The report was ordered by Police Chief Brian Sawyer after members of the Lucifer's Union Motorcycle Club said police had "harassed" them in their investigation of the fire. Contents of the report, com- piled by Joe Seift, city police internal investigator, have not been released. Roma Leveque, 21, died in hospital a day after the lire broke out on March in an early morning party at the clubhouse. The club filed a formal com- plaint with the police commis- sion last summer. A criminal case against five club members alleging that they caused the fire by violating the provincial Fire Preven- tion Act is still before the courts. Slowdown HORSE CEMETERY PLAN CONSIDERED CALGARY Officiuls of the Calgary Stuinpcde said Thursday they will consider establish- mem of a horse cemetery on the-grounds of the world famous rodeo and exhibition following the death Tues- day of champion rodeo horse Zone Along. Veterinarian Dr. J. W. Moore said the horse died of u sudden infection. The eight year old mare won three major awards during the last two years, including the 1973 Canadian bucking horse of the year. The Stampede's historic committee will discuss the establishment of a special horse cemetery when it meets Feb. 6. A Stampede spokesman said the cemetery would honor champion harness, rodeo and race horses. A harness champion and a thoroughbred are already buried on the grounds of the Stampede but no formal program to honor championship horses has ever been made by the Stampede association. Psychiatric test ordered in beating death case CALGARY (CP) Ronald David Quasi, 19, of Calgary has been ordered to undergo a 30-day psychiatric examina- tion at the Alberta Hospital at Oliver in connection with the beating death of a 19 month old child. Quasi was arrested Jan. 11 after police responded to a child beating complaint in a southwest residential area. A child, Christine Clarke, was taken to hospital suffering from severe injuries sustain- ed from a beating. The girl later died in hospital. Dateline Alberta AHC report submitted EDMONTON A 170- page report oh last year's Alberta Housing Corp. judicial inquiry has gone to Premier Peter Lougheed, says Mr. Justice J. M. Cairns, who conducted the inquiry. Joe Button, government spokesman, said the report will be made public "in a day or two." Mr. Justice Cairns of the Alberta Supreme Court's appellate division in Calgary is not at liberty to reveal the contents of the report. Victim is identified Indian case delayed EDMONTON (CP) Police Thursday released the name of a 66 year old man who died in hospital Wednesday, two days after a mattress fire in his rooming house suite. Dead is David Wilson Walker of Edmonton. Cause of death is uncertain. Police say the victim suffered a heart attack which may have led to the fire caused by a smouldering cigarette. He also suffered smoke inhalation. Gun thief sentenced CALGARY (CP) Legal action against two militant In- dians charged in connection with the occupation of. the Calgary department of Indian Affairs (DIA) office late last year has been delayed for a second time. Milt Harradance, newly appointed lawyer for Roy Littlechief, president of the Calgary Urban Treaty Indian Alliance asked the courts to delay the case because he had just been nam- ed as Littlechief's lawyer. Mr. Littlechief and Ed Burnstick, Canadian national director for the American In- dian Movement (AIM) are hits air Mayor's firms service pay back taxes FORT McMURRAY (CP) One of two scheduled air- lines serving this northeastern Alberta community has withdrawn its 22 passenger aircraft from the Edmonton Fort McMurray route. Mel Zachary Of Slave Lake, owner of Bayview Air Service Ltd., blames cancellation of the five day a week ser- vice on the slowdown by Syncrude Canada Ltd. here. Meanwhile, a' spokesman for Pacific Western Airlines said 117 seat afternoon jets are averaging 18 passengers on afternoon flights, com- pared with '45 before Syncrude's slowdown. The Syncrude consortium has announced it will halt plans for a billion oil ex- traction plant here if it doesn't receive a billion commitment before the end of the month. Nick Devoog of PWA said the situation was "pretty bad" and that a careful look at money losing afternoon flights would be taken at the end of this month. GEESE CONNED Egg-shaped pantyhose holders are placed in the nests of Canada geese by the Nebraska games and parks commission to encourage the birds to lay a second clutch if the first has been destroyed. EDMONTON (CP) Com- panies in which Mayor William Hawrelak has an interest paid about in back property taxes and penalties last Friday and, the mayor said this week, intend to pay 1974 arrears soon. The companies owe about in unpaid taxes and penalties for last year, ac- cording to information available at the city assessors office. The largest single amount is owed by Midcol Developments Co. Ltd. for the Inn On Whyte motor hotel in south Edmonton. Midcol Developments, of which the shareholders are Mayor Hawrelak, P.A. Giannone and Highfield Hotel Co. Ltd., also owes taxes on several other properties. The arrears do not appear to affect Mayor Hawrelak's posi- tion on city council. The sec- tion of the Municipal Govern- ment Act which disqualifies council members from holding office if they owe more than in unpaid taxes appears to apply only to taxes on property held personally by the council member, and ex- cludes any indebtedness for arrears of taxes for the im- mediately preceding year. The assessment rolls in- dicate the mayor has paid the taxes on his personal proper- ty. The arrears only occur on property held by companies in which he is a shareholder. Mayor Hawrelak said yesterday that the non pay- ment of taxes was "an over- sight" and that the money would be paid in "the next day or two." He said payment of proper- ty taxes by his companies was not something he personally looked after, adding that "some of the people we have don't look at the proper things." He also said the city is not losing because of the unpaid taxes. "The city is getting a good interest." The tax arrears on proper- ties held by the mayor's com- panies came to light after Mayor Hawrelak filed a list of his holdings Jan. 14, which includes the names of five companies in which he has an interest. A search of the assessment rolls to determine which properties the com- panies owned revealed details of assessment and taxation. SETTLERS BANNED The English government banned settlement of New- foundland until the beginning of the 19th century, using the island only as a fishing station.

(Jim) Martin Manager Main Branch ROYAL BANK serving Alberta charged with mischief in connection with the two-day occupation late in November. Mr. Littlechief is also charged with common assault in an unrelated incident. The trial was originally postponed-from last Friday so that the courts could hear a defence application that the charges be quashed because of technical errors in the charge. The case was remanded to Feb. 7 for hearing of the application to quash. Bob Young, lawyer representing Mr. Burnstick, said outside the court room that if his application is denied, he will argue that the two leaders had the "color of right" in leading the oc- cupation. The two men are alleged to have led 25 militant young In- dians into the DIA office to protest the treatment of Calgary urban Indians. Mr. ,Harradance said the case has "international ramifications" because of the involvement of the American Indian Movement. The two Indian leaders were the first to be charged in Canada because of militant actions by native people. A dozen native people face charges of obstruction arising from the Parliament Hill riot'involving Indians and police late last year, and charges are apparently pending against some Indian people in Kenora, Ont., because of the armed occupa- tion of a city park last summer. Both lawyers indicated they will call senior civil servants, correspondence, and possibly Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan to testify when the case is heard. If convicted, the two Indian leaders could be jailed for up to six months and fined (500, or both.
