Mild, Weather around the World Children withdrawn from school SPEDDEN (CP) Angry parents have withdrawn 63 grade school children from a Vilna school to protest the time it's taking to replace a boiler in the childrens' regular school at Spedden, 80 miles northeast of Edmonton. Ken McGinnis, a spokesman for the parents, said the Spedden school was closed about six weeks ago when a boiler' burst. Since then the students have been bussed to Vilna, eight miles away. But the Vilna school was overcrowded and the gym stage was being used as a classroom, he said. The children had no lockers and no gym facilities. Mr. McGinnis said the boiler should have been replaced by now, and the parents were going to keep their children out of classes until heat was put into the Spedden school. He said a petition has been sent to the County of Smoky Lake and to the deputy minister of education protesting the delay. Walter Cooper, school superintendent, said the boiler has been shipped from Lon- don, Ont., and should arrive soon. It would take 48 hours to install the boiler once it arrived. "I know some of the parents are upset but the school com- mittee is doing everything it can said Mr. Cooper. peratures around the world between midnight and 3 a.m. local times.

Police said the vandals pull- ed telephones from walls in Rosslyn Junior High School, smashed windows, office machinery, a refrigerator and a slide projector, and over- turned bookcases in the library. In the school's science lab, a large turtle was killed when a bar was driven through its back. Gerbils were set free in the room, and fish in the aquarium poisoned by the van- dals who poured glue into the water. NDP candidates named CALGARY (CP) The New Democratic Party nominated candidates for three Calgary constituencies Monday night to have a full slate of candidates in Calgary for the March 26 provincial election. Nominated at a meeting at the Calgary Labor Temple were Maureen McCutcheon, a housewife, for Calgary Egmont; Bill Paterson, a student, for Calgary Glen- more; and Paula Davies, a teacher, for Calgary Buffalo. EDMONTON (CP) A new policy, allowing limited control of predators in fringe forest areas, is being developed by the Alberta government's fish and wildlife branch. Director Gordon Kerr said Monday the policy would replace one first established in 1968 and modified since then. That policy, in general, says wildlife officers will not destroy animals such as wolves which attack domestic animals within the green areas of the province. Mr. Kerr said in the new policy, expected to be presented to the public in several weeks, "we will react to actual damage and try to manage in such a way as to avoid problems without decimating wildlife." Livestock raisers in fringe areas .must realize that wolves are always a threat and they must be prepared to face minimal losses, said Mr. Kerr. The government has an indemnity fund which eases losses and under the new policy the government will step in to make sure losses are kept to a minimum. Plans for the new policy come as ranchers have restated complaints about livestock losses. Fred Herzog, a rancher in the Peace region, says per- sons in his area are "pro wildlife, but we can't have these losses continue." 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX Satellite town planned EDMONTON (CP) A scaled down version of a satellite town on the Stony Plain Indian Reserve west of Edmonton is being prepared after an earlier version died in a jurisdictional snarl. The proposed town of Ketuskeno, a million project of the Enoch Indian Band, was to house about 000 people on leased Indian land about four miles west of the city. The scaled down proposal for a town of about will be presented to band council by a private engineering firm Feb. 27. KKK trial adjourned CALGARY (CP) The trial of the former imperial wizard of the Alberta branch of the Ku Klux Klan charged Convention centre inquiry ordered CALGARY (CP) At- torney General Merv Leitch said Monday night he will order a judicial inquiry into the affairs of the Calgary Convention Centre. He said he will comply with a request by Calgary city council for such an inquiry. 1 City council voted un- animously Monday afternoon for asking the attorney general to order the inquiry. Council defeated a motion to have Doug Goadby, former convention centre manager, reinstated. Council's resolution said it endorsed Mayor Rod Sykes' call Monday morning for an inquiry into the affairs of the convention centre, the con- duct of city employees and council members, and the role of the news media in the controversy. Calgary police last week launched an investigation into the bugging of a Calgary Convention Centre Authority meeting Jan. 20. Mr. Goadby was fired 10 days after the meeting and on the same day when he called for the mayor's resignation from the authority, charged under provincial law with running the centre to benefit the city's social, cultural and commercial life. Man killed at Aldersyde ALDERSYDE (CP) John James Donnelly, 35, of Calgary, was killed Monday afternoon in a two car colli- sion near Aldersyde, 18 miles south of Calgary. with criminal negligence causing death was adjourned in Alberta Supreme Court Monday to the next arraignments April 7.

H. Stewart, chairman of the Peace River Planning Com- 'mission, said Monday. Auxiliary hospitals checked EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Hospital Services Commission is conducting a province wide survey of con- ditions in auxiliary hospitals, Larry Wilson, commissioner of hospitals, said Monday. All 31 auxiliary hospitals in the province are to be visited by commission represen- tatives during a tour which will be completed April 11. He said the charges, imply- ing that planning commissions were fertile ground for graft and kickbacks, bordered on slander. The accusations were made by Gordon Fried, chairman of a local land use advocate com- mittee, at the conclusion of a one-day hearing in Grande Prairie last week. Mr. -Fried said planning commissions should be reduc- ed to a staff of one, to be used only as an adviser when re- quested by elected municipal authorities. But Mr. Stewart said it was unlikely that a member of the commission could become in- volved in underhanded land use dealings. He said in an organization composed of many rural, urban and government agen- cies, it would be virtually im- possible for anyone to influence enough members of the commission to ensure a majority consensus at any meeting.
