"Suicide or Survival?" The question will be explored in a four-day series of programs beginning May 4 at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

A film on the death of Lake Erie and a speech by former secretary of interior Stewart Udall will highlight the series. Other speakers will be author Jacque Fresco and park supervisors John C. Raftery and Arthur F. Graham.

The film Who Killed Lake Erie? will be shown May 4. A production of NBC, the film depicts the drastic change from clean and drinkable water to a filthy chemical composition in a single lifetime.

On May 5, Fresco, co-author of the book Looking Forward and an inventor of medical equipment and prefab aluminum housing, will discuss some possible solutions to pollution problems.

Udall, who now heads a consulting firm that advises government agencies on environmental problems, will discuss the environmental imperative for the 1970s on May 6.

Raftery, superintendent of Everglades National Park, and Graham, superintendent of De Soto National Memorial, will talk about the ecological problems of the Everglades on May 7.

The programs are scheduled for 2 p.m. except the speech by Udall, at 8:30 p.m.
