"Productivity is the mainspring oi economic stability, growth and HONOLULU (AP) -- You can| drive farther on a cold gallon of gasoline t h a n on a warm gallon, but Hawaii has imposed rules to insure t h a t every gallon sold contains the same amount of energy. Hawaii is the only slale to require I emporalure-corrcclcd gallons, and in times of energy shortages, this makes a real d i f f e r e n c e , the stale's director of weights and measures said Tuesday. "Somebody is being ripped off whether the retailer or the consumer--if you don'l correct for tcmiwrature." said George H. MallimoE. A slandard gallon of gasoline is defined as 231 cubic inches at 60 clebrecs Fahrenheit, he said. In this balmy city, though the average temperature of the product is about 80 degrees. For every 10 degrees temperature increase or decrease gasoline expands or contracts six tenlhs of one per cent volume. "Before we correcled for temperature, consumers weri losing half a pint of gasoline in a five gallon purchase." Mat timoe said. "That amounted tc about $1.5 million lost by con sumers each year in Hawaii." The state requires Honoluh dealers to pump 233.8 cubii inches for a one-gallon deliv ry. The size of a gallon varies rom area to area and from ummer lo winter.

Opponents argued thai the ommission duplicates the work existing agencies. Rep. lenry Gonzalez (D-Tcxas) said productivity commission is, herefore, "unproductive." Rep. I. R.

EGG PRODUCTION Passed. 238 for and 151 against in amendment lo force egf producers to pay the total cos of a proposed federal program to help them sell eggs. The amendment was attache (o a bill (H.R. 12000) to le the Department of Agriculture advise egg producers on im proved production methods ar better advertising techniques. As a result of the amcnc mcnl. the program will b financed only by a voluntar five-cents per case (30 doze eggs) tax on large producers. The amendment changed Ian guage that would have per milled Ihe Department of Agr culture lo pay up lo $100,00 a n n u a l l y i n administrate costs. Supporters a r g u e d that government subsidy is nc pon ld . igg producers, should get subsidies similar to those given cotton and grain growers. Alexander, Hammerschmtdl and Thornton voted "nay." Mills did not vole. SENATE ROLL CALL SPEED LIMIT -- Rejected 29 for an d 62 against, an amendmenl to let stales raise their speed limits lo 60 miles per-hour. Since Jan. 2. slales nave been subject lo the feder y-csUiblished 55 m.p.h. speed limit. In rejecting the amendment the Senate voted lo continue th lower limit. The amcndmcn was offered to S. 3267. ai energy bill. Supporters argued that state: should be permitted to adjus speed limits to local terrain and said that 55 m.p.h. is to slow for long-distance trave! western states. Sen. Rober Dole (R-Kan.) said that m.p.h. is an unreasonably an frustralingly low speed to tra vel," He also said the low lim" hurts the trucking industry. In opposing the higher limi aid, "The higher speeds equire more energy. The igher speeds will kill more eople." Sen. Jennings Ranolph (D-W. Va.( cautioned .gainst forgetting "lhat (he fuel hortage was nol a mid-winler allucination, but rather a per- manenl fact of life." Sen. John McClellan (D) 'Oted "yea." Sen. J. W. Fulbright did not vote. SCHOOL AID -- Passed, 56 or and 36 against, an amend ment to give rural and suburban areas more Title I educa ion aid in fiscal 1975 than thcj received in 1974, and urban ireas less. The amendment was offeret .o S. 1539, the elementary and secondary education bill. Title I funds go to school dis tricts with high populations o tudents from poor families. Here's the list of slates tha will lose money under the nev formula, if it becomes law: Alaska, California, Connect cut, Illinois, Iowa, Kenlucki. Maine, Massachuselts, Michi gan. Minnesota, New Jersey New York. North Carolina O h i o Carolina. Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Sout Utah West Virginia and the Dislric of Columbia. The amendment adopted formula that the House alread had passed. In general, senators volin or the amendment were those hose states would get more M. and senators voting against ere those whose slates would ose money. McClellan voled "yea" and ""ulbright did not vote. BUSING -- Tabled, 47 for md 46 against, an amendment o prohibit long-distance busing if students to achieve racial jalance in the schools. The amendment was offered o the elementary and second- iry education bill. It also would iave permitted schools to go _o court to overturn certain existing busing plans. The amendmenl would have prohibited busing students far- ter than the school next-closest :o their neighborhood school and would have outlawec using across school districi ines unless Ihe lines drawn for racial reasons. In voting to table the amend monl, the Senate in effect killed it. Supporters of the move to table argued thai the counlo has enough problems wilhou gelling further hung up on Ihi issue of busing. They salt busing is effective in breaking, down social barriers, and fo providing equal education. Those voting against tin move to table argued tha busing fires racial tensions instead of calming them. Sen Edward Gurncy (R-Fla.) sai here is "no consistent evidence f educational improvement ai resull of busing." McClellan voled "nay" and Fulbrighl did not vote. I'ARENTAL CONSENT -Rejected. 