four-foot deep mire of hot crude
oil, foam and water yesterday'
to shut a valve on a naptha
storage tank. It was part of an
effort to snuff a stubborn refin-
ery fire that had killed six
firemen.
A Gulf spokesperson said the
blaze caused damage that may
exceed $10 million. By last
night, 36 hours after it started,
mast of the fire was extinguish-
ed but one crude oil storage
tank was still ablaze.
THE BODIES of six firemen,
missing since the flash explo-
sian late Sunday afternoon,
were recovered yesterday.
Five more firemen remained
hospitalized yesterday, four of
them in critical condition. Five
others were injured but releas-
ed following treatment.
The Penrose Avenue Bridge,
the main artery between Phila-
delphia and its international
airport, was closed to all traf-

naptha valve, spewing between
500 and 600 gallons of volatile
liquid toward the flames every
minute, came at noon yester-
day, several hours after the
fire was officially declared un-
der control at dawn.
Officials said Harry "Butch"
Koff, a man' of about 25 who
has been on Gulf's firefighting
department for six years, volun-x
teered to try to close the valve.
He and another man went out
in the boat as firemen played
water on them and on the tank
to lower temperatures estimat-
ed as high as 700 degrees.
WITH THE naptha leak snuf-
fed, only one large storage tank
of crude oil was left burning.
That, firemen said, might be
allowed to burn itself out if
other methods did not work.
Rizzo said the fire depart-
ment alone lost about $1 million
in equipment, including four
fire trucks.

"THEY (t h e businessmen)
can't quite take me seriously-
but then it's such great fun sit-
ting around a board room. The
men always look so ridiculously
uncomfortable, they don't know
what to say around me."
Avery, the first female to head
the children's hospital, is also
a major department chief in the
Harvard medical school and re-
ceived a honorary doctor of
science degree from the Uni-
versity Sunday, as keynote com-
mencement speaker.
She spoke yesterday at an
informal tea held in her honor
by the international Women's
Year Committee, Michigan Wo-
men in Science and Medical
Center Commission for Women.

UU u n equipment anu
renovation areas."
Rhodes made it clear yester-
day that belt tightening in
equipment and renovation areas
would clearly not be enough to
close the gap.
"THOSE ARE just the easy
areas," he said. "We'll have to
have some savings of funds."
He added that his office would
be conferring in the next couple
of weeks with all departments
within the University to see
wvhere further cuts can be
made. Formal proposals will be
made to the Regents at their
September meeting.
At least two members of the
Board have expressed reserva-
tions about the University going
to a deficit spending plan.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-
Grosse Pointe) said he won-
dered if the University, as a
state institution, could legally

"I DON'T KNOW if it is even
feasible to operate on a deficit
budget," said Roach.
A highly knowledgable source
in the office of state Attorney
General Frank Kelley, who de-
clined to be identified, agreed
that it would be unwise, if not
necessarily illegal, for the Uni-
versity to operate at a deficit.
"You can argue that no one
can really operate at a deficit
unless they have the power to
print money," he said. "The
term 'deficit' is so meaning-
less anyway, it's usually used
for public relations value.
"It depends how they set it
up," he explained. "It could or
it could not be (illegal)."
Rhodes, asked if the Univer-
sity's officers had considered
the constitutional question of
deficit spending said, "No, we
haven't. But you make me
nervous."

Goncalves rallies leftist support
(Continued from Page 1) support for Communist party
In making his first public ap- leader Alvaro Cunhal who, af-
pearance since the Socialists ter being menaced in Alcobaca,
and the PPD forced him to pushed on with a plan to lead
name a new, transitional gov- a rally today in the conserva-
ernment by walking out of the tice city of Porto staging area
old coalition seven weeks ago, for a wave of anti-Communist,
Goncalves selected a Commun- antigovernment and antiarmed

to take up the antileft chal- Communist officials in Lisbon

FEA sees 3-cent

force everyone to conserve fuel,
"not just the poor."
IN WASHINGTON, Zausner
said the price increases would
prompt Americans to conserve
some 700,000 barrels of oil daily
by the end of t977, compared
with what they would otherwise
use.
With other energy measures
added, the nation's oil consump-
tion by the end of 1977 could be
held about 1.5 million barrels
per day below forecast levels.
Zauzner admitted that the ad-
ministration no longer expected
to make its original deadline of
cutting demand by some two
million barrels per day by the
end of 1977, although that goal

would be reached later.
CONGRESS HAS voted to ex-
tend oil price controls beyond
the Aug. 31 expiration date, but
President Ford said he would
veto the extension and Zausner
said the administration thinks
the veto would be sustained in
Congress.
Presidential energy advisors
predicted that the price increase
would be "roughly three cents"
shortly after Ford announced
his intention Friday to veto the
bill to extend price controls.
Energy Administrator Frank
Zarb and economic advisor Alan
Greenspan said the increase
would not come quickly, but
would be a gradual rise over a
period of one to nine months.
