Page 30 article text (OCR)* REPUBLIC Tribe asked t .t |o lower •«; ' ( toting age WINDOW ROCK-About 20 Indian youths Friday demon* seated in front of the Navajo Tribal Council chambers, urging the council to lower the voting age to 18 in tribal elec- ttyns. iThe Indian youths were members of the McKinley (|.M.) County Youth Committee, Carrying signs with si3|Gh phrases as "Put Youth off the Agenda" and "Accept diir Help Now," the young people paraded in front of the council chambers for about aft hour before their spokesmen were allowed to present tllteir views to the council. /Timothy Clashin, a member of; the committee from Low Mou n t a i n, explained that, while the legal voting age in otl - reservation elections is l|, the tribal election code calls for a minimum voting age of 21. "We are concerned about tribal affairs," said Clashin, "and feel we should have the right to vote." •jHe added that he and other members of the. committee would also like to see the minimum age for council members lowered from 30. *N a v a j o Tribal Chairman Peter MacDonald asked the leaders of the group to meet with the board.of election sup^e r v i s o r s and suggest changes they would like to see in the tribal election laws. MacDonald said he supports tlie efforts of the young people because "the tribe needs tq have the young people involved." He added it appeared the council feels the same way, since a resolution was ap- pfoved several months ago which requested the tribe's bpard of election supervisors to; look into the tribal election la_ws and recommend changes. >The council, after hearing the youths, took no action on their requests because of its prior request for election law cHanges, MacDonald said.

KYidnv .tnlv ft _ Rndon •> Th* tf i,«anie r-iniOa annual annual Frontier Days celebration that begins here Wednesday. Sheridan Rutledge, executive secretary of the Chamber Memorial planned in Ajo for boy shot by deputies AJO — The Childs family, living on a ranch 8 miles north of here, has announced plans for a memorial service on the anniversary of the death of Phillip Celaya, 19, shot to death by sheriff's deputies July 1,1972. Celaya was the grandson of Thomas Childs, founder of Ajo. Young Celaya had seized a pistol from one of the deputies during a disturbance and fired at least'one shot before he was killed by two bullets from Pima County sheriff's deputies. The memorial service will be in the Ajo Plaza Sunday at 5p.m. Members of the family notified the Pima County sheriff's office of the service and indicated the gathering is to be a peaceful one. The family also indicated it hopes the demonstration will spotlight grievances made after Celaya's death a year ago to federal, state and county authorities, as well as a local mining company. The family claims no action has been taken on these grievances. Harvard College is cutting down CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — At Harvard College, final examinations may be on their way out. Only a dozen years ago, nearly all undergraduate lecture courses there held three - hour written finals. This spring, 40 per cent of the college's lecture courses eliminated finals. Professors are beginning to question the usefulness of final examinations and are dropping them in favor of term papers and other research projects. Dr. Barbara Cohn, who teaches a course with sociologist David Riesman, which apparently was the first Harvard lecture course to eliminate the final, said, "The long paper allows the professor and the student to work together and get very close to each other. "I think it does create a very fine a t mo s p h ere — you're colleagues with the student. You're working on a learning thing together rather than against each other."
