Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Mor.iiay, December 20, 1971 THf LETHRKIDOE HERAID Skid-row alcoholic ignored EDMONTON (C'P) An ex- pert says the skid-road alcoholic is an ignored segment of society he has greater problems than other alcoholics. Albert R. Charles, day clinic supervisor for the Alberta Alco- holism and Drug Abuse Com- mission, said many attempts have teen made to help middle- and higher-class alcoholics tn solve their problems, but few people want to get involved with the seemingly-hopeless skid- road "bums." "Counsellors seem to invest themselves where the rewards are he said in an Ln- Iterview, adding that treating skid-road alcoholics is frustrat- ing work requiring infinite pa- tience. "lie is a difficult person to treat because his needs are so different to the middle- or high- er-class he said. Mr. Charles said it is much more difficult for a skid-road home, a family that cares, and a certain amount of job secu- rity.

Pakistan Drug abuse commission needs staff and money EDMONTON (OP) The Al- berta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission lias been left in a difficult position be- cause of a freeze imposed on government departments after (lie Aug. 30 provincial election, executive director Bill Wacko says. "We're almost a third under- staffed and we are handling more and more said Mr. Wacko, appointed last July. "It's a bad situation for the morale of the staff." He said the commission was set up two years ago as a semi- independent body to do innova- tive work in the field of alcohol- ism and drug abuse. But its budget had remained virtually the same as that al- located to the former division should try to be a partial re- source. We must train and in- volve various professional groups and agencies to do their own treatment." Mr. Wacko said there is a role for the whole coummunity in the treatment of alcoholism and drug abuse. "There is a real place for alcoholic lo give up drinking I life with alcohol, but if you lak than an alcoholic who has a it away, you've just loft them with a miserable life." Drinking for them is a de- fence and an escape and they feel that if they can't really lie lappy, maybe if they drink they can at least pretend they are. said. When they slop drinking, they are rejected by the skid-road society and at the same time they are not accepted by the rest of society.

The 707-page bill with wide- spread changes in almost all fields of personal and business taxes, was placed before the Se- nate Friday and the government has made'it plain it wants the measure approved before year's end. Appearing on CTV's public af- fairs program Question Period Sunday, Senator Manning said it would take at least three or four weeks for the Senate to give the bill the study it deserves. Faced with the goveramenl timetable however, the Senate had no option but to give the bill speedy passage, he said. The former Social Credit pre- mier of Alberta rejected sugges- tions that the Senate defy Ihe government's and Commons' will and hold up passage of the legislation. talk to." This is where Mr. Charles feels he and the commission can and should be helping. The commission has submit- ted a request to the provincial health and social welfare de- partment for a suitable building in Edmonton's skid-road area. The centre would aim at prov- iding an atmosphere of growth to alcoholics frying to give up drinking. The idea is that it would be a stepping-stone from skid-road society into the main- stream of society. "We have to supply a place where help is available in a place they know and feel com- fortable Mr. Charles said. People working with skid-road alcoholics cannot expect spec- tacular success, he said.

