Winfield Dunn says although he is opposed to the basic principle of forced busing of school children he does not intend to halt the practice in Tennessee. At a news conference In Knoxville Saturday, Dunn said he favors allowing busing situations to be handled within individual localities, but his stand in opposition to forced busing principles has not changed.

Attorney Quentin Kopp said he mailed the plea Friday to the clerk of the high court, who will forward it to Justice William 0. Douglas, summering in the Cascades. . The local US. District Court and the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals both have refused to intervene in the plan on behalf of the Chinese appeal. It argues that Chinese students would be bused solely because of their race and that · this would be unconstitutional. The busing order by U.S. Dist. Court Judge Stanley Weigel should be applied only to white and black students,-the appeal argues. Kopp said he expects a response from Douglas possibly within 1(1 days.

W) -- Thriteen hundred Taos-Fueblo Indians danced, sang and feasted over the weekend as they celebrated the return to their control of 45,000 acres they consider a religious shrine. Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton visited yesterday and was applauded when he began dancing with tribal men and women. Teams of drummers sat in the middle of the Pueblo plaza and beat out a tribal song in his honor. Morton, who spent about 50; minutes at the celebration, told - a crowd, "Most, things that are good come from a struggle. In these days when land is so important America needs to have the Indian community. Their great skills and spiritual understanding are desperately needed by this country." The restored area includes high-mountain Blue Lake, a religious shrine, which Morton saw as he flew in by helicop- ter. The lake site is at an elevation of 11,600 feet in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. He described the lake, seldom seen by the white man, as "very beautiful, very dark blue in color and blind with virgin timber." The land was taken by the federal government in 1906 and became part of what is now known as the Carson Na-. tional Forest. It was administered by the U.S. Forest Service for the Agriculture Department with certain use privileges for the Indians. Last December, President Nixon signed legislation giving the the Taos Indians trust title to the acreage under interior Department administration. Tribal war chief Reyes Mirabal said yesterday: ."We were unable to carry on our religious practices because of interferences of non-Indians and the American government. They caused" suffering because, of our lack of freedom. We have been tortured over these years." .;. Speaking in the native Tigua tongue, Mirabal said of Blue Lake: "We,know there is a living god there. Spiritually,-we are blessed from day to day. We want to stop and express appreciation to the greater maker." HALIFAX, N.S. (M -- Floodwaters dropped by Hurricane Beth washed out highways, flooded hundreds of homes and business establishments and inundated farmland today in southern -and eastern Nova Scotia. "The province counted millions of dollars in damage. Halifax International Airport, 23 miles north of the city measured 10.49 inches of rainfall in a 30-hour period. There-.was no report of any casualties ii the province. Mayor Roland Thornhill of nighboring Dartmouth described flooding in his city of 60,000 as a disaster. He called on federal and provincial governments for financial aid. At least 500 homes were flooded in Dartmouth, sections of many streets were awash or cut by rampaging floodwaters and the mayor expressed fear that a dam in the city would break under the pressure of rising water. The flooding in wide sec- Man Held In Houston Incident HOUSTON Iff) -- Police yesterday charged Lyman Larry ·Taylor,-.25 with impersonating a police officer and false imprisonment after he allegedly stopped a Houston couple and took., away a woman. The couple, Mr. and Mrs. Valey Green, told officers a man approached their cat- while they .waited at a stop light on a Houston street late Saturday night and told them they were under arrest.,, They said after riding them around in his car for awhile, he put Green out and told him to follow in his own car to the police station. Green, 33, said he soon lost sight of the vehicle bearing his . wife and went to the station. Mrs, Green, 23, said the . man put her out 'of the car on a Houston street about three hours later. .When arrested, police said, Taylor was driyihg a car equipped, with a police radio. The car, they said, had been reported stolen by Richmond, Va, police. lions of eastern Nova, Scotia resulted from heavy rainfall associated w i t h Hurricane ·Beth, a tropical storm with winds up to 80 miles an hour that moved northeast along the province's east coast. Main highways in several sections of the province were cut. Road travel from Halifax to northern and eastern: Nova Scotia was stopped, traffic was diverted from-Route 102 -- between Halifax and Truro -- the province's most, heavily traveled highway. An alternate route was open for a brief period, but was closed again When .waters rose over it at .a point about 30 miles north of Halifax. Nearly nine inches of rain fell in a 24-hour period in the Halifax area, but the hurri- stayed far enough offshore to spare land areas its damaging winds. Mayor Thornhill said damage in Dartmouth alone would run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. City Works Department crews in Dartmouth reported more than 400 calls from residents reoorting flooded homes. The Halifax Works Department received . 450 . calls, mostly from the Fairview area, where pressure from floodwaters in storm sewers lifted manhole covers out of position. ' Several lakes in Dartmouth overflowed their banks. A t ' Ahtigonish about 130 ... miles northeast of here, police reported 600 persons had to flee homes in a flooded trailer park. They were housed temporarily in a residence hall at St. Francis Xavier University. Rising waters created severe flooding conditions at Antigonish yesterday, but police said the waters began receding today and that the town streets had become passable. Highways through much of the Canadian maritime province were hard hit by the heavy rain. Many bridges- were down, and the Highways Department urged motorists to stay off all Nova SCotia roads,until damage can be assessed. - .

Bus service,' suspended in Halifax last night, was restored to normal on all but one route today. Air traffic through Halifax was reported on schedule, but all .freight trains and some passenger trains were halted.
