Wheat was up 3% to 14 cents; corn off 1% to 10%; oats off Vz to up 4, and soybeans off 26 to up 18%. AM Answers FTC Request •For Ad Facts By BILL MILLER UPI Business Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Taxpayers annually spend billions for the type of transportation many regard as the least efficient, the most expensive, the worst air polluter, the most extravagant consumer of scarce [energy, the destroyer of the countryside and the strangler of our cities. _________ Business World . That would be the more than $6 billion spent each year for highways. Or possibly the $2.5 billion annual outlay for aviation and airports. Or both. Rail passenger service, however, gets but $263 million (yearly. In terms of efficiency, It is estimated one railroad track jean handle as many people as 20 lanes of expressway. Penn Station and Grand Central Station in Manhattan handle 105 million passengers a year on 124 acres. The three New York airports, on the other hand, handle less than a third as many passengers on 75 times as much land. This order of priorities, which allocates 85 per cent of the annual transportation budget to highways and airports, con cerns many people. "More and better mass transit could ease traffic jams, reduce air pollution and conserve energy fuel, not to i mention make moving around a lot more civilized," said a source at Mobil Oil Corp. Leonard Woodcock, president of the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America, said the Interstate Highway System has had negative effects. "In many places it has done serious ecological damage. In [others it has divided communities, disturbed patterns of urban life and created problems [of pollution whose effects have[ yet to be fully measured," he' said. Complaints generally focus on the Highway Trust Fund created by an act of Congress [in 1956. This instrument, filled with tax money from the sale of gasoline and other automobile-related products, makes highway building so easy and cheap for cities and states that mass transit seems impossibly expensive by comparison. States pay only 10 cents while the fund kicks in 90 cents of every dollar spent on highway construction. jThey must, however, pay from 133 cents to 50 cents for each dollar of mass transit money. Fails In House "It's a self perpetuating more gas you use, and more money flows into the trust fund, and more roads are built, which encourages you to drive more," said Linda Katz of the Highway Action Coalition in Washington. It is estimated there already are as many linear miles of highway in the country as square miles of space. Moves are afoot on Capitol Hill to open the Highway Trust Fund for other uses and service. It's a remote possibility the highway lobby still could lose, or be forced to compromise, when a House-Senate conference committee meets to reconcile the two bills. Sources close to the action figure the highway supporters will have to yield little. United States* rail passenger service, both intercity and urban, suffers by comparison with that of other countries, a DETROIT (UPI) — American Motors Corp! has issued a response to a Federal Trade Commission request that major automakers document media advertising claims on 1972 and 1973 model cars.

Indicators Off Profit Taking Drops Prices As Market Nears Year End Canada its LRC (Light, Rapid, Comfortable). Budd is Hurting In this country, about the only company with anything exciting is United Aircraft, the TurboTrain, and that has a lot of bugs. Budd, the prime contractor on the Metroliner, is hurting. "People don't seem to realize upgrading mass transit would greatly increase" its use and make highway and air travel less hectic," says Tony Haswell, chairman, National Association of Railroad Passengers. Haswell points to the Metrol- liner, which helped increase all train travel in the northeast corridor linking New York, [Newark, Trenton, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Baltimore and Washington by 50 per cent in its first eight months of operation.

