1HI IFTHBRIDGl HERAIB Wcdnoiday, Det-mbsr 20, 1972 Air search policy In the o! a recent dramatic :escue of a downed pile: :n the north, .here is bound to be a review oj pro- :edure5 for special f.isr.Ts in ihe lorthland. v, ;'.h pf.rticu.ar .0 armed services search and rescue operations. It is to be hoped that the review Tviil be thorough, ar.d lhat it ail] rc-sult In irr.provement _n flight safely. An intereslir.g proposal on :-earch ar.d rescue policy his been put for- ward by Dr. K. IJavid Haley of V.'o'.i- ville. .VS., who is head o: mathe- matics at Acadian and letter to a Toror.io r.ev.'ipaper is general; y credited -vith having gal- vanized the defence order that '.he search :or '.he plane be resumed. Dr. Haley that ethical con- siderations should he paramount in rescue as in other situ- ations, and that ;ne only acceptable ethic is that rescue efforts never be abandoned. He cites the case of min- ers Ln province vho knov; certainty that if they are trapped underground efforts to reach them r-.-iU 20 on aniil they are found, re- eardl-iss of time or expense. He pro- poses a similar policy for air searches. Dr. Haley's sentiments certainly do him crelit, and it -.vcuid he a fine thing ii every pilot could have as- EUrance that if his plane should down, rescue operations would con- tinue until he is found. Tnat vrould he most humane, and highly ethical. Unfortunately, it would not be prac- ticable. Tni situation of a trapped miner just cannot be compared to that of a inst aircraft; the location of the miner is known, almost precisely, v.h.le a lost aircraft couJd be any- v.here v.ithin thousands of square At hundreds of miles per hour, planes don't take long to get off course, as illustrated by the search just concluded. That plane was 200 miles off its planned course, which mean; if a plane is lost on a mil? journey the search area could be 2'j.OOO square miles. In that vast area a plane easily becomes in- visible. It can burr- itself in snow on impact, or be covered in moments by "a new snowfall. It can sink quickly and forever in marsh or in one of the thousands of northern lakes. It can burrow into dense brush without a trace to be seen from the air. Planes are always vanishing, and not only in the northern wastes. Just the other day a road construction bulldozer turned up the remains of a plane that had Iain concealed, just a few miles from a city, for at least 27 years. Similar finds are made regularly. So while it is all very to pro- pose that every air search be un- ending, it simply cannot be done, any more than there can be eternal search for every missing ship, even though survivors from sunken vessels have shown they can live for incredi- ble periods of time. At 80 to 100 a year, perpetual air searches would soon tie up every armed sendees plane, and all civilian aircraft, too. It is not a matter of ethics, hut of ability. Volunteers are important V.'ith Christmas greetings being ex- pressed on every side it is a gixxl time to wish the season's best to hundreds ot volunteer workers in Lethbridge. Some people believe the vrork of the volunteer is obsolete. With fed- eral and provincial offices such as social welfare and health insurance Eet. up to take the rub oui b'jlh physical and setbacks one cciiild suppose that the sting of such circumstances has been irradica'.ed. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Today, even paid counsellors and social v.orker; there is still a crying for that most important person the volunteer. It is the volunteer v.ho contributes the valuable cornrr.r.'l-ty time. And caring takes time, lots of it. Time to lisi.en, to help, to talk and to advise all so necessary in relieving erfy and in restoring broken dreams. Most groups would never function were it not for the volunteer fusually an already busy rnom or dad> contributing Urne, and interest to the welfare of the young people. The volunteer hospital worker gives hours of time mending, supplying comforts, writing patients' letters and operating the mobile library. Others work for veterans' causes and handi- capped citizens. The volunteer never finds enough hours in the day to care for the needs that come to at- tention. In Letbbridge more than 130 volun- teers are involved in the distribution of Meals on V.heels, delivering hot noon dinners to some 300-WO recipi- ents each month. Co-ordmator Mrs. E. Reid is assisted by a five member volunteer client's committee. Girl Guides and women's groups make dainties for special occasions to be delivered with the dinners.

The latest results, of course, do not announce a wor'dv.-ide lo the left. What in- dicate Ls Ihe politics in ire ad- vacced countries goir.g through a ar.d quirky phase. Wnile the ffer.sra! pat- tern of t'rfi new has rot yet emerged, certain e'.emer.ts are cle-r. For one thins. Presidsr-t Nix- on's trips to Cr.ina sr.d Prussia have put a defirJtive stamp of approval on the politics o: de- tentQ. The riaht wjig can longer marc effective of the lice that the left on the mortal enemies in PeVing Moscow. Thus Hilly Brandt's policy of accommodation with Commun- al Ea-s'.ern Europe gave him a landslide in the German elec- lions. Labor won in Australia by virtue of a pledge to recog- nize Communist China, And even the Communist parties in .Japan and France are acquir- ing a certain normality. A second elemer.t of the new politics follows irom the virtual disappearance of serious econ- omic depression in the advanc- ed connr.ries. Unemployment, as a result, has ceased to be a dijmir-ar-.t Ksue. President Nixon did well even in such areas o[ high imetn- pJfjyment as California and Virginia. Mr. Trudeau made his best showing in the unemployment area of Quebec. The achievement of full employment in Japan did not help Mr. Tanaka. nor does it awirn of much avail for the under President Crfor- ge-5 PompMou here in France, Instead of unemployment, the hi? domestic issue is a sociaJ dislocation curjiected with ram- pani inflation- Trroughout the pdvanced industrial world, peo- ple equipped by virtue of real estate or.stock holdings to take advantage of inflation have enjoyed a rapid rise ia in- come sr.d status. Persons fixed incomes or jobs have suffered a re'ali'.'e deeliije. Resentment of thoK who have done much bet- ter has become a dominant pol- itical passion of those left be- hind and the political leaders able to lap thai resentment have bewfitted accordingly. That explains in part why President Nixon, an exploiter of resentment par excellence, did so well compared to the rest of tho Republican party. It also explains the setback to Mr. Trudeau, a political arriviste himself, who generated resent- ment in western Canada be- cause he paid so much atten- tion to Quebec. It also provides ajrolber reason for the relative- ly showing of the left- wing panies in Japan and r ranee, as they have concen- trated on the issue of more equal shares in the general prosperity. My guess is that the issue of equal shares has now- become the main question in the poli- tics of the industrialized na- tions. But I very much doubt, despite all the confident talk of tax reform and an- incomes, that any politi- cal leader has a ZffA recipe for achieving a tetter balance in the distribution of wealth. Not surprisingly, accordingly, the shrewdest Leaders prefer the juicy melon of foreign pol- icy to the slim pickings of fair- er incomes. Thus Ms- on CriariCfellrr v.ill probably contJnut to emphasize the foreign policy issues which brought them at the potb over the vexing domestic questioTis. It Ls a surt ot times that President Pom- pidou, faced v.ith falling Gaul- list fortunes, has scheduled, just before the French elect ions, a visit Mr. Brezhnev.
