The government is endeav- oring constantly to keep CMHC interest rates as low as possible, he said in the Commons in reply to a question from Eldon Woolliams He said in an interview out- side the House that the government plans to keep the rates down on direct loans. Direct loans are given to borrowers in remote areas, people without easy access to other lending organizations. The current rate for various kinds of direct loans is 9.5 per cent, while other lending in- stitutions are giving first mortgages at rates up fo 11 per cent. Diefenbaker in Israel TEL AVIV (AP) John Diefenbaker, former prime minister of Canada, arrived in Israel Wednesday to inaugurate a road in his name. Diefenbaker, 78, accom- panied by a physician, leads a delegation of 51 members of the Canadian Jewish community, most of them from Toronto. Diefenbaker Parkway runs through Canada Park, a acre recreation area and the largest in Israel. Construction of the park in the Jerusalem hills began a year ago with do- nations from Canadian Jews. OTTAWA (CP) Con- servative maverick Jack Hor- ner said Wednesday he dis- agrees fundamentally with his party's major anti-inflation proposals, but does not intend to quit the party. Responding to speculation about his dissatisfaction with Conservative policies, Mr. Homer said in an interview: "I've got the nomination for Crowfoot and I intend to keep it. "I do not intend to sit as an independent or quit the Con- servative party." His basic disagreement with the party is its call for wage and price controls as a major weapon to fight inflation. "I accept the fact that many people feel wage and price controls would be the answer, but I believe that members of Parliament should be better informed. "Wage and price controls would be chaotic in today's society. All the unions are try- ing to catch up to inflation and they'd walk out if there were controls." Mr. Horner would not say if other Conservatives share his feelings. 'NEVER BEEN ALONE' "Let's just say I've never been alone in the party. I've always had friends." Following last month's Con- servative national convention, he said in a television interview that "there's hardly any room for a Westerner in the Conservative party now." His comments Wednesday were not as strong, but Mr. Horner said he is concerned that "the national Conservative party at times takes the western Conservative vote for granted." After being rebuffed by the West in the 1972 election, the governing Liberals were mak- ing a strong bid to appease westerners. To combat this, "we should make sure that western views are known in the Conservative he said. Another source of irritation for him was the growing agreement in the party for the idea of an excess profits tax. "I know some people higher up in the party are leaning to- wards it, but I'd better not go any further than that." He agreed there may be some reaction against him wjthin the party as a result of his public stand against Conservative policy. As for the voters in his southern Alberta constituency, "when I accepted the nomination last time, I told them I didn't support wage and price controls." Re-elected in every federal election since he first won the seat in 1958, Mr. Horner .has been known as a rebel in Con- servative ranks for the last few years. He once gathered a group of Conservative MPs to discuss the leadership of Robert Stanfield and, with some other colleagues, voted against the. party line of supporting bilmgualism in the public service. During the last session, he singlehandedly stopped ap- proval of a Canada Pension Plan amendment that would have exempted certain religious groups from paying into the plan. Other Conservatives sup-' ported the bill, but Mr. Horner, with a large group of Hutterites in his riding, said he does not consider member of the religious sect, good Canadians. He said Wednesday his opposition to wage and price controls is based on a belief they would not work in stemming inflation. "Union wage demands can increase inflation if they exceed productivity, but this inflation was caused by devaluation of the United States currency and our dollar fell, too." Mr. Horner said an excess broke or there are giant profits tax can be justified only if the government is loopholes in the tax laws ONLY 13 DAYS LEFT, TIRED OF TH E MUMBO JUMBO ON YOUR INCOME TAX Taxes are complicated.

Ehrlichman also rejected reports quoting friends Wednesday as saying he had engaged in plea-bargaining with Watergate prosecutors and that he carried a resentment against former White House chief of staff H. R Haldeman. In a statement, Ehrlichman, the former chief domestic affairs adviser to Nixon, said a Los Angeles Times story quoting his friends was "false in tone and content." The Times story, published Wednesday, quoted unnamed friends as saying Ehrlichman had privately expressed dis- appointment with Nixon and that he thought Nixon's effec- tiveness had ended. A friend of Ehrlichman's in- terviewed by the Associated Press Wednesday said Ehrlichman had discussed with prosecutors the terms under which he would plead guilty to a reduced Watergate related charge, but that no agreement was reached.
