Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta November 2, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Watergate No. 1 issue in general election WASHINGTON (CP) -Re- gional considerations aside, the issue in the mid-term U.S. general election is Watergate While it isn't the cut-and- dned issued it appeared earlier in the campaign, few of the Americans who enter the polling booths on matter what their be without at least a passing thought for the greatest political scandal in the history of the United States. President Ford himself has recognized the fact in his at- tempts to make the election it- self the over-riding upon the voters not to saddle him with a "legislative dictatorship" or a "veto-proof Congress." Republican candidates have argued that the current eco- nomic tail-spin is the main consideration and that the public must get behind Ford's programs for pulling the country out of the slump. Democrats argue that Ford's policies differ only slightly from those of Richard Nixon, his predecessor in the White House, and that those who were responsible for Watergate also bear the responsibility for the country's economic condition. BREEDS VOTER APATHY One of the unknown factors in this election is just how much voter apathy Watergate and inflation will breed. Out of 145 million persons of voting age in the U.S. this year, it is estimated that fewer than half will even bother to vote. At stake are all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, 34 in the 100-seat Senate and governorships in 35 states There also are elections for various state, county and other local offices throughout the country. The Republicans concede that the Democrats stand to YCAR YEAR AFTCR AFTCR AKAL'SNO DCALIF AROU NOT Some dealers (old. Some just fade away.

SEE LIBERAL SWING Republicans most likely to lose their seats are con- servatives who have sup- ported both Ford and Nixon on critical votes. Their probable democratic successors are ex- pected to be significantly more liberal than the men they stand to replace. The Democrats, who already hold a 58-to-42 edge in the Senate, stand to pick up from two to eight seats, with most observers predicting a net gain of at least four. White House sources who recently were predicting that the party would drop two or three senate seats, now are advising Ford that his party may lose as many as seven.

COIN SHORTAGE REAL MYSTERY OTTAWA (CP) A countrywide coin shortage is a mystery to the Royal Canadian Mint. Some department stores and supermarkets are even asking customers for ex- act change. "No one seems to know where the coins are a mint official said Friday. The mint is working at capacity after increasing its output 52 per cent over 1973. "We've minted 975 million coins to date this year and that's in addition to all the coins that were already in cir- culation." "Since 1968 we've made more coins than we made in the previous 110 he said. That was the year the mint began to use nickel rather than silver for its 10-and 25-cent coins. The change was made because a soaring demand for silver drove its price above the face value of the coins, making them worth more as metal than as currency. This led to an international bootleg trade in silver coins. Production at the Ottawa mint so far this year has been 155 million quarters, 164.5 million dimes, 74 million nickels and 576 million copper cents. Since the mint first started making the coins in 1858, it has produced and left in circulation worth of coins, recalling only war-time brass-based "blackout nickels" and removing mutilated coins returned by banks The United States seems to be experiencing a similar coin shortage and meetings have been held with U.S. officials to calculate projected coin needs, the mint spokesman said World food conference plans still big secret Clear Lake Mutual Telephone Co.
