(CP) - A coroner's inquest into a series of 1973 deaths in Sudbury General Hospital entered its fourth day today with a sudden broadening of the enquiry's official scope and the simultaneous suggestion that only one death may be ascribed to the mistaken substitution of anesthetic gas for oxygen. The inquest started Monday as an enquiry into 22 deaths but presiding Coroner Ross Bennett told reporters Wednesday he was adding a 23rd-a woman who died last September four weeks after receiving oxygen in a new wing of the hospital. But William Shea, lawyer for the institution, told the inquest that medical charts show no fatalities were caused by anesthetic nitrous oxide before Sept. 7. That was the day six-year-old Catherine Dominic died, according to evidence given Wednesday, as a result of receiving a massive administration of nitrous oxide from an outlet of the hospital's medical-gas supply that was supposed to provide oxygen. So far in the early stages of the evidence, the Dominic girl's death is the only one that has been attributed to a suspected mix-up in the gas delivery system of the $6-million wing that opened last May. The inquest is expected to last at least three weeks. Dr. Bennett, deputy supervising coroner for Ontario, Wednesday added the name of Sylvia Taylor of Sudbury to the list of deaths being formally investigated after unexpected evidence came out that she had been given oxygen Aug. 28 in a room described earlier in technical evidence as one of the "critical areas" with respect to gas problems. Information on this death was brought out by Mr. Shea in questioning of hospital nurse Christine von Zuban. Crown Attorney John Takach complained that this information should have been provid-ed last year to the investigation, launched right after the death of the Dooiinic girl. The evidence was that Mrs. Taylor had been brought to the hospital under oxygen treatment in an ambulance suffering from a respiratory ailment. The nurse said oxygen treatment was continued for 2V2 hours from the gas outlet in the emergency treatment room without her condition visibly deteriorating. Mrs. Taylor died Sept. 26. No evidence as to the cause of her death was submitted. Nurse von Zuban testified that in the May-September period after the opening of the new wing, she knew of no gas problems in the emergency treatment room. At Mr, Takach's request, Mr. Shea provided a list of 18 people-along with their medical charts-who had been treated with oxygen in the emergency or x-ray rooms of the new wing in the same pe- riod and were "walking the streets of Sudbury today." Outside the enquiry chamber, Mr. Shea said all the persons whose deaths are being investigated-except Miss Dominic-were patients who had received oxygen treatment at some time in the same areas where the 18 who lived had been given oxygen. Miss Dominic had been given an inhalation from the oxygen outlet in the special procedures room as she was coming out of an anesthetic following an attempt to reset a broken bone in her elbow. The inquest has not yet received evidence on whether any one else was treated with supposed oxygen in that room before the mix-up was discovered immediately after the girl's death. Nor has the cause of death of any of the other 22 been brought into evidence. However, Mr. Shea said outside, the hearing that in none of the other deaths under investigation is anoxia (lack of oxygen) listed as a cause of death as it was in the death certificate of Miss Dominic. Doctor says Canada health ^unplanned^ OTTAWA (CP) - Distribution of doctors and the provision of health services is largely unplanned, Dr. Robert Non-union men cross picket line MONTREAL (CP) - More than 2,700 non-striking supervisory and non-union employees moved through picket lines Wednesday to restore partial production, as a strike by 2,600 unionized workers entered its eighth day at four nearby plants of United Aircraft of Canada Ltd. A company spokesman said the non-strikers had "free access" to the plants after a provisional injunction issued Tuesday by the Superior Court limited the number of picketers at plant gates. The unionized workers, members of local 510 of the United Auto Workers union, walked out Jan. 8 to protest contract demands. Their contract expired Sept. 21. Negotiations between the company and the union broke off Dec. 8, and "Thor Stephenson, United Aircraft president, says in a letter to the workers the last contract offer is final except for the possible "rearrangement" of benefits. The letter was made public Wednesday, but a union spokesman said the workers have not yet received copies in the mail. The company is offering a three-year contract with pay raises amounting to |1.20 hourly, a 31-per-cent increase over the life of the contract. The union is seeking $1.25 hourly, but the major stumbling block is reported to be a union demand for cost-of-living benefits. Workers earned $3.82 hourly on average under the old contract. Stanley, an investigator with the College of Family Physicians of Canada, says in a report to the federal health department. Remote areas get better medical service on a patchwork basis only when they protest loud enough, Dr. Stanley says in a 36-page report made public Wednesday. Assorted agencies make sporadic attempts to relieve areas where medical service is poor, "but there has been no organized comprehensive move to deal with the whole problem." Altruism and dedication cannot be relied on to get doctors and nurses into underser-viced, often unattractive areas, says Dr. Stanley. Incentives