Melting snow and rain flooded some areas of eastern Oregon, forcing a few dozen people to evacuate their homes Friday.

Tom Daschle's choices for federal appointments. George Cunningham of Water-town, who was close to the appointment process during his years as chief of staff for Sen. George McGovern, said Daschle's appointments should fit administration expectations. "I think this is a slate that is politically sound and meets Clinton's criteria for a demographi-cally balanced group." Cunningham said the issue of appointing the most qualified person under that approach is open to question. "If you believe in that kind of thing, then it is good, but I am sure there are technically better qualified people out there. But with this administration, the President and Mrs. Clinton have said they want this to reflect America, and this reflects South Dakota." Daschle sent two names to Clinton for the federal district judgeship. Sioux Falls lawyer Larry Piersol is his first choice for the Pierre bench, but he also put Aberdeen lawyer Charles Korn-mann's name on deck for consideration in the event Piersol could not serve or if another vacancy occurs. Terry Pechota, a Rapid City lawyer, wanted the judgeship but applauded the choice of Piersol. "Larry has got a deep interest in Native American culture and tradition. He also has intellectual and academic qualifications and knowledge of the law, which is superlative." E. Steeves Smith, a Mitchell lawyer, was less complimentary about Piersol. "I would rather have Korn-mann. Piersol is a very good lawyer and certainly you can't criticize his legal ability, but he is kind of aloof." Lee Schoenbeck, a Webster lawyer, said Kornmann is well liked by lawyers he works with. "I think everybody would tell you that. He is very professional." Karen Crew, a Sioux Falls lawyer, said Kornmann is a credible choice for the next vacancy, but she isn't wishing him luck. "I have also applied for that position," she said. Crew said the appointment of Karen Schreier as U.S. attorney is a step in the right direction in getting more women into influential legal positions. Schreier got high marks from lawyers, including Frank Den-holm of Brookings. ''She has done well for a young person in law. She is reasonably well qualified and since we have a woman at the top (as attorney general), it is good to have a woman here, as long as we have a qualified person. Gender shouldn't make any difference." Shelley Wieck, a Sioux Falls lawyer, also was thrilled for Schreier. "Her reputation is good in the legal community. I don't think there has ever been a woman in this postion, so this is an excellent step for women. Qualifications should always come first, and with Karen, that was the case." Few in law enforcement know much about Bob Ecoffey, the Bureau of Indian Affairs director in Pine Ridge who was nominated for U.S. marshal, or his qualifica tions. Pennington County Sheriff Don Holloway said he has worked with Ecoffey and didn't have problems. "I am not a real close associate of him. He has been on the reservation, and my contact has been pretty limited, but he has a good law ' enforcement background and he knows South Dakota." Ron Morrow of Armour, the Douglas County sheriff for 21 years, was disappointed. "My personal choice was Lyle Swenson, (Davison County sheriff) due to his experience. I have never worked with Ecoffey, but I think they passed up the best man." W. Neil Evans, a Watertown farmer, said the recommended appointments of Dallas Tonsager to lead the Farmers Home Administration and Mike O'Connor as the Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service director, will bring some independence to the offices. "I think they will bring stability to the job that we didn't have before, and they will run their offices rather than being run." South Dakotans Continued from 1A the closest congressional race in the country. Piersol also successfully defended Newsweek magazine in a lawsuit filed by then Gov. Bill Janklow over the magazine's publication of information about an old rape allegation that was not proven. Kornmann was nominated by Sen. George McGovern for a federal judgeship in 1980, but President Carter was defeated before the U.S. Senate could act. Kornmann also has been a lobbyist for various interests. He could end up replacing federal Judge John B. Jones, who is eligible for retirement from his Sioux Falls position at the end of 1994. Ecoffey, the BIA director in Pine Ridge, also has worked for the U.S. Parks Service. Tonsager became head of the Farmers Union after Leland Swenson became director of the national organization. O'Connor, a 46-year-old farmer, was elected to the Legislature in 1987. He has served as vice president of the South Dakota Farmers Union. Couple seen Continued from 1A appropriate." Karen Tuttle, the aunt Archam-beau lived with since his mother died seven years ago, said officials are merely following hearsay. "I'm very unhappy with the situation because I know law enforcement is not responsible ihere," she said. "They don't like Archambeaus at all." Henrietta Neal, Bruguier's older sister, said Charles Mix officials have not been helpful. "It seems every time a problem happens with Native Americans, we're overlooked and set aside," she said. "I want something done about this." Charon Asetoyer, Bruguier's aunt, added: "When a Native American is charged with something, it's pursued heavily. However, when a Native American is a victim, it's not pursued with the same perseverance." Tuttle and Bruguier's family agree with Whalen that the bodies likely were not there after the accident. Family members and authorities searched the ditch and area several times. "I don't believe the bodies were there because if they weren't hurt, they would not lay down and die," Tuttle said. Dr. Brad Randall, the Minnehaha Countv coroner, has said Archambeau and Bruguier died of exposure and were not injured in the rollover accident. Randall, however, could not confirm from the autopsies whether the two died on the spot. Among the people who have come forward with information is a Lake Andes man who rode his horse through the ditch Jan. 31 looking for a lost hub cap, Whalen said. "This individual found no bodies and didn't find his hub cap either," he said. Asetoyer said Bruguier's body likely was not in the ditch after the accident because her glasses and shoes were gone when the body was found. Quentin Bruguier sat through Friday's news conference and said afterward that although it is difficult to not know what happened to his daughter, at least he knows where she is. "She's in her grave site and resting," he said. "But I don't want to close this case until they come up with facts."
