(AP) James Earl Ray killed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to draw attention to himself, believing the assassination would be "widely approved" in the United States, says author William Bradford Huie. who had written about a possible conspiracy in the killing, said in a sworn state- ment submitted Thursday to U S District Court he concluded after almost six months of investigation that Ray acted alone. Earlier Thursday. Arthur Hanes of Birmingham Ala.. Ray's former lawyer, said he had believed the shooting was a "political killing." perhaps carried out by black militant organizations He testified that Rav denied numerous times that he shot the civil rights leader. Huie said his first indication that no on else was involved was when he found that Ray had no money and pulled a holdup to finance his inter- national flight after the April 4, 1968, shooting. Huie's testimony was in- troduced as the state neared the end of its case opposing Ray's attempt to withdraw his March 10. 1969. guilty plea so he can stand trial for the murder Incumbent Republicans face forced retirement WASHINGTON (CP) As many as one out of every five Republican members of the House of Representatives face an enforced retirement in the Democratic sweep expected in Tuesday's congressional elections in the United States. -labor meeting seen as 'social gathering9 OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau talked Thursday with labor leaders but there was differing ac- counts later on what went on at the meeting. Government spokesmen said it was part of a series of meetings to talk about infla- tion and economic policies. "As far as we're concerned it was just a social Joe Morris, presi- dent of the Canadian Labor Congress said after the CLC executive council attended a 2V2-hour luncheon meeting at 24 Sussex Drive. Meanwhile, there were loud opposition complaints in the Commons over government refusal to issue an immediate report to parliament on the prime minister's meeting Wednesday with the 10 premiers. One of the prime minister's press officers said after the session with the CLC ex- ecutive that this was one of a series of meetings promised Nixon's illness complicates trial WASHINGTON (AP) Lawyers in the Watergate cover-up trial are watching medical reports on Richard Nixon because the former president's health may decide whether he will appear as a witness. With Jeb Stuart Magruder scheduled to take the stand to- day for his third day of cross- examination, lawyers familiar with the case say there already have been serius discussions about mov- ing the trial to California for Nixon's testimony if he is too ill to travel to Washington. Another possibility is a direct television link from California to U.S. District Judge John Sirica's courtroom in Washington. Nixon would testify either from a hospital bed or his San Clemente, Calif., estate. Lawyers at the trial have emphasized that Sirica has given no indication how he might get Nixon's testimony before the jury if, by the time he is called, the former president's health has not im- proved significantly. Nixon, operated on Tuesday night for phlebitis, remained in critical condition Thursday from com- plications. Doctors said he was improving. Nixon has been subpoenaed by defendant John Ehrlichman, whose lawyers say Nixon's account is vital if their client is to receive a fair trial. Sirica already has indicated he will appoint a team of three doctors to examine Nixon. If they recommended that Nixon not be required to testify, de- fence sources i-Jicate Ehrlichman is likely to renew his requests for a separate trial. Another complication still unknown to the jury is the im- pact of the illness of David Bress, the lawyer for defen- dant Robert Mardian. Bress was reported to have been ex- amined at a hospital Thursday and one defence lawyer said he "has a serious problem." Finance ministers likely to discuss health care If confirmed by the voting. the result might mean the sort of Democratic-dominated Congress which approved in- novative and sometimes cost- ly programs after the Democratic landslide that returned Lyndon Johnson to the presidency in 1964 By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The spiralling cost of the multi billion dollar health care federal program shared with the provinces, and its inflationary impact, will be a subject to be discussed by the federal and provincial ministers of finance when they meet here Dec. 9 and 10. Finance Minister John Turner agreed with opposition suggestions Thursday that the inflationary rate of health care costs were matter of grave concern to all governments in this country. He said it was not discussed at the mini-summit meeting between Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and the ten premiers Wednesday. He indicated it will be on the agenda of the finance ministers' annual conference in December. He was responding to questions by Heward Grafftey Brome The member said there was a 15 per cent annual increase in the soaring costs of the federal provincial joint health care programs. Mr. Turner recalled that the federal government had tried in the past to devise with the provinces some formula to put "some cap on the escalation of the health costs." Mr. Grafftey said the federal government imposed on the provinces the medicare program in operation today. in the throne speech a month ago. The speech said there would be consultations with labor and several other groups. Privy Council President Mitchell Sharp, leading government spokesman in the House while the prime minister was at the luncheon meeting said Mr. Trudeau was continuing "the very useful discussions that began yesterday" at the meeting with premiers. Mr. Morris said Mr. Trudeau told them he wanted to meet new members of the CLC executive. "What they say in the House and what they say to you per- sonally, that's their he said in an interview with The Canadian Press. "We Were given no advance indicated that it was anything other than that (a social Mr. Morris said. The meeting Wednesday with the provincial premiers was requested by them at the conclusion of a premiers' conference in September. Premiers told reporters after the five-hour session that there was general agree- ment that anti-inflationary measures should not slow economic growth. Finance Minister John Turner attended the meeting, and in the Commons Thursday Mr. Sharp told the opposition that the finance minister would be happy to answer any questions. Opposition leader Robert Stanfield then asked Mr. Turner for a progress report and was told that Prime Minister Trudeau would provide details. Mr. Turner was questioned repeatedily by opposition members but avoided giving details, saying at one point that he did not know all of the details because he was not in- vited to sit in until after lunch. Allan Lawrence (PC Northumberland Durham) was among the most vigorous protesters. "We have a right to know what went on he shouted "Would somebody mind telling us." Mr. Sharp's answer was to describe the conference as "one of the most successful conferences ever convened." 4Resource tax dispute hurting other provinces' OTTAWA (CP) Ontario Energy Minister Darcy M c e o u g h rapped the knuckles of the federal government and two western provinces Thursday, saying a dispute over resource taxes could hurt other provinces. Consumers in other parts of the country had a right to a se- cure supply of petroleum, a supply that could be endan- gered if government policies discouraged industry from ex- ploration. Mr. McKeough said. "A quick killing by produc- ing provinces or the federal tax collectors will not serve the national he told a panel discussion at the Cana- dian Chemical Producers Association semi-annual meeting. The chemists heard both sides of the dispute during their meeting, with an address from Energy Minister Donald Macdonald during a morning session and an afternoon panel discussion involving four provincial representatives. The split between Ottawa and the governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan opened earlier in the year when the federal government said higher provincial oil royalties were an attempt to force the federal government out of resource taxation. The federal government countered with a proposal in last May's budget to disallow royalty payments to provinces as a deduction from federal corporate income tax.
