Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LCTHBRIDOE HERALD Monday, DKtmbtr 2, 1974 Agnew's partner says they'll make millions B.C. Socreds start fund to defeat NDP government NIAGARA, Ky. (AP) Spiro Agnew's business partner says the former U.S. vice-president has enough connections for the two to make a fortune. "He's opened up more doors than I said Walter Oil- beck. "There's no doubt our joint venture will make mil- lions. We've already made a helluva lot of money." Dilbeck, an Evansville, Ind., businessman, made the comments in an interview published in Louisville Courier-Journal. He said hiring Agnew "was the best deal I ever made" and predicted the former Maryland governor "will make more money his first year with me than he did in his whole career as a politician... Tory party responsible alternative to NDP gov't There's no doubt about him becoming a millionaire. I ex- pect him to make it himself. He's working for his money." Agnew resigned the vice presidency last year after pleading no contest to income tax evasion. Under the partnership, Agnew will be paid a year for the next four years and one-third of the profits of the partnership this year and one-half the next three years. DEVELOP HOMES Dilbeck said he and Agnew have nearly completed a pair of multi-million-dollar deals KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) Provincial Conservative leader Scott Wallace said Saturday his party can provide a responsible and responsive alternative to the NDP government in British Columbia. He said at the B.C. Progressive Conservative party's annual meeting here that a Conservative govern- ment would repeal some NDP legislation which he called repressive, and would es- tablish a provincial bill of rights. He said the Barrett govern- ment is arrogant and in- competent, while Social Credit is just the same old gang with the same right- wing, extreme ideas and is not an alternative to the NDP. Mr. Wallace said the only Social Credit change has been in the age of the leader and charged that the strings are still being pulled from Ethel Street in Kelowna, a reference to former leader W. A. C. Bennett. Mr. Bennett's son, Bill Bennett, now is the Social Credit leader. Dr. Wallace said: "I think the people of British Columbia are too wise and too sophisticated to be taken in by some of the very simple and superficial measures which the Socreds are trying to take in order to mislead the public into thinking they are a much more moderate political force." He promised a Conservative government would get rid of New Democrat legislation which he said has imposed a lot of needless bureaucracy and interference with in- dividual rights. "I'm thinking for example of this latest super-duper marketing board that's been set up to look after the marketing he said. Freedom for Hess sought BONN (AP) More than persons attended a rally Sunday to demand that former Nazi leader Rudolf Hess be freed from jail in West Berlin by Christmas. The 80-year-old Hess, once a deputy to Adolf Hitler, is serv- ing a life sentence at Spandau prison. Weakened by age and failing health, Hess is the last of the imprisoned Nazi leaders and the only prisoner at the prison, which has a capacity for 600 persons. The United States, Britain and France, as well as West Germany, have favored his parole on financial grounds, but the Soviet Union has staunchly refused to go along. Hess' confinement costs an estimated a year. He is being guarded by soldiers from the four-power victors over Nazi Germany, and his parole requires approval from all four countries. Cheered by supporters in a Bonn auditorium, Hess' son, Wolf Ruediger, said his father's continued imprison- ment was "barbaric." 'HYPOCRITICAL' Former West German justice minister Ewald Bucher, the only prominent political figure at the rally, called Hess' confinement hypocritical in view of acts committed by both sides in Vietnam, the acceptance of Arab guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat at the United Nations and recent executions in Eth- iopia. Dozens of police were sta- tioned outside the auditorium. For a time about 10 protestors circulated in a nearby park and chanted, "Nazis get out of Bonn." Hess has been in custody sir.ce 1941 when he made a selfappointed "peace flight" to Britain in what he said was an effort to stop the Second World War. He was convicted at the Nuerenberg war trials in 1946 of helping Hitler plan a war of aggression and ordered jailed for life. in Kentucky, one for develop- ment of homes and apartments with Mideast oil money and the other Involving sale of a coal mine to Japanese interests. The Agnew-Dilbeck partnership was formed June 30 after Dilbeck arranged a meeting through show business contacts in Palm Springs, Calif., where Agnew was visiting singer Frank Sinatra. Dilbeck said Agnew's con- nections with Mideast oilmen and Republican bankers might prove invaluable. He says he finds no hostility toward his partner despite Ag- new's resignation amid dis- grace. "Everywhere we go people rush up to him asking for Dilbeck said. He said it doesn't bother him that Agnew was accused of taking bribes in sworn af- fidavits but that he gets upset with contractors who gave the money and later testified against Agnew. "I think it's worse to be a squealer than to take a he said. "And I think the American people hate a squealer worse than a taker." VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Social Credit party has put into an election fund to help defeat the New Democratic Party government, Ken Kier- nan, Social Credit vice presi- dent and treasurer said Satur- day. Speaking to delegates at the second day of the party's two day policy convention, he said in his treasurer's report that in the past 15 months the par- ty has received from donations and memberships. Of this, was allocated to the fund which Mr. Kiernan said should be built to not less than He told delegates that ex- penses in the 15-month period amounted to leaving a surplus of The principal from money obtained from life memberships is in a trust ac- count now totalling invested in term deposits from which the interest ear- nings only may be spent, Mr. Kiernan said.
