2 _ THE IETHBRIDCE HERAID Tuesday, 3, 1975 News in brief Governors back Nixon STATELINE, Nev. (AP) Democrats have decided against trying to bring Presi- dent Nixon's handling of the Watergate scandal before the national governors conference. They decided to drop any or- ganized Watergate move after some warned that such political issues are taking too much at- tention from other national problems. A suggestion by Democratic Gov. Patrick Lucey of Wiscon- sin that the Watergate affair has so paralysed the federal government that President Nixon should resign failed to win endorsement from any of his colleagues Monday. Italy in news blackout ROJIE (AP) A nationwide "day of silence" strike by jour- nalists plunged Italy into a news blackout today. Printers and television per- sonnel stayed out in sympathy. The union representing about 7.000 journalists staged the v.-alkout to protest what it called an "assault on the free- dom of the press." Specifically, the walkout was I over the sale of 50 per cent of Rome's biggest daily, II Mes- saggero, and Genoa's II Secolo XIX to magazine publisher Edilio Rusconi. The publisher is known for his rightist views in a land where the left is strong. In addition, the journalists charged that Attilio Monti, a wealthy oil man who already owns fiVe dailies, is behind Rus- coni. Monti also is said to be i rightist. Backivard ride Senators are against delay in Watergate TV hearings By LAWRENCE KNUTSON WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate Watergate investigating committee is resisting a prose- cution request to postpone televised hearings, and is decid- ing what to do about a key wit- ness who won't talk. Five of the special panel's seven senators went on record Monday to oppose the three- month postponement requested by Archibald Cox, special Wa- tergate prosecutor. At the same time, convicted Watergate conspirator Gordon Laddy was brought from jail to appear before committee staff investigators and, as predicted, refused to answer said here today They said the 61-year-old presid-ent not four Pojnpidou cuts activity PARIS (Renter) President i side the Elysee presidential pal- Georges Pompidou, whose ace until further notice, in- health has become a subject of rocjor political speculation in France, has cancelled his paru- j receptions scheduled in the cipation at all receptions out- 1 coming weeks.

Court holds sessions on reserve HOBBEMA (OP) Judge Al- lan Cawsey Monday considered 11 case? as court arrived at Samson Hall on the Samson In- dian Reserve here for the first time. Judge Cawsey said court will be conducted here twice a month. He told Indians in the court- room the trials were heM on the reserve for their conveni- ence. Four chiefs of bands in the area made a request to hold court here rather than in We- taskiwin, 11 miles north of the reserve and 40 miles south of Edmonton. Reservation police served as Hospital prepares for strike EDMONTON 'CP) Elec- tive admissions to the Royal Alexandra Hospital here were halted Monday as officials pre- pared for a possible strike by members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Executive director Bob Ross- er said emergency treatment was discontinued for patients who would require a hospital stay, but walk-in patients were still being treated Monday night. Mr. Rosser said the hospital was attempting to cut its nor- mal occupancy rate of 850 by more than 350 within four or five days in preparation for the threatened strike. A strike vote began Monday. Mr. Rosser said the strike plan differs from the one im- posed recently when nurses threatened to strike. In that case, the plan was to empty the hospital. Settlement with nurs- es was reached shortly before the strike deadline. In this case, tl-e hospital mander, has been practising the space walk procedures in a huge water tank which provides some sensation of weigh- tlessness.

Condition for crops unproved CALGARY (CP) Soil-mois- ture conditions improved slight- ly in Alberta last week, the Al- berta Wheat Pool said Monday night in its weekly crop report. Only in south-central and southeastern districts was the lack of moisture still a serious problem. Edmonton and the Peace River region reported generally good soil moisture conditions. Much of southeastern Alberta now is fighting grasshopper in- festations, said the report, which said chemical spraying was in progress. To the east and south of Cal- gary, flea beetles had attacked early rapeseed crops. Seeding was reported nearly complete, with 97 per cent of wheat in the ground along with 79 per cent of barley, 88 per cent of flax and 76 per cent of rapeseed. Borax products recalled JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Last year, fed- eral health department records reveal that at least two Cana- dian infants had to be hospi- talized with severe boron poi- soning as a result of using teething preparations containing borax. In 1969, there's another recorded case of an infant that had to be hospitalized with bo- ron poisoning symptoms, this time as a result of the use of a boric dusting powder product. As a result of such cases in Canada and in other countries and as a result of a general concern about the dangers of more widespread toxic effects, the federal government Monday anounced it was taking a num- ber of steps to eliminate boric acid and borax f products used on infants in Canada. Effective immediately, all teething preparations containing boric acid (also known as bo- racic acid1) or borax (techni- cally called sodium borate) are being recalled by Ottawa, coast- to-coast. The government warns par- ents to stop using the products, which are usually called borax and honey or, in French, "miel et borax" and are listed more completely below. In a related move, Ottawa has decided to change the food and drug regulations effective Sept. 1, to make a host of other external application products contalnnig boric acid or borax illeal for use on children under three years of age. Again, the reason is concern about possible boron poisoning. There are some 100 products in this second class, mostly lo- tions, powders and ointments used for treating diaper rash in infants. Manufactures have been advised to stop sale of the products at once. Parents have been warned not to use the products on bro- ken, raw or damaged skin. Such practice increases the risk of the boric acid or borax being abrobed through the skin and causing boron poisonng. The senators scheduled a pri- vate meeting before today's scheduled re-opening of the pub- lic hearing to discuss whether contempt-of-Congress proceed- ings should be started against Liddy. The hearings resumed after ft one-week pause and heading the list of witnesses was Sally Har- mony, liddy's secretary when he was counsel of the Com- mittee to Re-elect the Presi- dent Mrs. Harmony is said to have typed secret wiretap logs of Democratic party officials. Also set to appear was the Washington printer who pre- pared the stationery used in the political intelligence operation of the Nixon campaign, and Robert Reisner, a Republican party aide who worked under Jeb Magruder, once the Nixon campaign's No. 2 official. COULD PROVIDE LINK Reisner has been named by convicted Watergate con- spirator James McCord as one who might be able to support his story that the Watergate bugging operation bad the prior approval of Magruder, former attorney-general John Mitchell and former White House coun- sel John Dean. As the hearings in the Senate caucus room continue under of- ficial protest, there were these other developments: White House said it will not furnish investigators with logs of any conversations be- tween President Nixon and his ousted counsel, Dean, about the Watergate scandal. The com- ment was in response to pub- lished reports that Dean met with the President 30 to 40 times on various aspects of the Watergate cover-up. The Wash- ington Post has reported that when Dean is called as a wit- ness he will allege Nixon was Method detects heart attacks LONDON (API Two British doctors 5aid here they developed a quick method of de- tecting undiagnosed heart at- tacks by the veins on the back of a patients hand.
