Three boys and three girls were bom by caesarian section to Susan Rosenkowits at Mowbray Maternity Hospital after a nine-moith pregnancy. They ranged in weight frtnn 2Vii to 4^ pounds. Mrs. Rosenkowitz and her businessman husband, Colin, have two other children, a six-year-old daughter and a two-year-old son.

EDMONTON (CP) - The Journal said Friday it has learned that Wayne Minion, 45, the Alberta government’s recently - appointed energy expert, will be appointed chairman of the new Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission.

The Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission, created under the petrolenm marketing act which was passed by the legislature in December, will be the sole B.C. education chief to meet Barrett VICTORIA (CP) - John Bremer, British Columbia’s education commissioner, criticized Thursday by Premier Dave Barrett as “a bit of a flop,” said Friday he will attempt to meet the premier for an explanation. “I’m really in a very embarrassing position,” he told a reporter during a break in the hearings of his commission on the question of university government, which opened Friday at the University of Victoria. Mr, Bremer, appointed education commissioner last February on a three - year -$28,000 - a - year contract, was supposed to revamp the province’s educatlffli system. Among his controversial projects was paying seven teenagers $70 a we^ plus expenses to study forming a secondary school student . alliance to promote a “democratic” school system. Another of his proposals was to abolish compulsory school attendance. Mr Bremer holds graduate degrees from Cambridge University and the University of Leicester, and has received numerous awards and honors.

The head of a major United States public company points to the “fallen image” of business In the eyes of the public. The energy situation has served to make things worse. Legislators are being besieged by constituents distrustful of the oil companies and their part in the so-called crisis. "They think this thing is contrived, and they’re really frustrated and upset,” says Congressman Silvio Conte, a Republican    from Massachusetts. llte Nixon administration admits it has come to a point where it will have to do its own audit of the oil industry to find out what is going on. William Simon, the U.S. energy chief, has ordered an audit of the price, profit and supply records of every U.S. oil refinery. GOOD FOR PROFITS The oil crisis has been bad West premiers will confer EDMONTON (CP) - A western premiers’ economic conference will be held in Saskatoon Feb. 27 and 28, a spokesman for Premier Peter Lougheed’s office said Friday. The conference has been shuffled around the calender because of the first ministers’ energy conference in Ottawa Jan. 22 and 23. The four western premiers will discuss energy, transportation and other economic issues, the spokesman said. FORM JOINT VENTURE TORONTO (CP) -Barringer Research L^. and Anglo American Corp. of Canada Ltd. have agrm in principle to form a joint company to use Barringer’s alr^ borne biochemical exploration system. for everybody except the oil business. Thirty-one U.S. oil companies raked in |6.4 billion In net profits for the first nine months of 1973, an Increase of 47 per cent compared with the similar 1972 period. Most of the profits came from overseas operations. This year the picture is radically changed, with the big profits being made at home. A recent analysis d(nie by two leading economists concludes that the over-all jump in petroleum cash flow in 1974 In the U.S. could total $13 billion, or almost triple the present domestic earnings. Stanley Goodman, chairman of the Mays Department Stores Co., one of the country’s largest chains, told retailers in a remarkably candid speech this week that American business has fallen into wide disrepute mainly because the public has come to distrust the profit motive. He said “the appalling drop in the reputation of business in our lifetime is a fact and it is disturbii^ and dangerous." He cited recent consunoer surveys and his own knowledge of current public attitudes of the "fallen image” of business. "What is wrong is more than the rejection of the establishment,” he said. “Unfortunately, this imai of business as a bad guy who against good things now Is intensified by the great trauma of Watergate and I shudder to think what a public opinion survey taken now would score on business motives and integrity.” Hill and Knowlton Inc.. a top international public relations firm, found in its surv^ of U.S. business and financial editors, that nearly 40 per cent believe that in 1974 uuniness will have less credibility than It did in 1973. - Fewer than 20 per cent of the editors felt credibility improved in 1973. Reasons cited for the decline included the surge in profits during 1973, unwillingness on the part of business to make sacrifices, the troubles of some pohtical figures, and the illegal political campaign contributions issue.
