Beet growers present life to Kirchners mem The Alberla Sugar Beet Growers Association Wednes- day presented the Kirchnor brothers with honorary lile meinbership in the organi- zation for exceptional and meritorious service to the in- dustry. Harold Kircbner and Marvin, accepting for his uncle Earl Kirchner, were honored as a family learn for, in the words of ASBGA president Lalovec Jensen, "a contribution to a way of life that has never been equalled in agricultural engi- neering." Mr. Jensen told 103 delegates to the organization's 47th an- nual meeting that machinery designed Kirchner and built by brothers over years has almost eliminated hand labor from the sugar beet industry. He said the company turns out about 500 machines a year, including cultivators, planters, toppers, lop savers, beet har- veslers and land levellers. lie said ihe Kirchner's adapt- ed the sugar beet industry to create labor saving devices. The award, a plaque mount- ed on a small replica of the first mechanical beet harves- ler" a knife designed for topping heets was made be- fore sugar beet farm- ers, sugar factory officials and special guests of the convcn- vcntion. Mr. Kirchner said when they first moved to Lethbridge from a small shop in Tilley they never expected to find such good friends and customers. He invited all sugar beet growers and families to visit the plant for coffee and "to look at the machinery they have helped our company to build." Earl Kirchner was not able to attend because he is staying in Ihe southern winter. U.S. for the Dr. J. E.

These contracts can turns and is considered as member of the association. Alberta Attorney General Mervin Leitch says no legisla- tion has bsen planned or dis- cussed so far which would pro- vide legal recognition of confi- dential doctor patient rela- tionsliips. Any information obtained by police, such as in the Edmon- ton police seizure of the medi- cal files of Dr. David Craig, would be "heresay evidence" and not sufficient grounds for prosecution, he believes. However protective doctor- patient relationsliip legislation is "an area we're going to have to consider." Locally, the Edmonton police action has resulted in a furor among some medical practi- tioners. When contacted by Ihe Her- ald, Lethbridge psychiatrist Dr. Lawrence K o t k a s speculated that the police action against Dr. Craig was not motivated by a case of defrauding the Alber- la Health Care Insurance Com- mission. He feels it is more of a case of police wanting to know the names of some of the heroin addicts Dr. Craig was treatin so that they oould be used informers to provide police wilh information about drug push- ers. Pointing to a letter .sunt Io the province's doctors by the Alberta Medical Association, Dr. Kbtkas noted iUs contents: there is nothing the AMA can do at present to pro- tect doctor patient relation- ships from police scrutiny after a court order has been obtain- ed; it was not Die AIICIG which instigated tlie current action, it was the police. A Lethbridge medical assoc.i- ahon public relations man told the Herald that the confiden- tial doctor patient relationship czn be jeopardized by the Ed- monton police action. Patients may now be hesitant to provide doctors with crucial information which is important to patient and public safety. An example could be: a mar- ried businessman who attends a convention and comes home with VD. Tlie doctor must report in his files where and how the pa- tient came in contact, with the social disease. Because the patient is afraid that the confidential disclosure to the doctor could be publicly revealed he may not provide the doctor with the necessary informaUon to prevent further spread of the disease. If the patient's wife discover-, ed what happened it could af- fect the entire family structure, the said. Dr. Kotkas' comments reiter- ated the AMA representative's disclosure. "By not telling a doctor what he ought to know, because of fear the information will fall into the wrong various diseases- including alcoholism, drug addiction and VD could result in wide-spread epidemics. Once liic confidenti'allity is broken, people are not impelled to seek treatment, Dr. Kolkas ssid. Music board exams Feb. 16-17 The Western of Music practical examinations will be held Feb. 1G and 17 in the mu- sic department on the west campus of the University of Lethbridge.

The time has come to say thank you to all the nice people who have supported me and my family so well over the pasl 24 years of my operation of Ihe El Rancho Motor Hotel. We ore not thinking of leaving ihis part of Ihe counlry, bul we have sold the El Rancho which over so many years was cur place of communily business and service, and I am sure a landmark of hospi- lality to many. It has always been my desire to serve everyone equally and well, bul I am sure that of times I have stepped on some people's toes and have hurt the feelings of some people. To these people 1 offer my humble apologies. To the others I hope you have been salisfied with our efforls ai the El Rancho. This expression of thanks cannot be confined only to the people of Lethbridge and district, as we have served many people from all over Iho world, many famous and notable persons among them. I hope these people acquired a good impression and fond memories of teth- bridge. Most of you will recall the disaslrcus fire we suffered on Dec- ember 4, 1967. This was a lime of trial, but again wilh the of local individuals and businesses we were able to rebuild a much better El Rancho. (It also helped to have a good underslanding bank man- ager.) 1 built and operated the Park View Motel in Calgary in 1946 (and lhal same name served ihe El Roncho for its first two so it has now been 26 years since I storied serving the hospitality industry. For myself and my family, we now wish Io settle on some acreage close to Lcfhbridge, where the children can have a couple of horses, a dog, and maybe a good hunling dog for myself. My liltle boy says "and some but his mother says no chickens. We humbly lliank you all for your wonderful support over theso years. Please stop by and see us. We will be in the Fl Rancho Penthouse until July 1-1, 1972, and if you miss us here please come visit with us in our new home. You will be welcome guests. In the meantime do slop by and meel the new Ramrod here ah the El Rancho. His name is AI Hobcr. He is a major shareholder amongst Hie new purchasers, and he is a fine follow. Ho knows good food, and he also knows how to serve good food. You will like him and his cohorts. Wishes and A Thank You Io all Mel and Carol Fcngslad and the children ;
