"My cousin was the last per- son to be hanged in the North- west the stocky Metis said Thursday in an inter- view. "That was in 1952 and lie was a good man who did a foolish thing. He could have served his time and be free now to make a contribution to society.'' The man was hanged for kill- ing bis wife. Beauty Salon 503 7th St. S. 328-0197 The vote against hanging will be one of the few good moments Mr. Firth has enjoyed since being elected to Parliament last October. One of the good moments came in January after Mr. Firth made his first Commons speech. He described the condi- tions of the native people in the North and what he believed go- verment must do. "A few days later Mr. Die- fenbaker stopped me and said it was one of the best first speeches he had ever recalled Mr. Firth. He was the first native person elected to Parliament from the Northwest Territories and be- came a popular person to be in- terviewed by members of the Press Gallery.

One of his first parliamentary acts was to place a motion on the order paper calling for a Commons committee to in- vestigate aboriginal rights. The government has taken the motion on its own after con- sultation but Mr. Firth feels the committee on Indian affairs hasn't the power he wanted it to have to study the question. Despite his low profile, he still gets about half a dozen re- quests weekly to speak to groups across Canada. He has rejected almost all of them.

Tie additional money will bring the soldiers' pay to the level of external affairs officials on the International Commis- sion of Control and Supervision, he told George Hees (PC- Prince Edward Hastings) in the Commons. The majority of Canadian ob- servers in Vietnam are soldiers and there have been complaints that they receive less pay than external personnel for the same work. The a month is the ti ?180 fomgn service allowance the servicemen re- ceive on top of their regular pay. Mr. Richardson said the tax- free extra money will be retro- active to Jan. 29 for men who have been in Vietnam since the start of the observer operation.

The doctor said it has been "pretty well proven" in some accidents that the pilot. of aircraft have been incap- acitated by lannate. A flight safety crisis point has been reached, he said, and the ministry of transport is looking at the problem from a long term standpoint to effect greater corlrol over the opera- tors of crop dusting aircraft. The biggest problem exists, he said, with private operators who have not been properly schooled in low flying techni- ques and do not know the ef- fects of the chemicals being used in spraying. Press council upholds protest CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Press Council has upheld a complaint by Mayor Rod Sykes about theatre advertising standards in The Herald. The council said the paper had failed to enforce its own standards and allowed objec- tionable advertisements to be published. The mayor complained about movie ads which contained lines such as "the great Am- erican obsession gets laid to "four times that "gusss what we learned in school and "raw naked. realism." The council said the ads were 'lustful, erotic and an unwhole- some exploitation of sex." The council noted that a let- er to the editor complaining about the ads appeared in the same edition as the objection- able advertising. The editor appended a state- ment to ths letter outlining its advertising standards and soe- cifying it rejected advertise- ments which "stimulate an un- natural or unwholesome atti- ude or interest in sex, vio- ence. The council report said The lerald advertising direc- or wrote local theatre man- agers and stated categorically that offensive advertisements would not be published. 'In these circumstances it is manifest that the newspaper was derelict in its duty to pro- tect its own standards and pre- vent the two objectionable ad- vertisements being published." The press council was form- ed by five Alberta newspapers Herald, Medicine Hat News, Red Deer Advocate, Ed- monton Journal and Grande Prairie Herald-Tribune to re- view complaints against the papers. The Herald published the council findings, as all mem- bers are obliged to do when they are involved. RECEIVE AID JACKSON, Miss.
