The Archbishop of the Santa ,»e Archdiocese, James P.

A bill * currently pending in Congress :,,would give 50,000 acres of the •^land to the pueblo. ' In a statement late Wednesday the archbishop said: "I am happy and honored to 'be able to lend my support to 'the Taos Indian Pueblo and •their struggle to regain posses- *sion of the Blue Lake area. 1 have studied the history of this struggle and am aware of the /obstacles that have been placed ''and may yet be placed in the .path of the Taos Indians. /•..."It is difficult to conceive any ^argument that can take precedence over the sacred convie tions of a people.

F. Molzen and Asso ciates was told to start the study of the dam which will be ocated below the present Tansill Dam. If built the dam will be the first step in a proposed $500,000 river-front park and reorc- atlonal development. Completion of the project hinges on approval of a requested $93,000 federal allocation, however.

Gardner said that Medicare will take care of only 25 to 35 ier cent of total medical costs md that the plan is going to )e "extravagently expensive." In a three hour meeting of the louse of Delegates, policy mak- ng body of the Medical Socle- ;y, Dr. Lyle Carr of Albuquerque was elected president while Dr. Eramit Jennings of Roswel was named president-elect. In other offices, Dr. Ear 'lanagan of Carlsbad was nam ed vice president; Dr. Allan L laynes, Clovis and Dr. James C. Sedgwick, Las Cruces, were re-elected delegates to the an nual American Medical Society convention. Dr. John D. Abrums of Albuquerque was re-electee secretary-treasurer. Among the actions taken by the delegates at their final as sembly Wednesday was the ap pointment of an ad hoc com mittee "for an extensive study 1 to determine whether changes are needed in New Mexico abortion laws. The delegates also recom mended that society members as of July 1, disregard the Welfare Dept. fee schedule as it is now issued by the department, and instead bill the Welfare Department for their "usual and customary fees." The resolution added, however, that in carrying out this policy, 'there shall be no withholding or restriction on necessary ser vices to DPW clients." 'Amateurish' Work Charged In NM Ads ALBUQUERQUE (UP!) Advertising man Fred F. McCaffrey of Albuquerque charged today the State Department of Development was spending tax payers' money for "amateurish and shoddy" work by the ad agencies it hires. McCaffey's fire was aroused by a Development Department ad in the May issue of Industrial Research magazine. The full-page ad is headlined "Cotton in New Mexico" and has a drawing of a sheepherder and a flock of sheep. "These hard - earned tax dollars are being spent in a way which is amateurish and shoddy well beneath the professional standards which should be expected of state agencies," McCaffrey said in a news release issued today. He appealed to the candidates for governor to promise to obtain the best advise available on how to use the state's advertising funds most effectively. McCaffrey is president of McCaffrey, Stoller Co. This not his first blast at the state. Earlier, he blasted the State Fair for "a misuse of state funds for tired old advertising" and the Department of Development for using its advertising account as an alleged "political pay-off." "This issue of this particular magazine," Me Caffrey said, "has a lead article on research sites, so the counterparts of New Mexico's Department of Development in many areas ar«> running ads to show the desire- ability of their locale for research. "But New Mexico, which probably has a better story to tell in this regard than almos any other part of the country has an ad brapgig about the es tablishment of an underwear plant in Las Cruces, with the 'imaginative 1 headline, 'Cotton in New Mexico." I* * k' « p t, *v~{£ « IS e r t '•* with ornyfe's exclusive Fiberglass Panels SPECIAL THRU 20e wot t Doit Yourselfl with •5'* It? ornyfe NM Orders Change Reaffirmed f"jj to Tire &tatc of Flfliftee Tuesday real' firmed .its policy of limiting "change orders'* of contracts to per cent of the contract amount. Don Rider, representative of the New Mexico Municipal League, asked the board to change the policy, Members flatly told him they would not do so. But Cesar Sebastian, state director of finance, said he is sending instructions td governmental subdivision which would allow them to provide for possible extensions of contracts at the time of bidding. Action Put Off The board (referred action on a request by the Capital Building Improvements Commission for a change order in the contract for the legislative building to increase price of utility installations by $8509. The deferral came after the board members were told the additional money is more than 5 per cent of the originalutility cost. The board did grant the Mutual Domestic Water Users Assn. of Regina permission to increase the contract for installation of water lines from $7000 to $11,000 to provide for more ines than planned at the time the contract waslet. 'I think it is a poor Idea, but I guess we've got to do it," commented Lincoln O'Brien board member. Changes in Contracts "Change orders" are changes n existing contracts which, generally, call for additional work and payment of more money than provided in the original agreement. The Board of Finance laid down the 5 per cent limit a month ago, when the apitol Buildings Improvement .ommission sought permission to add more in change orders for demolition of buildings than the original contract amount. The Doard granted the approval, but specified in the future such orders should not total more than 5 per cent of the contract price. The order applies not only to the state and its agencies, but o cities, counties and other sub divisions. "I object to it on the grounds you are substituting the judg icnt of the Board of Finance for that of the local governing body," said Rider. "It may mean a slowdown of jobs, and more costly construction." Could Make Call O'Biren told him a city could As the radioactive dust from Red China*s tWrd nuclear test drifted westward, there seemed a special irony fn another event taking place in Geneva, Switzerland. This was the recess of the 17- lation Disarmament Confer ence whose marathon exercise in futility now is in its fifth year. And on that note the conference could be dismissed —except that it deals with man's survival. The conference resumed its deliberations last January on a note of optimism. Most eagerly sought, and with, it seemed, some chande of success, was agreement to halt the spread of nuclear weapons. "As ift hat weren't enough, this ad, ostensibly aimed at attracting research scientists, is illustrated with a drawing of an aged sheepherder and his flock of sheep. Most research scientist , I am sure, are aware that cotton does not grown on sheep. It says "all cotton - picking details" are available through the Department of Development. McCaffrey said he felt this r erence was in bad taste. OI.OVIS NEW-JORNAI* MEMBER AUDIT BUBEAIT ov ciBCtuvrioxs BY LITTLE MERCHANT CARRIER $1.75 monthly In advance.

