Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, October 2, 1973 Lewis criticizes Chile recognition SYDNEY. N.S. (CP) Ot- tawa's recognition of the new military regime in Chile was granted "in indecent New Democratic Party Leader David Lewis said. In an interview after a speech at a nominating convention in Glace Bay. N.S., Mr. Lewis said: "I believe that the Canadian government should not have been in a hurry to recognize the military junta in Chile. "I appreciate that recogni- tion doesn't mean approval of the government, but the military junta upset a presi- dent with whose policies they didn't entirely was elected democratically a nd was carrying on democratically." Dr. Salvador Allende, Chile's Marxist chief of State, was found dead in the presidential palace during a military revolt earlier this month. Chile now is under military rule. Mr. Lewis said the junta has "murdered hundreds of people, perhaps thousands. They have arrested thousands more, and that is Still going on. "I believe that recognition at this time was in indecent haste, and does not take into account that there has been a military coup which is totally anti-democratic. "We would have waited some time until the present situation normalized and changed." Mr. Lewis is on a four-day visit to the Maritimes. Election fund established SASKATOON (CP) The Saskatchewan Liberal youth organization has established an election-campaign fund which convention delegates dubbed "the Allan Blakeney retirement fund."

Hughes, the reclusive in- dustrialist, as a man who gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to politicians, including President Nixon, in a relentless drive for political influence. The main narrative comes from ..sworn testimony in depositions of Robert A. Maheu, a one-time Hughes employee, who has sued the Hughes interests for million in a libel action, scheduled to go to trial Oct. 23. Maheu alleges that his reputation was damaged when Hughes said in a telephone news conference that his former aide had "stole me blind." Maheu is the defen- dant in a countersuit that asks on the allegation that he mismanaged Hughes" property and misused his position. The Nixon contributions have been written about in fragments of unattributed ASPENITE THE ALL WOOD CHIPBOARD INDOOR OR OUTDOOR BUILDING PANEL Strong Weather Resistant IDEAL FOR: Basement Rooms Garages Farm Buildings Fences Per sheet Per Sheet 3 4 .37 .29 LIMITED QUANTITY ADVANCE LUMBER CO.

Not until Maheu's account has there been a description given by any participants to the transaction. A tape recording of what is said to be a telephone call between Hughes and Maheu in early 1970 is in the huge file of evidence. Tn it, the voice iden- tified as that of Hughes tells the person identified as Maheu, in regard to a possible move to the Bahamas from Las Vebas. Nev.: "If I were to make this move. I would expect you to wrap up that government down there to a point where it will be well, a captive enti- ty in every way." About nine months after the conversation, after he had decided to dismiss Maheu, Hughes moved secretly to the Bahamas, where he lived until March, 1972. Then he fled in the night in a hastily chartered yacht to escape deportation. Most of Maheu's description of the Hughes political contributions Came in a deposition taken on July 4, the 12th of 14 depositions taken from him. Such depositions consist of testimony elicited under oath outside the presence of the judge to allow the opposing parties to dis- cover evidence that will be presented and thereby narrow the issues and controversy. It was in the July 4 deposi- tion that Maheu gave the most complete description record- ed to date of the widely reported delivery of from Hughes to C. G. Rebozo, the friend of President Nixon.

No evidence was given that anyone saw Nixon during either delivery. By BOB DOUGLAS WINDSOR, Ont. (CP) The federal land assembly program will do little to solve the housing crisis unless municipalities decide what their housing needs are, says Paul Melin, president of the Community Planning As- sociation of Canada Mr. Melin said in an inter- view here that land acquisi- tion should be one of the final steps in attacking the high Race bettor robbed at track TORONTO (CP) What started but as a good day at the track for 95-year-old George Prout Saturday, didn't wind up that way. The spry former professional financial adviser and a member of the Manitoba legislature from 1914 to 1922 had in win- nings after the second race at Woodbine racetrack. But a thief snatched the win- nings as he left the window and outran pursuing security guards and other fans at the track. "I wish some of the horses I have bet on could run as fast as that guy Mr. Prout said later. He said he didn't see the man who robbed him. "I felt the money go and when I look- ed up all I could see was his heels flying." Gary Joseph Tucker, 26. of Toronto was later charged with theft over Mr. Prout said he is confi- dent his keenness at the track will soon replenish the stolen money, with interest. On the days when the former Liberal legislature member for Wildonan and St. Andrews in Manitoba doesn't venture to the track, he visits his many senior citizen friends, figuring out their financial problems, helping them apply for pensions or filling out their income tax forms. cost of housing. Before that, the various levels of govern- ment should pinpoint the real housing needs locally. The CPAC annual meeting begins today. The federal government recently set aside million annually for new land assembly and new com- munities programs. The programs are designed to reduce the cost of land by allowing large-scale public ac- quisition of property. Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford has said the new provisions have only been lightly used by provincial and municipal governments. Mr. Melin said municipalities tend to make short-term housing plans which fail to reduce housing prices. IS UP TO CITIES "I think the initial responsi- bility lies with the cities to identify a clear-cut housing he said. They have to decide whether the land they intend to buy is to be used for single- or multiple-family housing or subsidized housing. They have to outline how they were going to service the land, he said. "Unless the authority responsible makes these kind of decisions, injecting federal funds into land acquisition is not going to produce much housing." Mr. Melin said. He noted that a Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. survey of housing needs across Canada has shown that many municipalities have fail- ed to develop clear-cut hous- ing plans.
