McCarthy called a news con- ference to say he is a "de facto, de jure" candidate, since he has assented to the filing of a Mc- Carthy for President committee in Massachusetts. Before the presidential election. McCarthy entered the New Hampshire primary and won 20 out of 2-t convention del- egates against then-president Lyndon Johnson. Johnson won 49 per cent of the popular vote and McCarthy 42 per cent. Ultimately Johnson withdrew from the race and it was gener- ally considered to have been McCarthy's showing in New Hampshire that spurred that withdrawal. Bomb blasts kil the coming presidential mission to China, but the prime minister wants to know how Nixon thinks Washington's developing dia- logue with Peking might affect Europe. The prime minister is anxious to discover just how far the strategic arms limitation talks between the U.S. and Russia may go. And he is aware of congressional pressures for a reduction in Uie American garrison in Europe. Heath's intention, aides re- ported, is to remind Nixon that (hose American troops are in I-Airope for the security of the United States, as well as the protection of Western Europe.

Chief Justice J. V. H. Mil- vain sentenced Latta to the mandatory life imprisonment after a jury of seven men and five women returned a verdict of "Guilty as charged" follow- ing three hours and 40 minutes of deliberation. Latta, from Kingston, Ont, was charged in the shooting of Bob Neville, 38, also a separ- ate school board trustee. WIDOW CRIES Mr. Neville's wife, Karen, heard the verdict and was help- ed from the courtroom in tears. She left the city Sunday to join her children in Hawaii for Christmas. When the verdict was an- nounced Latta, a former part- ner in Mr. Neville's travel agency, put his hand over his face. He will be held in Fort Sas- katchewan jail, 15 miles north- east of here, pending a deci- sion on an appeal. Chief Justice Milvain said he was "deeply grateful" to both defence and prosecution law- yers for the "eminently fair manner" in which the evidence was presented during the five- day trial, during which 44 wit- nesses were called. He commended the Edmon- ton city police force "for the good and careful" preparation on the case. In his charge to the jury, Chief Justice Milvain said the evidence showed Mr. Neville did not lead the most cir- cumspect life but this is not a determining factor as he is not on trial." He told the jury that It was not necessary to have a motive to prove that the crime was committed by the accused. Neville's body, with bullet wounds in the back and chest, was found in his downtown of- fice Sunday, June 13. Cameron Steer, defence counsel, in his summation to the jury, asked them to re- member that no one saw who killed Mr. Neville and that en- mity and hate created by Mr. Neville's relationship with oth- er women may have prompted a blackmail attempt and his murder. Karlier an Edmonton police officer testified that a man identifying himself as Latta had told him, in a long-distance telephone conversation shortly after the murder, of a black- mail attempt on Mr. Neville.
