Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Mondoy, 7, 1972 THE ICTHBRIDCI HERAIB 5 Russian agent claimed chauffeur London magazine to publish big scoop on Canadian PM lly JOHN Lrm.ANC LONDON Did a Cana- dian prime minister have a Rus- sian agent for a chauffeur? Jf lie did, readers of Hie Sun- day Times will soon be learning all about it, with lavish color photos to brighten up the text and plenty of fat ads at a page to cheer up Lord Thomson. Dreaming up ideas like The Hidden History of the anth Cen- which the Ottawa yarn is a still unexplored potential chapter is what helps put corpuscles in the veins of Thomson's lush and affluent publication, which celebrates its I Dili birthday Sunday. A decade ago, few except the Canadian-born publisher cared niu'.'h for the survival chances uf the magazine, an insert in Thomson's Sunday Times and the first of its kind in Britain.

Jagger plays an entertainer who drops out of society, in "Performance" a Warner Bros, film in which he stars with James Fox. For a time the odds looked reasonable. Thomson deter- mined to tap high-grade adver- tising with the novelty of color, sank more than ?2 million into his brain-child.

The grand jury in New York is investigating Irving's claim that a book manuscript he sold tfl McGraw-Hill, Inc., was a Hughes autobiography assembled at meetings with the reclusive billionaire. Irving had signed an affidavit saying he and Hughes had long sessions in Mexico about t ic purported autobiography and that. Airs, van Pcllandt went with him. However, the singer says she Imows of no way Irving could have met Hughes in Mexico because she was never away from Irving more than 90 minutes on the trip. LOVE HAS LIMITS "He loves me; he has asked me to marry htm and I am sure that, is why he thought I would stand by she told reporters Friday as she arrived in London with her manager, John Marshall. "I never met Howard Hughes and I'm inclined to Ihhik now that Clifford has not she said. Irving, 41, is married to fourth wife, a Swiss artist. Mrs. van Pellandl, 39, has been separated from her second husband since I9G9 when she and Irving met on the Spanish island oE Ibiza, where both have homes. The singer said she and Marshall will fly to New York next week, possibly Tuesday, to testify before the grand jury. Former Hughes aide John Meier told the jury Friday he could tell by reading the manuscript whether the purported autobiography was authentic and offered fo do so. SUSKIND IS CALLED There were also these developments in the case: -Richard R. Suskirid, Irving's researcher in gathering the Hughes material, was subpoenaed at his home on the Spanish island of Majorca to appear Monday before Ihe panel.

ACCOUNT IS FROZEN McGraw-Hill, which planned to publish the pin-ported autobiography, said Swiss police had, at its request, frozen an account in Ihe Union Bank o( Switzerland in Zurich. A highly placed bank source said police acted on the theory that the account contained some of the still missing out of the S550.000 McGraw-Hill intended to pay Hughes for publishing rights. The source said, however, that the account had not been opened by Irving's wife, who has been linked with hvo other Zurich accounts previously frozen in the case.
