Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta November 1173 THI LETHtRIDOE HERALD Was Archibald Cox Alaska now bracing for great oil rush Archibald Cox Spiro Agaew Error admission in short supply NEW YORK It is the fashion currently to speak of former Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox as incurably naive. In particular since he recently admitted before the American nation that he had violated a that he had leaked privileged information concerning White House pressure in the 1972 ITT investigation. Said he was inexcusable. I was the Cox admission strikes many as un- sophisticated. Once the first lesson of Washington was borrowed from the you would understand observe the con- duct of virtuous Now the lesson seems to be borrowed from Hermann m gave order to Prussian first and inquire and if you make mistakes I will protect In the idea of owning up has been lost in the capital and perhaps in much of the rest of the nation. Admission of much less is in precious short supply. Spiro Agnew was only the latest of high government officials exiting the executive offices in disgrace but admitting nothing. Said decision to resign rests on my firm belief that the public interest requires swift dis- position of the problems which are facing me. I am advised that a full legal defense of the probable charges could consume several years. I am concerned that intense media interest in the case would distract public attention from impor- tant national problems to the country's Never a word of apology. Not a hint of per- sonal error. Not a mention of the 40 pages of charges which a grand jury had put together ac- cusing the man of high fraud and felonious mis- conduct. a statement that smacks of a supreme patriotic sacrifice. Agnew left office like a not a crook. no he in- I enriched myself at the expense of the public It is perhaps quite obvious why such men refuse to bow. Tads are taught in as Ben- jamin Franklin The things which but forget it growing up. New York clinical psychologist Dr. Harold Kooden says men assign to themselves roles and images in life and strjye to keep them come what may. Agnew's like that of many political was one of steadfast morality the works. Any admission of even if someone is caught red destroys the image. It better to have a tattered image than none at all. Kooden it is probably true that the public appreciates men who cling to images. The public expects much of the famous and does as a enjoy having its expectations destroyed. If you vote for a man and he turns out to be a what does this say for your own Commentary by TOM TIEDE Newspaper Enterprise Association Thus the teaching of and perhaps of is that as Kooden who make one mistake and admit it are hounded much more than people who make 100 mistakes but keep them to A relatively recent example of Kooden's latter opinion is George former governor of Michigan. In 1967 Romney had a fair shot at the presidential nomination in a moment of he said he had about the Vietnam that he no longer believ- ed it was a correct fight. What a boob. Lack of public support forced him out of the nomination race and he's not been a serious politician since. now a private citizen in Romney agrees the brainwashing statement did him in. I'd do it again. I'm not sorry. It was the I simply told the truth. The trouble politics is you can't be right too soon and a religious is disturbed that telling truths in America can be so damaging. He says President for have been much better off if he had laid it all on the line about Watergate from the But that's not the way the game has been played and so George wiser if somewhat the worse for is to be out of the Washington mess. There something to be said for the fact that barefaced men like Romney and Archibald Cox shouldn't be in Washington in the first place. The capital is the preserve of the so the argument goes. Political leaders can't admit errors because usually it's not just their hides at a president who goofs in the nuclear age risks the entire citizenry. But Kooden doesn't buy the hard-nose theory. He says it has always been Richard Nixon's all it is is a way of putting people Kooden says Americans aren't children. That the population can survive both mistakes and fools. The electorate does not vote for gods but humans with dandruff and halitosis. If someone if attorneys general are then echo the opinion of Nathalia is glory in a great Archibald Cox is not naive. If the prin- ciples of public service are honesty and it is his detractors who are the simpletons. Fiorello when he was mayor of New used to don't often make but when I do it's a beaut. That's not a bad philosophy for politicians and people to follow today. No one is infallible. Even John the XXIII make mis- takes too. After I'm only the Pope By BERT TAJUUNT Alaska The Alaska oil rush is on but workers heading north to prospect for jobs may well end up panning for their for- tune on the unemployment line. which had its last large influx of fortune hunters in a turn-of-the-century gold is bracing for another immigration of job seekers for the trans-Alaska oil pipeline project. But this time it's different. Alaska already has a high unemployment and. able- bodied natives are on the scene ready to work. About will be employed on the pipeline at the height of construction in says public relations chief Robert Miller of Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. The firm will build the pipeline through contractors. 450 of those will re- main in Alaska on a perma- nent basis after the pipeline is Miller in 100 in Fair- 150 at the tankers' ter- minal in Valdez and 100 strung along the Miller said the spinoff for related services will add an additional jobs for a total work force of to jobs. NO LACK OF MANPOWER already has a near- 10-per-cent unemployment said employment centre manager Arthur Zillig. state could fill up to 000 of those jobs at the drop of a Alyeska is negotiating with the Alaska Federation of Na- tives to hire at least and perhaps Indians for the project. state could pro- vide all the workers Miller reported. State officials and Alyeska are worried. Health and social services officers say 300 new persons are arriving in the state looking for jobs and applying for welfare. Frederick com- missioner of the department of social said 220 persons have applied for food stamps in Anchorage in the last six all of them out- of-state arrivals seeking pipeline or pipeline-related jobs. One day recently a string of 70 applicants began arriving at his office at 2 a.m. in frigid temperatures in effort to be one of the 20 to 25 cases the office can process each day. Miller said his office in An- chorage is averaging 50 letters and 30 long-distance phone calls a day inquiring about pipeline our and Fairbanks offices are taking the same Adding to the problem is the plethora of fly-by-night job agencies that are advertising all over the United Canada and said assistant Attorney-General Stanley Howitt of the con- sumer protection section. The method of operation is disarmingly the huck- ster places an advertisement in classified sections of news- papers and magazines adver- tising pipeline and asks prospective employees to themselves one of these topflight by returning an application with a to registration distortion of facts is almost said these ads are He said mailed brochures multiply the number of jobs that actually will exist and promise the prospective work- ers not only fantastic wages but also food and housing allowances and even coldweather wearing apparel.

The issue for these nomads who roamed over Sweden long before the white man appeared is whether they have any remaining rights to land vital to the survival of their reindeer herds. In many ways the Lapps of Sweden relate to the Indians of Canada and to the Eskimos of Greenland.

Forty Lapp including 150 call- ed on the Lapp ombudsman Thomas to demand in court their collective rights to the three mountains. In a small district court the battle was fought and lost. The court recently ruled that the proprietary rights have passed to the state. But the Lapps plan to wage their cam- paign in every appeal right up to the supreme court. The struggle may continue for a decade. The government maintains that while proprietary rights to the land belongs to the the Lapps have many privileges which ensures con- tinuance of their way of life. The reindeer are allowed to graze over wide areas. In the areas where they are the Lapps have sole hunting and fishing rights. They can log timber for home use.
