BEWILDERED PROBIES President of St Michael's medical staff. Dr N A Hovan, told graduands he had "watched them come into the hospital as bewildered probies and change to charming, sophisticated la- dies who comfort human beings who are depressed or afraid of pain "No matter what you do or where you go, we will al- ays be proud of he said Presentation of the diplo- mas by Judge Byrne, was then followed by graduates reciting the international pledge, received Vera Koppenstem, class of '56 The subsequent musical in- terlude by the Anne Campbell Singers was of the high calibre audiences have come to ex- pect from this group Featured speaker, Dr. James Oshiro of Coaldale, president of the Alberta Med- ical Association and Chancel- lor of the University of Leth- bndge, said "we as physicians have always had a close as- sociation with and elaborated on the concepts and developments occurring in the health field HEALTH A PRIVILEGE Physicians and nurses had always realized diagnosis, treatment and ultimate re- covery were influenced by the environment, he pointed out not merely the physical "but the social environment a? well "We are inseparable from the environment, and health and social development are virtually indivisible. "The cost has governments he claimed. "They don't know how they are go- ing to cope with it. They be- lieve it is the right of peo- ple to have this health care 'But I would like you to lemejnber although it is your right to have health care, health is a privilege "If you're going to abuse it no amount of money is going to solve that particular problem DICIPLINES MUSHROOM Dr Oshiro also focussed on "the dramatic changes which occur in the field of technology "Forty years ago when St. Mike's was built, there were virtually two health care di- ciplmes physicians and nurses "Today there are some 160 categories of health care Tiiis mushrooming of health care diciplmes has made us realize what a complex thing health care has become "It has made us physicians and nurses reassess our roles and our relationship to other health care personnel There is real danger he warned that "we could forget the very reason of our exis- tance the best possible health care the finan- cial restraint and resources available to us SEPARATION' CHALLENGED Explaining that he was aware" of the reason for the separation of the ser- vice and education aspects of nursing taking place at St Michael's, he said "I would like to challenge this "There is to nursing as veil as the practising of medicine, an art as well as a science Dedication, compassion, un- derstanding and love can only be taught by those endowed with these values Dr Oshiro said I am not completely con- that this separation is 1 good one I am also struck by the fact that in medicine the tendency now is to place students in contact with pa- tients from almost day while nursing appears to be iroving in the opposite direc- ticn. Before offering graduands congratulations on behalT of the Alberta Medical Associa- tion, he said- "Practiss your profession with integrity so you are a credit to nursing, which has a long record of universal service and dedication Valedictorian Niane Nason spoke of the class's "courage and pride which will inspire others to say 'A St. Michael's graduate welcome1' She thanked all who had contributed to the support of the new RNs during their training, and told her class- mates that "today marks the end of the old life and the beginning of the -1973- Graduating classes Dental nurses meet Neil Crawford, Alberta's Min- ister of Health and Social De- velopment will be featured speaker at the annual conven- tion of the Alberta Dental Nurses and Assistants Associa- eJLocat Jva SI Andrew's Women's Fed- up by June 13 Further details PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES 2 JACKPOTS IETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upiluin) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. N.

About 40 per cent of an average general practitioner's patients were over 65 and took up 65 par cent of his time Society is wrong to presume the elderly should retire to tend their gardens, he said "It is socially indefensible to prohibit the elderly from work- ing and economically unsound to suppose that the working force will be able to support the high number of elderly peo- ple in the future." The most important failure in rhe diagnosis of ths elderly is the failure to show genuine concern for their health, he said The elderly felt rejected as a result and were reluctnat to complain of ailments. tion, which will be held Wednesday through Fri- day at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel Dr. Ronald G Dickson of Drumbeller, president of the Al- berta Dental Association, will be guest speaker at the ADNAA executive dinner Wednesday. which will be followed by a social gathering organized by Lethbridge dental nurses and assistants.
