Disbarment expected for Agnew WASHINGTON Action toward the disbarment of former vice president Spiro Agnew has been started by Maryland Bar Associations. Sources said moves were taken by the Maryland State Bar Association and the Montgomery County Bar Association with the aim of legally stripping Agnew of his right to practise law in Maryland or anywhere else in the United States. Reports in Washington and Baltimore newspapers said the legal action would be taken in Montgomery County Circuit Court. Agnew lives in Montgomery just out- side Washington.

Grim prospects face motorists WASHINGTON The United States faces the grim prospect of gasoline rationing for up to two years because of the growing energy crisis and the more recent Arab oil embargo. A warning that gas ration- ing last used in the Second World War may start in and possibly even came Sunday night from Interior Secretary Rogers Morton. He said that rationing might last from one to two years. The U.S. devours about 17 million barrels of oil a day. The looming energy crisis may hit the economy. Some analysts have predicted less growth in out- more inflation and higher unemployment resulting from factory production cuts caus- ed by shortages of oil and oil- price increases. Part of the blame for the fuel shortage can be placed on the Arab oil embargo in retaliation for Washington's pro-Israeli policy. But a fuel crunch has been developing in the United States for some time because of sharply rising demands for energy and conservation measures curtailing the use of fuel. Morton said no exact plans have been drawn up for gas rationing but he stressed special arrangements would be made for those whose liv- ing depends on driving. More fuel for heating homes would be found by curbing the use of he said. who made his rationing forecast Sunday in a television also spoke about possibilities of higher taxes on gas and on bigger cars which bum more fuel. He emphasized tharso far none of these measures have been actively considered. The need for smaller cars was stressed by Senator Charles Percy Rep. 111. in another television program. He said the energy crisis could have been avoided in spite of the Arab embargo. He said the government has been slow to react to the energy problem but called President Nixon's appeal last for Americans to drive slower and less often and to use less fuel in their an efficient plan. Russell director of the Environmental Protection warned of shortages in the United for the next five or 10 years and said conservation measures might have to be eased because of the fuel problem.
