Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, September E LETHBRIDGE HERALD-9 Watergate might explode again if linked with Wallace shooting By AL COLLETTI The Canadian Press Two U.S. presidents have tried to seal the coffin of Watergate and failed. Obviously from the American public's negative reaction to President Ford's pardoning of Richard Nixon, no one man can lay to rest the worst political scandal in the history of the United States. It has to run its course, and that may take years. And there is no certainty that the full story of Watergate and all its implications will ever be disclosed. Nixon himself tried to shut off the Watergate tap a half- Laborleader appointed OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau announced Friday that Joe Morris, president of the Canadian Labor Congress, has been appointed to the Economic Council of Canada for three years. Mr. Morris, 61, was elected CLC president this year after serving as an executive vice- president since 1962. A spokesman for the prime minister's office said that although appointment of the CLC president to the economic council is not automatic, Mr. Morris's predecessor was a member. The council, established by an act of Parliament in 1963, is an advisory body. dozen times and in the end had to quit the presidency or face certain impeachment. His successor last Sunday granted Nixon an all-inclusive pardon and said he (Ford) must try to write "The End" to the American tragedy of Watergate. But the tragedy didn't go away with the stroke of Ford's pen. When word leaked out that Ford was planning to grant pardons to all of the nearly 50 Watergaters, the hue and cry was so great that he had to back off from .any immediate thought of a general Watergate amnesty. One key figure who has a personal stake in not Jetting Watergate die is Gov. George Wallace of Alabama, busy lay- ing the groundwork for a presidential bid in 1973. He had hoped that in the whole mess of Watergate the story might surface detailing who he thinks was behind the attempt to kill him during the 1972 presidential election campaign. This hasn't yet. Cornelia Wallace, wife of the governor, says that neither she nor her husband believed the attempted assassination was the doing of one man, Arthur Bremer, now serving a life sentence. Martha Mitchell, estranged wife of former attorney- general John Mitchell, himself charged in the Watergate coverup, inter- viewed Mrs. Wallace in the September issue of McCall's magazine. In the article, Mrs. Mitchell said that she too believes more than one person was in- volved in the assassination attempt. The bullet shattered Wallace's spine and his hopes for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination. At the time, he had won more popular votes than any other candidate in the primaries to pick party candidates. He is paralysed from the waist down and in constant pain. He will never walk again. Mrs. Wallace makes several points to bolster her belief in a conspiracy. She said that neither she or her husband could believe Bremer's so-called diary. Bremer, whose reading ap- parently was limited to comic books and pornography, kept a of which were revealed after the spelled out his intention to kill Wallace. "The diary was Mrs. Wallace said. "To me, it was contrived, it was planned, it was his alibi." Mrs. Mitchell said the governor told her later that he had also made a study of the diaries of two other political assassins, the late Lee Harvey Oswald, labelled by the Warren Commission as the man who killed President Kennedy, and Sirhan Sirhan, convicted of killing the late president's brother, Robert, and was "surprised at their similarities." The Wallaces also heard the rumor that Charles Colson, a White House aide later jailed over the Watergate cover-up, had ordered Howard Hunt, a Watergate conspirator and former intelligence agent, to go immediately after the shooting to Bremer's apart- ment in .Milwaukee. "How did they know his ad- Mrs. Wallace asks. And she questions a visit to her husband by the FBI a full year after he was shot. "They said they wanted to brief George on the Bremer case. It was the week it was announc- ed that John Mitchell was go- ing before the Senate Watergate Committee. But when the FBI got here they didn't report any new developments. All they did was sit and assure my hus- band that this man (Bremer) was not involved in a con- spiracy." JS.
