Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 4, 1t74 THE LETHMIDOE HERALD 5 TED HEATH: Profile of the man, who shouldn't even be a PM Edward Heath By ARTHUR L. GAVSHON LONDON (AP) Edward Heath gambled on a second term as British prime minister by calling a showdown who-rules-Britain election, and lost. But the 57-year-old Conservative, the first Tory to work his way to the top without the benefit of an important family and a private-school education, does not give up easily. When Thursday's election showed Heath without the clear mandate he sought for his get-tough policies with striking coal miners, he told the Queen that he intends, nevertheless, to stay in office. His success will depend on his relations with the Liberal and other smaller parties in the face of a Labor opposition that has won more seats than the Tories. By the traditions of British Conservatism, Heath has no business being prime minister. His acquired accent sometimes lapses to remind listeners of his humble origins. His father is a Kentish carpenter; his late mother was a parlor maid. ATTENDED OXFORD Heath never had the social advantages of a private school like Eton but worked his way to Oxford on scholarships won at public schools. He went to Balliol College, Oxford, on a music scholarship. When war came he joined as a gunner and rose to colonel. Peace took him first into civil service, then to a church newspaper, next into banking. He was elected to the House of Commoms in 1950 and was the Conservative party's floor manager during the Suez crisis in 1956, when Britain and France invaded Egypt. In July, 1965, he was chosen to succeed Sir Alec Douglas-Home as Tory leader, and for five years he duelled with Labor Minister Harold Wilson over the affairs of state. He was a man who could speak on equal terms with the rising new breed of classless men who mastered the complexities of the technological revolution. And the once-shy politician who used to hate what he called the "charlatanries of politics" began to examine them. He set out to project himself to the best possible advantage and shed his awkwardness. He got his party aides to hire professionals to make sure he looked good on television. And in 1970 it paid off when Heath and the Tories defeated Wilson in a general election.

Nobtofbrd, Alberta TOLISO Northern Indians seeking improved medical services THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES HAVE Immediate Job For BONNYVILLE (CP) The death of a two-nionth-old Indian baby who, the mother says, was refused admission to the local hospital has aroused outraged protests from Indians in Northern Alberta who are demanding better medical services. "We're human beings, not said Chief Theresa Gadwa of the Kehwin Reserve. "We'll make sure it's the last time this happens to our children." The baby, Armanda John, died last Sunday at the reserve, 24 hours after being refused admission to the hospital. The infant's mother, Yvonne, said her child had been suffering from diarrhea and fever for three days before she went to St. Louis Hospital. A nurse looked at the baby, called a doctor on the telephone, and then declared the baby to be healthy, the mother said. The cause of death had not been determined. An autopsy' report is to be released within two or three weeks. Hospital Administrator Sister Florence Verrier said a hospital cannot admit patients without the consent of a With such permission, "no one is ever she said in an interview. Chief Gadwa said medical service for Indians at the hospital is "extremely slow." She personally had to wait lor hours for treatment. She said only native people have to wait for these long periods, the result of discrimination by some Bonnyville doctors. Helen Gladue, president of the Treaty Voice of Alberta Association, said chiefs and councillors from 11 northern reserves registered loud complaints this week about the poor quality of medical and dental services for their people. She said "something had better be done fast" to improve the quality of health service or native people will soon take strong action. She did not say what action might be taken. "We've had enough of this shoddy type of she said. USED FOR VENEER Poplar lumber is used for veneer, small woodenware. inside work in furniture and slack cooperage.

