Weather puts

pollution..alert
By The Associated Press
Concern shifted from power shortages to air pollution
yesterday as the eastern third of the country continued to
swelter in a sooty steambath. Ohio officials warned 125
plants to prepare to shut down as the smog threat height-
ened.
Air pollution alerts were in force in Pittsburgh, Wash-
ington and Baltimore. Plants were voluntarily controlling
emissions in West Vkginia. In Ohio industrial managers
were waiting to see if they would have to close up shop.
The most acute pollution problem was in a four county
section of eastern Ohio in the steel-making region of the.

SMOKESTACKS FROM a steel mill in Steubenville, Ohio add to the Ohio River Valley pollution,
nearly obscuring the hilly background. Twenty- five county industries were enjoined to restrain
from soot blowing, open burning and incinerating until the pollution level drops.

dust particles measured 906 mil-
ligrams per cubic meter. The
desired health level is 60.
With John Cashman, the Ohio
Health Department director, re-
porting that the pollution trend
"seems to be upward," 125 com-
panies were told to be ready to
cease operations should an
emergency be declared.
To the east along the Ohio
River, Gay. Arch Moore Jr. of
West Virginia said 10 industrial
firms, including three power
companies, had agreed to hold
emissions to a minimum.
The coal-burning power com-
panies, all in the state's north-
ern panhandle, delayed going to
peak load capacity until later
in the day, relying on power
transported from plants in
Michigan and Indiana to supply
extra wattage in the early hours.
Steel and chemical plants in
the parhandle around Wheeling
and Weirton also agreed to limit
operations where necessary to
curtail emissions of pollutants.
Formal alert status would be the
next step if the air quality
worsened.
A pollution alert was still in
effect in Pittsburgh, requiring
some 30 plants to cut back pro-
duction to minimize emissions.
In nearby McKeesport, a hos-
pital official reported that 30
patients had been treated for
respiratory and heart conditions
in a 2 4-hour period, a "signifi-
cant" increase above normal.

M illiken 'says

LANSING, Mich. (P) - Gov.
William Milliken said today he
believes it is "highly unlikely"
that any Detroit area students
will b bused to other distructs
now that a federal appeats court
has delayed a controversial de-
segregation order.
Milliken said he hopes the plan
remains in legal suspension "un-
til we go through all the ques-
tions. "
Meanwhile, he said, "Those of
us who believe in an integrated
society, educationally and soc-
ially, will continue to push en
these fronts. Those of us 'ho
want inte grated housing and an
integrated society had better do
it.'
Turning to a different subject,
the Republican governor said:
-President Nixon "looks to
Michigan with some optimism"
for picking up needed votes in
his fall election campaign
against Sen. George McGovern.
Nixon lost to Sen. Hubert Hum-
phrey by some 200.000 votes in
this state in 1968.
-His own and the Republican
party's support from organized
labor is improving.

Pentagon Papers trial despite
defense objections that the group
was not fairly chosen.
Attorneys for defendants Dan-
iel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo
maintained the entire panel of
100 prospective jurors did not re-
present a cross section of 'com-
munity opinion.
They also objected to the large
number of potential jurors hold-

lack of young persons on t h e

youngest panel member is a
woman bank employe who is in
her late 20s.
The judge refused a defense
request earlier to reveal jurors'
exact ages. The judge questioned
prospective jurors himself rath-
er than allowing the defense and
prosecution to do so.
Ellsberg and Russo, both form-
er Rand Corp. researchers who
worked on government projects,
are charged with espionage, con-
spiracy and theft in connection
with the leak to news media of
the classified Pentagon Papers.
The documents revealed orig-
ins of U.S. involvement in the
Vietnam war.
U.S. District Court J u d g e
Matt Byre, refusing to grant any
last-minute motions by the de-
fense, ordered the jurors to take
their oath, telling the panel they
were about to perform "the high-
est duty asked of an American
citizen."
Both Ellsberg and Russo said
later they still feel the jury is
not representative of the c o m-
munity, but added this does not
discourage them.
"It's a good jury ofbAmerican
citizens," said Ellsberg.
"I expect thens to listen fairly
and for their minds to be as in-
fluenced by the Pentagon Papers
as mine was."
