Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 25, 1974 Oddities in the news PEORIA. 111. (AP) An off-duty policeman has been commended and suspended after breaking up a robbery attempt. Sgt. Elmer Mclntosh, 49, foiled a robbery at a dairy- foods store when he hit one of two gunmen over the head with a metal milk bottle car- rier containing four empty bottles. Police arrested one of the holdup men and were seeking the second. Mclntosh, the father of five children, was suspended for not being properly armed in the iine of duty. "Although he violated the rules by not carrying a weapon and put himself in a dangerous position he still conducted himself beyond call of duty." Acting Pdlice Chief Salvatore Pisano said Tuesday. Mclntosh said he forgot to transfer a revolver between the glove compartments of his two cars and did not have a gun when he walked in on the holdup last Friday. PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) His arms and legs are with- ered and almost useless, but Ronnie Vasquez is seeking a college degree. Vasquez, 26. suffers from calcinosis universalis, a dis- ease that results from the ab- normal deposition of calcium salts in various parts of the body. He contracted the disease at the age of five. Doctors told him when he entered a nursing home nine years ago that he only had six months to live. But Vasquez eluded death and earned high school and junior college degrees. This fall, he entered Ari- zona State University in sub- urban Tempe, seeking a de- gree in business law. Last Friday, he dropped out be- cause of a university ruling that he needs a full-time at- tendant, primarily to push his wheelchair. He had been bumming pushes up to then. "I hope to get back next se- Vasquez said. PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa (AP) Hundreds of sheep with green wool are running about farms in the Karoo region of Eastern Cape. Farmers have sent samples of the green wool for exam- ination at the agricultural col- lege at Grootfontein. A report from the college says the coloring is result of certain bacteria which spread in very damp condi- tions. Heavy rains have fallen this year in Karoo, South Africa's main sheep farming region. FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) Kenneth Dana, 70. says he is too busy to spWd his time doing what most men his age do. After all, he's a widower with an eight-year- old daughter to look after. "Old men usually are sitting around reading newspapers, leading the lives of old the retired Broadway actor said Tuesday. "But you can't sit around and read new- spapers when you have a young daughter to raise." He said that since he had never been around children before Marie Louise was born, raising her alone has sometimes been difficult. His wife, Helen, 43, died last year. "We're all alone in the world he said. "But we're making out all right, even though I'm not the best cook in the world." He walks Marie Louise to the school bus each day from their apartment and takes her to the beach on weekends. Both also enjoy swimming in the apartment pool. "My daughter and I have a marvelous he said. "There may be 62 years dif- ference in our ages but we don't have any commu- nications gap." "When she's 18 and I'm 80, won't it be great for me to totter into a bar with her and have our first beer together2" Dana said he appeared in 35 Broadway plays from 1922 un- til he retired in 1955. The family moved to Fort Lauder- dale three years ago. Conspirator rejected White House invitation WASHINGTON (AP) Convicted Watergate con- spirator E. Howard Hunt says he was invited to confer with lawyers for former president Richard Nixon at the White House last spring "concerning the president's defence." But. he says in a new book of memoirs, "the invitation was outrageously inappropriate." and he relused. Hunt says he was astonished at the invitation from Nixon lawyers James St. Clair and J. Fred Buzhardt. Hunt recalled that the Nixon tape recordings revealed that the former president once called him and other Watergate burglars "idiots" and "jackasses." "The incident had the effect on alienating me even further from the highest office in the land." he wrote. One of the allegations in the indictment of six men who will stand trial next week in the Watergate cover-up, is that Hunt received in cash after Nixon was told of IN MEMORIAM GROSS Justine.

When Hunt came to trial in January 1973 he pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy, burglary and wiretapping. He later was sentenced to serve 2Vz to 8 years in prison. Hunt, hired as a White House consultant in July 1971 at the recommendation of White House aide Charles Colson. said one of his first tasks was to interview an ac- quaintance from his Central Intelligence Agency days, Lt.- Col. Lucien Conein. Colson wanted the conversa- tion tape recorded, and ar- ranged to have the office of White House domestic counsel John Ehrlichman bugged for the interview, Hunt said. But the Secret Service merely concealed a tape recorder in a cushion of the sofa. Hunt wrote. "Compressed by the weight of Conein and myself on the sofa, the tape recorder func- tioned intermittently, and the portions that would have been of greatest interest to Colson had been lost."
