Mich, (AP) Michigan will go on daylight savings time at 2 a.m. Sunday, Gov. .William G. Milliken said today in announcing lit- will take no steps to prevent the time change. Milliken said he would not request the U.S secretary of trans- portation to exempt Michigan from having its clocks set up an hour during (lie winter as well as the summer. Congress recently passed a winter DST law for the nation as a means of conserving energy but said states could seek an exemption if they could prove the switch would cause undue hardship. "The fact is, after an extensive review of the situation, we have teen unable to substantiate undue statewide hardship or an energy savings on standard the governor said. "I will therefore not seek an exemption." Milliken referred in his statement to the problem DST will bring to school children who will have to leave for school "in the predawn darkness. "Congress specifically recognized that state and local authori- ties for the most part would have to deal with the school children Milliken said. "In Michigan, the school attendance problems can be and arc being solved with a slight adjustment in hours by individual local school Milliken said. The governor said estimates indicate Michigan will have a sizeable energy savings under DST. "Detroit Edison, for example, estimates a savings of 50 million kilowatt hours of clectricty annually coming at peak hours, and a ycar-around saving of 2 million gallons of oil and tons of coal." Milliken said exempting the state would put residents "out of step with the rest of the nation and could cause economic and job disruptions at a time when Michigan already is feeling adverse Impact from the energy crisis." The governor also referred to the fact that Michigan citizens voted more than a year ago to put the state on DST during the warmer months. Until that time, Michigan was on the same lime as New York for six months and with Chicago the rest of the year. The act by Congress effectively puts Michigan on DST year- around. Milliken made his decision Thursday night after lengthy talks with aides. All but two states Indiana and Hawaii apparently will set their clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, although four other states have applied for exemptions and other parts of the nation could be exempted by slate legislation. Indiana has. passed legislation in the past exempting it from daylight time, and the state was excluded from the new bill. Hawaii was exempted because of its location near the Equator, where Ihere is little seasonal variation in the number of daylight hours. Under the legislation, President Nixon or his designated representalive can exempt any state from daylight lime if the state's governor can show the time change would work undue hardship of lhat remaining on standard time during the winter months would save more fuel. Arizona, Oregon and Kenlucky have applied for exemptions, according to the Uniform Time Office, and Idaho has requested that its area under mountain lime be exempted. All four requesls are under advisemcnl, Ihe office says, and Transportation Secretary Claude Brincgar was to make a ruling as the President's representative late today. ARMS SMUGGLING PLOT British Quiz 2nd American Girl By ED BLANCHE Associated Press Writer LONDON (AP) Security police seized a second young American girl today for ques- tioning about arms smuggling and international terrorism. Scotland Yard said she was a "known associate" of Allison Clothing Can Ruin A Woman (Or Man) By LINDA DEUTSCH Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) Singer Belle Midler is No., 1 on Mr. Blackwcll's list of the 10 worst dressed women of 1973. No. 10 is a man: rock music star David Bowie. For only the second time in 14 years of issuing the list, Black- well included a man. The designer explained, "If they want to face the public as a woman, they deserve to make the list." He described Bowie as "a cross between Joan Craw- ford and Marlene Deitrich doing a glitter revival of 'New Faces'." The other man who made the list in another decade is comedian Milton Berle. Berle dressed as a woman on his weekly television show to earn that title. The 1973 list also includes such persons as Britain's Prin- cess Anne and Jacqueline Onassis. Blackwell, saving his most cutting remarks for Miss Midler, a news conference in the drawing room of his mansion Thursday, "She looks like she took pot luck in a laundromat. "Unlike Phyllis Diller, who worked at being bad, Bette Midler loves her said Blackwell. "She is really taking it seriously. She has put the worst of nostalgia together. Nothing really looks right on her. "1 don't know where she got that push-up he added. "That went out years ago" He said he judged her personal wardrobe rather than her stage costumes. The worsl dressed, named by Blackwell in order of ranking from one to 10. were: Miss Midler, Princess Anne, actress Racqucl Welch, tennis star Billie Jean King, Mrs. Onassis. actresses Elke Summer and Sarah Miles, Ihe Andrews Sisters, actress Liv Oilman and Bowie.

