ALBUQUERQUE - Peter MacDonald said Tuesday he may seek a second four-year term as Navajo tribal chairman, but he would like the nation's largest tribe to persuade him. Associated Press "When rights Equal opponents map strategy Opponents of the Equal Rights Amendment met Tuesday at the Thunderbird Country Club to formulate strategy to block its ratification in Arizona. Addressing the group were Sen. Trudy Camping, R-Phoe-nix; Rep. Diane McCarthy, sponsor of a House bill last session which purged state law of sexist references, and Mrs. Donna Carlson, Arizona coordinator for the STOP ERA organization. Mrs. Carlson criticized statements by leaders of the opposing Coalition for the ERA who contended that Mrs. McCarthy's legislation did not go far enough. "We have clearly exposed the ERA proponents as having no affirmative arguments to show any need for a con-s'itutionnl amendment." Mrs. Carlson declared. "We have listened to complaints about the fact that different states have different laws on p r o p e r t y, credit, child support, crime and labor tGiilation enough." she added. "Perhaps it's time people were reminded that this is our federal system," she said. "Totalitarian countries don't have problems with different s'ates havmg diller-ent laws." A bill to ratify the amendment died last session in the Arizona State Senate after public hearings. the time conies. next July, and the indications are that the people want me to stay if that is the general wish of a large number of Navajos then I will go ahead and do it again, I'm sure," MacDonald said while in Albuquerque to deliver a lecture "I think my administration and the programs I've tried to foster for the people are going to have to do the selling for me," said MacDonald, 44. of Window Rock. When MacDonald sought election in 1970 against two-term incumbent Raymond Nakai, he was director of the Office of Navajo Economic Opportunity, a multimillion dollar antipoverty agency. That job c a r r throughout the 25.1 mile reservation. e d him 0-square- change In recent years. He said that the spirit of com- . mcrcial competition since that time has changed. In other action the board tabled a decision on what to do about a cracking terrazzo floor in the new student union. The school has withheld $10,000 of the final settlement until the problem is solved. Three alternatives were mentioned by the board. The school can take a cash settlement; it can demand an entirely new job, which would involve closing the union for some weeks and loss of revenue or it can do some of both, to include needed spot repairs and a partial cash settlement. The terrazzo. averaging four to six inches thick in places, was improperly bonded to the concrete subfloor when laid, the board said. It is now separating in various places and is cracking. The cracks permit water from wet - mopping to cause additional separation, it was noted. In other business, the board accepted the resignations of three staff members: Dave Cothrun. chairman of the division of sciences; Abe Martinez, director of financial aids, and Gordon Snowbarger, dean of student activities. Cothrun has accepted a position as dean of instruction at New Mexico Military Institute at Roswell, N.M.: Abe Martinez will become associate dean of students at Eastern Arizona Junior College and Snowbarger will join the staff of Northland Pioneer Community College at Ilolbrook as dean of instruction. This contact caused the Nakai administration to claim he was violating OEO regulations regarding political activities. MacDonald resigned in June 1970 to campaign full-time for the tribal chairmanship. He received 60 per cent of the votes cast by 39.649 Navajos. As tribal chairman.
