Jensen, S. Pohn, Lethbridge adds, but commercial development on the reserve is hampered by proximity to Pincher Creek, 10 miles west of Brocket. "I know the Co-op in Pincher Creek has 150 families from here doing their shopping in Pincher, and the IGA has 50." "With only 300 families on the reserve, that doesn't leave very much to shop Mr. Smith says Band manager Henry Potts admits the band hasn't "real- ly done any intensive investigating" for a tenant to operate a store, but agrees that reserve residents have traditionally shopped at Pincher Creek. The band may operate a store itself, he adds, but only as a "last resort." But with or without a store, the Crow Lodge is expected to provide a focus for develop- ment on the reserve. Surrounding the million lodge, being built by Watson Construction of Calgary, are 18 homes purchased by the band last year from Kainai In- dustries, the Blood-owned sec- BERGMAN'S NEW LOCATION 9th AVENUE NORTH CONDUCT CIUHT Just got on KMMMS FLOOD COVEMMS MO CARPET SPECIAL WAREHOUSE PRICES HhAvtnm North Md go Etitl OMN Yt TIL tiOO tional home factory in Stan- doff.

The first phase included the provision water, sewer, power and gas and the installation of 18 new homes. Scheduled for completion in October, the project has been delayed by what band manager Potts calls a "hangup in paperwork between CMHC and Indian af- fairs." The Peigan band plans to add 34 Kainai-buill houses to the townsite this year in an attempt to keep abreast of an acute need for housing on the reserve, Mr. Potts says. "A survey by Stanley and Associates said we needed 42 new homes in 1972 and that we would need another. 14 each year."

All parents are welcome: 85 attended Labor school on weekend More than 85 students final- ly registered for the Lethbridge and district labor council's annual weekend labor school, registrar Al Packard said Saturday. Three courses were taught at the school, which ran Thursday and Friday evenings and all day Saturday. Training for union officers was run by Jim Shewchuk, a Calgary based Canadian Labor Congress represen- tative, collective bargaining by Harley Horn, a Canadian Union of Public Employees representative also from Calgary, and advanced shop steward training by Al Knipfel, an International Electrical Workers Union representative from Kitchener, Ont. Gil Borgford, CLC educa- tion representative for the Prairies, was the school direc- tor. Mr. Borgford said the three courses are basic tools for the labor movement, and most ac- tive union members take them at one time or another. Collective bargaining shows how contracts with manage- ment are reached, shop stewards have to police agreements to make sure they are lived up to, and without a good union local they fall apart, he said.
