Fascinating situation created by Portugal OTTAWA Com- monwealth Secretary-General Arnold Smith said Friday the recent coup in Portugal has created a situ- which has provided a moral boost for African leaders. The Canadian diplomat said in a news conference that. pledges of self-determination for Portugal's African colonies by the new leaders are welcome and interesting. He said if the Portuguese leaders are interested in forming a as they have his secretariat can provide information on how the Commonwealth works.

He said creation of a com- monwealth by with genuine self-determination for could mean a negotiated solution to one of the most dangerous problems in the world today. On the question of he said the impact of inter- national sanctions has been significant in a gradual way. Rhodesia was feeling the living in isolation and being unable to borrow money internationally to replace aging capital equipment. The sanctions had proved heartening to African leaders and as a result of last August's Commonwealth conference here there had been an increase in investigations of violations of sanctions. Mr. Smith expressed concern over the eft'ed. on developing countries of the increasing price of fertilizers and other raw materials. He said there has been a tendency in some industrial countries to slow down on the provision of aid while the developing countries actually require an increase in aid. Grave problems confronted the developing countries that could threaten their ability to feed their people and provide social stability. India was an example of a country being hit with a Its balance of payments problems made it difficult to import anything other than high-priced the shortage of oil meant u was not available for irrigation machines needed for the green high prices of fertilizers that come from oil the green revolution and domestic food production was less than anticipated while imported grain had increased tremendously in price while being in supply. Mr. Smith warned that unless industrial countries take heed of the situation of the developing countries social in those countries might go into reverse.

YOUTH AND RECREATION GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA Lougheed limits campaign EDMONTON Premier Peter Lougheed will participate in the federal election campaign on behalf of the Progressive Conservative but only a limited a government spokesman said Friday. The Conservative premier will not travel outside the province to campaign and will restrict his activities inside the spokesman said. Details of the premier's participation were still being worked out. In the last federal election two years when Conservatives won all 19 of Alberta's Commons Mr. Lougheed restricted his campaigning to two days.

Nixon under pressure to resign NEW YORK Richard Nixon is coming under increasingly heavy pressure to step down from the presidency and free his country from the Watergate trauma. Developments in the 10 days since Nixon released his version of the controversial White House transcripts indicate that the Watergate affair is moving relentlessly towards one of two climactic the res- ignation of the president of his impeachment by the Congress. Day by support is falling away from the beleaguered president on all sides. He has come under mounting demands from key members of his own Republican party and from some of the major newspapers which were among his stau'nchest supporters in the 1968 and 1972 presidential election cam- paigns. One of the key questions for the days ahead is whether Nixon can afford to take the risk of resigning the with the possibility that if charges are proven against he might be forced to defend himself in court later. As a he is aware that once he leaves the White he becomes a private citizen with the possibility of facing the same sort of Watergate-related charges that have sent some two dozen of his former White House aides and Republican party workers before the courts. Many have ended up in jail. Nixon has the alternate choice of sitting out the political storm with the diminishing hope that Congress may finally decide there is insufficient evidence to bring impeachment charges. Even if the House of Repre- sentatives decides to return a bill of Nixon still would have to face trial before the 100-member Senate. If convicted there of crimes against the he would be stripped of all the protective fabric of the presidential office. But there always is the possibility that the public- might feel the impeachment ordeal is punishment enough and that further prosecution should be suspended. It would take a constitutional lawyer to sort out the legal ramifications of resignation and impeachment since the field is a relatively virgin one in American politics. There has been only one presidential impeach- ment in the long history of the republic and in that case the President Andrew was acquitted by a single vote. That was in 1868. There always exists the possibility of a political commitment or not uncommon in being struck under which INixon would agree to resign with a promise of ummunity from future prosecution.
