Bear Dunes region. Jensen's complete statement was as follows: "The Citizens' Council can take no position on Congressman Grit- fin's Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park proposal until the bill has been introduced, and there has been sufficient time for tho member- ship to study its provisions. "The official position of the coun- cil has been to oppose tho type of legislation embodied in S. 2153 and S. 3525, and on July 1C last, the council issued a statement of policy setting forth seven basic objec- tions. "From the press dispatches on the Griffin proposal, it would ap- pear that this new bill meets a great many or perhaps most of the fundamental objections that have been repeatedly voiced.

Hart noted Interior Secretary Stewart L. Uriall has proposed a park in the lower Michi- gan area. His own "medium-sized Bear" makes the best sense. Hart said, "and I will continue to press for it." Ho said he planned to introduce proposal was that it included little of the high ground overlooking the Lake Michigan shoreline. The high ground would be subject to inten- sive pressure for "neon-lighted com- mercial, Hart said. his bill about Feb. 1, and hoped for senate hearings in March or April.
