Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, April LETHBRiDQE Social workers needed EDMONTON (CP) Alberta doesn't have enough well trained social workers, Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely says. Mr. Miniely told a meeting of the newly formed College ol Clinical Social Work that there needs to be greater recognition outside the profession of the need for definite standards of practice for social workers. The development of more and better trained counsellors should be encouraged. Rev. William Irwin, vice president of the college, said the organization would welcome close involvement with the older and larger Alberta Association of Social Workers.

Competition bill iws criticism dra TORONTO Canadian daily newspaper publishers say a clause in the federal government's competition bill gives the Restrictive Trade Practices Commission "a dangerous and important concentration of power unequalled by any other administrative tribunal The Canadian Daily News- paper Publishers Association ICDNPA) says in a brief to Herb Gray, minister of con- sumer and corporate affairs, that the commission would have powers of "extraordinary breadth and importance" but its decisions would not be subject to appeal, review of super- vision "It is most unusual to confer such broad powers on an administrative tribunal with no right ol appeal or review from the decisions of the the CDNPA says "It is our respectful subrnis- sion this is a perilous precedent and leaves far too much power in the hands of the tribunal, the violation of those orders is automatically made a criminal offence particularly when there is no right ol review or appeal. The competition bill, ap- proved in principle by the House of Commons last week, empowers the commission to investigate and prohibit certain trade practices The commission now is an advisory body to government The CDNPA. which repre- sents 79 daily newspapers, also criticized other sections of the bill It said a section that would permit advertisers to combine to restrict advertising could be a threat to a free press. An advertiser or group of advertisers who did not like the editorial policies or news coverage of a newspaper or broadcasting station Prices soar for garden fertilizer TORONTO (CP) The price of garden fertilizers has increased about 20 per cent this year as the result of a worldwide shortage, industry spokesmen said here. One popular brand of 7-7-7 type fertilizer has risen to for a 33.3 pound bag. up from last year's price of for a 40-pound bag. Fred Gilmour, sales manager of the So-Green division of F. Manley Corp., said price increases on the retail level of about 15 to 18 per cent for his company's products compare with manufacturers' increases of up to 50 per cent for ingredients. Spokesmen said the biggest price increases are for fertilizers with a high nitrogen content. conceivably could combine and apply pressure by with- drawing advertising. OTTAWA (CP) Federal officials are taking steps to stop hospital deaths caused by "micro-shocks." the tiny wayward electric currents that are killing patients hooked up to heart-monitoring machines. Dr. Ron Campbell, chief of the health's department's medical devices section, said Thursday in an interview that some patients in intensive care units, who may be hooked up to as many as five or six different electrical instruments, are being killed by malfunctions that generate tiny shocks. The shocks are carried directly into the hearts of vic- tims along probes such as catheters used to measure heart and blood circulation performance. "It's practically impossible to say how many people are dying from this, partly because the deaths often are attributed simply to heart failure." he said. U.S. officials, who also are developing new hospital equipment standards, have estimated that more than 1.000 hospital patients are electrocuted each year in that country. Dr. Campbell said some of the equipment in the multi- million dollar hospital equipment industry is defective, and his department wants new manufacturing standards. "Some equipment just doesn't do what it's supposed to do Another problem, however, is that some hospital equipment does not get qualified maintenance. Most ot the machines require highly-skilled technicians and only the'largest hospitals have them on staff, he said. The directorate also was planning to set up a team of equipment inspectors who would tour hospitals looking for malfunctioning equipment. The standards, which will include regulations to reduce the maximum leakage from electrical equipment to 1- 100.000 of an ampere or 10 microamperes, also will affect cardio-defibrillators. machines that generate electrical impulses to counteract irregular heart beats. Incubators and sterilization equipment is also to meet new standards Apart from the safety aspect, malfunctioning equipment can also produce inaccurate diagnoses as well as failure ol treatment. The proposed regulations appear to be part of a government move to clamp tighter controls on all types of electrical appliances. Household appliances, for instance, may soon come under the Hazardous Products Act. empowering officials to seize defective products, consumer affairs department ofiicials said last month. Latest Statistics Canada fig- ures show that 35 persons died in 1972 of electrical shocks from home and industrial appliances. Another 42 died from unspecified types of electrocution. About 95 per cent of hospital equipment is imported, most from the United States, said Dr. Campbell. Pact near in dispute WASHINGTON CAP) Steel industry bargainers indicate they are near agreement on a new three- year contract for workers. Sources close to the talks between the United Steelworkers and the 10 major steel companies say the negotiators have agreed "to try and wrap it up" today. Although the sources caution' that some problems remain, the union has called its Basic Steel Industry Conference with repre- sentatives from 832 locals to a noon EST meeting for a report on the negotiations. The 600-member conference has authority to ratify a tenta- tive agreement or recommend turning over unresolved issues to arbitrators. A bargaining agreement signed a year ago eliminated the possibility of a nationwide steel strike this year. In return for giving up the right to go on strike, the USW was guaranteed wage increases of at least three per cent in each year of the new contract. The experimental bargaining agreement provides that any issues still in dispute by April 15 are to be submitted to arbitration. But since the negotiations entered their final phase a week ago, both sides have expressed hope that work on both national and local issues can be completed at the bargaining table. The pattern for the new steel contract was set earlier this year in USW contracts with the aluminum and can industries. SAVE MONEY!
