22 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, Soptamber 5, 1973 Secret Watergate report being prepared WASHINGTON (AP) Sen- ate investigators are preparing a confidential report on political espionage and election cam- paign finances to be presented to the Watergate committee when the group returns next week from a month-long recess, The committee is expected to use the report in deciding how to proceed with its broad inves- tigation of the 1972 United States presidential campaign. Chief counsel Samuel Dash said he expects to present his staff's latest ,mdings at an ex- ecutive session with tlie com- mittee's senators next Tuesday. The senators will de- cide then when to resume their hearings and how to air the sec- ond and third phases of their three-pronged investigation. The first phase covered the break-in and oner-up involving the 1972 bugging of Democratic party headquarters at the Watergate building here. After the televised hearings recessed Aug. 7, two of Dash's top assistants, Terry Falk Len- zner and David Dorsen, led teams of investigators into the field to interview potential wit- nesses "Lenzner's Longhairs." as the New York lawyer's in- vestigating squad is affec- tionately known at the com- mittee, were reported to have concentrated en tracing the "dirty tricks" of Donald Segr- etti. Segretti has pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging he violated the Corrupt Prac- tices Act by distributing a pho- ney letter during the Florida campaign on Senator Edmund Muskie campaign stationery ac- cusing two Muskie opponents of j sexual misconduct. Lenzner returned to Washing- ton at the end of last week and reported to Dash on Tuesday. "His findings may determine how the committee handles the hearings from here on one source reported. Original plans called for the panel to wind up the Watergate phase of hearings, then proceed to an investigation of political espionage and sabotage and conclude by investigating the fi- nancing of the 1972 campaign. But President Nixon and a number of other political fig- ures have sought to push Water- gate out of the spotlight, and the committee is expected to consider a proposal next week to break down into two subcom- mittees, one on sabotage and the other on finances, to ex- pedite the proceedings. The committee also is ex- pected to decide next Tuesday when to hold the final hearings on Watergate Among those still scheduled to testify are Charles Colson, former special counsel U.S. television writer freed KOME (AP) American television correspondent Jack Begon was released from jail Tuesday, two weeks after being arrested on charges that his story about being kidnapped by the Mafia was a fake.

STAFF READY Committee aides say they ex- pect the hearings to resume Sept. 17, but Dash said the staff will be ready whenever the sen- ators choose to begin. Meanwhile, a federal appeals court Tuesday set arguments in the Nixon Watergate tape recordings case for Sept. 11, acting even before the White House formally appealed a lower-court order directing Nixoa to turn the tapes over to a judge. The case is expected to reach the United States Supreme Court no matter which side wins in the appellate division. Eaton's Autumn fabric Sale Hurry!

U.S. faces opposition over rigid Cuba policy WASHINGTON fAP) The United States will oppose a bid by Venezuela to allow each member nation of the Organ- ization of American States to establish the kind of relation- ship it desires Cuba. American officials said day. But Washington is faced with defections from its rigid anti- Cuban line and with a potential loss of prestige as a special Harvesting moves into home stretch CALGARY iCPl Hanest- ing operations steadily towards conclusion in southern Alberta and progress is about the same as last j-ear in the north, the Alberta Wheat Pool reported Tuesday. About 16 per cent of the province's barley was in the bin and 15 per cent of the rape- seed. Twenty-one per cent of the wheat was reported thresh- ed Rains delayed harvesting in all regions during the week, the Pool said. Districts around Bad Deer and Vilna, to the north- east, achieved the least pro- gress but were no farther be- hind than last year Wheat was yielding 22 bush- els per acre in the south and 18 in the southeast, most top grade gram Frost damage to crops was still being estimated but it ap- pears that yields will not be seriously affected, the Pool said. Warm, windy weather was needed for all districts north of Calgary for the next few weeks Forty-one per cent of the wheat had been reported swath- ed, 40 per cent of the barley cut and 44 per cent of the rape- seed swathed. The rye harvest uas almost complete and flax threshing was well started. Hamilton critical of grains plan By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Turning over the controls on the importation of grains from the Wheat Board to the department of industry, trade and commerce was de- scribed here Tuesday as a "sa- vere blow" to the western farmer, by Alvin Hamilton Moun- "For ycais t'e -western farmer has been Auspicious that of full control by the Wneat Board of all exports "and the general rule that when Cana- dian supplies are available grains will not be allowed into this country from outside." However Mr. Hamilton does not accept this. He says that ever since the Wheat Board was given the authority to control imports in 1935 there has been pressure from the bureaucracy within the federal government to relieve'the board of that au- Tues-! committee deliberates on the future of the OAS. "In the opinion of the United States, Cuba hasn't changed since the sanctions ivere first applied Joseph John Jova, the U S ambassador to the OAS, said in an interview. "That's why they must be continued. Acting originally on a com- plaint by Venezuela which had discos -ered a cache of Cuban arms off its shores, the OAS in 1964 concluded that Havana was training and supporting subver- sive elements in other countries and applied a mandatory em- bat o on tiade Mexico ignored the ban from the start It has been joined in opposition in the years since by Chile, Peru, Argentina, Trini- dad, Jamaica and Barbados. Costa Rica, Panama and Ecua- dor also may line up with Vene- zuela, producing just one short of a majority of the 23-member hemisphere group. CHALLENGED ON RULES However. Venezuela also faces a challenge to its legal ar- gument that the sanctions against Cuba can be lifted by majority vote of the OAS per- manent council. Application of the embaro under tire Venezue- lan formula would be left up to each member of the OAS com- munity We think the Venezuelan po- sition is wrong Jova said "Trying to change a resolu- tion adopted under the 1947 Rio treaty requires a two-thirds vote.

The US. position is that Cu- ban assistance to subversive groups in Latin America has declined but not to the point where the embargo should be lifted The U S. will try to head off Venezusla's move by maintain- ing the embargo can be re- moved only by a two-thirds vote of the OAS foreign ministers. sold out have to easterners That was one of I restored to the reasons the control om- the department of trade and importation of grains was placid in the hands of the fTOm fche and taKen Board- away Wheat he pointed out in an interview. Justice Minister Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Wheat Board announced August 3 the federal eminent new feed grains policy. Part of the new policy was described as follows: "A shift of import controls on wheat, oats and barley from the Wheat Board to the Export Im- port Permits Act, under the De- partment of Industry, Trade and Commerce." QUESTIONS MOVE Mr. Hamilton has questioned the justice minister on the move. He asked if there had been any consultation with farm, organizations about the "serious decline that he is proposing in the power of the Wheat Mr. Lang said there was "full consultation" with the farmers and farm organization. Mr. Hamilton is expected to follow up with the question as to what was the reaction of the farm or- ganizations. Mr. Lang has explained that the change in the location of the power over export and import does not indicate any general intention to change the manner PRESSURE APPLIED That pressure was applied on Mr. Hamilton when he was a member of the cabinet in John Diefenibaker's government as minister of agriculture. He said the farmers in the west have been aware for years that offi- cials in the federal government wanted to take the power to control the importation of grains away from the Wheat Board "It has been resisted up till the present." said Mr. Ham- ilton. He said the western farmers hked to have that authority in the hands of the Wheat Board because it was their board with their best interests at heart. There was always concern in the west that the trade and commerce department might come under pressure from east- ern industrialists and business- men. He said the control over the importation of grains was given to the Wheat Board "with reason" and now it has been taken away from the board. Mr Hamilton saw it as a "retrograde step" from the point of view of the western farmer.
