Midwest Governors Cite Fuel Issue By (Jerry Nelson MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Midwest governors opening their annual meeting here Monday expressed concern about the possibility of fuel shortages again next winter. They also complained about a lack of energy information from the federal government. "The Midwest governors and all governors are enor- mously concerned about both the short-range and long- range said Ohio Gov. John Gilligan, a Demo- crat. "We're upset that the na- tional administration has not really done anything about a national energy policy or an apparatus to deal with the problem. The people have to be told the truth, that we can survive, but it will fake re- strictions." Conference business ses- sions began Monday, with 12 of the 15 Midwest governors on hand. On Tuesday, there will be a panel discussion of the world food crisis. Borlaug on Sen. Hubert II. Humphrey (D-Minn.) is scheduled as moderator, and speakers will include Norman Borlaug, Cre- sco, Iowa native, who the Pulitzer Prize for peace for developing a new strain of wheat suitable for arid re- gions. The governors are sche- duled to discuss energy prob- lems Wednesday. The agenda includes an address by the na- tional energy administrator, John Sawhill. Several governors indicated they are not convinced the crisis is over, despite ade- quate supplies of gasoline this summer. "We still have a very serious energy said Gov. Wendell Anderson of Minnesota, a Democrat. "We have a temporary solution, but high fuel prices also have contributed to inflation." Change DST Law Anderson said he agrees with a proposal by Gov. Wil- liam Milliken of Michigan, a Republican, asking congress to change the year-round day- light saving time law. "There are a couple of months we could do without it." the Min- nesota governor said. Illinois Gov. Daniel Walker, a Democrat, was more op- timistic. "We've been led to believe it won't be as bad as last Walker said. "We ha- ven't talked to Sawhill about any potential shortages next winter, but we've heard that there are sufficient fuel sup- plies for homes and we hope that is correct. We have not had any problems with gaso- line, either and it's not antici- pated we will have in the near future. But, we've heard noth- ing from Washington." The chairman of the confer- ence, Democratic Gov. J. James Exon of Nebraska, said Sunday he will strive to avoid having the conference "bogged down" in talk of Wa- tergate and impeachment. "There's nothing I can do, pro or con, on the impeach- ment of the said Exon.
