Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Youths Refuse To Leave Hostel VANCOUVER (CP) v- About 400 youthful residents of this city's Beatty Street armory hos- tel for transients locked the doors of the building Tuesday to keep armed forces personnel from removing their beds. They, say they will refuse to leave the building at midnight, when the hostel .contract ex- pires. There are 150 beds in- side. The occupation was declared after meetings Sunday and Monday, at which a majority the hostel's residents decided not to leave. There were more than 400 people in the hoslfil Monday night, and a hostel staff mem: her said he feared violence if Stanfield Says Tide Turned On Tax Change Proposals CALGARY (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said Tuesday the government may be prepared to reconsider the effect of white paper proposals on the Canadian economy and on resource development. He told the Canadian Club that recent statements by Fi- nance Minister Edgar Benson make him confident that the tide has turned against the gov- ernment's proposals for tax re- form. "Perhaps we are witnessing the revaluing of the minister of Mr. Stanfield said. "Perhaps in addition to un- Eskimos, Indians Avoid Doctors EDMONTON (CP) The Es- kimo and Indian people of Can- ada's North "especially the older people are really s or cal about their illnesses and be- lieve in putting up with them." That is the opinion of Andrew Jarema, 21, a second-year med- ical student at the University of Alberta who worked during the summer with people around Jnuvik, near the mouth of the Mackenzie River, miles northwest of Edmonton. "In our society we're health-o- riented. The Indian and Eskimo people aren't. "They don't look for medical help until they're in absolute dire need. Mr. Jarema went north on his summer research job as part of an elective course on northern health services offered through the U. of A.'s department of community medicine. He com- piled a register of more than 400 residents suffering various chronic diseases. In the course of compiling the register, Mr. Jarema found that respiratory diseases were most prevalent on the or list. TRY TO RECTIFY "Middle-ear infection in chil- dren is. another big one up Mr. Jarema added. Asked a the white man should try to bring his medical knowl- edge to native people who don't particularly want it. Mr. Jar- ema said: "We've created problems in places like the North. Now we're trying to rectify some of them." He cited the fact that gall stones were once a relatively unheard-of ailment amons na- tive northern people. TO DISCUSS DRUGS OTTAWA Medical, ocial and international politica! spects of mind-bending drug will be major themes of the 25th ssembly of the World Medical Association here next year, ii vas announced Tuesday. Dr. W. Peart, former genera! ecretary of the Canadian Medi- Association, will be installed s president of the international >ody. Representatives from 69 :ountries are expected for ses- ions Sept. 11-18. Mine Firm Sued For Million MONTREAL (CP) A dam- age suit for nearly million against the Quebec Mining Ex- ploration Co. (Soquem) was filed in Superior Court here by threfi Montreal-based mining companies. The companies, part of the Brossard Mining Group of Montreal, claim Soquem "re- sorted to illegal tactics to de prive them of their assets" in the exploitation of a copper de posit discovered near Val d'Or Que., in 1968. Soquem is a Crown corpora lion of which the Quebec gov eminent is the lon.e shareholder Named in the lawsuit are fou of Soquem's employees, includ ing president Come Charbon neau and Claude Gcnest, secre The three companies, Nemroi Mining Co. Ltd., Timrod Mining Co. Ltd., and Naganta Minini and Development Co. Ltd., are seeking a judicial cancellation of an agreement with Soquen signed March 14, to "explore and evaluate" the companies land holdings in the Val d'O; area. The complainants are alsc asking that Louvem Mining Co Inc., formed by Soquem in Octo ber, 1969, to operate the mine be dissolved. NATUHE AREA CALGARY (CP) The Al berta government has set up i first new "nature area" park, a 640-acrc site southwest of Cal gary. The area is set asidi under nejv legislation that pro- poses to establish as much as two square miles of Crown lam in each township as a nature area in which wildlife can flour ish and in which only non-com mcrcial development will be al lowed. However, the white man intro- uced different foods and "with change in diet, gallstones are prevalent" among Es- imo and Indian people. "We've gone in there and sort f bastardized the .h" aid. "So what