ALL EDITIONS I t •; • Phoenix, Sat., June 30, 1^3 the Arizona Republic B*3 County can maintain fuel supply through August The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Friday was informed of arrangements to maintain all county gasoline and diesel fuel needs through Aug. 31. ' The board, meeting to close out fiscal 1972-73 books, ' also was advised that the amount of money carried over from the county's operating departments from the current to the next fiscal year which starts Sunday, will be less than the $5.3 million from the same source at the start of fiscal 1972-73. The current fiscal year ends at midnight tonight, with funds from operating departments reverting to the general fund for fiscal 197374. Budget director William J. Feldmeier informed the board Patrolman Gary Josephson of the Department of Public Safety demonstrates remote control operation Of dust warning signs to the dispatcher operator, Mrs. Fetta Brown, at DPS headquarters in Phoenix. Interstate highway system reported 86 pet. completed .Northern Arizona Bureau FLAGSTAFF —Arizona. has completed 86 per cent of itfc interstate highway system, the State Highway Commission announced Friday. /The five-member commission also reported that the lohg-awaited dust storm warning system is now operating along 81 miles of Interstates 8 and 10 near Casa Grande. State highway director Justin Herman said the actual figure of completed interstate highway now is 1,003 miles- only 265 short of the goal. "Preliminary reports confirm earlier predictions that about half the traffic that formerly used the U.S. 60 or Wickenburg route to Phoenix ndw travel the Brenda Cutoff," Herman said. The $700,000 dust warning system is officially open after nearly 10 months of delay, caused primarily by failure of the radio-controlled system, the department said. In other action, the highway commission awarded $5 million in new road building contracts and heard one member complain of a costly federal "bureaucratic slowdown" on projects. The criticism, raised by commission Vice Chairman Rudy Campbell of Tempe, came during a discussion of projects to complete Interstate 17 from Flagstaff to Phoenix. He noted that the Federal Highway Administration has not yet acted on the Zarie Grey interchange, which snagged construction of the Copper Canyon stretch in the Verde Valley, despite a fa- vorable response at a public hearing last fall and highway commission approval. "I'm very perturbed about the bureaucratic slowdown," he said, calling it "the biggest enemy we have." Campbell said the federal agency, which insists on public input, has a tendency to fail to make a decision and when a decision is made, the project has increased in cost. He said he strongly "opposes bureaucrats sitting on something we need here." Commissioner W'a 11 e r W. Surrett, of Payson, said the interchange is an example of something the communities want, but now the federal government is opposed to giving it to them. Both regional and divisional federal offices have made negative recommendations on the project, it was noted. Highway engineer William N. Price told the commission that five projects remain to complete 1-17, and that bids on two of them — Stoneman Lake north to the Cocohino County line, and from the Sedona interchange to Stoneman Lake — will, be opened next Friday. The three remaining projects are the Copper Canyon and Copper Canyon to Mag- uircville sections in the Verde Valley, and Ash Creek to Seneca Creek. Price said he expects the 'remain! n g projects to be awarded during the next fiscal year, with completion to require two years. Largest of the five projects awarded Friday was for a second unit of reconstructing U.S. 180 in Apaclie County, 18 miles south of Springerville. Peter Kiewit Sons' Co., of Glendale was low bidder at $1,989,423. Other contracts include: -$1,706,254 to W. R. Skousen Contractors Inc. of Mesa for work on a second unit of the Morristown-Lake Pleasant highway in Maricopa County covering 11 miles. -$999,041 .to M.M. Sundt Construction Co. of Tucson for improvements to 22nd Street in Tucson between Alvernon Way and Swan Road. —$196,139 to Sierra Ready Mix and Contracting Co. of Sierra Vista for rejuvenating existing pavement and as- phaltic overlay of eight miles of highway B-10 and state route 186 in Willcox. —$89,233 to Tanner Brothers Contracting Co. Inc of Phoenix for final improvement work at the intersection of University Drive and Price Road in the Tempe area. The commissioners also approved a series of other.bids totaling about 2282,000 for various supplies, equipment and for remodeling of the motor vehicle division office in Tucson. A public hearing was set for the July 13 meeting in Phoenix concerning regulations limiting movement of 14-foot wide mobile homes on their own Wheels on state highways. The commission also approved six rights of-way aqui- sition payments for property in the Papago loop corridor totaling $893,567. The payments were based on acquisition commitments prior to the election and the .land is to be used in construction of Interstate 10, it was noted. at its finest! SPECIAL!

