Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 21, 1974 News In brief Watergate summation continues Haldeman lawyer flays Dean THEY GAVE Pensions after Christmas OTTAWA (CP) Pen- sioners will have to wait until after Christinas to get their December cheques, the government said Friday. Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde told the Commons this has been the practice in previous years family allowance cheques are mailed to arrive before Christmas and old age pension cheques between Christmas and New Year's. Allan Lawrence (PC Northumberland Durham) had asked if all such cheques were mailed in time for Christmas. Australian nuclear case ends WASHINGTON (AP) Prosecution and defence lawyers said Friday the Watergate cover-up trial jury will have to make this decision: Was chief prosecu- tion witness John Dean a professional liar or the victim of a plot by the defendants? John Wilson, lawyer for de- fendant H. R. Haldeman, began his summation of evidence Friday with a scathing attack on Dean, former White House counsel, and on Jeb Stuart Magruder, once an aide to former presi- dent Richard Nixon. Wilson talked for nearly 2Vz hours before U.S. District Judge John Sirica recessed for the day. Closing argument for Haldeman will be com- pleted Monday. Wilson addressed the jury of nine women and three men after prosecutor James Neal completed his summation of the government's case against the five defendants. Neal had charged that as soon as Dean decided to co-op- erate with the Watergate prosecutors he changed from "Good John Dean" to "Mean John Dean" in the eyes of Richard Nixon and his closest aides. He told the jury that a plot to make Dean the scapegoat for the Watergate scandal had begun in the White House soon after the break-in of the Democratic party head- quarters was discovered. The THE HAGUE (AP) The World Court ended Australia's case against France over at- mospheric nuclear tests in the South Pacific Friday because of what it considered France's promise to stop such tests. The court decided by a 9-tcM3 vote that the proceedings no longer have any object. Australia petitioned the court in May, 1973, to declare French atmospheric testing in the Pacific contrary to inter- national law. Similar applications were filed by New Zealand and Fiji. The court issued an interim injunction against the tests last June, but the French went ahead with a summer series of tests near Mururoa Atoll in the Pacific. In the meantime, President Valery Giscard d'Estaing announced that the French nuclear defence program will require only un- derground testing after 1974. French president claims Mideast solution weighed PARIS (Reuter) French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing said Friday the United States, France and the Soviet Union are in agreement on a solution to the Middle East problem, but not on how to achieve it. He said in a television inter- view: "There is now a con- vergence of views on the Mid- dle East by a great number of countries. We are in a situa- tion where we all know more or less what the solution Desjardins regains seat WINNIPEG (CP) Larry Desjardins, the man who assured the survival of the province's NDP government four years ago, regained his seat in the legislature Friday with a by election victory in the Winnipeg riding of St. Boniface. With all but one of the riding's 44 polls counted, the NDP candidate had votes, to for Liberal Paul Marion and 377 for Progressive Conservative Paul Fredette. Mr. Desjardins, 51, who had served as minister of tourism, recreation and cultural affairs in the government of Premier Ed Schreyer, is expected to return to the cabinet as early as next week. The premier played an ac- tive role in the NDP campaign in St. Boniface and promised Mr. Desjardins the ministry of health and social develop- ment if he was successful. The riding has traditionally been a Liberal stronghold. Helicopter crew may have been fighting fire Senate approves dope bill OTTAWA (CP) A bill to lighten the penalties for sim- ple possession of marijuana and hashish was approved in principle Friday by the Senate. The bill would eliminate jail sentences for simple posses- sion of cannabis, the generic name for marijuana and hashish, and halve the max- imum penalties to for a first offence and for subsequent offences. A person convicted of cannabis posses- sion could be jailed only if he failed to pay the fine. The act to remove cannabis offences from the Narcotic Control Act and bring them under the Food and Drugs Act now goes to the Senate com- mittee on legal and con- stitutional affairs for clause- by-clause study. Penalties for trafficking in cannabis also would be re- a maximum of 10 years in prison from life im- prisonment. WASHINGTON (CP) Five Canadian airmen, killed half an hour after taking off in a brand-new helicopter, may have died fighting the fire as their aircraft fell in flames. A well-placed informant said Friday the investigation into the Oct. 18 crash of the CH-47 Chinook is proceeding along those lines because a witness has reported seeing the aircraft on fire in flight and because the helicopter's new fire extinguishers were found in the wreckage, empty. The investigation is in the hands of the Canadian military and no comment was immediately available on the unconfirmed reports. The helicopter was purchas- ed by the Canadian govern- ment from the Vertol Division of Boeing Aircraft at Philadelphia. A Boeing crew flew it to New Cumberland army depot, a United States military base near Harrisburg, Pa., for modi- fications. The Canadian crew took over the helicopter at New Cumberland depot and tested it before accepting it. Half an hour after take-off for Ot- tawa, the five-man crew died when the Chinook fell into almost inaccessible mountain country. The informant, who asked not to be identified, said investigators were working on the possibility that the helicopter's rotors may have gone out of synchronization, hit one another, broken and shattered the fuselage. San Quentin jail uneasy SAN QUENTIN (AP) Officials at San Quentin prison said today an outbreak of stabbings was a random at- tack on black prisoners by members of what they called the Mexican Mafia. They said more violence in the form of retaliation may lie ahead. r ing Soon fKe dfarvesfers ffind life to in an afmospfiere of dimes, and Service. and cffieef us.

