Mohammed Hassanein Heikal, who was removed recently as editor of Al Ahram by Egypt's President Anwar Sadat, says he began to differ with Sadat because he felt Nixon was too busy defending himself over Watergate FEBRUARY Love is A VALENTINE MESSAGE TO YOUR SWEETHEART IN THE HERALD'S CLASSIFIED VALENTINE'S DAY PAGE YOUR MESSAGE TO THAT SPECIAL SWEETHEART...

MAI CDUMLinl PHONE IN, WRITE IN, DWf IN... dittifM Dtpirtwwt The Lethbridge Herald Administrator denies concealing information SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) An administrator of Sudbury General Hospital denied Monday that the hospital attempted-to conceal information that oxygen and anesthetic nitrous oxide gas outlets had been crossed in four treatment rooms in a new wing. Juri Wallner, the hospital's associate director, was replying to lawyer Elmer Sopha during the inquest into 23 deaths at the hospital between last May and September. Mr. Sopha, representing relatives of five of the deceased, said Mr. Wallner did not notify the Sudbury coroner of the crossed lines because the hospital wanted to solve the problem itself. "You didn't want a said Mr. Sopha. "You were in a panic." "If you're saying there was a cover-up, that's not said Mr. Wallner. During the inquest, now in its fifth week, one of the deaths, that of six-year-old Catharine Dominic on ept. 7, has been blamed on the substitution of nitrous oxide for oxygen in the special procedures room of the new whig. That room was closed after, her death and samples from the gas outlets in it and the three other rooms were sent to Toronto for analysis. Mr. Wallner said he ordered the special procedures room reopened Sept. 14 because "my impression was that it was the gas machine that was being tested." The portable gas-adminis- tering machine in the special procedures room had been locked up at this time, he said. Mr. Wallner said that another patient received nitrous oxide instead of oxygen in the room Sept. 18 but doctors quickly removed the face mask "and thta recovered. On ept. 19 a dtctor tested the outlets by inhaling the gas in the one labelled oxygen and he turned blue. Mr. Wallner said it was then he learned of the crossed pipelines. Dr. Marcel Preyost, a Sud- bury coroner, testified earlier he did not hear of the switched lines in the four rooms until Sept. 21. That was the date the hospital received confirmation from tests of samples carried out in Toronto. Dr. Ross Bennett, Ontario's deputy chief coroner who is conducting the inquest, said Monday that he found it "unbelievable some action was not taken to notify the coroner" of the hospital's own investigations. Citizens draft power brief Four points for a draft brief were agreed on Monday at a meeting of an ad hoc citizens' group studying the proposed sale of the Lethbridge power plant to Calgary Power Ltd. The Power Plant Study Committee, which has about 12 members, .will submit its brief to the city for inclusion on the agenda at a public hearing Monday. The points'were first, that city council does not have enough information to make a decision on the power plant question; Second, there has been no recent independent study of the value of the present power plant; Third, if the plant is sold it should be sold as a business rather than just a physical entity; And finally, the matter should be settled by a referendum with all information available. Three unanswered questions remain under the first point, said group member Warren Caragata. The city's remaining ability to borrow money has not been determined, he said, nor has the possibility of grants from provincial or federal agencies for expansion of the plant or construction of a new plant been investigated. And he said the CH2M-Hill report did not give the assessed value of a new coal- fired thermal generating station in 1988. The cost of such a. project was considered, he said, but not its value as an asset. Under the second point, group members said they would like to know the effect of the contract signed with Calgary power in 1969 on present plans. Members said the Montreal Engineering Ltd. study of the present power plant was done for Calgary Power, and the present plant was not in the terms of reference of the CH2M-HU1 report. Sam Kounosu, a University of Lethbridge physics professor, said the question of the sale should be submitted to a referendum not only because of the principle that all citizens of Lethbridge are shareholders in the plant, but also because the remaining questions must be answered first. Some group members said they would present briefs of their own at the public hearing. Police continue investigation of break-ins Police are still investigating a rash of service station break-ins which apparently took place early Monday morning. Three break-ins had been reported at 8 a.m. Monday. Another was reported a little later. Someone entering Lakeview Texaco by way of a window made off with about cash from the till. The other service stations broken into were Gulf Service Centre, Alcan Service Station and Green Acres Turbo. The Gulf station lost in cash, the Alcan station lost and a three-quarter ton service truck and the Green Acres station found only a gallon of anti-freeze missing. Police believe the break-ins were done by the same persons. Entertainer's son indicted WASHINGTON (AP) A federal grand jury has indicted Dean Martin Jr., a con of the entertainer, for unlawful possession of firearms, the justice department said.
