DETROIT (UPI) - The U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency has charged
Detroit area fuel distributors, including
Ann Arbor's Gallup-Silkworth Inc.,
with 55 counts of selling gasoline con-
taining illegal amounts of alcohol.
Of the 17 distributors charged, four
were accused of adding illegal amounts
of methanol, seven allegedly adding
illegal amounts of ethanol and four
were accused of adding illegal amounts
of both types of alcohol.
THE FINES, leveled Friday by the
EPA, carry maximum penalties of
$10,000 for each count or $550,000 com-
bined.
Joseph Cannon, an EPA assistant
administrator, said the charges
resulted from an investigation that
began last winter after numerous con-
sumer complaints were received.
Cannon said the improper use of
alcohol increases air pollution and
damages automotive components.
THE EFFORT marked the third
major crackdown on the gasoline in-
dustry in the Motor City.
In January of 1981, the EPA brought
charges against 21 companies for
selling leaded gasoline as unleaded.
Last August, Attorney General Frank
Kelley accused 26 service operators of
bilking the state of $1 million in unpaid
sales tax.
EPA OFFICIALS said their Detroit
area investigation was the first in the
nation. Cannon said similar in-
vestigations were ongoing in Ohio and
California.
"We are also concerned that the im-
proper use of alcohol potentially gives

misrepresented employment conditions by promising that
her looks would not be changed, but later requiring her to

ployment in 1981.
McKnelly, who spent two sessions with Craft prior to the
trial, testified she suffered from "reactive depression" and
physical ailments after the experience at KMBC-TV.
It is the second trial for Craft's fraud claim. U.S. District
Judge Joseph Stevens, who presided over the first trial in
Kansas City, overturned a $500,000 verdict awarded last
year. In the same ruling, Stevens said Metromedia did not
discriminate against Craft because of her sex and did not
violate the Equal Pay Act as she had claimed in her $1.2
million lawsuit against Metromedia.

Charles Shipley, director of the Servi-
ce Station Dealers of Michigan said that
Detroit has been the toughest com-
petitive retail gasoline market in the
country.
"BUT IN THE last six or seven years
those who cannot distinguish between..
. competition and chicanery have en-
tered the market," Shipley said.
In a related matter, the Michigan At-
torney General's Office announced an
agreement by nine southern Michigan
retailers to post signs on their pumps if
they sell gasoline containing methanol.
Some mild dilutions of gasoline with
ethanol or methanol are legal under
state and federal regulations.
Michigan uses more American-made
alcohol-blended fuels than any other
state, with 500 milliongallons sold to
Michigan motorists in 1983, officials
said.

Malicious Intent

LOS ANGELES (UPI) - A city coun-
cilman yesterday demanded an in-
vestigation into the police chief's
failure to notify city officials that Dan
White, convicted killer of San Fran-
cisco's mayor and a gay supervisor,
would be paroled in the area.
A spokeswoman for Mayor Tom
Bradley said chief Daryl Gates was told
three days before White's release
Friday that he would be living in the
Los Angeles area, but did not tell the
mayor or City Council.1
"THE CHIEF said he simply forgot,
that it just didn't register," councilman

Joe Wachs, a gay rights activist, said
yesterday. "I don't believe it, I don't
believe it for a second. That's why I'm
calling on the Los Angeles Police
Commission to launch a full-scale in-
vestigation on the release of Dan
White."
Wachs called White a "cold blooded
killer" and said he should still be in
prison for the 1978 slayings of San
Francisco Mayor George Moscone and
Supervisor Harvey ~Milk,.. the city's
most prominent gay leader 3
White served a five-year prison term
for the killings. The short term was

criticized by many who said it was
proof that society tolerates violence
against homosexuals.
"IF YOU think about it, the greatest
punishment for Dan White may be that
he's out of the protection of prison and
has to walk through the streets of
Southern California," Wachs said.
Bradly was angry that he was not told
about White's release.
"I had not been notified in any way
that Los Angeles was being contem-
plated as the site for White's parole,"

Bradley said, adding that he had called
the state Corrections Department and
"raised strong objections" to White's
release in the area.
Corrections spokesman Phil Guthrie
said Los Angeles was chosen in part
because of its size and diversity. He
said the killer would be working in a
non-government job that falls
''somewhere in between" blue-collar
and white-collar and would "not have
any direct coptactwith the public."

College presidents move
to curb athletic abuses

(Continued from Page 1)
they want to have more to say about the
rules that affect the programs," he said
Gikas said he is planning to support
the proposal when he casts the Univer-
sity's vote in Dallas next week.
The presidents' proposal would create
a 44-member board of university
presidents from all three divisions of
the NCAA. The board would create new
rules and overturn existing ones, con-
centrating primarily on academic mat-
ters and regulations affecting the
"financial stability" of institutions, ac-
cording to the proposal.
THE BOARD'S actions, however,
could be overturned by a majority vote
of NCAA member schools.
Gikas said the board's main respon-
sibilities would probably be to ensure a
quality education for athletes.
"Admissions requirements,
academic progress of athletes, trying to
enhance graduation rates, trying to
prevent exploitation of athletes, im-
proving the quality of education
athletes are getting: I think that's what
they will be concerned with," Gikas
said.
THE FORMATION OF the board
would throw university presidents from
the periphery of NCAA rulemaking
right into the center - perhaps even too
near the center and with too much
power, say many NCAA officials.
NCAA officials have opposed the
board's sweeping powers from the
start. They say the reforms needed in
the NCAA could be implemented more
easily if the presidents act as advisors,
rather than rulemakers.
To make that possible, they have
presented two opposing proposals that
would . increase presidential in-
volvement, but not nearly to the extent
of Proposal 35, the formal name of the
president's proposal.
BUT THE presidents say the NCAA
proposals do not go far enough.
The NCAA, they say, has been con-
trolled for too long by athletic directors
anAnnnhc hnh f shm nra far

usually involve recruiting and financial
aid violations. This won't prevent that.
The prevention of a scandal depends on
the honesty and integrity of the athletic
administrators at each school. If you
have coaches that cheat and athletic
directors that cheat, then you will have
scandals."
University admissions director Cliff
Sjogren, who also sits on the NCAA
academic testing and requirements
committee, agreed that the board
would be a less than ideal solution to the
NCAA's problems.
"THE IDEAL SITUATION is for
each president on each campus to
assume more control over their cam-
pus," he said. "If each president in-
sisted on integrity the problem would
be solved. That's not true on most cam-
puses. .. (but) until institutions take
responsibility for their own house
cleaning, you have to have authority at
higher levels."
Can it pass?
A survey conducted in December by
The Chronicle of Higher Education
showed that 69 percent of school
representatives who gave their opinion
supported the proposal. The proposal
needs two-thirds support and, with 24
percent of-those polled still undecided,
the vote seems too close to call.
SUBSEQUENT TO THE survey,
however, the presidents announced
they would amend several points in the
proposal in an attempt to garner the
support needed to push the measure
over the top.
The amendments significantly
weakened the board's power by cutting
the number of votes needed to overrule
by-laws created by the board.
Previously, the presidents wanted to
require a two-thirds vote to overrule the
board's actions; the amended version
requires only a simple majority vote.
This amendment should allay some
fears that the board would dominate the
NCAA, and draw some votes away from
the NCAA front office proposals.
A vote on the nronosal is exnected
