At the least, it posed a stark contrast to MXUM'S earlier claim that he had no knowledge of a cover-up by anyone at the White certainly not to March 21. And neither did it wash well against his declaration to the House impeachment group that he had given it "the full story of Watergate." As a result, there were immediate defections from even the ranks of his stauncliest House defenders. Four Republicans who led Nixon's fight within the House iiidiciary committee said either they would vote for impeach- ment or were reconsidering their positions. The most significant loss was Representative Charles Wig- gins, i he articulate Southern California lawyer, who had at- tacked the impeachment case, point by point, during the com- mittee hearings. Wiggins called for Nixon's resignation and said that if the president refused to leave office voluntarily, he would vote to impeach him for obstruction of justice. Wiggins' statement appeared to signal the end of any possi- bility of mustering enough votes to block impeachment by the House S'ixou acknowledged as much in his statement: A House vote of impeachment is. as a practical matter, vir- tually a foregone conclusion, and the issue will therefore go to trial in the Senate."

By DAVID MacDONALD Herald London Bureau LONDON The Soviet Union achieved very little for itself in the first stages of the Cyprus peace talks in Geneva and hopes to rectify this in the next stage this week. Soviet sources in Geneva last week were not clear about how they could turn the com- plex Cyprus situation to their advantage but made it clear they were committed to try. One constant aim of Soviet policy both before and since 1917 has been to gain a cor- ridor to the Mediterranean that would give a permanent presence, with bases for its navy. This has been a key point in its Middle East policy, including Soviet anxiety to see the Suez Canal reopened to ease its naval access to the In- dian Ocean.

Five-year-old Tracey Saddleback and four-year-old Earl Saddleback, both of Hobbema, Alta.. drowned Saturday night while swimm- ing in a dugout near their home, about 45 miles south of Edmonton. Harold Bell, 5, of Whitecourt drowned Saturday in the McLeod River near his home, 80 miles northwest of Edmonton. Mary Shelton, 37. of Ed- monton drowned in the Sturgeon River Saturday when she was swimming near Bon Accord, about 10 miles north of Edmonton. In traffic, 17-year-old Leslie Polo of Calgary died in a single vehicle accident Sunday near Longview. about 20 miles south of Calgary. Benjamin Derkson, 23, of Lloydminster was killed near Westlock. about 40 miles northwest of Edmonton, in a single-vehicle mishap Sunday. Eighteen-year-old Randall Scott Welsh of Edmonton died Saturday when the car in which he was a passenger was in collision with the rear of a semi-trailer unit near Chip- man, about 30 miles northeast of Edmonton. Carl Scheie, 60, of Duhemal, Alta.. and Gustave Schfielke, 76, of Bittern Lake, Alta., were killed Saturday in a two- car collision near Camrose, 45 miles southeast of Edmonton. Police said the two men were passengers in separate cars. Thirty-eight-year-old Ray- mond Hagel of the Beiseker district was killed Friday night when his truck collided with an eastbound CNR freight train at an uncontroll- ed level crossing near Strathmore. Dwayne Edwin Brunner, 26, of Fort McMurray died Fri- day when his car overturned near Wandering River, about 150 miles northeast of Edmon- ton.

Moscow's strident support of Makarios gained it some points in the early stages as Washington seemed to be prepared to accept the coup for strategic reasons. The .July 20 Turkish invasion brought tacit approval from Moscow for the aim of restor- ing the island's independence and overthrown government. But while supporting the ceasefire sponsored by the United Nations Security Coun- cil the Soviet Union was caught off balance by the deci- sion of the Greek military jun- ta to hand over to a civilian government instead of going immediately to war with Turkey. Such a war would have suited Moscow implications for the southeastern flank of NATO and it would have been on excellent terms with Turkey, a country it has long courted. Greek diplomats at the Geneva talks said large troop movements were taking place in the Bulgarian frontier region at the point in Thrace where the first Greek-Turkish clash would have taken place. The Soviet Union could have hoped to negotiate a corridor from the Turks in return for applying pressure on the Greek northern frontier. The determination of the new Greek government to get a negotiated settlement on Cyprus averted the war threat and Moscow's hopes of a new accommodation with Ankara faded as fie Soviets called for removal of all foreign troops from Cyprus in a Security Council meeting held as the Geneva 'alks were going on. 26 killed n B.C. THE CANADIAN PRESS British Columbia's first- ever provincial holi- day was marred at least 26 persons died accidentally in the province, a record number for any three-day holiday. Highways were jammed with tourists and residents heading for holiday spots and resort centres were crowded as the province basked in temperatures in the 80s and 90s during the weekend. farm produce prices predicted I necessary changes for the in- creased meter rates.

The increase of industrial milk prices also increased the price of a pound of butter to 85 cents from 77 and the price for a pound of skim milk powder lo 54 cents from 50. Canada bought a lot of butter from Ireland last year, said the minister, but "butter from Ireland if we want to buy it now, would cost us approximately a pound. Last year we bought it for 72 cents a pound. The minister also said that no other country in the world provides for its poor as well as Canada. He said that a Windsor, Ont., family their whole budget and how they lived and they'd spent no more money than they did five years ago on food, and the diet is excellent." He defended the government's policy of ensur- ing an adequate supply of agricultural products and im- proving the return farmers get on their investments, say- ing that farmers are entitled to an 11 per cent return and that Canadians generally never had it so good. I can tell you this, too, that their homes are better; they're painted, their yards are fixed up better; everything is just a little he said.
