Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBftlDGE HERALD Tuesday, Dtctmbtr 24, 1974 Mail-sorting machine operators get parity OTTAWA (CP) A new pay agreement for postal employees who run automatic coding and mail-sorting machines has injected a ray of hope into the often-gloomy saga of post office labor relations. The agreement improves the jobs of the machine operators and brings their lower pay equal to that of manual sorters. Postmaster-General Bryce Mackasey announced the agreement Friday in the Com- mons and Jean-Claude Parrot, acting national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Worlers has greeted it as a victory The arrangement followed months of talks between union and government officials un- der Toronto mediator Eric Taylor, who was given the task last April of settling a bitter illegal national strike that arose over the technological change issue. The change is likely to im- prove the bargaining climate with contract talks affecting about postal work em- ployees, including mail truckdrivers, letter carriers and inside workers, to begin in the next few weeks. Automatic appeals end OTTAWA (CP) Automatic appeals to the Supreme Court of Canada in civil cases involving or more will cease before Jan. 28, Chief Justice Bora Laskin announced today. The chief justice said he has been informed that a govern- ment bill ending automatic appeals will be proclaimed be- tween now and Jan. 28, UNSAFE OTTAWA (CP) Eight brands of con- doms, all of them made in Germany or Den- mark, have been remov- ed from the Canadian market because of the likelihood of leakage, Health Minister Marc Lalonde announced Monday. The recalls follow testing of 60 brands of the contraceptive devices by health protection branch of- ficials, says the an- nouncement from Mr. Lalonde's department. Consumers in posses- sion of the products are advised to return them to the place of purchase or destroy them. Nixon pardon 'too WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. District Judge John Sirica said Monday that while the pardon granted former president Nixon is "too it should not affect the out- come of the Watergate cover up trial. Sirica said his acceptance of a medical opinion that Nixon should not testify at the trial does not give defence lawyers licence to use the former president's absence as an argument for acquittal. "I don't think the fact that he is not here makes any he said. Earlier, John Mitchell's lawyer said the evidence in the Watergate cover up trial has shown his client's mis- guided loyalty to Nixon was rewarded by a decision to make the former attorney general "the fall guy" of Watergate.

Mayor Mignth Orivi Phone 328-8861 said only Jeb Stuart Magruder, "a confessed per- has testified that Mitchell gave his approval for the original Watergate bugg- ing and burglary. Without proof that Mitchell approved the June 17, 1972, break in, Hundley said there is no motive for Mitchell to have taken part in the cover up. Mitchell, 61, former direc- tor of Nixon's 1972 re elec- tion campaign, is accused with the other four defendants of conspiring to block the investigation into the burglary at Democratic National Com- mittee headquarters. Hundley said Mitchell kept what he knew about Watergate to himself out of loyalty to Nixon and a com- mitment to the re election of the president. Before Hundley's argument, Judge Sirica an- nounced that contrary to earlier plans, there will be no court held today CAREERS VANCOUVER (CP) At- torney General Alex Mac- donald, minister in charge of the Crown owned British Columbia Petroleum Cor- poration, announced today the corporation will not raise prices it pays to producers. He said the federal govern- ment has set the basic price for taxing natural gas producers at double what the B.C. Petroleum Corp. pays for the gas. "Ottawa will not accept the arrangement worked out between B.C. and the petroleum producers Mr. Macdonald said. "We will not raise the prices we are paying to producers as a result of this." Mr. Macdonald said 55 wells that were to have been drilled in January and February will not be drilled as a result of the federal move, which means a production shortfall of 400 million to 500 million cubic feet a day in B.C. The provincial government now pays the producers 22 cents per thousand cubic feet and sells at an average of 86 cents a thousand. The federal government, he said, wants to tax the producers on a "fair market price" instead of the 22 cents the province pays them. Nixon pays back taxes NEW YORK (AP) Former U.S. president Richard Nixon has paid in taxes, penalties and interest he owed New York state from the sale in 1969 of his co operative apartment here, the tax com- mission said Monday. Nixon had reported a capital gain of from the sale of the Fifth Avenue apartment. Since the profits were re invested in his San Clemente estate, which he claimed as his principal residence, he did not original- ly pay any tax on it. However, the congressional joint committee on internal revenue taxation asserted last April 3 that San Clemente was not Nixon's main residence and that he should have paid a tax on the transaction. It also estimated the gain at That month, California laid claim to in back tax- es for 1969 and 1970. And the Internal Revenue Service said he owed nearly in back income taxes.
