Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 - THE IFTHBRIDGE HERAID - Monday, November 1, 1971 India, Pakistan dispute at volcano level-Ghandi LONDON (AP) - "I feci that! I arn sitting on the top of a volcano and I honestly don't know if it is going to erupt." Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, says of India's dispute with Pakistan. She told a meeting Sunday that a swift and negotiated political settlement between t n c government of President Agha Mohammed Yahya Khan and the Bengp'i rebels in East Pakistan is im native, and the millions of Bengali refugees in India must be allowed to return to Cast Pakistan. "I do not think that any people or any government could have shown greater restraint Families moved on slide threat SHIPSHAW, Que. (CP) - An earth movement a mile from the scene of an earlier slide that killed 31 persons brought the evacuation Sunday of 285 residents of this town 115 miles north of Que!>ec City. | Forty-nine families in the east! end of S'nipshaw were evacuated on orders of government geologists. Jean-Marc Robert, a geologist of the Quebec resources department, said the earth movement occurred about 10 days ago and covered an area 125 feet long and 50 feet wide. It was about a mile from the slide at St. Jean Vianney May 4 which swept more than 40 homes into a huge crater and forced abandonment of the town. Mr. Robert said the recent earth movement caused a depression, four centimetres deep, Oct.. 23 and was almost six centimetres deep in all. WARNING GIVEN Gilles Masse, minister of natural resources, warned Thursday that there was a danger of another huge slide in the vicinity of the first disaster. In announcing preliminary re- sults of a geological study by 20 specialists, Mr. Masse said there is a danger that another slide, 10 times worse, could occur only 400 feet from the site of the May 4 slide. The minister, who toured the area Thursday, said results of the study indicate that the landslide was far from being local. The geological fault which caused the May 4 slide constitutes a danger to the entire Sa-guenay River Valley, he said. "We know now that certain geological conditions exist in the area north of the recent slide which are similar to soil conditions in St. Jean Vianney before last May 4," he said. To make the region 100 per cent secure from further disasters, a works project, the size of the massive Manic hydroelectric dam project in northeastern Quebec, would be needed. The government announced last month that it will spend more than $3.5 million to shore up land around the crater, created when 15 million cubic yards of soil thundered Into the nearby Riviere aux Vases. St. Jean Vlanney's more than 1,000 residents were relocated in nearby communities. **M
