Spent 18 Months lu Africa CUSO Volunteers: Christianity Not A 'CluV By LEWIS LEVJBNDEL NAIROBI, Kenya Canadian University Service Overseas volunteers, Bob and Marylyn McRoberts, 18' months in Africa has been a revealing religious experience. Bob, 25, and Marylyn, 24, both teachers in Tanzania, have seen "how Christianity should be ap- plied." In the Western world Chris- tianity is not a way of life- it's merely the kind of "club" ones goes to, said Bob. "At home, more time is spent on the theology of Chris- tianity. Here we saw how Christ can be applied." 235 Abortions In B Months Say DBS Figures OTTAWA (CP) Hospitals in six provinces earned, out 235 therapeutic abortions in the first three months of this year, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Friday. The figure covered the six provinces that have established reporting procedures under last year's federal law. The provinces are Prince Ed- ward bland, Nova Scotia. New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Al- berta and British Columbia. A breakdown for each Province was not avail-ble. Last year's law allows thera- peutic abortion where a hospital committee certifies that contin- ued pregnancy will endanger the mother's health. An abortion caravan is sched- uled on Parliament Hill today to demonstrate for hospital abor- tions without any legal restric- tion. However, Prime Minister Tru- deau told the Commons Friday the government docs not intend to amend the law. SILENT CEREMONY A sign language wedding cere- mony was held in Dover Sun, to unite James Britts and Kathleen Quinn, deaf mute students from Milwaukee, Wis. The ceremony was translated as the minister recited the vows by use of hands. REGULAK DREAMS Dreaming occurs every night at regular intervals of approxi- mately 90 minutes. Ann H., Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am married to a Roman Cath- 'olic. Marie comes from a very devout family. She not only believes deeply in her religion, but she lives it. Marie's mother has decided to give her body to science after she passes away. She is' not a well woman and it could happen any day. Marie is against it. She claims it would be breaking the laws of the Church. Her mother says it doesn't seem reasonable. She feels this final act would be a genuine contribution to mankind. I've inquired of two local priests about the Church's ruling in such matters but my mother-in- law wants the word of a top-level church authority. Can you ask S. DEAR ROBERT: Will the President of Notre- Dame Uni- versity do? Father Theodore Hesburgh provided the following answer: "There is no prohibition whatever against giving one's body to science after death. In fact, doing so might be looked upon as an act of virtue, since it makes possible the training of medical students in anatomy. I have heard it is the custom in some Catholic medical schools for the students working on a body to offer a Mass at the end of the semester for the repose of the soul of the person whose body was used." DEAE ANN LANDERS: I am too ashamed to discuss my problem with anyone but I do need an answer. My husband is in his early 50's. We have a good marriage and have made a place for ourselves in the community. Our only child is a teen-ager. For the past several months my husband has been getting up 'an hour earlier than usual. He takes off his pajamas and walks around Hie house in the nude. I discovered this by accident. He is not aware that I know. I keep worrying that the boy might awaken early one morning and see him. Also, what if someone walks by the house and.sees him through a window? It would be scandalous. Is there something wrong with his mind? Why would a man do such a thing? I am concerned. He knows I am uptight about something but I can't bring myself to tell him what is bothering me. Please advise. H. F. U. DEAR H. F. U.: Peculiar? Yes. Pathological? No. Scanda- lous? Why? So long as your husband stays in the house and keeps the shades down I see no cause for alarm. If a teen- age boy sees his Father in the nude, so what? If you see him, so what? Let Nature Boy know lhat you are aware of his somewhat unorthodox ritual. You'll feel better once you discuss it with him openly. