Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 11, 1974 Sailor union storm still blowing through House OTTAWA (CP) Charges and countercharges continued to fly Tuesday in the storm surrounding the powerful Seafarers' International Union and federal and provin- cial politicians. In the capital, Labor Minister John Munro made another attempt to untangle the web of innuendo that sur- rounds him, Liberal party money managers said they kept SIU money from reaching Finance Minister John Turner and the attorney- general of Ontario said he will not allow the SIU to prosecute a member of the provincial legislature. In British Columbia, mean- while, a former judge who once investigated the Cana- dian shipping industry said trustees appointed to watch Tories divided on redistribution OTTAWA (CP) A Com- mons committee began study Tuesday of a bill to add and redistribute Commons seats, but it appeared the future of the proposed legislation might be decided in the Progressive Conservative caucus. Two factions within that party appeared more clearly during and after a session of the privileges and election committee, with an Alberta- British Columbia group intent on gaining more Commons seats for their provinces. Harvie Andre (Calgary Centre) said in an interview he rejects as inadequate a compromise suggested in the committee by Gordon Ritchie the Conservatives' official spokesman on redistribution. That suggestion would insert a clause requiring future revision of the open- ended Commons expansion proposed in the bill. Mr. Andre said he and a group of western MPs will in- sist on one additional seat each for the two westernmost provinces in addition to a means of limiting Commons growth. Without this, he would try and convince his party to block the bill which must be passed by year's end or the present system of redistribution will continue. the union in the early 1960s were not tough enough. Mr. Munro, who became the focal point of the SIU storm when it was later he solicited campaign funds from the union, took issue in the Commons about an exchange that occurred Monday in the Ontario legislature. The labor minister said the exchange between Solicitor- General George Kerr and Stephen Lewis, leader of the provincial New Democratic Party, demonstrated how misinformation can be dangerous. Mr. Lewi? asked Mr. Kerr on what grounds he was ask- ing for a royal commission to investigate the SIU, as reported in a Toronto new- spaper. Mr. Kerr replied that there was "some exaggeration to the and said the On- tario government is not "demanding a probe." He said he told the reporter that his department had been ask- ed in a letter from federal Justice Minister Otto Lang if there was any reason to call a public inquiry. He said a reply would be made later this week and, while he had no objection to tabling copies of the letters, he thought he first should ask the federal authorities in- volved.

Vic Belknapp, superintendent of child welfare, said in an interview Tuesday night that B.C. wants the Canadian em- bassy in Korea to investigate the procedures involved. He said the provincial government will discourage B.C. parents from adopting Korean children until the investigation is completed. The government's action is the result of an incident last week when Human Resources Minister Norm Levi ordered an adoption hearing halted after it was learn- ed the child being adopted, from Pusan, Korea, was allegedly kidnapped. News In brief Marcos to free prisoners MANILA (CP) Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos announced today that 622 pris- oners being held under mar- tial law will be released, but those linked to an alleged plot to assassinate him will be held for trial. In a radio-television address, Marcos said those in- volved in the plot were not covered by his amnesty decree because they are "common criminals moved by private, personal motives." Ill-treated men get damages Ehrlichman in tears as he tells of being fired BELFAST (Renter) Four men who said they were bru- tally ill-treated by British se- curity forces in Northern Ire- land in 1971 were awarded a total of damages in Ulster High Court Tuesday. Three now are held by the authorities in the Maze prison. They were awarded damages against the defence ministry and the former Northern Ireland ministry of home affairs, after alleging ill-treatment following their arrest on Aug. the day that interment without trial was introduced to try to reduce guerrilla violence. WASHINGTON (AP) Tears welling in his eyes, John Ehrlichman testified at the Watergate cover-up trial Tuesday that he rejected offers of financial help from Richard Nixon when the former president asked for his resignation. In one of the most emotional moments of the trial, Ehrlich- man described his last meeting with Nixon before resigning as a top aide. Chief prosecutor James Neal today begins cross- examining Ehrlichman, one of five defendants charged with conspiring to obstruct justice by covering up the facts of the Watergate break-in. Ehrlichman's lawyer, William Frates, asked him about repeated testimony that the original seven Watergate defendants were paid in exchange for not telling what they knew. He said he never knew of anyone being paid hush money to keep them silent. The 49-year-old lawyer said he repeatedly recommended, until his resignation April 30, 1973, that Nixon make public disclosure of the facts of Watergate. It was Ehrlichman's description of his final meeting with Nixon which caused him to break down. He recalled meeting Nixon at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md. the day be- fore Ehrlichman resigned. "This was a