Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-24,Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE UTHIRIDOE HERALD - Thundiy, January 24, 1«74 Morgan believes Nixon will be ‘impeached’ NEW YORK (AP) - The Wall Street Journal says Edward Morgan, who resigned last week from a top United States treasury department it, does not think President Ixon will escape impeachment.    ! Morgan believes that Egil (Bud) Krogh. a close friend and former presidential aide, will "spill his guts” about the operation of the so-called plumbers unit created by the White House to plug security leaks, The Journal reports. "Bud’s confession- and the tape erasures (related to the Watergate political espionage scandal) will probably do th« president in,” The Journal quotes Morgan as saying in a Washington interview following his surprise resignation last Friday. “The tanks are coming. They're coming right down Pennsylvania Avenue and into the (White House) Oval Office. If you think 1973 was bad, wait until Christmas 1974 rolls around. You’ll think last year was a holiday.” Morgiin, 35, a lawyer who joined the Nixon administration in 1969, was a White House aide when he signed Nixon’s deed for his controversial contribution of his vicfrpresidential papers to the National Archives in 1969. GOT TAX DEDUCTION The gift resulted in a $576,000 tax deduction for the president, giving him a tax saving of at least f200,000. The gift and Morgan’s role in it are under investigation by the Internal Revenue Seivice and a joint SenateHotise of Representatives committee on internal revenue taxation. Morgan gave up his post as assistant treasury secretary in part because of the controversy over whether the deed was properly drawn and whether it was signed on the date it was supposed to have been signed. iXfeJikmjd/ UP, UP.

Emperor^ wife to mark 50th wedding anniversary By IAN MacKENZIE TOKYO (Reuter) - The golden wedding anniversary of Japan’s Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako Saturday will be mainly a family affair. The 124th emperor of Japan, supposedly descended in an unbroken line from the sun goddess Amaterasu Omikami, is the longest reigning emperor in modem history and the first to celebrate 50 years of married life. On Saturday morning, Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka and other government officials and dignitaries will visit the moat'Surrounded imperial palace in the heart of Tokyo to offer their congratulations. There will be a family lunch, an afternoon display of court dancinjg and then a family dinner with Crown Prince Akihito, his wife Princess Michiko, and their children. Well-wishers can sign a book of congratulations at the imperial household agency during the day, but they are unlikely to catch a glimpse of the imperial couple. The emperor, 73, a distinguished marine biologist, undertook a series of Court abortion decision marked NEW YORK (AP) - Abortion supporters and opponents rallied, picketed, petitioned and staged symbolic funerals to mark the one-year anniversary of a Supreme Court decision which invalidated most antiabortion laws. In New York City, several hundred midtown Manhattan strollers crowded the steps of St. Patrick’s Cathedral as a feminist group crowned a woman “pope." The bogus pontiff then issued an “encyclical” denouncing “1,900 years of blasphemous sexist oppression by the Catholic Church." About 30 members of the New York chapter of the National Organization for Women demonstrated outside the Manhattan offices of Senator James Buckley, sponsor of an anti-abortion constitutional amendment. They carried chains and chanted; “Compulsory Childbirth Is Slavery for Women.” Terance Cardinal Cooke, the Catholic archbishop of New York, repeated his support for the Buckley amendment. About 10,000 persons gathered Tuesday at Independence Mall in Philadelphia for an anti-abortion rally sponsored by the National Right to Life Committee, pressing for a constitutional amendment that would overturn the high court's ruling. 'NOT CATHOLIC ISSUE’ John Cardinal Krol, Roman Catholic archbishop of Philadelphia, told the crowd: “No human has the right, the power, to say a human being is not worthy to life. A fetus is not a wart, not a tumor, it is not anything else but a human life. I do not stress it as a Catholic issue. This is a human issue.” Many at the demonstration wore black arm bands.' They carried signs reading “I'm Glad You Were Bom” and “Thank God Mary Didn’t Have an Abortion.” In Miami, members of a local Right to Life group, in more than 30 black-bannered cars, rode ‘slowly past the Date County abortion referral clinic at Jackson Memorial Hospital. “This is a day of national mourning,” said one demonstrator. “Since these babies killed by abortions are thrown in a garbage can and .later incinerated, having no funeral or even a burial, we are holding a symbolic funeral motorcade for them.” In Washington, D.C., hundreds of demonstrators took part in an anti-abortion March for Life that began and ended with speeches on the Capitol steps. Buckley urged the demonstrators to petition their legislators to seek discharge from committee of his amendment . Meanwhile, a coalition of proabortion groups held an interreligious service at St. Mark’s Church on Capitol Hill.

REMAINS ISOLATED But in recent years—except for a European tour in 1971 and a few ceremonial oc-casions~he has remained in virtual seclusion, partly for health reasons and partly because of government fears for his safety from left-wing fanatics. The seven-country tour in 1971 was only the second time the shy, Bespectacled emperor had left Japan. It was the first trip abroad for his self-effacing TOyear^old empress. In Tokyo, the emperor devotes much time to marine studies in his private laboratory. He is the author of eight books on the subject, while scholars have published another seven using material he gathered. He also enjoys collecting specimens during seaside holidays—but insists that marine creatures and plants he does not need are returned to their own habitat. "They have chosen their best surroundings after all," he has been quoted as saying. The empress, a talented musician, painter and rose-grower, is a close companion to the emperor and shares his interest in biology. PRAISED FOR ART She has helped to Illustrate her husband’s books and has also won acclaim for her traditional Japanese pain- Their wedding had been originally set for 1923, but the disastrous Tokyo earthquake ' of that year, in which more than 140,000 persons died, forced a postponement and they were married the following year. Of their seven children Crown Prince Akihito was the fifth born. The imperial couple remain largely cut oft from the ordinary Japanese people. They do make two regular appearances a year: On Jan. 2 during the New Year holiday and on the emperor’s birthday, April 29, which is a national holiday But even on those occasions they are separated from the crowds by 100 yards of open ground and a bullet proof glass screen,' Last year controversy surrounded the emperor for the first time since the end of the war—first over a government decision to at>andon plans for the emperor to visit the United States, and again over suspicions that the government was using his name for political purposes. The emperor had been reviled by the Allies during the war. but the U.S. occupation forces decided to retain the imperial system—although the emperor was given only a symbolic role to play.
