Thursday, August 29, 1974 HOPfc (ARK.) STAR Page Seven Indians §till hold old station Times MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) Indians who captured Milwaukee's old U.S. Coast Guard station three years ago still stubbornly hold their enclave in a fashionable neighborhood on the Lake Michigan shoreline. But they have mixed emotions about the take-over. "It's been a moral victory; that doesn't mean anything as far as what it is doing for the community," said Reynold Denny, now a youth program director for the city's Indian Urban Affairs Council. "It was never our idea to keep it," Denny said of the $200,000 facility between county parklands and the exclusive Boy drowns in Ouachita EL DORADO, Ark. (AP)Authorities recovered the body of Anthony C. Aiavolasiti, 18, of New Orleans Wednesday night from the Ouachita River where he had drowned 2% hours earlier, Detective Maurice Vinson of the Union County sheriff's office said. The drowning occurred near the Moro Bay State Park about 18 miles east of here. Vinson said Aiavolasiti and two other young men were returning to New Orleans after vacationing in North Arkansas. He said the three had stopped at Moro Bay to camp when they decided to go swimming. They swam across the river and were headed back when the two boys in front heard Aiavolasiti shouting, Vinson said. The two then turned back to help Aiavolasiti, but told authorities they had gotten about 10 feet from him when he went under the water. The victim's body was found about 35 feet from the bank in about 15 feet of water. We don't think mere s one thing funny about women's hats — not at today's prices.

Milwaukee Yacht Club. "We wanted to highlight the lack of facilities in our area." Drnny was one of about 30 American Indian Movement members who took over the station's two buildings early on an August morning in 1971, set up barricades and declared the site Indian land. They based their claim on 100-year-old treaty provisions that abandoned Indian property would revert to the native inhabitants. The Coast Guard had moved to new quarters and the federal government had not yet sold the land or shifted control of it to another agency. Law enforcement officers never seriously pressured the Indians to leave, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs said it is attempting to gain control of the land. The Indians established on the base the Indian Community School, which had an enrollment of 76 — from preschoolers through children of high school age — during the last academic year. Most are bused to the school from northwest Milwaukee, where most of the city's Indians live. The school has been operated with the aid of various federal grants, including $145,000 from the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Commission refuses to hear grievances LITTLE ROCK (AP; — The Arkansas State Highway Commission refused Wednesday to discuss highway employes' grievances with the international representative of a laborers' union. Maurice Smith of Bird Eye, commission chairman, told Lloyd Brammer that the commission's time was limited and that he should write a letter advising the commission what he wished to talk about. Brammer agreed to write the- requested letter and said it would be mailed within two days. He and J. Bill Becker, state AFL-CIO president, headed a group of four labor representatives who attended the commission's monthly meeting. Brammer told newsmen that foremen at the department are allegedly forcing prosepctive maintenance employes to sign statements saying they will not join the union if they are hired. He also alleged that not all maintenance employes had received wage increases which were authoritzed by the legislature this summer. Smith was asked by a newsmen if his refusal to discuss the matter with Brammer was a delaying tactic. Smith said it was not. He said the commission received the letter Wednesday and wanted to know in advance what Brammer wanted to discuss. The letter was dated Aug. 21. Smith told newsmen that the commissioners had not discussed the question of recoeniz- ing the union. Brammer said he wasn't disappointed at not being able to talk about union problems with the commission. "I am just glad to have the opportunity to meet the commission and start breaking bread so that we can talk over some of the grievances," he said. Smith was asked by reporters whether the commission now recognized the union. He said the commission hadn't discussed whether to recognize the union. Brammer would not say how many maintenance employes belonged to the union, but he said a majority were members. Youth killed JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Carroll Douglas Baskin, 17, of Jacksonville was killed Wednesday in a one-car crash. State Police said Baskin apparently lost control of the car while traveling south on Loop Road. Officers said the car went off the west side of the road, traveled 179 feet, returned to the road, left the highway on the east and traveled 103 feet into a wooded area where it flipped and came to rest on its top. Nkon busy on problems LOS ANGELES (AP) Friends of former President Richard M. Nixon report he is preoccupied with legal problems hut is holding up well physically and mentally in his virtual seclusion at San Clemente, the Los Angeles Times says. The assessment of Nixon's private life in the Times account is based on statements from several persons who have been in contact with Nixon since his resignation. Most of the sources were not identified. "Every one I've talked to says that Mr. Nixon is on top of things and that he is assessing his problems realistically," said Herbert G. Klein, former Nixon communications director who is now a Metromedia, Inc. executive. "He has a lot of personal decisions to make — about what real estate properties to keep and other such matters," another friend was quoted as saying. The Times account cited two basic problems for the former chief executive — his financial situation and the legal problems confronting him as an outgrowth of the Watergate case. One source said the former president spends about $10,000 a month for mortgage payments, staff salaries and legal expenses, not counting personal living expenses.

S. Customs agents are searching for a Renoir masterpiece which disappeared somewhere on its way between London and its owner in Minneapolis. Investigators said the transatlantic air passage took less than a day. But more than a week elapsed before the carrying case in which the Renoir was shipped reached its destination. The painting, an oil known a? "The Lady in a Flowered Hat," is valued by its owner, Minneapolis attorney Samuel Mas- Ion, at more than $100,000. He said it is insured for $150,000. The carrying case in which the painting was packed left London on Wednesday, July 31, and arrived at Detroit's Metropolitan Airport about 5:30 p.m. on the same day aboard a Pan American World Airwaysjlight. The canvas was to be transferred to a Northwestern Airlines plane for the final leg of its journey to Minneapolis. Authorities said the crate apparently remained at Metropolitan airport until 3 a.m. the next day. The carrying case arrived at Minneapolis' International Airport on Aug. 1 and was held in a "bonded" area for a Week before being delivered to Maslon, investigators in that city reported. Following prescribed proce- dure for costly imports, customs officials were present in Maslon's apartment when he opened the case on Aug. 8 and found it empty. Custom officials at Metropolitan declined ;to speculate where and when the painting was removed from its carrying case. They also were reluctant to discuss the delay or say how they handled the carrying case. JCPenney back to school sales 20% pff all our women's panties.
