However, when police find the persons who managed the exercise, it is safe to say that the thieves won't be heartily congratulated for their outstanding efforts. The Carrier air condition- er-compressor used to sit securely on the roof of the Holiday Village mall on Mayor Magrath Drive, and when it was last used in Sep- tember, 1972, no one thought to post a security watch on it air conditioner compres- sors on mall roofs are not the type of thing to attract a lot of illegal attention. But this spring, when the owners went up to turn it on wasn't there. The theft was reported to city police Tuesday.

He also flatly refused to take action with the Bank of Canada to place a limit on the interest rates so they would not rise any higher. The minister assured the op- position members that he was as conscious of the pain of ris- ing interest rates in this coun- try as they were. However he pointed out that the current ex- pansion of the economy extend- ing over the last six months at a rate of 11.6 per cent in real terms, is the fastest expansion Canada has ever experienced. Canada is now experiencing the highest inflation it has had in almost 25 years, Jeames Gil- lies Valley) told the house. Ged Baldwin, Progressive Conservative house leader, asked if the Liberal government "in fact has abandoned its fight against said Mr. Turner. Mr. Baldwin said the "se- cret" cabinet document that was leaked last week showed that the government has placed price stabilization well at the bottom of the government's pri- ority list. Mr. Turner has declined com- ment on the alleged secret cabi- net document. Mr. Gillies, chief financial critic for the opposition, said the finance minister has sug- gested he believes a cause of the inflation is due to "demand He said if the government is not prepared to introduce credit controls and will not re- sort to wage and price controls it would appear that the cabinet has decided to "live with this rate of inflation for the rest of the year." There was an uproar in the house from opposition members when Mr. Turner said the present rate of inflation results from world commodity prices and agricultural prices. There jeers of derision when the minister said "even adopting the theories advanced by the Conservatives those prices would not be amenable to wage and price controls." "The government's response to the current position is to try to increase the supply of those commodities by lowering tar- iffs, encouraging production and agricultural production and in- creasing the "disposable income of all said Mr. Turner. 14 Tory renegades are all from west By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau of the 16 Progressive Conservatives who broke party ranks to vote against Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Tnxteau's controversial resolution on bilingualiam are from Western Canada. Most prominent is former prime minister John Diefenba- ker, now MP for Prince Albert, Sask., who has said the resolu- tion is just a political ploy by Mr. Trudeau to hold his party's votes in Quebec. Five Manitoba MPs voted against the resolution, four each from Saskatchewan and Al- berta, and one from British Co- lumbia. The Manitoba MPs who voteS Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg South against the resolution are: Dan David Lewis, New Demo- cratic Party leader noted a press report that the prime in- terest rate is likely to go up to per cent from percent He asked if the finance minister is ready to accept a further i crease in the prime interest rate. Mr, Turner said the press an- ncfjicement was speculation He said he could not deal wtih hypothetical or speculative questions in the house. Mr. Lewis urged the finance minister to take action to hole down the rising interest rates. He said mortgage interest rates have already increased and the prime rate is now up to 9'4 per cent. He said such rates had serious consequences for bor- rowers and home buyers. John Diefenbaker, former prime minister, interjected "I thought inflation ended two years ago according to Prime Minister Trudeau." "That is another said Mr. Turner. "Pierre said it was over two years shouted a Con- servative backbencher. "That was before Turner took another member inter- jected. "Bring back said a Tory MP.

Mr. McKenzie was expected to vote against the resolution since his victory over defeated Libsral MP E.

Also on today's witness list was Herbert Porter, who had been director of campaign scheduling. Sloan testified that he paid in cash to Por- ter but Porter refused to tell him the purpose of the money, which allegedly went for politi- cal espionage. As the committee resumed its televised hearings, special Wa- tergate prosecutor Archibald Cox was seeking to block news coverage of some future pro- ceedings, a move likely to be opposed by the committee chairman, Senator Sam Ervin. Cox has filed a motion asking U.S. District Court Judge John Sirica to order the Senate com- mittee to go behind closed doors for testimony from persons fac- ing indictment, or at least to prevent radio and television coverage of such testimony. Persons reportedly facing In- dictment include former White House aides John Dean, John Ehrlichman and H. R. Halde- man, former attorney-general John Mitchell, former com- merce secretary Maurice Stans and former Nixon campaign deputy Jel) Magnider. Cox contends the Senate hear- ings jeopardize his own investi- it poMibto The committee unanimously re- jected Cox's earlier request for a three-month postponement of the hearings. In other Watergate develop- ments White House agreed to furnish Senate investigators with the legs of meetings ear- lier this year between President Nixon and Dean. Deputy press secretary Gerald Warren said the material gives dates and durations of those meetings and telephone conversations. Warren was asked whether the Senate committee and pros- ecutor Cox would be given records indicating subjects dis- cussed at the Nixon-Dean meet- ings. "I doubt he replied. Representative Paul McCloskey' (Rep. Calif.) in- itiated the first formal dis- cussion of impeachment in the House of Representatives, only to be cut short after six minutes when Representative Earl Landrebe (Rep. Ind.) demanded a quorum. Most members had left. McCloskey said "that time seems almost at hand" when the house must consider formal impeachment proceedings "un- less the president makes a full and fair disclosure of every- thing he knows and when he learned justice department an- nounced it will not appeal the dismissal of charges against Pentagon papers defendants Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo. U.S. District Court Judge Matt Byrne dismissed the charges because of govern- ment misconduct after it was disclosed that Ellsberg's psy- chiatrist's office was raided at the direction of a White House intelligence squad. Sloan told the Senate com- mittee Wednesday that he re- sisted repeated suggestions from White House and Nixon campaign officials that he lie or refuse to answer questions about the affair. Four or five days after the Watergate raid, campaign dep- uty Magruder told him he might have to lie about the amount of money he had given to G. Gordon Liddy, the cam- paign counsel later convicted in the wiretapping, Sloan said. "I remember making to him on that occasion a statement that I have no intention of per- juring Sloan recalled. Sloan testified that he paid Liddy on orders from Magruder. TALKED TO AIDES Sloan said he later voiced concern "that there was some- thing very wrong at the cam- paign committee" to a number of White House aides at a cock- tail party and in meetings with Dwight Chapin, then the presi- dent's personal appointments secretary, and Ehrlichman. Chapin "suggested the impor- tant thing is that the president be Sloan said. Ehr- lichman said, "I do not want to know." On June 24, Sloan said, he was called to Mitchell's office by Robert Mardian, a Mitchell aide. Sloan recalled that when he told Mardian that he had paid Liddy Mardian "blew up, staggered by the amount. He said, 'God damn, Magruder lied to John Mitchell. He told him it was only Then he told Mardian about Magruder's suggestion of perjury. After a week's vacation in Bermuda with his wife, Sloan returned to Washington to find that Mitchell had resigned as the campaign head and Liddy had been fired for refusing to answer FBI questions. Later. Magruder renewed his suggestion that Sloan lie about the Liddy money, Sloan said. On July 5 Magruder asked him to tell federal prosecutors that the amount was Origi- nally Magruder had wanted him to say it was Sloan said. The next morning Sloan told Magruder he would tell the truth about the money if prose- cutors asked him, and Magr- uder "just sort of said fine, and dropped the subject." Sloan said he told about this pressure to commit perjury to lawyers for the Nixon cam- paign, who said they also had been told a lie about the money. He said he told it to federal prosecutors and to the grand jury, but that nothing was done about it.
