to Doctors R Hume and E Weyers of Glasgow Scotland anemia rrakes us to colds and flu as iron is so important to the defense mechanism in our bodies Involved in this defense against infection are

FREE ESTIMATES 329-4722 COLLEGE Saskatchewan program for retarded rapped REGINA (CP) The Sas- katchewan government's pro- grams for the mentally re- tarded have been sharply criticized in a report by a medical consultant The private report, obtained and made public this week by CBC Radio describes over- crowding and under-staffing at the province's largest in- stitution for the retarded It terms the administrative leadership disappointing and the record of a co-ordinating cabinet, a committee of ministers and their deputies a sorry one to date The 164-page report was compiled at the co-ordinating committee s request by Dr Graham Clarkson an Edmonton-based consultant who is a former Sas- katchewan deputy minister of public health Dr Potter's controversial assessment of Moose Jaw's Valley View Centre, one of two institutions for the retard ed in the province, is included as a chapter The assessment was leaked to the news media last November Claims of morale problems among the

long been eager to push development of the Amazon Basin but has found the going slow and troublesome, par- ticularly because of native resistance President Ernesto Geisel is- sued an order Friday restric- ting access to an area oc- cupied by the Waimin and Atroan tribes in northern Amazonas state, where a road is being cut through the jungle between Manaus and Caracan The government in recent years has laced the Amazon Basin with a number of road- building projects, which the government hopes will en- courage business, industry and agriculture to develop the region In recommending Geisel s order Interior Minister Rangel Reis told the president the two tribes "offer serious lesistance to pacification He warned of an ever- present danger of new clashes' between the Indians and road building crews and travellers Despite the deaths of three Indian agents last January, Reis said agents will continue to try to establish friendly relations with the Waimin and Atroan Geisel's order empowered the agents to keep out of the area anyone who might hamper their work U.S. judge closes environment case ST PAUL Minn (AP) A U S district judge closed the record Friday in one of the United States' most complicated and far reaching environmental cases, leaving the Reserve Mining Co litigation in the hands of the 8th U S Circuit Court of Appeals and ultimately the U S Supreme Court After 388 days of almost continuous courtroom activity, Judge Miles Lord entered a final judgment which read "the evidence on the merit of this case is closed Plaintiffs have attempted without success to get the matter before the United States highest court but the circuit court said it would not make a final determination until Judge Lord disposed of the separate pollution aspect Manitoba forest report completed WINNIPEG (CP) Premier Ed Schreyer has formally received the report of a three man inquiry into the Churchill Forest Industries project at The Pas, the result of nearly four years of investigation Mr Schreyer told a news conference Friday he hopes to have a firm recommendation within two weeks from his legal advisers on the appropriate time to make public the report He said there are some complications on the releasing of the report because of the possible effect on criminal court proceedings ed in December, 1972 as an interdepartmental agency to oversee care of the province's handicapped particularly the retarded Dr Clarkson says some offi- cials of the agency have cited political reasons for cer- tain decisions and lack of initiatives which they say would be in the best interest of the program He also says some program directors sav certain commu- nities have not been chosen for pilot projects because "since they are politically un- acceptable It would appear that the coordinating committee of ministers and deputy ministers acts as an advisory body rather than an executive body, the report states The Vallev View Centre was built about 20 years ago and was said at that time to be one of the most up-to-date in- stitutions of its kind in North America "It is a regrettable fact that within a few years of its open- ing this new institutional structure started to become obsolete Dr Clarkson says The report says that today, Vallev View is over-crowded under-staffed and largely un- suited to the needs of modern rehabilitation theories Dr Clarkson stresses, how- ever that the staff has done a commendable job under the circumstances The report estimates that, with a resident population of about 970 persons, a minimum ot 73 more direct-care staff members would be needed and "optimally, and ad- ditional 397 persons should be added Such additions would bring the staff, now at about 650, to levels recommended by the American Association on Mental Deficiencies