40 for and 43 against, n amendment to require arental consent before schools force sludenls le undergo erlain "psychological" leets or larticipate in "innovative' programs. The amendmenl was offered o Ihe elementary and second- ry education bill. Those voting for argued that control over what students earn should be left to their parents, nol Ihe schools. Sen. J a m e s Buckley (D-N.Y.) argued lhat parents have Ihe ·ight to be informed aboul out- of-thc-ordinary federally funded irograms in which their child- ·en might participate." Those voting against argued .hat school programs and school-administered tests are matters of stale and local TOlicy, nol open to federal regulation. Sen. Alan Cranston (D- Calif.) · said the amendment "would thwart a slate's compulsory-attendance laws," and might interject the federal government into "issues of academic and personal freedom thai should be" lefl in local and stale hands. McClellan voted "yea" and Fulbright did not vote. limoe said, and temperature correction is standard within the petroleum industry. About the only place it is not the rule, he said, is at the retail gasoline pump. Because American motorists drive 10 per cent more in summer than in winter, Maltimoe said, only the motorists in a few chilly northern slates buy a true gallon of gasoline over Ihe long run. ___ Democratic Party Maverick To Challenge GOP Senator Mayor Peter F. Flaherty of, Pittsburgh today won the Democratic nomination to the U.S. Senate and the right lo challenge Pennsylvania's Republican Sen. Richard S. Schweiker in November. Flaherty, 48. a party maverick who accepted organization support in the big Democratic counties for his first statewide racl, squeezed pasl former stale insurance commissioner Herbert S. Denenbcrg and two rivals in Tuesday's primary e! ecu'on. Flaherty's victory came in a surge of vote returns f r o m western countries where he piled up big majorities, including solid support from Democrats in his home Allegheny County. Denenberg, 44, who became nalionally known wilh strong consumer stances as insurance commissioner, won Pliila delphia by 24,000 votes despite party backing for Flaherty. But Flaherty took Allegheny Coun- Master Gardener Is Losing Baffle With Dandelions TROY, Mich. (AP) -- Jerrj Baker, "America's master gar dener," is waging battle will the enemy in his front yard, and he's losing. He says every time he turns around Mother Nature "is giving me a punch in the mouth." A glance about Baker's yard in this Detroit suburb would nol indicate that the gardening author lives there. Like thousands of other yards, il is dolled wilh weeds. The grass needs mowing; Ihe half-acre is dotted wilh dan- dllions, dehydrated rhoden- dron. chickwecd and creeping junipers, and a 10-by-10 yard vegelable patch needs spading. "It's just your average yard.' 1 says Henry, a close friend and neighbor of Baker. Baker's fast-selling gardening bo ok s--"Plants are Like People" and "Talk to Your Plants"--have earned him the label of "America's master gardener" and "Mr. Grow It All.' Bui weeds are growing between and around many of his plants. A 115-foot blue spruce has grown crooked since it toppled in a winter storm. A large section of his backyard needs to be torn up and raised to keep it from flooding. And his evergreens need pruning. One of the Ihings Baker says in his books is lhat the gardener should talk to his plants -nicely. He has even gone so far as to name three of his favorites. "Deke, Denney and Doris Delphinium." Baker has his own television show, syndicated in more than 100 markets. His name is synonymous with growing things and he has been asked to endorse some 112 commercial products -- from fertilizer to windshield wipers -since he quit his job as a De trait policeman in 1961 to sell garden equipment. "I Jo what I say I do in my htokj. But I'm not immune from problems," Baker says. y. which includes Pittsburgh, by more than 67,000 voles. With 92 per cent of Ihe 9,610 ·recincls counleri, the vote vas: Flaherty 432,548, Denenberg 402.752, Ihe Rev. Frank Mesaros 60.507 and former U.S. Rep. James Qujgley 31.985. Flaherty had left his Pittsburgh hotel headquarters by Ihe lime victory was assured, ind Denenberg also had gone home to hod. ON HIS RECORD Schweiker said he didn't care which Democrat opposed him. He said he would run strictly on his own record. "It won't change my style. Watergate won't hurt me. How could it hurt someone who made the (President's) enemy 1st?" said Schweiker. who called recently for President Nixon's resignation. Election officials s a i d less :han 30 per cent of the stale's million regislcred Demo crats md 2.5 million registered Republicans cast ballots. They also nominated candidates for 25 congressional seats, governor, lieutenant governor and more than 200 legislative seals. In the 25 congressional races, only one incumbent fell. WILLIAMS LOSES Rep. Lawrence G. Williams, a suburban Philadelphia Republican, l o s t to Delaware County Dist. Ally. Stephen McEwen in the 7th District. Williams had been stripped of party backing in a squabble wilh Ihe GOP organization. Two olher GOP incumbents, John H. Ware in the 5th Dis- .ricl and George A. Goodling in .he 19th, retired instead of seeking re-election. Democratic Gov. Milton .T. Shapp, first chief executive to get a chance lo succeed himself ;ince 1876 because of a constitutional change, easily w r on rencrnination. R t p u b h c a n s nominated Drew Lewis, a 42-year-old businessman, to challenge Shapp. 61. in November. Melhanol Tested As Gasoline Substitute SEATTLE (AP) - You could drive a "coal stoker" instead of a gas guzzler under a program the federal government is considering. A government energy expert said Tuesday that the coal-produced fuel melhanol would cosl aboul 12 cents a gallon, but because it takes about twice as much methanol to produce the same- energy as gasoline, its effective price is doubled. But it still remains about half the price paid for gasoline. Dr. Alexander Mills, chief of the Division of Coal Energy Research for the U.S. Bureau of Mines, said government underwriting cost of a methanol production pilot plant, half of a demonstra- ion production plant and one- Ihird of Ihe automobile engine testing. Mills said 70,000 barrels of methanol a day are being produced at present in the United Stales. That's about one per cent of the producion of gasoline. in a speech the was considering two-thirds of the HWY. 71 S.
