Normal relations with
China Carter's intent
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter has told an international
business group that his administration
intends to move toward normal
relations with China while maintaining
aid to Taiwan.
Sources close to the Trilateral Com-
mission said Carter emphasized in a
talk Monday that the United States is
opposed to China's use of force in any
effort to reunite Taiwan with the

YESTERDAY'S EPA RULING replacing the name "smog" with "ozone" may
give Ann Arbor a break in its air pollution control efforts.
No more smog; it will
be ozone from now on
From AP and UPI
Smog died yesterday. Smog's death
was attributed to bureaucratic fiat.
'Well known to many city dwellers, he
was believed to be in his late 30s.
Smog's final passage was announced
by Douglas Costle, administrator of the
Environmental Protection Agency
A CURIOUS mixture that defied
analysis, Smog was born in London in
the 1940s. He was the son of Smoke and
Fog, once pillars of British society.
But smog is not really dead; his name
was just discarded and replaced with
ozone. At the same time, the EPA ruled
to allow more of the stuff in the air,
before making it illegal.
The EPA also in effect gave several
south central Michigan cities - in-
cluding Ann Arbor - a break on their
air pollution control efforts.
THE AGENCY said smog would now
officially be called ozone, the only com-
ponent of smog which scientists
measure and the one on which com-
pliance with the law is based.
In the past, the agency had used the
term "photochemical oxidents" to
describe what happens when hydrocar-
bon and nitrogen dioxide from car
exhaust and other sources are exposed
The primary standard for ozone
would be .10 parts per million per hour,
compared to a level of .08 which has
been in effect since 1971.
EPA SAID some of the 103 cities with
populations over 200,000 which it iden-
tified last March as not meeting the
existing ozone standard now would be
Besides Ann Arbor, they are Pueblo
and Colorado Springs, Colo.; the Cen-
tral Florida area including Orlando;
Omaha, Neb.; and the South Central
Michigan area including Lansing,
Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.
EPA Administrator Douglas Costle
said, "New health effects data, as well
as a better understanding of existing
data, calls for this change in the stan-
