Five species of fish that had never been found before in the Illinois River were collected. "The Illinois River is fairly clean and unpolluted but it will be degraded if the sewage plant is put in," Kittle said, rebutting t h e planning commission's charge that the effluent would not lower the river's quality. Also addressing the Highlands Chapter Thursday night was David Strickland, of the Scenic Rivers Association from Musko- gce, Okla. Strickland said Eastern Oklahoma is very disturbed about the effects of the sewage treatment plant and increased development along the Illinois River. His group, which is part of the Illinois River Conservation Council formed this year, fought to stop a major land development planned along 5.6 miles of the river. A Florida company, Context Industries, joined with a local developer to form the Flint Ridge Development Co. Plans called for building-3,000 houses on 6,000 acres, , each house equipped w i t h , a septic tank. Only arterial roads through the development would have been paved. The group searched for a legal way to fight the development and found one in the federal interstate land sales acl that required developers lo file a property report with the federal government and obtain federal approval of the application before the sales transaction. U.S. District Ford Rejects 'Zero Growth' Environment Policy SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -President Ford said today that "zero growth" environmental policies fly in the face of human nature and must be rejected In favor of reasonable compromises. The President said last winter's energy crisis demonstrated that the nation must mine and use more coal, drill for more oil on the ocean's continental shelf, develop oil shale resources and speed construction of nuclear power, plants. "There are some well-meaning people who see the environmental issue as an 'either, or 1 proposition," Ford said in a statement read at the Expo '74 world fair by Interior Secretary Rogers C.B. Morton. "They would make the environment the overriding consideration in all our activities, re- Officials of the Arkansas late Hospital have decided hat Dennis Cordes, V6, Spring ale, is "without psychosis." ordes is charged in Washing)n Circuit Court with posses- .ori with intent to deliver mphetamines. ad asked for His attorneys a delay of his Court Judge Luther Bohanbn'of Oklahoma City, Okla., earlier this month ruled to stop the land sales along the river unlil the Flint Eidge Development Company prepared an environmental impact statement and received federal approval of the project. Strickland said he assumes the decision will be appealed by the developers but he rial on the charge while Cordes vas undergoing psychiatric valuation. Cordes arid Bob Phillips, 24. Jso of Springdale, were charged after their arrest June 13 t the Northwest Arkansas 'laza in Fayetteville-during the ttempted buy of 150,000 am- hetamines. Both are also char :ed with delivery of controlled hospital's report ub stances. The state ;ays that Cordes is "not men- ally ill to a degree of legal rresponsibility at the time of he examination" and "probably vas not mentally ill at the time if the alleged offense." Cordes and Phillips are ex- lected to come to trial in late September or early October. Cordes is being returned to Washington County; Phillips is iree on bond. remains confident that the historic decision favoring environmental protection will be upheld. Following his .talk, Strickland showed a film about regional development i n Northwest Georgia's mountain country that concluded that regional guidelines must be used to assure satisfactory development of the area. Strickland said he thought the film related to the i n c r e a s i n g urbanization of Northwest Arkansas. gardless of the consequences, regardless of the sound, middle-ground alternatives thai might be worked out." Ford said although environmentalist's argue for zero growth' as the only course f o r world resource salvation, their goal was impossible because "man isn't built to vegetate 01 stagnate -- we like to progress we have ideas, we have hope and dreams of a better world and that better world include jobs and a better environ ment.... Ford said it was possible fo the nation to have both environ mental protection and economi expansion because of scientifi potential. He said his delerm nation to compromise when ci virpnmental and economic 1 pos lion's conflict "doesn't mean w are changing our unalterabl course to improve the environ ment. "It does mean stretching 01 the lime table in some cases. I does mean adjusting some o our long-range goals to accom odate the needs of the imme diate present. It does mea some trade-offs."
