By a 221-1BI vote on Tuesday the House referred the bill bac' to a House-Senate conference. "This is not a defeat fo mass transit," said Rep.

And this is the family's mail iroblem. SMALL OPERATION "It's a shame that we can 1 lupply everyone's orders, bu vc're a small operation .... an hat's the key to our good po ato chip," he said. "You can' produce .our type chip . on arge scale, believe me." The Kobayashi's Main chip irst of all, is thicker than th conventional chip from th nainland and it's brownish olor, almost burnt looking. It' isually larger and slightl irittle too. "The darker color of on ibtps is caused from the suga :ontent in the potatoes use," said Kobayashi. "Th arger companies use the kin if potatoes; that make a white coking chip ... which is okay i ,'ou're only' interested in how ]hip looks and not how :astes." Only nine employes and th hree Kobayashis make up th entire work force at the sma chip-making factory. The pc ato peeling and cutting is dor by machinery, but the rest done by hand, including th cooking, salting and packing. Yoshio Kobayashi, the falhe: landles all the cooking -which is done every week da from 11 p.m. to 1 p.m. the no: day. Dewey and his brother Jo handle the mass packing an shipping chores. The plant consumes about 3 sacks of potatoes, all imporie from California and Washin ton, per day. "It's hard to sa just exactly how many bags o chips we put out because varies so much," Dewey said. The fuel crisis has also ha its effect on the operation. Di scl fuel is used to heat II large cooking vals, and sin the company is allocated fu by its 1972 usage level, "cor pany growth" is being he back. Kobayashi, even though 1 makes what he calls "the be chip in the world," is not h own biggest fan. He says prefers baked potatoes to h chips. "When you look at a pota for 18 hours or longer a and sec nothing but pota chips, you don't want to ; home and have them on tl table, no matter how good th' are."

Officials of the Securities and Ixchange Commission told the u s 11 c e Department three veeks ago that they intended to ile the suit regardless of vhether Hughes was named in criminal indictment, depart- nent sources said Wednesday.

The Hughes Tool Co., now known as t h e umma Corp., took over the airline. ARALLEL INVESTIGATIONS The parallel Justice Depart- nent and SEC investigations have been marked by internal disputes about the strength of Hughes, who hasn't been seen in public for years, reportedly s living in the Bahamas under protection of an extradition agreement which could shiejd trim from returning to trial in the United Stales. Government prosecutors in Las Vegas are preparing to seek a court summons commanding Hughes.' return. That would be the first, step toward extradition proceedings. If Hughes escapes extradition, the trial of the other three defendants could proceed. But the government couldn't touch Hughes unless he were subsequently apprehended in this country. An SEC suit, making similar charges in a.civil rather than a criminal proceeding, could present Hughes with a greater threat, although his personal liberty would not be at stake. It was not clear whether the SEC intends to proceed against Hughes personally or only against his corporation. But a suit against the corporation could be tried without his case against Hughes anc most effective action to presence and could yield harsh icnalties. An SEC suit also could conflict with the criminal proceedings, already bogged down in bureaucratic disputes. Hughes first was indicted in the Air West case last December, but a federal judge threw out the charges a .month later and gave the Justice Department until midnight Tuesday to renew them. As the deadline approached, dispute developed between top Justice Department officials in Washington and the U.S. attorney in Las Vegas, V. DeVoe Heaton.
