REPUBLIC REPUBLIC CITY 16 Th« Arizona Repu G3 lljwrs., June 18, Indians ask that Hickel be retained United Press International WASHINGTON - The nation's largest Indian organization has come to the defense of Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel, rumored to be on his way out. In a telegram to President Nixon, the National Congress of American Indians praised Hickel for his "dynamic leadership" and asked Nixon to keep him on the job. The telegram was .sent earlier this week by Bruce A. Wilkie, NCAI executive director, and released yesterday. Wilkie, a Makah Indian from the state of Washington, also criticized Nixon for "allowing rumors to run wild" regarding HickePs future in the administration. / In the telegram to Nixon, the young Indian leader said Indians are "concerned" about reports the former Alaska governor would be replaced because he had made the Interior Department "more responsive" to Indian needs. "We have witnessed in Secretary nickel's administration of the Department of the Interior, the dynamic leadership that department has long lacked," WilHe said. "We sense his sincere efforts and positive action on behalf of the American Indians, a people under his responsibility as secretary of the interior." Wilkie's telegram said Indians "deplore any midaci- ministration changes in such an important position."

Professor sees youth using drugs to 'zap their parents Associated Press that part of the problem with Associated Press TUCSON — A University of Arizona professor said Tuesday that he thinks many youngsters use drugs as a form of retaliation against parents' traditional autocratic authority. "Using drugs is a marvelous way to 'zap' parents," Dr. Oscar C. Christensen told a group of 30 educators and nurses during a drug workshop being held in Tucson. "Some kids even do all kinds of things to make their parents think they're using drugs, although they have the good sense not to," he added. "They burn incense in their rooms and put on symptoms of a drug user, just to -worry their parents." Christensen, a professor of guidance and counseling, said that part of the problem with youngsters stems from the trouble thay have making any kind of contribution to the community. "I would like to see junior high students who are borderline successes, that is, about to drop out of school, 'be used as teacher aides to tutor kids in lower grades," he said. "If a student who had experienced failure were actually involved in that system," he added, "he'd find it hard to knock that system." 11 MILLION TEXANS HOUSTON (AP) - U.S. Census Bureau figures released yesterday gave Texas a population of 10,986,293, a mild-slowdown in growth over the past two decades. Associated Press WASHINGTON - Equal rights for women would help stop the population explosion, a House subcommittee was told yesterday. "Contraceptions, modified migration patterns, coercive family limitation and other superimposed means do not get to the heart of the problem" of overpopulation, Wilma Scott Heide, a member of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, told the House subcommittee on education. "Unless women have, from the moment of birth, socialization for, expectations of and preparation for viable significant alternatives to motherhood as their chief adult occupation, women will continue to want and produce too many children instead of producing ideas, art, literature, leadership, inventions and healthier social relationships." She also criticized President Nixon for not meeting with women leaders attending the recent 50th anniversary conference of the Labor Department's Women's Bureau: "The President . . . could not even be present to greet this great gathering of serious American women in the White House," Mrs. Heide said. "The women were relegated to a punch and cookie party on the White House lawn to be greeted by Mrs. Nixon, forever gracious, but neither now nor forever representative of women who have our own identity and personhood independent of the men in our lives." PHILADELPHIA - Ike Sinnamon was the friendly corner grocer with the little touch of extra for his customers. Like Tuesday night. Just at 6 p.m. closing time he waited just a little longler to sell a package of sausage to Mrs. Margaret Anthony, 31, one of the neighbors. It took a few minutes. At 6:10, he was rolling on the sidewalk outside pf the store with a holdup man's bullet in his abdomen. Five shots were fired through the side door of the store he tried to lock as the two holdup men approached. One broke a glass panel, three ripped into the wood paneling. One struck Sinnamon. He died two hours later. A shocked neighborhood talked in hushed tones yesterday about the little amenities he put into his neighbor- Hippies asked to avoid Atlanta ATLANTA (AP) - "Unless you have bread and a pad, please find your thing somewhere else, or face a bad scene," says Mayor Sam Massell. The mayor said Tuesday he has submitted this advertisement to 12 underground newspapers throughout the country, asking hippies not to congregate in Atlanta this summer. But The Great Speckled Bird, an underground paper published here, said it plans to ask other publications either to refuse to run the ad . or to publish a statement from hippie leaders beside it. hood business during the past 25 years. He was white, in a predominantly black neighborhood. The blacks said the kindest things about Isaac Sinnamon, 67, from Ireland, who catered to their needs over the years. There had been some hectic minutes in the past for the man the clientele called "Ike" or "Mr. Sinnamon," either one, warmly. Another holdup shooting where the bullet missed. And a cutting. Ike carried the scar of a razor-slash across his face, memento of a past holdup. "I saved him that time," neighbor H. B. Lindsay Sr. said reflectively. "Saved his head from being cut off. Dragged the guy off him. You'll see the scar on Ike to this day." "He was a nice, nice, man, friendly and courteous," Mrs. Mary Shepherd, who lives a couple of doors up the street, said. "Black or white, the color of a person's skin didn't make any difference to him. Little treats for the kids. He was just a regular fellow." Mrs. Shepherd is black. Police had little to go by. Mrs. Anthony and other neighbors who saw the killers loitering in the neighborhood, ; described them in the early 20s.
