William Wilbur Mills, D-Ark., at the airport here Saturday afternoon and the .two boadded Simon's airplane, saying they would discuss the economy on the flight : to Washington. Simon was returning from a speaking engagement at Phoenix, Ariz., where he predicted that the inflation rate would continue at about 9 per cent for the remainder of the year. He quickly disagreed with a slalement by Senate Majority . Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, who predicted Friday night that the nation was headed for another depression. . · "People who relate this present period to the one in 1929 and '30 are mistaken," 5aid Simon. "The fundamentals .are entirely different and we have many regulatory procedures today that would prevent iiow economic policy relates to lax policy. Within about a month after the end of the sum mit sessions, Simon predicted that Fodd would announce his new economic policy. Mills, chairman of the Way; and Means Committee, agree; with Simon that wage and prici controls were not called for a this time because they woulc almost have to be followed b: export embargoes to kee] goods that were in short suppl; in the country. He said the $305 billion budg et proposed in January coulc swell to $312 billion because o inflation, and said he sharec Ford's hope that it could be trimmed to below the $300 bil lion mark. NO Simon, SIGNIFICANCE Republican, Mills were asked about the po litical.,,, significance of the! meeting,''in light of Mills cur rent re-election campaign. H Flint Creek Testimony CONTINUED raOM PAGE ONI) aid in the testimony. In the SWEPCO impact state- lent the following quote apears: "Flint Creek is the most ivorable site for dispersion in ic U.S.." "I am somewhat mystified by his conclusion," Agee said. Maybe this is some type of misprint." Agee also pointed out that micrometeorological effects of he cooling lake have not properly been examined. He sees he interaction of the atmosphere with flic water surface as a potential danger. Local fogging effects that ibstruct visibility may occur by his interaction, Agee calcu- ated. Freezing drizzle, local ndcced snowfall, and acid rain ire other provlems which he fore- :ees. Charles Richardson, a University of Arkansas physics rofessor, agrees with Agee ibout the potential pollution iroblem of the plant. "We conclude that the predic- ed ground level concentration of sulfur dioxide resulting from operation of the proposed Flint "ireek Power Plant represents a significant degradation of the quality of air in this region and poses a potential threat to the niblic health and welfare," lichardson testified in his report. SOOKCE CITED Bryant S. Swindell, M.D., Arkansas Department of Health, cites the major source of urban sulfur oxides as coal-burning power plants. Swindoll states that there is an increase of pneumonia, chest colds and bronchitis in children living within the vicinity of such an operation. He also lists an increase of chronic respiratory disease in adults and diminished pulmon ary function as to other problems created by coal-burning power plants. "It is a documented fact thai above average levels of general mortality occur as an effect o: power plant pollutants." Swindell said in his testimony. Swindoll said that a detriment to health in all age groups occurs when sulfur dioxide con centrations range from 30 to several hundred micrograms per cubic meter of air. The Little Flint plant sulfur dioxide concentration will be a calculated 106 micrograms per cubic meter of air for a 24 hour period. Another concern of Swindol is the emission of mercury have expressed my con- to SWEPCO representa- that the proposed stack hich calls for a stack of less an 250 feel. CONCERN EXPRESSED "I ern ves far too short. Unless a stack about 2,5 times higher than ie nearest structure, down- ash will occur.

"In view of the foregoing, I annot at this time recommend the Cofmission on Pollution ontrol and Ecology that the resent application for a permit approved," Southall conclud- his testimony. Another unresolved question 1 the SWEPCO Impact -Statement was one'concernirig' the : ' from: the lake into may occur inhaled by that." Simon referred to the present economic woes of the country as "a business slowdown." He said that the National Bureau of Economic Research, a nongovernmental agency, had not even labeled the current situation a recession. iThe present inflation rate was caused, in part, by "excessive fiscal and monetary policies over the past 10 years, where the money stock grew in excess of 6 per cent and federal expenditures grew at an annual rate of 10 per cent," said Simon. ;'. RESTRAINT URGED ·-He said federal spending would have to be reduced and that everyone from the federal government down to the individual taxpayer would have to exercise restraint. : - "This is not a spectator sport," Simon said. "This is going to have to be a team effort on the part of all of us -- the Congress, the executive branch, labor, management and the American people." ; Simori said he would discuss with Mills the upcoming economic summit sessions planned by the Ford administralion and MISSED YOUR PAPER? : WE'RE SORRY!

