Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THt inHBRIDGE HERALD May 10, 1972 Cily ombudsman plan rcjec-Icil CALGARY Alderman Adrian Berry's motion to es- tablish a civic ombudsman was easily (Wealed by the legisla- tion Aid. Berry, the only support- er, said it met a "wall of re- jection." lie said citizen complaints about administrative injasticc were frequently loo inolved for the aldermen to answer effec- tively and suggested an om- budsman on a similar basis to the provincial ombudsman. Cliicf commissioner 0 e o f Hamilton said it would create a nightmare. "There are adequate chan- nels fur aggrieved citizens In voice their complaint." Publicity pays NEW YORK (AP) Nina Van Pallandl. tho Danish singer who testified in the Clifford Irv- ing-Howard Hushes affair, has been signed to co-star in a film with Elliott Gould, it was an- nounced Monday. Miss Van Pal- landl will play in The Long Goodbye, a United Artists movie to be filmed in Los Ange- les starting in June.

Canada consults crystal balls for China's air talks answers OTTAWA (CP) Canadian authorities consulting their crystal balls are finding few- clear answers about Chinese in- lent ion.1) in coming air talks be- iHfcn Hie I wo countries. About the only firm fact Is that China wants to talk. Pre- mier Chou En-lai told Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pcpin last July that Cliina would welcome You can take a WHITE HORSE anywhere Distilled, Blended and Bottled in Scotland by While Horse Distillers Ltd., Scotland an air route between the two countries. Disrui-sirm.s between Chinese and Canadian officials begin in Peking Monday. Canadian negotiators "w ere able lo conclude recent discus- sions with Italy r e I a i i v c 1 y quickly as they were aware of what that country was likely to demand. But discussions w i t h the Chinese are likely to go at least a full two rounds and possibly more. "It is quite uncertain becausp wo are dealing with a group of people we can't second PHONE THE CANADA MANPOWER CENTRE FOR STUDENTS For the exlrci jummer help you need lo reploce em- ployees on vocation far odd jobi around your home hundreds of denti now available for work Just call. 328-8164 said one government source, the Chinese, we don't know." In talks wiih other cnnnlries, the Chinese have insisted that centres in Japan and the U.S. possessions in the Pacific can- not lie used as intermediate stopping points on the way to Chin.i. Thcre is also the question of the status of Taiwan and Hong Kong. China regards these areas as Chinese territory. COULD LOWER YALUK If Ciiina insists, Canada might not be permitted to pick up pas- sengers in cither Taiwan or Hong Kong to bo carried to China. This -would reduce the economic value of the route to Canadian airlines. Canada must know what it will be allowed lo do politically before it can argue economic and transportation issues with the Cliinese. If Canada is allowed lo use Japan as an intermediate point on the way lo China, CP Air could extend its service to Tokyo to include Peking. But, if Canada is unable to find an intermediate point that is acceptable to China, Cana- dian airlines would be faced with the risky business of flying direct lo Cliina from Western Canada, Aircraft would fight prevail- ing westerly winds which would reduce air speed and Increase (light times. There is, of course, no guar antoo lhat CP Ail- will get the roule il an agreement with China is reached. CP Air would appear to be Ihe most likely choice bc-causc it op- erates in Asia under the govern- ment's international air policy announced in 1905. But Air Canada could be awarded tho route as an exten- sion of ils Moscow service. Cliina could oppose this as the Soviet airline Aeroflot already flies from Moscow to Peking. There is a possibility, loo, that the government may decide lo allow Air Canada to operate lo points in the Pacific and Asia. This would require a change In the government air policy. Tliis may lie undertaken as a resull of the air talks with Italy and China and planned discus- sions with Germany, France and the Netherlands.

