CALGARY (CP) The gar- bage-fed bears in Banff Na- tional Park will probably go hungry this .summer with all but one of the park's garbage fLmps being closed. New Toyota headquarters VANCOUVER CCP) Cana- dian Motor Industries, which distributes Toyota vehicles in Canada, announced plans hero to build a new Pacific head- quarters in Richmond munici- pality on the southern outskirts of Vancouver. Company president Yano told a meeting of dealers that the Richmond centre will cost an estimated million- It is scheduled for completion this fall. The company also is building a S3 million facility in Rich- mond let serve as a reception, preparation, storage and distri- bution centre to process Toyota vehicles. Steve Kun, park superinten- dent, says a study by the Ca- nadian Wildlife Service shows 28 grizzly bears have frequent- ed a dump for Ihe last two years near Lake Louise. The dump will not open this summer and garbage will be taken to a fenced sanitary land- fill east of Danff townsitc. Re- fuse is currently hauled lo a site in Yoho National Park. Mr. Kun said Ihe ultimate solution for garbage disposal may involve hauling refuse out of the park lo he dumped in fill sites such as strip mining pits. High temperature incinera- tion was examined but is not being considered hecause of air pollution problems. The problems of bear attacks on humans results largely from the bears' association of people with garbage he said. Those animals which return lo Lake Louise area this sum- mer searching for food will bfl tranquil! zed and flown (o re- mote areas of the park by heli- copter.

Hospitals affiliated with men1 cal schools generally rale hetti in studies of quality of medic, care. Physicians in these insl tutions, with their responsihill for training new doctors, mu keep abreast of the latest deve opments in medicine. TOO MUCH SURGERY Dr. John H. Knowles, former j general director of Massachu- setts General Hospital, recently wrote: "There are incredible) amounts of unnecessary surgery going on, and that can't be j orated." Dr. Knowles, president-desig- nate of the Rockefeller Founda- tion, asked: "How come you have II times as many uteri and tonsils taken out in one part of the country as Assessing a doctor's work In hospitals is comparatively easy j because all procedures and pre- j scriptiom are recorded should be. Determining the quality of a i doctor's practice in his office is a different matter. The solo practitioners usually do not come under scrutiny unless they violate the law. Ant] the law, in many stales, is not very restrictive against doctors unless they become in- volved in criminal activities not related to their medical prac- tices. Nothing tinder the law stops doctors from practising outside their areas of competency, Dr, Gerbcr points out. STATISTICS SPOTTY N'o national statistical compi- lations of state disciplinary ac- tions against doctors ore made regularly. Stale, in o d i c a I boards, fo which doctors ore appointed, arc the arm of the state in pol- icing the quality of medicine. Medical societies sometimes receive complaints from the public. But these are voluntary organizations with little legal power. Such societies, to which many physicians belong, are in many stales more strict in policing the quality of medical practice than llic state boards. But a physician can be expelled from a medical society and still prac- tise. Because there are no federal standards for licensing new doc- tors, standards appear to vary widely from lo slate.
