(AP) A fittta i More than 30 years ago the Ji- Ottilla Apache Indians were riuttered by disease and death, IMbtl population dropped to ImtiwoWO. Today, the nearly tribal ambers are considered among the richest people in the world in per capita value, largely be- cause of oil and gas discoveries on the reserve, But motion picture producer Bowie Labin of Los Angeles didn't know about the riches when Jiearills tribal accountant J. Gabriel Abeyta telephoned Mm about spewing some tribal mosey on a movie, "We've never heard of Aheyta recalled Lubm saying. "We don't know anything about you, Abeyta said ha re- plied. Tin tribe's presi- dnt, Charlie Vigil, had heard CD television that entertainer Johnny Cash would make a movie in Spain Kirk Doug- las. The 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 10-member tribal council approved the ven- ture. UN movie, A (Sunlight, was finished with Wlfight and gun- tight scenes on location at Spain, small village RARE White to besnti- fol. thinks this found lilting by Itself In the mUffle of t roai Mar wwmtia, Australia. The U considered cilremely about 50 unites from Madrid. Other portions of the film were made on location near Santa Fe, about 125 miles southwest of Duloe. In negotiations with, the Call- tormaos, the tribe set a mil- lion coiling for its investment, the nuoey borrowed from 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 X per cent of all net profits. Paramount will handle U.S. and Canadian distribution ant sales with the tribe receiving SB per cent of the royaltis. I don't see how the tribe can lose said Thomas 0 Olson ofAIbuquerque, the tribe's lawyer. "To me, it's a question of how much money they can make." Abeyta said other triba money is invested in stocks aw bonds through an agency invest raent fund set up com petitive banks in Santa Fe aa Albuquerque. The tribe, he said, is buying treasury bills ami puttini money into industries on the re- serve which provide jobs for tribal members. LESS DEMANDING 'Cue reason they were inter- ested in doing business with the Abeyta said of the raovti people, "was because we woulc be less demanding. "We were willing to learn. We don't know restrictions tha exist in the movie business. In New Mexico, they wouldn't b plagued by unions and a hig distribution overhead. They would have freer hand and make more money. "Ail we wanted was a fair re- tarn on our investment." The annual tribal income is a bit moie than ?2 million, which aBout 75 per cent come, from oil- and gas-lease royal ties. The remainder is gener ated from timber, investments hunting and fishing, a cattle sales barn and the newly-estab- lished Jicarilia Apache Triba Industries. The totally-owned iixtoslria firm assembles electronic com ponents under federal contracts And in an agreement with En ergy Conversion Systems of Al buquerque, it also assembles stainless steel cooking utensils, The tribe distributes a portion of its wealth three times a to each enrolled member, re- gardless of age.

Banff-Calgary traffic jams are deceiving CALGARY (CP) Those i weekend traffic jams on the Calgary-Banff highway must je deceiving, for the majority of Calgarions rarely leave the city on weekends. At least, that's the finding of a research study by Alber- t's youth department which showed that more than half of a selected sample said they :ook no weekend trips outside lie city limits last summer. Another 20 per cent took only one trip and 11 per cent took ,wo. Most acutely affected by the inability to get out of the city are those earning under a year; almost half never go oeyond 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 ind recreation department to plan ahead to meet them. The report concluded that a large portion o! 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 729 adult Calgarians, i n c d i n g 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 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 Urne-consuming activity" by 33 per cent of over the over-50 generation and 20 per cent o! the ranicr- 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 Chmtmat Gift Sug- gestions en Sola nil next week at Hoyfsl Lay Away Service!
