Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednttday, Septtmbor i HE LETHBRIDGE Dateline Alberta Dealer fined EDMONTON (CP) An Edmonton car dealer was fin- ed Tuesday after being found guilty of selling used cars with rolled-back odometres. Provincial Judge Carl H. Rolf levied the fines against Stedelbauer Chevrolet Old- smobile Ltd. after finding the company guilty on eight charges of fraud and one Highway Traffic Act charge of turning back odometres. The car dealer had original- ly been charged with 20 counts of turning back odometres but the crown prosecutor told the court he was calling no evidence on 19 of those charges and they were dis- missed. The car firm had also been originally charged with 10 counts of fraud but only found guilty on eight when the prosecutor called no evidence on two of them. Miners return to work HINTON (CP) Coal miners on strike since May 4 at the Cardinal River coal mine near here returned to work Tuesday after settling their dispute with the com- pany. Mike Tamton, president of Local 1656, United Mine Workers of America, said the men voted to accept a new contract proposal Monday. The new two-year contract is retroactive to January and provides for an increase to an hour from and another raise to an hour by next January for the more than 120 workers, he said. Jobless rate declines EDMONTON (CP) -Alber- ta's unemployment rate in August stood at two per cent of the labor force, down from 2.3 per cent in July and 3.9 per cent one year ago, Labor Minister Bert Hohol said today. He said the rate is second to Saskatchewan's level of 1.6 and compares with a national rate of 4.4. The province's labor force totalled in August, up from in July and 000 a year ago and there were employed test month, an increase of over July. Merger talks under way EDMONTON (CP) The Journal says preliminary dis- cussions are under way aimed at merging the two proposals for major petrochemical developments in Alberta. The newspaper says spokesman for the firms in- volved confirmed Tuesday that preliminary discussions were being held, but declined further comment. The initial proposal by Dow Chemical and Dome Petroleum Ltd. to build a ma- jor ethane extraction plant and ethylene manufacturing facility with twin pipelines has been stalled for months, first by a delay in approval by the National Energy Board and more recently by a federal court ruling. The second proposal, backed by Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd., for a wholly Alberta based petrochemical development, is still in the engineering stage.
