AGENTS FOR ALLIED VAN LINES Lethbridge area thanked Milk will follow refugees back to their former homes The milk contributed by Lethbridge Herald reader; for refugees in India will follow these people back to their for- mer homes in Bangladesh. The creation of the new na- tion out of what was East Pak- istan has resolved the long-term future of the 10 million refu- ges. Most of them will have re- turned by the end of March. However, the immediate need for feeding them, especially the children, while they are restor- ing their own food sources, re- mains urgent. The Unitarian Service Com- mittee's cup of milk fund re- ceived nearly from Her- ald readers. The annual scheduled visit of Dr. Lotto Hitschmanova, direc- tor of the USC, to the projects in that part of the world coin- cides with the conclusion of the exodus back to Bangladesh, and she has been asked to see the cup of milk program (and oth- er urgent measures) followed out in the transit camps. She has been assured of thor- ough briefing by the Canadian High Commission in India and of a warm welcome by the Bangladesh authorities. Following is a letter from Dr. Hitscbmanova to Herald read- ers: "One of the most welcome and far reaching post-Christ- mas Joys for me was your an- nouncement lint the "Oup of Milk" appeal bu netted well over S19.000 over S4.000 more than its original objec- tive.

The Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alber- ta, ai one of 12 tourist zones making up the TIAA, agreed Wednesday to pick up its share of the loss. The provincial travel promo- tion body was unsuccessful in its attempt to make a profit selling the licence plate hold- ers through Alberta Motor As- Branch and tourist industry of- fices. TCASA manager Frank Smith volunteered to pick up of the unsold plate frames from the TIAA Calgary office. The local group, however, has no plans for dispensing with the frames. on their long trek home and at the request of the govern- ment of Bangladesh, has es- tablished transit camps, to provide rehabilitation orien- ted relief. Already we have been asked for three carloads of skim milk powder and the first one more than conv pletely underwritten by your wonderful Lethbridge cam- paign will be on Its way as soon as 'shipping arrange- ments are completed.

Wherever I go I shall watch just like a mother of thousands and thousands over the disbursement of the funds entrusted to our Unitarian Service Committee as offer- ings of compassion and of gratitude that we the lucky ones here in Canada are on the giving, the helping side.
