Compromise WASHINGTON (AP) Congress is in recess until Nov. 18 after breaking a stalemate with President Ford over cutting off United States military aid to Turkey. A compromise on a twice- vetoed money bill suspends aid to Turkey Dec. 10, or sooner if Turkey increases its 40.000-man occupation force in Cyprus or sends it any more U.S. "implements of war." The compromise was work- ed out after the House of Representatives failed Thurs- day for the second time in a week to override Ford's veto of a normally routine funding resolution. The Turkey military aid ban was attached to the resolution.

OTTAWA (CP) The government likely will increase spending on its rental housing program next year to .ease current shortages and keep rents from skyrocket- ting. Urban Affairs Minister Barnett Danson said sday. Mr. Danson said in an inter- view that the recently an- nounced infusion of million into the limited divided program for rental units was only for the last threee months of the year. Spending on rental housing for the entire year next year would probably be much higher. Exact budget figures had not yet been decided. Earlier, he told the Com- mons Welfare Committee that reaction from builders to the government's move to pump another million into the limited dividend program was good. William Teron, president of the. Central Mortgage and Housing Corp.. said some proposals that are not approv- ed for this year's program may be permitted under next year's budget. The million was assembled from other programs in this year's hous- ing budget. The million limited dividend budget for 1974 was largely used up when Mr. Danson announced the ad- ditional funds in September. Under the program, builders and developers receive mortgages at an eight per cent rate. Rents are fixed for 15 years in negotiations with CMHC. The additional aid will be provided for to 2.500 un- its in 11 cities where the rental housing situation is par- ticularly tight. Mr. Danson said rental housing is particularly impor- tant because if more housing is not provided rents will climb sharply. WASHINGTON (AP) Richard Nixon, already a witness at the Watergate cover-up trial through his taped conversations, may be well enough soon to testify in person, his lawyer says. Meanwhile, the electronic testimony continued today with a recording whose contents have never-been dis- closed. Nixon's lawyer, Herbert Miller, told .U.S. District Judge John Sirica Thursday that Nixon may be able to come before the judge in three weeks and "no longer raise the health issue." Miller said that he will have Canadians 4ready' for news magazine OTTAWA (CP) Canadians are ready to sup- port a national news magazine of their own provided it dis- plays "a certain amount of pizazz" in covering national events. State Secretary Hugh Faulkner said Thursday. Such a magazine stands a good chance of prospering if it receives much of advertising revenues now going, with the help of special tax provisions, to the Canadian editions of Time magazine and Reader's Digest. Mr. Faulkner told the Commons Broadcasting Com- mittee. He also said the government will not provide further special financing to revive Saturday Night which suspended publication Oct. 7. Mr. Faulkner made it clear to committee members that For Your Musical Listening Entertainment THE EL RANCHO presents IN THE OUTRIDM TAVIRN Rhythm Masters IN THE AZTEC LOUNQI The Exciting Musical Sounds and StylingsofTEDDORE' IN THE DINING ROOM HARRY BAILEY AT THE KEYBOARD the government is leaning towards revocation of the special provisions which allow advertisers in Time and Reader's Digest to claim full tax exemptions for their advertising costs. He said the government is examining the tax exemption in the context of the impact its removal will have on any new all Canadian news magazine. There is no evidence to show that the estimated million annually that goes to Time and Reader's Digest in adver- tising revenues would automatically shift to existing Canadian periodicals j if the tax exemption is withdrawn, he said. But if a publication display- ing real skill in its coverage of Canadian affairs comes along "I'd have to believe that a substantial amount of the advertising money would find its way into this type of a news magazine." Mr. Faulkner said two or three Canadian publishing sources already have in- dicated an interest in launching a magazine to nil the gap left by the demise of Time's Canadian edition. Time publishers have said the Canadian edition will be scrapped if the tax exemption is withdrawn. The Canadian monthly magazine Maclean's may be expanded into a weekly news magazine if Time goes, magazine representatives have said. Mr. Faulkner told the com- mittee that aside from the financial troubles of Saturday Night, the Canadian magazine industry is generally strong and healthy. a prognosis on Nixon's health in that time and that "I'm sure ikwill be favorable." In San Clemente, Calif., however, Nixon's spokesman, former White House press secretary Ronald Ziegler, said the former chief executive is "not very and that his left leg still is swollen with phlebitis. Ziegler also said that Nix- on's spirits are sagging as he waits to hear whether he will be called to testify at the trial of his former aides. Nixon was subpoenaed by John Ehrlichman. his former domestic counsellor and a de- fendant at the criminal con- spiracy trial along with H.R. Haldeman. John Mitchell, Kenneth Parkinson and Robert Mardian. With former presidential counsel John Dean on the wit- ness stand for the third day, prosecutors planned to play a conversation of March 17, 1973. when Dean apparently held his first substantive Watergate discussions with Nixon. In its transcripts of subpoe- naed tapes last April, the Nix- on White House released only a small portion of the 35- minute conversation dealing solely with the activities of political prankster Donald Segretti and the break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist. Rocky's wife recovering satisfactorily NEW YORK (AP) Vice- president-designate Nelson Rockefeller's wife, Happy, is given a 90-percent chance of recovery from the removal of a cancerous breast in an oper- ation similar to that perform- ed three weeks ago on First Lady Betty Ford. After Mrs- Rockefeller's operation Thursday at Memorial Sloan KeUering Cancer Centre, her surgeon. Dr. Jerome Urban, said "she recuperated fantastically rapidly." Committee split over Ford pardon-for-Nixon testimony WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford's testimony on his pardon for former presi- dent Richard Nixon has drawn praise from congressmen for candor, but disagreement on whether he laid the pardon controversy to rest. Ford assured a House of Representatives judiciary subcommittee and a television audience Thursday "there was no deal, period" for the pardon and said he is convinc- ed he did not grant it too hastily. Subcommittee members split afterwards on whether Ford's testimony settled the matter, and chairman William Hungate (Dem.Mo.) .said the inquiry on the pardon may continue after Congress returns Nov. 18 from its election-campaign recess. Subcommittee Democrats called for more witnesses in- volved in the pardon con- sultations, including former White House chief of staff Alexander Haig. Ford counsel Phillip Buchen and possibly outgoing special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski. Most Republicans agreed with Ford the subcommittee should end the inquiry so the U.S. can "shift our attention from the pursuit of a fallen president to the persuit of the urgent needs of a rising nation." "This certainly should be the end of it." said Represen- tative Robert McGlory (Rep.lll. "It's lime to lay off the president." But Representative Bella Abzug (Dem.N.Y.i. author of one of the formal resolutions of inquiry that Ford appeared to answer, said: "This is just a "We have to probe further to make certain the pardon was pot part of a deal for the resignation or for Ford's becoming Representative k Elizabeth Holtzman (Dem.N.Y.) said Ford's testimony "raised more questions than it answered." It was under Miss Holtzman's questioning, on how Ford could answer the "suspicions raised" in the public mind on whether the pardon was part of a deal, that Ford interrupted to make one of his major points. "I want to assure you... and the members of Congress and the American people that there was no deal, period, un- der no circumstances." he said. Ford said the first mention ever made to him of a pardon for Nixon came from Haig during a meeting Aug. days before NTxon which he said Haig informed him of coming "devastating, even catastrophic" disclosures that might remove Nixon from of- fice. A Ford pardon for Nixon was one of six alternatives Haig listed. Ford testified. He said Haig did not advocate any of the options. The president said other op- tions included Nixon giving himself a pardon in advance. BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.
