University named in lawsuit EDMONTON (CP) The University of Alberta and its former vice president have been named in a civil suit filed in New York. The university and Dr. David Tyndall, now at the University of Nairobi in Kenya, are defendants in a U.S. District Court suit brought by Alfred and Leonard Schlosser of Larchmont, N.Y. Documents filed in the case allege that the Schlossers sold shares of stock in a Denver food company at a cost of a share to Dr. Tyn- dall, whom the plaintiffs claim was the university's investment officer. The plaintiffs also allege Dr. Tyndall, who they say was a director of the food com- pany, knew the stock was worth at least a share and violated U.S. Security and Ex- change Commission regulations by not disclosing his inside information. Dr. Tyndall has filed a general denial to the suit, which claims damages of 800 or a voiding of the stock sale. F. T. Jenner, U of A board of governors chairman, said the university's solicitors are investigating the allegations. Third rent increase in prospect EDMONTON (CP) Some tenants in Edmonton apartments are facing their third rent increase of the year, Mary Harisam, ex- ecutive secretary of the. Landlord and Tenant Advisory Board, said today. The increases have ranged from to a month, she said in an interview. This information will be included m a brief the ad- visory board is submitting to the law reform and research committee studying rental housing in Edmonton. Mrs. Harisam said the brief will include recommendations that the government provide more funds for low-rental un- its. She blamed the rental increases on the apartment shortage in the city caused by a lack of mortgage money for new apartment construction.
