VANCOUVER A stunning victory for a reform group of unions at the Canadian Labor Congress biennial convention Thursday was greeted by wild cheering as new faces took over three of the four top congress executive jobs. Although Joe an in- cumbent on the four-man per- manent was chosen congress as two candidates backed by the outgoing CLC executive were defeated by large majorities as the delegates showed displeasure with the labor organization's establishment. Even Mr. Morris faced unexpected opposition as more than one-third of the delegates cast votes for a virtually-unknown Gilbert Mac- Intyre from N.S. The ballots cast against Mr. Morris reflected a protest Mr Maclntyre said.

The resolution now is referred to the incoming executive for appropriate action. QFL president Louis a dominant figure at this was strong in his praise for the support the Quebec members received from their English-speaking counterparts.

The Washington Post pub- lished Thursday the com- mittee's transcript of a key Watergate of Sept. between the former White House counsel John Dean and Nixon's former chief of H. R. Haldeman. The Post reported the contents of a tape the com- mittee heard a June conversation be- tween Haldeman and former attorney-general John Mitchell. Presidential spokesmen criticized Thursday's accounts of part of the Sept. 15 conversation that appeared in The Post and the Boston Globe. The Post printed the White House transcript of the Sept. 15 conversation and the judiciary committee version side-by-side. The side-by-side comparison covered almost two and a half pages. The tapes were among those turned over to the committee by a Watergate grand jury and kept under strict rules of se- crecy. the Boston Globe reported today that committee chairman Peter Rodino is so concerned about leaks that he ordered all of the committee's transcripts of tapes impounded as committee members left the hearing room Thursday. On Thursday night members of the committee heard Nixon complain on a White House tape that the Watergate burglars probably would get long sentences while a black who held up a store would get two years. The committee also got word from White House lawyers that it would get a response today or Monday to its request for evidence relating to the ITT antitrust settlement and political contributions from the dairy industry. If the material is not turned the panel is expected to issue a subpoena.

It turned out the government has already begun interviewing applicants for the post described by the opposition as a dictatorship for one-eighth of the province. But Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell has consistently maintained that unusual powers are necessary to co-ordinate the delivery of services to the fast-expanding oil sands region.

''Regrettably we're trodding into new ground in ground that shouldn't be trod at Opposition Leader Bob Clark said in summing up the opposition's objections.
