Make the future brighter for these pitiful children. Back the Cup of Milk Fund. He needs your pennies and your prayers. Cup of Milk Fund Our readers are rallying God bless you, south Albertans! You've got the spirit of Christmas! The Lethbridge Herald's Cup of Milk Fund is over the Jl.OOO-mark in its drive lo the goal. So the spirit (if Christmas is again in the air with its joy in giving and the bringing of happiness to others. It is at this time of the year that man derives a special pleasure and sense of satisfaction in opening liis heart and purse to those less fortunate. Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova of the Unitarian Service Committee has some good news: "Our great friends in Ontario have located pounds nf sldm milk powder for the USC and .1 am jubilant, as you can imagine." There is an extreme scarcity of skim mill; powder and the price has doubled from last year. Five dol- lars buys 250 cups of milk. Lethbridge Herald readers arc familiar with UK work carried on from year to year by Dr. Lotta Hilschmanova, the "one-woman relief agency." She has raised millions of dollars and shipped millions of pounds of relief supplies overseas, all in the name of Canada. Never-ending task She has been decorated by governments and praised by various world leaders. The USC, which is a non- political, non-denominational, voluntary agency, faces a never-ending task. Dr. Hitschmanova is extremely grateful The Her- ald has set a objective this year. It is the highest amount we have ever sought. We're confident south Albcrlans will come through with the goods. Remember, it cosls to send pounds of Canadian skim milk powder to India. Wc can do it. VVe who live in southern Alberta, which has been blessed with an abundance of health, wealth and pros- perity, are being given an opportunity lo relieve suf- fering of refugees. These people, bewildered, unwanted, wretched and starving, are the victims of war. We've never had a war here. We've ncvcr been driven from our homes. We've never seen our families herded like cattle, our houses burned and our men executed. We can turn a blind eye to this suffering. Or, by grace, we can make our own lives worthwhile. Big effort, Dr. HiLschmanovn's campaign this year is an espe- cially hig effort and for gccd reason. The children Irave conic lo expect Ihe milk.

Premier hints at new peace move WAHJNGTON (neuter) Israeli Premier Golda Meir hinted on arrival Tuesday night for talks with President Nixon that she might be ready to sug- gest some new path towards a Middle East peace. Mrs. Meir did not write off the currently-stalled U.S. at- tempt to bring about an interim Israeli-Egyptian accord to re- open the Suez canal. But she told reporters: "Maybe a new thing should be tried." Another possibility, she sug- gested, was renewal of the United Nations mediation effort by special envoy Gunnar Jar- by the U.S. drive on the canal question for the last nine monlhs. Mrs. Meir is due to hold talks with Nixon and other officials Thursday on Israel's long-stand- ing request for more American Phantom jets and the next U.S. diplomatic move in the search Major problems ahead for financial experts ROME (CP) Finance min- isters from 10 of the major non- Communist financial powers seem to have called a (nice in their earlier war of words and shifted to a concerted, behind- the-scenes struggle to eliminate severe international economic problems. Delegates from the countries involved, known as the Group of Ten, conclude today a two-day meeting in the ornate splendor of an ancient castle. Troops? gunmen in border battle BELFAST (Renter) British troops and gunmen firing from across the border in the Irish Republic were involved in a. major clash Tuesday night in which more than 400 rounds of ammunition were exchanged, an army spokesman said today. The spokesman said about four gunmen opened fire on the troops with automatic weapons near the town of Costieberg, west of Belfast, while the sol- diers were trying to recover a burned-out post office truck, which had been hijacked ear- lier. With the soldiers pinned down, two scout cars called in to give covering fire. Although more than 400 bul- lets were fired by both sides, no one was reported injured. It was the only major incident in a night which was relatively free of violence. Earlier Tues- day, a bomb badly damaged an electrical shop in Belfast, but 10 one was injured. But major problems lie ahead. The six Common Market countries and Britain and Japan have reiterated their unwilling- ness to revalue their currencies upward under U.S. pressure un- less the Americans also devalue their dollar. Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son of Canada said at the close of Tuesday's four-hour session the problems created by the U.S. decision Aug. 15 to impose a 10-per-cent import: surcharge and siispcnd the dollar's con- vertibility into gold had not been settled. Asked whether any progress had been made, Benson replied: "What's progress? We're still talking." But U.S. Treasury Secretary John Connally, French Finance Minister Valery Giscard d'Estaing and West German Economics Minister Karl Schil- ler insisted some progress had been achieved. for a Middle East settlement. Her third to Wash- ington since Nixon took comes at a critical juncture in Middle East developments. The latest crisis was brought about by Egyptian statements indicating possible renewal of hostilities, the UN debate on the Middle East starting Thursday which is expected to complicate peace diplomacy, and Israeli- U.S. differences over the effect of Soviet arms deliveries to Egypt on the military balance of power in the Middle East. The 73-year-old leader apparently was brought to Washington by broader con- cerns than her government's un- answered request for more Phantom supersonic aircraft. She said she would IK worried if she did not get fhc planes, hut that the main focus of her dis- cussion would be U.S.-Israeli re- lations. In Amman, Jordan, King Hussein of Jordan called on Arab states today io mobilize their armies for a showdown with Israel "because force is the only means that can resolve the Middle East conflict." In a speech from the throne opening the Jordanian parlia- ment, the 36-year-old monarch said that Israel "believes only in force, so force must be our way to peace." file militant tone of the king's policy speech indicated he is moving closer to the thinking of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat who said his country has decided to resolve the Arab-Is- raeli conflict by armed combat rather than peace negotiations.
