By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CPi An Alberta woman who says she was forced to leave her matrimonial home "Without even so much as a spoon" is not entitled to a half-interest in her husband's ranching business, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled Tuesday in a 4-to-l judgment. Irene Florence Murdoch of Nanton. Alta.. sought the half- interest as well as a judicial separation from her husband. Alberta courts awarded her the separation and monthly payments, but denied her claim to an interest in the business which Mrs. Murdoch said she contributed to finan- cially and worked like a man for more than 25 years to help her husband acquire. In arguments heard by the Supreme Court last March. Mrs Murdoch's lawyers said the husband retained the land, larm buildings, machinery, matrimonial home, furniture, car and all revenue from the !arm and cattle Mrs. Murdoch, the lawyers said, "thanks to the husband, was left with a jaw fractured in three places, a cervical collar which she wore about two years, a permanent paralysis to her lip and jaw. in medical expenses and a speech impediment." "She was forced to leave the home without even so much as a spoon." stated her lawyers. JAW FRACTURED The fractured jaw was the result of a light between hus- band and wife and led to their separation. Mr. .1 u s t i c e Ronald Martland. who wrote the ma- jority reasons, said there was no evidence on the findings of the trial judge that Mrs. Mur- doch did contribute towards the purchase of properties. He also noted that the wife was claiming an interest in property other than the matrimonial home. Any claims by a spouse to property other than the matri- monial home must be based on the law of trust, he said. "In the light of the evidence in this case, and the findings of the fial judge, it cannot be said that there was any com- mon intention that the beneficial interest in the property in issue was not to belong solely to the re- spondent husband, in whom the legal estate was vested." said .Judge Martland. Mr. Justice Bora Laskin. disagreeing with the four other judges, noted that the trial judge rejected Mrs. Mur- doch's claim on grounds she made "only a normal con- tribution as wife to the matrimonial regime." This implied Mrs. Murdoch had no foundation upon the breakdown of the marriage to claim an interest in the assets, he said. Judge Laskin then quoted Irom the trial where Mrs. Murdoch was asked the type of work she did on the family properties. Site replied: "Having, raking, swathing, moving, driving trucks, and tractors and teams, quieten- ing horses, taking cattle back and forth to the reserve. dehorning, vaccinating, bran- ding, anything that was to be done. I worked outside with him. just as a man would, anything that was to be done." Judge Laskin said while most cases dealing with divi- sion of property between separated spouses dealt with matrimonial homes only, the law was not limited to that kind of property. "In making the substantial contribution of physical labor. as well as a financial contribu- tion, to the acquisition of suc- cessive properties the wife has, in my view, established a right to an interest which it would be inequitable to deny." said Judge Laskin. "If denied it would result in the unjust enrichment of her husband." he added. "Denial would equate her strenuous labors with mere housekeeping chores" which Knglish courts have held do not support a legal trust in property. On those grounds, said Judge Laskin. Mrs. Murdoch should be granted a property settlement. Police chief given appeal OTTAWA iCPi The Su- preme Court ot Canada has given permission to Jean Jac- ques Saulnier. suspended police chief, to appeal the findings (it a Quebec Police Commission in- quiry which judged him in- competent Mr Saulnier appealed to the Supreme Court after the Quebec Court ol Appeal ruled in June that the police com- missinn inquiry had not .overstepped its jurisdiction in in ruling lie "had neither the competence nor the ap- titude for the post." The police commission in- quiry in 1972. was launched alter published reports dis- closed that Mr. Saulnier had accepted a color television set I rom the owner of a Montreal hotel while he was head of the morality squad. Kvidence at the inquiry showed the set had been deliv- ered to the police officer's home but was returned to the donor after Mr. Saulnier call- ed him several times to re- quest its removal. Saboteur tells of tricks used on Democrats Reluctant witness called BALTIMORE (AP) One of Spiro Agnew's fund-raisers, a reluctant witness forced to testify under immunity, today back before the federal grand jury investigating the vice-president William Muth. a former Democratic Baltimore city councilman now doing publici- lor an engineering firm, de- clined to answer questions last Thursday when the 22- member jury started hearing evidence against Agnew. The jury is investigating al- leged poli'ical corruption in Marvland The Agnew phase ol the investigation centres on allegations ol bribery, extor- lion. conspiracy and tax violations while he was Baltimore County executive and governor during the 1960s. SEE THE LENS THAT DARKENS IN THE SUNLIGHT (VARIGRAY) Agnew has branded as "damned lies" allegations that he received kickbacks, sometimes in the guise of campaign contributions, from contractors doing business with the state. The New York Times says lawyers for Agnew will meet in secret today with U.S. District Judge Walter Hoffman in an effort to set up ,in inquiry into leaks of infor- m a t i on about the i n- vestigation.

