Haig. president of the Rotary club. Russell Haig. chairman of the local rehabilitation cosmmnee, veterans' affairs offi- cers and a number of other guests. "Hie film, one of the most in- forraatirt and inspiring bearing on the post-war program, shown here, reveals what amputation cases can do. For every amputation case there are ten other disabled as result of war incurred disabilities, said Mr. Bishop. There are no amputation cases unemployed in what is known as the Calgarv district which Uv> eludes aU the southern half of the province of Alberta. Employers should be proud ol this: and don't imagine for one moment that the D.V.A. lacks appreciation of the employers co-operation, he declar- ed, in the southern half of Al- berta there are 70 amputation cases of them double amputations. Five have lost both legs and one, hands: all are well started on good careers. Tribute U Leading up to the point of em- ployment one must first recognize the superb skill and devotion shown bv the medical services, said the speaker. Never before has this pro- fession had a greater opportunity to exercise its knowledge and energy, and it takes plenty of both to fully utilize modern medicine and surgery. At the Colonel Bel- cher hospital and the convalescent hospital at the old No. 2 wireless school, Calgary, there are occu- pational and educational depart- ments as well as the casualty re- habilitation section. ''This section is our own particular department and has to do with all problems relating to the full re-esiablish- ment of casualties. This necessi- tates the closest with civilians in all walks of life, espe- cially with employers. Many tech- niques have been devised for plac- ing phvsicallv disabled ineii in em- ployment." said air. Bishop.
