He demonstrates rather real Appeal to residents on the East and West coasts to the College educated and to Independent voters. This is precisely the same pattern of support Baker receives in his role As interrogator on the Senate watergate committee. In other words bakery a past voting record and background obviously is counting far less than his recent role in the watergate investigation. The Senate committees 62 per cent positive score in the country As a whole rises to 70 per cent in the East 69 per cent in the suburbs 66 per cent among Young people under 30, 68 per cent among people with some College education 73 per cent among business executives and 67 per cent among those with incomes of $15,0 k and Over. It is apparent that the Senate watergate committee has made a deep impression with the More affluent educated and younger segments of the american people. In the 1972 election it was the ability of Richard Nixon to penetrate these same groups that turned a close election into a landslide. Be Able to develop an anti pollution device More acceptable than the catalytic converted system. Muskie whose Public works subcommittee wrote the act. And other backers have noted Public concern Over proposals issued by the environmental Protection Agency for implementation of the Law. For example Epa has proposed pollution fighting transportation controls that could eliminate the automobile from los Angeles streets and could reduce driving in sections of new Jersey by 68 per cent by 1977. In other areas gasoline sales the most disputed Section of would be limited on Street the act requires that automobile manufacturers produce a virtually pollution free engine by Jan. I 1976. It is that deadline that prompted in part the Senate movement for a review. At the request of original sponsors of the clean air act the Senate is expected shortly to authorize $300,000 for the National Academy of sciences to review the health findings on which the 1976 deadline was based. The key question is whether Congress placed too High a Premium on clean air while ignoring economic and social disruptions that might result. When the Bill was being debated 22 years ago its chief author sen. Edmund s. Muskie a Maine said repeatedly that the measure was based on Protection of Public health and not on economic or technological feasibility. But now some environmentalists Are taking the position generally adopted by automobile manufacturers that Given More time the Industry might parking banned and idling of Auto engines restricted. In announcing the proposals Epa acting administrator Robert w. Fri conceded they might cause disruptions. But he said he had no alternative because of provisions in the Law requiring nationwide clean air standards by mid-1977. A Ltd our regular Satur Day morning Mcdonald movie parly.

A a there san atmosphere of distrust or disagreement or dissension among the people themselves a he went on. A some were in favor of what happened some disagreed. Consequently it brought people into conflict. Internal family structures have been disrupted because Brothers and Sisters aunts and uncles have started taking sides on positions of the people involved. On feb. 27, a led by the american Indian movement swept into the Village took Over the trading Post and began the confrontation with government marshals and Fri agents who set up roadblocks around the Hamlet. The siege went on and on. Before it ended with an agreement on May 8, two indians and two Federal agents were wounded and two occupiers a Frank Clearwater identified later As a White named Frank Clear and Lawrence Lamont an Oglala Sioux a were shot dead. Now nearly three months later a key Issue raised by aim continues to Divide the Oglala Sioux. Aim leaders Russell Means and Dennis Banks demanded that tribal chairman Richard Wilson be ousted and new elections be held. They also called for the removal of Bureau of Indian affairs supt. Stanley Lyman. Wilson who Calls aim Mem a e r s hoodlums and extortionists said in a recent interview that he expects to seek re election in january despite several impeachment attempts during his 13 months in office. A they aim have a whole lot of grievances but no solutions a said Wilson. A i think Only the elected constitutional officers can have the solutions. A aim did no to help us one bit a he added. A if there a been any change since the occupation its been for the a at election time the atmosphere is going to be real tense depending on what happens with the tribal legislative system a said holy Rock. A i think those who Are opposed to constitutional government Are go ing to make an aggressive bid to take charge of tribal government and practice the traditional but he said the traditional form of government advocated by some pro aim people is almost completely forgotten. A some practice a Loose form of traditional government for example following the hereditary line of chiefs. But they Are mainly going through the motions. Those that want traditional government Are trying to reach Back and grasp something about As illusive As a fish that one tries to catch by the hand. It All adds to the one of the terms of the settlement was that White House representatives come to the reservation to discuss creation of a presidential commission to study the 1869 treaty granting the Sioux All land in South a but a teacher at Pine Ridge Eva and Paul red Star Are said students appeared to be among several displaced More excited about aim a year ago. A aim sort of wore out its Welcome a he said. While the debate goes on so does the rebuilding of damaged property and for some it is a particularly bitter experience.

Nothing major has come from the talks. Another Issue raised by aim was the Reform of the Bureau of Indian affairs and changes in Federal Indian relationships. Several congressional hearings have been held but no major changes have been implemented. Holy Rock who was part of a task Force that studied the Issue said the concluded that although it had faults the Bia was necessary to the future of the Indian. A we have a lot of problems with our Young people a holy Rock said. A they have a lot of Energy and things they observed at wounded knee fit into their attitudes. They see an Avenue for that Energy and whether it is right or wrong it is appealing. A the takeover seems to have brought an increase in an attitude Adverse to Law enforcement and the judicial system As practice by the tribe under constitutional fire.
