(AP) With 10 Appalachian coal camps in flood-devastated ruin, relief agencies began in earnest today tlie job of finding living quart- ers for the thousands of home- less from Buffalo Creek hollow. Many persons still were re- j polled missing in the wake of Saturday's flood and the deatb i toll stood today at 67. More than persons were left homeless following the flood, caused when tons of water broke tlvrough n mining company dam and spilled through the hollow. Officials of federal and relief agencies Monday night cleared the books out of the public li- brary and began setting up of- fices to provide emergency aid. Monday afternoon the Federal Housing Administration began taking application for emer- gency housing.

The Lebanese troops ad- vanced in thfc wake of with- d r a w i n g Israeli forces who claimed they killed about y> guerrillas nnd wounded nearly 100 in four days of air and gound attacks that left the Pal- eslinins' stronghold in the Ar- kob region "in complete disar- ray." An Israeli military spokesman in Tel Aviv said Israeli casual- ties totalled 11 wounded and that all liad returned fo duly. Communique from Hie guer- rillas put their losses at 20 dead and 35 wounded' and Lebanese sources reported two civilians and 10 Palestinian refugees killed. The Israelis claim there arc guerrillas in the area, WARNED VILLAGERS The Israeli attack began Fri- day in retaliation for guerrilla raids last week that killed five Israelis. As the Israeli forces withdrew Monday, they left leaflets in Arabic warning of further assaults unless the Le- banese government halted guer- rilla activity. They also warned the villagers to remove the guerrillas from their midst or expect more damage to their homes and villages. The UN Security Council in a resolution voted unanimously early Monday demanded that Israel stop her attacks and withdraw from Lebanon. An Israeli army said one objective of the opora- I ion had been to try to make the Lebanese army reassert its au- thority over the area. Lebanon's dilemma is that the country Is morally bound by the 19C9 Cairo agreement to assist the Palestinian resistance movement by allowing com- mando bases in the country. One suggestion to the govern- ment, he said, is that the money be included in the farm income stabilization plan. A bill to es- tablish the plan was withdrawn last fall by the government in the face of opposition criticism and is to be rc-subirjlied to the Commons at a later date. Tha two-price system is ex- pected this year to pay grain- growers on the Prairies and wheat farmers in the rest ot Canada up to each.

"There is a differential o f per student .n government payments something which did not exist alxnit three years ago when tlie difference in pay- ments per student was about DISCUSS PROBLEM He said in an interview, the college has a good relationslup with advanced Education Min- ister Jim Foster and that two meetings have been held re- cently to discuss the problem. "I am sure the minister wants this inequality recti- fied." Mr. Saxlon, an Edmonton lawyer, said that as a result of the low government payments for the school's 370 studenls, the college faces a serious fi- nancial situation, "If we get to within 5150 of the public college grants now we might stand a chance. But if it's a few ycnrs from now, we won't mnkc it." LISTS DEBTS Mr. Saxlon said the liberal arts college was in debt to the Cnmrose branch of the provincial treasury at the end of 1371. It also was unable to make its annual pay- ment to the Treasury. The op- erating deficit for the year was "Through nrassive cuts, though not yet in students, we are projecting a operat- ing sui-plus this he said, explaining, however, that this did not Include the annual trea- sury payment. "We have made our case to advanced Education Minister Jim Foster as strongly as we can but so far we've heard rjothuig. I can't believe Mr. Foster wants us to go belly up."

Mr. Ix-wis said in an interview after his speech. "There we-e some people con- cerned about unemployment, many thinking about political action on Ihe federal level, many supporting the Parti Que- bocois and some supporting other political solutions. "I don't tliink you can build H valid poliiical movemenl out of mixed bag like this." Mr. Levesque described the rally, attended by more than people, as "a happening." "H docs confirm, however, that there is .something here drawing ali .sorts of different pccple together. It is very ten- uous but there seems lo he some sort of mainstream feeling towai-ds unily in Quebec." SAYS YKAILS WASTED In his speech, Mr. I.euis .said the "Trudeau years" have been wasled for the working man and all Canadians, nnd blamed Uie Trudeau government for creat- ing mass unemployment "Unemployment is unaccepta- ble, cruel and inexcusable in D country us rich as the NDP leader said. "A govern- ment which docs not support the working man has no longer any right lo govern. "As long as Ihe threat of un- employment is over their heads, as long as governments mako themselves Ihe sei'vanls of big business, workers will have to organize themselves lo show discontent."
