The stock dropped a point or so and Ehrhart fired off a letter to the airline demanding a flub stub because the transaction "caused me considerable embarrassment." The flub stub came back by return mail from Wayne Lichtgarn, Western's customer relations man, who said: "I-know, just how you also hold Western. Airlines stock.

I am issuing a flubitub to myself also." reaf Tiryck Bern, People tals along the MacArthur than along the Nimitz, he said, "and they were there before the freeway was built. Those along the Nimitz came after the truck route was designated in 1949." Sutter said it was "ridiculous" to say that the MacArthur ban could lead to similar bans on every highway. "The only reason the MacArthur ban was' approved," he said, "was because there was an adequate alternate route available." The Nimitz freeway is flat, he said, whereas there are many grades -on the MacArthur, and the noise factor w- t. take to ensure the health, safety and well-being of its citizens. "The question of whether the truck ban is a reasonable use of police power," Brom said, "is something only the courts can decide.

However, according to Simmons, the matter is not before the courts. He said the ban, which expires Jan. 1, was made with the approval of the state and federal public works departments, and both agencies must agree to an extension before the expiration date. Simmons and Sutter said the federal department has indicated it would not overrule any decision by the state agency, which leaves the matter up to Samuel B. Nelson, director of the State Department of Public Works.Nelson-' is an appointee of Gov.

Ronald Reagan. Zeller said the trucking association's objections to the ban were on three main points: the state? Are the schools and hospitals more valuable?" Sommersett said there are as many people living alongside the Nimitz Freeway as the a statement challenged by Sutter, who said the Nimitz passes through industrial zoning for almost the entire distance that it is within the Oakland city limits, which is the only area that the MacArthur ban applies, whereas the MacArthur passes residential zoning for most of its length inside the city. 'Trucks have used the Nimitz 'ever since it was built," Sutter said, "but they have never used the MacArthur nor did they use MacArthur Boulevard, whose route the freeway follows, even though the boulevard, too, was an interstate highway. "Now the trucks are asking for special privileges to use a route they have never had." There are many more schools, churches and hospi on trucks. This doesn't give trucks any special privileges, but it does give them the right to use it legitimately." And forcing trucks to take longer route is reflected in prices of goods transported by trucks, he said.

It is "discriminatory against the people who live near the Nimitz Freeway or who must use it," he said. "Are the senses of those living along the MacArthur Freeway more acute than those living along all the other freeways in It is a "dangerous precedent" that would "deny the use of any highway to legitimate users. If any group succeeds in diverting traffic from their area, there is nothing to prevent others from doing the same thing until every mile of U.S. highways is closed to trucks." It is "uneconomic not to use such a freeway for the use' it was intended," he said. "One third of the cost of this freeway was paid for by taxes wwuu ik inucn greater as me trucks "grind up the hills through several gear changes and sputter down the other side." And, he said, "How econom-, ical will the extra costs of maintenance and repairs be, once we open the highway to; the pounding of constant use by heavy trucks?" Does the MacArthur Freeway trucking ban discriminate against trucks and people, or would lifting the ban discriminate against cars and people? Both views were expressed during a panel discussion on the truck ban at last night's Oakland Town Meeting at the Main Library.

Keeping trucks off the Mac-Arthur not only discriminates against the trucks, according to two of the speakers, but it also' discriminates against the people who live along the Nimitz Freeway, the principal alternate route for trucks banned from the MacArthur. But permitting trucks to use the MacArthur, their adversary said, would, disaiminate against the people who live along its route and the cars that use it. Speakers against the ban were Richard H. Zeller, assistant manager director of the California Trucking Association, and Earl E. Sommer-sett, comptroller of the American Rubber Manufacturing Company, Emeryville, and a resident of San Leandro.

Favoring the ban were Oakland Vice Mayor Paul A. Brom and John H. Sutter, chairman of the Citizens Against Trucks on MacArthur Freeway. A fifth speaker was Dr. A.

The announcement was made jointly by John F. Wight, administrator of Herrick Memorial, and Robert L. Montgomery, administrator of Alta Bates. Both hospitals cited large fi narirtal losses, a decline in the gomery, "will allow the ob-stetricaj service at Alta Bates to operate more nearly at an optimum, while providing additional bed space at Herrick for medical-surgical patients.
