OTTAWA (CP) A 24 hour occupation of the Indian affairs building by militant natives ended peaceably Friday, but de- partment officials said later some confidential files on the controversial James Bay hydro development are missing. Following the sit-in in the 15- storey federal building, about 200 of the demonstrators drove their drive-yourself vans and rented buses to Parliament Hill, but left peaceably after a few Indian war dances when Indian affairs Minister Jean Chretien could net meet with them. Arthur Manual of Kamloops, B.C. head cf the Native Youth Association told report- ers he didn't know of any files being removed during the 24- hour sit in. During the early morning de- parture from the building Fri- day, police officers were on guard on the doors. A departmental official said files on the James Bay project, a multi-million dollar hydro power development in north- western Quebec that will flood land claimed by native groups, were missing. The missing files were marked secret and were "for at on Sivision, Department of Agriculture, j determna irrigab'lity of lands within and our- es'cb' shed irrigation districts.

"Nobody gets to see them ex- cept for very high officials." Most of the demonstrators were members of the youth as- sociation, a militant movement. They included Indians and Metis and were mostly betoveen ages 15 and 30. They moved into the offices at dawn Thursday and left about 9 a.m. Friday. A spokesman said they occu- pied the building to show their unhappiness with the depart- ment's youth liaison program and government inaction on the James Bay project, on native land claims in British Columbia and on the implementation of the Jay treaty, a pre-Con- federation treaty between the United States and Britain that would give Indians the rights of trans-border movement between Canada and the United States. He said he thought the dem- onstrators had achieved their purpose. However Indian Affairs Minis- ter Jean Chretien said the real issue was the department's re- fusal to finance an association meeting now in session at Corn- wall, Ont. The Indians had promised a peaceful demonstration'but Mr. Chretien, who told reporters about the missing files, added: "I don't think it was peace- ful." The main thrust of the dem- onstration, according to one spokesman, was that "we're tired of having Indian affairs ram programs down our throat. We want to be consulted.1' "We know what programs we need, and government help must be co-ordinated with the aims of the NYA. Under the youth liaison spe- cialist program, the deportment hired 33 Indians at an annual salary of to help the NYA. In a meeting with the minis- ter in June, the youth asked the department to shelve the program and negotiate the form any programs might take. Cholera outbreak spreads in Italy Ottawa warned to stay out of telephone business SASKATOON (CP) West- ern communications ministers ended a two-day conference Fri- day by warning Ottawa to stay out of provincial areas of juris- diction. They expressed particular concern about a federal "green paper" on communications ear- lier this year that suggested a form of joint federal-provincial of telephone rates.

Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation, said the report.and public re- action will form the basis for legislation to protect athletes in organized sport. The report was prepared for the province by L. W. Bowney Research Associates Ltd. of Ed- monton and was most critical of amateur hockey, particularly the advanced junior leagues. It describes the conditions as "little different from a slave market" in those leagues. The report brought strong re- buttals from amateur hockey spokesmen. program ends MOOSE JAW (CP) One of the longest-running programs on Canadian radio, Mrs. Hall's Kiddie Show, had its last broad- cast Friday. The program, designed to as- sist youngsters in musical en- deavors, has run weekly since 1936 on CHAB. Mrs. Ethel Hall is retiring. wan's minister ot government services, gave the meeting's consensus at a news confer- ence: "The ministers concluded without too much debate that telephone rates are wholly within provincial jurisdiction and that they themselves are united in opposition to any fed- eral control or regulation. "Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta are regulated by the provinces and residential tele- phone rates have been histori- cally low in the interest of the general public. "Westerners, we concluded, have good cause to be sus- picious of federal ambitions to regulate common carriers be- cause the West has long suf- fered under discriminatory freight rates in favor of Eastern Canada." Mr. Brockelbank said the fed- eral government wish to have low national long-distance tele- phone rates would mean higher rates to make up for lost reve- nue. While telephone systems in the three prairie provinces are provincially owned and regu- lated, B.C. Telephones is a pri- vately owned company that is federally incorporated and regulated. Communications Minister Robert Strachan of British Co- lumbia said his government wants to take over regulation of B.C. Telephones. "I suggest to Ottawa that in all fairness they cannot deny to one province the rights that are already enjoyed by three other provinces and other provinces in Eastern Canada also "The direction and control of B.C. Telephones is completely in federal hands and they are denying to British Columbia the same rights that are being en- joyed by other provinces.
