LONG SAO PAULO (AP) Brazil- ian voodoo shops are bringing the country's folk religion up to date businesswise with mass-produced merchandise that leans heavily to plastics and hard-sell packaging. They offer traditional chants on long-playing records. Ritual potions come in plastic bottles. Many of the products are patented. Sao Paulo, a booming indus- trial metropolis with the latest in freeways and skyscrapers, if sprinkled generously with stores that cater to the followers of Macumba, Candomble and Umbanda. Those are centuries-old voodoo faiths that combine Roman Catholicism with African lore brought to South America by slaves. One of Sao Paulo's newest voodoo shops, the Caboclo Guaraciaba Umbanda House, is six blocks from the 43-floor Italia Building, the city's tallest structure. Marcos Antonio Garcia, 15, plays' rock music records while he minds the store for his mother and aunt, the owners. But Garcia doesn't hesitate to put on a voodoo record for a potential customer. "We have liquids for baths to take away Garcia Plungers offered disposable robe TORONTO (CP) And now, a disposable baptismal robe. It's called Bapto, and ad- vertisements describe it as "the new, convenient dis- posable baptismal add- ing that it is opaque, non-re- vealing, water-repellent and fireproof. It's produced by an eccle- siastical goods firm in the United States for churches that, perform immersion bap- tisms, but is not available in Toronto. "We in Toronto always lag behind the United States in such technological and manu- facturing said the proprietor of one store deal- ing in religious merchandise. The kit includes a small cloth to keep water put of the nose during immersion, a dis- posable paper towel with which to dry oneself and a plastic container in which to put everything after the cere- mony. There is also a New Life Baptistry, a tank for baptism by immersion, which comes complete with seat-holds and toe-holds. The tank also contributes to ecology, its manufacturers say, because it uses less wa- ter than traditional baptismal gallons. And there's more: "A picture window on the congregational side allows a clear view of the candidate." UCW introduces group approach said. They come in green, amber, red and blue, at 50 cents per plastic bottle. Customers may select from Bath to Open the Way, Bath to Attract Money, Defence Bath, Key to Love and many others. COMPETITION BRISK Garcia's aunt, Mrs. Nair Scares Leite, said the store has been doing well since it opened in June, despite competition from 10 other voodoo shops 'in the neighborhood. She said believers shop around the stores looking for their favorite religious items. A Catholic priest estimated recently in a church study that 60 per cent of Brazil's 100 mil- lion people are voodoo follow- ers, while only 25-30 per cent of the country's 90 million- plus Catholics actively practice that religion. One of the specialties in Mrs. Leite's store is a versatile stock of powders, in commercially printed boxes, for casting spells of love, jealously, peace or disunity. On other shelves are pa- perback prayer books and ritual manuals that cost around S3 each. Mass-produced "miraculous holy medals" come in slickly printed four-color covers that say the patent is pending. The recommended retail crice is More old-fashioned items in the store include pottery con- traptions for burning herbs. Shelves of Umbanda painted plaster St. George on a white horse, Indians White Feather and Seven Arrows, Buddha, and Jesus. Prices are and depending mainly on the size. Hanging over the saints and herb burners are traditional voodoo necklaces of shells, tusks and carved wood. Beside them are more modern neck- laces of bright red, yellow and blue plastic beads. The finish Sallyann Faulkner, 16, crosses Pancake Day finish line at Olney, England. Girl, 169 sets race record OLNEY, England (AP) Sallyann Faulkner, a 16-year- old schoolgirl, won the annual pre-Lent Buckinghamshire Pancake race this week but the crowd-pleaser was a 52- year-old grandmother of five from Liberal, Kan. Virginia Leete was the first American to compete in the 500-year-old event. For the past 25 years, Mrs Leete's home town of Liberal has run a simultaneous race with Olney and this year she and her husband, Rodney the former mayor of Liberal, were guests of honor in the English town on Shrove Tuesday. Clutching a borrowed skillet, Mrs. Leete received a huge cheer as she flipped a pancake along the 415-yard race to a second-to-last finish. "I'm delighted I managed to finish at she said. Winner Sallyann Faulkner, a school 200-metre champion, completed the S-shaped course along the main street fo St. Mary's Church in a British record time of one minute, one second. Tradition says the race began 500 years ago when an Olney housewife was making pancakes and heard the bells ring for the service at St. Mary's. She ran tossing a pancake in the skillet to get to church on time. WON'T BAN EXORCIST BOSTON (AP) Municipal court Judge Theodore Glynn ruled Wednesday that the movie The Exorcist is neither blasphemous nor obscene. He dismissed complaints brought by a woman, saying. "I have viewed the picture and ruled that it does not meet the guidelines of obscenity as laid down by the U.S. Supreme Court."
