Americans skip meals to help feed hungry WASHINGTON (AP) Thousands of Americans voluntarily went hungry Thursday in a daylong fast to raise money to feed the world's hungry. Some people said they will make skipping meals a regular practice. Crop failures, bad weather, rising prices and population in- creases have created a world food shortage that threatens more than half a billion people in more than 30 countries with death from starvation. Thursday's fast, sponsored by Oxfam-America, was one of several programs organized in response to calls for people in affluent countries to eat less in order to prevent widespread famine. It drew its greatest support on college campuses, although seeral church groups also have urged their members to have one meatless meal a week or fast completely on a specified day. Oxfam, a Boston-based group that is the U.S. branch of the Oxford Famine Relief Committee in Britain, asked people to contribute the money they normally would spend on food to a fund for the hungry.

IAMB policewoman was not being considered in the escape Nov. 7 of an attempted murder and rape suspect. Mr. Boyer, in an interview after reading a report on the escape prepared by Acting Police Chief Jack Moore, said there would not be any dis- ciplinary hearing. Investigation establish- ed there was a com- munications break-down within the courthouse whereupon RCMP officers were not aware that they might be required, Mr. Boyer said. The policewoman was not, on duty and came forward to volunteer services when RCMP couldn't be found, he said. MADE AN ERROR She made one error in not handcuffing the suspect. Mr. Boyer added the policewoman decided to es- cort the prisoner to cells herself only after repeated ef- forts had been made to summon and locate an RCMP officer. The man, being escorted from the law courts building to city police jail cells after a bail application ordered him returned to custody, pushed the officer down, and made his way to his car where, earlier, he had hidden a rifle. The man was captured Nov. 9 on a farm outside Odessa. Sask.. about 40 miles southeast of Regina, following an 11-hour police seige.

He said he receiv- ed a memorandum in December, 1973, warning that all attempts to restrain egg production had failed and that the outlook for 1974 was for big surpluses. Mr. Whelan told committee members it was "not humanly possible" for him to read thor- oughly every report crossing his desk and that he does not have the budget to hire enough staff to review and distiii ail the documents he receives. Allan Lawrence (PC- Northumberland Dur- ham) reminded Mr. Whe- lan that he had blamed egg processors, provincial marketing boards and the LION MAULS CHILD FORT LAUDERDALE. Fla.
