Effects of Shortage Seen in Record Gas Prices inC.R. By Roger Green Gasoline prices are taking record increases at a number of Cedar Rapids service stations this month, with some already jumping 5.8 'cents per gallon. Seven of the 17 stations'selling gasoline under 15 brand names which were contacted by The Gazette have increased prices this month. But, many more said they ex- pect increases as much as the 5.5-plus cents al- ready seen at other stations. Prices at stations polled ranged from 39.3 to 48.9 cents per gallon for regular and 44 to 52.9 cents per gallon for pre- mium. Minimum Hike The minimum increase found among those who have in- creased prices was two cents per gallon at the Jones Park DX, Bowling street and Wilson avenue SW. The price there (on- ly one grade is sold) is 45.9 cents. But, Gary's Standard Service, 2011 Sixteenth avenue SW, has seen' the 5.8 cent per gallon increase, with regular at 48.9, lead-free at 50.9 and premium at 52.9. The increase is the largest single increase to date, accord- ing to a spokesman at the sta- tion. The Apco station at 804 Center Point road NE similarly report- ed a 5.8 cent increase, with prices standing at 46.4 and 50. e trapped into spending money or totally ineffectual "solu- ions" or even dangerous, ille- gal products. "Cancer Cures" "The same kind of fast buck operators who brought you quack cancer cures and pyra- mid clubs will be operating at jeak capacity in the automobile says Graham W. White- lead, president of British Ley- and Motors Inc., marketers ol Austin, MG, Jaguar, Triumph and Land-Rover cars in the U. "The gasoline shortage will result in a flood of 'secret for- mula' additives and 'space age devices which promise more miles to the gallon. "But low-cost, do-it-yourscl! gadgets which fit all cars rcgar dless of make, model and year such as water injectors, super chargers, 'hot' ignition compo nents.and 'miracle' carburetor conversion kits have been on the market for years, mainly through mail order." Of course, there are effectivi ways in which you can increase your mileage per gallon of gas. Presumably, by now you-havi learned them well. For in stance, drive more slowly, kee your tires properly inflated, b sure your car is in tune am drive a smaller car. U. S, Bar: Ban on Ex-Felons' Voting Is Unconstitutional eeiiiig point of view, White- :ead declares, "virtually all of lie gadgets claiming belter lileage are worthless, like nost anything that offers the ;ullible something for praclical- y nothing. Some of the devices r e actually counterproduc- ivc." As one far-out illustration, the romoters claimed a "mileage costing would convert plain air into "high-po- wered fuel." The ingenious pro motion pointed out that 70 per- cent of the gas you put in your car is "wasted" and to prove it, he ad suggested a simple test: )Iace a wad of cotton on your exhaust pipe and notice how quickly it becomes soaking wet. But the fact is the moisture coming out of the exhaust pipe .s not gas. It's water condensa lion. A large part of your gas is inevitably "wasted" in the sense that it is dissipated in thi form of heat instead of power just as most of the heat in you fireplace inevitably goes up the chimney. The fact also is that in some cases, independent lab oratory tests show the "mirac le" additives and gimmicks ac tually decrease the efficiency o gas in your tank. And o: changes at the proper interval are more beneficial than an; additives being sold today. Aren't there, then, any "after market" items which can reall help us get more miles pe gallon? Yes, says Whitehead. Proper Tune One is a comprehensive shop lions Whitehead, try to extend our weekend cruising range by1 aving accessory fuel tanks in- tailed in the trunks of your ars. A car's trunk is among its WASHINGTON (AP) The American Bar Assn. has told :he supreme court that prohibit- ing ex-felons from voting is un- constitutional. The ABA stand canie in a 'riend-of-the-court brief re- ceived Wednesday in a Califor- nia voting rights case now under consideration by the court. Ex-felons should be protected by the 14th Amendment guaran- tees of equal protection, read the brief signed by ABA pres- ident Chesterfield Smith and other members of the lawyers' organization. "Whatever special consider- ations may exist for felons still under sentence, both the consti- tutional priority for protection of voting rights and the lan- guage of the equal protection clause warrant no exception for discharged ex-offender citi- said the ABA. Such disenfranchisement can- not be shown to serve any sig- nificant rehabilitative the. ABA said. "Indeed, it has been the near unanimous posi- tion of correctional administra- ors, study commissions, law eform. codes and students of jenology that restoration of. civil rights serves offender rehabilitation that is now a jasic'tenet of every state cor- rectional system." The ABA filed its brief in a case appealing a.California su- preme court decision that truck down a state ban on ex- elon voting. County officials ap- pealed to the .U. S. supreme court to preserve the ban. LEGAL NOTICES NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON BEQUEST TO CHANGE THE DISTRICT Ell?

So why not find a lower setting that is. comfortable, preferably and leave it during the waking hours. At night, lower your thermostat. For every degree it's lowered, you will save more money. However, when the1 temperature outside is 0" or below, don't lower the thermostat setting at night by more than 6-or 7 degrees. A lower setting might make your furnace work overtime to reheat your home in the morning. Here are some other suggestions that will help you conserve energy and save money this winter: Weatherstrip and calk around windows and doors. Seal against air leaking to the attic. An opening to your attic can result in a substantial heat loss. Close the fireplace damper tightly when your fireplace is not in use so you don't let a lot of warm air escape. Let the sunshine in on sunny days but close drapes to keep the heat inside at niciht. Don't put furniture or drapes front of warm air registers or .cold air-returns. Humidify for increased comfort. Consider outside temperatures and be careful not to add too much humidity. Clean or change furnace filters once a month arid be sure your furnace fan is kept clean, oiled and working properly.
