Calgary crime rate figures old OTTAWA (CP) A com- plaint by Calgary Police Chief Brian Sawyer about the validity of Statistics Canada ures showing the rate of crime in cities is based on an overly simplified view of a complex problem, a spokesman for the statistics bureau said today. Mr. Sawyer had complained about figures which indicated that Calgary has the fourth highest ratio of crimes per 000 population in the country. The spokesman said Mr. Saw- yer was using "rather ancient" figures, saying the statistics for 1971 and 1972 have yet to be re- leased. He.abo said that such figures must be taken in the context of the size of the city, the criteria of what constitutes an offence and the general distribution of crime. Ht said using the rate of crime as an indicator of the in- cidence of crime was "likely to be misleading." The figures quoted by Mr. Sawyer showed that Edmonton had the highest rate with 9.86M ciimes per population, SAND A f GRAVEL 1 ASPHALT TOLLESTRUP 4 SAND AND GRAVEL J Construction Co. Ltd.

Record price PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Pacific northwest white wheat sold for a bushel here, highest cash price in Port- land in 26 years. The price, highest in Portland since January 1947, was des- cribed as phenomenal by Rob- ert E. Menze, merchandise manager for Cargill Inc., one of the biggest wheat buyers in the United States. The official of Che Portland firm tied the gain of 113 cents since Friday to an impetus from the futures market. He said this was linked to world- wide and nationwide demand and did not reflect the expecta- tion of a 10 per cent smaller harvest this year in Oregon and Washington because of re- duced rain during the winter and spring.

He told guests at a plate fund-raising dinner here that the minority Liberal gov- ernment's decision to allow a review of the tax cut next year signals the retuin of "equity, common sense and sound fiscal strategy." The Conservative leader said his party endured pressure from "certain quarters" and won the concession from the government that it really wanted, a commitment that the cuts would not necessarily be- City workers use bicycles come a permanent part of the tax system.

Mr. Stanfield attacked the Turner tax policies and also criticized business and indus- trial interests for urging his party to back down on the issue and vote for the tax cuts. Of Mr. Turner's proposal, Mr. Stanfield said it was "all that we asked him to do.'' He told the audience, mary of them businessmen, that he would "not yield to the pressure of any special interest or any sectional interest in this coun- try. "I didn't come here to be defiant, but I did come here to talk to you frankly." Mr. Stanfield criticized the Canadian Manufacturers Asso- ciation for bringing pressure on him last winter to support the tax-cut legislation. The associ- ation made the appeal in a let- ter that was released to the press before Mr. Stanfield saw it. "As I read the executive mind of the association nothing else counted or mattered other than the tax cuts. he said. 327-2111 IS THE NUMBER OF THE STUDENT MANPOWER CENTRE WHERE STUDENTS SHOULD REGISTER FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYERS CAN HIRE STUDENTS.