The French president recently had meetings with President Ford and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. He said a solution to the conflict will have to take into account three factors: The Palestinian problem, the question of Israeli occupation of Arab lands and Israel's right to exist. On the question of energy, on which the French and U.S. presidents reached a com- promise at their Martinique summit earlier this week, Giscard d'Estaing said it is essential that there be a conference of oil-producing and oil-consuming countries. He said the U.S. has chang- ed its mind about pressing for a substantial reduction in oil prices, which have quadrupled in the last year. "Last year the United States was for a substantial reduction, but now it is for a slight drop in the price of he said. The French leader, inter- viewed for almost an hour by four reporters in a live tele- vision broadcast, reaffirmed that France has no plans to re- join NATO's integrated military command. Giscard d'Estaing said he supported Brezhnev's hope that a giant East-West sum- mit conference on European security will take place in the first half of next year. plot was continuing in the courtroom, Neal said, and warned the jury they would hear further attempts to lay the Watergate blame on Dean. Wilson was not long in show- ing the reason for Neal's warning. "John Dean was a master- mind of chicanery, of monkey business, of flouting the law, of having no Wilson said. "He's an embezzler. He's a liar, he's a perjurer, he has a kalei- doscope of criminal activity which seems beyond the pale of an ordinary human being." Neal had urged the jurors to listen to the tapes during their deliberations if they had any doubts about the motives of Haldeman, his fellow White House aide John Ehrlichman or of former attorney-general John Mitchell, three of the five defendants accused of trying to cover up the Watergate breakin. The case is expected to go to the jury next Thursday or Fri- day. Railway collision kills three NAPANEE, Ont. (CP) Three persons were killed Fri- day night in the head-on colli- sion of a Canadian National Railways passenger train and a freight train about 11 miles west of Kingston, Ont. A CN spokesman identified one of the dead as CN engineer Ray Mortimer of Belleville, Ont. Later, the body of another engineer, identified only as K. Boyle, also of Belleville, was found. Earlier, searchers dis- covered the body of a woman passenger locked in a washroom of one of the lead coaches. A CN spokesman confirmed both trains were on the same track. Rescue attempts were ham- pered by knee-deep snow one- half mile east of Highway 133. Ambulances were unable to get closer than 200 to 400 yards of the site. Gold prospectors head for Rockies DUTCH FLAT, Calif. (Reu- ter) History is repeating it- self out West: The gold rush of '49 is on again. Throughout the West, big mining corporations are in- vesting millions and installing new recovery techniques in abandoned mines, and small prospectors are heading for the Rockies and the Sierras, armed with picks and pans. Homestake Mining Co., the largest United States gold pro- ducer, began to look for aban- doned mines a year ago. Other gold mining companies have followed suit.

Among Golden Cycle's possessions is the fabled Ajax mine on Battle Mountain, once known as among the richest in the world. Such investments have brought forth amateur for- tune-seekers who now comb the old gold fields with pick, shovel, sluicebox and gold pan. Gold fever has also spread to Alaska where a number of abandoned mines have been brought back into production and more are scheduled to re- open. Montana reports mining permits are being issued at a rate 500 per cent above a year ago. Mine firms ask ruling VANCOUVER (CP) Eighteen British Columbia mining companies filed a writ Friday which asks the B.C. Supreme Court to rule on the legality of provincial govern- ment mining legislation. The writ asks the court to find the Mineral Royalties Act and the Mineral Land Tax Act ultra vires and invalid under the British North America Act.

Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova, executive director, said the extra funds will provide five carloads of skim milk powder. Dr. Hitschmanova, who has just completed the coast-to- coast campaign to raise the committee objective by Christmas, said in a state- ment that "one dollar from one in every 100 Canadians would put us right over the top." The service committee, 30 years old next year, supports 143 projects in 13 countries. Pilgrims chant Jerusalem desire MECCA, Saudi Arabia (AP) An estimated 1.5 million Moslem pilgrims chanted "We want Jerusalem" as King Faisal today opened the Islamic festival of Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca. The 70-year-old king washed the Kaaba, the black stone outside Mecca's Grand Mos- que, Islam's holiest shrine, then walked bareheaded and barefooted into the mosque. The ritual washing opens the week-long Hajj celebration. The prophet Mohammed's tomb in Medina, 200 miles from Mecca, is held to be Islam's second holiest shrine. Jerusalem's Al Aksa mosque and Dome of the Rock, where legend says Mohammed ascended to heaven on horseback, are ranked third in importance by Moslems. East Jerusalem, the site of the Islamic holy places, was occupied by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war. 1 4 i RUG DRAPES LTD.
