Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbtidge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, March 24, 1973 Pages 29 to M A HASSLE OVER HUMPS: Anyone want to buy a good used camel? The supply and demand may not be all they used to be, bull if you're in the market, Cairo is still the place to shop irlereaitn INSURANCE IS JUST NOT PART OF. OUR BUSINESS -IT IS OUR ONLY BUSINESS Phone 327-3009 CONN VAN HORNE JACK WARBURTON 507A 7th STREET SOUTH By TOM TIEDE CAIRO (NBA) For near- ly years the beast has been the Arab's constant companion, his alter ego, his link with lite. Nomads used the animal's meat for nourishment, its skin tor clothing, its hair for Hie woven fabric of shelter, its dung for fuel. Even the urine, since Nefertitl was a pimply teen- ager, had been collected as a peculiarly sweet-smeiling insect repellent and hair tonic. No more. Today the camel, that "intricate and prodi- gious" creature of T. E. Law- rence lore, has long since given way to the piston en- gine. Modern Bedouin tribes prefer Jeeps. Natives who rough it now do so on Arab- aan steeds. In Egypt's populated areas the only thing the dromedary Is as good as ever for any more is to trigger the tourist camera. Still, there remains a mar- ket for the extraordinary ani- mal here. SMUGGLERS Farmers continue to use the camel as an ox, smug- glers still believe it is an im- portant vehicle for Illicit trade, aid police also ac- quire hundreds of the "desert ships" annually to enforce the law (one official use of the camel is to deal with the smugglers, some of whom have been known not only to ride the animals but also to hide their goods in the beast's large, thus poster- ior-. So it is that the ancient and legendary Cairo Camel Market, history's prototype for the used car lot, is si ill in business. Located on a re- mote fringe of town, hidden behind a maze of mud-brick walls, but "smelling the same as it did in the days of the the market contin- ues to attract what one ob- server feels are "the most magnificent camels and' ar- gumentative merchants in all of Arab Africa." The camels are Imported from the Sudan, Some of them make the 60-day trek from Upper Egypt to Cairo each year. Froth foaming out of their mouths, the painted identity marks on their bodies run- ning from sweat, they arrive with lime to rest.

A frequently asked question in this context is: "Should we take the child to the funeral? According to the Rev. Fxiga Jackson, who has written on religion and psychological ex perience, "Children love a pa rade, and a funeral Is a priyati family parade from the deal bed to the hole in the ground or crematorium." Professionals generally agree U UN child ii old understand what is taking place, e should be offered the oppor- unity to take part in the cere- mony marking the end of the fe of a person who was close him. Grief Like the adult, the child has need to work through his grief and anxieties. He should hare his feelings, both post ive and negative, about the de- ceased with the family. His rec- ollections of the dead persoi should be encouraged as shouli >articipation in discussions with .he family about the future. Neither children nor adults can grieve normally withou such an outward expression o sorrow as well as ihe sympathy support and understanding others. "The Victorians may we have terrified children wit their realistic descriptions dying and death and with-the: details of God and of hell an says British pediatn clan Dr. Simon Yudkin, "bi we allow them to be terrific by our secrecy and by our pr vate and often furtiv misery.' NEXT: "Nmtl OrieT most immediately the mer- chants, who come from throughout Egypt, begin hag- gling. The weary beasts groan and gurgle and the .buyers- sellers argtie to the point of desperation. Tempers flare. Dust is kicked up. It Is one of the oldest forms of bar- .eriflg in the world. Because of his endurance, he camel remains important merchandise In Egypt. Ninety-six per cent of the [and is too barren to trust any other form of transpor- ition. Says Sudanese camel trad- er Abdul Dehim Mossra: "A good truck costs or more and lasts maybe five- six years. A good camel costs one-fourth that much and lives for 20 years." Besides, there is the an- dent attachment: "If noth- ing says the trader, "a camel owner has 200 pounds of potential meat." To be sure, camel owners" and merchants take a blunt- ly realistic approach to their beasts. ARGUMENTS Arguments flourish In tha trading. Fists sometimes fly. Occasionally a buyer or sell- er, winds up with a knife in the leg. Then there was the time one frustrated merchant wound up on the short end of a deal with a fellow trader and was so humiliated he shot the camel iu the foot and himself to (lie head. The story Is he meant to do It the other way round but all day in the market left him fatally confused. Usually, though, the mar- keting is more orderly. ATTENTION!
