Dr. McPhail said, all provinces will have adopted the '-defined concept of licensing doctors either in a specialty or in general prac- tice. This would replace the present system of licensing doctors in all fields of medicine at the same time. Alberta would bs in trouble The eggs were seized because they had not been purchased through the egg board. They were marketing selling at lower prices than B.C. eggs. F and W wholesale spokes- roan Esther Wood says her company will continue to im- port the lower-priced Manitoba eggs. Effective Monday, the price of B.C. eggs to producers in- creased an additional two cents a dozen, to 59 cents for Grade A la'rge. B.C. egg producers said the increase was necessary be- cause of the high cost of chick- en feed which they have to im- port from the prairies. Dionne quints mark birthday MONTREAL (CP) The three surviving Dionne Quin- tuplets marked their 39th birth- day Monday with their families in suburban St. Bruno. Germain Allard, husband of Annette and a spokesman for the three women, said the day- was "an ordinary workday" with "nothing special" planned. The sisters and their families might go out for dinner later in the week. Annette, Cecile and Yvonne, born in Callander, Ont, in 1934, all live in St. Bruno, 15 miles south of Montreal. Annette has three children: Cecile, who is separated, has four, and Yvonne is single. Emilie died of suffocation during an epileptic fit in 1954 and Marie died of a blood clot in 1970. Mr. Allard said the three women, who visit each other and go out together often, "are perfectly happy" after an ab- normal childhood in which they were the centre of attraction. They have not seen their par- ents since Marie's funeral in 1970 and Mr. Allard said the relationship is "fairly cool." and flax, and 46 per cent of taa rapeseed was also sown. Although Southwestern Al- berta received beneficial rain- fall during the weekend, about two-thirds of southeastern Al- berta was seriously in need of added moisture, the Pool said. In central and northern re- gions, soil moisture conditions were good to excellent, al- though the provincial soil mois- ture index had dropped slightly from a week ago. Seeding intentions of Alberta farmers had changed only mar- ginally. At this point, wheat acreage was expected to be up 15 per cent from last year, bar- ley up seven per cant, oats down one per cent, flax down three per cent and rapeseed down seven per cent. Farm costs on upswing OTTAWA (CP) The cost of operating a farm jumped 6.1 per cent in the first three months of this year, Statistics Canada reports. By comparison, food prices rose 3.5 per cent in the same period, from the end of Decem- ber to the end of March. But the March increase in food prices was 2.6 per cent. Statistics Canada reported that the 6.1-per-cent increase largely was due to price in- creases of 18 per cent for live- stock feed. 15.3 per cent for fee- ders cattle and 31.1 per cent for seed. Costs for western farmers went up 4.4 per cent while those for eastern farmers rose 7.6 per cent. The increase for the year end- ing March 31 was 10.2 per cent nationally, 12.4 per cent in the east and 7.7 per cent in West. the Weather and road report Appeal made for 'Pass area blood donors BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) j An urgent appeal to blood donors is being expressed by Mayor John Holyk of Coleman j Mayor Ernie Fantin of Blair- i more, Mayor Jim Fisher of Bel- j levue and Mayor Tony Patera of Frank.
