Proceeds to future Ice Facilities in Lethbridge Police clear campus of tent citv TORONTO (CP) Twenty- one persons. 11 of them with To- ronto addresses, were released on bail each Sunday after several skirmishes with police evicting 200 campers from the grounds of the University of To- ronto. John Sword, acting president of the university, asked police to evict the campers at a.m. By S a.m., all had left peacefully. However, skirmishes devel- oped later when some of the campers attempted to cross the grounds. Three police received minor injuries, one when struck on the head with a stone. Police laid 27 charges, includ- ing eight, for possession of dan- gerous weapons and seven for assaulting police. The campers had refused to leave despite an injunction which the university obtained Friday from the Ontario Su- preme Court. University officials had al- lowed the campers, many of them transients, to camp on the grounds all last week. When a new site was provided at the former Mercer Reforma- tory grounds, about three miles snnlhwest of the University, by Uie Ontario government, the campers declined the offer. The university then sought the injunction Indian officials had expected the monsoon rains to stop the tide of refugees, officially esti- mated at seven million, but their hopes have disappeared. A new, seemingly endless wave of refugees is entering India, this time from interior regions of East miles and 10 days walking dis- tance. They had not been caught in the army crackdown that first began March 25, they said, but now the army is burn- ing their homes and lulling their kin. On one recent day, at least refugees crossed into India in three hours. Most were Hindu women and children who said their husbands and fathers were either killed or missing. From the border, the refugees walked one mile and then sat down in a deserted field to spend the night. Anxious to be clean, the women spread out their long saris to dry and gave their children baths in nearby ponds. FIND NO ROOM When the refugees woke up, they found there was little or no room for them here either. "The problem is lo get them some free space, and we don't have said K. K. Naskar, chief executive officer in the Bongaon subdivision which has one of the most densely popu- lated, refugee communities. Before tile East Pakistan con- flict began, Bongaon had a pop- ulation of 400.000. Now it is nearly one million. There are no immigration for- malities as the refugees file into India. Most come only with a few bundles of clothes they cany on their heads and a lan- tern for light in the evenings. The more prosperous cross in bullock carts. Those refugees who don't find room in the 29 relief camps in Bongaon trek toward Calcutta, 70 miles away, and the main road leading to the city is lined with struggling fmilies. LOCALS RESENT THEM Refugees in Bongaon have begun to face a new resentment from the local popu- lation that they already outnum- ber. Everything has a limit, said Naskar. 'Our people were friendly initially, but now they are changing." The biggest problem lor the refugees is just to survive. A cholera epidemic that claimed at least lives in June has been brought under control, say Indian officials. But in Bongaon, 25 to 30 persons still die from the disease daily, Naskar said. Although the Pakistan govern- ment claims that about 10.000 refugees have returned to East Pakistan, local officials deny that any have gone back. "I would be the happiest man alive if they started said Naskar, "but they aren't-" for the presidency. Congressional elections are to be Iield next month and the presidential election in October.

He was interviewed after an elecl'on address at An Nhon, in which he rejected the idea of a coa'ition government with the Viet Cong. In another development, Ky defended Thieu, his bitter politi- cal enemy, against a U.S. broadcaster's charge that the president is using profits from drugs to finance his campaign for re-election. "If he ever wanted money for his election campaign, he would have thousands of ways of mak- ing Ky said of the president "Why should he get involved in things like In a statement Saturday, Thieu's office called the rep.rt by NBC correspondent Phil Brady a slander. Oil spill control system planned EDMONTON (CP) Imperi- al Oil Ltd. has applied to the provincial department of the environment to construct an oil spill control system at its refin- ery just east of here. The company plans to con- struct a dam en a ravine which runs into the North Saskatchew- an River. A company spokesman said the dam would enable Imperial Oil to head off any major spill and prevent it from reach- ing the river.
