Different areas of the country will experience different degrees of shortage this summer. Just as they are now. From mild to fairly severe. So, depending on where you are at any given time on your vacation, you won't know what the situation is up the road. Some stations may have all the gasoline you can take on. Others may be limiting the number of gallons they will sell to each motorist And still others may be out completely. Some stations may close early to stretch their supply—or not open at all on some days. Others will be running at their normal hours. We're producing more gasoline than ever before but there's just not enough to go around. So w$ are allocating our supply to our dealers on a monthly basis as fairly aswe'knowhow. We will be delivering gasoline to our dealers all summer long but to stretch their supply, they may find that some of the above measures are necessary. But all this doesn't mean the situation is so unpredictable that you should give up your trip. We do urge you to exercise a little consideration when you choose a vacation spot though. And a little care in getting there. Here are some tips we suggest: Fill your tank in the morning. That's when stations are most likely to have gasoline. Some stations will sell only so many gallons per day, and then close early. Also try to be off the road early. You don't want to be on the road late at night if the stations in that area have shortened their hours. Think about keeping your tank at least one-quarter full. That way, you'll have a reserve in case you come across a station that can't supply you. There are also many things you can do to conserve gasoline along the way, and get more miles to the gallon. Make sure your car is in tune before you leave. A tuned car will get about 10% better gas mileage than one that is out of tune. High-speed driving is hard on mileage, so slow down. If you drive 50 mph instead of 60 mph, you can save about one gallon in ten. Try to maintain a steady speed. You'll get better mileage than if you constantly speed up and slowdown. For example, passing a line of cars on a two-lane highway may get you there a little sooner, but the extra acceleration means your car is going to gulp a lot more gasoline. If you tow a boat or trailer, uphill climbs cut into your gas mileage heavily. Build up your speed before you reach the hill, so your engine doesn't have to work as hard on the way up. Use your air conditioner sparingly. When it's running, you get less mileage per gallon. All of us at Standard Oil hope these tips will be helpful to you this summer. And that your vacation is an enjoyable one. @ Standard Oil Division of Amoco Oil Company reptiles. Moore is a new type of Bond, playing the role with a wry smile that says "I don't believe it either — but it's a great sight gag." The plot concerns an island of opium being grown to produce [enough heroin to feed several million junkies. Bond's job is to destroy the crop and devious ringleader. His love interest is a [Tarot fortuneteller with weird eye make-up. High point of the 'film is a chase — as usual. This |time it's molorboats and a red­ necked Louisiana sheriff. Rated PG, at the Orpheum. Same Old Story "Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid" deals with the same old story of how Pal Garrett shot his friend, Billy the Kid, but, under the direction of Sam Peck- inpah the dry plot is transformed into a beautiful, exciting film. Peckinpah turns the two friends into touchy antagonists who test each other with every meeting. Billy is played by Kris Kristofferson, while Garrett is portrayed by film veteran, James Coburn. The two performances, Peckinpah's direction, plus good music by Bob Dylan (who also (makes his screen debut in this, picture) gives the whole film an eerie realism that makes a good movie. At Cinema I, rated R. Flipped "The Poseidon Adventure" •won the Academy Award Oscar -for special effects and it was •well deserved. If you have ever 'wondered how it felt to be in a ship flipped over by a tidal wave—doesn't everybody?— ifobs is the film to see. This film contains an unusually strong cast with such notables as Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Jack Albertson and an exceptional performance by Shelly Winters. Second feature, The Hot Rock, is a Robert Redford crime comedy. At the Galesburg Drive-in, both rated PG. "The Emperor of the North Pole" is set during the Depression, and the film deals with a train-hopping hobo, Lee Marvin, and a mean conductor, Ernest Borgnine, who each try to beat the other's braiins out in a very sadistic climax. Without the acting talent of Marvin and Borgnine, the film's plot •would be a dull, uninteresting story. It is another case where pure acting ability has saved the day and the picture. Now playing at the West, rated PG. She says she will take legal' action against the colonel who accused her husband of collaborating with his North Vietnamese captors. Sandra Kavanaugh, pregnant with her second child, said Thursday she believed the charges, filed against Kavanaugh, 24, and seven other POWs, sent her husband over the edge. "He went to Vietnam and the North Vietnamese kept him alive for five years. Then he came back to America and his own people killed him," she said, looking exhausted at a hastily arranged news conference at the home of her sister- in-law. The former prisoner's death followed by several weeks the suicide of another POW, Air Force Capt. Edward Allan Brudno, who took an overdose of barbiturates in Harrison, N.Y. after being in a North Vietnamese camp for eight years. Mrs. Kavanaugh said she hoped the government would now drop the charges against the other seven brought earlier this month by Col. Theodore Guy, who was a high-ranking officer in their Hanoi prison camp. She and her stepfather were sitting in the living room of his home Wednesday when they heard a shot. She ran into the next room and found her husband lying on the floor, a single bullet through his temple and a .25 caliber pistol lying underneath his body. A doctor who examined Kavanaugh the morning of his death said he seemed "pretty depressed," and he reportedly had told friends days before "You won't see me again." Coroner's officials said they thought it was a suicide but Adams County District Attorney Guy Marks said Kavanaugh could have been killed trying to fix a jammed pistol. "I blame Col. Guy and the Pentagon for his death," said Mrs. Kavanaugh, who has a five-year-old daughter and is expecting a second child in January. "Without their insistent pursuing of these fictitious charges, my husband iwould be here today. "I do not intend to let this end with his death. 1 plan to start legal action against Col. Guy and others in the military for causing the death of my husband." She said her husband was to have returned to the base at Pendleton, Calif., today after a 30-day convalescent leave. She said he was worried about receiving fair treatment there because of the accusations against him. Dr. John Bolin, who examined Kavanaugh Wednesday, said the sergeant was afraid the Marines were going to hold up his discharge until the investigation initiated by Guy was completed.
