THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 2, Flood, Ice Threatening o Community Entire Town Ready To Flee HAY RIVER, Northwest. Territory --UPI-- More residents of this flood-stricken town fled their homes today «nd waited fearfully for a break in ice floes that could inundate the area. Floodwaters of the Hay River already were swirling through 90 per cent of the community ' a t an average depth of four feet. About 50 homes and the only hotel, a two-story structure, had been swept from their foundations. The greatest danger, however, still was posed by a three-mile stretch of packed ice floes that were jammed along the southern tip of the Great Slave Lake where Hay River is located. ONCE THE JAM opens, huge chunks of jagged ice could ride the resulting high crest of river water and smash through the town. Mayor W. R. McBryan, who made an inspection tour of the jams by helicopter last night, said, "we expect the water to break in on us at any time . . . we're just wait- Ing." "We're going to see if It is feasible to blow up the ice jam or the lake ice ... either one . . . to get some relief from the situation," he said. M c B R Y A N S A I D t h e town's entire population of 1,400 persons would he removed 'if it is necessary." With the help of two air force helicopters from Cold Lake in Alberta, he hoped to have 300 persons moved to higher ground today. Most of those removed so far have been billeted in the federal day school and St, Paul's Roman Catholic School, both located on high ground. An army demolition crew was placed on a 24-hour alert in the Alberta capital of Edmonton should officials decide to blow up the ice floes. IN A RELATED development, emergency supplies of typhoid vaccine were rushed to the town as septic tanks 'spilled over into the murky floodwaters. An 80 per cent power failure has idled filtering pumps along with many other utilities, limiting pure water supplies. For a few hours yesterday, communications with the outside world were cut off. The mayor said that by Tuesday night the flood had cavised property damage of more than $1 million. He declared the town an "emergency area." Offers of assistance have been received from many points in the Northwest Territory and Northern Alberta. Yellowknife has offered to take in 500 evacuees, and Fort Smith says it can accommodate 200. Slash Seen In U.S. Aid To Thailand BANGKOK, Thailand--UP) --U. S. economic aid to this pro-western country may be slashed by about 60 per cent in the coming year, Foreign Minister Thanat Khoman and a spokesman for Prime Minister Marshal Sarit Thanarat said today. The U. S. Embassy, asked to comment, said, "»There has been no o f f i c i a l word yet on what the level of aid will be" for the period. An embassy spokesman recalled that Ambassador Kenneth Young said a month ago that no major changes are contemplated in the U. S. aid program. Thanat Khoman told newsmen it was understood Thailand might get only about $10 m i l l i o n in technical and economic support, as opposed to the $25426 million-level of past years. He emphasized there had been no official communication from the United States to this effect. If the reports were true, he said, Thailand is prepared to rely on its own resources but added some development projects may have to be delayed. The spokesman for the prime minister quoted him as saying that if the reports are correct they would be contrary to earlier assurances by the United States that there would be no reduction in assistance. The subject of U. S. aid has been a touchy one here since recommendations in Washington for cutbacks in aid to Southeast Asian countries were made public earlier this year.
