Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY. MAY THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PATSfc THREE Urges Restoration Food Rationing WASHINGTON.

Describing the food outlook in a broadcast. Mr. Anderson reported "every indication that, the -world food shortage will continue until the 1947 harvest."

DEW1TT MacKENZIE SAYS Collapse Simla Parley Brings Calamity Close Our bruised and battered world has come close to another calamity in the collapse of the round-table conference in Simla, but disaster has been at least postponed by the dogged determination of the Brit- ish and Indian representatives cot to abandon the quest this titae- The previous conference in 1942. when the British mission usder Sir Stafford Cripps weat out to India, ended m stark tragedy. Failure of the parley was followed by wide- spread disorders and bloodshed. At that time the conference was brought to a precipitous end when the following the Oriental custom of opposing an of- fer for bargaining ed the proposal somewhat brus- quely. The present British delegation says that the breakdown in Simla "does not in any way bring aa end to the mission." and Jawaharla! Nehru, president elect of the great All-Indian Congress, comments suc- cinctly that "the negotiations go on forever, but this particular confer- ence is ended." The conferees now have departed to think things over and see what further moves can be made. We are left to guess the cause of the Simla breakdown, but it may be assumed that it came as the result of the demand of the Moslem lea- gue, headed by the brilliant Ma- homed All Jianah, for a wholly in- dependent Moslem state FEAR HINDUS The Moslems want this because they fear the Hindus, who outnum- ber them 3-1. Oa the other hand, the All-Indian Congress, comprised of Hindus, has been equally insistent on the establishment of a federal government built along the lines of the United States. The British have supported the federal idea. Complete failure of the present negotiations would create serious potentialities for England, coming as it would in the midst of her efforts to safeguard her position in the Mediterranean in the face of Russia's thrust into this area. It would be doubly serious because of Britain's fresh troubles in Palestine and the sudden hardening of Egypt's demands that John Bull pull out of the country. ACTIONIRULES THE' PLAINS!

Shark finally gave In when Mexican ethnologists, headed by Dr. Avila Jimenez, visited them. The Mexican government, m turn, offered the Sharks, who are also known as the Tiburones, every as- sistance, in the way of food, domestic animals and agricultural 1 implements, toward perpetuating j their stock. "It was the same old Jimenez says. "They told us they wanted nothing. They would go on in their own wavs. single girl. for widow with one daughter, and 959 for a widow with two daughters. The daughters the woman brings her fiance, the I discovered, the more valuable she is since the husband may eventually j market them at z profit. The boy friend pays the money j to her parents." Dr. Jimenez re-1 ports- "For that reason girls have been highly valued among the Tiburones and they, have developed a matriarchal type of society. "The husband, however, may not sell his if he tires of her. Divorce is only by mutual consent. Otherwise the Sharks will ostracize "This means race suicide because they are rapidly dying out. partly because they are undernourished and partly because they refuse to marry outside of their own people and in-breeding is ruining them. We told them that. They merely shrugged their shoulders." The irife market, Dr. Jimenez says, has been as carefully regu- lated as'though the "W.P.T.B- con- trolled it. There were ceiling prices pesos or about for a They told us there were almost no divorces-since the husband con- sidered his wife a. valuable piece of property which might pay good dividends if she gave bsrth to daughter." The Tiburon men earn Mexican pesos by fishing for deep sea bass shark and marhn which they sell io companies which truck the sea food to Arizona and California cities. "To attract the men, the girls have developed a highly stylized art in facing the ethno- logist tells us. "They spend three to four hours every two or three days in painting designs on their the only canvases that they have. They obtain the colors from mineral and herb sources. Our Cosmetics "Barbaric" "Only the single girls are sup- posed to paint their faces but ui recent years most of the married women do, too. They, ironically, consider the face powder and lip- stick thai the Mexican and Ameri- can women put on their faces as very barbaric." Although there are more women than men. as a result of many years of warfare, the Shark women will not permit their men to engage in polygamy. "The men want to take more than one wife to add to their bank count in daughters but once when) they attempted it. the women drove them from Tiburon island. For' several months the men wandered on the mainland before the women permitted them to return and never since has the question of plural wives been brought up." Dr. Jimenez says that if the Sharks would take mates from. out-v side of their island, they might keep themselves from perishing as a people. "They stubbornlv refuse to do that." he said. "Ever since the Spaniards first came their way four centuries ago. they have fought civilization, clinging to their Stone Age with a desperation that is hard to explain.
