Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-15 Soviet's Cyprus proposal may spur UN peace effort Mirage Cindy Girling, of Hamilton, Ont., seems to be doing the amazing act of sitting on water while Darryl Shelton and Kevin Campbell stare in amazement Sne's actually sitting on sheets of styrofoam. UNITED NATIONS (CP) The Soviet call for an inter- national conference to deal with the problem of Cyprus can be expected to act as a spur to those in the UN, prin- cipally the Western powers, who would like to see the problem left to those countries which have a direct interest in the island Three of the countries with that direct interest are Bri- tain governed the Mediterranean island for decades and still has two large military bases Greece and Turkey, both of which have large ethnic pop- ulations there The fourth country, of course, is Cyprus and its people, five-sixths of whom are Greek-Cypnots with strong ties with the Greek homeland The remaining one- sixth are Turkish-Cypnots, who have equally strong relationships with Turkey Asian countries grapple with flooding miseries NO GLARE!

ST. S. LETH BRIDGE Phone 327-3609 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Asian countries lashed by some of the worst iloodmg in history, grappled with the damage Friday as muddy monsoon waters continued to recede The flooding in India, Bangladesh Burma and the Philippines left more than 800 dead official figures show Millions were left homeless crops were ruined and property damage was es- timated at hundreds of millions ot dollars The worst flooding occurred in Bangladesh and India where the high waters began a month ago Flood waters have receded in all 17 affected dis- tricts in Bangladesh but as the submerged houses became visible again the magnitude of the miseries left behind was clear The biggest problems are shelter, subsistence, sanita- tion and rehabilitation for the one million persons affected Many found their small huts in shambles and the ponds that provided their drinking water contaminated The official death toll is 1. from Bangladesh but some unof- ficial counts run as high as 3000 Officials in Dacca, the Bangladesh capital said rail road and ferry traffic is being restored in some northern dis- tricts Prime Minister Mu jibur Rahman has ordered Bangladesh on a war footing to deal with relief operations The agriculture ministry is seeking new rice seed to dis- tribute to farmers whose plan tings were washed away by floodwaters Official es- timates say more than a million tons of extra food grains will be needed from abroad to make up for damage to the rice crop In eastern Bihar state, the worst hit area in India, farmers began rice planting in an effort to salvage winter crops But all four thus far have failed in their attempts to solve the problems which have developed since the fall of the Greek-Cypriot president, Archbishop 'Makanos, July 15 and the sub- sequent invasion of the island by Turkish armed forces claiming to protect the Turkish minority The Soviets thus have chosen an opportune time to propose a conference which merely is an extension of what they have been saying all along in the Security Council but which now has taken the form of an official UN document As a formal document, it now commands greater attention The proposal also was made, conveniently, at a time when the Soviet delegate on the Security Council, veteran diplomat Jacob Malik, is serv- ing his monthly stint as coun cil president The post confers no real power but it does give the president the ability to call in other members of the 15-man council for con- sultations Malik promptly did just that, holding a long string of meetings Friday with council members invited in for talks on the Soviet plan, which proposes that the conference should include the 15 council members as well as Cyprus, Greece Turkey and represen- tatives of non-aligned countries The proposal met with little enthusiasm from Britain, the United States and permanent coun- cil but likely will appeal to the six non-aligned Costa Rica, Peru Kenya, Iraq and Mauritania The non-aligned countries most of whom regard Cyprus as a fellow non-aligned state, have felt they have been bypassed and ignored by the big powers in the search for a Cyprus solution They also have felt perhaps echoing Soviet sentiments that the tendency has been to regard Cyprus as a NATO problem since Britain Greece and Turkev all are members of the Atlantic alliance It was questionable whether Malik could stir enough sup- port for a formal Security Council meeting to consider his proposal But if no Cyprus settlement is reached beforehand he could place the conference proposal before the General Assembly for full debate when the assembly meets for its fall session Sept 17 The Soviet plov lends added urgencv to a visit Secretary- General Kurt is paving to Cvprus this weekend to confer with UN military and civilian officials there and with leaders of the Greek-and Turkish-Cvpnot communities When Waldheim's trip was first announced Thursdas onlv Cyprus was on the itinerarv COMPLETE HOMEOWNERS' INSURANCE AT LOWER RATES HUNT INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD. 1201-3rd Ave. S.
