Gram farmers
hit the road to
protest embargo

From United Press International
Farmers fired up their tractors
esterday and chugged onto the roads
protest President Carter's- embargo
of grain sales to the Soviet Union, an
embargo they say will take money from
their pockets and give the Russians the
last laugh.
"We are peaceful people, but we're
madder than hell," said Don Courtney,
an El Reno, Okla., farmer. "Carter was
just picking on farmers when he was
trying to pick on the Russians. w
COURTNEY WAS one of about 150
klahoma farmers who joined in trac-
torcade protests organized by American

Agriculture Movement Thursday and
yesterday.
Other Oklahoma farmers stagea
protests at more than 100 offices of,
state and federal farm agencies in
Oklahoma.
Most farmers complained the em-
bargo will put more of a dent in farmers
budgets and the whole U.S. economy
than in the Soviet breadbasket.
"The Russians will get their grain
from elsewhere. We're the ones whof
will hurt," said Larry Reinneck, who
farms 900 acres near Freeburg, Ill.
'"My grain bins are full and now I have
no market. It just drives you up a wall."

University
professors
to receive
medals at
White House
By BILL HILBERT
President Carter will present
National Medals of Science to two
University faculty members on
Monday, a National Science
Foundation spokesperson said
yesterday.
Elizabeth Crosby, professor
emeritus of neurosurgery, and
Emmett Leith, an electrical and
computer engineering professor,
will be two of 20 to receive the
awards in the East Room of the
White House Monday morning.
University President Harold
Shapiro also was invited and will
attend the ceremony and a dinner
with the medalists at the Depar-
tment of State tomorrow evening.
LEITH SAID he was very hap-
py about the award, which he
said he is receiving for his work
to perfect the process of
holography. Holographyis the
process of projecting three-
dimensional images in space and
is used by engineers as an aid in
testing procedures for machines.
Leith said holography is also used
by artists as a new art form. "It
is constantly gaining new ap-
plications each year," he said.
Crosby began her research and
teaching career at the University
60 years ago and is receiving the
honor for her work in the neuro-
anatomy field. Crosby was
unavailable for comment.
According to the Foundation
spokesperson, the president ap-
points a committee each year to
make recommendations for the
awards and then chooses and
personally awards the winners.

yin cat slaying case

From UPI and AP
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter yesterday proposed a $3 billion,
10-year program of financial support
for alcohol and related fuels, with an
immediate target of quadrupling the
production capacity for gasohol this
year.
The newprogram will expand
domestic alcohol distillation capacity to
500 million gallons during 1981 through
tax breaks, loan guarantees and other
subsidies, according to Stuart Eizen-
stat, President Carter's chief economic
advisor.
BY THE END of 1981, Eizenstat said,
10 per cent of all unleaded gasoline
would be gasohol, a fuel composed of 90
per cent gasoline and 10 per cent ethyl
alcohol - ethanol - that can sub-
stitute for unleaded gasoline alone.
Gasohol would be a replacement for
unleaded gasoline, rather than leaded
gas, because the alcohol, like lead, ser-
ves as an octane booster. Therefore it is
more practical to use alcohol in
unleaded gasoline.
Ethyl alcohol has been selling for
about $1.62 per gallon, so blending it in
a one-to-nine ration should make
gasohol around five or six cents more
costly per gallon than unleaded
Milliken:
State fuel
is adequate
LANSING (UPI)-Warm tempera-
tures and conservation by Michigan
motorists have helped the state start
the new year with adequate supplies of
home heating oil and gasoline, Gov.
William Milliken said yesterday.
"While available supplies have
declined, Michigan motorists are con-
serving," Milliken said. "This trend in
reduced consumption should to a large
extent offset the reduction in available
January gasoline, and no major supply
problems are anticipated."
JANUARY GASOLINE supplies are
expected to total 359 million
gallons-about 12 per cent less than
deliveries to the state last year. Sup-
plies are still 3.3 per cent head of
January 1978 figures, according to the
state energy administration.
The governor said warmer than usual
December 1979 temperatures have
helped lessen the demand for home
heating oil.-
"All indications are that supplies of
distillate fuel oil are now ample to take
care of Michigan's needs through the
remainder of the winter," he said.
Supplies of distillate fuel oils, in-
cluding home heating fuel, are expec-
ted to be 185.3 million gallons in
January-about 4 per cent less than
deliveries a year ago.

