A# Altbn Evening Telegraph Tuesday, Jan. 12, 1971 To sm>e non-Indians monev Indians deprived of U.S. funds By AUSTIN SCOTT WASHINGTON (AP) Hate and local school officials have misused millions of federal dollars earmarked for the education of impoverished Indian children, two prominent legal groups charged today. In a study covering 60 school districts in eight states, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Harvard Center for Law and Education said the money was used "for every conceivable school system need except the need that Congress had in mind." The study said money intended for Indians was used to buy "fancy equipment" ,for white students and for general operating expenses "to reduce taxes for non-Indian property owners." The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs encouraged such practices the study said, by looking the other way when districts misused funds, and then granting them extra Indian student money to replace what they'd misused. The 162 - page report, compiled by a 32-member task force, 27 of whom were Indians, cited no figures on misused funds. Rut Phyllis McClure. Washington representative of the Legal Defense Fund, said the funds misused added up to "more than 50 per cent" of the approximately $66 million in Simon tagged (Continued from Page One) the resolution despite a brief standoff by Republicans. Five republicans, including Minority Leader W. Russell Arrington were not in their chairs when the roll was called. The ilew rules give Democrats an eight to five edge in appointing key committees. Last year, Republicans enjoyed a 2 to 1 majority on most committees, including a 10 to 5 plurality on committees which formulates standing committees and selects their members. The rules resolution will also cut lengthy oratory during roll call, reducing from 15 minutes to 3 minutes, the time for a senator to explain his vote. Senator Terrel E. Clarke, Republican assistant minority leader said the Republican leadership has viewed the Democrat revision of the rules as "an attempt to monopolize the legislative process and impose a legislative body by an executive officer." "The committee system is crucial to the effective perform a n c e of legislative responsibilities. The Democrats attempt to create a monopoly over the legislative process, despite an even division in the body, is an ill omen for future bl- Man tound dead with gun in arms Forty«six-year-old Mathias Henry Kiel of 615 Winkler Street, was found dead outside his residence Monday morning. A .410 gauge shotgun was clutched in his arms police said. The former Hardin resident had been despondent for some time, according to police, and had been living with relatives in Alton. partisan cooperation," Clarke said. Clarke's words were not as bitter as those of Sen. Hudson Sours, R-Pcoria, who exclaimed to the entire Senate, "there are times that I would rather shout down a sewer than to address my fellow senators." Sours then got into a verbal bout with Sen. William "Bill" Lyons, T)-Gillcspie, after the Peoria Republican implied he was going to tell "Sweeney all about lien- dloman." "Sweeney" apparently is the equivalent to "the judge" or some authoralive source in Sours' repertoire. Lyons argued that. Sours was out. of order and that Rendleman's name was n o t relevant to the Senate debate. Sours retorted: "I would think that discretion would be the great control over your wild ganderings, Senator — it will take six years to build your bridge." Sours reference to Hcn- dleman was in connection with John Rendlcman, executor of the Paul Powell estate, who has come under fire from the Republican administration and attorney general for the way ho has handled the assets of the late secretary of state. The remarks about the bridge were in connection with Lyon's legislation to build a bridge over the Illinois River linking Graflon and Brussels. Sours sharp words Monday marked the second time in as many weeks he has involved personalities in tirades against Democrats. Last week he was ruled out Of order when he unleashed a verabal attack against Simon, calling the lieutenant, governor a friend of the patronage system. Some of Sours fellow Republicans who mark him as a rebel, have indicated quietly that they will not .subscribe to his tactics. K is doubtful, however, that even ihc minority leadership will attempt to muffle the outspoken Peoria Republican. special federal funds for the 1969-70 school year. The report focused on districts in Arizona. New Mexico, North anrl South Dakota, and also touched on Now York. Oregon, Oklahoma and Montana. "Ry every standard, Indians receive thr worst education of any children in the country." the report said. "They attend shabby, overcrowded public schools which lack even basic resources" it added, with many learners openly disrespectful of Indian heritage and culture.

Confusion resulted when two water board members, Wilbur Bean and Robert House, disclaimed knowledge of the suit prior to summonses being served on the defendants last Tuesday night. No minutes of the water board are available prior to Oct. 20 so thai it is impossible to ascertain when and if the water board took such authorized filing of the suit and expenditure of funds for legal fees.

This includes money for hooks, school supplies, lunches, transportation, guidance counseling, and athletic and other school fees. —In large districts where Indian children are concentrated in a few schools, the differences in the quality of buildings, supplies and education "are so obvious as to lead to the inescapable conclusion lhat Indian children are not receiving an equal share of anything." —Money from the .Tohnson- O'-Malley Act. a 1934 law setting aside special funds for Indian children only, "continues to be used in lieu of taxes" to meet general opera) ing costs.

