The three emis.'iiijns to he lim- ited are nitrogen oxklc, monoxide and hydrocarbons. Nitrogen oxides woukt lie cut back in two sUigc.s. On Jan. 1, 1973, nitrcgen would lie limited to 75 per cent of wl'al has been measured from vehicles. On Jan. I. 197G, the required cutback be 10 10 per cent of current emissions. Nitrogen oxide, toxic in large concentrations contributes to the forming of smog in the pres- ence cf sunlight. On Jan. 1, emissions of carben monoxide ami hydrocar- bons would be restricted to 10 per cent of what government standards currently allow. Carbon monoxide interferes with oxygen transport in the blood. Hydrocarbons react in a similar way to nitrcgen oxides in forming smog. NEED LAW The proposals, announced jointly by Transport Minister Don Jamieson and Environment Minister ,'ack Davis in a news release, would require amend- ments lo the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. The release said that man- ufacturers, imp u r t c r s and petroleum companies wil! be in- vited to submit represents1' is on the proposals. Emissbn standards would be based on a vehicle's "useful life." Measures v.'culd have to be taken U, ensure that Ihc standards were met for the first 50.000 miles of a vehicle's life. In figures, the proposals would restrict grams of carbon monoxide emitted per mile to 3.4 in compared to the cur- rent limit of 39 grains per mile. Hydrocarbons would bo rc- i stridcd to (I'll of a pram per j mile in compared lo the current limifalion of grams per mile. There is no limit n! present on emissions of nitrogen oxide. The limit in would be 3 grains per mile, which wou'd hi! cut to 0.4 of a gram per mile in lD7fi. The .'mnouneement said ninfor vehicles have been responsible for approximately per cent of total man-made carbon monox- ide, fiO pei1 cent of hydrocarbons and nearly 50 per cent of nitro- gen oxides put into the urban atmosphere. after this country's lonely and August with Nixon's stubborn stand in the world monetary crisis.

Nixon received confirmation from Pompidou that the Euro- pean C o m m o n Market was ready to open important trade negotiations with the United Slates in the near future. Washington looks to these trade negotiations for conm- slons particularly on grain, to- bacco and citrus would allow it to start reversing lire massive balanee-of-pay- menls deficit from which the entire dollar crisis has resulted. A communique on tiie Nixon- Pompidcu summit made no mention of the controversial U.S. 10-per-cent import sur- charge. This omission suggests that Nixon retains the sur- charge as a trump card in final bargaining.
