Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD frldny, Otleber 1971 New court injunction sought to halt N-blast WASHINGTON (CP) En- vironment groups prepared a new request today for a court injunction against a planned United States atomic blast on Amchitka Island, after the gov- ernment agreed to show UK court agreed to show the court documents on the test. An environment lawyer sail the U.S. District Court woul be asked to rule on the groups' still-pending mo lion for a preliminary injunc tion. Meanwhile, preparations fo Protest mission ship sails to site VANCOUVER (CP) A con verted minesweeper nicknamed the Greenpeace Too sailed late Thursday night for Alaskan wa- ters in a protest mission against the detonation next week of five-megaton nuclear device on the Aleutian island of Achitka. The Eclgewater Fortune, the former Canadian minesweeper HMCS Fortune, did not make a scheduled stop for fuel at nearby Steveston, but sailed di- rectly into Georgia Strait where It was to meet a fishboat carry- Taber loses out 011 road jurisdiction EDMONTON (Staff) Taber has received no support from the Alberta Urban Munici- palities Association in its at- tempt to have the province give municipalities complete juris- diction over controlled high- ways and access roads within the town limits. Mayor Aurther Avery spoke to the dele gates for the A.U.M.A. convention on the Taber resolution saying since the two have the right to set speed limits on highways run- ning through the town, it should also have the right to deter- mine access roads to the high- way. The resolution was de- feated Thursday. Mayor Avery told the Herald plans for a housing and motel site on the west end of the town on Highway 3 could not be developed until the problem of access from the 50 acre property to the highway was solved. He said the provincial gov- ernment would again be ap- proached by the town council to provide for such access. The province had previously turned down a Taber appeal. ing the original Greenpeaci mission tcday. The fuel stop would be made later. The Greenpeace missions sponsored by the Vancouver based Don't Make a Wave Com mittee, have been the focus foi mounting West Coast opposition to the United States under ground explosion, which the Atomic Energy Commissioi plans to set off no later than next Thursday. The Greenpeace Too was hur riedly organized after U.S President Richard Nixon an flounced final approval of the test Tuesday as the Canadian halibut boat Phyllis Cormack carrying the first group, was on its return voyage to Vancouver The 12 members of the first group voted to return froir Alaska when it became clear the test would not be held in October as had been planned The Phyllis Cormack was south of Prince Rupert when Mr Nixon made his announcement and out of range of reachin? Amchitka, in the Rat Islam group of the Aleutian chain. SECOND SHIP FASTER But the faster Edgewater For- tune, a 154-foot vessel, coulr cover the miles in as little as four days. It left neighboring Westminster shortly before 9 p.m. PDT Thursday with 2c men aboard. It has a top speed of 18 knots. Fortune Captain Hank Johan- sen chose a 24-man crew from more than 300 who volunteered. Three members of the Phyllis 2ormack crew planned to trans- fer to Greenpeace Too for a sec- ond trip north when the vessels met up today. "We're not going up to antag- onize Captain Johan sen said. "We hope just by our ffesence to make known our objections to the test." The group plans to stand by outside the three-mile territorial imit of the U.S. and to take scientific measurements of air and water for radioactivity fol owing the blast. Two provinces to takeover succession duty, gift tax HEGINA (CP) Saskatch- ewan and Manitoba will have their own succession duty and gift tax early next year when the federal government gives up those tax fields, it was an- nounced Thursday. The announcement was made et a news conference by Sas- katchewan premier Allan Blakeney and Manitoba pre- mier Ed Schreyer after a four- hour meeting. Mr. Blakeney said the feder- al government proposes to withdraw from the succession and gift tax fields Jan. 1, 1972, and has proposed that it would offer a collection service for those taxes if four provinces agree to substantially common legislation and procedures. In Edmonton, Alberta pro- vincial treasurer Gordon Mini- ely said he "was not surprised" at the Saskatchewan Manitoba decision. The succession and gift tax proposals will be discussed to- day (Friday) at a meeting with premier Peter Lougheed and Don Getty, federal and inter- governmental affairs minister, as part of discussions on the position Alberta will take at the federal provincial meeting, Mr. Miniely said. "We intend to make a state- ment later on Alberta's posi- tion." GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB HALLOWE'EN DANCE Saturday, Oct. 30 p.m. Music by the "MOONGLOWS" MEMBERS AND GUESTS rLABOIt!

