After Driverless Car Hits House CLARE Clare man was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol after his driverless car ran through the kitchen of a home here over the weekend. Lawrence Quade stopped his 1974 model car to wait for a train crossing at a street here, officials said, and got out only to have his accelerator jam and witnesses said the car traveled 275 feet before winding xip in the kitchen of the Roy Lindner home. On the it knocked over a number of oil barrels, a stop sign, the vent pipes of an un- derground oil storage tank be- fore reaching the Lindner home, where no injuries were reported.

Several utilities said they had extra reserve capacity. A spokesman for Commonwealth Edison of Chicago said, "Our reserve will be 16 percent. The reserve normally is 14 percent." He said the extra capacity is the result of a "slowdown in electrical growth. In past years there has been an electrical growth of 5 or C percent a year, but so far this year, it's not growing at all." Consolidated Edison Co. of New York reported extra gen- erating units two more this year than last. But the company was forced to make a voltage cutback last Friday when the temperature hit 92 degrees. Some equipment was out of service because of repairs and maintenance by company work- men trying to get things ready for summer.

In a few conversations with reporters, he has indicated a Ford administration would be a scandal-free continuation of Nixon's.

"Premature" Rep. Melcher, a Montana Democrat, whose district em- braces the largely barren, reservation east of Billings, reported the decision in a statement released by his Bill- ings office. Officials of the department, who had expected Interior Sec- retary Morton to announce a decision momentarily after sep- arate meetings Wednesday with representatives of the tribe and t h e leaseholders, challenged Meleher's version of the depart- ment's action.

His schedule called on htm to fly to Tacoma, Wash., for three ap- pearances Monday night and then lo make five separate one- day trips out of Washington starting Wednesday. The audiences that have heard him, ranging from nonpolitieai civic groups and university graduating classes to Republic- an contributors, have responded with virtually unanimous praise. But criticism of Ford's varied statements on Watergate have begun to appear in newspaper editorials and at his news con- ferences, requiring him to deny Friday that he has been "zig- zagging" in criticizing White House tactics amid expressions of faith in the President's in- nocence.
