"There should be a royal commission to look at the parole system, day passes and the administration of the he said in a td' ,hone interview from wa Wednesday. "The sy has .failed, obviously we should find out whj Mr. Woolliams cited the release of Philippe Gagnon and figures showing that, six convicted murderers com- mitted crimes while on parole or day passes from federal penitentiaries since 1968. "We have had nine policemen and one prison guard killed in Canada since 1968 and all of the killers in these cases have had their death sentences commuted by cabinet. "This government seems to fear an investigation on the question .of the administration of justice in this country and that is because they have made so many mistakes. POLICE WAR "Police are demoralized, society is demoralized. We are going to see more shootouts because police are fearing their lives and because we seem to be turning to a situation where there is a war against the police in this country and we have to stop it." Meanwhile, Claude Bouchard, vice-chairman of the National Parole Board in Ottawa, said Wednesday that while the board is "concerned about cases like Gagnon, the problem at this stage is a matter for legislators." A Calgary newspaper published confidential parole service documents earlier this month showing that Gagnon had been regarded as a threat to the community before his release from Drumheller Penitentiary. Gagnon killed a detective and wounded six other policemen before he died in a gun battle in Calgary last Dec. 20 a few months after his release. Commenting on The Alber- tan's reports, Mr. Bouchard said 'there is a weakness in the system." "But the blame doesn't rest with the board there are no laws or statutes for us to han- dle this sort of thing." He added that an internal investigation by the parole service in Calgary is con- tinuing. EDMONTON (CP) A Canadian National Railways spokesman said the track at Uncas, 20 miles east of here, has been cleared and was reopened late Wednesday following Tuesday night's derailment and explosion. The derailment involved a 46-car westbound freight which left the tracks and hit a 39-car train waiting on a siding. An empty propane tank car struck the engine of the stationary train and ex- ploded into flames. Two CNR trainmen, Arthur Quivellon and Lloyd Schultz, were recovering Wednesday from shock and second degree burns to their hands and faces as a result of the in- cident. College president dies EDMONTON (CP) Funeral services will be held today for Rev. Roland A. Frantz, president of Concor- dia College in Edmonton for almost 15 years, who died Monday in a city hospital at the age of 58. Pastor Frantz, who had been under treatment for cancer since last fall, sub- mitted his resignation last November as college presi- dent effective June 30, 1975. He planned to remain on the faculty as a professor of religion. MEDICINE HAT (CP) A 21 year old Ontario woman charged with non capital murder in the Aug. 22, 1974, death of a city service station attendant, was found not guil- ty Wednesday by Mr. Justice W. K, Moore of Calgary following a two day trial in Alberta Supreme Court. Catherine Smith of Sudbury, Ont., was acquitted after Mr. Justice Moore said he was not convinced beyond all reasonable doubt she was in- volved either directly or as an abettor in the early morning service station robbery during which a lone attendant was beaten unconscious. The attendant, 17 year old Peter Van Eerde, died from multiple head injuries in Calgary General Hospital later that morning. He had been rushed to Calgary by am- bulance. Debt situation critical EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Power Ltd. now faces distinct financial pressure following a decision -by the Public Utilities Board (PUB) not to allow a 12.75-per-cent interim increase in rates, Ken Biggs, financial vice- president, said Wednesday. PUB rejected the increase on the grounds the utility had not provided full justification for it. "Our debt capacity situa- tion is he said. The situation is made worse by lower than expected 1974 earnings, Mr. Biggs added. Labor force to swell EDMONTON (CP) The local labor force will swell to as much as by 1981, assuming energy related in- dustrial development, a city planning report, released Wednesday, predicts. Based on historical trends, the city's labor force should grow to between and by 1981 but when the impact of projected energy. related industrial growth is calculated, the figures jump to between and the report says. The labor force stood at in 1971. Barry Clark, who headed the study team, warned that making predictions is ex- tremely difficult and projec- tions could be seriouly thrown out by changing world eco- nomic conditions and federal and provincial policies. Indians excluded from jury list EDMONTON (CP) The president of the Calgary Urban Treaty Indian Alliance (CUTIA) Wednesday told Alberta Solicitor General Helen Hunley that urban In- dians are virtually excluded from provincial jury lists. Roy Littlechief said in an interview following a meeting with Miss Hunley during the national conference on native people and the criminal justice system that he told her the'lifestyle of most urban native people them from electoral lists, from which jury lists are drawn. "The DIA (Department of Indian Affairs) admits that urban natives have a 95 per cent unemployment and welfare said Mr. RCMP officers moved Announcement United Motors Co. Ltd.

