"Skoal" Asper leads bv 3 votes WINNIPEG (CP) A judi- cial recount of ballots cast in Wobetey riding in the June 28 Manitoba general ejection was condudeu Tuesday and Liber- al leader Izzy Asper appeared to have a three-vote margin of victory.

Madeline. Mr. MacKay re- signed as chairman of the Man- itoba Labor Board to contest everyone wants to do away with nuclear arms, we are willing to do likewise, but tet us have a and controlled df Asked'wbetber he thinks nu- clear arms wfll prevent a new world war, Jobert replied: "The big powers which have nuclear arms have preferred hitherto not to take risk of try- ing to use them. I hope that they will never take that risk." WEATHER BAD French scientists waited for the weather to clear before set- ting off the second explosion in the 1973 test series. Last weekend, France ex- ploded the first nuclear device of its current series in the South Pacific. The tests, thought to be attempts to perfect an atomic trigger for 8 hydrogen bomb, are expected to coutiuae with other blasts, perhaps as many as six, through late August Several countries have de- manded the tests end imme- diately and Peru has severed diplomatic relations with France until the tests are stopped. France has conducted the tests at Mururoa Atoll, 800 miles south of Tahiti, since 1966.

U.S. secret operations concealed WASHINGTON (AP) defence department dtckwed Tuesday there were secret in- telligence led by Americans into Cambodia and Law throughout most of toe to- 'docUna war. 'When Americans were killed in the operations, tbeir families were told they bad died in South Vietnam, Pentagon spokesman Jerry Friedheim said. As late as June 20, this year, the fact of the operation was concealed in a report to Con- gress, he said. The previously secret recon- naissance missions came to light as fee latest outgrowth of the disclosure tost week that B- 52 bomber were hitting tar- gets in Cambodia in 1969 and 1970 when tint country was supposedly neutral In a related development, De- fence Secreary James Schlesin- ger said the secret bombing of Cambodia in the 14 months prior to May, 1970, was "au- thorized at the highest level." "There was no usurpation of civilian Schleeinger told reporters. "The entire mili- tary command responded to di- rectives from the top." At a morning news briefing, Friedheim said a report to Con- gress June 20 had indicated that 81 Americans who actually died in Cambodia or Laos originally were reported kifeld in South Vietnam. Friedheim said the order to establish the system came from the joint cMefe of staff and went out under the name of its then chairman, Gen. Eerie Wheeler, who has since retir- ed. Schlesinger conceded that er- roneous information was given to members of Congress. He said this was a mistake and the result of a "Bureaucratic botch up." He said accurate records were kept of the Cambodian bombing for those who had a "need to know." But Schlesinger said the in- formation on the strikes, iden- tifying South Vietnam targets, was fed into a data bank for use by personnel in charge of logistics, replacement of ammu- nition and the like. When queries came from Capitol Hill, he said, through error "the answers were pumped out from the data bank." Schlesinger said that citizens may differ on (he wisdom of or- dering the bombing of a sup- posedly neutralist country hi which enemy sanctuaries were located. But he said it must be remembered that a half-million American troops in South Viet- nam were under attack from those sanctuaries. Schlesinger drew a parallel between the bombings and the building of the atomic bomb during the Second World War and U-2 Sights over Russia dur- ing the Eisenhower administra- tion. In those instances, not all members of Congress or the public knew, be said. In the case of the Cambodian bomb- ing, Schlesinger said, "appro- priate people" in the Congress were informed. "The United States govern- ment must indeed have these kinds of operations fir mili-, tary. and diplomatic Schlesinger said. sunny summer savings BUMBMB mmrnm Your Local Independent Grocer 642 13th St. N.