Postal rates up in U.S. WASHINGTON postmaster-general launched new United States postal rates Friday with a warning that strong economic pressures might drive rates even higher. The new rates, effective midnight Friday night, raised basic rates by two cents each to 10. cents for first-class letters, 13 cents for air mail and eight cents for postcards. Rates for parcels and various classes of bulk mail also increased. Postmaster-General E. T. Klassen told a news conference that if fuel and costs rise, we're going to have financial problems." The new rates are part of the postal service's attempt to become self-supporting, as or dered by Congress in 1970. AREA SURVEYED Southern Quebec was sur- veyed into townships around 1792. GOP nervously awaiting byelections in Ohio, Calif. By WALTER R. MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) Marked by two defeats and worried by Watergate, Republicans will be watching nervously as voters in Ohio and California cast ballots Tuesday in two House of Representatives bye- special elec- tions in the United States. Without the scandals, few but professional politicians would have paid close attention to early balloting scattered by chance in a half- 'dozen congressional districts across the United States. With Watergate compounded by energy and economic woes, the byelections have become po- litical laboratories, the first measurement of voter attitudes in advance of the national elections next Nov. 5. The elections Tuesday are in districts that normally are safe Republican territory: Cincinnati, Ohio and its eastern suburbs, and the Santa Barbara, Calif., area north of Los Angeles. The last test was in a district that deemed safe for the Vice-President Gerald Ford. It went Democratic. In Ohio's 1st Congressional District, the contest is between Republican Willis Gradison, 44, and Democrat Thoma Luken, 48, both former Cincinnati mayors. Democrats have won that seat three times in this century, most recently in 1964. ONE VERSUS SEVEN In California's 13th District, Republican Robert Lagomar- sino, 74, a state senator, is heavily favored over a field of seven Democratic candidates. The district is as Republican as they come. The late Representative Charles Nixon contradicted By BROOKS JACKSON WASHINGTON (AP) A new Watergate indictment in- directly challenges President Nixon's version of his role in the wiretapping cover-up. The grand jury said Friday that former presidential chief of staff H. R. Haldeman lied when he swore Nixon rejected the idea of raising hush money _ for the Watergate burglars. Nixon has said Haldeman's testimony is accurate, and has given an almost-identical version himself. The grand jury also said that the cover-up continued even after March 21, 197-3. That is the day the president said he received new information about the burglary and ordered his aides to "get the story out." The president's chief accuser, former White House counsel John Dean, was not among the seven men indicted, despite public accusations by Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott that Dean lied under oath. Dean previously pleaded single conspiracy 'count 'in the cover-up, and is awaiting sentencing. MONEY DEMANDED A key element in Dean's testimony at the Senate Watergate committee's hearings last summer dealt with Nixon's reaction to demands for additional money by Howard Hunt. Dean said Nixon told him raising the money would be "no problem." Haldeman and Nixon both said the president told Dean it would be "wrong." The grand jury said Haldeman lied. Hunt and the other six bur- glars remained silent through their trial in January, 1973. Friday's indictment said that a total of was raised by the president's men and paid to the wiretappers and their lawyers through late February, 1973. But as Hunt's sentencing ap- proached, he passed word to the White House that he wanted more. Dean said Hunt threatened to tell about the wiretapping and about other "seamy dings" he had done earlier while on the White House staff. These included the 1971 break-in by Hunt and others at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist. Dean testified that he told the president about Hunt's de- mands, and estimated it could take as much as million to keep all the wiretappers quiet. He testified that Nixon's only reaction was that raising million would be "no problem." SCHEME REJECTED Haldeman and Nixon both said Nixon went on to add that it would be wrong to pay hush money, thereby rejecting the scheme instead of condoning it. Haldeman, testifying before the Senate committee last July, said: "The president said 'there is no problem in raising a million dollars, we can do that, but it would be wrong.'" He swore he listened to a tape recording of the conversation, and that he was "absolutely positive" Nixon told Dean it would be wrong to raise the money. The grand jury said Halde- man committed perjury when he quoted Nixon as saying "it would be wrong" and when he said he heard those words on the tape. The grand jury also listened to a tape recording of the meeting. This conflicts with Nixon's own endorsement of Halde- man's testimony. At a news conference last Aug. 22, Nixon said "his statement is accu- rate." Teague was elected to 10' terms there, gaining 74 per cent of the vote in 1972. Under the California system, the election Tuesday puts everybody on the ballot at once. If one candidate gets 50 per cent of the votes, he wins. Otherwise, there will be a runoff election April 2. Democrats hope that Water- gate, energy and the economy will help them force a runoff in which their candidate would go head-on against Lagomarsino. Watergate is a factor, and may be emphasized by the in- dictment Friday of seven men who were White House or campaign aides to President Nixon. Another election is scheduled April 23 in the 8th District of Michigan, to replace Republican James Harvey, who resigned to become a federal judge. The district has tended 'to vote Republican, but Democratic prospects may be good. Still another election is likely in California later, since Representative William Maillard, a Republican, has been appointed U.S. ambassador to the Organ- ization of American States. He has won 11 consecutive terms from a district including part of San Francisco and its northern suburbs.
