The Nixon guessing game continues Will he run, or will he not? By ROD CURRIE WASHINGTON (CP) - It may Beem premature, but a great deal is being said and written on whether or not President Nixon will seek re-election in 1972. He himself isn't saying � word. The speculation comes to a head at a time when Nixon's popularity, according to various polls, is at an all-time low despite a wide range of schemes to improve his image. Bt ot . . . ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS 426 - 6th Street S. GRAND OPENING Thursday - 9:30 a.m. FREE GIFT - PRIZES In ,the view of. many observers, the majority of the American people simply do not believe Richard Nixon any more; and Congress, as has been amply demonstrated, does not respond to his leadership and won't bow before the prestige of the office he holds. It isn't a personal thing. Hardly anyone, it seems, doubts Nixon's sincerity; no one is without sympathy as he carries the intolerable burden of office, weighed by the Indochina war, unemployment and inflation. It is simply that many Americans have become wary of any administration. Lyndon Johnson, elected by the greatest landslide in United States. history in 196*, was driven out of the White House a few years later by what was termed his lack of credibility over the then Vietnam war. STICKS BY 'PLAN' In almost a replay of those days, Nixon and his spokesmen are insisting that they "have a plan" for getting out of Indochina; that "the plan has been implemented." While the administration calls the pullback in Laos an "orderly withdrawal" and "mobile manoeuvring," for instance, men in the field and the television eye daily tell Americans it is a rout. Although Nixon promised a surplus of $15,000 million, he eventually produced the worst Alberta's Great Moments Starring the famous players from your lovable Lethbridge label Oil discovered at Leduc When that crazy cast of characters from the Lethbridge label go to work on Alberta's history, anything can happen.

While he paints glowing pictures of schemes to "turn the economy around," unemployment and inflation go up and up. Evidence of the new mood- and strength-of the American public was the Senate vote last week virtually killing the multi-billion-dollar supersonic transport plane. Nixon had again put his prestige on the line, publicly advocating a favorable vote and privately phoning and writing wavering senators right up to the 11th Hour. What happened was that the American public was against the idea and rebelled. As one long-time SST supporter, Senator Clinton P. Anderson (Dem. N.M.) put it: "I read my mail," which was running heavily against the scheme. As some observers read it, taxpayers will not take on the financial burden of such projects, while also paying for the war, when the government is saying it cannot help bail out bankrupt cities and cannot provide such things as broader health care for lack of money. WORKS ON IMAGE In a campaign to win broader popular support, the man who has been called "a very private president," has stepped into the limelight-summoning a handful of women journalists to his office for tea, appearing on a television show to chat about daughter T r i c i a's impending wedding, engaging in a two-hour television conversation with commentator Howard K. Smith. But he didn't unbend much-he admits he's unusually stiff-necked for a politician-and the over-all message was pretty much the same. Indeed, by the time he got to the Smith program, many in the country were no longer even listening. The audience rating was said to be unusually low for a presidential appearance, many having tuned in two old movies appearing on the competing networks. The thing seems to be that it isn't Nixon as a person that has the voters upset, it is his war policy-as was the case in Lyndon Johnson's disaster. All Nixon talk of a "generation of peace" and the war to end wars just doesn't carry much weight. The American people, writes James Restan in the New York Times, "are passing judgment not on personality but on policy and they obviously don't like what they see." BEER TRADITION YOU CAN TASTI  FROM THC HOUSE OF LtTHBRIDGE By JOHN LcBLANC LONDON (CP) - A military study group casts doubt on the idea that the Soviet Union is engaged upon territorial expansion. This conclusion is reached by the Institute for Strategic Studies, an independently-fi-n a n c e d international centre based here for the study of defence and world security. Its "strategic Survey 1970" was made public Monday. Former Canadian prime minister Lester B. Pearson is president of the institute, which has a 45-country membership. "Soviet naval activity reached new heights during 1970. . . .," says an official summary of the report. "The general impression was that the Soviet Union, provided for the first time with an effective long-range navy, was expanding its political influence at relatively low cost in and around the Middle East and the Indian Ocean." But it adds: "Despite Soviet naval activity and the heavy Soviet commitment to the United Arab Republic (Egypt), there is as much reason to doubt the proposition that the Soviet Union is determinedly expansionist as to question the complementary assumption that the United States is hell-bent upon withdrawing from the world. BEHAVIOR CAUTIOUS "The Soviet Union has increased its military strength and has sometimes, as hi the case of Cuba, been prepared to take political risks in testing American will., "But it has also behaved with relative caution in such areas as Europe, Africa and Asia. "Meanwhile, although the Nixon doctrine implies a tendency to limit commitments, the U.S. remains deeply involved in all the major areas of the world and shows no real taste for an anachronistic isolationism." Examining the value of various deterrent weapons, the report says that importance ^is' switching to the submarine-carried ballistic missiles. "It is increasingly obvious," it states, "that fixed land-based intercontinental ballistics missiles face obsolescence and that more attention must shift to deterrence based on submarine-launched strategic missiles." As this develops, the survey adds, the techniques of anti-submarine warfare will become critical. But it concludes, after a survey of sea war.techniques, that "there is no reason to expect that anti-submarine warfare can destroy the credibility of deterrence founded upon the ballistic-missile submarine." AFFECTS JAP PLANS Dealing with China, the survey says its launching of space satellites has made it more apparent that this country, already a great conventional military power, must become a more important factor in the strategic nuclear equation Chinese attitudes may have an important effect in shaping Japanese defence p o 1 i c y -a n d Japan has the ability to develop nuclear forces. The institute, analysing the effect of economic factors on military events, says: "The international dangers of economic conflict are demonstrated by the way in which economic nationalism and competing commercial protectionism threaten relations between Western Europe, Japan and the United States. "But internal pressures may also affect security. Inflation ; changed the balance of Western defence budgets and, in France and West Germany, the rapid rise of operational and manpower costs has resulted* in the severe reduction of capital investment in weapons and other equipment. "The French nuclear weapons program has been heavily hit by cost increases. Development cost of strategic missiles el-ready exceeds estimates by 75 per cent and France will be unable, at best, to keep more than one missile submarine on patrol until after 1975."

That's what we expected." Lt.-Col. Paul J. Tate, 48, said he spoke for himself and his wife, Doris. A jury had just decreed death for Charles M a n s o n and three young women in the August, 1969, murders of Miss Tate and six other persons. "There's still justice," Tate said in a telephone interview. "Naturally I wanted the death penalty, they took my daughter and my grandchild." Miss Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, was eight months pregnant. "But there's no jubilation in something like this, no sense of satisfaction," her father said. "It's more a feeling that justice has been done."
