Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHMIPQe HERALD Tuttday, October 15, Minister impressed with Indian claims Dies at 73 Ed Sullivan, whose variety show was a Sun- day institution on North American television for 23 years, died Sunday in New York of cancer at the age of 73. Sullivan, also a Broadway gossip colum- nist for the New York Daily News, began his new- spaper career as a sportswriter. He began his variety show in 1948. When it went off the air in 1971, one television critic lamented: "It's like cancelling Sunday." The biggest names in show business appeared on the show for the most modest of fees because of its high popularity, scoring im- pressive TV first along the way. Both Elvis Presley and the Beatles made their television debuts on his show. Sullivan was a leader of TV cultural ex- changes, frequently devoting shows to enter- tainment from behind the Iron Curtain at the height of the Cold War. Tories move to organize in Quebec SHERBROOKE, Que. (CP) About 50 Progressive Con- servative party members from the Eastern Townships voted during the weekend in favor of forming a provincial party. Reward Grafftey, member of Parliament for Brome-Mis- sisquoi who attended the meeting Sunday, said in an interview that such a step would strengthen the federal party. BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES COUCOIMAU. EDMONTON (CP) A weekend tour of 10 Indian reserves in the three Prairie provinces provided few sur- prises but opened the door for a new role for the department of Indian affairs and northern development, Judd Buchanan, the department's new minister, says. Mr. Buchanan told a news conference at the tour's end that he was presented with much the same set of problems everywhere he went: housing, education, economic development and land claims, all expressed in "a vigorous and effective fashion" at the band level. The bands can find help for housing and economic development in other federal departments such as urban af- fairs and regional economic expansion, Mr. Buchanan said. Bands must begin to look further afield for help than just Indian affairs, he said. With the proliferation of programs available, it's possi- ble that Indian affairs will have to assume more of a co- ordinating role to make In- dians at the band level more aware of what is available from other departments, he said. The Paul Band, located on a reserve 35 mites west of Ed- monton, presented the minister with a brief outlining the need for better housing, all weather roads, on-reserve education and higher grants in the face of departmental budget reductions. "In the old days wood fires kept our families in good health. Today we cannot live in the old ways. Good health requires homes with steady temperatures, plumbing-and sewage facilities, adequate in- sulation and proper the band said in its brief. The answer to such problems as alcoholism lies in education and economic development, the minister said. Mr. Buchanan said Indians are determined to become full participants in the economic growth of their provinces, and- he singled out Alberta, saying while the oil-rich province has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada, unemploy- ment remains high on its In- dian reserves. Leadership, as a prime result of education, is essen- tial to improving the lot of the Indian, he said, noting he toured two reserves, side by side, and saw one actively im- proving itself while the other wanted the federal govern- ment to solve its problems. The federal government, he said, is committed to the land claim of the Big Horn Stoneys and is disap- pointed at Alberta's decision not to turn over the land but to take the case to the appeal division of the Alberta Supreme Court to see if the province is required to transfer the land to the In- dians. The federal-government is satisfied the claim, based on what the Indians say was a lack of representation at a treaty signing in 1877, is valid and that the province is obligated by a 1930 statute to turn over the land to meet the treaty obligation, he said. 15 killed on Prairies CANADIAN PRESS Five pedestrians who died in separate traffic accidents were among at least 15 per- sons to die in accidents on the Prairies during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

MINISTER LISTENS TO INDIAN GRIEVANCES NEAR NORTH BATTLEFORD Nixon 'covered up to save his neck' WASHINGTON (AP) John Ehrlichman's lawyer ac- cused former president Richard Nixon today of deliberately withholding in- formation about the Wa- tergate political espionage scandal "to save his own neck." William Prates said in his opening statement to the jury trying Ehriichman and four other men for conspiracy in the Watergate cover-up that: "President Nixon, who knew the full story, withheld it from John Ehriichman and prevented Ehriichman from making a full disclosure of the facts that Ehriichman recommended at that time over and over again." Prates thus laid out Ehrlich- man's defence: that "Richard Nixon deceived, misled, lied and used John Ehriichman." Ford, Congress bracing for first confrontation WASHINGTON (AP) Congress is heading into its first foreign policy showdown with President Ford which most leaders expect to lose in in the fight over a cutoff of United States military aid to Turkey. Opponents of the Turkish aid said Monday that spot checks indicated they might be able to muster a two-thirds House of Representatives vote today to override Ford's veto of the aid cutoff. But the opponents agreed with predictions of leaders, in- cluding Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott, that the Senate will sustain Ford's veto whether the House overrides or not. A presidential veto can be overturned only by a two- thirds vote of both House and Senate. Congress has postponed its campaign recess for a week to act because the Turkey aid cutoff is in an emergency stop-gap funding resolution for agencies whose legal spending authority expired Sept. 30. Denouncing "reckless Ford said in his veto message Monday that Congress' resolution to cut off aid to Turkey is "entirely destructive" to U.S. efforts to bring about Cyprus peace negotiations. The president also said the aid cutoff might imperil U.S. relations with Turkey "and weaken us in the crucial east- ern Mediterranean." "It directly jeopardizes the NATO he added. Both the House and Senate originally voted four to one to cut off the U.S. aid, after Tur- key's invasion of Cyprus, to force negotiations on Turkey's withdrawal from the island. But Ford contended that rather than encourage -negotiations, the Turkey aid cutoff "could mean the indefinite postponement of meaningful negotiations." Wilson widens efforts Lawyers for the two other de- to battle economic woes fendants'RobertMardianand He said that at the same time that Nixon was calling Ehriichman one of the finest public servants he had ever known "he was deliberately withholding information covering up to save his own neck." As Frates spoke, Ehriichman, who had been Nixon's No. 2 aide until he resigned four months into Nix- on's second presidential term, sat at the counsel table star- ing fixedly at the jury. His lawyer said it was not easy for Ehriichman to make such charges against the man he served so long. Frates asked the jury of nine women and three men to treat each defendant separately in making their decision at the end of a trial he expected to last three or four months. He referred to the White House tapes that Nixon fought so hard to retain in the White House The tapes, obtained after extended court fights and a United'States Supreme Court decision, will be played for the jury during the trial. "The tapes might have done some people Frates said, "but they are the greatest thing that ever happened to John Ehriichman." Frates made the first open- ing statement for the defence. LONDON (AP) Prime Minister Harold Wilson meets separately today with representatives of British labor and business in an effort to win support for his war on Britain's economic crisis.

Wilson is expected to urge labor unions to abide by the "social a compact his previous government reached with TUC. It calls for moderation in wage demands by labor in exchange for government efforts to redistribute wealth and control prices.

(AP) Richard Nixon continues to respond well to treatment for phlebitis and is following doc- tor's orders to restrict his physical activity, his physi- cian said Monday.
