Removal Sought WASHINGTON AP The Labor Department asked a eral court Monday to remove the leaders of an Ohio sters union benefit fund for paying illegal fees of more than annually to the administrator In a suit filed in U.S District court in Dayton the ment accused the ad- ministrator and eight trustees of the Ohio Highway Drivers Welfare Fund of authorizing or permitting payments that were illegal under the 1974 federal pension reform law Robert C Knee Jr of Dayton the administrator and general counsel received fees of m 1975 and in 1974 That was a bigger in- come than paid the chairman of General Motors Polio Protection Lacking COLUMBUS Ohio AP State health officials concerned about a reappearance of measles among school children also estimate twice as many youngsters are not adequately immunized against As many as children have not received the four doses of vaccine necessary to be considered fully immunized against crippling poliomyelitis according to the state health department That number is probably said Dr Thomas Halpin chief of the communicable disease section It is based on a survey of children entering school during We haven't had a case of polio for a number of years re- ported said Halpin but undoubtedly the virus is still present The statewide level of polio immunization is about 70 per cent based on the 1974 study We want to see as close to a 100 per cent immunization level as Halpin said Halpin admits no one really knows how low the tion level must go before an outbreak of polio would occur The department's concern about the potential of an out- break is reflected in its decision to conduct immunization programs now instead of ing until October It may also be rooted in the department's experience with an unusually high number of measles cases reported recently Falls Zoning Vote Area Clarified Only parts of Falls Township precincts E and J will vote April 12 in the special election on zoning in those areas Eligible to vote are Falls Township E residents on the east side of Dresden Rd to Military Rd including Rd Parkway Dr Ridgewood Cir Martin Dr Norcross Rd and Dr Residents on the west side of Dresden Rd do not vote Falls

East Military Rd do not vote Balloting will be at the church at Military and Dresden Rds The Labor Department's chief attorney Carin A Clauss said the payments were far in excess of reasonable com- for services he tually rendered The government's complaint seeks the removal from office of Knee and the trustees restitution of all amounts paid on or after Jan i 1975 which exceeded reasonable ex- and other equi- table relief to protect the assets Among the trustees is liam Presser of Cleveland who was forced to resign last year as a trustee of the Teamsters Central States Pension Fund He refused under his Fifth Amendment rights to answer government attorneys probing that fund Sources said the government went to court after the trustees refused to meet the government's terms for a tiated settlement Mark Gertner a Toledo ney representing Knee and the Ohio welfare fund said the trustees changed the fee ture last year It is the intent of the trustees at all times to be and remain in full compliance with the pension law he said in a telephone interview The fund set up by trucking companies in the state and the Ohio Conference of Teamsters provides medical and dental benefits for Ohio sters Labor Department records show that Knee took over as administrator of the fund from his father in 1974 The records show the father also an ney was paid in 1972 and in 1973 The government's suit against the fund only goes back to Jan 1 1975 the date the pension law became effective Clauss said that trust fund payments to a plan fiduciary in the area of dollars annually for nothing more than his personal services is in our opinion simply unreasonable Storm Causes Deadly Crash Rain continued in the area Monday continuing the threat of some flooding in southeastern Ohio

reportedly died be- tween and 1 when he was swept off Appeal Of EPA Power Accepted WASHINGTON AP The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide how far the ment can go to make sure the nation's cleanest air gets no dirtier The justices voted to hear an appeal by many industries that the U.S Circuit Court of peals in Washington made a mistake when it ruled that the Environmental tion Agency has broad ity in guarding clean air The industry representatives claim that the strict clean-air regulations will prohibit growth by limiting the number of new plants that can be constructed The regulations if allowed to stand could cause the nation to lose its struggle to obtain energy the industry representatives said Under the 1970 Clean Air Act some air pollution is allowed Amendments to the act ever were used by the EPA to order states to protect those areas with better air quality than allowed under the act Those areas should not be sub- to significant the EPA has ordered Most of the clean-air areas are located in rural states or in states historically free of heavy manufacturing When the federal agency sued its standards it included only pollution from sulfur ide and participate matter most often associated with coal-burning power plants Industry representatives sued to strike down the standards for the two pollutants The Sierra Club a national group of environmentalists filed a related suit against the EPA in an attempt to force the regulations to include four er pollutants nitrogen oxide hydrocarbons carbon monoxide and petrochemical oxidants The Sierra Club sought to have its suit com- with the industry suits but the Supreme Court turned down the environmentalists appeal The Supreme Court com- both suits for its review The court also agreed to de- cide another clean air issue whether a company charged with criminally violating anti- pollution rules may defend it- self by challenging the legality of the rule A Detroit demolition firm Adamo Wrecking was charged with a criminal violation of the Clean Air Act by not following procedures for guarding against asbestos particle tion during the demolition of buildings Lower courts ruled that the company had no

adopted by the board in February there will be no classes Thursday and Friday April 7 and 8 officials said last night The calendar revision was prompted by the enacted legislation which amends the energy days waiver pasted in February It for waiver of up to 15 days for school closing due to the weather including the five days provided by permanent law The uys school districts mav waive up to M days for both fuel and weather causes but DO more than IS days for either category Senate BUI Itt sponsored by Sen Morris Jackson of Cleveland is expected to be signed into law this week Based on legal interpretation provided by Ohio School Boards Association it would require school districts that voluntarily elect to make up days in ad- dition to the 160 day minimum required by the temporary legislation to pay additional compensation to their em- ployes Local school officials mate each day made up on a voluntary basis would cost local taxpayers approximately Based on current financial
