- pensive to scrap Suffield's CBiV research and re-direct it to pol- lution research." A Medicine Hat high school teacher Sunday said the city's residents feared Suffield but valued its contribution to the Medicine Hat economy. "Sure they're afraid some of the chemicals will drift across into the city some day." But because of the notoriety w h i c h Suffield is acquir- ing, "they want it the hell out of here." South Men On Executive Three south Albertans were elected to the board of direc- tors of the Retail Merchants' Association of Canada (Alber- ta) Inc. at its annual meeting in Edmonton recently. The directors are Charles H. Linn, Lethbridge, George A. Marshall, Lethbridge, and Har- old A. Fairbain, Claresholm. South Sizzles, More To Come ccivctl two years of the half- .lay daily program "start on pretty equal footing" with non- native cliildren on entering ele- mentary schools; Ron Gent, superintendent of education for the Blood and Feigan reserves, said one ma- jor problem lias been the lack of training among leaching stu- dents to deal with c'Jmic groups. "I think such training should be a compulsory part of the cir- riculum for all teaching slu: dents.' Five Bloods, including Del- phine Goodslriker and Mrs. Le- roy Little Bear, attended the one-hour session. No Pcigans were present. Dr. Worth said any whole- sale move to provide Indian education would require "a wholesale move in curriculum and teacher education." He found an encouraging at- titude among Blood Indians to- wards education. "It is evident you are willing to meet the white man more than he said. Student Claims Schools f Falling Flat High schools in Alberta are 'falling flat on their faces" be- cause they refuse to adjust to the educational needs of their students, the Worth Commis- sion on Educational Planning ras told here Tuesday. Alvin Edwards, a rural Coun- ,y of Lethbridge student from Kate Andrews High School In said students were 'totally turned off and bored" iv high school as it is now es- tablished, and that there was no encouragement for them to learn new knowledge for the sake of learning it. "Our schools teach us to seek 'he almighty he said, "and it teaches us that we should depend absolutely on our teachers for all of our in- formation." He also criticized (tie Alber- school system for insisting that all subjects mathe- matics, English and everything else automatically required the same 80-mtnute periods, in- stead of sessions of varying lengths. The Grade 12 student's re- marks came on the final day of commission hearings in Leth- jridge. Another brief called for de- velopment of a government-fi- nanced kindergarten system :or Alberta that would allow lo- cal school boards to operate dndergartens for pre-school cliildren as young as three years old. The brief, presented by the Gingerbread House Co-operative Nursery School, said kindergar- ten training was necessary to provice reading readiness, so- cial adjustment and elimination of Grade 1 failure. The early training is needed so a child is exposed to educa- tion "before he has hardened into a pattern in which he can't enjoy education, and will there- fore only be trained in his fu- ture like an automaton." ex- plained Mrs. Dorothy Beckel. mother of a student at the kin- dergarten. A brief from the Lethbridge Community College called for a greater co-operation between colleges and universities, and said colleges must be free to offer all programs that their lo- cal community needs. A new financial system is also needed, the brief says, to properly support the extensive and often expensive vocational and special training programs offered by colleges particu- larly LCC. Commission chairman Dr. Walter Worth commented that he was aware the college sys- tem is "being hampered by the medieval and snobbish atti- tudes of the university system respect to its transfer re- quirements for college students seeking university entrance." The Alberta Teachers' As- sociation provincial guidance council proposed an extensive modification of counselling sys- tems in Alberta schools. Qean Up Campaign Ending The city's annual spring clean-up, delayed by last month's strike, should be com- pleted today. A spokesman for the city's engineering department said crews have finished work in zone four and should have lit- tle difficulty in picking up all refuse in zone five today. Work has been proceeding more quickly, he said, since the crews moved to the north side, closer to the sanitary land fill. Zone five is north of the CP Rail tracks, between 13 St. and 28 St. N. The department has asked city residents taking garbage to the land fill to use plastic bags and to make sure they are tightly closed. Every at- tempt is being made at (he new site to cut down on odors and problems with flying paper. The spokesman added that the department would appreci- ate people using the plastic bags for garbage placed in garbage cans for regular pick- up. Such co-operation from city residents cuts down on the amount of time and labor costs involved in handling the garb- age at the land fill site, he said. The ATA brief says many of the problems young people face are unique and entirely unlike (hose faced by other genera- tions, so specialized training is required for guidance counsel- lors. The "intense agony" of com- munication difficulties between today's youth and their par- ents' generation stems from the different and sometimes in- sincere viewpoints the older people hold, the brief adds. More and better school coun- selling services are needed to overcome these problems. The Lethbridge Allied Arts Council told the commission that the arts must be taught in schools starting as early as Grade 1, and by qualified teach- ers. The brief says, however, that an education certificate is not necessarily the qualification such teachers need: recognized artists, actors and writers could be asked to leach stu- dents. A brief from the Southern Al- berta Educational Television Association recommended ex- tensive use of ETV equipment in the classroom, with a pro- vincial government co-opera- tion and financial assistance. Other briefs were presented by Mrs. Ann Weintraub, of Lethbridge, on behalf of the Na- tional Council of Jewish Wom- en; by Clayton Bricker, of Leth- bridge, a former school teach- er; and by J. A. Spencer, of Magrath.