He previously served in the same capacity in Toronto, for southwestern Ontario. He will be replaced in Toronto by Chief Superinten- dent Henry Peter Tadeson, 50, of Niagara Falls, Ont.

"Even when native people are drawn from the electoral list for jury duty, they usually tiave moved once or twice since the list was drawn up, and nobody tries too hard to find them. "I wanted her to know that what she said earlier about native people being given equal chances for jury duty in Alberta just isn't true because urban native people aren't part of the system. Most don't even register to vote." "The federal governmnet helps us buy a house if we can find for a he said.

Mr. Justice Moore said he felt that a hammer, submitted as an exhibit by the crown, on which blood and two hair fragments were found "ob- viously relates to the death of Van Eerde." He said Smith's testimony that she had no knowledge of a robbery at the service station was corroborated by evidence given by Denommee and Parker, with whom she arriv- ed in Medicine Hat at a.m. Aug. 22 after hitchiking from Swift Current, Sask. REASONABLE DOUBT ''There is no evidence plac- ing the accused, Smith, in the service station at any Mr. Justice Moore said. "The evidence as a whole leaves me with a doubt in my mind as to the guilt of the accused. I have to give her the benefit of that doubt." Smith, who took the stand before a courtroom filled to capacity with spectators, was the last of 25 witnesses to testify and the only witness called by her defence counsel. The judge ordered that evidence given by Parker at a preliminary hearing last November be read 'into the record. Parker, who had been scheduled to appear as a witness in the trial of Smith, was ordered Monday by Mr. Justice Moore to be com- mitted to a hospital for tests after a psychiatrist told the court Parker was mentally ill. Policemen reprimanded CALGARY (CP) Two city police constables were reprimanded by a provincial judge Wednesday for conduct tending to place the police department in a state of dis- respect in the eyes of the public. Constables Bob Denton and Ray Olson were told by Judge Brian Stevenson that their arrest of a Calgary man on a charge of impaired driving July 27, 1974 was unjustified. The judge also found Kenneth Kingsmith innocent of charges of impaired driving and assaulting a police of- ficer. Instead, Judge Stevenson said he "believed totally" that one of the Drinking age bill killed HELENA, Mont. (AP) A .bill which would have ra'sed Montana's legal drinking age to 19 was killed, by one vote in the Senate. That body voted to retain 18 as the age at which a person may purchase and consume alcoholic beverages. Still alive, however, is a companion bill which would place on the 1976 general elec- tion ballot a constitutional amendment raising the drink- ing age to 19. Laurel Democrat Chet Blaylock, who sponsored the bill, said alcohol related problems at high schools have resulted from 18 year olds being allowed to purchase beer and other alcoholic beverages. policemen assaulted Mr. Kingsmith. Mr. Kingsmith told court that he and his wife were driv- ing home after attending a relative's birthday party when they were motioned by a car to pull over to the curb. They did and were confronted by Denton and Olson, both dressed in civilian clothes. Mr. Kingsmith said the car driven by Denton and Olson did not have a red flashing light. Denton asked Mr. Kingsmith to produce his driver's licence but Mr. Kingsmith, whose relative was a policeman, asked to see documentation proving Denton was a policeman. Mr. Kingsmith said Denton used a four letter word and he returned the same word to him. Then Denton struck him, Mr. Kingsmith said, adding that he was told that he would have only been charged with speeding had he not been "so smart."
