Membership in the order is limited to 65. Canada's Dr. Charles Best was honored with the CH two years ago for his work in the discovery of life-saving in- sulin. Whitelaw, often mentioned as a future prime minister, was appointed employment minister last month to deal with Britain's economic and industrial woes.

Joining Whitelaw as Com- panions of Honor are Baron Cohen of Birkenhead, a dis- tinguished medical doctor, and Angela, Countess of Limerick, a leading figure in the British Red Cross.

First reports said some buildings were destroyed and three persons injured in this city At Chuquicamata, the world's largest open-pit copper mine a few miles to the north, the tremor sent so much dust billowing into the air that work was suspended for about an hour. No in- juries were reported there. The quake which, caused people to flee from their homes in an area extending over 750 miles, was not felt in central Santiago. Calama, near the Bolivian border, appeared to bethe centre of the quake, which was reported in Chile to measure six to eight on the Richter scale. The movement was so sharp that residents rushed to the open plazas to avoid shaking buildings. Calama is the supply city for the huge Chuquicamata mine which employs some workers and produces nearly half of the tons of copper ore mined in Chile each year. Government spokesmen said a caravan of trucks was being sent from Santiago with food, bedding and other supplies that might be required. i An earthquake measurement of six on the Richter scale meansithequake can be severe. A reading of seven means a quake capable of widespread damage and eight is a. great quake, able to do tremendous damage. school; Charlie Dennis Richer, chairman of the com- mission for new towns; John Francis Prideaux, chairman of the board of governors of St. Thomas's Hospital, London; Prof. Hugh Norwood Robson, vice- chancellor, University of Sheffield; Frederick Henry Stewart, regius professor of geology, Edinburgh Univer- Francis Taylor, founder and chairman and managing director of the Taylor Woodrow Group; James Henderson Waddell, deputy under-secretary of state, home office; Joseph Meredith Whittaker, head of the County Councils Association, and John Leslie Williams, a senior civil servant. Two women feature among knighthoods awarded within orders, usually a step up from a previous rank within the order. These are Josephine Barnes, consultant obstetri- cian and gynecologist at Char- ing Cross Hospital, and Emma Clode, chairman of the Women's Royal Voluntary Service. Both become dame commander, female equiva- lent of a knighthood, in the Order of the British Empire. FREIGHTER SINKS SINGAPORE (Reuter) The Japanese freighter Terushima Maru sank Mon- day after a collision with a Greek cargo vessel in Singapore harbor, a Port of Singapore Authority spokesman said The spokesman said Japanese vessel collided with the Greek-registered Isabela. No one was injured. PEKING (Reuter) China today disclosed the biggest shakeup of its military leadership since the purge of top-ranking officers more than two years ago at the time of the abortive plot by Defence Minister Lin Piao to take over the country. While the reshuffle does not involve any spectacular promotions or indicate a fresh purge, several provincial military commanders have been transferred to new assignments in different parts of the country. The shuffle was announced in a New China news agency dispatch reporting mass meetings throughout China between the army and the Chinese people at the turn of the year. The agency said II Teh- sheng, the army's top political commissar and one of the fast-rising younger members of the Chinese leadership, now is military commander in the city of Shenyang, headquar- ters of the northeast military region. This region is of supreme strategic importance to China. It shares a long com- mon border with the Soviet Union and was the scene of bloody clashes with Soviet troops in 1969. It also is China's biggest industrial centre. Li Teh-sheng, who was ap- pointed one of five vice- chairmen of the Chinese Com- munist party at the 10th national party congress last August, takes over in the northeast from Chen Hsi-lien, who had held the Shenyang post since 1959. Chen, who like Li is a member of the Communist party politburo, has become commander in Peking. The previous Peking commander disappeared in the purges which followed the 1966-69 cultural revolution. Another striking transfer is that of Hsu Shih-yu, who has been commander of the Nank- ing military region in central China since 1957, to Canton in the south. He replaces Ting heng as Canton commander and Ting takes over the post in Nanking. Other changes involve Tsinan military region in the east, where the commander, Yang Teh-chin, has exchanged posts with the Wuhan military commander, Tseng Szu-yu; and Lanchow military region in the northwest where Pi Ting-chun has exchanged with his counterpart in Fcochow in the southeast, Han Hsien-chu. The New China news agency report made no mention of a new defence minister or army chief of staff. Both jobs have been vacant since the minister, Lin Piao, died in an air crash in Mongolia in September, 1971, while trying to flee the -country. The chief of staff, Huang Yung-sheng, dis- appeared from public view about the same time.
