McWnorter said Monday that he has received several telephone calls from persons reporting that they could not hear the w a r n i n g system. He said some of the prbb- iem may be due to the fact that some persons may have had their radios or televisions turned up too high lo hear the system over the roar of the storm or they simply may have 5?',£? en lislenil B for the signal. McWhorler said t h a t m a n v persons could not hear the warning simply because (he system does not cover the entire city McWhorter said the" svstem would be activated when a tornado is sighted within a 20 mile r a d i u s of Fayetteville especially coming from the west or southwest.

Government Said Threatening' To Oilmen HOUSTON (AP) - The ton spokesman for Texas independent oil and gas operators says brighter trends w i t h i n the in- d u s t r y are being threatened at the federal level. George Mitchell of Houston says operations by independents should be during the next year at their highest level since the 1950s. "Any changes in laws affect- ing the petroleum industry, oth cr than removing governmen controls on n a t u r a l gas, o viously would he counte productive," the president i the Texas Independent I'rodu ers Royalty Owners Assoc ation said Monday. Mitchell made his remarks the association approved an 1 point n a t i o n a l resolution energy renews polic pic House Beauty Shop Committee Runs Profitable Enterprise By F R E D E R I C K L. BERN'S TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON -- In a tim of Watergate and i n f l a t i o n an energy shortages, there's not whole lot to cheer about her these days. So. hopefully, happy story about a l i t t l committee with little rcsport will make a big splash. But. most likely, it won't. This is the odd story of th House Beauty Shop CoinmiUe II is. officially, the smallest L the 57 committees in Congress It is, unofficially, the leas known of the 57 committees i Congress. But. like every other com mittee. it has a function. Whil all the other committees ar sruggling with tax reform an veerans' benefits and impeach ment. the House Beauty Sho Committee has the job o "overseeing" the House Beaut Shop. The beauty shop, tucked awa In the basement of the Canno House Office Building, is lik any beauty shop anywhere. Yo can make an appointment ,an get a shampoo for a minimun of $3.50 or a permanent for m i n i m u m of $17.50. Manicure and lash and brow dyes all cos $2.50. And for a minimum o $20.50. you can get your hai frosted. Just six years ago, there wa. no House Beauty Shop Commit ee. There was only a House Beauty Shop. independent!} nvned and operated to serve he women of Capitol Hill. In hose days, like now, the beautj shop was making money. Lot. SOUGHT PAYMENT One day the shop's operatoi decided to ask the governmen or payment .for her services government officials reminded her t h a t she was being provided with space, water, heat anc ight for her shop at no cost To her request for payment hey said, simply, "no. Then the strangest thing lappened. When a few women showed up one morning for their ap pomtments the beauty shop was [one. The manager was gone The beauticians were gone. And housands of dollars worth equipment was gone, too. The manager got mad a n d House staff member recalls No one has ever heard from ler since. Someone, a few days later iformed John W. McCormack tien the House Speaker t h a t he beauty shop that used to ie no longer was. He imme- lately named Rep. Martha G r i f f i t h s (D-Mich.), Rep Edith Green (D-Ore.) and Rep Catherine May (R-VVash.) to a ommiltee to bring the beauty hop back to life. To help them do so. the House ·rovKled $15.000 for new equip- nent and other expenses from ie contingency f u n d . The commitee found a new lanager and the new manager ound a new staff -- a total f 18 beauticians and manicur- sts. And slowly but surely the e m a 1 e congressional staff nembers -- and many of the J congresswomen --- returned o the basement beauty shop NEW LEADER In 1970. Rep. Margaret Heck- r (R-Mass.) was appointed tn ie little committee to replace epresentative May, who was efeaied in her bid for re-elec- on. So Mrs. Heckler began tending the periodic meetings "go over the books." Soon, the beauty shop was :akiiig money again. So much i. in fact, that it has since en able to turn about J2.000 a year in excess profits bac to Congress. So, in the end. everyone wa happy. Speaker McCormac remarked how never before ha money from the House contin gency fund been repaid. Othe: remarked how, a f t e r 32 year of private ownership, " th beauty shop was bigger better than ever before." "Now the morale in the sho is high and the shop is we run." commented Mrs. Heckle. Like the other two members Mrs. Heckler telongs to bigge and better committees; in he case, the Banking and Currene and Veterans' Affairs con: mittees. So, when she talk about the House Beauty Sho Committee -- which isn't ver_ often -- she speaks in hushec almost embarassc-d tones. "It's not something I sought, she reminded a reporte recently. "It's hardly one of m more substantive commitees." Yet the unsought, unsubslar live House Beauty Shop Con mittee is a source of good news And goorl news in Washingtoi these days is tough to conn by.

