Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 2, 1974-THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD-27 Despite pleas, rapeseed production may slacken Ex-Nixon aides indicted These four men were indicted Friday by a federal grand jury in Washington i on charges they tried to block the Watergate investigation. From left are former presidential aides H. R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman, former White House special counsel Charles W. Colson and former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell. Interpreting the News Watergate indictments unprecedented action WASHINGTON (CP) President Nixon, who has insisted all along that Watergate belongs in the courts, may have found little comfort when the political espionage scandal finally reached the judicial chambers. Three of the men who had stood at his right hand in the early years of his adminis- tration now stand accused of perjury and obstruction. Four others, only slightly less accessible to the president, face similar charges. the charge of perjury against one of the seven has left a shadow of doubt over the president's own recollection of a crucial conversation. With the indictments against H. R. Haldeman. John Ehrlichman and John Mitchell, political historians aver. Watergate takes its place as probably the most BROWN CATTLE CO.

The charges of lying and perjury are among the most serious to have swirled around the White House. And the rwmber and stature of those involved is unprecedented. ISSUES SECRET REPORT Speculation as to whether the president is if so. how abated somewhat as the Watergate case dragged on. It was revived, however, when the federal grand jury that handed down the indictments Friday also handed over a sealed and secret report. Observers began asking whether that report implicates the president. One charge is that Haldeman lied in quoting the president that "it would be wrong" to raise million in hush, money for the Watergate burglars. Now the question is being raised as to how the president could he had at a news Haldeman's recollection. Sub- sequently it was found that a tape recording of the conversation existed and was in the hands of the grand jury. Observers are asking whether the president is modifying his support of his two former top aides Haldeman and if so. why. When the two resigned a year ago. Nixon called a news conference and said publicly: "Today, in one of the most difficult decisions of my presi- dency. I accepted the resigna- tions of two of the finest public servants it has been my privilege to know." REMAINS SILENT Friday. when the indictments were handed down. Nixon was personally silent. Through a press aide he issued a statement that he is confident all Americans will join him in "recognizing Jh'at all those indicted are innocent unless proof of guilt is established in the courts." And there have been other utterances that may return to haunt Nixon: "I will not place the blame on people whose zeal exceeded their judgment and who may have done wrong in a cause they deeply believed to be right.... That statement was made long before the case reached the courts and some critics arc beginning to ask just how much culpability the president is ready to assume now. It was almost a year ago when Nixon said: "In any organization the man at the top must bear the responsibility. 75 YEARLING CROSSBRED BULLS FOR SALE SELECT YOUR CHOICES FOR BREEDING THAT WILL PROFITABLY INCREASE YOUR WEANING WEIGHTS AND SEE THESE CROSSBRED BULLS 45 SIMMENTAL 12 LIMOUSIN 13 BROWN SWISS 5 CHIANINA MANALTA HOLDINGS LTD.

A. C. McPhail of Brandon, who is vice president of the Manitoba Rapeseed Growers' Association, estimated that 50 million bushels would be harvested this year, down from 55 million bushels last year. The reasons, he said, included good prices for basic grains and transportation problems. "We don't want to produce more than the transportation facilities can handle." Last year's harvest of 55 million bushels from 3.1 million acres seeded compared with 100 million bushels from 5.3 million acres in the 1971-72 crop year. James McAnsh of Vancouver, executive director of the Rapeseed Association of Canada, said while the farmers overshot their production in 1971, the current market demand "can comfortably absorb 75 million bushels." But Mr. McAnsh and representatives of processors and marketing agencies agreed that rapeseed production is unlikely to meet the demand this year. Lome Clapson. a grain trader with Cargill Grain Co. of Winnipeg, advised farmers to take a longer-range view in deciding which crops they want to grow. The rapeseed association's annual convention, which ended Friday, re-elected John Banfield, vice president of Western Canada Seed Processors Ltd. of Lethbridge. as president, and elected Gordon Graham of Newdale. Man., president of the Manitoba Rapeseed Growers' Association, as vice president. Mr. Banfield was one of the processors who told farmers that oilseed crushing is one of the fastest growing industries in Canada but is plagued with a shortage of rapeseed. He called on farmers to increase rapeseed production and said by 1978, 150 million bushels would be required. ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) A Ku Klux Klan member, stricken with terminal leu- kemia, held a deathbed news conference and said he bombed 10 school buses in Pontiac, Mich., in August, 1971. Elmer Tackett, 54, said yesterday he set and lit dyna- mite fuses that destroyed the buses the day before a court- ordered school desegregation busing plan was to go into ef- fect. Tackett, a motel manager, held the news conference in his hospital room here at the urging of his lawyer. His statement was recorded by a court stenographer. He admitted being a member of the Ku Klux Klan at the time of the bombing and said he carried out the job on the instructions of an anonymous caller with the aid of a masked accomplice whom, he said, he could not identify. Five other men were con- victed in federal court last year of conspiracy to bomb the buses. All are serving prison sentences. Tackett, a Kentucky-born former coal miner, said doctors have given him two weeks to live. He said he made the statement about the bombing "to clear my conscience." He said the five convicted men did not participate in the actual bombing.
