OTTAWA (CP) Man- power Minister Robert Andras and Finance Minister John Turner washed their hands of blame Monday in the Commons as opposition MPs pressed for an inquiry into allegations of political intervention in the Local In- itiatives Program. The allegations received some credence last week when Tom Cossitt tabled a memo to Mr. Andras from a former manpower deputy minister which said "no project is approved without concurrence of a regional minister." But Mr. Andras, under ques- tioning from Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield and Mr. Cossitt, maintained that no minister had been given authority to veto or approve projects except himself. In a surprising move, Mr. Turner rose and said that he had never intervened per- sonally in a LIP grant. No one had mentioned Mr. Turner in questioning. As the attention of opposi- tion MPs turned to Mr. Turner, Mr. Stanfield noted that no one had made ac- cusations against the finance minister. "Since it is the hour of the true confession, perhaps the other ministers should get up- Mr. Stanfield added. Mr. Turner said Leeds was a riding for which he had "some responsibility" and noted that it received more in LIP money than his own Ottawa-Carleton. Last week, Mr. Cossitt tabl- ed letters and memos in th? Commons which he said show- ed Mr. Andras had misled MPs in denying there were political considerations in the LIP program. Among them was a letter from former environment minister Jack Davis identify- ing himself as the "regional minister" who approved programs for British Colum- bia. Mr. Davis asked that his office clear all B.C. projects. Mr. Stanfield raised the question again Monday by asking treasury board presi- dent Jean Chretien if there will be an inquiry into the program. Mexican guerrilla chieftain killed MEXICO CITY (AP) A five-month search by troops has ended with the death of guerrilla chieftain Lucio Cabanas in a battle in the mountains of southern Mexico The army said 10 other guerrillas died with Cabanas Monday; another 17 were kill- ed in a Shootout Saturday, and two soldiers were killed and five were wounded. i about 36, had be- come Latin America's best- known guerrilla since the death of Che Guevara. Thin, swarthy, with dark hair and dark eyes, the former Grade 6 teacher in a village north of Acapulco became a follower of another teacher-turned- rebel, Genaro Vazquez Rojas, in 1967. He took over the band when Vazquez died in an automobile accident in 1972. He published a manifesto saying he sought a "socialist government" for Mexico, and claimed his guer- rilla war in the Sierra Madre del Sur was a continuation of the 1910 peasant uprising led by Emiliano Zapata, who was betrayed and killed by the ar- my. Nixon may have to answer lawyers' written queries WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. District Judge John Sirica proposed today that written questions be sub- mitted to former president Richard Nixon in lieu of hav- ing him testify at the Wa- tergate cover-up trial. Safe Driving Week toll reaches 8 THE CANADIAN PRESS British Columbia reported the only traffic death across Canada Monday, the second day of Safe Driving Week, bringing the two day total to eight. Last year, 78 persons died on Canadian roads during the seven day period. Provincial totals to date with last year's total for the week: Dec. 1 2'74'73 Nfld 0005 P.E.I. 0000 N.S. 1012 N.B. 0001 Que. 1 0 1 15 Ont. 1 0 1 36 Man. 0004 Sask. 0001 Alta. 4046 B.C. 1126 Total 8 1 9 76 Sirica opened the day's court session by asking lawyers for the five defen- dants whether they had any objection to his asking the doctors who examined Nixon last week whether the former president is well enough to answer written questions. The court-appointed group of three doctors had reported that Nixon would not be well enough to appear even at a question-and-answer session in his home in California until Jan. 6. That would be well beyond the expected conclu- sion of the trial. None of the lawyers had any objection to making an in- quiry of the doctors and Sirica sent his law clerk to make contact with Dr. Charles Huf- nagal, the chairman of the group But chief prosecutor James Neal expressed reservations about allowing Nixon to answer written questions, saying "we have had a number of statements about Watergate from the former president, none of which was satisfactory." He did not, however, ex- press any opposition to calling the doctors. Nixon has been subpoenaed by John Ehrlichman, one of the defendants. Ehrlichman's lawyer suggested Monday allowing the jury a long Christmas recess with their families in order to delay the end of the trial long enough to obtain Nixon's testimony. survives Jupiter's radiation MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) Pioneer 11 is Saturn- bound after surviving Jupiter's deadliest radiation and sending new information on the giant planet to scien- tists on earth. The nuclear-powered un- manned spacecraft zipped past boiling, gaseous Jupiter at a.m. EST Monday, making its closest approach just miles above the cloud tops at the South Pole. It then raced around the planet and up its face at 000 miles an miles faster than any man- made object has ever flown. U.S. scientists threw up their hands in relief when they received a signal from the spacecraft confirming it had survived its encounter with Jupiter. The signal came a little more than an hour after scien- tists lost contact with the spacecraft when it made a planned duck behind Jupiter during the period of the most searing radiation. "All systems in the space- craft are apparently operating normally." scientists said. Contact was lost just as Jupiter