NOR.THWEST ARKANSAS TIMES CLASSIFIED ADS lead, zinc and ash particles from the- stacks of the Little Flint plant. About 3,810,000 pounds of fly ash will be emitted annually into the air. Swindoll said that fly asl contains about 34 per cent silica and that a serious lung diseasi called "silicosis" ~--when fly ash humans. SMALL PARTICLES 'Of particular concern is fly ash which is 10 microns or les in size, as it Js most easih inhaled, into the airway tube and lungs where it-is deposited At tht Little Flint plant a particles will be less than fivi microns; 80 per cent will b lalf micron," Swindoll testified less than one micron; and 5 " cent will be less than one bwinaolt concluded his test mony by referring to the plan lealth potential de '"ment t "In our opinion, the proposei ack _ o f controls for stacl emissions would unnecessaril promote unhealthy conditions t citizens of this state. We d not believe that the burning o coal with the percentage of su fur indicated by SWEPCO alle yiates the health hazard, eve if established standards ar met. We consider the health o the citizens to be more import ant than the economy of th state," Swindoll emphasized Carl M. Shy, M.D., Institul for Environmental Studies North Carolina, has filed test mony which agrees with Swin doll that even when primary air quality standards for sulfu dioxide gases have bee achieved, atmospheric sulfate, are associated with advers health effects. Shy said that urban and non urban sites in Arkansas ar already loaded with widely dis persed concentrations of fates. He contended that ,,,. additional large sources of su fur oxide emissions, no matte now well controlled, are like to cause serious health lems. ILLNESS SEEN "There will be a harvesting-l of more, illness episodes an perhaps increased mortality larger numbers of suscentib individuals asthma or disease." Shy wrote. Another concern of the testimonies is the damage which the Flint Creek plant may Inflict upon agriculture in the Northwest Arkansas area. Lowell F. Bailey, chairman of the Department of Botany and Bacteriology at the University of Arkansas, said that the area selected for the site is largely dependent. on poultry, pasture, cattle, grapes, alfalfa and various truck crops. "Poultry are highly prone to prob with pre-existin heart and lun sas.

"There is the possibility eepage of water reposed 530 ' acre nderground aquifers and Big lint Creek, two miles down- tream from the plant site.

Dugan told the TIMES ollowing the announcement of he naming of the building to excessive losses of water of due ;o the probable existence of open fractures in the lake bed. Under these conditions it is likely that a significant portion of water in this reservbir will find its" way into the "ground-' water 'system :irt the'sitfe'area," Woomer stated in his testimony. In the SWEPCO Environmental Impact Statement the established safe concentration of several trace elements, lead, cadium, mercury, zinc and chromium, were estimated to be substantially higher than standards set by the Department of Pollution Control and Ecology. This was pointed out to SWEPCO by the APSC in the June deficiency letter. "SWEPCO's response to "the question...wa.s .to'.; replace, the figures with other .calculations showing' trace 'rnelal concentrations much, .lower than the standard. No documentation for the new data was offered, other than to refer to 'recently acquired data on the chemistry of ash ponds.' Copies of this recently acquired data were requested of SWEPCO officials but as of yet nothing has been forthcoming," Woomer wrote questioning the SWEPCO data. Woomer .also, questions the right of SWEPCO to totally pre- c erript the flow, of. Little: Flint "The. .natural - flow theory which says that an owner is entitled to 100 per cent of the (low of a stream has been rejected by Arkansas courts as unduly restrictive to other water users.

