Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The LetHbttdge Herald -276 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1974 15 Cents 64 PAGES divorce ikely for House 7 VASHINGTON (AP) That good marriage U.S. esident Ford proposed to Congress may be headed a quick divorce. The election returns point to in- npatibility as the likely grounds. Phe voters have confronted the Republican president th the most heavily Democratic Congress since ndon Johnson's landslide election a decade ago. while Ford said he is confident he can work with the new Congress to deal News analysis with inflation and the By Walter Mears economic slump, all the signs signal a heightened struggle over economic measures. Against the background of Tuesday's election out- Tie, it is likely to begin almost immediately, when current 93rd Congress returns for its lame duck ;sion beginning Nov. 18. ror one thing, any slim prospect that Congress uld act this year to give Ford the middle-and upper- ome tax surcharge he proposed as anti-inflation iasure appears to be gone now. And given the shape the new Congress that will convene in January, if rd ever gets the surtax through, it likely will be ered so as to apply only to high-income brackets. Leans to left Tie new Congress will be more aggressively liberal, >re likely to challenge Ford on foreign and defence mding, more attuned to domestic programs, louse Speaker Carl Albert of Oklahoma, an old of Ford's but a Democrat first, said his party i a mandate, not just a victory. Ubert said the Democrats now can move with more ifidence on such programs as national health in- tax reform and public service employment. rord said there was no argument that inflation was No. 1 issue. 'The mandate of the electorate places upon the next ngress a full measure of responsibility for resolving s he said. "I will work with them oleheartedly in this urgent task which is certainly fond partisanship." Jut other politicians put inflation squarely in the arena. Democratic Senator Henry Jackson of shington who is virtually certain to seek the White use in 1976, and who said the election outcome will >h up his timetable for an announcement, argued t the voters are fed up and want action now. 'We're all going to have to move sooner and faster 1 much more Jackson said. "They're I up with high prices, obscene profits." 'Ford better change' Vnother Democratic prospect, Senator Lloyd ntsen of Texas, said Ford had better change some of economic policies. "If he doesn't we will win the lite House in Bentsen said, f the economy was the overt issue, Watergate was undertow for Republicans in the Tuesday balloting, publican national chairman Mary Louise Smith said backlash of scandal led to Republican defeats.

Sadat said when F such negotiations de- on parallel talks being held concerning Israel's with- drawal from the west bank of the Jordan River. Sadat met reporters after a two-hour meeting with Kissin- ger. "As you Sadat said. "I have fullest confidence in Dr. Kissinger, and we support his continuing efforts to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Middle East." Watergate scandal toll heavy Democrats sweep U.S. election WASHINGTON and food aid while icy conditions exist. le added repeatedly ipient countries must augment their own food production and improve their ability to store and process food. "Where Canada can help to make these problems more manageable it will." and it would try to see that inter- national trade in such goods as fertilizer is maintained on a non-discriminatory basis. One million tons of Cana- dian grain yearly would supp- ly 10 per cent of the 10 million tons of food-grain aid flows proposed by the food conference organizers in the UN food and agriculture organization (FAO) MacEachen said 10 million tons "is a minimum target and we are facing a situation of extraordinary gravity The promised Canadian con- tribution would increase its food-grain aid from a 1973-74 total of about 550.000 tons. Canadian grain aid totalled about 1 25 million tons in 1970- 71. 1 04 million in 3971-72 and tons in 1972-73. MacEachen said about 20 per cent of the Canadian contribution would be funnell- ed through multilateral agen- cies, rather than straight to receiving countries The MacEachen speech was midly welcomed by Canadian observers at the food confer- ence New Democrat Andrew Brewin, member of Parlia- ment for Toronto Greenwood, said he liked the tone and emphasis of the speech, but thai it left several questions unanswered. MacEachen, for example, referred to a "matching re- sponse" from Canada for countries trying to increase their own food production. But he had not said whether that meant Ottawa would only spend money in countries with money to spend themselves Bernard Daly of the Cana- dian Catholic Conference also gave qualified support to the speech but withheld detailed comment until his group had studied it more closely MacEachen reiterated the government's support for a system of voluntary national contributions to a world food- grain stockpile saying it "would be a significant world He said Canada would take part "once suitable country coverage and implementation arrangements have been con- cluded "We must not blind ourselves, however, to the fact that much work remains lo be done, particularly among the countries chiefly concerned, to make meaningful food security a reality" Thai was taken to mean that long negotiations remain among grain producers and wilh buyers before achieving a stockpile system that would save people hit by periodic food shortages munities surrounding the centres. Tough grain has a moisture content of 14.5 to 17 per cent. Grain with a moisture content more than 17 per cent is con- sidered damp. The grain will be dried at Saskatoon, Edmonton and Moose Jaw before being shipped to export position. There is no tough or damp grain within 100 miles of Lethbridge. The first trucks started moving into Lethbridge Oct. 29 and they are expected to get into full swing this week as the last of the grain com is be- ing harvested in Southern Alberta. A unit grain train was mov- ed out of Lethbridge more than one week ago to make room for the grain to be truck- ed into the city.

Some House seats were still undecided and recounts were in the offing for the Ohio governorship and a couple of see-saw Senate places. But the Democrats had at least 62 seats in the 100- member Senate, 263 in the 435- member House and 35 of the 50 state more of each apparently waiting to fall into their grasp with the completion of vote counting. Among the Democratic win- ners were several who will have a chance to play a king- maker's role in future. They include Representative Hugh Carey, who won New York's governorship: Jerry Brown, youthful governor-elect in California; and Senate victors John Glenn of Ohio, a former astronaut, and Dale Bumpers or Arkansas, the state's current governor Many of Nixon's closest political allies and staunchest defenders in the House were victims of public disillusion over the Watergate scandals. Four Republican members of the House judiciary com- mittee who defended Nixon against impeachment charges were defeated, along with such Nixon loyalists as Dan Kuykendall of Tennessee and Earl Landgrebe of Indiana The most optimistic forecasts of Democratic gams were realized in the House, but the Democrats' edge was more modest in other races. Nevertheless, Democratic spokesmen saw the result as a summons to put forward eco- nomic policies that would re- place the allegedly timid pro- gram advanced by President Gerald Ford. ''This is a mandate9 "This is not just a victory, this is a said Speaker Carl Albert of Okla- homa, who is next in line of succession to the presidency until Congress confirms Nelson Rockefeller or someone else as vice- president. Other Democrats, with sud- denly rosy visions of the presi- dential race in 1976, rushed out public statements full of promise. "We will win the White House in 1976" if Ford doesn't change his economic programs, said Texas Senator Lloyd Bentsen, who wants the Democratic nomination himself. Senator Henry Jackson of Washington, another hopeful, thought he would make his decision by year's end. President Ford had three color television sets tuned in on the returns, then conceded: "I have accepted the verdict. Those sho lose often come back to win another day Democratic national chair- man Robert Strauss saw the vote as proof of the reconstruction of the old Democratic coalition which Nixon briefly dismantled in his 1972 landslide reelection. It is also an opportunity to tackle "bread and butter" issues. Strauss said Setback 'temporary' His Republican opposite number, Mary Louise Smith, blamed Watergate and the economy for the debacle and said the setback was "dish- eartening but also tem- porary." The winners in Tuesday's election will not take over un- til January. Until then, the current office-holders carry on. For members of Congress, that means a so-called "lame- duck" session starting later this month.
