Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Doctors on payroll? WINNIPEG (CP) The Manitoba Medical Association has expressed concern that a lot of public money will he spent on what it calls an "un- proven" scheme to set up 20 community health clinics in the province. Dr. Derek Gellman of Winni- peg, vice-president of the asso- ciation, told a news conference here there "is no reason to be- lieve these clinics would work well. No study shows there would be a financial benefit. The provincial government should await completion of a national study, expected next June, before making any ma- jor commitment to the devel- opment of community health centres, Dr. Gellman said. NATIONALIZATION NEAR Dr. Gellman, in an interview later said tha't from placing many of Manitoba's doctors on the province's payroll, it would be a short step to "nationali- zation, or provincialization, whatever you want to call it." Dr. Gellman's remarks were in response to a speech deliver- ed in St. John's, Nfld. earlier this week by Health Minister Rene Toupjn, in which the min- ister predicted that health care costs in Manitoba will rise 99 per cent in the next five years. Mr. Toupin said much of the projected increase was due to the "fee-for-service" system of paying for health care and what he called the "fragment, ed nature" of health services.

Ernest Medina's court I martial ruled Friday that the jury cannot convict him of pre- meditated murder in the deaths in My Lai in 1908. It can convict him of no more than involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of 100 Vietnamese civilians. The action by Col. Kenneth Howard left only one premedita- ted-murder charge before the jury, the case of a woman Me- dina is accused of shooting in a i rice paddy outside My Lai. j The judge earlier granted a defence motion for a directed acquittal of murder to the death of a small boy, whose shooting was allegedly ordered by Me- dina during the United States BtSIWBUYNOW!

WASHINGTON (AP) United States space agency sci- entists report they've found chemicals "of apparent extra- srrestria.1 origin" that repre- sent new evidence life may exist elsewhere in the universe. The evidence is chemicals from the Orgueil meteorite that ill in France in 1864. The scientists said they found six amino acids and eight types of "pyrimidine" chemicals in le meteorite. And they say new groups apparently ori- ginated somewhere deep in! space. The announcement marks the third time the same team of government scientists has re- ported finding evidence of "life- related chemicals in meteo- the remnants of shooting stars. The celestial dropouts are be- lieved to have originated in the belt of asteroids beyond Mars. They date from the time of for- mation of the solar system, 4.5 billion years ago. The team from the Ames He- search Centre of the National Aeronautics and Space Adminis- tration at Mountain View, Calif., discussed the new finds in a re- port to the 162nd national meet- ing of the American Chemical Society. Their report said the "pyrmi- dine" chemicals found in the Orgueil meteorite are similar to the "life" pyrimidine molecule which is one of the principal building-block molecules of the DNA genetic code chain, the "building block" of virtually all living organisms.

Under the judge's ruling on the 100 deaths, Medina might also be convicted of the lesser offence of negligent homicide, which carries a one-year sen- tence as a maximum.
