Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, May 30, 1973 Workers, peasants, All intellectuals in China By CARL MOLLINS S HIH CHIA CHUANG, China tCP) The Inter- national Peace Hospital rims a fine herd of cattle and its staff and patients produced kilos of vegetables last year. Doctors dig in the fields and peasants work as part-time doctors. A regular army unit is cuiiuing a civilian apartment in this city about 200 miles southwest of Peking, while a phalanx of primary-school children march by like little soldiers. Students break away to work in mines and miners take time out to attend uni- versity. Factories grow wheat or rice in the forecourt and farmers run glass factories on the back forty. It is all very confusing to a visiting Westerner, this re- fusal of the Chinese to organ- ize society into clear-cut com- partments and social strata. At the Peace Hospital and elsewhere, a group of visiting Canadian doctors would be told that the staff consisted of such and such number of workers. The confusion set in with the questioning for de- tails. How would that total break down into doctors, nurses, or- derlies and others? The hosts would try hard to oblige, but is a girl herbalist a nurse, or neither? And what about the textile factory worker who performs three days a week as a radiologist, not only taking X-rays but diagnosing9 In medicine, the blurring of the professional hierarchy is understandable against the background of a desperate shortage of health care. When the Communists took over in 1949, they were faced by the problem of a disease- plagued populace with a ratio of perhaps one Western-style doctor for every people. Canada's ratio is one doctor for 650 people. What could make more sense than to enlist traditional herbalists, acupuncturists and barefoot peasant doctors with a few months' training in a combined preventive and curative campaign? STATURE DEMANDED You don't achieve that by setting up a medical hier- archy in which traditionalists or barefoot doctors get a low social rating, remarked a Ca- nadian doctor. In China, everyone is said to fit into just three general work- ers, peasants or soldiers. Even the long-standing Com- munist classification of the well-educated as intellectuals has been officially blurred since the 1966-69 cultural rev- olution against special privi- lege. "There are three types of explains a Chi- nese primary school intellectuals, middle school intellectuals and uni- versity intellectuals." Since all Chinese have at least primary-school educa- tion, everybody thus is an in- tellectual. SHOPPER STOPPERS NOW ON Blow the whistle on a riot of rip-roaring bargains from an inventory of millions of dollars! Culture centre short of film By DONAT VALOIS PARIS (CP) The Canadian cultural centre in Pans is fac- ing a shortage of documentaries and short films featuring Can- ada and its peap'e. In 1972, the centre, along with its counterparts at the consu- lates in Bordeaux and Mar- seille, granted requests to borrow films. These films, most of them made by the National Film Board, were loaned to associa- tions, cultural centres, film clubs and teachers and seen by more than 3.23 million people. However, if Canadian film makers continue to ignore docu- mentaries and short features, pouring all their energies into full-length films, th s loan serv- ice might bs in ssrious trouble. Examination of the film cata- logue entitled Canada and Cana- dians shows that 400 films are available to the French public but only 75 of them have been made in the last five years. No films are listed for 1972. "The other 325 filmTdate back as far as 1940 although most were made between 1950 and W64. It is unfortunate that in the sectors which have evolved the most rapidly in Canada the shortage of documentaries is most acute. For example, under the head- ing of communications, there is only one recent film dating from 1971. It is called Chut and shows the origin, function and potential of the Quebec Nn- tional Library. Sociology, psychology, educa- tion and sports offer only one recent film each, all made in 1971. Of the 75 geography films ailable. Agriculture-Canada, made in 1971, is the most recent production listed. History's most recent offering is a film of General de Gaulle's 1967 visit to Quebec. with some piace to 90.

(Photos by Rich Grosko) WHY SHOULD WOMEN GET STUCK WITH THE CLUMSIEST CARS? It's true you need space for the kids and the dogs and the groceries. But that doesn't mean you have to lug a giant station wagon around. With the rear seat down, the Volvo wagon has space in back for 6 7 cubic feet of kids, dogs and groceries. Or a 6-foot sofa. And space in front for a husband. But outside, the Volvo wagon is exactly the same size as the Volvo sedan. (That's about 3 feet less to park than the giants. And three feet less to dent.) Roo! McV optional. A sense of proportion is one of many sensible things about Volvo. Others include 4-wheel disc brakes. A rear-window wiper, wasner and defroster. And rear doors with extra locks the kids can't open from inside, so "f you can keep your mind on the road instead of the back seat. If all wagons were designed as sensibly as a Volvo, maybe 'women drivers would have a better name. SHORT STOP AUTO LTD. 538 6th STREET SOUTH, LETHBRIDGE VOLVO 328-6586 Neat Knits!
