12 t Continued rom page 1 church leaders from the Vatican, the Middle East and key Western nations in the allied coalition. In his opening talk at the summit, the pope said the Catholic Church -- which has only a small minority popula- tion in the Middle East and almost no direct political in- fluence in the region -- must respond "as a community of charity" to the devastation and divisions of the war. He said the church will work for "a just and durable peace" by urging resolution of the underlying causes of the region's turmoil. Among pressing Middle Eastern problems to be resolv- ed, he said, are the rights of Israel, Lebanon and the Palesti- nians, relief of foreign debt burdens, arms control and disarmament, international security guarantees, and dialogue and mutual respect among Christians, Muslims and Jews. Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran, in charge of Vatican The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana March 8, 1991 relations with governments, said the church would take a two-pronged approach to postwar reconstruction: foster- ing massive aid programs for the war's victims and engaging in diplomatic activity to pro- mote negotiated solutions to the region's problems. Before the summit opened, U.S. and Middle Eastern Catholic leaders focused on the same issues summarized by the pope. In a session with reporters in Rome March 3, several Middle Eastern patriarchs and a leading North African archbishop call- ed to the summit said that building a lasting peace in the region must include a solution to the Palestinian question, restoration of trust between the Arabs and the West, and aid to the Iraqi victims of the war. Iraqi Chaldean Patriarch Raphael I Bidawid described the massive allied air assault on Iraq as "genocide" and said his people are in dire need of aid. "The economic needs are enormous ....

I How GDuld Such A DumbBtrd Be SuchASmart Investment? How could a bird that would gaze.up at the rain until it nearly drowns or submerse its head in a water trough to keep from getting wet be anything but dumb? By being one of the smartest investments in Indiana and Illinois. , What makes Perdue's turkey program so smart is a guaranteed n'dnimum and more in bonuses. We're looking for a few good farmers in the area to help us raise superior but still unintelligent turkeys inside, where there minimal danger of the/r drowning. The program requires an average of six to eight hours 1 with the birds each day. It also requires someone to monitor them during the rest of the day. Even though the houses are mostly automated, any animal that could drown itself looking at the rain needs to be checked on. What it doesn't require is experience. Perdue has a flock of experts, including your own personal service- man who'll give you all the know-how you need to take care of these birds and to take care of any problems . or questions that come up. What Perdue's program offers you is a job that can keep you on your farm.fu11-time by providing you with stead; dependable paychecks that give you a positive cashflow from the ft day the birds arrive on your farm. That's a well thought.out program designed to bene- fit a few farmers as well as develop a superior bird to be marketed over the Northeast in citieslike New York and ,' Philadelphia. It's the same kind of program that's worked for more an 15 years to make us the leading brand of poultry and the leader in our segment of the agricultural indus W. ItS; a smart program.
