Light tax voted on Petroleum Washington a the House ways and Means committee has voted to impose a relatively Light new tax bite on the Petroleum Industry for the immediate future. The tax writing panel climaxing a Marathon meeting tuesday night tentatively agreed to impose a new Windfall profits Levy. But the proposal would raise virtually no additional Revenue from american oilmen who would be exempt from the provision if they pump their Energy crisis generated profits Back into the Hunt for new Energy sources. The committee also gave temporary approval to a Par tial phase out of the Petroleum Industry a 22 per cent depletion allowance. The allowance is Worth about $2 billion annually to Petroleum companies. This phase out plan is expected to bring in about $150 million next year when it would take effect. However by 1981, if fully effective it could raise some $2.8 billion. Under the current allowance 22 per cent of Gross income from Oil and natural Gas property can be deducted from taxable income up to a top of 50 per cent of taxable net income. The committee also tentatively agreed to several changes in the tax treatment of Domestic Petroleum company income earned abroad but these also Are expected to yield relatively Little new Revenue. The committee decided to use a sliding scale based on rising Oil prices to phase out the depletion allowance Over five years a but agreed that the allowance could not drop below 15 per cent for the first 3,000 barrels of Oil daily per producer. Following that five year period however the allowance could disappear when 75 per cent of All Oil is not eligible for the allowance Over a years time. The committee essentially went along with the administrations proposal for a Windfall profits tax. House followed by trial in the Senate and a two thirds vote a or 67 senators a for conviction.

Wilson Haldeman a attorney said he would ask the appeals court for a stay before the Day is out. Wilson also said he would ask the court to restrain Sirica from sending the report to the House before the court reviews his decision.

Sirica ruled monday that the sealed report and a Satchel filled with evidence should be turned Over to the House judiciary committee. Sirica gave parties in the Case until 5 . Today to Appeal his decision. Courage to stand and fight for what you think is right and that is what i intend to Nixon also argued against the senators claim that it would be an act of statesmanship declaring a it would be bad statesmanship and it would mean that our system of government would be changed for All presidents and All generations in the after Nixon a appearance Buckley said he a would have been stunned if the president had heeded his Call for resignation so soon after it was made.

Nixon opening a news conference with the National association of broadcasters in Houston tuesday night said. A we still have an anticipated shortage of perhaps 5 to 8 per cent in the United earlier Federal Energy chief William e. Simon told newsmen Here a gasoline is going to Cost More and so is heating a shortage such As that mentioned by Nixon Means americans would have about the same gasoline Supply As during the first week of March when Long lines at gasoline stations seemed to vanish suddenly. A 5 to 8 per cent shortage would be a great improvement Over the 14 to 20 per cent shortages of february when motorists waited in line for hours. The return of Arab Oil Nixon said would not close the Gap completely although he said it would Rule out rationing and mean the end of the sunday ban on gasoline sales. It will be necessary to continue our voluntary program of car pooling and also of slower driving a Nixon said of the anticipated shortage. Simon had explained earlier in the Day that As the higher priced Arab Oil returns to the . Market it will raise the average . Cost of Oil creating increases in fuel prices to the consumer. Neither Simon nor Nixon 37 plan Auto insurance approved Raleigh apr despite objections by insurance commissioner John Ingram a Senate committee today approved legislation to adopt a plan establishing 37 classifications for Auto insure Nace in North Carolina. Before approving the measure sponsored by sen. Gordon Allend person. The Senate insurance committee voted Down 7-6 a Bill which would prohibit the use of age As a Factor of in determining Auto liability rates. This Bill had been Given tentative approval by the Senate last week and later was shuttled so a 37 plan on 2a estimated the extent of the Price Impact but Simon s Deputy John c. Sawmill has guessed the Price of gasoline could hit 70 to 80 cents per gallon at the pump this summer. Energy officials Hope these High prices will at least take the sting out of the remaining shortage by causing motorists to voluntarily reduce their gasoline use. Simon and Nixon also said that Energy problems in general would not disappear with the shipments of Arab Oil. The mandatory Federal Petroleum allocation program would continue but Industry and agriculture would be Able to operate a at full capacity a Nixon said. He criticized Congress for failing to act on his legislative proposals to stimulate increased Energy production from Coal Oil shale the naval Petroleum Reserve at Elk Hills calif., and other sources and to remove Federal regulation from natural Gas production. A the greatest shortage of Energy is the Lack of Energy on the Pat of the Congress a he said. Meanwhile in the Middle East american oilmen said Arab Oil production could be restored within a few Days. Husband becomes Spittoon Potter holds human ashes panel s bipartisan approach cracked i Washington a a White House request to let president Nixon a lawyer take part in House judiciary committee impeachment proceedings is cracking the committees bipartisan approach. Republican members generally support the request of White House lawyer James d. St. Clair the democrats View it As an attempt to turn the impeachment investigation into a Normal court proceeding. The split which could have a far reaching effect on the committees final recommendation surfaced tuesday at separate party caucuses of. Committee members. No final decisions were reached at either meeting but party positions clearly appeared in the making on the Legal Point. St. Clair has sent two letters to John Doar the committees special counsel for impeachment asking for the right to c r o s a examine witnesses present evidence and otherwise participate in the investigation As counsel for the president. Such actions by defense counsel Are Normal in Ordinary court proceedings which Are conducted on an adversary basis. But Doar chairman Peter w. Rodino jr., d-n.j., and most democratic members insist impeachment cannot be equated with Normal judicial practices. Ii of i i i. Armand Henault West Palm Beach Fla.
