Backlog of unfinished business MPs face summer holiday delay Watergate hearing to be resumed WASHINGTON (AP) Sena- Sam Ervin says he plans to resume the Senate Watergate jearings Tuesday despite the request of special prosecutor Archibald Cox that the televised sessions be delayed several weeks. The North Carolina Democrat who heads the Senate Water- gate committee told a news conference in Boston Sunday that Cox had asked him to post- pone further hearings until in- dictments have been returned. That could mean a two-to four- month delay, but that won't happen "if it's up to me." "The justice department has had this case for almost a year. The American people have a right to get to the bottom of this.' Committee sources said wit- nesses to be called soon include convicted conspirator Gordon Liddy, ex-campaign committee treasurer Hugh Sloan and for- mer commerce secretary and campaign finance chief Maurice Stans. Meanwhile, Democratic Na- tional Chairman Kobert Strauss confirmed a news report that his Dallas home was ransacked three weeks after the Watergate break-in last year. Nothing was stolen, he said, but he believes the burglars were searching for party financial records. Strauss was party treasurer at the time, and Watergate bur- glar Bernard Barker has testi- fied his men were looking for Democratic financial records when they were caught inside party headquarters at the Wa tergate. RECRUITED CALL GIRLS Columnist Jack Anderson re- ported today that call girls were recruited "to wheedle po- litical secrets" from Democrats at their Miami Beach con- vention last year. But investiga- tors "have been unable to de- termine whether they were ac- tually used." Anderson said Senate investi- gators learned about plans for such an operation from former attorney-general John Mitchell, who told them the idea was part of a massive intelligence- gathering scheme proposed by Liddy. The columnist quoted a summary of Mitchells inter- view with the committee staff. James McCord, one of the Watergate burglars, said Sun- day on the CBS broadcast Face the Nation that he is convinced that President Nixon "set in motion the Watergate operation and followed through on it." But the former CIA and re- election campaign security offi- cer admitted he had no direct evidence linking Nixon to the break-in. His conclusions were based on hearsay and his knowledge of how the Com- mittee for the Re-election of the President operated. Three killed in crash STEPHENVILLE, Nfld.

By PETER MICHAELSON OTTAWA (CP) Members of Parliament face the prospect of postponed summer holidays as the Commons today began its first full week of June sit- tings with a spate of legislative priorities still unsettled. The government has com- mitted itself to dealing with capital punishment, family in- c o m e legislation, electoral boundaries, immigration appeal procedures and the Montreal Olympics before the summer recess, traditionally begun at the end of June. However, none of these items is likely to get attention this week as the House deals with bilingualism in the public serv- ice and amendments to the Na- tional Housing Act to protect home buyers and, it is hoped, to lower land costs. Finance Minister John Turner's controversial corpo- rate tax measures are expected to get first reading this week, and Thursday and Friday will be devoted to debate on sub- jects chosen by opposition par- ties. Allan MacEachen, govern- House leader, has in- dicated the residential mort- gage and fisheries development bills, which would make more money available to home buy- ers and inshore fishermen, may also be brought forward for third reading.

New York harbor. The collision early Saturday touched off a series of ex- plosions and a huge fire which still flickered early today on the container ship Sea Witch. Firemen had suspended con- tinuous firefighting on the Sea Witch Sunday for fear that too much water in her holds would capsize her. But sporadic fire- fighting continued as new areas flared up. The Coast Guard said the danger of capsizing now was not great because the ship was partly beached, and the fire was not considered out of con- trol. Witnesses said the Sea Witch suddenly off course and struck the anchored tanker Esso Brussels just after mid- night Friday night. .As the ships drifted south, both engulfed in flames, they passed under the nearby Verra- zano Narrows Bridge. is an intrusion into news-gath- ering operations.

SEEKS INQUIRY Conservative MP John Gorst called for an inquiry into the af- fair by the Press Council, an in- dependent watchdog over news- paper activities. The council has no statutory powers but can censure editors and journalists and its findings are usually prominently published. Gorst asked: "How far does the Press Council agree that the press may go in collecting evi- dence and information by meth- ods which, if used by say, the police, would be totally rejected in a free John Grant, Laborite snokes- man on the press and broad- casting in Parliament, said the role of newspapers in the scan- dal "caused widespread con- cern and continues to do so."

The mathematical East by Murray Shafer of Sarnia, Ont., was neutrally described as a study in ear-tingling sound ef- fect" by The Guardian, but The Daily Telegraph critic was more reoeptro; the editor of News of the World of "a massive insult to the good name of journalism." A provincial English morning paper, the Western Daily Press, said hi an editorial: "The News of the World has now handed explosive ammunition to those who would like to fetter the press. They can call this the unacceptable face of journal- ism. They can press for repres- sive legislation." But The Daily Mail in London called the criticism of the pa- pers role a "side issue."

Prime Minister Trudeau's bilingualism resolution is ex- pected to come to a vote Tues- day. The resolution, which is expected to carry over- whelmingly, asks the Commons to endorse the government pro- gram aimed at creating a func- tionally bilingual public service by Dec. 31, 1973. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield introduced an amend- ment last week proposing that Mr. Trudeau's nine basic prin- ciples for establishing such a public service be made law un- der the Official Languages Act. The Liberals have indicated they will not support the amendment, claiming it would prevent the flexibility needed to meet the target date. The NDP has not said whether it Mill support the amendment, although Mr. Knowles indicated he personally opposes it. Mr. Stanfield is on record saying he will support the main resolution whether his amend- ment passes or not. EXPECT OTHER MOTIONS Social Credit party members also are expected to introduce amendments to the resolution. Mr. Turner's corporate tax measures have drawn less criti- cism following his move to soothe the opposition by allow- ing the House to re-examine them next April. Mr. Turner had wanted to make the reduction a per- manent feature of tax laws, but the Conservatives objected. The New Democrats are unalterably opposed to any corporation tax cuts, so without Conservative support the Liberals would face defeat and possibly another election, Bowing to the Conservatives. Mr. Turner said Tuesday that Pai t ament, on the request of 60 MPs, could review the legisla- tion after April The measures would lower the corporate income tax for manufacturers and processors 1 to 40 per cent from 49 per cent and give them a faster write-off of capital costs for tax pur- poses.
