Vesco came to Costa Rica last month before a New York grand jury indicted him. former U S. attorney general John Mit- chell and former commerce secretaiy Maurice Stans. The indictment was based on an unrcported donation by Vesco to President Nixon's 1972 re-election campaign.

The army described the Sun- day night battle as a planned attack by Protestants Troops who entered the head- quarters of the UDA. a para- military organization, seized guns and ammunition. The dead man was a Protes- tant bus driver whose vehicle was hit when gunmen opened fire on trcops. His bus went out of control and struck an army roadblock. The 12 passengers were unhurt. Shortly afterward, an army patrol reported shooting a gun- man in a nearby street, lie v.as admitted to a hospital where a spokesman said ha was in serious condition. Sunday night's Shootout fol- lowed a wamin" by young members of the UDA that they had taken control ot the organ- ization and would pursue a more militant policy. Police and British army units reported coming under fire on at least six occasions in Protes- tant strongholds Sunday night and early toady. Also killed in Belfast Sunday was 35-year-old Catholic Danie'l O'Neill, found suffering from shotgun wounds in a playing field in the mixed Old Park dis- trict. He died later in hospital. Sources close to the army said the increase in East Bel- fast shootings indicated that more militant members had in- deed taken over the Protestant Ulster Defence Association During the weekend young leaders of the paramilitary or- ganization said they had re- moved more than 20 senior o'fi- cers from their posts, with the aim of taking a tougher line against British troops and the Irish Republican Army.

The less appearance of a coverup in an} quarter, the better.'1 He said it would help if Nixon would hold a news conference about Watergate, and predicted he would do so soon. The Senate's hearings are set to resume Tuesday. Special prosecutor Archibald Cox has asked for a court order pre- venting further live television or radio coverage of the hear- ings, and a ruling is expected Tuesday from U.S. District Court Judge John Sirica. A possible witness before the Senate committee this week is former commerce secretary Maurice Stans, Nixon's chief fund-raiser during the cam- paign. During the weekend, the Com- mittee to Re-elect the Presi- dent, which Stans heads, an- nounced that it is paying legal fees for Stans and other key employees and officials in civil cases arising from Watergate, but not in cases in which crimi- nal charges have been filed. The committee also said it has paid Stans a retroactive an- nual salary of since April 7, 1972. Stans originally had intended to donate his serv- ices, but the Watergate scandal has dragged out his stay at the committee far beyond last No- vember's election. The committee said Stans W23 awarded the salaiy in April cf th's year, and voluntarily took a cut to a year on May 10. when he was indicted in New York for perjury, fraud and obstruction of justice. The committee reported to the General Accounting Office that it has million left over from the campaign. There were these other week- end Watergate developments: New York Times and The Washington Post reported that Nixon's personal lawyer, Herbert Kalmbach, is ready to testify that former White House aides H. R. Haldeman and John Ehriichman instructed him to raise money paid to Watergate defendants and their lawyers. magazine said former presidential counsel John Dean has told Senate in- vestigators that the White House pressured U.S. District Court Hospital staff strikes EDMONTON (CP) The member support staff of the Royal Alexandra Hospital at 6 a.m. today went on strike in support of wage demands. The hospital, in anticipation of the strike by members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees had re- duced its patient load to 425 by Sunday. The hospital's normal capacity is about "We are carrying on as best we can, using supervisory and other Bob Rosser, the hospital's executive direc- tor, said in an interview today. He said the hospital hopes to reduce the number cf patients to about 350. "I think we've become the targets here because ours is a city owned said hospital board chairman Ches- ter Tanner, a city alderman. "We already pay the highest wages in the province and tra- ditionally we've had good rela- tions with out workers so I can only conclude this is an at- tempt to break the 40 hour work week." I "We have been holding our- i selves available for negotiation since this dispute began but we realizp we must meet our obli- gations not only to the patients and staff, but to the people of the city who have to meet the expenses of running the hos- pital." Mr. Tanner said CUPE locals at University Hospital and General Hospital, also in the city, already have signed 1 agreements this year for less than the offer made by the hos- pital board to the Royal Alex- andra local. "For four years after, we saw no attempt at reform. Then, a year ago, the government brought in a half-baked bill as a pre-election gimmick before Mr. Trudeau dissolved Parlia- ment and called the election." "Today Parliament has nothing before it in the way of government reform legislation. Suspicion and concern abound in the public mind and we have to ask ourselves if we will be going through yet another elec- tion with no reform in effect." He said campaign reform is a high-priority item and Prime Minister Trudeau's lack of ac- tion is shameful. SUPPORT PRINCIPLE The Conservative leader en- dorsed the principle of dis- closing the sources of contribu- tions to candidates or parties but that "below a realistic nom- inal contribution" the disclosure should be by category only, the name need not be released. This approach is essen- tial to protect individuals who want to participate in this way and who would feel that disclosure of modest contribu- tions would really make mockery of our whole secret ballot system, "Regarding larger contribu- tions, the intention should to clear the air of suspicion. "Its has become clear that confidentiality must be sacri- ficed to the larger demand for public confidence in the system. "I believe that in the case of contributions above the nominal amount, the names of the indi- viduals, businesses, unions or other organizations and the amounts contributed by each should be a matter of public record." Mr. Stanfield also said his party believes a ceiling should be imposed on campaign spend- ing and that there should be "limited financial assistance" from the public purse. He also called for shorter campaigns because with modern trans- portation, eight weeks or more were not necessary. "These are some basic re- forms which we believe are necessary to cleanse our elec- toral system of suspicion, ex- cesses and abuses."

"I believe ve must educate people to the point where they believe we hold a trust in our hands for future generations and that trust is in danger." Dr. E. E.

CAMHOSE (CP) Alberta New Democratic Party leader Grant Notley said today the provincial government should use its natural gas as a lever to obtain lower freight rates. Mr. Notley told a meeting of the provincial NDP council that Alberta should dsmand concessions from central Can- ada in the form of lower freight rates if Ontario is to expect low-cost natural gas. Alberta Premier Peter Loug- heed has announced he will raise the wellhead price of na- tural gas and Ontario Premier William Davis has countered that the constitutionality of Al- berta's proposal will be tested in the courts. "There is no bigger stumb- ling block to diversification of the Alberta economy that the freight rate said Mr. Notley.
