Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 30, 1974 'Immigration restrictions mean fewer physicians9 Restrictions to be placed on the number of foreign doctors coming to Alberta could in- itially lessen the number of physicians moving into rural ureas, says an Alberta Medical Association director. Dr. Walter Gray, Southern Alberta representative on the AMA board, says rural areas have traditionally attracted physicians from Great Britain whereas Alberta medical graduates have been going to larger centres. But rural areas should benefit in the future both from the large cities becoming saturated with doctors and the OUR APOLOGIES A story that appeared on this page in Friday's Herald under the headline "Coaldale driver loses licence" was an inadvertant reprint of a similar earlier story. Friday's story claimed that LaMar Navratil "was found guilty this week of dangerous driving" and that his licence would be suspended for six months. In fact, the case was heard in December, 1973 and Mr. NavraUl's licence was subsequently suspended for two months That suspension has since expired. The Herald regrets any embarrassment Friday's story may have caused Mr. Navratil. Many hurt in holidays, safe driving suggested Next week (Dec. 1-7) has been chosen as safe driving week because there are more accidents in December than in ;my other month, says The Consumers' Association of i-'anada. "December is the month when spirits rise and precautions drop.

In December of 1972 there were accidents- com- pared to an average of during the other months. However, fatalities and in- juries during December due to accidents have declined, the CAC says, even though property damage is greater in December than in any other month. The driver, the vehicle and weather conditions are all fac- tors in accidents. Preparing a car for winter reduces the chances of having an accident. The CAC suggests the following things to have a car in top-notch condition for winter driving: sure antifreeze is made with ethylene glycol. snow tires which increase traction on loose snow but which are ineffec- tive on ice where chains should be used. rims of headlights with reflective material so on- coming cars can judge burnt out lights accordingly. Use rear-window defrosters where possible and frost shields where defrosters are not possible. seasonal equipment including a brush to remove snow.

OLIVER INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY LTD. 236 36 St. NORTH LETHBRIDGE Phone 327-1571 effects of a new program to introduce medical students to rural practise, he said. The program, from the University of Calgary medical faculty, has been in operation about two years. Through the program all medical students in their final spend a month training and working in one of 15 com- munity or country practices. But the results of the program whether more students are choosing small practises will not be known for about one and a half years. Dr. Gray says. At that time the profession will be able to see whether the experience in rural practise pursuades anyone to begin in a smaller area. Legislation by government to insure foreign doctors meet Canadian medical standards has been tabled in the legislature and will likely become law early next year when the legislature re-opens. The other factor benefiting rural areas is the closure of many large city hospitals to new physicians. Some physicians who can- not get hospital privileges in Edmonton or Calgary are leaving to practise in areas they can also work in a hospital "I am sure this is why a number of doctors are coming to Dr. Gray says. "And this should also benefit the rural areas." Dr. Gray points out Southern Alberta rural areas have an adequate number of physicians but north of Ed- monton is lacking. There is also a lack of general practitioners throughout the province which the university program could help ease. The program is acquainting students with the work of a general practitioner, he says. Synthetic sweets promoted A city supermarket chain is advising its customers to "beat the high price of sugar" by purchasing a powdered ar- tificial sweetener. Loblaws College Mall manager Ed McLaughlin told The Herald this morning that two sizes of the artificial sweetener went on display Friday. Customer response has been good, he said. The store is encouraging consumers to buy honey and artificial sweeteners because of the high cost of sugar. A five pound bag of white sugar, now sells at Loblaws for The equivalent amount of Sweet and Low sweetener sells for in bulk and in table packages.

