Gasoline rationing proposed LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gas rationing for most of Southern C^alifomia was proposed today as an antismog measure by William D. Ruckelshaus, Environmental Protection Agency administrator. Ruckelshaus said the . rationing proposal would apply—if approved after a series of public hearings—to almost all of Los Angeles County, all of Orange and Ventura counties and much of Riverside, San BemariUno and Santa Barbara counties. Ruckelshaus said that although EPA has serious reservations as to the feasibility of the proposed action, the agency had had no alternative under ^e Clean Air Act of 1970 but to propose a plan. He said the gas rationing system had been proposed for the smog season from May through October. He estimated it would limit gas usage by up to 82 per cent in the area. In a news statement, he said, "The EPA proposal outlines two methods of enforcement,) gasoline coupons for individual motorists or production level rationing with price controls to prevent windfall profits for gasoline stations. All gasoline would then be sold on a first come, first served basis." Rickelshaus also outlined proposals to include vehicle inspection, smog devices and conversion of fleet vehicles to other fuels such as natural gas. In one of the few mentions of controls aimed at something besides the vehicle, he proposed additional controls on stationary sources sych as incinerators. The agency estimated the new smog devices would cost from $200 to $400. It stated that the conversion of fleet vehicles to natural gas use would cost from $500 to $800 per vehicle. Ruckelshaus said he recognized the "economic and social disruptions that could result from the proposed plan, including the direct cost to automobile owners, the possible loss of income to workers missing work because of inadequate transportation, the impact on service and retail establishments and Goodlieallli.......................G Horoscope..............'..........11 the Markets..........................3 Memory Ldne......................3 Sidewalk Slants....................3 Sports...........................8,9 Television.........................O' Ruckelshaus said that his agency and states were, required under the federal Clean Air Act to achieve the clean air programs by 1975.

(AP) - A 26-year-old unsuccessful candidate for the city council here is trying to gain s\jpport for a movement to make the North Vietnamese capital of Hanoi a sister-city to this Southern California coastal town. Jim Rosenberger suggests that the city of Uermosa Beach offer "to the people of North Vietnam, and more specific^ly to the people of Hanoi, our condolences for the havoc we have wrought upon them." Kevin Cody, 24, editor of the weekly semiunderground newspaper, Easy Reader, is supporting Rosenberger's canvpaigfl. However, Easy - Reader-reported that the fivfe-mah city" council 'received the suggestion coolly." And, ; Cody admits thit since the newspaper ; has lent its support, "advertising has [dropiped way^bff." "liiia isn't a freak idea or just a one-Ishot proposal," Rosenberger said frecently, "We're going to try to get I similar motions put before the city boun-ils of Redondo Beach and Manhattan each, and we're going to collect lignatures and offer a petition to our council." Rosenberger first introduced his sister city proposal to the city council on Jan. 2. One councilman moved that the council support the proposal but the motion died for lack of a second. One ot the op^smg councilmen said: "How would the vets feel if on Dec. 8 (1941) we had invited Tokyo to be our-sister city?" Cody has expressed optimism that the movement still will receive the support it needs to win approval. "It's a funny town. We voted two to one in favor of the marijuana initiative and we were the only coastal town to vote in favor of the coastal initiative,." he slid in reference to the last Hection. "Nixon took Hern^osa Beach by only about 400 votes aad we're one of the few cities'to put a lid on development. "We cannot allow our fear or failure, or teing lauded at ourselves, to stop us from seeking peace between Hermosa Beach and Hanoi," Gody said, adding that he and Rosenberger would continue to sample community opinion until they have collected what they feel is a true majority opmion. ' store at 1655 W. Sixth, Corona, lost $5,150 ih cash and $3,153 in checks. CONSTANCE M. ADKINS, 24, a bookkeeper at the store, was in the second floor office when two men in their middle 20s entered about 10:10 a.m. and asked for work applications. One said "the man downstairs" sent them. As she started to obtain the applications, one of the pair pulled a "large caliber pistol" and ordered her, "Open the vault." The office contained only a safe, but the door was open. TTie pair made their victim lie down on the floor while they tied her hands with rope and covered her head with her coat. They apparently had brought the rope with them. About that time Joe F, Souza, 27, entered the office. He, too, was ordered to the floor where one bandit began to tie his hands while the other scooped cash and checks from the safe. The bandit place a money sack over Souza's head. THE BANDITS^'tied the feet of neither victim, and the woman managed to free herself after obtaining a pair of scissors. The entire incident took only seven or eight minutes, the. victims said. Meanwhile, store personnel downstairs in the retail section of the building were not aware that a stickup was in progress. They observed nothing unusual, and did not see the suspects leave the building.

