A10 Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, December 11, 1976 Kissinger Urges 4 Restraint' To Prevent Wars At the news conference, Kissinger said "progress remains possible" in those talks. Turning to the Middle East, Kissinger said, "all of the parties have come to the realization that there is no military solution to their conflict and that some negotiated peace must be sought." Kissinger also said the United States strongly opposes any increase in oil prices by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which meets later this month in Qatar. ministers. NATO Secretary-General Joseph Luns said, "We in the alliance have been privileged to work with a man to whom the adjective 'great' can be applied with sincerity." Luns said he was convinced Kissinger will stand in history "as one of the most effective foreign ministers of our century." In London, Kissinger had meetings scheduled with Foreign Secretary Anthony Crosland and Ivor Richard, chairman of the Geneva conference on Rhodesia. freeze the membership of NATO and the Warsaw Pact. The rejection leaves the way open for Spain to join NATO, a move long advocated by the United States. Kissinger said at the news conference NATO has two tasks to improve its security to neutralize the growing Soviet strength and to work for peace. "In a nuclear age," he said, "there can be no question we have a direct responsibility to prevent any temptation on the part of those countries that continue to multiply armaments to believe that they can achieve political or economic solutions by the use of arms At the same time, he went on, "the future of world peace and perhaps the survival of humanity depends on whether, in relations between East and West, we can find a solution to our problems and a code of restraint lest we slide again, as has happened so often in history, to a series of miscalculations to seek the accumulation of marginal advantages and into, perhaps, an unimaginable catastrophe." Kissinger left with tributes from the other western BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) - Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, leaving his last meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), appealed yesterday for "a code of restraint" between East and West to keep the world from sliding into "an unimaginable catastrophe." Kissinger addressed a news conference following a two-day meeting of NATO foreign ministers, then flew to London to discuss the deadlocked Geneva conference on Rhodesia. . At the NATO meeting, the United States and its allies voted to reject a Soviet proposal that NATO and the Communist Warsaw Pact agree not to be the first to use nuclear weapons. A joint statement said the West must be free to use any weapon against an aggressor. . U.S. leaders distinguish between "first use" and "first strike" by many missiles in talking about nuclear weapons. First use might be defensive, they say, as in a nuclear land mine used against a tank advance. The western allies rejected a Soviet proposal to MI Caen GeZ Dti For (Mstoas aini M Veair lm m.

Bad roads and generally inadequate transportation frequently hampered delivery. In some cases, they found, the shipping procedures simply were unnecessary - nonfood items often could be bought locally. By sending goods from the United States the church sometimes was inadvertently depriving the local economy of needed business. Tom Kennel, who studied the Mennonite aid program in India, concluded: "Give a man bread, lie will remain a beggar. Teach him how he can solve his problems and he will regain his dignity." The Mennonites said they hoped their experiences would lead other organizations to make similar changes in their aid programs.

Vernon King, the local Mennonite aid director, first noticed the cans of beef chunks in natural gravy turning up in markets in this capital city. "The peasant sold his beef to buy grain so there would be more food for his family, and the market people purchased the beef, taking it to cities to be resold to more wealthy people who normally eat beef and could afford it," he explained in a report to Mennonite headquarters in Akron, Pa. "It was our problem," said Shank, "in that the food we disbursed was not appropriate." He said the church's Food-for-Work program virtually has been discontinued in Haiti. In the future, Shank said, the worldwide Mennonite aid program will concentrate its resources on helping people produce their own food and less on sending them prepared food or other commodities. The church distributed 21,600 of the 1-pound, 12-ounce cans of beef in Haiti during 1974-75. Its total aid to Haiti last year was $527,000, and worldwide the church spent $10.4 million on aid projects in more than 40 countries. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -Thousands of cans of beef chunks destined for poor drought victims ended up on store shelves in Port-au-Prince earlier this year. But it wasn't because the poor didn't get the food. The church that donated the food found the poor sold the meat for less expensive food, and this has caused the church to question whether its relief programs around the world are effective. The investigation by the Menno-nite Church Central Committee found that instead of eating the meat, the hungry families sold it for cash to buy larger quantities of rice, beans and corn, staples of their diet. Canned fish sent by the West German government met the same fate. The Mennonites do not fault the peasants, who received the food as payment for work. "It was the intelligent thing for them to do," said Gerald Shank, the committee's secretary for Latin America. "They could get five rations of rice by trading one ration of beef." But as a result of their experience in Haiti, and similar problems in other Third World countries, the Mennonites are taking a hard look at their entire international relief program. The peasants saw the beef as a Vance s lawn J Garden 3950 Pmehurst PALM BEACH GARDENS PGA Hardware 2480 PGA Blvd. STUART Choson Enterprises 305 So Albany Ave Stuorl Paint I Supply 3001 S Federal Hwy WEST PALM BEACH Hall Hardware 2750 S Dime Hwy.
