Slower Speeds Cut Deaths In South Carolina MYRTLE BEACH. S.C. (AP - Gov. John West of Sout Carolina says slower speed and smaller quantities of liquc lave combined to reduce ni stale's traffic death toll.

Slate's Ecology Leaders Present Case At PSC Hearing LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Ar-l However, Ted Goodloc, cxec- ansas ecology leaders opened utive director of (he Arkansas Nortfiwcst Arfc«m«« TIMES, W«f., Juiw 19, 1974 AHK»K»*» heir attack Tuesday on the dequacy ol national air quality andards -at a state Public «rvice Commission hearing. The hearing concerns Aransas Power Lrght Co.'s ap- licalion for a certificate of ublic need and environmental compatibility for its proposed /tiitc Bluff power plant near ;edfield. Dr. Charles H. Hine, a health onsultant for APL, testified lat the air quality s t a n d a r d s hat have been promulgated by ic Environmental Protection protect human .gency do calth. Since API, says that sulphur dioxide and paniculate cniis- iions from its p l a n t won't ex- cecl those sliiniiards, Hine said le had ccmclurtld that the facil- ty would have no adverse ef- ecls on human health. Hine also said that KPA is conducting research pointing oward the adoption of stand ards for sulphates. Sulphates are the decomposed or highly acidic form of sulphur dioxide that combine with other chemicals in the atmosphere. SPECULATIVE DATA Hines said that all currenl data on sulphates are specula- ,ive. He also contended thai sulphates have not been measured consistently. Ecology Center, brought out an EPA publication o[ air quality statistics for 1968 which listed 2-1-hour sujphate levels. He attempted to show that the 24- hour m a x i m u m ' of sulphates would come near the threshold level. Hine pointer! out that the sta- islics were from 1%8 and that ,hc sulphate level generally had dropped in many parts of the country since then. Assistant Ally. Gen. Fred Frawley attempted to undermine the chimney plume d i s - persion calculations used by APL consultant Paul Mor- ^ensterm. Dr. Michael D. Williams ol New Mexico, who is Frawley's expert on the matter, chose to mathematically measure the of- 'cct of the atmospheric conditions on what the pollutant scaring plume from the plant's 750-foot chimneys would do. Williams argued t h a t the utility should install special equip iiient or scrubbers to contro the sulphur dioxide emissions. Frawley contended that Wil liams calculations are better than Morgenstern's hecaust Williams had used a different computer model that is more accurate for measuring groum level concentrations of sulphu dioxide. Morgenstern is to resume tes today. The PSC also wil 'roni members of the pub lie wanting to make "limilet appearance" statements on the proposed coal-fired plant.
