Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta SPECIAL CHRISTMAS CHARTER Calgary London, 21 dnys Depart Dec. 17th return Jan. 7th Only pluj Cancellation Insurance Please book before Sept. 17th ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centra Village Mall Phone 328-3201 The Lethbridtjc Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, September 5, 1973 PAGES 17 to 32 LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lethbridge, Alberta Phcne (403) 328-7411 CURRENT STORE HOURS: to Mon., Tues., Wed. and Fri. Thurs, to Closed Saturdays Sedatives arrive as hig poisoner Sedatives are the number one poisoning agents among drugs, including common as- pirin, says the director of the province's poison control cen- tre. Dr. Charlotte Dafoe says in an article in the August is- sue of the Alberta Medical Bulletin just published that the arrival of sedatives as the leading poisoning agent among drugs is part of the trend which began in 1969. Total number of poisonings by drugs in Alberta are rela- tively constant, but the in- creased abuse of sedatives has filled the gap left by decreased abuse of common aspirin. Abuse of common aspirin in children under five has de- creased five times. The Alberta Medical Bulle- tin is the official publication of the Alberta Medical Asso- ciation, the collective voice of the province's phys- icians. Officials at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital say thsir figures show the same _in- crease in sedative poisoning cases and a decrease in all poisoning cases in children school age and below. 35 monthly treated here The Municipal Hospital handles most poisoning cases inLethbridge, averaging more than twenty per month. St. Michael's Hospital aver- ages less than 15 par month. The hospital officials added the number of poisonings in laie age 18 to 25 group has approximately doubled in the past three years. Dr. Dafoe says this is the trend across the province and points to a growing number of females in this age group ingesting overdoses of seda- tives. In 1972, a total of 501 fe- males aged 16 to 24 years in- gested an overdose of head- ache tablets and sedatives. The equivalent figure for women at all ages over 24 years was 554. Poisoning in the 15 to 24 year-old popula- tion now exceeds that in the under five category and the increase is largely accounted for by the increased inci- dence in females, she ex- plains. The total number of seda- tive poisonings in Alberta has increased from 860 in 1969 to in 1972. Sedatives in- clude barbiturates, non bar- biturate sedatives and tran- quillizers. Librium most abused A report by the federal health departm e n t, released last month, showed the tran- quillizer Librium poisoned more Canadians in 1971 than any other single substance. The tranquillizer ousted children's aspirin as the most common cause of poisonings reported to Canada's 308 poi- son control centres. Dr. Dafoe points out, how- ever, the incidence of the misuse of perscription drugs could be much higher than figures indicate. "It Js only in the last two years that records have been kept of poisonings due to drug abuse (non-medical drug These cases are obviously under-reported and only the worst examples cen- are seen in treatment she says. Dr. Dafoe adds that poison- ing episodes in adolescents or adults may represent drug abuse or suicide attempts. "Treatment, therefore, must be directed not only to the acute episode but to the fnilnw-iip of these individuals In an effort to help them their problem." 'Quality would be improved? Vegetable report stresses grading By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Stricter grading controls at the producer level and more grading facilities, all design- ed to halt the downfall of Al- berta's vegetable industry and improve vegetable quality, are expected to be high on the list cf recommendations of the Alberta Agricultural Products Marketing Council. A special report just com- pleted by the marketing coun- cil following months of public hearings into the province's vegetable industry, will soon be made public by Agricul- ture Minister Hugh Horner, The Herald has learned. Alberta Department of Agri- culture staff were introduced to the report at a special meeting in Edmonton Tues- day. All segments of the vege- table industry wnich submit- ted briefs to the marketing council sponsored public meetings In Alberta were to be informed of the contents of the report in Calgary today. The full impact of the mar- keting council" report won't be known until the producers have had a chance to react, Clark Ferries, chairman of the council told The Herald Tuesday. The council will make spe- c i f i c recommendations to the ills of the indus- trj" but it wiE be up to the producers to decide which route they want to take to help themselves and their in- dustry. Mr. Ferris said if the rec- ommendations of the report Defensive driving courses planned for reserves The Alberta Safety Council will be setting up a defensive driving program for Indian reserves in Southern Alberta, a council official said Tues- day. The council has just train- ed five Indian and Metis peo- ple to promote defensive driving courses among native people in Northern Alberta. Bob Novikoff, assistant to the general manager of tha council, said in a telephone interview that with the pro- gram in Northern Alberta "under our they will be looking for native people in the southern half of the province. He said defensive drivar training, which in v o 1 v es classroom work exclusively, is being taught throughout the province in an attempt to reach all drivers. But. hs said, because na- tive people are often in iso- lated areas, the council is training other natives to take the courses to tha reserves.

Dog bites 5-year-old RAYMOND A five-year- old Raymond girl suffered severe facial lacerations when bitten by a dog Tuesday eve- ning. RCMP said B e v e r 1 y El- dridge was bitten about p.m. and required extensive surgery at Raymond Munici- pal Hospital. Investigations into the inci- dent are continuing. Hospital group names city man Don LeBaron, administrator of the Green Acres Founda- tion which operates three se- nior citizens' lodges in Leth- bridge, has been named to the Alberta Hospital Visitors Committee. Mr. LeBaron, 40, is among 10 new members named to the committee responsible to the provincial government for in- spections of hospital admini- strations and procedures. The committee is to meet this month and Mr. LeBaron says he will be providing a voice on matters concerning senior citizens' care. Mr. Sherman will be re- sponsible for range and pas- ture improvement programs in the foothills area of the province. He will be setting out forage demonstration plots and or- ganizing programs to help ranchers obtain the maximum production from their forage crops. He will work in conjunction with organizations such as the Foothills Forage Association in solving the hay and pas- ture production problems in the foothills. During the 1950s, Mr. Sher- man was district agriculturist in Lethbridge. are accepted by the producers, the quality of vegetables to the consumer will be greatly improved. This will be done through a system whereby the producers get paid for the quality of vegetables they produce. In any case, it will take a concerted co-operative effort on the part of producers and the industry to make the re- port work, he said. A Lethbridge based agri- cultural official says the re- port won't have any immedi- iate bearing on the price con- sumers will pay for Alberta- grown vegetables. "The wholesale pricing gi- ants who tiy vegetables in the United States and sell in Canada will maintain control of the pricing structure of the Alberta vegetable he said. "Under the new system, Al- berta vegetable producers will be able to establish a solid base for their industry. There will be a new stability in the industry resulting in a more efficient producer." He said the immediate im- pact will be better products on the Alberta counters. Gross fo potato and fresh and processed vegetable producers in Alberta last year were about million. Mr. Ferries feels a concerted effort by the industry could in- crease these gross returns in the future to about million. He feels fresh vegetable producers, the ones selling to farmer's markets and at the farm gate, could profitably in- crease then- present mil- lion gross returns to million by attempting to fill a larger portion of the Alberta mar- ket and by aggressively seek- ing markets outside the prov- ince.
