Man takes from station City police are searching for a well dressed man driving a white late model station wagon who allegedly took about from Roy's Gas Bar, 9th St. and 5th Ave. N., about noon Friday. The police said that shortly before noon a man wearing a dark suit pulled into the gas bar and asked the attendant to fill the tank and also asked permission to use the telephone. The man went inside and found the key to the locked till below the till cupboard, opened the till and removed the money. There was about in the cash register at the time but only about was reported stolen. The gas station attendent, Waldemar Hooge, told police he did not recognize the culprit Nursing home beds to be allotted here Time for retreat Helen Balazs, 1216 7th St. N., takes in some of her many plants just ahead of the frost. Cooler weather left the first shiver of frost of fall on car windows and leaves earlier this week. By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON The long waiting list for nursing home beds in the Lethbridge area could be eased slightly when the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital begins its central placement registry for nurs- ing home applicants. Dr. Ray Kimberley, chairman of a medical ad- visory board at the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital, told The Herald a central placement officer is being hired to screen all applicants to see if nursing home care is needed. The officer, probably a nurse, will interview all applicants and continue checking on their status setting nursing home space priorities. The waiting list, which now includes more than 100 names, will change, he said hopefully. But Dr. Kimberley said Lethbridge still needs more nursing home beds. "More beds will not be the total solution to the problem but at the moment the situa- tion is getting to the critical he said. To prompt a solution to the problems of nursing home care the advisory board has sent recommendations to the Alberta Hospitals Services Commission on changes in the Alberta nursing home system. Some of the recommen- dations advocated by the board are similar to those passed here this week by the Alberta Medical Association, including a central placement registry. Dr. Kimberley said his board agrees with the AMA that services and staff in nurs- ing homes must be upgraded. The role of the nursing home should not be that of strict custodial care but must include a great amount of medical care, he said. There is little training available for medical students wanting to specialize in ger- iatric medicine. There should be courses in medical schools specifically for the problems of the elderly, he said. Dr. Kimberley added it will take a major effort to get up- graded training for the staff of nursing homes and get physicians to accept the idea that a doctor must make fre- quent visits to a nursing home. Many nursing home patients have medical problems that a nurse cannot handle, he said. And the problem will increase in the next few years because the largest growing age group in society is 80 years old or more, so there must be more nursing home beds "or we will have major problems." The solution to these problems cannot be developed across the province but must conform to local needs. "We have different problems in he said. The development of workable day care programs for the elderly may be part of the answer to easing the pressure on nursing home beds and active treatment hospital beds used by the elderly, he said. An attempt at such a program in the auxiliary hospital failed earlier this year but will be started again when the central placement officer is hired, he said. The failure of the program could be attributed to accepting applicants who were suited for a different type of program or only runn- ing the program during weekdays, Dr. Kimberley said Honey producer meeting set Alberta honey producers with 100 or more beehives are to meet Monday m Coaldale to decide if they want a honey marketing board.

EDMONTON The Cana- dian health system could learn some methods of medical care administration from the Chinese but the use of acupuncture so far seems to have little application in this country. These were the conclusions of two members of a panel dis- cussion on acupuncture and Chinese medicine at the final session of the Alberta Medical Association's annual meeting here Friday. Dr. J.W. Mclntyre, a professor in the department of anaesthesia at the University of Alberta, said acupuncture analgesia, its use as an anaesthetic, has little applica- tion for people in Canada. The use of acupuncture as an anaesthetic has drawn more attention than its other alleged uses from western doctors Dr. Mclntyre said although the treatment seems to be of little value now, it should not be forgotten because it produces the analgesic effect naturally without drugs The physician listed disad- vantages of the treatment which included: the insertion of the needles was unpleasant, muscle relaxation is minimal and the treatment is not applicable to all branches of surgery. Advantages include: it is safer than drugs, its cheap and patients can co-operate with the surgeon. Another speaker, Dr. J.D. Wallace, secretary general of the Canadian Medical Association had favorable words for the system of health care in China. He said health policy and planning for people is done at the "grass roots level" by the people in China, who decide what level of care they want provided for themselves and how much they will pay for health care. Dr. Wallace said Canadians could learn from this type of decentralization that the Chinese have effectively im- plemented. Some people pay as much as 25 per cent of their income on health care and others sub- stantially less depending on what level of care they want provided in their area. Each area votes to deter- mine the amount spent by each person and on what the money is to be spent. Hamlet faces bad water By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer FRANK (Staff) Frank's new mayor, Jim Horejsi, was just sworn into office Friday and today he already faces a "major problem a village water supply that doesn't meet the requirements of the provincial department of the environment.
