Oil Exec Testifies Motorists Told To Forget About Cheap Fuel HOUSTON (AP) -- An Oklahoma oil executive says inolor- isls can forget about 35-ccnl gasoline. Jack Tamer, a Phillips Petroleum Co. vice president, told a panel uf Federal Energy Administration officials Tuesday [lie general public is mistaken by t h i n k i n g the self-sufficiency objectives of Project Independence will mean a return to lower pi-ices. He said higher costs arc ahead and federal planners must convince the public this is true. Tamer testified bluntly at the third of 10 regional hearings Klan Organizers Heading For Boston In Bus Furor BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -A Ku Klux Klan leader says Klan organizers are heading for Boston to join the uproar there over school busing, which he called a turning point in resistance to "forced race mixing." David Duke, 23, state grand dragon of the Knights of the Ku Klux K l a n , said Tuesday that about 300 Klansmen will aid whites protesting a federal court order that about one-fifth of Bostons 94,000 school children be bused to achieve more racial integration in public schools. The decision sparked sonic turmoil there last week, but attendance was up slightly Tuesday and the city relatively quiet. "I would like to stress we are not going to Boston to start trouble or violence but to effectively . organize the while people," Duke said. "So far they have been an amorphous mob." Duke's group is among a dozen or so descendants of the old terrorist KICK organization. But Duke said if Boston police continue to prevent public demonstrations against busing, many people "will be forced into a more violent position than they are now in." The youthful leader said his Klan has "engaged a lawyei and plans to sue the city ol Boston for $10 million if 'thej continue to try to restrict our civil rights." Savoring the irony, Duke sau the Knights had organized a re verse of the "Freedom Rides' of the middle '50s and earlj '60s in which Northern college students went South to work foi in (eg rati on. He said 45 to 50 Klansmen al eady in Boston take credit for assling Sen. Edward M. Ken- .edy, D-Mass., last week when ic tried to address an anti-bus- ng crowd. Kennedy, booed and .cckled, sought refuge in the nuiiLCipal building. There \vas no way to check he progress or effectiveness of h e n e w "Freedom H i d e s Morlh." The KICK splinter groups are all secretive oboul membership and operations. Duke said about 160 Klansmen plan to go to Boston from jight Southern states, traveling ;eparately, with "probably an iqual number from Northern states and areas around Boson." He said they will wear no ·obes or hoods. "We feel like Boston is a sig- lal, a turning point in this figh igainst forced race mixing,' Duke said.

Magnuson Wins Extension 01 Senate Career liy THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Democrat Warren G. Magnu;on of Washington has won re- lominaliun for a six-year ex- ension of his 30-year career in lie U.S. Senate. The 69-year-old chairman of lie Senate Commerce Committee was a land-slide winner or the Democratic nomination Washington's primary elcc- i on Tuesday as he turned ack a token challenge by per- mnial candidate John Patric. Magnuson will he matched in he November general election igainst state Sen. Jack Melcalf, who whipped five oppo icnls on the GOP side. In Oklahoma's Democratic run-off primary, former Rep Sd Edmonson was an easy win ncr for the Senate nomination wcr Charles Nesbitt, chairman of the state's Corporation Com nission. Oklahoma Democrats also se lected David Boren, a 33-year old college professor, as thei nominee to succeed incumben Democratic Gov. David Hal eliminated in the state's Aug 27 orimary. Boren, whose run-off oppo u e n t w a s R e p . Clem McSpadden, will meet Rcpubli can slate Sen. James Inhofe ir the November general election If Boren wins, he would be come the youngest governor i Oklahoma history. Edmonson' November opponents will be in cumbent Henry L. Bellmon an independent Paul Trent. In Washington, election off cials said only 25 to 30 per cen of the state's 1.9 million regis tered voters turned out for th election, which featured on! one statewide race, the Magnu son-Patric match-up. They sai it was by far one of the wors voter turnouts in history. rough which the FEA hopes 5 develop a definition of ener- y independence. "This is a most i m p o r t a n t efinition," lie said. "Presently, ic public generally considers the government's program energy independence will crmit returning to the old ays of unlimited energy use y eacli citizen at low prices, rices in thu