House passes wildlife land bill
WASHINGTON (AP( - The House
yesterday passed and sent to the Senate
a bill carving out 120 million acres of
Alaska for national parks, wilderness
areas and wildlife refuges, legislation
which environmentalists are calling the
conservation bill of the century.
And while the bill has President Car-
ter's top environmental priority, it is in-
tensely opposed by many development
interests, some large unions and most
of the officials of Alaskan state and
THE BILL passed 277-31. After the
vote, the bill's chief manager, Rep.

Perhaps the pedestal serves as a kind
of security for the building and its
inhabitants, a protection from the
student uprisings that were occuring at
the time the building was erected.
Maybe the windows are pinched and
impenetrable-looking because the
higher-ups wanted to insure against
any possible window smashing by
Perhaps the entire administration
simply embarked on a grandoise ego
trip and decided to separate from and

But Rep. Don Young, a Republican
and Alaska's sole House member, saw
the bill as "bad legislation . . . a
disaster to the state and the nation."
In one swoop, the bill would double
the size of the nation's national park
and wildlife refuge systems, adding
units often larger than states in the
IN ITS FINAL House form, the bill
would create from about 120 million
acres of federal land in Alaska 10 new
national parks, additions to three
existing parks, 12 new wildlife refuge
and additions to four others.
Further portions of 22 rivers would be
preserved as part of the national wild
and scenic river system.
Of the 120 million acres, about 61
milion acres would be designated as
wilderness, off limits to major
development unless approved by future
sessions of Congress. Another four
million acres of national forest lands in
southeastern Alaska would be
designated as wilderness.
Young and other opponents conten-
ded that too much of his state's poten-
tial resource wealth was being set aside
or locked up to the detriment of Alaska
and the country's economic future.

The famous sunrise service on Mount

organized the event.
"Probably the most famous sunrise
service of all is held each year at the
Hollywood Bowl," says Ms. Hopkins.

a product of the stability of its pre-war
era, the LSA building is a product of
a postwar, pre-McCarthy era of uncer-
tainty and change.
"In the last thirty years architecture
has been a continual change," declared
Marzolf, indicating the realization of
the American people that things were
not going to remain as they had been.
"Modern architecture really caught
on after WWII," he said. After the war,
America developed its industry,

"I think we are trying these days to
harmonize our buildings," says Kor-
man. "But we're not trying to tell an
architect his or her building must look
like the building next to it."
KORMAN stresses that an architect
is hired for his ability to create, not his
ability to conform. "His professional
talent is in the area of aesthetics,"
Of course, everybody on campus is
not satisfied with the collection of
aesthetic talents of architects through
the ages, but Korman points out

Then in April he reappears as Siva. the

us that journalists don't listen to

the buildings of the 50s, will be viewed
by University goers in future years as
more atrocious than anything we have