Automobile 'Defeat Device' Ruled Out by Federal EPA By RON SCHERER UPI Business Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Profit taking dropped prices this week on the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts said the pullback was normal following the market's steep climb of recent (weeks and the usual year-end portfolio changes. Week on Wall Street Southern California's Salton Sea, formed when the fresh : water Colorado River overflowed from 1905 to 1907, is already more briny than the oceans. Agricultural waste waters carry more than 10,000 tons of salt into it every day. The Dow Jones av .age of 30 industrial issues fell 5.95 to 1,027.24. Monday's closing of 1,036.27 was an all-time high. Standard & Poor's 500 stock index declined 0.60 to 118.26. The NYSE common stock index dropped 3.38 to 64.63. The stock market was over due for a correction, analysts said, and this week it began to (slide, although there was little pres:ure to the selling, some of which was attributed to seasonal tax considerations. However, most analysts concluded, the stock market was "overbought and ready for the dip." The market remained sensitive Lo peace rumors as Wall Street ,saw a brief rally Friday based |on peace hopes. More Decline Of 1,975 issues traded this week, 1,211 declined, 586 advanced. Turnover for the week totaled 87,039,040 shares compared with 93,499,771 shares the week before and 89,333,650 shares a year earlier. The consolidation phase began Monday as investors ignored a White House announce­ ment that President Nixon would seek to extend wage and price controls beyond their scheduled April 30 expiration. [Brokers said the market hid been expecting the move. The remainder of the week saw moderate profit taking chop prices. Analysts said there was some disappointment that a peace pact vas yet to be signed in Paris. Presidential adviser Henry Kissinger returned to Washington, prompting one analyst to postulate, "A j Kissinger correlation." As hs noted, "When Henry's on his way to Washington the market |drops, and when he's on his way to Paris, it rises." Brief Rally On Friday the profit taking was interrupted by a twenty minute peace rally inspired by a French radio broadcast forecasting a cease-fire in 48 hours. The list backed off after White House denial of such a cease­ fire. American Telephone & Telegraph was the most active issue and rose % to 52% on 934,400 shares. AT&T has seen a resurgence of investor interest following a long decline. By EDWARD S. LECHTZIN UPI Automotive Writer DETROIT (UPI) — Automobile companies trying to provide easy-starting and efficient- running 1973 oars were told Firiday by tihe government to stop equipping cars with "defeat devices" that keep the pollution control system from oepratfitiig fully. The emission control sensors and shut-offs installed on many 1973 models help engine performance under certain driving conditions. But, according to the Enivironmental Protection Agency (EPA), "they do so at the cost of increasing emissions of air poMutajnts." | Many Owners Complain The industry knew since July Ithat the government was interested in the devices, but (claim they are used only to increase the efficiency of the engines. Complaints about enr gine performance, poor Starts and rough idling have been numerous from owners of the new models. Under one system, a temperature sensing device is installed under a car's hood. During cold wealther, the device will cut out the emission control system i while the car is being started. The second device in common use limits temporarily the (effectiveness of pollution control equipment at certain low speeds. Both devices appear on a majority of the 1973 models The EPA had warned that any device "inconsistent with the Clean Air Act of 1970" will bring problems 0o the maker. Threaten Action In a letter Friday to General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, American Motors, Nisan and Toyota, [EPA Administrator William P, (Ruckelhshaus said that unless the defeat devices are eliminated from cars manufactured afterthe dates specified in this order, the government will revoke the automaker's certification of conformity with federal rules on air pollution." No car can be shipped or sold without the certification. The auto companies said they possibly would appeal the order by a Dec. 22 deadline. If they do appeal, public hearings would be held, something Herbert L. Misch, Ford vice president for environmental and safety engineering staff, said is necessary. Sees Benefits Calling lor prohibition of devices whose sole purpose is to "subvert the intent of the clean air act," Misch said the devices in question provide "definite driveability benefits as well as effective emissions control." A similar Gnenai Motors statement said the auuxilary devices were installed "for the purpose of improving our cars' jfue] economy, driveability and start-up efficiency." Unless the EPA order is detayed by appeal and public hearings, the automakers face a possible $10,000 fine on each [car which is manufactured with the "defeat devices" after next Feb. 1. Pay Increases Going to Federal Employes, Army WASHINGTON (UPI)Some 1.3 million white' collar federal employes and all 2,4 million members of the U.S. armed forces will get substantial pay increases next month. President Nixon, Friday ordered across - t-he-board increases of 5.14 per cent for the civilian workers and 6.69 per cent for the military after Jan. 1. Fish Attracted To Warm Spot ERIE, Pa. (UPI) •- Each winter the Gizzard shad, a fish common to Lake Erie, has been attracted to the warm Water discharged at' the Pennsylvania Electric Co. plant on Presque Isle Bay. After a few days many of the fish die in the warmer water. The company decided to do something to discourage the winter influx of the fish. The first night major league j baseball game was played at Crosley Field, Cincinnati, Ohio, Ion May 24, 1935. These pay boosts had been scheduled to take effect last October.But Nixon postponed them as part of his anti- inflation policy. Officials said the restoration of the raises was intended to bring government pay more in line with that of orivate industry. But an administration freeze on the pay of "executive level" officials—those making more than $36,000 a year—remains in [effect. -The high-level freeze applies to four-star admirals and generals as well as civilians.
