Yom Kippur is a holy day of lasting, abstinence and prayer, a time when Jews traditionally examine their deeds and seek forgiveness for transgressions. It marks the end of the 10- day festival of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. claim sought from city A notice of claim against the city for has been regis- tered at city hall as a result of the lane closure between 6th Ave. and 6th A Ave. S. George Higham, of 1249 Otli Ave. S., claims the lane clo- sure has caused damages to his property which are recoverable according to the Municipal Government Act. By closing the lane, the city has caused a loss in property value, Mr. Higham says. Be- cause access to his garage has been hampered, the city is re- sponsible for the cost of a drive- way from Cth A Ave. to the ga- rage in the rear, he says. The -cost of replacing trees and shrubs removed to put in a driveway is also the city's re- sponsibility, according to Mr. Higham. Mr. Higham's properly is three houses west of the closed lane. No oilier claims have been re- ceived by the city. The claim has been referred to the city manager for consid- eration.

J. Mangga, Goni Fika and A. K. Jarinyal walk to their next class in social counselling. Nigerian students learn at college By HON CALDWELL Herald Staff Writer It's a long way from Ni- geria to the Lettibridge Com- munity College but three Ni- gerian teachers have made the journey a trip they hope will, result in badly needed improve- ments in the educational pro- cess in their developing inde- pendent African nation. All three- are teachers in northern Nigeria. Their reason for coming here is to take the social counselling course at LCC. They feel the lack of coun- selling for students is a gap that must be filled in Nifjfirian schools. 'Students cither set their goals early in life and work tcf ward that without thinking of any other possibilities or else they have no idea of what they want and just take whatever job is said J. .1. Mangga, 39, a lu'gh school Eng- lish teacher. GOVT. JOBS He said the most popular pro- fession is government because a government administrative post holds high prestige and so- cial value in Nigeria. This lack of direction has re- sulted in serious shortages in some professions doctors, veterinarians and agriculturist's are all in great demand. Goni Fika, a 30-year-old geog- raphy and mathematics teach- er, said they plan to return liome in a year and put the knowledge they have gained here to work in (here school systems. "At the start, we will find it a bit difficult to get started be- cause this will be a new tiling in our he said. "We are going to have to convince our school principals of the value of counselling." With the availability and pop- ularity of education growing rapidly in Nigeria, it is essen- tial that there be some kind of counselling available to stud- ents to assist them in selecting a course of studies, a univer- sity or a career. 'After coming here, we've begun to realize how bad the situation is at said A. K. Jarinyal, 30, a univer- sity history and physical educa- tion teacher. "People here have a better idea of where they are going and what they are going to do." The schools in Nigeria are much the same as in Canada but they are not as well equip- ped, said Mr. Jarinyal.

WATCH FOR FOUR MORE The Nigerian school year starts in January and ends hi December but.a move is being made to open a second entrance period in September, much the same as the divided school year concept that is being push- ed in some areas of Alberta and has already been used in Lethbridge. The students learn the reg- ular assortment of academic subjects in elementary and high schools, where the num- ber of students ranges from 36 to 40 per class. After high school, there are several technical or craft schools and universities from which to choose. Almost all students attending university have their tuition paid by the government. LCC STAY Tlie three teachers said they enrolled at LCC because it was recommended by a Canadian government official from Ed- monton who has been working in Nigeria. The visitors are looking for- ward with optimism to their one-year stay at LCC but they are a little pessimistic aboul southern Alberta's winters. The coldest it ever gets in Nigeria is 52 degrees. When told the temperature sometime, drops to 40 below zero here Mr. Fika was quick to give as surance that they are ready fo anything. "We went to the departmen store the other day and mad some lie said con fidently. MARRIAGE The visitors seem to take a special delight in telling Cana dians of their marriage cus toms. Mr. Mangga got the expect ed results when he told of com ing from a family with 43 chi dren. "My father has eigh he added by way of ex planation. While polygamy is an ac- cepted tradition in Nigeria, UK three visiting students onl; have one wife each. "If you have a lot of wives and then get transferred to new job, it can be a prob explained Mr. Fika in characteristic understatement. City MLAs predict success in salary increase move By GREG McINTYRE Herald Staff Writer Lelhbridge's two MLAs pre- dict the legislature will ap- prove "large but justified" pay hoosts for the 75 members of the legislature.

John Anderson (SC Leth- bridge East) said "it seems like an awful long increase at one time, but actually pay hasn't been changed for quite a while." He said "ralher than this big increase, there should be a scale adjusted yearly." Both Mr. Anderson and Dick Gruenwald (SC Lethbridgo West) felt the report will be ap- proved without much change at the fall session of the legisla- ture. Mr. Gruenwald said "the re- port was more generous than I expected." However, he added, "it will probably get quite a bit of debate, but the legislature will probabiy go along with it or cut it 10 to 15 per cent." The report recommended a sessional indemnity of bo paid all MLAs, up from and an expense allowance of up from the current Mr. Griienwald said the gov- ernment would save money by giving MLAs free airplane pass- es in addition to the free bus and train passes they have, rather than increasing expense allowances.

