SEN. ALAN CRANSTON (D-Calif.) arrives at the Capitol recently
in a Pedicar powered by foot pedals. The car has five forward
speeds plus neutral and reverse. The manufacturer claims the
drive system is fifty per cent more efficient than the most advanced
cycling-type drive on the market today. Senator Cranston peddled
the vehicle to the Capitol and back to his office for the trial run.
Proxmire suggests
official limousines
should be cut back

WASHINGTON ')1 - Sen. Wil-
liam Proxmire (D-Wisc.), w h o
jogs to work, wants to put the
brakes on the chauffeured limou-
sines carrying government offic-
ials around Washington.
Proxmire says that if funds for
low-income housing and farmers
are cut back and controls are put
on wages, funds used to chauffeur
commuting officials ought to be
cut back too.
THE OFFICIALS who use the
limousines between home a n d
office during rush hour and to
attend social functions at night
argue there io nothing ittegal
ahout therrides. And, they say,
the chauffeured ride saves time.
'I don't believe I'm breaking
the law," Selective Service Di-
rector Byron Pepitone said about
his use of a driver. "My hours
are such that I need this car.
Until it's proven illegal I intend
to do what I'm doing."
Proxmire is chairman of an ap-
propriations subcommittee over-
seeing the budgets of several in-
dependent agencies and plans to
limit their spending for officials'
federal cars.
THE AGENCIES estimate a
chauffeured car, its maintenance
and wages for a driver begin at
$10,000. A driver's overtime can
double the cost. A Proxmire aide
views the agency figures as con-
No agency is willing to volun-
tarily eliminate limousine funds.
James Fletcher, head of the
National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA), argues
that his chauffeured limousine
saves taxpayers' money.

"I FEEL the trade off between
the hour and a half it would take
me to drive to and from work,
and the hour and one half of
work I get done by being driven
there, the taxpayer is getting
more than his money's worth,"
said Fletcher.
"I think you would find you
coutd do yourwork quicker and
more clearly if you walked a lot
of the way or ran," Proxmire
told Fletcher, who lives 14 miles
from his NASA office. "I find,
on the basis of my own exper-
ience, it clears the mind and
cleanses the soul "
The Securities and Exchange
Commission says it has one
chauffeured car for all f o u r
commissioners and the National
Science Foundation says it has
one. They both claim the cars
do not take officials home but
are used at times to carry them
to official social functions.