very painful conversation for him (Nix- Ehrlichman said. "He broke down at one point and cried." Ehrlichman quoted the for- mer president as saying he re- gretted asking Ehrlichman to quit and wished he had follow- ed Ehrlichman's advise. Nixon offered to help him with legal fees if necessary, Ehrlichman said, and told him "he had a large sum of money available to him and he would like to have me share it." "I told him I could not accept that offer or anything like it." When Nixon askeJ if there were anything else he could do, Ehrlichman said he replied: "I said some day I would like him to explain to our children." With that, Ehrlichman was unable to continue, and Judge John Sirica called a recess. Earlier, Frates asked his client if Nixon didn't tell him one thing about clemency, then deceive him by telling former special White House counsel Charles Colson else. "Well, if you compare what he told me with what's on the White House tapes, yes sir, it's very Ehrlichman said. Prisoners take hostages WALPOLE, Mass. (AP) Eight prisoners at Walpole state prison, some of them armed with knives, took two guards and a medical assis- tant hostage Tuesday night and issued a list of demands. Prison officials released no specifics on the demands, but a state correction department spokesman, David Brown, said he thought the eight were upset over a routine weapons search and the cancellation of a prisoners' banquet Tuesday night. Montreal fugitive caught U.S. oil ability MONTREAL (CP) Edgar Roussel's battle to evade capture ended Tuesday when the 28-year-old fugitive from St. Vincent de Paul penitentiary was caught after a Shootout with police in sub- urban Verdun. Roussel was serving seven years for holdups and escapes when he and four other men broke out of the maximum-se- curity prison Oct. 23 using weapons smuggled into the visitors' room by two women. WASHINGTON (AP) An official of Exxon, largest oil company in the United States, says the government was. over-optimistic when it claim- ed the U.S. could eliminate oil imports by 1985. William Slick, Exxon senior vice-president, said the government overestimated by millions of barrels a day the country's ability to increase oil production. Slick spoke Tuesday at public hearings on energy policy. The hearings, spon- sored by the cabinet-level energy resources council, are in preparation for forth- coming policy recommen- dations to President Ford. Ford's energy advisers are to meet Saturday to prepare those recommendations. In other testimony at the hearings, a natural gas com- pany official predicted that gas shortages would force curtailment to residential users three or four years from now. Most energy-industry wit- nesses urged an end to govern- ment regulation of natural gas pricing, the removal of petro- leum price controls, increased offshore oil and gas leasing, and a "balancing" of environ- mental regulation with energy needs. Five Mexican police shot MEXICO CITY (AP) Mexico City's police depart- ment vowed today to avenge the death of five of its men gunned down by 15 stocking- masked terrorists who raided two local banks and made off with Two other policemen wounded in the robberies Tuesday were reported in serious condition. Three sextuplets survive Slick said Exxon estimated the U.S. can at best reduce oil imports from around 7 million barrels a day at the present to Death no less than 2.4 million by 1985. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Charlotte Lange's sextuplets The three survivors of still cling to their fragile grip on life. Howard Boyd, president of El Paso Natural Gas Co., a major pipeline company, predicted residential gas cur- tailments in three or four years. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Hamilton, Ont Timothy Mayberry, 71, a former presi- dent of Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. of Canada Ltd. Infants Jason Wesley, Brian Walter and Jolene Rene main- tained their stable condition today and their medical prognosis remained guarded, said a nursing supervisor at the Valley medical centre. Educators have doubts about commission report mERLEnORfflfln COSMETICS 1 PRETTY FINGERS HALIFAX (CP) Two educationists from Western Canada expressed serious reservations Tuesday about the implications of the recommendations relating to education in the Graham royal commission report on education, social services and provincial municipal relations. Dr. Henry Armstrong, ex- ecutive director of the British Columbia School Trustees Association, and Dr. Lowell Williams, executive director of the Alberta School Trustees Association, said they believ- ed implementation of the recommendations would be a backward step for the province. The royal commission report, released in June, recommends a major changes in the form of municipal government and a reduction of the number of counties to 11 from 18. It also urges basic changes in the administration of educational institutions. The two men, here to dis- cuss the report with the provincial school board association, were particularly critical of a section of the report recommending es- tablishment of school councils for each school in the province. The commission recommends that each school council have a minimum of nine and a maximum of 11 members. Dr. Armstrong said the school council as envisioned by the commission would perpetuate a "class system" whereby students from lower socio-economic areas would be served by inferior schools, teachers and materials as compared fo those in higher income areas. He suggested some power- ful people on the school coun- cils would wield greater political power and get more for their schools.
