Dunnum, '; and Deputy D i s l . Ally. · Allen Field was queslion- ; ing'an initial grnup of 12 ·i as's session ended. ^ Miller, acting as his 5 own attorney, surprised j the court by waiving his ] right to question that ini- j tial group. j Because the case in- i volves the death penalty, :1 and because the 33-year- i old Miller has pleaded ·'} innocent and innocent by { reason of insanity, the 1 jury will try the case in I three phases: jjuijt, sanity ' and penalty. ! Additionally, b e c a u s e · the state's revived death .' pe.nalty is involved, each ; side, may dismiss up to '26 ·; prospective jurors without i stating cause. ; ..Selection is to resume at f. 9 aim. today. 5 i M i l l e r is accused of slaying Harold and Lei a Mae Miller last Oct. 21 at 5450 Flagstone Ave. He was arrested at the scene of a Downey bank robbery one week later. At the time of the killings, Miller had been free for some three months, paroled from state prison after serving 18 years of a life sentence for a 1957 m u r d e r , a u t h o r i t i e s reported. Miller, 15 at the time, was convicted of smother- big a Rolling Hills infant The bald and bearded- defendant originally was represented in the current case by a deputy public defender. But Miller took advantage of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision- handed down in the appeal of another Long Beach case--to oust his attorney and win the right to defend himself in court. Miller also sought and won the right, under the same precedent, to have an attorney with him at the counsel table as his adviser. Attorney Jack Stanley, 'court-appointed to t h a t role, sat besido Miller quietly Wednesday as the prosecutor began questioning prospective jurors. Miller has appeared in Judge Dtmnum's court three times in the past week with pretrial motions and has futilcly sought at least one stay In the trial from (he District Court of A p p e a l s , according to court officials. From Our L.A. Burcia The four-county Southern California A i r Pollution Control District is planning to seek a b a t e - ment orders against three Los Angeles oil refineries that it claims do not comply with newly established criteria governing floating roof seals on petroleum storage tanks. J. A. Stuart, chief air pollution c o n t r o l officer for the district, said the abatement orders are being sought against 16 tanks at the Standard Oil refinery In El Scgundo, seven tanks at the Atlantic Richfield refinery in .Carson and five tanks at the Mobil Oil refinery in Tor- ranee. He said he has asked the district counsel to file a petition with the Air Pollution Hearing Board for an abatement order against the refineries and noted t h a t subsequent violations could result in fines of up to $6,000 each day. Stuart said the new criteria for roof seals were developed after an Intensive inspection of f o u r refineries by members of the district and the State A i r R e s o u r c e s B o a r d (ARB). The ARB had 'earlier charged the former Los Angeles APCD was allowing hydrocarbon losses it the Standard Oil refinery because of numerous gaps in the tanks seals. He said he also has ordered additional inspections of nil storage tanks at Los Angeles C o u n t y refineries.' He said the district also Is preparing amendments to its smog control rules that will require many petroleum storage tanks to; be retrofitted with second-- ary seals for better com. trol. He said he expects, the amendments to be set: for public hearing in early,-, May. Do your shopping the mock crn way ... read tho. Classified Ads every single day!

CablxuU. has a better on-time performance record 1 tnan United, American I or Continental i In the airline business on-time performance Ls the name of the game. And for 13 months running (through January '76 when the latest CAB statistics were published) TWA has a better on-time performance record than United, American or Continental. And we'd like you to know exactly how we came out on top. You see, die facts of the matter are that the Civil Aeronautics Board monitors die on-time departure and arrival of every regularly scheduled flight for 100 U.S. city pairs (excluding those under 200 miles). Any flight arriving within 15 minutes of its scheduled arrival is considered to be on time. The CAB then records this information on their form 438. And based on these figures for 13 months through January of this year, TWA had more of its planes arriving on time (or within the 15-minute limit^ than United, American or Continental. It's a record our people worked hard for and we can understand why our competition is upset about it. These figures represent 55% of TWA's available seat miles actually flown, or about 2,000 flights each week. So the next time you have an important appointment somewhere, you know which airline to take. TWA.The on-time airline. TWA flies to NewYork,Chicago,Washington/Baltimore, Boston, St.Louis, Pittsburgh and many other major cities across the U.S. . \.'T. J.THORLEY ' ' ' City of Imt Bexk.
