Tueidoy, Oetobtr TO, 1972 THt LETHBRIDCl KIRA1.0 7 Alberta in no hurry BANFF (CP) Health Min Istcr Neil Crawtord says th. Alberta is in no hurry to ac cept the recommendation of a federal report seeking establish- ment of community health cen- tres in each province. The province wants to explore new cost-sharing arrangements with the lederal government before it makes its decision. He said in an interview that anticipated funding problems were the main reason Alberta joined Ottawa in refusing to encbrse the report presented at the two-day meeting of provin- cial health ministers in Regina. are in the position where the addition of such a new pro- gram under the present cost- sharing arrangements would be all but impossible without finan- cial escalation." He added that the centres would not be classed as hospi- tals which do receive healthy amounts of federal money. "And it is far from certain whether the govern- ment would share the costs of the centres under other exist- ing programs." The federal report envisages the community health centre as a major alternative to the expensive in-patient care pro- vided by general hospitals. The centres would provide out-patient care provided by general hospitals. The centres would provide out-patient facilities in which all health workers from physicians to social workers could work as an integrated team to help prevent and treat illness, and educate the public in health matters; Mr. Crawford was attending the western regional conference of the Canadian Psychiatry As- sociation. George marched anyway WASHINGTON (AP) Sena lor George McGovern marched in the New York City Columbu Day parade Monday, stirring up'a Curor among Republican who said he was not invited. H said he was. The Republican candidate Liberals riding high in Quebec stayed off the campaign trai but Republican House and Sen- ate leaders filed a formal com- plaint with the Fair Campaign Practices Committee against what they called "the smear, the innuendo and the mud-sling- ing" aimed at President Nixon by McGovern, vice-presidential candidate Sargent Shriver and some of their associates. They asked for an investiga- tion by the committee, an unof- ficial body that publicizes com- plaints and invites replies but lacks authority to do anything except make public its findings. Democrats tried to use acainst Nixon the 19C8 state- ment attributed to him thai "those who have had a chance for four years and could not produce peace should not be given anotlier chance." Compounding Republicans' unhappiness over McGovern's march was the presence of a number of chanting, placard- By PAUL WHITE LAW MONTREAL The Literals have increased their support in Quebec wliile the campaign of Quebec Tory leather Claude Wagner is tailing to generate new support for the Conser- vatives, according to a poll pub- lished in La Prcsse. The poll, conducted for the Montreal newspaper by Centre de Recherche sur 1'Opinion Publique, found that 38.4 pc cent of those questioned plan to vole Liberal in the Oct. 30 elec lion- The Conservatives The survey was conducted Sept. 29, almost a month to the day before the federal election. In analyzing the findings, La Presso notes that Liberal sup- port has increased since 1908 it one does not include the respon- ses of those who said they would not vote, were undecided or declined to answer the poll. Not counting this group of re- spondents, the Liberals ob- tained the support 5C.8 per cent of those questioned for the La Presse poll, the Conser- vatives 19.4 per cent, Socia analysis, which would indicate loss of support for the Conser- vatives, cannot be scientifically verified. The survey ako asked which federal leader best "responds to the needs of Quebec" and found strong support for Prime Minister Trudcau. He was cho- sen by 43.2 per cent of those interviewed, while Wagner was picked by only 11.9 per cent. Not far behind was Social Credit Leader Real Caouelte, with 11.2 per cent, Conservative the support of 13.1 per cent o those polled, and the Social Credit followed closely with 10.2 per cent. Only 5.1 per cent said they woulri cast ballots for the New Democratic Party, while 17.1 per cent were undecided, 3.8 per cent said they would not vote and 11.5 per cent declined to respond to the poll. Crcd'l 15.1 per cent, NDP 7.0 Leader Robert Stanfield was per cent and others 1-2. The Literals obtained 53.2 per cent of the ballots cast in Quebec in the general elec- tion, the Conservatives 21.1 per cent, Social Credit 16.3 per cent, NDP eight per cent and others 1.4. The newspaper quotes the firm which conducted the poll fourth with 7.9 per cent, while NDP Leader David Lewis and the chief of his Quebec wing, Raymond Laliterte, each drew one per cent, La Presse points out the pol does not attempt to predict the result of the Oct. 30 election in Quebec, but only what might have happened if voting had as noting this method of' taken place at the time the sur- vey was carried out The relatively weak showing of Claude Wagner can be ex- plained, in .part, by the fact ihat his campaign was only in its first week when the poll was taken and that he is a new fig- ure to federal politics. A sample group ot 472 people In three regions Metropolitan Montreal, Metropolitan Quebec City and the remainder of the province was surveyed. Eng- lish speaking people were among those polled in the Mont- real area. A surprising finding of the poll was that many of those who said they support Quebec independence plan 10 vote for the federal Liberals. Separatist supporters numbered 17.6 per cent of those interviewed, and 70 per cent of this group said they plan to vote: per cent for the Liberals, 17.6 lor the NDP, 15.1 for the Conservatives and lor the Social Credit.

She said attending a parade was different, from par- ticipating in one.

Before the new Republican complaint was disclosed, the Fair Campaign Practices Com- mittee said, without pointing to any particular presidential or congressional candidates, that it had handled a record number of complaints and the 1972 cam- paign "will be the dirtiest in re- cent years."

Dr. McPhail, also director of Glenrose Hospital, said there are some areas of hospital ser- vice .that may have to be changed to relieve pressure on facilities that therapeutic abor- tions are causing. He also said many people are and stop support of the "re- pressive" Saigon government which has "imp-risoncd more than perons" for peace- ful or militant resistance to its policies. VISAS DEN'IED Nguyen Van Cong, president o! the movement of South Viet- namese Catholics to Serve the Nation, told the assembly that a planned delegation from South Vietnam could not get visas to leave the country. A group of seven North Viet- namese priests and laymen at- tending the weekend conference described a flourishing Roman Catholic community of 210.000 active in the literal ion move- ment in the north. "There is complete freedom of religion by law in North Vietnam but that freedom is bounded by the American bombs we live with day and said Mme. Masie Bui Thi Cam, a Roman Catholic member of the North Vietnam- ese national assembly. In an impassioned address to the assembly, Mme. Cam said the danger to Christians in North Vietnam comes not from political persecution as many may believe but from a "crimi- nal war which is destroying my country, my people, our cul- ture." "Our right to determine our own lives must be she said. "We have been living a report showing that 211 com- panies in Canada have direct contracts with the. Pentagon.

Conference organisers said one of the most important jobs the assembly could accomplish would be local grassroots or- ganizations to keep the public accurately informed of the situ- ation in North Vietnam and end some of the scare stories about communism that have led the public to support the Indochina war.

The previous best time, as listed in the Guinness World Book of Records was It was tile second annual chicken-pluckers affair a' Spring Hill, a development of people about 45 miles north of Clearwater on Flor Ida's west coast. The main event, which pit ted Spring Hill against Ma saryktown, was preceded b; the lighting of an "Olympic" torch which spewed feathers into the air and coated a crowd of 1.100 onlookers.

The newspaper said It was the first case in Ontario in which a judge of the Supreme Court trial division has con- sidered whether failure to wear a seat belt constitutes negligent conduct.
