Harold Cardinal's resignation as president of Uie Indian Asso- ciation of Alberta was demand- ed Thursday at a mcetir.g of Southern Alberta Indian Chiefs.

Mr. Copithorrre is scheduled to speak to the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce Wed- nesday evening and to visit the Taber, Blairmore and Pineher Creek areas Thursday and Fri- day.

Known in the south as the "Cree Ihe IAA comprised of Alberta's three treaty areas, two of which are Cree. The chiefs want Cardinal's resignation primarily for two reasons: his failure to live up to his recent re-election prom- ises of which one was that he would consult with all Alberta Indian chiefs before making de- cisions. This has not been done, The chiefs doubt Mr. Car- dinal's leadership abilities be- cause he resigned as IAA pres- ident during last fall's crisis with the federal Indian affairs department boss Jean Chretien. Also, the chiefs said, Mr. Cardinal has never given an accounting in regard to charges levied by Mr. Chretien last fall that IAA funds had been abused. In July southcro Alberta In- dian spokesmen said the more economically powerful Black- foot bands had all but been ex- cluded from top IAA executive posls and that there was no tangible evidence of the IAA ever having done anything for the south.

By GREG MclNTYRE Herald Staff Writer Ths "crisis" point at which alt the water in the Oldman River is spoken for is fast ap- proaching, says Dr. C. D. Stew- a foremost authority on water resources in Western Canada. Dr. Stewart, Terry Bland, president of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce and Gordon 'CoUedge, Lethbridge Community College informa- tion officer were in Calgary to- day drumming up publicity for a conference Oct. 13 and 14 called: Crisis in the Oldman River Basin. A s evidence o t impending water shortages in the river, Dr.. Stewart said that last year for "a couple of days" Alberta was unable to meet a commit- ment to Saskatchewan to pass on at least cubic feet o! water per second. AGREEMENT An agreement between the two provinces signed in the 1960s requires that Alberta pass to Saskatchewan half the flow of the Oldman River, no less than cubic feet per second flow, and water up to certain quality standards. "Most people don't xtiovv thai for a couple of days last year we (Mdn't meet that commit- said Br. Stewart, for- mer chairman the Regiaa- based South Saskatchewan River Development Commis- sion. With increasing municipal, industrial and irrigation de- mands on the river all the time, the point will soon be reached when there will be no unallo- cated water left in the Oldman, he said. QUARRELS Quarrels that have already started between different groups making demand on the available supply, will increase. A major objective of the Oc- tober water resources- confer- ence, scheduled for the audi- torium at Lethbridge Commu- nity College, is to determine in "hard facts" just how much water there is in the Oldman River and exactly how much water is required in the region using it. "What I propose is that we gather all the facts so that the coming generations who have to make these major decisions (such as diversion, schemes) will have the necessary infor- said Dr. Stewart. Only "small projects" such as a possible reservoir some- where on the Oldman upstream from Lethbridge will be re- quired before the year he predicted. The reservoir could regulate high and low flows to conserve water. Another immediate means to better use the avail- able water is improved irriga- tion techniques, he said. "But what we don't want at this conference is a lot of specu; lation on possible projects. The aim is to gather the facts ant see what the situation is." Dr. Stewart, president jCC, will chair the two day conference which is open to tha )ublic and sponsored by tha water resources committee of :he chamber of commerce. At a news conference at tha Calgary Inn today, organizers hope to stir up interest among the Calgary news media so that people from British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Montana will join Alberta delegates in discussion. Wilf Bowns, general manager of Ihe chamber, said registra- tion fees will be "kept to a minimum" in an effort to at- tract a good turnout of students and Ihe general public. Invitations have been sent la Alberta cabinet ministers in- cluding Hugh Homer, agricul- ture; Bill Yurko, environment and Allan Warrack, lands and well as representa- tives of all municipalities, mu- nicipal districts and counties within Ihe Oldman River basin. Near-record seen Harvest plans JL set for beets No successor Al Brewer, district represen- tative of the provincial depart- ment of culture, youth and rec- reation, will leave Lethbridge Uiis week to take a new posi- tion with the department in Ed- monton. He has been with the local branch of the department since February, 1968. He will take the office of sup- ervisor of the volunteer ser- vices brancli, where his job will be (o stimulate self-heip programs and volunteer proj- ects. No decision has been made regarding his replacement ia Lethhridge. A near-record harvest of 050, 000 tons of sugar beets is ex- pected from southern Alberta's acres when initial field work starts Sept. 18. The first 10 days of harvest will be on a controlled basis with receiving stations allowed only set tonnages to allow the Taber and Raymond processing factories to gear up for the full scale field operations Sept. 2B. Arledge Hill, assistant agri- culture superintendent for Can- adian Sugar Factories Ltd., said a good average yield of 15 tons per acre is expected. Last year the record 16Vi tons per acre was set on acres. When operations are in full swing, contract growers in ths Bow Island-Nobleford-Ma- grath Picture Butte Vauxhall region in southern Alberta's ir- rigation belt will haul bee's to 14 receiving stations. Mr. Hill said the final har- vest will depend on weather conditions. "Good fall weather will facilitate the storage of sugar in the beels, both in the field and in lie said. "Sunny weather with DO early frost at least until Oct. 1 will be ideal." It is impossible to determine the sugar content of the beets Drug project hassle continues Indian-white gap growing?

At least that was the impres- sion given at a Thursday after- noon meeting of the Native Friendship Society of South- ern Alberta Local Incentives Program. L.I.P. workers at the meet- ing in essence declared tiKsy would not work under the man- agement of a white person Bill McDougall who was offer- ed and accepted the position Wednesday. As a result of the discussion Lelhbridge Friendship" Centre director Bill Head, who earlier declined the job and recom- mended Mr. McDougall, was again offered the job which ho accepted. The federally-financed L.I.P. serves as an alcohol and drug counselling and preventive treatment program which is re- sponsible to the NFSSA. And NFSSA is an integrated group which in addition to running the friendship centre, professes to be working to close the In- dian-white gap. The co-ordinator vacancy oc- curred recently after Bose Yel- low Feet resigned the post to take another job in Edmonton. Last week the federal gov- ernment was approached to ex- tend the L.I.P. program until the end of the year when a fur- ther year-long extension will be- sought. The federal boss of the pro- gram bad recently instructed the NFSSA to lure a new Leth- bridge co-o rdinator "imme- diately" to avoid cancellation of the project. Roy Little Chief of Calgary was earlier given the job by Mrs. Yellow Feet without au- thorization. Indians are given very few opportunities for responsibility and the L.I.P. should be oper- ated by Indians to prove to the rest of society that they can do _ od job, on Indian NFSSA member said. The word "discrimination" against whites by Indians crept into the meeting. At the conclusion of the meet- ing some non-native persons felt the original purpose of friend ship, working together and closing the Indian-white gaps, had been given up. The NFSSA has been crip- pled by money and manage- ment problems since its incep- tion about three years ago and led to near month-long clo- sure earlier this year. Recently the secretary of slate's department announced a further will short- ly be made available to the centre for the current fiscal year in addition to the federal provincial and municipal funds already avail- able.
