Smylie Fights Wilderness Bill BEND, Ore. (DPI)--Gov, Robert i., Smylie declared today that the roposed wilderness preservation ill would create "a federal octo- ius whose tentacles would choke lalural development and harvest if Idaho's resources." Smylie's remarks' were contain- d in a statement delivered by claho Stale Mine Inspector 0. T. lansen on behalf of Idaho and he .state's mining industry before a subcommittee of the Senate In- orior and Insular Affairs Commit- here. Sen. Richard L. Neuberger (D-Ore.) presided, Idaho's chief executive said the icnale bill, which would establish national wilderness preservation system, was deemed undesirable ecau5e it would tend to prohibit daho's resources development. "The wording of the present Senile bill could make it become a ong tentacle of federal control vhich in time may restrict from public use many more millions of acres of presently unused Idaho mountainous areas and the use to become very meager, even by the so-called group of wilderness enthusiasts," said Smylie. He noted that since 1930 the fed- eral government has secured and deeded back into federal agencies more private lands than they have released by patents or other m e t h - ods. "It is not hard to envision a sin?/ creeping desire on the part of the federal government to absorb all the lands w i t h i n the state back into federal control that they might become stronger and Ihus usurp the very function for which this state was created in 1SUO," he said. Smylie said the proposed measure would not allow location of m i n i n g claims En areas to be withdrawn under the bill. "The wilderness area as proposed for Jclahn has not been adequately prospected to determine its mineral wealth," he said. "Near the fringes of the existing primitive areas have been found minerals and metals of extreme value to national security." The governor also pointed out t h a t there was no provision in the Senate bill for prevention of range and forest fires and that it would prohibit construction of roads necessary for development of water Guns/iof Victim Terrell Urges Groups (o Aid With Legislation Bannock County Rep, T.
