Canadian missionary disputes famine story CALGARY (CP) News stories claiming Last year's Ethiopian famine was made worse through callous attempts by the nation's government to hide the tragedy were not true, a Canadian missionary who spent 20 years in the area says "There was no attempt to hide the facts." Rev. George Middleton of the Sudan interios mission told a weekend meeting. "I do not believe, having known officials of the Ethiopian government as I have, that there was any attempt to conceal the famine They just did not know what was going on." Mr. Middleton, who directs the mission effort in northern Ethiopia for supporting evangelical churches in Canada, said neither the government nor missionaries were completely aware of the famine's extent due to poor communications in the mountainous terrain. "I was district superintendent (of SIM) for northern Ethiopia and yet I did not tell SIM what was happening because I did not expect it Each year of the three-year drought, farmers kept expecting the usually reliable rains to end the dry season, he said. When they failed to come in 1973, the rural population of the northern provinces of Tigre and Wollo began to starve. SUDDEN FLOOD The result was a sudden flood of villagers seeking help in the larger towns and a belated awareness that thousands were dying, he said. "People began pouring in from the hinterland. Eight thousand came to our mission station alone in every stage of disease and death." Once the facts were known, government officials joined missionaries in working "day and night" to relieve the suffering, he said. The governor-general of Tigre province, Has Mengesha Seyume, helped push grain packages out of a low-flying aircraft nearly losing his hand in the process. Mr Middleton attributed support flayed TORONTO (CP) A citizens' group, Christians Against Terrorism, has charged that the Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Churches are using donated money to support terrorist movements around the world. Cedric Greenhill, leader of Christians Against Terrorism, said in an interview the group has been handling out pamphlets at churches to warn Christians about aid going to guerrilla or liberation movements. "The churches are publishing a lot of propaganda the Roman Catholics, the United Church and the Anglicans in support of liberation movements in South he said. "This horrifies me because the churches' work is the saving of souls. I don't think they should be involved in political activity, including the killing of blacks or said Mr. Greenhill, a real estate broker who said he lived for 15 years as a fanner in Rhodesia. The pamphlet asks contributors to send donations directly to "some legitimate, non political relief organization" like the Red Cross or the St. Vincent De Paul Society. In a letter to all parish priests, Most Rev. Philip F. Pocock, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Toronto, rejected the contents of the pamphlet. CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST limits. J H.

Mr. Middleton is on a two- week speaking tour of Canadian churches and BiWe colleges in an effort to gather funds and volunteer workers to help make drought-stricken Ethiopian villages habitable again.