Cloud Of Chinese A-Test HangsOverDisarmament Positions Clarified Sought also was an extension to underground tests of the iresent partial nuclear test ban. But it was a measure of the conference success that in the moment of recess the delegates could draw solace only from ihe Russian statement that the talks had clarified opposing positions and obstacles. The trouble was that basically these opposing positions and obstacles have teen known for years. One obstacle was the makeup of the conference itself, com- of small, non-nuclear position took precedence over any real negotiations. Ignore Real Problems A second was that the conference itself operated in a dream world which treated disarmament as a problem separate from the disagreements which made disarmament impossible. Thus it becomes relatively easy to reach accord on aanning nuclear weapons from ipace but difficult to stop their cowers with neither voice nor responsibility for world peace, and three nuclear powers et preliminary approval for a change order by making a telephone call to the State Dept. of Finance. Sebastian said he is sending instructions to sll subdivisions, dvising them to put possible "contingencies" into their calls for bids. This, he said, would enable them to possible add work later, if they desired and still have bid prices one very- thing. He cited the example of a city which advertised for bid: for a well, with the view of drilling several if good water were ound in the first. By asking for "alternate bids" for additiona wells at the time of the officia bid opening, officials would know how much the extra ones would cost, if they decided to drill them, and bidding contrac tors would be advised there might be additional work later PLACE YOUR TRUST IN PROFESSIONAL HANDS You are always welcome to inspect our up-toi date prescription department—the heart of our store.

Employment Guidelines Under Study WASHINGTON (UPD — U.S. Sen. Joseph M, Montoya, D- N.M., following a conference with three high-ranking administration onficials, said "specific guidelines" were being developed to insure fair employment For Spanish-Americans. The senator also said lie has urged the President to appoint a Spanish-speaking American to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Meeting with Montoya were John W. Macy, Jr., chairman of the Civil Service Commission and presidential assistants Jo seph A. Califano, Harry C. Me-' Pherson Jr., and Jacob Jacobsen. Montoya said the problem was two-fold: There were too few Spanish-Americans being hired by civil service and thatj they often had great difficulty getting promoted. TYPEWRITER ADDING MACHINE REPAIR GOODMAN Office Supply 1212 Main—Dial 7G3-55H9 The Geneva summit conference of 1955 produced a hopeful but illusory "spirit of Geneva." Cynics later described results as a Russian "nyet with a smile." No German Solution It did not produce the hoped- for free elections for a unified Germany. But from it there did finally emerge improved cultural and economic relations with the Soviet Union and its East| European satellites. The year 1963 saw the emergence of the partial j nuclear test ban, negotiated not in Geneva but Moscow among Britain, Russia and the United States. The glaring weakness today! is the total absence from 1 disarmament talks of the two latest members of the atomic club—Red China and France. And until such time us talk can replace silence and trust take the place of suspicion, the United States must use an unpleasant antidote. It would make an interesting bet to say that from somewhere in the sky, the United States had a picture of that mushroom - shaped Chinese cloud at the moment it emerged.
