Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHBHIDOE HERALD 5, 1 1 1 World food supply improves sharply j MOTHES H4S WORMS By WILLIAM BOBBINS New York times Service WASHINGTON The world food supply picture has improved sharply in the last two months, most notably for India. This changed picture has emerged from interviews with government officials and other experts here and from data from United States and United Nations sources. While the food gap in the deficit nations will still amount to millions of tons between now and June 30 and untold numbers of lives con- tinue to be threatened by malnutrition, several countries that faced the most serious problems when the world food conference met in Rome in November have succeeded in contracting for large parts of needed supplies. Many of the arrangements are still in the form of com- mitments yet to be shipped, but agriculture officials say the food is moving smoothly. India, for example, is reported to be receiving all the grain her ports can handle, and her officials are optimistic about the spring harvest. The remaining food gap worldwide is at least- three million tons, an unofficial tabulation of data from governmental and UN sources indicates. This compares with a generally accepted estimate of 7.5 million tons at the end of November. Experts emphasize that much of the improvement has come from costly purchases on commercial markets, en- tailing referment of develop- ment needs with possibly serious consequences. They also emphasize that additional needs will continue beyond June 30, the end of the current crop year. Meanwhile, the availability of American food for export to the needy nations has im- proved, though financing remains a problem. Elective surgery higher in Alberta OTTAWA (CP) Nearly twice as many "elective" sur- gical operations are done per capita in Alberta as are done in -Newfoundland, a newly- published study shows. And the reason seems to be that more doctors and hospital beds are available in Alberta than in New- foundland, it says. The findings, based on 1968 statistics, are contained in a study by Dr. Eugene Vayda and Gary D. Anderson published in the Canadian Journal of Surgery. They show that in elective not necessary to save the patient's life but carried out at the discretion of the doctor and had operations per pop- ulation, compared to per in Newfoundland. The Alberta rate, highest in the country, is 1.9 times the Newfoundland rate, which is the lowest. Over-all, the data from all provinces suggest "a close relationship between provin- cial ratios of surgeons and elective and discretionary surgical the study says. "The implications for plan- ners seem the writers say. "If hospital beds are available, they will be used. If there are more doc- tors doing surgery, more elec- tive and discretionary surgery will be done. The writers say further study must be done to deter- mine whether the findings in- dicate that too much surgery is being done in Alberta or not enough in Newfoundland. Reasons for resorting to surgery, treatment styles .and the outcome for the patient of various treatment decisions would have to be examined. The study shows there are also variations from province to province for non- discretionary surgery, although the differences are smaller. BIRD MARKET ON SUNDAY For six days of the week, the Grand Place in Bniudi, Belgium, is a food market in tne mornings, a flower (irdm in the afternoon. On Sunday it is transformed into a bird market. "We have more wheat available now, and it's moving Richard E. Bell, a deputy assistant secretary of agriculture, whose respon- sibility is foreign trade, said in an interview. The Texas winter wheat crop, which will become available in May, looks good, he added. The easing of the situation is largely a result of economic decline and softening world demand, the experts say, with the biggest factor the reduced use of livestock feed lots in the United States. India and Bangladesh are classed by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization as having the most serious shortages, but if U.S. estimates are accurate, each has obtained all but about tons of the deficit. The F.A.O. lists 30 other countries as suffering from lesser shortages, while one, Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, is listed as being in danger of a shortage. The designations are in a restricted report circulated to member governments under an early warning system adopted at the food conference. At that time Sri Lanka was included with Indi-a, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Tanzania as the countries regarded as suffering the most serious shortages. COLEMAN, Fla. (AP) Margaret Lipps says she feels like a foster mother when she sits up at night with her earthworms, feeding them special vitamins. "It's a day and night, seven-days-a- week job, just like caring for a she says. Mrs. Lipps, a veteran worm picker of 15 years, and Harold, her husband, operate the Shady Oak Worm Farm In Central Florida. The couple has two five-foot-wide, 80- foot-long worm beds, each a home for about worms. The worms require a daily feeding of about 125 pounds of special vitamin- packed worm food similar tp the grain mash fed chickens. Sears Choose any two of these shirts and save!
