They were cosigned by Marvin Mull, chairman of the tribe, and Frank Parez, acting BlA superintendent at. San Carlos. Mull told The Arizona Republic Friday night that it was agreed earlier in the day to hold the order in abeyance pending a meeting next Friday in Phoenix between the Apaches and Reps. Morris K. Udall, D-Ariz.; John B. Conlan, R- Ariz., and Sam Stelger, R-Ariz. Mull said the decision to line the ranchers could be rescinded if an agreement is reached with the congressmen for an extension of the deadline for ranchers to be off the strip. Mull said the letters were mailed be- cause'Udall and Conlan have, failed to meet with the Tribal Council as they promised. "They said that they would get together with the Tribal Council and get the date (for the ranchers to leave the Mineral Strip) extended, but they have not done so," Mull said. "If we do not reach a decision, the fines will be retroactive to 'July 1," he said. Claude House, who has a few head of cattle grazing 6n the 232,000-acre Mineral Strip, said he and other ranchers received ,the registered letters Friday. The. letter said ranchers would be fined $1 a head daily for any livestock found on the land, plus compensation for forage consumed and any property " damage. It told ranchers to disregard reports by newspapers and television which reported the July 1 deadline would be extended up to six months. The congressmen have sought an extension for the ranchers in order to allow for passage-of 'a bill which would compensate them for the loss of any improvements they made on the land while tenants. The bill was approved Wednesday by the House Interior Committee, providing $2.5 million to compensate the ranchers. The bill must still clear the House Rules Committee before going to the floor for debate. . . The bill, if passed by the Hou'Se, would have to go to the Senate and,", If approved, be signed by the President before becoming law. The action to remove the approximately 20-ranchers on the Mineral Strip was begun" earlier this year. It resulted*£rom a 1969 decision by then Interior Secretary Stewart Udall to restore all the strip land to the tribe. Some ranchers have more than 800 head of cattle on the strip. Bombing halt |et Aug. 15 Congress Associated Press /WASHINGTON — President Nixon's compromise offer to halt all U;S. combat activities in Indochina by Aug. 15— unless Congress grants more time — passed Congress Friday night. The Senate accepted a House-passed $3.4 billion supplemental bill that cuts off all past and present funds for combat activities in Cambodia, Laos and North and South Vietnam on that date. The Senate also accepted .the compromise in an amendment to a stopgap spending authority bill. That bill, authorizing the federal government to continue spending past midnight tonight when its current appropriation bills run out, was sent to the House. The House.had adjourned by the time the' Senate ..passed it and will take up the bill today. The Seriate gave the $3.4 billion supplemental bill containing the compromise Congress' final approval 72 to 14. It had passed the stop-gap spending authority containing the compromise 73 to 16. The fight against the compromise was led by an impassioned appeal from Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, who called it a capitulation of Congress' constitutional war-making powers. "If we yield now," added Sen. Edward M, Kennedy, D-Mass., "the blood that is shed between now and Aug. 15 will be on the hands of the Senate." But , bombing opponents including chairman J. W- Fulbright, D-Ark., of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, argued that because of House inability to override the President's veto of an immediate bombing cutoff, the compromise was the only way "to bring to a close this tragic episode, in our history." .Fulbright told the Senate he had won acceptance by the White House of three Foreign Relations Committee guidelines for the compromise: —The Aug. 15 cutoff is not authority for the. President to continue bombing until th ! at time. —"It's effect would be to preclude after Aug. 15 any resumption of hostilities" without Congress' express approval, —The committee expects no escalation of the bombing in Cambodia during the 46 days or resumption of bombing elsewhere in Indochina, In an emotional speech for the compromise, bombing opponent Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, .said Congress never can force a halt to the bombing with a bill the President will not sign. inside STOLEN SECURITIES-A Senate subcommittee was told Friday that the volume of stolen, missing or lost se- 'cwrities in the United States has reached the $50 billion point, Page A-5, STRICKEN TOURISTS - Cruise ship with more than 1,000 diarrhea victims is expected to dock in Miami, Fla., early today.