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I feel like a freak. I've been to [our doctors and have tried several medicines but nothing works. I'm plagued by back perspiration. It's worse when I am tense or anxious. It's awfully embarrassing to perspire right through my clothes. Sometimes when I come home from an evening out, I am soaking wet. Have you ever heard, of this? Do you know if anything can be done about field, N..J DEAR N..J: I've received and printed several letters from readers who suffer from hyperhidrosis. Many drugs (atropine derivatives) offer relief, but the side-effects in some cases cause other problems. If you've seen four doctors, see one more. Perhaps under his close observation you can hit on a o'rug or a combination of drugs that will solve your problem. todies' Auxiliary to She Fraternal Order of Eagles TEA and BAKE SALE Wed., May 13th--2 to 5 p.m. ADMISSION 50c DOOR PRIZE EVERYONE WELCOME MAY MAHKY AMSTERDAM (API Host- esses of KLM Itoyal Dutch Air- lines may marry while under five-year contracts but will be grounded and assigned to office work during the duration of any pregnancies. The couple of Protestant faith said they have had a chance in Tanzania to re-think their I'eli- gious views and become more practical Christians. "Materialism does not mean as much as before." remarked Marylyn. HEADING FOR HOME The quiet, soft-spoken couple want to settle in a small town on their return to Canada this summer. Marylyn, a native of Rich- mond Hill, Ont., and her Ottawa- born husband met in 1965 while studying at the University of Guelph, and were married in 1967. He was interested ill going to Africa by a former room-mate who had been there. Although Marylyn "took some convinc- the couple applied to CUSO and, were .promptly ac- cepted. They arrived in Tanzania in July, 1968, to live near Mwanza on the southern shore of Lake Victoria, Marylyn, with a bachelor of household science degree, has taught home economics, biol- ogy, domestic science, needle- work and English at a gill's boarding school while Bob. with degrees in science and teach- ing, has worked at a post-sec- ondary agricultural institute. They earn about the Cana- dian equivalent of each a year with free accommodation and health services supplied by the Tanzanian government. Local food items are cheap by Canadian standards, but im- ported goods like wax paper and cornflakes are expensive. Electric bills are high at about a month for a lightly- used water heater, iron, refrig- erator and lights. WANT OWN PEOPLE When asked about their treat- m e n t by the government, schools and students, the cou- ple who leave Tanzania in July considered their answers care- fully. The strongly nationalistic country now wants its own peo- ple to do the teaching, said Bob. "There is a slight resentment to Canadians because they have the csute skin color as their for- mer colonial masters." Tanzanians don't like outside experts and want to control the'r own future. Swahili is in the process of being introduced as the language of instruction. The McRoberts, as many oth- er Canadian personnel inter-- viewed in East Africa, found they were not able to get to Give Meaning To 7 Love You' fly BETTY CANARY long ago I sat talking with friends and the conver- sation turned to beautiful sounds, such as a baby's gurgle, a bird trilling early in the morning. And, as one would expect of .such a conversation, we finally came to the words, "1 love you." We agreed these words were the most beautiful sounds of all. Among us we knew "I love you" in French is "je in German, "ich Hebe in Spanish, "yo te in Italian, "io in Hebrew, "ani ohev otach." One man (he had looked them up for the history classes he teaches at the university) could say "I love you" in Arabic, Swedish and Turkish: "jag alskar dig" and "seiii he I suppose anyone, with just a bit of effort, could memorize three words in all languages. But, sometimes saying "I love you" isn't enough. Sometimes it isn't necessary. Every- one pays "I love you" countless times without ever verbalizing. It must be a sort of universal language. Saying, "I love you" is: Asking your mother-in-law for the family gingerbread recipe and then making the Bringing your wife coffee and the newspaper in bed not because it's Mother's Day or her but because. A parent taking the time to give a reason (or a list of reasons) when refusing a teen-ager's request and not insisting he merely accept a curt "because I say so." A mci'lier buying her son a new tie the day before he applies for his first job. A father saying, "Have a good time, when his daughter goes out with her date.

An aunt surprising a niece with a yellow duck made of a bright yellow sponge to go with it. know the Africans as much as they wanted to. Language prob- lems were the main reason. Marylyn hail difficulties with her students at school because of the separation of the sexes. A high rate of illegitimate births plagued the school. If a girl becomes pregnant, she is never allowed back into a gov- ernment institute. Bob told a story to illustrate African attitudes: "A student in a survey group called to another to hurry and bring the chain. The reply was: .'What's the rush. This is Africa.' "One has to have a lot of pa- tience in Africa."
