A veteran campaigner, An- toine Pinay, described the Gaullist split as "a scandal." Former premier Jacques Chaban-Delmas. 57, has official party backing but Finance Minister Valery Giscard d'Estaing, 48, insists Don't Overlook NOOK Coming Soon! on remaining in the May 5 fight even though this would split the Gaulhsts who have ruled France for 16 years. What's more, Giscard d'Estaing told reporters Wednesday he might bring op- position figures into the government if he is elected. The fight within the party was reduced to the two men when Edgar Faure, a former national assembly president, withdrew from the struggle to succeed the late Georges Pompidou. The line-up can still change by April 16. deadline for candi- date registrations. Mitterand, 57, is backed by the Socialist and Communist parties and most of the trade labor move- ment Many observers predict he may top the May 5 presidential poll but without enough votes to avoid a second two-man election fight May 19.

Beaver device tested EDMONTON (CP) A. provincial biologist is experimenting this summer with a device that may ease the problem of beaver dams without actually removing the beavers. John Gunson of Edmonton will have crews install small plastic culverts, containing numerous perforations and a control gate, in the dams. When the gate is opened at critical times, such as when farmers want to harvest a hay crop, it's practically impossible for beavers to stem the flow of water, he claimed. Company pleads guilty EDMONTON (CP) Capital Towers Land Investments Ltd. of Vancouver pleaded not guilty in provincial court Wednesday to a charge under Alberta's Real Estate Agents' Licensing Act.
