16 THE LHHBRIOOE HEKAtD Wodncic'ny, 7, 1971 STUCK TO HER GUNS Mabel Christie of Coorlenay jays she's no marlyr, but she completed serving a 14-day sentence rather than pay a fine. Mrs. Christie was convicted in March of violating sections of the land- lord and Tenant Act, which stipulate that eviction notices must be accompanied by a provincial court order slotmg there are valid grounds for eviction. Mrs. Chrislie said Cadet drug case switched to court KINGSTON, Ont. CCP) The case of a Royal Military College cadet charged with possession of drugs was switched today to a civilian court from a standing court martial. Officer Cadet Martin J. Mc- Donald, 21, of Calgary, now will tried in Frontenac County court. No date was set. The switch came st the re- sumption of the court martial adjourned last week, when the presiding officer, Lt.-Col. J. B Fay, reversed a decision he made at that time. Cadet McDonald's civilian counsel, John Hogan of Kings- ton, had made a motion May 25 charging the appearance of bias and argued that the case should not be heard in a military court. He called the timing and public- ity of administrative action taken against the cadet before the trial unfair. McDonald was charged May 12 witli possession of cannahis resin following a raid on 12 rooms at the college barracks. He was one of It officer cadets not allowed to graduate. Six of the cadets were charged under Section 120 of the National Defence Act. Four pleaded guilty in summary hearings before the college com- manding officer, Brig.-Gen. Wil- liam K. Lye. One was acquitted. McDonald is the last cadet fac- ing prosecution. Today. Col. Fay told Mr. Hogan he should consider whether his client would be "better served" by continuing the proceedings in civilian court. After a short recess, Mr. Hogan told the court martial that McDonald preferred civil court action. Uranium rush under way in western Australia By DAVID JENSEN PERTH (Rcuter) A ura- nium rush is under way in Western Australia as prospec- tors hurry to stake claims to promising sites. Hundreds of square miles have been claimed by mining companies and individual pro- spectors since the announce- ment in January of a major strike at Yeelirrie, until then a virtually unknown cattle station about 350 miles northeast of Perth. Government mining offices were inundated with several hundred claims daily until all the promising areas surround- ing Yeelirrie had been taken. TV earth stations sent north OTTAWA ten Remote tel- evision earth stations, designed lo pick up signals from Can- ada's domestic communications satellite, have been shipped to Dawson and Clinton Creek in Hie Yukon Territory, Telesat Canada has announced. The stations join 12 remote television outlets now IwinR set up at Fort Nelson and Cassiar, B.C.; Watson Lake, Whitehorse, Elsa and Faro. Yukon Terri- tory; Pine Point, Kort Smith, Inuvik and Yellow knife, N.W.T.; Churchill, and Uranium City, Sask. These municipalities are among 24 northern communities chosen by the CBC for reception of live television programs using Anik, the first Canadian domestic communications satel- lite, scheduled for launching Nov. 1. Tclcsal, owner of the satellite, says that the remaining 10 re- mote television stations will be shipped during the summer and early fall. The remote television sta- tions, built by Raytheon Canada l.ld. of Waterloo, Ont., arc equipped with 2fi-foot dish an- Itnnas and pro-fabricated equip- ment shelters. Now it has started again. Pro- spectors mining copper about 200 miles north of Yeelirrie say they have found rich uranium 25 feet below Uie surface. ASSAYS HIGH One sample is reported to have assayed 25.5 per cent ura- equivalent of 570 pounds a long ton. Yeelirrie's assays averaged about three pounds a ton. The Jind sent prospectors Hocking to Mundong Well, a re- mote site where a seldom-used water hole was 'the only distill- g u i s h i n g feature in barren, rocky country about 600 miles north of Perth. Slock market reaction was also quick and many small com panies saw their shares move sharply upward alter reports that they had acquired uranium claims. But the Mundong Well find i far from Yeelir rin. where the company In volved spent months cvaluatin claims before Ihe deposit wa announced. FIRST FIND IN 1910 The Yeelirrie find came r years after the mineral wa first recorded in the state o Western Australia. In 1910, government rcpor s noted a small uneconomical de- posit in the Pilbara region, al- ready known for iron ore. Claims have been staked in many other parts of Ihe state since. Small, uneconomical and isolated deposits were also found in the rugged Kimberley region in the far north of West- ern Australia in 1954 after a for- tune was spent on exploration. Quensland and the Northern Territory have sizeable deposits but interest in the mineral is now centred on Western Aus- tralia. Geologists from many foreign and Australian companies have joined the search. Wooteo The Latest in Summer Fashions. Short Sleeve Knits! Men's Golf Shirt Just the right thing for the course.
