2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Seplgfflbir 13, 1971 Patty reports proposed at Banff session Up-to-the-minute medical concept planned BANFF, Alta. (CP) Tire College of Family Physicians of Canada hopes to set up a board of doctors thai report daily from across the cojntry and provide a readily-available national picture of illness for use in health.care planning. "What we need is the wherew- ithal to do Dr. D. I. Rice of Toronto, executive director of the college, said Sunday night. The college has applied for a federal grant to set up the pro- ject, called the "illness observa- tion he told a news con- ference. II would like lo get lo a year for Ihree years. "The concept is thai across the country we would have our membership reporting on a reg- ular basis on what is happening in their flu, side reactions lo drugs and ve- nereal disease Incidence, for ex- ample." Dr. Rice said ebout 50 doctors in each province would be will- ing to undertake tlie daily re- porting. A director and staff would co- ordinate the data and provide weekly reports based on the members' findings. "If one then had a map of the country, you could show clumps of disease in particular Dr. Rice said. "If you studied these over a period of years you would begin to notice trends of unit disease." The Illness observation was one o[ tour projects dis- cussed at a board of directors meeting preceding today's open- ing of a four-day educational as- sembly of 500 family practition- ers from across Canada. The board also recommended studies of the role of family doc- tors and the number of family doclors available in Canada, their present role, where they are practising and what are the needs of Ihe public. A committee on practice man- family doctor works, whether in n group or alone, and find out how he can function more effec- tively and receive greater satis- faction. The college also will look into communication within the pro- fession, said Dr. Bruce Halliday of Tavistock, Ont., president-e- lect. Main topics at the conference will be community health needs nnd clinical education to keep family doctors informed on ad- agement will look into ways Uie i vances in medicines. About one half of practising doctors have not been trained lo give lite kind of care they are giving, an English physician loir1, the conference Sunday. Dr. P. S. Byrne of Manchester said juany doclors "have trained in hospital for practise hi the community." "The real tragedy of our dis. satisfied young general practi- tioners has not been that they can no longer practice in hospi- tal, but that they were only trained in hospital." Resist drug pressure Interpol members urged OTTAWA (CP) The United States, maintaining that canna- bis drugs are harmful, has urged Interpol members to re- sist any pressure (o make mari- juana or hashish legal. Such pressure exists in sev- eral of Intei-pol's in member countries, nolably Canada, where a youth commitlee ap- pointed by State Secretary Ger- ard Pelletier has recommended that marijuana be made legal. A 20-member U.S. delegation to the International Criminal Police Organization including James J. Rowley, director of the U.S. Secret Sen-- ice, led the debate against can- nabis. As the conference ended Sat- urday, delegations representing Medical dispute likely to end soon VANCOUVER (CP) Brit- Ish Columbia's doctors and Heallt Mi n i s t e r Ralph Loffmark have drawn up n Ihree-pdrt agreement aimed at ending a dispute between gov- ernment and the medical pro- fession over the minister's right to intervene In doctor's privileges. The agreement, outlined day by Dr. A. C. Waldie, presi- dent of the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons, calls for: A co-operative approach by Minister feels tests to be banned EDMONTON (CP) Cana- dian protests will lead to can- cellation of a proposed nuclear test explosion on Amchitka Ts- land an Edmonton pastor said during the weekend. "We believe President Nixon Is sensitive enough to listen to our Rev. Robert Pearson of St. Luke Lutheran Church said in an interview. "I really think we're going to stop this blast." Mr. Pearson is chairman of a group called Canadian Coali- tion, which was formed last June to protest the planned un- derground nuclear test in Alas- ka in October. Mr. Pearson, a chaplain at the University of British Colum- bia for nine years, said Cana- dian Coalition is opposed to the test on a moral level and on the grounds that the effects of the explosion will be harmful to marine and fowl life off Alaska and British Columbia. He said a telegram of protest will be sent to President Nixon when he meets with Emperor Hirohito of Japan in Anchorage, Alaska, Sept. 26. CABPET and UNO (Complete fret Estimates! No Obligation!

