Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Indian workers aided Drop-in centre managers praised Dy ROSS CJIDD Herald News Service TABER The successful summer operation of the Taber Drop-In Centre for transient Indian sugar beet workers was reviewed by Chief Const. Gor- don Hacking in a special report to town council and to the pre- ventive social services depart- ment of the Barons-Eureka Health Unit. Mr. Hacking praised the cen- tre management, Mr. and Mrs. Francis McArthur, residents of the district, and while skeptical at the beginning of the season, he hopes the project will be continued another year. This skepticism resulted from the centre's operation in 1970 under management which was "far from satisfactory" be- cause of the intrusion of local youth and the seeming distrust and lack of confidence by the Indian families. The six-man police force was put lo no end of concern and trouble last year. Stated Chief Hacking: "It is my personal opinion this has been a worthwhile project, and it has been extremely well man- during the time (this sum- mer) that it has been in opera- tion. "It would appear the main purpose behind this effort was to provide a "home away from home" lor the beet laborers who flock to Taber and district during the summer monllis. "In past years our police de- partment has often been called on lo act on problems arising out of Indian women walking the streets with their young children and with no place to go during afternoons and eve- nings. 'ITie drop-in centre has completely eliminated this problem. It has also served a very worthwhile cause in that it has afforded the migrant beet laborers a place lo go in and meel their Mends under supervised and ideal con- ditions, "Mr. and Mrs. Francis Mc- Arthur have done an exception- al job in managing this centre, and I doubt if a couple could be found that would be more suited for this position. This department did no[ receive one single complaint of any unto- ward conduct in Ihe centre dur- ing the past summer. It is known that a few situations did arise. However, they dealt with the problems themselves in a satisfactory manner." The centre, located in the court house basement, provided set for Sept. 30 a central location where farm labor requirements were regis fei'cd and filled, serving a real need for both farmers and workers. information Canada also had something to say about the drop-in centre. Students Eliza- beth Slcele and Cal Zaeharias, with limited experience with the centre, made three sugges- tions. They wanted a wide range of information made available lo the Indian people more social activities for the younger people; and wider sup- port for activities now curtailed because of insufficient funds. Their report concluded: "Al- though it proved successful in many respects this summer, its operation could well be expand- ed necessitating a larger bud- get for staff, operation, ajid recreation."

Superintendent H. H. Ross has long advocated a separate building for classroom instruc- tion so there would be room for more equipment and les- sons could be left on the boards as well as maps and room for projects.
