Kendrick, Jr., 18, of 348 N. Washington Ave., No Substitute For Oil Seen WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tt:C Federal Energy Administration has tentatively concluded that the United Slates cannot be independent ot imported oil because no substitutes for oil are in sight, the Washington Post said in its Wednesday editions. The agency, in a draft of its Blueprint for Project Independence, contends that coal is no substitute for oil because it is :oo difficult to burn and mine and that atomic power is only a substitute for coal, not oil, the Post said. Synthetic fuels, solar energy and geothermal power provide no early relief from imported oil because they are at least 10 years away from making even the smallest impact on energy use, the Post quoted the draft as saying. Project Independence was announced by former President Richard M. Nixon as the overall plan designed to free the United Slates of its dependence on imported oil by 1985. Other government officials said later, however, that the actual goal was to reduce the amount of oil imports rather than end them entirely. The Post said the Project Independence blueprint, scheduled to be made public in its final form Nov. 7. concludes that even the oil produced by all-out drilling in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and the Gulf of Alaska would free the nation from imports years' time. Deep-drilled Sawhill Still Presses For Conservation WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal Energy Administrator John Sawhill says he will continue to press a campaign for energy conservation despite "a Ittle concern" in the Ford administration that he is too outspoken on the issue. Sawhill said Tuesday he has iv£n up hopes for a gasoline lax "because the President has said there would not be a gasoline tax as long as he is in the White House." But he said he still favors a horsepower tax or similar measures to stimulate improvements in automobile fuel economy. In a vention of speech at a con- the American Gas for only a few domestic oil ors in attendance to answer uestions. Responding to a statement rom Kathy Okonski that by .udying herbicides the Univer- ity is promoting them, Dr. Bisop said he disagreed. Admitting that the term weed" is a difficult one to efine since plants are weeds epending upon their location. Dr. Bishop told the group that erhaps the chair's purpose night be stated in other words. He said he felt the chair would pleaded guilty Tuesday in Washington Circuit Court to charges of burglary and 'grand larceny. Judge Maupin Cummings sentenced Kendrick to spend one day in the state prison with his parents and thereafter to present a written report of his .mpressions of the prison to the court. C u m m i n g s also ordered Kendrick to go back to school or obtain steady employment. He kept the matter under advisement for two years. Kendrick was arrested Oct. 3, along with Otto H. Zinke HI, 18, of 817 N. Jackson Ave., after Fayetteville police received an early morning call concerning a break-in at the Economy Liquor Store at 1444 W. 6th St. Police found that a large plate glass window in the store had been smashed.

The store owner told police that four half-gallon bottles of bourbon were missing from the store. would be even more expensive than foreign oil, the Post quoted the draft as saying. A car answering the Ford Associatio.i, he inserted a reaffirmation of his dedicatio nlo energy conservation. In his speech. Sawhill-repeated his support for moves to end federal regulation over the production prices of interstate natural gas. He also repeated his Apposition to proposals for establishment of a federal pro- grain to allocate natural gas. Speaking with newsmen later, he said the administration seemed to have "a little concern that I was a little too outspoken a'bout the need for energy conservation." But he denied that he is being pressured to quit his job. "I have felt no pressure to quit," Sawhill said when asked about a report in Newsweek magazine saying that President Ford, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Treasury Secretary William Simon and Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton want Sawhill removed because of his advocacy of a gasoline tax and other tough energyrsav- ing measures.
