VOLUME NUMBER 2lili CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CKIJAH RAPIDS, IOWA, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 2, 1074 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON (UPI) Fed- eral Energy Administrator John Sawhill said Wednesday he has proposed lhal the government levy a 20- to 30-ccnt pcr-gallon refundable fee on gasoline. Sawhill said motorists would be able to gain their refund through the income tax system. "The refund would have to come through the withholding system although other mecha- nisms would have to be found to refund lo people who arc not part of the lax system, thai is (those) who don't pay income lax on a weekly or bi-weekly he said. "In order to really be effec- tive, a fee would have (o be somewhere in the 20-to-30-cenls range." StUII Fee As an example, he said that, if a motorist drove miles a year in a car that gol 20 miles per gallon, he would pay a refundable fee of But hc indicated lhal, if a motorist drove over a year or owned a car gelling less than 20 miles per gallon, all the money would not be refunded. Sawhill said hc has discussed the plan, along with several other energy conservation mea- sures, wilh "senior advisers" to President Ford. Sawhill was interviewed on Ihc NBC Today show. He said he was opposed to a straight non-refundable lax on gasoline. "1 don't think a straight lax would make sense but I do think some kind of a refundable fee might make sense because il would help poorer he added. lie said the U. S. must "lake some lough sleps lo cut back on our usage of energy" lo prove lo thc rest of Ihc world that the na- lion is "serious about energy conservation."

Sawhill said. Selection of Jury Proceeds Slowly WASHINGTON (AP) U. S. District Judge John Sirica Wednesday resumed the pains- taking process of selecting a jury in the Watergate cover-up trial.

As the second day of the trial opened, Sirica advised the new group of 175 prospective jurors to be aware of "the solemnity of your duties." Excused .Seventy-nine of Ihc 175 per- sons called Wednesday asked to be excused and Sirica began questioning each individually about their reasons. Some 90 members of an initial pool of 155 potential jurors were excused Tuesday after saying they would be unable to sit through the trial, expected to last at least until Christmas for personal reasons. For a day, the 12 jurors and six alternates will be re- quired to shuttle back and forth to Sirica's courtroom from a nearby hotel. On Tuesday, Sirica noted two years of Watergate news cover- age and asked Ihe first pool of prospective jurors lo come be- fore him: "Is there anyone who cannot ground. Direct or indirect con- ncclion to thc defendants, the prosecutors or anyone vaguely connected with thc Watergate scandals also was pursued in questioning that took up most of the five-hour court day.
