Carpet industry hit by petroleum shortage TORONTO (CP) The shortage of raw petroleum feedstocks, the energy shortage, may affect your choice of color for a new carpet. Ian Boyd, vice-president of Burlington Carpet Mills, says 96 per cent of all carpet manufactured in Canada is made of synthetic fibres. Synthetic fibres such as nylon and polyester are derived from petrochemicals Inal Dollar for Dollar It's Your Best Laundry Buy!

In a release from Burlington, Mr. Boyd said carpet mills are already running short of nylon and polyester. He said mills may have to put out fewer color choices, and raise prices. "Carpet mills, depending on how secure they are about their supply of fibre, will make the decision to shorten color lines or not "A company that finds itself in short supply will cut certain colors. No one will stop making carpet in greens and golds or rusts, which are very popular. On the other hand, some companies will surely drop colors like plum, pink or even grey. "Prices will probably climb later in the year, as cost in- creases are passed on. Right now, carpet is a bargain for the customer." Chastity, not sex education needed in Catholic schools EDMONTON (CP) Sex education is based on humanism which is just another name for atheism, and it has no place in Roman Catholic schools, an American educationist said this week. Prof. William Marra of the department of philosophy at Fordham University in New York City, told about 100 people that sex education teaches things that are absolutely contrary to Roman Catholic teachings. Prof. Marra said there is one place only for sex in marriage. He denounced "the new theology" which, he says, goes against almost years of church teachings. He said sex education can not even be considered in Roman Catholic schools unless it is taught against a background of chastity and virtue. The school must not, for example, teach methods of artificial contraception "which are absolutely sinful" and write off the only method rhythm that is condoned by the church. The "pseudo-humanistic veil of Vatican H" has swept Christ out of the Roman Catholic Schools, he said, to be replaced by humanism and sexuality. An education in chastity would be one where the students meditate on moral virtues, they would know the saints, they would be directed toward "good" books and away from "bad" ones. Sex can be explained to the students as time goes by, he said. However, he warned against vividness he said, only serves to embarass many young people.

He said the "old" Roman Catholic concepts of marriage and sex were not repressive or MatejenttheorigiM tor Ha quote. cruel, as the modern mythology would have people believe. It didn't force people to feel guilty or "dirty." No Roman Catholic has ever any that sex was dirty or vulgar or wrong in itself, he said. However, it was wrong outside of marriage; it was wrong where perversions or sadism is involved, and it was wrong if driven by pure lust in the absence of love.
