What's less than 31/2 inches high, five inches long or .007 of an inch
thick, and goes through the mail? Beginning July 15, the answer will
be nothing. That's when the U.S. Postal Service will put into effect size
standards prohibiting sending of letters in small envelopes, and
levying an extra tariff on extra-large correspondences. Russell
Hoseney, mailing requirements clerk at the TAnn Arbor PosOffice,
says the standards will definitely speed up mail service. "It works te
same as zip code. If you don't have the number, then the mail has to be
sorted by hand." Maybe next we'll have standard sizes for mailboxes.

Tens of thousands of anti-war protesters marched in New York
City and in Chicago on April 6, 1969, in the largest demonstration
against the Vietnam war since October, 1967. Police arrested six
people who were part of the Central Park crowd of 50,000, while 20,000
marched without incident in Chicago. Protesters donned black arm
bands emblazoned with "33,000," symbolizing the number of
American deaths in Vietnam.

Nuclear
danger lower;
electric bills
may increase
tFrom The Associated Press
A federal nuclear expert said yester-
day that dissolved gas is gradually
being bled from the primary coolant
system at Three Mile Island, lessening
the danger that a new hydrogen bubble
will reoccur in the reactor.
While experts at the scene are trying
to keep the situation under control,
nearby residents are concerned that the
accident may cause a 20 per cent or
more hike in their electric bills, accor-
ding to federal and power company of-
ficials.
ROBERT BERNERO of the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission <(NRC) said
that as each volume of gas is dissolved,
it relieves pressure in the reactor and
the chances decline that a bubble would
reform.
"They're removing the gas. It's
coming out," said Bernero, describing
the process as slow but sure.
Removing gas from the coolant
allows technicians to lower the
pressure in the reactor vessel. If the
gas were not removed, it is possible
that a decrease in pressure would allow
a bubble to form again, Bernero said.
BUT HE SAID engineers also fear
that if the degasification and
depressuring operation were speeded
up, it might prompt reappearance of a
gas bubble.
In recent days, the pressure level in
the reactor has been reduced from 1,200
pounds per square inch to about 950 psi,
as of midday yesterday.
IN WASHINGTON, there were pub-
lished reports that the NRC was con-
cerned that the bubble would reoccur as
depressuring continued, and that a
"Bubble Group" at NRC was attem-
pting to determine what made the first
bubble disappear early this week.
"There is a lot of dissolved gas in the
primary coolant system," Bernaro
said. In the current go slow operation,
technicians are running the coolant out
of the reactor into an auxiliary
building, where the pressure on the
coolant water is relieved slightly.
Meanwhile, senior members of the
Senate Environment Committee urged
President Carter to hold off sending
Congress his legislative proposals to
speed up the licensing of nuclear power
plants.
,THEY WROTE the president that it
would be "ill advised" until major
safety issues raised by the Three Mile
accident are resolved. The committee
has jurisdiction over nuclear energy
issues.
Hazel Rollins, deputy economy ad-
ministrator for the Energy Depar-
tment, said consumers served by the
damaged plant near Harrisburg, who
41 w pay an average electric bill of $35
$40 a month can expect to pay at least
$7.50 more - about a 20 per cent boost.
She said the added costs will pay for
fuel that must be purchased to generate
electricity lost from the crippled power
plant.
REPLACEMENT FUEL now costs
some $60,000 a day but she said this
figure could rise to $900,000 by this
summer with the seasonal increase in
demand for electricity #d with ever
increasing oil costs.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.),
said that this might drive up electric
bills for the area's consumers to as high
as 35 per cent by the summer.
"Just when they had gotten the
positive news of being relieved from a

health danger they get the news today
that their utility bill is going up 25 to 35
per cent," Kennedy said.
A la yer representing Metropolitan
Edison, which operates the Three Mile
Island plant, agreed that consumers
would pick up the tab. He said this was
also the case in the recent decision by
the Nuclear RegulatoryrCommission to
shut down five other reactors in the
East to test theur earthquake resistan-

M.A. IN P .BLIC POLICY STUDIES
at the
UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO
The Committee on Public Policy Studies is a formal academic unit of The University of
Chicago, offering a graduate master's degree program which focuses on preparation for a
wide variety of careers. The Committee does not automatically assume that government
solutions are the preferred solutions to public policy problems. Its program presupposes a
role for the private sector as well as the public sector, in solving public policy problems, and
assumes that public policy leadership requires an understanding of both arenas and of the
complex economic and social framework within which public policy operates.
The Committee on Public Policy Studies offers a new two year program leading to the
Master of Arts degree in Public Policy Studies. Major components of the program include
Analytic Courses in Economics, Political Analysis, Statistics, and Decision Analysis; a range
of Applications Courses offered by the Committee and the other departments and profes-
sional schools of the University; a series of Policy and Research Seminars devoted to the
scholarly, interdisciplinary investigation of specific public policy issues; and Internships in
the public and private sectors.

Applications for Fall Quarter 1979 will be acceptied until August 15.

In keeping with its long-standing traditions and policies, the University of Chicago, in admissions,
employment, and access to programs, considers students on the basis of individual merit and
without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national or ethnic origin, handicap, or other factors
irrelevant to fruitful participation in the programs of the University. The Affirmative Action
Officer is the University official responsible for coordinating its adherence to this policy, and the
related Federal and State laws and regulations (including Section 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of
1973, as amended).

Gasoline breakdown

4

Ever wonder how much of your gasoline dollar winds up in a
foreign country, and how much winds up in the bank accounts of oil
companies? Although experts are unwilling to generalize, those who
will say the biggest chunk of the 72 cent average price per gallon goes
for the oil from which gasoline is made - about 32 cents, or 45 per
cent. State and local excise taxes are the second biggest component.
The-taxes vary from state to state, but in general account for 14 per
cent of the 72 cents. Gasoline dealers are limited to profits frozen at
the May, 1973 level - before the Arab oil embargo caused havoc on
petroleum markets - plus three cents for inflation. Dealers rake in 13
per cent of the total. Refining accounts for 12 per cent, or almost nine
cents, and advertising and accounting costs are covered with five cen-
ts nr seven ner cent of the price for a gallon of gas. After all thesemar-
