IN NORTH SUMATRA, 50 women lost their huts when the government condemned them as substandard. Mad as bees; the women latched onto a dramatic way to protest.

"HOW'D I DO IT?" asked Leonard. "Boy, it wasn't easy. I tightened up on the intake valves. It was rough, man, rough!" LEONARD CUT his daily intake down to one boiled egg and a slice of bread for breakfast, two boiled eggs for lunch and three pitiful ounces of meat for dinner, "IT WAS MURDER," he said, "especially for an Olympic champ eater like me.
