N*rthw**t Arkanjqj TIMES, Sun., Sept. T, 1974 rAVITTlVILLI. ARKANSAS Nader Establishes Capitol Tourist Aid By JEFF DAY 'TIMES Washington Bureau ·: WASHINGTON - In a town filled with tourisits and devoid -of anything but the most super- · ficial tours, the Washington visitor has always been pretty much on his own. · Concerned about the situation, " consumer advocate Ralph "Nader began to work on the ' problem, and has now set up his answer -- the Public Citl- 'zen's Visitors Center. " "Organized tourism in wash- inglon Is big business," s a y s "Nader. "I have observed more · t h a n the usual complaints about traffic congestion, confusion, indifference, price gouging and bad food. There is a widr spread feeling that the capital, ·while awesome...is none the less cold and out of reach. Few people would disagree with that statement. The streets are torn up in anticipation of a subway system to be opened in 1976. Traffic is snarled Cjeyond belief. Tlir air is thick with exhaust fumes The street corners abounc with taxi drivers claiming to be tour guides, with vendor? selling street maps, and sou venir stands with plenty of bad advice. A gaping hole in the floor of the Union Train Statior marks t h e government s only attempt to help the tourist. It 'is surrounded 'by a plywood "fence and small signs that warn '""Danger. Keep out." "· This is the National Visitors Center, created by an Act o! Congress. Like the subway, it ' 'will be finished in 1976. When he inaugurated the Public Citizen Visitors Center ' in May, Nader said, "We want the visitor to be given a diver sity of choices and personal in " volvements that can enrich our 'democracy and citizen aware " Located in a bank building 'In the city's northwest side, the · office reflects the center s phi -losophy of bringing governmen' -t oUie people. - There are no posters done in multicolor panavision of the "monuments or sights. There are no plastic John F. Kennedy ; busts. · Instead, there are two wall sized bulletin hoards plasleret ·with i n f o r m a t i o n o n · congressional, judicial and exe cutive proceeding. A third wall carries an nouncements of the center's ac ..tivities. Tables throughout the ' room are packed with leaflets on "how to visit your congress man," and how to visit the National Geographic Explorer; Hall. The center is no passive dis ··penser of information to tour Ists. Three times a day it shows movies on topics of curren interest. Staff members sched ·ule seminars on issues f r o m Impeachment to strip mining And they try to get the touris to events which interest h i n most. -.. CALENDAR AVAILABLE In addition to listing all con 'gressibnal hearings, publi hearings and even Watergat related trials and activities, tin 'organization prinls a calenda available Ihrmighout the city on events of special interest. -· A recent edition included an atomic energy commissio hearing on safety standards, a · speech, given at the qenter b Rep. Ken Heckler, D-W.Va ' :author of a controversial stri lino bill, and an evening of larnber music. For those who are interested n what their congressmen have seen doing, the center has pro- les on most of them which utline personal background nd voting records. And the center can tell you vhat committee your congress- lan is on. when it meets and ow to get there to see your ongressmau at work. Sometimes a tourist will express interest In a particular ield, such as airline safety, rop damage by insects or the nvironment. For them, the enter can set up meetings with nowledgeable spokesmen from tie federal agency concerned. Among the agencies the cen- er has established a liason with re; The Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Avia- ipn Administration, the En ·ironmenlal Protection Agency, he Department of the Interior and the Department of Defense LENGTHY LIST The list goes on, and coopera- ion from agencies has been excellent. One aide says this is aecaiise "They would hate to get bad publicity from Ralph." The Public Citizen Visitors Center, 1200 15th Street N.W, Vashinglon D.C. 20037 is a non commercial venture w h i c h charges no fees for its services but is supported by donations. If you write in advance, they ill be happy to send you a current copy of their brochure isling upcoming events, a n c answer any questions. Don't ask the center to fint a hotel for you, however. That's one function they do not per 'orm. The center is a new dimen sion to tourism here, which in ihe words of Director Fay Mauro is "trying to get the visi tor to realize that governmen is made of people. J u s t like limself." ' And the group seems lo di a good job. At a recent cour case involving a Watergate r igure, the center provoked th wrath of the press when it fillec about half the small courtroon h visitors, leaving no room :or media latecomers. "We're the only game in xiwn. The whole reason for u to be here is to provide jnfor mation for people who want h snow about the city," say; Mauro.

