Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta tO THE I.ETHBRIOCE HERALD Monday, January 10, 1971 Humor will help relieve anxiety PHILADELPHIA (Reuter) Knock. Husband: "Who is there." Voice from Ihc door: "The Boston Slranglcr." Husband, over his shoulder: "It's for you, dear." If you think (liat is funny it may mean you don't like your wife, says Dr. Werner M. Mendel, a psychiatrist at the University of Southern Cali- fornia. If you laugh at cripples, mo- rons, foreigners or the under- dog you are really saying: "I am not like they are, thank God I am not lie." II you think a clown slipping on a banana peel is hilarious you are saying: "I am glad that I don't look as ridiculous as he does." Jokes and our reaction to them can be as revealing as dreams, Mendel said. "Humor is a way of rclie- ing Mendel said in a paper delivered here to Pattern the American Associalion for the Advancement of Science. laugh when we are aru- ious is a pattern of relief be- havior we have all experi- enced." "Humor also serves the function of expressing feelings which we could not express directly because we don't want to risk having to face the consequences. "To tell a wish as a joke allows us to say, 'I was only joking.' Therefore, we cannot be held responsible by the other person. For exampie, I can say, 'Why don't you drop dead' and say it with a smile and tell it as a joke and you will probably not hit me." Humor also can act as a detoxicant for painful realily as ethnic jokes. If you are Jewish and tell a Jewish juke you may be trying to make a joke before your non- Jewish companion does.

Otnario Klondike festival wins backing VANCOUVER (CP) A re- gional Klondike festival, to run tor two years under the aus- pices of Alaska, Washington, British Columbia and the Yuk- on Territory, has received XX) for initia! funding from the Yukon territorial government. John Guldner, territorial di- rector of travel and inform a- tiOD, said the celebrations will mark the sailing in 1897 of the S. S. Portland from St. Mich- ael's, Alaska, to Seattle, which marked the beginning of the gold rush. Representatives of the four [overnments discussed plans or the festival, which starts .his spring and will run until Dctober of 1973, at a meeting here. Attempts made on Mao's life NEW DELHI (AP) An In- dian newspaper reported here that Communist party chairman Mao Tse-tung of China is under tight security because of two at- tempts on his life. The Current Weekly quoted an informed source at Dharmas- ala, the exile home of the Dalai Lama since he was driven from Tibet by the Chinese in 1950. It said lour highly-placed Tibetan refugees reported the attempts alter reaching India via Nepal. Both attempts involved time bombs, the newspaper asserted. One was discovered under Mao's chair before a Commun- ist party meeting, the refugees said. Another was placed in a car Mao was to have used after another meeting. The second at- tempt'failed when Mao took a different car. Newfoundland short of medical men ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Newfoundland's department of health is short on medical men and there has been in- creased activity in 1971 Ui re- cruit more doctors, especially in Great Britain, for the is- land's cottage hospital serv- ice. Health Minister Ed Roberts recently announced that two senior medical officers from the provincial department of health were interviewing and assessing prospective candi' dates in London, Leeds, Man- Chester, Newcastle, Edin- burgh, Glasgow and Dublin. Earlier in 1971, the depart- ment recruited 34 doctors in Great Britain who took over their duties in July. Mr. Roberts said: "It isn't easy to attract doctors to Newfoundland." But he was optimistic over the results of last year's recruiting cam- paign. The number of appli- cants and their qualifications were the highest since the campaign began. He credited most of the suc- cess to the government's in- denture arrangement with graduating medical students. The financial assistance program, started in 1959, of- fers medical students grants up to a year to help them with their education and living expenses. PRACTISES ONE YEAR In return for each two years a student accepts government financial assistance he agrees to practise in government service for one year, and practise an additional year in any area of Newfoundland and Labrador he wishes, not necessarily i n government service. "Last year there were 19 medical graduates joining the island's cottage hospital sys- tem to begin their terms of service in return for the finan- cial assistance provided by the government during their years of Mr. Roberts said. This was the largest influx of new graduate medical doc- tors into tlie government serv- ice since the financial assist- ance program began. In 1970 17 graduating medical doctors entered government service and this year 13 are scheduled to do so. With fewer recruits this year and the scheduled retire- ment of seven senior medical officers the recruiting cam- paign is expected to be inten- sified. There are 19 cottage hospi- tals in Newfoundland with two or more resident doctors. The largest, James Paton Memo- rial Hospital at Gander, has 12 doctors on staff. About 120 (if the province's 466 practis- ing doctors are government- employed and 55, or almost half, have been imported from oulside Canada. HAS LOW RATIO Newfoundland has the low- est ratio of doctors to popula- tion in Canada. The