Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October 18, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGIE Arms-supply race goes Michener in Alberta Governor-General Roland Michener is greeted near the start of a tour of central Alberta by three-year-old Nadme Anderson of Lacombe. The occasion was a reception at the Legion Hall in the town, 75 miles south of Edmonton. The governor-general and Mrs. Michener arrived by rail earlier nearby Red Deer. Watergate tapes suit thrown out WASHINGTON (AP) A federal judge dismissed Wednesday the Senate Watergate committee's suit against President Nixon rul- ing that the court has no jurisdiction in the matter. The committee had asked United States District Court Judge John Sirica to uphold the legality of its subpoena de- manding the tape recordings of five presidential conver- sations about the Watergate scandal. A committee spokesman said the decision would probably be appealed. Meanwhile, three cor- porations which admitted making illegal contributions to President Nixon's re- election campaign pleaded guilty to misdemeanor violations of federal law. In a brief order, Sirica said that the court lacked jurisdic- tion in the tapes suit, an argu- ment made by the White House in its opposition to the committee's civil action. "No jurisdictional statute known to the court, including the four which plaintiffs name, warrants an assump- tion of jurisdiction, and the court is therefore left with no alternative here but to dis- miss the Sirica said. NEEDS APPROVAL The judge pointed out that federal law requires the com- mittee to have congressional authorization to file such a suit and that it has failed to seek it. In an 18-page opinion Sirica rejected point by point the committee's arguments con- tending that the court has jurisdiction. Sirica's decision followed by less than a week the U.S. Court of Appeals ruling upholding his earlier order in the case involving the tapes subpoenaed by special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox. In that case Sirica ordered the president to give him the tapes to Hear in private so that he could determine if Nixon's claim that they must be kept secret was yaiid. The president is expected to carry his appeal in that case to the Supreme Court. He has until Friday to ask the supreme court to review the case. At the White House, deputy press secretary Gerald L. Warren said the White House attorneys were studying the Court of Appeals decision. The three companies charg- ed Wednesday with mis- demeanors over campaign contributions are American Airlines, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., and Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Co. Charges were also filed against the board chairmen of Goodyear and Minnesota Mining. HERE'S WHATTHE PACKAGE INCLUDES: Return rail journey with roomette and meals on the trnin.

Address Phone WASHINGTON (CP) The Soviet Union has reinforced its Mediterranean fleet to about 70 than ever the Middle East war rages on, a defence department spokesman said Wednesday. This follows the disclosure that the United States has at least two aircraft carriers and a helicopter carrier in the Mediterranean as part of the U.S. Sixth Fleet and is sending marines to the area. The spokesman, Jerry Friedheim, said the Soviet Mediterranean fleet normally consists of 50 to 60 vessels and the reinforcements include a cruiser and a missile destroyer. They have arrived in the last day or so, he added. U.S. officials also said there are indications the Soviet resupply effort to Syria and Egypt includes tanks and fighter planes. Officials said it is not yet clear how many planes or ar- mored vehicles were being de- livered and whether they go beyond shipments planned before the fighting began. The officials, speaking only the aircraft and tanks were spotted aboard Soviet ships either enroute to or already docked at Mideast oorts. DOING THE SAME The same officials, asking to remain anonymous, said the U.S. airlift to Israel is rapidly approaching the size of the Soviet resupply to Syria and Egypt, with transport planes, including C5 Galaxies, making about 20 flights a day into Israeli airports. Both countries are deliver- ing daily between 700 to 800 tons of a wide range of military equipment, the of- ficials said. The U.S. supplies include tanks and F4 Phantom jets. So far. the officials said, the Russians have delivered in eight days of their airlift about tons of equipment and supplies carried aboard approximately 350 flights by big AN12 and AN22 Soviet transport planes. U.S. defence department spokesmen said the Soviet fleet buildup may be intended to keep shipping lanes open and free from Israeli in- terference. The U.S. and the Soviet Union now have some of their biggest naval forces ever in the Mediterranean.
