Realism rules at UN about stopping war STEPHEN SCOTF UNITED NATIONS (CP) Why, you may ask, doesn't the UN" do something to stop the hostilities on the Indian subcontinent? The question is a good one. Tlie UN is the orgatuza- -jon that Is supposed to stop war. The Se- curity Council has the specific function of seeking answer is realism. What can tire UN or the council do? To date India and Pakistan have felt that a coun- cil meeting might be counterproductive. In other words, they ask, can anything be achieved by sitting around a table and calling each other names? Furthermore, Pakistan has taken a look at the composition of the council and come to the conclu- sion that it may not have enough friends there lo get action that it agrees with. A council meeting can be called by any member of the UN on any significant subject. But, in practice, only those who are involved in a dispute call a meeting. "An exception was in 1967 when, just before the Middle East, six-day war, Canada and Denmark felt that the situation in the area was so dangerous that the council should take some action. The Soviet bloc pooh-poohed the idea and nothing rame of the meeting. A short time later there was war. Could be spurred There is no doubt that Pakistan would call a coun- cil meeting if Indian troops moved into East Pakis- tan in largo numbers and gave an indication that they uere there lo stay. But al Ihe moment it appears to feel thai the name calling in council meetings would only make the situation worse. Then. too. Pakistan and India look on the situa- tion in different lights. Pakistan sees a rebel movement, strongly assisted by Indians, attempting to establish a separate state. India officially sees the. East Pakistan situation as purely a mailer for the east and west arms of Pakis- tan lo snrl diil. As far as India is concerned, at the, rmminil. this is an internal mailer outside the scope, of (lie Security Council. If Ihe council met. about the best it could do is call for peace. Observers unlikely In Ihe past tho UN could send observer forces to areas of (rouble. They acted as a calming element. Hut lo send such forces, Ihe UN must have per- mission from the country or countries in which they would be established. It is nol certain that both India and Pakistan would accept them. And Ihe UN in Ihe last few years has Ixvn unahlo In agree on the terms of reference for such observer fcrcc.s. So it is not certain whether the council could agree lo send tlx-m. Depending on Ihe situation on tho subcontinent, things could change rapidly and the council could be called on an emergency basis to deal with the situa- tion. Bill. al.

Possibly residents are ap- proaching the game with cau- tion, cognizant of the fact th this city has produced some wildly exuberant sports crowds in the past. The mo'it recent example was in 1S6G, the last lim- the Grey Cup was played here. A total of 089 persons" were arrested in weekend revelry and rioting. This year, steps are being taken to keep things quieter. CHANGE PARADE The parade, which tradition- ally brings crowds downtown on game day, is being held the day before the game and it will start and finish in a remote cor- ner of the city without coming wilhin earshot of dov.-nlriwn. ROOMS CO HIGH In Vancouver, thre were un- confirmed reports of ro-jm scal- pers, subletting pre purchased rooms at up to twice the normal rate. A marina spokesman said some out-of-town visitors are beating the hotel-room shortage by living aboard chartered yachts in the harbor. The B.C. Hotels Association says hotels in the metropolitan area are booked solid for the weekend, but rooms still were available in such outlying com- munities as Langley, Alder- grove and White Rock.

Most of the COO now are liv- ing with their families because the department of health and social development's only cen- tre is overcrowded.

We have to accept '.hm. he said he would make war." She assailed the contention that the Soviet Union was re- straining Egypt from embark- ing on what Sadat says would be a war for liberation of the Sinai Desert captured in the 1967 war.

"The Trudeau baby will be Horn in the maternity ward at Ottawa Civic Hospital." Ottawa ,T o ii r n a 1 readers were told Thursday in a front-page story. Tlie Ottawa Citizen, in a simi- lar front-page account, said: "Amid hush-hush security precautions. Ottawa General Hospital is making plans to de- liver a prime ministerial baby next month."

WILLIAM WUITUNEE Kimberley climbers feared dead TIMARU. N.Z. 'Renter) Two climbers missing for four days on snow-swept Mount Scf- ton near here were feared today to have died as worsening con- ditions cut off rescue attempts. Ground parties searching for Murray McPhail of Kimberley, B.C., and Helen Irwin, wife of a local mountain ranger, were called off today. 15ad weather increased the danger of avalanche, a noto- rious feature of the peak. The two climbers set out Sun- day with rations for only two days. They were last seen on the summit Tuesday. Two air force helicopters are standing by to airlift rescuers onto the face when conditions permit, but searchers fear the two may have already died. Six days ago, an American climber 'died when he was caught in an avalanche in the area. Meany stricken WASHING TON (AP) George Meany. 77-year-old president of the AFL-CIO, was admitted to hospital early Thursday suffering from what his doctor said was "severe chest pains." Cup of Milk Fluid Its a great feeling CALGARY fCFn William Wuttunee, a Cree Indian, said today the federal government is spending "lots of money on the but some Indian asso- ciation executives are "using these funds to exploit their own people while living very high themselves." To back up his contention, the 43-year-old Calgary lawyer said Harold Cardinal, president of the Indian Association of Al- berta, gets a salary of a year plus S12.000 for expenses. The association's legal adviser receives S30.000 plus ex- penses and an executive secre- tary is paid annually. FORMER CHIEF Mr. Wuttunee, former chief of the National Indian Council, made the comments in a boolf and expanded on them in an, interview today. The book, titled "Ruined deals with Provin- cial Indian Associations in Can- ada, but places emphasis on the Indian Association of Al- berta. "Tills organization has been most successful in obtaining funds from the federal govern- ment for its operational ex- penses and each year its bud- g e t increases Mr. Wuttunee said. "It gives one the feeling that the execu- tive of this organization knows where the proverbial money tree grows." He said the Alberta associa- tion budget in fiscal 1970 was of which came from the federal government. Of the total budget, S328.523 was spent on salaries. SPENDING TOO MUCH "They are spending too much on salaries the money should be given to friendship centres as they are doing an excellent job of aiding integra- tion. "I'm in favor of integration not segregation." Mr. Wuttunee. a former board member of the Indian- Eskimo Association of Can- ada, said the poor Indian is bet- ter off than the poor wlu'ta man. "If an Indian wants to leave the reserve and buy a house in the city, the Indian affairs branch will provide him with a mortgage loan. If lie stays in the house, un a cer- tain period of lime he doesn't have to repay the loan. He can also receive a grant of lor furniture.
