Upper disturbances embedded in the flow are causing bands of clouds ac- companied by periods of light snow to move over the regions. Such a disturbance has now reached Southern Alberta and is responsible for the light snow reported over the Central and Southern regions this morning. Skies are now clear over the northern parts of the district and the clearing will gradually spread southwards behind the upper disturbance later today. However another band of clouds accompanied by snowflurries will enter Northern Alberta and Northeastern British Columbia later this evening and again will move southwards overnight. Hence little change is forecast for Saturday ex- cept for slightly .lower temperatures.

A police spokesman con- firmed yesterday that the con- stable in question left the force on Jan. 6 "for personal reasons" but declined to elaborate. A letter from the Calgary police commission to a city lawyer representing five members of the Lucifer's Union Motorcycle Club charg- ed in connection with the fire says the ex policeman's con- Cancelled under fire EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Liberal leader Nick Taylor said Thursday the Alberta government should demand that contracts ter- minated by the Boeing Com- pany be reinstated. Mr. Taylor, in a news release, said the cancellation of two contracts by Boeing involving components for 707 aircraft resulted in the layoff of more than 160. workers at the Edmonton based Northwest Industries Ltd. Premier Lougheed, whose government owned Pacific Western Airlines recently purchased four Boeing 737 air- craft, should "move im- mediately to have these contracts Mr. Taylor said. The Liberal leader said it did not make sense to buy Boeing aircraft for PWA "on one hand and on the other hand allowing Boeing to not fulfill these contracts." duct was "unbecoming of a police officer." A copy of the letter was ob- tained by The Calgary Herald and published in yesterday's edition. The fire occurred during a party at the Lucifer's Union's Forest Lawn clubhouse, attended by members of the Lucifer's Union and Grim Reapers Motorcycle Club members. Lucifer's Union later charged that police who responded to the fire treated members like "criminals." The police department at first denied charges. In the meantime, five merribers of Lucifer's Union were charged with willfully causing the fire. An .internal investigation, however, was ordered after 16 sworn affidavits were sub- mitted to the police commis- sion claiming police harass- ment that night. Lawyer Marlin Moore, representing the members charged with causing the fire, said the constable who resign- ed was accused by motor- cyclists of "general in- timidating language and con- duct." The commission's letter to Mr. Moore said that while the investigation showed one of the policemen acted wrongly that night, it did not find evidence to implicate the res.t of the police team responding to the call. "The internal police report indicates that the ex con- stable's conduct on the occa- sion of the fire and in related incidents immediately subse- quent thereto was unbecom- ing of a police officer and did little to the credit of the Calgary police service. Candidate LEDUC (CP) Leduc real estate agent Waldo Seimens, 44, won the Social Credit nomination for Wetaskiwin Leduc riding. The nomination "was the 18th for the party in anticipation of the next provincial election.

Wage contract signed EDMONTON (CP) Electrical workers at Ed- monton Telephones have sign- ed a one year contract providing an average 16 per cent wage increase. A joint announcement Thursday by the city and Local 1007 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers said the agreement also provided for im- provements in fringe benefits.

(AP) The Pentagon has ordered the United States Air Force to resume installing the last 50 Minuteman Ills in northcentral 'Montanasilos.

SATURDAY BOMBSHELL Public views sought Rail service loss would hit land use ST. PAUL provin- cial land use forum was told yesterday the loss of rail ser- vice to this northeastern Alberta region would have as dramatic an effect on land use as the opening of railways had. A brief, presented by Ray Pyne of St. Paul, said the Canadian National rail line that extends to this communi- ty and Grand Centre, from Edmonton is under protected status for one year only. Should the line be closed, the most affected commodity would be grain, with alternate shipping patterns in turn influencing land use, Mr. Pyne told the hearing. The land use forum also heard -various briefs on preservation of wildlife habitats, including one suggesting that landowners be paid to retain unimproved land. The hearing, part of an over-all land use study spon- sored by the Alberta government, was the fourth in a series of 17 to be held throughout the province.

(AP) The governing body of the associated students of the University of Montana has cancelled the scheduled March 12 appearance on cam- pus of John W. Dean III. The central board voted 12-7 against allowing the former presidential counsel's speak- ing engagement. The vote came shortly after Dean cancelled an appearance at Illinois State University and four other lectures to return to California to visit his ailing mother in law, who died later. Dave Snyder, director of the program council which scheduled the visit, said students came to him to protest the Dean appearance. "They were really upset about it... they didn't think student money should be spent to make a crook rich." Shootout in 'Calgary has in- vited members of the public to participate in the inquiry. The probe into the gun bat- tle in which Police Detective Boyd Davidson and gunman Philippe Gagnon were killed is being conducted by Police Commissioner John Salus and. retired deputy police chief Gordon Gilkes. Mr. Gilkes said Thursday the inquiry will receive questions and suggestions from interested citizens Saturday, and Monday. SAND gravel ASPHALT ITOLLESTRUPJ I SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co.
