County fanners eligible for equipment grants Private clinics play health care centre role Farmers in the County of Lethbridge may be eligible for grants of up to to- ward the purchase of forage machinery under a new pro- gram announced Monday by Murray McLelland, district agriculturist. Area plan deals with population The regional plan for southwestern Alberta, to be unveiled on June 28, will try to cope with problems caused by population imbalances, Lawrence Smith, director of the Oldman River Kegional Planning Commission, said Monday in a talk to the Leth- bridge Rotary Club. He disputed forecasts of a doubled city population in 15 years. The commission's forecast was people by 1991. In the last 10 years 83 per cent of Alberta's population growth has been in Calgary and Edmonton. The south- west has had no net growth. Yet there have been major shifts. In the last 20 years the southwest's population has declined from 61 per cent rural to 46 per cent. Leth- bridge's share has grown from 22 per cent to 34 per cent. The regional plan needed Lethbridge as the focal point, yet the population be- tween Lethbridge and the next largest community (Ta- ber) is too great, he said. Fa- cilities in the major towns should be improved to an- chor people there. Most of the physical fa- cilities in this part of Alber- ta were built around 1910, when most of the settlement took place. Renewing these is now a major concern of planners. Equipment purchased, for more efficient handling of forage crops and storage, will be subsidhed through a grant to a maximum of per farmer if the farmer did not own such equipment in the last three years, Mr. McLel- land said. Excluded are trucks, trac- tors, balers and V-type stack- ers. Corporations, co-opera- tives, partnerships or individ- ual farm units are eligible for one grant, he said, and appli- cants must be farming at least 80 acres. Mr. McLelland said appli- cations will be adopted effec- tive June 15 to Aug. 31 on a first come, first served bas- is. Application may be made to the district agriculturist in Lethbridge or to the Agricul- tural Sendee Board office in Picture Butte. Receipts must accompany all applications.

By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Private enterprise is busy operating the basic commu- nity health care centre sys- tem and proving it financial- ly feasible while provincial governments in Canada are still studying the practicabil- ity of operating the same. The medical clinics pres- ently operated by private concerns include many of the medical services being considered by the govern- ment for the total health care centre concept, says the vice-president of the Medical Group Management Associa- tion of Canada. Roy L. Montgomery, also manager of the Haig Clinic in Lethbridge, claims it would make more sense to expand medical services offered by the clinics rather than spend tax dollars to build huge complexes to du- plicate many of the services already being offered by the clinics. "Nobody's disputing the feasibility of health care cen- tres, but we do believe the spending of public funds should be kept to a mini- he said in an inter- view. The government could save millions of dollars by allot- ting funds to medical clinics to help it in developing a to- tal health care unit within the present clinic concept. Family counselling, psychi- atric treatm e n t, physiother- apy and dental care could be added to the present clinic system to provide a total one- stop medical service to the community, he speculates. Most clinics presently pro- vide x-ray and medical lab facilities, heat treatment for muscle strain, allergy test- ing, minor surgery, heart monitoring services and spe- cialists in almost all fields of modern medicine. Mr. Montgomery feels health care centres would be an asset in remote areas where there are no medical clinics available to the pub- lic. In populated areas where clinics are common govern- ment funds should be used to provide Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission c o v- erage for sendees not pres- ently included in the govern- ment plan, he claims. This would make it feasible for the clinics to provide addi- tional medical services. The medical profession and the provincial government are considering establishing educational training for a new medical job classifica- tion the nurse practition- er. Mr. Montgomery claims the nurse practitioner would be an asset to the clinic in its endeavor to reduce pres- ent medical costs. Nurse practitioners would work along side the phys- ician in providing medical care to the patient, includ- ing diagnosing and treating minor medical problems on their own, he says He suggests it Is very im- portant for the medical pro- fession to discover new ways of keeping costs down where possible because the provin- cial government is reluctant to increase Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission benefits to accompany pro- posed medical fee hikes by doctors despite a tremendous increase in the cost of medi- cal materials and the cost of living. The medical clinic is ba- sically an Alberta-British Co- lumbia enterprise as there are more clinics in 'these two provinces than in the rest of Canada. Alberta has 55 medical clinics, B.C. 35, Ontario 30, Manitoba 10, Saskatchewan 4. Prince Edward Island 2, and the remaining provinces have one each.
