RAPID CITY, S.D. (UPI)Gov. William G. Milliken of Michigan Sunday urged the federal government to delay a final decision on the trans- Alaskan oil pipeline in favor of the trans-Canadian pipeline because the oil is needed most "east of the Rockies." "The Canadian route would deliver the bulk of the North Slope oil reserves where they are needed most, east of the Rockies," Milliken, a Republican, said on the eve of the three-day Midwestern Governors Conference which begins here today. Milliken said the North Slope Alaskan oil will help solve the nation's energy shortage but he added the trans-Canadian pipe would allow the oil to be delivered to the Midwest with less environmental damage and at a better price than the proposed trans-Alaskan pipeline. "The trans-Canadian pipeline would deliver relatively less ex* pensive crude oil to the Mid* west, while the trans-Alaskan pipeline would route the oil by pipeline and tanker through Se­ attle, Wash., and other north* west coastal transfer points in a way that would increase the Midwestern price," Milliken said. . Milliken said a feasibility study of the trans*Ataskan pipe* line should be conducted and that Secretary of State William Rogers should meet with Cana­ dian officials to determine that government's attitude toward a trans-Canadian route for the pipeline. U.S. senators were to vote this week on the Mondale*Bayh amendment, which would delay construction of the proposed trans-Alaskan pipeline for up to 14 months while Congress United Auto Workers Presi* dent Leonard Woodcock also came out in support Sunday of the Mondale-Bayh amendment saying it was "a sound bi* partisan solution to the energy crisis. » Board Mulls Money's Use At Woodhiill WOODHULL — Possible uses lor federal revenue (Sharing funds received by the Village of WooidhuM were discussed by members of the Viiage Board of Trustees during a meeting here July 2.

IllllUllillllJilllll III! •fig Women'8 Groups Protest Spending for Sterilization WASHINGTON (UP1)- Fourteen women's religious and population control organizations, most of them supporters of family planning and birth control, today called for an end of spending of funds or sterilizing minors. "We deplore the recent incidents of sterilization, an irreversible operation, of teen* age girls in Montgomery County, Alabama," the groups said. Noting that the issues in­ volved in the sterilization incidents were now before the courts, the groups said that "it is clear that neither federal nor state law and regulations took adequate cognizance of the difficult issues involved..." The Alabama case thrust the issue into prominence when the father of two teen-age black girls filed a $1 million damage suit against the government for the alleged involuntary sterilization of his daughters.

(UPI) — State police gave feisty Robert H. Simpson, dean of the state Capitol protesters, just what he wanted for his 93rd birthday. They arrested him for the 234tih time Sunday. After a cup of coffee at the county jail, Simpson was released and returned to the Capitol rotunda to share a birthday cake with bemused tourists and enjoy a kiss from Catherine Van Dyke of Hau- burg, N.Y. "Give me a scrap and I'll be happy forever," said Simpson, Who makes it a point to be arrested feir picketing in the Cat>iitol. The airrests have occurred so often that a Capitol policeman once said, "it's like taking the caii out at night. It's something that has to be done." To Simpson, his job is to protect the people's right to complain. "Complaining is the first of your rights and you should preserve it. When you oan't complain, you're lost," he said. Reagan Favorite Target Simpson has prowled Capitol corridors since 1966 with his portable walking chair, provoking the legislature to pass a law banning his activities. The red-lettered signs of the native of Ireland—a former amateur boxer, Methodist minister and Salvation Army major —denounce officials from Presi dent Nixon on down. But Simpson's favorite target is California Gov. Ronald Reagan. "Impeach Reagan," reads one of the old man's signs.

Mrs. Van Dyke, who happened along as the festivities began, cut the oake and gave slices to curious tourists. Official Praises Simpson Some warily eyed the Wispy old man, but Simpson didn't care. "I never stop because of what people think. I just do my job," he said. Simpson's 234 arrests, by his own count, have become nearly ritualized. He is taken into custody, escorted to jail and then released. Once Simpson was brought to trial and sentenced to 60 days in jail. The sentence has never been carried out.
