SAUDI ARABIAN PACTS Twin-Level Controls on Oil Blasted WASHINGTON (AP) A de parting federal energy cxperi says the administration's crude oil price controls producec windfall profits, "polilica wheeling and dealing" and oi industry cheating. The broadside against the two-level price control was parting shot from William A, Johnson, key energy policy ana lyst and the former energy chief, William E. Simon. John- son was interviewed Friday on his last day at the Federal En- ergy Office. He was asked to explain whj the administration authorized dollar-a-barrel price increase for old domestic oil production last December, despite staff re- ports it would cost consumers some billion a year but not help in shortages. The increase, Johnson sajd, was intended as only the first step in closing the price gap be tween the price-controlled. old oil and uncontrolled new oi] brought into production s 1972. Political Problem This system had served the purpose of encouraging new oil exploration and development "but it has become a horren- dously serious political prob- he said. "All sorts of groups are trying to get (price-controlled) oil. The temptation for political wheeling and dealing is enor- said Johnson who added that he had no major role in the old-oil decision. "We have had companies coming in with senators, trying to get this old he said. The Federal Energy Office also con- trols allocation of. crude oil among refiners. Johnson added that the two- level system was also leading some oil producers to abandon existing production wells anc drill new wells into the same de- posits, so they could sell this production as "new oil" at the higher price. "We have a system that en- courages he said. Staff Reports Joh'nson's blast followed culation by consumer advocate Ralph Nader of staff reports to the Cost of Living Council which provided the groundwork for December's old-oil price in- crease.

The council staff said a 51 increase would, like any in- crease, be an arbitrary choice and-would cost the public some 5256 million a month. By that reckoning, the Dec. 19 price increase may already have turned some billion of the consumer's money into oil industry windfall profits.

Those recommendations were adopted Friday night at a meet ng of the county conventior rules committee at Peoples church. The rules committee also ac- cepted Chairman Doug Levitt's suggestion of Iowa Democratic National Committeeman Robert Fulton of Waterloo as recom- mended nominee for convention chairman. Lovitt said he considered Ful- on, who had indicated he coulc attend the convention, an ac- ceptable impartial choice for :he post. None High Enough A recall of the convention was necessitated when none of five )emocratic candidates for Bounty supervisor won the 35 icrcent of the votes necessary or nomination at last Tuesday's irimary election. The rules formulated Friday ight will be recommended to ic full convention, which must len adopt or modify them at he start of the p.m. meet- ng at Knights of Columbus hall. Lovitt said he expects some ebate on the rules, although he dded he thinks the committee ecommendations are "fair and an be defended on the conven- on floor." Under the recommended pro- cedures, the convention would start cold with no candidates and accept nominations of any "legally-qualified candi- date" who has given prior con- sent to his or her nominator. Nominating speeches would be limited to one minute and seconding speeches would be ruled out of order. After the close of nomina- tions, each candidate would then be allowed five minutes to speak to the convention, -with '.he order of speeches to be de- termined by lot. Order of the roll call would also be determined by lot, with balloting to commence ten min- utes after the final speech. Vote Delivery Precinct spokesmen would m ,hen be responsible for deliver- ng vote breakdowns of their jrecinct delegates to election of- :icials, who would translate the votes into "weighted" figures >ased on_the number of votes allowed to each precinct. A simple majority of weighted votes would be required for nomination, with the lowest vote- getter and all" candidates receiv- ng less than 15 percent of the rotes cast being removed after each ballot.

Authorities on the scene said :he Swinney car was westbound and the Myles car, eastbound. Three other persons, one in the Myles car and two from Swinney's car, were taken to Iowa City hospitals.
