Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday. November 23. 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Gaza Strip calm despite Arab turmoil By HENRY KAMM New York Times Service GAZA Despite the fer- ment among the population of the Israeli occupied West Bank of the Jordan River, the Gaza Strip, the densest concentration of Arabs under Israeli control, remains calm. This is the more surprising and reassuring to the Israeli authorities in view of the fact that in the years immediately following the 1967 war, when Israeli forces occupied both areas, the Gaza Strip was the most rebellious area. More than Arabs were killed by guerrillas in a struggle to prevent co- operation with the occupation regime. The guerrilla groups were neutralized before last year's outbreak of war, and Gaza, like the West Bank, remained quiet during the fighting But while the population of the West Bank has increasing- ly committed itself to the Palestine Liberation Organization and has openly demonstrated this sentiment in recent weeks, Gaza's pop- ulation of about crowd- ed into a strip along the Mediterranean 25 miles long and three to six miles wide, appears politically inert. Israel rules the strip with a limited number of troops, which was little visible this week, although officers said it had been somewhat increased in view of the tension in the other occupied areas. Despite the relative absence of open occupation pressure, no evidence of nationalist protest was seen in the course of a tour Thursday. Unlike the West Bank, where students have staged strikes and shopkeepers have heeded their call to join the strikes by closing their shops, schools and businesses are functioning normally. Neutral observers confirm- ed Israeli contentions that no leaflets supporting the Palestine Liberation Organization had been cir- culating. Even the day when Yasir Arafat, head of the organization, addressed the United Nations general assembly passed without inci- dent in the Gaza Strip. Occupation officials said that detention for questioning of suspects for political reasons were very few and declining rather than increasing. The reasons for the ap- parent pacincation of Gaza under Israeli occupation are twofold, according to Arab, Israeli and neutral observers in the Strip questioned today. The first reason cited is an absence of leadership. This is due to drastic Israeli repres- sion of all opposition since the, occupation, according to the observers. Some contended also that under Egyptian military government, from 1948 to 1967, no encourage- ment was given to political ac- tivity. Israel contends that her rule is far easier than Egyptian military government. Israelis point to the ease with which people from Gaza circulate and work within Israel, while under Egypt special travel permits, rarely issued, were required. They say also that, under Egypt, Gaza was under per- manent curfew at night, while no curfew is in effect now ex- cept along the shoreline. "The Israeli people are better than any people we ever lived with, said Mayor Mohammed Suleiman El- Azaizeh of Deir El Balah. "We have lived under Turkey, England and Egypt, and the Israeli people are better." Israel's fundamental goal of maintaining order in Gaza is well served by her labor shor- tage. About Gazans have found regular employ- ment in Israel, a labor market that Egypt could not supply. Cave-hopping recommended 'for anybody nuts' U.S. reconnaissance WASHINGTON (Reuter) The Washington Post says U.S. military analysts are making recommendations on bombing targets in com- munist controlled areas of Cambodia to the military command in Phnom Penh. In an article from Bangkok, quoting a well placed U.S. military source, The Post says the recommendations were based on aerial recon- naissance flights conducted several times daily by U.S. jets. It was the flights were in ap- parent violation of a ban on any direct U.S. military role in Cambodia. The newspaper says about three sorties a day were flown by U.S Phantom jets from a base at Udorn, Thailand. VANCOUVER (CP) What can you say about a sport which could involve sleeping in a bone-littered limestone cougar's den or have you tramping through deadfall, foot-grabbing sink holes and constant dampness that only a mushroom could enjoy? Or perhaps have you rafting down an underground river with no idea what lies ahead in the inky blackness? Vancouver-resident Rene Goth of the Canadian Spe- leological Society says the sport of caving is highly chal- lenging. "I can highly recommend it for anybody who's he says jokingly. Mr. Goth, his 18-year-old daughter Kathy and society president Paul Griffiths, also of Vancouver, are planning exploration of Vancouver Island's Artlish section which disappears into a knoll or small mountain for a third of a mile or more. "From my Mr. Griffiths said, "that could translate into a mile or two miles underground, if the river corkscrews." The area the adventurers have been studying in recent weeks lies near the Canadian Forest Products' Nimpkish Camp in the island's north section. What they call "the Artlish caves" may be reached from the east, through the Nimpk- ish Valley route, by logging road and then by foot through tortuous terrain. Mr. Griffiths says the Artl- ish caves may have the larg- est natural entrances of any caves discovered in Canada and "I think we can safely say the system is the largest un- derground river system in Canada." During the Thanksgiving weekend Rene and Kathy Goth. Mr. Griffith and 13 fel- low cavers entered the Anutz Creek area for reconnais- sance of possible access routes to the hoped-for cave on the Artlish River, another valley away. Commenting on the area's rugged terrain, Mr. Goth com- pared it to the days when he was a member of the Lan- cashire Climbing and Caving Club. "In England, it was a nice sort of moorland and you could see your limestone crop- pings. You would see sheep wandering around and oc- casionally you'd see the shepherds who looked after them. "It's quite different to take a two-hour ferry ride, and then meet in some pub in Na- naimo, and then drive about 400 miles, half of the time on gravel roads, then crash through the brush and under- growth and river beds for five or six miles, staying in log- ging camps and what have you."
