"There is no real difference between modern Catholic hos- pitals and non-Catholic hospi- Mr. Dehler said. "T h e layman as well as the religious should be entitled to take on any hospital job for which he is competent." Choice of persons to fill hos- pital jobs should be on the ba- sis of competence and integrity rather than institutional loyal- ly- Mr. Dehler criticized those who wish to continue to put the traditional church loyalties of the Catholic hospital in first I place in the order of priorities. "Their dedication is unques- tionable, but their judgment suspect. "They are mstitutional-mind- ed in an age ot pcrsonalism and they forget that the age of personalism is merely a new awareness of the old personal- ist tradition of the Christian Church." Mr. Dehler said the purpose of the Catholic hospital is the well-being of the sick in the community which it serves, not the survival of the institu- tion." Lawyer Jailed Ou Drug Charge SURREY, B.C.
