! · Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, July 19, 1974 rAYETTEVlLLE, ARKANSAS __ Arkansas Alligator Population Increases By 200 This Week .': LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas is opening its arms and swamps to alligators. Dick Broach of the sla*e Game and Fish Commission said Thursday that alligators - have been placed on the federal endangered species list. The At- --ard-like creaturs are part of C ' Arkansas' natural heritage, he said. "The state would indeed he much poorer without its alligators," he said. Hsowever, Louisiana has mo-e o' the creatures than it wanted. Since alligators have become a pest there, Louisiana officials -fathered about 500 alligators. 'and with the assistance of the Audubon Society shipped them : north to Mississippi and Arkansas. ___ 'Women's Group Hears Evaluation Of ERA LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Executive Director of the Iowa Commission on the Status of Women said in Little Rock to- dav it the Equal Rights Amendment is not ratified in 1975, the backers of the amendment will consider its failure "a real setback". Mrs. Alice McKee of Ues Moines, Iowa, in Arkansas to address the slate chapter of the American Association of University Women meeting in Rus- sellvil'le, said if the amendment fails next year, its backers would have to "face a realization" and probably attempt then on a piece meal basis to amend bills in each state to weed out what they consider to be sex discrimination. The ERA has been passed in 33 slates so far, with five more needed for ratification. It failed in the Arkansas Cjeneral Assembly in 1973 when opposition forces were successful in attaching an amendment to it. Arkansas received 200 to repliiiish its declining alligator stock in south Arkansas wildlife management areas. T h e state Game and Fish Commission completed the alligator reslocking work in Arkansas Wednesday. "We're trying to re-establish a breeding stock in marshy areas in southern Arkansas ·-- if! commission-owned wildlife management areas and on private lands where habitat and protection can be provided," Broach said. "They are vital. They- greatly offset population explosibns of muskrat, leaver and nutria." The latter is a animal similar to the beaver, but more destructive in that it consumes more types of vegetation. Alligators also are helpful because they dig dens, Broach said. He said water would slay in these alligator holes during the summer when several small lakes dry up.

The Turks undoubtedly would accept that proposal. They have been advocating it ever since the first coalition government of : Greek and Turkish Cypriots broke down more than a decade 'ago. But Greece and the Greek Cypriots have repeatedly and strenuously rejected partition, figuring that-ii.ultimately the 4 to 1 numerical" advantage forms. "We 'are staffed adequately now to where we can help provide necessary degrees of. n r j - lection," he said. " M a n y pn- vate lands now are being developed and exploited for optimum monetary returns, and in fie process much of this low land alligator habitat is drained, such as old lakes, natural marshes." He said development was occurring 'primarily for agricultural purposes. Broach said soybean farmers. ..prefer to drain low, wet marshy a r e a s and raise beans on the land. "It's kind of ironical that th? federal government expressed such an interest in endangered species, but at the same time other federal agencies arc sun- sidizing this loss of habitat, Brtach added.

Community Appearance Group Revises Arkansas Avenue Plans A revised concept of how Arkansas Avenue will be rejuvenated was adopted by the city's Community Apearance Committee Thursday. The revised concept calls for retaining the present elm trees as long as possible; replanting with tall growing trees to avoid interlerrence with traffic and maintain the canopy effect; replacing grass with evergreen ground cover; providing sufficient crosswalks to accomodate pedestrian traffic; and raising curbing to prevent encroachment by automobiles. Other plans call for moving the Will Rogers marker away from'the Dickson' Street intersection and placing it adjacent to'a crosswalk; maintaining the natural appearance of the area area d 'transition space between communityand campus. The committee also voted to · investigate;the possibility of installing a permanent watering system when renovation is underway.

UA Instructor To Take Sex Discrimination Suit To HEW Government To Close Testimony On Reinecke WASHINGTON (AP) -- California Lt. Gov. Ed Reinecke emerges from his scribbled notes on the ITT case as an ambitious man who sought a top post at a Republican National Convention. The notes also show that he Followed advice to volunteer no information when he testified before a Senate committee. .The government hopes to end its case against Reinecke today with the reading of grand jury evidence. The defense is expected to call its first witnesses next week. One point that does emerge in the 18 pages of notes introduced at Reinecke's perjury trial 'on Thursday is that he told former Atty..Gen. John N. Mitchell by telephone in May and June 1971 about plans to bring the 1972 GOP convention to San Diego. But the key issue on which the trial hangs is the date on which Reinecke first told Mitchell about a pledge from the International Telephone Telegraph Cbrp. to help underwrite to blend with the east side of c i n d e d'the Einert .plan, ; on re- the campus: and to make the commendation of committee member Steve Brown. The matter has-been under study'since that time. " . ' · ' . , - · No concrete plans for the project were adopted at the. meeting. ' In other business the committee noted that planting along Hwy. 71 in the College Avenue project is complete.and that a final inspection of the 30-day liveability pledge will be. conducted by Brown and a representative of the nursery on July UNDERSIZED TREES At the June meeting it was :he convention. Reinecke told N. VieisHit Da Nang Base With Rockets SAIGON, South Vietnam (AP) -- North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces shelled the Da Narig air base today with. 34 rockets, killing 16 persons and wounding 73, military sources reported.; They, said many of ;he'casualties were members of servicemen's families. It was the first time: the air base had been shelled since the c e a s e - f i r e ' agreement 17% months ago. Informed sources said a fuel depot containing 250,000 gallons of diesel oil was set afire and a helicopter destroyed. The Communists struck at other government positions along South Vietnam's northern coast-and in the central highlands. Military sources .reported 40 South Vietnamese troops and c i v i l i a n s killed and 132 wounded, while the government claimed 108 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong killed. In the central highlands, radio contact was lost with a 400- man battalion manning an outpost seven miles northeast of Kontum. The battalion was guarding a stretch of highway which North Vietnam needs to complete a supply route from Laos to South Vietnam's central coast. In Cambodia, . 'government troops battled insurgents near the Prek Thnot dam 45 miles southwest of Phnom Penh. The Cambodian command claimed 100 rebel soldiers were killed and seven were captured; it 26. noted that many of the I .trees did not reach heights requested in specifications. Brown:., was authorized to negotiate a settlement with the nursery. He announced Thursday, that an agreement had been reached with the nursery picking up the cost of plastic used in the project, which exceeded the amount specified in the bid. . The plastic costs exceeded the bid by $233, which the nursery paid "as compensation. The committee was told that Mayes 'Nursery had been paid $11,918.20, the amount of the bid. The nursery is due an additional $1,300 for gravel in excess of the amount specified in the bid. Payment will be made after the final inspection of plants and replacement of any that do not meet requirements. It was also noted that a service station which had placed advertising signs in the planters had removed them, as had a campaign committee. However, two real estate firm signs remain in the islands and another filling station has placed an "open" sign on a sandwich board in one of the planters. LITTLE ROOK.

In his hand-written chronology, Reinecke said he did not inform the senators of the telephone calls partly because he remembered the advice of then- presidential counselor Clark MacG-regor--"Follow the first law of..the courtroom: answer questions only and do not volunteer."
