A24-Palm Beach Post-Times Sunday, December 12, 1976 t 1 IWIiHI Residents Fearful Of Indians From Pot Wire Services MASHPEE, Mass. - Residents in this tiny coastal community gathered in the Town Hall yesterday, fearing the Wampanoag Indian tribe will take most of Mashpee away. Many of the town's 1,288 residents and leaders were to meet with Rep. Gerry Studds (D-Mass.), hoping the federal government will protect an estimated $200 million worth of local ' property during what might develop into a prolonged court fight. "The federal government might as well recognize its obligation now rather than years from now," said Selectman Chairman Peter Benway. "Why wait until the town has dried 3 PIECE TRADITIONAL GROUP Sofa features loose pillow back design, knife edge reversible seat cushions, arm bolsters and lined kick pleat skirt.

The Wampanoag's are claiming 20,000 acres in the Cape Cod community, based on a law passed nearly 200 years ago. The 1790 Noninter-course Act required Congress to approve transfer of all Indian lands to white settlements. The tribe claims that approval was never granted. Their argument was effective in Gay Head on Martha's Vineyard, where residents Thursday voted to return 200 acres of undeveloped land to the Wam-panoags. Burglary Leads School Crime List WASHINGTON - Half of the elementary and high schools surveyed in a nationwide study had at least one school-related crime apiece during a recent five-month period, the U.S. Office of Education said yesterday. Leading the list of 11 crimes against person and property at the 8,000 schools surveyed were burglary, personal theft and drug abuse, in that order. Congress asked for the study to determine the frequency and seriousness of crime in the schools. It is the nation's first sample survey of school crime. Federal Agencies Violated Own Rules WASHINGTON - Federal agencies and departments violated the law of their own rules almost 900 times in the past three years of the Nixon administration, says a study released yesterday by a Ralph Nader group. "It is not a single malignant episode such as Watergate, but a widespread pattern of misbehavior," said the report by the Corporate Accountability Research Group. "It involves not criminal offenses but civil violations of agency rules and congressional statutes." The study included a list of 897 cases from' Jan. 1, 1971, to Aug. 9, 1974 in which a federal appeals court ruled the government had erred. The judgments ranged from decisions that the impoundment of funds appropriated by Congress was illegal to decisions that an agency had OCCASIONAL TABLES Handsome Traditionally styled tables that feature Beveled Marble insert tops and Antique Brass finish hardware.

Ford Motor Reduces '77 Sales Forecast DETROIT - Ford Motor Co. has cut 400,000 units from its forecast of U.S. car sales for 1977, citing waning interest in small cars and an inability to meet consumer demands for larger ones. In a year-end statement released yesterday, chairman Henry Ford II said that despite the reduction in the forecast, he is not pessimistic about the near-term future of the nation's economy. "We see no reason to fear that the slowing of the economic growth during this year signals the end of the present recovery in the United States," he said. Ford said he expects 1977 car sales, including imports, to total 10.6 million, down from the 11 million he predicted in September. His forecast for a record 3.4 million truck sales was unchanged. Industry analysts have predicted sales this year of 10 million cars and 3.2 million trucks. Massachusetts Stores To Defy Blue Law BOSTON Massachusetts store managers open their doors today to throngs of Christmas shoppers in violation of the state's centuries-old blue law ban on Sunday sales. More than five discount chains and many one-store operations said if competitors were opening, so would they. The rebellion followed a Friday ruling by state Supreme Court Judge Herbert P. Wilkins, who suggested so-called blue laws were unconstitutional. Many stores interpreted his re-ijiprks as a go-ahead to break the laws: Gov. Michael Dukakis, who supports repeal of the blue laws, said Friday the laws are "crumbling around us." Store officials met statewide early Saturday to discuss the plan and to check with local police to see how vigilantly they planned to enforce the law.
