Alaska WASHINGTON (AT) The U.S. Interior Department an- nounced today an agreement with tile state of Alaska con- cerning 40 million acres of land claimed by both (he state and federal governments. It provides that Alaska "re- linquished Us claim to a sub- stantial part of the acreage m dispute and the interior depart- ment agrees to make certain key areas available for state the announcement said. Some of the land will be for Alaskan natives. A "memorandum of under- standing" was signed by Inte- rior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton and Alaska Gov. Wil- liam A. Eaan. Alaska brought suit in May, contending that Morton had ex- ceeded his authority in with- drawing 42 million acres for various federal and native uses out of 77 million acres the state had requested in January. The state had requested that the 77 million acres be made immediately available for its selection. Alaska holds title to about five million acres and has control over about 17 mil- lion acres, leaving unsatisfied most of the land total it is en- titled to under provisions of the act that made Alaska a state. Under the agreement an- nounced today, the suit is dis- missed "with prejudice." Morton and Egan said the settlement "mil permit the complex and interlocking proc- ess of land actions by Alaska natives, the state and the fed- eral government to proceed un- der the terms of both the 1971 Native Claims Settlement Act and the Statehood Act without needless delay."

ENDORSED DRILLING The stale division of nil and gas conservation endorsed the drilling and exploration propos- als. Raskin says little is known about (he lake's nature and studies should be made to de- termine whether there are risks in granting the leases. R. J. Fuchs, manager of the Lakepoint plant of Hardy Salt Co., said he was not officially notified of the hearing, but had previously written the land board to express his "uncon- ditional opposition to such oper- ations on the Great Salt Lake.
