Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thunday, October 3, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Camping in Indian activists and children go about rally-living in Ottawa in an old stone mill. Indians set up commune OTTAWA (CP) the old stone mill occupied by a steadily-growing number of militant Indians on an island just west of Parliament Hill re- sembles a chaotic day-care centre. Inhabitants queue for food beside two electric stoves under a cardboard sign saying: "Keep your own spoon. Bring dirty dis- hes back." Tiny children play happi- ly in the clutter of discard- ed newspapers and other rubble which accumulates when a lot of people live together. When they are hungry or upset, the chil- dren seek solace from any one of a number of the young adults around them Everyone of the es- timated 400 persons now living in the 100-year-old federal building is as- signed a job. Some work in what a cardboard sign calls the "security and infor- mation" section just inside the entrance at the top of wooden stairs leading to the second floor. Others cook, work in the treasury department, look after press relations or help care for the 20 or so children. There is plenty of food. A local food chain merchant Bertram Loeb, donated a whole truckload to supple- ment the baloney-sandwich diet on which the group had been living since it moved in last Sunday. Now there are hundreds of loaves of bread, gallons of milk, crates of apples, oranges and vegetables, boxes of crackers and jars of peanut butter. Mr Loeb, chairman of the M. Loeb Ltd., food dis- tributing company, said the donation had nothing to do with "the merits of the Indian cause." It was made following a request be- cause his company learned the Indians did not have adequate supplies. Still, the camp on the island in the Ottawa River is not without problems. Ken Dennis of British Columbia, a leader of the native caravan which came from the West Coast, said Wednesday many of the oc- cupants are suffering from headaches brought on by RCMP clubbings during Monday's violent clash in front of Parliament. One Indian male, who neither Mr. Dennis nor hospital authorities would identify, was taken to hospital Tuesday night after he collapsed in the mill, spitting blood. As well, some inhabitants are worried about sanitation. There are bathrooms but no showers, and leaders expect hundreds of other Indian supporters from Canada and the United States to join them. Cars outside the mill bear licence plates from many parts of the Wednesday, from New York. Connec- ticut, Quebec and New Brunswick. Still, the three-storey mill is a better home than that from which many of the natives have come, one of the inhabitants said. Fluoride wins battle but war goes on By CHARLES FOLEY London Observer LOS ANGELES After 12 years of stormy controversy, Los Angeles has finally decid- ed to fluoridate its water supply. In doing so, the city fathers have brought back to the boil an argument that has been simmering across North America for two decades and more. When the council took its 10 to five vote passing the measure, two women op- ponents of fluoridation were dragged, shouting and screaming, from the chamber. It was the angriest debate in years. The vast body of medico dental opinion is in favor of mandatory fluoridation. But to judge by the several oc- casions when the question went to a popular vote, there are millions of North Americans who consider the procedure highly suspect, the U.S. Public Health Service recommends it, the National Research Council classifies it as a "dietary the American Dental Association sings its praises. So why the resistance? Why did it take Los Angeles City Council 12 acrimonious years and several debates to raise the necessary votes for approval? Paranoia, says the fluoridators. "Fearmongers frightened many of my con- stituents into believing that I wanted to poison reports councilman Joe Wachs, who voted "pro" after a long study of the issue. Fluoridation opponents deny not only that the stuff is effec- tive against dental decay, they blame if for a host of ills ranging from indigestion to mongoloidism and cancer. One thing fluoride un- questionably does, and that brings the politically far Left in line with the far Right. The Ku Klux Klan and the John Birch Society both denounce fluoridation as a Communist plot to undermine America's health, while on the radical Left (where the vegetarians, organic food faddists and commune dwellers are) it is seen as another machination of what might be called the medico industrial complex.
