Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 Socred Attitude Outlined On Mental Health Report EDMONTON (CP) Alter-1 ta's Social Credit government will remain in power a long time- because it has the forti- tude to pay experts to criticize its programs and operations, Health Minister James Hender- son toW legislature Thurs- day. "The government has ssked for these reports to lielp the people of Alberta knowing full well that when the report is made some people will start throwing rocks." Mr. Henderson made the comments after outlining the government's attitude on the Blair Report on mental health, JACKIE AND ARi AT FAREWEIL FOR SHRIVER IN PARIS Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and her husband, Greek shipping magnale Arisloile Onassis arrive Thursday at residence of U.S. Ambassador to France Sargent Sliriver.

The figure includes a wide va- riety of Russian military per- sonnel, ranging from flyers to engineers, Irorn rocket to radar experts. The flyers are instructors, training Egyptian pilots but also flying reconnaissance missions over the Mediterranean in Rus- sian-made pianos with Egyptian markings. The engineers are working on the instalment of SAM-3 anti- aircraft missiles reported lo have arrived in Egypt recently. Egypt already had 300 SAM-2 surface-to-air missiles deployed. The SAM-2 is an extremely effective weapon against high- flying airplanes but provides no protection against low-flying aircraft. The SAM-3, on the other hand, Is known lo be effective against planes attack- ing in low altitudes. Informants would not say how many of the SAM-3 missiles are city of Alexandria, the main base of Soviet warships in the eastern Mediterranean, and around the military airport west of Cairo.

The government radio also announced declaration of a 'state of danger" and suspen- sion of all constitutional rights [or six months, but Phnom Penh remained quiet. Radio Phnom ?ei.h carried reports from half dozen provinces saying the overthrow of Sihanouk had won the support of students, other youths, local officials, the clergy aid the population in general. Two possible courses of action were foreseen for Sihanouk, now in Peking: can accede, gracefully and return to France with hi. wife, Princess Monique. can return to Cambodia and try to rally support for his cause. Sihanouk, after holding ur.dis putcd sway for more than 2 years, still has a strong follow ing among Cambodia's people.

Ten per cent of the fund will be reserved fo- thc lure crops. The act will extend protec- tion to birds of prey and exotic species such as those four.d in zoos and game farms. Dr. Ross said the legislation removes the minister's author- ity to restore a hunter's licence after it has been revoked by a magistrate. Another section says that all wildlife belongs to the crown. Previously it belonged to its ratural habitat. By THE CANADtAN PRESS Police and firemen will have to negotiate without a strike op- tion under a new law proposed in Ihe Alberta legislature. A similar ban on strikes, by grain handlers, was discussed Thursday in the Saskatchewan house. Labor Minisler Ray Heierson introduced legislation at Ed- Air Patrols Will Check Highways monton that wiU impose com- pulsory arbitration as a final stage rather than strikes by po- lice and firemen in contract dis- putes. The legislation was introduced after consultation with munici- palities and representatives of the employee associations. "Under the act then- differ- ences must be settled by final and binding arbitration involv- ing a five-man Mr. Rcierson said. "With the agree- ment of both parties, however, the dispute can be referred to a public emergency tribunal which will be established under lions. "There is also an absence of commitment to expenditure be- cause the mental health ap- propriation represents a 12- per-cent increase over 70 less than the over-all budget Mr. Loughccd said. Financial incentives musl be given to hospitals to initiate mental tealih services and the public will accept substantial commitment of provincial funds to the programs, he said. The Conservalive leader agreed that more community involvement is the "right way to go about" improving mental health services hut there does not appear to be much provin- cial support for such involve- ment. Hugh Horner (PC Lac Ste. Anne) said Mr. Henderson was using community involvement "as a crutch." There always has been con- siderable community involve- ment in mental health services particularly from doctors, the clergy and social service per- sonnel.

Although the parly lost jround to the Conservalives, the voting ehitt was not as great at bad been feared. James Sillers retained House of Commons seat by a margin of votes over his Conservative and Scottish Na- tionalist opponents. Tory candidate Christopher Grave polled votes and Nationalist Sam Purdue votes. Sillers' folal vole of was below the Labor majority in the 1966 general election, and it represented a swing of 2.9 per cent to the Conservatives. This was far below the aver- age 12-per-cent shift to the To- ries in byelcclions last year.
