CP Rail disputes speech; s e makes 'full cost reports9 By TERRY McDONALD Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON Industry and Transport Minister Fred Peacock was wrong when he said Tuesday that Canadian railways are not co-operating in providing full disclosure of their costs, according to CP Rail executives and an official of the Canadian Transport Commission. Asked -to comment on Mr. Peacock's speech here to the Committee to conduct study The Lethbridge chapter oi the Committee for an Independent Canada will do PENNER S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave S Phonp 327.4121 semi-arinual meeting of the Canada Grains Council, which ended Tuesday, two Winnipeg-, based CP Rail executives told The Herald their cost figures go to the Canadian Transport Commission in Ottawa. And the CTG then disseminates the information. A CTC costing expert agreed with the railway men and told The Herald: "We do have full cost dis- closure and there is a method for turning it over to the provinces and this has been going on. "We have no difficulty at all. Subsidies are involved and it is in- the railroads' best interests to give us everything we want to do our job, and they he said. The CTC official wouldn't comment on Mr. Peacock's contradicting remarks except to say, "he can say what he likes." George Smelly, CP Rail Medical supply costs jump hurting doctor's profits By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer The cost of medical supplies used by Lethbridge physicians has soared during the past few years, putting a large hole in "doctor's earnings, says the manager of the largest clinic in Lethbridge. Roy Montgomery, president-elect of the Medical Group Management Associa- tion of Canada and manager of the Haig Clinic, says while supply costs have increased, incomes have remained the same. The problem with a physician's income, which the Alberta Medical Association is trying to get increased, is that the doctor is faced with rising costs but cannot pass on any part of the increase to consumers, he says. Under the Alberta Health Care Insurance plan, Alberta physicians may only bill'the" government a specified amount for every he performs Fees for each procedure is listed in the physicians' "schedule of benefits." "Other professions can bill what they want, but here every item is attached to a Mr. Montgomery says. Alberta physicians have had an increase in fees in the past three years, howevej. Fees were increased four per cent on selected items in 1973 and in 1974 an overall four per cent increase was applied to all items in the doctors' But, says Mr. Montgomery, education, says the college is busy developing employee training programs on a con- tinuing basis now. Dresser-Clarke, one of the new industries in this city, has 29 employees participating in a month-long intensive program for machine operators. Upon completion of their training, the machine operators will begin setting up the Dresser-Clarke plant. Johnston will seek Tory nod One name has been dropped and another added to the list of hopefuls seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination for Lethbridge East. Dick Johnston, 34, chart- ered accountant said Tues- day he will seek the PC nomination Nov. 4. A director of the Victorian Order or Nurses and a member of the board of governors at Lethbridge Community College, be recently contested an aldermanic seat on city council. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC who handles the finances of the clinic, cost of supplies and tabor has increased well over eight per cent. Basic supplies used by clinics such as surgical dressings, tongue blades, needles, paper products and disposable gowns and gloves have increased as much as 100 per cent since 1973. Tony Pike, a partner in Packard Medical Supplies in the city, agrees with Montgomery that costs for basic medical items has greatly increased. Mr Pike, who supplies city clinics and hospitals, says the medical supply business was fairly stable two years ago with increases in costs of about five per cent a year'. "Then all of a sudden we are facing one to 10 increases in a single he says. "It all seemed to start with the oil crunch last winter and from then on it has been a... night- mare." Shortages of oil affected the medical supply business dur- ing the so-called energy crisis because many medical supplies are derivatives of petroleum products. A flood in the Mississippi River valley also contributed because it destroyed one of the prime cotton -crops in North America. A100 per cent increase in cotton swabs and dressings followed that flood, he says Mr. Pike says although his profits have dipped, the 'clinics and hospitals are tak- ing the main impact of price increases in medical supplies because he can pass some of his increases on to the physicians. "The clinics and hospitals- have to operate on a Jradget and are taking the brunt of the he says. "If you relate these increases to everything they do, their profits, are squashed." For "example, disposable gowns have increased in cost- 30 per cent since last year and the Haig Clinic, a practice of ,about 15 doctors, would use 15 to 20 cases of gowns each month. Tongue blades have increas- ed 245 per cent in one year and this does not include increases in freight rates, he Other disposable items that medical practitioners use such as gauze squares, up 75 per cent, and needles, up 16 per cent, are causing "a real nightmare for our Mr. Pike says. "Related to volume these items are he adds. "We aren't talking peanuts." its own environmental study on the proposed Alberta Am- monia plant, a spokesman has said An environmental action subcommittee of more than 20 persons has been formed for tne purpose, said Ted Tillack, a director of the chapter. Alberta Ammonia has done its environmental impact study for the department of the environment but the brief remains private property and hasn't been released to the public, be said. This has forc- ed the chapter to begin work on its own submission to the department, Mr. Tillack said. City Scene Witch session cancelled The "witching hour" sponsored by the Women's Place at the library's theatre-gallery has been cancelled. It was to have been conducted tonight. Magrath man charged in theft Charges of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent have been laid against an 18-year-old Magrath man, who was driving a car that was involved in a two-car accident Oct. 12. -RCMP said Vance Vincent Scout will appear in provincial court Nov. 26 in Raymond. Lethbridge RCMP said William Roy Olson, Magrath, reported a 1972 small import station wagon involved in the acci- dent was stolen about a.m. Oct. 12. The car allegedly driven by Scout, collided with another car about 5 a.m. at Mayor Magrath Drive and 19th Avenue South. Scout was taken to St. Michael's Hospital with multiple in- juries. He was recently released from the hospital.

PhOTW 327-3024 prairie region public relations manager, said he wonders where the information is bogging down "because we give our information to the CTC and then it goes to the, provinces." The CTC is the federal body charged with the responsibili- ty of regulating the transport industry. Mr. Peacock's speech Tues- day morning included com- ments that many rural prairie branchlines are in such poor repair that trains must travel at speeds of only five m.p.h. The minister also said he knew of instances of work crews refusing to ride over the lines because they con- sidered them unsafe. J. W Malcolm, CP Rail vice-president for the prairie region, said he knew of no branch lines where trains had to travel as, slowly as five m.p.h. Nor had he ever heard of a crew refusing to work because lines were unsafe "I'm not going to ask a guy to go out on a line that's dangerous." Commenting on Mr. Peacock's remarks that if private enterprise couldn't solve the country's grain Handling and transportation woes than an alternative would be found, Mr. Malcolm said that nationalization would not improve efficiency. "Look at any nationalized railway in the world. None are as efficient as a privately run one, including Canadian National. "And if the government took over the operation of CP Rail the operation would.be worse than it is Mr. Malcolm said. Mr. Malcolm assessed the Canadian system as "a first class rail transportation system There is not a better one in the world, regardless of all the criticism Revamped advocacy plan A change is being im- plemented in the Lethbridge citizen advocacy program to turn aside a slump in that program's activities. Jean Moore, citizen ad- vocacy co-ordina'tor said Tuesday she is looking for "apprentice volunteers" to work at the tiorothy Gooder School and Sunrise Ranch, two facilities for the mentally retarded. Relationships between a handicapped youngster and a volunteer could develop, which is the purpose of citizen advocacy. The program is based on relationships between a men- tally retarded person and his "advocate" who will help the person live a normal life and promote his rights as a citizen. Until nojr the program has taken applicants and matched them with the handicapped person to form the relationship. However, some of the ad- vocates have been dropping out, Mrs. Moore said. Bat if people can work as volunteers a few "could com; fortably work into the roles of a citizen advocate" instead of beginning as an advocate, she added. "Volunteers may become involved either as individuals or as a group through es- tablished service organizations to aid them in their choice of the wide range of roles of an advocate she said. Chamber shared The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce paid a share of the expenses of bringing a Texas accounting professor .to Lethbridge to speak last Friday. Local accountants and chamber members paid to attend the luncheon meeting. The chamber receiv- ed from each admission which it used to help with Charles Zlatkovich's ex- penses, while, Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant received the balance.
