Adjustments difficult schooling fails' Integrated native non-na- tive schooling has failed in southern Alberta, says Caen Bly, editor of the twice-monthly Blackfoot publication, Kainai News. It has resulted in a more than 50 per cent drop-out rate by Indian teenagers, she told the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs in Lethbridge Thursday. She said nation wide figure would probably be similar. CLIFF BLACK, Certified Dental Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLOC. Lower Level PHONE 327-5822 PHARMACY FACTS FROM 0. C.

Mrs. Bly said Indian students find it difficult to adjust to white society quickly because teachers are no longer capable of teaching "life education." They have became specialists of individual topics. She intimated the problem of adjustment in southern Alberta schools, particularly in Card- ston, was more difficult be- cause of student resentment to- wards the dominant Mormon religion. However, she foresaw a con- tinued trend towards integrat- ed education. job Construction has started on the new warehouse and offices for Oliver Industrial Supply Lid. at 226 36th St. N.

Mrs. Bly added that reserve councils should take a more ac- tive part in upgrading reserve schools. Reserve schools are import- ant because some Indian stu- dents would learn much better in a school of then- own. She said both reserve and in- tegrated schools should teach courses in Indian culture "for students of all origins." Indian culture is dying out as quickly as the old Indians who can remember the pre- modern Indian way of life. At the core of the problem is the language change among In- dians. Mrs. Bly said most In- dian students converse in Eng- lish and a diminishing number speak, read or write their na- tive language. The modern Indian has three choices, she said join the so- cial mainstream; decided to re- tain parts of Indian culture; or live on the reserve. PEIGANS RE-ELECT CHIEF Maurice McDougall was re- elected chief of the Peigan re- serve by a narow 19-vote mar- gin during Wednesday's band elections. He defeated John Yellow Horn, last of a line of hered- itary chiefs, who was ousted when democratic elections were introduced on the reserve in I960. Eight incumbent council members were re-elected to the 12-seat council. A total of 44 candidates sought council seats, including two women. Only two candidates sought the job of chief. About two-thirds of the elig- ible Peigan band members attended the polls. No exact fi- gures were available at press time. Re-elected to council were: Julius English, Nelson Small Legs, Tony Strikes With A Gun Senior, Charles B. Grccr. Char- les G. Provost, Paul Smith, Waller Bastien and Andrew Provost. The new council members are: Leonard Little Moustache, Albert Yellow Horn Senior, Hugh Crow Eagle and Percy Smith. City needs more staff Downtown redevelopment plans gathering momentum, problems By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer Redevelopment plans for the area west of 5th St. S. are mov- ing more rapidly than antici- pated and several problems have come up as a result. Tenants and land owners who need to be relocated are panicking. More city staff Is required to help in the relocation. More office space is need- ed to handle new and existing city personnel. About 95 tenants in the down- town redevelopment area have to be relocated and have been misled to believe they must move out now, City Manager Tom Nutting says. Some .have already started to move, Mr. Nutting said, but it isn't necessary right now. The city will "make provisions for relocating these people at the least possible expense to them." Each person in the area will be contacted by the city and will be offered help in making the move, Mr. Nutting said. One of the big problems fac- ing the tenants is the transition to be made from the low rents they now pay to higher rents throughout the city. "It will change their economic situation Mr. Nutting said. That is one reason "it is im- perative that city council ap- proves the construction of both the senior citizen and public housing Mr. Nutting said. A total of 75 se- nior citizen's units, in an apart- ment block, and 30 public hous- ing units have teen proposed. Mr. Nutting said he will press for a downtown site at least the senior citizen's accommo- dation. "We could fill up the entire project with people from the redevelopment he added. The city faces a problem, however, in finding staff to work with the residents. As a solution, Mr. Nutting will recommend to council Mon- day that more people be put on the city payroll, some to work out of his office to handle the increased wo-kload involved with the downtown redevelop- ment and West Lethbridge. The new staff, if approved by council, as well as existing per- sonnel "scattered all will require more office space, in a central location. The city's purchase of the provincial court house, just east of city hall, will do two things: provide the extra office space and move construction date of the new provincial Blood elections to go as planned I University invaded The University of Lethbrit _ regularly welcomes visitors from outside the campus but there is a certain group of new- Preliminary hearing to resume Preliminary hearing of a charge of non-capital murder against a 24-year-old Lethbridge man has been set to resume Nov.

