For 1975 models, the EPA is! adding a highway test to meet' objections to dynamometer cold engines on a treadmill sort of device. That will mean a cost of about a test in this fiscal year and a test in fiscal 1976, the GAO estimated. The OMB's proposed manda- tory labeling program, on the othen hand, would involve the Bureau of Standards' publishing of test procedures, the car- makers' certifying their own cars' economy with some gov- ernment confirmation and fed- eral action against label-law violators, the GAO said. Those confirming tests would be handled on a contract basis using the road tests that Ferry road Point road. NE and Center partments prefer with a roughly estimated cost of to per test, the GAO said. As for the merits of the dif- ferent tes-ts, the study said, both "have advantages but, in our opinion, neither is decisively su- perior to the other."

He said 242 members of the staff were as- signed to inspect the 74 reactors either under construction or operating in 1974. Another 44 were assigned to inspecting the license holders that use ra- dioactive materials for industri- al and research purposes. Knuth said the third branch of his organization had 74 staff members and was responsible for safeguarding nuclear fuels from theft and diversion by un- authorized persons or nations. Inspectors Found During the last fiscal year, the commission's records show the reactor inspectors found violations, the materials inspectors found violations and the safeguards inspectors found 90 violations. On June 5, 1973, the AEC ad- dopted a three-level system of categorizing the seriousness of the violations it found. Category two are violations that, if not corrected, might lead to an oc- currence involving exposure beyond permissible limits. Cat- egory three are violations in- volving documentation and pro- cedural matters. According to the agency, there were 98 category one vio- lations, category two viola- tions and category three violations in the fiscal year 1974.

Street officials said it was feared that the water line breaks might have undermined the streets where the lines broke.
