North West Mounted Po- lice, later to become the RCMP, arrived at Fort Whoop- Up in letMiridge Oct. and at Fort Madeod, 30 miles to the west .four days later. Frank Smith, publicity offi- cer for the local group, made the postponement announce- ment today on behalf of pres- ident George Brown. Mr. Smith said this year's pageant was to be a toy-out for next year's pageant, 1974 being the centennial of the arri- val of the force in Alberta. "What we had originally planned was to stage a small- er pageant this year, the cen- tennial year of the RCMP, and a repeat performance next year, the centennial year of the NWMP's arrival in Alberta." "We have decided not to have a try-out pageant this year so all efforts can be di- verted to preparing for next year's Mr. Smith said.

LetUbridqe Herald VOL. LXVI No. 180 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1973 TEN CENTS TWO PAGES Father and son Greater farm output needed OTTAWA (CP) Western agricultural expansion Bepends on more intensive use of land and livestock plus stabilized production, prices and markets? the gov- ernment says. In a background paper prepared, for the July 24-26 Calflary conference on western economic, opportunities, fhtfejeovenurient blames uncertain markets, fluctuating prices and the weather as major constraints on farm and western growth. The paper was tabled Thursday in the Commons by Prime Minister Trudeau, and says that heavy world demand for grain and meat promises excellent pros- pects. ,But "continuous and regular expansion in agricul- tural output is needed in those commodities having the best potential-feed grains, oilseeds, other protein crops and livestock." "On this expansion can be built some increase In processing, transportation improvements including height-rate adjustments, farm service industries, and improved rural structure and living conditions." Unfortunately, the report says, the western land base is a fixed one and the "uncertainty in production, prices and markets and in farm income has limited the confidence and the natural and traditionally ex- pansionary approach of western fanners." The Calgary conference will bring together the prime minister and the four western premiers. The government's decision to call the meeting re- sulted mainly from severe western setbacks in the Oct. 90 federal election. The agriculture background paper emphasizes that farmers will confidently increase production, adopt new technology, invest more in equipment and take other progressive steps if market, price and income stability can be improved. Greater stability would permit improved farm liv- ing and more consistent incomes, an incentive to pro- duce-more and protection against the "continually rising costs of food."

SUNNY, WARM OTTAWA (CP) Pierre Juneau announced Thursday that the Canadian Radio-Tele- vision Commission (CRTC) is seeking regulations that would, in effect, ban foreign com- mercials from Canadian air- waves. At a meeting of the Senate transport and communications committee, Mr. Juneau said the CRTC feels that regulations governing commercials are nec- essary. He is CRTC chairman. He said the regulations will call for 100 per cent Canadian production of radio com- and Canadian content Boundaries commission work rapped OTTAWA (CP) The work -of the Alberta Electoral Boundaries Commission was attacked in the Commons Thursday by Conservatives who said it has proposed "odd- ball boundaries" for some of the province's 19 federal ridings. Marcel Lambert (PC Ed- monton West) said the com- missioners should start all over again. They had caused many frustrations because ttey did not have to justify proposed changes. Future commissions should include persons with some ex- perience in the area. "We always get somebody who has very littJe exposure to it and the results show if' The commission, under chairman C. Campbell Mc- Laurin of Calgary, included Dr. M. Wyman and W. H. MacDonaM of Edmonton and Nelson Castonguay, the fed- eral representation commis- sioner who sits on all provin- cial commissions. Jack Homer said ths commissKmers dis- played "complete ignorance of the problem of representation in the Province of Alberta." They had conceistraled too much on the growth centres of Edmonton and Calgary and not gives enough attention to rural constituencies. Joe Clarke Mountain) in television advertising will be "fts close to 100 per cent as pos- sible." The Senate committee was considering a motion by Senator Sydney Buckwold katchewan) to ban foreign ad- vertising in broadcasting. Mr. Juneau estimated it will be a year, at least, before the meas- ures could be brought into ef- fect. Public hearings and con- sultation with the industry would be required. He said the regulations will be modeled, on those now cov- ering programming. Television and radio program content must be at least 60 per cent Ca- nadian over a set period and never less than 50 per cent dur- ing any part of that period. A commercial produced do- mestically by a Canadian for a Canadian outlet would meet the proposed content rules, but common sense must play a part, he said. Some commercials, for geog- raphical or technical reasons, wOl have to be made outside the country, he said. Lister Sinclair, CBC executive told the com- mittee earlier that CBC affiliate television stations were worried that they would lose revenue to other media and even to U.S. stations if a ban was put in ef- fect.

