3 U.S. Agencies Enter Land Fight WASHINGTON (AP) — Three federal agencies spoke in opposition Thursday to legislation designed to settle disputed land claims along the Snake River in southeastern Idaho-. The Justice Department, with the support of the Agriculture and Interior Departments, instead proposed its own version of a bill allowing citizens to sue the government for clear title to land they occupy. In testimony before a Senate Interior subcommittee, ' Shiro Kashiwa, a Justice Department official, criticized three bills introduced by Idaho Sens. Frank Church and Len B. Jordan as being too broad in application i-nfl * i 1^/«vViT>n- *ar?ofm2to cafft-l guards to protect the public interest." The Secretary of Interior should be permitted to retain the land and reimburse owners after 'litigation, -he said, or sell it at fair market value rather than the $1.25-an-acre token payment proposed in the Church-Jordan legislation. At issue is ownership of about 15,000 acres of omitted lands along the Snake River between St. Anthony and Idaho Falls. The government resurveyed the land in-1965 and determined that an 1880 survey was in "gross error" in measuring between the river's meander line and "lacking adequate safe-j- and the water's edge. 1,600 Utah Workers Join Strike PRICE, Utah (UPI) — Hundreds of Utah workers today joined strike. the nationwide c o"S 1 38 SALES The government consequently claimed the land as its own, and has conducted 38 sales of a total of 1,950 acres. All but five sales were made to preferential land holders. Declaring that legal precedents determine how the land dispute should be' handled, Kashiwa said: "We're just trying to enforce the law." • Jordan responded: " We're j just trying to rewrite that lawj to mete out a little justice." Church added: "You ought not come in and quote the law. We're trying to change the Believe R or Not/ \ > Ti. * I. "" V * ' - ' .

The senators contended that government surveyors made the error but that property buyers who developed the land and erected buildings on it are being made to pay for the mistake. WALLET OF BREADMAN KILLED IN ROBBERY FOUND ON OVERPASS SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The wallet and checkbook belonging to a bread delivery man murdered during a Salt Lake robbery last month have been found^on a highway overpass. • The Salt Lake County sheriff's office sent the items to trie FBI laboratories in Washington for analysis.' Michael P. Brown, 22, of Woods Cross, was shot and killed Sept. 2 while delivering bread at Natters Market jn Salt Lake City. . . A woman clerk, Carolyn Kingston, 32, remains in serious condition after also being shot in the head. ' _ Sheriff's Capt. N.D.-Hayward said the discovery of the wallet and checkbook was further proof for this theory that the killer was passing through Salt Lake City and stopped long enough to rob the store. - • _ IN WAKE OF 6 DEATHS ; "No picketing.

Bailey, 29, and Joe Conquest, • his hunting partner, were stranded in a blizzard last November when they took the wrong road and their truck stalled on a deer hunting expedition. After spending nearly a month in the truck, Bailey began a 25-day hike through one of America's most rugged wilderness areas, finally stumbling into a ranch near Sun Valley Jan..20. His partner, whose'feet were ' frozen, >was later .found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the pair's truck. Bailey said he didn't plan'to take any special precautions this year, other than "take the right road." He said he and his parents would hunt in the same mountainous area he .and Conquest were headed toward last year. The only injury Bailey • suffered during his ordeal was a frostbitten- foot. "My foot is just fine now, but it does bother me when I get cold," he said. . VICTIM OF NUCLEAR AGE?

One of the officers was sheriff's narcotics agent Joe Gee who was the target of an assassination attempt Tuesday. birds for 18 years from the Western United States to the Arctic. Dr. White was involved last year in the first in-depth study of 'peregrine falcons in the Aleutians. This was in connection with the planned detonation of a five-megaton nuclear weapon test, known as "Cannikin," scheduled in early October on the Alaskan island, of Amchit- ka. The bomb test has caused ecologists and zoologists great concern as to the damage which will result to wildlife. . But it is not the bomb that worries Dr. White. RARE SPECIES "Radiation is really at very minor consequence, as the shot will be contained underground," he said. "It is the concentration of chemicals which are not i breaking down in the environment which caused Jhe peregrine falcon's death. "It is now considered one of the rare and endangered sps- cies." He explained that chlorinated hydrocarbons cause thinning of the eggshells which results in] breakage or the improper cx-| change of leases across the I shell, and the. young die in j either case. i Another problem is-that these' the adult birds return to nesting sites but merely loaf around the cliff. They make a slight attempt to buildi a,nest but nothing more, as they have lost the desire to breed. Dr. White's specialty includes avian biosysl^matics and evolution, ecology of raptorial birds, and problems of environmental pollution. He commented that the falcon is just one of the species which have been drastically affected by pollution, and its decline tells us there is something seriously amiss about^ us^ The evidence all ""*' i " '" manipulation merit. THEY DISAPPEAR The decline of the peregrine falcon .was first noticed in England around 1958. In 1960, Dr. Whita observed that the falcons had disap- points to mail's of the • environ- I peared from me Wasatch Front in Utah, where they formerly nested in a density of one pair to every eight miles frpri Springville to Brigham City. They fed on, the birds in the marshes that occur along Great Salt Lake. Since the British banned the use of certain harmful chemicals in 1965, the peregrine falcon has returned to its old nesting sites. And, if the chemicals continue to be flushed from the environment, the falcon should become plentiful in England again, Dr. White said.
