Steve Chabay Sr. was the lone occupant of a car which collided Sunday with another vehicle, driven by Ronald Dueck, 18, also of the Brox- burn. district, just east Lethbridge. The accident occurred at a district intersection, three miles north of Highway 3 at Broxburn. Mr. Dueck is in satisfactory condition today in St. Michael's General Hos- pital. Police say an inquest will be held. A Canadian Press survey from 6 p.m. Friday to mid- night Sunday showed two drownings and four traffic deaths in Alberta, two traffic deaths in Manitoba, and one traffic f atality and two deaths by poisoning in Sas- katchewan. A 29-year-old Calgary man Imer Sulejmani. drowned while fishing on Chestermere Lake, 15 miles east of Cal- gary. Police say his rubber dinghy collapsed when a joint gave out.

Blumell, princi- pal of Raymond High School is chairman of the 1073 sum- mer games in the town. The project members are working closely with him. Mr. Blumell said that the town's effort for the Games was "co-operation on a scale not usually attempted.'' Money for the OFY proj- ect materials comes from the combined budgets of the town and provincial department of youth and recreation. A sum of and has been set aside for building supplies and equipment. OFY pays to the project and most of this goes to 28 summer salaries. A Local Initiatives Project program is already in Ray- mond on a town cleanup pro- ject. All 28 students are new to the OFY scheme. Ruth Ann Smith, a 20-year-old univer- sity student with the project said that the students were pleased with their job. FORT VERMILLION, Alta. (CP) A hospital adminis- trator was described Satur- day by native people, a local doctor and his own director of nursing as rude. The ad- ministrator denied allegations that he assaulted two native women and a 13-year-old white boy. The administrator, Ephrem Carrier, who took over at St. Theresa Hospital in 1970, was testifying at a public inquiry. He admitted that when he took over, he knew he would have to "step on some toes" to get the job done. He said his attitude might be construed by some persons as offensive or rude. How- ever, he said he had never been guilty of racial discrim- ination. "I have more tolerance for others than I have for my- the 44-year-old admin- istrator said. On another occasion, how- ever, he stated: "If some prodding is re- quired, yes, I'll do Mr. Carrier, a former naval petty officer, told the inquiry into the administra- tion of the hospital that alle- gations saying he assaulted two native women and a 15- j ear-old boy are not true. None of the testimony about the three allegations was cor- raborated by anyone other than the complainants. None BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave. S.

Alberta leanin towards Lalonde health cost plan RED DEER (CP) Al- berta is "leaning towards" acceptance of the Lalonde formula of financing health costs, but acceptance may be conditional, Premier Peter Lougheed said Sunday. The federal formula, which would substitute a lump-sum grant to the provinces for the current 50-50 cost-sharing for medical care and hospitaliza- tion, would allow the province flexibility to tailor its spend- ing to meet its own health pri- orities, Mr. Lougheed said. However, the premier im- plied the conditional approval could depend whether the long-term transfer of funds from Ottawa to the provinces GEORGE ND ROD SAY We are prepared to fill prescription written by Dermatologists, dentists, eye-ear- nose or throat, Endodontics, facial plastic tur- gery, internal medicine Obstetric and cology, Optnalmolgy, Orthodontics, Orthopedic, Pediatrics, Periodontlc or general practice medi- cal men.

Initially the federal propos- al, advocated last week by Health Minister Marc La- londe, would turn more dol- lars although not a signii- cant amount here over to the province than past shared-cost schemes. How- ever, it also transfers the risk for the programs over to the province. Mr. Lougheed, who just re- turned from last week's flrst- ministers conference in Ot- tawa and embarks on a two- day cabinet outing in Central Alberta today, also made these poinls Sunday about the conference: It should have been open to the public, a view he has maintained since he attended the first one. A closed meet- ing made it difficult for the news media to assess what has taken place. Alberta would welcome a federal-provincial conference solely on energy, and hoped energy matters would be high on the agenda of the next conference. It would "clearly not be in the best interests of Alber- tans'' to have wage-price con- trols. There was significant progress on new porposals that would increase family allowance cheques and vir- tually no agreement on a pro- posal to replace the existing federal sharing of costs for post-secondary education. of them said they had ever complaned to police. Charged with having order- ed destroyed an old statue of Christ that had been neglect- ed on hospital grounds, he said this decision was made not by himself, but by the local parish priest. "Father Plouffe told me to destroy it and dispose of he said, adding that he had originally approached the prist about relocating the statue, which was in a state of some disrepair. Jack Newman, chairman of the local hospital board, told the inquiry Sunday Mr. Car- rier was ordered fired earlier this spring by Premier Peter Lougheed. The order was changed after objections from hospital board members. He said the reasons for the order involved the "general unrest in the area.'' ap- parently caused by the ad- ministrator's dealings with native people of the region. The board refused the order and threatened to re- sign en masse if forced to fire Mr. Carrier without fur- ther investigation, Mr. New- man said. The testimony of about 40 witnesses, most of them na- tive people from the region, 500 miles northwest of Ed- monton, indicated that the crux of the controversy was Carrier's attitudes. Mr. Carrier said that al- though some native people might have found his atti- tudes generally offsenisve or rude "great care has been taken, in my opinion, to make sure there is nothing I can do about the complants." Weekend rains aided dry- land and irrigation farmers throughout southwestern Al- berta but the majority of the drough stricken areas in southeastern parts of 1he province continued to suffer. While Pincher Creek was getting .67 on an inch and Lethbridge .35 of an inch of precipitation, residents of Banff and Canmore were shovelling 12.9 inches of snow, which combined with more than two inches of rain, amounted to more than 3 inches of precipitation. Medicine Hat area farmers, who were facing poor mois- ture conditions, got a brief respite with .13 of an inch of rain on the weekend. F. A. Rick Ross, manager of the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District, said this morning that the good rain- fall west of Lethbridge will assist the district. The area between the dis- trict's source of water just west of Fort Macleod and Keho Lake, the only reservoir in the system, received ade- quate amounts of precipita- tion. Mr. Ross said this will al- low the reservoir to be kept full, a factor which will make or break the ability of the dis- trict to fully service all farm- ers. "If we can keep the lake full until the end of June, we should be ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz BIdg. 222 5th St. S.
