But if that failed, a cast its first United Nations Chinese veto was considered veto today, to bar the admis- sion of Bangladesh to the UN. Diplomatic sources said the Chinese were adamant in their stand as the Security Council scheduled an afternoon meet- ing to take up Bangladesh's bid after three weeks of back- stage manoeuvring. The session was viewed as another chapter in the Chinese- Soviet jousting for influence on certain. The Nationalist Chinese re- gime used the veto once in (he 26 years it occupied the Chinese scat on the Council. the Indian subcontinent.

PHONE 328-7684 I Form econoinift. advisory group CALGARY (CP) The Cal- gary Economic Advisory Coun- cil, a 24-membcr group organ- ized by ttie provincial govern- ment, was officially formed Wednesday during a meeting at city hall. It's hoped the council along with others in the prov- ince will make suggestions as to government policy on ec- onomic matters and on region- al problems. Ray Huenne of the provin- cial industrial development of- fice said the Calgary council will probably concentrate on transportation, education, Im- ports and exports, freight rates and prairie grain movement. Bangladesh, formerly East Pakistan, was born of the In- dia Pakistan war in Decem- ber that Pakistan lost. The Soviet Union supported India in the war while China backed Pakistan. The United States adminis- tration also sided with Pakis- tan but has since recognized Bangladesh and favors its bid for UN membership. A poll of the Council's admis- sions committee, which has been discussing the question for three weeks, showed 11 na- tions favoring membership and Guinea opposed. China, Sudan and Somalia did not participate in that committee vote. China says it is opposed lo Bangladesh membership on grounds that the new nalion has failed to carry out the Se- curity Council's call for with- drawal of Indian troops and repatriation of prisoners. Paki- stan echoed the same objec- tions in a letter to the council. Bangladesh denies there are still Indian troops on its terri- tory. time possibly for llirec or more years. Tliis assessment, given lo a small fii-uup of reporters Wednesday night, was perhaps one of the more sobering re- ports on the .situation since tho North Vietnamese Easter offen- sive begun. FLOW CUT A It hough the Pentagon never has asserted that lira bombing would shut off the flow of war goods io North Vietnam, ad- ministration and military offi- cials have claimed that tho flow had been reduced lo a trickle. It was stated In Wednesday night's assessment that tho amount of supplies reaching Communist forces in South Vietnam has licen drastically curtailed. Before the U.S. resunvl the daily bombing of the North in April, Hanoi received tons of supplies a month by sea and thousands more by rail. Senior air force officials say .he Norfh Vietnamese, by using .ruck shuttles and milway by- passes, still are able to bring in substantial amounts of supplies from China. Also, tho Communists have huilt one petroleum pipeline from the Chinese border and are working on a second. U.S. planes have bombed pumping stations along the route hut the North Vietnamese quickly rebuild, the officials say. COME BY SKA Supplies are also coming in by sea from Chinese ships an- chored offshore which are safe from U.S. air attacks. Nevertheless, officials say the U.S. bombing has put heavy pressure on the North and be- lieve that this, coupled with Saigon's ability to hold its ground, will force Hanoi to call off the offensive and withdraiv its forces or continue the attack until losses of manpower and supplies become too severe, forcing a return to guerrilla warfare. Or the North could push the attack even harder in the com- Bennett heckled at Socred rally COAST DOCK STRIKE Pickets appeared on, Van- couver docks Wednesday after tho International Long- shoremen's and Warehousemen's Union called out longshoremen on strike at all British Columbia porls.

The informants said the Al- gerians turned the money over Wednesday. The hijackers commandeer- ed a Delta DC-8 on tiic U.S. East Coast and made the lino fly them to Algiers, but the Al- gerian government confiscated the ransom paid for release of the passengers. The Algerians have not an- nounced whether they will grant the hijackers' request of asylum. Earlier this year, two other Americans hijacked a U.S. airliner to Algiers after obtain- ing a ransom. The Al- gerians also returned that money to the airline. OTTAWA
