For E' reason the northern peoples have always considered them- selves intellectually superior to those in the south, he said, cit- ing outstanding examples. Chairman Mao is a northern- er, so is Liu-Shao-chi, and Gen- eral Chiang Kai Shek. The out- standing exception lo the rule is Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. the leader of the movement which over- threw the Manchu dynasty and freed China forever from the Imperial yoke. The great proportion of the Chinese people have tended to settle in areas near the coast and in the river basins. This has meant they have suffered from flood and famine ever has. The sometimes all rain comes at floods everything for hundreds of miles around. This means not only mined crops, but also in a few weeks, drought too. lmry Millions of Chinese have died ;omc of famine because of these nat- ural disasters. Now the Chinese people uni- ted at last, ere damming the rivers, building; huge irrigation ditches and bridges. In the re- mote areas where many of the Chinese minorities live, hidden mountains are being levelled enough land of her own for all and terraced all by hand la- bor. It has been difficult to urge the people to leave their vil- lages, but economic and politi- cal incentives, and enormous propaganda efforts have had their effect.

STUBBS THE DRUG ABUSER? A TRUE LOSER! Has it occurred to you that (lie misuse the abuse of The commission stipulated, however, that the application be posted for residents in the area lo voice their opinion on the location of the centre. The Kradle Koop. as the fa- cility is called, will be allow- ed to accommodate only chil- dren up to age two. Mrs. Staundinger, who oper- ates a Kradle Koop at. 502 5th Ave. S.. said the new day care centre will feature a home set- ting rather than "being like an institution." To accomplish this, a duplex will be modified with a resi- dence established on one side j and access provided to the day care centre on the other side. I An application from G. Ger- i hart requesting permission to establish' a used car lot at 430 Stafford Drive was turned down by the MPC. The commission ruled there is insufficient space on the of her people. Replying to questions from the audience. Dr. Chuen said he believes China has enough iron ore for her needs hi the imme- diate future. He also slated that o i 1 discoveries in northeast China are encouraging. In concluding his talk, Dr. Chuen told his audience that re- cent oil discoveries near Oki- nawa may give rise to a se- rious international problem. He explained that the U.S. had urged Taiwan to give up claims to the discoveries in order to preserve favorable U.S. Jap- anese relations. Now that these relations have deterioiated in the light of Tai- wan's explusion from the UN, it is possible that the nationalist will renew their original claim. This would be another com- plicating factor in the assump- tion by the People's Republic that Taiwan and all its hold- ings is theirs by right, and would inevitably involve Ja- pan.

JIaric (Smallfacc) Marulc, a former Blood reserve native and current executive director of the MB claims self-government is the only way Indians will achieve equality. Advocating a form of apar- theid, she said Indian reserves should have self-government while remaining within the Ca- nadian Dominion. In order to achieve this, na- tive people must form large unified political power groups. She said natives currently have a tendency to form small groups not representative of all Indians in the areas they origi- nate. Mrs. Marule faulted In- dians with apathy towards their own cause by letting only a few concerned natives cany the j fight for equality. More Indians must join these groups and eventually unite into one large national body in order to have political signifi- cance, she said. Not only is apathy among j Indians a problem, but also the j federal department of Indian' affairs uses disagreement be- tween native groups as a wedge to divide Indian groups. The Indian affairs depart- ment's objective is to divide In- dian groups in order to retain power, she charged. "A generally sympathetic news media" were charged with sensationalizing disagree- ments within Indian groups. The media are led on by the Indian affairs department and j are, as a result, playing into its j hands, she said. j Speaking at the Napi Friend- ship Association's "hot seat'' in Pincher Creek Thursday, Mrs. Marule said most Indians are not aware of the Alberta Hu- man Rights Act. When an Indian's human rights are trodden upon, most natives are not aware that their rights have been abused I I hose who are aware, are afraid lo go lo the- police to lodge This, she said', results from historic oppression by till1 po- lice wero originally used to herd Indians onlo reserves. The singular most helpful j way !o tie! Indians on (he road lo ccjualily is to change Ihe eurridiltim and subject content of Indian schools. The current school .system is inadequate even for white so- ciety and is wholly inadequate for Indians, she said. More emphasis must be given lo subjects relevant to Indians en reserve schools. She charged the department of Indian affairs with abusing some of the money allotted to them for Indian development. Too much money is being spent In develop schools v.hich Indians attend off the reserve instead ol and rc- vamping reserve schools and Hie system they use. Oilier money which should bo us''d for economic de- velopment is used by the de- partment to keep Indians on tl'o dependency level they are currently at. The Indian affairs depart- ment to keep tho Indian on [lie welfare role instead of his becoming an economic and political entity, she said. If the money used to pay wel- fare to Indians were directed a1, purposeful Indian economic development she predicted that within five years Indians on welfare would he a thing of the past. LCC talks salaries School boards in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat arc not in- terested in rcojwning contract negotiations with the approxi- mately 750 teachers in the two cities, Jolm Boras, chief school board negotiator said Friday. "We have boon af Ihe bar- gaining table for more than a year and don't think we could accomplish anything by starting negotiations all over again." said Mr. Boras, who is also chairman of the Loth- bridge separate school board. Mr. Boras said the school boards accepted the concilia- tion board "even though Ihere were some things in the award that we didn't like." "We didn't approve of the salary award or the inclusion of a consultation clause, but we accepted it anyway.'' Mr. Boras said the boards do not feel a consultation clause was neccssarv. "We have consulted in the past and would continue to do so we think consultation with i teachers is vital. But we do not like lo be ordered to consult." i Mr. Boras said the ATA wants to reopen many areas of discussion that the boards fee! do not need to be discussed any further. would mean we would j be starting ail over again after a year of negotiating. ''If we negotiated again we would just be going over old territory. We accepted several things that were not to our lik- ing in the conciliation award but how far can we j Mr. Boras said he hoped teachers will do some thinking about what lias taken place so far and will not go on strike. I Thursday the teachers appli- ed for a government supervis- cd strike vote, and could be off their jobs early in December. Senior administrators and aca- demic staff at the Lethbridge Community College met today to lay the ground work for up- coming contract negotiations. The main item discussed was i the college's establishment of a principle for salary increases. Under the principle, each teaching job is worth a certain amount of money, and experi- ence and training have no hear- ing on salaries. That is, a teacher with a B.A. degree would receive the same salary as a teacher with a master's degree if they were doing the same job. Negotiations on new one- year contracts for the approxi- mately 60 instructors at LCC are expected to begin sooon. The previous contracts ex- pired Aug. 31.
