Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMdiy, July 1C, IfTB TW UTHMIDOI WASHINGTON (AP) At first, the unravelling of the saga of Watergats came bit by bit, each new clue serving to re- kindle the suspense. But now the answers are coming in a flood of disclosure and contradiction. Tbe key is- sue still is: what did Richard Nixon know and when? Here, in chronological order, is a look at the major parts of the disputed by tbe principals gathered from Senate testi- mony, news accounts and gov- ernment investigators: Ju. 27, eral John Mitchell, White House counsel John Dean and presi- dential aide Jeb Stuart Magr Returning the Hre A youth, identified as an anti-marxist takes aim with o slingshot pointed toward office windows in downtown Santiago, Chile. The situation became confused as unidentified persons began throwing debris from the buildings in the busi- ness area during; ti demonstration for striking copper miners.__________________ 'Gangster answer' clainu NEW YORK (AP) Prince Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia is quoted in Newsweek maga- zine as saying that President Nixon gave him "a gangster an- swer" when he proposed peace talks. The magazine says Sihanouk told a Swedish correspondent in Bucharest, Romania, that Nixon bad answered: "Go and talk to Lon Nol in Phnom Penh, ask him to pardon you and nego- tiate.. This was a true gang- ster answer." Lon Nol is the currant ruler of the Southeast Asian state v.hich Nixon has U.S. congres- sional permission to bomb until Aug. 15. The prince, just returned to his Peking home from a trip to Bucharest, is quoted in News- week as saying before he left Romania that his forces in Cambodia have tba plan, man- power and strength to attack Phnom Penh now "But if we attacked today the U.S. B-52s are mating raids, the capital would be de- stroyed I think our general staff will wait until the dry sea- son, which starts between No- vember and December, and I can tiisdos? to you that some- thing very important will occur in the coining dry season.

Well, it would be another mi- nority government, this time with Roman Catholics in office. This denomination can claim 93 declared members among the 264 MPs. And presumably tbe United Church with 39 members would form the official opposition, al- though tbe 44 MPs who don't list any affiliation in tbe Parlia- mentary Guide coidd conceiv- ably band together and become an independent official opposi- tion. However, internal bicker- ing would almost certainly de- stroy this group. So disregarding the 44 inde- pendents, tbe Anglicans with 36 members would be a strong third a couple of conversions away from the offi- cial Opposition. It's not difficult to imagine the pressure that would be ex- erted on the 11 MPs who list themselves as Protestant. These, incidentally, include En- vironment Minister Jack Davis and Defence Minister James Richardson. The two members who list themselves as is Solicitor-General Warren At be open to an even wider field of negotiation. If the United Churchmen and Anglicans decided to vote against the 95 Catholics, they would need only tbe support of the 15 Presbyterians and seven Abortionist ends career because challenge gone C7 Baptists But quite apart from tbe 44 independents, the various splinter parties could throw any voting into turmoil, especially 11 the 11 Protestants stayed away from organized parties. Tbe five Jewish members might end up with the balance of power, or even the three Lu- therans, or the two Unitarians or the two Greek Orthodox members It can be assumed there are two members of the Greek Or- thodox faith, although the Par- liamentary Guide, haunted by typographic! errors, lists Wil- liam Skoreyko East) as "Creek Orthodox." In such a religious House of minorities, Walter Dinsdale would be the only Salvation Army mem- ber; Jake Epp chur) would be the one-man representative of the Mennonite Brethren, and Alex Patterson (PC Fraser Valley East) would be tbe lone representa- tive of the Church cf the Naza- rene. Only the Catholics now are represented in an four politica parties. If a Catholic government managed to get legislation through tbe House, it could run into severe trouble in the Sen- ate, where tbe 35 Catholics there would also be in a pre- carious situation. Out of the 91 senators now in the chamber, there are 15 Ang- licans. 15 members of the United Church, 11 independents four Presbyterians, three Bap- tists, three members of the Jewish .faith, three Protestants i one Christian and one Ukrai- nian Catholic. A religious Parliament coulc spend an entire session select- ing a neutral Speaker.

Heat wave cuts power BOSTON (AP) Cooler weather was forecast today in the northeastern United States, promising relief from a heat wave tiiat led to power reduc- tions and caused New England utilities to appeal for voluntary cuts in electricity usage. Temperatures reached 95 de- grees in Boston and 94 in New York City Monday as power pools covering New York and six New England states reduced voltage by five per cent. Aggravating the power squeeze were widespread gener- ator troubles hi New England and scattered cable and trans- former failures that temporar- ily cut off power for thousands of families. A spokesman for the New England Power Exchange said that, because of equipment problems and scheduled mainte- nance, 14 generator units were not in service, reducing the amount of power available to the region's utilities by 26 per cent. ASKS FOR CUTS For the first time since a pro- cold wave in the winter of "t i, the New England power pool broadcast an appeal that customers avoid unnecessary usa of electricity. A transformer burn-out in South Boston left 800 families without power more than four hours. Other power failures oc- curred in suburban Everett and Framingham Center, Mass.
