Police Chief Darrell Gates said police had no indication that the SLA was in Los Angeles until the sporting goods store shooting. The trio involved in the incident announced that they were SLA members and command cored three vehicles to make their getaway, setting off a massive manhunt. Asked how long three SLA members were in the house lhat was attacked Friday [light, Gates said. "Our best estimate U that it was just that day." Asked whether the Friday night Shootout that led to the tlie deaths of the fivg.would put the SLA out of operation, a police spokesman replied, "I hope." - The spokesman declined to 'speculate whether Miss Hearst, who had renounced her family and pledged allegiance to the SLA, could be with other suspected SLA members still at large.

Proper cultural practice nclude planting the straw wrries in flat surfaced row 24 inches wide on a four foo center with proper plant popu ation.

Since this rea's receiving waters are enerally small with very low ows in dry weather, the ef- uent has to be much purer Neal said a spot check above le city's discharge plant and clow it last February showed hat the released effluent ac- ually improved the water uality of Spring Creek. In order lo decrease the BOD evel, treatment of the effluent las to be increased. Increased r e fl t m e n t usually means reatly increased costs. While EPA has not specified how Springdale has to go about m e e t i n g equirements he federal agency is requiring ertiary (treatment in three Sages) treatment by July 1, 977. Several area officials also nvolvcd in obtaining discharge permits for their respective vaslewaler treatment plants lave expressed a fear that the strict standards and need for ncreased treatment will drive ndustry from Northwest Arkansas. HAVOC CRIERS Industries would be expected to pay their proportionate share of the increased treatment costs. Since not as much treatment would be needed if the nduslries located near the Arkansas River, some officials predict economic disaster to the region if the standards arc not relaxed. While he recognized this possibility, Neal sai1 he did not want to panic about this but 'nstead wanted to do the best possible and seek federal funding. He said that at a Congressional hearing on the 1972 federal law and amendments earlier this yer. Congress was earlier this year, Congress was deadline. He said he understood that Congress said it would not change the deadlines hut would ask communities to do the best they could by those dates. Technically, communities not meeting the 1977 discharge requirements can be fined 325,000 a day. City and water department officials can be j a i l e d for not meeting requirements, Neal said. "Doing the best we can is what we all want to do." Neal said. He added he did not feel EPA is being unreasonable. "The permit is unreasonable." he said, "but you're offered an Five rural Winslow residents were injured about 5:20 p.m. Saturday when their car went out of control on a steep hill, skidded 150 feet, overturned twice and landed upside down in the West Fork of White River. Stale Trooper Charles Brooks said the car was driven by R a n d a l l Robbins, 17. of Route 2, Winslow. Passengers in the c a r were Robbins' twin Brothers, James and Kelly Robbins, 11; his father, Daniel Robbins. 36 and Kenneth Sherman, 16. of Route 1. Winslow. Brooks said Ihe brakes on the car failed as young Robbins navigated a sleep hill which ends in a sharp turn to the west. He said the car landed ir about four feet of water and he injured were assisted out of the vehicle by James Lyons who lives near the scene. Randall Robbins was admitted [or observation: Daniel Robbins was being x-rayed at press time and the other three were released afler treatment.

Man Hurt In Bike Wreck Wild Chase Ends With Arrest Of Two At Rogers SPRINGDALE -- A wild police chase that led from Springdale to Rogers at speeds n excess of !10 miles per hour, climaxed Friday night with two aulo accidents, one involving a stolen police car. and the arrest of two Rogers men on a variety of charges. William R. Smedley. 30. and Gary W. Bolton, J5, both of Rogers were released on bonds totaling $1,416.75 Saturday. Police said the chase began at the intersection of Thompson Avenue (Hwy. 71) and Maple Street when Smedley refused to dim the lights on his car. When police attempted to stop Smedley, he pulled away, running a red light and causing several motorists to leave the road to avoid being hit by his car. The chase ended about one mile north of Lowell, inside the Rogers city limits, when Smedley attempted to pass another car on the dirt shoulder of the highway. Smedley lost control of his car, sliding across the highway, into a ditch and smashing into a culvert. According to police reports, Smedley then fled on foot, as did Bolton. a passenger in the car. EVENTS NOT CLEAR E x a c t l y what happened between that time and the time the two were apprehended is not clear, but police say they believed that Smedley ran to nearby house and talked the iwner into taking him to the Rogers Memorial Hospital for opportunity to answer it. Then a public hearing is held. After that, the municipality can appeal the EPA's decision." NOT DICTATORIAL EPA is not being "dictatorial", Neal contended. He pointed out that the permit to which he would be writing a reply is only (he proposed one. Once issued, the permit will be renewable every five years. Between renewal dates, the Water and Wastewater Depart- ·menl has to report any changes and open its facility and records to authorized inspectors at any time. Part of the problem with meeting the 1977 deadline is simply the timing itself, according to Neal. The city is just getting ready to accept construction bids on a nearly $3 million expansion to ils present vastewater treatment plant. While the expansion will mprove the current effluent realmenl, additional expansion ind improvements will be needed after the first step is completed in order lo meet federal requircmenls. Bui the cujrenl expansion program is not scheduled to be completed until early 1977. Additional work lo meet the luly, 1977 standards cannot be completed in two months. Neal noted thai the city is on Ihe priority list for the 1975 'iscal year to obtain funding in order to start a study of ways :o meet the federal standards. Once on the priority list, a city usually receives the grant, Neal said. The Tuesday night meeting was called to let the public attend and find out what is going on and how it wilt affect them personally, Neal said. He ssed hope that persons opposing the plans or the way the city's Water and Wastewater Treatment Department plans to handle the permit will attend, A man waiting to be Irealcd by doctors at Washington Regional Medical Center, apparently walked away before being x-rayed, after being injured in a bicycle accident. Fayelleville p o l i c e said Charles Malone, 38, of 1819 Janice St. was injured Saturday afternoon when the bicycle he was riding hit a hole and went 'end over end" in an alley Behind the old Howard's Discount Store al 2217 N. College Ave. Malone was laketi lo the hospital by Patrolman Don Bayles following the accident. Hospital officials said a doctor had ordered X-rays for Malone, hut orderlies who went to take him for treatment could not locate him. treatment. Police also think Bolton hid while police were chasing the two and that when they passed him in an attempt to catch Smedley, Bolton doubled back and took one of the patrol ears, which had been left with the keys in the ignition, and headed back towards Lowell. The patrol car was found a short time later in a ditch on Hwy. 264. about 11)0 yards west of Hwy. 71. Bolton was arrested while walking on Hwy. 71, just south of Hwy. 264. . Smedley was taken into custody at the Rogers hospital, where he was receiving treatment for injuries sustained in the accident. Smedley was charged with driving while intoxicated (3rd offense), possession of a More Writing Direct From Grade School EDITOR'S NOTE: Three more examples of the writing of elementary students in the cilv schools are published today in the TIMES.
