Judge Fred Thurgood dis- missed the charge against Servico Ltd., a Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. subsidiary, after hearing arguments from crown and defence lawyers about the power of govern- ment enacted regulations which control the employment of persons under 18 years of age. The dismissal came during the second day of an Alberta Supreme Court trial into murder charges against three men }n connection with Berze's death last Aug. 23. Servico was charged with failing to comply with regulations in employing Berze between midnight and 6 a.m. from Aug. 3 to 23, without the direct and con- tinuous supervision by an adult. In dismissing the charge, the judge accepted defence lawyer William Braennan's argument that regulations enacted under provisions of the labor act do not necessari- ly form a part of the statute itself. As a result, Judge Thurgood ruled, a breach of the regulations does not necessarily constitute an offence against the act. Crown Prosecutor R. K. Sood said outside the court that an appeal is being con- sidered. OCCUPIES PENINSULA Saudi Arabia, square miles in area, occupies most of the Arabian Peninsula. TOWERING GIFT OFFER! VALUE FREE with Purchase University budget hits million CALGARY (CP) The University of Calgary board of governors approved Tuesday a 1975 76 operating budget of up 19 per cent from last year and a pro- jected decilit of The bulk of the increase, amounting to about million, goes toward paying for the increases in salaries and employee benefits, up 14.7 per cent. However, budget com- mittee officials said there is a "strong possibility" that the deficit will be partially offset in March by an anticipated surplus from last year. The budget calls-for a 30 per cent reduction in adult education extension programs. The budget states the government's 15 per cent increase in extension program grants is insufficient and notes the University of Alberta is able to budget 50 per cent more funds for exten- sion programs due to greater government support. "Unless additional funds are forthcoming from govern- ment to support the extension program in 1975 76, it will be necessary to effect substan- tial increases in tuition fees or alternatively to make serious cutbacks in the present the budget says. The budget says student residence rates, family hous- ing rates and food prices will go up 17 to 25 per cent. The budget anticipates million in government grants, Aberhart bodies may be moved EDMONTON (CP) A daughter of the late William Aberhart, Alberta's first Social Credit premier, says she has given consideration to moving the bodies .of Mr. Aberhart and his wife from Vancouver to Calgary. Mrs. James Cooper said in a telephone interview yesterday from Half Moon Bay, B.C., the idea arose while she was discussing a recently published book about Mr. Aberhart. She said her father, premier from 1935 to 1943, was buried in Vancouver because that was where his wife decided to live so she could be near Mrs. Cooper and another daughter on the west coast. "Mother felt there'd be nobody to look after the grave if my father had been buried in Mrs. Cooper said. She said the Aberharts were buried in bronze caskets so disintergment and transporta- tion of the bodies to Calgary would be possible. She said she would like to get reaction from Albertans to the possibility of moving the bodies back to Alberta. Candidate CALGARY (CP) William Campbell, a 23 year old management consultant, was nominated to'represent the Social Credit party in Calgary Foothills in the next provin- cial election. Mr. Campbell said the tax cuts proposed in the Lougheed government's new budget came "too late" and increas- ed benefits for senior citizens "are not enough." million in student fees, in other revenues, transferred from sur- plus, and transferred from reserves. Meet the Thatchers Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, newly-elected leader of Britain's opposition Conservative party, shares a wave and a smile with her husband Denis, right, and son Mark in London before attending a reception honoring her victory over four male opponents. She is the first woman ever to be elected leader and she would automatically become the first British woman prime minister if the Tories win the next general election due in 1979.
