(AHC) inquiry Tuesday that he received as a personal loan from Ed Achtem, an Ed- monton lawyer acting as an AHC agent. Tony Melvm, who sold a piece of land in the Mill Woods subdivision to the AHC through Mr. Achtem, denied that he insisted on the money as a favor from the lawyer Mr. Achtem has testified that Mr. Melvin "bugged" him for a payment UIC payments are higher OTTAWA (CP) Unemployment insurance benefits paid in July totalled million, up eight per cent from June payments, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday. The average weekly pay- ment of in July was six- tenths of one per cent less than the June average of The July total was 10 per cent higher than the amount paid out last July.

Mr. Achtem said he gave Mr Melvin to "get him off my back But Mr. Melvin testified that if he bugged Mr. Achtem he was "only joking" and he had no basis on which to insist that the money be paid. Mr. Melvin said he original- ly intended to repay the which he used to help finance an acreage, but when he found out that Mr Achtem had deducted it as an expense from his income tax he decid- ed to wait. Under questioning by the AHC solicitor, Mr. Melvin ad- mitted that he needed about more than the for his acreage, and said he intended to get the additional funds from the bank. He testified that he couldn't say why he didn't just get the entire amount from the bank Frank Lieber, a partner in the law firm Lieber, Koch and Achtem now Lieber, Koch and Co testified Tuesday that Mr. Melvin and an associate came to the firm in 1969 with an option on the Mill Woods piece of land. Although Mr Achtem's position as an AHC land assembly agent was confiden- tial at this time, Mr. Lieber said he knew Mr Achtem was interested in the land and made an acceptable offer for it Mr. Lieber said his com- pany was known to have had extensive dealings in land. Anthony Koch, the other partner, testified that Mr. Achtem paid the company 000 he owed in expenses and outstanding dispersements. Mr Achtem has indicated that he paid but, said com- mission counsel Rod McLen- na, has not explained what it was for. Mr. Koch said the law firm twice had insufficient funds in its general account, once for and once for and the shortages were traced to Mr. Achtem's failure to contribute towards office overhead and other expenses. Mr Koch also confirmed prior testimony that a commission cheque from the AHC to Mr Achtem was paid to the law firm's trust account because Mr Achtem alone had no signing authority. E B Emmelkamp, an ANC accountant, testified Tuesday that he received from Mr Achtem for extra time he spent working on the cor- poration's books. Kenneth Samis, co-owner of another parcel of Mill Woods land, told the inquiry how he negotiated with Mr. Achtem to sell the parcel for an acre He said he had known Mr. Achtem's parents for 40 years and the lawyer referred to the family connection when negotiating the sale. Lawrence Pastuzik, a prin- cipal in Lornex Development, explained how the agency handled a transaction in which Bear River Development Corp sold land in Grande Prairie to the AHC. He said Lornex persuaded Bear River to invest in the land and then negotiated the sale to the AHC However, he denied that any money was paid to Bob Orysiuk, former AHC executive director, in connection with the sale Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE Multicocal Lens (MULTILUX) INSTALLATION HUMIDIFIERS K- O 1709 2nd Ave. South Phone 328-5873 TOMORROW REPEAT OF A SELLOUT FALL AND WINTER SALE TOMORROW SHELDON'S 12- HOUR SALE 19A.M.
