Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ----------Solurdoy, Dtttmh-.. J3, 1 THt HEPAtO _ 3 Tnc Helping Handful for Korean children is go- ing U> SUCCtfc'j. It will take a miracle. But isn't that what Christ- mas is all abouWmiracles? Vr'e're over the in our drive to the goal. It send carloads of barley to Korea, compliments of the Unitarian Service Com- mittee and Canadians, to help the flood victims. Ron Peake of Lethbridge, formerly assistant di- rector of the Lethbridge Research Station, dropped into the Lethbridge Herald v.ith his gift and these words about his visit to Korea: "Over in Korea three years ago. Worked all over Korea. I sav.r many of the problems that Dr. Lotta Hilsc'nmanova speaks about. "It's a country about half the size ol southern Alberta v.'ith three' million people. "And 60 per cent of the land is mountainous and not useable for agriculture. They have to make every acre of land count. "Mostly they grow rice, winter barley and vege- tables like cabbages and turnips. people all work very, very hard. They are a congenial, mild-mannered people, very anxious to improve. "Seoul doubled its population in 10 years to four million people and they had very limited services for them. I "They are building one rnain highway from south to north.'There are all kinds of mountainous roads. "Seol is a city without lights at night because of the dancer of raids from North Korea. "Seoul Is onlv 40 miles from the border there. And there was an'11 p.m. curfew. the people were required to be off the streets by that time." Ron Peake was in the country for the Cana- dian government, co-ordinating a loan program for the development of Korea's dairy1 industry. So the government extends a helping hand and and we extend our helpings of good old Canadian barley for hungry children. Thanks, southern Albc-rtans, for your helping Dr. Lotta llitschmanova's relentless war on want, waged on behalf of helpless children the world over, has" won the trust and'support of more Uian half a million Canadian-. A_nd tho-j-.ar.ds of southern Albertans have joined, this Chrl.v.rna.s. in her wonderful work. to the young Koreans, "Auntie'' to chiVircr. in India, she energetically dedi- cates 16 hours a QEV to her cause. Last vear v.e in this r.ch land of southern Al- berta raised than S19.000. This was for Bangla- desh. Lest vear the Unitarian Service Committee, founded by "Dr. Hitschrr-snova years ago, raised. SWJ.fM in cash and S709.717 worth of goods -in-kind for 108 projects in 12 countries. V.'e are part of this grand work. V.'e don't get to see the smiles of gratitude. We don't get Vi hear the delighted Koreans, old and voung. "exclaim their joy when the barley sacks are opened. But v.e can rest in the knowledge that we help- ed feed some Korean flood victims i of 1972-73. If Dr. Hitschrnanova is the heart and inind of the USC, its lifeblood is the-array of Canadians, strong, whose affections she has a peculiar ability to touch. From a youngster dying of cancer comes a gift' "to buy four dinners for the children." A six-year-old with cerebral palsy sends SI to go to people v.'ho are "crippled too." An 81-year-old deaf trapper in Prince George, B.C., sends 8800, saying: "This money paid a debt. I was an orphan myself." Here in Lelhbridge, a lot of wonderful things arc happening too. Dr. Ralph Kuipers of the Downtown Lions Club brought S47 into the office, saying, "Your stories hit home so we raffled a bottle of wine." W. R. Cousins, president of the Alberta Teachers' Association, Lethbridge Local 41, brought S25 into The Herald office, saying' "This is the president's fund. I usually buy a gift for council members but this year it goes to Korea." Thanks so rnucb. But we're still fighting our way to that goal. Give us your hand. Lift us up and help us along the way. V.'e can do it, together. That's Helping Handful, Lethbridge Herald.
