The Hiblc has many passages on one famine after another. Food was so scarce in ancient Athens lhal visiting ships had lo share the food they had on board with Ihe ci(y. The Romans prayed al Olympus for food. Kvcry generation in medieval Europe has suffered f a m i n e . The poor ale cats, dogs, and the droppings of birds. And when worst came to worst, some mothers ate Iheir children. In our c e n t u r y , extreme hunger drove some of the Soviet population to cannibalism. As late as 19«, floods destroyed so much of liengal's crops lhal deaths from starvation reached up inlo Ihe millions After World War II it sccmccl lhat man was winning his bailie against hunger. There were bumper h a r v e s t s in m a n y nations. Then, in just the past two years. Ibis optimism turned sour as hunger and famine struck hundreds of millions of Ihe world's population in -10 different nations. Almost half a billion of the world's population is suffering from some form of hunger. 10,MO die every week ip Africa, Asia and l.alin America. There are food shortages in the countries of Chad, Gambia, M a l i , M a u r i t a n i a , Senegal. Students explore tunnels Cppcr Volta, Niger, Ethiopia. India. Hanglaclesh and Kaslern B r a z i l .

To help catch the lliicves. retailers are rigging new alarm systems, hiring more security people, and installing more two- way mirrors and closed-circuit television systems. Many companies resort to lie- detector tests lo keep employes honesi. Al least one department store has hired a reformed shoplifter as a "consultant" w i t h "fantastic" results.