A justice department spokes- man said the government will not challenge a U.S. Court of Appeals decision Thursday put- ting the disputed reports into the hands of Judge George L. Hart of the U.S. District Court. He said the material will be cleared of any information af- fectiong national security and turned over the judge probably later today. That means Hart's courtroom will proably will be- come the arena for a fresh challenge by seven groups of environmentalists on whether the blast should go off at all. President Nixon authorized the explosion earlier this week in telling the atomic energy commission to go ahead. FEAR HEAVY DAMAGE Seven conservation groups are seeking to halt the blast, claiming it might cause earth- quakes, damage wildlife or al- low radioactive materials to leak into the air. They say the government suppressed official reports proving their contention of po- tential environmental damage. The government argued that President Nixon had a right to keep certain information secret under the legal doctrine known as executive privilege. The blast is scheduled to go of within five days.

A consulate official said the letition will be sent to the U.S'. Smbassy in Ottawa and from here to the state department in Washington. The five-megaton blast is ex- lected next week and has been opposed vigorously in the U.S. and Canada. READY TO WAIT Chief Gordon Youngchief of Alberto's Kehewin bond stands in front of a pilo of bedding Thursday in the Edmonton office of the Indian Affairs Department. About 50 Indians from northeastern Alberta plan to stay in the offices until Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien agrees to meet them or agree to their demands for reserve improvements. Indians plan lengthy sit-in to back meeting demands EDMONTON (CP) About 50 Alberta Indians ranging in age from young children to the aged moved in Thursday to the regional office of the federal In- dian affairs department on top of a 27-storey office building here. The Indians, representing bands at the Kehewin, Cold Lake and Saddle Lake Reserves in north eastern Alberta, say they won't move out until In- dian Affairs Minister Jean Chre- tien comes from Ottawa to meet with them. The sit-in was another move in their demands for a face-to- face meeting with Mr. Chretien started Sept. 13 when parents on the reserves kept 947 cliildren out of school to protest education policies and living conditions. The latest tactic in that pro- test was barricades set u] Thursday on eight roads leading to the Saddle Lake reserve to prevent school buses from en taring. The Indians occupying the office have foam rubber mattresses, blankets, .stacks o: reading material, playing cards a transistor radio and food sup- plied by the University of Alber- ta's student union. Ralph Blackman, chief of the Cold Lake band, said if Mr Chretien is excessively tardy hi responding to the latest move, Government can't meet demands OTTAWA (CP) Indian Af fairs Minister Jean Chretien said Friday "it is impossible to meet the demands" being made of him by Alberta Indians. WINTER CAN WAIT Elizabeth Faraday, 4, of Toronto goes for a barefoot-walk along Lake Ontario as temperatures reached the 70s in Toronto Thursday. It was one of those days for adventure, a time for continuing summery pursuits knowing that the chill of winter is just around corner. 'We haven't got the money In this year's Mr. Chre- tien said at a news conference of Alberta demands for six new schools on Indian reserves in northeastern Alberta. He said he was anxious to make a personal visit to the Kehnewin, Cold Lake and Sad- dle Lake reserves but first the Indians must allow their chil- dren to return to school. "It is absolutely unaccepta- ble" that the children be kept from their classrooms and lose a year's schooling, the minister said. The Indians also must be will- ing to sit down and discuss the situation. Mr. Chretien said the Indian attitude that he must meet all of their demands could lead only to a confrontation ra- ther than "a meaningful disucs- sion." In their latest move to im- prove co.iditions on the re- serves, the Indians are staging a sit-in at the department's re- gional office in Edmonton. In the Commons Mr. Chretien said he has made "many con- including an offer to Ming in three portable