Jnfortunately · the city .expects to come down in price 'as result but we can't deviate, f the building just stands it becomes an ineligible project. It has been placed in limbo vhere nobody can touch it." However, Cockrill wrote: "H may be possible that with the historic designation the 'fair narket value' or 'highest and est use value' could be ad- usted." He added "Congressman John Paul Hammerschmidt has iffered his assistance in getting an administrative determination "rom HUD in "Washington regarding the matter. Cockrill's letter continues 'Regardless, the responsibility or initiating a change in the iresent plan calling for demo- ition'...rests with the Fayette- 'ille Housing Authority." After Urban Renewal plans calling for demolition of the Building were developed an ad loc committee was organized to protest the demolition. A petition containing more than 5,000 signatures was presented and a meeting between city and Urban Renewal officials w a s held. NO ACTION At that meeting agreement was reached to search for alternatives that would solve the differences. To date no action has been forthcoming to amend the Urban Renewal Plan. Cockrill told Dugan "any proposed change that is consistent with the intent of the Urban Renewal program and can be accomplished within the approved funding will be given careful consideralion by Ihis office." Dugan could not be reached for comment but a discussion of the significance of the building being on the Historical Register appears on the agenda for the Wednesday meeting of the Housing Authority. respiratory are shown disorders. Grapes to be sensitive to low levels of sulfur dioxide for short periods of time, sometimes less than an hour. Also highly susceptible are clover, alfalfa, and swtet potatoes" Bailey said. Bailey sees any further air contamination in th earea as a source of major impact on the poultry industry. The length of the Little Flint plant stacks which would disperse the gases and ash into the atmosphere has also been a matter of concern for the investigating scientists. Jarreil E. Southall, chief of the Air Pollution Control Division of the Arkansas Department of Pollution Control and E c o l o g y , objects to the SWEPCO construction proposal Four Youths, Adull Face Charges A 29-year-old Missouri man Us being held by Fayetteville police for 'investigation o sodomy after four local youths told police of an incident at a local motel. The four youths were also arrested in connec lion with a bdeak-in early Sat urday at a liquor store. The name of the man is beinj withheld pending the filing o formal charges. Police said they learned o the burglary at 12:34 a.m Saturday when the alarm a Mack's Liquor Store,, 407 S School Ave.. sounded'at polic headquarters.

"The data developed for and ncorporated in the SWEPCO eport is inaccurate. Errors rithmetic and data copying are o common as to-make use o he data difficult and at time., mpossible," Aley has testifiec o the APSC. Aley found that sometimes a; much as" 50 'per cent of the. addition values in the SWEPCO data and 38 per cent of thi data values were in error. In one section of his testi mony, Aley'- refers to : 1WEPCO error concerning laki area. " · "The SWEPCO report base cooling for the plant on a lak area of six-tenths of a squar mile. There are 640 acres in a square mile and six-tenths o a square mile equals 384 acres This is 147 acres less than th 531 acres of lake discussed else where in the narrative," Ale says.

My field observations and analysis indicate [hat there is insufficient water Tor the proposed cooling lake. This indicates that the system for the power plant, as proposed, is not feasible," Aley ends his testimony to the APSC. The testimonies also touch on the SWEPCO claim that only low-sulfur coal will be burned at the plant in compliance with air pollution standards. : john Turk, general manager o f . al! SWEPCO. plants, has said that the low-sulfur Wyoming coal is dedicated, by short form, to SWEPCO and that lands- from which the coal will be mined have been set aside. John Fagerstrom, professor of geology at the University of Nebraska, has testified to the APSC that sampling at the Wyoming coal site has not been properly conducted, "There are no specifics in the SWEPCO environmental report of the fcpal supply. agreement At Tuesday Meeting Directors To Study Change In 'A proposed ordinance, which could force citizens to clean up iclr own properly or liiive it one for them, is to be considered by the Fuycllcville Board of Directors Tuesdny night. The item is among 15 on the lengthy agenda. The ordinance, which would amend Section 12-2 of the City Jode, would make it unlawful or the owner or occupant of i' -residential structure to use nei premises for the Open storage of any "abandoned motor vehicle, ice box, refrigerator, stove, glass, building ma- erial, building rubbish or sirni- ar items" or allow the accumulation or "weeds, dead trees, trash, garbage, etc." Should the ordinance be vio- aled. the owner or occupant Would be allowed 20 days in vhich to correct the situation. f the conditions are not Simon Denies Part In Oil Firm Profits HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) -- 'reasury Secretary William E. Jimon said Saturday said he iad-no part in a Federal Energy Office regulation . that allowed at least 10 major oil- companies unwarranted -price increases last winter. Simon, who headed that of- ice at the time, met with Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark. t here. ind the two flew to Washington or talks on the economy. Before departing, reporters questioned Simon about the obscure regulation which may lave resulted in a gain of $300 million or more by the oil companies. "It was never brought to my ittenlion while I was at the F'EO," Simon said. "I learned about it a week ago.