Bob Comstock, physical plant co-ordinator, says its an annual problem. When the chilly weather sets in, the field mice start looking for a warmer place to spend the winter and in West Leth- bridge, there aren't many places to choose from. Hence, the regular invasion of the tl of L. Most of the mice are lodged in the boiler room, where its warm, and in the kitchen area, where there's food. However, they have also been spotted scurrying around, under and over the plalonic couches in the main university concourse and in waslepaper baskets in various parts of the campus.

"nut. a mouse trap seems to work Mr. Comstock said, A Blood band council effort to postpone the Nov. 21 council elections until mid-December to coincide with the annual capital accounts interest payments to band members has be de- feated. The move, described as "pol- itical bribers'" by some of the more than 70 candidates seek- ing the 12 council seats, contra- vened the Indian Act. The 12 council members and chief, all of whom are seeking re-election, indicated the move was necessary to get people to the polls. The interest money would have been distributed at the polling stations. The money, which varies from to per person an- nually, is usually offered just before Christmas. However, during the past few elections, the money has been distributed on election day. In a guarded statement, the Progressive Bloods, newly- formed civic action group, cri- ticized the move as "political It seems the Blood populace must be paid to attend func- tions, including elections, or else the turnout is dismal. The Progressive's are sup- porting 11 nonu'nees for council plus a chief candidate none of whom are incumbents. The criteria for Progressive's support is "stability." Most of their candidates have permanent jobs and "are not going in for what they can get for themselves."

Govt. makes move to help Archmount Herald Legislative Bureau EDMONTON The provin- cial government has appointed an administrator to attempt to straighten out the financial problems of Archmount Mem- orial Gardens Ltd., operator of a Lethbridge cemetery, Attorn- ey-General Merv Leitch said Thursday. Replying in the legislature to a question from Dick Gruen- wald (SC-Lethbridge West) the attorney-general said there is a law now that only religious organizations and municipal councils may establish a cem- etery. However, Archmount, a pri- vate company, ran into finan- cial troubles before the legisla- tion was enacted, he said. The Lethbridge cemetery has been operating without a li- cence since 1963 and was the subject of a public enquiry last summer by Judge L. S. Tur- cotte of Lethbridge. In a report of his enquiry pub- lished Aug. 20 the judge laid part of the blame for current financial difficulties on the berta Securities Commission for taking away the firnl's licence and leaving the company with- out a source of revenue. Worth to visit college, university Dr. Walter Worth, deputj minister of advanced educa tion, will be in Lethbridge nex week to meet officials of the city's two post-secondary edu cation institutions. Dr. Worth will be at the Uni versity of Lethbridge on the morning of Nov. 23 and wil visit the Lethbridge Community College in the afternoon. He wil address the regular meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs during the noon hour. Dr. Bill Beckel, president of the U of L, said the main pur pose of the visit is to make Dr Worth familiar with the pro- grams and resources of the uni versity. He said there are no general items planned for discussion. Dr. Beckel said there may be one definite item for discussion the 30-course degree program which has been proposed by the Alberta Universities Com- mission. The matter will be discussed PUT Featuring "THE MOONGLOWS" 8 TO 12 P.M.

Dr. Beckel said if the matter isn't resolved in the meeting with the commission, it may be discussed while Dr. Worth is at the university. Gordon Colledge, information officer at LCC, also said there is nothing specific on tap for Dr. Worth's first visit to the city as deputy minister of advanced education. He said most of tlie visit will be taken up with bringing Dr. Worth up-to-date on the college operation and facilities. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S. Phone 328-4095 The report said the accounts of Archmount have not been prop- erly approved in recent years, yet the securities commission has ignored the problem. The enquiry was prompted by Canada Trust Company which sought to get its accounts with Archmount in order. Judge Turcotte said a trust fund of must be estab- lished to ensure that the more than graves at the cem- etery are maintained in prop- er condition. Because accounts of the com- pany were incomplete, the judge could not determine that exact financial condition of Archmount. His report noted that there were complaints earlier this 5'ear about the run down condi- tion of the grave yard, but following approval at the en- quiry of for improve- ments, the cemetery has been brought back into better shape. However, he wrote, "Much more needs to be done to bring the cemetery to the condition of beauty which it enjoyed in 1964. Some 700 graves need soil, reseeding, trees need pruning, etc." Judge Turcotte said "The main losers are the several thousand citizens of southern Alberta who paid their money in good faith and have loved ones buried in the cemetery."
