Nick Gass, president of Local 38 of the Alberta Teachers Association, said after the vote that Calgary public teachers are concerned about the length of time the negotiations are taking.

Charge thrown out EDMONTON (CP) A charge under the Securities Act of Alberta against a local real estate firm has been dis- missed in court.

Judge Brian Stevenson granted a request for Lapish and Ogilvie to get a new lawyer and rescheduled the trial for Dec 19.

EDMONTON (CP) Alberta's major car insurance companies are considering applying for rate increases only a matter of months after the last increase. Spokesmen for the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) and Co-Operative Insurance Ser- vices said yesterday that increasing numbers of claims, higher labor rates and higher personal injury settlements have forced.them to consider applying to Alberta's Rate Review Board for the right to charge higher premiums. A 15-per-cent premium increase was granted Aug. 1, following approval of a number of companies' applications to the Alberta Automobile Insurance Board. George MacDonald, ex- ecutive vice president of the AMA, said "the total inflation picture is catching up with the insurance industry." He said body shop rates have jumped to an hour from and the company was faced with heavy un- derwriting costs. C. J. Brennan, manager of Co-Op's general insurance division in Regina, said his company would make a deci- sion by the end of the year whether or not to apply for a rate increase. He said the cost of the average claim handled by Co- Op has gone up substantially and the company was "ex! periencing some losses at present." A survey of several in- surance companies in Ed- monton showed rate increases of between 14 and 47 per cent in the last nine months for a married, 23-year-old driver with public liability and deductible collision coverage with theft and fire as specified perils. Election guessing game swings into high gear EDMONTON (CP) An early start to the spring ses- sion of the Alberta legislature indicates the Progressive Conservative government is planning a spring election, op- position spokesmen say. The legislature resumes its work Jan. 23 and Grant Notley, provincial NDP leader, said he expects a late April election. By the time the Conser- vatives hold their annual convention in March, the house should have gone SO DID LIVING COSTS The average size of in- dividual savings accounts in Canada increased consistently from in 1935 to in 1974. through most of the es- timates, he said. Premier Peter Lougheed will likely announce the elec- tion at the convention, he said. Bob Clark, Social Credit house leader, said if the budget is introduced in February the election might be held as early as March. May or June are still possibilities, he added. The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE Breath-analysis test unsuitable CALGARY (CP) A Calgary district court judge has ruled that a breath analysis solution tested by RCMP crime laboratories in Edmonton could not be used as sufficient evidence to con- vict drinking drivers. Judge E. R. Tavender, in an appeal case judgment that is binding on all provincial judges in Alberta, agreed yesterday with the appeal lawyer that insufficient testing was done on the solu- tion called "certified breathalyzer solution control No. 21." John MacPherson, lawyer for Garry Richards who was fined in provincial court Aug. 12 for exceeding the allowable blood alcohol limit, said the solution should be rul- ed unsuitable to sustain a con- viction under the federal criminal code. The judge ruled in MacPherson's favor after Donna Anne Diagneau, an analyst at the RCMP laboratory, testified that she only tested eight out of ampoules. One ampoule is used in each police breath analysis A sampling of 30 ampoules out of every is required It was not told in court how many drivers in Alberta have been convicted for impaired driving or exceeding the blood alcohol limit on this solution.

The report of the Suffield evaluation committee, releas- ed by Minerals Minister Bill Dickie, said Suffield's reserves contain 2.724 trillion cubic feet of gas. A 1972 forecast said there would be slightly more than four trillion cubic feet of gas in the Suffield block. The lower current estimate reflects disappointing test results in the Medicine Hat block formation, where reserves now appear 25 per cent less than originally forecast.
