Simon said be would not hestitate to recommend gasoline rationing if spot shortages became widespread, but that he didn't think rationing was necessary. He withheld judgment until the Task Force Sent Upstate To Help Divide Gasoline A special task force has been sent to Hammond to assist in accepting applications for special hardship allocations of gasoline. William J. Watt, acting energy adviser for Governor Otis R. Bowen, said the team will be stationed in a Holiday Inn at Hammond from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. today and tomorrow. NEEDS WILL BE established on a case-by-case basis and those serving priority users (such as police, fire and other city services) will get the first ; chance at an extra shipment of gasoline. The state is due to receive an additional 3.3 million gallons of gasoline because of an emergency one-time special Federal allocation. Watt said most would go to Lake and Torter counties to relieve panic buying and shortages due to gasoline-starved ".

The action followed an order from the Federal Energy Ofice last week : for propane suppliers to reduce prices . "promptly and sharply." Amoco, also known as Standard Oil of Indiana, reduced its wholesale prices 4 cents a gallon. Phillips announced a wholesale price cut of AVz cents a gallon, and Sunoco cut wholesale propane ' prices 7 cents a gallon. The same price ' cuts are expected to be reflected in retail prices. Propane is widely used as a home-heating fuel in the South and Midwest. It also is used in petrochemical production and crop-drying. "Together with the IVi cents-a-gal-lon reduction announced earlier this month, price reductions for February totaled 26 per cent," said G. J. Morrison, marketing, vice - president for Phillips. - ; fi :- '11 i , pr ilASJ This one is American. Great Western Veritas was made to be great. An original, dazzling Pink American wine.

THE D E A L E R S are disatisfied with the Federal Energy Office's approval last week of a cent-a-gallon price increase, saying it was not enough to cover their losses. Although dealers have been allocated 100 per cent of the gasoline they received in the same month in 1972, many actually are receiving 85 per cent "or less, particularly on the hard-hit East Coast. Simon said Tuesday's increased allocations of 2 per cent to 5 per cent in the 'JO states should shorten waiting lines at gasoline stations in a few days. But, he said, "If it grew, I would not hesitate to recommend to the President that we implement gasoline rationing. "If it became widespread, rather than spot shortages that are occurring in the country, that certainly would be the major factor," he said. SAWHILL SAID Tuesday a rationing decision would be delayed until mid-April to give revised allocations a chance to work. ; The House Rules Committee meanwhile voted to permit separate votes on key portions of the emergency en- Marryirt Marc, Continued From Page 1 his schooling there.

He has not seen her in the last three weeks. Initially he plans to work out of his parents' home but township officials are trying to obtain office space elsewhere. Griffin anticipates he will have received all the necessary papers and supplies by Monday. He also figures the work load will pick up as word gets out that a justice of the peace in the township is available after and before normal working hours and when the new 55-mile-an-hour speed limit takes effect March 1. BUT GRIFFIN stresses the court will be more than just a traffic court. The small claims court has the power to handle civil cases, such as cases involving bad checks or bad debts. It also will be able to issue warrants, he added. Based on the population of the township, the maximum amount Griffin could be paid from the $6 docket fee for each case in his court would be Ttn 0,1 Tui'Mlay In a rcsoii-v!.:; (u '.'1 r.'.:'!iv iv.etrduT said: " One eem-s ki!S -the bill." The committee action means that when the House considers the bill today it will vote separately on provisions in the Senate bill for rationing authority, regulation of station business hours and the controversial rollback on crude oil prices to a ceiling of $7.09 a barrel. THE t'NIDENTIFIED Rules Committee member who predicted the bill would be killed on the House floor indicated he thought the House would strike all three provisions before voting on final passage. President Nixon has threatened to veto any emergency bill containing a price rollback on the ground it would discourage exploration for new oil sources. Representative Al Ullman (D-Orc.), acting chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said that if a price rollback became law, his panel would have to consider giving the oil industry new tax incentives to encourage further investment. In Venezuela, the largest source of U.S. oil imports, the ruling Social Christian Party said legislation would be sent to congress early in March for nationalization and indemnity payments for an estimated $1.2 billion in foreign oil company investments. The New J.P. $4,500, he said. The township will receive $2 of each fee plus any fines assessed by him. He will keep the balance of the fee, he explained. He made his decision to request the job because "I've always been interested in the law. I've wanted to be an attorney since I was in junior high school. This is a prime opportunity for me to get closer to the law as a layman before going to law school." "In the next 20 months I plan to learn more about the law and courtroom practice than I could ever learn sitting behind a desk listening to a professor." Griffin's term expires Dec. 31, 1974. But he plans to file as a candidate for the office in the May primary election. Presently, the office of justice of the peace will be abolished on Jan. 1, 1976, unless the Indiana General Assembly acts otherwise. During regular working hours, Griffin will work as a business service representative. He hopes to attend Indiana-Purdue Univefsity, Indianapolis. Griffin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald L. Griffin, said he has aspirations to become a member of the Indiana General Assembly. lT' lll !'H ('!'.. ti Portugal's premium quality ross. Yet Veritas doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
