There was just such a for tho Norrises in April when tho senalor called to say ho was coming, but tliis time with friends. Chief Jimmy Sewid and his wife were coming along for a meal on Saturday before returning to their B.C. village on curl of Vancouver Island. Chief Sewid had just been invested with the Order ot Canada lor bis book (Quests Never 1 Leave Hungry and for his con-Iribulions lo Llic B.C. fishing in-cluslry. Chief Sewid has part lip In five vessels foiling the Pacific coast. The guests were treated royally, but Senator Williams was treated as one of the family. He Is Ion. Ten years ago be was made Cheryl Noiris' honorary grandpa when she asked: "Can I call him grandpa Her falher was working in Burnaby B.C., al the lime. Today she laughs about Ihc whole situation, but Senator Williams is still her grandpa and will always be called by that name. He was appointed lo Ihe Senate last December. The first Indian senator was Ihe late .lames Gladstone ot Alberta, a good friend of Senator Williams. Scnalor Williams says be was probably appointed to Ihc Senate because of his decn in-v o 1 v o m e n t Ihe Nalivc Brethren of B.C., which he calls the only self-supporting, ''independent Indian organization in Canada." Senator Williams has been president for 12 years. He now is u member of the Senate's conslilulional affairs committee and is studying the parole system ol federal prisons. The senalor says he has dis covered in Ihe few months of his study that 40 per cent of the people in federal prisons in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Brilish Columbia are Indians, lie suggested Ihe cause of the high percentage of Indians in the prisons is the lack ol legal assistance other than legal aid. "The Indian has very little faith in legal aid. He pleads guilty whether he is or not. lie j'cct'pts the sentence when pronounced. And, unfortunately, he becomes a repeater. In prison there is no longer any responsibility required for survival a person is a number instead of an individual." Senator Williams asks: "Wilh less than one per cent of the lotal population ol Canada being Indian, how is it that 40 per cent of the inmates arc He says he will be asking some embarrassing questions and pressing for answers of the department of justice if need be about Ihe Indian r CANAL WITH NO WATER Native workmen walk along the dried up bed of a massive irrigation canal in the Howrah distrid of Bengal which is suffering from drought in Ihe areo. Villagers have been digging holes in Ihe bed of ihe canal to galher drinking waler. These men are government workmen engaged in Iho digging of ihe canal. Jim IHIaniai'lcr key man in fo except hey force the car down inslead of up. However, early qualification runs at Indianapolis saw all three Parnellis run without this feature and with the coolers relocated directly atop the air cooling ducts. Another unique feature of the Parnelli is its progressive-rale suspension, providing for much greater variance in the height of nose cone. This suspension has a travel of four inches up seen in Formula I or Can-Am cars, and four down, more like that "Tlu's progressive-rate suspension is my chief Dilamarter says. "Most people think it's simple to set a car to turn continuously in one this isn't the case. "When a machine turns Unser left and right, you simply set the suspension for the most-agreeable mean. On a onc-direc-lion circuit like Imly, you must sol for maximum stability m lhat direction. The closer you come lo the optimum varies directly with the lap times your car can obtain.

Mrl.AUGJHJN INDIANAPOLIS (CP) Jim Dilamarler is one of the best at his job-programming, low-slung cars to carry Ihcir drivers as safely as possible at speeds approaching 200 miles an hour. And despite Ihc [act that he sets up lhe.se cars always lo turn led, l.iis expensive and lomperamciilal machinery has carried him from Ihe quiet streets of Out., lo Gasoline Alley and The Speedway for Ihc Mtmorial Day Jim Dilamarler is chief me-chanic for Al Unser, defending champion of Hie Indianapolis 500 and the man trying lor ai unprecedented tliird consecutive victory. He aiwl his wife, Sally, and their iG-inor.th-old daughter, Jamie Lynn, live here during the summer and spend llieir winters m California But he's slill a Canadian cili-zen and retains his Ontario driver's licence: His widowed mother still lives in Welland. His father died Iwo years ago in a car crash. As a child, Dilamarler was interested in everything mechanical and tinkered wilh any-Ihinp that needed fixing He de. velopcd an early love for cars, but unlike most youngsters, il was the suspension rather than the engine lhat intrigued him. high schonl and a succession of jobs lhat didn't interest him, Dilamarter moved lo California 10 years ago. lie and a friend built a car and entered it in California Racing Association sprinls. ENMOY LEARNING "We gol it going prctly good, learning something new every time we went he says today. "Thai's what I enjoy most about racing. It doesn't stand still. Its always changing end chief m Laic hi 19G4, George Bignotti, one nf the most respected mechanics in Ihe U.S., noticed Di-lamarler's ability and took him lo Indianapolis in 1905 as a cas. mil extra. He joined the team permanently in Dilamartcr's first love is the Indianapolis 500 and Ihc championship cars which run on Iho United Slates Auto Club circuit. At Indianapolis, Dilamarler has worked for John Surlees and Jackie Stewart and has been the mechanic on three Indianapolis-winning cars. In I960, his first year at Incly, Dilamarter helped prepare Ihc American Red Ball Snecial which carried Graham Hill to viclory. In 1970 and 197., he won with Unser in the Johnny Lightning Special of Parnelli Jones. ENTER THREE The Vels-Parnelli Jones racing team, which Dilamarter and Bignotli joined in 1363, have entered three cars in the May 27 spectacular, with Andretli and Joe Leonard in the cockpits of the other two. Dilamarler is chief mechanic for tbc Unser car exclusively. These three revolutionary vehicles, called Parnellis around the track, are the brain-child of Brilisb aerospace designer Maurice Phillippc and his associate John Baldwin. Both recently worked for Colin Chapman of the Lotus team and had much to do with the design ol Ihe Lotus 72. The Parnelli is a complex machine. One of its main features are the wings designed to sit on either side of the chassis almost in line with the driver's head. They resemble aircraft wings and were designed to house the oil cooling system and increase the downthrust which holds the machine tight to the track. The wings work like airplane train NATAL (HNS) The second hunlcr training course for Sparwcod gol under way recently wilh 23 participating students.
