Observers are comparing it in scope with the Teapot Dome oil scandal during the Harding administration of 1923. Involved here is the integrity of the electoral process, a battle against White House executive privilege and preservation of the sanctity of the constitution. But it's also the type of scandal that may have more impact in a historical sense than it does among the public right now. The U.S. public is traditionally slow to react to scandal but those close to the scene suggest that reaction may eventually come decisively. A parallel in Canadian politics would be the pipeline debate of the mad-1950s which appeared to gather little interest among the public for some time but which became a prime reason behind the fall of the Liberal government in 1957. ENVIED RESIDENCE Watergate is a scandal which takes its name from a rich fortress of condominiums, business blocks and stylish shops. Just as Georgetown, with its narrow streets and quaint, remodelled townhouses, was the place to live during the Kennedy yeai^s, so Watergate became the "in" place during the Nixon administration. Looming downtown near the State department, Watergate is sleek and expensive. President Nixon's private secretary lived there. Martha Mitchell-wife of the former attorney-general- made some of her most famous phone calls from their Watergate home. One of the business blocks in the complex contained offices of the Democratic party. On June 17, 1972, five men were arrested inside Democratic headquar-'ters. Three months later, they and two former White House aides were indicted hi what', has become known as the Watergate bugging case. Last month, five pleaded guilty and two others were convicted of all charges against them. SUSPICION REMAINS .. Supsequently, the Senate voted to set up an investigative sub-committee. Trial Judge John Sirica, a registered Republican, said he hopes the Senate can "get to the bottom of this case." because he is not satisfied the full story came out in his courtroom. That's what the Inquiry-under tough, veteran Senator Sam J. Ervin, a Democrat from North Carolina-has been set up to do. The Washington Post, commenting in an editorial, says: "The central issue ... is re-establishment and protection of the integrity of the electoral process. But, beyond that, there is the issue of credibility of the government about what we have been told and the integrity of the investigations which have taken place." The Ervin committee has wide powers to look into all facets of the 1972 election campaign and bring out wrongdoing no matter which party is affected. His committee of seven may recommend "appropriate action" to the Senate in cases of "willful failure or refusal of any person to appear" before it. INTEGRITY CHALLENGED . This is interpreted as the first actual test by this Congress to force testimony from close presidential advisers, should they claim immunity under what is called "executive privilege." The Ervin committee is made up of four Democrats and three Republicans. The Republicans demand equal representation and widening of the inquiry terms to take in elections back to 1964. Success of the inquiry may rest on the political integrity of Senator Ervin, but already cries of "witch hunt" are being heard, Ervin Is 76 and his hair is white, but don't let that fool you. He has an unabashed reverence for the U.S. constitution and as he seas it, all matters under investigation touch in some way on the rights and privileges granted of the constitution. In the Senate for nearly 20 powerful and respected legislators in Washington. And he has had experience with witch hunts. Early in his senatorial career, Ervin was one of those credited with bringing down communist-fighting Senator Joseph McCarthy and helping to end the terrorizing of federal workers. Budget to decide fate of government Turner in public spotlight OTTAWA (CP) - John Turner, finance minister and runner-up Liberal party leader, is going to carry either the kudos or the can for the 1973 version of the Liberal government. On Monday night, Feb. 19 at 8 o'clock, what Mr. Turner has in a new budget for Canadians is going to decide whether the Liberal government lives or dies. If it dies, of course, Prime Minister Pierre-Elliott Trudeau, the man who defeated Mr. Turner for the leadership in 1968, comes back into the spotlight. He'll hav� to decide whether his government abdicates in favor of a Conservative regime or whether it has the popular clout to call another election without giving the Conservatives a chance to govern. If it lives, however, Mr. Turner will have to be given a big dollop of credit for walking the tightrope between the demands put before the present Liberal minority government by the New Democratic Party on the one hand, the cushion for PELLETIER - Isaac Reni, passed away in Lethbridge on Monday, February 12, 1973, at the age of 74 years, beloved husband of the late Mrs. Jane Pelletier.

