WINNIPEG (CP) The Manitoba Medical Association has expressed concern Uial a lot ot 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 Gelhnan 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. said.

Dr. Grilman's remarks were in response lo a speech deliver- ed in St. John's, Nfld. earlier this week by Health Minister Itene Toupjn, in which the min- ister predicted (hat health care cosls 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" syslem of paying for health care and what hfl called the "fragment- ed nature" of health services. Two in miming [or nomination CALGARY (CP) -Robert Stanfield, national Progressive Conservative leader, will ad- dress the Calgary Centre fed- eral nomination meeting Sept. 30. Two candidates, Harvie Andre and Ron Helmer, are seeding Lhe nomination in the riding now held by retiring MP Douglas Harkness. He said an alternative would be the NDP proposal for com- munity health centres, with in- tegrated health and social ser- vices and doctors on salary. Dr. Gellmaui said members of the medical profession are becoming more concerned about the possibility that even- tually they may be full-time employees of the provincial government. In another move, the Deputy Health Minister, J. Andre Oucl- lelte, has sent letters lo board members of seven health care institutions in the city, propos- ing that the province buy the institutions for a token SI. The suggested takeover of Winnipeg General Hospital, Winnipeg Children's Hospital and five other institutions would be through government order-in-council. They all are owned by the city and get fi- nancial help from other govern- ments.

Ernest Medina's court I martial ruled Friday that tire jury cannot convict him of pre- I meditated murder in the dcatlis I in My Lai in 1968. I 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 rice paddy outside My Lai. The judge earlier granted a defence motion for a directed acquittal of murder in the death of a small boy, whose shooting was allegedly ordered by Me- dina during the United States Army operation at My Lai. Unrior the judge's ruling on Die 100 deaths Medina might also be convicted of the lesser offence of negligent homicide, which curries a one-year sen- tence a.s a maximum. Involun- tary manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of three years. Before the judge's ncljon, Me- dina stood charged with the pre- meditated murder of the 100 ci- vilians by refusing to intervene and discovering thai his troops were murdering them. Defence lawyer F. Lee Bailey paid afterward at a news con- ference that the judge took the action because he found thc- I U.S. government's charges not substantiated by its evidence.
