Major increases are propos- ed for the departmental capital budgets for transpor- tation, police and fire services up 126 per cent, 58 per cent and 59 per cent respectively. Finance Commissioner Allan Womack told city coun- cil that the transportation, police and fire departments, planning major equipment purchases this year, would have million, million and million respectively. The council has scheduled a meeting to discuss the capital budget. Feb. 20. The capital budget consists mainly of construction programs financed to a large extent through provincial government loans. It has no effect on this year's property tax. The 1975 mill rate structure will be released when the operating budget is presented March 10. Land needed HIGH LEVEL (CP) More land should be made available for agricultural use along the Rainbow Lake Highway west of this isolated northwestern Alberta settlement, the Alberta land use forum was told here. Joe Steele of the High Level Chamber of Commerce told a public hearing that a serious lack of services, such as feed mills and veterinary services in the area, could be corrected if agricultural land was open- ed up. Dateline Alberta Convictions overturned Would-be homesteaders can't get Alberta land EDMONTON (CP) Four fraud convictions against a house building company, its president, and two salesmen have been overturned by the appellate division of Alberta Supreme Court. Mr. Justice G. H. Allen rul- ed that the trial judge erred in his decision against Zaritec Industries, Ltd. by failing to consider the efforts made by the company's president, John Bury, to keep the firm alive. The trial judge had said the company should have known it could not complete contracts when it accepted in deposits lor four homes. Mr. Justice Allen also said convictions against the two salesmen, Brian Farrell and James Shukin, should be quashed. Mormon church proposed EDMONTON (CP) A recommendation that the next church opened in Fort McMurray be Mormon has been received by the Alberta Housing Corp The recommendation was made by the Alberta Inter- Church Planning Association, which represents 23 member denominations in the province. The group was formed in January to unify the churches' voice in dealings with developers and governments. The association's secretary, Harold Black of Namao United Church, said the AHC isn't obliged to accept the ad- vice of the inter-faith body. Plant decision deferred EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board has deferred a decision on a small gas-processing plant proposed for Bear Lake, about 15 miles northeast of Edson. The board urged Sun Oil Ltd. to examine alternative sites because of possible en- vironmental damage to the lake, used for recreational purposes. The board also said gas dis- coveries in the area would suggest that a larger gas plant, south of Bear Lake, would be more centrally located to gas development in the area. Hen agencies defended EDMONTON (CP) A poultry marketing official says poultry producers were subjected "daily and even hourly" to price fluctuations before the establishment of marketing boards. Murray Brown, chairman of the National Turkey Marketing Agency, told the annual poultry industry conference that poultry prices were at the whim of the before marketing agencies were formed. "Producers had no choice but to take it or leave it, and a lot of people chose to leave the industry." EDMONTON (CP) A spokesman for the Alberta lands and forests department says a group of Ontario residents who wish to homestead in the Peace River region fail to meet provincial residency requirements. E. C. Wyldman, special assistant to department minister Allan Warrack, also said the would be settlers would face difficulty in ob- taining grazing rights on land. About two months ago, a party of 20 families from Kleinburg, Ont., announced plans to journey West by covered wagon in April to set- tle in northwestern Alberta. Mr. Wyldman said an appli- cant for a homestead on Alberta public land must have lived in ,the province for at least 12 months in the three years immediately preceding the application.

(AP) The rate of flu-related deaths in the United States remained above the epidemic level this week for the fifth straight week, the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) reported Friday. The CDC said an epidemic is when actual deaths exceed by 50 the norms set by the centre based on figures of previous years. Most new cases occurred in the mid-Atlantic, South Atlan- tic and Pacific regions, the CDC said.

Special thanks to The Lethbridge Herald for arranging the banquet everything was so nice. MORRIS, DIANE A LAN! DMYTRYSHYN EDMONTON (CP) The president of the Metis Association of Alberta has demanded a public inquiry into the operations of Canative Housing Corp., a native housing project facing possible liquidation; Stan Daniels, one of four company shareholders, has Red Deer may get big project EDMONTON (CP) -There are many indications that a petrochemical project is being planned by Alberta Gas Ethylene Ltd. (AGEL) and Dow Chemical of Canada Ltd. for the Red Deer area, Social Credit House leader Bob Clark said Thurs- day. But "for some mysterious reason the government is holding back its an- nouncement" of the joint ven- ture, he said in an interview after, unsuccessfully pressing the government in the legislature for information. Mr. Clark said outside the House that industrial and residential land in the Red Deer area was being purchased. AGEL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co., has publicly indicated it would es- tablish at Red Deer. AGEL is expected to guarantee Dow an ethylene supply from its plant in return for Dow abandoning its proposal to build a world- scale petrochemicals plant at Fort Saskatchewan, Mr. Clark said. So instead of AGEL and Dow building separate, mul- timillion dollar projects, they would combine in developing one ethylene bas- ed petrochemical industry with Dow constructing a derivative plant to manufac- ture additional products from ethylene, the chemical building block of the plastics industry. "I have a feeling that AGEL has already worked out the ac- cord with the Mr. Clark said. Industry Minister Fred Peacock refused to confirm the statements in the House. urged urban Affairs Minister Barnett Danson and William Teron, president of Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. for immediate ac- tion to ease the problems of Canative tentants faced with possible eviction. He said rents, which have increased three times in the last year, are likely to force many native families on the street before liquidation takes place. The Metis leader also called for a court order freezing assets of Canative' 'to prevent liquidation or rent and for an interim operating board to manage Canative un- til its affairs have been straightened out. The other three company shareholders have joined in an attempt to either keep Canative a private company or liquidate it if CMHC con- tinues its opposition to private ownership: Mr. Daniels has previously urged association or society status for Canative. CMHC of- ficials have said such a con- stitution might bail the com- pany out of its operating problems. Lack of operating funds has forced Canative's executive committee to raise rents to maintain cash flow, Mr. Daniels said.

He said there was "little chance" of someone from put- side the province being successful in a competition for homestead rights in the Peace River district. Mr. Wyldman also said that although there are no residency requirements for grazing rights on public land, applicants must be financially stable and have experience in the livestock industry. He said the department has talked to the Ontario group several times "to try to point out the realities" of settle- ment in that area. Dr. Warrack said in an earlier statement the Ontario group faced "needless hardship and disappointment" unless given the facts about the status of land in that region.
