Dale Bumpers said Wednesday ·hat it is difficult to explain why envioronmental preserva- aori legislation failed in the legislature, even though the vole l O f ' U ' w a s 60 to 15. Bumpers explained that the state's 100-year-old Constitution ·cquires a three-fourth's vote to approve appropriation measures such as the ones for the environmental preservation commis- Patty Hearst til Continues SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The FBI agent in charge of the Patricia Hearst kidnaping case says he lies awake Mights think ing about ways to find the fugi tive heiress and the two com panions whose terrorist cause she has adopted. '.'We've interviewed 22,000 people right here ill this damn office alone," said Charles Bates, special'agent in chargi of the Symbionese Liberation Army investigation. The inves tigation's principal arm now i: the arrest of the 20-year-ol Miss Hearst and Einily and Bil Harris. Bates said Wednesday tha 150 agents had been working or the case since Miss Hearst wa abducted from her Berkele: apartment by the SLA Feb.

Miss Hearst, the daughter San Francisco newspaper exec utive Randolph A. Hearst, wanted on a variety of charge ranging from kidnaping to ban robbery. ion that failed in the special ession. "While the vast majority of he people in this state obvious- r favored the bills and under- lood the motives behind them, icy didn't pass because of the nacronism of the Constitu- on," he said. The'governor, speaking to the rd Arkansas Environmental Congress, said that it is not question of if the legislation 'ill be approved, but when and i what form. During the special session, he General Assembly defeated equests for $2.9 million for the urchase of natural areas and ;60,000 for staffing and opera ing the Environmental Preser ation Commission. Bumpers said, however, thai he bills failed "not because ol ,ny lack of awareness on the tart of the people of this state jr even on the part of the le'gis ature, and I think I would be unfair to criticize the legisla ure." He praised the diversity o and in Arkansas but warnei hat land is not limitless and ndestructible.. "If we really believe In pre serving our natural areas, w have to work harder, exer more leadership and explain tc those who are apprehensive, o uninformed, or both, the reason for preserving the govern ment," Bumpers said. Other speakers at the even included Col. Donald Weiner the Little Rock District Eng neer for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers; John Saxton director of Hie state Divisio of Soil and Water Resource: and Dr. Joe Nix, president o the Ozark Society. Weinert tol dthe group th since citizens are turning to go vernment as a "referee, we ar going to hace to bring pur pro grams and procedures into lin with our new social values s that a balance w i l l b achieved." Saxton said too many stal agencies have built-in biase when called in to review It technical aspects of propose water development projects. Nix said that a stream prc servation program needs to b developed in Arkansas, using scenic easement approach uncle which land owners would b compensated for any loss of th use of land adjacent to th streams.
