(Continued from Page 1.) truckers "who are outwitting us." He suggested more use of portable weighing scales. Ehlerl said this helps, but as soon discovers that a portable scale has been set up in a particular area he. begins .to tip off other drivers. He said .the best means available now to counter the truckers use of CB radio is for the state to monitor the broadcasts in an attempt to learn where drivers'are circum- venting weightstations. Reed suggested inspection of trucks, but Ehlert said it would require 400 men to operate check points at every location where highways enter Iowa. "You get me more Ehlert said, "if great enforce- ment is desired." No More Men Ehlert's department has a table of organization for 90 weight officers, but due to legis- lature restrictions only 75 of those positions can be filled. Director of Highways Joseph Coupal said he had been told di- rectly by Gov. Robert Ray that no additional job slots would be allowed. Ehlert said federal law makes it a violation to use CB radio for the commission of a crime, "but the problem is knowing who is using the radio." He estimated that one of every four of the big trucks are equipped with CB radio, and that 75 percent of the in- terstate trucks have them. The federal law restricts the vB units to five watts power, which would normally provide ;ransmission distances of seven ;o eight miles. However, Ehlert said many of the trucks arc equipped with much stronger broadcasting power. The discussion of CB radios in [rucks followed a report recom- mendation by Ehlert t h a I. National Trailer Convoy, Inc., of Tulsa was being placed on probation for CO days be- cause of recent violations of its oversize permits. National Trailer, Ehlert said, had seven violations in recent months after going a year and a lalf without any. Since Nov 1, ic said, the firm's drivers have jecn slopped for speeding, operating on unauthorized high- ways, operating wilh improper escorts, and violation of width ind length limits.

They re- mained in that position follow-1 ing Tuesday's order, and the FEO said it did not know how much additional gasoline they actually would receive if any. No decreases or increases to February supplies were sched- uled for any oilier state or jurisdiction. Simon said on the NBC "To- day" program that the extra gasoline would not put an end to long lines of cars at service sta- tions. He reiterated that the fuel shortage was a long-term prob- lem, measurable in terms of years and not months. Even a lifting of the embargo by Arab oil producers would not be rcflictcd immediately in an increase in supply, Simon said.
