Weather WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford vowed Tues- day to veto any mandatory gasoline-rationing plan voted by the United States Congress and rejected Democratic demands that he delay impos- ing tariffs on imported oil. "I will not sit by and watch the nation continue to talk about an energy crisis and do nothing about Ford said in a broadcast news conference, his first in six weeks. He urged prompt congres- sional action on the package of economic and energy proposals he outlined last week. "By the late summer we ought to see a turnaround both as to economic activity and I hope in the unem- ployment Ford said.

Reading an opening state- ment, Ford said he will sign a presidential proclamation this week to impose the tariffs on crude 'oil at on Feb. 1, going to 52 a barrel March 1 and to a barrel April 1. "It is the first step toward regaining our energy Ford said of the proclamation. With the disclosure of his planned action, Ford rejected Democratic demands that he delay the tariff plan until Con- Whelan waiting for proof OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said Tuesday he is waiting to see proof that "the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA) had manag- ed to clear up a 40-million-egg surplus in less than a week. "We had 40 million eggs dis- appear with one news confer- he said. He was referring to the pro- ducer-run egg agency's an- nouncement at a news confer- ence last Saturday, after a two-day emergency meeting, that the surplus had virtually been eliminated. "While they may have been in storage last said CEMA director Harold Cross- man of Stoughton, Sask., "it's our assumption they're gone." gress can act. Chairman Al Ullman of the House of Representatives ways and means committee joined Democratic Senators Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts and Henry Jackson of Washington state in pressing for the delay. Ford announced the tariff plan last week, and said it would be rescinded if Congress follows his proposal that a permanent levy be placed on both domestic and foreign crude oil. These fees, combined with other energy proposals, would increase retail gasoline prices by about 10 cents a gallon. Ullman said Ford has agreed to a congressional plan for splitting the permanent levy and a quick anti- recession tax cut into two separate legislative packages. In defending his energy pro- posals against Democratic criticism, Ford said the revenues raised by the levies on fuel will be channelled back into the economy. He said this approach is far preferable to gasoline rationing, which he denounced as inequitable, unfair and a superficial answer to the energy crunch. When asked whether he would veto a rationing plan, Ford replied: "If Congress wants to require mandatory gas rationing, that's a judg- ment they can make, as bad as I think it would be. And a program of that kind, that was a superficial answer in my judgment, I w6uld veto."

Commissioner R. ,F. Montgomery made the suggestion following an inci- dent involving a man who broke into the Hudson Bay Company downtown store, stole a rifle and ammunition, and opened fire on buildings and cars in the downtown core. Deputy Police Chief Howard Leary said police would check stores which sell firearms to see what precautions are taken to pre- vent break-ins and thefts. He suggested gun store owners should remove bolts and firing mechanisms from rifles and shotguns at night, and lock them in a safe. Without the mechanisms, the gun would not be able to be fired. Commission chairman Jack Prothroe said ,if the survey Flu spreads VANCOUVER (CP) An outbreak of influenza in the Kootenay and Nelson areas of British Columbia is beginning to subside, but a flu-like il- lness is reaching epidemic' proportions in Kamloops, medical health officers report. The number of flu cases in Vancouver appears to be increasing daily, but local medical health officers said they do not yet consider the situation serious. shows few measures are being taken to protect firearms, such precautions could become a requirement for the renewal of the gun store's business licence. There have been six shooting incidents involving large scale police operations in Calgary since Dec. 20. Thes'e involved convicted criminals, two involved per- sons with mental illness, and one involved an eight year old boy who accidentally fired his father's rifle at a nearby house.
