Chief Walter P. Deiter of the National Indian Brotherhood made the charge in an address to a joint annual meeting of the Northeastern Anthropological Association and the American Ethnological Society. Walter Currie, president of the Indian-Eskimo Association of Canada, said the new policy "has fundamentally been re- jected by the native peoples of this country." The government has proposed to repeal the Indian Act, wipe out treaty rights and turn over Indian reserves to the Indians. Responsibility for such services as health and education would go to the provinces. Chief Deiter, a Saskatchewan Cree, accused the government of implementing the proposals without consulting the Indians.

Letters Say Labor Men In Alberta Work With Reds TORONTO Photos- tatic copies of two letters that appear to have been typed on Communist party letterhead are being circulated within the trade union movements of On- tario and Alberta naming labor personalities as being engaged in Communist activities. Bruce Magnuson, labor secre- tary of the Communist party, ssjd Thursday in an interview the letters are forgeries aimed at smearing reputations. The two letters, dated Jan. 9, are addressed to "Comrades in the trade union movement" and end "With comradely greet- ings" and the typed signature "Central Executive Committee Communist Party of Canada." The Ontario letter names three Ontario trade unionists as "comrades" who it says will help co-ordinate Communist ac- tivities at tile Canadian Labor Congress convention in Edmon- ton May 18-22. The letter in Alberta names three Alberta trade unionists as being engaged similarly. Both letters say over-all direction of Communist party work at Ed- monton will be the responsibil- ity of Mr. Magnuson. SUGGESTS RED-BAITING "We would hot be so stupid as to put out such infantile non- Mr. Magnuson said. He suggested that unknown persons in the labor movement with ac- cess to unionists' addresses are sending out the letters as a form of Red-baiting. In Ottawa, William Dodge, secretary-treasurer of the C1C, said several copies of each let- ter have been sent to him by union members who received them. "V7e don't tttnfc they are for- Mr. Dodge said. "And until it is established that they aren't real we have to assume there is an organized ef- fort by the Communist party to operate at the convention." Two cf the three unionists named in the Ontario letter de- nied they are members cf the Communist parly, or engaged in Communist activities or doing any co-ordinating work for the party at the convention. One was Gordon Lambert, vice-president of the St. Cathar- ines, Ont, local of .the United Automobile Workers. "Those letters are out-and-out he said. The other was Bill Longridge, a Toronto representative of the United Steelworkers of Amer- ica, He termed the letters "slanderous smears." David Archer, president of the Ontario Federation of Labor, said he suspects similar letters may be circulating in other provinces. Mr. Archer said he had not paid much -attention to the let- ters since be does not consider the Communists a threat to the trade union movement. Mr. Dodge said Communists would be "an exceedingly small minority" among the dele- gates expected at Edmonton. Two unions expelled from CLC during the 1950s when Communist-led unions were being United Fish- ermen and Allied Workers Union and the United Electrical Workers of ap- plied for re-entry into the par- ent labor body. During tlie 19G8 convention, the CLC deleted a section of its constitution which denied affili- ation to organizations controlled or dominated by CoTmmmiMs, Fascists or other totalitariam. In its place a clause wag in- serted, yet to be tested as to its application, denying affiliation to organizations controlled or dominated by "any totalitarian agencies.