A former political associate of Nixon, the Times said, received a long, rambling tele. phone call from the former president last Thursday. The Times said Nixon spent about 20 minutes complaining about President Ford's handling of his office thus far, listing "the things he (Ford) had done and hadn't done." The Times also concluded that Ford's decision to pardon Nixon was based mainly on health reasons. It quoted an associate of the President as saying: "It's obvious that someone : { spoke- to Ford and described ~ Nixon's condition as very e grave, very serious." n J d Pottery Exhibit- Set e A p o t t e r y exhibit by 1 Robert Gill of Dell will be on ^ display in the -Arkansas Union ·J G a l l e r y Monday through J l Friday.

According to the proposed ordinance, after hearing the case, the Municipal judge would have the authority to direct the City Manager, or his representative, to do whatever s necessary to correct the situation apd assess the costs of correction against the owner or occupant. DEVELOPMENT STUDIES The .hoard will also consider an amendment to an ordinance dealing with large scale development plans. The amendment would allow the rejection of such a plan if it docs not provide "sufficient ingress and e g r e s s for the proposed development necessary to avoid creating or compounding a dangerous traffic situation. Pressure (CONTINUED TKONS PAGE ONE) ly, however, the board does not want interest rates to go any higher. The state of the economy -and the nature of the problem facing the President in his first five weeks -- was griml'ey described last week by Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. "It's obvious the economy ia not in good shape," he told labor, .leaders. "We are confronted ,. with : a very dull and perhaps- easing , economy . . , and' confronted still with a high rate of inflation.". · · New (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) added that County Judge Vol Lester had pledged support to providing additional court room space. Jones quoted Lester as saying the vault recently added to the courthouse was built so that additional courtrooms could be added above the vault on the same level as the current courtrooms. Jones described the current court facilities as "a disgrace." He said there was no lolding jail for criminals, no witness rooms and many other tacilities are lacking. Jones said there was a move in the last session of the General Assembly to redistric the entire state. That move didn't "get off the ground," he said, and caused a lot of prob : ,ems. However, that legislature granted additional courts a Fort Smith and Texarkana so there will not be a lot of pressure from metropolitan centers this sesison, he said. He feels that the chances of the second Circuit Court being granted are extremely - gooc since the case load in Washington Circuit Court is one of the top two or three in the stale. Both chancery and circui districts are determined by the state legislature and normally follow county lines. Some districts are made up of severa counties, and some counties have more than one district within the county. For example. Pulaski Circuit Court is composed of three civil and two criminal courts. "It is essential," Jones sale "that, the Circuit Court be divided immediately." Original plans of the county bar association was to ask the legislature only for a seconc Circuit Court. "But as we began studying the · caseloads, we found "the Chancery Court is in trouble too," Jones said. Jones said a 90-day delay after attorneys for both sides of a case are preoared is common and some .drag on as long as two years. Crimina cases, of course, have a priority in Circuit Court which causes civil cases to be delayed. Prosecuting Attorney Mahlon Gibson said that the heavy caseload for Circuit Court necessitated, his. dropping some marginal artd minor 'crimina charges since it is -imoossibl tor the court to. grant a "speedy" trial!