State Health Report Out LITTLE ROCK--A report 'Arkansas Health Status Evalu ation by bocioeconomic Strata,' available from the Arkansai Department of Health. The report, according t Marshall Burford. state co ordinator for t h o Ozark .Regional Commission healtl jroject, gives the incidence o infectious hepatitis, new active cases of tuberculosis, infection syphilis and gonorrhea for the five year period 1968-1972. Mortality statistics are given [or a three-year period from 1969 to 1971 on heart disease cancer, vascular lesions, pneu monia. diabetes meliitus, ma ternal mortality and accidenta deaths. Also included are liv births and Infant deaths for five-year period 1968-1972. Other information include fertility rates, immunizatio data, an£ statistics on healt facilities anq manpower. All data is by socioeconomi strata. Burford says this ap proach unmasks great di pairities in ths health s t a t u among different segments i the stale's population and wi give invaluable insight for ind viduals and agencies involve in health planning. The Capitol Report By Senator Morriss Henry The Legislative Council has reaffirmed its intention to allow the Public Building Authority lo spend up to $75 million for a state office buildings complex west of the present Capitol grounds in L i t t l e Rock. T h i s latest vote was taken ,'ifter s e v e r a l senators and "representatives and I began to publicly question both the constitutionality and the wis- -dom of allowing a small group of individuals to pledge state revenues for the next 30 years for this ambitious project. The Public Building Authority was created by the General Assembly in 1973 at the insistence of Governor Bumpers. The stated purpose was lo correlate "ihe needs of the state agencies "with a building program. Not ;fcven Rep. Tom Sparks, who ^sponsored the bill for Governor "Bumpers, realized at that time «t5he iu?l extent of the grant ot K»uthority or how large the riuildlflB program might be. :·:;. GOVERNOR BUMPERS took f;to Uw newspapers last week to ·"defend the plans for the capltol ·"'office complex. He said if the i'»iat« waits another year or two ''construction costs will rise even higher th«n they are today. Thui h« reasons that money iprat tUti year is money saved, CMftruction cost* are at an un- pne*d*nt«d Ugh. However, so «re bond Interest rates. T h e fend dMton. «rch[t«cls and Mtrt?fctti who will handle this Mtill Istue stand to make several million dollars. Even if the governor is rlgfr in his prediction, his thinkin does not address itself to th actual needs, but to the antic patcd needs of state agcncle the assumption being that sta agencies will grow even large Neither does his thinking a dress itself to the procedu which is being followed by th PBA to obligate future sla revenues which some oth future governor and legislate will have to try to raise. AS THE MATTER now Stan tho PBA can commit sta revenues for the next 30 yea and the only damper on its e thusiasm will be the Legislativ Council. Unlike the universitl and olher state agencies, it w not have to come back to tl entire General Assembly f approval of matching appr priations. Many of you have asked wh can be done to stop the proje or impose upon the PBA som effective controls. Some peop are considering the filing of taxpayer's suit to challenge t constitutionality of the enablin act and the procedure follows. Another possible cour of action Is to wait until t! General Assembly convenes January and attempt lo restrl the PBA's authority at th time but this will allow .the to spend the rest of the } million given to thorn in 1973. I Invite your comments. Bike Safety Might Save Child's Life Bicycle accidents may incase during the next few onlhs if molorists and cyclists ike don't keep an extra sharp okout for each other, Fayelte- lle Police Chief Hollis Spencer arned today. "There will be more bicycles riving to school tills year than ·er before," Spencer said. "It the responsibility of both the ,'clist and the motorist to iserve the rules of the road." Bicycle safety can't be a unelimes occupation, Spencer ointed out, saying he hopes tizens will seriously obey the ules of the road every day of ie year. With school in full swing after ie Labor Day holiday, both oungsters and rnotorists mu ^ 1 ·o aware of their responsibili- es. Spencer emphasized. This a dual responsibility, in that is not the failure of the bicy- e or automobile which causes erlous accidents, but both, he In Controversial Program Ex-Cons Now Guarding Prison aid, "Cyclist and motorist are oth at fault. We need improve lents in our safely education roigrams and not just in the chools, but for adults as well," e said. Chief Spencer ottered U tips T safer cycling: 1. Obey all applicable traffic egulations, signs, signals and larkings. Bicycles should be riven as safely as any road ehicle and they are subject to ie same traffic laws. KEEP RIGHT 2. Keep right, riding with raffic and not against it. Ride ingle file. Keep as close to the urb as is practical and try o avoid congested streets. 3. Watch out for drain grates, oft shoulders and other road urface hazards. Be especially areful of loose gravel and pot ,oles. 4. Watch out for car doors pening or cars pulling out into raffic. Many times a driver vill not see a bicycle before pening a door or pulling into traffic lane. 5. Don't carry passengers or packages that interfere with ·ision or control. 6. Never "hitch a ride" on - truck or other vehicle. 7. Be extremely careful at ntersections, especially when naking a turn. Most accidents lappen at intersections. Get off he bike and walk it across an nterscctlon. : 8. Use hand signals lo indi- ate turning or stopping. Let motorists know what you intend o do. 9. Protect yourself at nrgbt i r ith lights and reflectors in- tailed on the bike. 10. Drive a safe bike by in- peeling it regularly to insure ood mechanical condition. 11. Drive safely and watch ut for the other person. Bishop Names New Director Of Human Relations HARTFORD CONN. (AP) - tuben Jimenez. Age; 36.

