Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LBTHBRIOQE HERALD TiiMday, October Health-care investment limit has been reached says Lalonde TORONTO (CP) Federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde said Monday that Canada has just about reached a limit on what can be gained from fur- ther increases in acute health- care investment. Speaking to delegates at the annual education conference of the Inter- national Foundation of Employees Benefit Plans, Mr. Lalonde said the emphasis now must be on prevention, particularly in such areas he termed diseases of choice or neglect and diseases of af- fluence which may involve factors such as overeating or snowmobiling. There is a point of dimin- ishing returns in trying to raise the general health level, he said. Although there had been predictions that publicly- administered health plans in Canada drive physicians out of the country, put costs out of control and lead to a deterioration of care, Mr. Lalonde said the doctor-- patient ratio has improved and there is a better ge- ographical distribution of doc- tors. Canada has more acute, short-term hospital beds, rela- tive to population at seven per than the United States with five per The working poor should get a better break, Mr. Lalonde added. "We made a start when we tripled .our family allowance payments last year, he said. "But more must be done." Dr. Russell B. Roth, imme- diate past president of the American Medical Association, said the U.S. Medical-care system is concerned more with dollars than with the quality of care.

Robert Gannon criticized the United States Supreme Court on Sunday as a onetime moral Rock of Gibraltar that has failed the United States on the abortion issue. Gannon, former president of Fordham University, said rul- ings by the Supreme Court and lower ones have ignored "the natural law, the divine law" so much so that now "It seems nobody has any permanent rights." "Today it's the Jjaby's he said. "Tomorrow his grandfather had better watch his step." The Jesuit priest spoke at the annual Red Mass of the Guild of Catholic Lawyers in ,St. Patrick's Cathedral. He told an audience that in- cluded Gov. Malcolm Wilson of New York state and Mayor Abraham Beame of New'York City that "the majesty of the law" has been eroded by irreverence and hostility and that one school of jurisprudence theorizes The trouble with trains. The trouble with trains is they all look alike. How can they be different? By the people they use. Take Wally Warner, Assis- tant Superintendent of Transportation, Pacific Region. Wally is concerned with increasing the on-time re- liability of our freight trains. He has been part of a group of operating and transportation people which has effected a 30% increase in on-time freight service on certain key trains. They did it by drawing up a detailed plan of operation for these trains and testing maintain speed in spite of storms, and other unusual circumstances. (We've added as much as 40% more power on some trains.) It's a battle plan, for on- time performance. This kind of planning and action doesn't come out of a machine. It comes from special people. People spurred by the fact they're part of the world's largest investor- owned transportation company. Is this the kind of thinking your firm can use?

Texas cattle after scrapping plans to slaughter calves they said were too ex- pensive to raise, gave some of their calves to an orphan's home Sunday. They indicated more donations were on the way. "The cattlemen want to show the people that we are not a bunch of villains around said James Traweek, president of the Cross Timbers Beef and Dairy Assoc., which had originally planned a mass cattle slaughter on Wednesday to protest high feed-grain costs. "I am pretty sure we will donate some more cattle. I had a few head I would have given if I had known about it sooner." Meanwhile, cattle ranchers in Nacogdoches and Sulphur Springs, where another mass slaughter had been planned for Tuesday, said Sunday they have also cancelled their plans. Initially, the'Texas ranchers announced they would slaughter about calves, most of them dairy animals, because the high cost of- feed made it im- possible for them to raise them and sell at a profit. "nothing is eternally right or wrong, that everything has become as adaptable as poli- tics." He criticized the courts for ruling "an unborn child is not a child but only a mass of human cells" and holding that it has no rights until well along in pregnancy. He said U.S. courts and law have long been subjected to attack on principles but through it all "it was the good old U.S.- Supreme Court that remained our Gibraltar. We thought it was a Gibraltar that would never fail us. Well, now it has failed us." The court ruled in 1973 that state laws prohibiting abor- tion in the first three months of pregnancy were uncon- stitutional. Abortions after the first three months were declared legal but subject to state regulation. Gannon said courts have fallen to the philosophy that "when moral ideals degenerate in a neighborhood, then the law should deteriorate with them." it on the ground.

Fluoridation is both costly and WASTEFUL. Less than 1% of fluori- dated water is consumed by the children who'are the objects of the treatment. More than 99% of the tax dollar spent on fluoridation goes down the drain on car washes, fire fighting, plumbing, industry, gardens, lawns, etc. It is estimated for example, that if a city were to spend a year for the artificial fluoridation of its water supply, less than worth of fluoride would reach the children for whom the medication is intended. Fluoride tablets and drops are available at a small fraction of .the cost of fluoridation with its expensive equipment, maintenance and waste. This would insure a CONTROLLED, supervised dosage without forcing a DRUG on those who might be harmed by it or who do not need or wish to take it. Save taxpayers' money by not having expensive fluoridation mach- inery installed. Prior to banning fluoridation in West Germany in 1971 German Water Engineers threatened strike action if forced to continue to fluori- date. We believe it should be considered a crime to FORCE a drug on another person when that person harms no one else by wishing to refrain. A timely warning by Dr. K.A. Baird, reputable physician and Aller- gist of St. John, N.B. can not be ignored. In an article to the Medical Jour- nal, Canadian Doctor (July, 1969) Dr. Baird cautions, and we quote, in part: "MANY THOUGHT THALIDOMIDE WAS 'SAFE1. IT WAS'NTT Dr. Baird went on to say, "Before you let your MD be used to support fluoridation of drinking water as safe for everybody, should you not be able to answer the following questions affirmatively? Have I read one scientific article about the medical aspects of fluoridation? Do propon- ents of this Mass Medication have all the known facts? Have they done any real research on possible harmful effects? Dr. Baird states the answer is usually NO.
