Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THt IITHUIDOI HBIMD Tuwdoy, Mmwy 53, President adopts imposter BANQUI (AP) President Jean Bedell Bokassa of the Cen- tral African Republic has de- ciued to adopt the 17-year-old South Vietnamese street vendor who claimed to be his daughter but later was identified as an imposter. The president announced his decision to adopt the girl, Ngu- yen Ba Xi, at a celebration of his 50th birthday. He also said he had requested the South Vietnamese govern- ment to release the girl's par- ents, who were reported ar- rested in Saigon for claiming falsely that she was Bokassa's daughter. Miss Ba Xi was welcomed to Banqui by Bokassa last Novem- ber as his long-sought daughter Marline, born to a Vietnamese woman while he was a sergeant in the French army in Indo- china during the 1950s. A second Marline arrived in January, along with her mother, whom Bokassa said he recog- nized. That Marline has often been seen with ihe presidenl since. National dental program proposed Irish leader weathers storm OTTAWA (CP) Only aboul one-third of Ins population's 1 dental sen-ice requirements are j being filled and dental health as a consequence is poor, says a special report to the federal government. It proposes a national dental program for children as a step toward eventual dental care of the scope now given for medical care under the national medical care insurance program. The report was tabled in the Commons Monday by Health Minister John Munro who said the recommendations will be studied. A variety of ways of correct- ing the current serious shortage of dentists is put forward in the report, particularly through bet- ler training of denial auxiliaries such as dental assistanls, dental hygienists, dental technicians and dental technologists. The report was written by a DUBLIN (AP) Prime Min- ister Jack Lynch has weathered a challenge to his leadership of The Republic of Ireland's gov- erning Fianna Fail party and gays he will not call new elec- tions in the near future. After a si or my twrwiay Fienna Fail convention, Lynch went on lelevision and ruled out elections "for the good of ihe country." He said last summer he would call elections if the party re- jected his leadership, and he won a vote of confidence in Par- liament by just seven votes last November. But during the weekend convention his support was so overwhelming thai Ihe poll his critics wanted was nol even called. Faclions led by former minis- ter Kevin Boland and Neil Bla- ney had demanded his ouster because he advocates only legal means to reunify Ireland with Ulster, the six counlies lo Ihe north. Puzzled over disappearance GENEVA (API-Officials of the European Nuclear Re- search Centre were as puzzled as Swiss police today about the mysterious disappearance of Victor Vaghin, Russian engi- neer-physicist working on new equipment for the Soviet re- search station of Serpukhov. Vaghin disappeared from his Geneva apartment 11 days ago, with his wife and two children. He did nol ask for asylum in Switzerland and there was no indication where he might have gone.

Received per month WASHINGTON (AP) A United States Army general re- ceived monthly from Ihe most notorious sales promoter in South Vietnam, shielded him from military investigators and permitted him to store smug- gled goods in army warehouses, a U.S. Senate subcommittee was told Monday. Senators investigating alleged corruption in the U.S. armed services' billion post ex- change, clubs and recreation ac- tivities were told retired Col. Earl F. Cole, 51, then a briga- dier-general, used his influence as a well-placed staff officer in South Vietnam to protect free- wheeling American entrepre- neur William J. Crum. The army gave no explanation last July when it removed Cole from command of the European post exchange system, reducec him to colonel and ordered him lo retire. committee set up in 1968 as a result of recommendations of the Hall royai commission on health services. The committee was headed by Chief Justice Dallon C. Wells of Ontario Su- preme Court. MANPOWER SHORTAGE II says Ihe dertal profession estimates that only one-third of denial requirements are being met by exisling denial man- power. This was a matter of concern since prepaid dental care through government-spon- sored children's services "is being contemplated." In addition, the level of de- mand by the general public is expected to increase. To cope, the- denlisl-popula- tion rafio would have lo be boosted to 1 for each from 1 for each in ihe short run since it would mean doubling or tripling" dental school outpul. Present plans call for a ratio of 1 to by 1986. Hence the emphasis on producing more and better dental auxiliaries and redislribuling the duties performed by them under den- tal supervision. The report says an estimated 55 per cent of Canadians live in regions where they cannot get more than 35 per cent of the re- quired services due to man- power shortages. URGES EXPANSION It suggests introduction of ad- ditional outlets for provision of services, now given mainly through private practice. Among those are school and hospital dental clinics, mobile clinics, and settings where teams of dentists and auxilia- ries can give service. Other recommendations: start of a na- tional dental program for chil- dren involving all known meth- ods of prevention, education and treatment, beginning at the youngest and adding new age groups yearly until all school- age children have been in- cluded. of the program to the population as a whole after the children's program is fully functioning. of all financial barriers to care for children in bolh public and private practice spheres of dentistry. of a Canadian council on dental auxiliaries to deal with certification and ac- creditation of education and training institutions. and federal gov- ernment encouragemenl and regulation of a number of cate- gories of dental auxiliaries, with the main emphasis in education being at the level of community colleges. Healing Substance... Shrinks Piles, Checks Itch Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids...and repair damaged tissue. A renowned research institute has found a unique healing sub- stance with the ability 10 shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It re- lieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues. One hemorrhoidal case his- tory after another reported "very striking improvement." Pain was promptly and gently relieved actual reduction or retraction (shrinking) took place. And most improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hemorrhoidal condi- tions. All this was accomplished with a healing substance (Bio- Dyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimulates srowthofnew tissue. Bio-Dyne is offered in ointment and supposi- tory form called Preparation H. In addition to actually shrink- ing hemorrhoids, Preparation H lubricates and makes elimina- tion less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated cause of hemorrhoids.
