Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 IETHBR1DG6 HERAID Tuesday, Junn 1, 1970--------- Legion Divided Memberships OTTAWA (CP) Delegates to Uie Royal Canadian Legion's 23rd national convention were divided Monday over the ques- tion of extending legion mem- bership to non-veterans. The delegates at Otta- wa's Civic Centre held a spir- ited debate on the proposal to allow certain applicants, such as sons and daughters of vet- erans, to take affiliate member- ships. Legion executives claim the membership extension must be accepted if the veterans' organi- zation expects to survive. Opponents claim it is a Costs EDMONTON (CP) About delegates this week will debate costs and an enlarged community role for hospitals, at the annual convention of the Ca- nadian Hospital Association. Cost reductions proposed in a federal-provincial report will be debated at opening sessions Wednesday by Dr. Stanley Hai- dasz, parliamentary secretary to Health Minister John Munro, and V. H. Chadwick, board cliairman of Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C. Dr. B. L. P. Brousseau, CHA executive director, said the as- sociation questions claims in the report that savings of up to are possible. 'There are many recommen- dations which are sound. How- ever, most of the major savings ere on a long-term basis." Dr. Brosseau said many peo- ple fear that patient care may suffer in stringent cost-saving methods which stress efficiency instead of patient well-being. GOVERNMENT'S CHOICE Dr. Brosseau told a news con- ference that if it comes to a choice of who receives expen- sive treatment and who is refused, the government would have to choose because it set the limits. Many hospitals provide educa- tion and research services as well as hospital care, yet the total cost usually is presented M hospital costs, he said. He would prefer to see a separate accounting for education and re- March. There Is a trend to have doc- tors' offices situated in hospitals which extends the kind of health care available. Doctors might disagree about their office care coming under schemes, hospital insur- 'but I think the fee-for-service days are -he said.

Legion branches are presently allowed to admit non-veteran "club members" whose dues are never seen by national headquarters. Doug McDonald, Ontario pro- vincial president said that since branches have non-veterans "disguised" as members, open- ing up membership would be a logical way to legally screen ap- plicants and get a "better type of affiliate member." Roy Duokko of Thunder Bay argued the legion would be "changed" and taken out of the hands of the war veterans and there would be a danger of los- ing those old members. FELT LET DOWN Delegates arc also disap- pointed with the federal govern- ment's proposals for revised benefits for war veterans as outlined in an address Monday by Veterans Affairs Minister Jean-Eudes Dube. Mr. Dube assured delegates that action would be taken next year on a government white paper. It does not deal with the size of pensions but calls for a j range of other benefits, particu- larly for the disabled. Legion President Robert Ko- haly. said there is "no way the legion would accept" the gov- ernment's white paper propos- als. The legion should continue to demand action on a report by the g o v e r n in e nt-appointed Woods committee which pro- posed benefits that would bring an additional to vet- erans, Mr. Kohaly said. The Estevan, Sask., lawyer urged veterans to insist on in- creases in pensions and allow- ances ranging between 10 and 20 per cent on an interim basis. George R. Pearkes, grade Le- gion president and former Con- servative defence minister, dis- agreed with the convention's pessimistic mood and called Mr. Dube's address "reasonable." 'You couldn't really expect more than what he said because the government hasn't reached any decision Mr. Pearkes said.

His call came after the kid- nappers announced he would be shot for "legalizing" the execu- tion of 27 followers of Peron 14 years ago. The cardinal urged the kid- nappers to make contact with him "to establish a means of communication and avoid what could be a moral mon- strosity with unpredictable con- sequences." In a statement issued Sunday, the abductors said Aramburu was sentenced to death by a revolutionary court and would be "executed at a time and place still to be determined." The statement rejected any possibility of negotiating the re- lease of the former president, and raised fears his supporters might take similar reprisals against former Peronist lead- ers.
