(AP) United Stales authorities are trying to extradite a 40-year-old man being held in Nova Scotia on two Canadian murder charges to face a third murder charge in I ho slaving here last month of a retired Oneonta, N.Y., college administrator, the Kenton County prosecutor said Tuesday. Prosecutor John J. O'Hara said extradition processes are being pursued through the U.S. state department in an effort to return James Harris here, where he faces a capital charge of wilful murder in the heating death of Harold Bninc, 69. for- mer associate director of ad- missions at I-Iartwid: College. A Kcnton County judge signed a warrant N'ov. 5 charging Har- ris with Baine's death. Harris was arrested the same clay near Halifax, on a non-capital mur- der charge in a Calgary, Alia., slaying. He later was charged in a Truro. N.S.. death and has since been held by Canadian au- thorities there. Bainc died of hemorrhages from cerebral contusions, O'Hara said. Ill's body was found in a mofcl room. O'Hara declined to speculate on a possi- ble motive and also would not disclose where the alleged mur- der found. EDMONTON (CP) -The first meeting of the Alberta So cial Credit party since it lost power in the Aug. 30 provin- cial election will be a confer- ence of appraisal, party leader Harry Strom said Wednesday "We'll be assessing our posi- tion, reviewing our policies and determining whether these policies are the kind we want for the Uie opposition leader told a news conference, his first in the legislature build- ing since the upset by Peter Lougheed's Progressive Conser- vatives. "It's very important to us because this year we're no longer Uie government." He said his position as Social Credit leader would be up for review at the conference Fri- day and Saturday Nov. 19-20, in Calgary but this did not mean necessarily that he would he replaced. Tile conference will be preceded by a caucus meet- ing. "The leadership is under re- view at every convention. The leadership position is cither confirmed or rejected and if rejected, a leadership con- vention must be called." cnrncizEs TORIES He criticized Uie Conserva- tives for failing to implement some programs promised dur- in the election campaign. It is now very evident that Uie Conservatives don't intend to change Social Credit policies set a while he said. The province's economic situ- ation "is no better cent reports showed unemploy- ment on the Prairies has in- creased "seriously." "I don't see anything positive coming out that indicates they (the government) hove any solution to the problem." Mr. Strom said Premier Lougheed's announcement IJiat he he intends to increase petro- leum royalties could be a de- terrent to further oil industry investment in Alberta. "Even if the royalties were to be doubled" it would not cover costs in many expanding programs "and it would drive tlie oil industry out." The answer, he said, i? to es- tablish spending ticularly in education, health and social development. Still on energy resources, he said a proposed provincial of- fice in Washington to keep tabs on oil markets would be a bad move by the Conservative gov- ernment. Lougheed was likened to child who says "if you don't play marbles my way then I'll take my marbles and go home'' because of his apparent unwill- ingness to co-operate with the federal government. "It's not a good said Mr. Strom, pointing out that his government always had had a policy of consulting Ot- tawa on such matters as cn- ergv resources. ANYTHING BUT DEAD Commenting on a statement by Grant Notley, leader of the provincial New Democratic Party and its only elected mem- ber, that I hi! Social Credit party is "dead in the oppo- sition leader laughed. "We are alive and he said, adding that the Social Credit party had dropped only marginally in the popular vote in the Aug. 30 election while the KDP, despite gaming a seal in the legislature, rnd j dropped "considerably" in the popular vote. "We are still kicking and we are still going to lie around. I'm afraid that they're not in a position to get very far or to talk about another party."
