The Incident occurred Satur- day night when a party of In- dians from the Morley Reserve were at first barred entry to the hotel, causing a threat of a walkout by about 180 dele- gates attending the Alberta As- sociation of Architects' confer- ence. Mr. Senior, attending the conference as an observer, said be will advise the minister be- cause "there is obviously con- cern about what took place." Jack Long, a Calgary archi- tect and conference organizer, said when the Indians arrived at the hotel and asked if they could join delegates, hotel staff said "no." However, after hotel officials met conference organizers they agreed to allow them to parti- cipate as long as they were not providing professional enter- tainment. Mr. Long said they were In- vited, not as entertainers, but to provide a cultural experi- ence for visitors from Canada and the United States. Hotel Manager E. C. Fitt said the hotel did not have a policy of discrimination against Indians. The only concern, lie said, was to prevent breaches of a hotel contract with a Musi- cians' Union. Lazarus Wesley, chief of the Morley Reserve near Calgary, said that while his people often provide entertainment on the hotel grounds during the sum- mer, they are not allowed in. the hotel. But he had no eyi-' dence of a hotel policy forbid- ding Indians from registering as guests.

He said he interpreted from briefs presented at wilderness hearings during the summer that conservationists wished to see all industry shut down in the miles of the green belt along the east slope of the Rockies. "The pubUc is faced with a very real challenge in multiple use of this tract of land." Yet that area has a capital Divestment of million, em- ployees men receiving an annual payroll of million and has resources worth sev- eral hundred millions of dol- lars. He said he is in favor of mul- tiple use of resources along the east slope, adding any other policy would be "sheer tolly." "The social implications of restricting large tracts of this land for one purpose poses some very real economic prob- lems." Conservationists, he said, also seemed to call for a shut- down of the oil industry in the Rainbow Zama Lake oilfield "belatedly recognized as a pri- mary staging route for migra- tory ducks and geese." The area has a million capital investment and in the last five years has pumped million into the provincial coffers, Mr. Henderson said.
