Conilei Family Weekly Tabloi Frt Pmi Htrrln Duly Journ1 SUNDAY JANUARY 271974 if if if Togetherness is the word as motorists pool cars during the day though so respond favorably to sharing Onebasic By Joanne Wood Of The Southern Ulinoisan One man says it is group therapy on wheels and ot hers claim it saves marriages and dollars It all adds up to the grow ing institution of the car pool There is little doubt that sharing rides is one answer to the energy crunch And there is growing interest to ride sharing on the part of companies and institutions that employ large numbers of workers Lawrence E Eichler vice president of Norge Laundry Co formerly The Norge Divi sion of Fedders Corp Herrin said Were asking people to form car pools and are de finitely in favor of employes sharing rides At Southern Illinois Univer sity at Carbondale Tom Roy data process analyst for the personnel department has worked out a listing of all employes hometowns Percy Adlai at odds on fuel By Gerlad Conner LmdsaySchaub News Service Illinois two Senators ap parently are nearing log gerheads over the issue of the oil companies role in the fuel shortage The one thats running for reelection said the American people are being ripped off The other one who is seeking the nomination for President said he is not yet willing to call for their heads Sen Adlai Stevenson D who Is seeking reelection to a Rill sixyear term said during a speech before the Consumer Federation of America in Washington Friday that to of fer people no better hope than high prices and more high prices while the major oil com panies grew fat offends our sense of justice Earlier Friday morning Sen Charles Percy R who has a citizens committee exploring his chances for the Republican nomination fof President in 1976 said he had thus far seen or heard nothing to substantiate the serious allegations being made against the oil com panies Percys comments came dur ing a hearing before a permanent Senate investigating committee looking into the energy crisis Energy Czar William Simon was the ness j During a telephone interview Friday Percy said that he is disturbed about the allegations that have not been substantiated during the hearings about the oil companies Granted the reports of skyrocketing profits should concern us all he said But to call these unwarranted windfalls before we even know what would constitute a windfall Is unjustified Percy is the ranking minority member on the committee Its chairman Sen Henry Jackson DWash and Sen Abraham Rubicoff DConn also a com mittee member had blasted the executives of the oil companies with allegations of contriving the oil shortage and exploiting the American people He said he was distressed to learn during the hearings that some oil companies were paying less than 10 per cent corporate tax to the federal treasury He said he would support legislation to bring oil com panies taxes into line with the typical 50 per cent tax rate paid by other corporations Stevenson apparentlv is far more upset with what he learned from the hearings or elsewhere He said on Friday that he would soon introduce legislation to mandate a rollback to fuel prices and to create a federal fuel corporation thtf would compete with the private cor pcrations During his Friday speech he said the energy crisis has the American people frustrated and outraged I dont want to see a totally regulated industry but action is needed now or we may soon see public support for free enterprise in the fuel industry abandoned Related stories 4 Weve hoped that people living to other towns might be considering car pools in order to keep their gasoline costs down Roy said So far however no one has shown any interest in the list In case anyone does the telephone number is 4535334 extension 33 he added Enthusiasm for car pooling however runs high among people who have been shar ing rides for some time Joe Yusko and Vernon Ea ton both of SIUCs person nel department and Dave Grove who works in the Com munications Building on cam pus all live in the Marion area and have been sharing their cars on a weekly basis for the past seven years The pool will be a fourman effort Monday when John Christ also of Marion joins the group Eaton figures that t h e drive between Marion and Carbondale adds up to 200 miles a week Thats a sav ing of approximately 10 gal lons of gasoline a week for most of us But the savings is not lim ited to gas alone he said Car maintenance is less when its not used everyday SIUC encourages employe car pools by selling one park ing sticker to the group and then giving a tag to be hung on the rearview mirror of the carbeing used that day Yusko a personnel officer at SIUC says that pooling cars makes life much better We have the same inter ests and mutual understand ing of each others problems he said So its easy to talk out the frustrations to get rid of the junk of each day so that I can arrive home relaxed Riding with others often starts with necessity Dorothy Dykma of Car bondale is blind When she was offered a job at Anna State Hospital as a counselor she asked her supervisor for the name of a person who might be willing to give her a ride Im an expert on car pools by now she said I started with one person we added some more some have drop ped out because of job chan ges and now there is a com pletely different group than I started with It is important when peo ple decide to ride together that some ground rules are establishedespeciaUy for the time beyond which the driver will not wait for a rider These rules can make it eas ier and keep potential grud ges from being created Miss Dykma also pointed that it is good to ride with people who have mutual in terests But some people dont like to talk much in the morning so I try to go easy Sometimes the twoway ride is the only time we have to talk with fellow workers during the day though its good for all of us Since Miss Dykma does not drive she shares the cost of gasoline with her driver But there is hesitationon the part of nondriving pool riders to disclose drivers names be cause of insurance problesm A telephone interview with Jim Huber deputy director fo the consumer market branch of the Illinois Dept of Insurance in Springfield disclosed some interest on the part of state government on that score since insurance firms can charge higher rates for hired vehicles We have sent a directive to all automobile insurance companies in Illinois request ing that they agree not to interpret ride sharing or car pooling ais using a car for public or livery conveyance he said As long as the driver is not seeking a profit then the insurance company should respond favorably to sharing rides Jane Bottje of rural Dongola also works at Anna State Hos pital and shares rides with two other women It seems stupid to be driv ing the same road everyday at the same time and not to pool our cars she said It also helps since my hus band and I have only one car What are some of the draw backs Mrs Bottje pointed out that she did not always make it to the meeting place on time But thats my hassle she said Sharon Kineman of Reeds ville 13 miles east of Vienna also shares rides with others who work at the hospital One disadvantage is that we dont always have our own car during the day she said but the advantages outweigh that small problem Loot recovered FBI agents count up stacks of bills recovered as part of the more than 5500000 taken from the Maryland National Bank branch at the Baltimore and bills wai displayed Washington

the controversial hearings on contributions to the 1972 Nixon campaign that were to have been held during the next two weeks Chairman Sam J Ervin Jr DNC said to a brief state ment that the delay had been agreed upon by the committee in order to make sure that no prejudice be done to the Mitchell and Stans trial scheduled to begin next month in the United StatesDistrict Court in New York City Ervin was referring to the trial for obstruction of justice and perjury of former Attorney General John N Mitchell and former Secretary of Commerce Maurice H Stans which is now scheduled after several postponements to open on dropped 19 Since the life of the committee is scheduled to expire on Feb 28 the move raised serious questions on whether the hear ings on presidential campaign contributions made by billionaire Howard R Hughes and the milk industry would ever take place at all The hearings this week were to have focused on allegations that Mitchell had permitted Hughes to buy a Las Vegas hotel and casino over objections by government antitrust attorneys in return for a cash contribution to Charles G Rebozo a close Nixon associate j Mitchell would also have been implicated to the Watergate committees milk hearings Among the charges involved was one that the former at criminal proceedings against milk producers and brought a civil antitrust action instead after the industry gave a large contribution to the Nixon presidential campaign Friday the US Attorney for the Southern District Paul Curran of New York called Ervin to inform him that the trial of the two former Nixon cabinet officers would open to about three weeks and that it might be prejudiced by televised One basic necessity pool riders is mat the same working hours and days Richard Hutner coordinator of after

to places not near another employe there are problems that probably can not be worked out at all It is at that point that most conversations get to the public transportation system that many wish
