Tucson Daily Citizen (Newspaper) - August 26, 1975, Tucson, Arizona jtttg0tt Uaifo Eitizen is likely VOLUME 105 NO 204 TUCSON ARIZONA TUESDAY AUGUST 26 J975 36 PAGES 15 CENTS WASHINGTON AP A new baby boom may be coming Our evidence suggests that the American birth rate may have bottomed out and that the country is likely to see a rise in repro duction two population experts say If it occurs the boom will come from couples who decided in the 1960s to postpone having their children a decision that pushed the US birth rate to its lowest level The two California statisticians say the women who are now in their 20s and 30s still intend to have children and will start mak ing up for lost time The two are June Sklar a research demographer at the Uni versity of California at Berkeley and Beth Berkov a demographic analyst for the California Department of Health They wrote about their findings in the current issue of Scientific magazine The birth rate declined to 19 children per woman in 1874 The most recent boom was in the 1950s when the rate was 37 The proportion of childless young women is now very high and there is evidence that they do not desire to remain childless permanently the demographers said They cite a number of factors for the decline in the 1960s and early 1970s among them a shift for smaller families a decline in marriage rates and more spacing between children Israel returning some Arab lands Western gas project far behind schedule By Associated Press The United States has fallen an estimated 24 months behind schedule on plans to launch a big refin ery complex to convert Western reserves of coal into synthetic pipeline gas Scene of the project is arid desert land on the Navajo Indian Reservation in New Mexico President Ford had set 1985 as the deadline for set ting up 20 synthetic fuel plants as part of Project Independence intended to make the United States free of the need of foreign fuels Scheduled pilot plants for the proposed gas refineries have yet to be begun how ever The most acute problem is the scarcity of water in the Western desert The chemical process of making gas from coal calls for con sumption of great amounts of water Navajo Indians who op pose the project complain that to obtain the water the proposed project must take it from the Navajos on whose reservation the coal will be mined Recent hydrologic studies have indicated overdraws of water by New Mexico from the Colorado River system whose water is allocated among seven states for local industry and irriga tion If the Southwest should be visited by a prolonged drought and ifit is proved that New Mexico has ex NEWMEXICO ceeded its allotment the state would probably be required to pay back water by sharply cutting down its use within the state Involved in the project are the El Paso Natural Gas Company and Wesco a joint venture of the Texas Eastern Transmission Corp of Houston and the Pacific Lighting Corp of Los An geles Wesco has a contract for 44000 acrefeet of water from the San Juan River a tributary of the Colorado El Paso Natural Gas has applied to buy rights to 28 500 acrefeet Dist 1 says plaintiffs unwilling to settle Two minority groups that have sued to deseg regate Tucson District 1 schools indicate an unwillingness to compromise in order to settle the case out of court the district board claimed today In a joint statement the five board members said however the district will continue efforts to settle out of court with the plaintiffs Mexican Americans for Equal Education and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People The board a month ago asked attorneys for the two organizations to submit in writing specif ic demands for desegregating schools as a first step in working out a compromise After receiving letters from NAACP attorney Rubin Salter Jr and Michael Zavala represent ing the MexicanAmerican group the board today accused the plaintiffs of holding stubborn ly to original demands the district says it cannot accept One of the demands is that any outofcourt settlement come in the form of a consent decree which technically omits any admission of guilt by the district but allows US District Court to enforce provisions of a settlement At this consent decree means we plead guilty to desegregating students said board member Helen Hafley and this we are not willing to do The board said the MexicanAmerican group is demanding equal educational opportunity for MexicanAmericans and the NAACP insists on busing of students to achieve racial balance J William Brammer the districts attorney declined to say that the two groups positions are a step backward in efforts to compromise The fact that we received a response at all is prog ress he told a reporter The boards statement said The school board has instructed its attorneys to explore further this matter with the plaintiffs in an effort to ascertain their willingness to enter into realis tic negotiations of all issues The board also criticized Zavala for writing My plaintiffs fully anticipate that this case will not be terminated through settlement The US Department of Health Education and Welfare announced in 1968 that it found pat terns of racial discrimination in District 1 About two years ago it ordered the district to begin work on effecting better racial balance in the schools

territory to Egypt In an interview on the state radio Foreign Minister Yigal Alion said Israel would lose oneseventh of the Sinai taken by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war to Egypt There would be a new and wider UN buffer zone Egyp tian forces and the United Nations now occupy about onetenth of the peninsula The threenation treaty would contain Egyptian pledg es to ease its economic and trade boycott and political and propaganda campaign against Israel The USIsrae li pact would spell out in creased American economic and arms aid for Israel Allon said the Egyptian strip on the east bank of the Suez Canal would be widened from 10 miles to 13 miles by taking over the current UN buffer zone Moreover Egyp tians would be given about four square kilometers of ter ritory now held by Israel to the south of the canal to give them easier access to the Abu Rodeis oil fields being ceded by the Israelis Allon said the Israelis would pull back even farther to give the United Nations a new and wider buffer zone of 11 to 28 miles in width The foreign minister said the Egyptians have agreed to Israeli demands for allowing US volunteer technicians to set up two manned early warning stations in

CENSUS ORIGIN FLASHCARD Census to ask What is your ethnic origin Do Latin American Pima County residents think their ethnic origin is MexicanAmerican Mexican Mexicano or Chicano In an effort to find out the US Census Bureau has devised a special form that includes these designations as well as Puerto Rican Cuban Central or South American and Other Spanish The form will be circulated this fall as part of a special Pima County head count aimed at countering what many feel was an undercounting of Pima Countys population especially Mexican American Chicano or whatever during the regular federal census five years ago Despite the fact that the form will be handed to all Pima Coun ty residents it gives those residents whose ancestors were from Oriental Mideast African or several other countries no choice as to their ethnic origin This was done purposely says a US census official because the form was intended to get only the perceptions of their origins from Spanishspeaking residents although as camouflage the form includes a total of 20 designations including English French Rus sian etc 1000 to be hired The card itself is written in English and Spanish Up to 1000 county residents will be hired by Oct 1 to carry the cards in the special count according to Bruce Postil of the county managers staff The middecade population count stems from claims that Tuc sons MexicanAmerican population was undercounted five years ago in the regular census Some local officials believe that the count will result in Pimas share of the total state population in creasing one per cent George Hearn head of special censuses in Washington said the card was designed specifically to enumerate Spanishspeaking origins as perceived by those interviewed Postil said Pima County census takers will ask the names of each occupant ages and the total number of residents at each address then will ask those interviewed to pick their own national origin a day Workers will be paid 12 cents per name taken in each house hold The census bureau feels that a good worker can earn about to a day Postil said Applicants who must be at least 21 years old and preferably bilingual will be required to pass arithmetic and reading tests according to Postil The census was to have begun this month but was delayed to the fall because a headcount now would have missed persons on vacation officials explained Applications are
