Chartered Accountant Exam Results Released 

John Ewart Collins, Calgary, led the group of Alberta candidates who wrote this year's final examination for chartered accountancy, winning the gold medal and $25 prize awarded by the Alberta Institute to the student achieving the highest standing. Results released by the institute's council show that David Cameron Christison of Calgary won the intermediate prize and George Foster Johnson, Red Deer, won the prize in the primary examination.
MR. COLLINS is the son of the late J. Ewart Collins, former partner in the firm of Collins and Collins, chartered accountants. He served his term of articles with the firm of Collins and Hames, Calgary. Mr. Christison is serving articles with the firm of Morton and Hills and previously attended Col. Walker junior high school and Crescent Heights school. Mr. Johnson is articled with the firm of M. F. Mackenzie and Co. in Red Deer, having previously attended high school in Drumheller. Forty-two students were successful in the final examination.
"WITH MORE than 90 per cent of Canadian public companies having their financial statements audited by chartered accountants, the results of the annual examinations should be of considerable interest," said Eric Connelly, president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta and treasurer of Mannix Ltd.
"Chartered accountants now occupy a position of the utmost importance in the economy of the country. It is not too bold to say that our whole financial structure rests firmly on the skill, independence and integrity of our profession. We advise companies both large and small on cost accounting, taxation, and other vital financial problems, in addition to matters of managerial and administrative concern. There is no profession today which has as great a knowledge of business generally in relation to the country's economy as ours".
