Songstylings by "HELEN" FRIDAY and SATURDAY Aug. 2 and 3 "CROSSROADS" Members and Invited Guests urged to separate himself from the president Vice-President Ford has been the most faithful of Richard Nixon's defenders in recent weeks, repeating at every opportunity his belief in the "innocence" of the presi- dent who has been his per- sonal friend and politically ally for a quarter century Now. by several accounts, the 61-year-old Ford is under pressure from his own ad- visers and from former colleagues in the House of Representatives to stand apart from the national debate over impeachment and prepare himself for an attempt to reunite the country if Nixon is forced from office The vice-president ought to be preaching unity instead of said Senator Robert Byrd the West Virgi- nian whose role as whip for the Democratic majority in the Senate gives him con- siderable clout Bvrd is not the onlv one to have spoken out lately but most of the advice to Ford is being delivered privately through the network of Republican contacts he has built up in 24 years as a con- scientious fence-mending member of Congress from Grand Rapids Mich CURIOUS POST The vice-presidencv in the United States governmental system has always been a curious impotent and lightly- regarded office It becomes even more irrelevant when Congress is involved in the rare process of impeaching a president Normally the vice-president is empowered to preside ceremonially over the deliberations of the the only duty assigned him by the con- stitution apart from standing in the wings waiting to replace a dead or stricken president But when the Senate con- stitutes itself as a court to sit in judgment on the president even the right to preside is denied a vice-president The chief justice of the U S Supreme Court is assigned that role Ford's aides report that the vice-president now is being advised to adapt his behavior in anticipation not only of his constitutional powerlessness during a senate trial of Nixon but also of the need for a respected figure to heal the national wounds after the Senate's verdict is pronounced Ford has been a tireless traveller since he took over the vice-president's office from the discredited Spiro Agnew In the last seven months, as he is given to reminding his audiences he has covered 110000 miles and 38 states, rallying the faithful to a Republican party that has become almost pathetically grateful for every encour- aging word And although he insists that he has "no intention of being a candidate for any political of- fice in 1976 Ford has become a substantial favorite for the Republican presiden- tial nomination two years from now even if Nixon sur- vives his full term There are some indications that Gerald Ford has begun to heed the message of his friends Published reports say he has acknowledged in private conversations that a time will arrive when he must announce publicly that it would not be appropriate for him to com ment further because the congressional jury is sidenng Nixon's case And while Ford was saving in the past that Nixon was in- nocent now he appears to qualih it by expressing the belief that 'the president is innocent of any impeachable offence Still Ford has not entirely given up his active defence of the president The time is not ripe he apparently feels, to join the growing ranks of those who have abandoned the chief executive Welfare student plan revised EDMONTON (CP) The Students Finance Board will, in future make payments to welfare recipients to attend university instead of the department of health and social development, the provincial government an- nounced Wednesday Last November 15 single parents staged a sit-in at a Calgary health and social development office demanding the government clarify its policy for such students J R Drew, the government's program ad- ministrator for public assistance, said the change will not affect the approx- imately 100 welfare recipients now attending university Under previous arrangements one student could be getting all his train- ing at university for nothing through health and social development while another in slightly different circum- stances had to get loans said a spokesman for the students finance board pension if Nixon resigns WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon is eligible for the annual pen- sion paid former presidents of the United States if he resigns, but will lose it if he is impeach- ed by Congress and remov- ed from office, a report of the General Accounting Of- fice (GAO) indicates The report, written without specific mention of Nixon, was prepared at the request of Senator Philip Hart (Dem Mich Clearly, if a president is impeached by the House of Representatives, and con- victed and removed from office by the Senate, he would not be entitled to receive any of the benefits granted to former presidents by (the presidential pension GAO wrote This law provides for former presidents a pen- sion equivalent to the salary of a cabinet officer Currently, this is 000 In addition to the per sonal pension, a GAO spokesman said, an im- peached and convicted president would lose the allowance granted former presidents to maintain and staff an office, a sum that might run close to annually Secret Service protection for former presidents is provided by a different law which does not go into the circumstances under which a president leaves office, GAO said It provides that at the direc- tion of the secretary of the treasury a former presi- dent and his wife are en- titled to lifetime protec- tion Presumably this will apply to Nixon even if he is convicted and removed from office Show Times PARAMOUNT THEATRE Short Subjects 2 15 7 00 9 05 HUCKLEBERRY FINN 2 25 7 10 9 15 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 9 05 FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT
