Watergate top news story of 1974 By GEORGE KOLESNIKOVS The Canadian Press The triumph of the Trudeau Liberal government in the July 8 federal election was clearly Canada's top story of 1974, say the men who select the news that will be read, heard and viewed daily across the nation. The sordid tale of Water- the bungled bur- glary to the presidential par- resoundingly as the world's biggest news story of 1974. Because of his victory, .Prime Minister Trudeau was viewed as Man-of-the-Year in Canada. In his disgrace, Richard Milhous Nixon earn- ed distinction as Man of the Year on the international scene. And 1 Margaret Trudeau, the prime minister's wife, was seen by Canadian editors as the leading Canadian new- smaker outside politics. The views are expressed in The Canadian Press' annual poll of member newspaper editors and news directors of radio and television stations served by CP's subsidiary, Broadcast News. The governing Liberal par- ty, driven to the brink of dis- aster in the 1972 election, swept back in July with a sur- prise majority victory that cut Progressive Conservative strength and left the New Democratic Party battered and adrift with a defeated leader. Contradicting pollsters and pundits, the Liberals scored gains in seven of 10 provinces, won 141 comfortable seats and gave Prime Minister Trudeau a unique comeback. No other prime minister ever fell to a minority position in Parliament and won another majority without first being out of office. The rotten-egg scandal and the federal-provincial resources dispute were rank- ed closely together as the se- cond and third most interesting Canadian stories of 1974. Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan, who received the brunt of criticism for the spoilage of 28 million eggs while the story was fresh, was voted the second most newsworthy Canadian. He was absolved of blame in the egg scandal when a special Commons committee on egg found the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency and egg processors at fault. Premier Peter Lougheed of Alberta, a central figure in the power struggle between the federal government and the provinces over resource revenues was seen as the third newsiest. The cost of living in Canada rose 12 per cent during 1974 to become a subject of concern for all Canadians and the fourth newsiest story for editors. The violence that shut down Quebec's multi-million dollar James Bay power project in March was ranked fifth. Fire and sabotage forced the re- moval of the 900-man labor force and caused million damage. In the world categories, the story which rated second behind Nixon-Watergate hasn't ended yet. Patricia Hearst, the news' aper heiress kidnapped in February by the Symbionese Liberation Army, announced in April that she had become a revolutionary and joined her captors. The Federal Bureau of Investigation later issued a warrant for her arrest in connection with a bank robbery but has not found her. Her parents hold faint hopes of seeing their 20-year-old daughter again. The globe-circling problems of energy and inflation were listed next in the international category. U.S. secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, was the se- cond newsiest international figure and President Gerald Ford third. While Nixon was beleaguered in the White House, Kissinger became his foreign fixer, on the move from one world trouble spot to the next, generally successful as a peacemaker. When Ford took over the besmirched presidency, he was hailed as the man most likely to return decency and honesty to the White House. After he pardoned Nixon, his popularity began to wane. Mrs Trudeau, 26, who had said she wanted to protect her privacy but remained in the news when she hit the cam- paign trail for her husband, when she entered hospital for treatment of mental strain, and again when she granted a television network a revealing interview. Henry Morgenthaler, the Montreal doctor who says he has performed to abortions during the last four years to demonstrate his opposition to Canadian abor- tion laws, ranked second behind Mrs. Trudeau because of his trials in the courts. Third place was a tie between Mordecai Richler of Montreal and Ferguson Jenkins of Chatham, Ont. Richler's novel, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, was a bestseller and was followed by the successful movie based on his book. Jenkins' performance as a pitcher for Texas Rangers of the American League made the club a team to be reckoned with. Other Canadians outside of public life to figure in the poll were Dr. Morton Shulman, the crusading New Democratic Party member of the Ontario Legislature, Cindy Nicholas, the 16-year-old swimmer who crossed Lake Ontario in record time, author Farley Mowat, poet Irving Layton, ballet director Celia Franca, sports attorney Allan Eagleson, and Gordie Howe, the hockey legend. "The man who has to pay the bills" also received a vote. Canadian news events that also rated in the voting were the kidnap and murder of two Moncton policemen, the crash in Arctic waters of a Panarc- tic Oils Ltd. plane in which 32 died, Robert Stanfield's an- nounced plans to retire as Progressive Conservative leader, the murder trial of Peter Demeter, the allegations of violence, bribery and other wrongdoings by the Seafarers' International Union, the grow- ing militancy of Canada's native peoples and the stroke suffered by Gov.