16 Â· North wast Arkansas TIMES, Wed., April 24, 1974 rAVCTTIVILLE, ARKANSAS Committee Votes Rollback On U.S. Crude WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Commerce Committee has voted to roll back to pre Arab embargo levels the price of about 80 per cent of the crude oil produced in the United States. Dealing with a standby emergency energy measure, the panel also approved Tuesday an amendment that would impose a more stringent system ot price controls on imported oil. The Nixon administration has said, however, it no longer wants an emergency energy bill. Addition of the two pricing amendments was viewed as sharply hurling chances thai the standby measure will ever become law. If the rollback should become law, it would result in lower prices for gasoline and other petroleum products. The price rollback amendment, adopted by a 14-12 vote, is similar though not identical to a provision which spurred President Nixon to veto the original emergency energy bill March 6. Rep. Bob Eckhardt, DrTex.. who sponsored the amendment, said il was aimed to counter Nixon's objections by retaining sufficient price incentives to encourage exploration for new oil supplies. Childbirth Classes Will Be Conducted Childbirth classes will be conducted here by Mrs. Jan McGibbony and Mrs. Melanie King beginning Thursday. The classes will be held in apartment 128 at the Grandview Apartments, at the corner of Hwy. 71 South and Country Club Road. Instructors for the eight week course are certified by International Childbirth Education Association. Mrs. McGibbony who heads the Arkansas affiliate said a chapter is being organized in the area. Further information is available by calling 521-8736 or 4435572. The provision would roll hack the price of domestic oil to levels of November 1973 at the start of the Arab oil embargo, which aggravated an accelerating upsurge in oil prices. TWO EXEMPTIONS Exempted from the rollback would be oil from so-called slripper wells producing less than 10 barrels a day, as well as new oil discovered by companies producing less tlum 18,400 barrels a day. For most domestic oil. the ckhardl amendment would reduce prices from Ihc current $5.25 per barrel to $"1.25. Prices for so-called new oil, produced in excess of 1972 levels, would be rolled back from about $10 per barrel to $6.17. Controls on imported oil prices would be stiffened under an amendment by Rep. Brock Adams. D-Wash., which the committee approved by an 18-9 vote. T h e Adams amendment would prohibit American oil companies from passing on to consumers any increases in taxes and royalties levied by foreign countries which the companies subsequently deduct from their U.S. income tax. Adams said the provision was thus intended to eliminate a :urrcnt practice known as "double-dipping." In introducing their" amendments. Adams and Eckhardt cited first-quarter financial reports which showed that Gulf Oil Corp. and Standard Oil of Indiana netted profits more than 75 per cent higher than a year ago. Meanwhile, the American Automobile Association said its latest weekly spot check of 6,152 service stations showed the situation with gasoline availability has "generally stabilized." According to the AAA survey, 2 per cent of the stations checked were out of gasoline, the same as a week before. Also remaining the same were average gasoline prices-54 cents a gallon for regular and 58 cents for premium. The AAA said 83 per cent of the stations were pumping gas after noon on Saturday and 33 per cent were open on Sunday, representing a 2 per cent gain in both categories from Ihc previous week. Youth Attention Board Dissolved The Board of Directors of Youth Attention Homes of Northwest Arkansas wns formally dissolved at the final meeting held Tuesday afternoon. The resolution for dissolution was voted unanimously by Ihc directors and carried a stipulation that after liquidation all financial assets will be assigned to Youth Bridge Inc.

(TIMESpholo by Ken Good) Government Sues Over Loan To Black Business LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The government filed suit Tuesday in U.S. District Court at Little Rock seeking to recoup a $26,000 loan it made to Peoples Gin Corp., a black-owned business at Marianna.

Ross. County Extension ngont. General purpose spruys are ideally suited for this use, lie said. A general purpose spray contains n number of different chemicals that control a wide range of insect pesls nnd diseases. This multi-purpose function makes them adaptable to use on all kinds of fruil Irecs. Ready to use general purpose mixes are available at many farm and garden stores, bul are relatively expensive. Money can be saved by making your own general purpose mix at home. A good home mix to use in 3 gallons of water would be: 9 tablespoons of 50 per cent Sevin, 6 tablespoons of 25 per cent rrmlalhion, and 9 tablespoons of 50 per cent captan. The use of Sevin on apples before the second cover spray, which usually occurs 24 to 35 days after petal fall, may cause serious fruit drop. If you have npplc ^ trees, methoxychlor 50 per cent wettable powder can be substituted for Sevin in the general purpose spray at the rate of 0 tablespoons per 3 gallons of water. Perbam 76 per cent wettable powder can also be substituted (or captan if so desired. It should be used at the rate of 6 tablespoons per 3 gallons of water. These materials are all wettable powders and can be measured and mixed in the sprayer each time you spray. When a general purpose spray is purchased at the supply store, the container label should be checked for dosages. Sprays are usually needec about every 2 weeks during the season.
