EPA denies plea
to delay pollution
controls in cars
By The Associated Press
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head Wil-
liam Ruckelshaus yesterday turned down requests from
the auto industry for a one-year delay of 1975 anti-pollu-
tion standards.
Under the 1970 Clean Air Act Amendments, automobile
emissions of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons have to-be
reduced in 1975-model cars by 90 per cent from their 1970
But the law permitted Ruckelshaus to grant a one-
year extension if he found the deadline could not be met
despite "good faith" efforts by the auto makers.
Peter Kahn, executive director of Citizens for Clean
Air, said, "What this means for urban areas where there
are enormous numbers of fleet vehicles is an enormous

New congressional districts
for state ordered judge

By The Associated Press
U.S. District Judge Damon
Keith, tired of legislative delays,
has ordered a realignment of the
state's congressional districts
under a Democratic plan de-
signed to cut the Republican ad-
vantage from 12-7 to 10-9.
The new apportionment alters

incumbent Republican Marvin

Meanwhile, Republican mem-
bers of the Commission on
Legislative Apportionment have
balked at a State Supreme Court
order to vote for adoption of a
Democratic plan for the state's
110 House and 38 Senate seats.
Chief Justice Thomas Kav-

However, state elections of-
ficials said they couldn't wait
indefinitely. Boundary lines have
to be set well in advance of the
Aug. 8 primary.
Keith heard arguments in
April on Republican and Demo-
cratic plans and then waited to
see whether the Legislature
would agree to anything.

He finally ordered the Demo-
cratic plan adopted, which was
superior to three Republican
proposals on the basis of popula-
tion equality among districts.
The new Second Congressional
District includes Ann Arbor; all
of Monroe County except for
Carleton Township; the cities
and townships of Northville and
Plymouth; and much of Livonia.
