REPUBLIC OCITY 38 The Arizona Republic O Thurs., June 18,1970 Environment conference ends with nothing adopted, recommended By BOB THOMAS Southern Arizona Bureau GRAND CANYON—With all the environmental problems of pollution, overpopulation and deteriorating wild areas still unsolved, more than 100 scientists yesterday wound up a three-day conference weary and all talked out. Nothing was adopted nor recommended, and no one would admit to having been persuaded to change his viewpoint, but the experts on all the myriad facets of ecology did not call the meeting a failure. During the 14-hour days, the scientists exchanged ideas. School head is assailed Associated Press SELLS — A group of 34 Papago parents say they are local school superintendent seeking the dismissal of the because of alleged unethical practices. The Concerned Parents Association of Sells, in a statement released yesterday, gave its unanimous support to the views of Dean F. Saxton, a Sells teacher who last week strongly criticized superintendent Don L. Peterson. Saxton said Peterson had sicouraged Indian culture studies, replaced teachers with members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and supported LDS missionary work with the school children.

Phoenix carpenters, in rejecting the contract, followed the lead of union laborers in the Valley. They rejected the three - year contract offered them, but laborers elsewhere in Arizona provided enough favorable votes to ratify the agreement. Industry sources expect both the Tucson and Phoenix Cement Masons will come to terms with the contractors once the carpenters have settled. What will happen if the carpenters reject the proposal was not clear last night. Other related contracts remaining to be renewed are those between the teamsters and operating engineers and the Arizona Aggregate Association. Teamsters Local 83 began a strike against the aggregate industry June 1, virtually closing down all major building projects in the state and the entire highway construction program. The strike has deprived the projects of ready - mix concrete. Meanwhile, the Arizona Employment Security Commission reported that 36,100 persons were employed by contract in the construction industry throughout the state last month. This included an increase of 800 workers in May. The commission said the employment figure was 12 per cent, or 4,000, higher than a year ago. Of the 36,100 in the construction industry, about 15,000 were bound by union contracts, the commission noted. shouted at each other, wrangled over methods and thrilled over visions of a future in which some still-undefined order would provide the quality of life they so desired. However, others scoffed at the believers, saying the world was too far gone to improve and people could only hope to hold the line against further degradation. The conference was summed up by Dr. Garrett Hardin, a biological scientist from Santa Barbara, Calif., who told his associates "to remain cool, accept somewhat less than 100 per cent success." Hardin, widely respected for his role in trying to save from destruction the "commons" of the earth—oceans and lands held in common ownership for future generations- said he thought the environment could be saved. "This problem of population is amenable to rational solution," he said. "We don't want to antagonize those persons whom we are trying to convince." This was a warning against drastic action, advocated by some of the younger scientists, along lines of continuation of protests, civil disobedience and test cases pioneered in the civil rights movement. Earlier the Grand Canyon symposium, sponsored by the University of Utah, heard two scientists tell of the dangefs of air and atomic pollution. Dr. Robert C. Pendleton of the University of Utah said it was a dreadful mistake for this nation to try and make atomic energy economically competitive with other forms of power. Instead, the government should increase its subsidies to atomic research so that the nuclear power plants can be made safer. He predicted that the plants, as presently designed, are unsafe and that this nation is flirting with a terrible thfeat of death and poisoned environment if a nuclear accident happens.