C7275 Overseas travellers cautioned TORONTO A foreign exchange dealer says Canadians travelling overseas should "load up on foreign currency rather than take airy chances with the U.S. dollar." Fred Hirschler, manager of Deak and Co. (Ontario) Ltd., said in an interview that it will probably take "quite some time" before the exchange rate on the dollar stabilizes with foreign currencies. 0 "In the meantime, the traveller will find he will be quoted all kinds of rates." He warned that people "will continue to take advantage of th situation for as long as there is no stability." Mr. Hirschler said he feels fee devaluation of the U.S. dollar "is merely the first develop, ment for world currencies." "Perhaps later in the week we will be hearing some additional developments as individual countries realign their currency." the Liberals in the present House, and the Conservatives. Is it possible, with Conservatives nakedly hungry for power and the NDP committed to reducing what leader David Lewis calls the "corporate rip-off" of other taxpayers, to steer a course between the shoals? Only Feb. 19 will tell. And Mr. Trudeau has tended to leave the whole bag to Mr. Turner. Before then probably in mid-week the treasury will present its annual spending estimates for the year starting April 1. Mr. Turner has several hangups to deal with. His first budget as finance minister, last May 8, pledged corporation tax reductions and a boost, through faster write-offs, of eventual corporation profits of Canadian manufacturing concerns. This was a move to create more jobs in Canada, a thorny problems for the Liberals who have seen unemployment running between six and seven per cent of the labor force throughout the last year. But that, plus the fact that Mr. Turner last May proposed to let a three-per-cent tax cut on personal income taxes run out as of Jan. l in the 1973 tax year, provided election campaign ammunition for both the NDP and the Conservatives. New Democrats said the government was socking it to the wage-earner and giving the corporations a relatively free ride. Conservatives argued that general tax cuts, for the individual as well as the corporation, were mandatory to give the economy a lift. Reduction of personal taxes, at least up to the three-per-cent level and possibly beyond, is considered a minimum move if the government is to survive the new budget. A sweetner that could lure the NDP in is proposed increases in the old age pension, which the government has said will be boosted. But the nuts and bolts of the whole equation have basically been left up to Mr. Turner, who finished second to Mr. Trudeau in the Liberal party leadership race in 1968. I The finance department is considered a killing ground for potential party leaders because the government cannot make a tax move that doesn't get somebody's hackles up. If Mr. Turner manges to tread this particular tightrope, however, he could come up looking like prime leadership material. Churchill slept in the nude VANCOUVER (CP) - A U.S. heart specialist recalled a 20-day period he spent with Winston Churchill in an anecdote told to delegates to a cardiac symposium here. Dr. Charles Rob, chairman of the surgery department of the University of Rochester's School of Medicine, Rochester, N.Y., was one of the pioneers in arterial surgery when he was called in for consultation at No. 10 Downing St. after Churchill suffered a stroke. His story bore out Churchill's statement that "all babies look like me." '"For 20 days I saw Churchill every morning before lie got up," Dr. Rob told the delegates. "He always slept in the nude, and naked he did, indeed, look just like a fat baby. "Upon awakening he would call for his valet who would come into the room with a tray bearing a beaker of brandy, a large cigar, a plate of scrambled eggs and coffee. "Qiurehill would light up the cigar, drain half the beaker of brandy and then he would be fortified to face the new day." Dr. Rob recalled that there was always a small budgie bird in the English leader's bedroom. "Churchill would eat lis eggs, drink his coffee and then relight his cigar while finishing his brandy. "The budgie would watch him until the cigar was re-lit, then he'd hop up onto Churchill's shoulder and from there to the cigar, and hang there, balance between Churchill's mouth and the cigar's smouldering end. "Never once," Dr. Rob concluded, "did I see that bird even get one feather singed." $3 gasoline forecast JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) Representative John P. Saylor (Rep. Pa.) says the United States can expect gasoline rationing within the near future and that, according to his estimate, the price of a gallon of gas will shoot up to $3 within the next five years. "We will soon see rationing the likes of which the world has never known," said Saylor. "It's the law of supply and demand." Saylor, responding to questions regarding comments he made earlier, said: "There's just not enough gas, not enough oil in the world to satisfy the needs of our country the way we've grown." He said he was basing his predictions on his years as a member of the House of Representatives interior and insular affairs committee. Wednesday., February 14, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 29 'Understanding should precede development' OTTAWA - Operations and] planning for "resource exploitation, transportation corridors and centres of population" in the North should not proceed ahead of "man's understanding in the North" or the establishment and use of "effective mechanisms to provide protection where necessary," a Science Council report warns. "Misguided exploitation of minerals, petroleum and water have already caused damage and threaten to destroy the resources upon which existing communities (in the North) depend" the Science Council explains. "During the past two or three years we have become aware that our knowledge of the North is inadequate." And "crash programs" to collect badly needed information, "often after development decisions have been made," will neither relieve the knowledge deficiency nor provide strong foundations for a sound development policy for the North, the Science Council says. Sustained research support to provide the needed understanding of the North should be increased "substantially to offset the increasing pressure to capitalize on short-term profits by immediate exploitation," the council adds. With all the above, the Science Council is in effect calling for a halt to oil and gas exploration and exploitation and to the construction of the Mackenzie Valley corridor until appropriate rather than crash research programs can be launched and finished, to provide an adequate understanding of the North and to allow adequate protection against damage to the Northern system. On the topic of oil and gas, the Science Council also concludes that the National Energy Board, through its rulings to restrict the export of gas (and soon possibly of oil) from Alberta, has in fact led to the development of a serious federal-provincial conflict. "Clearly, some neutral forum where such conflicts can be resolved is desperately required," the report says. The failure of the energy board has been that it has not provided Alberta with an alternative to the export market and that it has not convinced Albertans that the federal policy to restrict export of natural gas from Canada is wisest, the Science Council suggests in its report on resource development policies. The report also calls for more realistic measures of the environmental costs of resource exploitation and of the use and benefits of conservation in Ca-ada, as a matter or urgency. It concludes that the existing Canadian Council of Resource and Environment Ministers should be strengthened and renamed a National Resource Management Authority, which should be designed to hear the concerns of all citizens and groups and should develop and co-ordinate long-range policies for integraVd management of resources and the environment. And, in order to ensure more benefits flowing from export of r es ou r c e s the government might consider such things as increasing the rate of royalties, or placing an export tax on resources flowing out of Canada.