Money not at issue Indian association under south attack By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer The Indian Association of Al- berta is floating dangerously n troubled waters, again. Tliis time however, the issue s internal anti centres around larold Cardinal, the recently e-ejected president of the IAA. Five southern Alberta Black- oot Indian band chiefs who ack confidence in him are un- nimous in their desire'to see his reign ended. The Blackfoot bands com- prise Treaty No 7. The IAA onsists of three treaty areas the other two areas are Cree. Some of the underlying rea- ons for the internal strife were utlined to The Herald by Les lealy, a former IAA treasurer under Mr. Cardinal and cur- rently an economic develop- ment officer for Alberta Indian development Systems Ltd. ''The accountability of IAA 'unds is not the issue at as argued by the chiefs and reported in The Herald, he said. He said all association money was spent properly, and pro- duced documented proof to Uiat effect. Government red tape bogged down IAA programs and spend- ng plans, he said. "The association was denied a hearing by the standing com- mittee of Indian affairs in No- vember of 1971 to account for ,hose funds which the federal overnment had charged were mis-spent." The impending 1972 election and possible Liberal govern- ment embarrassment were sale to be the reasons the IAA was denied the hearing "to tell all." ''As the treasurer at the time I can say that the assocation spent the money the way it was forced to, with the written ap- proval of tiie Indian affairs ant secretary of state depart he said, patting the inch-thick stack of "document- ed The documents showed tha( both federal departments re quested considerable IAA funds to be spent on programs wliich Mr. Healy said, the money was not originally intended for." The IAA is hamstrung b; government funding red tape and funding de-lays, he added "Association funds are re leased on a quarterly basis tby the federal government) an wasn't forwarded until one month before the end of thi fiscal year. "We as a board were respon sible to Indian people of Alber fa and had to take drastic measures in trying to keep pro grams." Because some funds were sc late in coming that the pro- grams they were intended for could rot be carried out, the IAA community developmen funds which the governmen charged were misspent, wen channelled to other association programs. Because the IAA spendini criteria did not include sucl developments, "we requested the appropriate federal agenc ies that we do Ihat." The former IAA treasure: charged that "Mr. Chretien produced wrong, far-fetchec and foregone conclusions abou money abuses. These wen probably based on information from his staff, and rumor. "There was no IAA money misuse but the association denied the right to prove he said. "I feel that I have certain re- sponsibility in making avail ble to the public, especially le Indian public, the real rea- on why Mr. Cardinal resigned ast December. "He did not resign as a re- ult of personal animosities. Ir. Cardinal resigned due to remendous pressure from the AA he said. The association-elected exec- utive was frustrated over being solated from decision-making Mr. Cardinal and "due to ruslration and anxiety in at- empting to resolve the crisis he iroduced, pressured the presi- dent to resign." Mr. Healy also charged that he IAA executive was not the unly party to be isolated by Mr. Cardinal but the Indian affairs department was also not com- municated with. "The executive collectively felt that the- crisis situation vould be resolved if we appointed a new leader." Mr. Cardinal ruled the IAA with a lone hand and without any type of consultation with anyone, he charged. To prove the isolation the president worked in, Mr. Healy jointed to a so-called cabinet eak Mr. Cardinal exposed in the fall of 1971. "Cabinet leaks were in abun- dance at the time. "Mr. Cardinal produced an authentic cabinet document which was passed in principle jy the Tnideau cabinet on July IB, 1971. "Mr. Cardinal, without prior consultation with' the board proceeded to expose the docu- ment on a CBC television pro- gram he said. "This could have jeopardized not only himself hut the associ- ation as well, had he been proven the man who was re- sponsible for the document's disappearance from Ottawa." The document approved, in principle, a sum of million for the Alberta Indian Educa AIR CONDITIONING Alcon Refrigeration Ltd.

Phone 328-4095 tion Centre an IAA project. The cabinet approval in prin- ciple of this amount shows the AA was not misspending mon- ey, as considerable investiga- ion must have been conducted before the money was approv- ed, he said. However, considerable con- roversy, to the detriment of the IAA, was centred around a money abuse charge about which the association was not allowed to defend itself, said Mr. Healy. In addition to those prob- .ems, it seems Mr. Cardinal was advised that if he would not seek re-election in June he would probably be elected as president at the next election. Had Mr. Cardinal taken the advice he would have been giv- en a clear mandate by all Al- berta Indians. As it turned out, liis election badly split the 'association and the differences will take years to heal completely, Mr. Healy concluded.
