Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Jon. 1973 THf ItTHBRIDOt HtRAlD If Sloan feared retribution research assault WASHINGTON (AP) Hugh Sloan, former Nixon campaign t-easurer, testified here he had feared administration retribu- tion for tolling the truth about the Watergate wiretapping, but was assured it wouldn't happen. And he said he "threw up my hands" when the man he ac- cused of asking him to lie, for- mer campaign deputy Jeb Magruder, was given a a-year government job. Stoan testified at the Senate's televised Watergate hearings that lie visited H. R. Haldeman, White House chief of staff, last January after testifying as a government witness at the trial of the Watergate burglars. He said Haldeman assured him tie administration wouldn't stand in the way of his finding a private job, but that no one regarded as a "Watergate fig- ure" would be given a high gov- ernment job until the case was cleared up. Sloan said he felt good about the meeting, but a few days later read that Magruder had been appointed to a policy post in the commerce department. "At that time I just threw up mv Solan said. Sloan testified Magruder was the only individual "I could clearly idetiify in my mind" as having asked him to lie about finances involved in the Water- gate ooeration. ASKTO TO LIE "He was the only individual who specifically requested of me that 1 consider an illegal act, as far as I Sloan said. Sloan said he told Haldeman he had been asked to perjure himself several times, but didn't mention Margruder's name because he thought at the time the Watergate issue was dead. He had named Magruder earlier to other officials in the campaign, to its lawyers, to federal prosecutors and to the Watergate grand jury, he said. Black fly war backed EDMONTON (CP) A OC3 research assault on the black fy pest in northern Al- berta has approved by provincial cabinet. The money has been set aside to continue past research projects and to start new ones in the hope of controlling black flies in the Athabasca re- gion, and perhaps coming up with solutions that could ba ap- plied all across northern Can- ada, Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner said here. An agriculture department official said major black fly outbreaks are enough to kill cattle and are a limiting fac- tor in just where settlements can be located in northern Can- ada. The research effort by the federal department of agricul- ture, and three Alberta govern- ment departments, is baing cen- tred in Athabasca, 150 miles north of Edmonton. FAMILY ALBUM STARTER ALBUM ADOtHONAI. POSTPAOS TAKV.N A F CROSS STUDIO While the research tends to be oriented to agriculture, it is also aimed at ccntrohing the past for pecple well. Black fly bites are regarded as worse than mosquito bites and many parsons suffer swelling from them. Black fly larvae breed ly while attached to rocks m running water. An old method of central was to treat running water with DDT, but use of that chemical is now being eliminated. The research studies are be- ing directed toward the pros- pect of detaching larvae from their breeding sites so they float downstream away from populated and agricultural areas, the official said. In northern Alberta, generally drains northwards, away from settled areas. One possibility is temporarily damJig small streams to re- move them or use of some oth- er non chemical means to ni a k e the larvae float down- stream. Studies are also being con- ducted into treating animals New airport plan checked OTTAWA (CP) Transport Minister Jean Marchand said in the commons his department will investigate an airport se- curity system that might enable airline passengers to bypass present searching procedures when boarding flights. He told Don Mazankowski he has made inquiries about a United States proposal for a revised screen- ing system to forestall sky- jackers. Information about the system and its possible adoption in the U.S. has not been available from Washington, said Mr. Marchand. Passengers now are screen- ed for metallic objects before boarding aircraft and baggage they carry aboard is checked. A US report sajs a less rigid screening process may be considered there as a result of several months experience with a 100-per-cent check similar to Canada's. with repellents or insecticides to keep them free of adult black flies. Thi major outbreaks of black flics tend to occur in mid- tc-late June and again towards the fall, the official said. Search for oil, gas costs industry billions Epileptic treatment MONTREAL (CP) Dr. Claude Bertrand of Notre-Dame Hospital said yesterday a new technique to treat epileptic patients will be inaugurated next week in Canada. Dr. Bertrand, a pioneer of the new treatment called sterotaxy, said it had proved to be effec- tive in curing 70 per cent of epi- leotic patients who could not be he'-Ted by medication. He said the technique in- volves the brief insertion of fine electrical probes into the brain to detect "fecal points" respon- sible for epileptic attacks. Dr. Guy Bouvier, who spent last year in France perfecting the treatment skills, said the technique not only helps detec- tion, it can also be used to "de- stroy" these epileptic centres. FUR COAT STORAGE TIME THE LETHBRID6E FURRIERS PHONE 327-2209 CALGARY (CP) The petro- leum industry spent a record billion in Canada last year in search for the develop- ment of oil and natural gas, the Canadian Petroleum' Associ- ation said here. This was 8.1 per cent higher than 1971. Statistics released by the as- sociation said Alberta continued to attract the largest share of tbs industry's expenditure, tak- ing 65 per cent of all ex- penditures last year. In the last 25 years, the in- dustry has spent billion in search for and development of oil and gas resources in Can- ada. The association said the in- dustry contributed more than million to government rev- enues in addition to corporate tax.
