Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IE7HBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, September 11, 1970 Medical Group Has Doubts On Blair Report Usefulness JASPER (CP) A commit- tee of the Alberta Medical As- sociation lias expressed doubts about the practicability of a provincial report on mental health published in 1909. The costs of implementing recommendations of the report, called the Blair report after Dr. William R. N. Blair, would be astronomical, the commit- tee on hospitals said in its re- port to the association's 65th annual convention. The committee said it was not concerned with the Blair report's recommendations that affect hospitals. Drug and alcohol withdrawal and detoxification should be carried out in general rather than mental hospitals, the com- mittee agreed. But it suggested that special facilities and per- sonnel would have to be made available in general hospitals. Trial Opens Chain Blow. Fatal CALGARY (CP) One of 13 men accused in the non-capital murder of Ronald George Hartley, 23, of Calgary struck a fatal blow to the victim's head with a chain, Crown Pros- ecutor Ed Adolphe claimed Monday. ..He told an 11-man jury, at the opening of the trial in Al- berta Supreme Court, that he would introduce evidence to show Hartley was killed while travelling to a pre-arranged party involving the Outcasts motorcycle club and the Grim Reapers motorcycle club. The 13, ranging in age from 18 to 27 years, are charged in the March 7 beating death. Hartley was pronounced dead at Calgary General Hospital alter he was taken from a rural road southeast of the city where the incident is alleged to have occurred. The Crown's case rests prin- cipally on the testimony of Bonnie Jean Hartley, the vic- tim's wife, and of persons ac- 10-Cent Tlieft Appeal Lost LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (CP) The Arkansas Supreme Court upheld Monday a three-year jail sentence against Young Had- cliff, who was convicted last year when he was 17 of stealing 10 cents from another youth at gunpoint. In turning down Bad- cliff's appeal, the state high court said: "It is immaterial of what value the thing taken is. A penny as well as a pound thus forcibly extorted makes it rob- bery." companying Hartley to the party. Evidence of sticks, clubs and whips being carried would be presented, the prosecutor said, as well as police evidence of whips seized at the homes of several of the accused. Drug Firm Employees On Strike CALGARY CP) Thirty- nine employees of the Alberta- National Drug Co. Ltd. walked off their jobs Monday night af- ter company officials rejected a last-ditch proposal earlier in the day. Bud Hodgins, business agent for Local 980 of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, bargaining agent for the workers, said the union proposed a two-year contract which would lead to a ?57-a- month increase for warehouse and office employees. The company's final offer, he said, would have given the workers a wage boost at the end of the same period. Union members reject- ed the company's proposal Fri- day. The union wants a month increase retroactive to April 1, 1970, and two month increases starting Dec. 1, 1970, and Aug. 1, 1971. Alberta-National Drag offer- ed retroactive to April 1, 1970, and a further starting April 1, 1971. "These cases cannot be In. dexed in the ordinary genera surgical or medical wards." The committe also opposed Blair report recommendations that the college of physicans and surgeons eliminate restric lions on eligibility to encourage psychiatrists and trainees fron elsewhere to enter the prov nice. The committee said this would be a step toward lower ing of qualifications. "This is a retrograde step, a step no licensing body would be prepared lo take." Tile committee's report also said there is a need for an in crease in the number of auxil iary hospital and nursing home beds in the province. The committee on materna welfare said therapeutic abor tions now should be lookec upon the same as any othei medical problem. If a patient wanted an abor tion and could convince her physician that she should hav one, then ethically a therapeu tic abortion should be perform ed. Currently if a physicain was convinced the patient shoult have an abortion, he must take his decision to a committee of his peers. "From an ethical point ol view this is wise, and it is a safeguard for the patient, the physician and the Ihe report said. The committee on medica aspects of traffic accidents tolc the convention that a nationa" traffic code should be devel oped, giving uniform traffic rules across Canada. The committee said varying codes used in the provinces of- ten cause confusion for drivers and lead to traffic accidents. Committee members recom- mended that a vehicle testing program be reintroduced by the Alberta government and that seat belts be available and used in all passenger-car- rying vehicles except city bus- es.