Brazil demands sijmed note o from kidnaped Swiss envoy By (Jcorge Hawrylyshyn RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Apparently to win time for last-minute maneuvering, the Bra/Mian government has demanded a note signed t>y the kidnaped Swiss ambassador before flying 70 prisoners to Chile as his ransom. A month of negotiations ended late Monday when the government announced it would exchange the prisoner for Ambassador Giovanni Enrico Bucher, and the Chilean government said it, would grant them asylum. However, the Brazilian government, demanded another note from the Popular Revolutionary Vanguard, over Bucher's signature, that he would be released as soon as the prisoners' arrival in Chile was confirmed. Since several similar notes already had been received, the military regime was believed stalling so that doctors could put together a medical record prisoners were showing the not tortured while confined. Government, sources said they were undergoing "rigorous medical examinations." Sixty prisoners released as ransom for Brazils' three previous victims of political kid- napings gained worldwide publicity with stories of torture by the Brazilian authorities. Dozens of prisoners were brought to Rio de Janeiro from outlying districts and their release was expected Monday night; then the government demanded the additional note. The Vanguard kidnaped Buchcr on Dec. 7 and demanded that 70 persons be flown to Chile or elsewhere, that, a revolutionary manifesto be published and that free passage be given on Hio's suburban trains during negotiations. The government, denied the last two demands and rejected three previous lists of persons to be set free before agreement, was reached. One of the largest manhunts in Rio's history has been under way since Bucher was kidnaped, apparently with no results. But sources said that even if the police found the terrorists' hideout before the exchange, they probably wouldn't raid it because the terrorists threatened to kill Bucher if the police found him. U.S. jet strikes taret in north By GEORGE ESPER SAIGON (AP) — The U.S. Command announced today that a second U.S. plane made a "protective reaction" air attack inside North Vietnam last Friday. A spokesman said the Shrike missile fired by the American fighter-bomber missed the enemy antiaircraft missile site on the coast and landed in the sea. The air strike 110 miles north of the demilitarized zone was made after the m is s i 1 e launcher's radar began tracking an unarmed Navy reconnaissance jet and the A4 fighter-bomber escorting it, the spokesman said. The U.S. Command considers this a hostile action, the spokesman explained, since once the radar locks onto an aircraft it is in position to fire and thus poses a threat. The spokesman said the North Vietnamese did not fire, but the attack by the American fighter-bomber was the exercise of the "inherent right of self-defense." The U.S. Command ofl Saturday announced another "protective reaction" strike last Friday, by an Air Force F105 fighter-bomber escorting B52 bombers on a mission along the North Vietnamese- Laotian border. The command said the F105 fired two Shrike missiles at a SAM site in the Mu Gia pass region after the enemy's radar began tracking the U.S. planes. There has been no report that those Shrikes hit the target either. In ground combat, South Vietnamese headquarters claimed its forces killed 78 North Vietnamese in sharp fighting on both sides of the Cambodian border. Field reports said seven South Vietnamese were killed and 18 wounded. A small U.S. Marine patrol of less than 10 men beat back an attack by 50 Viet Cong 20 miles south of Da Nang, killing 15 with the help of air strikes, a spokesman said. One Marine was wounded.

(AP Wire- photo) PowelFs cash Telegraph editor says some errors justified Park (Continued from Page One) Dwiggins as park and recreation director because each man has a full job being in direct charge of his particular program. Ghent, he said, would have more time to devote to supervising the programs, as well as being in charge of the n e w city engineer a n d the building inspector, Wally Simmons. "Some criticism of the Telegraph is justified because we do make mistakes," Editor Stephen A. Cousley told the Alton Rotary Club Monday night. "With 185 people participating in publishing a newspaper 308 times a year, writing and printing more than 75,000 words each day, our product can make no pretense to perfection." "We do make mistakes but we try to minimize them," he added. He described the setup of the Telegraph's news gathering staff. The daily newspaper is the only product in the world that is completely manufactured from scratch and then destroyed the same day — even less than a day, he said, from about 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. press time. The newspaper is "written and edited under incredible pressure of time, so it's a miracle we don't make more mistakes than we do. Have you ever wondered in this era of big government which has such control over the lives of every one. . . if the journalist does not look after the rights of the individual and the public, and give voice who will? Who else is there?" (Continued from Page One) 3216 Carlson in Bellemore Village, Granite City, Hodge strongly denied to the Telegraph that his friend Powell ever gave him money, and added that he was never visited by the Secretary of State in Madison. Hodge said he welcomed an investigation into his association with Powell. "If I had any money, I would not be working," Hodge said, irritated by the latest in a stream of questions about the Powell affair. Hodge told' the Telegraph that he works part time. as a rent collector and a payment collector for a housing project in the leadbelt mine area of Vibernon, Mo. Hodge has spent lavishly in night clubs and fine restaurants, the Telegraph learned. Vibernon is a new town which has sprung up in the Lead Belt area as the result of finds of new lead and iron ore. Granite City Steel has built a new plant there, Hodge said. "I have suffered enough over what happened years ago,' 1 Hodge told the Telegraph. "My wife is a nervous wreck over this new thing." Speaking calmly, Hodge told the Telegraph: "They (public) never 1 e t you forget it. You're a second class citizen all the time." "Why do they have to revive the past all the time?" Hodge asked. Illinois draft call SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP) Dean Sweet, director of the Illinois Selective Service system, announced Monday a February draft call of 1,338 for the state. The national draft call for this month is 17,000, the same as last month. The state call in January was 1,224. The board of education of Alton "School District 11 will begin an immediate inquiry into the dangerous Gerson- Beltline' crossing which has stirred the anger of parents over the threat to children walking across the highway. "We will begin an immediate study of the crossing and then proceed with a course of action to protect the children," Dr. David Bear, s c'h o o 1 board president, declared Monday night. Dr. Bear addressed his remarks for a solution to a group of parents who gathered at the school board meeting and demanded action from board members to prevent children from being killed or injured. A letter was also read at the meeting from Godfrey Supervisor Dale V. Kennedy who appealed to the school board for "positive action" to protect school children. "It is your responsibility," a spokesman for the parents declared in urging the school board to help eliminate the dangers to the children. The seven members of the school board will meet Friday as a committee to study various alternatives for protection at the Gerson- Beltline crossing. Nick Maggos, president of Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. announced that he will make a $5,000 donation toward a traffic signal at the crossing. Mothers have picketed the hazardous stretch of highway in a dramatic appeal to el i m i n a t e dangers to schoolchildren crossing the four lane. BONUS EAGLE STAMPS FOB SAVING MONEY...