DEATHS Helsinki--Paavo Nurmi. 76. the Flying Finn of the athletic tracks between the two world wars who set 28 world records and won seven gold medals in the Olympics of 1920 1924 and 1928 WASHINGTON (AP) Political saboteur Donald Segretti today listed for the Senate Watergate committee the tricks he pulled on Democrats last year and publicly apologized for his ac- tivities. They were "wrong and have no place in the American political system.-" Segretti said. The California lawyer said he was recruited for his trickery by Chapin and Gordon Strachan. former White House aides, and paid a salary of yearly and about S40.000 in expenses by Herbert Kalmbach, President Nixon's one-time personal lawyer. Segretti testified that his activities during the 1972 Florida primary election campaign included distribu- tion of a phoney letter on cam- paign stationery of Senator Kdmund Muskie that accused two other Democratic presidential candidates of sex- ual misconduct. He pleaded guilty in federal court Monday to three mis- demeanor counts in connec- tion with the political sabotage he undertook in the Florida primary. Segretti said in an opening statement to the committee that the letter on the stationery of the Maine senator was his own idea, not prompted by any other per- son. "It was not my desire to have anyone believe the let- ter, but. instead, it was in- tended to create confusion among the various can- didates, Segretti said. He said lie wished "to apolo- gize publicly for this stupid act." Segretti said he recruited assistants around the country to picket various Democratic candidates, "recruit persons to ask hard questions at news conferences and to obtain the travel schedules of the various Democratic can- didates." He asked that the com- mittee not compel him to name publicly all of the people he recruited. "Most of these persons are completely inno- cent of any wrongdoing." Segretti said. Declaring that his activities "have been blown out of all proportion by the news media." Segretti said his pranks included: a letter on Muskie stationery "alleging unauth- orized use of government typewriters by his staff." of stink bombs at a Muskie picnic and at Muskie headquarters in Florida. Placing classified ads asking Muskie if he would "accept a Jewish running mate." a reference to the senator's statement that a black vice-presidential can- d i da t e sh ouId not be nominated by Democrats in 1972. of fliers in- viting the public to a non-exis- tent open house at Muskie's Miami headquarters. of fliers in Milwaukee on April Fool's Day advertising "a free all- you-can-eat lunch with drinks at Hubert Humphrey's head- quarters."

Ga (API V i c e M a y o r M a y n a r d Jackson, bidding to become the first black chief executive in this Southern United States city's history, easily out- distanced 10 rivals to force a runoff election against white i n c u m b e n t M a y or S a m Jackson. :i5. a lawyer, re- ceived 47.041 votes for 47 per cent of the total mayoral vote in Tuesday's municipal elec- tions. His closest rival was Massell. who got only 19.7BO votes. The two will meet Oct. It; in the runoff. "I'm kind of disappointed we did not go over the top tonight." Jackson said after it became apparent he would not receive the 50-per-cent vote necessary to avoid a second election. Race was not a major issue in the campaign, but crime was Jackson, the city's first black vice-mayor, and others blamed a rising crime rate on Massell. and promised to make the city's streets safe. In (lie race for the city's No. 2 position, black civil rights activist llosea Williams ran second in a field of five. He will lace incumbent Alderman Wyche Fowler in the Oct. 16 runoff for the president of the newlv created citv council. Mr. Lang told a news con- ference that the government is looking at other alter- natives to help the meat in- dustry. He said earlier that the Canadian Wheat Board is considering an interim pay- ment on grain deliveries this crop year. HIGHER FEED PRICES Mr. Lang said higher feed grain prices to cattle and hog producers have come because "farmers now understand what their grain is worth." He attributed the increase to the floor price1 set by the Agricultural Products Board, but added the government recognizes the importance of the beef industry The Wheat Board would make supplies of feed grains available in areas of shortage. Mr. Lang said. Other assistances to the beef industry may include higher meat prices to the con- sumer. Mr Lang said con- sumers must realize thai higher meat prices to cover the beet producers cost are a "good tiling." He also said the Canadian Wheat Board is considering an interim payment on grain deliveries this crop year. If an interim payment is made it will probably come after.Ian 1 to move additional farm income into the next tax vear. Mr. Lang speaking follow- ing a tour of the prairies, said farmers can expect a wheat board announcement on the projected linal price lor Durum when the board revises its price projection at the end of this month Mr Lang also said lie is also concerned with problems be- ing faced by hog feeders in western Canada.
