Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, November 6, LETHBRIDGE HERALD Unnecessary operations for "sterilization of the young' Food meet delegates not stinting stomachs By LOUISE COOK ROME (AP) World Food Conference delegates trying to find a way to avert mass starvation in developing countries aren't stinting on their own stomachs while in Rome. Even before the UN-sponsored conference officially open- ed on Tuesday, delegates and observers from the more than 100 countries represented could be spotted in posh Rome restaurants, debating advance reports in between bites of dishes like Scotch smoked salmon, fettucine with truffles and steak in wine sauce. Three American businessmen in Rome for the conference argued heatedly Monday night over a preconference state- ment by French agricultural expert Rene Dumont that "the rich whites are practically indirect cannibals." Their discus- sion occurred over a dinner of prosciutto with melon and Chateaubriand at a table in George's, a restaurant across the street from the hotel where most of the American represen- tatives are staying. There were other signs that the phrase "world food crisis" hasn't really hit home. of the first questions at a briefing for journalists covering the conference was: "Where do we The questioner was referred to a press kit that explained there was a restaurant and snack bar in the Palazzo dei Congress! where the conference is being held. busiest spot in the hour before the opening session on Tuesday was the bar, where harried waiters dispensed 15- cents-a-cup coffee to delegates who wanted to know why there wasn't any milk or Danish pastry. (The supplies hadn't arrived.) African delegates complained bitterly when they were served only half a cup of coffee. In Italy, most res- taurants fill the cup of espresso only half full, leaving it up to the customer to add sugar or milk or simply settle for only a few sips. Many foreigners, apparently unaware of the custom, are upset by the scanty ration. fixed menu posted at the conference centre for the first day's lunch offered a sumptuous list of 000 lire or about EDMONTON (CP) Less than one third of 60 hysterec- tomy operations at Stony Plain Municipal Hospital should have been performed, a medical inquiry into the hospital's practices was told Tuesday. A surgical audit, carried out by the College of Physicians and Surgeons, found there was justification for carrying out 19 of 60 hysterectomies uterus removals and said the operation "appeared to be for sterilization of younger people." The inquiry resumed Mon- day following numerous com- plaints during the last year about personnel at the hospital, 20 miles west of Ed- monton. Complaints about the hospital became public after a coroner's inquest in April call- ed for an investigation by the College of Physicians and Surgeons into the death of a Spruce Grove man who died following a gall bladder opera- tion there. A medical college investiga- tion into the practices of the two doctors involved in the operation Dr. Viljean Kritzinger and Dr. S. G. Taletz resulted in a "reprimand" being issued by the college. RECORDS SKIMPY The inquiry was told the sur- gical audit, which dealt with a sampling of operations from late 1972 until early 1973, found that 23 per cent of the anesthetic records dealing with major surgery were not properly completed, and that medical and surgical dis- charge records were "skim- py." Technical records of sur- gery were near perfect, the audit found. Richard Popp, acting hospital administrator, said the hospital lost its accredita- tion in 1972 because of concern over the level of patient care, as well as the general at- mosphere within the hospital. Mr. Popp, an Alberta Hospital Services Commission standards officer, said the commission did not consider closing down the Stony Plain Hospital in 1972 because "it was not that serious." However, he said the loss was and that accreditation from the Cana- dian Council on Hospital Accreditation reflects the quality of patient care. The hospital administrator said the hospital has been told it can reapply for accredita- tion after the current situation problems are resolved. The inquiry, before Ed- monton lawyer John Hill, is scheduled to hear testimony from about 100 witnesses dur- ing the next three weeks. OBJECTOR JAILED BOSTON (AP) Carry Musi, 26, of Boston was sentenced Friday to 60 days in jail for not completing six of his 24 months of civilian work as a conscientious objector. A jury found Musi guilty of leav- ing a hospital job without per- mission in 1971. 7 4., WALLPAPER PRE-PASTEO VINYL COATED SCRUBBABLE WALLCOVERINGS BY WALDEC In stock now! Sold in double rolls only.
