Schmidt accuses Tories EDMONTON (CP) Werner Schmidt, Alberta Social Credit leader, has ac- cused the provincial govern- ment of abusing its power by ignoring the legislature. "The decisions made by cabinet when they amend, change the intent of, or overide laws present a danger of immediate urgen- Mr. Schmidt said in a prepared release Friday. The people of Alberta were totally ignored on the regula- tion used in the purchase of Pacific Western Airlines, he said, noting that regulations should never have power greater than existing laws passed by the legislature.

Defeats only temporary Douglas tells NDPers REGINA (CP) Former Saskatchewan premier T. C. Douglas held more than 500 New Democrats rapt Friday night as he discussed the past and future of democratic socialism. Speaking at a banquet following the first day of the Saskatchewan party's annual meeting, the Baptist minister quoted St. Paul, Albert Eins- tein and philosopher George Santayana as he consoled NDP members about their THOMAS FOR THE LOWEST FARES POSSIBLE SEE THE PEOPLE WITH THE MOST EXPERIENCE Right Now You Can Fly Lethbridge to Vancouver heavy losses in the last federal election. "Defeats are only tem- porary setbacks to people who have their eyes fixed on a goal." Mr. Douglas said. He recalled the days when Saskatchewan was almost bankrupt and teachers had been unpaid for months, but the CCF forerunner of the managed to initiate social advances un- paralleled in North America.

In a digression, he warned party members not to forget that "the old Liberal gang" was. in his view, the steadfast enemy of democratic socialism. "In all the struggle to im- prove the lot of the people of this province, our every step was contested and obstructed by the old line parties, par- ticularly the Liberal party in this province and in Ottawa." Turning to the future, Mr. Douglas said today's youth face famine, pollution, the power of multinational' cor- are far more complex than the problems of the Depression. over it all like the sword of Damocles is the nuclear bomb." He said the solution is "a new attitude to willingness to help each other as tlie Communist Chinese have demonstrated The immediate task, however, for democratic socialist Saskatchewan was to "re-elect the NDP govern- ment in Saskatchewan because that government is holding the bastion of progress in this country." The enthusiastic and par- tisan crowd gave Mr. Douglas a standing ovation and rose again moments later for a spontaneous chorus of For lie's A Jollv Good Fellow Inquiry told doctor interfered STONY PLAIN (CP) A government inquiry was told Friday that Dr. Viljoen Kritzinger, former medical chief of staff at the hospital in this town west of Edmonton, interfered with a new doctor's surgical application. Minutes read at the inquiry into operations at the 30-bed Stony Plain Municipal Hospital revealed the hospital medical staff felt Dr. Kritzinger had mis- represented the opinion of both the hospital board and the medical staff in meetings of the two boards. The minutes said in part: "It was felt by the staff that Dr. Kritzinger had mis- represented the medical staff opinion to the board and vice versa. "It was also felt Dr. Kritzinger had taken it upon himself to decide when and what surgery Dr. (T. C.) Ho could perform, when in fact it had been decided by the medical staff as a whole that it be recognized the board give Dr. Ho all the privileges re- quired. "It was the opinion of the staff that Dr. Ho had been un- justly treated and had not been given the privilege to perform the surgery for which he was qualified." Dr. Ho testified that he applied for surgical and ad- mitting privileges at the hospital when he moved to the town in September, 1973. He was only per.-nitted ad- mitting privileges initially, although he was later per- mitted to do minor surgery. Dr. Ho said it was not until April, 1974, that he was per- mitted to carry out major sur- gery, which he said he believ- ed as an "unusually" long period of time to wait for that permission. Hospital board minutes of Oct. 10, 1973, entered into the record as evidence showed Dr. Kritzinger had reported on Dr. Ho's request and he recommended the board grant temporary privileges to the new doctor, with Dr. 'Kritzinger to assist Dr. Ho, in order to evaluate his perfor- mance. The recommendation was approved. On Oct. 15, medical staff minutes indicated a hospital doctor recommended all necessary privileges be granted to Dr. Ho, and that motion was carried un- animously. Dr. Kritzinger returned to the hospital board Nov. 14 and reported on the medical staff meeting The minutes sai< that Dr. Kri tzinge recommended temporar. medical and surgica privileges be given Dr Ho. HL referred to a "precautionary letter" from the College o Physicians and Surgeon: about gall bladder operations Dr. Kntzmger's recommen- dation on privileges was approved although it was stipulated Dr Ho could not perform gal. bladder removal operations under normal circumstances. SCHWARTZ AGENCIES (1972) LTD. Quick-change artist too slick for tellers CALGARY (CP) Police are looking for a quick-change artist who stole in cash from under the noses of three bank tellers Wednesday. In all three cases, police said Friday, the con man's modus operand! was the same, and none of the three tellers realized they had been had until later in the day. Similar descriptions of the man's appearance and details of the thefts, as well as the fact that all three incidents occurred within two hours, suggested that they were pull- ed by the same man, police said. In all cases, the man approached a teller with some U.S. money, placed it on the counter and asked that the money be changed. The teller would obtain the equivalent in Canadian bills but then the man said he didn't want Canadian money but large denomination U.S. bills. The tellers told him they did not have the large- denomination U.S. bills he 84 OIL SPILLS The United States Coast Guard has reported a total of gallons in 84 oil spills in the Upper Hudson River and tributaries from Ossington to Westport. during the first half of 1974. wanted, and he took his money back and left. It was only after he left that the tellers found that he had walked off with not only his money, but some of theirs as well. Police said the Royal Trust Co., Toronto Dominion Bank and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce reported thefts of and respec- tively. 1613-17th Ave. South "OPEN HOUSE" SUN DAY, NOV. 10th from p.m. till 4 p.m. 5 bedrooms, formal dining room, TV and rumpus room, air conditioned throughout, interior complete- ly redecorated.
