(AP) Minnesota Natural Resources Commissioner Robert Herbst says the state plans to "file a strong defense and keep our options open," in its legal battle with the White Earth band of Chippewa Indians. Herbst reiterated Tuesday that the state is willing to compromise on the questions of state and Chippewa Rights to Search is discontinued SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) An American search team, tantalizingly close to the trail of missing motorcycle racer Fred Mundy a few days ago, has given up in frustration, leaving the search to a handful of Mexican cowboys. "His actions appear to be irrational," San Diego Sheriff's l.t. Robert Morse, coordinator of the search, said late Tuesday after returning from the rocky, desolate Baja California desert where Mundy became lost May 1. He said he was puzzled by Mundy's apparent failure to leave any clues for the massive search team. "He must know- by now that there is a search going on for him," Morse said. Mundy, 46, took a wrong turn during a motorcycle race sponsored by businessmen from Riverside, Calif., where he owns a pharmacy. Three days later, the abandoned motorcycle was found, out of gas, with "SOS" scrawled in the dirt alongside. fishing, hunting and gathering wild rice on the White Earth Reservation near Bemidji in northwest Minnesota. Last Friday, Atty. Gen. Warren Spannaus mailed a response to the White Earth lawsuit against Herbst and other DNR officials which flatly denied the White Earth claim that U.S.-Chippcwa treaties of 1864 and 1967 guaranteed game rights and licensing to the Indians. The Spannaus response also asked the court to dismiss the White Earth suit. In a May 24 letter to President Harry Boness Sr. of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, Herbst proposed: "Without committing the state on the existence of the claimed Indian game, fish and ricing rights. . .1 would encourage you to see if an arrangement could be worked out on the tribal level which would permit the state to offer a basic, unrestricted hunting and fishing license valid on all reservations involved." "The state could administer such a system, collect the sur- chargse and transmit the receipts; but the state could not be placed in a position of making an allocation between or among various bands." "Such an allocation would have to be worked out within the framework of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe itself." The Minnesota Chippewa Tribe is divided into six bands. Herbst said an earlier agreement with the Leech Lake Chippewa Reservation is "enormously cumbersome and only marginally productive" and such "piece-meal agreements" are not desirable. Under that agreement approved by the 1973 Legislature, the state collects a $1 surcharge on all licenses of persons who want to hunt or fish on the I>eech Lake Reservation and transmits the proceeds to the Ijeech Lake Indians. * Israel Continued from page 1 ership. This may come Thursday. Israel held a five-hour cabinet session Tuesday, apparently making some key concessions, and Kissinger decided to travel what he called "the final lap" by going to Damascus. Before leaving the Syrian capital, Kissinger paid a half- hour "courtesy call" on Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, in Syria on an unexplained visit. Kissinger began his current peace mission with long talks with Gromyko in Geneva, and the two met again May 7 on Cyprus. U.S. officials termed Gromyko a "not very active participant" in (he final drive toward a settlement. Issues still pending apparently included Syria's reluctance to restrain Palestinian guerrillas and Syria's insistence on linking any initial disengagement with a subsequent Israeli pullback from all occupied territory.

