Mrs. Ware, a practical nurse with a history of heart trouble, may lose her house because she failed to pay in taxes and penalties. The house was bought by the Chicago real estate brokers who specialize in seizing tax delinquent prop- erty. Patient fell off examining table LONDON (CP) Britain's elaborate machinery for con- trolling prices and incomes, set up by the last Conservative government, has been officially condemned to the scraphead by Labor Prime Minister Harold Wilson. It has been vilified by vir- tually every member of Wil- son's cabinet, denounced as one of the most divisive social evils of the century. But the controls remain in place, untouched by the minority government since it came to power after the Feb. 28 general election. Labor pledged during the campaign to dismantle all curbs on incomes immediately after winning the election. The Tories' methods of holding down prices were to be torn away and replaced with what Labor leaders said would be a far tougher set of policies. Neither objective has been achieved nor has there been any apparent effort to start clearing away the control mechanisms. As always in such cases, the reasons for Labor's delay are an intricate combination of psychological, political and economic factors. But in a nutshell, informed government sources say. the basic explanation of why the incomes policy has not been changed is that Labor fears the consequences of a sudden return to free-market bargaining. Meanwhile, the government New in lift CALGARY (CP) A Calgary woman who fell off an examining table during an epileptic seizure and broke her arm has been awarded S7.500 in damages by the Alberta Supreme Court. In a written judgment handed down Wednesday, Mr. Justice A. J. Cullen found the clinic Dr. W. 0. Rothwell and associates liable for damages "pain, suffering, a degree of permanent disability, and loss of income" suffered by patient Karen Downey two years ago. "What happened here was more than an error in judgment." Mr. Justice Cullen said. "It was a failure to provide the minimum standard of care to which a patient has a right to expect from the professional attendant at a clinic." The woman fell from the table while a nurse left the examining room. Mr. Justice Cullen recalled the evidence of a nursing instructor who said an alert nurse should place an epileptic patient on the floor if the patient had to be left alone for a while.

As soon as this is completed, there will be a return to full and free collective bargaining while further constraints are imposed on prices. Controls were first imposed after a complete 150-day freeze had been placed on incomes in November. 1972. with a partial standstill imposed on prices. Their operation provides an intriguing case history of the effectiveness and ramifications of compulsory controls in an otherwise free- market economy. The systems most strident critic, rebel tory Enoch Powell, says the controls are a "damnable heresy, final proof that a government cannot operate in this fashion unless it wants to seize absolute power over every aspect of society." Former prime minister Ed- ward Heath, on the other hand, argues that in the long run there is no alternative in fighting inflation except to place official limits on price and income increases. The most devastating eco- nomic criticism is that inflation in Britain now is running at more than 15 per cent a year, one of the highest rates in the industrial world, compared with about a nine- per-cent annual increase in prices when the freeze was first imposed. Bert Mac's Cycle Ltd. 913 3rd Avenue, South, Lethbridge, Alberta Foremost Shell, Foremost, Alberta You re in Luck When You ve Got a McCulloch Chain Saw The former chancellor of the exchequer, Anthony Barber, contends that inflation during the Tory government's term in office resulted almost entirely from rising world prices, espe- cially for raw materials of which Britain is a heavy importer. Without the controls, says Barber, domestic inflation would have been far worse than it is. The contention that prices would have risen faster without official restraints is virtually impossible to prove or disprove. But while rising world prices undoubtedly play a large part in explaining Britain's inflation same is true to some extent in all informed observers agree that it is the complete cause. Home-grown products, too. showed startling price increases in areas where producers were able to exploit the inevitable loopholes in the controls. Prices of fresh foods, im- ported foods, most meats and many other vital goods proved impossible and politically difficult to control because of seasonal variations in costs of production and because strong producer lobbies brought intense pressure for exemptions. Many economists, looking back, say the price control policy was gravely weakened because the government at at the same time was pursuing a deliberate inflationary course which produced overheating and excess demand in the home market. To increase production to meet even part of this demand meant that producers literally had to raise their prices. On the incomes side, the evidence is somewhat clearer. Earnings during 1973. exclusive of overtime, increased by only about 5.5 per cent compared with the rate of nearly 15 per cent prevailing before the freeze. But in a social sense, the in- come controls had a less beneficial effect. They led to an almost constant antagonism and bitterness between the unions and government, finally produc- ing a devastating coalminers' strike and energy crisis earlier this year which was one of Heath's main reasons for calling a snap election. Under the Tory program, a price commission was set up to hear all requests for price increases. The commission had power to refuse those increases which would have boosted a firm's net profit margin above the level attained in the best two of the last five years. The commission argues that it refused proposed price in- creases totalling million million) and that this was a direct saving to consumers. of Charles LONDON (Reuter) A 20- year-old United States admi- ral's daughter was named Wednesday as the latest girl in the life of Prince Charles, heir to the British throne. The Daily Mail says Charles had requested that Laura Jo Watkins. whom he met at a cocktail party at San Diego yacht club when his navy frig- ate was visiting California in March, be invited to a party U.S. Ambassador Walter Annenberg is giving tonight to mark the end of his posting i here. j i After their initial meeting. Prince Charles asked Laura i Jo. daughter of Rear-Admiral j James Watkins. to lunch, and i they have written to each other, the newspaper reports, j It quotes Mrs. Watkins as saying her daughter, who is taking a business studies course in San Diego, flew to London last weekend to stay with the Annenbergs after receiving a letter from the' ambassador's wife.
