The final day of the ASTA annual convention here Wed- nesday saw two resolutions overwhelmingly passed re- questing the provincial govern- ment to set up special proced- ures to scrutinize professional and other occupational groups. One resolution called for measures to ensure that the public is getting its money's worth. The second called for govern- ment measures which will al- low members of the general public to have some say in set- ting the society." prices "imposed on Although teachers were not singled out in eiti.dr resolution, several delegates felt the reso- lutions were purposely unsoeci- fic to disguise an effort to come down harder on the teach- ing profession. "We are using a shotgun ap- proach to get at a particular charged a Medicine Hat delegate. "I don't see the relevance of this group involving itself with professional groups in this way any more than we should be taking a stand on the price of meat at Safeway." Scott Saville, a Calgary law- yer who is a member of that city's public school board, coun- tered that it is about time peo- ple did get Involved in these areas. "It's about time we opened our stuffy, professional offices and let people he said. Supporters of the resolution to keep a check on professional competence argued that it is a misconception that only mem- bers of a certain profession are capable of judging whether a member of the same profes- sion is competent. If the quality of service of- fered is judged only by the profession itself, the quality can be gradually diluted without community said the resolution. The fact that the provincial government already has a com- mittee looking into the matter indicates that "this seems to be happening in at least some pro- fessions." The resolution calling for public participation in setting ree structures argued that, at present, the client is forced to accept a fee which has been set by members of a profes- sional group. Al Mont, Lethbridge public school trustee, told the dele- gates they should seriously con- iider the intent of the associa- tion's executive in looking into matters beyond the scope of education. While agreeing that there should be public participation n these areas, Mr. Mont said 'it is a dangerous precedence for the association to ask the government to establish this procedure." Scott Saville eirgued that many professions are related to education in some way. He noted that school building pro- jects in Calgary were severely affected when architects "ar- bitrarily raised their fees." Alberta trustees speak for teacher evaluation Alberta trustees have spoken out against what has been termer "life-long security" for teachers. Delegates to the Alberta School Trustees Association 66th annual convention here voted in favor of a proposal that permanent certification for teachers be abolished and that ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5lh St. S.

Sue Wearmouth, Calgary sep- arate school trustee, said the resolution is aimed at encour- aging teachers to keep them- selves up to date and "to keep incompetent teachers from a life-time of exposure to learn- ers." Carl Johnson, Lethbridge public school trustee, also spoke out in favor of the resolution staling that members of other professions, such as doctors and lawyers, have to take re- fresher courses to keep pace with new developments in their fields. Art Bunney, County of Flag- staff delegate, argued that such a move could keep people from mterlng the teaching profes- sion. This will scare some peo- ple from becoming teachers. I think this Is discriminatory." REUNION CONTRIBUTION The L.C.I. Reunion of the 30's succeeded in collecting for Ihe schools' band, uniform fund. Above, former principal D.S.A.

Preseiiis "THE DAY YOU BUY A DIAMOND" You may wonder what makes these stones so precious. Here are some factors you might remem- ber: The diamond's hard- ness. The diamond is the hardest natural substance known to man. It is 85 times harder than corun- dum (of which rubies and sapphires are formed) the next hardest substance we know. Because they are so hard, diamonds never wear out. Diamonds worn by generations of women are just as beautiful today as they wore the day ihoy were worn for the first time. Once tha mark of power H is now the mark of fashion. Above all, the diamond is the recognized symbol of the pledge of love.

