But the call turned out to be a hoax and the chair- man allowed that he thought it was a "right dirty trick." The nationally televised prank came as the afternoon session of the Senate Watergate hearing opened. The committee chair- man, Senator Sam Ervin (Dem. announced that Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz had telephoned to say, the com- mittee could have the presiden- tial tapes and that President Nixon would meet with Ervin next week to discuss procedures for turning them over. It was a hoax. Ervin said he got a mid-day telephone caH from a man who identified himself as Secretary of the Treasury George P. Shultz, and who said the presi- dent was prepared to release tapes the committee is seeking. He said, he assumed it was the real Shultz, but it wasn't. Ervin said he found that out later, after the White House said it knew nothing of such a decision. The real Shultz then told Er- vin he was not the man who telpboned. It was a bizarre turn in a bearing about bugging. Some people think the telephone is the instrument of the devil Ervin said.- Investment bill clears hurdle and been contracted to another firm.

PM considers trip to drum up business OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment foreign investment re- view bill was passed with a col- lective sigh of relief by the Commons finance committee Thursday night and sent back to the House for third-reading consideration. The committee has been hold- ing hearings on fee bill since May. Thursday night's was the 44th on the legislation which would set up a review agency to regulate foreign investments and takeovers. Trade Minister Alastair Gfl- lespie (banked the committee for their "heavy investment in time" on the bill, and com- mittee vice-chairman Harold Herbert (L-Vaudreuil) said he was pleased the committee bad completed its work. A provision of the bill would allow the government to seize company books and records of longest gas pipeline under study TEHRAN (AP) Western European countries were warned today that in order to avoid a fuel panic by 1980 they should consider the construction of a gas pipeline from Iran. Doctor Reza Fallah, royal oil adviser and -director of inter- national affairs of the National Iranian Oil said indus- trialized West European coun- tries should "hurry up" in con- sidering the construction of a pipeline from Iran through Tur- key, Greece, Yugoslavia and on to Germany, Italy and France. At a meeting with the foriegn press, Doctor Fallah said stud- ies for construction of the "world's longest gas pipe line" from Iran to Western Europe will be completed by Septem- ber, 1973.

The minister and officials said necessary orders for search would only be obtained from judges in extreme cases. Conservative membars charged that seizure of books could cause a great deal of disruption in a company. The committee approved an amendment Thursday night, one of a host proposed during the evening, that decreased the length of time seized documents could be kept by tie govern- ment to 14 from 21 days. Mr. Gillespie said there might be exceptional circumstances where it might be necessary to keep documents for a longer pe- riod. Provision is made in the bill for an extension if neces- sary. He said an attempted fraud by a large corporation could in- volve such massive volume of documentation that there could be a delay in obtaining copies and returning material to the company. Mr. Gillespie said the bill was extremely technical and (be amount of time the committee had devoted to it underlined its importance. The government ir- troduced a 'foreign investment control bill in May, 1972. But it died when the House was dis- solved for last fall's general election. Toe foreign investment re- view bill, introduced Jan. 24, is seen as a much stronger bill than' the 1972 proposal. Mr. Gillespie said he hoped the present bill would receive speedy passage through third reading. The Commons is expected to adjourn for summer recess next week so the biH is not likely to get third reading until fall.

"There's union inter-necine warfare. I can't understand it, but It's there. We're not going to interfere." Mr. Barrett said the idea is only a concept, but it should be implemented within a year. He wouldn't outline bow outside di- rectors would be chosen, whether by election or govern- ment appointment, and what proportion of the seats on the board they would, get.
