Sheriff to Buy Gas In Bulk, Save Half The Natrona County Sheriff's office's gasoline bill will be cut in half by a bulk buying program, Sheriff Bill Estes said Wednesday.

Presently, the sheriff's gas bill is around $600 a month and the cost of gas is greater because smaller quantities are purchased. By going in with the rest of the county, which buys gas by the tanker-full, the gas bill will be around $300 a month, he said. Although it will be more Inconvenient for deputies to gas up in Mills, Estes said the change will save the county $3,600 a year. .

Evansville Mayor Walt Wirtala, who wrote the highway department earlier this year, commented: "They (the residents of Evansville) are taking an Interest. These people are concerned, and this is what will save lives." ... Town Marshal Joseph P. Heide said he has spent "considerable time" at the notorious Intersection since a fatality occurred there July 16. He said that he has observed 12 different times that "accidents almost happened." "It Isn't only the out-of-staters, it's us," Heide said. "We're making, in other words, our own hazard." People Not Cars "The engineer comes out here and looks at our problem for maybe two days," he added. "We're looking at it 365 days. "He comes out and counts the cars. We took at the people," the town marshal added.

There were 19 injuries and two fatalities. He said 27 of those accidents occurred at right angles, and half of the accidents occurred after Individual motorists had stopped and then had gone ahead. The seven-hour count had been made 7-9 ajn., 11 a jn. to 1 p jn., and 4-7 p on. He noted that the state manual showed that the only time there was enough traffic to allow Installation of a stoplight were 4-6 P One person noted that the Aug. 24 study occurred before school started and therefore did not reflect the increase, if any, In school traffic. Griffin said, however, that the state would Include the Evansville request Into Casper TOPICS (Traffic Operation Plan to Increase Traffic and Safety), hopefully so. that federal funds could be used to Install a traffic control. He noted also that the railroad track just south of the highway would need its control coordinated with the traffic light Other prouems include the service road next w the highway on the north side and the fact Cloudy, By United Prtu International BIG HORN BASIN-Partly doudy through Friday.

Mrs. Judy Eggert, program director for the PTA, asked if action on getting a stoplight could be speeded up by "bugging Cheyenne."" Griffin said that if she wanted to call Gov. Stan Hathaway that the governor would then call the superintendent of the highway department, the superintendent would call the director of operations and the director would call Casper "back down to me." "It would be dumped right back in my lap and he'd ask me what was going on down there," Griffin said. , Marshal Heide said that residents were ready to help in any way they could. "I think any ammunition we can give him (Griffin) will help all the way down the line," Heide said. Took Big Step Griffin said the fact that Mayor Wirtala had asked fx help was the big step.

Agnew's "dirty work." The head of the FCC told a Senate hearing Into freedom of the press that Stanton "has promulgated a conspiracy theory" ever since Agnew first attacked broadcasting networks in November. 1069.". "It has become a folklore which" is highly prized by broadcasters," Burch said, "and it goes like this: the vice president says . something and the FCC will move in and do the ditry work by taking away li-censes or whatever. ' "The only thing wrong with the theory is that it is false. And Dr. Stanton knows it is false. He can cite no evidence that coincides with that particular theory ... I really am a bit disgusted that Dr. Stanton keeps bringing up this conspiracy theory because it simply will not wash." Stanton, whose network was involved In a long dispute with the House Commerce Committee over the ,CBS documentary! "The Selling of the Pentagon," preceded Burch by two weeks at the hearings by the subcommittee on constitutional rights. At that time, he expressed concern that "the dark shadow of surveillance" by the government Inhibited broadcasters' right to free speech. He said the future of American democracy is threatened by government Intimidation of the news media. Burch, as proof that Stanton's fears were exagerrated, said "in the entire history of the FCC only three cases have been decided against networks." But Nicholas Johnson, an FCC commissioner often at odds with Burch, offered what he called "a little refutation of the chairman's suggestion that there was absolutely no conspiracy between Agnew and the FCC." Johnson said the FCC issued its "ill-fated and notorious order" which "was widely interpreted as a ruling that rock music dealing with the subject of drugs should no longer be played on radio stations" after a White House meeting attended by Burch. "Shortly after Agnew discovered rock music and found that he didn't like It," Johnson said, "there was a meeting at the White House at which record company executives and broadcasters were Invited, at which Dean Burch was present, at which they were all urged to please not play such music any more and that shortly following that the FCC issued the controversial order.'
