Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, June 18, 1973 Attempt to increase image Tories plan fall caucus in Quebec OTTAWA (CP) In an at- tempt to build their relatively tiny presence in Quebec, the Conservatives are planning a weekend .meeting of the 107- member caucus in the province this fall. All declared Conservative candidates in the provinces- there are about 12 so far- would be invited. Party officials began planning the meeting after the recent weekend caucus here which some members say, was the best so far. "The new MPs came out of that caucus really enthusias- I tic." said one senior MP, "and if can go into Quebec with this same atmosphere it won't do us any harm.'' Planners originally thought of holding the meeting in Mon- I trcal, but now think it would have a bigger I larly in relation to press cov- j a smaller city. The likely choice is Quebec City. I The Conservatives now have I only two Quebec Wagner (Saint-Hyacinthe) and i Howard Grafftey (Brome-Mis- Both have maintained frantic schedules as they barn- storm the province with the FOR SALE Newly reno- vated, 3 bed- room home, sq. ft., located near schools, in Coaldale, fully landscaped, in- cludes carport.

"If we could organize a caucus that would lake the form of a pep rally for our can- didates there it would give them a big says a party official. Social events would be organized so the members wouldn't spend all their time behind closed doors. Should the meeting come off, officials say there likely would be a spring caucus somewhere on the Prairies. "With our members spread pretty well across the country, we now have more latitude to move these meetings says party whip Thomas M. Bell John-Lancas- He thinks these out-of-Ot- tawa meetings may be held ev- ery six months or so in differ- ent parts of the country. So far neither the Liberals or the New Democrats plan regu- lar caucus meetings outside Ot tawa, although the NDP held its first post-election caucus in To- ronto last November. However, both parties will make their presense felt in the West this summer. A Liberal western policy convention in Vancouver July 13-14 will come just 10 days ahead of the NDP national convention in the same city.

SALES HOURS: Daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sat. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 1510 Mayor Magrath Drive at 16th Ave. Dial 328-8861 televised hearings on the Water- gate affair began. Interviewed in Washington by the Montreal Gazette. Mr. Leop- old said: "I started the first week as staff assistant, then moved up to the title of consult- ant and finally became ah in- vestigator. "But I was really doing in- vestigative work from the first day. My responsibilities have grown as the confidence of the committee in me has grown." He said his job involves "in- terviewing certain people, fol- lowing up leads, studying docu- ments, things like that.' "The idea is to uncover stuff so that when the big people come in to testify, the com- mittee will have things to ask hem about." ASKED ERVIN FOR JOB Mr. Leopold completed his first year of law school this spring and wrote to Senator Er- vin when the creation of the committee was announced. "I originally volunteered to work for the committee for free and I got back a letter thanking me and saying they would look into it. "Later I wrote again and said I would be going to the U.S. anyway for the summer. I fig- ured I had maybe a two-per- cent chance of getting the job." He said Senator Ervin prob- ably had in mind a bit of impartiality, someone coming from the outside with a fresh outlook. "And I suppose he de- cided I bad already done some he said, referring to a study of used car dealerships he did under a federal Oppor- tunities for Youth grant and a look into the oil industry he un- dertook two years ago. He said he had originally planned to work only for the summer, then return to McGill but "it's just so interesting here that I would consider taking a sabbatical year from my stud- ies." SCATOAL OF CENTURY Of the Watergate case he says: "From a historical per- spective it's probably the big- gest scandal in the 20th cen- tury. "From a political perspective, it demonstrates the volatility of politics. Just a year ago it was the beginning of the era of the Republican Party. Now there's talk of the recommence- ment of a Democratic era." "Its such a sinister affair. The people closest to the high- est power in the country were doing what is clearly uncon- stitutional." Asked how he would feel if his investigation uncovered the one piece of evidence that could bring down the president of the United States, he would say only: "Whoever has broken the law, I hope I can cover it." Agreement made for north park DAWSON CITY, Y.T. (CP) Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien has announced that agreement has been reached with the British Colum- bia government for acquisition of a chunk of northwestern B.C. that will be included in the new Klondike goldrush international historic park. Mr. Chretien, in this city of 700 on the Yukon River "this week to attend celebrations hon- oring the 75th aniversary of the goldrush, said the B.C. gov- ernment has agreed in principle to surrender 80 square miles of province's chunk of the historic Chilkoot Trail. The United States government had previously designated its portion of the Chilkoot Trail, from the B.C. border through the Alaska panhandle to Dyea, as part of the park. The Chil- koot trail was the major route taken by stampeders into the goldfields in 1898. The agreement between Mr. Chretien and Jack Radford, B.C.'s minister of recreation and conservation, represents the first phase of creation of the new international park. The federal government has yet to designate two other ma- jor portions in the Yukon Terri- corridor along the Yu- kon River to Dawson City, and portions of the Klondike gold- fields outside of this commu- portions of the park. Mr. Chretien said the Chilkoot Trail will be marked by inter- pretive Signs in French and English. The American parks service, he said, has also agreed to post bilingual signs on its portion of the park. The B.C section of the park stretches 37 miles, from the Chilkoot Pass summit to Lake Bennett near the Yukon border. CRASH KILLS 3 ELIZABETHTOWN, N.Y.

(CP) A determined flock of birds Fri- day attacked a RCMP helicop- ter and prevented it from land- ing on a bird sanctuary island in Whitless Bay to rescue a stranded Canadian Wildlife Service officer. Robert Montgomery has been on the island nine days because rough seas and generally bad weather have made it impos- sible for a ship to pick him up. He had run out of food and water and the helicopter was dispatched to get him. It was managed to drop water and ra- tions before being forced back by the birds. Whitless Bay is about miles south of St. John's. 20 HEAVY RAINFALLS Some places on Vancouver Is- land have the heaviest rainfalls in Canada, with annual totals of more than 200 inches a year.
