Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Junt 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -11 Treasury Watergate spawned rookies branch measure attacked flex their political muscles Friendly advice John Jones, 75, gives Prime Minister Trudeau some friendly advice on federal veterans' programs during a campaign visit to Deer Lodge Hospital in Winnipeg Thursday. Alleged smugglers held MONTREAL (CP) Cana- dian immigration department investigators and the RCMP Thursday arrested three per- sons they described as princi- pals in an attempt to smuggle 122 residents of the Dominican Republic into Canada and the United States. Authorities said they are still looking for "two professional U.S. smugglers." Two of the three persons ar- rested are naturalized Cana- dians from Cuba and the Do- minican Republic while the third is a citizen of the Dominican Republic. Forty-two of the visitors, here illegally since midnight Monday night, are in custody. Eighty others still are at large. The 130-member group ar- rived in Montreal Friday and was to fly home Monday night Only eight arrived at Montreal International Airport for the return flight. They departed Tuesday after the Monday flight was postponed Visas for the group expired Monday night and those who stamp PHILADELPHIA (AP) Two one cent stamps without perforations and a Hemisfair '68 stamp without the six cent denominations were the feature attractions at a recent stamp auction here The one centers went for and the Hemisfair for have remained in Canada have no status, the immigration department has said. John Lovejoy, of the U.S. border partol at Swanton, Vt., said five persons involved in the case have been charged in Burlington, Vt. "Four of them, all Domini- cans, face criminal charges of illegal entry, while the fifth charged with illegal entry and the smuggling of he said. Andre Guenette, a Canadian immigration official, said all but two of the 42 persons in custody in Montreal have been ordered deported He said the other two have not been proc- essed yet. WINNIPEG (CP) Deputy Conservative leader Harry Enns called on Finance Minister Saul Cherniack Thursday to give a detailed outline of the Manitoba government's plans for treasury branches. Mr. Enns complained about the lack of information given to the legislature and urged the minister to explain how the proposed would compete with other financial institutions, what function the branches would perform and how many would be established in the near future. He also suggested the government might consider withdrawing the proposed Treasury Branches Act until the next session of the legislature. One of the reasons given by the government for the bill is to establish banking services in remote areas not served by banks or credit unions, but Mr. Enns said he believes the real purpose is simply to attract deposits. PROTEST RAISED The controversial legislation has been attacked by spokesmen for the credit union movement as well as by opposition MLAs. Nearly 400 representatives of credit unions met Wednesday in Winnipeg and approved a resolution in opposition to the government's plans. A spokesman for the group said treasury branches are a threat to the movement and would not receive support unless it could be shown the branches will fill needs credi unions cannot. WASHINGTON (CP) Citizen spawned in the wake of Water- beginning to make an impact as the United States gears up for one of its most significant elections. The phrase was coined in Washington to describe new- comers to federal politics, many making surprisingly good showings against veterans of both parties. A voter swing toward integ- rity in government and toward candidates untouched by the Watergate scandals has been noted in many of the primary elections. Some observers see the trend as a move from the "professional" type of few incumbents have had serious trouble with the newcomers. Nevertheless, there are signs that opportunities have never been better for the neophytes and the rookies are ready to try their luck. Under the U.S. system, pri- mary elections are held to settle on party candidates to contest congressional elections in November with all 435 House of Representatives seats open, along with one-third of the 100 Senate seats and many of the state governors' offices. PARTY WORRIED That the 1974 election will have an unusually significant impact has been stressed by Vice-President Gerald Ford, Nixon plays long suit WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon is playing his strong suit with his journeys to the Middle East and Moscow while congressional investigators inch toward a preliminary judgment about his impeachment. But he will return to find Watergate waiting. A verdict from Congress is months away. Nixon always has emphasized foreign policy, and the quest for a stable world peace, as his primary mission in the White House. The travels he begins Monday will underscore that theme, and identify him more directly with the successful Middle East diplomacy of his state secretary Henry Kissin- ger. When operating in the realm of foreign policy, presidents generally are treated more kindly by their critics than Pensions improved at Kimberley LEND A HAND Foreign tourists in Greece are given free assistance in case of car breakdown by the Automobile and Touring Club of Greece. TRAIL, B.C. (CP) The United Steelworkers of America said Thursday its campaign to win improved pensions from Cominco Ltd. for retired workers here and in Kimberley, B.C. has resulted in an agreement by the company-to improve the pensions. The union had staged demonstrations in both centres to win the improved pensions and had threatened strike action over the issue. The company sent letters to all pensioners agreeing to pay workers who retired before January, 1971 improved pensions, but wouldn't say by how much. The steelworkers are still in the midst of contract negotiations with the company and union spokesman Monty Alton said there are still many hurdles in the way of a settlement, including a cost-of-living formula, early retirement plan and improved pensions. The bargaining committee, which represents about workers, has already turned down a company wage offer which would have resulted in a wage increase spread over a two-year pact. when they are functioning on matters domestic, but that traditional attitude appears to be eroding. Applauding Kissinger's success in achieving a disengagement agreement between Israel and Syria, Democratic Senator Frank Church of Idaho said 'NIXON BENEFITS' "The proposed follow-up trip to the Middle East by President Nixon is unnecessary. I do not see what benefit such a tour would be except for the president himself Nixon plans to leave Monday, visit five Middle Eastern countries between June 12 and 18, return home for a week, and then depart for Moscow and summit talks beginning June 27. While Nixon travels, the im- peachment inquiry will continue before the House of Representatives judiciary committee. The laborious and lengthy process of listening to impeachment evidence is expected to occupy the committee through most of June, to cover material already in hand, and the com- mittee wants more. It has is- sued subpoenas for tape recordings of 122 White House conversations. The president has said he will turn over no more tapes. who says that if the Republi- cans don't do well, then the presidential election "may be irrelevant" for his party. However, "if the Republican party stands up and can be strong in 1974, it can prevail in he says. An indication of the impact that citizen politicians may have on that balloting can be seen in the California primary. There, the race for governor will be between the liberal son of a former a former college professor. The favorite for the Republican nomination had been the lieutenant-governor, now facing Watergate-related criminal charges A veteran politician, he lost the primary by better than 2-1 Another example of an in- experienced candidate doing well is the case of James Me- redith, leading symbol of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, who showed strongly in Mississippi on the House Democratic ticket. PRISONER FIGHTS Another citizen politician is Leo Thorsness. who trounced two other candidates for the Republican Senate nomination in South Dakota Far from being an experienced politician, Thorsness spent 23 years in the armed services, six in a Vietnamese prison camp He'll face veteran Senator George McGovern. Never in U S history have so many senators and congressmen out voluntarily in a single year. So far, 21 Democrats and 20 Republican members of the House have said they won't be back In the Senate, three Re- publicans and three Democrats have retired from the federal scene. The last time so many open- ings came up was 1972. when 46 old campaigners retired There was no reform move- ment afoot in 1972, however.
