' Battle on For Electric Control INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —The Indiana Public Service Commission has gone on record in favor of,a bill which would prevent the Federal Power Commission from assuming jurisdiction over intrastate electric utilities. The states and the FPC have been engaged for some time in a battle over control of firrns selling electric energy within states. The FPC has been gradually exercising more and more control over such firms. A resolution adopted by the PSC Thursday urged enactment of the bill and asked for a chance to testify when a Senate subcommittee headed by Sen. Vance 'Hartke, D-lnd., conducts a hearing on the measure. PSC Chairman Merton Stanley said he already has tentative plans to appear before the subcommittee May 12 or May 13 - . ' I, The resolution said that it is "desirable that the jurisdiction of the Federal Power Commission be more clearly defined by Congress. (Federal regulation should not extend to matters which are of.local concern and are-or can be regulated by the various states and the/appropriate regulatory bodies." The FPC contends that since the firms have interconnection with other electric transmission companies they are engaged in interstate commerce and subject to federal regulation. Step up.

The convoys demonstrated the Allied rights of freedom of movement, but civilian trucks and automobiles moved only at the pleasure of the Communists. First Serious Attempt The Russians informed ,the Western Allies certain altitudes within the Berlin air corridors would be reserved for Soviet planes. It was the first serious Russian attempt to interfere with air trafifc since March, 1962, more than a year before the Berlin wall' vi-as built. However, the - Allies rejected the Soviet bid for a share of the air corridors, the most delicate and vital Western links to this city. "We're still flying," commented a spokesman, at U. S. Air Force European headquarr ters at Wiesbaden. Civilian airlines said there was no report of trouble from their planes flying the routes to Berlin. Have Field Day But on the ground the East Germans were having'a field dayv A four-mile-long line of civilian autos lined up in front of East German barricades at Helmstedt, the West German crossing point on the main highway to Berlin. Some motorists turned on ear radios and danced on the pavement to pass the time during holdups of up to 20 hours. Communist guards allowed Western traffic onto two other autobahns only to halt them just before they' reached Berlin. The Communists kept hands off traffic on the fourth route—a nightmare of 100 miles of bad road. Soviets Guard Bridges Motorists reported e v e r y bridge and crossing along the main Helmstedt - Berlin, autobahn was , guarded by Soviet troops armed with submachine guns. Berliners did not have to venture out on the autobahns to get a taste of Communist .Harassment. All day, Soviet jet fighters slashed over the Western sector, breaking the sound barrier and filling the air with booms. Informed- sources said the Russians tried to "reserve" air space in the corridors between approximately 6,000 and 10,000 feet. The Western Allies protested the latest Communist move as the Communists waged a.mas­ sive propaganda campaign jgainst the West in an attempt to sabotage this week's meeting of the West German Parliament in West Berlin. '"The spokesman said the Russians at the four-power air safety center announced the altitudes in the three 20-mile air corridors. They said the Russian planes were taking part in maneuvers. Commercial Flights Continue Western Allied commercial air flights continued to the city. , East German border guards used joint Russian-East German maneuvers that began today as a pretext to halt all German traffic to and from Berlin along the 110-mile Berlin- 'Helmstedt highway, the city's main .connection with the West earlier today cleared through a Russian checkpoint in East Germany without difficulty. The Communists warned that the meeting on Wednesday of the Bundestag (lower house of parliament) would have "serious consequences." East Germany contends the meeting is illegal on the ground that West Berlin is not part of West Germany. Earlier, all members of parliament had been blocked from traveling to Berlin by road or rail.