are we going to o now? "We feel, I guess, that the noral thing to do is to give icse people as good care as we et ourselves." But the choice still lies with he native person. "If they don't want to see yoi be treated by you, they're loody well not going to pegging the dollar Mr. Benson :ias decided to unpeg himself. Perhaps we shall soon have a floating finance minister as well." Mr. Stanfield took credit for starting the campaign against the white paper. "At the risk of being labelled a one-issue man, I spent a lot of time and energy last winter and spring discussing this question across he said, adding that in his opinion the govern- ment now is on the run. LIKES ONE ASPECT The Conservative leader called on the government to im- plement immediately the one aspect of the proposed reform which would eliminate income tax for Canadians in the lowest economic bracket. He said, however, he wel- comed the delay on the pro- posed, capital gains tax anc measures affecting mining and oil companies. Mr. Stanfield also called for i more aggressive Canadian pol icy on the European Common Market. Canada should appoin an ambassador to the Common Market to ensure Canadian e: ports will not be frozen out. While in Europe earlier in the summer, Mr. Stnafield said, he was surprised to discover "tha our total representation to tht headquarters of the Commoi Market in Brussels consisted o five foreign service officers headed by a charge d'affaires "If we do not fight for our selves the Europeans will sim ply accept without further ad< the assumption that many 01 them already have, that we arc content simply to fulfil our des- tiny as an economic satellite o the United States." A copy of Mr. Stanfield's re marks was released in advance orce is used to try to move lie people out. City officials md no immediate comment. The slaff discovered an am- nunition room in the basement jf the armory had been broken nto, but there was no evidence n the building of weapons, gas masks or other instruments of dolenae. The mood seemed one of light icartedness. Three demands were being circulated: the hostel he kept open year round, and the gov- ernment supply food and resi- dents be allowed to slay until a suit able alternative facilities are made available; users'of the hostel have a democratic decision on how the hostel will be operated; a year round works program in which people in h o s t e 1 s are employed in works programs in co-opera- tion wilh the community, such as building parks, and they be paid for this. After the occupation was de- clared, women were allowed in as residents for the first time since the hostel opened in a storm of con lorersy early tlu's summer. Use of the armory as a hos- tel was strongly opposed by Mayor Tom Campbell and oth er city officials. Organizers of the occupation said that all hostels across Can ada have been notified of the Vancouver occupation, and are considering demonstrations in support. The spokesman said that i: lights and toilets are discon nect.ed, they will use candles for light and sneak in water.

TURIN AP Jliehele Car- dinal Pellegrino the archbishop of Turin, excommunicated a honeymooning priest today and fired the parish priest who had performed the marriage. It was the severest discipli- nary measure of its kind in j Italy since the 19G2-1965 Vatican ecumenical council, and it came from one of the country's lead- ing liberal prelates. The marriage, conducted Sun- day in a Roman Catholic church, was a direct challenge to Pope Paul's uncompromising ruling that no priest is to be al- lowed to continue in his priestly functions after marriage. Rev. Vincenzo Merinas mar- ried Rev. Renzo Grande. 37, to a former nun. Rev. Giuseppe Accossato. 34, who became a priest three years ago, was married to a childhood friend in the same ceremony. Father Ac- cossato has received no punish- ment so far. SAID MASS TOGETHER After the ceremony, the par- ish priest and the newly mar- ried priests concelebrated mass before hundreds in the church j of the Vandalino, a working-1 class section of Turin. Father Accossato escaped ex- j communication because he has filed a formal request wilh Pope Paul to be permitted to return (a lay status. He was married, however, before any Vatican permit came through. Cardinal Pellegrino, a close j friend of Pope Paul, has teen more understanding with rebel priests in the past than most Italian prelates. He has even drawn criticism from other bishops for his liberal attitudes. The three priests had been publicly preparing for the cere- mony for several months, and they had the backing of the church's parishioners.
