Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 5, 1973 Pollution rider A-Washington cyclist wears a protective mask again- st the smog as he peddles along a downtown street. The Washington area has experienced more than a week of pollution alerts with a record-breaking reading of 165 during mid-point of the crisis. Former courts aeci MONTREAL (CP) John Diefenbaker, former Canadian prime minister, has t e r med as "unjust" and "retrograde" a recent Supreme Court of Can- ada decision upholding a section of the Indian Act under which native women who marry non- Indians lose their Indian status. ;vlr. Diefenb a k e r, Con- servative Member of Parlia- ment for Prince Albert, said he would "bring the matter before Parliament in the next few days." He said the decision dis- criminates against women be- cause Indian men do not lose their native status under the In- dian act when they marry non- Indians. "In making the decision the Supreme Court has placed itself eteve the provision of the Cana-- ciian Bill of he said. "To be sure that Indians would have equality of citizen- ship was one of the reasons for creating the Bill of Rights, which provides for non-dis- crimination on the basis oJ race, sex or religion." Mr. Diefenbaker was in Mon- treal to visit Man. and His World, site of the 1967 world's fair, and the site of the 1976 Olympic Games. Burned trees used for construction SONORA, Calif. (AP) The house you live in may be built from trees that once burned in a forest fire. Logging crews are hauling out scorched lumber from for- ests throughout California and other western states, where the worst fires in 20 years have ravaged nearly acres of trees and brush. Lumber company spokesmen say as much as 90 per cent of the wood from trees killed in these fires as useable as com- mercial lumber if loggers can get it out of the forests bsfore it becomes infested with insects. "Ninety per cent of the time a fire will burn the bark and kill the tree, but the fire's burn- ing so fast it doesn't stay in one spot long enough to destroy the said Mark Bevan, chief forester for Fibreboard Corp., a San Francisco-based firm. "The bark may be charcoa and the branches all burned off but inside the trunk the wooc can be good as on a live he said. Logging in a burned forest is much the same as in a nonna one, Bevan said, except th< charred wood covers the men with grime and wears out their saws faster. "The real loss is in young growing trees that were our fu Bevan said. Housing tenants must participate QUEBEC (CP) Public housing tenants have a duty to participate in tenants associ- ations, says Ian Watson, Lib- eral Commons member for La- prairie. Mr.' Watson, parliamentary secretary to Ron Basford, con- sumer and corporate affairs minister, told a convention of the Public Housing Tenants As- sociation that the organization would bave been an impossibil- ity three years ago. But co-operation between gov- ernments and tenants had made it possible, he told the 250 dele- gates, who sought during a three-day meeting here to lay the groundwork for organizing public housing tenants in Canada. The delegates approved a five-man national council to govern the body with Joe McKeown, of Saskatchewan, as its president. The Quebec delegation, after some hesitation and debate, de- cided to join the national body but abstained on the vote to ap- prove its new constitution. Quebec delegates said there is no municipal housing tenants association in Quebec. A con- stitution adopted here made no provision for such a group to enter the national council. A compromise agreement reached later allowed provincial delegations to mend the con- stitution in the next four months. The group wants uniform renl scales across the country with grievance procedures for ten- ants. It also wants public housing tenants to have the right to relocate in another province with a guarantee of govern- ment-subsidized housing and the right to negotiate with the fed- eral government on behalf of ol public housing tenants.
