The ruling-; by Deputy Solicitor Edmund T. Fritz rejecting the Makah claim to the 719-acre tract was made public Tuesday by Sen. Jackson (D-Wash). It was disclosed to Jackson in a letter from •the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The question or .title to the Ozette Reservation has been up in the air since 1941 when' the Mafcahs first pressed their claim. on grounds that the Ozette Indi- ians were of Mafcah blood. ; Various proposals have been made by Jackson, other, members of the state's congressional delegation and others for adding the land .to Olympic "National: The reservation, lies, . near,-,- the/. tip"' ^-'Sl ''* - v ''"- binson said.

The resolution reads, "Resolved that the Chamber of Commerce go -on record as recommending .to the General Services Administration that the original owners of all land in the Crescent Beach-Camp Hayden area -now owned toy the General Services Administrtion be given the first -opportunity to purchase these lands and that the OSA sale be held tip at this time pending, legislation." ' Critchfield announced that Clallam County is desirous of establishing county parks, of about 200 acres in extent, in each of t h e three commissioners' districts. The county has offered to purchase OSA land in the Salt Creek area near Crescent Bay for use as a public park. This land is not Included in the 520 acres at Camp Hayden advertised for sale Dec. 20. The wording of the resolution does not distinguish one sale from ,the other. ''.' ; " ''.-' e Following Critehfield's remarks several members; asked questions and made remarks from the floor. ROAD HEARINGS Critchfield said he attended a hearing in Seattle last Thursday where forest access roads were discussed 1 . He said It is to the advantage of Clallam County to secure more federal access roads into the forests and said support of a bill, now in .the U.S. Senate, would be good policy. Another matter discussed at the hearing was the feasibility 'of extending Federal Highway 10 to the Olympic Peninsula. Chairman J. J. Dailey of the Roads and Bridges Committee, reported he -attended a,. legislative fact, finding' committee heartag on Cross-Sound transportation in Seattle ..'Friiiay ;" Th« ' matter ,p£ bridge Should the department's present ruling not he appealed toy the. Makahs, Jackson said he would renew his requests for inclusion of the area within the park boundaries. The Ozet f e 'Reservation was created in 1893 'for members of the Ozette Tribe not then living upon any reservation. It is now unoccupied and used only by members of the Mafcah Tribe for hunting, fishing and camping purposes. In his ruling, Fritz held: "None of the Indians who now use the site of the Ozette Reservation, whether they be descendants of Ozette Indians or of other •bands and tribes, are members of a recognized Ozette tribe, Therefore, no group now in existence can be said to have such beneficial ownership right in the , land as would be sufficient without further act of Congress to support a claim against the United States. Descendants of Ozette Indians relinquished .all rights to ' the reservation, Fritz said, when they did not return to cast votes to, determine 'the future of the reservation lands hi >a 1953 election. .. financing i-p^oibamy^jri}! .Abe out" hi the' next'' State -Le'gislwiire, Dailey said.. ••..'. • • The Lions' Club will have a midwinter convention in Port Angeles in November 1960 with between five and six hundred in attendance, Pres.

April 4 Tentative Date For Boat Haven Bid Call Th U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has set April 4 as the tentative call date on bids for Boat Haven expansion, Port Manager Jack P. Hogan said Monday afternoon. The proposed date for opening of bids is May 6. Hogan told members of the port commission that Army engineers suggested that the port call for .bids on its portion of the project 10 days later than the Army call.

