Agnew was considering resigning. The deputy White House press secretar- y, Gerald L. Warren, also responded with a "no comment" when asked of President Nixon had full confidence in Agnew. The Washington Post quoted an unnamed Republican leader as saying that Agnew was considering resigning, possibly this week. A spokesman for Agnew said, "I am quite sure" he has no such plan. UNDER CLOSE QUESTIONING by re- porters this afternoon, Warren made it clear he was acting on Nixon's orders not to comment on the matter. He declined even to comment on a question about whether the position would encourage speculation that Agnew might be prepared to resign. The unidentified "senior Republican fig- who said he spent two hours with Agnew late last week attempting to talk mm out of the decision, predicted the res- ignation may come this week, according to the newspaper. ONE UNNAMED ASSOCIATE of Ag- new's said the resignation would be "un- thinkable. I would be shocked flabbergasted." Agnew was notified Aug. 1 by U.S. Attor- ney George Beall that lie was under inves- tigation as part of an inquiry jnto alleged kickbacks by Maryland contractors to state political officials. Agnew said he was innocent. The Post said Agnew repeatedly refused requests from the newspaper for either an interview or a direct comment on his re- ported discussions of resignation. Agnew according to the Post, said he would not respond to stories from unnamed sources. J. MARSH THOMSON, the Vice Presi- dent's press secretary, told UPI that he 'the story to be "very far off the mark." "I did not consult closely with the Vice President when I first heard about Thomson said, "and I am quite sure that this is not all what he plans to do." "I don't regard this current story as hav- ing any more to it than the many others that have been coming and getting undue attention due to the current atmosphere Thomson said. Vice President Agnew Minor NM gasoline shortage seen Prizes galore photo by Rktard RoWe) Jonis Phillips, 16, not only has her hands full of prizes from the State Fair but the top of her head as well. Janis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Phillips Jr. of Albuquerque, is among the thousands of New Mexico teen- agers flocking to this year's Fair. ByKATYWOOLSTON Tribune Staff Writer New Mexico's service stations today in a flux of closings and openings may see a minor shortage of gasoline during the last of this month. Ray Primmer, manager of emergency services for the American Automobile Association in New Mexico, said, "It appears we will have a minor shortage dur- ing the last week or 10 days of September." He said that other cities in the nation, especially Boston, are expecting to see crucial shortages of gasoline at that time. MR. PRIMMER said he did not know the reasons behind the expected short- age. It comes on the heels of sporadic openings and clos- ings around the state today of service stations protest- ingPhase IV ceilingson retail sales of gasoline. The New Mexico stations are following a national shutdown trend. Most stations in Albu- querque, however, re- mained open today as a group of several dealers were meeting to decide whether or not to shut down. And the City Transporta- tion Department today said it was keeping a close watch for possible shut- down by stations. Primmer said he feels the1 Albuquerque stations will not act today, however. Fair features cutting horses By HOWARD BRYAN Tribune Staff Writer Performing with the grace and ease of a ballet dancer, a world champion cutting horse jumped off to an early and wide lead to- day in open cutting horse competition at the New Mexico State Fair. Sugar Vaquero, a quarter horse owned by S. Currie and Brazos Bend Ranch of Houston won al- ready this year and is said to be the biggest money winner in the history of cutting horse competition. RIDDEN BY Bobby Sikes, the horse cut a series of calves from a herd of cattle in the Horse Arena and kept them from return- ing to the herd in nimble- footed maneuvers that brought applause from the spectators. Contest finals will be held at 7 tonight in Tingley Coli- seum prior to the rodeo show. State Fair livestock judg- ing continued at a heavy pace today with sheep, goats and swine competing for championship honors. The Junior Breeding Sheep Show opened with the judging of fine wool breeding sheep and the top honors going to Jeffery Perez of the Torrance County 4-H Club. Young Perez exhibited the grand and reserve champion fine wool rams and ewes. JUDGES LOOKED over H amps hi res in the Open Swine Show and awarded champion ribbons to ani- mals exhibited by Jack Duffey of Lovington and Kenneth Carter of Hatch. Judy Stubblefield of Amarillo, Tex., showed the champion Nubian in the Dairy Goat Show, while top Saanen and Toggenburg honors went to goats exhib- ited by Stephen and Dan Consodine of Portage, Wis. Competition to select a 1974 State Fair Queen con- tinued today with the 21 candidates displaying their horsemanship abilities to judges in the coliseum. The rodeo at 8 tonight in the coliseum will feature the last of three personal appearances by country music star Charley Pride. IDEAL WEATHER condi- tions continued to prevail as the 12-day State Fair entered its seventh day. Monday attendance at the exposition was down slight- ly under the same day last year but the race track handle set a Monday re- cord. The exposition attracted visitors Monday, as compared with an attend- ance of on the same day last year. The Monday horse races attracted fans, about less than last year, but they posted a record parimutuel