JOHNSON New York Times Service CAMP LAZARETH, Niger Neatly placed among the tall, green stalks of ripening millet, just a few hundred yards from this jumble of animal skin and canvas tents, are the recent graves of scores of victims of the sub- Sahara's five years of drought and famine. It is a steadily growing cemetery for the Tuaregs, once a warrior tribe that had been the scourge of the desert. Many of their reddish- brown burial mounds are covered with thorn bushes to discourage the ever-present vultures. The graves are a reminder that the million inter- national relief effort could not save all the millions of people threatened by the famine. They also symbolize, tor many, the death of a way of life." Social scientists contend that tribes like the Tuareg will be forced to alter their desert existence drastically. Their ancient way of life is no longer permissible because it includ- ed raiding neighboring tribes for food and slaves, taxing travelers for the right to move through the desert or use of the few watering places, and forcing members of other tribes to pay the Tuaregs as their "protectors." The drought that killed un- told numbers of their people, as well as their life-sustaining cattle, camels, sheep and goats, has reduced the Tuaregs' possibilities even more. So many Tuaregs. such as the more than 5.000 who wait for deliveries of food GENERAL FARM Presents The SUNRISE TUESDAY SUNSET H L Pre Weather .62 .00 .22 .01 01 .00 .18 Lethbridge...... 66 Pincher Creek 69 Medicine Hat. 73 Edmonton 46 Grande Prairie 50 Banff........... 56 Calgary........53 Victoria 60 Penticton....... 65 Prince George... 48 Kamloops....... 63 Vancouver...... 59 Saskatoon......64 Regina........ 79 Winnipeg......74 Toronto......... 61 Ottawa......... 61 Montreal 60 St. John's....... 55 Halifax........ 57 Charlottetown 54 Fredcricton..... 57 Chicago .......67 New York 71 Miami.......... 85 Los Angeles..... 76 Las Vegas 96 Phoenix ,......100 Rome 82 Paris........... 57 London......... 55 Berlin......... 61 Amsterdam..... 57 Moscow 61 Stockholm 57 FORECAST: Lethbridge, Medicine Hat regions Today: Cloudy with occasional showers Highs 40 37 43 32 34 34 32 46 39 36 42 49 40 43 53 35 37 41 43 40 39 32 57 54 77 63 63 64 55 49 45 43 48 48 45 04 near 50.

Mrs. Tan Gosi told a visitor, "our people and our cattle were dy- ing at our home in the desert near Mali. So we divided the animals and the families into four groups and moved toward the south." Mrs. Gosi. a woman of 50 who is proficient in French because she has been an animal trader, said that her own group of about 150 people, "and many, many animals." moved almost due south 350 miles over more than two months. "We lost most of the animals and many, many of our she said Her 20-year-old Asheriff. and her daughter. Mariam. completed the trek but died days alter their tent was pitched here.

Upper Volta and Niger. They are thought to number Jess than a million people. Called "People of the Veil" because many Tuareg men shield their faces with a long blue cloth against the hot winds, the Tuaregs speak a Hamitic language related to that of the ancient Libyans. A Caucasian people although they are heavily mix- ed with black Americans in some regions the Tuaregs' caste system consists of a few noble families and a large ma- jority group of vassals, still a lower class of black serts. or "slaves."
