The jury concluded that Ted Banach, 62, would not have died had he used the seat belt. Banach was killed instantly following a collision between his van and a car.

Police told the inquest that the collision occurred at low speed and Banach's head would not have hit the pavement had he used his seat belt.

'Times in Mountain Daylight Junior citizens cited Southern Station charged EDMONTON (CP) A 13- year-old boy who saved his companion from drowning and other youths who helped save persons threatened by fires and explosions were among 10 Albertans who received awards Friday as junior citizens of the year. Each received a certificate of recognition, plus a savings bond, from Lt.-Gov. Ralph Steinhauer. Dennis Bearchell, 13, of Edmonton was cited for saving the life of a 13-year-old swimming companion. Norman Blake. 13, of Innisfail was cited for rescuing his four brothers when fire broke out at home. Unable to reach emergency services by telephone, he attempted to drive his brothers to the nearest neighbor but the truck became stuck in a snowbank, forcing the children to walk a quarter-mile to safety in their night clothes. Norman carried his six-year-old brother. Bradley Lutz, 9, of Olds saved his six-year-old brother when the child's clothes caught fire.

The commission met to hear the findings of a one-week investigation by its lawyers into the couple's complaint. Hunting appeal mulled EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government still is considering whether to appeal a court ruling that Indians still have the right to hunt without a licence, William Henkel, director of criminal law for the attorney-general's department, said Friday. He said he has been con- sulting lands and forests department officials about the provincial court decision in- volving Indian hunting rights. Judge Alex Shamchuk, earlier in the week at Vegreville, Alta., acquitted Alex Frank, an Indian from Paynton, Sask. of illegally possessing game meat. Mr. Frank was charged when moose that had been shot in Alberta were being transported to Saskatchewan. Judge Shamchuk, in making his ruling, said Indians are not restricted by provincial boun- daries because Parliament has not revoked or altered previous treaties.
