R. Myers school here. Electors as such failed in numbers to exceed the several trustees and members of staff, total attendance being just over 20 persons. Questioned as to the necessity of destroying the old brick building known as Central School to make way for a new structure, the trustees referred to a report from the Chief Building Inspector for the Department that the school was unsuitable for further use though appearing structurally sound. The transportation question drew the reply that a recent study into the economics of the system made by Medicine Hat's transporattion supervisor would now be examined in detail, and implemented in areas where costs could be reduced.

The hospital directors noted that the 1969 millrate of 8.0 mills had been reduced to 5.5 mills in 1970. However, in view of the Department of Health's statement that there will be no increase in provincial money available to the hospital in 1971 over 1970, the board is faced with an assessment of just under 10 mills this year if the hospital is to operate without deficit.

Contraceptives information for students CRANBROOK (Special) -East Kootenay Medical Society has launched a hot potato in its six school districts in proposing to the various boards contraceptive information be made available to girl pupils. Society president Dr. L. M. Hengel, in his letter to the boards, said the society resolution was to make the public aware of the need of pregnancy prevention as alternative to unwanted pregnancy. He termed such a measure was preventive medicine comparable to other preventive hygiene instruction. The letter contained that the proposal followed a practical look at today's sexual trends without moralizing, but also looked at the medically distasteful position' in which the profession is placed under "abortion on demand," which is "a task far beyond us." Cranbrook school board startled reaction was to refer the proposal to its district superintendent of schools, P. B. Pullinger who has undertaken to discuss it with the society at its March meeting, but thought acceptance unlikely. He said he considered the girl's mother a more appropriate judge of need for such instruction and selection of the stage at which it might appropriately be given to her daughter. STOCKMAN PREGNANCY TESTING A.l. TRAINING SCHOOL FORT MACLEOD, AlBERTA 4 Days Tues., Wed., Thurs. and Fri., March 30, 31 and April 1 and 2 CONTACT PRAIRIE BREEDERS RR8 CALGARY, ALBERTA OR PHONE 253-3808 The exact and filial millrate cannot be established until the contributing municipalities advise their equalized assessments to the board, and until the Minister of Health puts his stamp of approval on the hospital's requirements. Con tributing municipalities are the Taber Municipal District, the Towns of Taber and Vauxhall, and the Village of Grassy Lake. Board chairman Thomas H. Addy told the board that a protest to the Minister regarding the small amount of equipment grants available, had brought no favorable results, and that the equipment grant would remain at $6,930 annually. This, the board felt, is insufficient to maintain the standard of equipment required by the hospital. In view of the position in which the hospital board finds itself with pressures to reduce costs from the provincial government and pressures from professional staff and patients for more services, the board signified its intention to attempt a definition of standards of patient care as they are to be applied to Taber General. All interested bodies are to be requested to give their views on the proposed standards for board information and possible guidance. The local auditors Colleaux and Mills were reappointed to the position of hospital auditors for 1971, and their report for the past year was reviewed and accepted. The directors heard a delegation from the professional staff regarding proposed changes in staffing patterns in the children's ward. After the delegation's representations were stated and discussed, the board ordered that full registered nurse coverage on a 24-hour basis should be continued for this ward. A leave of absence policy established by the board provides for a compulsory six months leave in cases of pregnancy. Finally, a previous motion to prepare a brief for submission to the new Health Commission was reviewed, and the executive was authorized to submit the board-amended brief to th* Commission, re full health services. Mr. Gogo explained the three-pronged program which the cancer society offers: research, education and patient services. Dr. M. J. Hodgson and Miss McLean conducted a question and answer period for the 60 people present. This year's canvass will again be sponsored by Alexandra Rebekah lodge, with Mrs. Mae Robinson as campaign chairman. It will be a week-long blitz, starting the first part of April.
