The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Nixon's twelve crises An angry loser Sixth of a series Richard Nixon's sixth crisis the intensely fought presidential campaign of 1960 was more than a single challenge confronted and conquered. It was a series of decisions and crises. Yet, in Nixon's view, it was only a handful of events and decisions that caused his defeat. The Kennedy-Nixon campaign introduced televised debates into presidential campaigns. Sen. Henry M. Jackson, then Democratic National Chairman, saw Nixon's decision to debate "the biggest single factor in his defeat." While most commentators felt Nixon held his own over the four debates, it was the first one with an audience of 80 million viewers that seemed the turn- ing point. On camera, Nixon appeared haggard and drawn, an appearance which apparently alienated many voters. Nixon, himself, concluded later that He had spent too much time on substance and not enough on appearance, not realizing that one bad makeup job could influence millions of votes. Reflecting in "Six Nixon also felt he had devoted too much time to local appearances instead of concentrating on a media campaign which would have reached more voters. He also felt that a post- convention Congressional session had been engineered by Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson to tie him to Washington while Kennedy was free to travel around the country. While Nixon has denied it, there seems little doubt that he was hurt both personally and politically by Eisenhower's minimal support for his campaign. At one point, when reporters asked Eisenhower what ma- jor policy ideas Nixon had contributed to his ad- ministration, he replied: "If you give me a week I might think of one, a remark Nixon later excused as a clumsy attempt at sarcasm. Following his loss in 1960, Nixon wrote: "I have never had much sympathy for the point of view (which says) 'it isn't whether you win or lose that counts, but how you play the game.'

Metis promised housing program OTTAWA (CP) Metis and non-status Indians will have an operative housing program before the end of the year, says Tony Belcourt, president of the Native Council of Canada. He told a news conference Friday that Central Mortage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) will present a "range of op- tions" on housing to the coun- cil within the next few weeks. The news conference follow- ed meetings with CMHC President William Teron and other officials. Mr. Belcourt described the meetings as "bitter" and "frustrating." He said the council, representing about Metis and non-status Indians, is not totally satisfied with the proposed policy but it "is better than nothing. The council had presented a brief to the federal govern- ment late last year calling for a five-year program to provide up to homes. Mr. Belcourt said the "range of options" would be presented to cabinet represen- tatives by CMHC for approval in principle. The options then would be revealed to the native council for study and, if acceptable, referred back to full cabinet for final approval. He said the topic of funding was not discussed. "The position we are in is that we will not accept cabinet proposals or policy without prior he said. "Teron moved a long way from where he was.... He turned around and backed down." The council met with CMHC representatives Friday in an effort to patch up differences incurred last fall over the fir- ing of Walter Rudnicki and the breakdown of talks on native Mr. Rudnicki, formerly re- sponsible for CMHC native housing programs, was fired by Mr. Teron for, according to the president, showing a con- fidential cabinet document to persons outside the government.

Paralysed youth seeks treatment in Leningrad TORONTO (CP) Edgar Reiprich, 17, of Toronto, paralysed from the waist down since a motorcycle acci- dent in left for the Soviet Union Saturday to see doctors there in the hope they may be able to give him back the use of his legs. The Polenov Neurosurgical Institute in Leningrad has agreed to examine the youth and operate if necessary, without charge. "I don't know if there is go- ing to be an operation at all, he said from his stretcher aboard the plane Saturday. "A lot of research has to be done first." Mr. and Mrs. Reiprich began corresponding with the Leningrad institute more than a year ago after reading of a paralysed West German youth who was able to walk with crutches after surgery there. When Edgar was accepted in December, Toronto doctors warned the family that they would be wasting money, but they finally mailed the re- quired medical records to Leningrad. Most of the needed for the trip has been donated by well-wishers.
