Phong 328-8161 "The Pioneer and Leading Retail Shop in lethbrldge" FINEST QUAIITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS Indians criticized for ending boycott By MYHON JOHNSON Special lo the Herald BONNYVILLE-Lndian lead- ers at the Kehewin Indian re- serve in northeastern Alberta have already been accused of "chickening out" for ending a school boycott and sending their children back to integrat- ed classrooms. The. children from the re- serve returned to school in Bonnyville Nov. 18, ending a two month long strike orga- nized by the Indian Association of Alberts, after Chief Gordon Youngchief and two other rep- resentatives met in secret with federal Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien in Winnipeg Nov. 12 to discuss Indian grievances. Teresa Gadwa, chairman of the Kehewin school committee, one of the representatives at the meeting, said she and Chief Youngchief were both satisfied with the compromise settle- ment reached, although certain people outside the reserve were unhappy that tire Kehewin Indians ended the boycott. "Some people say we chick- ened Mrs. Gadwa said. "That's not true. We got what we wanted. We're not gre-.dy." The striking Indians from a number of reserves had been demanding an end to integrat- ed education and a return to reserve schooling. According to Mrs. Gadwa, Mr. Chretien promised the Ke- hewin Indians a primary school including a kindergarten and Grades 1 through 3, to be ready for use by September 1972. She said she regarded this as a satisfactory compromise. "We're not against integra- tion she said. "It was mainly the smaller kids having to wait for the bus in tile cold that we were concern- ed about. Anyway, this reserve is too small for a high school." There are only about 45 fam- ilies living on the reserve, 18 miles from Bonnyville. When Mr. Chretien agreed to provide the primary school and take steps to improve living conditions on the reserve, Chief CUFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG. PHONE 327-2822 Youngcbief accepted the terms, even though Indian leaders from neighboring reserves re- fused to end the boycott. Among the conditions agreed to by Mr. Chretien were im- proved roads and new furnaces for some of the homes on the reserve, Mrs. Gadwa said. Six: said he also promised to inves- tigate the feasibility of install- ing a natural gas line on the reserve. Mrs. Gadwa denied the Kehe- win Indians had been pressured by the Indian Association of Al- berta into joining the strike in September. She said the deci- sion was taken independently, and the lack of any schools and general living conditions on the reserve were the reasons Kehe- win joined the strike. Teachers vote today The approximately 900 teach- ers in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat vote today on whether to take strike action to back their contract demands with school boards in the two cities. A senior union official said he expects teachers will vote about SO per cent in favor of a strike. The results of (he voting will be made known at a press con- ference in Lcthbridge Tuesday. An affirmative vote by teach- ers could close the 50 schools in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat before the end of this week. is d den IDS STAKE DEDICATION The new LDS stoke centre edicated as Dr. Asael E.

Half-way house needs money By RUDY IIAUGENEDER Staff Writer A lack of community sup- port and money are the bar- riers blocking the development if a half-way house for women in Lethbridge. Although a building which can be used as a rehabilitation centre has been found nothing 'urther can be done without support. Half-way house promoters say they will conduct an inten- ve campaign to recruit more supporters and financial assi, tors lo cluljs, organizations and the three levels of government requesting moral and financial support. The department of Indian al- fairs and provincial welfare officials have endorsed the program and will provide some operational cost-sharing when the centre is completed. The City of has also given the project a go- ahead. The site chosen for Uw half- way house is near the city's and has been le Lethbridgo zoning department. To te known as the Rosalta i J-, :n- in House, the project is aimed at1 lnulB in providing rehabilitation and counselling for women with se- vere personal problems. An estimated 10 to 15 women will occupy the proposed struc- ture for varying lengths of time, depending on how long it takes to get them on the path to a normal life. The women to use the pro- posed facility will be careful- ly screened to make sure they are sincere in their desire to i ,g in the im- mediate area also seem in fa- vor of the rehabilitation cen- tre, a committee spokesman says. Three out spoken committee membcrs: Rose Yellow Feet, Meis Wagner and Mrs. J. D. Sturrock are available to speak at private and public functions to outline "the ur- gency of setting up a women's half-way house." H o w e v e r, before Rosalta House can become a reality will! more participation is re- be necessary because the I womijn will live at the voluntarily, and are entitled to leave whenever they want. After a woman has been suc- cessfully rehabilitated at the centre, counsellors will pro- vide additional advice when- i ever it is wanted. The estimated first year cost of the centre is about This includes the cost of reno- vating a rented building and the furniture and supplies re- quired to get started. "There is a desperate need for a women's half-way house in southern say Ro- salta House Committee mem- bers. The nearest similar facility is in Calgary, and it is over- flowing with urban women wanting to straighten out their lives. The committee has sent let- [uired.
