Mitchell Sharp's son wins school battle at Brooks Immigration rises 12 per cent BROOKS (CP) The demonstrators and External Affaift Minister Mitchell Sharp's son left in triumph. About 100 students and par- ents jammed the Nowell County School trustees office to Oppose what they called a "punitive transfer" of Bassa- no school teacher Noel Sharp to Springside Hutterite Col- ony. The trustees had called Mr. Sharp, of Bassano, in the northwest section of the coun- ty, a "trbouleymaker" in the school and said he would be transferred to the colony, also in the county. The trustees had ordered the transfer on grounds that Mr. Sharp, a French teacher at the Bassano school and son of the external affairs minister, did not have a good working relationship with Percy Collins, principal of the school. Mr. Sharp also refused to sign a retraction prepared for him by the school super- intendent. Mr. Sharp had written to newspapers attack- ing the way the trustees use educational funds. He made an appeal before the trustees against the transfer and demanded a full explanation. "When a man's profession- al career is at stake I think the reasons should be given to the accused." And his supporters pre- sented a petition signed by 390 of Bassano's 800 residents opposing the transfer. They said Mr. Sharp has been a good teacher and is not in their opinion a trouble-maker. Bassano mayor Dick Plumer also told the trustees that his town council the transfer. He said Mr. Sharp has been "a very good councillor" in Bassano for two years. Last week, about 100 of the Bassano school's 200 students picketed the county council in Brooks, about 90 miles northeast of Lethbridge, de- manding Mr. Sharp's rein- statement. ECLIPSE.WATCHERS STIR WITCHCRAFT NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) Americans preparing to study a solar eclipse encountered witchcraft today among spear-carrying tribesmen sus- picious that the scientists were about to blank out the sun. Thousands of amateur ecl- ipse-watchers began trav- elling north into Kenya's fron- tier desert. Nairobi rent-a-tent operators said they were booked full, and authorities trucked water and gasoline supplies to remote camp sites. The longest total eclipse of the sun for the next 177 years will sweep eastward across Africa Saturday in a mile path from Brazil to the Indian Ocean. Hundreds of as- tronomers from a dozen coun- tries will observe the eclipse in northern Kenya and Mau- ritania, on ships iu the Atlan- tic Ocean and in airplanes fly- ing along the eclipse path. The eclipse will not be visible in North America. Scientists and Roman Cath- olic mission priests attempted to calm tribesmen at Lo- yengalani, an oasis beside Lake Rudolf where about 80 American astronomers' have set up equipment on a point of land. A spokesman said a witch doctor among the warlike Samburu and Trukarja had spread the word that the for- eigners were going to cause the eclipse, not merely study it. Primitive Kenyan tribes re- gard eclipses as omens of drought and disease. The ter- rifying darkness when the moon passed between the earth and sun nearly 100 years ago is still told in leg- ends as "the day the sun stopped shining." OTTAWA (CP) Immigra- tion to Canada rose by almost 12 per cent in the first quarter of 1973, compared with the first three months of 1972, the immi- gration department reported Wednesday. Total immigration was for the first quarter compared to newcomers during the same period last year. Immigrants from the U.S. again led statistics but with slightly fewer compared with during January, February and March, 1972. Quarter statistics showed a continuing movement of Ugan- dan Asians to aftermath of a massive ex- pulsion of Asians from that East African country last fall. There were 513 Ugandans who arrived early this year, ;
