He explained that many of the local doctors are becoming old and are cut­ ting down on their emergency room serv ice. He said the $100 rate would be an incentive to get the doctors to handle the em e r­ gency room detail. At the pre­ sent tim e, the patient pays the hospital a fee for the use of the room, plus the physician’s fee.

A few w e e k s ago, the Board of Education of South Lewis Cen­ tral decided to a 7 to I vote to show the ftlm , \T h e Reality of Abortion,” presented by Rev. Al­ bert Salmon, Glenfield, lo stu­ dents o f grades 9 to 12. At tbe same tim e , the board paved the way for the showing o f any film s depicting the other, pro-ahortion, side of the issue. The film , the board decided, could be viewed by the students on an optional basis. Some tim e later, the South Lewis Teachers’ Association re­ quested a viewing of the ftlm prior to its being shown icr the students. A number o f teachers then viewed the film and som e found It objectionable and c ir­ culated a petition to ban Its show­ ing to the students. The petition was presented to the Board of Education through D istrict Principal Edward Sleber and listed five points of objec­ tion to tbe showing of the film . Basically, the points were: (1) The film was contrary to the school’s policy of no sex edu­ cation; (2) The parents would have nothing to say about wheth­ er or not thetr children should view the film; (3) The film shows a \ v e r y dram atically and b iased view” of a controversial two- side subject; (4) The film was designed for \shock value” and not for showing to students who lack sufficient knowledge of the subject; (5) The film would ope# the possibility for any \ splinter group” to use the school to furtb- «r Its controversial purposes. The film contained the signa­ tures of 94 individuals, which Included 84 teachers » a number of whom admitted they had not viewed the film - and ten non- teaching members ot the school staff, which to total numbers well In e x c ess of 150 persons. The petition waa reviewed by the board at a regular meeting, at which tim e a motion was in­ troduced to delay showing the film until a pro-abortion film could be obtained. A number of members of the staff attended the meeting to pre­ sent their views. Those in atten­ dance included M rs. Faith Mur­ dock, Albert Hlgby and his wife Ltods-Rae Hlgby, William An­ derson, Owen W illiam s, John Dryden and Richard VanRy. Not a ll, however, made statements to the board regarding the show­ ing of the film . When the vote was taken, the motion failed to pass, 4 to 5. The board decided later to show the film only to students who had obtained permission slips from thetr paxetas.
