Clean Air, Clean Water Aims of New EPA Chief WASHINGTON (UPI) - Russell E. Train, newly nominated to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), says clean air and clean water will be the top two priorities in his new jdb. ' But he warned the nation in a news conference Thursday that it is entering a period when the sacrifices and inconveniences needed to help clean up the environment may not always produce immediate, visible progress. "I do believe there is a questioning of environmental goals," Train said. "We're in a tough period testing the commitment of the American people" on such issues as the energy crisis versus conservation. "The citizen has to be patient and work with and recognize it will be some little while before we see substantial progress," he added. "It's plain that we're going to have to be making changes in the way we do things." He said enforcing the Clean Air Act and the Federal Water Quality Act would be his top two goals at EPA; and he indicated he would resist any weakening of the clean air law which has come under criticism because it is triggering such proposals as cutbacks on commuter traffic and ceilings on gasoline supplies. "I feel that in general the Clean Air "Act is a good act. We're making real progress under the act. That's not to say there may be room for improvement," he added. But anyone proposing changes in the law, he said, will have to'make sure the need 1 for such revisions is "unequivo- cably demonstrated." The EPA has been without an administrator since William D. Ruckelshaus quit to become acting FBI director in a cabinet re-shuffling caused by the Watergate scandal. Ruckelshaus Thursday was appointed ah assistant attorney general.

The change in sports styles affects physical education facilities, and is leading to obsolescence of traditional gyms and old-style stadiums. New sports facilities are for double duty—and for female as well as male use. In a report on the trend, Educational Facilities Laboratories (EFL), said: Roofing Recommended "Whatever use is made of it, the new sports facility should never become one of the traditional temples of sweat operated at enormous cost for the benefit of a few talented people for a short season of the year." P. Richard Theibert, director of athletics and special) assistant to the president of Hofstra University, in the report reviews some of the alternatives. For one, seasonal limitations can be removed by roofing the area. The football stadium, that is. EFL suggests that the stadiums be "deconsecrated" and used for several kinds of games.

Hie Pentagon announced Thursday it would spend $28 million on the program. It acted on a survey which indicated living costs in various locations in Germany ranged between 4 and 30 per cent higher than living costs in the continental United States.. The cost of living payments will depend on the rank of the serviceman and the availability of U.S. support facilities where he is stationed. It was the second major allowance increase "in less than a week for American service- mn stationed in Germany. Last week, the Pentagon boosted housing allowances an average of 25 to 50 per cent because of dollar devaluation. It was estimated this would cost $19 million in the coming year. The increases in costs were expected to give more ammunition to members of Congress, including Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield, who are seeking a 50 per cent reduction in U.S. troop strength abroad. The Pentagon opposes any unilateral troop cuts in Europe, saying this would spoil chances to negotiate a mutual withdrawal of U.S. and Soviet forces. Negotiations on this subject will start Oct. 30.
