ARDA is a federal-provin- cial cost sharing program. Charles Drain (SC-Pincher Creek-Crowsnest) brought the matter up by saying ranchers in the Pincher Creek area are concerned about the range improve- ment program being phased out.

Man claims innocence in trafficking case A 27-year-old Lethbridge man charged with possession of hashish for the purposes of trafficking claimed at his trial Friday that he knew nothing about a quantity of drugs found in a house he was renting. Rpbsrt Charles Molnar, tes- tifying on his own behalf, said that he rented the house, which was raided by four RCMP officers Dec. 22 and that he in turn rented out a basement suite. The drugs three vials containing liquid hashish, and a small bag of hashish were found in the basement of the house. Earlier evi- dence had shown that Mol- nar's palm prints were on a paper bag containing the vials and several hash pipes. "I did most of the shopping while my wife was preg- nant." Molcar said, "and my prints could be on every bag in the house." The person renting the suite had access to the base- ment, he said, and would have had visitors in the time he was renting. Sgt. Richard McLaren, tes- tifying for the Crown, told the court that liquid hashish is far more potent than eith- er regular hashish, or mari- juana. When asked to estimate the street value of the liquid hashish, he said two grams would bring about on the street, and that the contents of the vials would cost about ?320. On cross examination b y defense counsel Martin Hoyt, Sgt. McLaren admitted that he was referring to a stand- ard sample, and that the hashish oil taken from Molnar could be less potenl. In summation, Mr. Hoyt contended that there was no evidence to show that Molnar owned the drugs. At the time of the raid, he said, there were about five other people in the house, and yet the Crown didn't call them, leaving the onus on the Car wash loses TV and Operation aphid WALTER KERBER photo ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC chwab Bldg. 222 5th St. S.

"Tt is not up to ths defense to explain away the existence of the Mr. Hoyt said. "Using several smoke- screens, the Crown is at- tempting to saddle the accus- ed with a very serious charge." The trial continues April 27 in provincial court at which time, Provincial Judge A. H. Elfurti will hand down Ms ruling on the possession as- pect of the case. If he finds that Molnar did possess the hashish, then the court will detennine if their possession was for the pur- poses of trafficking.
