BANFIELD Rapeseed picture EDMONTON (CP) The National Provincial Parks Association called Monday for a public hearing into the, proposed transfer of acres from Wood Buffalo National Park to Indians at Fort Chipewyan, Alta. The association also called for complete disclosure of government plans for the park, the world's largest. Association spokesman Vern French of Edmonton said he has heard that the department of Indian affairs and northern development, which supervises national parks under Parks Canada, has already approved the transfer. The transfer in- stigated by the federal depart- ment as part payment of a land entitlement totalling 200 acres to the Cree Band granted under an 1899 treaty. EDMONTON (CP) The president of the 1978 Com- monwealth Games, Alex Fallow of Edmonton, Monday resigned from his post because of business pressures. Mr. Fallow apologized'at a hastily organized news con- ference for not being able to complete a job he assumed almost one year ago. However, the former alderman said he just couldn't afford the lime away from his business, Solar Construction Ltd. Library grants announced MEXICO CITY president of the Rapeseed Association of Canada yester- day blamed strikes and world wide inflation for reduced' sales of rapeseed. Speaking prior to the annual meeting of the association, J. J. Banfield of Alta., said labor troubles dealt a severe blow to rapeseed ex- port business during the last three months of 1974. He said the cost in lost sales and damage to the reputation of west coast port facilities in Canada is difficult to assess. He estimated that rapeseed sales to Japan will be down nine million bushels from the previous crop year. In addition, he said, Canada's carryover of rapeseed next July 31 will be close to 20 million bushels, about three times what was forecast earlier. Banfield said inflation is having an even greater effect on what he called the present dismal marketing perfor- mance of rapeseed, with "a persistent lack of demand for Canadian rapeseed and its products during the last two months, not only abroad, but domestically." He told the meeting that some of these developments will have far reaching im- plications for the rapeseed in- dustry, making it necessary to have "intelligent, long range and the establish- ment of realistic objectives for Canadian agricultural production. EDMONTON (CP) One- time grants to upgrade school library and instructional material services in Alberta will be made by March 31, Education Minister Lou Hyndman announced Monday. "Inflation has probably affected the quality of school libraries more than other Mr. Hyndman said in announcing the grants of per pupil in grades one to 12 and per pupil for early- childhood services operators.

Osbourne Brothers Land and Property Ltd. had been charged with the four counts of practicing law without a licence, laid under the Legal Professions Act, arising out of transaction in the spring of 1973.

New department needed MEDICINE HAT (CP) One of three Ontario residents charged with the non capital murder of a Medicine Hat ser- vice station attendant last August yesterday was ordered committed to a hospital for a period not exceeding 60 days to undergo neurological and psychological assessment. Mr. Justice W. K. Moore of Alberta Supreme Court ordered Allan Charles Parker, 19, of Pembroke, Ont., charg- ed with the Aug. 22 murder of Peter Van Eerde, 17, com- mitted after Dr. William G, Gill, a consulting psychiatrist, told the court Parker "suffered from mental il- lness." The application to detain Parker for a period of obser- vation came from his defence counsel after Dr. Gill describ- ed the accused illness as "severe" and said "a period of observation would be most helpful." Ex-premier on the mend VICTORIA (CP) Former British Columbia premier W. A. C. Bennett has'undergone surgery and is in good con- dition, Dr. A. C. Pickles, ex- ecutive director at Royal Jubilee Hospital said yester-. day. Dr. Pickles refused com- ment on the nature of' Mr. Bennett's illness but said it was minor. He said Parker was mental- ly ill to the extent he would be unable "to follow a train of thought taking place in court." Parker was scheduled to appear as a witness during the trial of Catherine Smith, 21, of Sudbury, Ont., also charged with non capital murder in connection with Van Eerde's death. Miss Smith's trial was to begin today. Parker and the third ac- cused, Richard Joseph Denommee, 22, of Brampton, Ont., are scheduled to appear for trial April 14. The two men have, elected trial by judge and jury while Miss Smith has elected trial by judge alone.
