Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Weather- wear tonight with lows in 40s. Sunny and warmer Tuesday with highs upper 60s and low 70s. VOLUME 92 NUMBER 103 CITY FINAL 10 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, MONDAY, APRIL 22, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES EDITED" NIXON GasToHit 60 Cents: FEOHead ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) By summer, motorists may be pay- ing 60 cents for a gallon of gaso- line, says the nation's top en- ergy official. Federal energy Sawhill said Sunday he expect- ed gasoline prices to go up a few more cents and to level off at about 60 cents a gallon this summer. He told reporters cov- ering a meeting of the National Oil Jobbers Council that he didn't expect gasoline prices to go much above that level. Current average gasoline prices are about 53 cents a gal- lon for regular and 56 cents for premium. Sawhill didn't say whether he was referring to the price of premium, regular or the average. Sawhill said motorists could look forward to new gasoline shortages if they do not con- tinue to practice conservation. "The record winter is now over and the oil embargo is lift- ed, but this is no time to relax he said. "We have to hammer that theme of conserv- ing energy until people want to do it and believe in doing it." If Americans continue driving at lower speed limits and limit nonessential use of cars, there will be sufficient gasoline for summer vacations, he said. Sawhill also urged states to retain 55 mile an hour speed limits. He said the lower limit "saves energy and lives and should become a permanent part of our way of life."

New York Blast Injures 60 three By Associated Press Tornadoes slashed through Oshkosh, Wis., on Sunday, dam- iaging more than 400 homes and prompting the state's acting governor to declare a state of emergency. An elderly woman and an in- fant were killed as twisters touched down in a 35-mile stretch through four counties from Oshkosh south to Lomira. Tornadoes also touched down in Texas and Illinois on Sunday, but Wisconsin was the hardest hit. The Wisconsin tornadoes struck about 4 p.m. A 74-year-old Campbellsport woman was killed when a tor- nado demolished her mobile home, and a 5-month-old baby was killed when a tornado sent a tree crashing onto the car in which he was riding. Property damage was most severe in Oshkosh, but no deaths were reported in the city. "It's miraculous that no- body got said City Man- ager Gordon Jaeger.

In northern Texas, tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in- jured eight persons and caused widespread property damage. Tornadoes in northern Illinois damaged about 20 homes and injured a few persons at Polo, while another' touched down nearby at Slillman Valley. No major damage was reported.

The Times said it learned this weekend that a package com- posed of verbatim transcripts of about 36 conversations, but probably fewer, will be turned over by the White House to the committee Thursday, the sub- poena's due date. But Still Undecided the White House said Monday that President Nixon is still undecided on "tile content of form" of his response to the committee's subpoena.

But, Warren said, "the Pres- ident told me no decisions have }een made in terms of content or form of the reply" to the committee's subpoena. Derogatory Remarks The Times said that deleted 'rom the transcripts will be vul jarisms, or derogatory remarks not pertinent to the substance o .he conversations. The Times said Presiden Nixon, while at his Camp Davic retreat during the weekend, was 'weighing strong advice from nside and outside the White House to flatly reject the sub poena."