The second girl arrived by jumbo jet from New York and was still being questioned at London Airport three hours later. Airport sources said she was in her early 20s. She was not identified. A politician and the Times of London called on the British government to try Miss Thompson and the two Moslem men seized with her. Prime Minister Edward PRINCESS ANNE Heath's Conservative govern- ment was reported considering deporting the trio to the United States to avoid the reprisals likely from other terrorists should they be tried and sen- tenced to prison. Stanley Davis of the opposi- tion Labor party and the Times said they should be tried for gun-running and plotting terrorist raids as a warning to guerrillas not to try anything in Britain. Those being held are Allison Thompson, 18, a Santa Bar- bara, Calif., waitress and model; Abdelkrib El-Hakkaoui, U.S. Rejects Gas Closing On Saturday BETTE MIDLER By BILL NEIKIRK Associated Preat Writer WASHINGTON (AP) The Federal -Energy -Office decided against seeking Satur- day closings of gasoline stations as a way to cut fuel consumption further. "U is definitely an energy office spokesman said. "Saturday closings would just wreck recreation outlets in the country, and it's a big business." Federal energy chief William E. Simon had said as late as a week ago that the Saturday- closing move was under serious consideration. Now, he feels the measure is not needed to deal with the gasoline shortage. The energy office has already asked the nation's gasoline stations to close on Sundays to discourage con- sumption. A high percentage have complied. Simon said the Sunday-closing request will become mandatory if he gets the power from Congress. As for the government's con- servation moves, Simon said after a news conference Thurs- day: "We feel we've got everything in place necessary to lick this problem." During the news conference, he and other energy officials said the response from the public on government conser- vation measures has given new hope that gasoline rationing can be avoided. A high energy of- ficial said later, however, that the key lest will come this month as gasoline production is cut. Simon said major oil com- panies have agreed to en- courage the voluntary 10- gallon-pcrcuslomer limit on service stations sales. Com- pany-owned stalions will en- force that limit, he said. He said lhat gasoline con- sumption continued to decline in December, but added the sav- ings fell far short of the 20 per cent reduction considered necessary. On Feb. 1, he said, the energy office will announce another gasoline price increase In com- pensate service stations for their loss of sales volume because of the fuel shortage. Hy March 1. he said, gasoline prices nationwide will average 8 to 11 cents per gallon higher than the level prevailing in December. The increased cost of foreign oil Is a major reason for the expected rise. The rwrfy nlfiiT lists the oil shortfall al 2.7 million barrels daily as n result nf Ihe Arab oil cutoff. Siniiin said Ihe adminis- Iralion is using a maximum shortage figure just to be on Ihe safe side if the cutoff continues nnd conservation measures don't reduce demand as much as expected. In San Clemente, Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said President Niion'Hs'prsiWring personal initiatives to try to solve the energy crisis, but said details wouldn't be disclosed until next week. Kissinger called the Arab embargo "increasingly less appropriate" and said Nixon's moves would seek to build cooperation between the oil- producing and oil-consuming nations. The cutoff was initiated in late October after the Mideast (See back page, sec. l, col. 6) INDEX SECTION ONE Editorials..............PageZ Twin Cities News.......Page 3 Woman's Sectin Pages 4, 5, ABB Laiders............Page Obituaries.............Page 12 SECTION TWO Area Highlights........Page 13 Sports............

Police said Miss Thompson and were picked up Saturday on a London air- port bus after she arrived from Los Angeles with five automa- tic pistols and 150 rounds of ammunition in her luggage and made contact with the Moroc- can. Naseen arrived in London Monday. "We cannot shuffle off res- ponsibility onto other govern- ments for fear of Arab said Davis. The Times commented: "It is templing both for the authori- ties and for members of the public to think that they ought to be sent packing as soon as possible to avoid danger and embarrassment. The tempta- tion must be resisted." Some legislators charged the government was trying to hush up the case to puuitte the Arab oil countries. The government denied this. Police sources said detectives questioning the trio have decided they had no connection with such known Arab terrorist organizations as Al Fatah and Black September. The detec- tives were reported to believe they were part of a Moroccan organization dedicated to the overthrow of King Hassan, and the Times said they were part of a plot to kill or kidnap the Moroccan ambassador, Ab- dellah Chorfi. Some newspapers said U. S. authorities tipped'off the Bri- tish after the arms were spot- ted by an X-ray inspection of the girl's luggage at the Los Angeles airport. They said the security men did not move in on her then because her bag went into the baggage com- partment of the plane, and therefore there was no risk of a hijacking attempt.

ENERGY CRISIS CREATES 'GHOST' AIRPOKT: 'Twas a week after Christmas, and the only person moving in what was once Ihe world's busiest air- port, was a solitary porter, cleaning the recenty- vacated United Air Lines terminal at Chicago's Midway Airport. United ceased operations at Mid- way this week, due in part to cutback in flights caused by energy crisis. Midway, the world's busiest airport in the 1950s, will lose American, TWA, and Delta flights later this month. (AP Wirephoto) ;
