Canmore faces flood CANMORE (CP) Mayor Alfred Miltins Tuesday night declared a local state of local emergency in view of the fact flood waters continued to rise and the Bow River was expected to maintain a peak flow throughout the next week. Meanwhile, Bill Isbester, deputy minister of the department of municipal affairs, said he was waiting for an assessment by provincial environment department officials before joining the mayor in declaring a state of emergency. Dr. Miltins said in an interview about half a dozen families have left their homes in the town 65 miles west of Calgary, since the river began rising during the weekend. .They were not evacuated as such, he added, but "moved on their own." A spokesman for Alberta Disaster Services said no dikes had been breached, but that the soil is "supersaturated" and water is seeping behind the dikes. The water has entered the basements of several homes in this community of about people, and in some it has reached the first-floor level, he added. Farmers losing money on oil wells payments On hot seat Mayor E. A. Toshach of Drum heller, Alta., has been under attack from a city alderman for his testi- mony at a judicial inquiry studying the past operations of the Alberta Housing Corp. A motion demanding the mayor's resignation received no seconder at a city council meeting. WAINWRIGHT (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed was told by an old age pensioner that the compensation paid by oil companies to farmers foroperating oil wells on rich farmland is inadequate and ridiculous. Ivy Taylor, who also is a great grandmother, presented a personrJ brief to Mr. Lougheed who was here for a community luncheon during a cabinet tour of northeastern Alberta. Mrs. Taylor said the unwanted crop of 44 oil wells that occupy 10 per cent of the acre farm operated by her husband is resulting in a crop loss of almost a year. Arguing for amendments to the Surface Rights Act, Mrs. Taylor told the premier that compensaion for crop loss in 1951 was an acre each year and that between 1952 and 1973 the award was reduced to an acre. "This is nothing short of ridiculous, not even being a quarter as much as what we could earn from cropping the- land with either rapeseed, wheat or she said She added that farmers can earn at least an acre from grain crops at current prices. The family's troubles started in 1951 when they decided to object to an oil firm's request for access to their farm for drilling. "My husband loved the land and felt such an intrusion was highly undesireable." The objection was in vain and. since then, the Taylors have lost 43 consecutive fights to block drilling under the Right of Entry Arbitration Act of 1947 The surfacr rights board has given oil companies operators leases on 111.75 areas of the Taylor's land and the equipment and developments make farming with large machinery a "nightmare."

RCMP said the victim was driver of the car New mill rate set by Calgary CALGARY council established a new mill rate after the previous mill rate was ruled illegal by a district court judge. The new rate will have single family homes taxed at 53.9 mills, no change; apartments at 60.6 mills, a reduction of 8.2 mills; and commercial industrial property at 87.5 mills, an increase of 4.5 mills. Council also decided, after a heated debate lasting five hours, to appeal the decision of Judge L. S. Turcotte but only as a matter of principle and as a protest that the provincial legislation in question was not written clearly. Judge Turcotte ruled the city's previous mill rate illegal on the interpretation that provincial legislation states that residential tax must not be higher than commercial industrial tax. The municipal portion of the old apartments rate was 49.4 mills, compared to 36.6 mills for commercial industrial property. The city had held the view that the legislation referred to the entire mill rate and in that case the old apartments tax of 68.9 mills was lower than the old commercial industrial rate of 83 mills but the judge did not accept this interpretation. In the new mill rate, the municipal portion for both apartments and commercial industrial property is set at 4114 mills. The rest of the mill rate is for education. Mayor Rod Sykes wanted council to stand by its previous mill rate and appeal Judge Turcotte's decision, but majority of council, seven to four, voted to take the route of approving a new tax scheme and appealing the decision on the basis of clarifying the legislation involved. Big fire threat over EDMONTON (CP) Alberta forestry officials anticipating cool, wet weather in the northern forests by mid- week, today said the major spring fire threat appears to be over.
