Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Blind musician Carla Pingley, an 18-year-old social work fresh- man at West Virginia University, cheers the Moun- taineers on to victory much the same way as Carla's supporters cheered for her at Saturday afternoon's football game. Carla has been blind since birth. Photo- graphers trying to photograph the blind member of the marching band finally located her in the stands. Dur- ing halftime, she performed so well that none of the seasoned pro photographers at the game could locate her. Marijuana helps teeth TORONTO (CP) A Toronto dentist says mari-, juana may be the latest weapon against tooth decay. Dr. Harry Slade, 63, said in an interview Sunday he can always tell which patients smoke marijuana "and that sometimes alarms them." What gives them away is the amount of food plaque the carbohydrates residue of food that coats the teeth. Regular marijuana smokers have little or no plaque, he said, but he doesn't know why. The reslilt is fewer cavities because it's the plaque that combines with saliva to etch away at tooth enamel, he said.

McPhail, AMA president elect, told the association's annual meeting Wednesday that the organiza- tion "is gradually breaking away from the close relationship it had for years with the college." Dr. McPhail said the college will be left with the central statutory obligations of licens- ing and disciplining of doc- tors. The association, relieved of that part of its work, would go on to look at scientific and social matters for its members and probably talk to government about such things as benefit schedules and promoting better care for elderly persons and children. Death ruled accidental BECKLEY, W. Va. (AP) The death of a Canadian actress, Margaret (Bonnie) Bray of Vancouver, featured in outdoor dramas here, was due to an accidental overdose of bariturates, complicated by diabetic problems, coroner Dr. Ross Daniel said yester- day. Thursday, September 27, 1973 THE LEtHBRIDGE HERALD TT i i i Bomb hoax Health ministers seek figure dies new cost-sharing deal BOB RUSSELL CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) Provincial health ministers are seeking changes in federal-provincial cost- sharing formulas that they said have caused the least ex- pensive forms of medical care to cost the most. The health ministers said in a joint statement as their two- day annual conference ended here Wednesday that the federal government should share in the cost of a greater number of health programs. Liberal leader may step down EDMONTON (CP) Bob Russell, leader of the Alberta Liberal Party since 1971, is considering resigning from the post because of business and personal pressures. Mr. Russell, 42, said business pressures he is in the public relations field have made it all but impossi- ble for him to carry out a satisfactory job in organizing the party for the next provin- cial election, expected in 1975. He said he will make a final decision in about a week. His resignation would turn the party's convention next March into a leadership contest. Mr. Russell, a resident of neighboring St. Albert, said that because the Liberal party does not have a single member of parliament from Alberta, a major part of his time has been taken up with chores normally done by MPs. He faced a time-consuming load on the provincial side because the party lacks a provincial organizer or ex- ecutive director. The provincial party has had five leaders since the 1960s and has not been represented in the Alberta legislature since 1969. Two representatives from the federal department of health and welfare attended' the conference, but the health ministers will not bring their recommendations directly to the government. Instead, they will fur ward them to their respective pre- miers for consideration, and it will be up to the premiers to pressure .Ottawa for the changes. They said the problem is that Ottawa shares in the cost of medical care only when the patient is occupying a hospital bed. Costs of hospital care are soaring, in some cases to more than per bed daily. As a result, the provinces have tended to place more emphasis on less intensive forms of care, such as that in nursing homes or con- valescence in the patient's own home. But these forms of care do not quality for federal funds. LONG HOSPITAL STAYS The result, said Health minister Bruce Stewart of Prince Edward Island, is that doctors tend to keep patients in hospital longer than necessary in order to save the patient money. "At any one time, 37 per cent of the hospital population could be released." The lack of cost-sharing is felt most keenly in provinces such as Manitoba, which since July 1 has been including all levels of care in its hospital in- surance plan. Health Minister Rene Toupin of Manitoba said that the program was launched despite the fact that there was no federal incentive. EDMONTON (CP) James Cameron. 65, who threatened to blow up The Journal last month, died Wednesday in hospital here. Mr. Cameron, who demand- ed publication of a "personal manifesto" which quoted a number of philosophers and contained some comments of his own, died of acute leukemia, a hospital spokesman said.
