The current glut of natural gas on the market is unlikely to disappear in the near future, according to Hal Hudson, KPL spokesman. Residential and industrial consumers have cut back their consumption in recent times as part of the nation's conservation effort. In addition, most power plants — which at one time were among the single largest consumers of natural gas — have converted to other energy sources such as coal and would not be interested in switching back to gas, Hudson said. The absence of demand for Hugoton gas is evident by the "allow- ables" set by the KCC. Every six months, the KCC takes estimates from Hugoton producers of how much gas they expect to draw from the field. The KCC then sets "allowables" for each company, attempting to balance the production among all producers with rights to the field. Under that system, only 235 million MCF (thousand cubic feet) was produced from the field in 1983, down sharply from the early 1970s when production was more than 600 million MCF, according to KCC figures. KPL would like to use more Hugoton gas and less of the more expensive gas from other sources, but the KCC won't allow it. If Mesa Petroleum — KPL's supplier — were allowed to produce more of the Hugoton gas and sell it to KPL, it would be taking more than its share of the "allowables," Haden said. That would interfere with the rights of other producers, who, although they aren't mining the gas, still have a right to the untapped resource, he said. The effect of the infill program on the consumer's pocketbook is also a point of debate. KPL says its customers would face a 13 percent price increase if infill-drilling is approved. Cities Service contends there would be minimal effect on consumers, noting that KPL's current contract with Mesa expires at the end of this decade, and the price of gas will then increase anyway to much higher levels. KPL buys some of its Hugoton gas for as little as 28 cents per MCF. But an appraisal report conducted for Mesa Petroleum projects that the price will rise to more than $5 per MCF by 1990 when contracts expire. Hudson disputes the $5 projection, although conceding that the price of gas from old Hugoton wells likely will rise by the end of the decade. Gas produced and sold within the state of Kansas is not regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and producers generally can seek as a high a price as they desire. However, Hudson predicted KPL likely would go to court with its producer if Mesa demanded the $5-per- MCF rate. Cities Service also cites other benefits of infill-drilling. If all the Hugoton producers sank an additional well, a tremendous boost to the state's economy would result, particularly in southwest Kansas, Corrections Because of a Journal error, Mary Maley was misidentified Thursday as vice chairman of Salina's Heritage Commission. She is a member and former chairman of the commission. Esther Errebo is the commission's current vice chairman. •fr 4r £ Information provided The Journal was incomplete on one of the Salina Central High School homecoming queen candidates. Laurie Brown is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Brown. the company says. "The Hugoton infill project offers a unique opportunity to the state of Kansas and its residents to substantially increase its reserve base and receive a strong boost in its economy," according to David A. Hentschel, Cities Service chairman. Almost one-third of the additional revenue from the infill project would be returned to state and local government and Kansas residents through the state's severance tax, income tax and royalty payments, according to a Cities Service position paper. The company also cites other studies that project a $14 billion infusion into the state's economy under an infill drilling program. KPL questions that view, saying the economic boom would be limited only to southwest Kansas, while nearly all of the state would feel the effect of higher utility rates. The issue gets a mixed review from the Southwest Kansas Irrigators Association, whose members rely on natural gas to fuel their irrigation pumps. Eugene Shore, state legislator from Johnson and vice-chairman of the irrigators' energy committee, warns that higher gas prices could force some farmers out of business. "We haven't made a decision (on endorsing or opposing infill-drilling)," Shore said. "It all hinges on what kind of exemptions irrigators get." Although gas from the old Hugoton wells may seem relatively cheap at 60 to 80 cents an MCF, that price is still five times higher than it was just a few years ago, Shore said. Those price increases since the advent of federal deregulation of gas prices have added as much as $1 a bushel to the cost of production of irrigated corn, Shore said, and any additional increases could bring an end to irrigation. Irrigators at times must pay as much as $3.80 for natural gas, Shore said, a level that is financial disaster. "At $3.80, I just take the motors off and take them into the house" Shore said. While higher natural gas prices are a definite drawback to infill- drilling, the benefits of drilling as many as 4,000 additional wells must also be weighed, Shore said. "A lot of us are royalty owners, too," he said. "On the surface, it looks good; our state needs a shot in the arm." Although the current application is limited only to Cities Service, a KCC decision in favor of infill-drilling likely would set the standard for other producers as well, Haden said.

Block (Continued from Page 1) debt. "All they did was give these farmers a longer rope to hang themselves with," said Adolph Vopat, a Wilson farmer. Several farmers, many of them wearing American Agriculture Movement hats, wore black armbands to Abilene. "It's a protest against interest rates and the low-interest loans our government gives to other countries — countries that compete against our farmers," said Jim Nelson of Jewell. Following Block's speech, Darrell Ringer, a Democratic candidate for Congress from Kansas' 1st District, criticized Block and the administration's new loan plan. "Another loan to a debt-ridden farmer is about as much help as (giving) more water to a drowning man. We need a price, not a pacifier," said Ringer, a Quinter farmer who earlier this year filed for bankruptcy. Not everyone, however, was critical of Block's speech. Flippo said the secretary's talk had offered him a bit of hope. "Maybe (the Reagan Administration) doesn't understand the farm problem as good as we'd like, but they're better than we had in the past — and that's worth a lot," said Flippo, who five years ago participated in an American Agriculture Movement tractorcade to Washington. Later, Block traveled to Manhattan, where he appeared at Kansas State University's Ag Media Days. He said the farm economy still had not followed, the rest of the nation in an economic recovery, but he was optimistic conditions would eventually improve in rural America. "We're going through a wrenching change today," he said. "It's in the process and everybody knows it. We're trying to minimize the severity of the impact on the farming community.... "There are problems, but we're trying to minimize them and bring agriculture through with as little pain as possible. "We (still) need to bring interest rates down and expand our markets ... President Reagan had made a good start, but President Reagan can't finish the job alone." Block cited polls that showed Reagan with a comfortable lead over Democratic challenger Walter Mondale with voters in rural America. "I'm careful not to get too excited," Block said, "but it looks good." i/Abuse (Continued from Page 1) said. More than half the allegations received by the GAO were referred to four agencies — the Social Security Administration, the Defense Department, the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Health and Human Services. One snitch, however, had the GAO looking under its own. rug. This caller reported correctly that workers in an unidentified GAO unit were performing administrative duties for a private concern during work hours. The GAO refers complaints to the inspector general of the affected agency. Some agencies, including HHS and the Pentagon, also have their own waste, fraud and abuse hot lines. The inspector general of HHS didn't have to go very far to verify one complaint reaching his office from the GAO. It was against an unidentified subordinate who took long lunches and breakfasts and planned business trips "for personal convenience." Some of the hot line cases go far beyond a mere loss of taxpayer time and money. "An informant complained that a VA mental hospital was mistreating patients by forcing them to stand out of doors during inclement weather, cleaning bathrooms only once a week and in an economy effort serving leftovers instead of fresh food specified on menus," the report said. Sen. James Sasser, D-Tenn., who conceived the hot line, said proudly that the device had proven to be a "valuable tool" and "has been more successful than anyone thought when it was launched." In a statement, he invited whis- tleblowers to call the GAO at 1-800424-5454. In Washington, D.C., the number is 633-6987.
