Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE lEFHBRIDGE HERALD March 1971 Maurice Western Byebye Bar bra Put away your butterfly nets tlie Monarch has been caught Pierre Trudeaus marriage is a fact and all hopeful maidens from 15 to 50 must accept it with good grace and reject the temptation to march on Ottawa in Trudeaus attempt to keep his private life just

territories gained in the Six Day War of 19B7 means surrendering real So effec tive has been Israels defence from the positions that it seems very likely the only reason the Arabs now want peace is that they have dis covered they cannot dislodge the Is raelis in any other It would not make sense if Israel willingly threw away the Demanding defensible borders needs to be seen in the light of the history of the President and King Hussein may sincerely want peace it is widely believed that they It is their successors who cause worry Earlier agreements reached with King Abdullah of Jor dan and King Farouk of Egypt were not honored by their Un trustworthy men might follow Sadat and A suspicion that the Arabs must see an advantage real or merely psychological to impress the rest of the world is difficult for the Is raelis to To have retreated so far from Nassers boasts about de stroying Israel does not seem like a position designed to win favor from the people who not so long ago were aflame with the idea of a holy The Israelis can be excused for be ing The likelihood that Is rael will accept the bid for peace It may be that another exten sion of the ceasefire will be agreed upon before that acceptance Israel may yet gain tlie concession that prior agreement to withdraw from occupied territory not be a pre condition of the peace A com promise on the territory issue seems almost a necessity for a peace agree Despite the intransigence shown on the territory the possibility of peace still seems real and is not fad ing even as the current ceasefire ex Give the green light

Wafflers and their allies of the Quebec Stephen the Ontario has put the issue in clear terms in a speech at Attacking the princi ple of selfdetermination for he repudiated any proposition for al liance or veiled support with those who seek the dismember ment of our He added We have nothing to gain save our permanent and welldeserved On the same weekend the Quebec group endorsed selfde termination and decided not to participate in provincial elec tions thus leaving a clear field for the Parti Quebecois in urban ridings where the NDP had some the struggle concerns fundament It is not unlike the deux nationes conflict which wracked the Conservative convention of but is less clouded by goes much deeper on the one is plainly a political response to the up surge of a separated party in What is at as Lewis frankly is the future of the NDP as a force in federal This is not soley because Rene Levesque is unpopular in English Canada or because the actions of the Quebec wing will be and interpreted in all parts of the country as veiled supert for the separatist The difficulty is that a party committed to self determina as demanded by the Que bec cannot be a feder alist This is perhaps clearer from the language ap proved by the weekend con vention in Montreal than from that of the Wafflcrs As reported by C a n a d i a n the resolution reads Quebec has an absolute right to

Patient prompts some leply from a member of the profession Newspaper headlines to the effect that doctors earn are indeed Such payments were made to an ex tremely small mainly pathologists in private prac an analysis will show that although such pay ment is to one physician this covers services employing sev eral trained chemists and tech nicians and does not represent a single persons Fur it takes no account of considerable expenditures in volved in modern The increasing expenses in olved in modern medical prac tice apply in varying degree to all branches of tlie profession and a much clearer reflection of doctors incomes would be seen in net income following expenditures for fa cilities and ancillary following such expenditures a hard working doctor is rela tively well but is his

a quite new The assertion is that Quebec has an absolute right to de cide on the degree of sovereign ty which suits its needs But such needs are interpreted dif ferently from time to Premier Bourassa

increasing introduction of tech nology into This has nothing to do with physicians incomes which represent a small portion of the total cost of medical services and is quite irrespective of the
