(GCOS) said Thursday, that rupture of an oil tran- smission line at House River, 165 miles north of Edmonton, last Dec. 26 was caused by ab- normally high, externally applied stresses. The company said in a prepared statement that the stresses were caused by soil movement believed due to dis- turbances caused by road construction in the area, but engineering tests and soils studies were not yet conclusive. GCOS said pipe making or steel making defects were not involved in the rupture. candidate named STETTLER (CP) William Cook, 60, an assessor with the County of Stettler, has been nominated to contest the Stettler constituency for the New Democratic Party in the March 26 provincial elec- tion.

Application rejected GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) The Grande Prairie Municipal Planning Commis- sion rejected Thursday an application by an Edmonton real estate firm to convert two established apartment buildings into condominium units.

F. Newhouse, registrar of the Alberta Securities Com- mission, was challenged Thursday by a Calgary lawyer on his authority to preside over a commission hearing. At the opening of the hear- ing into the business dealings of Midtown Mortgage and Loans R. T. G. McBain, counsel for the firm, asked commission counsel, Brian Greer, if he had any evidence Mr. Newhouse was. registrar under the act and duly ap- pointed by the commission or by cabinet order. Mr. McBain asked for specific reasons his client was called to the hearing and was told the reason, covered in section 22 of the Mortgage Brokers Regulation Act, was Up to Factory Cash Rebate riAMC Calgary man declared fit CALGARY (CP) A 19 year old Calgary man accus- ed of manslaughter in the beating death of a 19 month old girl has been declared fit to stand trial.

Mr. McBain then requested that the hearing be adjourned but was over ruled by Mr. Newhouse. The Calgary lawyer then asked crown counsel if he was going to produce any com- plainants at the hearing, and was told that only commission investigators would be called as witnesses. Mr. McBain again asked for an adjournment and was refused by Mr. Newhouse. He then threatened to leave the hearing claiming that his client was being denied natural justice. After a lengthy private talk with Mr. Newhouse, both counsel agreed to adjourning the hearing until March 5.

Mr. Justice MacDonald ordered that the face value of a second mortgage loan be reduced to from and the interest rate to 14 per cent from 30Vz per cent. The case was heared under the Un- conscionable Transactions Act. Following the Edmonton hearing Thursday, the staff at the securities commission found a 1957 order in council appointing Mr. Newhouse as registrar of the Alberta Securities Commission.
