Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE 6ETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, July 4, 1973 Pacific islands seek compensation SAIPAN, Mariana Islands (Reuter) Twenty-eight years late, western Pacific islands devastated by Second World War battles between United States and Japanese forces now have an opportunity to seek compensation for their losses. The result has been a revival of memories of the heavy loss of life, severe deprivation and the horrors of aerial and naval bombardment that reduced some of the tiny, idyllic islands to piles of rubble. The names are familiar to military men and Second World War Kwajalein, Saipan, Eniwetok, Tinian and Truk. The islands, now part of the U.S.-adrainistered United Na- tions rust Territory of the Pa- c i f i c, were systematically turned into fortresses by the Japanese invaders. Then they were methodically destroyed by U.S. planes and guns. Four years ago Japan and the United States finally concluded an agreement to accept som small responsibility for the damage inflicted on the regioi known as Micronesia. The U.S. Congress in 1971 also provided some million ti meet so-called "post secure arising after the hostil ities ended but before the U.S military occupation ended in 1971.

Since late last year teams have been travelling through the isbnds to explain the proce- dures and help islanders file their claims. The Micrpnesian claims com mission, with headquarters on Saipan, is investigating eacl claim to decide a fair settle- ment. By the end of 1976 the process is expected to be com pleted. There is resentment, how- ever, among local people at being kept waiting so long for recognition of their suffering and losses, particularly by Ja- pan, whose contribution is so small and includes no money. One critic is Susumu Aizawa, a magistrate on the island of Tol in the huge Truk where more than 50 Japanese ships lie as a result of U.S. air raids. Aizawa has written an open letter to President Nixon and Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka to try to empha- size in human terms what can- not be explained in bureau- cratic forms. "The people of Micronesia were in no way responsible for the devastation and he wrote, "yet (we) suffered far more from the hostilities of your governments than did your own nations.

S.M-L. i By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Re- marks that secretaries get' tiled of hearing: "If anybody calls me while I'm in the washroom, tell them I'm in conference." "The trouble with all secre- taries is that they are secretly in love with their bosses." "Margie Lightly, three other secretaries have mar- ried since you started working here, and you're still single. Are you losing your sex ap- "I'm no whiz at spelling myself Margie, but I think you are putting too many k's in the word accommodate." "This is the second time you've come to work this week wearing a pants suit. I, want you to understand clearly, young lady, that Fm the one who wears the pants in this office." "If you ever have to take dictation from the senior vice-president, Margie, be sure to leave the door open. Then be can't corner you." "The pet dog of one of our biggest clients just died. Do you think I need to get in touch with him personally, or do you think a simple tele- gram of condolence wQl do? The trouble is I can't remem- ber what the mutt's name was." "li my wife calls, tell her I'm in conference. If she calls back, tell her I'm in another conference. If she calls a third time, put her on my line." "Why should we go to the zoo on Sunday, Margie, when we've been working in a white collar jungle all "I'm trying to call on as many prospects as I can today, young lady. There's a bottle of scotch In it for you if you get me in to see" your boss before 10 o'clock." "I don't know anything about her boss, but he can't be much of a leg man. If be was, she wouldn't have her job." "You must have got to work late, Margie. When I breezed in at about a.m., the morning coffee you put on my desk was still hot." "If someone calls and asks for me by my first name, tefl him I'm in conference. He's probably a bill collector. All my bin collectors now think they know me well enough to call me by my first name." "I see the third vice-presi- dent has a new rug in his of- fice, Margie. See if you can't push through an order for a new rug for this some new drapes as well. If we don't throw our weight around now and then, they'll forget we're alive." "I'm sneaking off for tle golf, Margie, Ji anybody but God calls me, I'm in con- you don't know where."
