Tandem tanker travel
restricted by new rules

LANSING (UPI) - Emergency rules
to implement the state's recently-
enacted ban on tandem tankers
carrying highly flammable cargoes
were filed yesterday with the Secretary
of State's office.
The stop-gap measures are designed
to tide the state over until permanent
rules can be drafted, subject to the ap-
proval by the legislature, Gov. William
Milliken said.
THE EMERGENCY rules clarify a
confusing point of the new law which
left it uncertain whether tandem
tankers carrying highly flammable
loads must be equipped with certain
safety modifications before a Nov. 1
deadline.
The rules, filed by the Fire Marshall
Division of the Michigan State Police,
specify that the "retrofit"
modifications are among safety equip-
ment required by that date.
The rules also restrict tandem

tankers hauling gasoline or other highly
flammable liquids in Wayne, Oakland
and Macomb counties to certain limited
access highways between midnight and
6 a.m.
TANDEM TANKERS carrying less
flammable materials are not restric-
ted.
The rules also specify that single-
bottom tankers capable of carrying
more than 9,000 gallons of highly flam-
mable liquid are subject to the same
time and route restrictions as double-
bottoms.
Milliken repeated his call for safety
modifications for all tandem tankers in
Michigan, not just for those carrying
highly flammable cargoes.
The average height of American men
is now 5 feet 9 inches and of women 5
feet 3.6 inches, according to National
Geographic.

A MECHANICAL CLAW mounted on a bulldozer places a dead cow into the con-
troversial burial pit at Mio yesterday afternoon. The animal had been among
the first live cattle to be delivered to the site and then slaughtered there.
PBB-contaminated cattle
ke buried in Mio pit

MIO (UPI) - The first shipment of
live PBB-contaminated cattle were
slaughtered at the state's controversial
burial pit yesterday as area residents
asked the Michigan Supreme Court to
reconsider its decision in favor of the
program.
About 20 animals which hadbeen held
in state-leased pens at the Diamond K
Ranch in Fremont were unloaded from
trucks, given a tranquilizing injection,
shot with a pistol and hauled to the clay-
lined pit north of Mmo.-
OFFICIALS EXPECTED 200 live
animals would arrive at the pit yester-
day., Any that were,,;, immediately
slaughtered and buriedwere to belkept
in a holding corral, where water and

feed were available.
State Police reportedly escorted two
Mio-area residents from the corral, but
did not make arrests. They were iden-
tified as members of the group fighting
the disposal site.
Yesterday's shipment represented
the fist of hundreds of live animals con-
demned under Michigan's PBB law to
be shipped to the disposal site. Earlier,
about 1,200 barrels containing frozen
carcasses were dumped in the pit.
Norris McDowell, a spokesman for
the state RDepartment of Natural
Resources, said slaughter and disposal
of the more than 900 animals from the
Diamond K should be completed by the
enddf'the week. If the pit is full, it will
be capped; if not, officials will cover
the animals with dirt and wait for more.
