Doctors Told On Classification Of Drugs JASPER (CP) All prosecu- tions involving drug convic- tions should be halted until con- clusive evidence is published about the harmful use o[ drugs, Ray Verge, supervisor of spe- cial projects for the Alberta youth department, said here. Mr. Verge was participating in a panel discussion at the an- nual convention of tlie Alberta Medical Association. Young people were repudiat- ing the present lifestyle, he said. Ths "drug scene" culture had evolved only because these children were looking for some- one with whom they could re- late. It is symptomatic of our so- ciety, which lacks warm rela- tionships, he said. The. panel agreed doctors don't like to handle drug mis- use cases in hospital emer- gency wards because they don't know how. "Frankly, we're not with said Dr. K. A. Yongs, head of the University of Alberta psy- chiatry department. THE DOCTOR SAYS Drug Use Danger Sigus Revealed Iii Pamphlet By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Parents who are concerned that their children may get caught up in the rapidly spread- ing use of drugs need to be more sensitive to the d a n g e r signs. "Drug Abuse and Your Child" by Alice Shiller, a new Public Affairs pamphlet, dis- cusses some of tie reasons why young people turn to drugs; alerts parents to signs of drug abuse; summarizes basic in- formation about marijuana and other hallucingens, narcotics, amphetamines and barbitur- ates; and suggests what can be done to prevent drug use and to help a child get off drugs if he is taking' them. This in- formative pamphlet is available for 25 cents from the Public Af- fairs Committee, 381 Park Ave. South, New York, N.Y. 10016. Q What are the dangers of taking amphetamines pep pills daily? What are the side effects? Is withdrawal of the drug a problem after prolonged use A This drug Is olten given to persons who are overweight is an appetite suppressant. It should not be taken by anyone without medical supervision. No one who is overly excitable or has an over active thyroid should take it. The side effects include restlessness, insomnia, diarrhea, palpitation, high blood pressure, tremors, sweating and headache. When taken daily it may be habit forming, in which case withdrawal of the drug may require a short per- iod of hospilalization, Q I had an abdominal op- eration eight years ago and my doctor says I have adhesions. What arc they? Can they be re- moved? A When the serous surfaces in the abdomen or pleural cav- ily become irritated they may stick together. In the abdomen (.his does no harm unless the constricting bands cause an ob- struction of the intestines. Such bands can be Ireed surgically but special precautions are nec- essary to prevent a recurrence. Q I am a girl, 38, anil am engaged to be married. I still wet the bed. My doctor has giv- en ma many tests but has found nothing wrong. The pills he is giving me have not helped. Do you know of any exercise that would help? A No, but some doctors who have special competence in the medical use of hypnosis have cured adults of bedwetting when no organic disease could be found as R cause. Edmonton lawyer Pierre Moussea, Crown prosecutor for drug offences, said Parliament might reclassify marijuana. It would come under the -Food and Drug Act rather than the Crim- inal Code. Dr. Yonge said he believed (here was "excessive con- demnation" of soft drug users when you consider marijuana was initially badly classi- fied." "When you compare the ef- fects ot LSD under the Food and Drug Act to that of mari- juana under the Narcotics Act. it's obvious that the law- makers 'boobed' when they made their classification." The law and medical profes- sions were "stupid" to uphold the legal classification of mari- juana. Mr. Mousseau told the AMA marijuana was originally clas- sified under the Narcotics Act because "we simply followed what the'U.S. has done." He said, however, the classifi- cation, "although was justified because an "ele- ment of still sur- rounded marijuana. "You are the ones who have neglected your duties because of this he told the delegates. "The medical profession hasn't made up its mind wheth- er this is a social or medical Dr. Yonge said. "We're never going to have ef- fective education or treatment until we are certain about what we're treating." Panel chairman Dr. Chris Varvis said there was a lack of treatment centres for young- sters on drugs, and "in any case, there are very few, amongst those who should be assisting, who have the neces- sary knowledge of tow to treat a drug patient."

