By The Associated Press,
URBAN AND TRIBAL INDIANS jammed a Senate hearing
room yesterday urging repudiation of a 1953 federal policy aimed at
freeing Indians from their ward status.
Leo Vocu, executive director of the national Congress of Ameri-
can Indians, told the Senate Interior Committee that for some per-
sons in the 1950s, the policy meant getting Indians off what they saw
as the public dole; for others it was a chance to force insophisticated
Indians to sell their land and resources wealth.
Robert Jim, chairman of the Yakima Tribal Council in Washing-
ton, said the termination policy sent thousands of Indian youth into
an urban society for which they were unprepared and that urban
areas were even less prepared for them.
This has been partly responsible for some of the dreay statistics1
of Indian life, he said: 90 per cent live in improper housing, 40 to 75
per cent of the adults are out of work and the average age of mortality
is 43 years, compared to 68 years for whites.
BRITAIN'S PARLIAMENT began debate yesterday over entry
into the Common Market with an oratorical clash between Con-
servative Prime Minister Edward Heath and opposition Labor"
leader Harold Wilson.
Heath hailed the promise of a single market in Europe as a way
for European science and industry to match achievement of the3
U.S. and the Soviet Union.,
Wilson challenged entry, saying the benefits of membership inr
the Common Market had been undermined by the government's,
acquiescence to unfavorable conditions.

Buckley says
Review story
was a hoax'
NEW YORK {A - With a
broad grin, editor William
F. Buckley Jr. revealed yes-
terday that publication in
his National Review of so-
called s e c r e t Vietnam
documents was a hoax.
Buckley said the documents
were composed by editors of the
magazine "ex nihilo"-out of
nothing.
The intended purpose, Buckley
told a news conference, was to
demonstrate in regard to the ear-
lier Pentagon papers "that the
Pentagon and the CIA are not
composed of incompetents . . .
that forged documents would be
widely accepted as genuine pro-
vided their content was inherent-
ly plausible . . . that the chal-
lenge in Southeast Asia was an
aspect of the global challenge to
the West, not a local affair."
Later, Buckley told a reporter
at his Manhattan apartment: "If
the advice given in the magazine
had been followed, we wouldn't
be in Vietnam today. The point is
that the papers, or something
like them, must have been writ-
ten. Therefore, one concludes
that the difficulty was not that
the Pentagon and the CIA gave
LBJ bad advice, but tliat BJ
didn't take good advice"
Buckley's revelation of the
hoax came after suspician arose
when several persons listed as au-
thors of the printed documents
couldn't recall writing then. One
flatly denied authorship credited
to his name.
Buckley founded the National
Review in 1954 to further his po-
litical outlook, which he de-
scribed as radical conservative.
"We mentioned a lot of people
we didn't have to mention,"
Buckley said. "In that sense, we
invited discovery. We wouldnt
have been surprised if within two
hours after it appeared it had
been called a hoax. We were
more surprised than anybody at
reading . . . that not even Dean
Rusk had been able to deny what
was printed."
Ecology unit
sets up can
recycling site
A permanent site for the recy-
cling of metal cans has been
opened by the Ecology Center.
Establishment of a permanent
site, according to Ecology Cen-
ter director Bill sopper, repre-
sents a move toward "compre-
hensive recycling in Ann Arbor."
As part of the program, a
permanent collection container
will be located at the Westate
Shopping Center, net to Ar-
iana.
Area residents can bring cans
to this location every Saturday
starting July 31. from 10 am.
through 6 p.m.
Newspapers can also be de-
posit.d at this location,
Cans brought to the collec-
tion area, however, should be
cleaned and crushed with labels
removed, according to center
officials.
Glass can be brought to this
site- Sunday through Thursday
from 10:00 am. through 5:30
p.m.

With the establishment of the
the new metal can center in
addition to the glass recycling
center, "it is now possible for
area residents to dispose of
most of their solid waste in an
ecological way," according to
Kopper.

consensus reached at a meeting
of the board earlier this year.
Bulkley said he is presently
drawing up a proposal for a per-
manent policy on the question
of censorship to be presented to
the board at its August meeting.
He added that his proposal is
"not meant to do away with un-
derground newspapers or stifle
differing views on life styles or
political questions."
Despite - the store's ban on
"sexist" books, Rock said, many
books considered to be "sexist"
are ordered and sold, including
works by Henry Miller and D.H.
Lawrence.
These books are excepted, Rock
explained, because they have
what he termed, "redeeming so-
cial value."
However, the Cellar does not
apply its "redeeming social val-
ue" criteria to books which con-
tain passages which deal with
firearm use.
"Steal this Book," Rock ad-
mitted, "has only 41/2 pages"
which discuss bombs and fire-
arms.

"If the thgory is that we should
carry whatever students want,"
Rock stated, "we'd be carrying
the Sensuous Woman-I could
have sold 250 copies of that
book."
In a survey conducted yester-
day afternoon by The Daily, Ul-
rich's Slater's Centicore and
Follett's bookstore spokesmen all
stated that they had carried Steal
This Book but were out of copies
pending the delivery of new or-
ders.
Only Centicore had copies of
The Anarchist Cookbook in stock,
but an Ulrich's spokesman said
that his store would take orders
for that book from their cus-
tomers.
"All printed materials should
be made available," Cohen said.
A special meeting of the execu-
tive committee of the board has
been called for Saturday to dis-
cuss whether to lift the ban on
Steal This Book, according to
board members.
