Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April M, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HEHALU Nixon impeachment staff concentrates on main allegations WASHINGTON (AP) -The House of Representatives im- peachment inquiry staff said Thursday it is concentrating its investigation on the major Watergate allegations and President Nixon's tax problems. The staff told the House judiciary committee it is halt- ing its inquiries into 15 of the 56 original allegations against the president. In each of the 15 cases, the staff, said, "either there is no substantial evidence known to the staff that supports an alle- gation of wrongdoing or the evidence is insufficient to justify devoting the resources required to complete a thorough investigation." Chairman Peter Rodino (Dem. N.J.) emphasized, ho.wever, that the final decision on dropping any allegation will be up to committee members. During the 2V2-hour meeting the committee also voted 34 to 4 to give the White House five more days to respond to a sub- poena for tapes of 42 presiden- tial conversations. The White House has until 10 a.m: EST Tuesday to respond. Most of the items set aside are allegations that presidential friends and big campaign contributors received favored treatment from government agencies. Also halted was the investigation of possible impeachable conduct in connection with the president's refusal to spend appropriated funds and his at- tempt to shut down the Office of Economic Opportunity without prior congressional approval'. STILL INVESTIGATING The report said the staff is continuing its investigation of allegations stemming from a campaign contribution from billionaire Howard Hughes, a cash contribution from financier Robert Vesco, contributions from the dairy industry and a pledge from International Telephone and Telegraph Co. (ITT) to help underwrite the 1972 Republican convention. Much of the discussion at the meeting involved the staff's plans to examine allegations that criminal fraud may have been committed in the preparing President Nixon's income tax returns. An allegation resulting from secret U.S. bombing Cambodia between March, 1969, and August, 1973, remains under active consideration at least until next week when the com- mittee hopes to obtain access to a Senate armed services committee report on the bombing. Other issues still under active investigation include: surveillance activities alleged to have been conducted by or at the direction of the White House; intelligence and espionage activities during the 1972 presidential campaign; Watergate break-in and cover-up; that contribu- tions to the president's re- election campaign were given in exchange for ambassadorships; that the White House attempted to use the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to control and retaliate against news media criticism; that the White House attempted to use the IRS to harass political "enemies." Most of the items the com- mittee staff is concentrating on also have been under investigation for months by the special prosecutor's office.

Now it's Arctic pingoes By PETER MICHAELSON OTTAWA (CP) There's the Arctic char and the Arctic hare and now the submarine Arctic pingo. But pingoes, unlike fish or rabbits, appear capable of closing the Northwest Passage to big ships. That's because these submerged cones of ice, coated with frozen muck, might slice open an unsuspecting ship passing overhead. If the ship were a loaded oil tanker, results would be dis- astrous. The U.S. oil tanker Manhat- tan on its first voyage in the Beaufort Sea in 1969 came close to contact with the first submerged pingo ever discovered. Now some experts say big ships like the Manhattan might not be able to sail those .waters safely. The Canadian icebreaker John A. Macdonald, accom- panying the Manhattan, found that the pingo rose to within 53 feet of the surface. The U.S. tanker drew 56 feet of water. Since then, Canadian hy- drographers have found 45 pingoes in the Beaufort Sea, beginning about 25 miles from shore. About feet wide at the base and 100 to 200 feet high, they are formed by frost heave and geological pressure on the sea floor. Pingoes can also be found on land. SHALLOW SHIPS SAFE Two senior officials in the Canadian Hydrographic Ser- vice, G. N. Ewing and H. R. Blandford, say the pingoes are not dangerous for the shallow- draft ships plying Arctic waters now. But if bigger ships plan to go into the Northwest and there are proposals for oil tankers with a draft of 90 feet to carry oil from the Beaufort Sea hydrographic service will have to do more mapping to see if it's feasible, they said in an interview. Navigational charts put out by the hydrographic service carry warnings that undetected pingoes may reduce the depth to about 30 per cent of that shown. The route to the south of the pingo field is considered too shallow for large tankers while the passage to the north might be restricted by heavy ice, and that might mean a route through the field or nothing, Mr. Ewing said. That may be possible if more surveys are done to set out the safest routes. However, concern has been expressed that ships could be- come locked into an ice pack and be dragged across the pingoes. The hydrographers said it was not economically possible to go looking for more pingoes now. NDP couldn't back Tories says Trudeau By DAL WARRINGTON HAMILTON (CP) -David Lewis and his New Democratic Party could not support a Progressive Conservative government for even a short period, Prime Minister Trudeau said Thursday night. "He's against price controls and the Tories want them. I don't see how the NDP could support a Tory government for five minutes." The prime minister said his Liberal government does not plan an election and he does not think the people want one now. If one does come it would be forced on the country by the opposition parties. He made his comment in a television interview as he began a two-day tour through southwestern Ontario. Mr. Trudeau pictured both Mr. Lewis and Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield as being in tricky political posi- tions with both their parties divided on how the country should be governed. TIME RUNNING OUT? He thought Mr. Stanfield is under pressure for an election now because time is running out for him. "I think Mr. Stanfield has to do it now or it may be too late." The prime minister said the Conservative leader has two provincial premiers looking over his shoulder. He did not name them but he apparently was referring to Premiers Pe- ter Lougheed of Alberta and William Davis of Ontario as possible aspirants for national leadership of the Conservative party. Mr. Trudeau reaffirmed his belief that price and wage controls will not work in the long run against soaring inflation. Wire service in French available TORONTO (CP) 'Telegram service in French now is available across Canada, CNCP Telecom- munications announced Thursday. Persons outside Ottawa and the province of Quebec wishing to send a telegram in French can do so by dialing the toll-free number, 1-800- 463-3350 which connects them to the CNCP Tele- communications office at Quebec City. Quebec and Ottawa are not included in the toll-free number service because French services exist there.
