Dr. Paul H. T. Thorlakson, who always keeps abreast of the changing times, conceived the idea of a congress to pro- vide a forum for the discus- sion of effective health ser- vice delivery in this modern aige. He contacted medical men in many countries with the result that 850 delegates from 21 countries attended the congress held in Winni- peg, April 26 to April 30. The preparations for the congress were made by var- ious committees numbering close to a hundred people, Dr article by Judge W. J. Lindal which appeared in Icelandic Canadian last year and ex- presses well the amazing lead- ership qualities of Dr. Paul H. T.

Personal animosities do not i n f 1 u e n c e Dr. Thorlakson. Former Prime Minister John G. Diefenbaker has often stat- ed that he does not allow himself the luxury of hate. By that yardstick Dr. Thor- lakson rates at the top. To him very few, if any, subjects are non-negotiable a n d in negotiating he is always willing to yeild when the preponderance of argu- ment is in opposition to the position originally taken by him. Dr. Thorlakson has, not a jealous mind and he is quick to congratulate when merited recognition is given to others. In t h i s shrinking world where a man of Asia can look into the backyard of a man of Miami, Florida, or, better still, where the actions of ex- ecutives and planners, good or bad, very soon reveal themselves to a hungry press, and the impatience of a few students, who magnify the failures of the past, is im- mediately communicated radio waves with the speed of light and in actual TV vision via satellites, co opera- tion and willingness to nego- tiate have acquired a new throughout the world, in'dimension in human action." fSLÁNDSFRÉTTIR STÆRSTA SKIP Kollfinn er nafnið á 26.000 tonna skipi, sem liggur í Straumsvík núna, og er frá Osló.
