Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHIJRIDGE HERALD Thundoy, July 8, 1971 Helpful tips on mosquitoes The scourge of the summer months has returned in full force.

Let us all use it to benefit Jie status of women in our own country." Miss Thorns reviewed sev- eral of the 167 recommendations and heartily cheered one sug- [esting women's associations with political parties should amalgamate with the main body. "Too often the women's or- ganizations have been merely to raise money and serve she said. But she warned delegates that too great an emphasis on poli- tics can bring destruction to in- ternational non-governmental organizations such as their own. MORE ENTER POLITICS More and more people are being drawn into politics. "This is a good thing if we accept as a definition of politics the science of government." Some international organiza- tions were changing their con- stitutions to place greater em- phasis on political matters as well as economic and social questions. "I cannot believe they are doing this with the idea of or- ganizational involvement in po- litical questions, especially when I think of another defini- tion ot the word politics is strife of she said. "The political path is the path to destruction for any interna- tional non-governmental organi- zation such as the IFBPW." Where it is a matter of princi- ple, the federation can sign statements, make representa- tions to governments and the Concern shown for refugees EDMONTON (CP) Con-1 cern for millions of refugees leeing East Pakistan was ex- pressed by Indian and Pakis- ,an delegates to the Interna- .ional Federation of Business and Professional Women's con- fess Monday. But the two expressed diver- gent views on causes, concerns and solutions to the civil con- 'lict which has forced 6.7 mil- ion to flee and left more than dead. Abha Maiti of India, former minister of refugee relief in the nearest Indian state of West Bengal and a member of In- dia's parliament, said the world powers must put pressure on jie Pakistan military to return the power to the elected repre- sentatives of East Pakistan. The Awami League, led by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, won a majority victory in East Pakis- tan earlier this year on a plat- form of autonomy for the prov- ince, she said in a prepared statement.

"Nearly 500.000 peo- ple were killed in the first sev- en days of military action." The resultant continuing exo- dus from East Bengal cannot be tolerated much longer by the Indian government.

Ahmed, the dele- gate from Pakistan, it, director of audit for defence services. She left her home in East Pak- istan for West Pakistan follow- ing the election. "I don't see any alternative to what the army has she said in an interview. Stu- dent radicals had a strong in- fluence, and after the elections many of the population were scared of what had happened. Many refugees would return but are being stopped by the Indian government, which wants to see East Pakistan be- come a separate state. "Pakistan is fighting for its very and the world is doing great harm to the coun- try by stopping developm e n t. aid during the civil conflict.

The organization sponsors a non political United Nations school program in Israel. United Nations and take action on matters of all kinds, Miss Thorns said. "Where it is a matter of sup- porting one nation or a group of nations against the action of an- other nation or group of nations, we do not sign despite the fact that as individuals we may be in sympathy." She warned that the federa- tion, which represents 49 coun- tries, must not become a shadow of any world govern- ment organization. "Our links with member countries have been forged in the fire of high idealism, tem- pered with trust. We can main- tain a dialogue, we can go on working when national and in- ternational politicians have given up." In her report as president, Miss Thorns also stressed the growing role of women in the national economy and their in- creasing participation in eco- nomic life. "Despite the considerable progress made in improving the status of women, however, there are too few women holding poli- cy-making positions or posts of responsibility at all levels in the majority of countries and in the international community as a whole.
