11B July 13,1975 TRIGGER Order Reneges on Land Offer; Indians, Whites Trade Gunfire KESHEKA, Wis. (AP)-Sporadic gunfire erupted for the second straight night Friday in Menominee County where tensions between whites and Indians have mounted since the breakdown of an agreement on the ownership of an unused religious estate. A10 p.m. curfew remained in effect Saturday night, and ail taverns in the county stayed shuttered at the sheriff's orders. · * · MEANWHILE, OFFICIALS of the Alexian Brothers, a Roman Catholic order based in Chicago, called a news confer- -APWlrephoto Brother Maurice Wilson Explains Alexian Brothers Won't Deed Property to Indians ence Saturday and defended their recent decision to renege on an agreement to deed a former novitiate to the Menominee Indian tribe. The agreement was worked out last winter to end a 34-day siege of the 262-acre estate by armed militants. The county, a former Indian reservation, and neighboring northwoods lake resort area were the scenes of gunfire and firebombings which damaged several homes And businesses Thursday night and early Friday in the wake of the announcement by the Alexian Brothers. Wisconsin National Guard Col. Hugh Simonson, on the scene as an observer, confirmed reports by police from neighboring counties of gunfire in Menominee County on Friday night. "It was apparently not too serious," Simonson said. "There were no .injuries we know of." · * * WHITE RESIDENTS, includes many who own seconds homes in the poster vacation area,,.were reportedly arming themselves for all-night vigils Friday. No confrontations between whites and Indians were reported. Menominee County Sheriff Kenneth Fish, a member of the tribe, was unavailable for comment about reports of gunfire or on two arrests allegedly made in the fire bombings. At the news conference, spokesmen for the religious order reiterated earlier statements that they are still open to suggestions for converting the estate and mansion to an Indian community facility- such as a medical clinic or day care center--provided the financial aspects can be worked out. Brother Maurice Wilson said the order had not anticipated that the announcement might trigger violence, which broke out about 24 hours after Indians learned of its decision on the land. He also chafed at comments by Gov. Patrick Lucey that the Alexians should have consulted state officials before reneging on the agreement. "We didn't notify Pope Paul,\either," he sai'd. Run Scared, Republicans h ' (Are Urged CIA Infiltration Probe Likely, Says President !'GULF SHORES, Ala. I/Pi - President Fjord's campaign director said Saturday lhat Republicans should "run scared." %Howard "Bo" Callaway said he offered that advice because Democrats do a far better job of closing ranks after coming out of a contested situation. T-Callaway, until recently Secretary of tile Army, spoke at an Alabama Republican Leadership Conference which drew jnore than 200 GOP leaders from across tfie state. Callaway, in his first public appearance since, Ford formally announced his inten- ·tfpn 'to run for the office, said there was jio particular significance in his appear- -ance in Alabama. CHICAGO (AP)-President Ford said Saturday he assumes allegations of Central Intelligence Agency infiltration in past administrations will be investigated by the press and Congress. In Washington^ Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said he will ask congressional investigators to find out if CIA agents were planted in the Senate. * * * * * * ;* "THERE WILL BE NO Southern strategy as far as the President's campaign is Iconcerned. The South is a large part of the tey, but is not all of the key to victory," he ·s^id. l-GOP National Chairman Mary Louise 'Smith also told the conference: I -"All we have to do is look at Congress 'under nearly 40 years of Democratic leadership to know that a Democrat in the ;White House is not the answer for Ameri- "0nly strong Republican voices have ;kept the Congress from sinking the nation even further into debt, from creating even bigger government than we already have, from taking away still more of our person$ freedoms. - "We desperately need more Republican yoices in public office -- more men and women who can bring the Republican concept of government to America." iMrs. Smith said one of the party's big challenges in 1976 will be the many local offices up for election. She urged Alabama leaders to "challenge these Democrats who have taken victory for granted." I Callaway and Mrs. Smith both were asked to comment, on a possible Democratic presidentiai.nomination of Alabama Qov. George Wallace. ·Mrs. Smith replied: "That's not my problem." And Callaway said: "There