Budget speech awaited B.C. legislature under way VICTORIA (CP) The third session of Hie 29th British Col- umbia legislature opens today with opposition leaders marking time for Premier W. A. C. Ben- nett's budget speech scheduled for Feb. 4. The 72-year-old Social Credit leader's handling of the budget is expected to answer, one way or another, whether the prov- ince will have a general election before the year is out. A budget speech which con- tains an announcement of tax cuts would be ideal to kick off an election campaign and Mr. Bennett Indicated earlier this week there could be tax cuts for Brilish Columbians this year. "If I said no change in taxes before, I withdraw he said. "There will be no increase in taxes." If the premier dips Into the government's huge accumulated surplus to provide a vast array of new programs and benefits, a spring or simmer election could be expected. Judge rules farmer liable in fatal four-car collision EDMONTON (CP) Ewald Wagner, a Leduc area farmer, has been found 75-per-cent li- able for damages resulting from a fatal four-car collision on a section of highway ob- scured by smoke from his field. Mr. Justice A. M. Decbene ruled Wednesday that although Wagner was liable, he was not negligent. Wagner had done his best to extinguish the field fire and could not have foreseen that the fire would flare up and create to dense smoke.

Lome Madu of the Leduc area, one of the other drivers, was found 10-per-cent liable. The judge said Madu should have reduced speed when driv- ing into the smoke.
