The Swami league car ried 15 of the 388 seats that were contested and is expected to take All nine of the seats in the disaster stricken area when the elections Are held there. In West Pakistan Zulfi Kar Ali Bhutto s left Wing people s party took 81 of the 138 seats. Thus the two will be the strongmen of the new National Assembly. Pakistan s future will depend on whether they can get together on the drafting of the new Constitution. President Yahya Khan who called the election has Given the Assembly 120 Days after their first full meeting to make the draft of a new Constitution. If they fail he will dissolve the Assembly and continue to Rule through martial Law. Democracy has been an elusive goal in Pakistan since its formation. This As Sembly s predecessor perpetuated itself for eight years before it finally drafted a Constitution and Yahya Khan has made it Clear he wants no such foot dragging from the new one. The election Campaign was mostly a Battle of personalities the Only major Issue was sheikh Mujib s platform of autonomy for Pakistan s provinces Nota Bly his own province of East Pakistan. Resentful the bengalis in East Pakistan have been very resentful of what they regard As domination and exploitation by the More advanced and intellectual West pakis Tanis Pakistan was formed from the partition of the British Indian Empire the Eastern and Western districts ludicrously separated by a thousand Miles of hos tile India. East and West Pakistan Are different in almost every Way climate Popula Tion wealth the tempera ment of their people. The Only real tie is the moslem Faith and the fear of hindu India. The government has always been controlled by the punjabis in West pakis Tan and not without reason the bengalis feel that their development and problems have been ignored while the West has been built up. As Early As 1966 sheikh Mujib began agitating for East pakistani autonomy. His Arami league in that year published a six Point program that limited the authority of the Central government to defence and foreign affairs. His move ment was attacked by the former president Ayub Khan who perhaps rightly saw it As an Effort to set up a n Independent state in East Pakistan. In 1968 the sheikh and 33 others were arrested and accused of plotting armed revolt against the govern ment. A year later As the forces will bring Yule to tiny Village a Grade 6 teacher at Allard elementary school St. James Assiniboia has spurred the Canadian forces into a Christmas Airlift that May rival Santa Glaus himself. Competing with the Jolly Man and his Reindeer will be two Otter aircraft of 402 City of Winnipeg squad Ron which will carry 500 pounds of books and Candy during the weekend to waa Sag Mach 250 Miles North East of Winnipeg at the Edge of Island Lake. The project began when Donna Jaworski suggested it in connection with a social studies program in her Grade 6 class. The school s 470 students gathered 400 pounds of books and 100 pounds of Candy for the 159 children at Waas Gomach but that was Only the beginning. Residents and merchants of East Kildonan have also contributed to the Christ Mas Airlift. As one of the City s final Centennial projects a cargo of food clothing skates toys and Ottier gifts will be flown by the 402 Squadron otters to St. Theresa Point red sucker Lake and Sha Matawa. Maj. Roy Wilson of East Kildonan and it. Roger Zwickel of St. Boniface will Pilot the aircraft picking up some Northern flying training at the same time. Situation worsened and bloody riots wracked East Pakistan he was released. His detention had made him even More of a hero to the bengalis and along with his platform of autonomy More or less guaranteed his sweep of the seats in East Pakistan. The Cyclone and flood which devastated parts of East Pakistan further added to sheikh Mujib s popularity. The sheikh accused the government of criminal indifference to the plight of the survivors. Whether or not this accusation was justified the bengalis were All too ready to believe it. Although the government has since the terrible disturbances of 1969, paid More attention to that area the memory of 20 years of neglect is not easily erased. President Yahya Khan on a visit to peking was in formed of the last month s disaster in East Pakistan by a message that came straight from Dacca. Before 1969, this would have been routed through official channels via the capital of Rawalpindi. A More typical if perhaps extreme example of the Way in which East Pakistan has been administered was the governor who was reported to have said that he was guided to his decisions by a celestial Light emanating from the presidential Palace in West Pakistan of former pres ident Ayub Khan. The bengalis conviction that they have been by exploited by the men in Rawalpindi is the basis for sheikh Mujib s hold on them. Since his entry to politics at the age of 22 he has been their Champion and their Martyr. Now that the sheikh Heads the government and Grant aids teacher Standard study critique by John w.

