Nixon Eases Oil Imports WASHINGTON (AI>) - President Nixon has moved to bolster the nation's strained fuel supplies by permitting importers to start using their 1973 oil allocations immediately and by lifting import restrictions on Virgin Islands petroleum products. The twin actions announced Monday by the White House are intended, a spokesman said, to "buttress recent alerts ... to all refiners on the need to increase, wherever possible their heating oil production." Nixon's proclamation authorized the Secretary of the Interior to hand out the 1973 petro­ leum allocations immediately, based on the 1972 allocations. This means, said a spokesman for the Office of Emergen- Prepa redness, that impor- will be allowed to bring in at least as much oil and related products next year as they did this year. The OEP spokesman said the interim 1973 allocations can be immediately. The govern- wants importers to "move out right away" to bolster fuel supplies as winter arrives, he said. Nixon's proclamation also removed the 15,000-barrel a day restriction on shipments to the c> ters used ment mainland of petroleum products refined in the Virgin Islands. The document authorized the Secretary of the Interior to permit additional imports from the Virgin Islands, and officials estimated that upwards of 35,000 barrels a day in additional petroleum products could be shipped to the mainland from the island territory. The actions were necessary, an administration official said, because a siege of extremely cold weather had left the fuel situation "very tight" in large sections of the country, especially the Midwest. BY CHUCK OSTHEIMER Fourth grade students at Roosevelt Elementary School spent a day in career education recently when opening a popcorn business at the school. The project, planned in advance, forced the students to figure the cost of obtaining all supplies necessary for the finished product, then calculate the cost of each bag in order to make a profit. Students chose the name of Peter Piper Popcorn Company for their business. The popcorn was acquired from a local farmer, then committees were set up for getting equipment, advertise the merchandise, purchase the necessary oil and salt, popping the corn, sacking and salting the corn, selling the corn both from booths and vendors, and finally cleanup. "The students worked in shifts preparing the popcorn for sale," Roosevelt Principal Glen Lohman said, "they had vendors and money changers go around to each room selling the popcorn." The final result showed a net profit of $60 for the fourth grade students, who plan to use the money for stocking of aquariums to be located in the fourth grade homerooms. "Career education is an addition to the curriculum being used in today's schools," Lohman said, "but we are thinking of it more as career awareness, making the students aware of different types of careers rather than those of their parents or teachers." Lohman also said the school had been doing similar things in the past. Truman's Kidneys Failing KANSAS CITY (AP) - Former President Harry S. Truman remained in very serious condition today but a hospital spokesman said ho seemed more alert after spending a restful night. John Dreves, hospital spokes- . man, said Truman "follows peoples' movement with his eyes, but has not spoken to them." Kidney output had increased and during the past 24 hours it was 490 cubic centimeters, which Dreves described as "a favorable sign." However, the spokesman added the kidney output still was inadequate. Truman's vital signs at 9 a.m. EST were blood pressure 140-60, pulse 80, respiration 24 and temperature 97 degrees. The spokesman said Truman continues to receive "adequate nutrition even though protein remains curtailed. He has lost some weight." Dreves could not elaborate on the weight situation, saying he did not know what Truman weighed when he was admitted to the hospital Dec. 5 and that weight generally had not been discussed by Truman's doctors. Although semiconscious, the former president was alert enough Monday to utter a few words, he was in no pain and his condition has not changed in several days. Doctors said late Monday night that the 88-year-old Truman's kidneys are less than 10 per cent effective—a level the doctors call critical with reference only to the kidney function. A spokesman at Research Hospital and Medical Center, where Truman was admitted two weeks ago, quoted doctors as saying "above 10 per cent, they can keep people functioning." Truman's liquid intake has been restricted to 1,000 cubic centimeters — about a quart — a day to prevent fluid buildup. "Fluid in the entire body is related to the kidney function. If the kidney doesn't work, fluid collects in the lungs, the blood plasma, everywhere," the spokesman said. Truman also has difficulty in absorbing the protein from his liquid tube feeding. Newsmen asked if this problem, coupled with the reduced amount of protein he is being given, would result in inadequate nourishment. John Dreves, the hospital spokesman, said he could not answer the question. Dreves was asked what, with complications of heart, lungs and kidneys, is keeping Truman alive. "It's President Truman, I guess. Even the doctors can't answer that," he said.
