., April It, 1173 UREELEY (Cote.) TRIBUNE · n No doubt another shaker is on the way Continued from page 26 9, 1971, in the San Fernando Valley. A relatively mild 6.6 magnitude shock at 6 a.m. left 64 dead and $50 million in property damage. The experts said the energy released in this quake was awesome and among the most severe ever recorded by man. Among the post-1906 quakes, the Santa Barbara disaster of June 29,1923, ranked high with a 6.3 convulsion that killed 20 persons and wrecked the entire business section. The Long Beach earthquake of March 10,1933, remains second only to the 1906 quake in the number of lives taken. The Richter rating was only 6.3, but 120 persons were killed when the Newport-Inglewood Fault slipped violently just before 6 p.m. Property damage was set at 150 million. On July 21, 1952, the most powerful quake since 1906 struck the Bakersfield-Tehachapi region with a 7.7 shock that killed 12 and caused severe structural damage in Arvin and Tehachapi. San Francisco's strongest quake since 1906 happened March 22,1957, when a mild 5.3 magnitude shaker broke windows, tumbled canned goods,but killed no one.

WATCH SI'ARK I'LUG WIRES F1NDLAY, Ohio (AP) - Car engine misfiring may be caused by faulty spark plug wires rather than the spark plugs themselves. According to an oil com- 'pany official, spark plug wires ] should be replaced every 24,000 miles. The wires deteriorate because of chemical attack from engine oil and gasoline fumes, says W. K. MacDonald, technical services manager for Marathon Oil Co. A new set of spark plug wires, he says, can often make n big difference in performance.