like more money and better working conditions are needed. Meanwhile, some attempts to reduce spiralling health care costs lead to needless economies that demoralize and repel health-care personnel, says the report completed last March. Another report, prepared by Dr. John McLeish of Toronto and Dr. Donald Nightingale of Ottawa, says more hospital administrators will be needed for the planned changes in hospital care and administration. This is reference to the movement away from expansion of intensive-care hospital facilities to expansion of facilities for disabled and chronically-ill patients, and the plans to administer health services within regional units in most provinces. The doctors recommend that consideration be given to establishing a national institute to ensure that hospital administration courses, workshops, seminars and training are adequately provided. IRON PLANT PLANNED VIRGINIA, Minn. (AP) -Inland Steel Co. plans to start construction next fall of a $70-million taconite plant near Virginia with an annual capacity of 2.3 million tons of pellets. WINNIPEG (CP) - West-fair Foods Ltd., a Winnipeg-based distributor, is buying all of the Loblaws Ltd. operations in the prairies, including the wholesale and retail food outlets of Loblaws' O-K economy stores in Saskatchewan, M. D. Booty of Winnipeg, vice-president of marketing and sales at Westfair, said, "we will be blending the two administrations together. The operations will be run by peo-)le who live in the west and mow the western Canadian market." Negotiations began about 12 months ago and the deal came to a close at the end of 1973. Westfair, a wholly-owned subsidiary of George Weston Ltd. of Toronto, now will own all of the food distribution operations of the western group of companies in the prairies. The purchase price was not disclosed. Three judges urge Agnew he disbarred ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -A special three-judge committee recommended today that former U.S. vice-president Spiro Agnew be disbarred from law practice in Maryland. The three circuit court judges said Agnew's evasion of federal income tax, acknowledged in a no-contest plea, was "deceitful and dis-honesf'and "strikes at the heart of the basic object of the legal profession. ... The recommendation goes to the Maryland Court of Appeals, which makes the final decision on whether to bar Agnew from law practice. Disciplinary actions were filed by the Maryland Bar Association last November after Agnew pleaded no contest to a federal tax charge and resigned from the vice-presidency. The association asked the three judges to disbar Agnew. As a result of the deal, Westfair ownership in western Canada is expanded to include Econo-Mart Stores, Shop Easy, Loblaws, L-Mart and O-K Economy Stores. No change in store names is expected. Corn crop set record last year WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States corn crop last year, in great demand to help rebuild consumer food supplies in 1974, was a record 5.64 billion bushels, up one per cent from 1972, the agriculture department said yesterday. The corn estimate, part of a preliminary report reviewing U.S. crop production in 1973, was about 35 million bushels less than the department forecast two months ago. It was the first general estimate of fall-harvested crop production since last November when the corn crop was put at about 5.68 billion bushels. The previous record was 5.64 billion bushels in 1971, and the 1972 output was 5.55 billion. The 1973 soybean crop, another important feed ingredient for meat, poultry and dairy production, was estimated at 1.56 billion bushels, also a record, and 23 per cent more than in 1972, the previous high. The November' estimate was about 1.57 billion bushels. The crop reporting board said in a companion report that the farm value of the 1973 com crop was a record $13.35 billion, compared with $8.7 billion for the 1972 crop. Officials said in the production report that 1973 crop output generally materialized well despite an extremely wet spring last year and severe floodings which delayed much of the planting. Court allows appeal of civic officials EDMONTON (CP) - Mr. Justice C. W. Clement of the appellate division of the Alberta Supreme Court handed down a written decision allowing an appeal by the mayor of Slave Lake and two former councillors. The men appealed against being served with notice of an application to have them disqualified from council in this community about 150 miles north of Edmonton. Mr. Justice Clement ruled that the men had resigned before being served with the application order. A Slave Lake electors group attempted to have Mayor Leo Boisvert and former councillors Leo Jantz and Lloyd Miller disqualified because of alleged improper use of their office. The electors group charges the three men voted on matters in which they had an undisclosed financial stake. An order granting the group's application to have the men served with notice of an application for disqualification was granted March 17, 1973. It was not served immediately and a second order was granted March 22. The second order was served after the men resigned March 17. The men then ran in the 1973 municipal election. The former councillors were defeated but Mayor Boisvprt won re-election. Mr. Justice Clement said the men were not members of council ultimately served with the notice of application. The Municipal Government Act allows a judge to grant such an application order if a member of council has not resigned.
