Other users of oil in- cluding commercial and government would be forced to lower temperatures 10 degrees or make equivalent fuel savings. The plans are contained in the administration's proposal for rationing of heating to be published today in the Fed- eral Register. A draft of the proposed regulations was obtained by The Associated Press and verified by administration sources. The regulations also would guarantee certain high- priority users anywhere from 90 per cent of last year's fuel oil supply to 100 per cent of their needs this year. Barring unforeseen com- the regulations will take effect Jan. 1. Under the dealers would be legally required to impose the reductions on the heating oil delivered to their customers. Purchasers would not need coupons to receive their The dealers would be re- quired to calculate and dis- tribute the correct amounts according to the formula set by the regulations.

Since it overthrew the leader of the 1967 military coup the junta has not mentioned his name in its communiques. Papadopoulos was put under house arrest at the seaside villa 20 miles from Athens. Troops with armored per- sonnel carriers are guarding the villa. Nor has there been any news of his wife who left for the United States 10 days before the coup. If she has the junta has not disclosed it. By Papadopoulos's picture was removed from all public buildings in the capital and elsewhere in the country. The former strongman is far from a in Athens' censored newspapers. The day after his fall they called him a hungry and the object of a personality cult. Papadopoulos was an un- known colonel in army in- telligence when he led the coup that ended parliamen- tary government. The aim of the coup was to block an elec- tion in which the late leftist leader George Papandreou and his son Andreas were cer- tain to be returned to power.
