Qalesbuf^ l^ster'Maik OALESBURO, ILL., WED., APRIL 18, ifttS SfiSC. 5 PAGfiJl Gasoline Shortage Disables Dealers Diminishing suffplies o( gasoline Hre shutting down some independent dealers-a threat to businesses using automotive transportation and to private car owners who notiftally take to the opeh' road in droves during spring and summer. Rationing so far has been spotty, arising, aceot 'ding to some retailers, from the desire of major oil companies to hoard their supplies for their own outlets. In Anniston, Ala., A. P. Hubbard, president of Hubbard 011 Co., said Tuesday that six of his 20 service stations have closed because they have no gasoline. He expected the rest of his stations to exhaust their supply of gasoline within a weelc and close, unless a new source is found. Hubbard said he ha^s bought gasoline from Crown Central Petroleum Corp. for more than 12 years, but less than two weeks ago the firm notified him it would supply no more gasoline after April 15. "They've got gasoline but they're going to keep it to supply their big, elegant stations, as they put it," he said. Hubbard was in the same bind as Roy Pollard, president of "Save-X," an independent company in southwest Virginia. Pollard also put at least part of the blame on the major distributors. Pollard, who closed all but two of his 16 stations last week, said "We believe there is a shortage of gas but we don't believe that the available supplies are being equitably distributed between' the major od companies and the independents;" Even some fnuhicipalities were faced with the prospect of shortages neccessary for its civil functions. For example, Detroit's gasoline contract with Standard, Gulf and Boron for its vehicles, which runs out at the end of this month, shows no immediate prospects of renewal. The city in the past has asked for bids containing 12-mDnth duration clauses and minimum stipulations. This year, because of the lack of bids, city purchasing director Arthur Cope said the minimum and duration requirements have been dropped. Robert Atkins of the Barge- way Oil Co., in Glen Ellyn, a suburb of Chicago, said his company had to stop selling gasoline to nine independent stations and had closed down one of its own. Another jobber said major- brand outlets were now getting about the same monthly amount of gasoline they received last year but had no assurance there would be deliveries beyond April. Texaco said about 200 of the 1,000 stations it has in the Los Angeles area have been affected by gas rationing, a situation the company said it has no control over since the stations are serviced by distributors. Evolution Theory Battle Revived NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) The Tennessee Senate scheduled a vote today on legisla* tion that would pr(*ibit the teaching of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution as fact. John Scopes tried to teach that theory in 1923 and was put on trial in Dayton, Tenn., under an old state law prohibiting the teacWng of the theory that man evolved from lower systems of life. A group of professors issued a statement Tuesday calling the present bill "utterly repugnant to the American idea of democracy." The measure would require I see. Church Services At New Windsor College will be all textbooks dealing with the origin of man to devote equal space to rival theories, Including the Biblical version in Genesis. Tennessee's original "monkey law," which resulted in Scopes' conviction, was repealed by the legislature in 1967. Scopes' conviction was later overturned on a technicality. The proposed legislation came under fire Tuesday from a group of University of Tennessee professors who have formed a group called the Ad Hoe Committee to Prevent Anti-Evolution Law in Tennes- Oakland, Calif., mayoral candidate Bobby Scale (R) does some last minute campaignuig as he shakes hands with passers-by.

UNIFAX Scale Second in Oakland Election By DIANE CURTIS OAKLAND (UPI) - Mayor John Reading won the most votes when he sought reelection in Tuesday's municipal election but not enough to prevent a runoff against Black Panther Party chairman Bobby Seale, Final but unofficial tabulations of Oakland's 436 precincts showed the retired Republican business man failed by just 84 votes to win a majority of the Galesburg Cigar & Specialty Co.

He did, however, top Seale by more than 34,000 ballots as he sought his third straight four- year term as mayor of California's fifth largest. city. Because he didn't get 51 per cent of the votes, a runoff i)etween the two leading candidates will be held May 15. Reading, 55, polled 55,342 ballots to 21,314 for Seale, 36, co-founder of the militant Blacic Panthers who is making his first bid for public ofice. Of the eight in the race, four were blacl;. This was the first elecliion in which minority groups made up a majority in this industrial city of 362,000 and Seale said he wanted to use the $7,500 a year post as a platform to launch "revolutionaries" who would seek "liberation" across the country through the ballot box. Seale shed his gyns and power diplomacy duruig the campaigning for a stand as a liberal politician advocating better housuig and lighting conditions and special taxes on capital income, stocks and bonds. Panthers concentrated most of their election efforts in areas where the black population was the heaviest, providing an automobile fleet to transport voters to the polls. Now\ouKnow... By United Press International The Mississippi River was named by the Ojibwa Indians from two words in their language — mis meaning "great" and sipi meaning "river." Blacks make up 35 per cent of Oakland's population and, with other minority groups, outnumber whites. Seale conducted the most visible campaign, touring the city in motorcades, meeting merchants and shoppers. He visited city council meetings and addressed civic groups. His stand was a far cry from the time he was bound and gagged in court during the Chicago Seven riot conspiracy trials following the 1968 Democratic National Convention. That case against him was dropped. He later was accused of ordering a fellow Panther killed in New Haven, Conn., but that trial ended in a hung jury.