Describes Behavior Types Prone to Heart Attacks By United Press International The Israeli and Syrian air forces were reported in action Monday on the Golan Heights front where tank and artillery duels were reported for the 42nd consecutive day, but the action appeared to be minor with no aerial clashes developing. Arab newsmen in Lebanon re- ported that two Israeli half- tracks crossed into Lebanon on the ill-defined border at the foot of Mount Hermon and clashed with Lebanese troops, but both Israeli and Lebanese officials denied the report. The Israeli command said two Syrian jets penetrated Israeli- held territory on the Golan Heights and returned to Syria before Israeli jets could inter- cept them. It said Israeli planes bombed and strafed Syrian posi- tions on Mount Hermon. Turned Around An Israeli military source said the two Syrian planes, Mig-21s, penetrated Israeli ter- ritory in the early afternoon at the easternmost part of the bulge Israel captured from Syria in October. He said the two Migs flew in, turned around, and returned to Syria without attempting to attack Israeli positions. A Damascus communique said. Syrian artillery shelled Israeli anti-aircraft missile bases which the Israelis moved up to advanced positions during the night. The communique did not say in which sector the Israelis had pushed forward the missile launchers. Earlier communiques said ex- changes of artillery continued intermittently throughout the night on the slopes of Mount Hermon. The Israeli military command said two Israeli soldiers were killed during a Syrian shelling attack on the heights Sunday. The announcement was delayed so that the soldiers' relatives could be notified. Syrian military communiques said "several" Israeli soldiers were killed and tanks destroyed n day and night artillery duels iver the mountain. Syria said :wo raiding Israeli fighter-bomb- ers were driven off by ground ire. New Premier Meanwhile, leaders of the rul- ig Labor party voted Monday or Labor Minister Yitzhak labin, a former chief of staff nd ambassador to the U. S., to eplace outgoing Prime Min- ster Golda Meir. The party's central committee oted 298-290 in favor of Rabin ter Information Minister Shi- mon Peres. The nomination still left abin far short of forming a ew coalition government from rael's divided and bickering olitical parties. He has a little over six weeks succeed. If he fails, he must jrrender to another candidate r leave Mrs. Meir as caretaker emier until new elections can e set. By Meyer Friedman, M.D. and Ray H. Rosenman, M.D. The following section- is in- tended to help you determine for yourself whether you are a Type A or Type B personality. If you are honest in your self appraisal and if you are ac- tually aware of your own (Second in a Series) traits and habits we believe that you will not have too much trouble accomplishing this. The details of the behavior pattern vary, of course, ac- cording to many factors ed- ucation, age, social position. But most of you will be able to spot yourselves. Incidentally, we have found that Type A persons are by and large more common, and that if you are not quite sure about yourself, chances are that you, too, are Type A not fully developed, perhaps, but bad enough to think about changing. And after you have assessed yourself, ask a friend or your spouse whether your self-as- sessment was accurate. If you disagree, they are probably right. You possess Type A behav- ior pattern: I, If you have (a) n liabil of explosively accentuating various key words in your or- dinary speech even when there is no real need for such accentuation, and (b) a ten- dency to utter the last few words of your sentences far more rapidly than the opening words. The vocal explosiveness be- trays the excess aggression or hostility you may be harbor- ing. The hurrying of the ends of sentences mirrors your un- derlying impatience with even the time required for your own speech. 2. If you always move, walk, and eat rapidly. 3. If you feel (particularly if you openly exhibit to others) an impatience with the rale at which most events lake place. You are suffering from this sort of impatience if you find it.difficult to restrain yourself from hurrying the speech of others and resort to the device of saying very quickly over and over again, "Uh huh, uh or, "Yes yes, yes to someone who is talking, un- consciously urging him to "got on.with" or hasten his rate of speaking. You are also suffering from impatience if you attempt to finish the sentences of persons speaking to you before they can. Other signs of (his sort of impatience: if you become un- duly irritated or even enraged when a car ahead of you in your lane runs at a pace you consider too slow; if you find it anguishing to wait in line or to wail your turn to be sqated at a restauranl; if you find it intolerable to watch others perform tasks you know you can do faster; if you become impatient with yourself as you are obliged to perform repeti- tious duties (making oul bank deposil slips, writing checks, washing and cleaning dishes, and so which are neces- sary bul take you away from doing things you really have an interest in doing; if you find yourself hurrying your own reading or always at- tempting to obtain condensa- tions or summaries of truly interesting and worthwhile lit- erature. 4. If you indulge in polypha- sic thought or performance, frequently striving to think of or do two or more things si- multaneously. For example, if while trying to listen to an- other person's speech you persist in continuing to Ihink about an irrelevanl subject, you are indulging in polypha- sic thought. Similarly, if while golfing or fishing you continue to ponder your business or professional problems, or if while using an electric razor you attempt, also to eat your breakfast or drive your car, or if while driving your car you attempt to dictate letters for your sec- retary, you are indulging in polyphasic performance.
