Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August LETHBRIDGE Dateline Alberta Free medicare proposed AHC wrong-doing investigation told loan amount not filled in CALGARY (CP) The president of the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology student union said Monday the provincial govern- ment should pay all medicare premiums for post secondary students in Alberta. Art Ewing said in an inter- view he will make the proposal on behalf of a delega- tion of students to the ministers of advanced educa- tion and health within eight weeks. "Both students associations at Mount Royal College and the University of Calgary have said they agree with my he said. "I don't believe the idea is outrageous because the government seems to have a windfall these days, what with buying Pacific Western Airlines and all. EDMONTON (CP) A debenture authorizing the Alberta Housing Corp. (AHC) to borrow million from a German bank in 1969 was sign- ed by the corporation's ex- ecutive director although the amount of the loan in deutschmarks was not filled in, a judicial inquiry was told Monday. Victor Farkas of Montreal, president of Victor Farkas Realty Ltd. and financial broker for the loan, told the inquiry into alleged wrong- doing by AHC officials that he couldn't explain this absence. The debenture indicated that the number of deutschmarks was to yield million in Canadian funds, but the conversion rate from one currency to the other could change every hour, he said. "The conversion could easi- ly be different from 10 o'clock to 11 he told the inquiry under Mr. Justice J M. Cairns of Alberta Supreme Court. In addition, the debenture, signed by AHC director Bob Orysiuk, reached Mr. Farkas Sept. 10 and was dated Sept. 26, testified the broker. The inquiry has been told that the effective rate of in- Police vehicle bombed CALGARY (CP) Calgary police Monday night issued a description of a man wanted in connection with the bomb- ing of a city police car and police substation Monday. Police said the man was seen leaving the scene of the bombing moments after the blast at the forest lawn sub- station shortly after midnight. He was described as about 30 years of age, about six feet tall with short black hair. The suspect was seen removing an attache case or duffel bag from the trunk of his car and placing the bag in the front seat of his vehicle just after the blast. Campfire ban lifted EDMONTON The open campfire restriction which went into effect for the foothills forests of the province last Tuesday has been rescinded. General rains which passed through the province over the weekend have reduced the fire hazard to a low or moderate rating, making the restriction unnecessary. Calgary man killed CALGARY (CP) A 54- year-old Calgary man was killed Monday when his car collided with another vehicle on Highway 2 inside the southern boundaries of the city. Police said Emil Friess of Calgary was killed instantly in the crash when he attempted to make a "U" turn in the middle of the Macleod Trail.

See KEN THOMPSON or KEN DICKSON at GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Coutts Highway Box 1202 Phone 328-1141 BANFF (CP) Two dozen holidaying children had an op- portunity Monday to do what thousands of adult concert- goers have long dreamed of to sit beside an orchestra player and watch him during a concert. Henri Temianka, conductor of the California Chamber Symphony and conductor of the Canadian Chamber Orchestra at the Bajiff Festival, invited the children to the stage at the end of an hour-long special concert. The concert was free to children and by a show of hands most of them aged six to 10 showed they had never seen and heard a live concert orchestra before. The 38-member orchestra was assembled by the School of Fine Arts at the Banff centre after auditions across Canada, and in addition to intensive coaching by Mr. Temianka and others, it is performing for the festival's operas as well as in concert. For the children's concert, the orchestra played a program of short works by classical and contemporary composers Mozart, Dvorak, Debussy, Saint-Saens, Prokoviev and Khatchaturian. There was no attempt to play down to the kids, but Mr. Teoiianka introduced the various sections of the orchestra and had them give brief demonstrations of their range and tone. At the end of the concert, he invited children to go to the stage and sit beside a player of their favorite instrument. to resell PWA VANCOUVER (CP) An Alberta government minister says the provincial govern- ment is prepared to resell Pacific Western Airlines if it is assured the sale will not en- danger Alberta's position as "the gateway to the In an interview with the Vancouver Sun, Donald Getty, Alberta minister for federal and interprovincial affairs, said the government is not committed to controlling the recently-acquired airline indefinitely, although it has made no plans to sell and has had no oilers. "But it was not a complete- ly rigid he said in a telephone interview from Ed- monton. "We're not necessarily committed to keeping it." He said Alberta bought PWA Aug. 1 to forestall poten- tial buyers who may not have been prepared to guarantee to safeguard Alberta's transpor- tation interests. It was estimated that the government will pay million by the time all out- standing shares are bought. Mr. Getty said the govern- ment does not plan to concentrate the airline's ser- vices in British Columbia and has made no plans to transfer staff to Alberta from B.C. PWA president Don Watson said PWA's annual growth rate in B.C. was higher than in Alberta before the B.C. government passed the Min- ing Royalties Act which has sharply increased royalties paid on minerals taken from crown-owned land. EGYPT TO GET LOAN CAIRO (AP) Egypt will get long-term loans totalling million from the World Bank for development and re- construction in the coming five years, the daily Al Akhbar reports Monday. terest on the loan was 10.81 per cent, when money borrow- ed by other government agen- cies cost between eight and nine per cent. Mr. Farkas said that although the agency borrow- ing money normally pays the broker's commission, in this case the Main Bontal Bank of Frankfurt, which made the loan, paid the commission. SHARE DWINDLES He said he received a 000 commission, but after dis- tributing portions to associates, including to E. A. Toschach, mayor of Drumheller, Alta., his share dwindled to Mr. Toshack has testified that he split his with Mr. Orysiuk. Mr. Farkas said he never received a copy of a resolution by the AHC board of directors authorizing the loan. Mr. Justice Cairns elaborated, saying there never was such a resolution, but only a general bylaw after Mr. Orysiuk had committed the AHC to the loan. "He could have borrowed million and put it in his back pocket to be polite and walked off to said Mr. Justice Cairns. "It's unbelievable." Mr. Farkas, outlining the circumstances surrounding the loan, said his firm was looking for investment oppor- tunities outside Quebec when an associate referred him to Mr. Toshach. Mr. Toshach said the AHC was in the market to make a loan, and suggested that Mr. Farkas write Mr. Orysiuk. Any resulting commission was to be split between Mr. Toshach and Mr. Farkas, said the broker NO EXPERIENCE But "I never believed in my wildest imagination that this would lead to a loan of said Mr. Farkas, ex- plaining that his firm had no prior experience in inter- national borrowing. Mr. Farkas said Mr. Orysiuk replied to his inquiry by stating that the AHC was trying to obtain money for housing purposes. The broker then went to Europe, where he ultimately was offered the funds by the Main Bontal Bank. Mr. Farkas said he didn't know that the interest rate on the loan was higher than nor- mal. The Alberta government should have made that judgment, since it was to guarantee the loan, he said. However, Mr. Orysiuk accepted the loan offer. Mr. Farkas also testified that the bank discounted the loan by nine per cent the province received nine per cent less than the million to cover various fees and expenses. 22 DIE IN COLLISION ANKARA, Turkey (AP-) Twenty-two persons were kill- ed and 57 were injured when two passenger buses collided headon Sunday near Gerede, 80 miles east of Istanbul.
