Claude House, who said he has only a few cattle grazing on the 232,000-acre strip, said he and other ranchers with cattle on the Strip received registered letters from the Bureau of Indian Affairs Friday ordering their cattle off the strip by July 1. The letter, sent from the BIA in San Carlos and eosigned by the acting superintendent of the BIA and San Carlos Apache. Tribal Chairman Marvin Mull, said ranchers would be fined for arty livestock found on the reservation and would be assessed for all property damage costs. The letter told the ranchers to disregard the reports of television and newspaper that said the July 1 deadline would be extended up to six months* John Artichoker, head of the Phoenix area BIA, had no comment on the letter. The BIA in San Carlos had no one available for comment; • ' House said, "It's impossible to get the cattle out. of the Strip by Sunday. In fact, it could take up to a year and a half. Some ranchers have over 800 head there." . "It's too hot to move the cattle now" he continued. "And where are you going 1 to get enough cowboys to do it? Even if you had cowboys, you really couldn't do it." House said he talked with other ranch* ers and "they don't know-what to do yet." For awhile it seemed the issue was almost settled, Besides giving ranchers an extension for getting their cattle off the range, a bill was approved in June by the House public lands subcommittee to compensate the ranchers for their hardship. The bill must clear the full committee before going to the House floor for approval. It then would have to be passed by the Senate and signed bythePresi- , dent to become law. "We're certainly on the road now toward an equitable solution for both our Indian friends and Arizona' ranchers, whose life's investment has been threatened by the past mistakes of federal bureaucrats," Rep. John Conlan, R* Ariz., said at the time. The action to get the ranchers off the land resulted from a decision in 1969 when then Interior Secretary Stewart Udall restored allu ndisposed-of lands in the Mineral Strip to the tribe. House accepts . 15 cutoff im war funds Associated Press , ^WASHINGTON — The House accepted ;^White House compromise Friday on federal spending and Indochina war funding that would cut. off all Indochina mili- ,tar,jf operations by Aug. 15. " "r&y^ passing the amended $3.4-billion Suppjemental money bill, the House softened "the head-on clash between Congress antf the President over the war. The .bill, previously vetoed by Nixon, now goes to the Senate. 'Cambodia bombing and war fund cutoffs also have been attached to a debt ceiling bill and a continuing resolution allowing the government to continue spending past midnight tonight. * of' the federal government will be legally penniless if Nixon does not sign the continuing resolutio by that time a Congress has not approved any of the 12 regular appropriations bills that finance the government. ? The House approved the cutoff of funds for all U.S. combat activities in Cambodia Laos and-North and South Vietnam after House Republican leader Gerald R Ford announced the compromise abide by Congress' decision. ^ Nixon authorized him to say, Ford told the House, that "if military activity is required in Southeast Asia after Aug. 15, the Presidnt will ask congressional authority of the House and Senate and will abide by Congress' decision." z 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 Hou|e believes "that there is a possi- bilify a settlement can be reached between now and Aug. 15 at the negotiating table," Ford said. But bombing opponents including Rep. itobVt N - Giaimo, D-Conn., contended the. President still was asking for Congress' ''abject surrender," and said the bombing should be halted immediately. "This would permit continuation of this war for six Ions and Wondv weeks," said Rep. John E. Moss, D-Callf. Rep. John J. Flynt Jr., D-Ga., who offered an amendment to cut off Cambodia bombing money immediately, told the House: "It is wrong to extend it one hour 'after today." .

Chile quells army rebels in attack on chiefs palace Associated Press SANTIAGO, Chile — Army rebels machine-gunned the presidential palace Friday, but loyalist troops crushed the rebellion and the government declared a state of emergency. At least seven persons were killed and 22 wounded in an exchange of gunfire. Six of the dead were civilians. 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. Allende, beset with strikes, violence and an economic crisis since he took office almost three years ago, did not say who .the civilians were. The tiny band of rebels apparently got no support from the rest gf Chile's 23,000-man army. A Chilean president has not been deposed by a military coup since 1932. The government asked Congress for power to make arrests without warrants and suspend other individual rights. 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. It was the first act of open rebellion against Allende since he came lo power in 1970, It was the second time this week that military men had made assaults on civilian rule in South America. ' ;; The government in Uruguay, acting under heavy military pressure, dissolved the Congress in Montevideo Wednesday and moved that country more firmly into the group of six South American nations where military men hold direct control or have heavy influence on government decisions. About 130 million of South America's 200 million people live under some form of military rule. Neighboring Argentina switched over last month to civilian government after Continued on Page A-2 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 White 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 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 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 he communicated everything that had happened to Haldeman, the man who saw the President most often. He admitted being involved in procuring money to keep the Watergate defendants quiet, of prompting Magruclcr to commit perjury and of taking $4,850 of committee funds to finance his honeymoon—money that he said he later returned. * - I 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 ar- Dean's filial clay 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 covet-up" to provide recommendations on legislation to prevent future Watergates. Dean said she was asking the tax sta- 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 lax case involving a close friend of the President's, described as "up to his ears in tax problems." Dean said she was askingthe tax sta- ' 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-14 Water shortage forces El Mirage to cutback 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. 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 system by Friday night to bolster the dwindling supply. "But it will still be nip and tuck 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 1 neighboring town, Surprise Councilman; Ernest Scritchi'ield 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. Surprise women complained that the water pressure was too low to take showers in the evening. They said the Continued on Page A-4 Trial-and-error setup cost guard's life, kin charges prayer Having patience for attaining goals in life is often difficult. But knowing You guide us through life. 0 Lord, enables me to temper my impatience, Amen. By DON BOLLES 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, fed J. Buckley, 26, during an inmate uprising in Cellbloek 3. Buckley was stabbed 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 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'Xj-hour delay in regaining control of the cellblock. The inmates had claimed they would hurt the already mortally wounded guards jf 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 bJood," 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 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 SVa years in the Army, while waiting for a police job, the brother said. "He seemed lo be proud of his job. but also afraid of it in some respects,'' Buckley said.
