House Committee passes
draft registration

Court: Bred fish not
included in Indian pact

WASHINGTON (AP)-Renewal of
draft registration for all 18-year-old
men was overwhelmingly approved
yesterday by the House Armed Ser-
vices Committee.
The committee rejected 30-4 an ef-
fort to take the renewed registration
out of a $42 billion weapons

cleared for House action by a 35-2
require all young men who turn 18
after Dec. 31, 1980, to register in case
the draft itself is ever reinstated in a
war or emergency.
The provision specifies men, but it
requires the president to recom-
mend back to Congress details on
how he wants to carry out
registration and whether women

should be included.
President Carter has taken no
position on whether draft
registration should be renewed..
Harold Brown has said he still hopes
the present Selective Service
System can be beefed up to meet
war mobilization requirements
without renewing registration.
The amendment to knock draft
registration out of the bill was made
by Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-
Colo.), who said the committee
should wait and decide the entire
issue of how Americans would be
required to fight any future war.
Schroeder is co-sponsoring a bill to
require all young people to serve in
wartime either in the military or
some civilian alternative service.

resume fishing in Lake Michigan and
Grand Traverse Bay as soon as a tribal
imposed ban on such fishing expires

May 15, a spokesman said yesterday.
Elmer LeBlanc said tribal leaders
who have pledged to continue the ban
beyond next Tuesday are playing
"I DON'T KNOW why they agreed to
the ban in the first place," LeBlanc
said. "They can't close the bays to
fishing just on their own concerns."
LeBlanc said at least seven Indian
crews are ready to start fishing in
currently banned areas following Fox's
The only way to overturn unlimited
Indian fishing rights would be through
an act of Congress abrogating portions
