A leader Means shoty
in .D.election dispute

WAGNER, S. D. (UPI) -
Russell Means, American Indi-
an Movement leader, and
another AIM member were shot
and wounded early yesterday in
a quarrel that developed during
:IM elections on the Yankton
Sioux reservation.
Means and his companion,
John Thomas, were taken to
Sacred Heart Hospital in Yank-
ton where both were described
as in satisfactory condition af-
ter surgery. Attorney General
William Janklow said the
shooting was done by two young
Native Americans who were
part of a group that took over
the Wagner pork plant last year
in protest against white man-
agement policies. An investiga-
tion of the shooting incident
was underway.
AT YANKTON, a hospital
spokesman said Means was
shot in the lower chest with a
small caliber weapon. The

This funnel, spotted Tuesday near Mesa, Ariz., was an "eddy
tornado" according to meteorologists. It differs from a "dy-
namic tornado" like the one found in the Midwest where the
tops of the clouds go to 50,000 feet or more. No damage was
reported resulting from this funnel cloud.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen.
Robert Griffin, (R-Mich.) said
yesterday he thought that Ron-
ald Reagan would have a "much
more difficult" time winning
election in November than Pres-
ident Ford.
Griffin, the assistant GOP
leader in the Senate and one
of Ford's closest allies, also
said, "I personally cannot be-
lieve that the majority of Amer-
ican people oant a choice in
November between Reagan and
(arter
ASKED IF REAGN tcould
vin the general election, Grif-
fin tas for altost a min-
otte before saving, "I think it
would be mch i oe difficult
to elect a Repu'ttcn president
if hc ts tie nominc. -'
Griffi stid he hopeits that the
'shck" oi ford's dfeoit by
teagTn to lexas and Indiana
will serve to get Ford support-

ers "off their duffs and more
active in Ford's campaign."
The Michigan Republican said
that as a result of Ford's In-
diana defeat "Obviously we
have a lot of work to do."
GRIFFIN SAID Ford got a
"lot of advice this morning"
from GOP congressional lead-
ers, including the belief that
P'ord has been too defensive in
responding to Reagan's charg-
'I don't think the President
oight to be spending his time
answering Mr Reagan ..., but
rathr totld be talking about
his ooo rordi and accotmplish-
ments, Grtifin sai.
Griffin s!id the outcome of
the crucial Michigan primary
in F-ord's home state was "very
ipredictable. I am concerned
about tth t'c;Democratic cross-
over-s. \ihigon can't be taken
for grantrd.
