Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta f 2 THE tETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, November 4 ,1971 Chretien visit Indians' goal SYDNEY. N s. it'I'i A res- oluiior. calling for .Northern A.'- j fairs Minister .lean Chretii'ii to visit three northern Alberta re- i serves where Indians are boy- cutting classes and protesting livuig conditions unani- mously pased by more than delegates the eighth annual Indian conference on education here Wednesday. The resolution, proposed by Card Martin, a 21-year-old Metis and president of the. United Indian Yoi'.th of Alberta, calls for the Commons commit- tee on Indian and Eskimo edu- cation to demand that Mr. Clire- j lien give top priority to visiting reserves at Cold Lake, Kehcwin j and Saddle Lake. Ian Watson, Commons com- mittee chairman, told the con-1 ference his committee will rec- i ommend that schools include! more Indian history and details about Indian contribution to Canadian life. The recommendation would apply to schools operated by the federal government on reserves and in provincial school systems where Indians are enrolled. 0 t h e r recommendations adopted in June but made pub- lic for the first time here Wednesday include urging Ot- tawa to continue its policy that programs will not be transferred to the provinces without approval o." the major- ity of parents in eacli commun- ity and that prc-school instruc- tion be established. Pre-schoi courses would be set up over a five-year period. Mr. Watson, Liberal JIP for Laprairie, said the basic reason for tlie failure of previous edu- cational programs for Indians was the lar-k of federal training programs for teachers of Indian children. He also said there has been to much emphasis on "retaining even-one for jobs in large cities and 'not specifically for jobs in areas where they live." CALGARY (CT> It's the men who need liberating, es- pecially on the farm. That's the opinion of four wo- men attending the United Grain Growers convention with their husbands. They dissected today's female cry for liberation and agreed they don't it. Mrs. Harvey Hamilton of Vis- ta, Man., said Wednesday farm work is still a 50-50 proposition. "The man has chores and the woman has She has helped her husband during harvest season when a hired hand wasn't available and he's helned her many times in the kitchen. Mrs. Victor Mareotte of Kin- istino. is a firm believer that men need some time to themselves, adding it's a good thing also for women to take a shopping trip once in awhile without their husbands.

The agreement was signed by MR, VIli'i'UE irtue: care is EDMONTON" (CP The The Shape Of Things To Come SOCIETY BRAND. quality of patient care in Al- berta's mental hospitals is much inferior to the care pro- vided in general hospitals. Charles Virtue, president of the Alberta Hospital Association, said Wednesday. The inferior care results be- cause of the fact that mental hospitals in the province are fr.r removed from the main- stream of hospitals, he said in an interview. "The people that run mental hospitals are almost isolated from the people that run other hospitals. There is little ex- change of ideas or problem- solving methods." Mr. Virtue, from. Lethbridge, was speaking following his ad- dress to the annual convention of the association. It was a "tragedy" that men- tal hospitals are not represent- ed in the association, he told delegates. The association had tried to gain representation from men- tal hospitals but (lie provincial o v e r n m e n t had decided it. Mr. Virtue said in an inter- view- thai too often hospitals in- dulge in power struggles with eadi other. I "But hospitals have to rcal- ize that they are all part of a I total community resource.

LINKS EXCELLENT Communications with the U.S. government are excellent, Mr. Sharp said. Various boards and commit- tees, such as the International Joint Commission, were active. T h e commission administers border waterway agreements. Since the announcement last Aug. 15 of the U.S. import sur- charge, communications had been free, forthright and more numerous than ever in living memory, Mr. Sharp said. T. C.

Mr. Douglas said there is a campaign afoot by right-wing elements to accuse anyone who disagrees with the U.S. of "ccsying up to" the Comnrun- ists.

The MP for Hillsborough, Conservative foreign affairs critic, led off debate on his par ty's motion condemning the Lib- erals both "for failing to employ and improve" good Canada- United Stales relations and for lacking policies to strengthen Canada's economic independ- ence. The two-day special debate, for which the Opposition party selected the topic, comes to an end with a vole tonight.

Watchdog loses job Transfusions i possibility for H Than I I UNITED NATIONS (Renter) i Secretary-General U Thant remained in hospital today under intensive treatment, for a hemorrhaging peptic ulcer that may keep him out of action until he retires at the end of the year. Officials said he might have i to receive blood transfusions but none had been given yet. A medical bulletin said surgery was not anticipated. Thant, 62, had the same prob- lem in 1964 and spent about two EDMONTON' (CD-Trie 1.000 federal employees who control Canada's air traffic want to see a substantial speed-up in pro- cedures governing contract negotiations. Dick Campbell of Ottawa, Ca- nadian Air Traffic Control As- sociation national president, said Wednesday the controllers have been without a contract since Sept. 30 and talks have been pending the naming of a conciliation board chairman. He said the organization be- lieves contract talks should start at least six months before the expiration of an existing contract but present legislation does not allow negotiations to start until 60 days before a contract expires. Mr. Campbell was in Ihe city for a meeting of the associa- tion's national council. Tire meetings, all closed, started Wednesday and end Saturday. The discussions include safety measures, staffing, the control He said both the Toronto and Montreal airports still have heavy traffic problems and con- trollers in those centres set rec- ords for hours of overtime worked last summer. As the number of controllers increases, however, the size and numbers of aircraft also grow, Mr. Campbell said. Socreds learn lesson WASHINGTON (AP) The agriculture department is consi- dering a plan that would enable Swift and Co. to market turkeys tainted with DDT-like chemical if the meat can be made to measure up to federal standards. The plan, which could save Swift. by government estimates, consists of cooking the chemicals out of the tur- keys, then clearing them for use in frozen diners, soups and pot pies. Officials emphasized in in- terviews that the meat would have to be proven safe. If adopted, the plan would be the closing chapter in what re- mains the most mysterious inci- dent yet involving contamina- tion of food by a family of in- dustrial chemicals called poly- chlorinated biphynels, or PCBs. The chemicals have been blamed for skin ailments in hu- mans and liver disease and birth defects in test animals. The contaminated turkeys were discovered last August at the Swift and Co. plant in De- troit Lakes, Min. Officials still have not disclosed the source of the contamination. In Ottawa, a spokesman for the federal food directorate said any food products manufac- turcdcd from the contaminated turkey meat would be inspected before being cleared for sale in Canada.

"brought to the atten- ion" of President N'lxon. Western Union, which had been receiving the telegram here for the last four days, said it believes it is the longest message it has handled in its history anywhere in the United Slates'. Berton, well-known author, and Templcton, were admitted by guards to the old Executive Office Building next to the White House and spent some 15 minutes with John Wesley Dean II, counsel to Ihe president. They told reporters later they were given a "courteous but non-committal" reception. Dean told them countless petitions are se.nt to the president, that any- one has the right Io do so, and that theirs would be brought to Mxon's attention.
