Dr. Arleigh Laycock of the University of Alberta nt Ed- Pill Linked With Blood Clotting LONDON (AP) New evi- dence linking the contraceptive pill with blood clotting in women who have undergone op- erations was reported today by two British doctors. Prof. Richard Doll, professor of medicine at Radcliffe Infir- mary, Oxford, and a colleague, Dr. Martin Vessey, wrote in the British Medical Journal that women taking oral contracep- tives are three or four times more likely to suffer vein and lung blood clots after surgery than non-users. They said their survey con- firmed the results of previous investigations showing the risk is greatest for women taking pills with a high estrogen con- tent. The doctors said the chief risk probably disappears if a woman stops the pill a month before her operation- and that half of all surgeons now advise this compared with only 10 per cent between 1964 and 1967. They said the survey has shown 30 hi every women taking the pill will develop blood clotting after appendix OD- erations compared with only eight in every non-users. 307 6lh SI. S. HALE OPTICAl COMPANY LTD Gary Martin Dispensing Optician 327-7151 monton told the council that the ambitious, full scale proposals for American purchase of Ca- nadian water seem to have reached an impasse on boll sides of the border because o: the extremely high cost in volved. Laycock suggested an inter- national option agreem e n might be more useful for the immediate future. Such agreements would help Canada, because they woulc provide money for researcl and development, he said, auc the options could be for mini- mal cost until quantities' o: water were actually obtainec from Canada. Water trades in the border region might even be possible. Laycocfc said such small project water developments are Hearing feasibility and negotiations between the prov- inces and Ihe state should begin soon. But he told representatives of Human Rights Offer Snubbed By Four EDMONTON (CP) Four pei-sons facing defamatory ibel charges have "specific- ally rejected legal representa- tion" by the Alberta Human Rights .Association, its presi- dent, Don Whiteside said.

They are all charged with de- libel following a po- lice seizure of literature which referred to Magistrate John .'oughlan and Trudeau. Prime Minister UN Delegate LONDON (Reuters) Britain oday named Sir Colin Crowe, 56, high commissioner to Can- ada, as its new chief delegate o the United Nations. the 11 states in the council that one roadblock to meaningful agreements was the feeling on the part of federal officials that such negotiations were likely prohibited under the fed- eral moratorium on inter-basin transfer of water.

The bid from Sercon Contrac- tors Ltd. was the lowest of 12 submitted for the project.

CLOSE Welfare Review Wanted By Sykes CALGARY (CP) Mayor Rod Sykes said Friday the city has enough money to meet its welfare costs but be wants a full review of the situation. A sharp increase in welfare payments in- June almost ex- hausted the city's so- cial assistance budget for 1970. Mayor Sykes said in an inter- view more money can be pro- vided from in a gen- eral reserve fund but before the city dips into the fund it must look closely into the mat- ter. "We must be careful to see that only genuine cases of need are receiving assistance. Wel- fare is not a way of life, It's rehabilitation program. "It's a disturbing situation t have so many people who ar unable to pay their way what is still a relatively pros perous time in Alberta." City hall statistics show cases comprising individ uals almost three times tti corresponding total in 1969 were receiving city assistanc payments at the end of June and was left in the wel fare budget. Payments for th first six months of the year were just short of tola payments for 1969.

Para-Medical Services Chopped By B.C. Govt. VICTORIA (CP) The Brit- ish! Columbia government an- nounced Friday it will no long- er pay the complete cost of para medical services under the B.C. medical plan. The move was one of sey- eral amendments to the Medi- cal Services Act passed by cab- inet order-in-council. Wesley Black, provincial sec- Enchant Water Is Okay TABER (HNS) Two mat- ters of pollution control came to the attention of the Taber Municipal District council dur- ing a recent session. Council was advised by the department of health the water supply used by the hamlet of Enchant "is within the estab- lished chemical limits for a potable water." The water source is a reser- voir. Concerning air pollution, council was advised by the de- partment of health of regula- tions, governing the operation of asphalt plants within the prov- ince. The division of vital statistics advised council monthly returns of burials and cremations by cemetery operators are no longer required. 'The Mfi may be assessed a portion of the costs of opera- tion of the Oldman River Re- gion Planning Commission, is not a member. retary and minister responsi- ble for the medical plan, sail in an interview the govemmenl will only pay 50 per cent o the costs of such services which include osteopaths, neu- ropaths, physio- therapists and similar services The balance must be paid by the patient. "We have been paying the full shot in B.C. until this par- ticular time, the federal gov- ernment has had no share in it Mr. Black said. "We feel that if the Canadian people from B.C. want these costs to be paid, then there ought to be some federal shar- ing in respect to them." Para medical services, he said, are those services not di- rectly covered by the medical profession. Another change will give the B.C. medical commission the authority for the first time to declare a doctor outside the plan. Once declared a non partic- ipant in the plan, a doctor's services would r.ot be insured under the plan nor would the commission be responsible for the payment of his services. Mr. Black said the main reason for this change was for "misuse of the mainly overcharging. Although a doctor can 'opt out of the plan if he wishes, the medical profession has asked "to strengthen their hand" in order that they might he able to discipline a physician for some just cause, he said. For any doctor declared out- side the plan, there is a 30-day notice period and the doctor tas the right of appeal to a higher court, said Mr. Black. Two Police Officers Shot On Baseball Diamond CHICAGO (AP) Two white policemen working on a com- munity friendship program were killed by sniper fire Fri- day night as they walked on a North Side baseball diamond where they had played with Hack youngsters the day be- fore. Sgt. James Severin, 38, and Patrolman Anthony Rizzato, 37, were at the Cabrini Homes housing project to talk with neighborhood youths as part of the police department's pro- gram on community relations, police said. The predominantly Negro housing development has been the scene of sporadic racial troubles. Policemen in that dis- trict call it "combat alley" be- cause of its frequent disorders. MONTREAL (CP) The issue of safety for the cop on the beat, although not officially on the agenda, was brought to the forefront at the opening ses- sion of the International Confer- ence of Police Associations which opened here Friday. More than 200 delegates rep- resenting 133 police associations across North America heard John Harrington, president of the Fraternal Order of Police- men in the U.S. say that lenient rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court were responsible for the spiralling crime" rate in that country. He said- alleged criminals were often on the street on per- sonal bonds within a few hours after then- arrest. Many atrocious crimes are committed by people who have been locked up 20 or 30 lie added. "We must find out who the hell is letting them loose after we lock them up." Ed Kiernan, president of the New York City Policemen's Be- nevolent Association, said, "My people are being shotgunned. They're being sm'ped. People drop cinder blocks on their cars from the roofs of buildings." KNOCK SINGLE PATROLS Delegates at the 18th annual meeting of the group were criti- cal that there was no manda- tory legislation in the U.S. call- ing for two-man patrols in cars. They noted that many under- staffed police forces sent men out alone in patrol cars. Constable 8yd Brown of the Metropolitan Toronto Police As- sociation and president of the ICPA said earlier in the day that the ICPA was seeking to acquire bargaining rights for all North American police depart- ments. He also said the six-day con- venti.o up-ending Wednesday, would discuss training methods, equipment and better ways to handle relations with the public, especially with alienated youth and other minority groups. "We realize that policemen are sometimes responsible for the unfortunate results of con- frontations between demonstra- tors and he said. Const. Brown said officers want to work with young people and learn their problems but lack of staff and long working hours make it impossible. Const. Brown said govern- ments should be required to bargain with police representa- tives on all matters concerning salary, working conditions and fringe benefits. If settlement can't be reached, both groups should be made to accept compulsory ar- bitration, he said, because the policeman's first responsibility is to the public.
