McKee, Commander-in-chief._______ Catastrophe faces East Pakistan Bj R. 3. ANDERSON COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CP) In the next dec- ade, says the top Canadian in North American Air Defence Command, Canada and the United States have to get to- gether on many major issues and continental defence is one of them. It sometimes is said here in NORAD Ca- Canada pays the telephone bill for the vast, complex warning system that guards North America against air attack. If that's so, Lt.- Gen. Edwin M. Reyno feels it is a stiff bill and now is not the time to change the fate structure. Of the million annual cost of maintaining the far- Hung network of men, air fleets and surveillance sys- tems, Canada pays mil- lion. That's eight per cent of the total budget for defence and 1.8 cents a day for every Canadian. The U.S. share is about three per- cent of the de- fence budge'.. Reyno, NORAD deputy commander-m-chief, says the Canadian contribution is not "Canada doesn't need to do anything more in NORAD to be making an effective contri- he says. "We're making an effective contribution right now. We have only million a year to spend on defence and we've got a tortuous group of priorities against which to apply this. Personnel expen- ses now are running 71 per cent of that figure. We ha- ven't much left." TOO RICH FOR US The general's comments In an interview were given in re- sponse to questions about suggestions in recent months that Canada should' partici- pate in the U.S. aerospace program. Canadian business benefit- ted when the million DEW (Distant Early Warn- ing) Line was being built by the U.S. across the Arctic. Supplies and equipment were carried north in Canadian ships and aircraft and Cana- dian industry handled some contracts. The DEW Line, oper- ated by Canada, is worth 530 million a year to Canadian business though the line itself will gradually lose some of its strategic importance as the bomber threat diminishes. The intercontinental ballistic missile, striking through space, will be the No. 1 threat to North America by 1980. Reyno disagrees with these suggestions about the aero- space program. With only 22 million people, Canada cannot afford it, he said. Vice chief of defence staff In Ottawa before being posted here in September, Reyno views continental de- fence as only one of many problems to be solved by Can- ada and the United States. He sees Canadian participation as a national resource, with a value to be placed upon it on a give-and-take basis at the bargaining table. Canada's renewal for five years in'1968 of its NORAD agreement with the U.S. in- cluded a caveat that it would not be involved in Safeguard, the U.S. anti-ballistic missile program. The 70-odd Canadians here, working with their American counterparts, do not deal in aerospace defence. Reyno agrees with the otn cial Canadian position, not for defence reasons, which are valid enough, but lor eco- nomic reasons." He prefers to approach con- tinental defence ffom another one of many prob- lems the U.S. and Canada must face up to. He outlined some of the is- sues: "They've got to solve the pollution problem together. They've got to solve the pow- er-grid problem together. "They've got to solve the fact that the Americans want a lot of natural gas from us and we don't want to sell them very much. We want to sell them a bag of oil and they don't want any oil. And so on. "These things have to be re- solved in the next 10 years. "During that 10-year period the Americans are going to be getting shorter and shorter and shorter In about Xi criti- cal materials, all of which in the ground in Canada. Reyno foresaw "some Mro bargaining around bv Canadian authorities. might play t'own tle on defence and the Ameri- cans might play a little bit up.

By ARTHUR L. GAVSHON WASHINGTON (AP) A World Bank mission says Presi- dent Agha Mohammed Yahya Khan must rush food to East Pakistan to head off catastrophe of big-seale starvation and a new exodus to India. In a secret report, the 10-man mission urges the military ruler of that South Asian land to re- a first step-some of his West Pakistani troops who stand accused of terrorizing the population. The group of foreign experts says these are among minimum remedial measures needed East Pakistan is to emerge from chaos.

GIVEN TO AP The report of the World Bank mission, circulated to top execu- tives only, was made available to The Associated Press by qualified authorities.

Some estimates say more than already have died in the Pakistan civil war. Be- tween six million and seven mil- lion have fled into India. The mission said in its report: "In setting the goals for nor- malization the first objective must obviously be to avoid a catastrophe-large-scale hunger and starvation within East Pak- istan and further massive move- ment of people out of the prov- ince into India. "The second objective must be to reactivate the economy on a comprehensive and sustaina- ble basis. Later the mission added that even if appropriate measures are introduced immediately to feed the people, "it may al- ready be too late to prevent starvation in all areas of the province." Pincher residents have a lot to learn PINCHER CREEK (Special) Students of Matthew Halton High School had the project re- cently of preparing a ques- tionnaire for residents of Pin- cher Creek and District. One section of the questionnaire concerned Indians. This sec- tion was prepared by Cliff Todd, Marvin and Donald Vandezande. Questions posed included: are Indians being discrimi- nated against in the obtaining of employment, 151 yes, 121 no. It would appear that people must have a reasonable stand- ard of living in order to con- tribute to society. More people said yes than no to such ques tions as: should Indians have equal drinking rights? Shoulc Indian students attend schoo In Pincher Creek? Are Indians being treated fairly by the gov- ernment? Does the Napi friendship Association assist the Indian? Should the Reserve >e abolished? In summing up the answers ,o the questionnaire, Peter Cresswell, director of the Napi Friendship Association felt that Pincher Creek and area have a lot to learn about their Indian neighbors on the Peigan Reserve. He felt that in modern day western living it is a young community, experi- encing many internal problems in its development, but it will have to be recognized and ac- cepted. The future can only hold bit terness if the surrounding com- munities remain inflexible and intolerant toward the Indian people.