handle for the Continued on Page A-6 HEALSOsaidthatsta- tions in Las Cruces which earlier today were 50 per cent shut down, by late to- day were only 10 per cent shut. Deming, which had been 20 per cent shut down ear- lier today, on the other hand, later had 65 per cent of its stations closed. "All the majors are closed in Prim- mer said. Alaniogordo is 20 per cent closed, he added. "But 1 see no other prob- lems in New Mexico at this he added.. GALLUP STATIONS, which had led the protest in New Mexico with a seven- day shutdown, are open today. In Albuquerque, Ray- mond McDonald, president of the newly formed Albu- querque Dealers Associa- tion, was meeting today with association members to tell them about his infor- mal hearing Monday in Washington with Cost of Living Council (CLC) mem- bers. Mr. McDonald sjaid that CLC "Deputy Director James McLane indicated that prompt action would be taken and that there will be an upward adjustment in gas prices." He said that informed observers at that hearing determined that "prompt means anywhere from two days to a week. MR. MCDONALD had told the CLC Monday that 90 per cent of the gasoline retailers will go out of busi- ness unless the council al- lows them to raise prices. He said that "it became obvious to me during that hearing that the date on which they'v.e enacted Phase IV controls are quite unreal, even though they say they used a large con- sulting firm in the East." "It's obvious they have no real knowledge of the grass roots of the service station McDonald add- ed. HE SAID he felt grati- tude to Sen. Pete V. Domen- ici, who set up the hearing with the CLC, and said that the senator's effort on behalf of the dealers wasn't finished.

He called the UCF lunch- eon an apt occasion to talk about technology because "some of the finest techni- cal minds in the country are represented at Sandia (Laboratories) here in Albu- querque." Dr. Morgan Sparks, pres- ident of Sandia Laborato- ries, served as UCF kickoff chairman. He arranged for Mr. Lilley's appearance here. JOE S. REINHART is UCF campaign chairman and Joe Lopez is UCF vice chairman. Gov. Bruce King was among those attending the big kickoff luncheon. He said Bell Laboratories has "contributed signifi- cantly" to the devdlopment of new materials, medical electronics and the artifical larynx. HE CALLED "one of the greatest achievements" the discovery of the transitor for which Bell Laborato- ries scientists received Nobel prizes. He said the transistor spawned a billion solid- state electronics industry and made possible laser surgery, the pacemaker and miniaturized hearing aids. Lilley was presented with a large cartoon drawn by C. Earl (Mac) McGinnis, polit- ical cartoonist. He also re- ceived a wooden roadrun- ner. Mrs. Lilley was given an oval shaped Nambe bowl.

Would eliminate catalytic converters Hydrogen-powered cars may beat pollution standards (C) 1973 New York Times News Service NEW YORK A radical system aimed at meeting the legal limitation on auto engine emissions is being developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The concept involves the use of hydrogen as an additive to gasoline in modified versions of standard internal combustion eingines. It has shown "promising" results in laboratory tests but will not help power an auto for another two months. THE DEVELOPMENT is being carried out by the space agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory whose Ranger and Surveyor vehicles sccuted the moon as a prelude to the manned lunar landings. Engineers at the Pasadena, Calif., facility stressed that the work was in its early stages, with numerous difficult technical details still to be worked out. "It it too soon to talk about whether we really have a handle on being atye to meet the federal >ii said Harry Cotrill, the project manager, in a telephone interview. "We're quite excited by the results so far, but we have a long way to go." STARTING MONDAY, representatives of the na- tion's major auto manufacturers will be visiting the laboratory for a series of demonstrations of what has been accomplished so far. Dr. William H. Pickering, the laboratory's direc- tor, said the companies had been invited "to assess the utility of this system with a view to the possibility that they might wish to work cooperatively with us." The space agency has allocated for ths first six months of the effort. Pickering estimates that it might take a total of million to million to meet the emission standards now mandated for 1976 and 1977 under the federal Clean Air Act. A KEY COMPONENT of the JPL system, based largely on research conducted by an engineer named Jack Rupe, is a hydrogen generator that could be car- aboard the car. Cotrill predicted that a fully developed research vehicle able to meet the emission standards could be running about two years from now. "But after he said, "it would have to be engi- neered for mass production. It wouldn't be ready yet for the little old lady from Pasadena." The laboratory has bought two Chevrolet Impalas to be used as the research vehicles. The concept would be applicable to piston-engine airplanes as well as cars. A PRIME ADVANTAGE of the JPL approach, its proponents contend, is that it would meet auto-pollu- tion requirements without attaching catalytic devices to engine exiiausts, as planned by major Detroit car makers. Reservations have been widely expressed in the technical community about the auto capital's concen- tration on such catalytic devices. This is because of their cost, because of doubts Continued on Pipa A-6 ft ;
