Calgary MP accuses parties in reporter bribery case By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) Liberal and Social Credit MPs want a quick end to the Commons in- quiry into alleged bribery of reporters by politicians, Har- vie Andre Centre) said Thursday.

He also accused Conser- vative MPs of "cowardice to some extent" for not pursuing the issue more vigorously in the Commons privileges com- mittee. The committee is con- ducting the investigation into the bribery allegations, made last month by Social Credit Leader Real Caouette. Conservative MPs are afraid they will be accused of "going against Quebec" if they fan the issue, Mr. Andre said.

Sixty of the 141 Liberals in the Commons and all 11 Social Credit MPs are from Quebec. Only three of the 95 Conser- valive MPs come from Quebec. The inquiry was ordered by the Commons in December after Mr. Caouette admitted bribing two reporters and ac- cused MPs in other parties of doing the same. So far, only one witness has appeared before the com- mittee, Roch LaSalle He was nam- ed by Mr. Caouette as one MP the Social Credit leader suspected of paying the press. Mr. LaSalle denied ever paying for news coverage and Mr. Caouelte said afterward he made the allegation in jest. The Social Credit leader was invited to testify last week but entered hospital for tests and sent a letter instead. It did not name the reporters he says he bribed nor did it shed new light 'on his allegations. He was released from hospi- tal at the end of the week. The committee accepted his letter as adequate explanation and ordered a four-member subcommittee to prepare a re- port on the issue for the full Commons. The report is expected to conclude that Mr. Caouette breached no parliamentary rules by his remarks, and to recommend that the matter be dropped. Testimony by other witnesses is possible but appears unlikely. Committee chairman Rod Blaker (L-Montreal Lachine- Lakeshore) said Thursday the onus is on witnesses to come forward voluntarily if they have information. He repeated an earlier in- vitation for witnesses to come forward including MPs, members of the public and reporters in the 160-member Parliamentary Press Gallery, Press gallery officials com- plained originally that all re- porters were smeared by the Caouette allegations and the air should be cleared.

Controversial priest defies Pope's order VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul has ordered Rev. Hans Kung, challenger of the 104-year-old dogma of papal infallibility, to stop teaching opinion contrary to Roman Catholic Church doctrine. The controversial Swiss theologian 'retorted thai he will stand by his beliefs. "I will not be restrained from Fulfilling my theological service for humanity in critical solidarity with the Catholic Church in ecumenical Father Kung said in a statement issued at his office at Tuebi- ngen University in Tuebingen, West Germany. The Vatican said the order had been approved by Pope Paul after a six-year investigation of two books by Father Church, and Infallibility? An Inquiry. It was the severest dis- ciplinary measure against a theologian by the Vatican in 20 years. The dogma of papal in- fallibility decreed at the Vati- can ecumenical council in 1870 holds that the Pope cannot err in defining a doctrine of Chris1 tian faith or rule of morals when speaking in his official character of supreme pontiff. Father Kung, 46, said' the reprimand is a "public confes- sion that the secret Vatican inquiry against him proved unfeasible and was ended." "Such inquisitional proceed- ings also contradict the New Testament human rights and the spirit of the Holy Year of Father Kung said. He said he had asked for a fair trial in Rome but was denied a proceeding under just and human conditions." Father Kung said he is "not concerned with being adjudg- ed in the right against Rome and" the bishops in the controversial questions of in- fallibility and the church order. The question is not who is right but what is right." Father Kung argues that in- fallibility belongs only to God, and that the church legitimately can claim only "indefectibility or perpetuity of the despite momen- tary errors it may make. "The Bible promises that the Spirit will keep the church faithful to the truth of the gos- without but in spite of all errors. The Vatican announced the Pope's decision through a dec- laration by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the body in charge of fighting heresy and errors in the Roman Catholic Church. The 800-word document de- scribed Father Kung's opinions as "errors" and added: "However, despite the gravity of these opinions, since in a letter of Sept. 4, 1974, he does not rule out at all the possibility after an ade- quate lime of indepth harmonizing his opinions with the doctrines of the authentic teaching authority of the church, this 'sacred cbngregation on the mandate of the supreme pon- tiff Paul VI, for the time being warns Prof. H. Kung not to continue teaching Ihese opinions and reminds him that church authorities have en- trusted him the office of teaching theology in the spirit of Ihc doctrine of the church OPEN CAMPAIGN HEADQUARTERS for The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE DICK JOHNSTON P.O.
