Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Boyle's column Wednesday, January 47, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - 27 By HAL BOYLE NEW YOBK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Tokyo, with an estimated population of 11.4 million people and claiming to be the world's largest city, is plan-ning to solve its housing crisis by the erection of apartment buildings ranging from 20 to 100 storeys. The latter would rise to a height of 1,150 feet. Guess what else cigarettes may do harmful to man. Reduce his-sex drive. A Soviet newspaper, citing what it describes as scientific evidence, says changes in sex hormones resulting from the effect of smoking on the blood notably reduces the sexual interest and performance of men over 40-even men of 30. Perhaps people at those ages should include more four-leaf clovers in their diet- if they insist on continuing to smoke. Since medieval tir^s those lucky symbols are supposed to have had the virtue of bringing mutual love to those who ate them together. AIDS COWS Tiny aids: It is wrong to think of all bacteria as harmful. They make possible the production of wine and vinegar, the turning of dead plants into topsoil, and heh> cows manufacture milk from grass. In our intestinal tract they even produce some of the vitamins we need. About 2.000 species are currently known, some so small that a million of them could sit on the point of a needle without discomfort. Signs of the times: This one is from the desk of Jules )Po-dell, owner of the Copacabana nightclub here: "The amount of sleep required by the aver-sge man is always one hour more." Worth remembering: "Few husbands these days get bombarded by cups and saucers -but most all of them are hit. hard now and then by charge piates." Folklore: A whistling woman brings bad luck. Never cut a loaf of bread or a quarter of butter at both ends. You'll have a quarrel if you pass a piece of bread with a fork to someone else at the table. Your prayers are more likely to be answered if you say them while kneeling at the side of the bed rather than at a corner of it. It was Cervantes who advised, "Patience-and shuffle the cards." Air race entries pour in LONDON (CP) - More than 200 applications have poured in for the London-to-Victoria air race, which will start July 1 from the RAF base of Abingdon in Berkshire, 607 miles west of the British capital. Two of the first firm entrants are women-British aviator Sheila Scott and U.S. flyer Margaret Mead of Los Angeles, twice winner of the annual trans-America women's air race known as the Powder Puff Derby. The 5,850-mile contest, a highlight of British Columbia's cen-t e n n i a 1 celebrations, is described by organizers as the third greatest air race in aviation history.

Bread and wine allowed at new RC communion OTTAWA (CP) - Small gatherings of Roman Catholics will be allowed to receive communion in the form of bread and wine starting next Monday, the Handles gun TOKYO (AP) - A hunting dog playing with his master's gun fired the weapon and injured the hunter seriously.

For centuries Catholics have received bread only at communion, but in 1970 Pope Paul allowed the hierarchy in each country to extend the right also to receive wine.

Leonard Sullivan of the national office for liturgy in a news release.

Father Sullivan said no gatherings need be omitted under guides laid down by the bishops.

Case brought ragedy and shame EXCELSIOR, South Africa (Reuter) - All charges were dropped today in an inter-racial sex case that brought' shame and tragedy, including one suicide, to prominent citizens in this sleepy little township. The case involved six white men and 14 African women in bizarre investigation under segregated South Africa's strict Immorality Act which bans all sexual relations between persons of different races. The plight of the white defendants, one of whom committed suicide rather than face rial, shocked South Africans and created consternation throughout the country. Although prosecutions under the Immorality Act number several hundred each year, the concentration of charges in this community of 700 persons fe-cused attention on the problem, WITNESSES BALK Charges against the five surviving white defendants and the African women, some of whom are reported to be mothers of light-skinned babies, were dropped because "it was clear that state witnesses were longer willing to give evidence,' the prosecution said in court today. . After the charges were dropped, Excelsior's mayor, An-dries Lombard, said that the people of the little township were relieved at the outcome. "They have believed from the start in the innocence of the people who were charged." Johannes Calitz. a 51-year-old town councillor liked and respected in Excelsior, shot himself while free on bail. He left a wife and son. The surviving defendants included Adam Bezuidenhout, a wealthy 42-year-old farmer and staunch defendant of the Afrikaner Nationalist party which created the Immorality Act. Another defendant moved his family out of Excelsior after being charged.
