THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIB Friday, July 30, 1971 TORONTO (CP) A short- age of community pharmacies could hamper seriously the in- clusion of dings in government medical care programs, the Commission on Pharmaceutical Services saitl Thursday. The commission said in a 500- page report there was a decline of more than 200 in the number of pharmacies in Canada be- tween 1962 and 1969, with On- tario showing the greatest drop. If the trend continues, the re- port said, more communities will be left without the services I of a pharmacy, "which could impede the availability of dings to the public."

They gen- erally don't because they are bored with the same partners or have succumbed too easily to their age, a London physi- cian says. Dr. Myles Lask, a general practitioner in his 60's, urges doctors to treat the problem of sex and the aged more seri- ously. He writes in Pulse, a doc- tor's newspaper, that figures show the average man stops having regular sexual inter- course at 68 if he is married or 58 if a bachelor. If partners are reasonably healthy there is no reason sexual activity cannot go on into the 70s, 80s and 90s, Lask says.

The report also said hospitals and governments purcha se drugs for less than the retail pharmacies pay. This "discriminates against the community pharmacist and in effect, means that the consumer who pays privately for his prescription drugs is subsidizing consumers who receive their drugs from hospitals and government sources." The commission also recommended that there be a re-classification o f non-prescription drugs to identify those drugs which are restricted for sale in a pharmacy under the supervision of a pharmacist and those drugs which require the actual participation of a pharmacist at the point of Christina Onassis, 20 year eld daughter of Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, is honeymooning after being married in a civil ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada to Joseph Bokker, 47, a Hollywood real estate wanted ads purged of sex tags WINNIPEG (CP) Winnipeg's two daily newsapers lave revised their help-wanted advertisements to conform with a Manitoba Human Rights Act prohibition against sex designa-Jon.