Dr. John Najarian, chief of surgery, transplanted the kidney of a six-year-old child into William's body. Canadian Businesses Abroad Urged To Be More Aware .VANCOUVER (CP) Fed eral cabinet minister Donald S. Macdonald called today on Ca- nadians doing business abroad in the to display more awareness of racial and national sensitivities. Mr. Macdonald, president of the Privy Council and govern- ment leader hi the Commons, told the annual meeting of the Canadian Chamber of Com- merce: "If the Canadian firms doing business abroad would apply the same rules that we apply to firms doing business in Canada, maybe they won't have to seek the assistance of the Canadian foreign service from political action by foreign governments." Discussing relations between government and business, Mr. Macdonald cited riots with anti- Canadian overtones earlier this year in Trinidad and some other places where Canadian banks, mines and other industries oper- ate. The minister said much of the Caribbean trouble was beyond the control of business or gov- ernment. SHOULD DO MORE "But I wonder if the Canadian firms doing business in the Car- ibbean have besn as sensitive as they should to the question of color and to the question of ena- bling local residents both to ac- quire positions of executive re- sponsibility and equity in Cana- dian companies doing business abroad." Mr. Macdonald also asked whether such companies have been bringing promising em- ployees to Canada for training ;o that eventually they could take over the management of Canadian subsidiaries in their own country. "After all, many of us in Can- ada are extremely annoyed when we find foreign business restricting the opportunities for Canadians in companies carry- jig on business in Canada." He also suggested establish- ment of courses on government organization as part of ad- vanced-management business programs at one or both of Ot- tawa's universities. Businessmen may also gain a better understanding of govern- ment by making fuller use of a personnel-exchange program whereby private business execu- tives trade places for a while with public servants. Japan Offered Alberta Produce TOKYO (Reuters) Visiting Premier Harry Strom of Al- berta asked Japan today to buy more farming and dairy prod- ucts from his province, a Japa- n e s e government spokesman said. JOBLESS TOTAL TO CLIMB WINNIPEG (CP) Donald MacDouald, president of the Ca- nadian Labor Congress, said Monday ho expects unemploy- ment in Canada to reach nine per cent next year. 'We will see the highest rale of unemployment this country has seen in 10 he said in an interview. Mr. MacDonald, leader of the congress, said the federal government has a "psychotic preoccupation with inflation and is doing no- thing about the unemployment in (lie country." The CLC president, here for a congress executive meeting starting today, called Uie gov- ernment's wage guidelines "a dismal failure." Homer Shouts At Olson In Agro Marketing Debate OTTAWA (CP) Jack Hor- ner accused Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson of mouthing "evasive balderdash" Tuesday to kick off the autumn round of the great agriculture marketing debate. The Commons agriculture committee went into special ses- sion with Mr. Olson's urgent ap- peal to speed up consideration of the controversial proposed legislation which would set up a national farm marketing council and national marketing agen- cies for specific commodities. The bill received second read- ing in the Commons in June after prolonged Conservative opposition, based on the claim that farmers would lose all con- trol of their production and marketing under the bill. If it is not approved by com- mittee and passed by the Com- mons and Senate before current sessions of both bodies are prorogued, probably shortly after tfe Commons resumes sit- ting Oct. 5, the biH will have to be re-introduced. URGENTLY REQUIRED Mr. Olson told the committee Tuesday that passage of the bill urgently required to prevent nterference with interprovincial jade in agricultural commodi- ies such as chickens and eggs. The federal government and provincial ministers had agreed at the federal-provincial confer- ence earlier this month, he said, 'Stop Hiding Behind Staff Business Leaders Are Told VANCOUVER (CP) A VIontreal business leader told he Canadian Chamber of Com- merce today that business lead- ers should stop hiding behind hired hands and tell their own story to the public. Robert C. Scrivener, president of Bell Canada, Montreal, told .he chamber's annual conven- ion that the impact of instant communications makes it neces- sary for business spokesmen to :ake a new look at their role in .nforming the public. "Let's stop insulting our- Mr. Scrivener said. 