Abnormal Cold Could Alter View
By Gordon Hanson
DES MOINES (AP) — Iowans will have adequate fuel supplies this winter unless the weather turns colder than normal, says John Millhone, state energy policy council director.
Motor vehicles, homes, businesses and most industries will have sufficient fuel, he said Saturday, adding:
“Spot shortages of natural gas and liquid propane gas are possible.”
His comments were in the EPC’s second quarterly report outlining the state’s energy supplies, consumption and conservation.
An EPC survey of coal in the state indicated on Nov. I stockpiles were 17.5 percent greater than normal.
However, the report said “the amount of natural gas available in Iowa in 1974 is 1.5 percent less than demand. In 1975, natural gas supplies will decrease 4 9 percent from 1974 levels.
The decrease will not affect homes and other customers whose contracts do not call for gas cutoffs during periods of heavy usage. In fact, supplies for these customers will increase slightly in 1975.
The demand for gasoline in Iowa decreased 3.1 percent in 1974, the EPC said. Demand for

Attacks on Dubcek Hint Czech Purge

WASHINGTON (AP) - Recent dispatches from Communist-ruled Czechoslovakia telling of propaganda attacks on Alexander Lubeck, the man who symbolized hope of political reform in 1968, will arouse deep concern for his safety.
Obviously something is brewing. Despite Czechoslovakia’s appearance of apathy, economic problems are creating political problems, especially among young people, and the now thoroughly Sovietized leadership doesn t want any symbols around.
Perhaps a new purge is around the comer, not only against Dubcek personally, but all who may still nurture some .sympathy for his views,
Dubcek headed the Czechoslovak Communist party briefly before Soviet and Warsaw

Deposed by the Russians, the once glittering public hero was allowed eventually to sink
into the obscurity of a clerkship in a Slovak forestry office.
Why denounce him now, after five years? After all. the 1963 episode did severe damage to the Soviet image.
The answer may be that it is risky for the ruling party in Prague to permit remnants of the 1968 thinking to continue unchallenged The party evidently has been having considerable trouble getting uni-v e r s i t y students to take seriously the ideological indoctrination that has been a hallmark of all higher education under Sovietized regimes.
It is estimated that university dropouts are running as high as 40 percent these days.
Apathy is also reflected in the regime's inability to get earnest work from younger elements of the labor force. Thus Czechoslovakia lags behind even other Communist nations in production of consumer durables, and that adds to public resentment.
