Knowing this the conservation-minded were already suspicious of Hickel, who as Interior Secretary would enforce conservation, and he all but. invited their opposition when he came to Washington last December for a "get-acquainted news conference. He said up public lands and preventing development of their resources or putting them aside for no special reason was not good practice. Nor, in some cases, was making water quality standards so strong as to endanger industrial development. And, he added, the domestic oil industry, particularly in Alaska with its new, rich North Slope field, must, be helped. With these comments in mind, along with Hickel's reaction to Secretary of Interior Steward Udall's order freezing all oil leases until native land claims are settled — "What Udall can do by executive order, I can undo" — a bloc of senators began planning thevr attack. Democrats Gaylrod Nelson, Frank Church, George S. Mc- Govem, and Lee Metcalf have said they'll demand that Hickel explain his views on subjects ranging from pollution control to mine safety. Privately they concede there are no grounds for denying him confirmation, and a Senate aide has said, "What these hearings may really turn out to be is a process of education for Mr. Hickel on the need for good con servation attitudes."

A personnel sergeant in Head quarters Battery, 47th Artillery Brigade (Air Defense), he enter- red the Army in November 1965 more specific, questioning Hickel on his attitude to the proposed free trade zone at Machiasport, Maine. Hickel's attempts- to foster the i Alaska oil industry have led j them to suspect that he is too cozy iwth the major firms, most) of which arevehemently opposed to the Machiasport pro- j ject.

Kretzer, son of Mrs. Vernon W. Nance of Kell. 111., has helped the 61st Military Airlift Wing earn the U. S. Air Force Outstanding Unit Award. . Airman Kretzer, an aircraft mechanic at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, with a unit of the 61st it gets there, Hickel probably will be in charge. Oil industry opposition to the project is based on a large oil refinery which Occidental Petroleum Corp. plans to build in the zone and operate on Lybian oil. Before it can sell the refinery's Gar- 1 products in the United States, i (he Interior Department must grant it a share of oil import j quotas. The major firms fear, the plan would cut into their share of the oil quotas and undercut their prices in the New England market. Another Nixon appointment which drew some criticism on Capitol Hill, that of millionaire industrialist David Packard, to be under secretary of defense, will wear a distinctive ribbon i comes before the Armed Servas a permanent decoration. This 1 is the fifth time that the 61st has won the award. The- -wing, with headquarters at Hickam, and its many units located throughout the Pacific and Southeast Asia, are charged with the, Military Airlift Command's airlift responsibilities J Co. from Hawaii west to Pakistan, | the and Japan to Antarctica.
