WASHINGTON - The Nixon administration admitted
yesterday that its goals for economic growth and retarding
inflation for 1971 are now unattainable.
Paul McCracken, chairman of the President's Council
of Economic Advisors and a University economics professor
on leave of absence, formally threw in the towel at the
House-Senate Economic Committee's midyear economic

* State, Indians discuss fishing
LANSING (/) - "My people
gave the white man a' place to
sleep on the East Coast-then he
took over the entire United
States," orated the dignified, 70-
year-old Indian spokesman.,
"I can stand so much pushing.
then I stop," added Elliot Pamp
of Battle Creek.
This was the determined tone
expressed by Indians at a meet-
ing called yesterday to discuss
Indian treaty rights in Michigan.
The State Department of Nat-
ural Resources (DNR) and sports
fishermen have been complaining
that Indian commercial fisher-
men are taking too many lake
trout and other fish from the
Great Lakes following a Michi-
gan Supreme Court decision up-
holding their treaty rights.
Although the meeting, called
by the Michigan Indian Commts-
sian, wtas inconclusive, the two
sides did agree to hold further
"There is excessive withdrawal
of lake trout," insisted Warren
Shapton, deputy director of DNR.
"We are seriously concerned.
We can't sit by idly and let it
continte. Measures still have to
be taken to see that it is stop-
"That is not the issue." coun-
tered Indian Commission mem-
ber Mark Perrault of L'Anse.
*"The DNR and the attorney
generals office refuse to admit
that Indians have thsis fishing
right. Meanwhile the DNR and
the sportsmen's clubs are get-
ting the people up in arms over
the Indians," Perrault said.
I n d i a n Commissioner John
Winchester of Belleville said the
situation in Michigan is getting-
as serious as in the state of Wash-
ington, where there is a similar
dispute over fishing rights. Win-
chester said he was beaten up by
state troopers there, and one of
his best friends was shot by a
After Indians complained that
white fishermen were cutting
their nets, Shapton told the meet-
ing that if there is a similar sit-
uation of Indians shooting deer
this fall, white people would
probably react in te same man-
"With your help." Perrault
shouted at him.
The last census, Perrault said,
showed there are actually only
16,854 Indians in Michigan. They
constitute no great threat to fish
in the Great Lakes, he contended.
State Sen. Stanley Novak (D-
Det.) told the group he was sick
and tired of seeing Indians push-
"But I don't think they should
go out and rape the lakes so
there are no fish left for the In-
dians or white men," he said
"There's got to be a way to
make this thing work. We've got
to cooperate. Otherwise there is
going to be a fatality," pleaded

While the Hollywood film industry seems
to be dying, independent film groups are
forming - not only to exploit old tradi-
tions, but to open the movie media and
present what is now going on.
One such group, the Ann Arbor Women's
Film Collective plans to overcome the 'Doris
Day-mythical maiden image', while at the
same time replacing the old standards of the
role of women in the motion-picture heir-
archy with positive options for women in
the film industry.
In spiration for the group's project came
from the Women's Film Festival June 21.
Films from across the nation were shown
which contrasted the stereotyped female
with a real, self-fulfilling woman. With this
impetus, Lydia Kleiner placed an adver-
tisement calling for women interested in
making a movie, and at the same 'time
women for women
learning the technical skills necessary to
make a film.
A core of 15 women, as a result of Klein-
er's ad, has been meeting since the end of
June. They began learning the technical
skills of 8mm movie camera operation,
and plan on learning the operations for
The desire of the women involved is to
learn together, and then to exercise the
knowledge in a collective sense rather than
a static heirarchy. "Although efficiency may
be slowed down, we hope to avoid compe-
tition and snobbery between the different
positions. Besides, this system will encour-
age give-and-take situations," according to
Ellen Frankel, one -of the Collective's or- ~