New- foundland Medical Association rates it as one doctor to every or people compared with the Canadian average of one to 800 people. During the last 10 or 12 years there has been a tre- Nicaragua political machine leaves nothing to chance MOYOGALPA (AP) It's election campaign Brae in Nica- ragua, and Latin America's old- est political machine is leaving nothing to chance. President Anastasio Somoza Debayle, third in a family line which has governed Nicaragua since 1936, made a campaign speech here the other day. Long before his arrival people began streaming in from outly- ing areas. They came by foot or horseback and by the truckload from places like Esquipulas, La Flor, Sinacapa end Balgues. At length, Somoza made his appearance. Cheers rolled to- ward the platform as he came into view. Somoza waved, smiled and lit a big cigar. His Liberal parly workers had done the job. Hundreds of man hours had been spent in assuring a large turnout. Somoza reeled otf a list of achievements, heaped scorn on the Conservative party opposi- tion and pulled the lever that symbolized electricity for this long-neglected area. Power still is in the hands of Ihc wealthy in Nicaragua- starting with Somoza. His inter- ests include shipping, the na- tional airline, cattle ranching, fishing, plywood, textiles and buildings. He is a millionaire many times over. A favorite opposition charge is that Somoza makes bl'ntant use of presidential powers to ad- vance family business interests. A ranking member of the Con- servative pnrly, declining to idcnLificd, says all meat exports to the Unilcd States are sent from Somoza ranches. Another source of criticism is a highway built a few years ago from Managua, the capital, to a remote spot on the Pacific coast where there is a Somoza-owned beach house. Somuza's backers and his critics agree that one of his big problems is to reconcile mu- tually conflicting desires: to keep the family dynasty 177 power at home and to project a democratic image abroad. Anastasio's father took power by coup in 1936. A Somoza has served as president all but four years since then. The current Camrose felloiv in wrong place at ivrong time CAMROSE, Alia. (CP) Provincial Judge J. L. Spar- ling said it was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time when lie fined a city man ?25 on a charge of operating a motor vehicle when unsafe to do so.

Police wore on the scene immediately, stepping from their slightly dented patrol car to survey the damage. president was elected in 1967. Somoza is sensitive to the charge of one-family rule and has made a deal of sorts with the will step down in May when his term ex- pires and be replaced by an ex- ecutive triumvirate consisting of two Liberals and one Con- servative. He will ran for a six- year term in 1974. The current campaign is a prelude to February elections to select an assembly to draw up a new constitution. Record world grain harvest is forecasted LONDON (eutcr) A record world grains harvest was forecast for 1972 here by experts in the Commonwealth secretariat. After assessing this year's production estimates for wheat, barley, oats, rye and maize, the experts said they expected world p r o d u c lion, excluding China, to reach 770 million tons per cent more than 1971. After allowing for domestic consumption, they anticipated the export tonnage needed to meet world demands might de- cline by about five per cent. The size of this world trade might be amended If there Is an expansion in food-aid to the Indian subcontinent following the Indo-Paklstan war. mendous increase in health costs. Added to considerable hospital construction and Im- provements are comprehen- sive hospital insurance and free diagnostic service with medical care superimposed in 1969. In the same period the population increased by about persons. The government's contribu- tion jumped from about ?1G million in 1960 lo million in 1965. During the next five years it doubled again to million and Health Minister Roberts says in the current financial year well over million will be spent to help provide good health services. The average gross fee for .service payments to doctors during 1969-70 was: general practitioners medical specialists and surgi- cal specialist How- ever, one GP earned more than the highest paid special- ist, as compared with the specialist, a surgeon, earning The lowest payment, went to a surgeon. NET INCOME HIGH Dr. W. David Parsons of the Newfoundland Medical Asso- ciation says the shortage of doctors in the province is the main reason why the average not professional income of Newfoundland doctors is the highest in Canada. He said: "The fee schedule is much the same 86 Ontar- io's but because of the short- age, Newfoundland doctors see more patients, work longer hours and conseqeuntly receive higher earnings." Dr. Harry Roberts of St. John's, president of the Cana- dian Medical Association, says doctors must take t he lead in curtailing exorbitant medical-care income among some colleagues. The development of a medi- cal college has helped to it- tract more doctors to the province and is also an In- ducement for young New- foundlanders considering the profession. Dr. Ian Rusted, dean of medicine at Memorial Univer- sity's school of medicine, says 33 of 43 students accepted for first-year studies last fall are Newfoundlanders. m SIMPSONS-SEARS We Sell Fashion By The Yard Our Fine Fabrics, Your Imagination Click To Make The Look of Today!