'Let's appear more often before critical audiences and let's gain .he experience we need to bet- ,er put before the public the case for tile latitude business properly needs to perform effec- ively to the benefit of the whole Canadian community." He said business could not delegate this responsibility to subordinates f professions lired for the job. "Businessmen have, to a large extent, developed negative attitudes towards the news media and its reporters and this ias tended lo widen the commu- nication gap. It is the business leader him- self who has to personally break out of the defensive formations we have created." Mr. Scrivener also referred to IN IETHBRIDGE: 613 4th Avenue South Phone 328-4214 El Al Normal TEL AVIV (AP) Striking 11 Al Airlines ground personnel returned to work Tuesday and (light schedules relumed to nor- mal, nu airline spokesman said. what he called a Canadian at- tempt to play ostrich in the "ex- cessively chauvinistic attitudes toward foreign capital." "This is simply protectionism in another he said, "and as such suffers from all its de- fects to say nothing of being an historical anachronism." that handling regulations on na tional movement of agriculture products under tha proposed ac would be superior lo talcing indi vidual cases of alleged provin cial interference to the Supreme Court of Canada. .Alt Cleave Biggar) and Mr. Homer both charged that Mr. Olson should be asserting the federal govern ment's power to control inter provincial trade. The federal government, sale Mr. Cleave, should .take "al steps" necessary to establish that authority. Mr. Homer asked why the federal government was not ap- pealing a Quebec Superior Cour decision that a province's power to regulate internal marketing extends to controlling imports. The Superior Oourt refused ti grant an injunction to proven Quebec's egg marketing boarc from regulating the import o eggs from outside the province The refusal now is before the Quebec Court of Appeal. The federal government is not in volved. Mr. Olson said the govern- ment must abide by court deci- sions. 'Evasive bald erd shouted Mr. Homer. The federa' government had appealed many court decisions and could do so in this case. Mr. Horner asked whether provincial governments woulc be able to opt out of marketing plans devised by the proposed national marketing agencies. Ml'. Olson said they would be able to choose whether they wanted to participate in a par- ticular plan, but once they hac signed to participate they would have to abide by the agreement, at least for the length of time specified in the agreement. And if a province did stay oui of an agreement, the federal government could forbid it to export a commodity to other provinces or force it to limit its exports to an amount agreed to Tipping Idea Thrown Out VANCOUVER (CP) For one trief moment Monday, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce considered asking the government to outlaw tip- ping in Canada. The Guelph, Ont, chamber of Commerce suggested a policy statement that would put tipping "the ancient custom that has outlived its need" on the same basis as begging. The suggestion failed, amid general laughter, to gain ap- proval of the chamber's pol- icy committee and was toss- ed out. Prof. W. T. Ewen of Guelph said he expecled the laughter but insisted tipping was a "degrading practice" no longer necessary in a coun- try where minimum wages were set by law. "This business of tipping is a nuisance and the vast ma- jority are embarrassed by he said. With well over 600 .dele- gates registered for the chamber's annual conven- tion, one som'ce estimated that at 50 cents each, they paid to have their bags carried to their hotel rooms. And that, he said, didn't in- clude the tips at meals. FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-A-1bought 327-4581 A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO BUCTOUCHE. A car rally seemed like a good idea.

He emphasized that farmers would have control over whether or not their provinces joined national marketing agen- cies because in most provinces majority producer approval was required to set up a provincial marketing board or to allow the province to delegate authority that a provincial board would normally have. Under the proposed bill, the provinces and the federal gov- ernment would delegate agricul- ture marketing authority to the agencies. Strom, who arrived here Sat- urday to open tiie Alberta gov- ernment's new trade office in Tokyo, conferred with senior of- ficials of the Japanese govern- ment. Strom was quoted by tiio spokesman as having told Vice- Trade Minister Yoshihisa Ojimi that his province could sell min- eral resources such as coking ccal and oil sands to Japan. He told the Japanese wee- minister that, in return, Alberta would buy manufactured goods from Japan to expand trade tween the two countries. Strom also talked with Direc- tor Tomoyoshi Kamenaga of the food agency and said Alberta is seeking a new export outlet for its agricultural and dairy prod- ucts including grain and proc- essed meat products, ths spokesman said. Strom later paid a courtesy call on Premier Eisaku Sato at his official residence. City Hall Inquiry Open CALGARY (CP) Mr. Jus- tice W. G.
