The association protests that the government's Phase IV regulations, restricting its members to a 7 -cent margin per gallon of gasoline, and compelling them to roll back gross profit margins to levels in effect Jan. 10 after Aug. 19, are unfair and favor the major oil company outlets. "We have ordered from our printer 10,000 signs saying 'This Station Closed by Government Bungling," said the association treasurer, Robert Jacobs. He also is executive director of the Indiana Gasoline Dealers Association, and said there were indications it would follow suit in declaring a lockout. Dates were not set, but the public would be given warning, he said. Directors voted to picket the U.S. Courthouse in Chicago, and to go into federal court here early next week, seeking to enjoin enforcement of the Phase IV regulations. "We believe our call for a dealers' lockout will be 75 to 90 per cent effective," said Jacobs. Most of the membership of the Illinois association is in the Chicago area, he said, and it represents more than 60 per cent of the stations. Nonmembers probably will cooperate, he predicted. "We are out to show the government they can't get away with this kind of activity," said oil was a major the Nixon cam- By FRANCES DRAKE Look in the section In which and is, your birthday comes find what your outlook according to the stars.

While excuses offered to callers nay vary to some degree, still their frequent inability to reach the elusive Mr. Parker remains the same: He is not to Ms office.

The taxpayers of District 205 provide the superintendent with an annual salary of nearly $30,MB in exchange for his services. It Is la my oponion somewhat ludicrous to expect a man who does not reside within the school district—nor even within the state— to operate as head of the district. It Is stil more ludicrous to pay him. I question his ability to operate with any degree of efficiency as superintendent of the Galesburg school system.

Barney Parker, District 205's superintendent, has completed his on-campus work toward his doctorate at the University of Missouri at Columbia. While he still has to complete his dissertation—which requires no time in class—it is reasonable to expect that his advanced degree will be conferred within the next year. The superintendent said he made no pretense about what he was doing and worked toward the degree with the encouragement of the District 205 Board of Education. He took his 4 -week vacation period plus an additional 2% weeks granted by the board to complete his classwork for the degree. BUSHNELL ^ Final plans will be made for a September meeting, when Rep.

Jacobs said that if the three- day lockout was not effective in presenting the independent dealers' case for relief, it could be followed by a weeklong shutdown. "What we are preaching now is massive resistance," Jacobs said. "If the government refuses to be reasonable and honorable, we will resist." "This administration doesn't give a tinker's d&mn about the little businessman," Jacobs first move.
