Mr. Schmidt said the government has legislative power under the Alberta Energy Act to veto decisions made by the company's ex- ecutive board of direc- tors. "If the provincial govern- ment is sincfe're about not becoming involved in the operation of 'the AEC, ,it should amend the the Social Credit leader said. He was also critical of Mr. Mitchell's statement that the government has no special powers except its majority1 interest in the company. "That is all that is needed to exercise total Mr. Schmidt said.

Company Benefit Program On the Job Training Apply in Person City-starts legal action CALGARY (CP) The city has started legal action to compel developers of Rocky Mountain Plaza, an office building near City Hall, to landscape a parking lot im- mediately north of the building. Frank Byrne, city develop- ment control officer, said Fri- day a summons was delivered to Batoni Bowlen Ltd. this week. He said the document demands the company to live up to a promise it made in 1972. Mr. Byrne said the beautification work was demanded by the city as a con- dition for approval of the Plaza project, but the com- pany went ahead and paved the entire lot without grassy areas this summer. PREMIER LOUGHEED Disqualified man may seek seat EDMONTON (CP) A dis- trict court judge has ended the disqualification of Chuck Knight from the town board effective Oct. 13. The decision, made Friday by Judge William Haddad, means that Mr. Knight will be able to seek a seat on the town council in next Wednesday's election. Mr. Knight, a former-town chairman, was disqualified under a court ruling last week for voting on a matter in which he had a direct pecuniary interest. Provincial law provides for a six year period during which a disqualified person cannot again hold public of- fice, but recent amendments allow a judge to shorten the period of disqualification. EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed said Friday the provincial govern- ment would not 'transfer public lands to the Wesley Band of the' Stoney Indian Tribe without direction from the courts. The announcement followed 'a meeting with Chief John Snow and his legal adviser Rogert Young, and Northern Development .Minister Al Adair. The Alberta government will ask the appellate division of the Supreme Court of Alberta to rule on whether the Alberta government has a legal obligation to transfer any lands to the federal government for the Big Horn Stoneys, Mr. Lougheed said. The band is currently residing on acres of land, west 'of Rocky Mountain House, set aside by the provin- cial government for the use of the Stoneys as a provisional reserve. WANT LAND The Stoneys claim they were not adequately represented at the signing of Treaty No. 7 in 1877, and are asking for full reserve status, including mineral rights on their acres. They also want an additional acres of provincial land to meet federal government obligations to the Indian people. Under the terms of the natural resources transfer agreement of 1930, the province is obliged to transfer unoccupied provincial lands to the federal government to First woman chancellor CALGARY (CP) The ap- pointment of Muriel Kovitz, UNITED MOTORS CO.
