Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta MIGHT RETIRE An Ontario cabinet source said Thurs- day Ontario Premier John Roberts will officially announce his retirement shortly after returning from a trip to Quebec Dec. 6. The source, who asked not to be identified, said the first Candidate in the field to succeed Mr. Robarts would be Education Minister William Davis, 42. Mr. Robarts, 53, who has remained non-ccmmifal abou! his retirement, has been Conservative premier for nine years.

"Is there no one to help asked the journalist. "No was the reply, "lie is, a beggar man. Let the will of Allah be done." Nearby, the Pakistani mili- tia was loading bags of relief supplies to be shipped to the disaster area. "Why were others not help- ing? tiie journalist asked. "Some students at the uni- v e r s i t y helped said the townsman. IT'S INCOMPREHENSIBLE To the westerner, the trag- edy here is incomprehensible. There is a wealth of sup- plies brought in by foreign countries resting at Dacca in the north and desperately needed by the survivors in the south. Those supplies now are moving by paid ferry. During the first week fol- lowing the cyclone, those fer- ries moved up and down the rivers as they normally do, carrying normal trade and passengers while bodies rot- ted and survivors shivered a few hours boat travel away. Government leaders lr- mented that supplies dropped in delta depots were not being distributed through the shal- low waters of the region be- cause small boats there had been destroyed by the storm. Hundreds of small boats were visible only miles away survivors had to wait for the helicopters and bosU of the British, Americans and French. At a headquarters here, south of Dacca and on western fringe of the disaster area, joint British-Pakistani relief officers found they had to pay local people five rupees for each burial of floc-d vic- tims. DEMAND PAY At Barisal, an angry British struggling to get his five-soldier team into the re- lief area, found that laborers who gave momentary assist- ance moving equipment into a ship demanded payment. Some Westerners under- stand this. These are poor people who have geared them- selves to nothing except sur- vival sincre they were born. But a higher level under- standing is more difficult. No government official has ever really explained why Pakistani helicopters were not moved in from West Pakistan after the cyclone and why they ave only starting to come in now. Nor has anyone said why the army and militia were not mobilized to help bury the dead and move relief until well over a week after the dis- aster. The Dacca Daily Express, in bold letters on its front page last week, said nature was not the only villain of this tragedy.

Delegates in the dairy work- shop recommended the Cana- dian dairy commission have as a major objective the structural adjustment of the industry's production sector. Delegates supported the rec- ommendation that the commis- sion announce its general pro- grams at least five years in ad- vance while recognizing the dif- ficulties involved in precision forecasting for such a lengthy period. They also said elimination of the support program would de- stroy the industrial milk indus- try in Canada and put a great many farm families on welfare. One of the federal report's recommendations calls for all provinces to abolish the retail price controls on milk. Winnipeg police get pay hike WINNIPEG (CP) The Win- nipeg police department will re- ceive a 14.5 per cent wage in- crease over a two year per- od ending in 1971. The wage increase, 7.7 per cent in 1970 and 7.5 per cent in 971, will boost a first class constable's salary to slightly better than per year in 971. On Jan. 1 of this year a con- table earned ?671 a month and July 1, 1971 the constable will be making a month. native jobs in rural settings, the report said. Such aims might be accom- plished through an incentive system to "decentralize in- dustrial location." The government should lead the way by decentralizing gov- ernment offices and by provid- ing service in rural areas "even if this can only be done at some loss of economic efficiency." The delegates agreed with the policy recommendation that ed- ucation of the "rural young" is necessary to improve their in- come opportunities. The final. report suggested :hat channelling farm children into technical farm programs n school must be avoided in or- der not to reduce the "long- term cultural and employment viability" of such children.
