Congress renews blast on oil import program WASHINGTON (CP) The United States oil-import pro- gram came under leuewed at- ack in congressional hearings tere, with one expert charg- ng that "a central failure of the irogram" was that It restricted mports from secure, friendly lelghbors such as Canada and Venezuela. David Freeman, former direc- tor of the government energy policy staff, said the Nixon ad- ninlstration "has imposed quo- as on the imports of oil from Canada which are contrary to the interests of the American onsumer and contrary to the ong-term security of oil supply or the U.S." Advocating a pipeline through Canada to tap oil la Alaska and the Canadian North, freeman raid: "To my knowledge there has not been the kind of collabora- tion between the United States and Canada at the highest lev els of government which the im portance of mis decision dic- tates." Freeman, who recently let government to iota the staff of the University of Pennsylvania said if the two countries "go our separate ways in marketing the petroleum resources in Alaska and the Canadian North, the best interests of both nations will suffer in the process." The hearings were called by Senator William P r o x m i r (Dem. chairman of the joint House-Senate economic committee and long a critic o the import policy established i 1999 by President Eisenhowe on the theory a strong domestic industry protected from cheape wag essential to na- tional security.

Officials declined comment today on the case of Jonathan Richard Wearn, who claims to be a Czech-born doctor, Janek Seebag-Montifiore. They said with the appeal hearing pend- ing, comment might amount to contempt of court. The board is expected to hear his appeal late this month early in February In Montreal, a spokesman said today. A hearing scheduled for Wednes- day in Ottawa was postponed. The government is treating bun as name on his passport, his deportation order and his appeal board regards him as a British sub- ject. Wean said in an Interview Friday at Quebec City, where he has been held at the immi- gration detention centre for lour months, that a friend in the British embassy in Lebanon provided him with the false passport. RAISED IN RUSSIA He said his name is Seebag- Montifiore, that he was bom in Prague in 1036, and that his family moved ID Tashkent the following year. He was raised in a special there as an he said, and was sent to the U.S. in 1961 to infiltrate the American intelligence network.

Offers the perfect alibi LONDON (Heuter) John Buckingham, accused of tak- ing part in a robbery, produced the perfect alibi in court he was on another "job." Pleading not guilty to the charge, Buckingham's lawyer asked that his client's role in the theft of worth of electrical equipment in en- other area of London on the same day be taken into con- sideration. The prosecution accepted the plea and Buckingham was sentenced to one year's jail to be added to a seven-year sen- tence lie is already serving for a jewelry theft. OCEAN SHORES, Wash.

Maocke, Univer- sity of Michigan law professor and former member of the com- mittee staff, testified that "whenever oil imports are re- stricted, the demand for domes- tic crude oil is raised and this higher demand can be satisfied only at a higher price." By JOSEPHINE RIFLEY ChrleUu Scieaee Mcattar WASHINGTON Commut- ers in city after dty are leav- Ing melr can hi the garage and pedalling to work. Bicycle Hies, confirming the popularity of this means of transportation, totalled aeven and a half million in only half a million short of or tales for that year. One of the largest bite manufacturer: has described the increase in sales of the type most commonly used by adults the light weight, ten- speed model as "phenom- enal." The Bicycle Institute of Am- erica which issues a regular newsletter for cyclists recent- ly found it necessary to put out a special supplement devoted to "bite commuter's newt." Over the country, bike routes are being designated in-many cities to guide cyclists on their way to work. Bicycle commuters have dif- ferent reasons for switching to this form of transportation. Economy is one. It cuts the family gasoline bill. Garage parting for a bicycle is only ts a month compared to or ?M for g car. And parting Is sometimes free in buildings wl-ere there is available space. Many who take to the wheel feel strongly about air pollu- tion, of wllou they inhale plenty over the handle-ban, but which they feel they're helping to cut down by leaving the car at home. Abo, for those with i desk Job, the daily exercise is wel- come and, they feel, beneficial. The average motorist looks with little enthusiasm on this new development. He sees the bicyclist as an intruder who has no business In city traffic. Bicycle bit back, ac- cuse irate motorists of forcing them over into the curb. Also, they point out, tiie modern bi- cycle is no slow poke. It can up to tt and M mOes an hour on a level itrwt, and atop quickly. One outspoken official of the American Automobile Amocia Uan expressed the view is! many car driven when he in response to a tele- phone query: NO ROOM? "I contider the bicycle Im- practical and very unsafe ai t commuter vehicle. Many cy- clists do not obey traffic regu- lations. I think they should be banned from the highway in terms of a commuting vehicle. Then it no room for bicycles and cars on the same road- way." Bicycles are already banned from high speed highways. The A.A.A., in official policy statements, takes a more mod- erate position. It supports the Increase in biking, but feels the real solution to the com- muting problem lies in estab- lishment of separate bike paths or lanes. The bike to work movement has federal support however. Secretary of U.S. Transporta- tion John A. Voipe and Secre- tary of the Interior, Rogers C. B. Morton, have joined to promote cycling as a means or transportation as well as rec- reation. Secretary Volpe wants to tee the District of Columbia be- come a "model dty for bi- cycles" which he feds "have equal rights with automobiles on our dty streets." With this green light, the D.C. council has adopted what is probably the most liberal bicycle code in the nation. It permits the rider to move from one line of traffic to another, ruling out the general restriction of bikes to the right lane only. But the cyclist Is cautioned to do this in a way which will not unduly or un- necessarily obstruct traffic. BAN REMOVED The ban on sidewalk cycling has been removed.

Environment Minister Robert Poujade will allow exception only for emergency or icalnte- nance services in Alpine re- sorts. The ban has come because of the noise the machines make. They have already been out- lawed on local initiative by at least five ski resorts. The terrain of the French Alps does not favor the ma- chines, at their best on broad plains and only 500 or GOO are reported to have been sold In France.
