Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 3, 1973 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - 9 Kennedy uncovers spy activities WASHINGTON (Reuter) -Senator Edward Kennedy said Friday he has uncovered evidence linking the White House to a wide range of espionage and sabotage activities against the Democrats during last year's United States presidential election. The Democratic senator from Massachusetts said the evidence strongly indicates that one key participant was hi repeated touch with the White House over the spying and sabotage. President Nixon and his staff have denied any involvement in illegal activities against the Democrats. Seven men, including Nixon re-election campaign aides, are awaiting sentence for bugging Democratic party heqadquarters. Kennedy, a possible Democratic presidential contender in 1967, is chairman of a Senate sub-committee that has been investigating allegations of spying and sabotage by the Republicans. He said in a report to Senator James Eastland (Dem. Miss.), chairman of the Senate judiciary committee: "The information gathered thus far by the sub-committee strongly indicates that a wide range of espionage and sabotage activities did occur during the recent presidential campaign, and especially its primary phase." Kennedy said there were strong indications one key participant was in repeated touch with the White House. He added that at least part of the financing of the operation was arranged by a key Republican fund-raiser who is closely associated with President Nixon. Despite the evidence, Kennedy said, the White House and the justice department failed to investigate the activities other than the break-in and bugging of Democratic haadquarters. The Washington Post says that the "key participant" referred to by Kennedy was Donald Segretti, a California lawyer.

Quiet diplomacy pays dividends in Vietnam Eastpolitik condemned BONN (AP) J- Upper house lawmakers voted 21 to 20 today a g a i ns t Chancellor Willy Brandts normalization treaty with East Germany in a move that could delay but not block ratification of the accord. Opposition Christian Democratic party representatives in the Bundesrat, the upper house which represents West Germany's 10 federal states and West Berlin, used their one-vote majority to push through a motion condemning the accord. Opposition speakers said the treaty, which seeks to put relations between the two Germa-nys on a legal basis for the first time in a quarter century of cold-war hostility, would seal Germany's post-war division permanently by recognizing the rival Communist regime.

Phone 328-5447 By HAROLD MORRISON CP Foreign Editor The quiet form of Canadian diplomacy, on which the country has built its reputation, seems to be paying off in Vietnam. This is probably the most difficult peacekeeping assignment Canadian troops have ever undertaken. The mandate under which the Canadians, Poles, Hungarians and Indonesians serve appears to be deliberately vague. For them It is not really a question of trying to keep the peace but to watch and listen to complaints that one side shot against the other and to report findings to a Joint Military Commission which at the outset is composed of the North and South Vietnamese, the United States and the Viet Cong's provisional republican government. If, in fact, the joint commission is ever given a unanimous report by the observers-and this may turn out to be a rare event-then the commission may agree on a joint solution, another unlikely prospect. The maintenance of peace In a country which has seen war for 30 years will in the end depend on the will of the primary adversaries, those based in Saigon and those based in the North. PATIENCE MAY PAY Realistically, it seems the presence of the Canadians, as well as the other truce observers, serves little purpose. Yet the facts demonstrate that the perseverance and patience of the Canadians, particularly of Ambassador Michel Gauvin, are producing results. It is significant that when it came to selecting a chairman among the observer group, the truce observers decided on Gauvin. And while he was only selected as a temporary chairman, originally for the initial meeting, the temporary nature of his job seems to be becoming more permanent. Calmly and quietly, Gauvin has been urging the quarrelling Joint Military Commission to get on with the job of peace. The situation now seems to be resolving itself to the point where a delegation of the truce observers will move out, under protection, to at least three of the points where they are to observe the ceasefire, to prepare for housing, adminsstration and communications. The adversaries speak now more of the battle of the flags than the battle of bullets. Old enemies are trying to outdo each other in decorating villages with symbols of popularity, probably the first step in preparation for national elec-1 Hons if they are ever held. That doesn't mean that the presence of the Canadians, or the Poles or the other truce observers can by themselves persuade the enemies to confine their struggle to the political arena. But this prospect may not by itself determine whether the Canadians remain or withdraw from Vietnam. The mere hope | that their presence can contribute to the peace may be sufficient to encourage the Canadians to plod on. Live on the Rock when you retire. And Save Tax Dollars Now!
