E. CROSS WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN Condition Set For Transfer Of Shares A transfer of shares in Cable- vision Lethbridge Ltd. has been made contingent by the Cana- dian Radio-Television Commis- sion on a reduction to 25 per cent of ownership by Selkirk Holdings Ltd. The CETC has demanded the decrease because of Selkirk Holdings' ownership of both CJOC radio and CJLH-TV. Given conditional approval was a switch of shares from Famous Players Canad i a n Corp, to Agra Industries Ltd. and Lethbridge Television Ltd. a subsidiary of Selkirk. Famous, a U.S.-bascd firm, is in the process of divesting itself of all but 20 per cent of its broadcasting interests in line with government regulations on foreign ownership of Cana- dian broadcasting companies. Agra Industries, a Canadian conglomerate, has interests in other Lethbridge firms, such as Western Caissons Ltd. Province Returns Invoices At the monthly meeting of the Lethbridge Municipal Hos- pital board, Andy Andreachuk administrator, reported that the Alberta Department of hea'in had returned invoices toljlling for equipment purchased in 1969. They had been returned be- cause the department is not presently reimbursing except for prior approvals, due to the financial situation. Mr. Andreachuk noted that this is a reversal of the posi- tion of the department. Up to now, approval was not neces- sary except for items over In presentation of the finan- cial report, Mr. Andreachuk noted that in the five months ending May 1, 1970, the hospi- tal revenue was Ex- penditures were INDIAN ASSOCIATION LEADERS Harold Cardinal, right, was re-elected president of the Alberta Indian As- sociation of Alberta, at the association's annual meeting at Standoff.

Land Approved For Historic Site Means Money For Local Psychiatric Wing Hospital Funds Freed Alberta HealUi Mini s t e James Henderson said in Lethbridge Thursday a provin cial government freeze on hos pital construction has been lifl ed and a number of project are to receive final approval. In line with this develop ment, funds mil be made available for the construction of a psychiatric wing in Lethbridge hospital. "An up dated concept o mental health care as recom mended by the Blair repor will eventually de centralize mental health Mr Henderson said. "As an in terim. measure we intend to make more beds available existing facilities." Mr. Henderson said he wasn't prepared to support the proposal which came from joint meeting of the Calgary and Lethbridge mental health planning councils suggesting that the Alberta Hospital Claresholm be turned into an active treatment centre. Mr. Henderson said thai while he hadnt' seen the de- tails of the proposal, "if councils were suggesting ac live treatment similar to ser vice we have in Ponoka these would not be considered they are contradictory to the recommendations of the B Report on Mental Health Ser vices." Mr. Henderson said the plac ing of all three hospitals in Claresholm under a single board, integrating professiona services, was a sensible idea but probably would create fi nancial difficulties. The Oldman Hiver Regional Planning Commission Wednes- day approved the subdivision of two acres of land west of the Lethbridge airport as an historic site.

"Acne is a disorder of the glands of the skin, and reasons so many teen-agers are plagued with this 1 lem lies in fact that so many glands in their bodies are changing and be- coming more ac- tive. It is at this age that their skin can tend to lecome more oily, which in urn block the skin pores, re- ulthig in pimples and black- leads. Acne is not necessarily a result of either bad dietary abits or "not being clean." Good, lasting skin care is us- ually the answer, but the best ;dvice is always, "Please talk o your doctor about this prob- em." Free parking? Of course. Free prescription delivery? Of ourse! Friendly, helpful scr- ice? Of course! Stubbs Phar- at 1500 9th Ave. S. OF COURSE! While he indicated that the psychiatric hospital in Ray- mond would likely be phased out in a few years, Mr. Hen- derson said that the future of the similar facility in Clares- holm was, at present, in- definite. One problem in all psychia- tric hospitals is that of attract- ing personnel. "Lethbridge has trouble at- tracting Mr. Henderson said, "so has Po- ncka. We have not been abla to overcome that Medicare Alberta Health Mini s t e r James Henderson told a news conference in Leth bridge Thursday about 150 applica- tions have been received from Alberta residents wanting to remain outside the provin cial Medical Care Insuranci program. "As a matter of principle, or for religious reasons where people feel they do not _ want to have the government invading their health needs, it is quite within the provision of tho medical care plan to opt Mr. Henderson said. "How ever, once this has b.een done, the decision is irreversible for a twelve month period. After that time, if they wish to apply for the program they may do so." Mr. Henderson explained that opting out is an expensive choice. "The combined prem- ium for hospital and medical care for a family is whereas anyone opting out must be prepared to pay a minimum of per day just on hospital care alone." Mr. Henderson stated the program was being expanded to offer optional insurance to cover drags. "We will buy up existing Blue Cross he said, "and offer these through the commission to people who have not qualified for group coverage. Elderly p e r s ons sometimes have not been able to get into a Blue Cross group. We will be able to give drug coverage for those who wish it for an additional annual pre- mium of Mr. Henderson said that the government would collect ap- proximately million this year in premiums. "People claim the cost of the premiums is high. However, without this Police Warn On Theft City police are warning car owners with cassette tape rec- orders to lock their cars. There is an increasing num- ber of thefts of these recorders being reported to police from owners who neglected to lock iheir cars. Anyone who doesn't lock his car and leaves the tapes and recorder in plain view is invit- .ng someone to steal them, a lolicc spokesman said. CLIFF BLACK, R.D.T., C.D.M.
