litHuj, 4 V- it 'k if if it it if ic it it i I I Bam On 4 Qkallemged. i I i i i I ii ATLANTIC CITY lUPI) The American Civil Liberties Union is preparing to challenge dress code ordinances In four shore towns. Including a Cape May law barring males from wearing skin-tight pants." The ACLU says it will be looking for a test-case to seek an injuction against enforcement of the laws. ACLU local head, Jack Barense, said the organization also would ask a Superior Court Judge to overturn the ordinances. But Barense said the ACLU wants an In junction to take effect as soon as because the Superior Court litigation might take up to six months Barense said the ACLU has notified the city of Wildwood, which enacted its dress code last Tuesday, that it plans to file suit within two weeks.

He said that jf Ocean City, Cape May and North Wildwood failed to rescind their dress codes In two they also would be included in the suit. On Tuesday, Wildwood enacted the same dress code that was taken of the books last winter after the ACLU filed suit. 1 The law says that in all pubic places, except for the beach, people over 12 years old are prohibited from wearing "bathing suits or other scanty attire unless they are clothed with a cloak or other suitable outer garment extending from the neck or the top of the shoulders to within 10 inches above the knee, which cloak outer garment shall be fastened with buttons, snaps, zippers, lacing, frogs or other suitable fasteners Cape May, a quiet community which has carefully cultivated its Victorian image, has a dress code to match. The 1972 law prohibits males over 12 years old from wearing "skin-tight, formfitting bikln-type shorts, slacks or bathing attire on beaches, boardwalk, promenade or any public place or quasi-public place in the city. The Ocean City law enacted in 1944 stipulates that all persons keep their torsos covered, including the front-rib area.

The ACLU said it has no quarrel with laws requiring the wearing of shoes on Boardwalks because of the danger of splinters and other foot-related discomforts.

a. a -v a $100 Special Merit Award finalist in color shots $1,500 winner in 1935 people are ducking Pennsylvanias nine-cent a gallon diesel fuel tax At a news conference Friday, Lopus announced charges had been filed against seven suspected violators In six counties and displayed rough photographs of some of the ruses employed He said the alleged violations involved sale of untaxed.home heating oil for diesel truck and automobile use, with some using concealed pumps and another making truck-to-truck deliveries. In some cases alleged violators collected the nine-cent tax but did not report itio the state Lopus said the seven accused firms accounted for an estimated $30,000 loss in state liquid fuel tax revenues The charges filed against them stemmed from a citizen complaint and work by bureau personnel "We believe violations are widespread, Lopus said, "and we are asking legislative approval for the investigative power and tools to enforce the law. Although the vast majority of taxpayers comply with the law, we believe the bureau's new enforcement plans can go a long way toward eliminating the flagrant violations weve uncovered The states Liquid Fuels Tax Bureau collects approximately $500 million annually in gasoline, diesel and motor carrier road taxes and Lopus predicted enforcement oj the diesel oil tax can add $10 million a year to state revenues. Because the Liquid Fuels Tax Bureau, now headed by David Molek.

Lewistown, currently has limited enforcement powers, the state's charges against most of the seven firms took the form of private criminal complaints, approved by local district attorneys. Lopus identified the seven as Everlast Burial Vaults, Northampton Industrial Park, Ivyland, Bucks Delta Excavating Trucking Co Inc State College, Centre County, engaged at a Johnstown Job site: Mid-State Energy Houtzdale, Clearield County. Modern Gas Sales, Avoca RD 2. Luzerne County: Bowman Petroleum. Tunkhan-nock RD 4 and Lott Service Station, Tunkhannock Route 6, both Wyoming County, and Francis D.

ODonnell, Enola, Cumberland County. The ODonnell firm was charged with 20 violations of the Fuel Use Tax Act consisting of filing false or fraudulent tax reports and failing to turn fuel use taxes over to the state for 20 months. Lopus said each count is punishable, on conviction, by a fine of from $250 to $1,000 or up to 12 months Imprisonment, or both. The six other firms are charged with summary offenses, punishable on conviction of $100 fines or 30 days' Imprisonment or both. Lopus also announced plan's to merge many of the functions of the Liquid Fuels Tax and Cigarette Tax bureaus, headquartered at Lewistown, to effect a 40 percent saving in space.
