Mr. Crump said it would be much easier for witnesses tra- velling from other parts of Canada to reach the provincial capital, instead of this town of about 260 miles west of Edmonton.

Gandhi in Ottawa on Sunday Doctors worry over authority By GLENNIS ZILM VANCOUVER (CP) Sev- eral Canadian Medical Associ- ation policy-makers say they are worried that stringent fed- eral controls on some drugs are reducing doctors' authority. Delegates to the CMA govern- in" council called Friday for I John Mitchell, who also was Nixon's campaign chief, said Mitchell plans to defend himself against all charges but will wait until he has "an appropriate fo- JnteiTogated by the full com- mittee at an executive session Monday, a year and a day after the 1972 Watergate break-in. The public hearings resume with Dean at the witness table Tuesday morning. The proceed- ings prior to that will be pri- vate. TESTIMONY CRUCIAL Observers here view Dean's testimony as crucial because he probably is the only former member of the president's inner circle who might be able, and willing, to link Nixon to the scandal. The Senate sources say the committee, therefore, wants to be extremely careful when he testifies publicly, to elicit only what he may know personally and not to permit inflammatory but unusable evidence. Meanwhile, 'lawyers for two other formerly close associates of the president indicated their clients are sticking by earlier denials of any involvement in the affair, despite the testimony of a top campaign aide that they are implicated. Plato Cacheris, who repre- sents former attorney-general inS council called rnaay ior JL III iy [JKKn, creation of a joint committee of the association and the federal health department health pro- ection branch to "give guid- ance" to the government about prescribed drugs.

TONED DOWN CURBS In discussions Friday, some of the 250 delegates from pro- vincial CMA branches ex- pressed even more regret that the CMA board had agreed, but Dr. J. D. Wallace, executive di- rum." Jeb Stuart Magruder, deputy in the re-election campaign last year, testified that he attended a meeting at which Mitchell ap- proved Gordon Liddy's scheme to break into and bug the Democratic parry headquarters in the Watergate.

JUNE 11-23 IN THE EMBASSY DINING ROOM and IMPERIAL LOUNGE Water caution advised OTTAWA fCP) Trade likely will be one of the chief points of discussion when Indira Gandhi, India's prime minister, visits this country next week. Mrs. Gandhi arrives liere late Sunday afternoon for an eight- day visit during which she will get a glimpse of four provinces and eight cities and towns. Canadian officials say she probably will ask that Canada j buy more goods from her coun- try. Canada last year exported R97 million in goods to India, but bought only million from that country. HAS NEW POLICY External affairs officials say it is almost certain that Mrs. Gandhi will not ask for food. This would be contrary to her new policy of self-reliance in keeping India fed. High on Canada's priority list for discussion is aid. India is the main recipent of Canadian foreign billion in the last 22 years. Mrs. Gandhi, a widow, has been to Canada three times in the past, but aged to reduce some even stricter controls first proposed j by the federal government. After all, he told the dele- gates, the profession itself had been on record for several years as opposing misuse of amphetamines. This had re- duced, but not eliminated, the problem of misuse. ALCOHOL WORST In other recommendations Friday, doctors were urged to take a more-active role in dis- couraging the public from mis- using all psycho-active drugs, including alcohol and tranquil- lizers.

NIXON SKIRTS ISSUE In other Watergate develop- ments Friday: Nixon made a veiled reference to the scandal in a speech in Pekin, HI., jay- ing that people should not be- come conical about politics and politicians because "it would be a tragedy if we allowed mistakes of a few to the virtues of most." Although his audience gave the president a generally friendly reception, a 25-year-old law student who tried to display an "Impeach Nixon" sign was arrested' and led away in hand- cuffs after police claimed his sign pole was dangerous. Sam Ervin (Dem. chairman of the Water- gate committee, told a conference in Chicago he is "in- clined to believe" Magruder's story but added, "I think Mit- chell can tell us if the events testified to by Magruder did happen." He said he saw no ne- cessity to call on Nixon to tes- tify. Vorenberg, assistant to special Watergate prosecutor A-oibald Cox told a news con- ference in Washington White House has kept Cox's staff waiting more than a week for an answer to whether it will supply requested documents. The documents include records of conversations the president had with Dean. The White House replied that writ- ten requests for the material were not received until this week and that the president's counsel has not had time to act on them but will.

Police shooting; RAFFLE WINNER GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING STUDENT COUNCIL DRAWN JUNE 8th 10 SPEED BIKE TREVOR LEFOR 3305 Kehoa PROCEEDS TO GALT SCHOOL GRADUATION Ontario court acquits girl, 19 TORONTO (CP) Kimber- ley Barbara Wilson, 19, was acquitted by an Ontario Su- preme Court jury Friday on a charge of being an accessory after the fact in the fatal shoot- ing of a metropolitan Toronto policeman. Miss Wilson had been charg- ed with helping David Brian Holmes, 22, to escape after he shot Constable James Lothian Jan. n. Holmes and a companion, Walter Eugene Me Vicar, 25, committed suicide in a house surrounded by police following the shooting. Mr. Justice Donald Morand told the all male jury, which deliberated for five hours be- fore returning its verdict, that the case was unusual and would tax the patience of any Juror. The trial lasted two weeks. In his summation, defence lawyer Arthur Whealy said Miss Wilson was on trial for pulling Holmes into the car they and McVicar used tire night of the shooting. Mr. Justice Morand said there a logical inference that Holmes intended to kill Constable Lothian and there was no doubt Miss Wilson did something to help Holmes after the shooting. She had testified she pulled Holmes into the car because she didn't want him hurt. The defence argued that she acted instinctively with no time for thought and did nothing to help Holmes escape. Mr. Whealy said Miss Holmes was guilty only of bad j n d p m e nt m living with Weighs up to Ibs. Permanent, semi- portable and portable. Heavy duty steel holding pen available.