BASTEDO FURNITURE MEDIA CENTRE DIRECTOR ELIZABETH DOKTOR SHOWS SCHOOL TRUSTEE PAUL MATISZ THE CENTRE Pretty director mystified by centre use By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer More boys than girls are now using the media centre at Catholic Central High School, the separate school board was told Wednesday when it met at the school. The trustees held their regular meeting at the media centre to hear a report on how it serves the school. Media centre director City Scene in tools reported stolen A tool box and tools, valued at were reported stolen from the back of a truck parked at a Lethbridge residence Thursday night. Brian Rud, 609 llth St. S. told city police his tool box was stolen between 5 p.m. Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday. Truck clips light standard About damage resulted from an accident Friday about a.m. at 6th Avenue and Mayor Magrath Drive when a semi-trailer truck knocked over a traffic light standard. Roger Salmond. 23, of Hudson Bay. Sask., the driver of the truck was uninjured. The traffic light was repaired shortly afterwards and there was no major problems with traffic through the intersection. Lethbridge city police say. Symphony to perform Elizabeth Doktor said boys are showing more interest in using the centre this year. She presented statistics that showed boys usually out- number the girls by more than three to one in the media centre. She was unable to explain the media centre's sudden popularity with boys. Before the media centre ex- panded into non-print materials, it was known as the library. Misa Doklw informed the trustees. It would no longer be appropriate to call it a library because it now includes tapes, cassettes, films, records and many other audio-visual aides, she pointed out. The media centre still resembles a library and has about books in stock and a study area for about 65 students. The media centre is more expensive to operate, requires more maintenance work and creates the problem of mov- ing equipment to the classroom from its central location, she said. However, she added, it does provide an integrated source of a variety of learning resources. The Lethbridge Symphony- Orchestra takes to Yates' stage Monday night for its first concert this season. Under the direction of con- ductor Lucien Needham. musicians will perform works by Tchaikovsky. Haydn, von Gluck. Strauss and Bizet. Making his first appearance with the orchestra is 22-year- old violinist Norbert Boenm. of Edmonton, currently artist- in-residence thanks to a travelling grant from the provincial department of culture, youth and recreation.

Phone 32V-olvo (VOLVO) :i i M i.. a i Equestrian trail system proposed Designated riding and camping areas and a provin- cial network of trails for horsemen has been called for by the Whoop-Op Saddle Club of Lethbridge. In a brief to the Alberta Land Use Forum Friday in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion, the club also called for construction of more public arenas for horse shows. Bill DesBarres, president of the Southern Alberta Equestrian Council presenting the brief on behalf of Whoop-Up Saddle Club president Jim Calder of Coaldale, said there are no designated riding and camp- ing facilities in Southern Alberta and public arenas are "non-existent." The brief stated horsemen, numbering more than in Petition has 630 names More than 630 signatures were last reported on the students union petition being circulated at the Lethbridge Community College campus to gain support for a student protest of a recent provincial government decision. The province refused a re- cent request by the college board of governors to spend a portion of its surplus budget to renovate the old Fort Whoop Up building on campus into a students union activity building. Department of advanced education officials indicated they were not prepared to grant the permission until the master plan of future academic building use is com- pleted. The students argue that the master plan is being used as a delay tactic by the depart- ment because the Fort Whoop Up building is not part of the master plan. The master plan is to be a guide to the future use of the academic buildings and not the overall campus. Student council president Hal Gallup is to approach department officials in Calgary this weekend and ex- press the students' concerns to them. The students feel they are. being reasonable in their re- quest for renovations to an old building. Southern Alberta alone, need arteries to and from urban and rural areas to ride horses. Railway rights of way, irrigation canals, ditches and river valley corridors were cited as examples of arteries for horsemen, to increase en- joyment and safety for all riders. Mr. DesBarres said a start should be made immediately to implement designated areas for horsemen and they should be in operation within one year. This would help non- horsemen also because horses would be kept in the designated areas. The provincial trail network could be in use in five years, said the brief. One disadvan- tage to the network would be land appropriation which would be needed to connect trails throughout the province. Policing will also be needed to make sure the provincial network of trails isn't abused. Ben Loman, a director for the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District, cautioned any appropriation must not take good agriculture land out of production. Irrigation management class starts About 100 technologists and technicians from throughout Alberta will attend a two week course on soil and irriga- tion management which starts Monday at the Lethbridge Community College. Sponsored by the Alberta irrigation division of the provincial department of agriculture, the course will run Monday to Thursday each week. It will start at a.m. and end at p.m. each day.