S.F.'s traffic eye an invasion? SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union vowed today an investigation of the police department's new traffic-monitoring television "eye" mounted CO feet above heavy downtown traffic. "It's another example of thd'state invading our privacy," declared ACLU spokesman Paul N. Halvonik. Police traffic Capt. Edward Cum-mings denied it, saying "That's not invasion of privacy any more than a policeman is." A closed-circuit TV camera was mounted atop a 60-foot pole by a helicopter Sunday at the corner of Fifth and Mission Streets, one of the busiest downtown intersections in San Francisco. ' The camera g9es into operation Tuesday. Images will be piped into the Hail of Justice in hopes the $39,000 instrument can help unsnarl traffic. Monitoring a big screen, officers assigned to the device will be able to remotely control the camera's focus, light aperture and position on top of the pole-up, down or swiveled in a circle. They'll be able to zoom in for a closeup or pull back for a long distance view. A little button on the control console will activate a windshield wiper to mop the leris in case of rain. Observing a traffic knot, officers will be able to alter timing sequences on the traffic lights with a switch, enabling the officer to keep a light red or green as long as necessary. tummings said the new installation is "permanent," with plans to add a pair more at other streets. Instructor guilty in hot water case SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) — The Marine Corps said today a 23-year-old drill instructor has been found guilty of pouring hot water on a recruit but is. back to work after being fined $100. The penalty imposed by a one-officer summary courtmartial was "unusually light because of the excellent past service" of the instructor, Sgt. Henry Gonzales of Waco, Tex.,, a spokesman said. In the incident last month, Gonzales was accused of overturning a bucket full of hot water dui-irig-a cleanup at the San Diego Marine Recruit Depot, Sebastioh Herrera Jr., 19, of San Diego suffered back burns. The lads were feeding ducks at a U-shaped pond at Cresta Verde Golf Course yesterday, when John Jaramillo, 1537 Mariposa, slipped on some moss and fell into the water, about 12 feet deep in some places. The water is contained behind steeply sloping embankments lined with concrete, and John was unable to obtain a foothold to get out of the water. He said he was dog paddling on the surface but began to sink. HIS COMPANION, Richie Cullins, 1525 Mariposa, found a crack in the concrete lining part of the waV down the bank. He clutched his fingers into the crack, slid down to near the water's surface, and extended a foot to John, then in serious trouble. John grabbed the leg, and held on. Richie pulled himself and his companion up the embankment to where the victim could aid himself. A hour later, both youngsters were quite nonchalant abotit the whole affai^. John's mother was, too, until she learned the details of the incident. She had heard that the lad had slipped into the water, but knew nothing about his getting into trouble until the boys told a newspaper reporter about the incident. "That's the last time you're going over there to play," she declared with emphasis. "I didn't think too much about it at first, because I knew nothing about what happened. I'm learning more and getting more concerned all the time," she said. Richie's father, Lloyd, is 3 detective with the Corona Police Dept.

Cease-fire speculation increasing By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The United States suspended all offensive military operations in North Vietnam today amid increasing speculation that the secret peace talks with the North Vietnamese inay have resulted in an agreement on a ceasefire. President Nixon ordered the halt effective at 10 a.m. EST "because of the-progress made", in the Paris peace talks. Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler announced in Key Biscayne, where Nixon is staying. Ziegler called the action "a unilateral gesture" and refused* to coinment on reports that Henry A. Kissinger, the President's' negdtiator in the secret talks, may have reached an agreement with Hanoi's Le Due Tho. Ziegler said Kissinger, who conferred extensively with Nixon Sunday after his return from Paris, had met with Nixon again this morning and would be going back to Paris "at some point in the relatively near future." Nixon acted as reports in Saigon suggested that compromises have been reached on the issues that have been blocking a settlement. There was speculation that a full ceasefire might even be declared sometime this week. Gen. Alexander M. Haig Jr., who has been President Nijion's intermediary with South Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu, was en route to Saigon and expected to arrive early Ti^esday. South Vietnamese sources said Haig was carrying the . revised draft of a peace agreement. Sources also indicated that the outlines of the agreement already have been conveyed to" Thieu by Ellsworth Bunker, the U,S. ambassador to South Vietnam. Thieu, meanwhile, met with his National Security Council, his closest group of senior aides. Official sources said the meeting lasted eight hours, the longest the council has ever held. An estimate that a cease-fire might occur "as early as this week" was reported by a CBS television correspondent in Saigon, Richard Wagner, who said it was obtained from "highly reliable palace sources in Sai-gon." Well-mformed sources in Saigon told The Associated Press that there was a possibility of a compromise by Thieu on his demand that any agreement specifically provide for the total withdrawal of all North Vietnamese troops in South 'Vietnam. The sources said the compromise would involve a "tacit understanding" on withdrawal in the peace treaty itself, with provisions spelling it out placed in an accompanying technical protocol. CBS' Wagner said his sources reported "tacit recognition" by Hanoi of the Saigon government, acceptance Jay Hanoi of a "temporary military and political demarcation line in Vietnam at the 17th Parallel, and agreement on a larger control commission to supervise a cease-fire. Nixon's action in halting the bombing apparently was connected with the schediiled arrival Tuesday morning in Saigon of his peace emissary. Gen. Alexander M. Haig Jr., who official South Vietnamese sources said was bringing a revised draft peace agreement to present to President Nguyen Van Thieu. Tin Song, a leading newspaper, quoted an unnamed source as saying a ceasefire might occur before the Vietnamese Tet lunar new year Feb. 3, but quoted a second source as saying the Saigon government "was neither optimistic or pessimistic." Earlier, the U.S. Command reported that 10 B52 missions were flown in the ' southern panhandle of North Vietnam ' below the 19th Parallel during the 24-hour period ending at 8 a.m. today. . Weather Early clouds and fog followed by hazy sun tomorrow. Today's noon temperatures was 53, after an overnight low of 42. Yesterday's high was 83. Wonts fo folks
