Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, October 21, 1974 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta Search cut back EDMONTON (CP) The search for a missing helicopter in northwestern Alberta has been reduced once again. After 21 days of searching by the Canadian forces in Ed- monton, plus three additional days by Alpine Helicopters of Calgary and Consolidation Coal of Canada of Red Deer, military personnel have been ordered to dismantle search headquarters in Grande Prairie effective Sunday night. Capt. Craig Mills said Satur- day that in essence the search has not stopped as military flights in the area will be diverted over the search area and will maintain visual and electronic surveillance and the same holds true for civilian aircraft in the vicinity. The helicopter, with pilot Mike Haose of Calgary and passengers Gerrit Hildebrandt of Edmonton and Wayne Penner of Red Deer on board, was reported missing Sept. 22. The search area has been covered and recovered although searchers were hampered by bad weather much of the time.

Mr. Green, in Edmonton to attend a mass union rally tonight, said in an interview that there is discontent across the country with wages paid to the civilian employees of arm- ed forces bases. However, he agreed after talking with Lou Purcell, president of the Alberta branch of the union, that the Alberta employees are much more militant than are workers at bases. Mr. Purcell said many of the 759 civilian employees, es- pecially the heating plant operators, are working seven days a week, up to 12 hours a day, because the Armed Forces are unable to keep employees who leave to obtain better wages elsewhere. With an average base rate of an hour, he said, they are earning from to an hour less than comparable workers in industry. Mr. Purcell said the Treasury Board refuses to provide a "respectable" raise in pay so more people would hire on at the bases, with the result that heavy overtime shifts are being worked. One worker went 75 days with no time off last year and some have gone as long as 60 days this year, he said. An 8Vz per cent increase was offered last month by the Treasury Board, Mr. Purcell said, "but this didn't even keep up with the rising cost of living."

Enoch band to go ahead with million plan WATCH FOR IT COMING SOON 'MILLION DOLLAR SHOW HOME 74 EDMONTON (CP) The 560 members of the Enoch In- dian band have "stuck their necks out" with an original proposal for land development on the Stony Plain reserve near Edmonton, says Cliff Sim, the band's land development officer. And, despite the uncer- tainties of financing and bu- reaucratic tangles, "there's no way now they're going to stop." Currently under the scru- tiny of government depart- ments in Edmonton and Ot- tawa, the scheme proposes a five-square-mile, fully-serv- iced townsite where about 000 homes would support a population of on leased, rather than purchased, land. The leasehold system would overcome both the high cost of land and the inevitable dilapidation of neighborhoods, said Mr. Sim. "Apply to houses the ex- ample of the car that depr- eciates through use to the point where it is of no use. The same process will take place with a home except over a longer period of time. "The advantage will be that it will never become a slum area because the Enoch Land Development Corp. (the na- tive company proposing to handle the development) will buy out the depreciated home at the market value and re- place it with the type of home that is required in 2034." Mr. Sim's reference to 2034 .related to the hypothetical purchase of a home in 1974 on the basis of a 60-year lease on the land. The band's proposal, which also envisages a large recrea- tional area and a one-square- mile industrial park with the emphasis on job-rich industry, is seen as a way of guaran- teeing the Indians' .economic future. The band has 31 oil and three gas wells, which are likely to be drained by the middle 1980s. "The whole idea is said Chief Ray Cardinal, "so that when the wells run dry we'd be looking somewhere else for a source of revenue." The five square miles pro- posed for the development were previously leased to pri- vate operators for recreation- al use and to the national department of defence for weaponry practice. But with the cancellation of the leases, the land now is al- most completely unused, in contrast to the other 13 square miles of the reserve where top soil supports grain farming and ranching. Chief Cardinal and his coun- cil agree their leasehold idea would need a new kind of home buyer, but assert that the Edmonton area's growing population base and shifting attitudes towards ownership will combine to make their idea financially viable. The leasehold system has been a basic requirement of the band since the idea of the be called Keloskeno, Cree for "oar root in the late 1960s. Land surrenders by earlier band councils have left the In- dians with an aversion to any development involving out- right sale of the land. Enoch council members stress that funding for the development will not come from the govern- ment "but will by other largely from private enterprise. Further disclosures on fund- ing are being withheld pend- ing a justice department re- view of legal requirements for the native development corpo- ration. Since Indian reserves come under federal legislation, but the services that Ketuskeno town would have to provide, such as schools, hospitals and roads, would likely come un- der provincial statute, the band development has en- tangled the possibility of leg- islative amendments at both levels of government. Mr. Sim is convinced the various levels of government will eventually sanction the plan. He said the government can hardly fail to see the ad- vantage of Indian capitalism, especially in light of growing demands on urban develop- ment. Burns Lake asks for tree farm BURNS LAKE, B.C. (CP) The North Central British Columbia Municipal Associa- tion has urged B.C. Resources Minister Bob Williams to grant a tree farm licence to this community, 145 miles west of Prince George. Fourteen mayors and aldermen from eight com- munities decided at a meeting Saturday to let Burns Lake be the area's experiment in the forest industry, while other municipalities watch and learn from the results. Mayor John Baker of Bums Lake said he hopes for a deci- sion from Mr. Williams within a month. If the minister approves, a five year operating plan for the acres along the shores of Burns and Decker Lakes should be ready to go ahead in a year. Mayor Baker said. Although the association is to carry the tree farm bid to Mr. Williams, Chairman Gordon Rowland, Mayor of Terrace, B.C., said be was not convinced. "I think you're kfdding be said. "You're not going to control the tree farm licence. You'll create more bureaucracy and duplicate what the province government's already Mayor Rowland also wanted to know whether manufactur- ing plants would be dependent on production from the municipally administered forest. He was told the town had a ready market through a new mill currently under construction that has to obtain 20 per cent of its wood from outside its own cutting area.
