PAGE SIXTEEN EVENING HERALD OF SHENANDOAH ASHLAND-MAHANOY CITY- THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 1972 Bangladesh Agony otf By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst For many of the more than 70 million inhabitants of Bangladesh independence has meant exposure to profiteers, looters, starvation and other ills attendant upon a government in paralysis. And the fact that some 60 of the world's nations, including the United States, have recognized the new nation does little to ease the agony of its birth. In Dacca, Prime Minister Sheik Mujibur Rahman receives TiVAVUUfliU 4 DAYS FRIDAY THRU MONDAY!

It is not the way to run a government. Under these enormous pressures it is little wonder that Sheik Mujib tells visitors he is feeling worn out and ill. Worst of all, he is considered the one man capable of holding Bangladesh together. Although the United States accorded diplomatic recognition to Bangladesh only belatedly, it has been among the most generous of the world's nations in its offers of aid. 1350 Million Pledged Total aid pledged by all sources comes to about $350 million. Of this, U.S. aid comes to about $100 million, including grains, vegetable oils, emergency shelter supplies and a little more than $35 million to help move emergency food supplies out of clogged ports and into the hands of those facing death from starvation farther inland. Despite trailing far behind the United States in the total of its aid, the Soviet Union has taken advantage of the U.S. delay in according formal recognition to move far ahead in the propaganda field. Mujib has lifted the ban on communism and Soviet-Bangladesh friendship societies have sprung up throughout the country, leading the attack on the United States as an enemy Ashland ministerium to offer play tonight The Ashland "Area Ministerium, in conjunction with its "Faith Through the Arts" series, will present John Osborne's "Luther," a play to be performed by the nationally acclaimed Alpha-Omega Players in St. John's Episcopal Church at 7:30 on April 6.

It has been estimated that nearly 230,000 tons of food lie aboard ships in Bangladesh harbors, kept there by a shortage of transport and a web of bureaucratic red tape much of which is attributed to United Nations headquarters in New York. Toni Hagan is the Swiss head of U.N. relief operations in Dacca. He asked for 30 barges to move food inland and got two. No Storage Place He estimates $30 million is needed for bridges, culverts and 5,000 trucks to carry food supplies. And as of today, even if additional badly needed food supplies were to arrive, he would have no place to store it. The difficulty is that most of those attempting to administer Bangladesh are amateurs. Thousands of East Bengal technicians still are being held in West Pakistan, apparently as hostages for future peace negotiations. The personality of Sheik Mujib has been the glue which held together Bangladesh's largest party, the Awami League. But the league is breaking down into factions and many of its lesser leaders are accused of open profiteering. It's a sick country which needs considerably more than diplomatic recognition to assure survival. Scott Avery and Craig Torrence. The Alpha-Omega Players, Repertory Theatre of America, has performed in 45 states, has traveled more than 600,000 miles in the last four years, which ranks them as one of the most active touring theatre groups in the country. Drexel H. Riley is the producer-director of the group. Selected highlights from Osborne's "Luther," will por-, tray this 16th Century "angry young man" in a passionate struggle with his own conscience and his revolt against the authorities of the Catholic Church, which led to Protestantism. Luther was searching for a faith to hold when he became beset with disbelief in the Establishment a search with which many young people in today's world struggle can identify.

Isabel Jewell succumbs at 62 HOLLYWOOD (UPD-Isabel Jewell, who went from movie star of the 1930s appearing in classics such as "Gone with the Wind" and "Lost Horizon"-to court dockets in her later years for drunkenness and bad checks, was found dead in her home Wednesday. She was 62. The coroner's office gave no cause of death. The daughter of a prominent Shoshoni, Wyo., doctor and medical researcher, Miss Jewell, her real name, was a hit in her first appearance on a Broadway stage, stepping into a role in "Up Pops the Devil" in 1930 with only three hours rehearsal. The petite blonde's movies included "Manhattan Melodrama" with William Powell and Clark Gable, the role of the seamstress in "A Tale of Two Cities" with Ronald Colman, and with Colman in "Lost Horizon." She appeared in "Northwest Passage" with Spencer Tracy, "Ceiling Zero" with James Cagney, "Small Town Girl" with James Stewart, and "Gone with the Wind." Her best known stage appearances were in "Of Mice and Men" and "Counsellor at Law." Courthouse News V.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.V.-.-.-.-.;..-.-.-. ZONING AGREEMENT A settlement was reached in a zoning dispute between residents of the 20th and W. Market street area in Pottsville and a firm seeking a variance in the ordinance. Judge Guy A. Bowe, Jr. approved the stipulation agreed between Mel-Penn Co. Inc. and Timothy and Ruth Reilly, who represented 79 petitioners who appealed to the county court from the Pottsville Zoning Board's ruling approving the variance. The board had allowed the firm to use a property owned by Ray Grapsy at 20th and W. Market street for use as a showroom, storage and repair shop for small generators. Under the agreement reached in court the Mel-Penn Co. is allowed to use the building for the work if it prescribed with the following limitations: The property can only be used for offices and display area for small portable generators and the minor repairs to small engines, however, the work is not to present any nuisance with regard to noise, sight or odor. The occupant of the building must furnish off-street parking for employees and customers.
