It is at the end of a well- marked road, leaving Highway 5 about four miles south of Lethbridge and ample park- ing is available. "H you'd been here about this lime of year a century ago you'd have seen a train of six wagons, each pulled by a span of eight to 10 oxen winding along tliese bluffs and down into the valley" said Alex Johnston, president of the Al- berta Historical Society ex- plaining th'a history and pur- pose of the viewpoint. The men were from Fort Benton, Montana, and they were travelling under a permit issued to two of them, Alfred Hamilton and John Hcaly, Dy the United States Indian Af- fairs office. It dated Dec. 6, 18G9, and limited their activi- ties to moving along a poten- tial trading route without permission to do many of tl things they ended up doing. 'Their major trade gooc were Mr. Johnsto said and the "whisky" w? manufactured from pure cohol, river water, chewing tobacco for color and a few cans of lye for bite. They did a booming business, but eventually they managed to accidentally burn clown the fort "and that's how trade in southern Alberta got start- Mr. Johnston said. It was rebuilt by William Shanks Gladstone, the gran father of Senator James Gla stone of the Blood Indian R serve.

"This was perhaps the single most-important event in the history of western Canada" Mr. Johnston said the North West Mounted Police were sent to quell the traders, which they did. The NWMP, led by Col. James Macleod, tried to buy Fort Whoop-Up, but its asking price was too they moved a bit westward, and built what has become Fort Macleod. Senator Gladstone told the audience the rr'erbottom lands below were a popular spot for wintering Indian bands, who lived "pretty peaceful lives usually. 'I don't think thev ever took any he said. Then "along came theso raders from the States who built the fort, and the most wpular of their t-ading goods was the liquid stuff, which the Indians drank too much of."

U of L's Bill Beckel Blasts Human Resources And ETV Authority By JIM WILSON Education Writer University of Lethbridge Act- ing President Dr. Bill Becksl said Friday lie is convinced that the Alberta Human Re- sources Research Council "has utterly no idea what it is sup- posed to be doing He told guests at the TJ of L awards banquet he had spent "a particularly miserable day" in Edmonton at the HRHC meeting and later, at the Al- berta Educational Television Development Authority's meet- ing. "At tire first meeting, 15 hu- man resources scholars were addressing themselves to the problem of how to spend the money the government was giving them for distribution as financial as- sistance. "It became increasingly ob- vious they had no idea how to do it: they were well-intention- ed men without any idea at all what the HRHC is supposed to be doing. "Their dedication to their own particular disciplines came through, but they entire- ly missed the other person's point of Dr. Beckel said. He said they could not un- derstand that there were other academic interests in the world, as well as their own, which also deserved and re- quired financial support. His meeting with the ETV authority "which Actually has no authority" was a sim- ilarly dismal misunderstanding he said. "They also were so blindly dedicated to their personal dis- ciplines that they completely missed the other person's point of view across the table." Dr. Beckel said a major por- tion of their discussion concern- ed how and if a mechanism could be set up to censor tele- vision shows from outside Al- berta which could adversely af- fect small clu'ldren's view of Alberta. "My message, from all of this, is that you as graduates and sludenls of this university should not specialize to the ex- ten1, that you miss the other person's point of view his ideas count too. "The breadth of your studies and interests is just as impor- tant ELS the depth of Dr. Beckel said. Poor Of World Soon Two Billion "Unless the people of the rich western world change their attitude about world hun- ger, they will soon have to face a howling horde of nearly wo billion says Dr. Vladi- mir Ignatieff, retired United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization expert. He was speaking in Leth- bridge Friday to nearly 300 students of the Lethbridge Col- legiate Institute, on behalf of UNICEF. According to Dr. Ignatieff, the world is divided into three main groups, the rich western world, the communist countries and the developing countries, with the western world lh minority in population. "The developing countric: have 700 million children unde: the age of 15, more than the entire population of the west and this figure is expected tf. reach 1.6 billion people by thi end of the century. "A large percentage of thi children in developing coun tries are said Dr. Ignatieff.

Ph. 327-5454 every 10 children born in these countries, two die before the age of three. Protein is apparently one of the more important elements of a well balanced diet. Recent research shows that ths uman brain is 80 per cent developed by Ihe age of three, but without sufficient protein in the early years, the result is a retarded or semi relarded child. "Tliese pocr countries simply do not have the means of grow- ing or making their pro- said Dr. Ignatieff, and the evidence of this fact is clear in the" Dr. Ignalieff did not place all the blame on the western world, saying some of the fault is on the newly formed coun- tries who were determined to govern themselves. "If the metropolitan coun- tries couldn't take care of them after 100 years, how on earth do they expect to take care of themselves after only 10 or 15 years." Yearly salaries In many of (he developing countries are between and Canada considers the poverty level to be about per year. "It is true the economies In these countries are lower than Canada's, probably one half to one third, but this is still not sufficient to make up the dif- ference."
