Hearing To Begin Today On Banning Alaskan Pipeline "y JOHN KAMI'S WASHINGTON ( A P ) -- A federal Judge begins hearing arguments lodny on whether ha should make permanent his temporary ban on a proposed 789-mllc oil pipeline bisecting " Alaska. U.S. District Court Judge ' George L. Hart Jr. In April 1870 granted a temporary injunction 1 ngajnsl the pipeline which tho ' Alyeska Pipeline Co. wants lo build lo carry oil from the fro" zen North Slope to the ice-free port of Valdez on the southern shore. Environmentalist have stalled conslruclion, on grounds tlio Interior Deparlmcnl has not complied with Ihe National Environmental Policy Act which they siiy requires an adequate statement, of Ihe project's environmental impacts compared with reasonable alternatives. Interior Secretary Rogers C.B. Morton Jr. submitted in March an environmental impact statement which he bus said is final, but which environmentalists say is only the first draft. Morton has announced his Intention, to grant permits to a consortium of seven oil companies for construction of the pipeline. The environmentalisls have asked Harl to enjoin the Interior Department from issuing Ihe permils until Morion has adequately studied an allernalive Irans-Canada pipeline and has complied wllh the leller of t h e environmental laws. Morton has voiced hope thai Ihe injunctions would be lifted before Labor Day, but said the decision probably would be ap pealed.' Many members of Congress wrole Morton demanding more hearings and further consideration of the Irans-Canada pipeline. The Canadian pipeline, carrying oil from tha North Slope to the Midwestern U.S. border, would be twice as long as the Alaska pipeline. But some say it would do less damage to the environment. t Environmentalists have charged that Irreparable darn- age would ba done to the environment as a result of oil spills resulting from earthquakes which might rupture Ihe pipe linÂ» and f r o m the melting ol permanently frozen groum near tha hot pipeline. Arguments were to center on environmental issues today ant on mineral-leasing laws Tues ay, according lo Hurl's sened- 'o.

Tho union contended that the Ipeline would h u r t fishing In Inska streams and Prince Wil- nin Sound, Alycska faces another lem- orury injunction which Hart ranted in 1970 to k e e p the Ipeline away from the Stevens illage area on the Yukon Riv- r. Alycska, formerly known as ie Trans-Alaska Pipeline Sys- m, estimated in 1970 that its ipeline could be built for about billion. Bui later eslimales ndicale aclual costs may run much higher since much of the ipeline may have lo be hullt bove ground.

Scientists disagree on how luch damage will result when he permafrost is melted by the eiited oil r u n n i n g through the B-incli pipeline. Some predict arth slides and r u p t u r e s of Ihe ipe.

(AP) -I Vilh no presidential nomination! lybt this yciir but one possibly oorulnfi Tour yciira nway, the Icnuhlican parly today nuKun examining proposed broadened rule cluingcs for 1D7C, A full day of hearings was scheduled ty the Rules Committee of the Republican Na- .lonnl ComtnlUce to hear testimony from more than 20 witnesses, most of whom are urging new nppi'oachcs to expand tlic base of the party. After receiving the Rules Committee's recommendations Delegates Committee, created by Tuesday, the mittce will national decide com- wliat changes it will ask the convention's own rules committee to send to the floor for action by delegates next week. The convention opens next Monday, and President Nixon's renominalton is assured. He has announced that Vice President Spiro T. Agnew will again be his running mate. CONTROVERSIAL The two most controversial proposals before the committee would change the method of allocating . convention delegates among the states and gh'p women, young people and blacks more responsibility within the parly. Heavy attacks have been made on both proposals by conservative Republicans who think they are designed to weaken conservative influence in the parly and damage Agnew's chances for the 197G presidential nomination if he shoulc want it. Tim basic reform proposals jeforc the Ilules Committee were drawn up last year by the nnlttce In 10GB.

Prospecls for approval of the controversial proposals dimmed almost lo trie vanlshhing point last week when a group of reform-minded Republican senators and rcprescnlatlvcs said they were unable to support Ihcm. HECOMMENDED The reformers arc recommending Instead that the par- ly's b a s i c discrimination rule be expanded to Include clauses against dlscrimlnalion on Ihe basis of sex or age and Ihal slate parties lake positive steps to see that the rule is ob served.' Proposals to change the method of allocating delegates to the slates have been sup ported'by .the Ripon Society, a liberal Republican organization and by Sen. Charles 3. Percy of Illinois. Both moves would i n c r e a s e Ihe convention strength of the larger, Industri al states. The present allocation system awards six bonus delegates to each state, regardless of size, hat went Republican in the )rcvbus election. The system Â·v a s held unconstitutional recently by a federal district court In Washington. That ruing has been appealed by Ihe Republican National Committee. Talk Confirmed FORT SMITH, Ark.
