But by some freak of terrain enough of the town's tiny airstrip was spared from avalanches that hurtled down the 18.000-foot Andes to leave it still usable by small aircraft. 'A quarter ton ol sleeping bags, blankets and food ra- tions was packed in plastic- wrapped survival kits and sta- pled into 12 large crates. The back bay of the plane lifted' open as Anta came into view and the crates were shoved out, two at a time, as the Her- cules made six passes over the runway. A few miles further up the canyon was Yungay, which used to be home for some persons. All that could be seen of it were the tops of foui- palm trees where the town square had been and a statue of Christ, with arms outstretched, which marked the hilltop cemetery. A slide of rocks and mud two to three miles wide had buried Yungay. Only about residents are believed to have survived.

More than 200 delegates at- tending the party's western pol- icy conference approved resolu- tions winch will be presented to the party's national policy con- ference in Ottawa in November. The resolution on abortion at- tracted the longest debate dur- ing the second day of the con- ference which ends today. It urged that abortion should not be a criminal offence for any reason, when performed by a qualified doctor. It was the only resolution which, when passed, was applauded. The westerners also urged Parliament to replace, when possible, existing poverty pro- grams through legislation for a guaranteed basic income pro- gram administered on the basis of a negative income tax. They called for an income level at least as high as the rec- ognized poverty level in Canada and one that will provide an in- entive to the working poor.

Free inter-provincial move- ment of feed grains between Prairie provinces also was sup- ported. Such movement now is illegal. The conference supported a Manitoba resolution asking the government to inject any un- used funds from the federal grain acreage reduction pro- gram into the western economy.
