The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta First in Canada Alberta drug control plan introduced EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta College of Physicians is introducing a prescription control system to cut down on the number of phoney prescriptions passed by drug addicts. Doctors will be issued secret code numbers which they will give to pharmacists when placing a verbal prescription or if the pharmacist wants to verify a written prescription. L. H. Le Riche, deputy registrar of the college, said the system is the first of its kind in Canada. He said the numbers will be used for prescribing drugs controlled or restricted under the Food and Drug Act. Included are barbiturates, amphetamines, tranquillizers and drugs with limited medical use such as MDA and LSD. Narcotics such as morphine and demerol would also be included. "There is enough abuse of drug prescriptions to merit an effort by the profession to limit said Dr. Le Riche. He said the number of forged signatures on stolen prescription pads and telephone calls from addicts imitating doctors voices is increasing. The system is already in use in the United States and Sweden. The number in the U.S. is changed annually while in parts of Sweden the confidential prescription numbers are changed monthly. Dr. Le Riche said the first numbers used will likely be the doctor's registration number but that the number will be changed when necessary. investment Lougheed gets weapon he needed GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE FRIDAY SUNSET H LPre Lethbridge..... -6 -23 .05 Pincher Creek.. -3 -26 .05 Medicine Hat -9-22 Edmonton -19-42 Grande Prairie -8 -52 Banff.......... 14 -13 Calgary........ -11 -26 .01 Victoria........39 33 .93 Penticton.......33 27 .08 Vancouver...... 39 32 .20 Saskatoon...... -13 -37 .01 Regina -7-29 Winnipeg...... -10 -25 Toronto........43 37 35 Montreal .......38 33 Halifax.........'34 33' St. John's.......23 13 Fredericton..... 36 33 Chicago 54 40 Miami..........81 67 Los Angeles.....60 48 Honolulu........ 82 69 Mexico City..... 75 46 Las Vegas......57 33 Phoenix 37 FORECAST: Lethbridge Medicine Hat Today and Friday, cloudy with light snow beginning in the morning, highs today zero- five above.

The action followed the sud- den lifting of United States re- strictions on foreign in- vestments by its citizens, with which Canada had co-operated in exchange for exemptions from the rules. "In view of the termination of the U.S. program, the with- drawal of our guidelines is ap- Mr. Turner said. One being dropped had re- quested investors not to buy U.S. securities subject to the U.S. interest equalization tax, and had provided that the de- partment of finance and the Bank of Canada would dis- courage the issue of securities in Canada by foreign borrow- ers. President Richard Nixon suspended the 1963 interest equalization tax Tuesday. It had been designed to stop Americans from seeking investments abroad in order to get higher interest rates. The U.S. treasury department said the interest equalization tax and other restrictions on foreign investment were being dropped because of improve- ment in the U.S. trade balance, the strengthening of the American dollar in foreign markets, and "the desirability of avoiding official restrictions on the flow of capital to points of need at a time when the balance-of- payments positions of many countries have been sharply changed by the repercussions of the higher oil prices."

EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Peter Lougheed had plenty of oil and gas and a shortage of another valuable commodity time. The national energy confer- ence last week made few per- manent decisions about the first two commodities. Its main result was. to grant the provinces time, 60 days to agree on new energy policies, particularly on oil prices. This, Alberta officials say, is just what Mr. Lougheed needed. He needed time to negotiate privately with the federal gov- ernment over oil prices, instead of with all the other premiers. He needed time to put into motion the mechanisms for challenging the federal export iax on oil and to go ahead with plans to ensure that Alberta gets the best possible price for its oil. Premier Lougheed acknowl- edges, that his Progressive Conservative government had been rushed in its preparations for last week's federal-provincial energy conference which followed by about 1% months the province's major overhaul of energy legislation. But now he has time to start negotiations with Ottawa over the oil prices which must be settled before April 1 and to get Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission into operation. The commission is seen a major Alberta weapon in its fight for a better energy deal. It is empowered to take over from industry the right to set prices for crude oil. The federal government has control over interprovincial or international trade.

Fleury was convicted of the charge by a lower court last Oct. 3. He picked up a 19-year- old woman hitch-hiking on Highway 1 near Brooks Feb. 1, 1973, drove her east to Tilley, Alta., where the two had intercourse. Defence counsel William Stilwell said his client had been receiving psychiatric treatment since the incident. Alberta officials say they hope to avoid any federal jurisdiction over provincial prices by completing all oil sales wholly within the province. .What the companies do with their oil after they buy it in Al- berta at the commission's price is of no concern to the province, the officials say. The commission, under the cabinet's authority, is charged with getting the best possible price for the oil. Time granted at the confer- ence benefits Alberta in another way. Ottawa had been pushing for continuation of the oil price freeze until May 1 but a com- promise reached over a close-door luncheon will end it on April 1. Aside from time, Alberta considers the benefits of the conference to be on principles. Provincial officials say they believe the conference acknowledged provincial, rather than federal, control over natural resources and agreement that the producing provinces should receive a fair price for their oil. On specifics. Alberta gained a federal commitment that the province's domestic oil price would be allowed to increase on April 1. although the amount of the gain has still to be negotiated. But Premier Lougheed says Alberta itself made no com- mitments at the conference, except to honor the price freeze until April 1.

UNITED TRUST COMPANY considerably says Charles Drury, president of the treasury, after a two-day conference in which officials of the two countries agreed on closer technical and trade co- operation. The two countries established working groups to promote trade and travel between the them, the use of Canadian electrical equipment and technology in Mexico and perhaps even- tually the location in Mexico of a nuclear reactor along the Canadian Candu design. Currently, the Mexican gov- ernment has selected the United States. enriched uranium reactor for its next power project but Drury said Wednesday Mexico will need more plants and the Mexican authorities will look closely at Candu. The communique issued at the completion of the two-day conference Tuesday said the Canadian ministers, which in- cluded External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp and Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie, stressed the advantages of natural uranium plants. Drury said the Mexicans may also be in the market for Canadian long-range transmission equipment as well as technical aid. Canada proposed a joint venture to produce railway passenger cars in Mexico "as well as the supply of locomotives, railway stock and rails from Canada under appropriate long-term financing the communique said. WORRIED ABOUT U.S. Both countries depend heavily on the United States market for disposal of their exports. Drury said there is a feeling on both sides that there should be more diversification. Mexico said it is trying to divert more exports from the U.S. to other markets. The Canadians said more diversification would reduce vulnerability. The two countries signed an agreement to end double tax- ation and the Canadians agreed to take another look at possible Canadian membership in the Organization of American States (OAS) though Sharp in- dicated the OAS may have to pay less attention to ideology and more to practical matters before Canada will consider full membership. In discussing the world energy crisis, the Canadians emphasized the underdeveloped countries have obligations as well as rights, pointing particularly to the Arab oil-exporting countries which have forced up world prices. Both sides expressed concern that because of the huge price increase, the developing countries which depend heavily on oil imports will have to use virtually all the money they receive in developing aid to cover the oil price increase.
