Calgary police to review handling of gun battle EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Public Utilities Board has approved an interim natural gas rate increase which will boost the bill for most customers of Northwestern Utilitites Ltd. from nine to 19 per cent effec- tive Jan. 1. Interim approval was given Tuesday to rate increases which the privately owned St. Paul gets radio permit OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Radio Television Com- mission (CRTC) has granted a broadcasting licence to Roger Charest for an AM radio sta- tion in St. Paul Alta., the com- mission announced today. The new station is to be the first giving local service to the area in northeastern Alberta. Of its 44 hours a week of local programming, 18 hours minimum are to be in French and at least six hours each are to be in Cree and Ukrainian. The licence expires March 31, 1978. Mr Charest of Charest Communications Ltd. also was granted a licence for an English language AM radio station at Westlock, Alta. company applied fortlast August. Although the increase goes into effect next month, it will be subject to a full scale rate hearing by the board. The hearing is scheduled to begin in mid March. A spokesman for Northwestern Utilities said refunds will be made to gas consumers if the hearing finds the new rate level is ex- cessive. Northwestern Utilities said the higher rates are necessary to offset higher operating costs and higher interst rates. The increase also takes into account rising natural gas prices, but this has been largely offset by the provincial government's natural gas rebate scheme. The company estimates the average annual gas bill for Edmonton residential customers will increase 18.5 per cent to from In Sherwood Park, St. Albert, and Fort Saskatchewan, communities to the north and east of Ed- monton, the utility estimates the rates will increase to from per year. In the rural areas surrounding Edmonton, where the municipal tax is not applied, the rate increase will be per year, to from The new rates increase with consumption, and will require the customer to pay a minimum rate of a month for being attached to the pipeline system if they live in Edmonton and the sur- rounding area. It is the first rate increase applied by the company in 15 years. Northwestern utilities serves customers in 150 northern and central Alberta communities. The new rate structure will yield the company more during 1975 than previous rates. The revenue increase is 12 per cent above the million in revenues the company projected under the previous rate structure.

(AP) Authorities say they have identified the real victim of what they say was a murder- for-insurance scheme. Steven Patrick Lewis, 20, of Ridgeway, S.C., was iden- tified late Monday as the man whose body was found in a burned-out automobile Dec.3. Charged with murder earlier in the day were Tommy Lee White, 26; his wife, Ginger, 24; and Charles Painter, all of Lexington County. The Whites are parents of four small children. Sheriff James Metts told re- porters he thinks the alleged scheme may have been mod- elled on a recent Barnaby Jones television program in which a man and his wife picked up a hitch-hiker, killed him and staged a fiery automobile crash in an attempt to collect the hus- band's insurance. Lewis' burned body was found in Mrs. White's wrecked automobile, and it was assum- ed it was that of her husband. The body was buried, but in- vestigating officers became suspicious because ther were no skidmarks at the- wreck scene and the fire apparently THREE DIE IN ATTACK NEW DELHI (CP) Three persons were killed when a score of pro-Chinese Commu- nists attacked a police station in Bhojpur, Bihar state, last Thursday, Indian authorities announced Sunday.

Detective Boyd Davidson was killed and six other police officers were wounded in the two hour Shootout, in which the gun- man, Philipp Gagnon, also died. "We are going to debrief the whole Chief Sawyer said in an inter- view. "We intend to look at every aspect of the in- cident." He-said the purpose of the review is to help police get better equipped to handle an emergency like this and "I have nothing but praise" for the way police handled the situation. "But that doesn't take away from the fact that we have to analyse the entire operation to see if our procedures could be im- proved."
