Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Richardson denies soldier morale low OTTAWA (CP) Defence Minister James Richardson rejected claims Wednesday that armed forces morale is low because of spending restraints. He told reporters that such talk is self-defeating. He had found no evidence of low mo- rale in his talks with forces' members His comments weix made after being peppered in the Commons with opposition MPs' questions dealing with everything from defence facilities in Winnipeg to the future jobs of the forces He described as completely inaccurate a newspaper report that the government plans to spend million to million on defence facilities in his hometown of Winnipeg. He told Opposition Leader Robert Stanfiejd that the government is considering what changes are necessary now because of inflation caused budgetary restraints. A statement on the future forces tasks would be made, but probably not in time for next week's budget debate- Later, Mr Richardson said in an interview that the cabinet must decide how much money it can spend on the forces and what jobs it wants them to do. He has said there will be more money for defence next year, but he has given no in- dication how much. The size of the forces will be allowed to drop below author- ized levels to make more money available for equipment. Meanwhile, forces activities are being restrained, a situa- tion that caused Michael Forrestall Halifax East) to say in the Commons that the armed forces are getting "damn sick." He said they have some real problems. Mr. Stanfield said there are allegations that the forces are not even meeting their first priority of protecting Cana- dian independence and sovereignty. Mr Richardson said he be- lieves sincerely that the job is being done. George Hees (PC-Prince Edward-Hastings) said the government is dosing a Boe- ing 707 maintenance facility in Trenton, Ont., so the work can be done in Winnipeg. Mr Richardson said that having the force's five 707s overhauled in Winnipeg is fulfilling a commitment of some years standing Mr Richardson, who repre- sents Winnipeg South, told Dan McKenzie nipeg South Centre) that a viable 707 overhaul base will be built under the manage- ment of CAK Industries Ltd He said there are no firm commitments that airlines will send their jets to the facilities But a number had shown interest 'Playing lip service' BANFF (CP) An en- vironmental researcher says the Alberta government is "merely paying lip service" to environmental problems. Dr. Cy Hampson. a Univer- sity of Alberta biology educa- tion professor, told a con- ference on secondary educa- tion here the province spends large sums on environmental education "yet continues to endorse resource develop- ment projects before en- vironmental impact studies are completed." 10-Inch Color Portable at Van's TV Sales Service THE IDEAL CHRISTMAS GIFT Tempo C24 301 1 Solid State clussis 'een Prt.

Graham Clarkson said Wednesday In a speech delivered to the annual convention of the Alberta Hospital Association, he said the public often forgets that many of the ailments can be cured Most conditions are not lethal, but if left untreated, will result in total or near- total dependency, which usually leads to in- stitutionalization. often for many years." The elderly and their relatives often fail to report illness, blaming it on old age. until it is too late. CITES EXAMPLE Dr Clarkson, a special ad- viser to the provincial health and social development department, cited the exam- ple of an elderly woman who is obese, has a failing heart and arthritis of the hips and knees. "The obesity, as you well know, aggravates a failing heart because it throws an un- necessary load on the heart pump and the additional weight her knees and hips have to bear aggravates her arthritis "This limits the-extent to which she can get around and. of course, this lack of activity causes further deterioration of her arthritis Dr. Clarkson said hospitals must develop assessment, rehabilitation and continuing care programs for the aged He said that while Alberta has a relatively young pop- ulation, it would be impru- dent to postpone the organiza- tion of services and resources to meet the medical needs of the elderly He also said that univer- sities in North America must develop programs in geriatric medicine Currently hospitals have been forced lo recnn1 perialr- -iortnrs from Great Britain Whil' X per rent of j ,M 'cars old or older tlh-
