2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIO Wcdneidoy, November 10, 1970 stipplses DACCA (CP) Swiss nnd Gorman aircraft ferried in tons of relict supplies today and President Nixon allocated million to the international re- habilitation effort for survivors of the cyclone and tidal waves that inundated a large area of East Pakistan six days ago. China will donate million worth of aid, the New China news agency reported. It said one-third of the donation would be in cash while the rest would be in relief supplies. The number of dead remained Incalculable. The govcnmoni confirmed but unofficia' estimates were from to the Pakistani relief commissioner, A. M. Anisuzza man, said ho could neither chal- lenge nor confirm them. Criticism mounted in Dacca that not enough is being done to help save hundreds of thousands of survivors.

This woman and others have nothing to eat except some rotten rice. paper Horning News said: "This is an unpanilielled na- tional disaster ancf should, be treated as such.... At least let us not fail the survivors." The Pakistan Observer, an in- dependent daily owned by for- mer foreign minister Hamidul Huq Cboudhury, claimed "relief goods arriving from foreign countries remain dumped in Dacca as no carrier is available to airdrop them.. Therefore, relief has not reached thousands of survivors in Use offshore is- lands even six days after the disaster." Dozens of small islands in the Bay of Bengal were still un- touched by relief workers. Sur- vivors told reporters their drinking water came from pools befouled by bodies of human beings and cattle, and their only food was rotting rice kernels they burned before eating to kill the stench. Oificials discounted reports of widespread cholera in the stricken area. "The incidence o? cholera Is insignificant compared to other problems of relief said Dr. Wiley Mosley, chief of epi- demology of the cholera labora- tory run by Pakistan and the Southeast Asia Treaty Organiza- tion. A Boeing 707 from West Ger- many brought in 25 tons of tents, clothing, blankets and medicine, then took off for Tur- key to get another load. Two other German planes with 19 tons of goods were due tonight. Other planes were on their way from the United States, Britain, France, Iran and other countries. Two civilian helicopters from the American aid mission in Nepal were being flown to Dacca, and four cargo helicop- ters were en route. But despite President Agha Mohammed Yahya Khan's pledge to "give all help and re- lief to the only Paki- stani aircraft participating in relief work Tuesday was a heli- copter that Anisuzzaman said had to be grounded for mainte- nance after 14 hours aloft. Two small planes with less than two tons' cargo capacity were scheduled to start dropping sup- plies today. Relief officials conceded the effort was far short of what was needed. Correspondents reported from Barisol, on the mainland to the east of the major impact area (hat survivors surrounded local relief headquarters demanding supplies be dropped in. Students marched through Dacca demanding Hast Paki- stan be declared a calamity area. Anisuzzaman said his most jressing needs to organize sufficient relief program 'are 'helicopters, helicopters and lelicopters." Some people had remarkable escapes. Many of those who lived on Manapura hugged trees as the wind and the waves mer- cilessly thrashed them. The flesh on their chest and stomach was nibbed raw.

The suggestion was contained in a resolution proposed by the County of Lacombe and ap- proved at the association's an- .nual convention. The resolution said: "The sight of old car bodies scattered about our province is a sorry testimony to the inade- quacy of present provisions for dealing with this type of wa'ste which is presently accumulat- ing to the point where it is a public disgrace." Other resolutions approved Tuesday urged that non-return- able bottles be banned and that second-hand school buses be re- painted sold to other own- ers. Confusion, arising from the familiar yellow color of school buses transferred to private use, had led to accidents, a resolution said.

Opposition denounces plans to change public order bill OTTAWA (CP) Oppositioi parties delivered a desk-thump- ing Commons denunciation Tuesday of what spokesmen de scribed as the government's en trenched resistance to sug gested changes in the propose! public order bill. Eldon Woolliams gary North) said that withou some of these changes, the Pub- lic Order (Temporary Mea sures) Act, 1970, would give the government "the same kind o powers as were handed to Adol Hitler." Debate on the public ordei bill is not expected to resumi until next Monday.

