THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 2, I960 T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN PAGE 13 Long-Range Relief Program Needed For Stricken Chile By LOUIS CASSELS WASHlNGTON-UPI-American Red Cross officials said today it would take a massive, long-range relief program to get stricken Chile back on its feet. They said medical supplies and .other emergency aid already rushed to Chile are just the beginning of a gigantic task of relieving human suffering in the area devastated by earthquakes and tidal waves in one · of the worst disasters of modern history. Reports from Red Cross field workers in Chile indicate that more than two million people- nearly a third of the nation's population--are homele*!. Many of them have lost their clothing, bedding, cooking utensils and other belongings. And winter is coming in Chile. June in the Southern Hemisphere is the equivalent of November here. Snow flurries and freezing temperatures already have been reported In the disaster area. A Red Cross spokesman said the emergency phase of the relif.f effort--airlifting medical supplies, arranging temporary shelter and organizing mass feeding programs --is proceeding smoothly. But he emphasized that "the big job is still ahead." That job is repairing and rebuilding homes, providing warm clothing and bedding to families"""that have lost everything they owned, and sending In "great quantities of food" for a long period of time. President Eisenhower has designated the Red Cross as 'the coordinating agency- for voluntary U.S. aid to Chile. The Red Cross has made a nationwide appeal for disaster relief funds, and its local .chapters are organizing Chilean relief committees in communities across the country. Other relief.agencies which are at work in Chile include CARE, Church World Service, Catholic Relief Sen-ices, Lutheran World Service, the Mormon Church, the Seventh Day Advcntists and the International Council of Christian Churches. The Red Cross spokesman said individual Americans could help by making contributions through any of these agencies, or directly to the Red Cross. The churches agencies are prepared to receive and forward gifts of bedding and used clothing, particularly warm clothing such as overcoats. "But the great need is for cash contributions," the Red Cross offi cial said. "If Americans give money, it can be used to buy building materials, food and cloth ing in South America. This wil be a much cheaper, quicker and more efficient way of getting help into Chile than hauling heavy supplies 5,000 miles by ship from this country." --Cltlitn Phot* REMEMBER THIS?
