Indians Fail To Fully Use Land By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON Indian farm- ers are not taking full advan- tage of land at Uieir disposal, H. A. (Bud) Olson, federal minister ,of agriculture, told about 180 delegates and ob- servers to the Indian Associa- tion of Alberta development conference. Mr. Olson said there are Indian farmers on acres of land in Canada, but only 565 are full-time farmers. He said Alberta Indians were using acres but were leasing about acres to non-Indians instead of working it themselves. The total land picture open to Indians in Canada, he said, is about two million acres for {aiming and another one mil- lion acres for grazing which is not used at this time. Many Indian farmers are not able to adjust to changes in agricultural technology and they do not have the equip- ment or facilities to change their farming he said. "This change or adjustment Remanded Five Lethbridge youths who appeared in magistrate's court were charged with break, enter and theft, theft of gas, and at- tempting to steal gas. All reserved plea and were remanded. The five were charged with breaking into a house in Leth- bridge, stealing two 45-gallon barrels of gas, attempting to steal gas near Kip'p and theft of a gas pump. CITY TAXPAYERS What portion of industry's sewage bill are you going to pay?

Mr. Olson said the two mam requirements for successful farming today are assets and management. "Good production is only one aspect the good farmer must decide what to produce arid how best to do it. and work he said. "Many Indian farmers lack capital to apply asswis and management and many more need more training. With these factors, many more men could make their living farming." Mr. Olson said the Farm Credit Corporation was set up because there were not enough long-term loans available for many people to make a go of farming, but expressed disap- pointment the program was not being taken advantage of as much as he had expected. "Application rates across Canada are down 50 par he said. "Only 59 reserve farmers, 15 in Alberta, had taken advan- tage of the program in the first four months of its establish- ment. "We hope amendments to the FCC program will help make capital resources for Indians more easily accessible." Mr. Olson told the delegates Canada will sell 700 million bushels of all grains this year, with barley up 300-400 per cent and significant increases in wheat and rapeseed.

Mr. Olson said the lota wheat inventory was down 25ft- 300 million bushels from lasl year and Canada can sell al the barley tfe farmers are will- ing to deliver this year. "For this reason the lift program will not again be followed this year." He told Blood Indian spokes- man Howard Beebee it is diffi- cult to get permits to sell sur- plus grains OB Indian reserves. "We hope to ease restrictions but can't guarantee any specia; permits." Mr. Beebee was referring to some instances when a man who bad farming rights to some land and a permit to seSi grain from thai land died. The grain would Ihen be stored, with surpluses building up. Mr. Olson said another per- son can't hold a permit to sell grain produced on a piece of land when it was owned by a previous permit holder. By STAN FKUET Herald Staff Writer Criminals are difficult people lo rehabilitate, the Crime, Cor- rections and You conference was told Friday night. Justin Ciale, with Ihe depart- ment of the solicitor general in Ottawa, told the conference at the University of Lethbridge, "Services that aren't doing any >ood should be stopped. "We should be convinced the services are effective. We ace making a sincere effort to work towards a program. Shaking hands is nothing compared to rehabilitating a person. "Our present batting average in correction is 0.333. one-third go straight, one third go back to jail and one-third keep going back." Mr. Ciale's comments were in respond to a questin wheth- er he thought the solicitor-gen- eral's department is honestly involved with the social role. He was one of the resource personnel questioned at the opening session of confer- ence, sponsored by the John Howard Society. The confer- ence continues today and Sun- day. Ken Crockett, chairman of the advisory committee on cor- rection for Alberta, said pro- gress in correction is possible only if the minister of the Crown is willing. "There are two basic princi- ples and Mr. Crockett said. "There is no pro- gress unless enthusiasm is administered by the leaders in charge of programs. The at- torney general needs to dem- onstrate interest. Secondly, no government can go forth or faster than enlightened public will allow or accept. Frank Miller, president of the Canadian Corrections Associa- tion in Ottawa, was asked, if the association in Canada is performing an) useful task. The Canadian corrections as- sociation has developed com- munication, a prerequisite to the solution of problems in cor- rection, he said. "To an extent its members are doing their part to justify their Mr. Miller said. "Accomplishments are being made by the association which were not possible before. Bi-annual congresses are held where members learn from each other. "A journal is published which is getting better each year and have a working committee across the country which com- municates with the govern- ment. Committees are being formed to deal with the design and programs of maximum se- curity prisons in Alderman Vaughn Hembroff, representing the City of Lelh- bridge, was asked, why on two occasions the John Howard So- ciety had been refused a grant. "Tb.s provincial government indicated it would not grant the John H o w a r d money because Society it was not worthy of it." Aid. Hembroff siu'd. "Council felt if the gov- ernment denied it money why should we give it any. Volun- teer societies tend lo uss the government as a crutch. The John Howard Society must prove worthiness of existence." U of L president Dr. Sam Smith, asked if the university is generally concerned about existing problems, replied, "I (latest a simple approach to (he problem. need tough wrestling with a tough problem. The conference we are all at- tending will determine how we will gel involved. The university has a role lo maintain Ihe existing order."

Department Of Industry Verge Of Coming Apart An Alberta Progressive Con- servative Association meeting was told today Ibat no other important of provincial responsibiity has received so liltle attention and planning as rural industrialization. Don Getty, Conservative MLA for Strathcona West, told the planning session that the provincial department of indus- try and tourism has been con- sistently mismanaged "to the point that it is on the verge of coming apart." Mr. Getty said Alberta must join the battle for secondary in- dustry if residents hope to have the jobs, money and growth in their area. One of the factors that must be faced, hs said, is that there are usually several sites which could be chosen by an industry' Rail Hearing The Canadian Transport Commission public hearing into CP Rail's application to dis- continue southern Alberta pas- senger service is still sched- uled (or the Lethbridge provin- cial courthouse Monday, but the date has not been confirm- ed.

A hearing Oct. 5 on the re- zoning of the site brought out some local criticisn. of the proposal, although that meet- ing was intended to deal only with rezoning, rather than traf- fic problems. Traffic studies done both be- fore and during the closure will be submitted to city council at the Nov. 16 hearing. Prelimi- nary reports, most of them in- dicating few problems would be encountered if the avenue were closed, have already been presented and are available to the public. Art Baity, president of Shop- pers' World Ltd., says a deci- sion on going ahead with dem- olition of the roof of the old Town and store, site of the proposed 12-storey hotel, will be made after the city decides whether to close 4th Ave. A spokesman for Shoppers' World has told city council he could not say what the reaction of the hotel's operating chain might be if the avenue were not closed.
