Hathaway approved by
Senate Interior Committee

Paae Seven

Hathaway, who has pledged not
to disregard the environment
while developing natural re-
sources, was approved by the
Senate Interior Committee yes-
terday to be secretary of the
By a 9-4 vote, the committee
approved the nomination and
sent it to the full Senate, where
a final vote could come this
week but is more likely to oc-
cur after the 10-day Memotial
Day recess.
SEVERAL e n v i r o n mental
groups had urged the cam-
mittee to reject the nomination,
contending that Hathaway's
eight-year record as governor
of Wyoming indicaed he has no
great desire to protect the en-
vironment in any showdown
with industrial or mining inter-
But the environmental issue
was not raised yesterday in a
final 2 -hour hearing on the
nomination. The entire session
was consumed by a report of
an investigation into Hathaway's
connection with a bank in his
hometown of Torrington, Wyo.,

On April 21, in his first ap-
pearance before the commit-
tee, Hathaway, who is 50 and a
Republican, said he had earned
no outside income while ne was
governor from 1967 through
BUT ON May 14, pleading a
bad memory, he informed the
committee that he actually had
received $13,000 in fees for serv-
ing as a director of Citizens Na-
tional Bank and Trust Co. in
1969, 1970 and 1971.
In an effort to determine sshe-
ther Hathaway had disclosed
the whole story about his deal-
ings with the bank, the csm-
mittee sent an investigator,
Owen Malone, to Torington. Ma -
lone told the panel he foond
nothing to dispute Hathaway's
Some members of the com-
mittee expressed concern that
as governor, Hathaway was a
member of the state Board of
Deposit, whose duties included
determining the eligibility of
banks to receive-state deposits.
However, Malone noted that
the state treasurer nad th e
final decision on whether to de-

conflict, Hathaway said, the
bank agreed that while he was
governor it would accept no
more state money for deposit
than it did before his tenure.
Sen. Richard Stone (D-Fla ),
questioned whether Hathaway
had violated the law in borrow-
ing $8,000 from Citizens National
to buy stock in the sank -stock
that Hathaway said the bank
may have held as security fr
the loan.
But a quick check by the
committee indicated, first, that
the stock was not used to secure
the loan, and, second, that any
violation would have been
charged to the bank, not to
"I FEEL I did nothing nor-
ally wrong, legally wrong,"
Hathaway said of his .dealings
with the hometown wank.
Joining Stone in opposing the
nomination were Sens. Floyd

(D-Ohio) and James Absurezk,

THE HOUSE bill calls for
federal grants to state or local
governments, including Indian
tribes, for construction, repair
or other improvements of local
public works projects that can
be started within 90 days of pro-
ject approval. No state or local
funds would be required.
