Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ TH1 WTHBRIDOI HiKAlD Cholera deaths climb NEW DELHI, India (Reuter) A health ministry spokesman said Friday there had been a sudden upsurge in cholera cases among East Pakistani refugees in West Bengal. He said the epidemic seemed to have been contained by the end of last month. There were only 59 cholera deaths Wednes- day and 352 reported new cases of the disease. But Thursday there were new cases and 322 victims died. The spokesman said the offi rial figures referred only to cholera victjns admitted to hos- pitals and health centres. It was impossible to tell how many deaths occurred outside, but a top health ministry civil servant said last month that for every officially recorded death there was probably another which went unrecorded. The spokesman said that until Thursday, there had been officially recorded deaths since the cholera epidemic began to ravage refugees in late May. Nation assured of wheat sales TOKYO (AP) Communist China has assured Canada that "it would continue to consider Canada first as a source of wheat as import needs the official New China News Agency reported today. In a broadcast monitored here, the sources said the assur- ance was given in a commu- nique on the visit to China of the Canadian economic mission led by Trade Minister Jean- Luc Pepta. The communique said China and Canada agreed to expand trade, economic and other rela- tions as "both countries shared the desire to build the above mentioned relationships on t h e foundation already established." Stressing the need for further strengthening of trade and eco- nomic relations, the commu- nique said the two sides look forward to more frequent ex- changes of missions in specific fields such as metals and min- e r a 1 s, agricultural products, chemicals, machinery and equipment and power produc- tion.

McNamara wanted cut in bombings NEW YORK (CP) The New York Times, in a seventh article on a secret Pentagon study of the Vietnam war, says in its Saturday issue that the study showed Defence Secretary Rob- ert McNamara sought to reduce the bombing of North Vietnam. The Times says the study also revealed that McNamara in May, 1967, "advocated that the Johnson administration stop trying to guarantee a non-Com- munist Vietnam and be willing to accept a coalition govern- ment in Saigon that included el- ements of the Viet Cong." The study shows' how Mc- Namara's pressure to reduce bombing "17 months before Johnson made that move on March 31, 1968" led to a "deep policy rift" in the administra- tion, The Times says. "The military leaders reacted to Secretary McNamara's pro- posals for a reduction of the air war with what the study calls 'the stiffest kind of condemna- tion' and they 'bombarded' him with the newspaper says in more than six pages de- voted to analysis and partial texts of the Pentagon papers. President Johnson preferrec Che middle ground of pieeemea escalation, says The Times analysis of the papers. The Times says that while McNamara's disillusionment with the war was previously re- ported, the Pentagon study "fully documents" it for the first time.

Ronning gives his views CAMROSE, Alta. (CP) A ormer Canadian diplomat said Friday a high-ranking United States government official gave Janada the erroneous impres- ion in June, 1966, that his coun- ly would not resume bombing f North Vietnam "for the time being." But the U.S. did resume the sombing a little more than a week later, said Chester Ron- ning, a former diplomat' men- ioned in the secret Pentagon >apers. The papers said Mr. Ron- ing's trip to Hanoi delayed the bombing of North Vietnam's oil storage facilities by 19 days. Speaking in an interview, Mr. Ronning also said the United States rejected the offer from North Vietnam that he brought back from his first mission even though the offer contained only wo stipulations. North Viet- nam's previous position had contained four stipulations.

When the British airline first announced youth fares between Canada, U.S. and Britain, they TOre available only to youths Between 15 and 25 inclusive.

Effective immediately, the fare of round-trip in Cana- dian funds between Montreal and Britain will remain un- changed. During low seasons the fare will be round-trip. However, the spokesman said, the new directive will require that bookings be confirmed within seven days of flight de- partures.
