He stat ed that both the union and the board must agree to the necessity of a mediator, which, Mr. Davis said, the board will not. North Canton base salaries for teachers are now at $8,775. The schoolboard is offering $9,075. The teachers union, which opened negotiations in January with a bid for $9,600, have fallen back on $9,375, which Herman McHan, negotiator for the NCEA, says is the final offer. According to Superintendent Dr. James Brandau, the next move will be up to the board. My throat was bothering me the other day when I arrived at the office. I attributed the irritation to the fact that I had just driven through the usual heavy concentration of early morning traffic. I had been breathing the fumes from thousands of vehicles which burn gasoline and oil. This accumulation of noxious vapors occurs frequently in the nation's capital, and during 1376 resulted in 24 official "pollution alerts." It is a condition, however, not unlike that in many other large American cities. And it calls for a remedy. By coincidence, the same morning I expected firsthand what may prove to bo a significant part of the remedy. I took advantage of the opportunity to inspect and ride in the XDH-1, one of the new experimental electric cars. As a result, I am convinced there is a future for the electric vehicle. It is not designed for exploring mountains cr crossings deserts, long- range vacation trips or extended business trips. It is intended as a second car, a suburban runabout and a commuter vehicle. The XDH-1 uses 20 batteries and an electric motor to obtain speeds up to 75 m.p.h. in passing. Cruising at an average speed of 47 m.p.h., it can travel 94 miles for less than $1 in electricity costs. The car can be recharged from any 110 - volt or 220-volt outlet. Thevehicle automatically senses the voltage and selects the correct charging rate. Overnight charging should suffice in most instances although when using 220 volts only six hours are required to charge the batteries. Electric cars have been marketed for more than 100 years. Many of our older citizens will remember seeing some of the earlier models. They were oddities then, but today I believe they are practical and I see great numbers of them on the nation's horizon. Their practical value is twofold. They are zero- polluting vehicles and in sufficient number, will save billions of gallons of ever - more- precious petroleum products. They are low-cost and very quiet in operation, operation. Their application is limited, but adequate for a significant part of America's transportation needs. This past week Secretary of Transportation Brock Adams announced a rapid acceleration of federal fuel -economy standards for the automobile industry.
