Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 LETHBPi uE HERALD May 1974 White House files still subject to raids By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON Despite President Nixon's release of pages of transcript from taped White House conver- the raids on executive files and tapes by those seeking evidence of criminal wrongdoing are far from over. It remains one of the abiding mysteries in Nixon's handling of the political scandals that he has repeatedly stressed his determination--as he did Monday put Watergate behind him while pursuing a course that inevitably left the affair wide open. Politician that he Nixon would have known that the Democratic majority on the House of Representatives judiciary committee was unlikely to be mollified by his de- cision to give the committee transcripts instead of the tapes it subpoenaed for its inquiry into his possible impeachment. Objections by many committee members are even more likely because 11 of the 42 tapes under subpoena are not covered in the transcripts. Nor did Nixon address the question of other tapes and evidence the committee has sought since asking for the original 42 recordings And lawyer that he Nixon would have been aware that releasing those transcripts has begged the question of a re- sponse to a threatened subpoena by special prosecutor Leon Jaworski for another 64 tape-recorded conversations from the White House. The special prosecutor has given the White House until Thursday to respond to his otherwise he will seek a subpoena And a Jaworski subpoena is possibly even more ticklish for the president than one from the judiciary com- mittee. The House judiciary committee would face an untested legal and constitution thicket if it attempted to enforce a sub- pogha. on the other is already supported by rulings from U.S. District Judge John Sirica and the U.S. Court of Appeals after an earlier bid by his Archibald to get evidence from the White House. Jaworski's office had made it even before Nixon spoke Monday that transcripts will not do. They will insist on under the so-called rule of U S a rule that requires the best and most original form of evidence available for use in a trial And the tapes Jaworski seeks are for use in the case of seven former Nixon aides facing trial in September on a variety of Watergate-related charges. Apart from the feeling that the president is trying to decide for himself what evidence will be available to in- vestigating his Democratic members of the judiciary committee may find other weaknesses in the Nixon proposal to substitute transcripts for tapes. One weakness is in the suggested method of verification. Although committee chairman Peter Rodino and senior Re- publican Edward Hutchinson command they are not as thoroughly briefed on the impeachment case as the com- mittee's senior staff lawyers. Impeachment may be the most serious question on the congressmen's but it is not the only one. Pensions bill cleared OTTAWA Canada Pension Plan amend- ments providing for equal treatment of male and female contributors without a means test to those 65 to 69 hurdled another parliamentary barrier Tuesday with approval by the Commons welfare committee. The bill will now return to the Commons for fma' passage before going to the Senate. Although the bill was warmly approved by committee members of all New Democratic veteran Stanley Knowles warned that persons 65 to 69 who now are eligible for CPP benefits without the means test should carefully consider their positions. Under the present per- sons aged 65 to 69 must pass a means test and have pensions reduced if they have earnings from other sources. The changes would allow anyone in that age working or to receive benefits without the test. But Mr. Knowles said some persons 65 to 69 may overlook the fact that if they begin to receive they can no longer make contributions from employment earnings they may have. Under the benefits in- crease with the length of time that contributions are made. Persons who are employed after 65 can therefore build up their future benefits by working and continuing to make contributions into the plan is no doubt they should think twice and see if they want to carry on paying and increase their Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde said. He added the government would be' publicizing changes to the act Under the present male survivors of female contributors only received benefits if they were dependent upon their spouses' earnings BAPCO LATEX VELVET-LUSTRE ENAMEL...
