(AP) A Kttl than 30 years ago the J Apache Indians were riuttered by disease and death IHbel population dropped to hH then 400. Today, the nearly triba members are considered aroon the richest people in the wort in per capita value, largely be- cause 'Of oil and gas discoveries on the reserve. But motion picture producer Ronnie Lubin of Los Angeles didn't know about the riches when Jicarilla tribal accountan J. Gabriel Abeyta telephoned him about spewing some triba money on a movie. "We've never heard of Abeyta recalled Lubin saying "We'don't know anything abou you, Abeyta said ha re- plied. TlM tribe's presi dent, Charlie Vigil, had heard co television that entertainer Johnny Cash would make movie in Spain with Kirk Doug- las. Itoe Indians, whose reserve crouches beneath the Colorado border in northern New Mexico telephoned Lubin, who agreed to talk with tribal officials in Los Angeles. Two days later the lO-member tribal council approved the ven- ture. TlM movie, A Gunfight, was ffaished with Bullfight and gun- fight scenes on location at Ocjna, Spain, a small village RARE White Is beauti- ful, thinks this albino koaU found titling by itself In the middle of a road near Too- wwmha, Australia. The mil- ail It considered extremely about 50 mites from Madrid. Other portions of the film were made on location near Santa Fe, about 125 miles southwest of Dulce. In negotiations with the Cali- fornians, the tribe set a mil- lion ceiling for its investment, the borrowed from a New Mexico bank to avert dip- ping into cash assets of about million. The first million in pro- ceeds goes to the Indians. After that, they are to receive 25 per cent of all net profits. Paramount will handle U.S. and Canadian distribution and sales with the tribe receiving 60 per cent of the royaltis. 'I don't see how the tribe can lose said Thomas 0. Olson ofAlbuquerque, the tribe's lawyer. "To me, it's a question of how much money they can make." Abeyta said other tribal money is invested in stocks and bonds through an agency invest- ment fund set up with tour com- petitive banks in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The tribe, he said, is buying U.S. treasury bills and putting money into industries on the re- serve which provide jobs for ribal members. LESS DEMANDING "One reason they were inter- ested in doing business with the Abeyta said of the movie >eople, "was because we would te less demanding. "We were willing to learn. We don't know restrictions that exist in the movie business. In few Mexico, they wouldn't be plagued by unions and a high listribution overhead. They would have a freer hand and make more money. "All we wanted was a fair re- urn on our investment." The annual tribal income is a lit more than million, of which aBout 75 per cent comes rom oil- and gas-lease royal- ies. The remainder is gener- ted from timber, investments, tainting and fishing, a cattle sales barn and the newly-estab- lished Jicarilia Apache Tribal Industries. The tribaUy-owiKd industrial irm assembles electronic com- ponents under federal contracts. ,nd in an agreement with En- ergy Conversion Systems of Al- buquerque, it also assembles tainless steel cooking utensils. The tribe distributes a portion rf its wealth three times a year each enrolled member, re- ardloss of age. It generally to- tali fan to ctcfa person. Banff-Calgary traffic jams are deceiving CALGARY (CP) Those weekend traffic jams on the Calgary-Banff highway must be deceiving, for the majority of Calgarians rarely leave the city on weekends. At least, that's the finding of a research study by Alber- ta's youth department which showed that more than half of a selected sample said they took no weekend trips outside the city limits last summer. Another 20 per cent took only one trip and 11 per cent took two. Most acutely affected, by the inability to get out of the city are those earning under a year; almost half never go beyond the city limits. The research division sought out and questioned more than 700 citizens in an attempt to assess the city's recreational interests and needs and to help the parks and recreation department, to plan ahead to meet them. The report concluded that a large portion of the city's pop- ulation would appreciate lei- sure programs within the city on weekends. Low-income persons with little education are the ones who suffer most from the lack of recreational facilities, the report said. Part of the prob- lem is that many are unaware of recreational opportunities open to them. Others mistrust any form of government serv- ice. Surveys still can't snare that elusive creature "the av- erage but this one does give an interesting portrait of a cross-section of urbanites. Neither the beer-drinking young bachelor nor the little old lady who lives all alone was missed. Surveyors se- lected a sample of 723 adult Calgarians, including the young (18 to 35 years old and not in middle-aged (36 to 56) and the old (56 and As well, 878 high school stu- dents were interviewed. Industrious natures were in the majority, with almost 60 per cent of those interviewed saying they find work more satisfying than leisure. The younger generation derives less pleasure from work than from leisure, but their parents and grandparents have more faith in virtues of hard work. About 60_ per cent feel that .about 40 hours a week is a reasonable length of time to spend on the job. Many males said they would prefer to work longer hours for more money, while the feminine counterparts showed less ded- less increase their income. When Calgarians a r e n 't working, what are they doing? Basically, it seems they are joiners. The popular forms of organizations are service, ath- letic and fraternal clubs. The higher the income level, the more likely the person is to participate. And the colder the weather, the more likely the person is going to attend meetings. Church-affiliated groups ac- count for 40 per cent of the time Calgarians spend in for- mal organizations. Young males expressed a preference for active sports, while female, older and less- wealthy persons favored more-passive activities. Beer-drinking was listed as their "most time-consuming activity" by 33 per cent of over the over-50 generation and 20 per cent of the aiider- 26 group. The survey also showed that elderly single women spend more time by themselves For the latest styles in SHOES HANDBAGS FASHION BOOTEES, etc. Visit DOWNTOWN on SIXTH STREET SOUTH Phone 327-3344 DOWNTOWN 606-608 3rd Avenue South Phone 327-5767 Shop end Save en these timely Chrijtmai Gift Sug- en Sale all next week at Hoyfil Lay Away Service!
