October. 7V HOPfe (AffiO STAR Page rive etiritiiin Britain IXDNDON (AP) ->• Joe Coral, ihte'bookie, is using newspaper ads lo drum up betting action on r Thursday's general elections j "That'6 how bored the Stilish" Sfe over the elections deemed oy the three major parties as Britain's most inv portant since the dark days of World War II, . The columnists, editorial writers and commentators on the telly are calling it the dullest election since, the yawn of the modern parliamentary system, and a Gallup poll just out reports the lowest voter interest in a quarter of a century. The issues 'are 'compelling enough: rising prices, militant trade unions, the Common Market, high mortgage rates, unemployment, nationalization of industries. The fault seems to lie with the timing — only seven months since the last elections — and with the candidates, who have met too often in the past decade on the field of ennui. TV interviewer David Frost, who used to commute across the Atlantic in search of meaningful Chit-chat, recently was host to the three major candidates on successive talk shows. Labor Prime Minister Harold' Wilson; his predecessor at No. 10 Downing St., Conservative Edward Heath, and Liberal Jeremy Thorpe were gossipy, lively and urbane, each according to his public mold. In sum it made exciting, informative political talk. Did it interest the electorate? Frost garnered better audience ratings and more headlines a week earlier when Martha Mitchell held forth on Watergate and politics in America. But the tedium at the top of the political tree has not precluded more lively laborers elsewhere in the parliamentary vineyard. During the weekend Una Kroll, family doctor, drop-out Anglican nun and mother of four, led a march through the London suburbs of Sutton and Cheam as the only women's rights candidate in the field. Slow down at sundown. Conservation efforts have loit some By JEFFREY D. ALDERMAN Associated Press Writer American fuel conservation efforts have lost some of their steam, and experts in aftd out of government are calling for new ways to save energy and slow the Inflationary B6w 6f dollars to oil countries. An Associated Press survey completed on the eve of President Ford's economic jxrticy speech shows that Americans are still traveling less, driving their cars more slowly and turning out lights. The survey showed these efforts have slackened since the end of the embargo. They continue to provide considerable energy savings — more than a million barrels of oil a day. That's good, but not enough, many experts are saying. With American crude production slowly declining and imports of expensive foreign crude slowly climbing, more conservation is needed to halt the dollar How.

First Lady improving WASHINGTON (AP) - First Lady Betty Ford is continuing an excellent recovery from breast cancer surgery and probably will leave the hospital late this week, her doctors say.

BOSTON (AP) — From opposite sides of the controversy, two calls have been issued here for federal help in overseeing busing to achieve court-ordered school integration. One cay was issued Sunday by the Massachusetts Baptists Ministers Association, whose flock includes many of Boston's blacks. The other was from Louise Day Hicks, a Boston city councilor long regarded as a leader of anti-busing whites. Meanwhile antipbusing demonstrations continued. About 150 protesters, mostly from the Hyde Park section, gathered in front of Humberto Cardinal Medeiros' home Sunday to^protest the Roman Catholic clergyman's pro-busing stand. After three full weeks of school under a federal court busing order, attendance has peaked at little more than 80 per cent. However, the South Boston-Roxbury high school district, at the center of anti-busing protest, fell well below that ' The Rev. Rafe Taylor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, speaking for the Baptist ministers' association, told churchgoers after Sunday services Gas has saving ways Take a Gas Range, for example. How Gas Saves \bu. only Gas burners are instantly on and instantly off. The flame is adjustable to the size and shape of every pan. There's no need for wasted heat. Over twice as much energy is saved using Gas for cooking. Modern features like self- cleaning ovens save "elbow" energy. And Gas is the most economical. How \ou Save Gas: Adjust the flame to the pan. Don't use any more flame than you need. Gas should burn with a steady blue flame. A yellow flame could mean the burner is clogged. Just lift it out and clean thoroughly. If that doesn't make your flame burn blue again, call Arkla. Call us, anyway for more GAS saving ways. Call the Arkla Gas office nearest you, today. ARKLA —i Where Saving Energy Comes Natural. that President Ford and both of Massachusetts' U.S. senators should act to "call in federal troops." "We have reason to believe our childrens' lives are in danger. The enemy can stone the buses that our children ride at will. Thus we feel that our children are not being adequately protected," he said. "The only answer is to bring in federal troops and let them take over this whole desegregation issue." Mrs. Hicks, meanwhile, called for a meeting with Mayor Kevin H. White to request federal intervention. "We need the FBI or some federal police agency to come here and bring order out of this mess," she said. At the demonstration before the cardinal's house, some protesters said they were angry because the cardinal had refused to allow public school children to transfer to parochial schools that have openings. A spokesman said the cardinal was not at home.
