HALE OPTICAL 8 COMPANY LTD 307 6th SI. S. Gary Martin Dispensing Optician 327-7152 Olson Ban MEDICINE HAT (CP) About 500 students demon- strated Thursday to protest a school board decision prohibit- ing federal agriculture min- ister H. A. (Bud) Olson from speaking to students during school hours. The students, from several junior and senior high schools, gathered in a downtown park for two hours and were sup- ported by Grant Notley, New Democratic Party leader in Al- berta. "The basic purpose of educa- tion is not to train for a job but to learn how to Mr. Notley, who travelled from Ed- monton for the demonstration, told the cheering students. Mr. Olson had been asked to speak to a social studies class at Medicine Hat High School but the city school board ear- lier I'etoed the appearance say- ing the speech would be a one- sided political event. Mr. Notley said the students were "perfectly right" in pro- testing the decision. He told the gathering: "Pub- lic affairs is one of the most important fields. H you're going to learn about any sub- ject, especially public affairs, you've got to have access to politicians." an honest attempt to solve problems that were at least 100 years old and which the entire Canadian public wants solved, be said. Mr. Trudeau was replying to a brief front the Alberta Indian Association that rejects the gov- ernment policy outright and sets out alternative proposals. About 200 Indians gathered in the railway committee room of the Parliament Buildings where Mr. Trudeau and 14 members of his cabinet were presented with the Alberta counter-proposals. Mr. Trudeau took sharp ex- ception to parts of the brief that accuse the government of bad faith cr attempting to mislead the Indian people. "You can say we are igno- rant, dumb or stupid but don't say we're dishonest or trying to said the prime minis- was no way negotia- ter. There tions between the government and Indians would have a chance to succeed without mu- tual trust, he said. Mr. Trudeau obviously won friends from his Indian audi- ence. Several times in a speech lasting about 15 minutes he was interrupted by applause. But an Indian spokesman, David Courchcne of Manitoba, said later before the Commons Indian affairs committee he would wait for government ac- tion. That would mean more than words. Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien told the delegation that the government policy paper was merely a series of propos- als. He welcomed the Alberta suggestions and looked forward to receiving other briefs from Indians in the other provinces. The government white paper proposed, among other things, Indians receive education and other services from the prov- inces the same as other Canadi- ans. The Indian Act would be repealed and the Indian affairs branch closed in stages. The Alberta brief said the pol- icy would mean that Indian lands would pass into the hands of others within a generation or so and Indians would wind up living in city slums. Indians should be given the resources to provide their own schools. A multi-million-dollar development fund should be set up to develop reserves. Instead of doing away with the Indian affairs branch, it should be changed to be more alive to the needs of Indians. In- dians should continue to have special status. And a full-time minister should be created for the people. NEW GROUP WANTED A new consultation group should be set up from several government departments to ne- gotiate with Indians. The group within the Indian affairs depart- ment should be dissolved. The Indian paper said the new policy already was being imple- mented and this should be stopped. "Before anything else can be achieved, however, the Cana- dian government must recog- nize the historical, legal, moral constitutional responsibil- in relation to aboriginal rights and treaty President Harold Cardinal of the Alberta group said. Mr. Cardinal called for a "truly impartial claims com- mission, appointed after con- sultation with the Indians, with broad terms, wide powers and whose judgments would be bind- ing on both parties." This, he said, was the solution proposed by the Liberals in the 19G3 general election. Fire Hazai-d 'Very High' In Most Areas EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta department of lands and forests Thursday banned open fires in most parts of the prov- nce. Department officials said the forest fire hazard rating is "very high to extreme" in all but a few regions. Six fires were burning Thursday but all were under control. The ban does not include fires in approved outdoor fire- places and provincial camp- grounds. IRAKE RELINE SPECIAL Our trained mechanics will install quality brake linings on ail 4 wheels.

OTTAWA (CP) Armed with a bicultural president, the Boyai Canadian Legion ends its 23rd national convention today with some of the old soldiers warily eyeing the future for the OpO-stroitg veterans' organiza- tion. The new president. Montreal Judge ,f. Edsnond Roche, 63, said after his acclamation elec- tion that he is not preoccupied ivith the long-term Legion fu- ture placed in doubt by mem- bership deaths. But others among the delegates were not of the same mind. Some found that prospect unacceptable and believe the Legion should be kept alivo even after the last war veteran is gone. "In 10 years time, the picture will be clearer and then perhaps icmc action will be the judge said.
