United Airlines, America's largest air carrier, Trans World Airlines and American Airlines filed petitions with the Civil Aeronautics Board which regu- Istes domestic air fares. A husband and wife maxi- mum five-day excursion fare re- quested by TWA would cut their lowest coast-to-coast fares from to round trip. One of the couple, however, must pay the full coach fare. A similar American Airlines plan is only slightly more expensive. TWA plans to offer 25-per-cent reductions to individuals travel- ling during the off-season, from October through May. Although American and TWA plan to offer family and individ- ual fare reductions, United pro- grams apply only to groups of 25 to 154 people. Cranhrook city post declined CRANBROOK (Spec lan- Soheduled to (ill appointment in early August to a newly-es- tablished city hall post, deputy city clerk, Ernest Audette of Provost, Sask., has reconsider- ed and declined the position. It was established to ease duties of administrator city clerk-city treasurer Bland Hoo- ver of some of his exclusive re- sponsibilities as city clerk un- der the Municipal Act. One of these is exclusive rec- ording and certifying of coun- cil meeting minutes which is beyond jurisdiction of an assis- tant city clerk. This latter office is held temporarily by Dennis Bottorff, assisatnt trea- surer, but is not equivalent to the office of deputy clerk. Final city staff vacancy left from tire firing in May of the assistant city clerk, city works foreman and of parks ?nd recreation has been filled on the usual probation- ary basis with appointment of Peter Fanning, reportedly ex- perienced recreational director in other B.C. municipalities. He replaces R. L. DeArmond. Writs claiming damage from Hie cilv for wrongful dismissal were filed in Vancouver regis- try of the Supreme Court late in June on behalf of former city clerk-treasurer-collector G. M. Robertson, former works su- perintendent Emil Erickson, and Mr. DeArmond. Representing the city in de- fending the claims is F. C. Hislop who has filed defence on behalf of the city at the reg- istry. No further progress in process of the claims to a fur- ther stage is expected until at least September.