Firms Refuse To Cover Airliners LONDON (Reuters) An In- creasing number of London un- derwriters are refusing to cover ail-liners for hijack risks, in- formed sources said here Wednesday. About 20 per cent of the bro- kers working through Lloyds ol London, which leads the world in hijack and war risk insur- ance, now are refusing to insure planes against hijacking, the sources said. A spokesman for Lloyds said there had been no over all re- duction in hijack coverage but brokers working through Lloyds were all raising their rates. Sources said the increases in some cases amounted to five Limes the rate before ths recent spate of hijackings and destruc- ion of aircaft. Such an increase would cost some airlines up to a year more on each of their jum- bos. Doctors Keep Heat On MONTREAL (CP) Q u e b e c 's medical specialists continued pressure Wednesday for an opting-out clause m Quebec's medical care insur- ance plan. They suggested a na- tional assembly committee dis- cuss such a provision while me- diation talks continue. On Tuesday, the department of health sent telegrams to hos- pitals warning they would be GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

West opened the of clubs and the ace was played Irom dummy. The opposing trumps were drawn in two pulls ind South led the ten of clubs next and let it ride after West followed with the four. East was in with the queen he paused for i moment to reconstruct his opponent's holding. From South'; play so far, it seemed apparent that the declarer had started with hearts and Ihrcc clubs. This left him with three Cards In spades and diamonds. If he held the ace of diamonds, then the contest was over, for that added up to 10 tricks. In order to defeat the contract then, East must play his partner the ace of diamonds. Now If South'! remaining three cards were divided two and one between spades and diamonds, thcra would be a problem, in guessing how lo eash It was perfectly clear that just as soon -as declarer regained the leal, he could run enough clubs to bring his trick total to 10. In an attempt to probe for more I nformation, East shifted to the seven of diamonds. This appeared to be a "top of nothing" lead and it was his objective to induce West to shift to a spade. The fall of the spots In that suit might clarify the picture. West put up the ace o[ diamonds and dutifully re- turned -the three 'of which was most revealing to his partner. Since the three was presumably fourlh best and the deuce was located In dummy, it became obvious that West had maximum of four spades ind South there- fore held two cards in that suit. East confidently cashed the setting trfcks in spades with the queen and ace. Observe that il East makes the conventional lead of the king ot diamonds first, he has no chance to recover, for South ruffs the continuation and runs for cover placed under trusteeship if they close their doors in support ol a specialists strike. Dr. Raymond Robillard, pres- ident of the ember Quebec Federation of Medical Specialists, told a news confer- Dr. Shulman Charges Answered TORONTO (CP) Allan Grossman Ontario minister of correctional services, said today Dr. Morton Shulman was told by a psychiatrist that publicity could trigger irreparable dam- age to a young boy who is a ward of the department. Dr. Shulman, New Demo- cratic Party member of the leg- islature for Toronto High Park, told a party fund-raising dinner in Peterborough Saturday the boy was tortured 'and sexually attacked in a provincial training school. Ha said a letter demand- ing an investigation was deliv- ered to the minister Sept. 9. Mr. Grossman, in a prepared statement, said a psychiatrist who had been working will] the boy told Dr. Shulman "that [or him to interview the boy or pub- licize the incident could trigger disabling emotional problems." The minister said the incident involved several young boys at a summer camp, a training school. He said department staff investigated the case before Dr. Shulman made his enquiries. "The situation was dealt with appropriatly by the staff at the camp and followed up with a thorough psychiatric ap. the minister said. He said Dr. Shulman's letter was received Friday, Sept. 11 "and brought to my aLLcnlion the following Monday, Sept. II." "I replied on Friday, Sept. JO. It is obvious that Dr. Shulman was more interested in making wild charges than in receiving my reply: lie made his public allegations on Saturday, Sept. ID. ence the government's refusal to allow mediator Mr. Justice Andre Montpetit to consider the opting-out question is an "obsta- cle to the progress of negotia- tions." The government has said the mediator must discuss the legis- lation as it a clause which does not allow a patient to be reimbursed if he is treated by a doctor who has opted out of the plan. Ever since it was passed July 10, the specialists have opposed the opting-out provision, asking instead for reimbursement even if the doctor has opted out. Dr. Robillard said: "In this impasse, we are ready to make a concession to the government in accepting that the opting-out matter be examined by the leg- islature health committee." The government said weeks ago it would convene such a house committ.ee if talks, sched- uled to end this Friday, failed.
