Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thunday, Junt 7, 1973 THI UTHBRIOCE HERALD 23 Mali unload big grain cargo TIMBUKTU, Mali (AP) Howie and his "desert rats' brought the big United States I Air Force C-130 cargo plane to j a smooth halt in front of the sandswept little airport at Tim- buktu. The rear door of the aircraft opened and a score of waiting Malians unloaded the cargo of 15 tons of emergency food grain in 20 minutes, carrying the heavy bags on their heads to a waiting truck. It was just one of dozens of missions in a U.S. airlift of food to near-starving people in flung outposts of Malis barren, drought-stricken interior. Remote and legendary Tim- buktu, often a synonym for the end of the world, has become a major distribution point for re- lief food to thousands struck by the four-year-old dry spell. Form stock trade group TORONTO (CP) Canada's major stock exchanges are forming a joint committee to develop a Canada-wide stock trading system, J. Pearce Bun- ting, Toronto Stock Exchange chairman, said yesterday at the exchange's annual governors' dinner. A tri-exchange committee in- volving Toronto, the Montreal and Vancouver Stock Ex- changes was agreed upon last month in Vancouver by sub- committees. Mr. Bunting said approval of the project by the board of the three exchanges is expected to be a formality. The drought has hit six sub- Saharan countries in West Af- rica, ranging from Mauritania and Senegal on the Atlantic through landlocked Mali, Upper Volta, Niger and Chad. It has destroyed vast acres of crops, wiped out millions of cattle and, say United Nations officials, could bring death to some six million Africans through famine. Mall, one of the worst-off countries in the region, has be- come the target of a major re- lief effort. Two U.S. C-130s are making daily sorties. They will cany about l.COO tons of the grain pouring into the country from the United States, Canada, France, West Germany, China, the European Economic Com- munity and other sources. The Soviet Union and West Germany have completed sim- ilar airlifts in Mali. Mali, a land of subsistence farmers, produces some tons of grain in a good year. Stars were wrong NEW YORK (Reuter) Four men, including the high priest of a local voodoo cult, were convicted in federal court yesterday on charges of im- porting and distributing mil- lion worth of heroin. U.S. At- torney Robert Morse said the 57-year-old voodoo leader con- sulted the stars, the smoke from incense, chicken heads and other voodoo paraphernalia to determine when and where to receive shipments of heroin. The four were held in bail ranging from million to dollars to await sen- tencing.

(CP) The first step in setting up a Cana- dian Academy of Science was announced at Queen's Univer- sity today when Dr. J. H. Chap- man, president of the science section of the Royal Society of Canada, called for an enhanced role for one of Canada's oldest and most distinguished organ- izations. Addressing memoers of the society, Dr. Chapman, assistant deputy minister of the federal department of communications, said: "The Royal Society of Canada and its members are personally Spring seeding near end (CP) Prairie farmers nearly have finished spring seeding but planting in and financially willing to serve Canada more actively as an academy through its multi-dis- ciplinary symposia, through a more active international role, through more frequent ex- changes with academies of other countries.'" Dr. Chapmans address was seen as confirmation of growing unease and mounting debate among prominent Canadian sci- entists over the manner in which the government obtains information and advice from scientists on matters of vital national concern such as sci- ence, energy and environmental policies. The outgoing president of the society, Dr. J. Tuzo Wilson, writing in the society's news- letter, stated that the govern- ment by its actions admits that alhough the present system of chaining advice on science pol- icy may ssem good, the results are unfortunately poor. "Scientists are exhausted by the number of boards and com- mittees and reports they are re- quired to work on. "The cause of this malaise arises from an unfortunate fail- ure by governments to dis- tinguish between the wisdom of Statistics Canada reported Wednesday. In the second of a series of six reports on crcp conditions across the country, the statis- tics bureau confirmed recent slatemonts by Agriculture Min- ister Eugene Whelan that crop prospects outside the Prairie grain belt are "not that rosy." Recent general rains through- out Manitoba and the eastern two-thirds of Saskatchewan, along with showers in several Alberta areas, will speed crop development. Dry patches remain, however, in western Saskatchewan and eastern Alberta. Grasshoppers, expected to be a major threat this year, are hatching in many parts of Manitoba -and south- west Saskatchewan. In British Columbia, the bu- reau said, low temperatures and rain levels have retarded crop growth, but leaf-vegetable harvest is in full swing. The strawbcny harvest will begin next week and the alfalfa and hay crops now are being cut. ing to ceives.

CSA president Bill Broad Wednesday called the vote at this week's monthly meeting of the 600-member branch of the association not representative of the branch and the work "of some of those malcontents."
