Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 10, 1974 THE LETHIRIDQE HERALD 3 Nixon vows he won't resign CHICAGO (AP) President Nixon vowed Friday he will not resign because "I will not be a party to the destruction of the presidency of the United States." He again declared he is not guilty of any wrongdoing in the Watergate political espionage scandal. In a televised meeting with U.S. business executives, Nixon also issued a stern lecture to European leaders and a warning that "the day of the one way street is gone" in the Atlantic alliance. Nixon said he will not meet with the European heads of government until "they are willing to co-operate on the economic and political front." And he warned that Congress will be inclined to cut U.S. forces in Europe if an understanding is not reached soon on economic matters. His statements virtually ruled out a presidential trip to Europe next month for the signing of a new military agreement on the 25th anniversary of NATO. ANSWERS QUESTIONS Answering questions during the hour-long session, Nixon also. Arabs not to at- tach conditions to lifting of th6 oil embargo against the U.S. because this would slow U.S. peace efforts in the Middle East; he would not grant House of Representatives investigators of his possible impeachment a "fishing licence" to paw through confidential White House files; called for the House judiciary committee to follow the constitution in de- fining an impeachable offence and again urged prompt resolution of impeachment moves, that the back of the U.S. energy crisis has been broken, and inflation, although still troublesome, would ease this year; the immigration of Soviet Jews has increased sharply as U.S.-Soviet relations have improved and said it is "much better to have your voice heard inside the Kremlin because those walls are mighty thick." The session with members of the Chicago Executives' Club was Nixon's first public appearance in a northern city since last summer and was the first in a new campaign intended to restore confidence in his Watergate-shaken administration. DEMONSTRATORS GATHER More than anti-Nixon and pro-Nixon demonstrators mingled outside. Shouts of "Jail to the Chief" and "Throw the Bum Out" clashed with chants "God loves America, God Loves Nixon." Earlier, members of the Il- linois Impeach Nixon Com- mittee marched in the rain to the federal building with peti- tions, reported bearing more than 50.000 signatures calling for the president's ouster Inside the ballroom, Nixon said that "from a personal standpoint, resignation is an easy and "might satisfy some of my good, friendly partisans who would rather not have the problem of Watergate bothering them." But "resignation of this president on charges of which he is not guilty, resignation simply because he happened to be low in the polls, would forever change our form of government Fears raised port strike could cripple economy GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE SUNDAY SUNSET H L Pre.

Rail fares increased MONTREAL (CP) Cana- dian National Railways an- nounced Friday its passenger fares will increase 15 per cent April 1 to offset higher fuel, labor and food costs.

He urged the government to extend the act and set a formal termination date. The 34-year-old law originally was passed to help veterans who wanted to farm or fish and to help all veterans build their own homes. Now it is being used to help Second World War veterans buy farms and homes for retirement. A total of 536 civil servants are employed to run the program. Mr. MacDonald is expected to make a decision within the next two weeks on whether to extend the deadline. EXAMINES OPTIONS Sources said Friday- the minister is looking at a number of options following a Commons confidence vote on the issue this week. Mr. MacDonald promised to reconsider the Marcn 31 dead- line in return for New Demo- cratic support to turn back a Conservative non-confidence motion. Sources say there are a number of ways the minister could extend the act. But they said he has not yet made up his mind how to act or even whether to extend the deadline.

Roman Gralewicz. SIU president, said the strike to back contract demands of the crew members involved would halt 90 per cent of Canadian shipping on the Great Lakes. He said American or foreign shipping would not be affected. The CLCA represents 16 shipping firms which together operate 145 vessels. The largest company is Canada Steamship Lines Ltd. A spokesman for the CLCA said more than two-thirds of all cargo transported through the international seaway moves in Canadian vessels and the bulk of these are CLCA-owned. Mr. Gralewicz ordered a "couple of hundred" SIU men off the job Friday, and told the rest not to show up for the April 1 "fitting-out day" which heralds the new season. He said the union would pay their transportation costs home "to Newfoundland or wherever" since a long strike is expected. He announced the strike decision at a news conference following the collapse of mediation talks between the SIU and CLCA. Roland Doucet, the federal labor department's chief con- ciliator in Quebec, said after .the strike began that the two sides are "very far there's no two ways about that" He had advised the parties to end the talks until one was prepared to alter its position Mr. Gralewicz said his sailors are demanding 15-per- cent wage increases- in each year of a two-year contract for working as deckhands, oilers, wheelsmen and seamen.
