Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, June 12, 1974 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friends have helped Mattie Morrison since fire destroyed her home next to an SLA hideout. Lost all her belongings., pets Church becomes home after fire LOS ANGELES (AP) Tommy Howard sat outside the ruins of the house where Cinque and five other Symbionese Lib- eration Army (SLA) members died last month in a Shootout with police. "Every little'tit helps'' read a poster behind him. He shook a glass jar which held coins and a few rumpled dollar bills. He was collecting money for Mattie Morrison. She was inside a white Baptist church 90 feet away, lying on a rumpled couch. A pink stucco house where she lived for 20 years was next door to the SLA hideout. Fire erupted when a police bullet apparently hit a firebomb inside the SLA house. Flames spread to her home. Now she lives in the church. She mourned for her three pet mongrel dogs, killed in the fire. "I lost everything, that's she said. "I lost my three dogs, and that's the worst." Howard, a friend, is trying to help her. Both are in their early 50s. Many residents still are angry when they look at the aftermath of the Shootout. Rich countries demand too much of food supplies "If this had been in Beverly Hills or North Hollywood, the police wouldn't have done what they did said Freddie Boyd. "They started shooting up the neighborhood without warning any of the people. If someone had been killed, all they could do was say they were sorry." More than in claims have been submitted by resi- dents to the city attorney's office. Mrs. Morrison isn't sure yet what she will ask in compensation. Tears began to streak down her face as she recalled the tragedy. After police carried her from the home, "I started crying for my she said. "I knew there was no way they could get out." Pot-pourri UNITED NATIONS (AP) A new United Nations study says that food supplies are being strained not only by population growth in the poorer countries but by rich diets in the richer ones. An Indian. Nigerian or Colombian gets along on 400 pounds of grain a year. But a Canadian or American consumes almost a ton of grain of it converted into meat, milk and eggs. People in such countries should "reduce the demands they place on world food re- sources." the report says, suggesting that vegetable- based protein be substituted for animal protein. "Food technologists now can compress soya fibres into meat form, and with appropriate flavoring and coloring, come up with nutritious substitutes for beef, pork and poultry." the study says. the UN report entitled World Population and World Food Supplies: Looking Ahead was written by Lester Brown, senior fellow of the Overseas Development Council in Washington, for consideration at the August UN world population conference in Bucharest. Romania. "Worldwide. population growth is still the dominant source of expanding demand for food." the studv savs. "With world population expanding at nearly two per cent per year, merely maintaining current per- capita consumption levels will require a doubling of food production in little more than a generation." But there is "only limited scope" for expanding cropland, the report says, and there is difficulty in boosting productivity of the land now under cultivation because fertilizer and farm machinery fuel costs more. "The world now is in a situ- ation of extreme the study says, for the following reasons: grain stocks this year are expected to be only 89 million metric tons or 27 days" supply, the lowest since the Second World War. drought in Canada and the U.S. is "quite possible dur- ing the current decade." world fish catch has dropped eight million tons in -three years. grazing land is turning into desert, largely be- cause of overgrazing and defo- restation, at an estimated rate of 30 miles a year. The report says floods will increase in Pakistan. India and Bangladesh, "undermining the food producing capability of the subcontinent on which nearly 7-50 million people now depend." Tau Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi. recently held its annual birthday party at the home of Irene McDonnell. Guests of honor were Liz Schroeder and Deanna Peacock. Perfect attendance awards were presented 'to Barbara Marshalsay, Liz Schroeder, Judy Williams, Rai Hogg and Virginia Hoopfer. Helen Holt and Deanna Peacock received the award for best program of the year. Captain Ron Butcher of the Salvation Army was guest speaker at a meeting of the Women of the Moose, at which time he was presented with a cheque for the future Bridge half-way house. Capt. Butcher spoke on the proposed program for the house, and other donations made by the women's group went to the Canadian Institute for the Blind, cancer fund, heart foundation.

"I guess the age of miracles is not said another. The doctors were among a group of Ontario physicians attending a three-day course in acupuncture sponsored by Wellesley Hospital and the Acupuncture Foundation. of Canada. The introductory course is designed to give doctors enough knowledge of the ancient Chinese medical art to permit them to treat simple headaches, backaches, some allergies and other minor ailments. Dr. Elie Cass. vice- president of the Acupuncture Foundation, said so many physicians applied for training that the foundation had to offer four separate courses instead of the one planned. Toronto anesthetist Dr. Edward Sheffman was one of three doctors on whom Prof. Y. King Liu of Tulane University in New Orleans demonstrated acupuncture. Dr. Sheffman suffered a whiplash injury eight years ago which has since caused sever pains in his neck, shoulders, back and head. "I feel a profound effect spreading through my whole body it's beautiful." Dr. Sheffman said as Be sat with needles sticking out of his toes, legs and hands. Doctors cannot charge for acupuncture treatment. Dr. Elie said. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario considered it experimental and therefore does not permit payment. LARGELY CATHOLIC Roman Catholicism is the largest single religious denomination in Canada, comprising 45 per cent of the population.
