In other energy news, the Federal Energy Office moved Wednesday to increase the na- tion's gasoline supplies by casing restrictions on imports of crude oil. Some oil firms have been de- liberately, cutting back crude oi imports because of government restrictions, FEO officials said. The cutbacks translated into less gasoline production. Published Notice In testimony before the senate commerce committee, Deputy FEO Administrator John Sawhill said notice would be published Thursday in the federal register of the FEO's intention to lift a restriction on all oil imported above a 1972 base period. Under existing law, oil firms are required to share their crude oil with competitors who have less. The big firms argue that this has forced those thai have purchased high priced crude oil overseas to sell it to competitors at a much lower U.S.-controlled price. The result has been that the firms deliberately reduced im- lorts which in turn resulted in ess crude oil to produce gaso- ine, officials explained. Meanwhile, federal energy chief William Simon Wednes- day repeated his criticism of a statement made by the shah of Iran and received support from Sen. Henry Jackson ID- Simon had taken issue with lie shah's statement that the U.S. was importing as much oil low as before the Arab boycott 'he prime minister of Iran re ponded that Simon was "talk ng through his hat." "I just stand on my firs Simon said on the }BC "Today" program, ave our numbers here in the Jnited States government, am ley're factual." Jackson Comment Speaking earlier on the CBS 'Morning News" program ackson commented on the aah's statement saying: an't put that one together."

Percy Likes His Chances For '76 Nod By Donald Lambro WASHINGTON U P I) Charles Percy believes he has more than a "10 percent chance" to win the 1976 Republi- can presidential nomination and is ready to take on anyone who says he doesn't. Percy, who plans to spend a leas.-; this year on quest for his party's nod, doesn' like being scratched from the race before he's had an opportu nity to show his track record. So Percy bristled when Barry Goldwater bluntly said last No vember the Illinois senato didn't have a ghost of a chance predicting that Percy's own state delegation would deser him. "Too Inconsistent" "Right now Chuck Percy the Arizona conserve live told this reporter in an in terview. "I don't think he can get the delegation from his own state. It's not that he's too liber al but he's too inconsistent He wanders all over hell's hal acre." Percy, who last year went ti great lengths to make peace with President Nixon, quicklj contacted Goldwater when hi leard of the story and extractec a pledge that Goldwater woult support him if he won the no mination.

As far as Goldwater is con- cerned, "85 percent of all Re- publicans are conservative so don't worry about the re- maining 15 percent who are not." Dominant Voice The conservative wing of the party will be the dominant voice at the 1976 convention, he be- lieves, and there is no' way a moderate-liberal candidate like Percy could be nominated. During an interview, Percy said Goldwater was "pulling those 85-15 percent figures out of the air." "No figures I have seen in- dicate Percy insisted. "In fact, polls show that half of all Republicans see themselves as middle-of-the-road. "I would say that if he was talking about the 1964 conven- tion (which nominated Gold- water) where (Nelson) Rocke- feller was booed and where ex- tremism was the symbol his figures come close to accuracy but that was not a represent-: alive year."

Absorbing Two Cents .Allen's Service station, 1001 First avenue SE, is absorbing almost two cents of a three-cent price increase iMobil Oil Co. passed on to retailers the first of the month. The price range between sta- tions is not as widespread this month as it has been in previous months. The lowest price found for full-service regular gasoline was 44.4 cents per gallon at Jerry's Sinclair, 3404 Ml. Vcrnon road SE, and Cain Bros. Texaco, 2663 Ml. Vernon road SE. The highest regular gasoline price fcund was at Noelridge Park Gulf, 1120 Old Marion road NE, at 50.5 cents per gallon. Outlook Uncertain The outlook for prices next month is uncertain. However, most stations will apparently take a two-cent per gallon in- crease announced last weekend by the FEO to help cover in- creasing overhead expenses. e a Predictions for March alloca- tions were equally uncertain, with most still having no report from their supplier. Don Schmidt, owner of Don's Conoco, 2846 Ml. Vernon road SE, said he will just barely have enough gasoline if he gets fuel Friday, but has no assurances the gasoline will arrive on the first of the month. A lot of other stations are also in need of fuel, he reported, and his station is not at the top of the list. (Continued from Page 1.) Jim's Vernon Heights Phar- macy, 1906 Mt. Vernon road SE.
