In a "Dear Doctor" letter to all Canadian physicians, the two national medical associ- ations and the health depart- ment note it is absolutely necessary that a major effort by the medical profession be mounted if the rising tide of veneral disease syphillis and gonorrhea is to be brought under control. The two-page letter, accom- panied by a VD treatment guide prepared by the CMA, calls on doctors to review their current participation and performance "as a physician in the control of venereal disease." "If your personal reas- sessment leaves any doubt about your knowledge of per- formance, please consult your peers in this area of the letter suggests. The letter also warns that if a doctor uses VD treatments other than that recommended in the accompanying guide ap- proved by provincial epidemiologists and directors of veneral disease programs, then the doctor has a professional and a "moral responsibility to ensure that it is as effecive, or an im- provement on, that recom- mended by your peers." Experts all agree, the letter states, "that effective veneral disease control demands effective case reporting and contact tracing, adequate follow-up and good clinical management of known and suspected cases." The letter concludes. "The effective control of venereal disease requires your positive co- operation is not enough."

It will be held in the big lecture theatre in the physical education fine arts building on campus. the European Common Market from the United States. For at least two weeks Secretary of State Kissinger and his aides, including specialists on France, have been studying the options open to them in dealing with France both directly and in her capacity as an influential member of the market. Kissinger is described 'by the officials as wishing to avoid a confrontation that would inevitably compel France's West European partners to choose between Paris and Washington. But he is apparently contemplating future developments or circumstances that might compel the United States to make its position known in a stiff speech, or a diplomatic note, or even in some action detrimental to French interests perhaps in the area of defense policy. In the long run, the officials said, the continuation of the present trend in French policy as being pursued by President Pompidou and Foreign Minister Michel Jobert would make "Atlantic co-operation" between the United States and Western Europe virtually impossible. Kissinger is understood to have been resentful of what he regards as efforts since last July to obstruct and delay a reaffirmation of trans- Atlantic ties in a joint declaration between tne and the nine Common Market countries. More recently he was reportedly annoyed by what he felt were French attempts to wreck the conference of major oil-consumer countries in Washington last month first by promoting oil deals with the Arab oil-producing nations and then by trying to pressure the other west Europeans to reject the Kissinger proposal for a joint approach by the consumer countries to the Arab producers. Kissinger's pique was reportedly sharpened by what he determined was a French inspired offer of long-term economic and technical co- operation by the Common Market countries. But he was said to have begun his review of policy toward France regretfully. "This one aide said, "has done more toward rapproachement with France than any other since the war. Nixon really turned handsprings to try to restore amity with France." As recently as last November, Kissinger was praising France's "constructive role" in shaping a new declaration of purpose for the 15-nation North Atlantic Treaty Organization NDP convention in Edmonton Friday EDMONTON (CP) Alberta New Democrats will be looking for the magic formula to give the West its fourth NDP provincial government this weekend during the party's annual convention in Edmonton. While Ed Schreyer, Allan Blakeney and Dave Barrett have led the NDP to victory in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia respectively, Alberta leader Grant Notley has been able only to win one seat for the party in the 75-seat Alberta Legislature. Mr. Notley will speak to the convention Friday night. National leader David Lewis will address the banquet and dance Saturday night.
