The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta M, 1W4 TIM ItTIWUOat HMAlO-t Nixon's twelve crises... ...Watergate Tearing at a country's soul Tenth a series It began with the break-in of the Democratic party head- quarters and, as scandal after scandal unraveled, it came to include corporate contributions, laundered money the notorious "Huston Plan" for a White House- iY DRY CLEAN 2834 South Drive 12INQLI8 WASHERS PIlM 25 Ib. WASHER 6INGLIS DRYERS QUALITY DRY CLEANING by the load 327-0811 directed illegal secret police operation, the revelation that Nixon had secretly recorded all his White House conver- sations and a host of other alleged improprieties and il- legalities. "Crisis can indeed be an agony. But it is the exquisite agony which a man might not want to experience again yet would not for the world have missed But a nation that lives from crisis to crisis is in danger of straining its spirit and tearing its soul.. and in today's world, there are limits on the extent to which we or any other nation can af- ford crisis politics at home." Richard Nixon wrote those words three years before tthe torturous, slow-motion explo- sion of events, collectively called began to tear the soul of America. While the Watergate affair actually began in June, 1972, the affair did not become a "Nixon Crisis" until March, 1973, when James McCord, one of the burglary defen- dants, wrote a letter to Judge John Sirica implicating a number of White House per- sonnel in the Watergate mis- sion and its subsequent cover- up. The nation was further rock- ed when John Dean, a former counsel to the President, told the Senate Ervin Committee in June that Nixon knew about the cover-up as early as September, 1972. When another aide abrupt'y announced in July that Nixon had recorded all conver- sations in his offices, a fight ensued between Congress, the courts, the special prosecutor and the White House, for possession of the tapes. One casualty of the battle was Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox whom Nixon fired, despite earlier assurances of Cox's because Cox refused a compromise on the tapes. While Nixon's popularity plummeted to a new low of 27 per cent, a disbelieving nation shook its head at White House claims that key tapes had been lost or never existed in the first place. Pilotage authorities may lose struggle with Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) The transport department and marine pilotage authorities across the country are in a struggle which observers here say the pilotage agencies are likely to lose. Key issues in the dispute are marine safety, uniformity of regulations in Canadian waters and the autonomy of pilotage authorities. Pilotage authorities, which are Crown corporations, have broad powers to make their own broad in the eyes of transport depart- ment officials. They say some authorities have "thumbed their noses" at a government request for uniform regulations in Canadian waters. This has prompted Transport Minister Jean Marchand to order changes in some proposed regulations and to request a review of pilotage legislation. Department sources say they favor tightening the minister's control over the authorities. The Pilotage Act, which took effect Feb. 1, 1972, created four authori- ties Atlantic, based at Halifax; Laurentian at Montreal; Great Lakes at Cornwall, Ont.; and Pacific at Vancouver. They develop and enforce regulations and set pilotage tariffs. They also are concerned with certifying and licensing pilots. The authorities continued using the old department regulations for pilotage 'certificates and licenses and requirements for using pilots while they worked out their own rules.

Britain's economic crisis has brought a serious shortage of soda water at The Eagle and at many other pubs throughout the country. As a mix, it is considered essential to the whisky and well-being of thousands of better-off' Britons. The barmaid, Lucy, says the first reaction of the "whisky brigade" was to switch to gin- and-tonic, traditionally a drink more favored by women. But then the tonic, too, ran out. "Now they come in for a quiet pint like regular lads and instead of getting stewed and babbling all night, they take time out to chat us up a bit. Some of them are turning into quite nice fellas." Lucy allowed, however, that a good proportion of whisky- drinkers favor their beverage straight and for them, nothing has changed. The Eagle is in Baling, a stuck-together, middle-class suburb on the western edge of London where the problems of the economy rank well behind the price of babies' diapers. Such things as the energy shortage, the three-day work week and the balance of payments deficit seem little more than minor in- conveniences. PROBLEMS MULTIPLY But even here, where most men are office workers and manage to stay on the job five days a week by doing without light or heat for part of the time, the problems are becoming difficult to ignore. Virtually nobody is suffer- ing seriously from the crisis, although the local family plan- ning agency is worried that the early shutdown of televi- sion at each night may contribute to a baby boom. Housewives, however, are finding it more and more diffi- cult to get such non-essential items as frozen, concentrated orange juice because of a shortage of cans. And the problems are growing Toilet tissue and candy are also scarce in some areas, the result of an overheated econ- omy bringing a growing ex- cess of demand over available supply. Shoppers at the Marks and Spencer retail store, known as the value-for-money outlet, have been stunned by sudden price increases of up to 25 per cent on some items. A cotton shirt, for example, shot up to 17.70 from overnight. Many customers are leaving the store empty-handed in protest. More serious is a threatened shortage of milk bottles which, the authorities say, may lead to serious interrup- tions of deliveries soon unless more people return their emp- ties.
