Robert Giffard, the navy doc tor who was largely responsibl for early emigration to from Perche was commemo rated at a gathering held hers recently by the Perche-Canad Association. Jean-Louis Gagnon, Canada' ambassador to UNESCO Paris whose ancestors come from thu area, told the gather ing: "This country is so pictur esque I have difficulty under standing why my ancestors lef it." Giffard first saw New France in 1620 when, as a 31-year-olc doctotr and apothecary, he join ed the French navy as a sur gson on a ship sailing to the New World. He stayed for six years ant built a small house near the Beauport River a few miles from Quebec. He returned to his native Perche to practise medicine anc in 1628 married Marie Reg- nouard. A few months later the couple set out for New France jbut the ship was captured bj the English and they returned to France. Six years later Giffard's dream came true when he re- turned to New France, taking with him a group of Percherons to work toward colonization oi the New World. La Compagnie de la Nou- velle-France, which was en- gaged in the fur trade, granted him a seigniory near the Beau- port. River where he had built hi? house 14 years earlier. Giffard and some of his col- leagues returned several times to Perche to persuade their fel- low Frenchmen to follow them to New France. Some of the families he brought to Canada were narnsd Cloutier, Guyon (now called Guimont, Mercier, Tremblay. Chauvin, Rivard, Gagnon, Crete, Trudel, Givoux and Vachon. Giffard died in 1663 after spending more than half his life in New France working among the colonists from Perche and others, including the Hurons. CHURCH CLOSED MADRID (AP) The Church of Espiritu Santo was ordered closed to the public because it was allegedly used for political meetings instead of religious matters, the Europa Press news agency said. Reaching to 1976 Watergate tentacles very long An analysis By R. W. APPLE Jr. New York Times Service WASHINGTON Inevitably, careers will be both enhanced and destroyed by the Water- gate affair. And not only on the most obvious, immediate level for example, the dis- appearance of H. R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman from the White House inner circle, and the consequent promotion into influential roles of Leonard Garment and Gen. Alexander M. Haig Jr. The whole cast of political principals for 1976 has already Seen affected, and will be further affected with every day's fresh revelations. It is conceivable, of course, that Watergate will have faded 'rom the public consciousness by the time, 34 months from now, when the next presiden- tial sweepstakes begin; but, ;o the politicians most intimate- y concerned, it appears far more likely that the great events through which the na- ion is now living will go far ;oward deciding who the 1976 candidates will be. Presuming that President remains in office :hrough his present term a presumption, incidentally, that political professionals are in- creasingly reluctant to make how does the lineup look to- day? Both parties, unless the Watergate case proves to be as transitory as silly putty, will be searching for a demonstra- "clean" national candidate. Among the Republicans, the conventional wisdom has sud- denly been turned upside down: close association with the White House is now seen as a burden rather than as a pre- cious advantage. Govs. Nelson Rockefeller of New York and Ronald Reagan of California, the ancient symbols of irrecon- cilable left and right, sudden- ly find Albany and Sacramento valuable havens from the re- crimination and vindictiveness of Washington. Both are now regarded, within the party, de- spite their ages, as extremely serious condidates. Rockefeller appears, at the moment, the most likely stand- ard-bearer for those Republi- can moderates who feel so vin- dicated by the downfall of their adversaries on the White House staff, such as Sens. Charles Mathias of Maryland and Ed- ward W. Brooke of Massat- chusetts. The only other possi- bility in that wing of the party, Sen. Charles Percy of Illinois, does not appear to have con- vinced his peers that he should be seriously considered, despite his early and outspoken sug- gestions that the whole Water- gate episode should be more rigorously examined. Rocke- feller, if the activities of his agents are any indication, is already running flat-out. Reagan's chances would seem to depend on whether he can recapture the allgiance of the Republican right, which he surrendered to Vice Presi- dent Spiro T. Agnew in 1969. Should Agnew somehow suc- ceed to the presidency before 1976, Reagan would be shut out; Agnew would be as invulner- able to challenge for nomina- tion as was Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964. But if Nixon continues in office, Reagan's remoteness from Washington and his non- political image might enable Here are the ANSWEP-S for your NEWS QUIZ PART I: 1-William Leonard Higgitt; 2-Short Take Off an-j Landing; PART II: 1-d; 2-C; 3-O; 5-b PART III: 1-e; 2-c; 3-d; 4-b; 5-a PICTURE QUIZ: Communist Party leader Leonid Brezhnev him to steal key Agnew sup- porters in the south and else- where. The return of John B. Con- nally to the White House con- firms his candidacy. In the judgment of most Republicans, he will attempt to follow next year the course followed by Nixon in 1966, by helping Re- publican candidates win in state and local races. His in- fluence in the south will be watched, and his per- formance in his home state of Texas will be crucial. The abil- ity to deliver his home state has symbolic importance, but also practical significance: if he is to make a real run in 1976, he needs the big Texas bloc of convention votes. To get them, he must take con- trol of the state party; to do that, he must elect a gover- nor; and to do that, he needs a horse. The pressure on George Bush, the Republican national chairman, is already enormous. Finally, a longshot: Sen. Howard Baker of Tennessee, like Harry S. Truman in 1944 and Estes Kefauver in may benefit from his role as a senate investigator. Attrac- tive, effective on television, the son-in-law of the late Ever- ett Dirksen, neither far right nor far left, he is well situat- ed for a rapid emergence in the next six months. Among the Democrats, the question is sinrole: does Water- gate help Teddy or hurt him? Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's re- tainers argue that whatever puestions of "personal" moral- ity may have been raised on Chaippaquidick Island in 1969 have been obscured by the larger questions of "pubHc" morality of Watergate. Too subtle, argue others; Teddy will never be able to masquer- ade as Mr. Clean, and that is what will be required post- Watergate. That dispute not- withstanding, Kennedy has giv- en his close friends the im- pression in recent days, as he never did in 1972, that he be- lieves that his moment to strike for the summit has come.