Meanwhile, observers in ,,,, Middle East said Nixon's Arab hosts would tell him that Israe must withdraw from all oceu pied territories and restore Pal estinian rights if Ihere is to bi peace in the area. In Israel, the government ra :lio welcomed Nixon's visit a "both useful and timely." and a commentator said the Presi dent would "deepen the Ameri can presence in the area." He said Nixon "will be able to as sess the new mood in Arab cap tals and gain important im pressions on how Arab leader: see the coming months in thi region." Fire Damages Home A small one story frame lome was extensively damage: Monday night on Old Missouri Joad. at its intersection with Stubblefield Road. The home is iwned by Wallace V.

Enter Innocent Plea James Skip Lewis, 28, a n d iickey Tew, 20, both of Tulsa, Ikla., pleaded innocent Monday i W a s h i n g t o n Circuit ·ourt to a charge of robbing ie Vines Texaco Station in Xvetleville last Friday after- oon. Both are being held in the ashington County jail on 20,000, pending trial Aug. 20. Tew's younger brother has eert charged in juvenile court. Lewis and Rickey Tew are ccused of holding up the ser- ice station and taking $12. for removal of Interstate natural gas sales from federal price controls and pledged active opposition to any reduction or elimination of the industry's 22 per cent depletion tax allowance. John Sawhill, the new administrator of the Federal Energy Office, and Tex. Gov. Dolph Briscoe were to speak today at the concluding session of the association's annual two - day meeting. AGREEMENT Both Mitchell and Duke l,i- gon. assistant FEO administrator, agreed Monday that reduction or elimination of percentage depletion would raise consumer gasoline prices. Ligon estimated elimination coukl mean an increase of two to three cents a gallon at the gasoline pump. Proposals now before Congress would phase out the 22 per cent allowance by 1979 or eliminate it completely, retroactive to Jan. 1. Ligon said some members of Congress apparently do not understand t h a t tax subsidies should not be removed while leaving the bulk of oil and gas production under price ceilings. "We as a nation cannot afford to invite economic disaster ay passing fragmented legisla- ,ion t h a t ignores tax and price :olicy relationships," he said. "We will onlf hurt ourselves/ He added that hasty decisions :o revise tax policy could leave he nation even more vulnerable to future oil embargoes by exporting nations. Mitchell said changes in the depletion allowance would be particularly discouraging to tne independent explorationist who ilrills four out of every five domestic wells. He added, however, that he has detected some encouraging signs at the Washington level in recent weeks. NO SCAPEGOAT "An increasing number of open-niindtd Congressmen and senators are beginning to comprehend that they cannot make ,he oil industry a scapegoat for he energy shortfall and at the same time expect us to carry 'orward the vital task of mak- ng the United States self-suf- 'icient in energy," Mitchell said. "Prices are at a level to pro- r ide good incentives for intense xploration and development efforts and it appears the tubu- slecl shortage may ease during the later months of 1974 · early 1975." While opposing any depletion allowance change, the independents took one action aimed it protecting themselves should "ongress take the allowance away from major producers. They authored a study aimed at developing a defini- ion that would spell out a separation point between an inde- jendent and a major producer. "Many members of Congress are sympathetic to the role of (Jie independent and w a n t to Area News Briefs Stereos Stolen The theft of a stereo tape player and an FM radio from two separate cars at the Chateau Apartments. 1764 N.
