Mar SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - Illinois 1974 license plates will be white with mdnxta figures and letters. In 1975 they will be yellow with black markings, honoring the anniversary of the state's largest private employer. In 1976, the state's school fchildren may pick the combination. Secretary of State Michael Howlett, who has control of such things, discussed the subject of license plates at a luncheon Thursday marking the end of his first six months in office. HE SAID PREPRINTED applications for renewal of 1973 plates already are being mailed. Those forms allow persons holding 1973 plates to keep their license numbers for another year, providing they return the application to Howlett's office by the deadline. The following year, Howlett said, the plates will honor the anniversary of the founding of the Caterpillar Tractor Co.-in Peoria. He said the firm will mark its 75th anniversary that year and is the state's largest employer. A Caterpillar spokesman said he had heard such a plan was in the works but the firm "didn't know it had t)66n Approved." HE SAID THE FIRM will mark its 50th birthday in 1975, rather than the 75th, and that "we are told" the company is the state's largest private employer. Howlett said he is considering having a contest among the state's school children to design plates honoring the ynited States bicentennial celebration in 1976. Senate To Study Grain Elevator Problems 4 SPRINGFIELD—An Illinois Senate subcommittee will hold hearings next month to determine possible * changes in the Illinois Grain Dealers Act. % Sen. Clifford B. Latherow, chairman of the Senate Com- \mittee on Agriculture, Conservation and Ecology, said the hearings are aimed at pinpointing elevator operators 9 problems and legislative solutions. * ; ? > ; The 5-member subcommittee will hold one hearing at the Macomb Holiday Inn Sept. 13 at 9 a. m. LATHEROW SAID closing of Illinois grain elevators is becoming a serious problem. "The loss of these elevators is causing a severe economic dilemma for rural residents," he said. "The ability of fanners to market their grain is decreased; those holding a financial interest in elevators lose their investments, arid workers are thrown out of jobs," Latherow commented. "By holding public hearings, we hope to gather sufficient information to permit us to meet this situation head-on through passage of new legislation geared at keeping elevators financially solvent." Other members of the committee include Sens. Tom Merritt, R-Hoopeston, John K. Knuppel, D-Virginia, Roger Sommer. R-Morton. and Donald Wooten. D-Rock Island. Gas Dealers Will Defy Court, Won't Cut Profit CHICAGO (UPI) - An official of the Indiana and Illinois Gas Dealers Association said Thursday thousands of retail ga&oline dealers will not cut back profit margins Aug. 12, in defiance of a federal court order. Robert Jacobs, executive director of the Indiana association and treasurer of the Illinois group, said. "It is an impossible situation and we will defy this government order if it is allowed to stand. If we followed it, we would go bankrupt." * JACOBS SAID he expects 22,000 Chicago area dealers to join with the 6,000 members of the two organizations in refusing to make the cutbacks. He said under the federal order, retailers throughout the nation must cut their profit margin on Aug. 12 back to the level of Jen. 10. Jacobs aid the Jan. 10 level is usually low because area stations were undercutting each other's prices during a gas war. , The overage retail gasoline dealer now makes a % to % cent net profit on each gallon of gasoline sold, Jacobs said. But during the gas war, he said, the average dealer was losing % to 1.8 cents a gallon. JACOBS ESTIMATED that 70 per cent of the nation's urban retail gas stations were involved in gas wars in January. He said all of them have complained to the council, but there has been no indication that the order will be lifted. Jacobs said it would be impossible for most stations to stay in business if the Cost of Living Council enforces the phase 4 directive ordering the cutback to the Jan. 10 level.
