Indians d eviction of rancher cattle An order by the Bureau of Indian Affairs that ranchers on the San Carlos Mineral Strip remove their cattle by. Sunday or face fines will be held in abeyance until Friday,' it has been learned. The order was contained in registered letters received Friday by ranchers who have cattle on the Mineral Strip in eastern Arizona. The letters concerning the Indian- owned strip were sent from the BIA agency office in San Carlos and were cosigried by Marvin Mull, chairman of the San, Carlos Apache Tribe, and the acting BIA 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 Mull said the decision to fine the ranchers could be rescinded if an agreement is reached with the congressmen for an extension of the deadline for ranchers to be off the strip.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, sent by Superintendent Frank Parcz of the San Carlos BIA agency with Mull's Concurrence, were mailed because Udall and Conlan had not met with the Tribal Council as they had promised. "Tliey 1 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 on 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 Mouse, would have to go to the Senate and,'ff approved, be signed by the President before Becoming law. The action to remove the approximately 20 ranchers on the Mineral Stfip was begun earlier this year. It resulted from a 1969 decision by then Interior Secretary Stewart Udall to restore all the strip land to the tribe.

The President promised to sign the post-Aug. 15 war fund cutoff, Ford said, but. said he would veto any earlier cutoff of ,war funds. "Apparently the White . House believes that there is a possibility a settlement can be reached; between now and Aug. 15 at the negotiating table," Ford said. But bprnbint; opponents including Rep. Robert N.

The military imposed a curfew on Santiago province after the band of about '100 rebel soldiers and four tanks were driven back. , Marxist President Salvador Allende said "pockets of civilians" participated in the uprising.

The first assault came during the morning rush hour in downtown Santiago shortly before 9 a.m. Allende announced in a broadcast before noon that the insurrection was put down and that a majority of the rebel soldiers had surrendered. The few dozen members of the 900- man 2nd Armored Regiment were reported to have taken part in the uprising. They brought four tanks up to the doors of La Moneda Palace but the tanks' guns were not fired. Machine guns opened up on the palace guard. Allende was not there at the time.

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 saicl "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 White House "and when that didn't work I took it upon myself to work froni without." Dean was the first-witness to involve President Nixon in the cover-up of the break-in of Democratic Party headquarters . 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 acted 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're- cessed 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 he communicated everything that had happened to Haldeman, the man who saw the President most often. . He admitted being involved in procuring money Co 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 Sen. Howard Baker Jr. some of the panel's questions. Chairman Sam J. Ervin Jr. D-N.C. directed the committee staff to make arrangements. Dean's final day of testimony was spent repacking the conversations at which Dean said he discussed the cover-up of the Watergate scandal with Nixon. • There were suggestions again from committee members (hat. Hie President should respond to the charges. At. the California White House, Presg 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 star.? tus 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-1J Water shortage forces El Mirage to cut back By THELMA HEATWOLE EL MIRAGE - Town officials, because of a critical water shortage, have asked residents to restrict their use of water to domestic purposes.. system by Friday night to bolster the dwindling supply. The conservation affects 3,800 persons here and another 3,000 in Surprise, who get, their water from the Town of" El 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 "But it will still be nip and tuck all summer long," he said.

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 clays ago of his younger brother, Ted J. Buckley, 26, during an inmate uprising in Cellblock 3. Buckley was slabbed to death in a first-floor shower room after fellow guard Dale Marey, 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 sh'owed 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'/i-hour delay in regaining control of the cellblock. 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 a period of training before they are placed in the cellbjocks or yard. He would not comment on whether Morey violated standard procedure or whether officials asked to s'ee 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 bVz 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
