EDMONTON (CP) - Alberta's revenues and expenditures set records dining the 1969-70 fiscal year but the province had a $28-million deficit compared with a $31-million surplus the previous year. C. K. Huckvale, provincial auditor, released the figures Wednesday in his report on the public accounts for the year ended March 31. The deficit was more than $5 million less than estimated when the province brought in the budget early in 1969. Actual revenue for the year was $908.8 million while expenditures totalled $813.7 million. Compared with the previous year revenues increased by $80.4 million, mainly from income tax and from fees and rentals paid by the oil and natural gas industry, while spending increased by $90.5 million. The provincial budget for the year estimated a deficit of $34.1 million.

But revenue on the capital account totalled $44 million compared with the budget estimate of $88 million. The net capital expenditure of $124 million was $32 million more than estimated. Mr. Huckvale said the capital savings came on less-than-esti-mated loans and advances to the universities and the Alberta resources railway corporation and a slowdown in public building construction. He said the estimates for the year also provided for borrowing of $45 million, $25 million by the universities commission and $20 million by the railway corporation.

"Had these borrowings been effected, we would have had a budget surplus of about $17 million." At March 31 this year the province's public debt increased $168 million to a total of $1,278 million. Based on a 1970 population estimate of 1.6 million the public debt for each person in Alberta now is $802 compared with $715 in 1969. Mr. Huckvale said the province's reserve fund at the end of the fiscal year was about $550 million, however a "great portion" of this amount is in long term investments. He said all but about $185 million has been loaned to the Alberta Municipal Finance Corp. which in turn purchases debentures offered by local Alberta municipalities. Consumers Warned About Car Risks WASHINGTON (AP) - The transportation department said Wednesday some four million Ford and Mercury automobiles manufactured between 1965 and 1969 may be hazardous under certain circumstances because of front wheel defects. The United States government's warning on the autos came in a first-of-its-kind consumer protection bulletin from Transportation Secretary John A. Volpe. He said the potential risk is great enough to warn consumers but not enough to call for a recall of the affected models by the Ford Motor Co. The government's warning follows its request for recall in September of 85,000 Ford police vehicles because of what were described as defects in the lower control arm in the front wheels. The same sort of defects were the subject of Wednesday's report. The government warned that the front wheels of the Ford vehicles could collapse without warning after extreme abuse in volving high-speed wheel im pacts- ADVISE CHECK The department advised own ers of the autos to have them checked immediately if they ever suffered impacts so severe as to blow out front tires or dent front wheel rims.

Blight Hits Indiana Corn Crop CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (AP) - Martin Silverthorn pulled an ear of corn from the stalk, peeled back a husk covered by a grey, mouldy powder, and then crushed the kernels and corn cobs in his hand. "That is what the blight has done to us," he said. The Indiana farmer was showing the harm done this year to his 280 acres of corn fields by a black fungus known as the southern corn leaf blight. The U.S. agriculture department says that the blight-damaged crop in the country improved slightly during the final week of September and now is estimated at 4,188,281,000 bushels-about a 13-per-cent decline from the record 4,800 million bushels predicted in July. Agriculture experts are uncertain whether the blight can survive the winter, which would mean more devastating attacks next spring. But a sign of the damage inherent in the blight is an agriculture department bulletin warning farmers to wear breathing masks when working in proximity with it. At the least, the blight means for a farmer such as Silverthorn that "you don't buy that new car next year." NottfJy Predicts More Gains For NDP EDMONTON (CP) - The New Democratic Party's showing in the Nova Scotia election Tuesday marks its re-entry into Maritime politics and will be followed by similar gains in New Brunswick and Newfoundland, Grant Notley, ND? leader in Alberta, said today. In a prepared statement, Mr. Notley said that by electing two members the NDP had acquired an important beachhead in Nova Scotia and probably will hold the balance of power in the provincial legist ture. The Liberals won 22 seats and the Progressive Conservatives 21. Eartha Kilt Smash Hit LONDON (AP) - Eartha Kitt, the sultry American singer, made her debut last night on the English legitimate stage.
