Spoof ad charge dismissed EDMONTON (CP) Charges of counselling the criminal offence of theft, laid against members of an Ed- monton weekly underground newspaper, were dismissed Monday in provincial court. Ross Harvey, Ann Harvey, Morgan Thomas and Kimbell Cariou, all executives of the Harvey G. Thomgirt Publishing Society which publishes the newspaper Poundmaker, were charged in connection with the parody of an anti shoplifting advertise- ment that appeared in the local newspaper and a local news magazine. Pounmaker's spoof adver- tisement contended that profiteering and free enterprise were forms of theft and advised people to shoplift because "it's cheap, convenient and just." Parents blamed for death EDMONTON (CP) A cor- oner's jury Monday said the Sept. 16 drowning of a three year old city girl would not have occurred had there been adequate parental super- vision. The jury ruled during an in- quest that April Dumont was playing with friends along the bank of the North Saskatchewan River about 7 p.m. when she fell and drowned. Detective Ben Hecht testified the girl's friends saw her climb a cement storm sewer. She fell from it into the water. The detective said he con- tacted the children's parents, adding that they did not know where their children were at the time of the accident. Eviction halt suggested EDMONTON (CP) Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp. (CMHC) has asked owners of low income pro- jects in Edmonton to halt any eviction action lintil a new maximum income limit is determined, officials said Monday. The CMHC is considering "new income limits which we believe will provide the necessary relief to tenants who reached the present max- said S. P. Aubrey, director of the CMHC mortgage administration division. Concern had arisen that many residents of low in- come projects might soon be evicted under the current provisions that set maximum incomes for eligibility to live at the projects. UNITED MOTORS CO.

(Times Mountain Farmer doesn't always benefit Agricultural credit situation confusing By JOE MA CALGARY (CP) Govern- ment, financial institutions and the agriculture industry should get together to make farm credit legislation in Canada more rational, says Solomon Sarpkaya of Toronto, economic adviser to the Cana- dian Bankers' Association There are 67 government agencies and loan schemes dealing with agricultural credit, which is confusing not only the fanner but also the banker, he said in an inter- view Monday during the se- cond agricultural credit conference, sponsored by the CBA. Mr. Sarpkaya said politics plays a role in government low-cost loans and guaranteed loan services at the expense of lending institutions and the taxpayer and in some areas of agricultural financing government action has backfired. Earlier Doug McRorie of Winnipeg, direc- tor of agriculture services with the Royal Bank of Canada, told the conference that while low-cost govern- ment loans give the farmer additional sources of credit, the wisdom of subsidizing fanner credit with taxpayer money is'debatable. The federal Farm Credit Corp. charges 9% per cent in- terest and the Alberta Development Corp. seven per cent, compared with 11% per cent, or one per cent above the prime rate, charged by the 10 chartered banks represented by the CBA. "Does it make any more sense for the government to subsidize the cost of money than it does to extend sub- sidies to cover the cost of a farm machine, or a load of fertilizer, or a truckload of Mr. McRorie asked. And the farmer, in the end, does not necessarily benefit from subsidized farm credit, he said, as "land that might command an acre on the basis of 12-per-cent money can suddenly inflate to per acre if eight-per-cent money is available." Mr. McRorie said lending institutions have been penaliz- ed by legislation such as the federal Farm Improve- ment Loans Act, under which lower Jnterest rates are charged for farm credit than the going rate for other business of similar size and risk. hospital for ,000 CALGARY (CP) The head of the psychiatric department at Calgary General Hospital Monday fil- ed a lawsuit against the hospital over his firing by the hospital board of directors because of what the board said were "irreconcilable differences." Dr. Cecil Mickelson was fired last summer and will leave his jqb Thursday. He said earlier Monday he would probably accept a job in On- tario.1 E. H. Knight, administrator .of the General Hospital, said the sum is roughly equivalent to 18 months salary. Mr. Knight declined further comment, saying "the courts will ultimately decide whether there was a case of wrongful dismissal." "It is pretty 'hard to say what the damages will be because no damages have oc- curred he said. LOST CONFIDENCE Dr. Mickelson confirmed Dog owner must move off farm CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Supreme Court has given George Woodward of Disbury, until Nov. 9 to move himself and his estimated 90 cross-bred dogs off a rented farm. Mr. Justice H. J. MacQonald ruled Monday that the 64-year-old self-described dog breeder must vacate the farm owned by Doug Brander. The court also awarded the landlord in back rent as arrears and compensation. Mr. Woodward was evicted. last July 31 because Mr. Brander said the dogs had ruined the small frame house. Mr. Woodward, who was forced to have about 50 dogs destroyed last year at a name near Edmonton, said the pre- sent array of small dogs would also be destroyed since he could not find suitable housing for them and himself. TWO-WEEK REPRIEVE A court appointed lawyer representing Mr. Woodward asked the courts to give Mr. Woodward a six-month delay in obeying the eviction order. When the court refused he asked for a one-month delay, and finally had to settle for a two-week reprieve. The landlord said he wanted to move cattle onto the land but was afraid to because of the presence of the dogs. Mr. Woodward said after his court appearance that be will try to find homes for his mongrel dogs but if be is on- saccessful be will have to have them put away. comments from former board member Ross Alger that the board had lost confidence with him because of differences of opinion over the design of a new psychiatric remand centre planned for the hospital. The board had favored a maximum security, prison- like centre for prisoners awaiting psychiatric ex- aminations ordered by the courts. Dr. Mickelson had opposed that plan and favored a more open environment. He said he cannot agree with the board reasoning for the dismissal because the board never met with him to try to iron-out the differences of opinion. "It is pretty hard to call things irreconcilable if you don't have a chance to talk them he said. "I don't know what these differences could possibly be." A spokesman' for the hospital said the claim has been turned over to the city's legal department, which in turn gave it to an insurance company.
