D.C. Waterfowl Area APolitical uuagmire r By Robert L. Jackson nnaniAuiuiN, u.t. - Across the Potomac River, a few mil , i t . ' . miies south of the U.S. Capitol, area for ducks and migratory This marshy nine acres, frequented by rare diving ducks, might also become a political quagmire ensnaring some outgoing officials of the Interior Department. It. could present the. incoming secretary, Walter J. Hickel, with one of his first problem cases. , For a House Government Operations Subcommittee, it "has Deen learned, is probing allegations that: The Interior Department overruled two of its agencies in approving a lucrative landfill permit for this marshy Virginia property, which is owned by the Teamsters Union Central States Pension Fund. The property, held in the name of Francis T. Murtha, executive secretary of the Teamsters Pension Fund in Chicago, 111., stands to gain in value from $15,300, its estimated present worth, to $1.3 million as a result of the Interior Department action. The department's final approval came last April despite fierce objections by conservationists after Senators Birch Bayh (Dem., Ind.) and Henry M. Jackson (Dem., Wash.), chairman of the Senate Interior Committee, telephoned Undersecretary of Interior David S. Black to urge that he consider granting such approval. Black did so. (Aides for the two senators said a constituent of Bayh's had a financial interest in an ' apart ment house-shopping center venture that would result from the . landfill. The constituent asked Bayh's help to get the permit, they said.) .Another Interior Department official, Stanley A. Cain, at first agreed with Black's position. But he later reversed himself, saying in a memorandum that "political considerations" entered into his original decision. Both the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, two branches of the Interior Department, Jiad opposed the landfill permit. They contended it would damage a valuable waterfowl habitat and adversely affect a small national park under development nearby. The property to be filled lies at the, edge of the Potomac River near Alexandria, Va., in what is known as the Hunting Creek area. ' " Not Signed By action of the Virginia Legislature in 1964, some 18 acres, including the nine acres to be filled, was conveyed to Murtha as trustee for a total price of $30,000. The actual conveyance has not yet been signed by Gov. Mills E. Godwin, jr. Murtha's contractor, Howard P. Hoffman Associates of New York City, is planning to fill i.1 the land for construction of a high-rise apartment building. It will eventually acquire the land from Murtha, an attorney for Hoffman said. Hoffman applied for the federal landfill permit, necessary because the land is on a navigable waterway, the Potomac River. The company is represented by the Boston-Washington law firm of Edward J. McCormack, jr., nephew of House Speaker John W. McCormack. Murtha, in an interview, said, "My recollection is not too clear" on who owns the land, but Joseph Teitelbaum, attorney for the Teamsters Pension Fund, confirmed the fund owns the land by action of the Virginia Legislature. Teitelbaum denied that the landfill permit makes the property worth $1.3 million - a fipnre comDuted bv witnesses who opposed the permit during hearings by the House Government Operations Subcommittee. But Teitelbaum said the permit nay at least triple the value of the land to $45,900. Figure "Arbitrary" The much higher estimate was computed by Representatives John P. Saylor (Rep., Pa.) and Henry S. Reuss (Dem., Wis.), who, appearing as witnesses at the subcommittee hearings, said the landfill prop-orty would be identical to an adjoining 4-8 acres acquired in Murtha's name tight years ago for $700,000, according to property records. Teitelbaum called the $700,000 fimiro 'nrhitrarv." He said it was "incidentally assigned" when the adjoining acreage was acauired in a foreclosure action. The legality and propriety of the Interior Department's approval of the landfill permit is challenged by Representatives Paul N. McCloskey, jr., (Rep., Calif.) and John E. Moss (Den., Calif.), both members of the subcommittee investigating the matter. ' "This seems to be a clear-cut case of overruling and ignoring the law for political reasons," McCloskey told a reporter. "And if government conserva- """n- imw, a cw : lies a nartlv suhmprsrprf foerfino migratory waterfowl. i Washington jps I fefeNORTH CAROLINA tionists can be overruled out of political considerations, the implications are very grave for everyone interested in conserving our waterways and natural resources." Although the Army Corps of Engineers actually issued the permit, clearance first had to! be obtained from the Interior Department because a conservation issue was involved. Never Intended McCloskey and Moss said Congress never intended that the National Park Service and the Fish and Wildlife Service could be overruled bv Interior Department officials, as hap- i ii . penea in mis case, on sucn a conservation matter. McCloskey said the new ses sion of Congress may be asked to revoke the landfill permit. If that should occur, Hickel might be forced to review the entire cass. Meanwhile, the investigating subcommittee the Natural Resources and Power Subcommittee is understood to be writing a critical report for approval by the full Government Operations Committee. A transcript of subcommittee testimony showed the panel was harshest in questioning Cain, who was assistant secretary of interior for fish, wildlife and parks until he resigned shortly after appearing before the congressmen. Cain was asked to explain what he meant by the "political considerations" which entered into his original decision to overrule the lower agencies. He said he did not mean partisan politics, but that "I had general information that the congressional interest was divided in this case." "Cain Mutiny" Cain's reversal of the findings of his agencies on Oct. 10, 1967, came to be known in the de partment as "the Cain mutiny," the subcommittee was told. Later, on Apr. 10, 1968, Cain changed his ruling to confon.i to that of the agencies. He said his first decision had been made without reviewing the agencies' findings. Asked why he did that, Cain said at one point: "I got the feeling there was some urgency. Now I do not know what the urgency was." Cain was asked by the subcommittee if Interior Secretary Stewart L. Udall took a personal hand in the case. Cain replied that Udall did not. He said the secretary told him: "It's In your program area. You handle it." After Cain's "flip-flop" a word he used himself a final decision in the case was left to Black, Cain's superior. Black told the subcommittee it was a hard decision, but he felt conservation aspects were not important enough in this case to deny the landfill permit Meanwhile, the permit, while it has been granted, has not been exercised. An attorney for Hoffman Associates said the de velopment firm will await the result of congressional interest.

The Stock Clearing Corp. is mainly responsible for the clearance and settlement of securities transactions among member firms. Its reorganization involves the appointment of three vice-presidents, with each to be responsible for a separate function. Shorter Day The nation's securities ex. changes will close 90 minutes earlier each day for an indefinite period, starting today, but will remain open Monday through Friday inclusive, instead of closing one day a week as has been the practice since June 12. Under the new hours the exchanges will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Iowa time. The shorter hours were adopted to aid the industry in catching up on the backlog of office paperwork. The Wednesday closings had been for that purpose also, but had been criticized by some members of the industry because they appeared to result in a significant buildup of volume on Thursday. Shorter hours had been tried between Jan. 22 and Mar. 1 of 1968. After the new hours were established volume dipped by more than two million shares daily, and it fell further 1st February.