was spewing out its most serious high-energy electrons and protons. Dr. John Wolfe, Pioneer project scientist, said Pioneer 11 measured one-half the electrons he had expected, based on readings from Pioneer 10 when it came within miles of the planet a year ago. But Pioneer 11 was bombarded by more protons. The spacecraft departed the planet's dangerous radiation belt and, using Jupiter's gra- vitational pull as a slingshot, headed for Saturn, a journey of three billion miles from earth. The trip will take the spacecraft 100 million miles above earth's orbital plane and higher than any spacecraft has ever flown. OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren Allmand said Monday that evidence he has on hand shows no indication of corruption or bribery involv- ing the Seafarers Inter- national Union or a federal cabinet minister. Mr. Allmand told reporters that he got from the RCMP a transcript of a telephone con- versation between Labor Minister John Munro and Roman Gralewicz, president of the SIU. "There is nothing to in- dicate any kind of corruption or any kind of the minister told reporters out- side the Commons. 6 Arms pact allows build-up' WASHINGTON (AP) The new U.S.-Soviet strategic arms agreement allows both countries to continue costly nuclear weapons buildups over the next decade, Presi- dent Ford has acknowledged. In a news conference Mon- day night, Ford said the ac- cord, worked out last week in Russia with Soviet Com- munist party leader Leonid Brezhnev, allows each country long-range mis- siles and bombers. Of that quota, both countries can place multiple independently targetable warheads (MIRVs) on missiles. Although the president said this agreement "put a cap on the arms he described a situation in which both coun- tries have great flexibility in increasing the number of MIRV missiles as well as the size and lifting power of each missile. For instance, the Soviet Union has about long- range missiles, none of which is believed to carry multiple warheads. Moscow can and is expected to install MIRV warheads on up to the missile limit. The United States already has 822 of its offensive missile force carrying multi- ple warheads. THEY GAVE Following is a list of those who have contributed to the Cup of Milk Fund. Mrs Anne Fahselt.

McLean, Lethbridge 15.00 Anonymous...............15.00 The statement comes after Morton Shulman, New Demo- crat member of the Ontario legislature from Toronto High Park, said he will read in the legislature parts of a transcript of a police-taped conversation between Mr. Munro and an SIU agent. He said this will buttress his charges. He has said the SIU made campaign donations to the Liberal party, paid bribes to federal Liberals and federal public servants and that the union is rife with terror. There is no indication of whether the transcript of the telephone conversation ac- quired by the RCMP from either the Toronto city police or the Ontario Provincial Allmand was not sure the transcript mentioned by Mr. Shulman are the same. But he said there is no "ho- key pokey" indicated on the transcript he has. The minister said the way the Toronto Star mentioned a tape in a Saturday story was "McCarthyism at its worst" because it gave no indication of the contents of the tape. This is a reference to the anti- Communist witch-hunts of 'U.S Senator Joseph McCarthy 20 years ago. The Star said it had learned that tapes of a legally author- ized Metropolitan Toronto police intelligence unit wiretap revealed a conversa- tion between the union and Mr. Munro about campaign contributions. "The sources described the conversation as a 'bombshell.' Munro told The Star that such a conversation took place but subsequently he decided to return the SIU cheque to the union." The cheque was for and was sent by the SIU to Mr. Munro as a campaign contribution before the July federal election. The newspaper quoted Mr. Munro as saying he returned the cheque and this has been confirmed in separate state- ments by Joseph Kostyk, chief fund-raiser for the minister, and Gordon McCaffery, his executive assistant. Mr. Munro was not available Mon- day. Mr. Kostyk said Sunday the was returned to the SIU after the election. Black-white detente rumored in S. Africa JOHANNESBURG (AP) South African newspapers are rife with speculation that a major breakthrough is immi- nent for detente between black-and white-ruled Africa. Some newspapers report Prime Minister John Vorster may have paved the way for summit talks with African leaders during a secret trip or trips to black Africa in Oc- tober. Such talks would presumably concentrate on white-ruled Rhodesia reaching a settlement with its African majority as the price the whites must pay for detente in southern Africa. The Sunday Times reported that Vorster may have flown to the Ivory Coast recently for talks with Presidents Felix Houphouet-Boigny of Ivory Coast and Leopold Senghor of Senegal. There has been no official confirmation or denial that Vorster made the trip. A later report in the Cape Town newspaper Die Burger said the South African leader may have made at least two trips to black Africa but no de- tails were given. The newspaper said Vorster was also playing a key role in other delicate negotiations "that informed observers describe as even more un- believable than his dramatic flight more than two months ago." Die Burger said the secret flights were only part of an in- tensive diplomatic offensive. The Rand Daily Mail pub- lished a report from London today saying a meeting between Vorster and Presi- dent Kenneth Kaunda of Zam- bia might take place this weekend. BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.
