motorist pays seven cents state tax and four cents federal tax on every gallon of gas he buys in the state said lie didn't think the extra three cents per gallon would deter anybody from driving I

with newsmen He said he would urge the plan as part of a package of recommendations which the state board will make next year During testimony before the committee the question 61 was raised by Ellen Stern Harris a county member of the committee Airs Harris said she felt that such rationing would be needed along with a zero growth policy of both population and energy production in order to curb smog said that such ideas deserve con- sideration He said however that felt an ex- tremely high tax on gasoline might be a better de- terrant than rationing Such a tax he said would have to be much greater than the three cent increase he was con- for rapid transit The Los Angeles Air Pollution Control District came under sharp criticism from a San Diego en- at the committee's afternoon sion

disclosed Monday night The present contact with the Sheriff's Department runs out midnight June 30 and councilmen have offered the department for the year's coverage A reaction for the Sheriff's De- indicates that figure would not be adequate to provide the minimum amount of coverage Prior to the 8 o'clock meeting tonight the council will hold an executive session with City Attorney William Camil to determine the city's legal position in the matter During Monday night's meeting council Robert Harbicht asked what would happen if the city held to its limit and the Sheriff's Dept refused to provide coverage for that figure This is apparently the question that the council will attempt to settle by meeting with the city attorney The Sheriff's Dopt has indicated to the city that it would cost to continue the existing level of protection However the department feels that even that figure isn't adequate Of Local Note BRIDGE CLASS DUE An evening class in bridge in- struction will be
