There is a sufficient supply of gasoline at all German stations. However, to avoid hoarding and fire hazards, gasoline will not be sold by the container.

Conservationists vs. developers Lake Tahoe endangered By BRENDAN RILEY STATELINE, Nev. (AP) Edged by winter snow, Lake Tahoe is a royal blue crystal coveted by conservationists for its clarity and quiet and by developers for its com- mercial value in casinos and cabins. The serene, icy beauty of the lake belies the intense le- gal wrangling that continues year-round for control of what Mark Twain once called "the rarest picture the whole earth can afford." Massive anti-pollution ef- forts already are under way to preserve the lake, which is nestled feet high in the Sierra Nevada. An 982 million sewage export system is 90 per cent complete and appar- ently has solved the problem of sewage seepage into wa- ters. But tourists continue to throng the resort area straddling the California-Ne- vada border. Scientists say that means there is still a threat of .increased algae growth that already has cast a green tint to once-blue shoreline waters. Attention now is focused on siltation and drainage from construction activity, oily streets and parking lots, nu- trient-rich golf courses and lawns and areas stripped of natural growth. Much of the effort to main- tain the Tahoe Basin's fragile environment is in the hands of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, a bi-state agency that was created in 1970 despite bitter opposition from local interests. The Lake Tahoe agency is using restrictive zoning to control construction. It also is writing defences to more than 1250 million in claims and lawsuits from people who ar- gue that their Tahoe property was unfairly devalued in the zoning process. Developers continue pres- sure to build everything from summer cottages and con- dominiums to 10-storey ca- sinos, reflecting the growing popularity of Tahoe as a rec- reation area. The basin's pop- ulation of about can swell to on summer weekends. The three Nevada and two California counties that ring the lake still hold mixed views about the agency. Pete Hollick, deputy director of the agency, says the counties fear that rulings against the agency in one of the many condemnation lawsuits might leave local governments foot- ing the bill for damages. The leading local govern- ment opponent of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is Douglas County, Nev., where commissioners have said they will allow grading to start next spring on two multi-mil- lion dollar casinos. The TRPA's efforts to de- termine land use capabilities in the Tahoe Basin also have drawn fire from the con- servationist Sierra Club. The group has gone to court claiming that the TRPA has failed to slow development. It backs its claim with data on TRPA approval of a major shopping centre and casino construction or improve- ments. The TRPA hopes the prob- lems of urbanization can be solved through its regional plan which calls for a popu- lation ceiling of about and generally allows a max- imum of 30 per cent land dis- turbance at building sites. Another way of controlling excessive urbanization is through purchase of private land by the federal govern- ment and states. The federal government al- ready owns more than half the basin land. California and Nevada control roughly 10 per cent and the rest remains in private hands. TRPA spokes- man Hollick says the pro- posed goals call for public ownei ship of 85 per cent of the basin. Parents who can't figure out what to do with the lad in the family who's not young enough to be a child nor old enough to be an adult, may be interested in the Young Adventure Holiday organized by British Airways and the British Student Travel Centre. The holidays are designed for 12 to 15-year-olds and combines a month of such activities as sailing, canoeing and riding in England, Wales, Holland and France. Each activity is supervised and each group has its own leader for the month. Groups will leave New York for Britain and the trip to south Wales. The first 11 days include dinghy sailing on Lake Llangorse, riding ponies through the Black Mountains and canoeing in England. Then the boys take the boat to Amsterdam for six days of cruising the canal. There are stops along the way. On the 19th day the boys leave Holland and travel to Ardeche in France for more canoeing and riding; the last Cold cash rides on dog teams Canada's first far-northern sweepstakes are hitched to a national championship dogsled race over frozen Great Slave Lake.
