Idaho, was the first municipal district in the country to reach a settlement with the U.S Department of Justice for violation of a waler pollution clean-up permit Clifford V Smith Jr.. nor- lliwesi regional administrator for the Environmental P r o t e c t i o n Agency, in announcing the scltlemeni said Hie Eagle district admitted it allowed sew.igc lo bypass the city's treatment facility. The special purpose authority furnishing waler and sewer services lo Ihe Eagle community also failed to report the by pass to the KPA. Bolh actions w ere violations of Ihe permit issued under Ihe National Pollution Discharge F.liminalion Syslem, a program set up by the Federal Water Pollution Control Department of Just Roth actions were violations of the permit issued under (he National Pollution Discharge F.liminalion System SAN FRANCISCO (UP1) - Patricia Hearst's notes from a terrorism class and a two-page checklist for a bank rnblwry bearing her fingerprint have been allowed in evidence al her trial by an increasingly impatient federal judge. The damaging documenls, both found in the last hideout of the Symbionese Liberation Army, were introduced by the prosecution Thursday during another day devoted almost exclusively to arguments on legal points. U S . District Judge Oliver J. Carter made it clear he's had enough of Ihe delays that have stretched the bank robbery trial to six weeks -- with no real indication when it will go to the jury. He told prosecution and defense lawyers he'd give them 30 minutes today lo clear up all procedural mailers, then the jury was coming into court and a witness was going lo lake the stand "And that's an order," Carter said. Dr. Joel Fort of San Francisco, the first of two prosecution psychiatrists, was testifying when courl recessed -- but wilh Ihe jury out of Ihe courtroom. He was called to defend himself against bias charges by the defense. Most of (lie day was taken up in arguments over specific items ol evidence against Miss Hearst found in the apartment where SLA members William and Emily Harris were living al Ihe time of their capture lasl fall. Carter allowed Ihe prosecution lo introduce a paper with notes iu Miss Hearst's handwriting on making timing devices anil attaching them lo fuses, locating "switch cars," setting a lime for a "meet to talk about shooting." and "security" plans One section said: "Timing device with fuse ...clock (set 10 minutesi or cigarelle iwire in fusel." The judge also permitted introduction of a JSO-word outline on robbing a bank. Prosecutor James L. Browning Jr. has dubbed it a "laundry list of things to do if one is going to rob a hank " FEA revises energy map WASHINGTON (l!PI) - Set- hacks in the nuclear power industry and reduced estimates of America's oil bounty will make it harder and more costly In achieve energy independence than was forecast a year ago. ucciirdiiis; In top energy planners. Nonetheless. Federal Energy Administrator Frank Zarb believes the I'niled Stales can brejk its reliance on foreign oil with "lough minded and ... obviously aggressive actions" in the coming decade. The KEA's new energy inrecasl was presented Thursday in a liOO page study which officials said was more realistic and carefully prepared than last year's forecasl. One factor behind the gloomier projections include the utility industry's plans to cancel 73 alomic power reactors, cutting (he forecast role of nuclear energy by one-third. President Ford last year called for the creation of 200 nuclear power plants by I9ai. ti SIKI) the now sludy said is impossible to achieve because so many plants have been canceled due In financial and regulatory problems. There are now 56 commercial nuclear power plants supplying R.G per cent of America's power needs. The study predicted a maximum 150 to 180 plants will supply 26 per cent of the nation's power by 1985. Last year's study said removing domestic oil and gas price controls could cm imports to 3.3 million barrels a day by 1985. The new study says decontrol can only achieve a reduction to 5.1) million barrels from the current 6.1 million barrels a day. Energy independence has been defined as holding 1985 imports lo -1 or 5 million barrels a day. a level al which the United Stales could survive a six month embargo. The FRA said oil imports will increase for the next two years until the flow begins from new Alaskan oil fields. The study said deregulation plus accelerated production and increased conservation, could cut imports lo I million or 2 million barrels a day by 1985. But with continued federal controls. 1985 imports could soar to 13.5 million barrels a day. it added. Pan Am faces criminal count NEW YORK lUPli - Pan American World Airways has pleaded no conlcsi lo an indictment charging that its violation of federal cargo transport rules caused a 1D73 jet crash in Boston which killed llirce. crewmen. Il was (he first time an airline had been criminally proseculed in connection wilh an air crash. The federal grand jury in Brooklyn also charged four other corporations and an employe of one of the firms. A number of civil siiils resulting Irom the crash are slill pending. U.S. A t t o r n e y David G. Trager said the indictments provided the first criminal prosecution for violating Federal Aviation Administration regulations. Trager said they would serve notice thai the rules would he "slriolly enforced." Pan Am faces a maximum fine of $(10.000 by U.S. Dislricl Court Judge Orrin .ludd on one felony and 50 misdemeanor counts. Also pleading jioconlest in Ihe case was Hie National Semiconductor Corp. of Santa Clara, Calif.

Each firm faces a maximum fine of $25.000. Pleading innocent were San- lini Brothers Inc. of the Bronx and its office manager, William Iliggins. Sanlini faces a maximum $275,000 in fines if convicted on all 208 counts; Iliggins faces up to 11 years imprisonment and an $11,000 fine. The Pan Am Boeing 707 cargo jcl crashed at Logan Airport in Boston Nov. 3, 1973, wilh 15,000 pounds of "dangerous articles and hazardous materials" aboard. It was en route from Kennedy Airport to Preslwick, Scotland, with supplies for a National Semiconductor plant. Among the hazardous items, the indictment said, were 160 improperly packed and loaded packages of nitric acid. The grand jury said the acid, resting on ils side instead of upright, began seeping inlo the conlainers' insulating material, which included highly flammable sawdust. The packages caught fire, filling Ihe cockpil wilh smoke and obscuring Ihe vision of the crew members. Smilhurn churches were requested to dnnale their bells to Ihe Confederate Army so the melal could IK; converted inlo cannon during Ihe Civil War. Come In And Look Around!

Carter udmilled the papers over vehement objections from defense attorney K. I,ce Bailey, who insisted none was connected with Ihe April 15, 197-t, robbery of Ihe Hibernia Hank in San Krancisco for which she is on (rial. The judge refused to admit in evidence another document indicating Miss Hearst also "cased" another bank during her underground life and made handwritten notes about ils employes. Me said he was concerned jurors might confuse the diagram of a Sacramento bank wilh handwritten notes on il. including iwo lines in Miss Hearst's hand, with a bank in the Sacramento suburb of Caimichael which was held up on April 21. 1975. The SI.A has been linked lo that holdup, in which a woman customer was killed by a shotgun blast. The bank in the diagram was never robbed. Forl was called wilh Ihe jury absent to answer Bailey's charge thai he had disseminated a news release which could be construed as attacking Ihe n,ualifications and impartiality of Ihrec defense psychiatrists. The prosecution witness also wrote a letter (o (he judge and "members of the press" asking lhal his name not be used or his picture printed in any accounts of his testimony.
