By HAL SPENCER Associated Press Writer ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Gov. Jay Hammond on Monday roundly criticized state game biologists who plan to take unpaid leave to stump for the subsistence priority repeal Initiative,-but he said he would not try to stop them. Hammond suggested it was his duty to try to convince some 30 biologists that their efforts were misguided. But, he said, "you don't accomplish this with gag orders designed to stifle views different from one's own." Hammond said the biologists run the risk of 'creating anarchy in the management. of subsistence on federal lands and of inviting Uncle Sam and the courts to perform the task. He said he agreed with the biologists' contention that the law is flawed because it gives rural residents priority to fish and game, despite their eco- Sitka September Drier, Warmer Sitka School Board meets 7 p.m tonight at the Centennial Building Rousseau Room. Agenda items include a presentation on Community Schools program by Louis Licari, appointment of a board negotiating team chairman and approval of a cigarette tax resolution. Sitka's precipitation for September was 2.18 inches below normal for the month and the yearly total came to 7.54 inches below normal. Total precipitation for the month was 9.26 inches. In the report by Sitka Observatory, the highest temperature recorded was 65 degrees, on Sept. 24, and the lowest was 35, Sept. 28. The mean high was 58.7 degrees, the mean low 46.3 and the average mean 52.5, 1.1 degrees above normal for Sept. The observatory recorded 20 cloudy days, 9 partly cloudy days and one clear day. nomic status. But the way to address the issue, he said, is through legislation and changes in regulations. Hammond said the biologists reflect "the usual naivete of professional biologists when dabbling in politics." His statements came after a private meeting with Fish and Game Commissioner Ron Skoog on the explosive issue, which has caused a rift in the department. The commissioner declined to reveal what was discussed. Later, Skoog said he understood that about 30 biologists have asked their regional supervisors for time off to campaign for subsistence repeal. Skoog has left it up to supervisors to decide how many should be granted leaves. "I cautioned them not to let so many of their people go that they hurt operations," he said. Regional Game Supervisor Sterling Eide of Anchorage, who himself is planning to take time off to speak for repeal, said he has "16 or 17 leave slips" and is worried his office will be short of staff if he grants all the leaves. Skoog said he feels his employees have the right on their own time to speak on the issue -- "I don't believe I have the right to try to suppress somebody to speak their own mind." Hammond said if the initiative is approved, the Legislature is barred from acting on the matter for two years. And he contended even the best management decisions made after repeal would wind up in court. "The worst thing initiative proponents could do is assume they've won" if the subsistence law is repealed, he said. "There'll be no winners." The biologists who actively MEET YOUR CAME WARDEN "The State's inability to provide [an acceptable] program will, however, force us to assume fish and game management in Alaska, Such a step would run counter to ourphilosphy but enforcing the law is our sworn duty." -- Secretary of the Interior James Watt. February, 1982 support repeal are led by Game Division Director Ron Sommerville and includes regional supervisors Eide and Richard Bishop of Fairbanks. "We have a professional responsibility to the people of the state" to tell them the current subsistence law is flawed," Sommerville said. Some in the department feel biologists should stay out of the issue, fearing that the credibility of the department will be undermined. "I guess it raises the question of whether the biological expertise is really objective or not," said Dennis Kelso, director of the department's subsistence division. Pioneers Plan For Convention The October meeting of the Pioneers of Alaska was held recently. Business of the evening was finalization of plans for the state convention of the Pioneers of Alaska which will be held here the first week in November. Joe Ashby and Maxine Brittell co-chaired the meeting that heard reports on the convention booklet, housing by Ann Strain, entertainment and smorgasbord by Carl and Ginny Rusher, favors by Mary Richards and fundraising by Ivan Rezek. Delegates to the convention from Sitka Igloo No. 12 are Ashby, Glenn Morgan, Afton Coon, Rezek, Richard Nelson and Toivo Andersen. Alternates are French LaCoure, Fred Geeslin, John Dapcevich and Everitt Calhoun. Those elected to represent Auxiliary No. 22 are Alpha Kinberg, Strain, Edna Nelson, Barbara LaGuire, Bobby Krist and Pearl Rezek as alternate. Kinberg appointed Louise Brightman, Vera Coon and Doris Smith to the Membership Committee. Opal McNavish and Madge Stragier were hostesses for the evening. Visiting members were Helen Finn, Florella Nelson, Margaret Meland, Thelma Peterson, Mary Anderson, Lois Marsh and Olga Kletzing. The next meeting is set for Dec. 3. Debated if Ballot 7 passes, a new law will be enacted, will mean.- This · Federal government will take control of Alaskan Fish and Game Management · Equal access of out-of-state sportsmen to Alaskan fish and game · possible cancellation of fishing and hunting seasons Federal control of fish and game management means several things -- none of them good for the Alaskan sportsman, it would mean that out-of-staters would have equal access to Alaskan fish and game -- they could pay the same fees, and, in the event of a lottery, have the same chance of winning a permit. And if the federal government takes control of fish and game management, there may be no season at ail on federal lands. Funding Alaskan game management is not a high priority of our budget-minded federal administration. Rather than provide the money needed for game management, the federal government might just cancel the fishing and hunting seasons altogether. The Subsistence law today is not perfect, as few are. But it is immeasurably better than what we would have under federal jurisdiction. And the law is not based on race -- the law treats all Alaskans with equal consideration. No ifs, ands, or buts about it -- if the Subsistence law is repealed and the new law is enacted, the federal government will take control of its lands. And we'll all have a new game warden. vote Against #7 On November 2nd Paid for by: Alaskans for Sensible Fish And Game Management P.O. Box 2760, Anchorage, AK 99510.

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A four-way debate Monday on the proposal to move the capital to Willow focused on the projected $2.84 billion cost, with proponents calling the figure phony, and opponents saying it was the most reliable information available. Anchorage Times Publisher Robert B. Atwood, during a luncheon debate before the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, called the cost estimate prepared by the New Capital Site Planning Commission a "fantastic figure, designed to scare the voters." The commission, appointed by Gov. Jay Hammond, represented a "stacked view" of people who did not want the capital moved from Juneau to Willow, he charged. Juneau Mayor Bill Overstreet, speaking for the anti- move Alaska Committee, said the estimate was the best information available on which voters could expect to make a judgment as to cost. He said the commission was comprised of an equal number of pro-and anti-movers, and called the charge it was stacked with anti-movers "absolutely untrue." Atwood and Overstreet seemed to draw equal measures of laughter and applause as they traded barbs during the debate that also included Anchorage businesswoman Jan Faiks, a pro-mover and state Senate candidate, and Jim Clark, chairman of the Alaska Committee. Ms. Faiks said the capital should be moved to provide the largest proportion of the state's population easy access to the capital. But Overstreet and Clark argued that the state should increase its use of telecommunications to shorten the distance between Juneau and the rest of Alaska. Voters on Nov. 2 will cast ballots on whether to authorize the legislature to spend up to $2.8 billion to move the capital. Proceeds from land sales at the site are expected to total $384 million; reducing the total to. about $2.5 billion, the commission said. The body places the cost of leaving the capital in Juneau at $342 million.
