Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 4, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 BENT BY CYCLONE WINDS A lamp post in the town of Bhadrak forms an arch after It was bent by winds in a cyclone (hat hit ihe Bengal coast cf Indioi last weekend. Bhadrak is in the Orissa state, one of the hard- est hit areas of the storm, where families were fear- ed to have perished. Life is hell Tragic scenes in cyclone area Santosh Basak of The As- sociated Press was one of the first newspaper men to visit the coast of Orissa slate after it was devastated last weekend by a cyclone and tidal wave. In the fol- lowing story lie writes of the damage to a village lie vis- ited. By SANTOSII BASAK BHADRAK India (.AP) In the best of times, life is not prosperous in this small farm- ing town on the coastal plain MITCHELL SHARP Test breaks law OTTAWA (CP1 External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp .says his offhand opinion is that the Uniled States is breaking the law of the sea by establish- ing a 50-mile control zone around the nuclear test site of Ainchitka Island. In reply to Commons ques- tions Wednesday from R, G. U Fairweather Mr. Sharp said he un- derstands there will be a re- striction of innocent passage within that iJO-mile he didn't know officially whether this contravened the law of the sea, his offhand opin- ion was that it did. Garlicr, Environment Minis- ter Jack Davis had said he un- derstood a National Research Council plane which is in Alaska ready to monitor any radioac- tivity from the test would he accorded the same privileges as U.S. research piancs. The u n d c r g r o u n d test is scheduled for 5 p.m. EST Satur- day. Gerald W. Baldwin Peace River asked whether the govern m e n t protest planned atmospheric nuclear te.sls by France. FKKNCII NOTIl'IKI) Mr. Sharp said the resolution passed Oct. lf> by Itic Commons opposing all tests was delivered to the French government. James A. John's East referring lo the U.S. control around Amchilka, asked whether the government would impose a similar control on Can- ada's East Coast lo conserve fish stocks. In that rosrx'ct, said Mr. Sharp, Canada has taken more effective action that any other country. He also said Canada has taken the lead in Ihe Uniled Nations in opposing nuclear lest ing. Ed Broadbent (N D P -0 s h- awa-Wbitby) asked Prime Min- ister Trudeau whelhcr his signa- lure was among those cf oilier MPs petitioning Washinglon lo slop the test. Mr. Trudeau said only that he still believed Ihe best method of collective aclion is in the form of a Commons resolution which had ixx-n passed with his sup- port. about 20 miles from the Bay of Bengal. Today it is hell. Last Friday afternoon, storm clouds moved hi from the coast. By Monday, a cyclone and the wash of a tidal wave had swept over Bhadrak and most of the coastal region of the east-cen- tral state of Orissa. The latest official estimate of deaths is in the state, but this is expected to rise much higher when reports are re- ceived from areas that are still isolated. Because Bhadrak is not on the coast, it escaped the brunt of the tidal wave, and only 20 of its people are known to have died. But the destruction of their mud and bamboo huts and the crop loss on the surrounding rice farms is a major tragedy for these farm laborers with lit- tle or no money and no prospect of getting any. WINDS RISE Sambhu Shall, owner of a small business, said that as Uie storm clouds built up Friday afternoon, the winds got stronger and stronger. "Tht winds were so strong at one point that it was impossible for anyone to stand up without grabbing or holding on to some- thing. By evening, tree tops were touching the ground and the roofs of many houses had blown away." People frantically threw straw anything they could get their hands to the roofs of their houses in an attempt to keep them from being blown away. "But nothing was of much Shau said. "People were so frightened. Women and chil- dren crying. It seemed as though that night the whole ttnvn was crying." Sitala Roy, a middle-aged woman who came to a make- shift stand to buy some rice for her family, said the winds swept away her small house "in only a few minutes." "Then, after the cyclone came, the flood waters came and swept away everything that was left of my the woman added, sobbing. The winds swept rivers of raging water through Bhadrak's streets. Trees are strewn about like matchsticks. ,1971 Nobel prize listed STOCKHOLM (AP) The 1971 Nobel Prize Earl W. Suth- erland, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn., for his studies of hormones.
