Mayor Brown of Medicine Hat over the phone today explained the difficulties in that district. The city is well organized. There are six physicians in the town and two are down. There is a territory of about 125 miles north and south that the four physicians cannot posslhly cover satlstac-torlly ,and attend to the city, 'fliere are strbnfe calls tor aid. "ij^ey. n'eed a physician badly to send southerly'Into the whole district, but none Is avan-able here. Appeals come for medical men from Delburne, Sawridge, Shan-dro, Vermilion, where physicians ara down, Ve'rgrovlUe, Hardlsty and many other points. In Klllam and Provost physicians are reported under the weather. Organlnation-L�duc and district perhaps shows the best organization in the northern part ot the province. The three physicians there, with help-ei^s/sent in, and the local people have thoroughly organized the town, establishing a central office in the town, divided the territory, rdughly running out for a radius of twenty miles from the town at least far enongh to meet belf-way medical aid from other points. Committees have been thoroughly organized and instructed, /it is the duty of one Intelligent farmer or other person with an auto to cover one district and report every house In that district to the central office, In Ledue every morning. Probably lie has fifty families he must reach! by phone or auto, Hte may find thirty all right, ten others more or less slightly affected but not .^erloue, gtill another ten that need assistance. His report goes In by auto or phone and the doctors In makitig their rouad.9 simply visit these teii serious case:, thus the time of the doctor is greatly economized. He wastes no time whatever. In this way the very best results are being obtained ftom the medical services. Similarly with the nursing aid, every point in the province should be orgaiiked along some such similar plan, so that nb family. If pcasible, wilt be missed in the daily report. Orders and regulations-The police in the northern portion of the province are beginning to enforce the regulations, and several' convictions IiaVe been made in the Stony Plain district.
