GAO: Cost Hike in New Mileage Test  WASHINGTON (AB) _ The;  General Accounting Office said 1  Saturday that government pro-1 grams testing the fuel economy of automobiles could cost up to 24 times as much per test if a White House budget office directive is followed.  Rep. Henry lteuss (D-Wis.); requested the study April 301 when he learned that the Office j of Management and Budget, in 1  response to autombobile-in-i dustry criticisms, planned to I transfer the testing program out; of the Environmental Protection Agency this year.  On May 17, the OME ordered the Bureau of Standards to draw up a new testing procedure — which the GAO says is not “decisively superior” to the EPA test.  In the spring of 1973, at Pres- 1  ident Nixon’s order, the EPA developed a voluntary fuel economy testing and labeling program using data from its emission testing program, which is required by law.  For 1975 models, the EPA is adding a highway test to meet manufacturers’ objections to testing with a dynamometer cold engines on a treadmill sort of device. That will mean a cost j of about $73 a test in this fiscal year and $81 a test in fiscal 1976, the GAO estimated.

During an interview in his of-said the regulatory arm of the commission presently had a staff of 390. He said 242 members of the staff were assigned to inspect the 74 reactors either under construction or, operating in 1974. Another 441 were assigned to inspecting the | 8.839 license holders that use radioactive materials for industrial 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 unauthorized persons or nations.  Inspectors Found  During the last fiscal year, the commission’s records show the reactor inspectors found 1,148 violations, the materials inspectors found 2,095 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 occurrence involving exposure beyond permissible limits. Category three are violations involving documentation and procedural matters.  According to the agency, there were 98 category one violations, 2.132 category two violations and 1,103 category three violations in the fiscal year 1974. Concerning just the category one violations, 20 involved reactors, 77 involved materials and one involved nuclear safeguards.  air in their faucets and their water might be a little dirty for j a while.

Youths For Possession  Three 18-year-old Linn county men and three boys were arrested by a Linn deputy near the Fairfax quarry Friday night and charged with possession of marijuana.  Arrested were Stephen A. Church, Ely; John E. Lehner and Joe J. Jakoubec, both of Fairfax; a 16-year-old Cedar Rapids boy, a 17-year-old rural Cedar Rapids boy and a 17-year-old Fairfax boy.  A deputy was sent to the quarry to check out a complaint of a loud party and discovered a group of people on top of a railroad car near the quarry.  He reported they failed at first to respond to an order to stand up and put their hands up, but that they did so after he fired a warning shot.  The boys were released to their parents and Lehner was released on order of Sheriff Walter Grant.
