DES MOINES (IDPA) -Iowa’s energy policy council will he drafting a “position paper” for presentation at the Project Independence hearings at Kansas City next month
Since Iowa is one of the few states that has one agency to speak for it in the energy field, those close to the scene hope Iowa’s report will carry more weight than usual The thrust of Project Independence, which was proposed by former President Nixon, is to make the United States self-reliant as far as its energy needs hv 19K5 John Millhone, Iowa’s energy policy director, feels one of the most critical problems facing the country today is whether the government should abandon its fuel allocation program. Various federal officials have recommended this course of action Millhone favors continuation of the fuel allocation program.
“It’s utterly irrational on
to have a fuel allocation program on the other.” National Ia*vel
At the national level, Millhone noted, most of the attention has been given to gasoline. The problem in Iowa, he said is not so much gasoline as it is heating oil, propane and middle level distillates.
“We are still getting calls from throughout Iowa from heating oil distributors who are running short of fuel We are still making allocations daily from our state pool to meet these shortages. The operation we started last fall is still going on; we have four people working on this in the civil defense headquarters
"We know Northern Natural lias has informed its largest interruptive customers it will have no natural gas for them by the year 1977 This is a very critical energy problem, probably the most critical energy problem Iowa faces today
“Northern serves two-thirds of the natural gas customers in the state and we’ll have to

find some way to meet the energy needs through coal, propane, oil, or some other means."
Millhone said he thinks a lot of people within the federal government realize the energy problem is not something that is going to he solved on a crisis basis by the year I MSO “It’s not something that ought to he dealt with through a patriotic jingo,” he said.
The Midwest hearings in Kansas City on Sept. IO 13 by the Federal Energy Administration offer a chance for the states to become a major voice in this growing awareness that the U. S. needs to have a national energy policy, Millhone declared.
Any policy statement would have to be cleared by the energy policy council, hut council members have dis-

the one hand to abandon the fuel allocation system and on the other hand say that it’s important that people conserve energy,” Millhone commented in an interview “One of the things I think should Im' said at the Kansas City meeting is the critical need for a cohesive rational federal energy policy,” Millhone said “An awful lid of people don’t believe there is an energy shortage. It’s important that government, both federal and state, be credible when we deal with energy matters “We can’t have a credible state program if the federal program is to conserve energy on one hand and we don’t need
many citations are being written as last year,” and added that state troopers are “spending as much time on the highways as we can afford.
“There is no doubt people are speeding up and we expected that during the summer months. We hope it will go down again."
He said the major problem is that “manpower is limited and we have to find some middle ground because we have other things to do.”
He said the current program does not exclude the possibility that a major enforcement campaign may be

DES MOINES (UPI) -Deputy Public Safety Commissioner Robert Holetz, conceding that many motorists are disobeying speed limits, said Monday he believes most Iowans will voluntarily return to the 55-mile-an-hour maximum once the summer tourist season ends.
Holetz said “out of state drivers have been a bad influence on Iowa drivers” because they have failed to comply with the lowe* speed limit imposed on March I “Quite a few troopers have told me there is a disproportionate number of speeders from out of Iowa. When we get them out of the state. I believe Iowa drivers will slow down again,” Holetz said
“What happens, and I do it too, is that four or five cars pass you and you just speed up without thinking.”
Holetz said the highway patrol is continuing enforcement efforts and at least eight new radar units have been placed in operation on interstate and four-lane highways in recent weeks.
In addition, he said the patrol was using "other than white unmarked cars on the roads and using the airplanes as much as we can.”
W riting Citations
He said, “I don’t believe the enforcement is getting more lax and the record still shows that we are writing a substantial number of citations.” Holetz said about “twice as
forthcoming and “we will do something dramatic."
Holetz said despite motorists’ complaints he is not certain “the problem of trucks is as serious as some people think it is." He said the speed limit for all vehicles is the same for the first time rather than a lower speed limit for the trucks,
"I believe the truck problem is more of a psychological one than a real problem,” Holetz said.
“In the past, people did not face the possibility of regularly being passed by trucks because the trucks were under a lower speed limit. For the first time, people are being passed by trucks ...”

He also urged boaters to not leave valuable equipment or accessories in the water unattended for any length of time.

cussed the situation on various occasions arid Millhone believes he is accurately reflecting tin' position of the council members
A staff report has been
circulated to council members on the current energy- situation and a look at future
It points out that since
Northern has announced substantial curtailments in natural gas to its large industrial customers and electrical generation customers, a greater load will be assumed by the scarce allocated fuels now used for standby purposes.
Although coal may he used to fill part of this energy supply gap. the gap will have to bt* closed by a combination of intensive conservation and greater use of scarce fuels
The propane supply picture currently looks good, hut increased reliance by industrial interruptive natural gas customers in this fuel will strain current supplies and a serious shortage is possible by January or February
