WASHINGTON (UPI) - The government has proposed stiff restrictions on driving, parking and in some oases gasoline consumption in 11 more urban areas to dean up their air. The areas are Saft Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento, indio and the Sah Joaquin Valley, Calif.; Salt Lake City, Utah; Seattle and Spokane, Wash.; Chicago, nt; Phoenix-Tucson, Ariz,, end Fairbanks, Alaska. State and local authorities now have 60 days to reply. Then the Environmental Protection Agency (BPA), which : Curb Driving in Pollution Attack Saturday,, July LJ973 y 9 announced the restrictions Friday, could require the localities to put them into effect, in some cases beginning as early as a year from now. In a related action, EP^ Friday ordered the nation's airplane manufacturers to begin by 1979 making airplane engines which meet standards for reduced air pollution. It proposed retro-fitting of pre- 1979 engines with anti-pollution devices by 1983. Controls are Similar The new urban traffic controls were similar to ones announced three weeks ago for New York, Los Angeles and 17 other urban areas. Friday's proposals covered plans submitted td EPA by the states but which EPA found inadequate. The proposed new restrictions are tailored to specific areas and include limiting deliveries of gasoline to service stations, banning downtown on-street parking, requiring development of bus lanes to speed mass commuting, in one case a computer to arrange car pools and in three cities a system of colored windshield stickers to HOUR SPECIAL CLEARANCE An affiliated store has lost its warehouse.

Cofliresi authorised the program last year in the Clean Aif Act, which sets standards for air quality in 1975. Even with the traffic restriction?, SPA said Friday that many of the areas involved cannot meet the air quality standards by that time and it gave several of them extensions —two years for the California areas, Fairbanks and Phoenix- Tucson; and one year for Salt Lake City. They will still have to go ahead with traffic controls when they are finally approved. Some Federal Aid States and localities would pay for the controls, with some federal aid. Friday's proposals were: Salt Lake City: Beginning July 1, 1974, deliveries of gasoline to service stations would be limited to 1973 levels At later dates construction of new parking facilities would be banned; exclusive lanes would be developed for buses and car pools; on-street parking would be prohibited; a new inspection program would be required to keep car exhaust levels down. Phoenix-Tucson: Same limit on gasoline deliveries, beginning next July 1. Ban on construction of new parking facilities and a 20 per cent cut in parking spaces. Motorcycle registration. A computer system to match up car pool applicants. Evaporation controls on bulk gasoline storage I tanks. Exclusive bus and car pool lanes. Car inspection. Chicago: Vehicle inspection and maintenance program. Ban on construction of new parking facilities. Seattle and Spokane: Vehicle inspection and maintenance program. Ban on new parking facilities. A system of colored stickers to determine which ears can drive downtown. (The stickers would be given out at random. On days when the air pollution forecast is bad, the city could ban red sticker cars, which would cut traffic 10 per cent; or it could ban two colors, which would mean a 20 per cent cut, etc.) Fairbanks: Motorists would be forbidden to let their vehicles idle more than five minutes. To reduce warm-up running times, parking facilities built after Oct. 1, 1974, would have to either be heated or be equipped with engine- warming devices. San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley: Gasoline deliveries limited to 1973 amounts after next July il. Inspection. Lanes for buses and car pools. A ban on construction of new parking facilities and a 20 per cent reduction in parking spaces by April 30, 1975. A ban on use of two-stroke engine motorcycles during daylight hours from May through October. (No separate plan was announced for Indio. EPA said it would be covered by the Los Angeles plan announced earlier,) In The Armed Forces Airman AMen V. Calmer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alden L.

Coal Mine Deaths Lowest During Any 6-Month Span WASHINGTON (UPI) - Coal mining fatalities totaled 53 nationwide during the first half of 1973 ->- a 36.9 per cent drop from the same months last year, the Bureau of Mines has revealed. The number of deaths was a record low for any six - month period. Herschel H. Potter, chief of the Coal Mine Safety Division, attributed the sharp decline primarily to stepped - up efforts to curb roof fall and haulage accidents, the two major causes of mining fatalities. On a state - by • state basis, Pennsylvania showed the greatest decline, dropping from 14 fatalities during the January- June 1972 period to six fatalities $0 far this year. Comparing the fatalities in the first six months of each year, Illinois showed a drop from eight deaths to two; Ohio from six to one; Kentucky from 18 to 14, and West Virginia from 20 to 16. Other 1973 fatalities, with the 1972 six - month figure in parentheses, were: Virginia 7 (8); Indiana 2 (0); Utah 2 (0); Alabama 2 (4); New Mexico 1 (0); Tennessee 0 (2); Colorado 0 (2) and Wyoming 0 (1). For the entire year of 1972, there were 156 fatalities, compared to 181 in 1971, and 260 in 1970. Recover Body MARION, 111.
