Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, June LETHBRIDGE Dateline Alberta Doctors may refrain from reviving patients Farmers are warned EDMONTON (CP) Grasshoppers in southern Alberta have nearly finished hatching but farmers north of Vulcan still have the little beasts bursting in their fields. A department of agriculture spokesman said Monday grasshopper infestation is heaviest in the Taber, Bow Island, Lethbridge areas and in a line between Empress and Acadia Valley. Michael Dolinski warned farmers to spray crop borders before or just as the grasshoppers move in Otherwise, the entire crop will have to be sprayed. Additives harmful EDMONTON (CP) Canadians are being bombarded, through their food, with 400 different chemical additives, many of which are harmful, says Sloan Alma Smith, president of the Canadian Health Food Association. Mr Smith of Penticton, B.C., said in an interview Monday that pesticides, insecticides and chemical fertilizers are the worst Beetles no problem EDMONTON (CP) The red turnip beetles which have appeared in northern Alberta recently are easy to control because they can't fly yet. an agriculture spokesman said Monday. Michael Dolinski said the beetles, which enter new rapeseed crops from the stubble of last year's rapeseed fields, are still moving on a small front because they are still walking at this early stage N-power essential BANFF (CP) The key to Canada's future energy needs will increasingly shift towards electrical energy applications and nuclear power will be called upon to answer that demand, a top nuclear scientist said Monday. Lome Gray, president Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.. (AECL) told 600 delegates attending the 84th annual meeting of the Canadian Electrical Association that Canada is in the best position in the world to meet this challenge. Stressing the need for maintaining domestic development, Dr. said "there appears to be absolutely no doubt that nuclear power for the production of electricity is essential if we are to meet the growing needs of this energy form."

AGRATEC AUTOMATIC BALE StOOKER Stocks 6 Bales in weather tight stooks. No trip ropes, no engines, fully automatic. See KEN THOMPSON or KEN DICKSON at GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Coutts Highway Box 1202 Phone 328-1141 By PETER MICHAELSON TORONTO It is eth- ically acceptable in some cases for physicians to refrain from reviving patients who lapse into comas" that will inevitably lead to death, delegates to the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) annual meeting agreed Monday. Heart-lung machines, respirators, catheters, intravenous tubes and other equipment should not be given patients who are terminally ill, thp physician-delegates agreed by a 75-to-66 vote. The resolution said the CMA recognizes "that there are conditions of ill health and impending inevitable death where an order on the order sheet by the attending doctor of 'non-resuscitation' is appropriate and ethically acceptable." It was stressed, however, that the liberty to permit patients to die must be restricted to patients whose chances of recovery are considered hopeless. The issue is linked to the "death-with-dignity" problem that doctors have tried to re- solve in recent years with the advent of new, life-sustaining medical technology. Dr. D. L. Kippen of Winnipeg told delegates that a non-resuscitation policy is already commonplace in hospitals. For some patients who are likely to die soon whether re- suscitated or not, "resuscitation is really offenders, but that preservatives and extenders also are replacing the nutrients food contains before processing. Peanut butter, for example, used to be made from crushed peanuts and therefore had nutritional value, he said, adding that other oils now are used to extend processed peanut butter and both value and taste suffer. Alcoholism treatment plan aired Changes mind Lightning storm ends 200-foot protest. EDMONTON (CP) Alcoholics should be treated in light of their individual personality characteristics and a direct attack upon their drinking behavior is not necessarily the best approach, Dr. Richard Nutter said Monday. Dr. Nutter, research and evaluations supervisor for the Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission, told the annual conference of the Canadian Foundation on Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies that candi- dates for alcoholism treatment should be considered "as individuals whose primary problem may or may not be persistent over- indulgence in alcohol." "It would be very neat and tidy if every alcoholic had the same problems. They do not. In fact, it is entirely possible for two or more individuals who have entirely different problems to be diagnosed as alcoholic, the only common bond between these two alcoholics being their use of alcohol." BE INCONSPICUOUS The treatment of alcoholism should alleviate both behavior problems and physical health problems. "Most simply put, the over-all goal of alcoholism treatment is to render the client Dr. Nutter said. "An inconspicuous person is not on welfare, is not receiving unemployment insurance payments, does not appear on the attorney- general's files as having been arrested or convicted of an offence, does not draw heavily upon health care resources, and does not appear in alcoholism treatment facilities.'' Those responsible for the treatment of alcoholics should consider where a client is in relation to this "desired degree of public his or her skills, his or her personality and ability characteristics, and his or her natural environment. "Appropriate treatment must prepare the client for, not protect him from, the physical environment he will enter after he said. Regarding an alcoholic's personality, most treatment centres "have not seriously considered the possibility that personality characteristics might also be strongly related to which kind of treatment would be effective." Government files stolen PRINCE ALBERT (CP) Thieves who took documents concerning the Saskatchewan Human Resources Development Agency (HRDA) were "probably totally an agency official said Monday. Joan Halcro, special assistant to the minister in charge of HRDA, said in an interview that the only- explanation she can think of for the break-in, which was discovered Monday morning, is that someone was seeking material that would be politically damaging to the government. However, "everything here was something that could be made public." Protester climbs down CALGARY (CP) Dave Schiedel had second thoughts about fighting to the end and climbed down from his perch atop Firestone Tire and Rubber's 200-foot water tower Monday night He said he couldn't take another lightning storm such as he experienced Sunday night. Mr. Schiedel. 27. who climbed the tower Friday to protest the company's treatment of its 240 workers here, was taken to hospital after his descent. He was reported a bit shaken and suffering from sunburn, but otherwise in good condition. The Firestone employee said Sunday he would remain on top of the tower "until I get blown off or until the company gives us a guarantee it will bargain in good faith." He told reporters via a walkie-talkie he would fight to the end. Company management cut off Mr. Schiedel's food supply earlier Monday in an attempt to force him to come down. Company officials since Friday had allowed the union Local 635 of the United Kailwav service Rubber Workers to send food, water and other essentials to Mr. Schiedel, who pulled them up with a rope. Bob Hicks, president of Local 635. said Mr, Schiedel didn't inform the union that he would climb the tower. He said that Mr. Schiedel had a safety belt, which he needed Sunday night during gusty winds. The protester had tied himself to a light standard so he would not be blown away. Mr. Schiedel and 17 other employees walked off their jobs last week. Management said the strike was illegal because there is one year left in the current contract.
