Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Revolution helped Cuban farm boy By BUU JOHGENSEN SANTA CLARA, Cuba (CP) Ui'aJdo Lazo says he is con- vinced he would never be where he now is if il weren't for the revolution Lnzo, 40, is doing a job he enjoys and the job is one that carries considerable prestige in Cuba. He is director of an artificial insemination station in (his provincial capital in the interior of Cuba. His father was a campesino, a poor farmer, who managed to save enough to send Lazo to veterinary school. But after Lazo graduated he could not find steady work. Before Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, Lazo said, vet- erinarians depended on politi- cal influence to get jobs and most of the hiring was done by large landowners. Lazo, a six-footer with a ruddy tan from years of work- ing outdoors, said he managed to support himself by doing small jobs for family farms. The privately owned estates have been replaced by state- owned farms since 1959. Lazo said there are still family farms and they can get veteri- nary assistance from state clinics. CASTRO AN EXPERT Development of a cattle herd in Cuba is one of Cas- tro's pet projects. Lazo said Castro has become an expert in Cuban prime minister obtained a law degree in reg- ularly visits farm installations such as the artificial insemi- nation station. "He asks a thousand ques- tions and he always remem- bers." Canadian farms are major sources ot breeding stock for the Cuban cattle program. In 1967, the Cuban government paid for a grand champion Hoslein bull, Inter- national B act Velvet from the R. J. Stewart farm at Bol- lon, Ont. Foreign observers of Cuban trade say the Castro govern- ment now is more economy conscious and trade figures support this view. During and 1971, Cuba bought about 11.500 head of cattle in Canada for about S3.G million or about a head. They are crossing the Hol- slcins with the Indian Zebus in Canada as the Brahman. Lazo said the cross combines the high mik-pro- ducing capacity of the IIol- sleln and the ability of the Zebu to survive in a hot, humid climate. The cross produces a bit less than half the amount ot milk given by a Holsfein. Latest available figures on Ihe Cuban cattle herd give its size as 7.1 million in I960 and the Cuban report said this to'.al is up from about five million in 1958 "with an ex- traordinary increase in qual- ity, thanks to artificial insemi- nation." QUALITY IMPROVES Projects in which Caslro has taken a personal interest usually have t o p -q u a 1 i t y equipment and Lazo's labora- tory is no exception. The equipment includes capsules of liquid nitrogen to freeze semen for storage and trans- port it to small farms in re- mote areas. But the cattle program has a shortage of veterinarians, Lazo said. Many professionals left Cuba alter Castro look- over and the Cuban education system now is graduating a high proportion of agriculture specialists. Lazo said his station oper- ates an on-the-job training program lor laboratory tech- nicians in conjunction with the university at Santa Clara, one of three in Cuba. Lazo said ability and not po- litical influence now is the way to promotion in Cuba. He ssid he was not a mem- ber of the Cuban Communist party and he was asked if sci- entific technicians were vn- polilical and not interested in party membership. "Oh no, that is my aspira- tion."

Medic til experts are divided dbout the wisdom of the trend: towards reduced de-lection pro- i grams in Canada, Dr. L. Jciines, medical director of Hie Canadian Tuber- culosis and UcspinUovy Disease Association, says thai Quebec, j Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia have reduced pro- grams, with mobile x-ray trailer units now concentrating on' high rihk groups or certain j areas of Ihc province.

Dr. Jcanes was commenting in an interview about compan-, ion articles in (he association's. i quarterly IJuIIoliu, in which two medical experts look opposing views on the need for mass screening programs. "The articles represented the present pictures in two prov- lie said. "One believes there still is merit in carrying on Ihc program there. The other now finds the costs of finding such a few new cases too costly.11 LTJIOmS {'HECKS Dr. D. Harriett, director of medical services for (lie Sustal- c h e w a n Anti-Tuberculosis LCUIRUC, said In his article that rmtss survey programs in his province still "are a valuable tool." "Unfortunately, many people evaluate surveys according to the cost of identifying one ac- live case of tuberculosis, but this is the wrong approach. II would be more appropriate, if it were possible, to relate part of the cost to the number of cases which were prevented, but this is an unknown quantity.7' The Saskatchewan program combines x-ray and tuberculin testing as case-finding methods, a registry of cases and contacts, education programs for urban and rural areas [he last five test to detect j diabetes as well. Dr. Owen Clarke, medical director of the Sir Adam Beck chest disease unit in London, Out., said in his article that case finding through mass sur- veys "i" no longer economic." Use of mobile frailer x-ray. units is "ineffective and with only per cent of new casc5 found this way in Ontario during 1970 He recommended instead that doctors, and clinics do chest x-rays and check them lor Tti as part of a complete routine chest exami- nation.
