Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETKBRIDGE HERALD- Wodneufay, September 17, 197Z- Lane closure still a problem Another chapter In the saga of tlie closed back alley unfolds as opponents storm city hall and arc repulsed. Three different residents have written five different letters in the last month requesting an audience with city council at two different meetings. Their requests were turned down. Tlio subject of their frustra- tions Is the lane running par- allel to 13th St. S. between Avc. and 6th A Ave. The lane was closed to traffic, but the closing bylaw has not been reg- istered with the province. Council has decided to wait until Dec. 1 to determine if the right move was taken. With rel- atively little red tape, the lane can be reopened at that time, if council agrees to do so. The letters have, been answer- ed by the mayor, who insists that the matter has been deali with and that the lane is closed only on a trial basis "to better assess the problems." The residents, who live on 6th Ave. and 6th A Ave., are not content to wait until December however. They contend the; have been unfairly treated in the matter, both in having th lane closed in the first place nod In being refused permis sion to discuss the situatio: with council. A spokesman, Marilyn Kram mer, says a lot of accidents could be caused between no1 and December in the one Ian that remains open.

Ervin Photo By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer The Indian is the most im- munized person in Canada. He is given needles and pills for every thing. But, says Otto Rath, regional director of Alberta medical services for the federal depart- ment of Indian affairs, Indian health problems are far from solved. Massive doses of white man's health care benefit have result- ed in healthier Indians as a rule, compared to a decade ago. However, when Indians go', sick the diseases they catch are more sophisticated and deadly than before. Chemical medical aid has reached the same level as is available to most other Cana- dians, he said during an Inter- view. The mortality and the death rales among Indians are lower hat they've been in the past, jut there are numerous and deadly health problems among Indians due to social condi- .ions. In essence, Mr. Rath said health care for Indians has reached a plateau where prob- lems can't be cured by needles and serums. Special efforts are made to transport facilities and suppEes to Indians living in remote areas or, the Indians are sent into areas already fully servic- ed.

He said these lead to a high- er-Hum average death rate among Indians from violence and accidents. Mr. Rath said these prob- lems must be solved by In- dians themselves. Dr. G. C. Butler, regional di- rector1 of health and welfare in British Columbia rec e n Uy said: "The biggest cause of death for Indians under 40 years of age is accident and violence, not disease." Both Dr. Butler and Mr. Rath .recommended that In- dians be given more education about the danger of alcoholism, and instruction on safe driv- ing, swimming, hygiene and so- cial and medical problems. More native people must bfc recruited into educational pro- grams which are directly link- ed to Indian band administra- tive and technical jobs, they said. Both the federal and provin- cial governments must be res- ponsible for tliis aspect of post- secondary education.

Mr. Burrows, who is mar- ried and has four children, will administer both hospitals and and is a proponent of the self- help concept wliere Indians are educated to operate their own services. The current trend is to sup- ply native people with the nec- essary education and facilities to operate their own health centres on reserves, he said.