The Michigan Daily-Saturday; January 12, 1980-Page 3
CARTER EARMARKS $3 BILLION FOR PROGRAM:
10-year gasoholplan proposed

gasoline, which has sold at about $1.1
per gallon.
ALTHOUGH GASOHOL is expected
to create new markets for corn and the
new plan is designed to benefit farmers,
Eizenstat said the program had nothing
to do with the Soviet grain embargo and
the approaching Iowa Democratic
Caucus.
Grain sales to Russia became linked
with U.S. fuel production a week ago af-
ter the Soviet Union sent troops into
Afghanistan. In protest, President Car-
ter restricted the grain sales, cutting
off Soviet-bound shipments of some 17
million tons of U.S. grain.
Carter said some of the grain could be
converted into alcohol for blending with
gasoline, serving the double purpose of
stretching U.S. oil supplies while
opening a new market for the unsold
grain.
THE UNITED States, which con-
sumes about seven million barrels a
day of gasoline, currently produces nly
about 70 million gallons a year of ethyl

alcohol. The bulk of the alcohol produc-
tion is concentrated at just one large
Illinois distillery.
Eizenstat said gasohol would not be a
feasible alternative to gasoline without
the federal program, which he said
amounts to a total subsidy for gasohol
of 50 cents per gallon.
In a statement released at the news
conference, Carter noted that his ad-
ministration already is committed to
providing between $8.5 billion and $13
billion in public money to stimulate.
alcohol production during the coming
decade.
OTHER MAIN elements of the
program include:
* A permanent exemption for
gasohol-from the four per cent federal
gasoline tax.
* A 40-cent per gallon gasohol
production tax credit.
* A $1 billion subsidy to encourage
the construction of large distilleries.
* Use of some gasohol in government
vehicles.

Ann Arbor Police officials said they
have completed their investigation of
the incident where five members of the
Alpha Delta Phi fraternity mutilated
and then burned their house cat. Police
investigators will turn their case over
to City Attorney Bruce Laidlaw Mon-
day morning.
Investigator Capt. Kenneth Klinge
said' Laidlaw then will determine
whether any warrants for arrest can
be issued on house members involved in
the incident.
KLINGE, WHO heads the University
unit of the Ann Arbor Police Depar-

tment, also said three city police of-
ficers have questioned "at least ten"
persons who they believe are connected
with or who may have seen the incident,
which occurred Dec. 6.
After two days of /questioning Klinge
said police have received some infor-
mation.
Klinge said he is requesting anyone
who has information concerning the in-
cident to give it to the police. "I want to
see a lot more evidence" before the
police take the case to Laidlaw, he said.
KIinge said if'any arrests are made
early next week, the suspects would be
charged under the city's cruelty to
animals and disorderly conduct code.

Dealers push new cars, energy savings

DETROIT (UPI) - The nation's
hard-pressed car dealers appealed to
consumers yesterday to contribute to
the energy conservation effort by pur-
chasing a 1980 car.
William Doenges, president of the--
National Automobile Dealers Associa-
tion, said that message will be
delivered to newspapers and broadcast
outlets couched in terms of a public
service announcement.
0 AUTO INDUSTRY executives have
been using a similar hype, declaring
gasoline shortages such as the one that
disordered the car market last spring
wouldn't occur if old, gas-guzzling cars
were replaced by the new, more fuel-
efficient models.

Doenges said dealers want to make
certain the public gets that message,
which is being delivered in almost
patriotic terms.
"The key point is at the local level to
get the dealer off his bottom," said
Doenges, owner of a Ford dealership in
Bartlesville, Okla. "It's up to us to do a
better job as dealers."
DEALERS CURRENTLY are bur-
dened with high interest rates, large
carry-over volumes of high-priced 1979
cars and a disappointing reception for
1980 offerings.
"The big thing is, auto dealers are
used to quite a volume of business in the
introductory period," Doenges said.

"This year we didn't get it. Many
dealers are in dire straits and they're
not making money."
The "public service" material
dealers will distribute to local
newspapers, radio stations and
television stations, saying that 1980
model cars get 51 per cent better gas
mileage than half the cars on the road.
"WE BELIEVE the general public
will be pleasantly surprised to learn
that if we replaced one-fourth of the
1974 or older models with 1980 cars -
that we would save the amount of oil
that we were importing from Iran at the
peak of our country's purchases from
Iran," Doenges said.
