Although participation in the games has been restricted to teams and athletes from Uie four western provinces and two northern territories this year, an all-Indian hockey team from Nova Scotia will participate on an exhibition basis. Teams and athletes from throughout Canada and the United Statti have clamored for information about the games and ttie procedure ne- cessary to participate. This year's games are limit- ed in size about GOO western [Canadian athletes and tlie I number of events played. A spokesman for Ihe Indian Sports Olympic Association o! Alberta, sponsors of the games, said, this is due to the limited finances available because both levels of senior government have not yet seen fit to contri- bute any money towards the winter games. Game organizers wiil study the success of next month's venture to determine tlie even- tual growth capacity of future Native Winter Games. Although tte amount of money available is limited, INSPOL and its Indian asso- ciates are determined to make a success of the games. They want to show the gov- ernment and society as a whole that Indians can succeed in a as Chinook works Tlie Chinook, melting thou- sands of tons of piled-up snow, has flooded many basements hi the city and sent public works crews on the run.

Mr. Temple said the situation Is improving today, Iielped by the cool-off during the night. "The majority of the potential calls for assistance were met he said.

Percy Rcss, Ottawa chief executive of tlie Boy Scouts of Canada Na- tioral Council, scid Friday. The Canadian Scout move- ment has not launched an anti- drug campaign because an On- tario drug addiction commis- sion advised against it two years ago. Youth is tired of hearing about the dangers of drug abuse, the commission is re- ported lo have told tlie Seoul Council. The decision not to conduct a program was reached after (he National Scout Council had con- sulted with the group about ini- iialing an anti-drug campaign, Mr. Ross said. T h c commission advised against it because of the large number of similar campaigns already under way. Mr. Ross said, the kids prob- ably know more about drugs than many so-called experts campaigning against it. The Scout Council was ad- vised to make scouting pro- grams "as exciting as possible to keep youths busy." Keeping young people active may be Uie answer to ttie drug problem among youtlis, he said. And the Canadian Scouiing movement has up-dated its pro- grams to keep in tune with to- day's youth, .Mr. Ross added. Speaking at a news confcr- erce here, as part of a western Canadian tour to discover com- munity acceptance of the movcmenl, he said scouting is accepted in varying degrees. It depends largely on Uie quality and quantity of leader- ship available.

The CTV Wide World of Sports will have television cam- era CTCV. s at the games r the spokesman said. Other media have also dis- played interest in covering the Native Winter Games. The spokesman said, because of the current size of the games and the interest shown in them, it is important that the games arc successful. People will be watching how the games corns off and will for- mulate altitudes towards In- dians as a result of them, he said. If the games are successful, the Indian image should be vastly improved, On the other ho said, if don't, the Indian image will worsen. A number of national and ti-n ationa 1 corporations have contributed 'ligh tly towards the games, with the new of in- creasing their contributions as the event progresses annually. INSPOL has not approached the department of Indian af- fairs for financial support be- cause it does not want to under the department's wing, IN7SP OL is an autonomous group which does not have to answer to any parent body. It feels that any Native Win- ter Games participation by tha department of Indian affairs would entail using money cur- rently budgeted for recreation development and facilities for various bands.
