SUMNV HIGH FORE-CAST TUESDAY 45 The Letltktdge Herald LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1971 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO SECTIONS 20 PAGES U11C1101VC 7-1 LCU Cup of Milk gord Your help is needed once again fl-IE LETHBRIDGE HERALD believes south AJbertans want to help and will help the refugees from East Bengal. That's why The Herald's Cup of Milk Fund has a this year. This tragedy has reached such enormous proportions it is beyond comprehension. We read about it, we hear about it. But it's so big we can't grasp it. For sheer magnitude of suffering, the problem of millions of refugees from East Pakistan, hungry and unwanted, dying and praying for delivery from their tor- mented existence, rivals any of the most hor- rendous tragedies of modern times. Let's not 117 to comprehend it. Let's not try to solve it. Let's not reason about it or even worry about it. Let's do something about it, together, as a family of south Alberta com- munities. Together we can help. Together, with faith, we can justify our existence in this Al- berta of plenty. The Herald, with I Jr. Lotta Hitschman- ova's kind assistance, will direct this year's Cup of Milk Fund for Ihe Unitarian Service Committee. When the campaign is over, every cent collected will go to 50 Sparks Street, Ottawa, and every donor will be issued a receipt. No effort spared Human nature being what it is, The Herald will spare no effort to reach this year's goal. We're going to plead, beg, lecture, preach and demand contributions. We're going to put our photographers and reporters to work taking pictures and writing stories about the wonderful children who come through every year with nickels and dimes for the hungry t'ois in far-away India. Those nickels and dimes pour in to form Ihc very foundation of this heart-warming cam- paign. Wilhotii These pennies their prayers would go tiranswcrpd. Once Ihe spirit, of this campaign spreads. nr.Miing can stop if. What, is il nhotil the Cup of Milk Fund that excludes even the. thought of failure? What is it that makes this appeal so strong and un- deniable? Firslly, it's children helping chil- dren: secondly, we believe in it. Everyone believes in it. You can take the most hard-bitten, cynical, bored-with-life, don't-give-a-damn reporter and talk to him about the Cup of Mill; Fund and he'll stick his hand in his pocket and pull out a dollar bill. Perhaps this is because we write and read about bad news 365 days a year here at The Herald. The Cup of Milk Fund winds up the year like a single lighted candle in a dark for hope. Perhaps it's because people want tn help, if they're given a little direction. Perhaps it's because India and all that suffering is so far away and it's all so vague and unreal and The Herald's Cup of Milk Fund is something we can grasp and work with. Maybe it's something bigger than all of us, something we can't really put into words. Whatever it is. we're happy to be a small part of this friendly, down-to-earth campaign. It will set things just a little bit straighter and make things just a little bit brighter in this somewhat terrifying world we live in. Deep, deep down in our hearts we know, somehow, that isn't enough. Whatever we give, it can never be enough. We know Ihe problem will be there again next year and Ihe year after that. The world is filled with suffering. It's also filled with people who overcome suffering. And because the people in this part of the world have something, call it bigness of soul, or strength lo help the weak, or the will to really come through when the clouds are dark- est, that the Cup of Milk Fund will succeed.

The eoast guard said 94 survi- vors drifted ashore or were res- cued. Sixteen bodies were re- covered, and the coast guard said an estimated 50 to 90 per- sons were trapped inside the hull of Bclhoven II, which sank on a run from Palom- pon, on Lcyte, to Bogo. on Cebu.

The provincial government will discuss the national board's recommendations with the Alberta (Energy Resources Conservation Board to "deter- mine if the national board has seriously underestimated the potential of natural gas reserves outside Alberta." KIi IIUPOKT Meanwhile, an Alberta Social Credit league committee Sat- urday praised the National Energy Board for its concern to ensure that Canada has an ample supply of natural gas over the next 25 years. The three-man committee on mines and minerals told dele- gates to the league's annual convention that it accepts the statistical basis for the board's decision "because we know its thoroughness in this field."

Postmaster General .loan- Pierre Cote has threatened ei- ther court action or internal dis- ciplinary measures against car- riers in parts of Ontario and the Maritimes who stayed off work in sporadic actions last week. Mr. Cote said Friday that there could be a range of disci- plinary measures i n c 1 u d n g prosecutions "or other court ac- tions to recover the damages." Neither the public nof the dep-artment can tolerate such illegal iterruptions of the mail." Roger Deearie, letter carriers president, said last Thursday that the government is out to "bust tlie union" and Ihc car- riers intend to fight back. The union officers would meet here today to decide on further acton, he said, and promised that whatever steps that union decided on would be fighting steps. At issue in the dispute is the hiring of casual workers by the post office when a carrier's walk is unmanned because of illness or vacation. The union says a contract clause stipulates that such work must be offered on an overtime basis to union men first. Only if it cannot be covered in this way is the government free to put a casual worker on the walk, the union says. Mr. Cote says the service could not function without cas- -ua] labor. Avoiding it entirely would require hiring about an- other 1.000 full-time workers and wculd add up to million annually lo post office costs. that we know we Uke the per- son."

OTTAWA (CP) Another purported cabinet cerning allocation of money for Indian programs this cropped up during the weekend and is expected lo spark Com- ment questions this President Harold Cardinal of the Inc'ian Association of Al- berta took what hs described as an official cabinet document to an intei-yiew Sunday on Week- end, a CBC network public af- fairs television program. Mr. Cardinal contended that (he federal government is hold- ing up fi.mds for Ir.flinii pro- grams already approved in principle in an a'lc-irn! to end a cm-rent boycott of schools by Al- berta Indians. The young Indian organizer said his group has decided to refuse all federal money for In- dian programs because it could no longer remain independent while accept ing Ottawa financ- ing. GOT DOC'MliNT IN SEPT. ?'u-. Carui.ial said he received (he official cabinet document Jast September and that it an- nounced approval in principle fcr the concept of Indian cul- tural education centres and a five-year program with S10 mil- lion earmarked frr it. After getting the document, which he said was signed by D. .7. Leach, superintendent of cab- inet documents, he sent a tele- gram to Marc Lalonde, Prime Minister TrudeauV secretary. The telegram asked why there was a delay in giving out the federal funds and suggested that the delay was aimed at breaking the association. Mr. Lalonde's reply was that the as- sociation should not make ridic- ulous charges, the Indian leader said. A spokesman in the office of Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien declined comment on the authenticity of the document cited by Mi-. Cardinal. He also would not comment on whether or not a funding program for Indian cultural centres had been approved. The decison to forgo federal financing ir.sans the loss of lo that the gov. ernment allocated for Indian ed- ucation centres this year and another allocated to recreation programs for Alberta Indians. Mr. Cardinal said. Any funds approved for fulure spending also would go by the boards. The loss in effect meant the erd the association.