ALLIES APPEAR AGREED ON PLAN FOR BOTH MISSILES AND MORE TALKS WITH RUSSIA By JOHN M, HIGHTOWER PARIS UP) — The United States and its European allies were reported substantially agreed Tuesday on a compromise formula on missiles ^and exploration of further talks with Russia as the NATO summit conference opened its second session. President Eisenhower was absent from the session at its start, but joined the late afternoon meeting 42 minutes later. Presidential secretary James C. H a g e r t y said the 'President's health was not involved in his late appearance. • Secretary of State Dulles said the President's presence was not needed because the foreign ministers were still working on pa" ; " . The foreign ministers of the 15 nation alliance spent almost three hours discussing relations with Russia and other political problems 'before the chiefs of government met. COMPROMISE The compromise formula which they were reported to have worked out involved the exploration of possible settlements with Russia while plans are developed for arming NATO Europe with nuclear missiles. , Diplomats familiar with the discussions said there was substantial accord on the Russian issue — that every possibility for East- West .'agreement should be explored fully. The NATO permanent council, it was said, will get the task of consulting on the recent series of letters Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin sent to NATO members warning of nuclear missiles danger. Each country will then send its own reply hi keeping with a common line. Progress made on this basic political Issue indicated broad acceptance of the idea that NATO military planners can go ahead with detailed work on the next few months. But final decisions on installing Intermediate range ballistic missiles (IRBM) bases in Europe with American-controlled nuclear warhead stockpiles may be deferred for the time. Besides the questions of missiles and negotiating with Russia, other issues tossed to the foreign min- Hers for discussion at their second session of the conference included disarmament, German reunification, the Middle East, relations between NATO and other international organizations, Africa, economic aid and closer political consultation among the allies. U. S. SURPRISED The sharp difference of. approach between the United States and the European allies toward Europe's missile age security seems to have taken the,United States somewhat by surprise. American officials had hoped for acceptance in principle of their plan to stockpile nuclear warheads land supply medium range missiles to NATO countries willing to accept them. Speculation now is that the most likely settlement on this issue is a European welcome to the American loffer. .

American and other diplomats said the Western powers meanwhile could explore Russia's willingness to negotiate and find out whether any real agreements are possible. Elsenhower and Dulles, while not ruling out the princple of negotiation, think nothing would come of East-West talks hi the foreseeable future. But they were told 'almost bluntly by European speakers' Monday that they must dp.- something along that line. ' Both German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and .

(Jfl — The U.S. Air Force launched an Atlas intercontinental ballistic missile Tuesday. The huge silvery weapon roared skyward at 12:39 p.m. (EOT). The takeoff appeared at the very start to be successful. The tall, slender tube rose straight upward from its launching stand, very slowly at first. Gradually it climbed faster as the mighty thrust of its three rocket engines began to take effect. Ground haze and heavy thunderclouds, which rolled In at midmorning, obscured the view. After leaving the ground, the missile, trailing a thick streak of' flame, soon disappeared into the overcast. It was visible about one minute before it climbed into the thick cloud banks overhead. At about the time it disappeared, the first roar of Its engines could be heard on the distant beaches. Although the missile could not be seen thereafter, the thunder of Its engines could be heard more than four minutes. There was no way that watchers here could determine whether the firing was entirely succssful, "but it unquestionably was a much better shot than the two previous Atlas test firings. In both earlier launchings the missiles wobbled and had to toe destroyed. Only a sprinkling of each watchers observed the fiery blastoff. The launching drew attention from the entire Free World, since Russia. has claimed a successful firing of its own Intercontinental missile. At, Washington, a Defense Department preliminary announcement said the launching was a success. art- Five minutes later nouncement said: "This was a limited r*nffl,te*t of several hundred mllefe*r*% v "The missile flew Its pfe&eri course and landed in iffie-'. pre- selected impact area."

Russ Papers Say NATO Differences Irreconcilable' MOSCOW UP) — Pravda and Xz- vestia said Tuesday the opening of the NATO summit conference laid bare "Irreconcilable contradictions" in the Western camp. Soviet propaganda continued to hammer on the theme that the Western Alliance is torn toy distrust and dissension. Pravda. said President Eisenhower is trying to do the impossible — trying to soothe public opinion iat the same time he at- pts to "maintain the atmosphere of International distrust . and pressure the members of NATO into accepting Amerian military plans which would turn Europe into an atomic graveyard." The main target of the Soviet propaganda remains the U.S. pro- xisal to equip the continental al- ies with intermediate range ballistic missiles and to put stockpiles of atomic warheads in Europe, The Soviet editorials said the only solution to the current Impasse is negotiations with the Soviet Union. Moscow Radio said Eiscnhow- er's opening NATO speech disappointed those who hoped for a new course toward world peace.

Presidential press secretary James C Hagerty said the Pres- dent had showed up to quiet the apprehension his absence caused The President was reported feeing fine, Hagerty said the session was still dealing mainly with the drafting of ideas and proposals and he indicated Eisenhower's stay might be a brief one. Dulles had said British Prime Minister Macmillan also might not attend the start of the session, but all the other government chiefs, Including Macmlllan, were on hand from the beginning. Eisenhower earlier in the day paid a sentimental visit to his old NATO command and remarked I haven't felt better In a long time."
