(CP Wirepholo) Alberta veterinarians support prepaid plan EDMONTON (CP) Dr. Bill Brisbane, a member ot the Alberta Veterinary Medical As- sociation, says the government, not the farmer, should pay most of the cost of such operations as a Caesarian section on a pregnant cow. Association members, at Crashes plane in search EDSON (CP) A pilot discovered a man suffering from exposure in the bush east of Edson, crashed his light plane while directing a search party to the spot. Murray Linklater of Edsor hsd spotted the young mai lying on the ground and direct- ed the search party towards him by radio contact.

The plan was suggested, should be de- igned by the province's veter- narians. pr. Brisbane, of Edmonton, aid the association will study lie financial implications of uch a plan before it formally ipproaelies the government, IOW IT WORKS He said a prepaid plan now s operating successfully as a pilot project in the Peace River area and the problem is how to make a similar plan practical or the entire province. The Eeace River plan in- volves municiapUties which :ach pay a year. Live- stock men in those areas then pay vastly reduced veterinary "ees. For instance, if a farmer in- volved in the Peace River plan was to bring a pregnant cow .0 the clinic to have the calf delivered by Caesarian section, t would cost the farmer a bas- ic fee. But tlie same operation any- where else In the province might cost the farmer or more plus medicine, Dr. Bris- aane said. He said the rate for each municipality would no! work for the entire province however, because even if ol the municipalities agreed to Join, Ine total funds raisec would come to about 000. Dr. Brisbane estimated th. a province-wide prepaid system Edgar Kaiser takes over as chairman VANCOUVER (CP) Edgar Kaiser, chairman of Kaiser Steel Corp., Kaiser Industries and other major affiliatec Kaiser companies, has been ap- pointed chairman of Kaiser Re- sources Ltd.
