Attn.: Controller Third Olympic lottery draw will be held MONTREAL (CP) Reporting an "insatiable" demand for lottery tickets, Olympic Lottery Canada announced Wednesday a third draw will be held Nov. 18, featuring two "jackpot prizes. Roger Rousseau and Julien Cote, president and general manager, respectively, of the lottery said a potential total of will be distributed to possible winners in the draw, which represents the second overhaul of the prize structure since the lottery program began. The officials also reported that the second 3.5- million ticket issue is already regarded as "fully sub- be held in Edmonton July 16 to underline the nationwide nature of the Olympic effort. The electronic televised draw will be staged in the Albertan capital on the eve of KlondikeDays celebrations and the third, providing two million-dollar prizes compared with the single jackpots in each of the first two lotteries, will be held somewhere in the Maritimes, Mr. Cote said. There will be five million tickets in the third issue. "The success of the first two lotteries show Canadians are really behind the Olympics and feel they are Mr. Rousseau told a news conference. Tickets for the third draw go on sale Friday. Figures released A financial statement showed that the lottery corporation, created under federal law, remitted to the organ- izing committee of the 1976 Montreal Olympics from the first lottery. The draw was held in Ottawa April 15. The statement put proceeds from the sale of tickets at and reported that prizes to winning ticket-holders and to sellers of winning tickets totalled Prizes lost because of cancelled tickets out of a total issue of 2.5 million had a value of Mr Rousseau, commissioner-general of the Games, and Mr. Cote said the lottery sales have been much more successful than expected. you must keep in mind that the cost of operating the Games is going to be very much higher than expected due to inflation and I think that the money will come in very handy to the organizing Mr. Cote declared. He noted that original plans called for six lotteries. This had been revised upward to eight. The organizers would try to remain within that number but demand was a factor that could not be ignored in any efficient enterprise. Bluenosers join On July 1 Nova Scotia joins the six provinces now partici- pating in the lottery and the officials expressed the hope that the other Saskatchewan and British also come in. Cost of tickets remains at each. Each of the participating provinces got five per cent of the gross revenue of tickets sold in that province to help finance amateur sports. The income was kept in reserve in the event the other provinces, where sales now are made by mail- order, decide to join. Mr. Rousseau said talks with western provincial government ministers gave grounds for optimism. The western provinces were themselves organizing a lottery and the Montreal officials wanted to-reassure them that the project would not be killed by the Olympic presence. The commissioner-general also said that thanks to the Al- berta government's high computer capability and co-oper- ation the operation of the televised draw in Edmonton would not cost the Olympics "five cents." The ticket purchaser is instructed to inscribe his name, or that of a group of purchasers, on the back of the ticket and add address and phone number. Ticket purchasers should not return the stubs of their tickets before the draw. In the case of mail purchases, however, the Olympic lottery retains the stub for safekeeping. Health planners' priorities wrong Great Values too! VANCOUVER Canadian health planners have their pri- orities wrong, the Canadian Hospital Association convention here was told Wednesday: They should not talk so much about costs and how to reduce the rate of their increase, but think of ways to keep up care quality while trying to save some money. The reminder came to the 900 delegates from provincial hospital associations and their member institutions during the 31sl annual convention of the national association. It was delivered by Dr. Howard Phones: Bus. 328-2732 Res. 328-7462 IDE ROSE HOMES Karl Wilde Manager NOW OPEN at 2102.2nd Avenue North (1 North of the Water Tower) Chinook Bonavista Wilde Rose MOBILE HOMES Take Advantage Now Of Out Introductory Opening Specials On All MOBILE HOMES Rocke Robertson, a former principal of McGill University in Montreal and a surgeon by background. Dr. Robertson, who has written numerous reports and books on health care systems and now works as a consultant in Montreal, was keynote speaker during the convention's opening session. "The spectre of unmana- geable cost is the main motivating force in what one might call the current reform movement in health care." said Dr. Robertson. "I have expressed the view that cost should not be the main consideration. "What I have questioned is the importance of cost relative to I have come down hard in favor of quality as being the key factor in any decision concerning and as the starting point in the process of planning."
