The Arctic Slope Native Association filed the suit • in U.S. District Court here Tuesday, against Secretary ..of the Interior Rogers C. B. Morton and other officials of the Interior Department. The _suit charges that the state government's selection of North Slope lands in 1964 under the Alaska Statehood Act violated clauses protecting native valid and in violation of Section 6 of the Alaska Statehood Act for the land leased or sold was not' vacant, unappropriated, or unreserved' as required by that section." "For as far back as anyone knows, the plaintiff Eskimo people have occupied, used and exercised dominion over the entire Arctic Slope Region of Alaska," the suit claimed, adding that "at the very least, the plair.tiffs have what is - known rights. The Interior secretary s approval of the selection violated the constitutional requirement of due process of law, the Eskimos charged. ALL HELD INVALID their suit said, sales, conditional "Finally," "all leases, leases and made under conditional sales the authority of as aboriginal title The effort of seven oil companies to build an 800-mile pipeline from the North Slope oil fields to a seaport on Alaska's southern coast has been stalled for more than a year by a lawsuit filed by conservationists. The Eskimos' suit makes no mention of that $2.5 billion project but could cast doubt not only on the pipeline but on the ownership of the entire 56.5 million acres of land north of the Brooks Range of mountains and all the North Slope oil. DESEGREGATION BILL them. Five Continued From First Pag« Nixon's August edict dismayed _.„ school superintendents from the North and South testified before another Senate committee today that they desperately need money to support busing. VOICE VOTE One of them. Savannah, Ga., Supt. Thord M. Marshall, also said Nixon's August statement made many residents unwilling to vote for extra funds to support busing because they thought the President "meant that there should be no busing for the purpose of promating desegregation." The President's proposal was offered by Rep. John M. Ash- he senior committee Republican and formerly a supporter of administration busing policy, ed the - fight against both amendments. "It is ridiculous for the federal government and the courts io require school districts to desegregate and then refuse to help them pay for their busing costs," said Quie. Rep. James G. O'Hara, .D- Mich., another Michigan Democrat, William D. Ford, and Rep. Mario Biaggi, D-N.Y., cast the three votes against the bill.- • O'Hara and Ford had caused most of the delay in committee action by the use of parliamentary tactics. They said the bill favors Southern and big-city schools when all NO WORD Continued From First Pag« day, with 100,000 miners off the job. Secretary of Labor James D. Hodgson told top union -and coal-industry negotiators Tuesday he is concerned "over reports the parties had been unable to reach agreement because of questions involved _in the government's wage-stabilization efforts. ."I advised the'parties that the government did not consider that an acceptable re_ason — especially in a key industry such as coal and mining." Hodgson said 200 other agreements have been reached during the wage-price freeze. The United Mine Workers and the Bituminous Coal Operators Association .-said they were resuming negotiations immediately. The union seeks a $13 increase in the top daily wage of $37. GUARANTEED WORK Issues in the West Coast dock strike are demands by the independent International Longshoremen's ' and Warehousemen's Union over off-dock container jurisdiction, a guaranteed work week and wages anc benefits. In the East, the AFL-CIO International Longshoremen's Association seeks extension ir present form of a guaranteed annual income from New York to other East and Gulf ports. Nixon's executive order was extended Tuesday to cover the International Association of Machinists, and Aerospace Workers, District Lodge 94 and Local Lodge 1484. Officials in California, Washington, Oregon and Hawaii estimate the West Coast strike, which began July 1, has cost at least $.17 billion in lost wages and sales. The East-Gulf strike means payroll loss of at least $8 million a week for the 45,000 longshoremen on strike. Shippers Compromise Consumer Bill Offered WASHINGTON • (AP) — The 1 due*"author." of the proposed consumer protection, act .of 1971; apparently-picking up support' on the House Rules Committee that killed similar legislation last year; says he has •written "a middle-of-the-road bill." . It is "not what the ; extreme right wants,-and not what the extreme left wants," Government operations Committee Chairman Chet Holified, D-Calif., said Tuesday as he urged the Rules Committee to approve the bill for floor action by next week. , "I'm willing to test this bill on the floor and let the members decide," Holifield added while calling for a so-called "open" rule governing floor debate—meaning the legislation would be open to amendment, DEFENDED PROPOSAL Holifield defended the. legislation which has been : attacked by consumer advocate Ralph Nader.' The Government Operations Committee, which approved the measure last week by 24 to 4, "tried to take into account every valid objection,' Holifield said. Rep. James H. Quillen. R Tenn., told Holifield: "I didn QUEENIE By Phil Interlandi THE WEATHER TODAY support the last bill but this one sounds real good to me." The Rules Committee ar ranged to take testimony todaj "rom congressmen who want t< •evise the legislation. /The bill would create, an inde pendent governmental agency as an "action unit for the ad vocacy and advancement o cosumer interests before th< many agencies of governmen mvolved in one way or anothe in consumer affairs," Holifiel* The committee estimated th cost of this three-way system would be $38.8 million during' the first five years of opera tion.

NEW YORK (AP) — The federal government says its 10- month court fight to stop the General Motors Corp. from polluting the Hudson River has been one of the "most successful enforcement proceedings" .n the .history of environmental „„„.. U.S. Attorney Michael D. Hess told U.S. District Court Judge Constance Motley Baker that the giant ; auto maker was making a "significant albeit tardy" effort to stop pollution and that'no further action appeared necessary. The civil litigation began Dec. 15, 1970 with the filing of a suit that resulted in a court injunction and a set of guide dates for cleaning up pollution of the Hudson from the GM assembly plant at North Tarrytown, N.Y. NATIONAL ATTENTION 'The case has attracted nationwide attention because the defendant is the largest corporation in America, because the Hudson River is one of the nation's "great waterways and-because of the number of irresponsible charges publicity-seeking iwith regard to leveled by opportunists the government's enforcement procedures,' Hess said Tuesday. The use of civil instead of matter of controversy .."last; January when the prosecutor^ who handled the case, Asst; U.S. Attorney John M. Burns III, left the Justice Department. '•'''- ' ••"•. Burns charged he was fired' and claimed that Washington' intervention prevented more vigorous prosecution of the case. U.S. • Attorney Whitney North Seymour Jr. said Burns had resigned and denied Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell had- barred criminal action against GM. CLEAN UP WATER „•; Hess told Judge Motley fh£ decision to use civil litigation was based on GM's willingness to undertake a nationwide program of pollution control. "The goal was not to seek vengeance but to clean up the nation's water." he said. Judge Motley continued the case until Nov. 15 in order to examine tha results of 30 days of testing at the North Tarrytown Plant. $10 Million Fund TEL AVIV (AP) — A $10 million educational fund to aid the underprivileged has been estab-' lished by the American Friends of the Hebrew University and- .37 criminal proceedings became a TAX CUT Continued From First Page light trucks, and provide a spe cial tax break for exporters.

Nixon's no-busing amendment and an attempt by O'Hara to preserve neighborhood schools will be the chief sources of controversy when the bill reaches the House floor. Meanwhile, 10 congressmen, who have supported past attempts at drawing up a constitutional amendment prohibit- ig busing, say they have agreed to support a single proposal to that effect. The 10 said in a news conference Tuesday they will stand behind an amendment proposed by Rep. Norman F.
