    Background: THE WEST GERMAN RED CROSS YESTERDAY (MONDAY) RUSHED FIRST RELIEF SUPPLIES TO EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS IN THE STRICKEN TURKISH TOWN OF GEDIZ. NINE TONS OF FOOD, MEDICINE, BLANKETS AND TENTS WERE FLOWN FROM FRANKFURT TO ISTANBUL TO HELP THE THOUSANDS OF TURKS LEFT HOMELESS BY THE EARTHQUAKE.

    APPEALS FOR AID TO BE SENT TO THE TURKISH DISASTER AREA MET WITH AN IMMEDIATE RESPONSE IN WEST GERMANY. THE RED CROSS OPENED A FUND FOR EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS WITH AN INITIAL CONTRIBUTION OF 100,000 MARKS (ABOUT GBP11,000 STERLING), AND STARTED A SPECIAL BANK ACCOUNT FOR PUBLIC DONATIONS.

    WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR WILLY BRAND CABLED AN IMMEDIATE OFFER OF EMERGENCY RELIEF TO TURKISH PRIME MINISTER SULEYMAN DEMIREL.

    SIXTEEN TONS OF FOOD AND 60 TONS OF EQUIPMENT WILL BE FLOWN TO TURKEY BY WEST GERMAN ARMY AIRCRAFT. IN ADDITION THE MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR IS PREPARING ITS SPECIAL 45-MAN RESCUE SQUAD TO TRAVEL TO TURKEY TODAY. THE SQUAD WILL OPERATE HEAVY RESCUE MACHINERY. THE SAME TEAM HELPED IN THE EARTHQUAKE DISASTER IN EASTERN TURKEY FOUR YEARS AGO.