Moore described statements and actions by Dean indicating that the former counsel sought to bare the full story for some time before April 30. But Moore, for the second day before the Senate Watergate committee, again disputed de- tails of Dean's testimony about conversations with Moore late last winter and said ne did not believe President Noon knew the truth about Watergate until 21. Moore, 59, a special counsel to Nixon who admits to some- times hazy memory, said Dean told him around March 15 that Dean intended to ten the truth if called before the reconsti- tuted Watergate grand jury. And Moore said that in mid- February, a month before the entire affair erupted, Dean was recommending in the draft of a presidential statement on exec- utive privilege that White House assistants and aides be per- mitted to discuss subjects ex- traneous to their duties as pres- idential aides or advisers. A presidential statement on executive privilege issued a month later barred such dis- cussions, though it was sub- sequently superseded. DEAN RECEPTIVE Moore said he advised Dean March 20 that be should tell Nixon the entire Watergate story, bits and pieces of which Dean had been intimating to Moore during preceding days. He said Dean was receptive to the idea.

Moore also testified that od April 20 he sought a meeting with Nixon and told the presi- dent be should take the Easter weekend for contemplation of the Watergate situation, obtain outside counsel and act quickly. Moore said that weekend, "a prominent lawyer did visit the president at Key Biscayne. It was a sjprt time after that that the April 30 speech resulted. I know no more than that." On April 30, Nixon fired Dean and accepted the resignations of top aides H. R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman. TORONTO (CP) In a deci- sion that might have far-reach- ing effects across Canada, Mr. Justice John Osier of the Su- preme Court of Ontario ruled Thursday that the Indian Act is inoperative. He also said the historic Council of Hereditary Chiefs of the Six Nations Indian reserve near Brantford, Ont., should be managing the reserve instead of the elected Indian council im- posed by the federal govern- ment in 1924. The ruling throws a question mark over legal title to a wide tract of land, including much of that on which present-day Brantford stands, said John So- pinka, a Toronto lawyer for the hereditary cffiefs. The judgment was based on precedents established in some of the first official land dealings colonial administrators and Indians in what is now Can- ada. The case arose from an in- junction brought by the elected pilot faces damage suit EDMONTON state- ment of claim for general damages was 'filed in Alberta Supreme Court Thursday against an Edmonton airline and Marten HartweU, pilot and lone survivor of a contro- versial Arctic plane crash. The statement'was filed by the estate of British nurse Judy Hill, one of three pas- sengers killed in the crash of Ailing Nixon suffers chest discomfort WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon experienced a "rest- tless night" and is continuing to suffer chest discomfort from a viral pneumonia condition for which he is being treated at Bethesda Naval Hospital, the White House said today.

His temperature was still said to'be running at 101 or 102 de- grees. When the president entered the hospital, Ziegler said be was expected to remain there for at least a week. a twin engine Beechcraft 18 piloted by' Mr. HartweU. It lists 12 examples of alleged negligence against Gateway Aviation, Mr. HartwelTs em- ployer, and the pilot CRASHED OFF COURSE Edmonton lawyer Philip. Ketchum, solicitor for the nurse's estate, said the claim is for loss of expectation of life and amenities of life. The 27-year-old nurse died Nov. 8 when the plane crashed 180 miles off course during a medical evacuation from Cam- bridge Bay, N.W.T., to Yellow- knife. She was accompanying two Eskimo patients to a hos- pital at YeOowknife.

