There was a silver collection and all the proceeds go to the Dorothy Gooder School in Leth- >ridge, which will benefit to ihe amount of Winners were Wayne Shory, Jake Braun, and last year's women's champion driver, Pat Kellington of Fort Macleod. Next race will be Sunday, June 7, at 2 p.m. Economic development and hu- man resources will be studied. Another purpose is finding out what is wrong with the edu- cational system that at the f-f- sent time sees only six per cent of native people completing high school. An incentive must be found so a greater percent- age will acquire further educa- tion. The association also wants to see a two-way integration take place, not the one-way that is now taking place but non-In- dian coming to meet Indians half-way, not the Indians al- ways coming to the white man's ways. "Why do the native people wish to stay on the reserves? Why don't they go to the field of learning so they may return to compete and contribute to Hie local economy or go on to other positions in other urban Mr. Cardinal replied if there was some economic develop- ment on the reserves, natives would be encouraged to go on to higher learning in preparation for jobs in this development. Mr.. Cardinal said The Unust Society was written largely for the white people. The native people don't have to be told the facts, they know them. It was written to give the Can- adian public an- understanding of the many factors contribut- ing to Indian problems. The poor cousins of Canadian society, Mr. Cardinal said, want to deal as equals financially, culturally and educationally. They want to work out a system of development of their own. If they are left alone to find their own direction then they can unite with non-Indian. Mr. Cardinal was asked why the Indians were presenting the government with a red paper in answer to the white paper. He went through the white paper point-by-point, explain- ing his ideas. People were in attendance from .Edmonton, Cards-ton, Leth- bridge, and eastern Canada. Mil.

(HNS) Dis- trict of Sparwood council at its last regular meeting decid- ed to accept the offer cf 080 from the Regional District of East Koolenay for the prop- erties owned by the District of Sparwocd in the area under urban renewal. The offer includes Ihe district office at the fire hall at and the waterworks system at There is no consideration in the offer for parks, streets, and sidewalks but consideration was offered for the move of park equipment to a new site and for the movement and re- installaticn of street lighting. The offer was made clear that the District of Sparwood would have the responsiblity of operating the water system, un- til such time as they choose to close it.

Ltd. of Fer- nie presented his firm's pro- posal for burning of slash from land clearing and asked for the necessary permission. His proposal is to clear land for the new Dawson Develop- ments Limited housing project and to move the slash to a number of isolated sites for burning. To minimize the hazard of fire spread and objectional smoke, the fires will be relative- ly small and will burn from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Fire patrollcrs, fully-equipped with water and pumps, will pat- rol the fires on a 24-hour a day basis. Mr. Hollinger estimated ths burning process would take approximately two weeks.
