Welfare hasn't done job, U of L study shows 'South Indians engulfed in vicious poverty cycle' By RUDY HAUGENEDEB Herald Slatf Writer First of four A vicious circle of poverty en- gulfs the Blood and Peigan re- serves in southern Alberta says University of Lethbridge ep- onomics study. department research over long periods unless it has the natives' understanding, ac- ceptance and the first phase which took four months to complete, of the study reveals. No development program could "go far" unless policy is geared to the environmental specific needs, characteristics, The U o[ L paper shows young people are more willing lo try methods and acquire basic skills. Data on the Blood population indicate that, the approxi- mate population of close to 50 per cent are below the Government handouts in the torm of welfare have "not proved to be far-reaching ex- cept perhaps as a substitute for relieving distress and discon- tent." CONTINUING STUDY Policies which encourage In- dians to become self supporting 'with self esteem and confi- dence" must be introduced says the paper, the first of a contin- uing study. But the economic develop- ment of the Indian communities is not purely technical in terms of changes in capital, labor or help. Changes must be geared to include the social aspects of native culture which are cur- rently "undergoing different patterns of development1'. They must also recognize the growth potentials of Indian communities, the paper states. "Experience so far shows that development cannot pro- ceed effectively nor prevail problems and goals of each In- dian society. In addition, no policy of in- troducing massive doses of out- side help would produce im- provement unless they arc channeled to motivate improve- ment through a self-help type of program. FALTER Most injections of outside help have faltered because they have not been geared to tha specific needs and resource base of the Indian communit- ies. age of 15 years old, and Is increasing. This implies, the paper states, that a new govern- mental role in the direction of development is highly essential if persistent unemployment is to be overcome in the future.

Charged is Reginald E, Compton of 1003 17th St. A. N., whose car was in collision with a vehicle, police said, was driv- en by Ernest Hillel of 2417 9th Ave. N. The Compton as a result of the collision cut a swath through" the yard of Steve Mik- los of 2421 9lh Ave. N., hit the Miklos house, continued on to run over a small tree, then hit Mr, Miklos1 parked car. To be successful, the report concludes, development pro- grams must provide a feeling that they originated locally. The report says Indians have strong "community loyalties" and would be more wining to accept programs which origin- ated at home through leaders they respect and trust. Indians are keen 'in their de- termination for greater _ auton- omy over their own social and economic affairs." LISTED "An efficient and practical educational program could im- prove social, economic and cul- tural conditions and upgrade the level of knowledge and it states. High priority must be given to programs to improve agri- cultural practices and utilize the currently misused, under- used, and nonused resources o both reserves more efficiently There must be a more dir- ect involvement by the business community in mounting the sort of programs that are required to upgrade Ihe native economy and to provide the basic skills lo the natives." MANY STUDIED The 100-page sludy for which data was compiled from 127 Indians of all ages and social status was studied and cross- computed, said: "Indian people are rapidly becoming more and more im- patient and are becoming exceedingly self-conscious of their persistent poverty, econ. omic and social inferiority which is aggravated by the rev- olution of rising expectations and growing awareness of, how other Canadians live." Earlier this year the Kalnal News, a Blood bi-monthly pub- lication noted that there were "anywhere from 50 per cent to 70 per cent of the people on the Blood and Peigan reserves who are receiving welfare. Thirty-five per cent ol the population are permanent cases arid the rest are receiving as- sist nnce only on a temporary basis. "Although the total percent- ages may sound great, it has a lot to do with the whole re- serve situation. There just isn't Free enterprise was the topic of three featured speakers at an Araway company convention at the Holiday Inn, Saturday. Deane Gundtock retiring MF for Lethbridge, said to be suc- cessful in life, we have to make a success of the "three r's." Besides reading, writing and arithmetic, he added that we have to be real, right, and rea- sonable. Rev. Albert Baldeo, minister of the United Church in Coal- dale spoke of how impersonal the world is, and that people are afraid of each other. Mr. Baldeo said he is thank- ful of being cble to live in a 'free" country. He concluded by saying Christian countries have the freest enterprise systems. Chamber of Commerce President Wilt Bowns said Ca- nadians are a part of the free system but apathy will replace this system wilh legislation, so it will be difficult to be a free agent "unless you're careful.'
