Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETH0RIDQE HERALD Saturday, Oetebtr 1f, 1974 NASA preparing report Canada wants in on space ship launch By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) An eight-man team from NASA, back.from a tour of Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa government installations and aerospace companies, is preparing a con- fidential report on Canada's application to take part in the development of the first true space ship. LeRoy Day, deputy director of the space shut- tle program for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said Friday his team's findings are "confidential" and will be made directly to NASA administrator James Fletcher. "My team is digesting and putting together their Day said. "Evaluation will take another few weeks." Day would not speculate on the chances of Canada's application "being accepted, but said there was "considerable congressional and White House" interest. He also declined to discuss' the team's fin- dings, saying, "We collected data from various Canadian that couid be sen- sitive in itself." Canada, as part of stated government policy to foster "a Canadian industrial capability" for the design and construction of space systems, applied to no cost to the the remote manipulator arms for handling payloads for the shuttle vehicle. Should the project go through, it is expected to cost the Canadian government about mil- lion, but would lead to possible future purchases of the arms, termed for "shuttle-attached manipulator system." The shuttle, expected to fly some time in the 1980s, goes aloft like a conventional rocket, flies like a spacecraft, but lands like an airplane and is reusable. It will carry cargo to be unloaded in space by use of the SAMs. Wayne Miller, NASA official who was ex- ecutive secretary during the meetings in Canada, said, "We got the first hard offer from Canada last June." The team went north Sept. 30 and spent five days talking with industry and government offi- cials in the three cities. The Canadian companies involved are Spar Aerospace Ltd. of Toronto; CAE Electronics, Montreal; Dilworth, Secord, Meagher and Associates of Toronto, and RCA Ltd., Montreal. The U.S. experts also visited the David Florida Laboratories in Ottawa and the National Re- search Centre there. Miller said that in addition to any "follow-on" contracts from the U.S. which might arise from such a project, "I'm sure the Canadians feel there would be Commercial The Canadian treasury board authorized million last summer to fund studies of the pro- gram.

Nixon explained he meant limiting the investigation to the original Watergate burglars. A tape recording of that con- versation was played Friday at the Watergate cover-up trial. It was the first time the text of that conversation was made public.

PhOM 328-5447 playing at the trial is the March 21, 1973, conversation in which Nixon, Dean' and H. R. Haldeman discussed Watergate conspirator E. Howard Hunt's demands for money. During his fight to save his presidency, Nixon maintained that he did not learn of the in- volvement of White House and campaign aides in the Water- gate break-in until Dean told him on March 21. However, during the March' 17 conversation Nixon is heard saying to Dean: "It's your the vulnerables are basically, Mitchell, Colson, Haldeman, indirectly, possibly directly. He was referring to former attorney-general John Mitchell, former White House counsel Charles Colson, and Haldeman, Nixon's top aide. Mitchell and Haldeman are among the five defendants charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice in the cover- up case. A similar charge against Colson was dropped after he pleaded guilty in a related matter. The other three defendants INSTALLATION HUMIDIFIERS 0 17W- 2nd Phone 328-5973 are John Ehrlichman another former White House aide, for- mer assistant attorney- general Robert Mardian and Kenneth Parkinson, a former attorney for the Nixon re- election committee.

On the March 17 tape played for the jury of nine women and three men, Dean says he also ought to be listed among "the Nixon asked. Dean: "Well, because I've been all over this thing like a blanket." NiXon: "I know, I know, but you know all about it, but you didn't, you were in it after the deed was done." Dean: "That's correct, that I have no foreknowledge...." Nixon: "Here's the whole point, here's the whole point. My point is that your problem is you, you have no problem.

The minister was com- menting on reports that the United States is making diplomatic moves to en- courage the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to lower their prices. "My feeling is the best we can hope for is some plateau- ing of prices at their present the minister said in an interview. Average revenue to Arab oil producing countries now is about a barrel. However, with transport charges added, it costs about a barrel when it reaches the Canadian market. Mr. Macdonald has said he would favor lower prices since Canada is a major importer, using barrels of foreign crude a day in the eastern provinces. But he saw no immediate prospects of a general reduc- tion in prices. "I have to say this week's news leavejs me more pessimistic than he said. U.S. Secretary ot Mate Henry Kissinger sought sup- port for a price reduction dur- ing a visit to the Middle East earlier in the week. King Faisal of Saudi Arabia told him he will push for lower prices among Arab leaders, but two other and only that they will attempt to stave off further price increases. Saudi Arabia has tried un- successfully in the past to per- suade other OPEC countries to drop prices. One American official with Kissinger said OPEC countries had been expected to increase prices five per cent when they meet in Vienna next week. But he said he would be surprised if that happened in view of the statements from Arab leaders. King Faisal was reported to have sent a message to the Shah of Iran asking for his support in reducing oil prices. However, later in the week a newspaper in the Iranian capital of Tehran said the country {has proposed to OPEC a fixed oil price of a barrel, 10 cents more than the present average'price. The secret proposal is also said to outline a plan to keep pace with inflation by tying the price of oil to 20 or 30 other basic commodities. Top U.S. officials also sug- gested that >reducing demand for oil through conservation might result in lower prices. Federal Energy Adminis- trator John Sawhill said a de- mand reduction could result is a scenario where oil states needing revenue would increase production to keep their share of the market, thus breaking up the price cartel. Mr. Macdonald agreed that countries such as Iran and Venezuela which depend on oil revenue would find it difficult to reduce production. If the OPEC countries wanted to lower production to meet a drop in demand, it would have to be done by countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait who could afford to see revenue decline, Mr. Macdonald said. Paul Martin confirmed as high commissioner OTTAWA (CP) Appoint- ment of Senator Paul Martin, a veteran of 39 years in Parliament, as high com- missioner to Britain was con- firmed today by-Prime Minister Trudeau. Senator Martin, 71, will take over the post in December .from Jake Warren, a career civil servant, who" has been high commissioner in London since 1971 "In a news release, the prime minister said Mr. Martin's ap- pointment "underlines the im- portance that he attaches to the London post and to the special relationship that ex- ists between Canada and Britain." The announcement confirm- ed reports circulating about Mr. Martin's future since he was replaced in August as government leader in the Senate. Mr Martin, a Windsor, Ont, lawyer, served 23 years as a cabinet minister under prime ministers Mackenzie King, Louis St. Laurent, Lester Pearson- and Mr. Trudeau.