Government rules hinder hospitals OSHAWA, Ont. (CP) Gov. ernment moves towards admin- istrative control o! hospitals threaten the effectiveness of in- dividual hospital board, the president of In Canadian Hospi- al Association said Tuesday. William Holland, who also Is administrator of Oshawa Gen- eral Hospital, tnade the com- ment in a statement marking tho observance of Canada Hos- pital Day this Friday. No one denies government control through purse ,ie said. "Nevertheless, govern- ment moves to thrust adminis- trative rules upon hospitals hreaten the effectiveness of local hospitals boards which represent vital grassroots in- volvement." Mr. Holland said that almost hospitals will observe Can-1 ada Hospital Day. It Is held to coincide with the !52nd anniver- sary of the birth of Florence fViplilingalc, lierninc of (Ire Cri- mean War whose ideas on hy- giene and sanitation shattered accepted coucepls of hospital standards of Iht time. Preventive medical programs through out-patient partments and wilh the co-oper- ation of community health agen- cies "are an important key lo solving the cost-price squeeza faced by today's hospitals trying to handle growing de- said Mr. Holland. "From the hospital's position, it's more efficient, and economi- cal to participate In community preventive medical programs than to utilize costly in-patient facilities treating patients with ailmenls which might have been avoided." advocate' plan suggested OTTAWA (CF) A new type of volunteer, a "citizen advocate" mentally im- paired or handicapped per- sons, has been suggested by Dr. Wolf Wollensbergcr, visit- ing scholar at the National In- stitute on Mental Retardation at York University, Toronto. In a recent issue of Can- ada's Mental Health, a health department publication, Dr. WoUensberger described citi- zen advocacy, begun in some North American centres in I960. Tt now will be tried by the Canadian Association (or the Mentally Retarded In a pilot project in Kingston. "A citizen advocate Is a competent citizen volunteer who, with the support of an independent back-up system, represents, as if they were his own, the interests of another person who is in some way impaired or he said. Depending on the needs of Ihf? impaired pcrsnn. advo- cacy roles can be formal or informal and cillier short or long-term, even Formal roles ivould include adoptive parenthood, guard- ianship or property caretaker, he said. Informal roles in- clude friendship and guid- ance Both could emphasize the personal relationship and an ex-change of affection anel con- cern, although there is a place for "instrumental which would concern only the solution of some practical problem. MANY WAYS TO 11K1.P "Perhaps (lie most. pcrlf'' type of advocacy occurs when a citizen chooses lo rear as his rind perhaps adopt, a handicapped nnd neglected he said, adding lhat there also are oilier roles that arc less demanding and much needed. "Among those arc the prov- ision of transportation, coun- sel or oilier services for the handicapped child of a family who love and accept him but lack Ihc means lo solve the problems. An advocate can make certain Mini, flic child gels (he education and training which the community ban a responsibility to pro- vide." Advocates can sponsor Insti- tutionalized children without families lo care for thorn, vis- iting, giving gifts, lokiug tlicin on trips or entertaining them at home, Dr. WoUensberger said. Handicapped adults alto can be helped in these ways. Agencies are limited In providing these kinds of serv- ices because of impersonality, rigidity, lack of continuity in relations with clients and by conflicts of interests between the agency and the profes- sional workers, he said. TIAS NO LOYALTY "In contrast to professionals working as employees of agencies, the volunteer is free ct loyalties to any profession or agency. Ho is a volun- teer to a specific person, not to an agency." Even if the volunteer should occasionally become irration- ally concerned on behalf of his dependent, "it is still bet- ter to have such irrational in- volvement on of the voiceless than to have none at all." he said. "Afler all, parenthood Is frequently irrational its iTpresenfalion of child inter- ests, bnl accept this as being culturally normative." None nf the ideas relating In the citizen advocate are new or unique, but have been pro- posed by groups such as Big Brothers, he said. However, the idea of an independently- financed, unified system to handle all the aspects of advo- cacy is new and unique. Dr. Wolfensberger said that advocacy "may well become a major helping form, paralleling the more tradl- ne.pnry pprvice stnic- Stamp designs honor Indians OTTAWA fCPl Two mnlli- cnlor postage si amp designs will he released (his summer to begin a scries on Can.irllan Indi- ans.
