Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Sept. 18, 1974 FAYETTEVIULE, ARKANSAS Sierra Club Head Says Energy Prices Must Include All Costs HOUSTON (AP) -- The presi-! dent ot the Sierra Club said Monday energy prices eventually must include all the costs ot energy production. "Wo recognize, however, that a sudden and drastic increase in- energy prices now would place intolerable new financial burdens on consumers and would lie added fuel for inflation," said Kent Gill of Davis, Calif. "Therefore, energy prices must reach their plateau over a . period of time." Gill testified at the opening of the seventh of 10 Project Independence regional hearing; . planned by the Federal Energy Administration, The FEA is cle veloping an energy self-sufficiency blueprint for submission to President Ford. Gill, making his first appear ance at one of the hearings disagreed with a number of in duslry witnesses who said oil's 22 per cent depletion tax allow ance must be retained if no strengthened. "The existing depletion allow ance must be phased put, am we should institute in its plac a depletion charge on non-re ncwable resource extraction t fund development of replace m sin t r e n e w a b l e energ; sources," Gill said. D.A. McGee, board chairma of Kerr-McGee Oil Corp., Okla homa City, said current threat to phase out the allowanc form only one of many congres sional proposals and federa regulatory practices that ar hindering the nation's energ supply problems. McGee was asked to nam two or three such practices h considers particularly aggra vating. "I don't think I could limit to two or three," McGee re plied. Texas Atty. Gen. John Hi was unable to attend but sul milted a written statement sa; ing the federal governmen should not be involved in thre areas significant to nationa energy policy. Hill said any proposal at th federal level to takeover cu rent responsibilities of state o and gas regulatory agencie should be abandoned and tha oil produced from siale-owne lands should be exempt frorr federal price regulation. "The national governmen should also resist the iegislatio to expand Federal Power Com mission jurisdiction to regulat interstate sales of natural gas. Hill said. "The FPC regulation of i terstate natural gas wou damage new production of n al gas and further matural el shortages In Texas. W. Hollic Hopper of In (fm Sdoek anapolis, Intl., president of JAX Coal Co., said the early use of urgency in Project In- ependence seems to have dis- ipeared substantially since e end of the Arab oil cmbar "The switch of utility plants coal during the embargi isis has been almost totall; jversed in a few shor lonlhs," Hopper said. "To thi al industry this Is dis ppointing evidence of a lack of ommilment by government to meaningful steps in achieving roject Independence. With no pparent evidence of retreat rom oil price levels of early 974 we are at a loss to under- tand this flight from utilization f coal." C. J. Bonnecarrere, Baton louge, La., said it is time for onprortucing states to start de- eloping their potential re- ources. 'No other state has been as generous as Louisiana in shar- ng its vast natural resources vith her sister states," saic ionnecarrere, secretary of the xniisiana State Mineral Board. "But her treasure is dwindl- ng rapidly. No longer can Louisiana afford to export much of her life blood out-of state. Not that she doesn't wint o, it's - just that there isn' much more to share." By HARRY VANDERGR1FF Superintendent Tiie purpose of physical education schools in the Elementary is to insure that the schools ave working toward the education of the total child. All of the skills a child needs to succeed in school involve various muscle groups of the body working in coordination. In reading the ability to track and in writing the ability to make symbols require a fine motor coordination that can be learned and improved through physical education. The need for a child to achieve and maintain a good' level of physical fitness cannot be over- nphasized.