COLLEGE MAIL Commission member claims Too many beds, doctors By JOE MA Herald Staff Writer Alberta has too many hospi- tal beds, and the surplus is one reason the province has too many doctors, says a member ol the Alberta Hospital Ser- vices Commission. Charles Virtue in an inter view said Tuesday that the commission is considering al ternate methods of health care to costly hospital beds. Emphasizing he was giving his personal views, the Leth bridge lawyer, a former pres ident of the Alberta Hospita Association and chairman o the Lethbridge Municipal Hos- pital board of trustees, saic some hospitals in the province should not have been built in the first place. "It has been established that the yearly cost." of operating a hospital amount to 50 per cen1 of the costs of building tha' Virtue said "There is no way to slow down the acceleration of costs if sur- plus hospitals continue to be built in Alberta." The recommended ratio of hospital beds per popula- lation is 4.5 in Canada, com pared with 3.5 beds in the Uni- ted Stales and three beds in Britain. "In Alberta, we have over seven beds per popu. he said. The alternate methods the commission is considering in- clude: Hospital-based home care extension programs, in lieu of demand for more hospital beds. Hostel beds in lieu of de- mand fo- in-patient beds. Mr. Virtue said people who don't leed intensive care should not given intensive care. Satellite health resource stations. Instead of building small hospitals in small com- munities, substations of large lospitals in nearby communi- ties should be built. Geriatric day care centres 'or old people. Instead of miri- ng nursing homes, older peo- ple can live at home while spending the day at the geriat- ric centres. Reorganization of the am- ralance services to enable peo- ile in small communities which Jo not have hospitals to be ;ransported to existing facili- ties. Community health centres 0 provide comprehensive health services. Mr. Virtue said since Alberta las surplus beds, the introduc- tion of these alternate methods will be gradual. He said hospital trustees and administrators should think along the line of regional rath- er than institutional interests, 'he proposed regional laundry or southern Alberta, which will ave laundry costs for all par- icipating hospitals, is a move 1 the right direction, he said. It is politically difficult to close down existing hospitals, even though their occupancy rates are as low as 50 per cent. But Mr. Virtue said conversion of existing facilities into other uses, such as from a hospital to a nursing home, or a nursing home to a rehabilitation work- shop, should be considered. "The public's demand for ac- tive hospital beds can never be satisfied, but active hospital beds are more he said. "I think we should go slow, and when the demand arises, consider alternate methods of health care." Alberta has a surplus of phys- icians and one of the reasons for that is the surplus of hos- pital beds, he said. The doctor who delegates tasks to others loses income. The system encourages him to provide many services which could be provided by other, less highly skilled health workers. "The surplus beds situation is attractive to he said. "I am not criticizing the doctors, just the system." Mr. Virtue said he is not find- ing fault with hospital trustees and administrators, "who are operating the hospitals very ef- ficiently." The problem, he said, is that Alberta built itself into a surplus situation with generous revenues from oil, and now has to find a way out. "Nobody says we can reduce the health care he said. "All we can do is to slow down the rate of acceleration to a bearible level." Agent says employers choosing non-union men While local contractors claim to encounter difficulty recruit- ing sufficient workers, the local carpenters union with a mem- bership of 250 has a 30 per cent unemployment rate. Sharon Norton, business agent for the Construction and General Worker Union, No. nil, says the difference is in pay rates. Union workers get per hour while non-union contrac- tors pay unorganized laborers somewhere between and union rates. She said most local contrac- tors pay the lower rates. The union doesn't blacklist its workers who take lower paving jobs if the union can't find work for them, she added. "Although it is within our right." In addition to the higher hourly rate, union workers also receive numerous health and welfare benefits from union contractors. She said these amount to about 10 cents per hour per worker from the con- tractor. Other related construction in- dustry unions say the job scene is "fair" now but will darken quickly. There are no large construc- tion projects planned in south- ern Alberta tills winter, they say. The laborers' business agent said the job picture for her members is "worse than It has ever been before -A this t'me of year."

He did not reply, when Mr. Sorenson asked if the govern- ment has given any considera- tion to prohibit the sale of furs taken by means of the leg- hold trap. Outside the House, Mr. Sor- enson said there are more hu- mane, quick-kill traps available to replace the leg trap which he said causes animals a slow, painful death. Many animals escape the leg trap, he said, and later die of gangrene poinsoning. "Leg-hold traps may be purchased by anyone. Children set them and usually neglect them after- wards, catching everything from gophers to household pets." HOOVER MODEL 4521 SPRAY The Week!
