The camp hospital reported receiving eight dead and 43 wounded. Aziza Ahmed, a refugee housewife in her early 30s, said, "We had been expecting something. But for God's sake, what could we do? We have no shelters and no real means of defence. "Shortly before noon, I heard the explosions. I shouted and ran through the house looking for my six children and took them to a trench out back where some of the neighbors already were huddled. There was no room for us. "We dashed for another trench. Again no room. So we ran back into the house and tried to take cover in a corner of a room. The Israeli planes roared overhead. Explosions were shaking the whole camp. I could see from a window. Pair after pair swooped down, fired rockets and disappeared. "One of the rockets finally hit our house and it came down in an avalanche of dust. Only by God's will did we sur- vive." BLASTED TO PIECES Abu Maheib, 40, a blacksmith said. "I rushed with my children to a trench in a yard behind the house. But two of my sons who had been with neighbors were next door. I shouted for them to join us. But they were blasted to pieces before my eyes. They couldn't make it to the trench." When reporters arrived after the planes had gone, they found burning homes and angry residents. Groups of refugees who lost their houses shouted. "Down with Nixon and Kissinger." Prejudice complaint unanswered EDMONTON (CP) Two Yukon Indians who say their people learn to live with race prejudice, say they have waited 37 days for the Alberta Human Rights Commission to answer a race prejudice com- plaint they made. George MacDonald, 25, liaison officer for the Yukon Association of Non-Status In- dians, and Willie Joe, 27, an official of the Yukon Native Brotherhood, filed a com- plaint May 3 after they were refused a request at Budget Rent-A-Car of Edmonton Ltd. for a car rental. The two men, with Calgary oilman Ken Krocker and TransCanada Pipelines Ltd. official Dave McClenaghan witnessed a remark by a Budget employee which led to their complaint. "I don't think it had a.nything to do with our Mr. MacDonald said. "It's something I think a lot of Indian people have learned to live with." Mr. MacDonald said white customers were allowed to rent cars within moments after they were refused. He said the pair finally rented a car at Tiiden Rent-A- Car service in downtown Ed- monton but they had to pay twice the deposit that had been quoted to a white member of their party by a Tiiden counter employee at the Industrial Airport. Officials from Budget and Tiiden said they have no policy regarding renting to natives, and no policy regarding deposits from natives. Vincent A. Cooney, acting chairman of the Human Rights Commission said the case would be on the agenda of a July 2 meeting.

(CP) The first results of a report which indicates there is a teacher shortage in Saskatchewan were released here by L. A. Byrnes, presi- dent of the Saskatchewan School Trustees Association. Mr. Byrnes said 56 of 57 school superintendents en- countered a tight supply of suitable applicants when recruiting teachers for the 1974-75 school year. He said the shortage was due to increased emigration of teachers to other provinces, changes in superannuation provisions and an inadequate number of graduates in key areas of instruction. There were insufficient teachers for music. French, industrial arts, home economics, special education, kindergarten and business education. He said the teacher surplus has not existed for several years and the recruiting problem is most acute in rural Saskatchewan.
