The charge was laid in late June when a valve at a gas plant was left open, allowing the chemical to escape into a stream flowing into Smoke Lake. J. E.

Anti-Sykes Campaign Launched CALGARY (CP) Aid. Tom Priddle says he will start a campaign at city hall to cor- rect statements by Mayor Rod Sykes which could be damag- ing to the city's image or em- ployee morale. "From now on 1 will go out of my way to set the record straight and keep the public in- formed. "I want to take a calm and sensible approach to this thing, but I think it's important that this man (Mayor Sykes) doesn't stay in office next election." Aid. Priddle, in his first year on council, said in an inter- view he was concerned senior aldei'rnen had not taken a stand. It was time city council told the mayor his leadership was damaging. "Everyone was a little in awe of the mayor in the light of h i s big election majority and we have let him do almost anything." Morale was particularly low in the city engineering, plan- ning and police departments, Aid. Priddle said. ISLAND MONUMENT tional Monument is made up of seven small coral islands. Max Enkh.ardt told the judge: "i believe that my wife was dead before I shot her. Thank you lor having lis- tened to me." Before pronouncing the sta- tutory death sentence, the judge told Enkhardt it was the only penalty he could im- pose. The prosecution alleged that Enkhardt shot his wife Nov. 3 after she had nagged him about drinking brandy. At the time, she was in bed with gas- tritis. Enkhardt said he shot her because they both believed she was dying of cancer. On the afternoon of the shooting, Enkhardt said, his wife was lying so still he thought she was dead or dying. "I kissed her before I shot her and she didn't show any response to my he told the court.

Government Adds Millions To Anemic Housing Market OTTAWA (CP) emer- gency injection of more than million for the anemic 1970 housing market was announced today by Robert Andres, minis- ter Without portfolio in charge of housing. Mr. Andras said at a news conference that the money, to be made available through the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp., will finance an extra housing starts this year. An additional million will be budgeted to finance the com- pletion of- the extra units next year. Recent indications have shown a drop to fewer than starls tin's year from in 1969. CMHC had ear- lier budgeted millKn for 1970 but other sources of mort- gage capital have been limited. Mr. Andras said the addi- tional financing will be made available under Sections 16 and 40 of the National Housing Act. Section 16 provides for loans for limited-dividend housing con- struction for low-income fami- lies. Section 40 permits direct lending to assist purchase of new housing. The money for limited-divi- dend construction will carry a preferred interest rate of 7% per cent. The charge for the extra Section 40 mortgages will be per cent, Mr. AivJras said. Mr. Andras said there had been some -improvement in housing starts in June but Ihe fact remained that the present over-all rate of housing con- struction is not satisfactory and is of concern to the government. "For one thing, the perform- ance of our lending institutions was below expectation in the first hah" of the year. Another factor is the labor situation, with strikes or work stoppages of other kinds unquestionably bearing their own impact upon the volume of new construc- tion." Mr. Andras he has in- formed NIIA lenders of the ad- ditional direct government in- vestment in housing and asked them to increase their residen- tial mortgage lending. "What we are after as a re- sult of this latest government action is a net increase of new housing starts in 1970 ovei and above the activities of the [lenders or any other pro- j grams." He estimated that the addition of housing starts this year would create additional jobs directly in construction and iSeecl Plants Picketing Extended EDMONTON (CP) Nation- al Farmers Union members, who picketed seed-cleaning and delivery points in the Grande Prairie area Tuesday, Wednes- day extended their protest to Edmonton. Pickets appeared at the Can- west Seed Co. in the northeast section of the city. The union is attempting to stop delivery of fescue seed and wants a guaranteed price of 27 cents a pound for first grade seed. The current price is 15 cents. About 140 NFU members be- ;an picketing Tuesday at five Grande Prairie area communi- ties. that the current level of con- struction activity could accom- modate such an increase with- out strain. A substantial number of jobs in activities related to housing would also be created. Mr. Andras said CMHC offi- cials will be "scrambling" in the next two months to ensure that the new injection of money results in starls before Dec. 31. An addilional SHO million will be made available to coniplele the extra construction in 1971. Mr. Andras also said the gov- ernment is "raising the decibel count" in its appeal to private lenders to increase the amount of money available for low-in- come housing. He said the "moral and con- versational pressure" on lend- ers includes telegrams sent W e d ne s d a y and a meeting scheduled for late September. Mr. Andras noted that part of. the new outlay by the govern- ment will be directed to build- ers who had earlier applied un- successfully for a share of the special allotment in the CMHC budget of million for spe- cial housing projects. Of 300 ap- plicants, Mr. Andras said, only SO were able to get financing under the program before funds were exhausted.
