Leubsdorf MAI NA KEA, Hawaii (AP) In office nearly six months, Vice president Ford has been able to bask until now in general approval set off largely by his friendly mid open personality. Muted Criticism But if President Nixon’s \\ atergate problems grow worse anc! impeachment moves closer to reality, Ford's standing could be diminished slightly by his increasingly strong expressions of faith in Nixon’s innocence and a refusal to make any broad judgments on other alleged administration scandals bevond the Watergate breakin and coverup. Since meeting with Nixon IO day s ago, Ford has muted criticism of the President. He says the White House transcripts 'don't confirm sainthood on anybody” but told Hawaii Republicans Friday night that Nixon is innocent “and we should support him.” Another aspect of Ford the I fact that his views on major issues stamp him as a virtual ideological carbon copy of Nixon—has drawn little attention, more because of preoccupation with Watergate than anything else. The vice-president has spoken out strongly for continued U.S. i military aid for South Vietnam, endorsed congressional efforts to ban all school busing and has generally supported administration policies with the smile fervor he showed in his 8U years as house Republican leader. In a few conversations with reporters, he has indicated a Ford administration would be a scandal-free continuation of Nixon’s. While changes in the White House staff would be sweeping, most other main officials would remain. Stick to Duties However, Ford has refused to speculate openly on this prospect, preferring to stick to his vice presidential duties — primarily the self-imposed speaking schedule that will have carried Coal Leases Reported Canceled; Say Companies Cheated Indians hun more than 7(1,000 miles into 28 states before he returns to Washington at dawn Tuesday. He took two days off at this exclusive resort this weekend, but only after a hectic 15-hour day in Honolulu Friday. His schedule railed on him to fly to Tacoma, Wash., for three ap-pearances Monday night and then to make five separate one-day trips out of Washington starting Wednesday. The audiences that have heard him, ranging from nonpolitical civic groups and university graduating classes to Republican contributors, have responded with virtually unanimous praise. But criticism of Ford’s varied statements on Watergate have begun to appear in newspaper editorials and at his news conferences. requiring him to deny Friday that he has been “zigzagging” in criticizing White House tactics amid expressions of faith in the President’s innocence. spokesman for Commonwealth Sigma Phi will meet Tuesday at at 2 p.m. by the city clerk for ,oi/awren,(V Quac^e    stopped his    Edison of ^Chicago    sakt^    Our 6:30 p.m in the home of Mrs. I carpeting to be placed in the! . mode‘ car t0    wa^ Lynn Johnson, 2325 Twenty- public library.

Indians have charged that the Bureau of Indian Affairs cheated them in negotiations for coal mining rights to their lands. The leases, dating to 1969, are potentially worth billions of dollars to four major energy corporations and two groups of land speculators. The interior department's reported decision surprised many was forced to make a voltage cutback last Friday when the temperature hit 92 degrees.

Pohlman. 27, was the driver of one cycle which was involved in a collision with a car driven by Dr. John Tyrrell of Manchester. A second motorcycle, driven by Edwin Chambers, jr., of Manchester, then struck both the Pohlman cycle and Tyrrell car. Officers said Dr. Tyrrell was turning into an alley from which the two cyclists were emerging. Chambers was in good condi-t i o n Monday at Delaware county hospital. observers because it was considered both radically “pro-In-dian” and a blow to the Nixon administration’s plans for rapid coal development. “Premature” Rep. Melcher, a Montana Democrat, whose district embraces the largely barren. 415,000-acre reservation east of Billings, reported tho decision in a statement released by his Billings office. Officials of the department, who had expected Interior Secretary Morton to announce a decision momentarily after separate meetings Wednesday with representatives of the tribe and the leaseholders, challenged iMelcher’s version of the depart- i (ment’s action. But officials did! not deny that Morton was likely to favor the Indians’ petition for a lease cancellation. One top official here called t h e announcement “premature.” saying, “An outright lease cancellation is a strong option, but there is no definite decision.” Companies ‘'Seething” But by telephone Melcher insisted he had been “privately advised that the leases will be declared invalid.” He said he had “given congratulations” to tribal leaders. The 4.000 impoverished Northern Cheyenne own at least two billion tons of the low-sulphur formation in eastern Montana, the largest single block of coal in the U. S. The leases involved cover the choicest half of the In-1 dians' coal reserves. The leasing companies, with a $2.7 million investment there to| I date, are the Peabody Coal Co.| of St. Louis, the nation’s largest! coal producer, the Consolidation Coal Co. of Pittsburgh, the sec-| ond largest; American Metal Climax, Inc., with headquarters in New York; the Chevron Oil Co. of San Francisco, a subsidiary of Standard Oil of California, and two smaller Montana-based leaseholders. Spokesmen for the companies could not be reached, but one interior department aide said (that company executives! learned last week that a decision for the Indians was likely and were “seething.” VISIT THE MARION OFFICE Complete Circulation And Want Ad Service. 743 loth STREET Marion Office Phone 398-8430 Or You May Dial 398-8234 To Order Your Want Ad.
