Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Housing problem rhetoric flayed By BOB DOUGLAS MpNTREAL A Manitoba housing official says he wants politicians to the and deal quickly with mounting housing problems like construction materials shortages. Kevin who said he was expressing his said in an interview at a world housing conference here Tuesday federal action like a prices board with teeth is needed to handle rising housing costs. is fast corning to the point where it is going to be a major issue and a critical Mr. who is construc- tion co-ordinator for the Mani- toba Housing and Renewal said he believes some materials shortages are arti- ficially created by manufac-' hirers. He was also critical of Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford who he said recently promised several thousand more homes for native people in Manitoba without any follow-up action. Bill a Sas- katoon suggested the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. increase supervision of housing built with federal aid. Courses for poor people buying homes should also be created so low-income persons know their rights. Mr. Wardell and Mr. Nolan are attending the week long international symposium on lowcost housing problems. The conference is organized by the International Association for Housing science and several Canadian and American universities. Mr. Nolan said a prices board should be set up to investigate prices and hold them down if increases are unjustified. The United States is the big- gest producer of he said. Manufacturers are saying there is a steel shortage despite an end to the Vietnam War and declines in American car sales. Housing is a basic a even middle-income people can't buy homes he said. Construction costs for a suite in a home for the elderly had climbed to in April from last September. COMPLAINTS RECEIVED Mr. Wardell said that his nonprofit law which helps low-income persons with legal has received complaints about unscrupulous contractors taking advantage of poor people buying homes under the federal assisted home ownership program. There had also been protests about poor construction of federally- financed housing. the federal housing should improve super- vision of these he said. Consumer education courses should also be launched to help the poor find out their legal rights. Farhat a sociologist at the Ontario In- stitute for Studies in Education at said low-income housing projects are designed by middle-class people to help the poor learn middle-class values. He suggested distributing low-income units in middle- class apartment buildings to help deal with this ghetto outlook. And more full-time workers should be hired to with children of the poor so that the next generation had the desire to improve their position. High court delay asked WASHINGTON President Nixon's Watergate lawyer says the Supreme Court should not intervene in the legal battle over White House tapes. James St. Clair said Tuesday that the dispute over tapes subpoenaed by special prosecutor Leon Jaworski should be decided by the United States Court of Appeals before any in- volvement of the Supreme Court. Jaworski has asked the high court to step into the case. Jaworski said there is evidence that Nixon probably discussed with -aides use of the Internal Revenue Service to audit and harass po- litical and he asked a Federal court to turn over to iiim a White House tape which tie believes contains that con- versation. A U.S. District Court had ruled that Nixon must surren- Jer the and St. Clair isked the appeals court last Friday to overturn the ruling. On the same Jaworski isked the Supreme Court to issume which frould mean bypassing the ippeals court. EVIDENCE CITED In papers filed with U.S. District Jaworski said here is evidence that the Write House presented lists of _ ndividuals to the Internal' Revenue Service for and that White House unlawfully attempted to have the IRS former Democratic party chairman Lawrence O'Brien. The House of Representatives judiciary was preparing to subpoena more despite Nixon's refusal to provide more Watergate evidence. The committee resumed its closed sessions with chairman Peter Rodino hoping to wind up the presentation of evidence relating to Watergate. If another session is it will follow Thursday's business meeting. In other Watergate develop- former Washington representative of a Pennsylvania dairy co-oper- pleaded guilty to aiding His boss in making an illegal corporate contribution to Nixon's 1972 re-election campaign. the lawyer who headed the prosecution of former attorney-general Richard resigned from the Watergate special prose- cutor's office. A source in the office said Connolly felt Kleindienst should have been charged with rather than being allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor. Labor certification ruling far-reaching OTTAWA The Can- ida Labor Relations in i recent far-reaching ndustrial relations las affirmed that union bids should be on the proportion of iigned-up members at the late of an application rather ban on the date of board learings. The decision is outlined in a udgment on a certification id by a local of the nternational Brotherhood of feamsters whose members vork for Swan River-The Pas rransfer Ltd. of Winnipeg. Lfter the there was a apid turnover in staff mployed by the firm. The judgment says labor elations chaos would result if he board based its decision on he proportion of union membership on the date of oard hearings. In the case referred five months elapsed between the union's application and the hearings. In its submission to the the company said 23 of the 44 members of the bargaining unit left their jobs within the five months and were replaced by 23 new employees. The union made no attempt to sign up the new workers. At the time of the the union had signed up a majority of the employees in the unit. But the company maintained that in view of the changes during the five the board should order a vote.
