Union Pltm Most Likely PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. (CP) Ed Nassertten, leader of the Saskatchewan Progres- sive Conservative says that any union of western prov- inces will likely be between Sas- katchewan and Alberta. He said the two provinces have a greater community of in- terests than either Manitoba or British Columbia. Mr. Nasserden, a former member of parliament, said he does not favor westers separa- tism but a union of western provinces is desirable. He said in an interview that he is in favor of stronger provincial sta- tus. Two reasons favoring union between Alberta and Saskatch- ewan were pollution control ant attracting industries.

Dr. Jeffrey Bishop, head of he Canadian food and drug di- rectorate's bureau of drug advi- sory services, said that when McNaugbtan sought authori- zation for clinical trials in this country, the Canadian author- ities advised the applicants that more information was needed.

Dr. Blair, head of the depart- ment of psychology at the Uni- versity of Calgary and author of the Blair Report on Mental Health in Alberta, was speak- ing to the annual conference of the guidance council of the Al- berta Teachers' Association. "Teachers are an important part of the front line against menial illness, in the early iden- tification of problems, listening to students, giving them indivi- dual attention." He told 140 delegates mental health is the proper business of several professions and there is a great need for the- participa- tion of Don prDfessuaals in dealing with mental illness.
