Tuesday, August LETHBRIDGE RC leaders stress food conservation OTTAWA (CP) Canadians should eat less to preserve food for starving multitudes in underdeveloped countries, say Roman Catholic religious leaders. Members of the Canadian Catholic Conference urged Ca- nadians to "modify personal eating habits and form alternative lifestyles" to help ease a world food crisis. The conference, composed of the country's Catholic bishops, archbishops and car- dinals, made the appeal in a Labor Day statement on the food shortage. The statement is being sent to government officials and church leaders. The bishops called on the government to establish new domestic and international programs to increase food production and make more food available to un- derdeveloped countries. They said the United Nations estimates that 400 million persons do not get enough to eat and as many as 75 million face the prospect of starvation. Despite this, Canadians use large quantities of grain to raise steers and produce ex- pensive steak, the bishops said. "Worse still, human beings starve while North Americans indulge in special foods for household they said. They called on Canadians to "question the goals of an eco- nomic system which urges us to consume and waste ex- travagantly rather than share available food resources." Canadians should be prepared to oppose advertis- ing which encourages affluent eating habits. They should practise traditions of fast and abstinence by reducing food consumption, especially con- sumption of meat. The bishops suggested that people experiment with new vegetable-based substitutes for beef, pork and poultry. Savings achieved by such moderation could be channell- ed to the needy through volunteer agencies, they said. New educational programs should be directed towards changing consumer patterns and personal lifestyle. The bishops challenged ex- isting food marketing prac- tices which, they said, "con- tinually widen the gap between humanity's rich minority and poor majority."

(AP) More and more husbands are allowed in the delivery room these days, but there's not much they can do except watch. George Moulton did things differently. Under the guidance of a Pennsylvania obstetrician, George, a 27-year-old graduate student in economics, delivered his seven-pound, son, Jason Andrew, on his own. "Does it have asked Martha, a file clerk and also 27, as ...a labor contraction pushed the infant's head from her womb. "I can feel the baby's head." replied George. "It's soft, hon. Oh, it's so soft." George had scrubbed his hands and arms and donned, blue jeans and a bright red knit shirt to welcome their child. The Moultons, who live in Chenango Bridge, N.Y., drove 80 miles to Nesbitt Memorial Hospital in Kingston because Dr. William Hazlett, chief of obstetrics, permits fathers to deliver their babies.

It might save the lives of some kids who are making the drug scene and perhaps help their families face the problem honestly and objectively. Have you heard of the organization called "Families It is for families faced with a drug problem caused by children, brothers, sisters, spouses, or parents "F.A." is patterned after A.A. Any person who is living with an addict, a person he believes is playing around with drugs, or even a runaway child, should attend these meetings. The purpose of F A. is not to try and change the one on drugs (only that person can change but to help the family live comfor- tably and alter their reactions to the person with the problem. Believe me. Ann. it works. I was one of the lucky ones. I heard about F A. and went to a meeting that very evening. Our daughter. 16, was a runaway. The first thing I learned was to shut up and get off her back. Though she con- tinued to stay away from home, she remained in our neighborhood and kept in touch with us. Thank God she didn't hit the road and drop out of sight as so many kids do. I didn't preach or threaten or get the juvenile authorities (after her Many parents do this and it's a big mistake The authorities can do very little until a child has com- mitted a crime Our daughter finally decided, on her own. to stay home She quit school (with my permission) and got a job slinging hash at a neighborhood cafe But she s there every day. which is better than going to school, signing in and sneaking out at second period She has even started a bank account to save for a car. Things are not perfect far from it but they are a lot better. I'm still concerned when she's out with some of her weird friends, but I don t go running around the neighborhood at all hours looking for her and I've quit searching her room for drugs Best of all, I'm able to sleep nights without taking pills I've heard some tragic stories about people who have spent thousands of dollars on attorneys and hospitals for their kids, only to have the kids get back on the junk. One family I know spent almost When they didn't have any more money to spend and threw in the towel, their daughter then turned herself in to a self-help place run by former addicts She now has a good job. is off the stuff and had decided to stay in the group and help other addicts.

Hollywood. California Thank you A Friend Dear Friend: Here's your letter and thanks for writing I know it's bound to help a great many people. Dear Ann Landers: Never thought I. a grown male, would wind up on your couch, but here I am. We are expecting our first child in about eight or nine weeks. If it's a boy my wife wants to name him after me. This would make him Harvey Whitesides the Fourth (fictitious name, but the number is I have had it with the "Junior" bit and I want to break the chain for my son's sake. Ail my life I've lived in my father's shadow and I am doomed to this punishment as long as my dad is alive The confusion between us is a pain in the neck and the constant comparisons are a pain someplace else. I can't understand why my dad did this terrible thing to me. because his own father did it to him and he should have known better. I laid down a few rules: (1) No drugs in the house (2) Her addict friends are not welcome in our home (I didn't tell her she couldn't see them her choice of com- panions is her business, not mine (3) She is responsible for herself. If she gets into trouble, she has to get herself out. (And believe me. kids CAN get themselves out. once they know their parents won't pop for bail.) Now my wife wants to do it to OUR child and I say. "No way She has it in her head that there is something very classy about a fourth- generation name. 1 say it's a lot of garbage I want my son to have his own identity and it can start with a name of his own What do you think9 Whatchamacallit The Third Dear Whatch: Some Juniors and Thirds, Fourths and Fifths are very proud to be in the line-up. Others don't like the idea.
