Compromise oil

WASHINGTON (P) - President Ford
sent to Congress a compromise energy
bill yesterday that lays the foundation
for a windfall profits tax on U.S. oil and
a gradual price hike on gasoline to con-
Congressional leaders expressed mixed
reactions about the- new program, and
Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), chairman
of the energy and power subcommittee,
said he would try to make modifica-
"TRUST EVERYBODY, but cut the
cards yourself," said Dingell, whose oil
policy bill goes into the second week of
debate next week.
Speaker Carl Albert, returning from
a meeting at the White House, com-
mented, "This is the best compromise
we can get out of them."
Sen. Henry Jackson, chairman of the
Interior Committee, remarked, "It's just
more of the same and I don't see the
Democrats buying it."
FORD, appearing in the White House
briefing room, said the nation "desper-
ately needs cooperation, not confronta-
tion, on the critical issue."
Ford, who had wanted price controls
removed more quickly, proposed phasing
them out over a 39-month period and
setting a price ceiling of from $11.50 to
$13.50 a barrel on all domestically pro-
duced crude oil.
This represents a rollback on all cur-
rent uncontrolled oil prices, but the
$11.50 per barrel ceiling would gradually
increase by five cents a month over the
length of the program which runs
through Nov. 30, 1978.
"THIS CEILING will assure that fu-
ture increase in the price of imported oil
will not affect our domestic market
prices," said Ford. He also called his
plan "a critical first step in reversing
our growing dependence on foreign oil."

stronauts hospitalized in Hawaii

HONOLT LU, Hawaii} IP) - The three Apollo astronauts
were hospitalized in the Tripler Army Hospital yesterday
for treatment of lung irritation caused by inhaling gas that
filled theirspacecraft Thursday during its return to earth.
Astronauts Thomas, Stafford, Vance Brand and Donald
"Deke" Slayton were in "no immediate danger" but may
have been exposed to an insidious poison gas that can have
a delayed and serious effect, such as pneumonia, doctors
DOCTORS SAID the hospitalization was to determine the
extent of the lung irritation.
The astronauts were described as "happy and smiling"
as they entered the hospital. Officials said they were taken
to the intensive care ward, but only because of the equip-
ment available there for their treatment,
Officials said the astronauts may have been exposed. for

9 to 11 minutes to a rocket fuel oxidizer known as nitrogen
tetroxide. A gas filled their cabin as the spacecraft de-
scended toward splashdown.
NITROGEN tetroxide is described in medical books as
"one of the most insidious gases, which can cause only
slight pain upon initial contact but that possibly lead to
serious lung congestion several days later.
In effect, the hospitalization was ordered to determine if
these effects develop.
Stafford, the spacecraft commander, asked officials to
notify the astronauts' wives and "tell them we're feeling
pretty good."
GAS STREAMED into the space cabin as the Apollo space-
craft fell toward the Pacific Ocean splashdown 330 miles
west of here.
