Alberta Supreme Court Wednesday set -aside an interim injunction which would have barred the Calgary Philharmonic Society from hiring a new conductor: The chief justice had granted the injunction Mon- day oh the application by Norman Brown, one of 30 society members who have petitioned the society for an extraordinary general meeting and an inquiry into the circumstances sur- rounding Maurice Handford's resignation as conductor. Several other key members of the society have resigned in protest of the board's handling of Mr. Handford's resignation. Mr. Handford had CALGARY (CP) Two of the three men charged with the murder of a 16-year-old service station attendant ad- mitted to police that they kill- ed him but added it wasn't planned, the Alberta Supreme Court was told Wednesday. Police Detective Leslie Goetjen read out in court statements made by Lome John Rivett, 19, Myles Gar- field Sartor, 18, and Warren Lee Augustus, 22, all of no fix- ed address, following their arrest. The statements were accepted as evidence by court. Rivett and Sartor were quoted as saying that they would not have killed John Joseph Berze at a Calgary ser- vice station in the early morn- ing hours last Aug. 23 had Berze not turned around to look at his attackers. And a 15-year-old girl, Rivett's girlfriend, told court that Rivett and Sartor took MDA and mescaline a few hours before the service sta1 tion robbery and both were stoned. VICTIM SET UP Tuesday, a 17 year old girl, who had once been engaged to Augustus, testified under the protection of the Canada Evidence Act that she took part in the robbery, masterminded by Augustus. Under the plan, the 17 year old girl, who was Berze's school-mate, would lure Berze, who was alone at the station, into a washroom where Sartor would pose as a drunk and lie on the floor, and Sartor and Rivett would try to tie up Berze for as long as possible while Augustus took the money from the cash register. Rivett told police that he was about to knock Berze un- conscious from behind when Berze looked back. Then they took turns stabbing him. "Sartor started stabbing him all over the Rivett was quoted as saying. "He finally fell down. Then Sartor stabbed him a good one and he lay still." Later, as Sartor wiped blood from his hand, Rivett said, "we just killed a guy for Come to ..Calgary Weekend For Two For One Night Regular Rale I FRIDAY SATUHOAV SUNDAY Children Free Present this coupon upon arrival.

ALBERT (CP) Alberta could have as many as rabid little brown bats during most summers but the majority of them simply get sick and die without causing any problems, a wildlife biologist says. John Gunson, wildlife biologist with the Alberta government, said that under ordinary circumstances, there is no need for any kind of massive extermination campaign. He told the St. Albert and District Fish and Game Association there are about one million little brown bats in the province and about one per cent of them generally have rabies. Other species of bats are less numerous but also can carry rabies. Mr. Gunson said towns like Bashaw have bats in every se- cond house. He said a Red Deer house where people were living produced 200 bats in the attic, 13 of them rabid. An abandoned building con- tained bats. Mr. Gunson said he believes bats are the major carrier of rabies in the province. However, the spread of rabies by bats is generally confined to small animals. He said the last case of a human rabies death in his records involved a small Saskatchewan boy who died about five years ago. Bottles stay on shelves in Montana HELENA, Mont.
