Friday, September 21, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -17 A bortion serious crime in Brazil RIODE JANEIRO (AP) Latin Americans have become mo-re receptive to birth control pills and vasectomies, say family planning experts in this Brazilian capital. Non-Latin backers of birth control have learned they can't force their ideas on pre- dominantly Roman Catholic Latin Americans, as they had been accused of doing in the past. Leading authorities in the world family planning move- ment ended three days of low- key discussions last week in Rio. at the annual Western Hemisphere meeting of the London-based International Planned Parenthood Federation. They urged more open dis- cussion of the pill, steriliza- tion and even once taboo in this part of the world because of religious, cultural and political beliefs. "There are five million il- legal abortions each year in Latin America, and at least one-third of them are com- plicated by infection or said Dr Ben- jamin Viel, the federation's Western Hemisphere di- rector. "No one seems to care about this. Yet a few people die of cholera in Italy, and the world mourns." "It's a shame that we've be- come accustomed to such a thing." the Chilean physician added. The meeting received little attention in Brazil, Latin America's biggest country, with a population of 100 million. Brazil's moralistic, military-run government is in favor of increasing the popula- tion and does not permit the press to promote or encourage birth control. Brazilian law considers abortion a crime as serious as murder. The foundation is the world's foremost, birth control organization. Sup- ported by government funds in some regions and private donations in others, it operates in 102 countries. There even is a foundation affiliate quietly working in Brazil. The government allows it to circulate birth control information by word of mouth but forbids it to publicize its activities. "I'd bet that 80 per cent of the members of Brazil's Congress are in favor of birth Congressman Ivan told the meeting. "We think it's just a matter of a very short period of time, by the way until Brazil adopts birth control as an official policy." The current government, under which congress has no independent power, contends, however, that Brazil needs more people to fill its vast open as the Amazon jungle.

Canadian views overthrow TORONTO (CP) A Cana- dian woman, in the midst of some of the fighting in Chile 4ast week that led to the over- throw of President Salvador Allende, reports "one hearse after another being taken to the cemeteries." In a weekend telephone call with a Toronto organization known as the Latin American Working Group, she described how she saw "truckloads of corpses military and just thrown in trucks like sacks of potatoes." The organization, with close contacts with leftist groups supporting President Allende, did not disclose the woman's name, saying only that she was from St Anthony, Nfld and married to a Chilean un- iversity professor. However. she is known to be a teacher and a graduate of the univer- sity of Toronto. She said the military ap- peared at the University of Chile, where both she and her husband worked, and the cam- pus was evacuated. "Since then nobody has been able to get in or out. I think there is nobody inside. "It's a campus where the lettist forces were quite strong so I doubt that it will be opened again." She added leftist radio sta- tions were not broadcasting and only armed forces stations were being heard. It is hard to get information about the true state of affairs in the country, she said. Broadcasts were mainly "an awful lot of propaganda trying to get people to go back to work to bring the country back to normal."

Dear Ann Landers: I am 5 feet 10 in my stocking feet, which is pretty tall for a girl. During my adolescence I felt like a gira'ffe. but Mom kept at me to stand straight and be proud of my height. Even though I was taller than most of the boys in my classes, it never bothered me much I'm not going to ask the ob- vious to do about a short boyfriend (my sweetie is and he has a great The problem is that whenever I go where there is music, every short guy in the place rushes over and wants to dance with me I feel rediculous with those sawed-off runts who seem to enjoy resting their heads on my bosom. (I feel like a nurs- ing mother.) How can I get out of it without offending the half- Shasta Dear Shasta: Where's your sense of humor? If those shor- ties didn't think you were a real doll they wouldn't ask you to dance If THEY feel com- fortable about it, consider it a warm compliment and eniov the fun. WteeWhimsy Dear Ann Landers: You've let waitresses sound off, as well as sales clerks, secretaries, bosses, customers just about everybody Now it's my turn. In many small cafes "it isn't possible to have an automatic dishwasher, so the job is done by real, honest-to-goodness, live people Any dishwasher will tell you that'if he turns his back for a few minutes the dishes multiply like rabbits. Most dishwashers get the same salary as waitresses but no tips I realize it isn't prac- tical to suggest that people go to the kitchen and tip the dis- hwasher, but I DO have a few suggestions that would make our lives a lot easier Use ashtrays Don't mash your cigarettes or cigars into the leftover food. It makes a terrible mess. Don't put chewing gum on your plate It's murder to get off if another plate is stacked on top of it. Don't put crumpled paper napkins in a plate that has syrup or honey on it. It sticks like glue If you ask a waitress to wash a thermos jug or a baby's bottle, the dishwasher is the one who will be doing it Give HIM the dime or whatever.
