Two you won't want to miss are the Green Acres and Golden Acres teas held at the lodges each year. Administrator Den Le Baron called to remind us the dates for the Golden Acres tea is May 12 and Green Acres May 19. Time for both is 2-4:30. Another call was received from a women's organization president wanting to know if a certain date was clear for a tea in May. I referred her to the travel and Convention Association which keeps a calendar of events for southern Alberta. This calendar could be used more by the public. Get your organization on the mailing list and your event on its pages.

It seems like a long way to go for a bridge game, but it's surprising to what lengths bridge players will go for a game. The place? Tape!, Formosa. The tournament will be held May 6 to May 16 for the Bermuda bowl, open pairs, ladies pairs, and mixed pairs. Just dig out $1,082 for transportation, hotels and sightseeing to Tokyo, Kyoto and Hong Kong and you're all set to go. The world may not be ready to recognize China politically, but the Chinese teams can't be ignored in the world of bridge. The Italians have a system all their own - and a privates observation is that any system is only as successful as the memory of your partner . . . and think how disconcerting it must be to keep your mind on your contract with Omar. Sharif at the same table . . . he's an excellent bridge player. . . . *  * It seems there are a few lamb buyers wondering what to do with the half of lamb sitting in the freezer. Here's one yummy recipe you can try, but for heaven's sakes, don't let your reducing instructor know about it, or she'll flip her vibrator belt. Brown six shoulder or sirloin lamb chops in small amount of hot fat and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drain off fat. Add one can condensed con-comme, c. chopped celery, % c. sliced green onions, tops, % tsp. thyme. Cover and simmer 30-45 minutes or until meat is done. Stack chops to one side of your pan. Drain a 3-ounce can of mushrooms, reserving liquid. Stir the liquid into 3 tbps. all-purpose flour and blend. Gradually stir into consomme. Cook and stir until thick. Add mushrooms and one tbps. parley flakes. Top each chop with a portion of one cup sour cream, cover and heat about three minutes. You now have six snow-capped lamb chops, ready for the table. If you're in doubt about the calories, let your contours be your guide.

Those were the words of the Hon. Robert Stanbury, Progressive Conservative member of parliament and minister without portfolio responsible for citizenship and Information Canada, as the addressed delegates at the National Native Women's Conference in Edmonton this week. "We no longer live in a world where Father (the government) necessarily knows best," said Mr. Stanbury. "What be knows is, at least, subject to discussion." Mr. Stanbury quoted Mary Ann Lavalee, keynote speaker of the 1968 Voice of Alberta Native Women's Society conference, when she said, "of all the people in this vast country, no one has been more downtrodden, more overlooked, and bypassed, and more maligned than Indian women." "She did not exaggerate," he said. Mr. Stanbury stated that native women have suffered double discrimination, as natives, and as women, but he added that they have bravely taken up the fight on two fronts - at home in the family, and outside the home in the community. Mr.Stanbury told the 200 women attending the conference from all parts of Canada, that "you have a vital role in the present struggle of native people for a better life." Mr. Stanbury quoted one of his parliamentary colleagues, Len Marchand, an Indian member of parliament from Kam-loops as saying "where the Indian culture is strong, the community is strong, the indivi- CARPET and UNO (Complete InstallariontD Free Estimate*!

Where the culture is weak; the communities are weak, the individuals accept a poorer life, and do not thrive in the world around them." Responsibility for loss of culture was pieced on the native women themselves by Mr. Stanbury, "It is the women of the community who interpret the past for their children, he said. "When Indian mothers are able to strengthen their children, it is bound to be a better community." He said he is impressed by the dynamic growth of native organizations in this country. "Where once you were disorganized, now you are organized," he said. "Whereas a few years ago, there were few to speak for the native cause, and now you have many capable spokesmen." According to Mr. Stanbury, three new important organizations have recently been formed. " The Native Council of Canada will work in the interests of and speak for the Metis and non  status Indians in our country. The Eskimos of the north last month formed their own national association, Inuit Ta-pirisat of Canada, and this week the founding meeting of the Ontario Metis Association took place at Thunder Bay." Mr. Stanbury said $1.6 million has been provided to In- women dian, Metis, and Eskimo associations in the form of sustaining grants this year, as opposed to only $55,000 last year. "This is indicative of both the growth of your organizations and the willingness on the part of the Government of Canada to respond to their needs," ho stated. "Most important," he added, "is that these grants were not tied to specific projects that we (the government) dreamed up, but rather were to enable native people to/do 'their own thing' in our national life." Mr. Stanbury said it is encouraging that cultural centre proposals have been conceived by native people, thought out by native people, and will be run by native people for native people. He told delegates "self  respect must begin with self-help and self - knowledge; dignity begins with responsibility, and with the freedom of men and women choosing their own paths to full citizenship." That, he stressed, is why the first National Conference of Native Women Is so important.
