A2 SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2001 THE SALINA JOURNAI T DOWNED SPY PLANE It's worth a thousand words Salina Journal A crew member's dad says picture proves son is 'alive and well' By DEB RIECHMANN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A blurry photo, the only public peek of the Navy air crew held, in China, shows the Americans looking straight ahead as if listening to a lecture, their faces blank and offering little hint of their ordeal. . Taken Tuesday when U.S. officials for the first time were allowed to visit the Americans, the photograph has 11 of the 24 crew members seated at rows of long red tables. The photo brought instant relief to some of the captives' relatives. • "It proved he is alive and well," said Tom Crandall of Love's Park, 111., father of Navy Seaman Jeremy Crandall. Crandall said he knew U.S. officials had visited the crew. "But I had no confirmation myself that he is alive. So that (picture) proves it." Crandall said it appeared that his son, who is crinkling his nose in the photo, looked defiant. "He looked mad. I'm glad. That means he's still strong," CrandaU said. : China's decision to continue to detain the crew has heightened tension between the two nations. ; But despite the stolid expressions in the photo.

"There is no indication of any physical or verbal mistreatment," Powell said, reporting on a second visit U.S. officials made to the crew Friday The photo shows eight of the 21 men who were on the plane and all three of the women. The female members of the air crew are the most prominently depicted in the photo. They are seated at a table closest to the camera. The faces of others, seated in the back of the room, are grainy No one is smiling. And no one is making any hand gestures. In 1968, when a photo was snapped of crew members of the USS Pueblo, an intelligence gathering ship captured by North Korea, some of them made obscene gestures with their fingers to "salute" their captors. After the photo of the air crew in China flashed on his television Friday, James Coursen of Niles, Ohio, thought he recognized his son, Shawn, a cryptology technician operator on the plane. "1 hollered at my wife to come in. She looked real close, and she said 'No, it wasn't him.' We were hoping,' " Coursen said.

Sania Fe / Salina | Report shows energy prices aren't going down any time soon By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Drivers could face a new round of surging prices at the gas pump this summer, the government says, citing tight supplies through the year's heaviest driving season. Last year gas prices reached $2 a gallon. : The Energy Department's forecast also anticipates continued high natural gas prices that are likely to fuel steeper electricity costs across much of the country Many power plants tun on natural gas. The government's seasonal forecast predicted a high probability that motorists this summer will pay on average more for gasoline than the $1.53 cents a gallon they paid last summer. How much more will depend on supply and distribution problems, the department said. Average gasoline prices nationwide this week were about $1.44 a gallon, according to the government survey With current inventories tight,' the gasoline markets will be "vulnerable to sharp price Pool & Spa SERVICE run-ups if supply disruptions or bottlenecks occur," said the report, issued Friday by the Energy Information Administration. It said that by the end of May, the beginning of the summer driving season, gasoline inventories are expected to be about 200 million barrels, or 9 million barrels below what they were at the same time last summer, A Federal 'Trade Commission report on la^t summer's gasoline price spikes in the Midwest, where prices soared for a time well past $2 a gallon, recently warned that prices could surge again this summer The FTC investigation, which focused on the Midwest market, found no evidence of industry collusion, although it said some companies took advantage of last summer's tight supplies to maximize profits. The report noted Midwest gasoline supplies are lower now than they were a year ago, and a major Illinois refinery is closed. The energy outlook report said the economic slowdown had been expected to ease the squeeze on crude oil supplies. However, it said crude oil inventories remain tight because of the recent decision by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to cut production by 1 million barrels a day beginning in April. Although the winter heating season is over, natural gas prices probably won't ease but will remain at more than twice what they were in 1999 at about $5 per thousand cubic feet, the government analysts said. They said natural gas prices, which spiked $10 per tliousand cubic feet this past winter, could rebound sharply again this fall. depending on the severity of next winter A particular worry is the low level of natural gas stocks in underground storage.
