By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer VAUXHALL The Vauxhall Foods Ltd. million dehy- drated potato processing plant was officially opened here Thursday by Premier Harry Strom. Construction of the plant began in March of 1970 on the new site two miles east of Vauxhall. The plant covers an area of square feet. The actual production area covers square feet with the plant rising three storeys in sections. I Equipped 'to process about pounds of potatoes day, the plant will utilize the latest technological advances in material, handling and pro- cessing techniques. The plant has two vaults with a hold capacity for tons of potatoes. Due to the additional pro- cessing facilities, the potato acreage in southern Alberta in- creased to about acres in 1S70. compared with acres a year earlier. Seasonal employment for the new plant will be provided for about 25 persons in addition to the permanent payroll of 75, all of whom will be hired from southern Alberta. Vauxhall Foods will be en- gaged in the production. of granulated potatoes. The whole milk fortified product will be packaged for domestic use and for overseas shipment to sev- eral European countries and possibly southeast Asia. Vauxhall Foods Ltd. is a wholly Canadian controlled company, with ownership di- vided among several potato growers throughout southern 'Alberta. Kaz' Tajiri of Vauxhall is president.

"Alberta has often been crit- icized in past years for export- ing raw products rather than processing them in Alberta, but this was an important step as it is first necessary to show buyers that we had a quality product. "Alberta is at the moment the only province in Canada without a soft spot in its econ- omy, and this is but the begin- ning of better things to come."

By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Munici p a 1 Hospital board decision to pro- ceed with the psychiatric ward expansion, with or without gov- ernment assistance, was reach- ed because "the provision of extra beds couWn't be put off any 1 o n g e the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce was told. Part of the obstetrics ward at LMH will be converted to a psychiatric ward to increase the bed capacity to 28 from the present eight. Chamber vice president Terry Bland, who is also an LMH board member, told the chamber council the to expansion was needed to fill a vital service for south Alberta as set down by the Blair Report on mental illness. He said the LMH will look ;o the government to be reim- nirsed for the expenditure but if this fails, the board will have I to requisition the municipalities for the needed funds. Mr. Bland said the expansion of psychiatric services for Leth- bridge has been a continuing battle for seven years. "At that time, in 19G3, the doctors in the city made a sug- gestion to St. Michael's Gen- eral Hospital to include the add- ed services to the new construc- tion slated for that institution but it was refused by the min- ister of he said. "In 1964 the suggestion was made to integrate psychiatric services with LMH and S't. Mi- chael's and in 1965 three senior officials from the government toured the facilities. They de- cided there were not enough qualified people in the area to operate expanded services." He said a report in 1965 stated a 50-80 bed psychiatric ward was needed to fill the needs of south Alberta and in 1967 money was made available for an architect to assess the de- velopment at LMH as to the suitability for expansion. In 1968 the minister of health said he could not grant the add- ed services in Lethbridge. "A mental health advisory committee, made up of a cross section of the citizens was form- ed and recommendations by this committee were repudiated by the he said. "The minister wanted appro- val in principle to co ordin- ate all psychiatric services which Dr. Scott Angus did. The minister then said he needed legislative action by the cabi- net before anything definite could be decided." Mr. Bland said the number of qualified people in the city was Hospital Advised To Not Proceed A letter has been forwarded to provincial Health Minis t e r James Henderson by.Leth bridge Municipal Hospita" board announcing its decision to proceed with renovations to the hospital to provide 20 addi- tional psychiatric beds. Frank Russell, chairman ol the .hospital board, told The Herald Thursday he had phoned Mr. Henderson following the meeting to advise him of the board's plans, indicating that a detailed letter would follow. "Mr. Henderson advised against proceeding without ap- proval of the health depart- Mr. Russell said. "How- ever the board felt it was a last ditch move to provide the services needed in the commu- nity." He added that a letter will be sent to the municipal- ities in the area notifying them of the decision. "No funds are available as yet for the Mr. Russell said. "We have the right to requisition the city for funds, but we haven't got. to that stage of the financing yet."

Negligence Charge Laid Kenneth Clinton Nihill, 32, of the Picture Butte district has been charged with criminal negligence causing death as a result of a two-car head-on col- lision near Picture Butte Sept. 12. Killed in the accident were Geoffrey Lionel Wyman, 63, and his wife Alberta Bernice Wyman, 55, of Picture Butte. Nihill appeared in magis- trate's court in Picture Butte Tuesday and had his case re- manded until Nov. 12 for a pre- liminary hearing. The hearing will take place in Lethbridge. drastic action they have taken in proceeding with plans inde- pendently of the government's involvement, will result in posi- tive reaction from the health department, Mr. Russell, said. AUister Findlay, city finance director, said the city has no jurisdiction over hospital auth- orities' decisions. "I don't know where the. money will come from if the board proceeds with its he said. "If the gov- ernment refuses to finance the renovations they can requisi- tion the city of course, but coun- cil might object to any rise in mill rate at this time."

He said in addition to the doc- tors specializing in psychiatric treatment, there are, many nurses already qualified at both city hospitals. "About 6% per cent of all ad- missions to the city hospitals are for psychiatric problems." Dr. James Thompson, a local psychiatrist, told the council the urgency to get the 20 extra beds is increasing every day. "It is increasingly harder to get patients transferred from Lethbridge to the other major psychiatric centres in the prov- he said. "Besides, it Is a definite ad- vantage to the patient to be treated in the local areas be- cause there is no need for ad- justment to the environment.

This is a person who, while already under the care of his or her doctor, goes on to buy and use legally-available drugs :0f own choice! And, there are many of these self-diag. nosing patients, odd as this may 'seem to you. The danger of self- !diagnosls, white I under doctor's care, should be most obvious. The doctor, lack- jing knowledge of his patient's [self medication, prescribes medications which can possibly react negatively with his patient's personal effirts at self- medication, creating an incom- patibility between the self-medi- cations and those professionally prescribed! Please don't even consider this highly dangerous practice because your doctor is the only person trained to diag- nose and prescribe for your better health. Free parking? Of course.