A teacher hired for a year to serve during a teacher's leave of absence may be unemployed at the end of the school year. Then the teacher would be eligible for unemployment pay. The board employed Gordon Dahlseide of Morris to teach agriculture. He will replace Richard Allen who has resigned. David Wass, who has been teaching halt time, will be employed full-time as an • agriculture teacher. The board did not respond to requests for support from educational television stations KWCM at Appleton and KFME at Fargo. Elementary director l-anglie said there is not enough use of the facilities to warrant a recommendation for support. The board approved an increase of three cents a mile for summer school bus transportation from June 10 to July 19 after hearing a recommendation from James Neuman, assistant superintendent. The charge will be 45 cents a mile plus $11 a day for regular buses, 30 cents a mile plus $11 for vans. The district will pay $10 a day for rental of two shuttle buses. Negotiations are continuing with teachers, secretaries, administrative personnel and custodians.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats are moving ahead with plans for a $6.6 billion personal income tax cut in the face of new warnings from President Nixon that the action could fuel more inflation. Senate leaders said the tax cut proposal would be called up soon for floor debate and predicted that it would pass their branch. Whether the House will go along is unclear. The President's views were transmitted to the Capitol in a special report of his Council of Economic Advisers which said a recession is much less likely now. It estimated the inflation rate would drop to about 7 per cent by the last quarter of 1974. The *Bumpers Continued from page 1 to deal with problems such as inflation, energy, federal spending and post-Watergate political clean-up. Fulbright stressed his seniority and experience, but at 69 said he would "cheerfully accept" retirement if that was the voters' verdict. With 2,626 of the state's 2,786 precincts reporting, Bumpers had 345,801 votes, or 65 per cent, to Fulbright's 187,718, or 35 per cent- Morse, who was voted out at the height of his anti-Vietnam war effort, used the related theme of usurpation of constitutional power by the President, but said "the numbers of us opposed to it are increasing." With 1,647 of the 2,514 Oregon precincts reporting, Morse had 89,211 votes, or 49.2 per cent, compared to 71,604, or 39.5 per cent, for his chief opponent in the four-way race, slate Senate President Jason Boe. In the Arkansas Democratic gubernatorial primary, former Rep. David H. Pryor, 39, of Little Rock held a bare majority of 51 per cent. Faubus was in second place with 33 per cent, followed by Lt. Gov. Bob Riley. Pryor must stay above 50 per cent to avoid a runoff. In the Oregon gubernatorial race, state Sen. Victor Atiyeh scored an upset victory over Secretary of State Clay Myers in the Republican primary, while former state Treasurer Robert Straub led a field of 10 Democrats. Republican Gov. Tom McCall is barred by Oregon law from seeking a third consecutive term. With a ,lja 01 Kentucky's 3,268 precincts reporting, the 47- yearold Cook had 87.2 per cent of the Republican vote, and Ford, 49, had 84.8 per cer.t in the Democratic primary. rate was 12.1 per cent in the first three months of this year, the highest svnce 1951 during the Korean War. However, Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., vice chairman of the Senate-House Economic Committee, told a newsman "there is no anti-inflation program at all in this report. "In his current budget, the President recommended one ot the biggest spending increases in history, yet his report talks about fiscal restraint," he said. Proxmire cited as "positively harmful" the proposal in the report to deregulate natural gas, asserting this would mean further sharp increases in utility bills to consumers. Nixon said in the report "we must avoid the temptation of tax reduction without expenditure reduction," but did not recommend any specific government spending cuts. However, the leading Senate tax cut advocates contend that this is the way to restore some of the consumer buying power lost because of irreversible increases in the price of oil and products manufactured with large inputs of energy. The proposal advanced by Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., Walter F. Mondale, D- Minn., Russell B. Long, D-La., and Hubert H. Humphrey, D- Minn., would give taxpapers a choice of an $825 personal exemption or a $190 tax credit. The present exemption is $750. The council said industrial production should increase at a 4 per cent annual rate after mid-year. But the report also said unemployment may rise to between 5.5 per cent and 6 per cent by the end of the year. The rate was 5 per cent in April.

"What comes through in these tapes is not the man 1 have known for many years." he said. —Joseph J. Connolly, the lawyer who headed the prosecution of former Atty. Gen. Richard G.

A source in the prosecutor's office said Connolly felt Kleindienst should have been charged with perjury, rather than being allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor. that any form of anarchy ends fatally and opens the door to new dictatorships, to regimes like the one overthrown April 25." Spinola, a general who came to power after the military revolt that overthrew the old rightist government four weeks ago, did not specifically mention a wave of leftist-inspired strikes crippling the country. But he left r,o doubt he meant they must stop. "From here. I alert all Portuguese that the democratic ideas of liberty that inspired the Movement of the Armed Forces is being criminally undermined by counterrevolutionary forces. "These forces are situated in diverse sectors of the nation and have as their odiverse sectors of the nation and have as their only objectlvement."
