Heavy thunderstorms, possibly including a tornado, struck about five miles northwest of Kennedy Airport in New York, destroying more lhan 100 trees. Low streets and areas along creeks in Raleigh. N.C., were washed by flash floods after a l'/2-inch rain. An inch or more of rain soaked much of [he region from Maine to the Carolinas. A cold snap over the central states, Great Plains and Mississippi Valley produced a clear crisp night with temperatures again dropping lo record levels in places. Milwaukee's 44 degrees set a record for both Tuesday night and early today. A frost warning was out for most ot Michigan and scattered light frost was expected ia other Northern stales. The Gult Coast was shrouded i clouds. A few thunderstorm broke over the Southwest, and clouds covered the northern Pacific Coast. Temperatures west of the Rockies were seasonal. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 36 at Pellston, Mich., and Hihbing, Minn., to 1)3 at Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas, Nev.

Class I would allow the least amount of increased production. EPA, however, lias proposed that all stales be placed in Class II, which EPA described as "areas where moderate change is desirable bill where stringent air quality constraints are nevertheless desired." EPA's proposed Class III would allow pollution ol sulphur dioxides and particulates up to ut not exceeding, federal secondary ambient air quality t a n d a r d s , T h e secondarj landards are more stringent nan primary standards which vere designed to protect Ini- nan health. GIVEN TWO YEARS EPA has proposed to give the ilates two .years in which lo reclassify all or parts Â· of their areas from Class II to Class I c lr or Class III or to consciously c l r allow them to remain in Class quo the entire "significant dele- ration" issue if a stale .did act within two. years. Bumpers said he and Richard Arnold, a gubernatorial aide, re working on the resolution. irnold, a lawyer, has repre- ited environmental groups in rious court battles. Ho wns en 'more critical,' of EPA esday than the governor. . v Arnold said EPA was ''put- g the bias in the wrong diction" by placing slates into ass II rather than Class I. He scribed Class I as "sort ol lerc we are now -- the status o of air quality/' Instead o! ving a presumption tha can air should be maintained 5PA's presumption , favors development, Arnold said. ' He said it would be . miich easier for a slate to shift from Class I to Class II than the' other way around. In the length of :imo it might to: take to meet all of the procedural requirements lor reclassificalion, industries could move into an area that a state subsequently might decide should be in Class l t 'Arnold contended that, the burden should be on industry to show that it is sufficiently desirable at a given location (or the stale to re'classify an area lo Class II or Class HI. He also expressed ; doubt -ibout the the legality of EPA's proopsed significant, delcrlora-' tion regulations. Â· ~ .. ' The agency was ordered to dralt the proposed regulations in 1972 by the District C6urt for the District of Columbia .Circuit Court. The question of .whether air quality should be weighed against economic Â· considerations was one of the major arguments in the case from which the court decision stemmed. "I have a feeling the court did not mean thill economics should bo weighed against air quality," Arnold said. clr .clr cdy cdy rn rn Juke Box Entered A juke box near the swim ming pool at Wilson Park was entered sometime between Monday and 3:20 p.m. Tues day.

EPA would -assume Â· control To Impose Surcharge LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Carroll Electric Co-operative Corporation plans to put a proposed surcharge into effect on the next billing lo its customers. Carroll Electric notified the Public Service Commission ol that decision Tuesday. Carroll Electric and eight other members of the Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. have sought permission from [he PSC to pass on to their customers a surcharge levied by Corp., which supplies much of their power. After 120 days, the cooperatives may pass on .the surcharge automatically, provided they guarantee refunds if the PSC later rejects part or all of the proposed surcharge.
