Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tutidoy, Nov.mber 58, 1972 THE IETHBRIDOE HIMIO est cities holding conference TOKYO (Renter) Five of .the world's greatest cities 'opened a unique conference on i urban problems today with a warning that deteriorating cities are blighting the exis- tence and destroying the health of tens of millions of people. Governor Yokichi Min- obe, the conference host, said: world's mammoth cities have played an important role in national, political, economic and cultural development. "But technology, which in the past aided urban progress, has today advanced to where it has become the cause of urban dis- ruption, blighting the existence of tens of millions of people.

"If the situation is allowed to continue, cities will cease to be symbols of national achieve- ment and instead become sym- bols of retrogression and in- efficiency. They will destroy the health of urban resident! and produce a situation so bad that it will carry into the next gener- ation." New York's Mayor John Lind- say said whites have fled major American cities for the suburbs, and have been replaced by poor blacks and Puerto Ricans or other minority groups. "Our cities have now become a repository of America's two most painful and he told the confer- TRAFFIC WAITS FOR FIGHTING Civilian traffic jams up on the road to the hamlet of Phu H.oa, north cf Saigon, while South Viatnamese soldiers, top photo, pour fire into North Vietnamese pcsilions.
