Any of the problems now on the surface may develop into production cuts during the winter Shortages of including may mean unemployment In the United econo- mists are predicing a no- growth year in 1974. they're in then we're in Mr Thibault because the U.S is Canada's major customer. It takes more than two-thirds of our exports. WILL SET STAGE going to be a tough winter but if you look beyond the current difficulties it will set the stage for a much more soundly based ex- pansion John research direc- tor for the Ontario Federation of said labor is concerned that an energy shortage might be used as a convenient excuse for allowing companies to escape provisions of labor codes which provide for up to 16 weeks notice of layoff.

Youth slips to death EDMONTON Kirby of Edmonton was killed when he slipped from a snowbank into the path of a car in the city's west end NEW YORK Time is rapidly running out for President Nixon to produce his long-promised Watergate defence. For Nixon has been promising full disclosure on White House involvement in the Watergate affair and proclaiming that the once will prove him in- nocent of wrong-doing. This the White House launched Vhat it called Opera- tion Candor but it has con- sisted largely of protestations of innocence by the president in speeches before carefully selected audiences and groups of Republican congressmen called in for White House briefings. No documentary or other evidence has yet been produced. the country has seen Nixon fight vigorously against a court order to release to the Watergate prosecutor tape recordings of conversations between the president and key aides on Watergate matters. His deci- sion finally to release the tapes was followed by White House disclosure that two tapes were blank and that an 18-minute gap existed in a third. MANY HEADS FALL All this against a political background that included the resignation of the vice- the dismissal of the Watergate prosecutor and the resignation of the attorney- general and his chief and the indictment of two former cabinet ministers and a half-dozen or so White House aides on Watergate related charges. A new element now has entered the lengthening political drama with the approval by Congress of Michigan congressman Gerald Ford as vice- president.
