''Expensive, inefficient, unreliable and unnecessary," claim the critics of the way Detroit proposes to meet the final and most drastic automobile emission control standards due to be required on 1975 and 1976 models, which will bring pollutant levels 90 per cent below those of 1970. Heart of the controversy are catalysts which convert exhausts into harmless gasses using precious metals such at platinum and paladium. Added cost of the catalysts to a new-car buyer is placed at $275 upwards, exclusive of manufacturer's and dealer's markups, maintenance costs and cost of additional fuel consumed. Because other pollution-control systems or methods may be simpler and superior to the catalysts, the automakers are asking the government to postpone the 1975 standards by at least a year. (The 1975 system differs from 1976 in not requiring the nitrogen oxide catalysts shown directly behind the engine in the above drawing,) NEA Coal Galled Key to WASHINGTON (UPI) Dixy Lee Ray, chairman of the Atomic Enengy Commission, told,the coal industry Monday transition from reliance on oil and natural gas to wider and better use of coal will be the major energy [requirement of this century. She also told the opening session of the convention of the National Coal Association a trend toward more imported oil MOONLIGHT Platte*.

Imports, Inevitable "For now and the immediate future, major imports seem inevitable/' Dr. Ray said, adding, "Domestic- consumption of petroleum is outstripping production and there is an enormous investment in equipment for utilizing oil that prevents rapid massive changes in the kinds of fuel that are used." She noted it is imperative a "wider and more intelligent" use of coal and nuclear energy be established. The key to the energy problem^ she said, is the availability of abundant, low-cost, domestically produced energy such as coal "which has a potential right now for satisfying virtually all of today's uses." Coal Has Problems But, she noted that coal, too, has it's problems. She explained none of the early coal conversion processes, such as coal oil, nor coal gas, are competitive with petroleum products at today's prices. However, she said that reliable processes for "economically" converting coal to clean, solid liquid and gaseous fuels could be devised through research and development. She also cited restrictions on the use of high sulfur coals, tough mine safety and land reclamation laws, and problems in mining technology. "At a time when we should be rapidly expanding coal production throughout the nation, we are faced with a reduction in coal production because direct burning of high sulfur eastern coal is prohibited. These paradoxes must be resolved," she said. Stevenson Critical Sen. Adlai Stevenson, D-Ill., said the Nixon administration's lack of commitment to a national energy policy is demonstrated by the difference in 1974 budget figures for coal and Problem atomic energy research. "The 1974 budget figures of $51.3 million for the Office of Coal Research exceeds the 1973 budget figure by only $8.9 million—about enough to keep up with inflation," he said in prepared remarks. Stevenson said by contrast administration will spend $563 million on atomic energy research and development in fiscal 1974 which he pointed out is an increase of $86.4 million over the previous year. "The administration has no rational energy policy. The budget of the Office of the Coal Research is far out of line witl any rational energy priority." the over Ford Club Meets The Early Ford V-8 Club of America, Central Illinois Regional Group, will hold its monthly meeting June 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Lake View Center, Peoria.
