Not satisfied with Kentucky, some of the emigrants moved into Alabama two years later. Here they were forced to move because they had settled on land belonging to the Cherokee Indians. From Alabama tjhe pioneers moved to Crystal Hill, Ark., where they r e m a i n e d until 1826. They learned that the Indian tribes were to be moved out of the Northwest Arkansas area and decided to leave Crystal Hill, which they had found to be unhealthy.

Voice Issues, Strauss Warns CHICAGO (AP) -- If Democrats are to regain the White House in 1976, they must do more than simply rely on political fallout from Watergate. That was the message given o 15 Democratic governors who met here Sunday and Monday. Absent from consideration in closed business sessions during :he final day of the Democratic Governors Conference were resolutions relating specifically to Watergate, and discussion about Watergate was generally lacking, said some of those who attended. Democratic national chair man Robert S. Strauss and Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D-Minn -- the two featured speakers -sounded similiar themes: Wa tergate should help Democrat; in November's congressiona elections, but a sure-fire pro gram must be formulated on which to run a successful presi dential candidate in 1976. "To put it bluntly. 1974 and 1975 are years of decision years of opportunity for the Democrats." said .Humphrey He said he was hopeful of big congressional wins in Novem her and possibly a Democralic controlled, "veto-proof" Con gress. But he cautioned, "There can no excuses for any failure 01 our part. ..." Strauss saitt Democrats can not expect American voters ti turn to their party "merely be cause of their rejection of Re publican leadership." Speaking of impeachmen and resignation regarding Pres ident Nixon, Strauss told the g o v e r n o r s that Democrat should not call for the Presi dent's resignation. ''. . . Lei us remember wha this President was and die when he perceived himself I, be a hero," said Strauss. "I ask you whal horrors await this na lion if he is able to characterize, and portray himself as a re signed martyr." "Ilinois Gov. Daniel Walker who hosted the gathering at tended by 15 of the nation's 3', Democratic governors, saic Watergate was referred lo only as general background in a dis cussion of proposed campaigi reforms.

Congress Divided WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House Government Operations Committee says a survey shows members of Congress are "almost evenly divided on the question of whether too much or too little use is being made of general revenue sharing." The committee reported Sjn- day on the results of a survey it conducted through confidential responses from 203 of the 535 members of Congress. "Democrats, on '. h e whole, felt there is too heavy reliance on general revenue sharing while Republicans felt there is too little." the panel said. It said 51 per cent of those responding considered tax reduction by recipient governments a desirable use of revenue sharing money, while 35 per cent--but a majority of the Democrats--called it undesf rable.
