Main Ph. 343-1516 joined Ligon in saying that the allocation program would be mad? mandatory if necessary, but that it appeared the voluntary system would succeed in getting supplies to vital industries like agriculture. Sen. Oarl T. Curtis, R-Neb., disagreed. Curtis told the House committee he doubted the vol untary system would be able to avoid farm-crippling fuel shortages. And Chairman W.R Poage, D-Tex., of the House panel agreed later he has "serious doubts" the voluntary system will work. Wakefield said it currently appears total U.S. gasoline supplies this 9urraner will run 1 to 2 per cent below demand. But shortages will not be spread evenly across the nation and will probably be worse in the Midwest, he said. He told a newsman that "priority" uses like farm equipment will be kept supplied by the allocation plan, but that pleasure drivers may be unable to get all the gas they want in shortage areas. Diesel Shortage Unlikely Wakefield also reported that: —There is not likely to be any shortage of diesel fuel for farm tractors this summer. —Despite a tight natural gas supply situation, there will not be any shortage for fertilizer manufacture this year. —Propane gas supplies for crop drying this fall probably will be adequate if we have a ; normal winter, but there could be shortages if we get an early, I cold winter. day morning, coffee shop, Mrs. Fern Webb and Mrs. Karen Donahue; Thursday afternoon, coffee shop, Mrs. Ruth Turnbull; morning, gift shop, Mrs. Joanne Rhodes; afternoon, gift shop, Mrs. Edna Cooper; morning, mail and flowers, Mrs. Frances Kikendall; children's services, Mrs. Betty Theobald; afternoon, in* formation, Mrs. Lula Black; Evening, information, Mrs. Velrrta Miller; paper and errands, Mrs. Alice Graber; Friday morning, coffee shop, Mrs. Emma Dimmitt and Mrs. LaVeta Grimm; afternoon, coffee shop, Mrs. Georgia Crowl; afternoon, gift shop, Mrs. Doris Scholes; afternoon, information desk, Mrs. Fern Lantz, and papers and errands, Mrs. Vera Burke.

(UPt) A few panes of glass rattled, some rocks slid from their moorings and blocked a road leading to Ground JJero. Scientific instruments recorded an earthquake of medium inten sity. But for the most part, Project Rio Blanco — the explosion Thursday of three hydrogen bombs equal to 90,000 tons of TNT—produced little more than a tiny puff of dust, There was no great tremor, cattle never stopped munching and area homes—reinforced and evacuated ait government expense- were not damaged. "I think you could have sneezed louder than that," said Don Hutchings who owns the Five-Stool Cafe in Rio Blanco, 20 miles from the wellhead. The purpose of the blast is to determine the feasibility of mining (flapped natural gas with nuclear explosions. The reason for using such powerful bombs is that the formations in which the gas is located are so impermeable, only miniscule amounts can be produced by more conventional methods. It will take at least three and possibly 12 months to learn if Thursday's controversial explo sion is a success. If it is, it could lead to many such projects in the Rocky Mountains. Jim Stanko, teacher at Rock School only seven miles away, said the ground movement didn't even knock over the pieces of wood he put up to measure the shock. "It was nothing," he said. The heavy shoring of the 75-1 year-old schoolhouse was un necessary. Field teams checking for damage could find only hairline onacks. "We had a perfect shot," said Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Dixy Ray. "Everything went as expected, We look forward to a great step ahead in our knowledge."' AEC spokesman Henry Vermillion said there was no radioactivity recorded. It was fear of radioactive pollution which sent environ* mentalists to court in an unsuccessful effort to stop the test. They said the blast could contaminate the underground waters feeding the Colorado River, or the pollution could escape from cracks in the ground. Dixon Dies DIXON, 111. (UPI)-Former Lt. Gov. Sherwood Dixon, 76, who served under the late Adlai Stevenson H, died Thursday night.