Chile quells army rebels JL ' »/ in attack on chiefs palace • • • ._. . ...-• . -J^ • ... ; • Associated Press WASHINGTON - Ending a week of dramatic accusations, John W. Dean III told the Senate Watergate committee Friday that "there is a terrible cloud over this government that must be removed so that we can have effective government." Without expressing remorse for having been a central figure in the cover-up, Dean said "it has been most difficult for me because I have had to speak against the President of the United States, some of my friends and former colleagues." He said he attempted to end the cover-up from working within the While House "and when that didn't work I took it upon myself to work from without." Dean was the first witness to involve President Nixon in the cover-up of the break-in of Democratic Party beadquar- ters at the Watergate complex. He said Nixon knew since last Sept. 15, possibly before, of efforts to hide the truth. Dean had been before the committee four times more than any other witness. He stuck fast to his story that he Was at .the center of the cover-up, that he doted with the knowledge and encouragement of his superiors, former chief of -staff H.R. Haldeman and domestic adviser John D. Ehrlichman. Haldeman is scheduled as a witness sometime in July. The committee recessed for the Independence Day holiday until July 10, when it will hear 'from former Attorney General John N. Mitchell, the campaign manager for. the Nixon 1972 re-election campaign at the time of the break-in, June 17, / Dean charged that he was at two meetings with Mitchell in January and February last year when illegal acts were discussed with Jeb Stuart Magruder and G. Gordon Liddy. He said he was not at the third when the plans allegedly were approved by Mitchell. And he said lie communicated everything that;had happened to Haldeman, the rjri.ari who saw the President most Sen. Howard Baker Jr. some of the panel's questions. Chairman S,am J Ervin Jr D-N C. directed' f the cornrrn'ttee stpff to make arrangements Dean's final day of testimony was spent retracking the conversations at which Dean said, he discussed the cover-up' of the Watergate scandal with Nixon. There were suggestions again from committee members that the President should respond to the charges. At the California White House, Press Secretary Ronald. L. Ziegler said;"I don't contemplate. . .the President submitting a sworn statement." Two senators on the committee recalled Friday that Abraham Lincoln had appeared before a congressional committee and that Woodrow Wilson got around the problem of being summoned by inviting committee members to his office. The Senate committee asked Dean "as a major figure in the cover-up" to provide recommendations on legislation to prevent future Watergates. Dean asked that he be permitted .to submit a written statement later. Dean testified that the President's personal secretary, Miss Rosemary Woods, pressed him to keep on top of an income tax case involving a close friend of the President's, described as "up to his ears in tax problems." . .... Dean said she was asking the tax status of the case "because the President was seeing this person a great deal....._ the individual was using the President's name a great deal, he was traveling-. • with the President to China, to Russia and the like." Dean said the man has not been ^indicted yet, but to his knowledge nothing Continued on Page A-14 Water shortage forces El Mirage to cut back By THELMA HEATWOLE Associated Press Associated Press SANTIAGO, Chile - Rebellious soldiers s.u p p o r t e d by tanks machine- gunned the presidential palace Friday. Loyal troops crushed the revolt, restored order under a state of emergency ' and arrested several officers. Seven persons were killed and 22 wounded. Screaming civilians in a morning rush-hour crowd dived for cover. Six of the dead were civilians, the government said. One of four tanks used, by the band of 100 rebel soldiers smashed through the front door at,,the;nearby Defense Ministry with. Us machine guns blazing, President Salvador Allende said later, He addressed a rally in front of the bullet- scarred Moneda Palace. The. .tanks did not use their cannon and withdrew with the troops and a half-dozen personnel carriers to a garrison in this city of 2V'z million persons after a battle of several hours, The government said a majority of the rebels surrendered. The Marxist president said civilians members of the extreme right-wing "Fatherland and Liberty" organization were involved in the abortive uprising. He said officers who Jed the rebellion were arrested and the civilian participants "are now knocking on the doors of embassies, trying'to flee the country." He identified the ringleader as a Col. Souper. The debels were members of the 900-man 2nd Armored Regiment, the government said. Allende, who was not in the palace at the time of the swift attack, did not indicate if the revolt was an attempted coup. The tiny .band of rebels'apparently got no support from the rest of Chile's 23,000-man army. Prime Minister Fidel Castro .of Cuba messaged his congratulations to Allende "for the rapid victory against the