Here is good advice if you seek a long life By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) People who have lived to advanced ages often are asked how it's done. To what habits or rules do they attribute their long life? They offer a potpourri of prescriptions, religious and otherwise. A collection of them was as- sembled in a recent issue of the Immortality Newsletter, a bi-monthly roundup of anti- death research and thought published in San Carcos, Calif. It reports there currently are about 12.000 Americans who have lived more than 100 years, and presents this sam- pling of some of their formu- las for achieving such longev- ity: e 1 i e v P in God. Pray daily." "Have a free mind. Don't fall for religious bunk." "Never drink alcohol." "Drink a pint of whisky per day." "Read the Bible." "Read spicy detective sto- ries.' "Get plenty of exercise.' "S h u n physical activity. Conserve your energy.' HOW ABOUT SLEEP? "Get plenty of rest. Sleep 10 or 12 hours per day." "Never sleep over four hours per day.' "Sleep v.ith your feet pointed south, so that mag- net i c vibrations from the north will pass through your body and out through your feet, ordering and harmoniz- ing all systemic functions in the "Sleep with your feet pointed north, so that rnag- n e t i c vibrations from the north will pass upwards to your brain, with rejuvenating effect." "Abstain from meat, eating only raw fruits, vegetables and nuts.' "Eat a pound of lean meat every day.' "Abstain from dairy prod- ucts." "Eat only eggs, butter, milk and cheese.' "Drink plenty of water.' "Never drink water. 'A lit- tle wine for thy stomach's sake'." "Smoke a corncob pipe con- tinuously." "Chew a plug of tobacco per day.' "Avoid tobacco in every form.' LOVE OR LEAVE 'EM "Abstain from sex." "Have plenty of sexual ac- tivity." "Get plenty of sunshine. It is the source of all energy and health." "Avoid sunlight. It causes cancer." "Be at peace with yourself and all men." "Be ornery. Have at least one good fight with somebody every day." "Don't cater to your appe- tites and whims. Observe strict self-discipline. Don't ex- pect life to be too great, be- cause it isn't. Prepare for the worst and you'll never be dis- appointed." "Do what you want, when jou want it. Sleep when you're tired and rise when you're rested. V.'orry about nothing, think have some fun." A. Stuait Otto, editor of the newsletter, comments: "Take your choice. Just don't try them ail at once." Signposts When the day of reckon- I ing arrives, many hidden things will be revealed. For some it will be a day when the good Lord unveils the efforts made to point men along the path of life. Cap- tain Ron Butcher, Leth- bridge Salvation Army of- ficer, recently discovered this sign during basement renovations at the Thrift Shop. Does anyone recall the Grace and Glory Mis- sion program in Lefh- bridae? Vatican's UN 4eye' a down-to-earth man UNITED NATIONS (AP) A down-to-earth priest with a fancy for home-made lasagna is the Vaticans eye at the United Nations. Occasionally. Rt. Rev. Al- berto GiovannetU, 59, puts aside the burdens of diplomacy to en- joy pasta with an Italian plumber and his mother in Brooklyn. Tin's started when the plumber, fixing a radiator in Msgr. Giovannetti's quarters, invited him to dinner. The stocky, friendly cleric has become a familiar figure at UN headquarters since Pope Paul named him in 1964 as the Holy See's first permanent Ob- server to the world body. Church Chuckles by CART WRIGHT 1229 A talk with him brings out a blend of idealism and no-non- sense realism. you have the UN and try to improve it, or you have political chaos, internationally speaking, a political Msgr. Giovannetti says. RIGHTS NOT ENFORCED He is unhappy about the treatment of human rights, however. "They haven't progressed at all in the field of implementing the human rights they defined so clearly, so forcefully" in dec- 1 a r a t i o n s conventions and treaties, Msgr. Giovannetti says. "There is no machinery to implement." The Holy See favors the crea- tion of a high commissioner who could bring pressure to bear for protection of human rights. The plan, stalled by Communist and Arab represen- tatives, is due for debate again this year. Msgr. Giovannetti sends dis- patches to the Vatican by pouch once a week and goes to Rome at least once a year to report personally to the Pope. He went to Panama in March to observe the Security Councils Latin American meeting. On the Middle East, Msgr. Giovannetti says "we would prefer to have Jerusalem inter- but failing that. "we ask that the holy sites be given international status." He cited as models the Vati- can and four major basilicas in Rome. Assumption slarve-a-tlion aids missions About 50 at As- sumption School. Lethbridge, recently participated in a 24- rour starve-a-thon, raising about fo- missionary work in the process. "The chief purpose of the project was to enable our Grade 6 students to exper- ience what it means to be hungry, teacher Harold Ni- cholson explained. Food was restricted to one half-pint of milk, two cookies and fruit juice served every four hours. A program of films, games and Christian v.'crkship occupied the parti- pating students.
