A petition calling for a special council meeting has already been signed by six of 12 aldermen, Aid. Harry Huish said Tuesday. Monday night, the labor council, calling the convention centre controversy "out own little asked for a judicial inquiry. Convention centre manager Doug Goadby was fired Jan. 31, on the same day when he called for Mayor Rod Sykes' resignation from the Conven- tion Centre Authority. The authority is made up of the mayor, one alderman and four business community representatives. The background to Mr. Goadby's dismissal has not been officially explained, although a special meeting between city council and the authority was called Feb. 11. However, the Feb. 11 meeting was closed to the news media and two aldermen said after the meeting that only the authority's power to dismiss Mr. Goadby was dis- cussed. A Calgary radio station said Monday it obtained-a secret recording of an authority meeting Jan. 20 on which shared cost payments to Four Seasons Hotel was dis- cussed. And a local newspaper reported Tuesday that at the Jan. 20 meeting, Mr. Goadby said if a proposal by the convention centre's financial consultant Bill Freedman was accepted, the convention centre would only have to pay Four Seasons this year instead of as es- timated by the hotel. Under an agreement signed between Four Seasons and the convention centre located in the same complex the hotel staff would handle convention services for the convention centre. Mr. Goadby told the authority that he approached Four Seasons management in Toronto for the convention centre staff to handle conven- tion services, but this was turned down by Four Seasons, insisting that it would not release the convention centre from the terms of the agree- ment giving the hotel the setting up contract.

Dateline Alberta Dying man leaps to death Split-mill rate case decision is reserved CALGARY (CP) A 69 year old terminal, cancer patient plunged six floors to his death early Monday after smashing out of a window in Holy Cross Hospital, police reported Tuesday. The incident iccured at about a.m. after a nurse saw the man walking in the sixth floor hallway and asked if he needed a shot for pain, police said. He refused, saying he wanted to walk. Shortly afterwards, the nurse heard a loud crash, ran io the window and saw the body on the ground below, said hospital administrator Richard Foreman. Name was not released. Two aecused of trickery EDMONTON (CP) Two men from New York entered pleas of not guilty to charges of theft and conspiracy to commit theft by trickery Tuesday after an emotional appearance in provincial court. Merino Polanco, 32, and Rafael Ortiz, 40, formerly of the Dominican Republic, were remanded to April 9 for trial by judge. The arrests were made after five banks complained that "quick change artists" using sleight of hand and manipulation had confused tellers into giving them money without realizing it during exchanges of currency. Syncrude hiring again EDMONTON (CP) Syncrude Canada Ltd. is ex- panding the construction force at. its oil-sands site north of Fort McMurray in northeastern Alberta. The company expects to regain pre Christmas levels of employment by the end of March, says John Barr, manager of public affairs for Syncrude. There were about per- sons on the Mildred Lake site when Atlantic Richfield Canada Ltd. announced it was pulling out of the project. At present there are about workers at the construc- tion site. Studies are still un- der way to determine how many men will be on the construction project by the end of 1975. Prior to the recent six-week slowdown, the target had been workers by fall. EDMONTON (CP) The appellate division of Alberta Supreme Court has heard testimony and reserved deci- sion on Calgary's 1974 split mill rate bylaw. The case, originally decided last June by a district court judge, was brought to Ed- monton for the appeal hearing Monday. Judge L. S. Turcotte of Lethbridge had quashed the city's 1974 taxing bylaw, say- ing it was illegal because of the makeup of the mill rate. The bylaw provided, that owners of residential property other than single family dwellings mainly apart- ment owners would pay about 34 mills for general municipal purposes, while non residential taxpayers would pay about 21 mills. Provincial law, passed in 1973, gave city councils the power to divide the tax roll into categories but provided that the mill rate on residen- tial property had to be less than that on non residential land. Bill Scott, Calgary city solicitor, argued before the appellate division that the law related to the total mill rate. Candidate GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Gordon Astle, manager of a sign advertising business in Grande Prairie, has been nominated by the Liberal par- ty to contest this seat in the March 26 provincial election. He said when totalled, the rate charged apartment owners was 68.9 mills, com- pared with 83 for non residential land. But R. T. G. McBain, lawyer for the Calgary resi- dent who challenged the bylaw, said the law applied to each of the segments of the total mill rate. Mr. McBain said the city could not charge apartment owners more on any segment of the mill rate than it charged non residen- tial owners. The city had adopted the view that the legislation referred to the entire mill rate, including the 26.9 mill education foundation levy. District Court Judge Tur- cotte, in his decision, said the legislation did not include the school tax, and declared "null and void" the whole taxing bylaw. Mr. Scott, in argument before the appellate division, conceded the ,city was wrong in originally classifying apart- ment buildings with more than four dwelling units as non residential property and thus requiring them to pay the 26.9 mill education foundation levy. Residential property owners are exempt, from that levy. Mr. Scott said council later changed the definitions and brought apartment buildings within the residential category.
