Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta parti Quebecois Leader Rene Levetque aaid In Vancouver his "oM friend" Secretary of State Gerard PeMter seems to be looking for a way to quit the federal Liberal government over its handling of the FLQ crisis. , "PeUeUer with his book snows be hat a conscience about the whole affair," Mr. Levesque Mid. "He seems to be looking for a way to get out-the way be has been doing things." The separatist leader was referring to Mr. Pe"etier's con-troversial book The October Crisis, published last week. * * * Prime Minister John Vorster said at Cape Town he is willing to discuss South Africa's apartheid policy of race separation with leaders of the black nations of Africa. " "I welcome the opportunity to discuss it," the white-minority leader said. "More nonsense has been written about separate development than anv other subject I know." * * * The .Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipal i t i e s made a mistake in passing an English - only resolution recently, Senator Hates Argue (L - Saskatchewan) said in Ottawa. "This kind of resolution plays into the hands of the Parti Quebecois, the FLQ, and those who say English Canada d o e s not really understand French Canada." Sena^r '~ - said.  �  ID* Attorney - General D. V. Heald solemnly announced in the legislature at Regina he will not seek re  election. The member for Lumsden since 1964 when the Liberal's swept into power to end 20 years of CCF rule, gave no reason for his decision.    Unless steps are taken to preserve Canada, "it will disappear and become part of the United. States," publisher Mel Hurtlg of Edmonton, a found-fag member of t*��� Cc~-"""-"<� for an Independent Canada, said in Halifax. RENE LEVESQUE ... Talks About Book Edmonton population increases EDMONTON (CP) - The city's population increased by 13,065 during 1970 to a total of 435,503, an increase of 3.1 per cent compared with 1969, the city election office said yesterday. A census report on the result of a survey last fall showed the area population for the city area north of the North Saskatchewan River increased by 12,546 during 1970 compared with a growth of only 539 persons on the southside. The total figure shows the city has almost doubled its population during the last 15 years. In 1956 the population was 223.-549. The total population in 1969 was 422.418 persons. Mr. Hurtig said that unless politicians are prepared to take important measures, Canada will not survive a second century. He is on a coast-to-coast speaking tour to promote support for the committee. He told a university audience the committee has gained a lot of support and has "over 150,000 signatures on our petitions and local committees in every major city." * �  Police have extended the right to arrest without warrant from an exceptional one to a way of life, says Senator Harper Prowse (L - Alberta). He introduced for second reading the government's bail and arrest reform bill, which would limit jailing on arrest to cases where it was unavoidable. Senator Prowse said there has been shocking abuse of a privilege extended to police not for their convenience but for protection of the public. For instance, more than 95 per cent of suspects in their mid-teens were arrested and jailed without warrant. "Maybe this is why there is a generation gap." Officers freed BEIRUT, Lebanon (Reuter) - Air Marshal Harden Takriti, dismissed as vice-president of Iraq in October, was assassinated in Kuwait today, Arab diplomatic sources said. Wedntsday, March $1, 1971 - THI IfTHMIDO! HERALD - 27 Appeal expected in Hutterite case HIGH RIVER (CP) - An appeal and further tests by Hut-terites of the Alberta School Act is expected following a decision Tuesday when a member of the sect was convicted of keeping his daughter out of school. Paul Stahl of the Cayley Colony, 50 miles south of Calgary, was fined $25 and costs on a charge of unlawfully preventing his daughter Martha from attending the colony school last September. The charge was made when she was 15 but she is now 16 and legally not required to attend school. The Hutterite faith maintains that children should not attend school after age 15. The charge resulted from the 1967 revision of the school act raising the compulsory attendance age from 15 to 16. ONLY SECOND It is believed the conviction against Mr. Stahl is only the second in the province since the school act revision. A Granum Hutterite spent 10 days in jail in 1969 on a simi lar charge, while charges against two others in the Leth-bridge and Oyen districts were dropped after agreements were worked out with local school boards. Attendance officer Norman LeGaarden laid the charge last October after Miss Stahl's absence was reported by the principal of the one-room school. In earlier testimony, Hutter- ite preacher John Wertz of Lethbridge said the, sect is "religiously bound to obey God and the government - but if a choice has to be made, God's laws come first." Firings spark protests at first Indian school ST. PAUL (CP) - Blue Quills School, which is to become Canada's first Indian-operated school Sept. 1, returned to near normal Tuesday after a four - day sit-in arising from staff firings. The school, near this northeastern Alberta community, is to be taken over Sept. 1 by the Saddle Lake - Athabasca Native Education Council from the Indian affairs department. Covering grades 4 to 9, it is residential and also accommodates day students. Students occupied administrative offices in the residential portion of the school Thursday to Sunday before thev were ordered to leave by ROMP. The students were protesting the dismissals of recreation director Diana Harpe and school accountant Albert Harpe, a brother-in-law of Mrs. Harpe. Her husband Roland Harpe, the school administrator, resinned after the dismissals. Council chairman Stanley Redcrow said Mrs. Harpe and Albert were dismissed because they instigated the protest last week over the firing two weeks earlier of the resident matron who is Indian. The council said it would not give a reason fw the firing unless the matron wanted to make it public. Only Indian students attend the school Mrs. Harpe is seeking assis-atnce from the department of Indian affairs to board the students in St. Paul. The school has 102 students in residence and another 67 day students. Similar charges against Hutterite members Peter and Sam Entz were put over to April 20. Hutterites, a Protestant sect, live comparatively isolated lives in their colonies, where they hold all goods, land and buildings in common. Student fund provides job for professor SASKATOON (CP) - Students at the University of Saskatchewan are continuing to protest the university's refusal to rehire an assistant professor but they have chosen a quieter way to do it. Cleeve Briere, student union president, said the students have established a fund designed to allow Prof. John Richards to continue teaching two sections of a political economics course. When it was announced Prof. Richards would not be rehired because there were other, more qualified applicants for his post more than SCO students staged a sit - in that disrupted the economics and political science department for several days. NDP passes halfway mark in candidates EDMONTON (CP) - The New Democratic Party passed the half-way mark in nominations for the next provincial general election with the nomination of Alvin Leonard Har-macy of Windfield as the candidate in the new riding of Drayton Valley.
