The three companies say the higher prices, :put into effect this week, are the result of changes in the cost of foreign crude.,oil. Federal energy regulations allow oil companies to adjust their prices once, a, month to reflect such changes. The changes are to be passed along to consumers at gas- , olme stations owned by the companies, and independent service station operators are expected to raise their prices also Late last month Gulf Oil Co. said it was able to find low , er crude oil costs, and it reduced wholesale prices by 1 6 cents per'gallon; effective July 261 The federal guidelines, say «uch decreases must be passed on to consumers by independent dealers. Texaco'raised its prices on Monday, and Shell put its increase into effect on Thursday The Standard Oil of California (SoCal) increase also went into effect Thursday, bringing retail prices of gasoline to 57 9 cents a gallon for regular, 5S 9 cents for unleaded and v 611 cents for premium at company-owned stations SoCal said independent stations could either pass along the in crease or absorb;.it.

Court Blocks For Automobil LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- State Insurance Commissioner Ark White House Shuns Move To Censure j WASHINGTON (AP) -- Shunning a move to censur*- rather than impeach President Nixon, White House aides are portraying the proceeding in the House of Representatives as .a political "struggle, ; with President Nixon in the role of the undergoing. Republicans on Friday introduced in the House a resolution offering an alternative to a full-fledged impeachment proceeding. It would censure Nixon for "maladministration and moral insensilivily" but not call for his removal from office. ' While House spokesmen: had no formal comment on the resolution introduced by Rep. Paul Findley, R-I11., and signed by. House GOP leader John J. Rhodes of Arizona. While urging that the Hous» be given such an alternative, Rhodes himself took no stand for or against censure. He scheduled a news conference or Monday to announce his pc- Sition on impeachment. White House spokesman Gerald L. Warreh; talking with newsmen before presentation of the resolution, for the first time-; described impeachment as "a political struggle." · : 'UP-HILL FIGHT "We recognize the situation as it exislsiin the. House -... we'. lace an up-hill struggle," Warren said. He later added that while he was not conceding the House would impeach -Nixon, if .you had to make odds. . . you would have to place tha-. President in the role of the uri; derdog." ; , Warren's reference . to th«, proceeding as political marked' a n - apparent shift 'in Whit*; House strategy. Previously,, he: and other spokesmen have stressed.the legal aspects of the-, proceeding and contended that' the evidence would vindicate Nixon. . : The spokesman described Nixon as ''in very good spirits'-'and said he is spending much of his time reviewing tapes and other materials being turned · over to U.S. District Judge-, John J. Sirica as ordered by" the U.S. Supreme Court last- week. . ' ! -·'" In Sirica's courtroom on Friday, White House lawyers were- ordered to turn over Nixon's notes about subpoenaed Watergate conversations by Wednes- lay. DEADLINE SET Sirica set the deadline after pressing the White House t« speed the delivery of tapes and.. 1 materials of 64 conversations and related documents subpoe-. naed for the Watergate coverup trial. .Meanwhile. Sen. Walter .F; Mondale, D-Minn.. said he will ask the Senate to subpoena the tapes and-materials of the 6 4 . conversations if the Senate conducts a presidential impeachment trial. House Speaker Carl Albert Indicated opposition to censure,saying "I'm certainly not recommending it. I would not vole.. to censure the President. I would either vote for or against. the (impeachment) resolution." · But Democratic Whip John J.-^ McFall of California said "it's, a possible way out" and con-, fended Houe members should have that alternative. LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The attorney- for state Sen. Guy "MuttV' Jones Sr. of Conway said Friday Jones would take the Senate to coutt over its action Thursday, expelling Jones. Phil.Stratton of Conway, who also is Jones' law partner, said he 'and Jones had discussed the legal action in general terms, but-had not decided whether to file the suit in Pulaski County Circuit Court. Court or Chancery ','! would say that we are^go- taiji to court," said Straiten. "I think every, lawyer In the Sen- ate knew at the time they did this'it was going to the court." Jones was ousted on a 25-6 vote 1 because of his conviction on felony charges of violating federal income tax laws. He has been suspnded from legal practice for one year. However, before taking the vote Thursday, the Senate had to erase from the record another vote on the same question taken July 12, during the special session of the legislature. At that time the Senate voted 21-12 to expel Jones -- three votes short of the two - thirds majority needed. Stratton said that the second vote on .the same question was unconstitutional. He'said' if the move .expel Jones w a s a criminal sanction, the 'second vote amounted to double'jeop- ardy. ' : If. the. action was a. civil action, Stratton said the second vote amounted to litigating something that already had been: decided. . Stratton also s a i d Jones might contest the action because Gov. Dale Bumpers was out of Ui» state and Lt. Gov. 'ID Bob Ritey was serving at tenv porary governor. Riley also presided.over^Uie Senate Thursday, which' is the'.' job of, the lieutenant governor, '· ; 'riot the governor, Stratton said,. : · "It might be novel, but it's one .of the to us," Stratton' said. r i He said Jones also had sufficient reason to have the expulsion overturned because no official, written notice 'of the rehearing was given to the senators.
