Ever since, It has been In Ihe thick of the pushing and shoving betweeii industrial giants'and c i t i z e n environment groups, between Congress and Ihe White House, EPA not only survived, bul has made itself felt throughout the U.S. society, battling air and water pollution, banning hazardous pesticides, limiting automobile exhaust emissions and even offering an annual Gas Guzzlers Guide on new-car miles-pcr-gallon. Ollen' viewed by Industrial, agricultural and municipal In- Icrcsls as one of Ihe most Intrusive of federal agencies, EPA was created by then-President Richard M. Nixon who, in most other areas, wanted lo reduce federal regulation, not increase Envirunnwnl was already an issue in 1970 -- "smog" was no longer just a California comedian's joke; mercury, which had become a killer-pollutant in Japan, was found in U.S. streams; detergent phosphates were chokr ing the life mil of lakes; and (he [hrlll of supersonic flight was being quenched by the Icar of damage to the stratosphere. Congress was already passing environmental protection laws, whose -programs were scattered among doiens ot federal agen- ies. . To pull them all together, Ninon created EPA by executive action, and Congress accepted the love. William D. Ruckelshaus, an assistant', attorney general, was appointed to head EPA and took office Ihe same .day. EPA came Into 'existence, ; .Within a week, the U.S. government,was suing an Armco steel : plant .[or polluting the Houston Ship Channel and EPA was embarked on n long series of efforts lo enforce existing clean- water laws. , : By the end oi that-month, Congress passed and the President signed n Clean Air Act, giving EPAliie Job ot supervising slate clean-up, plans and establishing aulomobile standards. .

Gary Thomas Rowe Jr., who now lives under an alias in California, is scheduled to testify today before the Senate Intelligence Committee. A com- mlllee spokesman said Rowe would wear a mask during his testimony in order to protect his now identity: . Rowe said Monday lhal he repeatedly warned the FBI of planned Klan violence during his five years as an informant but thai agents seldom took action to stop it. In an interview, he cited one 1961 incident in which he notified the FBI three.weeks in advance of a planned Klari attack on a group of freedom riders in lenglng the legality of the wire taps, said Nixon ordered removal of the information [ram the Justice Department al Ihe urging of Robert C.

On Monday, a House .panel tieard Hoover's long-lime personal secretary, Helen Gandy, say she was carrying out Hoover's wishes when she destroyed all his personal files shortly after his death. "Mr. Hoover would not have allowed them to be used if he had been living " she testified Monday. "I had my instructions."

(...mi the Lady') "People just got all beat to hell," Rowe said. He said he recalled only one instance in which Ihe FBI acled on one of his warnings and averted planned violence. Rowe at one point was charged in connection with the 1965 murder of white civil rights worker Viola Liuzzo near Selma, Ala. Three Klansmen were convicted of civil rights violations at a trial in which Rowe appeared as .the government's star witness. A grand jury failed to indict Rowe, and charges against him were dropped. He said he decided to testify because the Justice Department [ailed to fulfill promises to him of money and 2 lifetime government job. Meanwhile, John N.

Baytonian Is Charged In Check Case A Baytown woman has been charged .with seven counts of passing worthless checks in the BaytowT. area. Kimberly Locked, 23, of 2700 Ward Road, was arrested Monday morning by Deputy Constable George Scott and Del. Arthur Oviedo. Baytown merchants with outstanding checks on the woman are asked to contact Justice of Ihe Peace N. 0. Morrison at 4277449. The woman remained in city jail early .Tuesday. SAFETY - - (CMllMtd Fran Pi»c II The worker did not realize the can contained a heavy load of tUe. Hickerson said the city is training employes now to always lest (he load before actually lifting it. "If it is too heavy for the resident to lifl, it is too heavy for the city employe. You don't need a scale to know that," he said, adding that the public could ;reatly help by not overfilling jthe cms. And several injuries have occurred from another "booby- lrap"-glass in plastic garbage cans. Records reflect, too, that most injuries occur among new employes. This indicates the city needs to have a stronger orientation program for new employes. "When we get a personnel department," Hickerson said, "we hope lo star! an indoctrina- lion program for new employes. The city has Ihe responsibility to poinl out the safely hazards." (The cily is in the process of hiring a personnel director, a position approved in the current budget.) The city's safety program started Jan. 1 under Ihe direction o! Hickerson. For the first lime records are being kept on accidents and the city is taking action to prevent accidents by studying Ihese records. Hickerson says he is getting good cooperation not only from city departments but from physicians who are being asked to fill out forms on the nature of injuries. Safety programs are relatively new in municipalities. One of the few cities ahead in this field is Port Arthur where only nine disabling injuries per 1 million hours of work occurred last year. "And they have a few more employes than we have," Hickerson noted. "Port Arthur has had a safety program longer than other cities. They hired a consultant from Texaco to direcl their program. "And Port Arthur's record shows what a safety program will do." o research that point and make ruling, Clark said.