Warnas, county purchasing director, said the county's present supplier, Union Oil Co., will continue to supply gasoline and diesel fuel through Aug. 31. Although the county's current contract with Union Oil expires at 'midnight tonight, he said, Union has agreed to supply 120,000 gallons of gasoline and .40,000 gallons of diesel fuel at prices stated in the expiring contract. Warnas said the agreement is verbal, "but very fortunate and favorable." , Union Oil will provide gasoline on a month-to-month basis after August at higher rates now precluded under the current national price freeze, Warnas said. The company cannot supply diesel fuel after August, he added. Warnas said a local diesel fuel supplier has agreed' to attempt to provide the county with 10,000 gallons of diesel fuel a month, beginning in September. Warnas added that there was no contract with the supplier and the man preferred to remain anonymous. The amount of fuel needed to supply the county's 900 vehicles for a year, Warnas estimated, would total 835,000 gallons of gasoline and 290,000 gallons of diesel fuel. The board was also advised that Oral Tucker, chief assistant in the public defender's office, has resigned that job but will remain with the office as an assistant public de- fender. Succeeding him is Bedford Douglass Jr., now a deputy in the department. Mules outnumbered in mental institutions VICTORIA, British Columbia (AP) — Dr. Ian Kenning, head of the division of psychiatry at the Eric Martin Institute, says women outnumber men in mental institutions but men outnumber women in jails. Kenning says society rules that men must not be sick or weak, so men with emotional problems are less likely to seek psychiatric help. and tend instead to get into trouble with the law. Catholics in America increase by 69,437 ' NEW YORK (UPI) - The U.S. Roman Catholic population is up 69,437 over last year. But the number of Catholic educational institutions and students has declined during the year. This is reported by the Official Catholic Directory for 1973 (Macmillan). There are 11,258 separate Catholic educational institutions in the United States, 455 fewer than last year. The total Catholic population in the United States is 48,460,427. M Tbday Europe- Tomorrow the United States!" -Steel Belted Radials That quote sounds fine coming from a tire. Especially from a steel belted radial tire. Because it's true. Europe now uses almost 100% radial tires and the States are trying to catch up. "Are you guys going to do a whole ad on steel belted radial tires?" you may be asking. "Yes," is the answer. They're the most exciting innovation in the tire industry, so you really should know about them. Especially if you're going to be in the market for tires sometime soon. Steel belted radials are safer than conventional tires, last about twice as long and offer superb handling. Those are the three major reasons they're the top seller in Europe and catching on ,like wildfire in'the United States. Fact is/steel belted radial tires That tire's been accepted beyond the wildest dreams of the industry. And now Michelin is building plants in Canada and plans to open its first U.S. plant in 1975. They just can'f keep up with the demand. just as the first Michelin whitewall lived up to its claims, so does the steel belted radial, but supplies are short. If you're interested in a set, please give us a call, just to check and see if we've got them in your size. Two years ago, we purchased our first Bridgestone steel belted radials, to make sure we'd have an alternate supply, if Michelin couldn't meet the demand. These Bridgestones have passed all the rigorous road and mileage testing with flying colors, so we feel 100% confident recommending them to you. can also increase your gas mileage ' f V'° u ' ve never he ' ircl of up to //%.' Isn't that wild? Especially with gasoline prices almost certain to go upl They accomplish this because they're constructed to have less rolling resistance. This results in a greater free-wheeling effect—and up to 11 % greater gas mileage. Something to consider when you're out shopping for tires. Another thing to consider is this: steel.-belted radials require very little extra material to manufacture, but will last twice as long as conventional bias ply tires. Bridgestone, you should. They're the 8th largest rubber company in the world and produce over 60% of the new and replacement tires used in Japan! It's a large company, folks, with a great reputation! Incidentally, Bridgestone has developed a \v/'c/er steel belted radial with three steel belts, instead of the usual two. We've sold over 10,000 of these Bridgestones since they were introduced two years ago. They're trouble-free, extremely UJV,UIIYl»Hll^SMMII^IU.J»-'l^tMX-.Ji - . . • I LI That means they help significantly long-wearing and available to conserve raw materials. There are so many benefits to steel belted radial tires that within three years, it's predicted, they'll be the predominant choice for original equipment and •. replacement tires in this country. Why isn't the switch-over moving faster? Because of the enormous cost to the American rubber companies of buying new equipment. And because radials are much more difficult to manufacture; they're a precision-engineered and built product and take longer to make. Bridgestone has kept their supply up to the demand. So, there's the steel belted radial story. It's really an exciting development, if you get turned on by tire stuff! If you don't, just feel secure knowing that we do! We're constantly checking test results on all steel belted radials— both foreign 'and domestically produced. In fact, we've examined test results of an inexpensive single ply steel radial— the only one produced in the United States at this time. We're happy to offer ou.r customers any tire that's of comparable smooth process that should enable American companies to produce a truly competitive steel belted radial without pricing it out of the ball park.' The big manufacturing problem is getting those side-by-side inner radial plies and the belts of steel- mesh lined up straight. Each must be carefully placed to reduce the internal friction and heat that are the natural enemies of all tires. At El Campo, we're dedicated to the progressive marketing of tires. That means staying on top of the trends in the industry and bringing dollar back! those trends to Arizona. So, in 1965 we received some of the first Michelin whitewalls for American cars. Sales were slow. Nobody could believe the tire would do what Michelin said it would. It did. stone. For the record we define value as a combination of price, mileage and trouble-free service. Again, if you have any questions about these steel belted radials— or if you want to make sure we have them in your size (you know we mean your car's size!)—just give us a buzz. Natural ly, these tires are covered by the manufacturer's 40,000 mile guarantee an our own El Campo "Cash-Back" Guaranteed Mileage 40,000 mile guarantee.
