Tho death toll from the week-long storm stood at 117 today and tens of thousands remained homeless. As I lie rivers returned to (heir banks, thousands returned to their homes and businesses to clear away silt with shovels and brooms. And there was a break in the crisis that began when the storm named Agnes slammed across the Florida const on her disastrous course a week ago.

His goal is to break an even split deadlock In the lower house of parliament. He has been unable to get action on critical issues, particularly the federal budget. In a statement to the council of his Social Democratic party, Brandt confirmed the Novem- ber election call first made pub- lic by Foreign Minister Walter Scheel to reporters. Scheel is chairman of the small but piv- Russell opens new hospital otal Free Democrats In coalition with Brandt's Socialists. There was no immediate word on exactly when the balloting would take place although there was speculation it would be early in November. Helmut Schmidt, defence min- ister and Brandt's deputy as So- cialist party chairman, told re- porters the party council had unanimously endorsed Brandt's call for a November vole. Schmidt said he assumed that the chancellor would move for a no-confidence vole on the way to an early election. He rejected I he idea that Brandt would re sign. If a no-confidence motion failed to give Brandt a major ity, then the parliament would be dissolved. The opposition Christian Dem ocrats have been after Brand either to resign or Implement a no-confidence motion on th MONTREAL (CP) Police re holding a man on a coro- r's warrant in connectior th a shooting in a west-em staurant early Sunday in lich four men died.

(CP) The radical Waffle wing of the On- tario New Democratic Party was dealt a staggering blow during the weekend, but its leaders maintain the fight is far from over. The NDP's provincial council meeting here voted solidly Sat- urday in favor of expelling the Yaffle. However, Jamex Laxer, Wal- fle leader, Indicated his group will not go down without a truggle, saying the Waffle Is 'absolutely determined to con- inue as a current socialist opin- on in Canada." About 200 Waffle members met to discuss strategy after he boom was lowered at the council meeting. They drew up a resolution, a spokesman said later, that called for: alien that the group will not disband despite the fact the council vole has been taken by some to mean the Waffle "no longer Ontario-wide Waffle con- vention will be held on or before Aug. 15 to determine if the fle will abandon ils activities and stay within the party or maintain itself as a group and suit the NDP. They had earlier voted not to discuss a compromise proposal that would have granted the Waffle associate status of exist- ence within the party under a set of strict idea which the Wafflers had earlier said they would accept. Mr. Laxer termed the adopted resolution an "enormous ambi- guity." The resolution said "the present struclure and behavior of the Waffle cannot continue" and public activities should be limited. "Let's have clarity on what the meaning of the resolution he said. presidential aide promised it A spokesman for fhe Pennsyl- would be forthcoming. The pledge came after the governors of five stales and a representative from a sixth met In Harrisburg, Pa., Sunday with George A.

While most of the flood threa was past, watches were stil kept in several areas, Including Petersburg, Va., where the Ap- pomattox River was not ex peeled to crest until tonight and Almond, N.Y., threatened by a 14-mile-long artificial lake of rainwater behind a highway embankment. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! way to breaking a 248-to-24 deadlock In the Bundestag, th lower house. In his statement Brandt sai he could not reach agreemen with the opposition, causing hin to act on his own. He" rejecle opposition criticism that h could no longer govern. RENEW COALITION Schmidt said that the Soci Democrats would seek a r newed coalition with the Free Democrats after the election. The deadlock with the Chrl tlan Democrats resulted from defections from the government parties over Brandt's treaties with Moscow and Warsaw that recognized German wartime territorial losses. Brandt came here by train, the first chancellor to cross by land through East Germany to isolated West Berlin where he launched his career as mayor for a decade. Before the recent Berlin agreement, the chancel- lors had to travel to Berlin by plane because the Communist East Germans protesled a chan- cellor's presence in Berlin. In Bonn, opposition leader Rainer Barzel said he welcomed Brandt's call for new elections. He asserted Ihe chancellor fi- nally decided to face the conse- quences of what he called the failure of Ihe Brandt govern- ment. Barzel said he was confi- dent the electorate would give his party a mandale to govern. Search continues for skyjacker PERU, Inrl.