order of 15 cents or gas at the wellhead and 35 ents for automobile gasoline at ic station pump. There is no ;ay this nation can return to at situation." Tarncr said energy independ- nce can only mean the federal government will work w i t h in- ustry in an attempt to provide ach citizen a necessary but easonable amount ol energy, 'lie prices ot such energy, he idded, will be high enough to jrovide sufficient earnings for einvestment in new facilities o that reasonable supplies can :ontinue in future years. He said such supplies can in r olve coal gasification and li- [uefaction and shale oil. "All of these can only he pro 'ided at a higher cost," he ;aid. "Government agencies iced to make sure it is so un lerstood by the citizen.' 1 Tarncr said the official notice or the regional hearings shows lie FEA is fully aware of whai las caused the energy problem "The U.S. demand for energy s increasing at a rate whicl cannot be-met by continuing to rely on tbe historic sources o oil and gas supplies," he said. J. E. Finley, Houston, Conti lental Oil Co. executive via ^resident, said a national ener y policy must be developed I «uide industry and govcrnmcn alike in the effort to move a rapidly as possible towaix maximum energy indepenc ence. · "This effort toward self-suffi ciency must provide for an 01 derly development of oil an natural gas, coal, oil shale, m clear power, and all othe forms of available energy, Finley said. "The mix betwee these alternatives must be function of cost and resourc availability." "By cost," Finley added, mean all costs; the social cos of greater conservation; the d rect cost of trade imbalance the environmental costs attem it to resource recovery and onversion." Robert A. Dean, Midland, ex., blamed government inter- rence for the energy shortage ud for depleting the ranks of [dependent operators who ave traditionally discovered 75 i 35 per cent of all domestic il and gas reserves. "If we were short of oil and as because there were no lore reserves, t h a t would be le thing," said Dean, repre- enting four area trade groups or Texas independents. "The fact is we have estt mates of over 400 billion bar rcls of crude oil reserves anc 2,01)0 trillion cubic feet of n a t u ral gas reserves yet to be dis covered in the United Slates." He said over one-half of Ihe undiscovered reserves are on shore in the lower 48 states. "Our problem then is not a scarcity of f u t u r e resources but a ' government's continua interfering, which prevents th( independent operator from looking for, and finding, those desperately needed reserves." Federal Grant Received For Training Program On Aging The University of Arkansas las received a grant of $50,000 n federal f u n d s from the department of Health, Education and Welfare through the Arkansas State Office on Aging to conduct a training program for persons who work with the ag- 1 Director of the program is Dr. Kent Rice, associate professor of sociology. He will be assisted by Dr. Daniel Fen-it or, chairman of the Department of Sociology, Robert Snarr, research associate in the Division of Community affairs and John King, assistant professor of olunleers who deal with olde icrsons. Rice said the goal was t rain at least 381 workers, bu hat the number could reac 00 to 900 if volunteer and othe vorkers on the local evels tak idvantagc of the training pro ram. "The main objective of th jrogram," Dr. Rice said, "i ,o increase the performanc skills of workers so they ca letter recognize the needs o the elderly and provide an im provement in the quality .heir life." The University of Arkansa .earn will coordinate its effor with the Slate Office of Agin social welfare. 'I 3 grant is to be used, Dr. Rice said, to conduct a series of shorl institutes and consultation programs "designed to increase skills of people in work in Ihe programs for aged in Ihe programs for aged in Ihe state." The grant is for a one-year period from this past July 1 through next June 30. There are several diffcrciv groups of workers who wil benefit from the training, Rice ! said. They include personnel of the State Office on Aging in Little Rock, staff members from the eight area offices, personnel from local programs in the state financed by funds under the older Americans Act, and community and county workers and ind the regional office in Da las.

Two of these will be in Northwest Arkansas, Washington and Newton Coun ties; two in East Arkansas, anc the f i f t h in the Little Rock area imcd at serving rural Iminl- rants who move to that area ? seek work but cannot find , because of their poor reading nd communication capacity.