reactionary blow..." The presidents of Argentina and Mexico also messaged their congratulations. to Allende, the first Marxist in the world to be democratically elected to lead a nation. - The entire country was put under a state of emergency and a nighttime curfew was imposed in the Santiago province. Such controls have become familiar to Chileans in the last three years because Continued on Page A-2 •'"; He admitted being involved in procuring money to keep the Watergate defendants quiet,, of prompting Magruder to commit perjury and of taking $4,850 of committee funds to finance his honeymoon—money that he said he later returned. • Dean underwent close questioning particularly by Sen. Edward J. Gurney, R- Fla., and questions submitted by the White House and read by Sen. Daniel K, Inouye, D-Hawaii. He enlisted the Senate committee's help for prying his files from the White House and indicated fears they may be destroyed, "I would hope the committee would put the White House on notice or they may not be there when I get there," the former presidential lawyer said after testifying he needs the files to answer EL MIRAGE' - Town officials, because of a critical water shortage, have asked residents to restrict use'. The conservation, affects 3,800 persons here and another 3,000 in. Surprise, who get their water from the Town of £1 Mirage. The shortage, which has occurred in past summers/was so acute Thursday night that townspeople were reported to have run out of water in preparing suppers and used buckets to borrow from areas where there was water, Wednesday evening several homes in northwest El Mirage reported they were entirely out of water for two or three hours. . El Mirage and Surprise police Thursday night went.from house to house in the two communities asking citizens to conserve, Town Manager Nelson Payne said that a private well producing 350 gallons per minute was expected to be tied into the system by .Friday night to bolster the dwindling supply. . "But it will still be nip and luck'.all' summer long," he said. Payne said the use of more water than the town -can produce causes the shortage. He said the duration of the emergency 'Would depend on the cooperation" of citizens and the buildup of water' storage. • Demonstrating the concern of his,,; neighboring town, Surprise Councilman 1 Ernest Scritchfield produced a pitcher of rust-colored water and cups at the-El- Mirage Town Council meeting Thursday,; He served the water which, he said, was drawn from the tap in his home. Payne said the reddish brown color.; was due to iron pipes, County health- officials were here Friday looking into the water problem.

But knowing You guide us through life. 0 Lord, enables ine to temper my impatience. Amen. By DON BQLLES An Arizona State Prison guard met a bloody death because he was just given a book and told to learn his job by trial and error, his brother charged Friday. William P. Buckley, deputy district attorney in Denver, Colo., was in Phoenix to move his dead brother's family and possessions from Florence to Denver. He spoke bitterly of the death eight days ago of his younger brother, Ted J. Buckley, 26, during an inmate uprising in Cellblock 3. Buckley was stabbed to death in a first-floor shower room after fellow guard Dale Morey, 37, was fatally clubbed, stabbed and thrown one flight down a stairwell. "As a prosecutor, I've seen a lot of murder scenes," said Buckley, who went to Cellblock 3 last Saturday. "This looked like a massacre. There was blood on every inch of the wall and floor." Buckley said his own investigation showed Morey, because of lack of training, made a fatal mistake. When a convict set a cell on fire, Morey left his guard station and entered the cell, where he was jumped, instead of passing a hose through bars to the inmate, Buckley said. Buckley also questioned the 2 1 /t-hour delay in regaining control of the celib. lock. The inmates had claimed they would hurt the already mortally wounded guards if prison officials attacked, but Buckley said the officials made no attempts to confirm the guards were alive then. "My brother was still alive when they reached him, and died from loss of blood," Buckley said. "Who knows if he could have been saved if they had got there earlier?" Dwight Carey, new chief of security at the prison, said all new guards undergo 3 period of training before they are placed in the cellblocks or yard. He would not comment on whether Morey violated standard procedure or whether officials asked to see the guards before they entered the cellblock. "This involves elements of the criminal case being prepared against those charged in connection with the guards' deaths and it would be improper for me to talk about them at this time," Carey said. "These questions will have to wait." From Buckley emerged a picture of a hard-working brother, devoted to his Korean wife, Sun, and three children, ages 4, 3 and 2. Buckley took the prison job after 5'i years in the Army, while waiting for a police job, the brother said. "He seemed to be proud of his job, but,also afraid of it in some respects," -,<. Buckley said. "In his six months there, Continued on Page A-4 William P. Buckley I
