Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Basford Urges Doctors To Use Generic Drugs OTTAWA (CP) Affairs Minister Ron Basford says he would like to sec doc- tors prescribe generic drugs, rather than brand-name drugs, far more often than they do. ''This is one way of keeping the price he said under questioning for a television pro- gram. Mr. Basford said there is a "phoney argument" that the only safe drugs are brand drugs, those sold under a brand N.W.T. Council Awaits Chance To Run Show YELLOWKNIFE, N..W.T. (CP) control over north- ern affairs may be fairly close for the Northwest Territories Legislative Council, Commis- sioner Stuart Hodgson said here. "It's really anybody's guess." he said, "Council may have the capability to run things in. maybe, four years." Mr. Hodgson, head of the N.W.T. government spoke at the close of council's last ses- sion here before it is disolved prior to territorial general elec- tions Dee. 21. "History will show you as the fathers of development in the N.W.T. you won some tough fights, some real cliff hangers from Ottawa. The council, seven elected and four appointed members, offi- cially ends its term Aug. 4. One of many changes to the N.W.T. Act in Ottawa recently extends' the tenure of the next council to four years and increases size to 10 elected members. Mr. Hodgson gave-assent to nine bills considered by council during the 43rd session, among them a medical care ordinance that provides premium-free in- for all residents and is scheduled to be introduced April 1, 1971. Seven of the bills dealt with enabling legislation made neces- sary by amendments to the N.W.T. Act.

Nostalgic Farewell Program LONDON (AP) Dame Mar got Fonteyn, Rudolph Nureye' and other stars danced a nos talgic farewell to Britain's firs fcnight of the ballet, Sir Freder ick Ashton. Ashton, 64, is retiring after 35 years as choreographer for Sad- ler's Wells Ballet and its succes- sor, the Royal Ballet. In honor of th'e occasion, the Royal Ballet danced a glittering program of extracts from many of the more than SO ballets Ash- ton has choreographed. "There can never have been such a choreographic retrospec- tive before, and I do not. see how another of this kind and on this level is likely in our life- wrote John Percival, bal- let critic of The Times. The farewell program in- cluded giant photo projection) of Ashton's first works, followe< by live extracts from his bal- lets. Ashton plans to work in re- tirement on the choreography ol a ballet to celebrate Beetho- ven's 200th centenary this year. Border Drug Curb Working NEW YORK (AP) The United States commissioner of customs, Myles J. Ambrose, an- nounced here that 760 narco- tics seizures and 658 arrests have been made in the first six weeks of the customs bureau's intensified enforcement pro- gram to curb smuggling of il- licit drugs into the country. The value of the seizures is esti- mated to be about Ambrose said. The breakdwon includes cocaine, heroin, mari- juana, hashish, "dangerous drug tablets" and LSD. DROPS GRENADE SAIGON (AP) South Vi- etnamese soldier accidentally dropped a hand grenade in a theatre, killing seven persons and wounding 30 others, the government news agency, Viet- nam Press, reported Monday. It said the accident occurred Thursday night in Ban Me Thucat, a province car' in the central highlands. name rather than a name based on their class or characteristics. He also said there is evidence that large international firms ai'e working to thwart a govern- ment cost-cutting program' and added that if efforts to stimu- late competition in the industry don't work "we'll have to look at other methods." Other points covered by Mr. Basford on the CTV program Question Period, taped Friday for viewing Sunday afternoon: has been progressing on a new package labelling act, "which I think will go a long way to correcting a lot of prob- and he hopes it will be introduced at the parliamentary session beginning in October. is continuing on a toy standard, which will be pub- lished "in a matter of weeks." stronger anti-trust law is "desperately" needed in Can- ada, and judges acting under the existing law have imposed ridiculously low fines. "I hope we can have a better law with more teeth in it. Our present combines law doesn't cover services, you know, financial services, that sort of thing." Mr. Basford held that Canada is making "considerable pro- gress" in fighting inflation and has done much better than 'other countries. But he declined to say whether he thinks the govern- ment should embark on mea- sures beyond its present policy of trying to persuade industry and labor to accept voluntary restraints on wage increases and profits. Mr. Basford said "all sorts of surveys" have shown that Cana- dians pay inordinately high pre- drug prices. This government had stepped in with reduced tariffs on im- ported drugs, with other lax re- visions and with changed patent rules making it possible for a greater number of companies to get into drag manufacturing, thereby cuUing costs and prices. The broadening of production rights applied to some 30 manu- facturers, "people who are say- ing that they will be selling at 20 to 50 per cent less tnan the big international brand name houses are doing." But, Mr. Basford said, "we're finding that the big interna- tional firms are working in Eu- rope trying to dry up those sup- plies of unbranded drugs which is a. matter of real concern."
