Officials said every major dam within 100 miles of Port Elizabeth was overflowing and landline communications be- tween the city and the rest of South Africa were cut off. Eight of the dead were in a fishing boat that capsized off the Transkei coast. The worst-hit areas were the j Gamtoos and Sunday River val- leys west of Port Elizabeth. South African Air Force helicop- ters so far have rescued 250 stranded people there. A magistrate at Hankey in the Garrtoos Valley said "at a con- servative estimate" 100 people had drowned there.

ADDRESS PRESS CLUB Mr. Dieteibakcr was address- n g the Kitchener-Waterloo "ress Club after a speech to the >4th annual Kiwanis district convention. U.S. leaders have little regard for their Canadian counterparts, he said, and Vms is evident by (he controversy over the rccent- ly-announcod additional tax on imports and Canada's clashes with the late president Kennedy. He said U.S. President Rich- ard Nixon's failure to give Can- ada advance warning of eco- nomic measures including the additional import tax reflect Washington's usual low regard for Ottawa. Ottawa's request to Washing- ton 'or exemption from the new tax, he said, was like "carrying a tin cup to put out a forest fire." Prime Minister Trudeau's I statement that the U.S. extra surcharge would wipe out many Canadian jobs is "one of the greatest alibis in history. 535.0110 JOBLESS "There are now Cana- dians out of work and the num- ber is increasing. We would have had serious unemployment because of the Liberal govern- ment's policy regardless of what the Americans did." Prime Minister Trudeau, Mr. Dicfenlraker said, "spoke with great seriousness but he must have beer smiling underneath." The prime minister should have been in Canada when the e-conomic crisis began, he said. "In my day we stayed in Ot- tawa. No amount of time was enough to get things done." ewan and Manitoba. "After all, Alberta is a prai- rie province where farmers and working people have the same problems as farmers anc working people in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. "Don't let anybody tell you this is not potentially a win- ning campaign in Alberta." Mr. Lewis said national ac- ceptance of I, h e NDP has grown primarily because of what he called Prime Minister Trudeau's failures. "Canadian people have seen that men at the top don't change a party even if they want to. "When Canadians voted for Mr. Trudeau in 1968 they saiv him as a swinger. When he kissed an orangutan recently during a tour of southeast Asia I thought it was just one swing- er deserving another."
