Andy Andreachuk, hospital district administrator, said the reduction in occupancy and length-of-stay rates can be at- tributed to a new bed utiliza- tion system adopted by the hos- pital.

The warning is not required lor cigars and pipe tobacco al- though that kind of smoke is often inhaled. The warning on Canadian cigarette packs reads: "The de- partment of national health and welfare advises that danger to health increases with amount smoked." Nol satisfied with the effect of the federal regulations, the rilish Columbia government st fall required that all cigar- te advertising including im- orted cigarettes carry the arning. Alberta Health Minister Neil rawford said in an -interview hat the provincial government ere doesn't plan any action re- arding the health hazard of racking. While the idea of a warning good, he said it is doubtful tat the province should enact Ifercnt regulations from the cderal government. Recently Health Minister larc Lalonde asked cigarette lamifacturers to. include tar and nicotine figures with cig- rette ads. The federal minister said that at and nicotine contain eancer- roducing and irritating chemi- a Is. In an interview in Edmonton, 'eter Stein, assistant director if the .Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission and 'a member of the Le Dain Com- mission on the Non-Medical Jse of Drugs, said government regulations can serve to create climate of thought in which >eople will consider the dangers drug use.

Mr. Stein said a Le Dain re- port to be presented to the fed- eral cabinet at the end of March1 commission's final report deal with the effect of ad- vertising on drug abuse. The Canadian medical asso- ciation has called on the fed- eral government to take a stand against all forms of drug ad- vertising on the grounds that it has a "significant effect on the attitudes of children" and makes drug taking appear glamorous.
