Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4 The Cfdar Rapids liaielte: Tues.. Aug. 20. 1971 Energy Position Paper Hearings in Kansas City By Harrison Weber DKS M01NKS (IDPAi Iowa's energy pulu'v count ii will be drafting j "position paper" for presentation at the Project Independence hear- ings at Kansas City month Juu.i is ,-.f fru states that has nno agency to speak fur it in the energy field, those close lo Hie scene hope Iowa's report will carry more weight than usual The thrust of Project In. dependence, which pro- posed by former 1'resident N'lxon, is ID make the I'nited States self-reliant as far as its energy needs by istsi. .Icihn Millhone, Iowa's ener- gy policy director, feels one of the most critical problems facing the country today is whether the government should abandon its fuel alloca- tion program. Various federal officials have recommended this course of action. Millhone favors continuation of the fuel allocution program. Irrational 'It's utterly irrational nn Harrison Weber the one hand to abandon the fuel allocation system and mi the other hand say that it's important that people con- SITU- energy." Miilhune com- mented in an mien lew. "due of the things 1 think should be said at the Kansas City meeting is the critical need dir a cohesive rational federal energy policy." Millhmie said. "An awful lot nf people don't believe there is an ener- gy shortage. It's important that government, both federal and state, be credible when we deal with energy matters. "We can't have a credible state program if the federal program is to conserve energy tin one hand and we don't need to have a fuel allocution program on the other." National Level At the national level. Millhone noted, most of the attention has been given tn gasoline. The problem in Iowa, he said is not so much gasoline :is is heating oil. propane and middle level distillates. "We are still getting calls from throughout low a from heating oil distributors, who are running short of fuel. We are still making allocations daily from our state poo! to meet these shortages The operation we started last fall is still going on; we have four people working on this in the civil defense headquarters. "We know Northern Natural lias has informed its largest intcrruptible customers it will have no natural gas for them by the year 1977. This is a very critical energy problem, probably the most critical en- ergy problem Iowa faces to- day. "Northern serves two-thirds of the natural gas customers in the state and we'll have to Expect lowans to Obey Speed By Jerry Mursener PES MOINES (UPI) Deputy Public Safety Commis- sioner Robert Holetz, conced- ing thai many motorists are disobeying speed limits, said Monday he believes most lowans will voluntarily return to the 55-miIe-an-hour max- imum once the summer tour- ist season ends. Holetz said "out of state drivers have been a bad influ- ence on Iowa drivers" because they hwe failed to comply with the lowei speed limit imposed on March 1. "Quite a few troopers have told me there is a dispropor- tionate number of speeders from out of Iowa. When we gel them out of the state, I believe Iowa drivers will slow down Holetz said. Without Thinking "What happens, and I do it too, is thai four or five cars pass you ajid you just speed up without thinking." Holetz said the highway palrol is continuing enforce- ment efforts and at least eight new radar units have been placed in operation on in- terstate and four-lane high- ways in recent weeks. In addition, he said the patrol was using "other than white unmarked cars on the roads and using the airplanes as much as we can." Writing Citations He said, "I don't believe the enforcement is getting more lax and the record still shows that we are writing a sub- stantial number of citations." Holetz said about "twice as many citations are being written as last and add- ed that slate troopers are "spending as much time on the highways as we can afford. "There is no doubt people are speeding up and we ex- pected that during the summer months. We hope it will go down again." He said the major problem is thai "manpower is limiled and we have lo find some mid- dle ground because we have other things to do." Something Dramatic He said Ihc current program does not exclude the possibility (hat a major en- forcement campaign may be forthcoming and "we will do something dramatic." Holetz said despite motor- ists' complaints he is not cer- tain "the problem of trucks is as serious as some people Ihmk it is." He said Ihe speed limit for all vehicles is the same for the first time rather than a lower speed limit for the trucks. "I believe the truck problem is more of a psy- chological one than a real problem." Holetz said. "In the past, people did not face the possibility of regular- ly being passed by trucks because the trucks were under a lower speed limit. For the first time, people are being passed by trucks Juveniles Accused In Vehicle Thefts NORTH LIBERTY-John- son county authorities Monday reported that four North Lib- erty juveniles, ages 14 through 17, have been turned over to juvenile authorities following the theft of a car and van from the Holiday trailer court Saturday evening. The juveniles were seen attempting lo rifle a soft drink machine and coin-operated dryers at the court, authori- ties said. The two vehicles were re- covered five miles west of N'orth Liberty after being lo- cated by a state conservation officer. Thefts From Park Area Bring Notice IOWA CITY-Johnson county Sheriff Gary Hughes issued a warning Monday that campers and boaters in the Coralville reservoir area should be cautious about leav- ing equipment unattended. Hughes' warning came in the wake of a rash of com- plaints by boaters and camp- ers about articles being stolen. Typical of the complaints were losses reported by Leona Zundel, 1125 A avenue, Mar- ion. She reported Sunday the theft of a 20-horsepowcr out- board motor, gas tank, anchor and ski rope. The Zandel boat was set adrift with the drain plug pulled in an apparent attempt to sink it. Sheriff Hughes deplored what he called "the usual hab- it of leaving a camp unatlend- ed when a family only uses it on weekends." He also urged boaters to not leave valuable equipment or accessories in the water un- attended for any length of time. Mrs. Lawrence Goodman, Iowa City, reported almost worth of fishing equipment, food and camping supplies stolen between Wednesday and Saturday from their camp at the West Over- look. The llawkeye Sailing club also recently reported its boat taken. The boat was recovered Registration at Tri-County Set WHAT CHEER Registra- tion for the Tri-County Community school district will continue through Wednesday from 8 a.m. to noon, and 1 to p.m. Students should be regis- tered at the centers they will attend.

Crisis 1'asis Millhone he thinks a lot of within the federal '-'nMTnm'Mit tlie enemy problem is not something that is going to be solved on a en- sis basis by the year IMSfl "It's not something thai ought to he deal! with through a patriotic he said. The Midwest hearings in Kansas Citv on Sept. Ill-IS by the Federal Fnergy Admin- istration offer a ehanee for Ihe stales to become a major voice in this griming aware- ness that the I'. S. needs to have a national energy policy Millhone declared. Any policy statement would have to be cleared by the en- ergy policy council. but council members lu'.ve dis- cussed the situation on various invasions and Miilhune be- lieves he is accurately reflect- ing the position of Ihe council members A staff report has been circulated to council members on the current energy' situa- tion and a look at future needs. Standby Fuel It points out that since Northern has announced substantial curtailments in natural gas to its large in- dustrial customers and elect- rical generation customers, a greater load will be assumed by the scarce allocated fuels now used for standby purpos- es. Although coal may be used to fill part of this energy sup- ply gap, the gap will have to be closed by a combination of intensive conservation and greater use of scarce fuels. The propane supply picture currently looks good, but increased reliance by industri- al interruptible natural gas customers in this fuel will strain current supplies and a serious shortage is possible by January or February. The silver anniversary of the Midwest Old Settlers and Threshers Reunion will be held Aug. 29- Sept. 2 in Mt. Pleasant. Pictured here are steam engines shown last year.