In no Way could this be said to be a definitive View of Art today but it is an attractive segment of the total scene much of which is not painted with marketable intent and therefore could hardly be expected to be found in such a situation. While a reasonable percent age of the work on View has been seen there before in the context of one Man shows there is some work which is new and one artist who is a newcomer to the gallery. It is usually preferable to View the work of an artist in some degree of completeness with enough work to be seen that one can determine the degree to which it is representative of his style and viewpoint at least the first time he is presented. However the four Watercolours by a japanese Canadian Kazuo Hamasaki Are deft and sure enough to be assumed with some Assurance to be representative of his work. The resultant Harmony Between the Brush and the stroke with which he evokes his subject matter is the most personal and unusual Are several charcoal portraits by Helen Lucas. They have a Static dreamlike almost haunt ing idealization suggestive of a kind of monumental pre Raphaelite race.

A. Mackinnon o Saskatoon chairman of the Ca Nadian committee said that a professional standards subcommittee will use the Grant t Complete the study started twi years ago. He said the International body and its Canadian committee were set up to Advance the Edu cation of exceptional children both handicapped and gifted but that to do this requires the provision of specially trainee staff. A statement of professional standards he said would be particularly useful to provincial departments of education universities and local school boards. The subcommittee on professional standards Hopes to have its report completed by 1972, or. Mackinnon said. He said the National Institute on mental retardation based at York University has provided a Grant of for the development of standards of Para professional personnel who pro vide support services for professionals working with exceptional children. The Canadian Donner foun Dation is a private foundation established by the late William h. Donner industrialist Ani philanthropist. Based in Toron to it makes available Grant for a variety of social science projects that do not fall within the terms of reference of othe agencies in Canada. Back to Jau after theft of clothing was Victor Paul Whyte 32, sentenced Friday to a second term in heading Ley jail in less than three weeks after he pleaded guilty to a charge of theft. In Winnipeg magistrate s court magistrate Anthony Pilu Tik was told Whyte of no fixed address had been discharged from heading Ley dec. 4, after Irving two weeks on an earlier theft charge. Whyte was arrested in a on s store thursday six Days after his release court was old. He had stolen clothing valued at Whyte told the magistrate he had been let out of jail with bout in his Possession. This in had spent but he had been trying to raise Money for his return fare to Toronto. The Swami league has a majority solidly based in East Pakistan a clash with Yahya Khan seems inevitable if sheikh Mujib Sticks to his six Yahya Khan has always intended that the new Constitution will Weld the provinces of Pakistan More closely to Gether. Any move by the new Assembly to draft one that will do otherwise is bound to Lead to conflict perhaps even if the conflict becomes extreme to the dissolution of the Assembly by Yahya Khan and the delay once again of a re turn to civilian Rule. Yahya Khan has made it Clear that he will not Toler ate seeing the country divided into five with this in mind sheikh Mujib May think it Wise to soft pedal his hard toned six principles and prefer to preside Over a Strong Cen trial government based on an East pakistani majority. He has already dropped his demands for the com plete separation of East and West Pakistan and indicated that he is willing to con cede the Power of taxation to the Central government. If sheikh Mujib and Yahya Khan can agree on a limited concept of autonomy to be embodied in the Constitution then the sheikh May be Able to control the Hartline secessionists in his party. He is too firmly committed to the concept of regional autonomy to aban Don it completely however and if he does clash with Yahya Khan there Are Many in Pakistan who would be glad to see him fall. Although the election was peaceful and Good natured enough the delicate task of framing a new Constitution and the Mutual distrust with which each faction regards the other May cause trouble in the future.
