Relief Supplies Leave Cincinnati Tonight

Relief-supplies flight to leave Cincinnati tonight

A jet carrying relief supplies and volunteers is to leave Cincinnati tonight for South Asia to help victims of the tidal wave which wrecked that region and caused widespread death and suffering. Cincinnati multi-millionaire Carl Lindner and his family are providing 200-thousand dollars to pay the costs of fuel for the Boeing 747 jet. Relief organizations planning the mission say it will carry food, water and other supplies to India and Sri Lanka. Among those planning to go on the flight are Lindner's son - Carl Lindner the third - and teachers and students from the Lindner-supported Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. Lindner spokeswoman Sandra Heimann says Lindner has also offered use of the plane to fly doctors into the disaster-stricken area.
