SANTA B A R B A R A (UP1)--A witness at a Senaie subcommittee hearing on offshore oil operations Monday accused the federal government of contradictory behavior. . "The federal government appears one day as Mr. Clean, foe of dirty water. The next day the same government puts on its black hat and pollutes our water." charged Charles A. O'Brien, chief deputy state attorney general. I* A * » O'BRIEN WAS the first witness at a two-man air and water pollution subcommittee of the Senate Public Works Committee which opened a two-day hearing into the Union Oil Co. leakage into the Santa Barbara Channel. County petroleum engineer David K. Bickmore suggested declaring the Santa Barbara Channel, polluted by nearly a quarter of a million gallons of oil from a runaway well, a federal oil reserve. "If the Santa Barbara Channel were to be declared a federal oil reserve, time would enhance the value and importance of this strategic deposit," Bickmore said. "Currently we have an oversupply of Reinecke Sees Stiffcr Drill Laivs I I.A -10LLA UPI) -Stiffer federal regulations for the control of offshore-oil drilling are expected after the government reviews its drilling laws, Lt Gov. Ed Reinecke said Monady. Reinecke told an oceanographic symposium here that Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel had assured him the federal government was going to review its laws concerning offshore-oil drilling in the wake of the Santa Barbara oil leak. "As a result of this opening of the eyes of federal people, we'll have a much stiffer set of regulations," he said. Reinecke also said the state would review its own already-strong restrictions. He urged a new system of coinspection of offshore-oil operations. "California inspectors should have the right to inspect drilling procedures and equipment" beyond the present three-mile siate limit, and extending into the federal jurisdiction of the continental shelves, he said. oil. We may some day wish we had saved this huge reserve of oil and gas." SEN. ROBERT Dole. R- Kan.. a subcommittee member, said. "your suggestion for a federal reserve has appeal. It makes a lot of sense to me." Subcommittee chairman Joseph Montoya, D-N. M., opened the hearing by saying: "While we cannot undo what has happend here, the lessons learned will enable us to the best of our ability to make sure it does not happen again." O'Brien said that before new legislation on oil pollution is enacted, the government should clarify its internal policies on the old legislation. He called for new laws to provide for a higher standard of care on the part of oil companies operating on (he outer continental shelf. It must clearly set forth the responsibility and liability of such operators for the pollution they cause, he said. * * # * MEANWHILE, crude oil continued to wash ashore on beaches here, four weeks after the initial leakage from Union's offshore A-2 well. The Coast Guard reported gas and oil was bubbling up at three locations within 500 feet of plat- form A, and Union officials confirmed that the situation had prevailed for some time. The company maintained beach cleanup crews up and down the coast clearing gummy sand, but the oil continued to drift ashore unabated driven by rains and onshore winds. Boeing Looks For Bleak 69 SEA1TLE (UPI) -- The Boeing Co. reported Monday it sold more but earned less in 1968 and forecast a decline in sales and earnings for 1969. William M. Allen, chairman of the board, reported sales in 1968 established a new one-year high with net earnings of SS3 million, slightly below the 1967 record of $83.9 million. Earnings amounted to S3.S4 per share, or 2.5 per cent of sales, compared with $4.10 per share and 2.9 per cent of sales for 1967. Allen said the decline in earnings was the result of continued heavy charges on the 747 and 737 jet transport programs, lower earnings on government programs, and the 10 per cent surcharge on federal income tax. Reimburse 9 Plan Loses SACRAMENTO WB -A "learn, earn, and reimburse" tuition plan to finance higher education at state colleges and universities was defeated in the A s s e m b 1 y 's Education Committee Monday despite solid Republican support. Five Democrats voting against the bill spelled doom for the plan which would have required students to pay approximately §2,500 to §3,000 for four years of education --· either during school or after graduation. Democratic Assemblyman Kenneth Cory of Garden Grove and Willie L. Brown Jr. of San Fransisco, strong opponents of the measure, said a proposed amendment would provide a major tax loophole for wealthy students, who could pay off the $3,000 as a university gil'l -- and claim il as a federal income tax deduction. WASHINGTON (UPI) -Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas Monday granted a stay of ex- eution to Edmund Earl Reeves, 31, who was scheduled to die March 5 in San Quentin prison's gas chamber.