East Pakistan (AP) The jubilation of victory has given way to savagery as Dac- ca's Bengalis avenge their mur- dered relatives and comrades in blood. The cily's Tiihari community, j among whom the Pakistani mil- itary regime found most of its collaborators, is the target. The Indian troops who occu- pied Dacca Thursday arc trying to check the killings. But they cannot stop the stab in the dark and the back street reprisal. Some Bangla Desh guer- rillas, armed with modern auto-1 matic weapons, race through the streets in crowded tracks i and jeeps, dispensing their brand of justice to suspected traitors to their new nation. They have plenty to avenge. Two days before the Pakislani surrendered, 120 local iilellec- :uals were rounded up and autchered. Many were tortured Lo death. Their decomposing bodies, kicked over by crowds and feasted on by dogs, still lie scat- tered among water-logged clay pits on the outskirts of the city. Hundreds go daily to tho scene, taking their children with them. The Indian army's headquar- ters is inundated with inquiries about missing relatives. Mutilated bodies are a com- mon sipht in the streets. Every- where there is a lust for blood. A Bihari student who revealed the whereabouts of a mass grave was seized and bound. Only the appearance of an In- dian patrol saved him from the mob. Four bound men were bludg- eoned and bayoneted to death Saturday at the end of a public meeting called to celebrate tlie victory over Pakistan. Abdul Kader Sadiq. a self- styled guerrilla general, told the crowd anyone who took the law into his own hands would he punished. He said his prisoners would be given a proper trial; as soon as he ended his speech, he gave the order for their exe- cution. With each bayonet thrust, the crowd roarnd, "Joi the Bangla Desh battle cry. As the blood flowed, Gen. Sagat Singh, commander of the Indian troops In Daora. was telling reporters at his head- quarters: "I sec a rosy pic- ture." DISARM GUKmtlU.AS Indian patrols are disarming j the Bangla Desh movement of Mukti Bahini guerrillas but it is a slow process. 'Yon have no more need for an Indian lieutenant- colonel told one guerrilla band. 'We are looking after your safety, and the war is over." There was an argument, but eventually the Mukti merely handed over their guns. So, too, did some Sfi.OOO Paki- j stani troops in Dacca during the j weekend. They had been allowed to keep their weapons until all had been rounded up at the airport barracks and their safely se- cured. Gen. J. S. Aurora, India's eastern commander, told re- porters the prisoners soon would be shipped tn seven camps in India. Joining the prisoners at the barracks was former Gov. A. M. Malik, who had taken refuge with tie Red Cross din-ing the war. Along with 240 West Pakis- tanis, he was transferred from the Intercontinental Hotel to the military cantonment before dawn. The Mukli Bahini had de- manded that Malik be handed over and gave the Red Cross and the United Nations 24 hours lo comply with the demand. The Indian army posted reinforce- ments around the hotel, and no attempt was made to seize him.

VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Medical As- sociation is asking its members to approve a new medicare fee schedule which would increase fees by more than 13 per cent in two years. Dr. E. C. McCoy, the asso- ciation's executive director, an- nounced Friday that a mail referendum on the question has been sent to the province's doctors. In material accompanying the ballot, doctors arc asked to reject a government offer and vote in favor of introduc- ing a new fee schedule Jan. 1, with or the approval of (the provincial government's medical services commission. The 1972 schedule would in- troduce an overall increase of 8.2 per cent, most of which would go to the sis so-called 'low income sections" of the medical profcsMou general prat-lice, i'.'irnal medicine, pe- diatrics, psychiatry, anaesthe- sia and dermatology. The second year of the pro- posed schedule would provide for an overall increase of slight- ly more than five per cent, for all sections of the profession. The doctors are expected to give overwhelming approval to the propc sal. In an interview, Doctor Mc- Coy said it is possible the gov- ernment might reject medical bills based on the proposed schedule, but he hoped agree- ment could be reached on the new rates by Jan. 1. have given the commis- sion considerable time to ar- range a final meeting and dis- cuss our new schedule, which they have not done even though it has been on their desk for some he said. Doctors are being asked to return Uieir ballots by Jan. fi and Dr. McCoy said the major- ity opinion will become the as- sociation's policy, retroactive to Jan. 1. His letter lo tho B.C.'s doc- tors s aid the gove ni men t's offer made through the com- mission is not acceptable. He said the offer would allow the commission to authorize a 10-pcr-cent annual increase in the total medicare budget for payment to physicians for in- sured services. Dr. McCoy said tliis money must pay for population in- crease, increased utilization, additional doctors, new fees, new diagnostic techniques, new treatment procedures and any increase in fees. He said the increase in fees will be directly proportional to the control of the other factors, but there is no guarantee that costs can be controlled sufficiently to pro- i vide funds for any increase in jfees for doctors' services. The letter said "your board is not in favor of accepting payment from a pool of funds j to increased annually by 1" per cent wilh a most uncertain i amount., if any. going to an I increase in fees."
