In his letter to all hospital board members iii the prov- ince, Mr. Henderson said "it would appear unwise to antici- pate any general increase in the rate of provincial payments for your hospital during the coming fiscal year." Mr. Henderson explained that the probable growth of provin- cial expenditures of six to eight per cent "will be barely ade- quate to cover increased costs due to the expansion of the hos- pital and nursing tome pro- grams that will come into op- I oration in Ihe year ahead." He said that departmenl of I health costs had risen from S84.5 million for 1965-00 to a projected million for 1970- 71, the per cent increase rang- ing from 13.5 per cent last year to as high as 22.2 per cent for 1967-68. The Taber General Hospital board is also faced with un- known increases in salary ex- penditures (hie to the expiry at the year-end of all current wage schedules and contracts with negotialions already be- gun between the Alberta Hospi- tals Association and various staff associations in Edmonton. In consideration, also, of price increases of practically all goods purchased, and addi- tional cost due to Hie inefficien- cy of the present hospital build- ing, the board forecasl a pos- sible 10 milt levy against dis- trict ratepayers. Historically, in 1CC8 tlie pro- vincial government levied four mills and the hospital three for a total of seven; in 1969 the government rate was un- changed and the hospital's sup- plementary requisition went up to four mills for a total of eight mills. In 1970, the government re- moved the four mill general levy and the hospital district was obliged to increase local taxes to 5.5 mills which was unless some drastic change in f i n a n c ing of hospitalization should o c c u r. it is almost in evitsblc that a 10 mill levy will be necessary in 1970. The rate will, of necessity, depend on salary increases as determined by current negotia tions and a clear definition of Health inadequate to meet costs in the amounts of grants avail- Wins race FERNIE (HNS) David Derek, Fernie High School stu- dent, recently won a cross- country race al Creslon, B.C.

By HOSS GIBli Herald News Service TABER A 10-monlh oper- ating deficit of was re- ported by Ihe Taber General Hospital's board of directors for the 1970 period through .Octo- ber. This represents more than 10 per cent of the spent during Ihe period against which is receivable from Ihe provincial government. Expenditures were made up of for nursing services, S75.096 for special services mainly laboratory and radiol- ogy, S9.384 for nursing educa- tion, and for all admin- istration and general services, less revenue of recover- ed for meals and other services provided for free. Revenues of included of local receipts 'and received from the pro- vincial government ta grants and special payments. However, the financial state- menl prepared on a government form does not reflect the ap- proximately received by supplementary requisition from contributing municipal govern- ments. Simple arithmetic dictates the indicated deficit is more than offset by Ihe local requisiions which should cover any furher "deficit" incurred in hospital op- eration for the balance of the year.
