patients have the right to reject life- prolonging treatment The survey showed that 95 per cent of participating physicians said terminally-ill patients should not be required to endure further treatment when their cases are hopeless Magazine officials said at a news conference this week that the response to the survey doctors out of 29.000 who read the magazine indicates doctors are concerned about the question. Eighty-two per cent of the respondents said 'he decision on terminating treatment for a patient suffering pain and in- dignity should be made by the physician. If the choice is narrowed between a committee of a legal or the patient's own 61 per cent of the doc- tors said the decision to discontinue life support services should be made by the medical committee. Twenty-five per cent thought the patient's next of km should decide The carried out in a five-question revealed no sharp divisions of opinion between religious or ethnic groups A magazine official at the news conference said the survey was not connected with the Canadian Medical Association which last month passed a resolution that it is ethical for a doctor to write on a dying patient s chart He said the survey is the first known sampling of such a large and representative body of Canadian physicians on a variety ol questions relating to euthanasia The study also reveals that Canadian doctors are not agreed on a definition of sometimes called mercy killing need to discuss one responding doctor said 'At the moment we are so conscious of avoiding abuse of eu- thanasia that we allow many patients and their relatives to sui- fer needlessly Promising roles few for women in Hollywood TORONTO After seven years in To- ronto actress Susan Clark has one major complaint about the movies are supreme in movies and women are nowhere 'I'm out of my the 30- year-old actress said belong in the Hollywood of the when the Katharine the Bette Davises and the Garbos were the romantic allowed to display interesting characterizations Miss Clark said today's Hol- lywood offers three stereotyped roles for women she is the harridan wife you know is a lady because sne wears gloves Next is the with low-cut dress and her mangled grammer Then there's on-the- dead-from-the-neck-up freedom seeker ve done all Miss Clark said MIGS Clark left Toronto in 1966 for a contract with Universal Studios She now earns roughly a year But she has complaints 'Universal has failed to shape me into an instantly commodity But I guess I'm the only other Cana- dian apart from Genevieve Bujold who s made it in Hollywood Miss Clark said the seven years with Universal were years of 'jungle fighting and scratching in a man s showbiz world but said she enjoyed most of it I ve paid mv union dues with a few scars but I've travelled met fascinating movie people and generally had a hell of a good time No regrets She found that the male su- perstars she has among them Robert Redford Clint Rock Hudson and Hurt all seem to have certain things in com- mon They re all retiring with very private per- she said Miss Clark now is actively engaged in bf-coming a film producer seeking Canadian scripts that will allow her to show both her business and acting acumen PUBLIC BINGO _ 16 GAMES BLACKOUT Until LETHBRIDGEELKS LODGE ROOM EVERY p.m. CASH BINGO ST.
