I'ap«-4A (;<ircl<>n Ciey Telegram W<-cln«-* ( lny. November Ift. 1977 Memoirs Out: Won't Live in Past No New Gas After Jan. 1? KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Key Missouri and Kansas natural gas distributors supplied by Cities Service Gas Co., have begun moves to end gas hookups for new homes and small businesses after Jan. 1. The moves came after a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rejected appeals Friday by Cities Service, the Gas Service Co., and others to overturn part of an order by the commission's predecessor agency, the Federal Power Commission. The legal battle is part of a lengthy process to provide a new plan on gas hookups for Cities Service, which provides gas for 502 communities in five states. Jerry T. Duggan, Gas Service president, said the uncertainty gives his firm only one choice, "to ask for the authority to refuse new service after Jan. i." That authority would have to come from the Missouri Public Service Commission and the Kansas Corporation Commission. Missouri Public Serivce Co., already has placed a moratorium on new gas hookups for areas it serves. Kansas Public Gas Service Co. Inc., which distributes natural gas in Lawrence, also will place a moratorium on new hookups, a spokesman there said. "We have prepared a letter to builders and developers," said William Salome III, vice president and general manager of the Kansas distributor. "We will not hook up any new meters after Jan. 1. After the first, we will see a marked downturn in construction in Lawrence," he predicted. The distributors are concerned because Cities Service, under tariffs through which the federal government regulates it, is required to impose penalties on its distributors if they use more gas than they are allotted under federal regulations. An FPC order issued last summer would have nearly ended new gas hookups Jan. l with few exceptions. That order was appealed and a series of new hearings were scheduled to run through April. However, the agency warned gas distributors that any order coming out of the new proceedings might be imposed retroactive to Jan. 1. It said distributors who added new customers after that date might be doing so at their own risk. A Window by Other Name Any MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — You probably thought the openings in your house were called windows. Bui the country's energy experts call them "passive solar collectors." And those other items we give pedestrian names like shades, drapes and awnings, are known as "energy management systems." "It's no wonder the American people are confused about energy," said Richard L. McGraw, executive director of the Washington- based Alliance to Save Energy, a volunteer organization. He made his remarks in a luncheon address here last week. "In our zeal to respond to the call for new technology, we have succeeded in dehumanizing energy," McGraw said. The worst new word he's heard come out of the new energy vocabulary, according to McGraw, refers to both doors arid windows. "They're known as 'valves of natural phenomenon.'" STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — In a memoir-addicted society, he adamantly refuses to write his. Rather than ruminate on the days when he strode across the world's stage with the giants of his time, John J. McCloy, 82, would prefer to discuss his Manhattan law practice or tell of the antlered buck he encountered recently in the Connecticut woods. But determinedly modest McCloy — once described by Lyndon Johnson as the "greatest pro-consul in American history" for his work in postwar Germany — is laboring over the writing of a speech, in which he will accept the Statesman- Humanist award from the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies in New York tonight. The two previous winners of the Aspen award were Jean Monnet, first deputy secretary general of the League of Nations, in 1971, and Willy Brandt, former mayor of West Berlin and former chancellor of West Germany, in 1973. In an interview at his rural hideaway, McCloy said he knew both Monnet and Brandt well. "My career is marked not by its height but its length," he insisted, recalling that as a captain in World War I he served with officers who had fought Indians on the American plains. Today he commutes to Manhattan with their grandchildren. "My life span represents 40 percent of the life of this country, which says less about how old I am than about how young America is," McCloy said. Historians are less modest than McCloy, and they trace his imprint on some of the major events of mid-20th century America. As assistant secre- tary of war to Henry Stimson throughout World War II tie helped tap a relatively unknown officer named Dwight Df Eisenhower for command of American forces in Europe. He was also instrumental in promoting the construction of an edifice later known as "McCloy's folly" — the Pentagon. "But we were right about the Pentagon, it still functions well," he said. McCloy's most memorable job, he said, was as U.S. military governor and high commissioner for postwar Germany from 1949 to 1952 "where I tasted the heady wine of total power, a ,. proconsul's power." He remains proud of America's role. "The rebuilding of democratic Europe after the war was a Periclean age of international cooperation. The foundations have held," he said, "despite constant pressure from the east." He added, "I am just back from Europe and I was amazed to see the degree our vigor and our policies are depended upon. They look to us as the defender of the faith, and despite Vietnam and Watergate our prestige is largely unimpaired." CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE WINNERS MOO WINNER JAMS STRICKLAND HOLCOMB, KS.
