At the same time House Republican Leader Edgar Holden Davenport, Thursday appealed to Iowa’s congressional delegation to consider increasing speed limits across the state in view of the diminishing effects of the energy crisis. Some 7,200 citations were issued during the first month of the 55 miles-per-hour speed limit, compared with 4,200 under the old speeds in 1973, highway patrol officials said. The federal government had given states until March I to change to the slower speed limit or face loss of highway funds. Patrol figures show a significant increase in the number of speed citations given to truckers. Nearly 900 trucks were stopped last month, compared with 251 in March 1973 — an increase of 246 percent. Holden said he will appeal personally to members of the congressional delegation when they appear before the Iowra legislature next week. In a letter to Iowa’s representatives and senators, Holden said the “very restrictive 55-mile-an-hour limit is causing frustration and resentment by the motorists.” He said Iowans are being asked to make greater reduction than eastern states, where they needed to reduce speeds five or ten miles an hour. In contrast, he said, Iowans have been forced to reduce their driving speed 30 percent or by 20 miles an hour on the interstates. Holden suggested a return to the prior speed limits in a two-step process. The first step would be to allow speed limits to be increased to ten miles an hour below the previous limit. The second step would be a full return to the former speed limits at a later date. Campaign Trail sacked their home and made off ISPIRG. American Heritage Dancers Dancers at Cornell MT.

E. Arends found Galley Wanatee, 43, of the Mesquakie Indian settlement, guilty of unlawful possession of deer meat in his deep freeze without a valid license. Arends fined W’anatee $50 and $6.50 costs. The $56.50 may be posted as appeal bond if Wanatee wishes to appeal to a higher court. He has ten days to file an appeal. The charge was filed against Wanatee by State Conservation Officer Robert Mullen, Toledo. It brought up the question of whether the Indians on the settlement near Tama have the right to hunt and fish on their lands whenever they w’ant to. The Indians say they have that right. All Crimes Arends, in his findings of fact and law, stated. “This court holds Sac and Fox (tribal members) in Iowa are subject to all crimes and misdemeanors set forth in the laws of Iowa. There is no authority for them to pick and choose the laws they will obey. It seems they do not question the state’s jurisdic-t i o n in serious offenses against state law, but do question authority in certain offenses.” The charge filed against Wanatee was a misdemeanor, not a felony. Arends, finding the Sac and Fox in Iowa hold the settlement lands by purchase, said they have equal but no greater rights under the law than other land owners as regards hunting laws. Although no charge was made of a hunting violation, ! the question of illegal posses- j sion is inter-related, Arends said. In a hearing in March, Mullen testified he and other conservation officers obtained a search warrant after they saw a deer hide outside Wanatee’s residence after the hunting season had closed. He had received reports previously of deer poaching on the settlement. Deer Hide freezer disclosed two packages of deer meat in clear kages of deer meat in clear plastic bags. Wanatee admitted to Mullen that it was deer meat. The deer hide outside contained shotgun pellets. Wanatee testified at the hearing that the meat in the freezer was from a deer killed by his 16-year-old son Dec. I, the first day of the deer-hunting season. The son had no hunting license. Arends, in his findings, found the Iowa code provides that owners or tenants of land and their children may hunt without a license on such land except as to deer. Only one of the said members may hunt deer and then may kill only one animal, and must apply in writing for a license, issued free, by the state conservation commission. The regulation further provides that any person having unlawful possession of game may hold it for ten days after the close of the season and a permit to hold the game longer may be obtained from the commission. Neither Wanatee nor his son had licenses or permits. Wanatee’s attorney at the hearing asked for a directed verdict, claiming that (I) The conservation officer had no authority to go onto the settlement and make an arrest; (2) Game laws do not apply to Indians on the settlement land; (3) Lack of jurisdiction of the state of Iowa over crimes committed on the settlement. Magistrate Arends overruled the motion. Always Hunted Kenneth Youngbear, 65, a member of the Tribal Council 16 years, testified that the Indians own their land, held in trust for them by the U. S. department of the interior, and they have always hunted and fished without licenses within their boundaries whenever they wished. Arends, for almost three weeks after the hearing in his court, has studied and researched the case. He said he found the act of June 30, 1948, vested complete jurisdiction in the state of Iowa to enforce the full range of its criminal laws on the Sac and Fox reservation, or settlement, as it is more accurately called. The fact that the federal government may have concurrent ju risdictions of certain crimes is immaterial, Arends said. In his findings, Arends said, “History records the state of Iowa and Tama county have exercised jurisdiction for at least IOO years. The first reported serious crime involved the State of Iowa vs. Black Wolf. On June 13, 1874, Black Wolf was arrested on the settlement by Deputy Sheriff Bartlett for allegedly firing a pistol three times into the back of the head of a visting Pawnee, which resulted in his death. “At that time, Man-an-wan-e-ka, son of the distinguished Chief Poweshiek, was chief of the Sac and Fox. Since then, apparently, the state has taken jurisdiction at least of serious crimes.” A section of the Iowa code provides for an additional deputy sheriff, whose principal duty is law' enforcement on tho Sac and Fox settlement. Part of his salary is paid by the state and part by Tama county. The present deputy is Clyde Wanatee, a Arends said there are many misconceptions concerning the Sac and Fox Indians. In the hearing, the defense counsel referred to them as Aborigines. Actually they are immigrants, Arends said in the summary of his decision. “The Sac Indians came from New York state, where they had been at war with the Iroquois and had become so weak that they joined the Fox tribe in the St. lawrence river valley. “The Fox had been decimated in the French and Indi os    4    , this inquiry without further de- son    is    to    show    at    that    time    why    man needs 24 hours just to read    ......» c. -v tx n his    probation    should    not    be    re-    the tax guide from the IRS.”    vjrisky (D-Iowai Using the committee’s sub-Feld Favors    poena powers “is demanded by Capital Punishment    ,the "wful]>' inadequate    volun- n    tary response we ve been    wait- Michael J.
