24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, May 7, 1973---------- China exploring rights to continental shelf HONG KONG China apparently is considering nego- tiating the question of rights to oil resources from its continen- tal shelf with other countries adjoining the shelf, Energy Minister Donald Macdonald of Canada said today. This question was the main topic discussed in a 43-minutc i talk he had with Premier Chou daring a two-week visit I to China which ended today, Macdonald said. Chou asked many questions, 'Macdonald said, about the j stand Canada is taking in its continental shelf negotiations Two American states restore death penalty WASHINGTON (APV Con-1 necticut and Nevada restored! the death penalty in bills signed I Friday by Thomas J. Meskill and Mike O'Cailaghan, respectively. i Under the bills, capital pun- r ishment is mandatory for the murder of policemen or firemen on duty, murder committed for pay and murder committed by prisoners sen ing life sentences. In Connecticut, the death pen-' alty also is mandatory for slay- ings committed by a person previously ccnucted of murder, murder of a hostage by a kid- napper, and in the selling by a non-addict of cocaine, heroin or methadone to ore who died as a result of the sale. Additionally, the Nevada law- calls for capital punis'rrnent in bombing deaths and multiple "scheme murders.'' "Under the Connecticut act a jury, after finding a defendant guilty, must decide if there are any mitigating or aggravating factors in the case such as a defandant being under 18, under extreme duress or mentally im- paired. Death would be mandatory if there were no mitigating fac- tors but at least one aggravat- ing factor Struck from the final bill in Nevada were prousions calling for the death penalty in slaj- ings of the governor end judges and in deaths resulting from felonies such as robbery, rape and kidnapping. The U S. Supreme Court last nullified the application of previously existing death penal- ties as unconstitutional There has been no court test of death- penalty laws passed since then. f A A PkBJ SERVICE SALESMAN!

"This led me to believe he h interested in negotiations over the continental shelf affecting I Cliina." Macdonald said.

Mayors meeting today McGovern denies magazine article TORONTO (CP) Three months of organizing culmi- nated today in a meeting of mayors of cities across Canada to discuss their relationship with the federal government. Behind the one-day confer- ence was an idea by Mayor Da- vid Crombie of Toronto and Mayor Art Phillips of Van- couver. It was announced in mid-February when Mayor Phillips said one of its purposes would be to get more money from the federal government. Mayor Crombie began organ- izing the conference within weeks with help from Mayor Phillips and Mayor Walter Fiter Fitzgerald of Halifax. In the early stages of organ- iation, Major Phillips said di- rectors of the Canadian Feder- ation of Mayors and Municipal- ities (CFMM) had endorsed the idea and agreed to an informal pet-together with representa- tives invited from every city in Canada. Phillips at that time indicated money and taxes were the mam problems before the municipalities. He expressed the view then that the federal government, by releasing more money through the provinces to the cities, could relieve some of the property tax burden now falling on local residents. But as late as this weekend, the premiers of the country's two largest provinces poured cold water, in advance, on any i suggestion of a municipal in-1 come tax. Premier William is of On- j tario and Premier Robert Bou- rassa. after a weekend meeting in Toronto, said they would not welcome any proposal for such a tax should it arise from the mayors' meeting. WASHINGTON (AP) Sena- tor George McGovern has repu- diated an article in Sunday's New York Times magaine which quoted him as saying he nearly moved to Britain after his unsuccessful 1972 U.S. presi- dential campaign. The article by Joe McGinmss also quoted McGovern as say- ing he "never liked" his first running mate, Senator Thomas Eagleton, (Dem. Mo.) and that Eagleton "never would Show me the medical reports." "What a runaround he gave us on McGovern was quoted as saying. Eagleton withdrew as vice- presidential candidate after re- ports that he had been treated in hospital for nervous exhaus- tion.

"Joe McGinniss is a journalist who insinuated himself into the Nixon campaign in 1968 and later made a reputation with a sensational book based on spy- ing on his colleagues." McGinniss, author of the book The Selling of the President 1988, also quoted the senator as saying Mrs. McGovern had to leave her husband's campaign because she developed a "path- ological" hatred for the press due to the way her husband's campaign was covered. In his statement, McGovern said: "Now this kind of journalism may serve his (McGinniss's) purposes, but it does not serve the truth and I particularly de- plore the fact that the article defames my wife, Eleanor, and several of my friends and col- leagues in the Senate, most es- pecially Senator Eagleton." Eagleton was replaced by Sargent Shriver on the Demo- cratic ticket.
