The Alberta Supreme Court appellate division last week re- versed convictions of two rrten in Calgary for operating an off- track betting establishment. Kenneth Williams, 34, and Wil- liam Adams, 32, were convicted in magistrate's court last June. That court ruled they had ac- cepted a consideration for plac- ing a bet, which contradicts a 1S69 Alberta Criminal Code amendment. S. A. Friedman, deputy at- torney general said the appli- cation for leave to appeal is expected to be heard shortly. if ,f> 01 BRUSSELS fAP) A major- ity of the 15 nations in the North to UN All ml i f a v o Chlm tj A sin si e i States tiie only posed fa of the world bo 1 j ,anizition i Cc mmuust i tions v 10 opinion lav ihe United nut Turkey are j o "lv op- i plicement Chin c in the ilht now favor Peking and the others are non- eommital.

They are Canada, Brit- ain, Denmark, France, Italy and Norway. The seventh, Hol- land, abstained. Belgium, which also abstained in New York, has said through Foreign Minister Pierre Harme that Peking should speak fo China in the world body. Th Belgians are moving toward es lavishing diplomatic ties with Rc-d China. The subject is likely to be dis- cussed in the NATO council o foreign ministers, which begins a two-day discussion of work affairs Thursday. "By 1972, if not indeed in 1971 WINNIPEG i'CP) Health service leader? must extend preventive medicine practices from the bedside into the physi- cal and social environment, in- cluding areas oi low-cost hous- ing, automobile safety and air and water pollution controls, Health Minister John' Munro said here. "It is downright inefficient to be constantly treating people for respirator.' ailments and lung problems if the air a patient breathes outside doctors' off- ices, hospitals, clinics, is capa- ble of undoing all the treatment received Mr. Munro told delegates to the third an- nual Manitoba health confer- ence. "It is an insult to the practice of medicine if the water we ing- est in so in any ways contains pollutants with the power to out-fight or out-last our strong- est medicines." The federal minister told about 2.000 delegates that as people dedicated to the pursuit of human health, "health pro- fessionals cannot allow the men- ace of man-made murk to go on festering in our atmosphere andin our rivers ar.d lakes." He said "every conceivable pressure" must ho brought to bear "to halt the polluters in their tracks now." POOR SUFFER MOST Mr. Munroe said Canada's worst health problems, both mental and physical, are found in the poverty pockets. He told the health profession- als they must become more sen- sitive to the phenomenon of drug abuse among young peo- ple. "Tlie foremost need is infor- factual, non- moralistic will reach experimenting youth and be believed by them." He told a news conference the federal government will be in- troducing a drug program in a few months that will make available to drug abusers medi- cal facilities, analytical services and information and education services. Mr. Munro called for reforms in the health services delivery system "that would bring health care down to the community level." Warning that Canadians can- not be asked to pay more for improving existing'health stand- ards until the government has made a more efficient use of re- sources now available, he said more flexible legislation regard- ing medical care and hospitali- zation could lead to better com- munity treatment, increased ef- ficiency and reduced cost.

Row dv.-t type of crca 1070 WASHINGTON (AP) Since taking office nearly two years ago, Defence Secretary Melvin Laird has been particularly sen- sitive about any doubts cast on the credibility of the U.S. de- fence department. Laird likes to remind report- ers of his efforts "to restore and maintain the credibility of this department." He cites the es- tablishment of daily news brief- ings and the abandonment of background briefings attribut- able only to unnamed sources in favor of his frequent on-the- rccord news conferences. Despite these efforts, the credibility issue is haunting the defence department, just as it did during the years of Presi- dent Lyndon Johnson's adminis- tration. Three cases stand out in which it appeared the defence department was saying one thing and doing another: The U.S. bombing raids in Cambodia, the denial that U.S. ground combat troops were in Laos, and last week's disclosure of the commando raid near Hanoi. DECIDED TO TELL Laird acknowledged last week the reason he decided to toll of a daring but unsuccessful com- North Vietnamese attention from the commando raid. It wasn't until after President Nixon let word sbp at a dinner last Thursday that the defence department confirmed U.S. fighter-bombers hit targets in the PoW camp area. So, as it has on several occa- sions throughout the Vietnam war, the defence department wound up confirming in part charges made by Hanoi. Why didn't Laird tell the sen- ators of the foreign relations committee and the public about the air strikes? "Now, I answer questions, but I only answer the questions that are asked and that particu- lar question was not he told a news conference Monday. accidents the Peking government could be seated at the United External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp of Canada told reporters. "Certainly this is what Canada hopes to see hap- pen. The changes that could flow from this development are incalculable. "Little is known of China's in- tentions. One thing is certain, if Europe and North America are directing their energies to a sterile trade conflict they will have difficulty in meeting the challenges and seizing the op- portunities presented by China's full participation in world af- fairs." Sharp is expected to express these views in the NATO council debate. Portugal, Luxembourg and Iceland, as well as Holland and Belgium, abstained from voting when the China question came up in the UN General Assembly. West Germany, the 15th mem- ber of NATO, is a special cate- gory because it does not belong ;o the United Nations. r, OctOhi'i- units in icp.C'.iii 1'a.
