Energy Minister Donald Macdonald in- dicated to the Western Econ- omic Opportunities Conference Wednesday.

Mars probe speeds fonvard MOSCOW (AP) Two un- manned Soviet space vehicles are speeding toward Mars to study the red planet and space conditions around it. Tass said the second unman- ned interplanetary station, call- ed Mars 5, was launched Wed- nesday from a satellite orbiting the earth. The first ship, Mars 4, took off last Saturday.

Youthful gunmen hunted BELFAST (Reuter) The British Army in Londonderry today bunted for youthful gun- men who shot down two unarmed military policemen. The two policemen were said to have been shot in the back white on patrol in the Catholic Bogside district of Londonderry, Northern Ireland's second larg- est city, and local residents said two youths holding pistols were seen running away after the shooting. The unarmed patrols by mili- tary policemen were introduced in Londonderry six months ago in an effort to bring a police presence back to the -Catholic areas which were run for more than a year until last July as independent "no-go" areas con- trolled by the Irish Republican Army. Aim of the patrols, said the British Army, is to regain the confidence of toe people in the security forces. Although the military policemen have been fired on three times before with one minor casualty, Wednesday night's was the first serious in- cident involving them.

RCMP dogs unearth tunnel Hoover, Mitchell knew about 'plumbing' plan By MICHAEL PUTZEL WASHINGTON (AP) John D. Ehrlichman testified tod-ay that both former attorney-gen- eral John Mitchell and the late FBI director J. Edgar Hoover knew that the White House "plumbers" unit planned to conduct an independent investi- gation of the Pentagon papers case. That investigation resulted in the burglary of Daniel Ells- berg's psychiatrist's office Sept. 3, 1971. Ehrlichman denies he approved the break-in, but de- fended it as a legal exercise of President Nixon's power to pro- tect national security. Ehrlichman, who was Nixon's chief domestic adviser, said he had been reluctant to conduct a White House investigation, "but the president was ing the pressure On to get re- sults." Ehrlichman told the Senate Watergate committee that his own aide, Egil Krogh, told him the FBI was not being co-oper- ative in investigating Ellsberg, who had publicly that he copied the top-secret Penta- gon papers and gave them to newspapers. In his third day of televised testimony, Ehrlichman said Mitchell confirmed to him that Hoover was not investigating the case vigorously. He said Hoover bad threatened to pun- ish a top FBI staffer for re- questing that agents interview Louis Marx, EHsberg's father-' in-law. Ehrlichman said he was told Marx was a friend of Hoo- ver. Connolly quits; Laird next? WASHINGTON (AP) John Comally has left the Nixon White House, raising questions about the stability of the entour- age the president put together following res- ignations. There is persistent specula- tion here that Melvm Laird, for- mer defence secretary, is not entirely pleased as successor to John Ehrlichman and may quit as Nixon's top domestic policy adviser. Laird, who said at the outset he planned to stay only a year, promises to remain on the job "as long as I can do some good." He has helped work out several major compromises be- tween the White House and Con- gress but it is known that Nixon has not been adopting all of his advice. Oonnally. whose resignation was announced by Nixon Wednesday, also found Nixon unreceptive to some of his coun- sel and, unlike Laird, felt he had no important job to per- form in his part-time, unpaid status as a special adviser. TO REJOIN FffiM Connally. former Democratic governor of Texas and treasury secretary during Nixon's first term, plans to rejoin bis Hous- ton law firm Monday. The White House announce- ment said he will take a round- the-world trip with bis wife "which the governor postponed in order to take the White House position." Connally, who turned Republi- can a few days before joining the Nixon staff May 10 also had complained privately about lack of ready access to the presi- dent. THREE Three The light fantastic. What improves the light, gentle taste of a four year old whisky? Blending it with the mellow smoothness of an eight year old. And only Three Feathers does it. Sip the light fantastic. Senator Lowell Weicker (Req. Conn.) challenged that point. He said he had personally inter- viewed Marx and the FBI man involved, and said Marx ac- tually had been interviewed by the" FBI before the "plumbers" was set up. Ehrliehman said be hadn't been aware of that, but had re- lied on what Mitchell and Krogh told him. He said the idea be- hind sending out the plumbers investigators was to prod the FBI to step up its owa efforts to investigate the affair. "The attorney-general and the director of the FBI knew that the White House was going to send out he said. The investigators were E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Laddy, both later convicted in the Watergate wiretapping of June, 17, 1972. Ehrliehman said Wednesday Hoover was inflexible and unco- operative and should have re- tired as FBI director early in the Nixon administration. He said Hoover was kept on be- cause of political considera- tious. MET ONLY ONCE Weicker also questioned whether Hoover and Marx had been close friends at all. Wei- cker said Marx told him that he met Hoover only once, 30 years ago, in a restaurant. Ehrlica- man said he beard differently.

Castro celebrates 20 years SANTIAGO, Cuba (CP) In spirit of solemn remembe- ranee tempered by Cuba's un- suppressed gaiety, Premier Fi- del Castro marks the 20th anni- versary of his revolution today amid growing conviction that some of Ms Soviet-Inspired pro- grams are showing results. Many of the economic prob- lems that besedged his regime are still there, including tiie country's continuing struggle to make ends meet. But the hun- dreds of invited guests decend- ing on this old Cuban city are astonished to find the makings of a new city springing up on the eastern outskirts. Some of the many hovels re- main but large sections of the old slums have been demo- lished, replaced by pre-fabri- cated five-storey apartment blocks, complete with furniture, electricity, streets, sidewalks, sewage and roads. The trees and other landscaping gives the whole area a definite North American -appearnace.

Mr. Diefenbaker said the en- tire incident is another in- dication of a complete lack of communication between the prisons and Mr. Allmand. Discovery of the tunnel, which Mr. Diefenbaker called a fine pieec of architecture, was announced Tuesday. It led from the farm annex toward the wall of the maximum-security area. No one was found in the well- camouflaged tunnel, but two prisoners from the farm annex were transferred back to max- imum-security because they were believed to be involved'in the project. Prison officials said the tun- nel .was discovered during a routine security patrol that found river sand in an unusual area. This led to finding a nine- foot shaft leading to the tunnel. Fund bill approved WAfflNGTON (AP) The House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday to en- able Congress to override Presi- dent Nixon when he refuses to spend funds it appropriates. Re- publicans warned that Nixon is certain to veto it. The vote was 254 to 164, less than the two-thirds majority that would be required to ride a veto. The bill now goes to confer- ence with the Senate, which has passed its own version and with the same general effect, but dif- fering in important details.
