East-to-west sailing bid LORIENT, France (AP) Alain Pelletier, a 40-year-old Frenchman, set out yesterday hoping to make the first non- stop solo sailing trip around the world from east to west in the Southern Hemisphere. Other solitary navigators have circumnavigated the globe from west to east, the direction of the prevailing winds. But until Pelletier's attempt, the only other one from east to west began last month by British sailor Chay Blith in a steel ketch. Pelietier plans to make the nautical mites in 300 days. He will first have to round the dangerous Cape Horn in the 33- foot, 4.3-ton plywood vessel named Arauna II. He then plans to sail northward for better winds, and pass Australia on the south side next spring or summer. Canada landed for assistance PARIS (Reuter) The Or- ganization for Economic Co-op- eration and Development praised Canada today for its ef- forts at increasing aid to devel- oping countries. The development assistance committee of the OECD said after an annual review of Cana- dian aid effort; during 1969, that it is "impressed by the near doubling of official development assistance commitments to million, which will result in in- creased disbursements in future years." The committee welcomed the Canadian government's accept- ance of a 0.7-per-cent of the Gross National Product target for official development assist- ance. The committee also expressed "great interest in the newly cre- ated Canadian International De- velopment Research Centre." Girl flees from husband who paid for her VAN NUVS, Calif. (AP) Juvenile authorities are puz- zling over a case they haven't faced .before: a 14-year-old Turkish girl who ran away from the husband who paid for her. The girl, Husinye Zolo, is in a foster home and officials say she's afraid to return ei- ther to her husband or her homeland. In his report, Officer B.C. Coe of the missing persons de- tail in this Los Angeles suburb said: "According to Turkish custom, since the subject was sold by her family, it would bring disgrace upon her if she returned." Ayni Zoto, a 33-year-old Al- banian here on a visa, went to Turkey two months ago, bought Husniye, married her in Istanbul, brought her here, took a apart- ment and went to work for a restaurant. A few weeks ago Zolo filed missing-persons report, say- tog Husinye had. not returned. Husinye turned up at the Turkish Consulate here and was placed with a TurMsh- speakiEg family. The consu- late said it would help the girl get a divorce. On Dec. 2, Juvenile Court will hold a hearing to decide what to do about Husniye who, officials say, is well but unhappy.
