Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J.0 - THE KTHBRIDOE HERALD - Thunday, January 28, 1971 Wootco Cholera kills hundreds in sweep across Africa LAGOS', Nigeria (AP) - Ignoring national borders, cholera lias swept across West Africa in the last year, killing hundreds of persons. The disease never has been endemic to Africa, but it got a foothold in Guinea last summer and now has spread 1,500 miles to Nigeria, whose 60 million inhabitants make up the most populous country in Africa. Although the Guinean government denied that any of its citizens had cholera, the World Health Organization reported 2,000 cases with 60 deaths at the end of August. The El Tor variety of the killer disease moved westward to neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia. In both countries, local doctors said the 40-odd cases officially reported represented only part of the actual .number. Governments don't like to scare off tourists and businessmen. Like dominoes, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Toto and Dahomey were afflicted by the disease. Ghana was severely hit, with more than 300 cases and 50 deaths officially reported. The disease followed a path along the coast in the wake of thousands of uncounted traders, smugglers and plain visitors who move illegally across borders at night. In Nigeria so far the disease has been confined to the western sections, mainly in and around the country's two largest cities, Ibadan and Lagos. Cholera has not infected Moslem-dominated northern Nigeria, but it may be only a matter of time until it does. Even more disturbing is the probability that cholera will advance into the densely populated East Central state, the Ibo core of the former secessionist state of Biafra. The state's population of eight million already has been weakened by war, hunger, tubercu losis and a recent ravage of hepatitis. Here's Apollo timetable CAPE KENNEDY, Fla.

Few Socrecls oppose merger with PC party INDIAN HEAD, Sask. (CP)-Only a handful of Saskatchewan Social Credit Party members are opposed to a merger with the Progressive Conservative Party, Social Credit Leader Lloyd Avram said today. H� said in an interview that once the new party's policies and constitution are made public the dissidents will disappear. One of the problems was that some Social Credit Party members are used to recognizing certain programs under specific labels. Some of the new labels would have to be discarded with the merger. Mr. Avram said he still Is undecided whether to seek the new party leadership at the founding convention scheduled for the end of February in Saskatoon.
