Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, March 30, 1973 Check-up costs a 4tax burden' By JIM GRANT Hcrnld Staff Writer The high cost of the annual medical check-up is creating an economic burden on the tax dollar says the director of the Southern Alberta Regional Hospitals Laboratory. Dr. Ray Bainborough said Thursday that he couldn't imagine any nation "being able to bear" the astronomical tax bill the annual check-up philosophy is creating. Under the Alberta Government medicare plan all medical check-ups are covered with the exception of third-party requests. Any requests for medical check-ups by employers, insurance companies and the like are" classified as third-party. "Each one of us have chemical peculiarities in our bodies that could lead someone to believe it is a symptom of a particular disease," said Dr. Bainborough. "It is very costly to try and detect what the symptoms indicated." He was concerned that the compulsion by medical people to tell everyone what their problems are saddles patients with unnecessary stress. "I don't want to know that I may get a particular disease in the future," he said. Complex medical screening tests can now indicate the possibility of a person getting certain diseases in the future. Dr. Bainborough said, "The finding of disease early is only important in some fields where early diagnosis can often cure." There is enough mental tension on people today without adding the burden of knowing he may be the victim of a disease in the future, he stressed. West African art collection at university A collection of West African art will be on display at the University of Lethbridge art gallery, April 4 through April 11. Under the coordination of U of L political science Prof. Brian Winchester, the display will consist of metal and wood sculptures, as well as textile hangings. The items are on loan from Lethbridge residents who have worked or studied in Africa. The display will be open to the public, free of charge, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 weekdays, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. QUALITY DENTURE . CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechank Capitol Furniture Bldg. mm PHONE 328.7684 Bajj He said people are becoming overly concerned about having a symptom of a particular sickness because of magazine articles and television programs on diseases. Preventive medical education is also important. For example, cancer could be reduced considerably if everyone stopped smoking. Also, the elimination of fatty foods from the diet would reduce cardiac arrest. "I wonder if we shouldn't make it impossible for kids to get hooked on things like cigarettes," he suggested. Dr. Bainsborough said a time will come when annual medical check-ups will be financially feasible because "the cost per service is gradually dropping." Until then, he said people should pay for medical checkups. Employment tips stressed at seminar Appearance, personality, and salemanship are the keys to getting a job. At the Lethbridge Community College workshop entitled How To Get A Job, Dale Heyland, member of LCC's continuing education department, Thursday spoke on the importance of making a good impression on potential employers. Gary Doyle, from Canada Manpower, spoke on the availability of jobs, stressing that people should be specific in their choice of work when coming to the centre. The industry's point of view on employer expectations was done by Jerry Hopman of the City of Lethbridge. Two LCC students, Neil Proctor and Rob Gregg presented a survey on student expectations in employment. They stressed the importance of knowing the job specifications, security of the job, and possibilities of advancement. A discussion on the preparation of an application was led by Bill Gillln, member of LCC's liberal education department. Rob Jaycock, on the business education staff at LCC, spoke on the dynamics of the interview. The workshop was well received by the college students and may become an annual event. LCC counsellor and coordinator of the project, Bill Johnson, said the college has.been thinking about arranging a workshop of this type for almost two years and was finally spurred on by faculty members.

By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer Unless North American society can be redirected, we are about to descend to a new sort of barbarism, the program director of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews said Thursday. Citing the increase in the number of violent crimes committed in large America cities, Frazer Earle outlined the three manifestations of this new barbarism:  Depersonalization - where people are pigeon - holed, not according to their personalities, but by their position in the so- ciety, or within an institution. In a hospital, he said, people are referred to by their medical problem, not by their name, "the 'gall stone' in room 304."  Dehumanization-in large, assembly - line industry, "there is a real revolution taking place" because people don't Heel that they are contributing as human beings. There is no opportunity for creativity, or personal satisfaction.  Brutah'zation of minds - the constant barrage of violence through the media has he'ped create a situation where people can walk by a mugging and not get involved. Mr. Earle said that while his Junior achievers to sell products Products manufactured by Junior Achievement companies in Lethbridge went on sale today and Saturday in booths at Centre Village Mall. The two days marks the final trade fair of the season for local achievers. After the fair, Junior Achievement companies will liquidate and close shop in preparation for the Futures Unlimited banquet May 2. A feature of the banquet will be presentation of awards to companies and achievers for outstanding work during the 1972-73 season.