David Kootook, 14, survived with Mr. HartweU for 23 days and was credited with saving the pilot's life. Mr. HartweU, who broke a ley in the crash, was picked up after 32 days in the Arctic barrens. The search for the plane was the costliest in the history of northern aviation, costing about million. council against the hereditary chiefs seeking to bar them from. the 87-year-old reserve council house. The application was dis- missed and the injunction, which has continued since 1970 on an interim basis, was dis- solved by Mr. Justice Osier. Reaction to the ruling was swift and mixed. Some older Indians on the Six Nations traditionalists supporting hereditary chiefs, hailed the Judgment as a victory. GOVERNMENT SURPRISED A spokesman for the federal Indian affairs department in Ot- tawa exgjfessed surprise at the decision and said the depart- ment would study the judgment before deciding what action, if any, to take. John Gasson, executive direc- tor of the Indian-Eskimo Assoti- alioaxtf Canada, said in Toronto that .Although the ruling came in a- provincial 'supreme court, it 'might have' repercussions across the country. "Most Indians feel Oat they have rightiL-lar beyond what- ever the Act grants them, but many will stffl view with apprehension the removal of protection, however great or small, afforded under the be said. Mr. Justice Osier said that in his opinion the Indian Act "is inoperative by virtue of its dis- crimination by reason of race-" He cited a Supreme Court of Canada ruling that declared in- valid, because of dis- crimination, a section of the act relating to liquor, and to a judg- ment pending in the same court on another sectioon by which a woman loses her Indian status upon marriage to a non-Indian. Peron seen returning to power BUENOS AIRES (AP) President Hector Campora re- signed today to allow new Ar- gentine elections that appeared certain to return to power Juan Peron, ousted by a military coup in 1955. The dramatic move followed a sudden call from moderate union leaders that Peron re- .sume his long-interrupted lead- ership. He returned from exile June 20 after Campora, his hand-picked stand-in, won elec- tions from which Peron was dis- qualified. Meanwhile, the provisional president would be Raul Lastiri, president of the Chamber of Deputies and son-in-law of Peron's trusted lieutenant, Jose Lopez Rega. Young offenders jailed illegally VANCOUVER (CP) Dozens of young people now jailed in British Columbia for federal of- fences may be serving illegal sentences as a result of a far- reaching decision Thursday by the B.C. Court of Appeal which held that a vital portion of the federal prisons act is uncon- stitutional. In s 2-1 decision thai could also affect similar cases in On- tario, the appeal court held that section 150 of the Prison and Befonnatories Act, which pro- vides for an indefinite sentence along with a definite one. was inoperative in B.C. because it denied an accused equality be- fore the law and contravened tbt fffM'fim Bffl of Rights. The prisons act is in effect in only B.C. and Ontario and is de- signed to make it possible for a judge, at his own discretion, to give persons under 22 years of age an indefinite sentence along with a definite one following conviction of a federal offence. The act is designed for re- habilitation purposes and puts Hie onus on the offender, by his own behavior in jail, to deter- mine largely how much of the indefinite term serves after completing the definite portion. Mr. Justice Nathan Nemetz and Mr. Justice A. E. Branca aUewed the appeal of Patrick Dale Burnshhje. 17. who was sentenced to three months defi- nite and two years less a day indefinite test Dec. 19 foBowiag conviction in county court in Vancouver of creating a dis- turbance. Vancouver lawyer D. J. Soro- chan. reprtsentani Sunshine, told the court the potential total of the definite and indefinite sentence amount to 27 months. Had his client fceen charged for 1he same offence under the Criminal Code of Canada, the maximum sentence the court could have imposed was six months definite plus a possible fine. He argued successfully that the county court judge had no jurisdiction to impose the defi- nite and indefinite sentence be- cause the prisons act con- travened the Canadian BiH of Rights ia fibat, bad Us client been charged in any one of eight Canadian provinces olher than B.C. or Ontario, he would have received the lesser sen- tence allowable under the Crim- inal Code, which does not pro- vide for indeterminate sen- tences in such cases. The appeal was fought en- tirety on constitutional grounds with Mr. Justice Branca and Mr. Justice Nemetz ruling that the sentence should be quashed on grounds it was illegal be- cause of discrimination. Mr. Justice H. A. Maclean dis- sented, holding that there was no discrimination. Crown Counsel George Mar- raj said be has been instructed to appeal the decision to the Su- preme Court of Canada, ;
