Health Minister Ralph Loff- mark didn't use the term "lift- ing of a medical licence" or "medical competency" at a No- vember meeting on the issue in Vancouver. In a telephone interview from Pincher Creek, where he set up his practice last month, Dr. Regehr said he met there Tuesday with a Dr. Gossen of Vancouver who said he was a representative of Mr. Loffmark and "he basically discussed the political situation there (in B.C.) in regards to certain statements attributed to Mr. Loffmark against me." He said he had written a per- sonal letter to the minister a letter "which as far as I know will not be made public" in which he "corrected some cf the wording used in the press media that was not quite ac- curate." Dr. Regehr, 27, left Clear- water, 80 miles north of Kam- loops earlier in January, after Mr. Loffmarfc refused to allow the community to open a small, 50-bed hospital. The only doctor serving a wide area of the Cariboo coun- try, he said it was impossible for him to work without a hos- pital "for any length of time." Monday, Barrie Clark (L North Vancouver-Seymour) de- manded in the legislature that the minister resign, claiming Mr. Loffmark had untruthfully denied questioning the doctor's qualifications and right to prac- tice in B.C. Earlier, in a speech to the House, he alleged .that Mr. Loffmark had written to Dr. Regehr, accusing him of play- ing politics in the issue and threatening to look into his medical competency to see whether his licence should be lifted. Since then. Mr. Loffmark has filed correspondence in the House, which he said proved he did not, at any time, threaten to take such action. Mr. Clark read an extract from one of the letters Mon- day, in which the minister in- formed Dr. W. G. MeClure, registrar of the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons: "At no; time, have I ever sug- gested or said I was going to look into Dr. .Regehr's medical competency and see about lift- ing his licence." Here, Mr. Clark accused Mr. Loffmark of tabling "an untrue and later, outside the house, produced a tran- SUPER SAVINGS EVERYDAY AT THRIFTWAY DRUGS CREST TOOTHPASTE Reg. 1.29 Everyday at THRIFTWAY MODESS FEMININE NAPKINS 48s SPEC1AI Complete Reg. 10.95 SCOPE MOUTHWASH and GARGLE 12-oz.

The transcript quoted Mr Loffmark as saying: I want to make it very, very jlainly understood that no doc or is going to tell me that h is going to leave unless he gets a hospital, because I'm going t start looking at his qualifica ions and his right to practice this province." Questioned about that state- ment Tuesday, Dr. Regehr sail be had no idea who taped the meeting in the minister's Van couver office and added tha his recollection of tie commen was that it fitted the quotatio given by Mr. Clark, although ie couldn't say "word for word." Asked if he considered th quotation to be, in effect threat to his licence and ques- tioning of his competence, h replied: "I won't Interpret the quote I think anyone can interpret any way they want."

Jurors sent home LOS ANGELES (AP) ft- rors in the Sharon Tate murder trial, locked up nightly far seven months to avoid expowre to possibly prejudicial publicity, were told Tuesday they can live at home during the remaining days of the sentencing hearing. Superior Court Judge Charles H. Older acted after a woman alternate juror fainted while being sworn in to replace a juror who said he had to go borne for personal reasons. The judge did not explain the reason for his decision. Defence lawyers said they opposed the move during argument! in chambers. Said chief defence counsel Paul Fitzgerald: "It will open them up to an enor- mous possibility of juror intimi- dation." He implied people might try to influence the jurors in their decision on a penalty for Charles Hanson and three women members of his hippie- style clan, convicted last month of murder-conspiracy in the slayings of Miss Tate and six others. The jury is hearing testimony to determine whether the de- fendants should be executed or given life imprisonment. Court will be in recess until Thursday to allow jurors to col- lect belongings and move out of a hotel where they have lived during the trial. The jury was sworn in last July 14.
