And it usually covers the ground from October until April. The threatened change in the rules of winter has prompted people to band together to prepare for fuel shoTtaees. llie League of Women Voters, the Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Salvation Army and a squad of young volunteers bave launched a program to insulate the homes of the poor and the elderly. Senior citizens have agreed ribou. to take in other elderly people wbo mitfit be unable ta get beating oil. The office of civil defence has instructed every c<Hnmu-Aity to prepare an emergency shelter lai^e enou^ to bouse four families if they run out of heat. Governor Kenneth Curtis warned that people might have to be noused in auditwiums and armories for short periods of time. Firewood sales, in a land of forests, are at an all-time high. A cord of wood brings an exorbitant 1100. A floundering Portland foundiy suddenly has more orders for irm stoves tban it can handle. And police report an unusual number of Franklin stove bur-^ries at lakeside cottages. Maine is at the northeastern tip of tbe Eastern Seaboard. It is at the end of the interstate highway system, the last stop on the American oil delivery route. And it has no petroleum of its own. Four of every five homes depend on truck-delivered lieadng oil. Maine is a rural state. For most of its pe<q)le, the family car is tbe only means of transportation. And for farm families, out of sight of their neighbors and miles from the nearest store, gasoline is as inuwrtant at heating oil. So far, gasoline is the oniv consumer fuel Maine resl- be able duct ion." to increase pro- dents have had trouble buying There has been.enough heating oil for every user, state officials say. Some motorists take advantage of Maine’s ckweness to Canada and cross the border occasionally to fill up on gasoline. School bus routes have been shortened to save fuel. Tbe ski resorts have begun sponsoring bus service from Boston and otber New England cities to lure people who don’t want to drive. Thrwigh voluntary efforts, use of heating oil has been reduced by 15 per cent, and electricity consumption is down nine per cent from last year. Few Christmas lights were displayed. AUmg the New Brunswick border, potato farmers are wtmdering bow much nsoline they’ll get for ^ring planting. Dan Turner ‘ ' ' Easton, sa; lem now i________ trucked to market. “But we won’t be getting into the ground until spring and there are still uncertainties over what gas supplies wiU be then.

But who knows how much there’s going to he this spring?” Not involved WASHINGTON (AP> -Vice-President Gerald Ford said today President Nixon has told him he was not involved in the erasure of an 18.5-minute segment of a subpoenaed White House tape relating to the Watergate political espiuiage scandal. Ford said that on the basis of what Nixon told him "the president was not involved” in the erasure of the segment of a conversation between Nixon and former top aide H. R. Haldeman. U.S. District Judge John Sirica has asked a grand jury to investigate circumstances surrounding thp erasure to determine whether it was deliberate.
