Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _______ Wednesday, May 24, 1972 _ THE lETHBRIBGf MIRA1D Premier Robert Bourassa says he hopes his former cun- sttulional adviser will be just as objective in his new role as-a member of the separatist Parti Quebecois as he was as a critic of federalism. The premier had been asked to comment on an announce- ment in Montreal that Claude Morin has joined the PQ. Mr. Morin said as chief con- stitutional adviser to four Quebec premiers over the last 10 years he had hoped Quebec could find its place within Con- federation. But he had come to the conclusion that "never in the political regime that we know at present will Quebec really be able to be itself." Former senator Eugene Mc- Carthy, the anti-war candidate who challenged strongly for the Democratic presidential nomi- nation in 1968, has endorsed Senator George McGovern of South Dakota for the party nomination this year. McCarthy referred to "the overriding importance of the Vietnam war issue" in a state- ment ueging his supporters in the California primary June 6 not to vote for him but to cast their ballots for McGovern. The bulk of former FBI dir- ector J. Edgar Hoover's 500 estate has been willed to his closest friend, Clyde A. Tolson, columnist Maxine Che sire reported in the Washing- ton Post. A will filed last week in U.S district court for the Distric1 of Columbia listed Tolson ai chief beneficial? and executor of Hoover's estate. Tolson, 72 was associate director of tin FBI when Hoover died May but resigned almost immcdi ately. The Post said Tolson ha moved into the Hoover home in Washington, which was part o the estate. The house is value at Astronaut Dunn Eisele. com- mand-module pilot of the Apol- lo 7 space flight, is in training to become Peace Corps direc- tor in Thailand. "I've always been a big fan of the Peace Eisele, 41. said in an interview. "It is one of the most productive and most beneficial operations our government has." Eisele. who will retire as a colonel from the air force July 1 after 20 vears' service, said he thought" about the Peace Corps when he began planning for his future after the mili- tary. He will take over the job in mid-June while on leave from the air force. Eisele said he wanted to join the Peace Corps effort to re- lieve hunger, ignorance, dis- ease and poverty in developing nations. A purse of had been proposed for a showdown pool match between Willie Masconi and Minnesota Fats, but it was scratched temporarily at least after they traded long-distance insults this week. The to ante up for the pot with 'inner takes made y Masconi, 58, of lladdon heights, N.J., who claims he ivon many pool and billiards ecords while he was champion wo decades ago.

He denied he ever received any invitation to play four nights in a downtown Philadelphia hotel. Mark Vinson, who is hand- ling arrangements, said "Fats said he'd play anybody for the cash, so where is hcV" "He chickened out." Mas- coni said in Philadelphia. "He is a phony." Wanderone, denying he's ducking the match, told a re- porter'by telephone that Mas- coni knows "I'm playing in a tournament this week in John- son City 111., the pool capital of the world." OTTAWA (CP) A bill now icfore the Commons seeks to jan newspaper publication of 'an article, editorial, advertise- ment or announcement of a par- ,isan political character" on any federal election day and on .he day before voting. The amendment is contained in the bill dealing with election campaign expenses now at sec- ond-reading stage in the Com- mons. The restriction would apply to federal byelections as general elections. There have long been restric- tions on broadcasting on polling day and before. The Broadcast- ing Act prohibits broadcasting of "a program, advertisement or announcements of a partisan character" about any election or referendum on polling day or on ihe day preceding voting. This applies to municipal and provincial elections as well as to federal. The Canada Elections Act, re- vised in 1970, contains a similar ban. The amendment seeks to eliminate the broadcasting ref- erence from the elections act, on the grounds it is covered by the Broadcasting Act, and to substitute one dealing with newspapers, defined as any pe- riodical publication "that is p u b 1 i s h e d or disbursed and made public weekly or more often." For general elections, the ban applies to "any for byelections to a paper circu- lated generally in the electoral district concerned. The amendments would pro- vide that any person who pub- lishes on the two days con- cerned "an article, editorial, ad- vertisement or announcement of a partisan political character in relation to the election or byelection, as the case may be, is guilty of an offence against this act." Penalty, on summary convic- tion, is a fine not exceeding TORONTO (CP) Owner-oc- cupants of single-family dwell- ings in North Pickering will he able to live rent-free for two years after selling their houses to the province, the Ontario gov- ernment announced Tuesday. The plan was included in de- tails revealed by the govern- ment in its aim to acquire acres for development of the new community of North Pick- ering, situated "south of the pro- posed new Toronto airport about 20 miles east of the city. Location of the airport has re- sulted in a strong public outcry from residents of the Pickering area concerned with expropria- tion. A government statement de- scribing the rent-free scheme i said that after the property has been sold to the government, the seller must "pay the prop- erly taxes promptly and keep the property in good condition. "There will be no rent to pay." It said that after two years, .he government would then be in a position to tell the house- holder whether his properly would be needed for the airport and town development or whether the house could remain where it is. The statement said some houses will likely be found to be compatible with the project and move will not be necessary. If this is the case, "you will be entitled to buy it back at the price you were paid." If tile house is incompatible with the development, the gov- ernment will pay moving expen- ses to living accommodation outside the Pickering area. It also stated that the govern- ment is "willing to discuss" the possibility of moving houses to other locations within the com- munity. The statement said the rent- free scheme was devised "to en- courage residents to stay in their present homes as long as possible." Planners hope current resi- dents will stay on to become- part of the new community.
