Mother Teresa nominated for Nobel Prize

The nomination of Mother Teresa of Calcutta for the 1975 Nobel Peace Prize has been accepted by the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

According to a re'port in The Times, sponsors of the Catholic nun were Mrs Shirley Williams, Secretary of State for Consumer Protection: Mr Maurice Strong, executive director of the UN Environment Programme, and Lady Jackson.

In the letter nominating Mother Teresa the sponsors say that an increasing number of aid agencies "have reached the conclusion that the poorest and neediest peoples can be helped only by work done directly for and with them. Mother Teresa has been a pioneer of this approach for 25 years."
