HERAIO 7 Native council asks ban on Disney production OTTAWA (CP) The Native Council of Canada has asked (he Canadian Radio-Television Commission to cancel the sec- ond of a two-part Walt Disney show called Savage Sam because of (lie "savage and ignorant" role il gives In- dians. In n letter to commission chairman Pierre Jimeau, the council's president, A. li. (To- ney) lielcourt says the first part of the show, about two hoys and a girl captured by In- dians in American frontier days, "not only disgusted my wife and I hut upset my four- and-six-year-old daughters who are Metis as I am." The second part of the show is lo be aired hy the CBC this Sunday. Last Sunday's episode ended with Savage Sam, a dog, in bel- lowing pursuit of the Indians, Tax credit scheme promised Britons LONDON (AP) The British government called today for the adoption of a negative in- come las plan that would in- crease state benefits to millions of old-age pensioners and other low-income families. The program, called an in- come tax credit scheme, would also simplify state welfare ben- efits, reduce bureaucratic red tape and eliminate embar- rassing means tests, the gov- ernment said in a paper for publir discussion. The government said the plan would take five years to estab- lish. But the paper said Prime Minister Heath's government hopes to introduce the legisla- tion before the nexl general eleclion, which must come by 1975. The plan comes partly from the recognition that despite generous benefits since 1M5 the welfare state has failed to lift the poor up out of poverty. RAISE COSTS SIDNEY One problem, has been the poverty trap. A man earning (about J41) a week, pays nc income tax and gets various welfare benefits, If he makes he must pay ncome tax and loses some ol welfare benefits. He ends up poorer by getting a raise. Under the new plan, welfare benefits would be paid auto- matically as part of the income ax system. A poverty line is drawn, say a year. Anyone making more than lhat pays lax. Any- one making less than that re- ceives the difference in state help up to the whole Anyone below Ihe poverty line would be allowed to keep both the benefit he received earlier and a portion of the added earnings up to a cut off level well beyond the poverty line. who had captured two brothers and the sweetheart of the older one. A band of heavily-armed white men were following Sav- age Sam, also after the In- dians. Mr. Bclcourl says in Ills let- ter that native people "have looked forward to the day when films and books teaching prej- udice to children ami adults vould end." "We hope that you and Uiej >nadian Broadcasting Corpo-i will follow the lead of .he government of Ontario vhich recently announced the withdrawal of several school .ext books prejudicial lo the In- dian race. Part I of the film Savage Sam portrays the Indian race the traditional stereotyped Disney role as savage and igno- rant. "Disgusting films of this na- ture must no longer be allowed to be aired, particularly on a television network Canadians are supposed to call theirs."
