sav ins time caused many South em Illinois workers to drive to work in the dark this morn ing Here are some of their reactions I felt like the world was all turned around said Gladys Wright of Murphys boro after she drove to Car bondale Mrs Wright reports for work at 8 am in the bursars office at Southern Il linois University it was a weird feeling she said I grew up on a farm and got up real early to milk the cows Those days of my childhood were so vivid in my mind this morning It was very weird It seemed nil wrong all so unnecessary Workers businessmen students try to adjust to daylight saving time I cant see how its going to help We turn lights on earlier at home we turn the furnace up an hour earlier and people will stay up later Our bodies are climatized to such an extent that we wont want to go to bed at the usual hour I cant see that we are going to conserve en ergy Its Terrible LaDonne Lambert ofLam bert Real Estate says she thinks the new schedule is terrible We used lights that we never used before We had to drive with our Mghts on and the new schedule creates a problem with our school children Our son goes to Uni ty Point and we had to drop him off before the doors of the school were open and he had to wait outside Unity Point School starts now at 9 am Bob Palak of Makanda said his wife a school teacher was worried that it wasnt time to go to work this morn ing because it was so dark It was surprising to wake up and find it so dark but I think its a great idea I think it will help conserve energy Palak is self employed Walter Gatto a student at SIUC said he flunks it is nice to beat the sun up I felt a little sleepy but I think its great Gatto said Dickey Foster a foreman at Tuck Industries in Carbon dale said he felt like he was on the midnight shift as he drove to work The new time doesnt both er me I worked from 3 to II pm for eight years Im used to driving to work in the dark I cant see that it will make much difference as far as the enrgy crisis in concerned Foster said Debby Smith a service rep resentative for Genera Tele phone Co in Oarbondale says driving to work in the dark is better than driving home in the dark Classes were reported norm al today at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale but feelings about the switch to daylight saving time were mixed Lee Hester president of the civil service employes coun cil said he thinks fte switch is terrible He also said that civil serv ice employes at SIUC are forming car pools and have asked the administration to consider making work sche dules flexible to accommodate them Barbara Dallas Murphys boro a secretary in the ex ecutive vice presidents office says she likes the change Id rather spend the extra hour of daylight with my fami ly instead of here at the of fice Herrin Fire Chief Laverne Kerley said Personally I dont see anything wrong with it I kind of like it Kerley who goes to work at 8 am says h likes having the extra hour ii the after noon to do chores around his house West Frankfort City Clerk Thomas Griffin said he likes the time change Coming to work in the dark doesnt bother me The time change presents no problems to city workers Griffin said More Energy Used Daylight saving time is something we must contend with Personally I dont like it William Clarida superin tendent of Herrin School Unit District No 4said Frankly I cannot see how daylight time saves energy for the school systems It stems more energy would be used because the buses spend more time on the runs due to darkness and more energy would be con sumed by turning the build ings temperature up because of cooler temperatures in the morning But if daylight time is beneficial to the country I guess we can go along with it Some Marion residents took the change with a grain of salt some thought daylight saving time allows more ac complishment some didnt know how to feel and some hated it I really dont know right now how I feel about it Im still in a daze said Cindy Cox a waitress at the Up towner Restaurant Miss Cox said she is not too crazy about getting up so early and cant see the value in changing the time to conserve energy Benny Sanders manager of Zwicks Shoe Store likes the feel of daylight saving time I think you can accomplish more Sanders says there wiE be a definite effect on businesses but an evaluation must wait until the new time system has been in effect awhile Sanders suggests stores op en at am and close at 5 pm to go along with the effort to conserve fuel And he thinks the discount stores and shopping centers ought to go along too Hours now are 9 am to pm Nineteen buses of the Mar ion Community School District Unit Two rolled out at am in the darkness of day light savings time today to transport children to school The buses returned on sche dule at or am Everything went right on schedule says Jack Evans transportation superintendent Evans said the darkness was the only problem but as time goes on each day will get longer solving the darkness problem Evans said he has had no complaints from parents yet on the changing time but he expects to hear from them Gas station suit denied Washington AP Gasoline station operators fighting Phase 4 price controls were denied a hearing today by the Supreme Court Two station operators suing for themselves and all others in similar circumstances called the regulations applied to retail gasoline outlets arbitrary and capricious The specific point on appeal to the high court was a ruling by the temporary emergency court of appeals set up to handle price control suits The court held that the station operations must ex haust administrative remedies before going to court Criminal action will be taken against those who charge illegal prices for gasoline federal energy chief William E Simon says I Appearing on ABCs Issues Owners sought hearing to fight price controls imposed on retail outlets and Answers Sunday Simon was asked whether the Federal Energy Office will make full use of its new legislative authority to take crimnial action Oh absolutely he said It is criminal statutory and we will have fines and refer it to the Justice Department who is our prosecutorial agency here Yes indeed Simon also said his agency is looking into means of pressuring unwilling oil companies into I limiting gasoline sales to 10 gallons per customer There have been reports that Gulf Oil and Standard Oil of Ohio have not agreed to a1 Federal Energy Office request to try