Owens: Boston racial tension nearing fhaf of 1973 when woman was burned u Council probes coal prices at Tsongas request FHOM THE SUN'S WASHINGTON BUREAU .. WASHINGTON The Council an Wage and ' Price Stability has lanched - an investigation into coal prices at the request of Rep. Paul E. Tsongas. Albert Rees, council director, notified Tsongas of the start of the probe by letter yesterday. "The price of bituminous coal . , . has risen nearly SO per cent over the past two years. After careful consideration of Ihe questions and comments on coal prices, and your, specif ic request that we consider a coal price investigation, we aiiree that it is a subject that the council staff should analyze." Tsongas applauded the investigation because coal price increases which began to rise when the price of oil began to rocket during the Arab oil embargo, are reflected in consumer ulilit.y bills. Electric companies now use coal to generate electricity instead of oil. "These coal eomDanics. manv owned bv - manor oil companies have been charging exorbitant prices despite relatively small production cost' increases," Tsongas said. Coal prices to utilities have increased nearly 100 per cent in the past two years while company production costs have increased, by only V!3 per cent. "I would hope that this investigation would determine the reasons for price hikes and recom - merul to the President that action be taken to guard against unjustified charges to utilities and consumers." Tsongas added. Disasters kill 19 in two South African mines JOHANNESBURG (Reuler) Nineteen miners are now known lo have died in two gold mine disasters near here yesterday.

"Tin? amendment only clarifies he law." he said.
