(CP) Canada ranks 23rd among 25 well-developed countries in terms of citizen health care, a Queen's University economics profesor told a public hearing MI the medical profession Wednesday. Dr. R. D. Fraser said the re- sults were from a recent study conducted and indicated something is and has been very much amiss" in Canadian health care during the post-war period. Kingston is the first of nine cities to be host to hearings sponsored by the Ontario Medi- cal Association (DMA) and con- ducted by Elward PicerMng, director of the OMA study group which organized them. Dr. Fraser said in a brief that United Nations statistics show Canada ranked 14th among developed nations in in- fant mortality with a rate of 18.8 deaths par live births. He said Canada's poor health rating is a result of the quality of health care, doctor shortage and inefficiently-organized doc- tors' practices. AGE A FACTOR Dr. Fraser said a 1963 study showed general practitioners in Ontario scored an average of 57 per cent in interviewing and ob- servation procedures. He said scores declined with increasing age of the doctors. "This performance clearly justifies an immediate study of the need for a new set of proce- dures for the licensing and certi- fication of physicians after they have been practising 10 said Dr. Fraser. Dr. Fraser was among 13 persons who presented briefs and 60 who attended the day- long bearing. He said the shortage of do- ctors in Ontario is shown by the difficulty of newly-arrived fam- ilies in finding a physician in Kingston which has one doctor per 296 persons, the highet ra- tio in the province. Dr. Fraser said Canada ranks 16th among 25 well-developed countries in its doctor-popula- 1cm ratio and called for a sixth medical school in Ontario to in- crease the number of gradu- ating doctors. DUE TO SHORTAGE Doctors' incomes, which in- creased 122 per cent between 1860 and 1070, are a result of he shortage of doctors, Dr. Traser said. He was critical of physicians' reluctance to encourage train- ng and use of paramedical per- sonnel such as midwives, public nealth nurses and physicians' aassistants. OSING In loving memory of a dear wile and mother, Ida, who passed awi-y November 2, 1971. There is someone who misses you sadly In the house where you used to be. Someone who tried hard to save you But God willed it not to be. In tears we watched you suffer, And slowly fade away. God alone knows how much we miss you As we 'vatch the old house day. remembered by her husband Oscar, daughter Vivian and son-in-law Ken. 1240 Alberta man named head of committee EDMONTON (CP) L. C.

Guy retains Sask. seat in recount PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. (CP) Liberal Allan Guy re- tained his seat in the Sas- katchewan legislature following judicial recount of ballots Wednesday. The ballots were cast Sept. 27 in a byelection in the northern riding of Athabasca. The by- election was ordered after the Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench ruled the results of the June, 1971, provincial general election in the riding were in- valid because 25 voters were in- eligible. Wednesday's recount gave Mr. Guy votes, unchanged from the September vote, and Robert Dalby of tbe New Democratic Party three less. The Liberals now have 15 seats in the 60-seat legislature, while the NDP has 45. Mr. Guy held three cabinet posts in the Liberal government defeated by the NDP in 1971. He had been declared tbe win- ner of that election with a 10- vote margin.

French ruling pending FREDERICTON (CP) The appeals division of the New Brunswick Supreme Court is expected to make a decision within the next few weeks on the use of French in the courts of the province. The appeals division heard opposing arguments here Wednesday on Uie con- stitutional legality of the fed- eral and provincial official lan- guages acts which would allow French-language trials in the province once the relevant sec- tions of the New Brunswick act are proclaimed. The question was referred to the appeals division after Mayor Leonard C. Jones of Moncton objected earlier this year to a request for a French- language trial made by the lawyer for Rheal DrisdeUe, 20, a university student charged with loitering on the mayor's property at night. The main arguments during the one-day hearing centred on the interpretation of section 133 of the British North America Act, which provides that Eng- lish and French are both ac- ceptable as the language of fed- eral and Quebec courts. J. T. Thorson, a retired presi- dent of the Exchequer Court of Canada, who appealed on be- half of Mayor Jones, said the BNA Act expressly limited the use of French to courts in those two fields, but Gordon Gregory, deputy justice minister of New Brunswick, contended the act was pimply a minimum guaran- tee which should be expanded. NOTES AMENDMENT Mr. Thorson argued that an amendment to the BNA Act passed by Parliament in 1949 at the request of the SL Laurent government forbade Ottawa from amending the constitution as it applied to the use of Eng- lish and French. Ho said Ottawa was intruding on provincial responsibilities by extending the use of French in courts.
