Don't know for sure but could be part of the PCV system to recycle blowby gases from the crankcase and valve covers back into the main air inlet stream.

The other tube I think into the air intake would be for the secondary air inlet pump that is used briefly during cold starts to add more air/oxygen into the intake stream to help get the catalytic converter up to operating temperature quicker.