is no question he has a lot of strength. But we're not running against George Wallace alt this time." S. Kore^Orders Ist-Degree Alert After Ship Incident ; SEOUL. South Korea l/P) - One-fifth of ttie armed forces and government agency personnel were ordered on duty throughout the weekend in a special alert after the defense ministry announced that its forces drove a North Korean ship from South Korean waters. .The government gave no reasons Saturday for issuing the first-degree alert, invoked normally when the government says there are imminent signs of war. Leaves for public servants were canceled. !A North Korean vessel came within two rrtiles off Paengyong-Do, the northwestern-most island off the west coast, Saturday and was escorted away by five other North Korean boats after South Korean ghore batteries on the island fired warning shots, the defense ministry said. '. Sunwoo Jin, a ministry spokesman, ac- ciapd North Korea of a "deliberate provocative act' T to test South Korea's alertness in the area. AT A NEWS CONFERERENCE, Ford was asked about reports that the CIA has Seven Quit Grievance Committee had "contact men" at the White House and other agencies. "As far as I know personally, there are no people presently employed in the White House who have a relationship with the CIA, of which I am personally unaware," · Ford said. Ford said allegations that CIA men infiltrated past administrations will be investigated. Asked who would do the investigating, Ford said: "The press, for one, and I assume Congress is looking into these allegations." He said it would be premature to make any comment about Alexander 'Butterfield's relationship with the CIA when he served as a top administrative assistant to former President Nixon. A retired CIA operative has said Butterfield was a "contact officer." * * » WASHINGTON (AP) - Seven members of the Foreign Service Grievance Board have resigned to protest the refusal of the Agency for International Development to follow the board's offer that a laid-off em- ploye be reinstated. Board Chairman William Simkin submitted his resignation and that of the board's six other "public" members to Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. "We take this action unanimously because it is our considered belief that AID's noncompliance with the board order has.. .undermined the present grievance system for the Foreign Service," said Simkin's letter. A State Department spokesman said Saturday the letter, dated July 9, has just been received and "until we have an op- , portunity to review it thoroughly, we have no comment." The action appears to leave the more than 12,000 foreign service employes in the three agencies covered by the board -AID, the State Department and the U.S. Information Agency - without any grievance procedures. At issue is AID's refusal earlier this year to heed a board finding that former AID official William Baumann was laid- off illegally and should be rehired. Baumann was involved in a reduction of AID's work force. Simkin is former director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. Other members who resigned are: Alexander Porter, William R. Tyler, John Gentry, John W. McConnell, Eva Robins and Rolf Vaitin. Influence of Ousted Politician Uncertain BUENOS AIRES, Argentina f/Pi - Many Argentines were skeptical Saturday about the future influence of controversial politician Jose Lopez Rega, despite his dismissal by President Isabel Peron from two key official posts in a reshuffling of her cabinet. "Lopez Rega leaves the cabinet but maintains his predominance," was the headline of the respected financial newspaper El Cronista Comercial. Mrs. Peron, 44, beset last week with a 36-hour general nationwide strike as labor and other leaders demanded she remove the powerful former social welfare minister and presidential secretary, yielded to pressure and formed the new government team Friday. But she included three of Lopez Regf s closest allies in the reconstitnt- ed cabinet MANSFIELD, D-MONT. said he has no evidence that spies have been planted on Capitol Hill, but added that because of allegations that the Central Intelligence Agency had agents in variousgovernment agencies, the possibility of agents in the Senate should be explored "to clear the air." "It is my intention to ask the Select Committee to look into that as far as the Senate is concerned . . . fully. As far as legislative liaison officers here are concerned as well. "As long as certain allegations have been made it is important to look into, the matter fully and clear the air. ' "I hope there have been none up hefe. There are none that I know of," Mansfield said of intelligence agents in Congress.