Both MPs moved amend ments calling for the creation of such a board. Mr. Lewis's was defeated, Mr. Woolllams's is yet to be voted on. Opposition Leader Eobert Third reading for bottle bylaw CLAHESHOLM proposed bylaw against, the sale of soft drinks in non-re- turnable bottles was given first, second and Biird readings by Claresholm town council Tuesday. In p r o p o s ing the bylaw, Claresholm Mayor Ernie Pat- terson said "I'm very disturb- ed about broken glass bottles which are becoming more fre- quent in the town. "The provincial and federal governments and various or- ganizations are only talking about the problem but are not doing anything about it." ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Denial Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 3J8-4095 The bylaw calls for a maxi- mum fine of for any local retailer selling soft drinks in non-returnable bottles. Council was told many peo pie pickup returnable bottles but leave non-returnable bot ties because there is no profil in them. A Claresholm retail owner said he had gone exclusively to the sale of soft drinks in non- returnable bottles because re- turnable bottles are too much of a nuisance. "If the bylaw comes Mo ef feet, we may have to go to canned pop sales." Another store owner suggest cd they should go after the manufacturer, "It isn't fair to go after the retailer because people can still buy pop in non-returnable bottles outside the town limits."

ALIISU Ph. 327-5763 Stanfield made what many MPs considered an exceptionally im- pressive speech, recommending a similar review procedure. But he was quick to dispel any no- tions that he might vote against the bill because the recommen- dation was rejected. .One cannot possibly jus- tify powers being granted in this bill without some re- course, without providing some right of Mr. Stanfield said as the Commons continued dause-by-clause study of the bill. I say this House would be derelict in its duty in creat- ing the powers set forth without setting up a reasonable source of review." Mr. Stanfield said outside the Commons, however, that he would vote for the bill it reaches third and final reading as he supported it at first and second rending. The Conservative party had Politician Luxd has problem CALGARY (CP) Don Luz- zi, for 12 years an outstanding lineman with Calgary Stani- peders of the Western Football Conference, received the Social Credit nomination to contest the Calgary Buffalo constituency in the nest provincial election. But Mr. Luzzi has a problem is not a Canadian citizen. He does have landed immi- grant status and hopes to be- come a Canadian citizen soon. Under the election act candi- dates must be citizens by nom- ination day, which is set only after an election is called. The Social Credit government is not expected to call a general elec- tion before spring. The constituency Mr. Luzzi would contest was created dur- ing the last year by redistribu- tion. called on the government to produce temporary legislation to replace regulations tinder the War Measures Act and this now had been done. Justice Minister John Turner said the government opposes the creation of review, board because this was the sole re- sponsibility of the Quebec attor- ney-general. The provinces had the consti- tutional right to administer laws whether they were federal or provincial. Metric system aired OTTAWA (CP) The Senate banking committee today com- pie ted consideration _ of tiro weights and measures bill after passing one amendment limit- ing government authority to make arbitrary changes of indi- vidual units of measurement. The bill, which now goes back to the Senate for third reading and then to the Commons, would make the metric system as well as the common foot- pound-gallon system legal tor use in measuring length, weight and capacity. The metric system is a deci- mal measuring system based os the metre, litre and gram, A government policy paper tabled last January called for eventual conversion to tte metric system Paul Beseau, a justice depart- ment lawyer appearing as witness before the committee, suggested an amendment, to make it impossible for the gov- e r n m e n t to make changes within either measurement sys- tem. Under the bill as It stands, tha government could, theoretically, define a foot as 10 inches and still call 3G inches a yard. The amendment specifies that any change in one unit of mea- surement must be matched by corresponding changes in other units of measurement. Since Canada adheres to in- ternationally accepted measure- ment standards, the amendment in effect guarantees that Can- ada cannot depart from those standards without international agreement. In testimony Tuesday, Con- sumer Affairs Minister Ron Basford explained the proposed bill is designed to modernize ex- isting weights and measures legislation, and that unless Can- ada adopted the metric system it would end up as an "island in a metric sea." Japan and many European nations USB the met- ric system.