Only a few months lat- ·r, at the maximum-security orison in Seniors, he founded he state prison system's first nitonomous drug rehabilitation 'enter.

Hanson calls a unique step from behind bars directly nto positions oF authority. Only two have lost their Jobs, Jiminez says one was fired, because his job performance worsened consistently. The other suddenly stopped reporting o work. Another two dozen of the 1,300 department employes have conviction records but came rom other jobs. The list of ex-cons on prison md jail staffs includes a depu ly warden, correctional officers and counsalors to addicts, in males and paroices. Among them are: --Dennis Guay, a computer programmer with a college de 5ree who beat. his wife's sister lo death with a bowljnig pin in 1963. His life sentence was com muted to eight years after he set up two educational pro !rams for fellow Inmates. Now le's a deputy jail warden. BLACK PANTHER -- Warren Kimbro, a former B l a c k Panther lieutenant charged in 1969, along with Na- ioinal Chairman Hobby G. Seale, with murder in the death of a Panther underling. Kimbro admitted firing the first of several shots Into the victim. Seale denied complicity In the crime and his trial ended in a hung jury. Kimbro went on to create several inmate programs and now runs a halfway house for former addicts. --Joseph Falso, also a heroin addict with a 12-year prison record. He learned institutional cooking while in the Somcrs prison, and with the help of his prison teacher won a Job as food supervisor and counselor at a drug-rehabilitation center. The hiring of ex-cons coincided with the opening of new educational and drug programs In the department, many ol them shaped by Inmates themselves. "We had so few dollars we were forced to spread the budget as well as we could for staff, then beat ,tho bushes for inmates," Manson recalled. First the inmates worked as volun teers, then they became paic employes. The commissioner emphasized that he never set a goal of hiring former Inmates. Each one proved his qualifications while in prison. "He hasn't just served time but he's been part of the (re habilltation) service," he said "I don't think we've ever hiret an ex-con just because he was an ex-con. One result of the prof towever, was that both in and employers saw prool Criminals "can make it added.

Not alone. He will be on the back seat of a tandem with a parfner who can see to steer the way. Tetley, 44, lost his sight while serving in the Kenya Regiment and fighting the Mau-Mau rebels in Ihe '50s.

He plans to visit a Salvation Army school for the blind at Th.lka and demonstrate some of the things a blind man can do ; -- including tandem cycling with a seeing partner. "I enjoy tandem riding," Tetley said. "I've been doing It for several years now, and wherever I go on my tandem we attract attention, "I thought that if we attracted notice in Africa, and It got around to the blind boys at the Salvation Army's school, it could do a lot of good." Tandem cycling has a long tradition among sports for the war-blinded' at St. Dunstan's. But this will be the first time anyone trained at the center has embarked on such a long ride. Tel ley has a regular cycling partner in Britain, Dennis Bray. But in Kenya he will be partnered by Edwin Rodrigues a 25 year-old teacher who wil meet him on arrival |n Nairobi. They plan to pedal out from Nairobi and ride 75 miles a day, making their way via Mombasa to Malindi in abou six days. The route lies through Tsavo, notorious for man-eating lions. "The lions stopped the con struction of a railway for two years by gobbling up the work ers," Tetley said, "We should run across every form of big game, so I am tak ing some (ire crackers to frighten them off."

Crops burn in the ground. Water holes go 'dry earlier and earlier each year. Livestock is dying for lack of pasturage.

They provide a safe, reliable and accessible source of water for hundreds of thousands of Voltaic villgers and their herds. No heavy equipment or advanced technology is involved in building the wells. It is basically a piek-and-shovel operation, wilh the villagers providing the labor. Funds for Ihe materials -- cement, molds and steel reinforcing rods -- come from OXFAM, the British- based famine relief organization, and the U.S. Agency for International Development. The Voltaic government pays for :he mason's salaries and transportation of supplies. The "Koum Nabas," or Wafer Chiefs, as Peace Corps well- d i g g e r s are affectionately called by the villagers, view their job as that of catalyst and organizer. They see to it that the cement and various tools are at the well sites when needed, They also train local masons in construction and maintenance techniaues.

Israel Plans No More Withdrawal From Arab Lands TEL AVIV (AP) -- Premier Yitzhak Rabin said Saturday there will be no further Israeli withdrawal from occupied Arab territories "without , . . significant progress toward peace." He said if Israel were to withdraw from the territories and set up a Palestinian state it would be "the beginning of the end of the Jewish state." Rabin told an audience of new immigrants the position of the Israeli government Is "no withdrawal" from the 1967 cease-fire linos "no establishment" of a Palestinian state --"but a confrontation from a position of strength In the quest for peace." H« said this could be accomplished cither through negotiations with each one of the Arab countries or through a transition in stages.
