They Said It!

I became vegetarian for the animals, but there were other unexpected benefits... I became more supple, which is important for an athlete... I love being vegetarian!
- Martina Navratilova, tennis champion

If you are studying or have studied the plays of William Shakespeare, you might find the following quote of interest. It comes from his play "Twelfth Night" and one of the characters Sir Andrew Aguecheek says these words:

Me thinks sometimes I have no more wit than a Christian or an ordinary man has, but I am a great eater of beef and I believe that does harm my wit.

Could this be the first literary reference to Mad Cow Disease?

and finally....

If a robin redbrest in a cage
Puts all heaven in a rage
How feels heaven when
Dies the millionth battery hen?
- Spike Milligan, author and scriptwriter

This is the first "Youth Page" for the magazine since the 33rd World Vegetarian Congress held in Chiang Mai, Thailand earlier in 1999. At the Congress, a new International Council (IC) was nominated. The "IC" consists of people from many countries of the world, aimed at giving vegetarians a truly global focus. These people discuss various vegetarian issues of international importance, and will report back to the next World Vegetarian Congress to be held in Canada in July 2000.

The names of the members of the "IC" are listed below, together with their countries. When you fnd their names and countries in this special word game check the box next to each letter. You will find the words reading across and down in the puzzle. Please note that each country is included in the puzzle only once, even if it is mentioned in the list more than once.