schools, repair water systems and carry out work on the existing schools." But each concesion was fol- lowed by new demands, said the minister. "we will close down this Murray Sutherland, assistan regional director, said the de- partment planned no actio against the Indians and did no plan to call in the police. The Indians obtained permis sion from the firm that lease the office space to the India affairs department to remain hi the building after the office closed. Chief Gordon Youngchief the Kehcwin reserve said th are expected to remain despite a deci sion by the department to clos the office at least until Monday "We'll be here Monday morn he said, adding the Ind: ans are prepared to take eve more drastic steps in support 0 their demands. He did not elab orate. Mr. Sutherland allowed 6 staff members to go horn Thursday and told them not t return "at least until Monday. Chief Youngchief said ther are five main problems on hi reserve requiring the attentio of the department. Parents are concerned abou the removal of schools from the reserves and want action taker to improve the water supply which now comes from slough and which has been re- sponsible for the illness of sev eral reserve residents, he said. Time also is needed t stimulate employment for loca Indians, Chief Youngchief said "The unemployment rate on my reserve is 98 per cent an< there are no jobs in the area." SAYS COST TOO HIGH In a telegram Thursday to reply to Premier Peter Lough eed's request for help in solvinj Ihe problem, Mr. Chretien sai< the Indians' demands woult cost the federal government 11 iimes as much as has been Dudgeted for. Mr. Chretien said the leaders of the three reserves are seek- ing education facilities costing 55.5 million. "The amount budgeted for new construction alone in these communllies in 1971-72 is roughly Mr. Chretien said. In addition, Mr. Chretien said, ho other requested improve- ments "likely" would far ex- ceed the ?5.5 million. Today, the Native Youth Or- ;anizalkm and University of Al- wrta students plan to set up lickct lines around the building. THE WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION BOARD AlBBRTA GENERAL SAFETY SEMINAR LETHBRIDGE SCANDINAVIAN HALL 229 12lh Street 'C' North NOVEMBER 4, 1971 7.30 p.m. NO CHARGE Farmers warned to return money OTTAWA (CP) Farmers who received federal payments last year for reducing wheat acreage without taking their land out of wheat must give the money back or be prosecuted, the Commons was told Thurs- day. Marcel Lessard, parliamen- tary secretary to Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson, said in- terim payments were made under the L.I.F.T. for Lower Inventory for get the money to fanners quickly. Farmers received an acre to switch wheatland to other crops last year in the face of a world wheat glut, depressed prices and a billion-bushel sur- plus in Canada. L.I.F.T. cost the government about million of which was spent for administra- tion and aerial surveys to see that farmers truly made the switch. Albert C. C a d i e u (PC- Meadow Lake) said the govern- ment was showing a "serious distrust of farmers by demand- ing repayment when aerial pho- tographs showed their land had not been put into other crops or sum merf allow. It was ridiculous that the gov- ernment should give money with one hand, then take it away with the other. The gov- ernment had no moral or legal right to take away money it had given to farmers." Mr. Lessard said fanners who did not repay money which they were given but did not deserve would be prosecuted on an indi- vidual basis at a later time. Tito says third party won't help WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Tito of Yugoslavia rejected as hopeless a Nixon administra- tion suggestion that he help hi the search for a solution to the Middle East crisis, sources say. Informants said after Tito's meetings Thursday with Presi- dent Nixon and State Secretary William Rogers that Tito made it clear there is little if anything any third party can do if the opposing sides are unwilling to move. The Communist leader who long has sided with the Arabs in the Middle East dispute was re- ported to have argued there is no need to prepare new propos- als on the issue because more than enough good plans already are on the table.
