"It's important to act now wilh the medical profession not against them." Doctors also are taxpayers who want health costs held down, he said, and since the government isn't going to make an investigation, the medical jrofession should take the initia- ive. The Alberta Medical Associa- jon has said physicians' earn- ings reported by Ihe commis- sion are misleading and give an "inaccurate picture." Association President D r. C. J, Varvis of Edmonton has said many physicians' expenses can vary from 40 to 80 per cent oi gross income. "Most doctors are in a higli- income bracket, so after deduct- ing their operating expenses and paying their income tax, their take-home pay in many oases is not much more than that of many other professionals and tradesmen who have com- parable hours of he says. An Edmonlon pathologist, Dr. Sam Hanson, revealed that he received more than ?1 million in payments from UK commission last year. However, Ire explained that he pays eight doctors and other siaff, and equipment costs and other expenses from that amount. He has the largest pathology practice in Alberta, carried on tlirough a network of 19 laboratories which serve clin- ics and 37 hospitals in Edmon- ton and northern Alberta.

Medical care costs rose S3 per cent in 19YI, he said in an interview, because doctors saw more patients. ore people with problems which could be classified as mental are visiting doctors when they could be going to a clergyman or a friend, said Dr. Oshire.

Sask. company eyes Alberta SASKATOON (CP) Clem Roles, president of Smith-Roles Ltd., said here he will move to Alberta to avoid Saskatch- ewan's proposed estate tax and will make a decision soon on whether fo take his farm-- equipment business with him. Mr. Roles said his company, which employs about 70 per- sons, would be put out of busi- ness if something happened to him and the estate tax was ap- plied to liis assets. The federal government re- cently withdrew from the estate tax field and a number of prov- inces intend to pick up the slack. The former Liberal govern- ment had a policy whereby il rebated the province's 75 per cent share of estate taxes to beneficiaries. Mr- Roles said he will make the decision shortly on whether to relocate his business in Cal- gary or Edmonton. Govt. looks to domestic money market EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government expects tb do a substantial portion of its 1972- 73 borrowing 75 to 90 per cent on the domestic market, Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely said here. The budget brought down last Friday night provides for bor- rowing of million but Mr. Miniely said in the legislature the "amount borrowed may be a fair amount less than indi- cated in (he budget." He told Gordon Taylor Drumheller) during the ques- tion period that an analysis ol the bond market indicates Al- berta should be able to do its borrowing at an interest rate ol IVt to eight per cent.
