Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-23,Lethbridge, Alberta IS-THC LETHBRIDGE HERALD—WtÒiiMday. January 23,1974 Nixon’s twelve crises. . The last press conference ‘You won’t have Nixon to kick around Sev«th of a series Two years after his defeat by John P. Kennedy, Richard Nixon set out to wrest the governorship of California from Democratic incumbent Edmund <Pat) Brown. After a parUcularly bitter campaif^. Brown won by about 300,000 votes. For some hoars after the results were In, Nixon closeted himself in a hotel suite away from the waiting press. Finally he came downstairs and delivered what he called his "last press conference,” including a vindictive diatribe that startled reporters. “Now all the members of the press are so delighted that I have lost,” he said, .. as I leave the press, all I can say is this- for 16 years, ever since the Hiss case, you’ve had a lot of — a lot of fun — you’ve had an opportunity to attacit me and I think I’ve given as good as I’ve Uken... And I can only say thank Ck)d for television and radio for keeping the newsipapers a little more honest. .. Just think ho;w much you’re go ing to be missing - . . Vou won’t have Nixon to kick anjund any more . . . (The press has) a right and a responsibihty if they’re against a candidate, to give him the shaft, but also recognize that if they give him the shaft, put one lonely reporter on the campaign who will report what the candidate says now attd then.” A footnote — perhaps prophetic — to the 1962 campaign surfaced several years later when Judge Byron Arnold found Nixon and his then-campaign aide, H. R. Haldeman, personally guilfy of campaign “dirty tricks.” According to a “discovery” — a declaratory judgment — by Judge Arnold, Nixon and Haldeman sent post cards to 500,000 registered California Democrats soliciting money and urging them to vote against Brown. What was fraudulent about the mailing was that it purported to come from a Democratic source. There was no Indication that it came from the Nixon camp. Next: Cambodia. Ganada-U.S. Arctic gas line urged by interior secretary WASHINGTON (CP) -Interior SecreUry Rogers Morton wants to start consideration of a possible joint Canada-United States pipeline to pump naUiral gas from the Arctic. Morton told a reporter that be may air the idea when Enewnr Minister Donald Macdonald arrives here for talks with White House energy ad viser William Simon Jan. 31. Mortm said be may invite himself to the talks. A spokesman for his department said today that Morton’s participation in the talks is under active consideration though no definite decision has been reached, “The secretary has been doing bis homework and will be briefed on the general subject of the Ganada-U.S. eneri situation before the end of month,” the spokesman said. A spdtesman fqi‘ the Canadian embassy said, however, that the embassy has not been made aware of Morton’s wishes and it will be up to Simon to decide whether Mortm should be invited. Although Morton’s deoart^ ment has been overshadowed Skylab gyro falters, survey off HOUSTON (AP) -TheSky-lab 3 astronauts cancelled an earth-resources survey today as an ailing gyroscope faltered three times and threatened to break down. Even If the stabilizing device did fail, Mission Control said backup control systems would enable Gerald Carr, William Pogue and Edward Gibsim to complete their 84-day mission. But experiments would have to be curtailed. They were in the 6Sth day of the mission-Flight director Neil Hutchinson called off the earth-resources pass over the United States after the gyroscope, a spinning wheel used to manoeuvre the Skylab space station, exhibited its third fluctuation of the morning and lOth in four days. The pass would have placed added stress on the gyro. One of the three ^os used to control the position of the space station already has failed, and officials said the increase in variations raised the chance that the second gyro would fail. If it does fail, the astronauts immediately would shift control of the statiwi to a gas thruster system in the Apollo ferry ship docked to one end of the tlS-foot-long station. This is the craft intended to bring the spacemen back to earth Feb. 8. The space station also has a backup control system of its own. Officials said there Is enough gas aboah) to complete the remaining 16 days of the mission if nothing else goes wrong. But the astronauts would not be able to conduct solar astronomy, earth resources or other experiments that require manoeuvres. the new Federal Ener;gy Ice under Simon, Morton said in the interview that it is still his department’s "massive responsibility” to increase the country’s coal, oil and gas resources. The department leased about one million acres of federal offshore areas for oil and gas ^velopment last year and Morton had planned to increase the leasing rate to three million acres a year by 1978. Now, Morton said, he expects the rate to reach that three-miUion-acre mark this year, then perhaps jump to five million in 1975 and rise to 10 million acres a year “for a couple of years thereafter. ’ ’ Asked whether companies have begun to enquire seriously about a second pipeline from the Arctic, Morton said; “No, but we’re collecting ideas on bow to handle the natural gas from Alaska’s North Slope. Maybe I better go up and see Macdonald and see what the Canadian position is right about now." “I guess what we’ve got to know is what the Canadians want to do.
