'White backlash'' possible if Indians aren't cautious Churchill students "win Banff awards Capital budget on council agenda By RUDY IIAUGENEDEn Herald Staff Wrilcr Unless native people take more interest in costly federal tax supported programs a white backlash could develop, said Wayne Wells a co-opera- tive development officer for the provincial agriculture de- partment. Mr. Wells, a Blackfoot In- dian, severely criticized staff members of the southern Al- berta Indian News Media for 1 not turning out to their own an- nual meeting. Asked by tlie organization, with a paid membership of about 300, to provide an evalua- tion of the two-day annual meet which began Friday at the University of Lethbridge, he laid it on the line to the less than 30 people present. "If you can't get Indian peo- ple to attend their own meet- ings without paying them, the organization won't he said. Indian people are in a posi- tion where they have "to prove they run their own affairs" be- fore expecting increased tax supported monetary assistance, i Mr Wells blasted the Indian News Media which prints Ihe Kainai News and also operates a radio broadcast program run over many southern Alberta radio stations for the lack- er attendance by staff mem- bers. The turnout to tlie meeting was not "a good reflection1' for (he five southern Alberta re- serves the group represents. He accused the Indian News Media ot not respecting its board of directors and "would like to see an atti- tude change." Although the meeting saw a list of amendments lo the group's constitution passed. Mr. Wells said not enough had been done. However, in defense of those people in attendance, he said, Indians lend lo close up at meetings. Much of the important infor- mation was passed in h o I e 1 rooms where people held in- formal "person to person con- tads and opened Mr. Wells said. Marvin Fox. president of the Indian N e w s Media board ol directors outlined the reasons for the lack of attendance. Winston Churchill High School left the provincial high school drama festival with two awards and a lot of good com- ments Irom adjudicator Gill Bunch of Victoria, B.C. Lily Larter directed (lie play, Impromptu, by Tad Mosel, and won the award for best visual present ation. Albert Azzara, one of a cast of four, took the bcsl support- ing actor award Other mem- bers of Ihe cast: were Dennis de Grool, Susan Frier and Lynda Rosenfell. The production was runner- up for the best play award, with Peace River High School winning top position under tho direction of Jim Robert Shaw.

(em is irreversible. Today, 80 Our primary objective will per cent of the world trade is be for better organization, Mr. Fox said. between countries that have chosen the metric system. A revised capita! budget is on the agenda lor city coun- cil consideration tonight. Several alterations in the budget have been suggested to accommodate financing of a new S2.G9 million multi-purpose arena within the next hra years. A proposal concerning West Letlibridge development will also he considered, with em- phasis on a financing scheme for that project other than from the capital budget. It has been recommended in capital expenses for bridge and road construction, storm sewers and lake con- struction on the wesl side be removed from lhe capital bud- get and financed on a "pay as you go" basis, out of a new subdivision account. Another revision moves the cost estimate for Lhe new li- brary to SI million from With the revisions, the city finance direclor includes a 2S5.000 bmlecied expense in 197-1 for a new arena, instead of the previous alloca- tion. The difference between the hiidseled amount and lhe esti- mated total cost of the arena is figured with a possible 000 college capital grant from lhe province, from the community i c e fund, from settlement on the old j arena fire claim and i from sale of the old arena I property. Finance director All i P I er Findlay notes in a lelter to council the arena consultants did not figure the annual debt charges in with the estimated operating expenses of a new arena. Those charges would be J2M.905 a year on lhe acceler- ated program (building the arena by December, 19731 and on the normal pro gram, to iiavc the arena built by June, 1974. Mr. Findlay also points out the financing of ihe arena light have to come from Ihe .'sale open of debentures on lhe arena. By 197b, the total bond- ed debt will increase to 2 market. "Considerable should be given lo thai approach, he suggests. By selling dclrenlurcs on the open market, the city would not ac'd to its bonded debl, which is "increasing al an million, per capita, Mr. Kindlay estimates. Mayor Andy Anderson plans only budgetary considerations for tonight's meeting, with spe- cific reference to West Leih- alarming rate." In 1967, the I bridge and the new arena, total bonded debt was Council will ask lor written million or per capita. The estimated total bonded debl as of 1972 is S17.5 million, per capita and based on Ihe normal program for construction of the submissions from the public concerning the arena for tha May 23rd council meeting, The meeting tonight will be- gin at in council chambers.
