Mr. Mitchell will move to his new position in Edmonton as soon as he has relinquished his present duties as president of Great Plains Development Co. of Canada Ltd. The appointment followed an earlier announcement murder of John Joseph Berze, 16, of ,Calgary, at a city ser- vice station Aug. 23. At the outset of court proceedings Judge F. A. Thurgood ordered a ban on publication of evidence from the hearing. Wednesday by Don Getty, minister responsible for the crown corporation, of a new board of directors. AEC was established earlier this year to give the Alberta public an opportunity to invest directly in oil sands, petrochemicals and other in- dustrial development. Half the stock is to be held by the government, with the other half being offered to the public at a future date. The outgoing board was comprised mostly of civil ser- vants, whom Mr. Getty said had performed "an out- standing job" in guiding the company through the initial period of its formation and operation. The company's main office will be located in Edmonton, with an executive office in Calgary. Mr. Mitchell told a news conference that the AEC "will provide a unique opportunity for citizens to invest in the future development of Alber- "It is my hope that this company, with many investors, will have a positive influence on the way in which society tends to view crown he said.

Mr. Mitchell said he does not visualize AEC as "an enormbus employer of but added that the next three months will largely be taken up with a search for expert personnel in a number of fields. The company was announc- ed initially as a vehicle for provincial government par- ticipation in a billion oil sands project. However, Mr. Mitchell said it could conceivably become involved in projects not directly related to energy. Participation in the oil sands project involves an op- tion for a 20 per cent equity in the plant, as well as total ownership of a million utility plant and a synthetic oil pipeline between Fort McMurray and Edmonton.
