Following is a list of Canadian daily newspapers that have ceased publication since the Second World War: The Edmonton Bulletin, 1951; II a m i Hon Daily News, 1936; Vancouver Herald, 1957; Montreal Herald, 1957; Montreal Sun, 1958; o n I r c a 1 Lc iNouvcau Journal, 1962; Vancouver Times, 1955; Onclph (Onl.)

But others were well-established, such as the Edmonton Bulletin, Alberta's first newspaper, which had been published for 71 years. The Vancouver Herald lasted 21 as a morning paper.

He had ordered 79 of 169 a- sembly members from East but two of them members of the banned Awami for crimes allegedly committed against the state. In addition, Yahya said as- semblymen would have up to 90 days to consider amending the constitution, which is being written by a committee of ex- perts. Seats of disqualified assem- blymwi have not officially been declared vacant.

Diefenbaker marks 7( birthday OTTAWA (CP1 Former prime minister John Diefenba- ker celebrated his 76th birthday today by reading hundreds of letters and telegrams welcom- ing him home from a Welsh hospital. Mr. Diefenbaker arrived home Friday night after spend- ing 11 days in hospital for treat- ment of an ulcer. He became ill while visiting I the estate of Brig. Michael Wai-1 dell, former publisher of Ihe Fredericton Gleaner now living in Wales.

He I old a visiting reporter that, "I'm feeling just fine and I am enjoying myself immensely reading all these leltcrs and tel- egrams. "It's just wonderful." rift being patched up VANCOUVER (CP) The board of directors of the Brit- ish Columbia Medical Associa- tion announced here it has ac- cepted a three part agree- ment aimed at ending a dis- pute between the provinc i a 1 government and doctors over Health Minister Paul L off- mark's right to intervene in doctors' hospital privileges. The provincial cabinet pass- ed an amendment to the Hospi- tals Act in July giving Loff- mark power to "instruct" any hospital board on Ihe question of doctors privileges. The order was designed to bring pressure on the medical profession to give remote ureas of the province the services of a doctor. The legislation so far has not been used. Among the proposals an- nounced is one that the cabinet order will be amended if doc- tors undertake a study of the distri b u t i o n of physicians across the province. The most significant amend- ment may be the deletion of a clause that allows a hospital board to appeal a decision of the health minister to the cab- inet. It is believed the appeal will go instead to a non political body. -Monday, Sapdmbri JO, 1971 THE LETHBRIDOI HIULD 2i Secret trial ends KARACHI (AP) The secret trial of Sheik Mujibur Rahman, East Pakistani leader charged with "waging has ended, the government-owned Morning Nsws says.
