Times Service WASHINGTON-As the nation's first surface-mining legislation inches toward completion, a leading coal organization seems to welcome the bill more than do several critics of stripping. "We certainly hope, with all the work that has gone into it, that a bill will come out this year," said William Hynan, a legal official of the National Coal Assoc., which represents many of the larger companies. We have supported federal regulation." Yet Louise Dunlap, an official of the Environmental Policy Center here, which gathers information for environmental groups, expressed her fear that the ultimate bill might fall short of relatively strong laws in Pennsylvania and Ohio while Rep. Ken Hechler, D-W. Va., Coal Group Welcomes New Bill More Than Most Mine Critics Do into mountain slopes that aretary of the Interior." tion is handed over to the Interior Department. The bill is headed for a final crucial markup session in the House Committee on Interior nd Insular Affairs Wednesday. A controversial amendment that would limit strip mining in many mountain areas may be introduced, although the National Coal Assoc. is opposed to it. The Senate Interior Committee las placed as many as two-dozen bills ahead of its surface mining bill and will be hard- pressed to tackle the issue this r ear. * · * MEANWHILE, at least 4,650 acres are being stripped each week, according to the Council n Environmental Quality, and at least 241,800 were stripped in 971 in the 26 states that have seen "blessed" with coal. A "domino theory" of stripping contends that an even greater area is hurt by striping. The federally appointed :o-chairman of the Appalachian legional Commission, Donald W. Whitehead, has stated' that while only 7 per cent of land in the typical mountain town of Appalachia, Va., has actually been stripped, another 69 per cent of surrounding land is af- ected. While stripping has been developed in the hapless Appa- achian states, even larger coal deposits are being eyed in Western states like Wyoming and Montana, whose residents have not yet seen their land churned over by b u l l d o z e r s , their streams turned red from acid. And the critics fear that a weak nil could legitimize the stripping industry for years to come. The House bill is considered uperior to the Senate by mosl coal critics. It stipulates that wblic notice must be given be- ore a strip mining permit can be granted and provides for for Things are Happening at o rr o WELCOME TO STERN BROTHERS AT GRAND CENTRAL MALL THURSDAY, AUGUST 17 We're happy to be one of the first to open our beautiful new store at Parkersburg's exciting Grand Centra] Mall.

KEN HECHLER Constant Critic hearings. It also provides cease-and-desist powers if the operator is found in violation. It calls for bi-monthly inspections, unannounced and unscheduled, and insists that the operator reclaim the land to its original or alternative state. * # * THE HOUSE Interior Committee, chaired by Rep. Wayne H. Aspinall, D-Colo., has considered 80 amendments proposed by the American Mining Congress and the National Coal Assn. -and another 30 favored by the Environmental Policy Center. Two EPC amemdments, introduced by Rep. John Melcher, D-Mont., were passed last week but a final amendment may provoke some fireworks this Wednesday. This is the proposal that waste material not be dumped over the horizontal cuts made steeper than 14 degrees. This is to avoid the slides so common in Appalachia, where residents never know when a boulder or loose shale, dumped over the side by callous strippers, wil come crashing into their corn fields or their bedrooom. This proposal originated with ARC cochairman Whitehead. It would force the removal of waste material by truck, a costly procedure. But Hynan of the NCA said Friday: "Arbitrary prohibition above certain slopes is jut not realistic. Many methods in steep slopes are good although admittedly a few have been bad in the past. It is our belief that techniques rather than technology will improve markedly in the next few years. We would prefer to leave the discretion for the degree of slope with the secre- State Wreck Kills Ohioan POINT PLEASANT--An Ohio man was killed and another man injured in an early morning collision Saturday south of here on W. Va. 2, state police said. Olen Wade Litchfield, 51, of Kanauga, Ohio, was killed in the two-car head-on accident that occurred just after 2 a.m. Trooper A. E. Baumgardner said. Driver of the second vehicle, 26-year-old Jerry Lynn Rainey. of Gallipolis Ferry, was treated and released from Pleasant Valley Hospital at 3:30 a.m. Trooper Baumgardner said the exact cause of the collision had not been determined and the investigation is continuing. Hechler, who is not a member of the House Interior Committee, says he is opposed to both the House and Senate bills giving jurisdiction to the Interior Department and be suggests the Environmental Protection Agency would be a better administrator. He has constantly criticized Interior's Bureau of Mines for its administration of the 1969 Coal Health and Safety Act, whicli he helped prepare. r CITY NATIONAL BANK IS. PEOPLE WITH DEDICATION This is the fifth in a new series on the personnel of the City National Bank. It is p u b l i s h e d in keeping w i t h our thought that a bank is a great deal more than a place where checks are cashed, deposits made, or transactions take place. Rather, a bank is the people who operate it. It is to have you meet the people at the City National Bank that this series is being published.
