Inspectors protest EDMONTON The Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors has passed i resolution criticizing the Quebec government's practice of hiring uncertified personnel to do public health inspectors' work. The institute's incoming Jim Wocks of Red said at the annual convention use of unqualified personnel by the Quebec government seriously impairs the quality of public health service provided by the people of that EDMONTON The Alberta Supreme Court should have the power to order property transfers in cases involving divorce says a law reform group. In a working paper on matrimonial support the Alberta Institute of Law Research and Reform suggests the Alberta Supreme Court should have wider powers to deal with including the power to order or approve a lump sum payment in final settlement of a claim of support. Proposals in the 116-page paper are subject to change in light of public comments received. One proposal is that support should work both ways with husband and wife having reciprocal responsibilities. The working paper also suggests provincial law be brought into line with the Federal Divorce Act. Recognizing problems in collecting support the paper recommends more effective garnishee and security provisions and examines alternative systems of collecting support. Also considered were situations involving the common law annulling a marriage and the wife's right to use her husband's credit. The Institute of Law Research and Reform was set up by the University of the provincial government and the Law Society of Alberta. Rabies cure in sight ASTRO REALTY INSURANCE LTD. HAS Residential Building Lots For Sale Call any Astro Realtor 328-7748 MEXICO CITY A Mexican doctor said Friday a four-year-old boy has recovered from rabies and the case could point the way to a less painful vaccine or even a cure for the disease. Dr. Enrique Cifuentes visited the Centre for Disease Control in Fri- day with blood and urine specimens from the boy. On his return from Atlanta later Dr. Cifuentes said he hoped the case would lead to major strides in anti- rabies treatment. He said the bitten last month by a rabid dog in Mexico recovered without medication apparently because he had an- tibodies in his bloodstream. The boy's blood and spinal fluid were being tested to es- tablish the existence of the an- tibodies. He said laboratory tests es- tablished the boy did have rabies. If other tests confirm the it will be only the third known case of a recovery from the disease. The other two known cases of recovery were in the United States and Brazil. OTTAWA Political prophets may be waist-deep in confusion over who will win Monday's federal general but the public may be able to detect voting trends early by watching candidates' fortunes in several key ridings. From Newfoundland to British there is a substantial number of marginal seats that could reveal a swing after the polls close. Most marginal ridings will be straight two-way but in some a third party will enter the fray. A survey based on 1972 re- sults has shown that 91 rid- of them in Ontario- had victory margins of 10 per cent or while 27 of those were won by a two-per-cent margin. Results in those ridings probably will deter- mine which party will form the government. As. returns pour in from Newfoundland a half-hour before the Maritime first attention may be focussed on Bonavista- one of seven ridings in the sea-girt province. In that Progressive Conservative John Lundrigan is expected to give Liberal David Rooney a tough battle in what is traditionally Liberal territory. In Nova many observers say the industrial riding of Cape Breton-East Richmond seems ripe for a turnover to the New Democratic Party's Father Andrew Hogan. But if Conservatives James MacDougall can win the riding held in the last Parlia- ment by fellow party member Donald the party's present Maritime's strength may hold up. Two New Brunswick con- stituencies could switch. One of may be lost to the Conservatives if former Moncton mayor Leonard Jones steals enough votes from the official Conservative Charles Thomas. Mr. who won Mon- cton by votes in originally lost the Conser- vative nomination to Mr. an opponent of federal but was rein- stated by party leader Robert Stanfield. Ontario is seen as the key to the election by many observers. After the Conservatives held 40 the Liberals 36 and the NDP 11. Half of are marginal. Liberal-held York- won by Revenue Minister Robert Stanbury by votes in has swung with the winner in every elec- tion since it was created in 1953. This time Conservative Ron a well-known former CBC is putting up a strong campaign against Mr. who had a majority in 1968. In the Con- servatives are trying hard to knock off New Democrat Doug Rowland in Selkirk. Mr. Rowland beat Conservative Dean Whiteway by only 30 votes in but NDP Premier Ed Schreyer has been working for him in this campaign. NDP fortunes in Saskatche- wan could be given a boost if former MP Rod Thomson re- takes Battleford-Kindersley for his party. Mr. Thomson held the riding by 642 votes in 1968 but lost it to Conservative Norval Horner by 251 in 1972. The Liberal candidate in 1972 had about behind the leaders. In British several ridings will feature three-way contests between the Conservatives and the NDP. won by Liberal Len Marchand by only 714 votes in could fall with a swing to the Conser- vatives. Mr. Marchand had a majority in 1968 reduced substantially in the last elec- tion as both Conservatives and the NDP gained on him. won by Ed Nelson of the NDP in 1972 by 289 could indicate how the NDP will fare in B.C.
