On Wilderness Act Anniversary Deadline For Park Review Today not only marks (tie lOlh anniversary of the IBG'I Wilderness Acl bill also the deadline for completing a review of the additional millions of wild federal acres submitted for wilderness protection. With Preident Lyndon Johnson's signing of the 1964 Act the National Wilderness Preservation , System was initialed to govern the designated wilderness areas. The Act itself required a review of all designated national forest primitive areas as well as roadless areas in the national park system and the national wildlife refuge system. From Ihese reviews, more than 100 proposals for wilderness areas have been sub- milcd. Tlie ones selected as such would join Ihe 91 areas a l r e a d y operaling as a part of the wilderness preservation system. The 91 units t h a lhave been approved by Congress over Ihe past decade consist of approximately 11 million acres, ranging in size from the 1,243,659 - acre Selway - Bitlcrroot Wilderness in Idaho and Montana to the three-acre Pelican Island Wilderness off Florida's east coast. The 1964 Acl, often referred lo as a l a n d m a r k law, was the result of a national movement spearheaded by the Wilderness Society. AREAS CONSIDERED Several areas under con- sideration for wilderness preservation are included in an eastern wilderness bill already passed by the Senate. This bill w o u l d designate 13 wilderness units and order a study of about 40 more in national forests east of the Rocky Mountains. The Wilderness Society, in its most recent bulletin, states that "this would help balance the heavily western focus of the wilderness program to dale." With Ihe 1971 Alaska Nalive C l a i m s Settlement Act, Congress laid the groundwork for future wilderness areas in Alaska. More than 80 million acres of federal land in that slate are being considered- as possible addilions to the national park, wildlife, refuge, Society report, Ihe 1961 Acl ] s Gov. Dale Bumpers, ultimately expected to protect about 60 million acres in at casl 42 slates. Wilderness is lefined in the Acl as " vhere the earth and Says Gals Should Be Treated Sweetly Miss Arkansas Gives Women* Libbers Fits an area its cmn- nunity of live are unlrammcled y man. where man himself is visitor who does nol remain."

She says things like, "I like beiirg a woman. We should be treated sweetly because we always are sweet." She also laughs a lot. "I always thought that when I was 21 I'd he a mature, sophisticated woman. But I slill feel like a teen-ager," she giggled. Then, she turned lo a 'middle-aged hostess and asked sas, you're so pretty!'" I love had enough marriage proposals to qualify 'icr as one of the last of the Southern belles. "I've been asked at least seven limes," she said, hut that's not counting proposals like the one she got in the 10th grade.

"1 never heard it like that before." A street in this resort Is 'spelled A-R-K-A-N-S-A-S and called Our Kansas. But Miss Pope, a green-eyed ·beauty from Hot Springs, doesn't seem to mind. "The people on the Board walk said, 'Oh, Miss Our-Kan- it," she laughed. Miss Pope has married, explained. , dale 'cm for awhile, and lh,en they say, 'Why can't we get married?' "Maybe it was just teasirrg around. They seemed to have meant it, but 1 don't know.. I'm just a girl." Miss Pope attended the Gulf Coast Bible College in Houston in 1971-72, a school she says was unofficially known as the Gulf Coast Bridal College. "Most of the guys come out preachers. Most, of the girls are in there to snag a husband," she said. She worked as a credit clerk in Houston for a year and has also been a secretary. She is crazy about football in general and the Razorbacks especially, and she gave a "soooceeeey! 1 call to prove it. Lest anyone be lempted to make serious proposal No. Miss Pope said she is in love now. Although it's not official yet, she said she may be engaged by Christmas time to a young construction company owner in her hometown. "I think I've found the right one," she, laughed, "If he play; his cards right."

Jack Williams of Arizona signed an extradition ordered to return Tyger to Arkansas Friday despite the contention of Tyger and his friends hat he had been rehabilitated iince he fled the prison in 1968.
