(CP) Mary Schur, a Lacombe coun- ty school bus driver charged with driving through a level railway crossing under unsafe conditions, was tined in provincial court Thursday. She was charged after she drove the bus, carrying 13 children, through the crossing moments before a train passed. Evidence indicated that she did not stop the bus at the crossing before proceeding. Several families refused to allow their children to ride the bus to school after the charge was laid May 13. Mrs. Schur was temporarily removed from her job at the time of the incident. County commissioner Roy Robbins says no decision has been made yet regarding her future as a bus driver. on Russell's campaign EDMONTON (CP) Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell told the Alberta Housing Corp. (AHC) inquiry Thursday that a partner in the company the AHC hired in 1972 as planning consultant for Fort McMurray worked on his 1967 election campaign. Mr. Russell, who serves as chairman of the AHC board, testified that Martin Cohos, a principal in Cohos, Evamy and Partners, served on an ad- visory committee during the campaign. Asked about Mr. Cohos' in- volvement in his 1971 cam- paign, Mr. Russell said "if he played a role it was very minor putting up lawn signs or something." However, Mr. Russell said it was logical that architects should help with his cam- paigns because he himself was an architect. He said he was "absolutely" satisfied that the appointment of Cohos, Evamy and Partners had nothing to do with political con- siderations. Commission counsel Rod McLennan noted that the minutes of an AHC board meeting, which stated that Mr. Russell recommended the hiring of the Cohos firm, were amended at a subsequent meeting to delete reference to any recommendation. Mr. Russell said he had not made the recommendation and, as chairman of the board, had no power to make recommendations or vote. This was corroborated by Christine Perks, a Calgary architect and AHC board member, who said Mr. Russell "didn't recommend anybody" but only made a few general remarks to the board. Mrs. Perks said she and Bob Alderman grilled at probe EDMONTON (CP) Alderman Una Evans was subjected to detailed cross examination on the subject of contributions made to her various political campaigns at a judicial inquiry Thursday into alleged wrongdoings at city hall. Under questioning by W. A. McGillivray, lawyer for city land developers Raphael and Eskandar Ghermezian, Aid. Evans said the law firm of Miller, Witten, Pakarsky and Vogel had contributed to her 1972 federal campaign. It was revealed Wednesday that the firm of Western Real- ty Ltd. had contributed to the same campaign. The inquiry was prompted by an alderman's disclosure of an alleged gift offered by the Ghermezians! Mr. McGillivray suggested the Western Realty donation represented a larger expen- diture than what the Ghermezians had spent in entertaining local businessmen, according to previous testimony at the in- quiry. ON THEIR TEAM Aid. Evans replied she wouldn't know about that, not knowing the tastes of either the Ghermezians or the aldermen. Referring to a meeting she had late in 1972 with Ghermezian brothers at city hall. Aid. Evans said conver- sation turned to federal politics, after discussion of the brothers' rezoning application for a project in the Dickensfield area of Edmon- ton. Mr. McGillivray asked if, after telling the Ghermezians she supported the principle of their application, she con- sidered herself "on their team." Aid. Evans said her view- point on the rezoning coincid- ed with the developers' Governor posts bond for illegal shooting desires, but this did not con- stitute being "on their team." She also said she could not recall making any suggestion that the Ghermezians attempt to establish themselves with a federal political party in order to be successful in their business. Under repeated cross- examination, Aid. Evans said she "found it strange" that Aid. Ron Hayter flew back from South America to vote on the rezoning bylaw, and then returned to that con- tinent. SOUGHT ADVICE Aid. Hayter testified that Eskandar Ghermezian came to city hall in 1973 to seek his advice on the location of what was to become the Westgate Shopping Centre. The meeting was "short and Aid. Hayter said. Mr. Ghermezian referred to an area of land in the West Jasper Place outline plan and asked: "Would this be a good place for a shopping said it would be a dandy for a shopping centre." Mr. Hayter testified. The meeting then ended. Orysiuk, at the time AHC director, drew up a list oi possible engineering and planning consultants for Fort McMurray, an oil sands boom town 250 miles northeast of Edmonton. Cohos Evamy was first on the list because they would emphasize the architectural, rather than the engineering, aspect of Fort McMurray development and the AHC was "concerned that planning might be done by the location of sewers" rather than by human considerations. At this point, Mr. Justice J. M. Cairns of Alberta Supreme Court, who is presiding over the inquiry, interjected: "You were an architect and knew something; Mr. Orysiuk was not an architect and from what I gather knew nothing. Why was he consulted" in drawing up the list' Mrs. Perks said he was in- volved because of his role as executive director. Mr. McLennan noted that the minutes of another AHC board meeting showed Cohos Evamy's assignment was broadened from one section of the town to planning the entire community. Mrs. Perks said the com- pany made a presentation to the board citing the necessity of an over-all approach and "opened the eyes of the board to what was happening in Fort McMurray." She also said that the ap- pointment of Cohos, Evamy was made on the basis of qualifications and merit, not on the basis of extraneous political considerations.

A Missoula County justice of the peace said Thursday he might suspend the hunting and fishing privileges of Governor Thomas L.

Saskatchewan and federal governments to jointly fund construction of a permanent weir in the Peace-Athabasca Delta. The weir is intended to restore water levels in the delta to those experienced before the W. A. C. Bennett Dam is British Columbia began operations in 1967. Environment Minister W. J. Yurko said Alberta will pay 45 per cent of the estimated million cost of the weir, with the federal government contributing 50 per cent and Saskatchewan five per cent.

INVESTIGATES CHARGES SAN JOSE lAPD Costa Rica's government said Thursday it is investigating charges that millionaire Robert Vcsco has secretly im- ported weapons into the country from the United Stales A U.S. Senate sabcom- maUee has heard testimony 1haJ cartons apparently con- teffling weapons were smug- gled in April from Los Angeles Jo Costa Rica, where they wore unloaded by persons employed by Vesco. He told CosHa Rica's government the gun-running allegations were Before dam construction, annual spring flooding made the delta highly productive for wildlife. However, grass meadows dried out and pond levels were reduced when the Bennett Dam began storing peak flows from the Peace River. A joint study by the three governments in 1970 warned that continued low water levels would do "irreversible harm" to the delta, and recommended a weir be built to restore natural water con- ditions as closely as possible.

Speaking at the installation of the university's president and chancellor. Mr. Lougheed said expanded research holds "potentials for all of us." par- ticularly in the physical sciences.

However, he said it may be "a number of years" before new areas of expansion are in operation.
