Archeology Bill Becomes Law The Archeological Conservation Bill, signed into law last month by President Nixon will expand investigalion i n t o Ihe past, Dr. C. R. McGimsey in. president of the Society for American Archaeology and director of the Arkansas Archeological Survey said "this bill is the most important and far reaching conservation legislation since I960 and the enactment of the Historic Preservation law." A 1 1 the Arkansas congressional delegation strongly supported this legislation which wilt aid Arkansas' e f f o r t s to preserve her past, McGimsey said. The bill authorizes salvage of o u r nation's archeological remains that are in eminent danger of destruction by a wide variety of federal programs. It will vastly expand the investigation into our past of vital interesl as Ihe Bicentennial nears, and allow for recovery and interpretalion to the public of our heritage in ways and on a scale never possible before. Under the 1960 Reservoir Salvage Act, which this act amends, the National Park Service was authorized to salvage archeological sites that would le destroyed in the building of major dams. This new act widens this prgram and includes all federal agencies. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires all agencies to consider archeological resources as part of the environment and this Conservation Act authori/cs federal agencies to expend f u n d s for the study of these nonrenewable resources. Funding can be done either directly by an agency or by contracting the work to an appropriate institution. Alternately, federal agencies may transfer funds, up to one per cent of the project authorization, to the Secretary of the Interior for administering the work. The Secretary may carry out such work in a wide variety of federal grant or federally assisted private or public projects which alter the terrain and result In loss of archeological resources. He is further directed to conduct such salvage work in any other circumstance where he finds archeological resources are being destroyed by a federally funded or licensed project. Agencies may now plan for research into the nature of thi resources being affected . b their work, long ahead of con struction. Planning for the res cue and interpretation of th information will go hand i: hand with planning for th project. Not only will this b done efficiently and to the bene fit of all citizens of the country but it will require revoutionary new approaches \a the stud of the past. This bill will allow the Arkan sas Archeological Survey th opportunity to work will ftderal agencies in preservini Arkansas' unique cultural herit age. McGimsey said.

Jones Named CAC Chairman SPR1NGDALE -- In a Wednesday organizational meeting of the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) on regional t r a n s - ' portation. Paul Jones was named chairman. Jones, of Scheduled Skyways n Fayettevillo, was appointed -q a one-year term by Kayelte- ville mayor, Russell Purdy. who s present .chairman of the Fayetteville-Springdale Transporta- 'ion Committee. The CAC will function a.i an advisory board for the two-city transportation committee. To meet on a quarterly basis Kfore each melting of the Fay- tion Committee, the CAC will provide citizen input 'into ·egional transportalion matters. Such participalion. in the form of the CAC, is required as part of recent revisions lo Ihe Highway Act. Ken Riley. director of the Northwest Arkansas Regional a n n i n g Commission (N- WARPC), which is serving as coordinating agent for the various related transporlation commiltees, explained what the and the Transportation Technical Committee will be doing. Riley explained that the first ^ayetteville-Springdale Trans- jorlation Committee (which has 3een rorgamzed since the revisions to the Highway Art) ivorked with the Arkansas Highway Department in deve- loping a 20-year study of regional transportation. 20-YEAR STUDY This report, the Northwest Arkansas Regional Transportation Study, needs to be kept up-to-date to continue to reflect changes in the area brought about by continue growth and development. The three transportation committees will keep p a c e with the changes, especially focusing on the urban areas. R e c e n t l y , Fayetteville. Springdale, Washington and Benlon Counties, and the Arkansas Highway Department in cooperation with related federal agencies entered into a memo of understanding that endorsed continued planning in traspor- tation. Because Wednesday was the first meeting for the CAC with 21 persons attending, the agenda did not contain any transportation-related business, would be doing and some information about what is now being done. Marcclla Thompson of the Economic Opportunity Agency asked if t h e committee would be dealing with all modes of transportalioin or concentrating on highways and roads. Riley replied, "All aspects." Ben Johnson, of Fayetteville, said he wanted to see the CAC and the Technical Committee explore various ways of moving the commercial goods in and out of the area. He felt that as growth continues, more economic ways will have to be found if this area is to remain competitive with the rest of Ihe nation. COMMITTEE CO-OPERATION Carl McChesney of Ihe stalehighway department said he thought the three committees should be able to ask each other to look into different subjects. McChesney told the group it was unfortunate this region \yas the only one in the state which did not qualify for s p e c i a l federal funds to be used in transportation planning. While this area has been federally designated a Standard Metropolitan Statislical Area (one of Ihe required qualifica- lions for funding) and so has to have Ihe transportation committees to be eligible for federal transportalion assistance, the region has not been officially declared an urbanized area. The region's population was not great enough to be so declared when the 1970 census was taken. The area now has enough population hut the census is the rule used to decide eligibility for the funding. Rilcy said the district's congressman has been asked to try to remedy the silualion. One member, Bill Cause of Springdale, said Ihcre appears to be money available for mass transit planning and programs and suggested focusing on obtaining this. Cause told members thai the Economic Opportunity Agency of Washington County is in the process of obtaining a federal grant with which lo purchase a 15-passenger vehicle. This bus would be used by senior citizens for weekly trips to the doctor's office, food stamp office, social security office, etc. Scheduled to begin in August, ttic bus would service four routes on four weekdays: a Prairie Grove ami Lincoln route, a West Fork and Winslow route, an F.lkins and Tontilown route, and a Fayeltcvlllc and Springdale route. The bus would be used on the fiftli wcckd.'iy for special outings atid field trips. Riley said Ihis program could possibly be tied into a rural mass transit demonstration program in Washington and Bcnlon Counties. He said the region will try to work out a rural mass transit plan that would be selected for funding as a demonstration project by th» federal government.
