The decision to re-open the financially-plagued centre by using volunteer staff was reach- ed by the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta board of directors Tuesday. The decision was made after board members heard various reports that the centre's closure was depriving many people, mostly natives, of a place to go in the city. Tiny Tobin, director of pre- ventive sen-ices in the city also urged the board to open the centre's doors quickly. He said the city was interested in see- ing it open as soon as possible.

Rotating volunteer staff from the Local Incentives Program sponsored and Friendship Centre based flnti alcoholism program conducted by the Na- tive Counselling Services organ- ization will keep the facility open until aL leasL the end ol May. The decision to open was not unanimous among board mem- bers, and was passed by a ma- jority of one. Fear of continued extensive delays in obtaining the centre's federal-provincial budget from provincial administrators could force another closure in the fu- ture, held back some board members in the vote. It was noted that Bruce Raw- son, deputy minister of social health and development has re- i cently promised that some em- jobs requested to meet at the family j Judge L. W.

In adition to the fines Olsen and Blomme received sentences of 30 days each in jail because evidence presented indicated they had been ring- leaders in the incident. Andrews got an additional 10 days in jail and Judge Hudson noted he had been specifically indicated in the disturbance only once. Judge Hudson passed no additional sentence for Swallow and indicated Swallow, an Uni- ted States citizen, will be de- ported "therefore no further problems w n u 1 d be expected from him." ergency funds will be available for the broke friendship centre within the next two weeks. Also, Lethbridge city council will soon decide whether or not to provide the centre with a operating grant. Those voting against the de- cision to re-open said, these monies could not be relied upon until they were actually receiv- ed. They complained unkepl promises had been made before and it was provincial delays which caused the initial closure of the centre due to money problems. However, those board mem- bers who voted to re-open lhe centre felt too much publicity had been given lo the federal- provincial delays to continue the delays much longer.
