VG, 
A procedure can only RETURN 1 value. 
Think of a procedure as a data type, since a variable can only be one
data type, a procedure can only be 1 data type.

That said, there is a way to get around it.  If you have need to
multiple values manipulated in a called procedure then the modified
values returned, either define those variables as global or pass the
parm by reference.
