Phone 327.6070 fWe are in it for values of love, respect for life9 mm Abandoned bitch aided by Croivsnest Pass SPCA PINCHER CREEK (Special) - Recently the governing and advisory boards of St. Vincent's Hospital met the administrator, a member of the medical staff, Roman Catholic bishop of Calgary and his advisors to discuss the future of St. Vincent's Hospital. Sister Gabrielle Fortier, chairman of the governing board, reviewed steps which had led the Sisters, on Dec. 11, 1971, to decide to relinquish ownership and management of St. Vincent's Hospital by July 1, 1973. A shortage of Sisters, particularly of Sisters adequately prepared for active membership on the governing board, prompted the decision. Protests from local residents followed the announcement the Sisters would leave. The bishop was also notified of the decision. Bishop Paul O'Byrne immediately volunteered his help. If the people of Pincher Creek understand' the value of a Christian hospital and wish to retain this character through continuation of a voluntary-type of hospital, the Sisters stated, "We will let our equity stand and will ask the Diocese of Calgary to manage the hospital through a board of trustees made up of local people." The diocese will not take over management of the hospital if this is not what the local people want, stressed Bishop O'Byrne. He added no plans had been made for the formation of a local board of trustees as this would be done by mutual agreement between local people and representatives of the diocese. This local board would have powers with which to act in keeping with the wishes and needs of the PLncher Creek community. Discussions with the minister of health and social development show he has no objection to this change in administration. "If the letters from Pincher Creek received by the bishop and us," said Sister Elen Martin, "Are indicative of what the local people want, we are ready to help them get what they want. But the decision must not be made by any small group: it must be representative of the people. No one is receiving monetary gain in hospital ownership; we are in it for the values of love and respect for life this type of commitment represents." Discussions centred on powers given to the advisory board, the need for new construction and equipment, improvement of communications between boards and medical staff, possibilities for a municipal hospital and the likelihood of a plebiscite to settle issues. It was further stated the provincial government does not particularly want the hospital to change ownership. It was the meeting's consensus that a report of these findings be published for public reaction. If people are satisfied with a voluntary hospital system, plans will immediately be enacted for the July 1, 1973, transfer of management of St. Vincent's Hospital to the Diocese of Calgary, with the Daughters of Jesus retaining ownership. T. V. Hammond, chairman of St. Vincent's Hospital, advisory board, reaffirmed the gratitude of the people toward the Daughters of Jesus for their "long and devc'-d service" to the people. He extended a vote of thanks to all those attending the meeting. COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) - The Crowsnest Pass branch of the SPCA reports an abandoned bitch with five puppies, creating a nuisance in east Coleman, has been destroyed. The bitch was picked up and was found to be suffering from extensive burns. The animal was taken to the Pincher Creek Veterinarian Clinic where after examination it was destroyed. The four puppies have been placed in good homes. Considerable time and effort was expended by members of the SPCA who were informed that the fifth pup was under a ramp leading to a garage. Attempts were made one afternoon to retrieve the pup but were unsuccessful. The next morning a young lad crawled . under the ramp and removed the pup. Distemper shots have been promised for the four pups and spaying for the females. One female is still available and the SPCA offers a $10 voucher towards spaying to the persons who adopts the pup. The SPCA has announced the Crowsnest Pass group consists of members from all Pass towns and all cases are discussed. with active members of all towns before action is taken. The group does not receive any government or municipal funds and members are not paid. The only compensation members receive is for phone calls or for gasoline. Funds are obtained by donations, raffles and special money-making projects undertaken by the membership. Animals that have to be destroyed are taken to the Pincher Creek Veterinarian Clinic at the local group's expense. It is reported that since Jan. 1 the group has placed 30 dogs, five cats, nine gerbils and two monkeys and has had to destroy four dogs and five cats.