The tentative agreement, the results of weeks of argument and discussion, is contained in a so-called statement of prin- ciples to be studied by the cabi- net, the college's council and the B.C. Medical Association. The profession first became embroiled in a bitter dispute with the government following an order-m-council which gave Mr. Loffmark the right to de- cide which doctors could prac- tise in which hospitals. Dr. Waldie and Dr. W. J. Cor- belt, president of the medical association, both said the min ister indicated that the order would be replaced by a new one, or by legislation, if all three bodies accept the pro- posed agreement. Details of the agreement will not be made public Lntil the cabinet and the medical organi- zations have seen it. But Dr. Waldie said he decided to dis- close the pact's general nature because news reports had indi- cated Mr. Loffmark backed off from his original position while doctors never changed theirs. Wildlife liarrassed CALGARY have been seen harrassing wildlife near the eastern edge of Banff National Park, say Bow hunters who have stalked game in the area. Chuck Gordon, chief game enforcement officer for the re- gion, said the Alberta Wildlife Act authorizes anyone to shoot such dogs without legal liability. incurring The act applies lo private as well as crown land and the only exception involves dogs used in hunting cougars under special countries from Algeria to Viet nam had supported resolutions that would put more pressm- en the illicit drug trade.

Major resolutions approver, by the congress include one asserting that the latest re search indicates that use of c; nabis "is indeed harmful" am leads to stronger drugs. Supported by Middle Eastern countries that are the ma sources of marijuana and hasl ish, the resolution urged mei sures to eliminate legal cultiv; tion of the weed. A similar resolution urge that legal opium crops be pn gressively limited and that ne steps be taken to eliminate ill gal crops. In Eome Middle Eas ern countries, recent steps elude execution of drug-law vi lators. A resolution from France where American-bound opium refined into heroin, proposec that severe prison penalties ir elude post-release restriction on international movement drug offenders. The suspensio of passports arid other travi documents was proposed. Inlerpol, in association wit the United Nations, is expectec to provide more training for p( lice in smaller countries o drug recognition and trade.

An Intcrpol survey estimate that police stop less than 10 pel cent of the drug traffic, said t be growing in all countries. The Interpol assembl brought delegates from a recoi 95 countries, most of them to policemen from forces desij nated to represent Interpol. Customs and immigratio men, security officers for bank and airlines, and observer from the United Nations snc other international bodies, in eluding tlie Panarab Social De- fence Organization, were in at tendance. Member countries of Interpol which began in 1923. include AI geria, Cuba, Yugoslavia, Chile and many tiny countries, sue] as peaceful Nauru Island in UK South Pacific.

But Mr. Trudeau responded hat the government is choosing he best courses available, not- ing it could not satisfy all the >eoole all the time. That message was made for ilgh school students in Picker- ng, manpower trainees and a press conference in Pcterbor- lugh, lown meetings in Port lope and Cornwall and a radio jot-line show in Belleville. Encounters at a Liberal party reception in Oshawa Friday and he coimty fair at Picton Satur- day were less disputatious. Some of Ihe toughest talk came at Hie last stop of the our, the town meeting in Corn- wall. CRITICAL Mayor Nick Kaneb accused be government of pursuing nti-inflalion pob'cies thai had ed to unacceptable levels of un- mployment, without eradicat- ing inflation itself. Cornwall, with unemployment unning about 20 per cent, had jeen especially hit by specded- p tariff reductions that were qusezing out Ihe products of he city's tcxtilo and chemical industries. Mr. Trudeau agreed imem- loyment was noted that oda had the loii'C.sl inflation ate of the western world. Regional incentives were e 1 p i n g slow-growth regions, owcver.

While Mr. Ttudeau defended his fight on the cost of ac- knowledged that the appeal for voluntary price and wage re- straints had not met adequate success. Now, with Inflation and unem- ployment combined, the prob- lem was even harder. But the prime minsiter seemed to dampen prospects for manda- tory controls, such as the tem- porary wage-price freeze im- posed for three months in the U.S. During a temporary freeze, people would hold the line to stay out of jail, then "grab what we missed" when the freeze ended. 10 years, a huge bureaucracy, economic ineffi- ciency and black-marketeering would result.