and get their stations in Ohio to agree to a 10gallon limit A spokesman for the Federal Energy Office said Sunday night that pressure tactics still are under discussion and specific steps have not been decided Simon said he is hopeful that rationing will not have to be putj into effect but he declined toj say he is optimistic on this matter He said an important factor in determining whether rationing will become necessary is the leakage in the Arab oil embargo through which about 700000 barrels a day currently is ob tained If the leaks continue rationing would be less likely he said However he added there is no way for us to judge whether leakage will indeed continue or not Meanwhile Egyptian Ambas sadordesignate Ashraf Ghorbal said on the CBS program Face the Nation that there wouldj have to be a clear reason for the Arab states to lift their oil em bargo He implied that this would be the return by Israel of territories conquered since 1967 We do not like the boycott he said We all wish it would stop but we would also like to have our territories back In another interview with US News World Report Simon said he expects regular grade gasoline to be selling for 55 cents a gallon by next spring He called predictions that the price would reach a gallon irresponsible Meanwhile the Netherlands is preparing to start gasoline ra tioning next Saturday with a system that will limit private motorists to fewer than 3Vi gallons a week The Netherlands is the only country other than the United States against which the Arabs have declared a total oilenu bargo Ruling sought on Watergate tapes Washington AP 1 Senate Watergate committee lawyers are returning to court to for the committee

charged that control of many of the nations largest corporations is hidden from government regulators and concentrated in the hands of a very few institutional investors especially large banks In a 419page report two government operations sub committees said they found a massive coverup of the extent to which holdings of stock have become concentrated Overall the report said Chase Manhattan Bank was the single largest stockholder in 20 com panies First National City Bank in nine Morgan Guaranty in four Bankers Trust and Chemical Bank in three each and Bank of New York Bank of America and First National Bank of Chicago in two each The report was issued Sunday by the chairmen Sens Lee Metcalf DMont and Edmund S Muskie DMaine At least 28 institutions are known to manage investment portfolios in excess of billion each the report said The list of those 28 institutions included 17 of the nations largest banks and seven of thelargest in surance companies The subcommittees informa tion was gathered from responses from 324 of the na tions largest companies that had been asked to identify their top 30 stockholders Of those 324 only 89 responded fully the report said In many cases the report said the true identities of the institutional stockholders were hidden behindnominee or street names For example Chase Manhat tan Bank frequently appears under the names of Cudd Co Kane Co and Egger Co First National City Bank also is known by the street names Gerlach Co Weber Co Thomas Co and King Co Reserve flights resumed prorequest of the prosecutors of fice has been receiving evidence on a variety of Watergate matterincluding campaign contributions the so called plumbers unit the milk fund case political espionage and the ITT antitrust settle ment That panel already has returned indictments in a number of campaign contribu tion cases and also has charged former White House aide Dwight L Chapin with lying to the original Watergate grand jury Chapin pleaded innocent and is cheduled to go on trial in March In another Watergate I development the White House and former Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox denied a published report that Cox was fired because he planned to name Nixona coconspirator in1 an indictment The story appeared in Sun days New York Times Any story that Mr Cox was dismissed for such a reason is totally false Deputy Press Secretary Gerald L Warren said in San Clemente Calif Cox said that naming the President as a coconspirator without indicting him would be a rather silly and shabby thing to Dunn charges danger from cutbacks f VI Engineer denies roads neglected Eep Balph RDu workers t ft BWrict Quoin has charged that em pi iye and equipment cuts made by Gov Daniel Walker at the Hghway District 9 office in Car bondale made Southern Illinois mads dangerous during last months 8inch snowfall But District 9 Engineer James Newton said Dunn was incorrect in some of the figures used in making the charge and added that snowclearing efforts last month were not substanti ally different from those in pre vious years 1 Dunn said 57 maintenance had been laid off by Walker between June 30 and Nov 30 last year reducing the number of workers from 240 to 183 Newton however said that only 42 workers had lost their jobs He said there were 212 maintenance Workers at the of fice last March 1 and 170 last Dec 1 In addition Newton said 14 extra hourly workers were add ed to the maintenance force dur ing the recent storm to aid in road clearing efforts Dunn also charged ihat Throughout downstate Dan Walker has taken 180 mainten ance trucks off the road in what he calls an economy move Newton said that four trucks at the District 9 office were taken out of service last fall Road clearing efforts were de layed Dunn charged because Walker has icreased the num ber of miles each snow plow is responsible for from 16 miles to 20 miles Although noting that snow routes will vary in length Newton said that Dunns state ment was essentially correct Asked if road clearing efforts during last months snowstorm differed from those in previous years Newton said No I dont think so The effort wasnt dif ferent except for hiring the hourly employes He conceded that lengthening the snow plow routes in all probability meant that the roads were not covered as fre quently as they might have been But Newton added When you have 68 inches of snow and freezing rain the roads got to be hazardous for awhile Washington AP Air National Guard and air reserve training flights grounded Dec 22 by the fuel shortage are being resumed the Pentagon said Monday Spokesman Jerry W Friedheim said resumption of flights was made possible by an increased allocation of daily military fuel consumption by the Federal Energy Office The
