Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, October THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD 5 Le Devoir publisher feels public employees need right to strike QUEBEC (CP) The pub- lisher of French-language dai- ly Le Devoir says he sees no need for a special labor code for employees in the public sector and except in the case of policemen, firemen and hospital workers, the right to strike should be maintained in this field. Claude Ryan, told the an-' nual convention of the Bus Owners Association Saturday, that unions were a natural consequence of a democratic society where injustices prevail. Mr. Ryan said although Quebec's labor legislation was one of the most advanced in North America it still needed some improvements. He said it was necessary to define more clearly the mean- ing of essential services which are too vaguely defined in the labor code. It is too often left up to judges to settle labor disputes, for which they have little preparation, he said, and as a result injunctions become an easy way out for employers, who frequently use this process C A REE R S OPENING FOR ACCOUNTANT Johnson Brothers Sawmills Ltd. need an accountant to start November 1st, 1974.

Box 339, PEACE RIVER, Hungry refugees flood Dacca as Bangladesh endures famine DACCA (AP) Refugees, mostly women and children, have been streaming into the Bangladesh capital by the hundreds this month in search of food. They are victims of the most severe famine to strike the Indian subcontinent in at least three decades. They have come to Dacca by boat, by train and on foot. As they reach the train or boat ter- minal or are found lying along the pavements of the city, they are taken by police to camps, known as "gruel kitchens." The government has set up such camps throughout the country to provide emergency relief for some of the more than five million who face starvation among the country's 77 million persons. The government placed armed guards at the Dacca camps to keep those inside from roaming the capital's streets, causing social unrest. Some diplomats offered what they said were conser- vative guesses that a million Bengalis would die of starva- tion or related diseases, based on reports reaching Dacca from the government and volunteer organizations. This will be within six weeks, they said, before the autumn food crop is harvested. The daily diet at the camps usually is limited to a few hard chapatis, or wheat pan- cakes. Much of the summer crop was destroyed by floods. The Bangladesh govern- ment has arranged to import emergency food shipments. Much of the food aid will not arrive for another month, however, by which time it is feared hundreds of thousands will have starved. The three Dacca camps are set up in an abandoned in- dustrial estate and in a high school and a college closed indefinitely because of the famine. Each has a population of and the number is growing by at least 200 daily from as far as 100 miles away. Supervisors at the camp at Khilgaon High School in north- east Dacca say about three persons a day do leave the camp. They are taken to a public burial ground.

Birth control needed in lower BIRMINGHAM (AP) Sir Keith Joseph, the man re- garded by some as a con- tender to replace Edward Heath as Conservative party leader, has urged birth con- trol among the lower classes to prevent what he called the degeneration of British society. Sir Keith, former Con- servative social security min- ister, blamed much of Brit- ain's social ills on what he called working class sexual promiscuity that leads to teen- age pregnancies and ille- gitimate births. "The balance of our popu- lation, our human stock is he told a meet- ing Saturday in this major in- dustrial city 100 miles north of London.

Despite high winds, rain and a 35-degree temperatures, the aircraft had little difficulty during landing and take-off.

An attorney for the officials and a court-appointed receiver made the claim about money following an order by a federal judge on a suit brought by the Securities and a former salesman for the firm U.S. District Judge Charles Fulton ruled Friday that the defendants must repay the money.