Television and movies are obsessed with violence, he said, and accompanying this violence, both on the screen, and in the real world, there is an increasing degree of permissiveness. Young people today are in revolt, Mr. Earle said. In revolt against old standards and attitudes, against the system. These developments make the role of the police more difficult, he said, noting that in many police forces, an officer spends less than 20 per cent of his time doing the job he was trained for, and hired to do. He is either doing paperwork, or social work, and there are other agencies which can take this load from the policeman leaving him to the job he is trained to do - apprehending criminals and enforcing the law. He suggested that because the police are caught in a situation of social breakdown, a dialogue between the police and the community is necessary. This, Mr. Earle contended, would allow people to find out what a policeman's role is. Sergeant seeks impaired drivers Enforcement cuts accidents Two local men to view Holland speedskating ovals Dean Cooper, chairman of the 1975 Canada Winter Games, and Bob Bartlett, community services director, leave Sunday for a tour of Holland's speed skating ovals. The two will spend about a week in Holland, the leader in development of artificial speed-skating ovals with some 17 400-metre ovals. Lethbridge will build Canada's first 400-metre track of international standards for the 1975 Canada Winter Games beside the Sportsplex. Along with the architects for the Sportsplex, Mr. Bartlett and Mr. Cooper will look at construction requirements for the oval, spectator accommodation, and services, public address systems, scoring and score announcement systems, athletes' accommodation, ice Summer bus hours begin The city transit system summer schedule goes into effect Monday, and will continue until Nov. 5. The last evening buses on the five routes will leave downtown as follows: Route 1 - 9:20 p.m., Route 2 - 9:30 p.m., Route 3 - 9 p.m., Route 4 - 9:30 p.m., Route 5 ,- 9:30 p.m. markings, mechanical services for the judges and the like. Canadian Pacific Airlines is footing the air fare. Strict enforcement and more policemen assigned to traffic detail would help cut down on tha number of accidents, and number of drinking drivers on the road, the trafhc inspector for the Lethbridge Police Force said Thursday. There are three traffic cars on patrol at all times in the city, and nine of the 56 men in the force are assigned to traffic detail, Insp West said. The Northwest Institute of Traffic Enforcement recommends that one-fifth of the total police manpower should be traffic patrolmen. Insp. West said the force has a traffic sergeant out every night specifically looking for impaired drivers or drivers nearing impairment. Impaired drivers are probably involved in 85 per cent of all major hit and run accidents. And, where liquor is involved in an accident, it will probably Bylaw offenders watched by police coulee patrol With the return of warm weather, Lethbridge residents are again looking to the coulees and river valley as recreational space. But enjoyment could be cut short if two activities currently getting the attention of the city police are not stopped. Under the parks bylaw, it is illegal to operate motorized vehicles, of any sort, in the coulees, yet city police report that many residents are driving cars, motorcycles, dune buggies, and other motorized vehicles in prohibited areas. Insp. Bill West, of the Lethbridge police, said that aside from the danger, the main problem with this practice is that grass is torn up, causing soil erosion. The other problem is that many young people are discharging fire-Earns in the parkland areas on the outskirts oi the city, yet within the city limits. Insp. West said that every year, at least one person is injured by a stray bullet. "Even one injury is too many, and some day, someone is going to get kilted." He warned that city police would be laying charges against violators of either bylaw, and that extra patrols have been assigned to the coulee areas to catch offenders. be more serious. Insp. West said. The traffic sergeant assigned to watch for imparled drivers concentrates his attention on liquor outlets, and other places where drinking drivers are usually found, he said. If a drinking driver is found, the police officer has three options - he can lay a charge of impaired driving; driving with a blood-alcohol oaitent In excess cf .08; or can suspend the driver's licence for 24 hours. The attorney-general's department runs a driving course for those convicted of impaired, or .03 charges, but Insp,. West said that it's too early for the force to draw their own conclusions as to the effectiveness of the program. "But when you pick up a man who is coming to the course on a second impaired charge, you wonder how much good it's doing," he said.
