Action Delayed On Texarkana Firemen TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) The Texarkana Board of Directors deferred action Monday night on changing the residency requirements for city employes -- one of the demands of pick eting firemen. The board voted to wait unti City Manager Ron Copelanc and City Attorney Willis Smith Jr. can study the matter fur ther and make a recommentja tion to the board. The residency requiremen says all city employes mus live within five miles of Cit Hall. The directors indicated tha they hoped to get the report a their next meeting on Oct. 7 Neither Copeland nor Smith in dicated they anticipated diffi culty with meeting that time table. There was little discussion o Ihe matler, which Mayor Jack Trigg presented at the end o the board's regular agenda. H asked for a board member t move that the city staff be in structed to study the alterna lives. D i r e c t o r Harvey Nelson moved to delay further action pending the study and a report to the board, and the other board members unanimously agreed.

That was four days after Copeland returned from a month's leave of absence to study methods to improve motivation of employ- es to find a list of firemen's demands on his desk. The firemen also have asked for recognition of their union and pay raises. Copeland has met several times in the past few weeks with representatives of Ihe firemen, and Friday he senl firemen a letter, expressing disappointment that the differences have not been resolved.

The · hearing ontinues through Friday. D.H. Fowler, the FBA region. administrator, said the five- late area ot Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and New fiexico produced 88 per cent of le nation's natural gas in 1973. He said Louisiana sends 77 per ent of its 'gas into interstale ommerce, Texas 51 per cent. Bonnecarrere said no state ias been as generous as Loui- iana in sharing its vast nau- .ral resources with other slates. "Bu.t her treasure is dwindl- ng rapidly," he said. "No longer can Louisiana afford to ex- porl so much of her life blood iut-of-slate. Not that she doesn't want to,. It's just that here isn't much more to share. But Louisiana does have reasure of experience and inow-how which it is more than villing to share." Hobby said contingency plans must be developed, to assure distribution of supplies across the nation during the shodtages "Such planning, however should include the proviso thai ,ve are making a total 'nationa effort to provide domestic sup plies," he said. "Forty-four states cannot ex pect to drain a mere handfuj o states of their resources while making no effort- to develop own potential, to builc refineries and pipelines, to dril in their coastal waters, to min their coal." Hobby said Project Independ ence must be a national com mitment by all sectors to he more energy conscious, more energy productive, more ener gy efficient; · · "This effort requires the de dication ot the entire nation the federal government, all 5 slate governments, business, la ateau over a period of time.' Charles H. Hill, deputy direc ir of the Oklahoma Depar lent of Energy, said nations 0 11 c y must provide it ucernenfs for energy produi rs to conserve energy, re ources by maximizing reco 1 ry. . . "When the price for new it erstate natural gas shifts to ree market price, new dome c natural gas fields will b iscovered, previously margi 1 natural gas formations an atural gas processing faciliti nil become economical, ai more natural gas will enter tl iterslate market," Hill said.
