Housing takes leap in February OTTAWA (CP) - Housing starts in urban centres during February increased 35.5 per cent over the February, 1970, figure, the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. announced Friday. Starts this February totalled 6,980; last February they totalled 5,183 Units. Seasonally adjusted starts in all areas were up from an annual rate of 185,000 units in January to 210,900 units in February. The rise in housing activity is attributed to a substantial in-crease in privately-financed starts and a moderate increase in CMHC-financed starts. Multiple starts, which rose 49.7 per cent, accounted for most of the gain, while single-detached dwellings rose 4.1 per cent.

Replying in the legislature to Neville Roper (SC - Ponoka), Mr. Clark said the new school act, passed at the 1970 session, set the school leaving age "and at this time I don't plan to introduce any legislation to change it." Mr. Roper said Hutterite Brethren remove their children from school at the age of 15 and wondered what action the government is planning. An interim report by the Worth Commission on Educational Planning recommended that the leaving age be lowered to 14. Disqualified councillors will appeal WINNIPEG (CP) - Three North Kildonan councillors, who were disqualified from office when they were found guilty of a breach of the Municipal Act in provincial magistrate's court, announced they will appeal the conviction to a higher court. The three councillors. - Barry Filbert, Charles Barry and Leo Rougeau - made known their intentions after a meeting with Premier Ed Schreyer and Municipal Affairs Minister Howard Pawley. The councillors were found guilty of unlawfully approving payment of $160 to Mr. Filbert for loss of income while he attended a municipal convention in Halifax last summer. The men were fined a minimum $25 each. Daniel Haughton, and Prime Minister Edward Heath, Defence Secretary Lord Carring-ton and Aviation Minister Frederick Corfield. Haughton, now back in New York, was due to begin a round of consultations on the British offer with five United States airlines that have contracted to buy the TriStars. He also will confer with Lockheed's bankers and with the U.S. government. EQUAL PARTNERS A broad outline of the British offer: -Formation of a new company, comprising the British government and Lockheed as two equal partners, to develop and produce the RB-211s. Britain would put up the first $144 million-with Lockheed contributing any more money that may be needed. The $144 million starting contribution was based on Lockheed's own estimate of what completion of the RB-211 project ought to cost if properly managed. -The price of the finished engines to be bought by Lockheed will be negotiated. On the basis of British estimates the ultimate cost for each engine is likely to be in the neighborhood of $1.2 million. The original contract price was $840,000. -�Britain would provide a guarantee to stay on in the projected partnership for me entire life of the engine and its spares -but would require a cross-warranty that Lockheed will do the same. -Lockheed would be expected to waive its penalty claims on the Rolls-Royce company for Me deliveries. These claims are estimated by Rolls-Royce at about $120 million. Haughton appeared to be attracted by the British offer, British government officials said. But he was reported to have said his company would find it difficult at this time to raise new funds for the joint enterprise. And he was said to have foreseen difficulties in providing the cross-guarantee. Fined $21,500 in tax fraud EDMONTON (CP) - Lawrence Picbe and a company in which he was a director were fined a total of $21,500 here on seven income tax charges against himself and the company. Evidence showed L and E Holdings Ltd., formerly Larry's Trailer Sales, had evaded paying more than $47,000 taxes on income of more than $138,000. As well, Piche was charged with five counts of filing false income tax returns.

Open High Low Close Mar 33.25A 33.25N May 32.00 32.00A 32.00A Jly 31.25N 31.25A OTTAWA (CP) - Fisheries Minister Jack Davis said Friday the Athabasca Delta might be saved from drying out if the British Columbia government would flood it once a year from the lake behind the W. A. C. Bennett Dam on the Peace River. But even with yearly flooding, a dam controlling the water level in Lake Athabasca could wreak environmental havoc. Mr. Davis, who is to be head of the government's proposed department of the environment, told the Canadian Wildlife Federation that the Bennett dam coupled with too little precipitation have dangerously lowered water levels in the delta.

But a better solution would be to flood the delta once a year, thus approximating natural conditions which have created the area's diverse and abundant wildlife. A plan to dam and control the level of Lake Athabasca could, however, result in- year-round flooding of the delta, a situation which would harm wildlife as much as the drying up of the delta. Many Indians live on hunting and trapping in the delta and fishing on Lake Athabasca, tod all these activities may be endangered by the Bennett dam, City of guns DETROIT (AP) - In the first 63 days of this year, a record 132 persons were slain in this city-most of them by gunfire at the hands of friends or family members, rather than in street crimes. By police estimate, Detroit residents possess as many as 500,000 handguns, the bulk of them illegally. Potato futures WINNIPEG (CP)-The Maritime potato futures market was inaactive Friday.