-Gen. Jules Leger. Other international events mentioned in the poll were the continued violence in Northern Ireland, the return of Harold Wilsons's Labor Party to power in the United Kingdom, the death and destruction brought to the Honduras by Hurricane Fifi and the explosion of a nuclear bomb by India. In balloting for Canadian newsmaker of the year, votes were also cast for Mrs Trudeau, hockey star Bobby Hull, consumer protector Beryl Plumptre, Mayor Jean Drapeu of Montreal and Finance Minister John Turner. Other international news- makers noted were Yasser Arafat, leader of the Palesti- nian Liberation Organization, and Archbishop Makarios of Cyprus Mills admits having severe drinking problem WASHINGTON (AP) Re- publican Wilbur Mills said to- day he intends to remain in Congress despite having developed what he described as "a severe drinking problem." "I know that I am a well man as long as I do not drink, and, by the grace of God and with competent medical ad- vice and the support of friends, I will remain Mills said. "In light of the above, it is my intention to continue in the Congress of the United States. My years of experience have given me some ability to make a contribution toward the solution of the problems of the times in which we the Arkansas Democrat said. Mills is in Bethesda Naval Hospital, which he entered after appearing on a Boston stage with Annabel Bat- tistelia, the strip-tease dancer in whose company he was found when police stopped his car at Washington's Tidal Basin earlier this year. He issued his statement through his office. "I now realize, after several weeks of treatment by the doctors and soul-searching of my own, that I had developed a severe drinking problem, not as a daily drinker but as a periodic heavy Mills said. Mills said that he had scarcely noticed in the last several years that his drinking habits had changed. He said he understands now that his pattern of drinking corresponds with alcoholism, which he called "a physical il- lness, as much as cancer and diabetes, and even more destructive in the sense that it affects far more people than the sufferer." "I know now that I have been a sick man who did not understand the nature of the illness." Mills said. "I now have an understanding of the nature of this disease and I know how to live with it. The answer lies in total ab- stinence." In what he said will be his last explanation of his con- duct, Mills said his illness has caused him to suffer blackouts, "periods during which I have had no knowledge of what I was doing. "These were temporary in nature and happened only when I had ingested alcohol, but they do explain some of my recent Mills said. Mills said he intends to dedi- cate himself to the work of Congress and of the House of Representatives ways and means committee which he served as chairman before the Tidal Basin incident He was stripped of the post after the Boston appearance Citizens support death penalty DELTA, BC (CP) A citizen's movement to enforce capital punishment for the slaying of police officers was started Friday, just a few feet from the spot where a policeman was fatally shot Nov 3. The unnamed group, partly organized by MP John Reynolds (PC Burnaby Richmond planned to launch a petition early in 1975 demanding the federal cabinet not commute a death sentence if the convicted murderer has exhausted all possible court appeals. "All we are doing is asking the cabinet to live up to the Mr Reynolds told seven people meeting at a house next door to where Delta municipal police Staff Sergeant Ronald Edward McKay was slain by a shotgun blast. Steve Griffith, a spokesman for the group, said the death of S Sgt McKay prompted the meeting and formation of the group because policemen have absolutely no protection under the law while on duty Mr. Reynolds said many wives of lower mainland policemen had expressed interest in petition but he told them not to attend the meeting until plans were com- pleted. He said he wants to hold a meeting Jan 20 to organize the petition.

He was 73 and had suffered from a heart condition for years. Indian chic The Denver Art Museum is presenting an exhibit of authen- tic North American Indian art and clothing, including samples of body painting, tattoos, jewelry and articles used to pierce skin for insertion of jewelry. A carved wooden mask (top left) with abalone shell or- naments and raveled hair is from British Columbia circa 1880. Below it is an authentic beaded vest worn by a Sioux warrior from the Dakotas. More exotic is the "Bighead" dancer (bottom dressed in reeds, wooden rods and various feathers. He was from the Maru cult near Porno, Calif., and appeared at harvest ceremonies to urge tribesmen to east off European influences and return to early ways.

Abstract animal designs dominate a blanket from the Tlingits of Alaska (top, right) and is made from goat wool and shredded tree bark. It is believ- ed Indian drawings of animals were probably so abstract in order to conform with the blanket's shape or texture.
