LOS GA1 OS, Calif. (UPI) — state used aerial spraying of pesticides

LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Gov.
Edmund G. Brown Jr. today bowed to
an administration threat to quarantine
California's entire $14 billion
agricultural crop and ordered the
aerial spraying of pesticide to control
the Mediterranean fruit fly.
The decision was a direct blow to
Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s ground
war on the insect that was launched
over a 620-square mile area of the Santa
Clara Valley Thursday.
Brown was in the area to personally
oversee the massive eradication
project which involved having
residents strip trees of fruit in
preparation for the spraying of
pesticides by 400 special crews on
Block said in Washington that even if
the state decides to use helicopters to
spray the populous area south of San
Francisco Bay that a full or partial

A quarantine bars the shipment of
specific fruits from an area unless they
are treated, inspected and ac-
companied by a certificate, a process
that would cost California's agricul-
tural industry up to $4 billion.
Some 200 plants would have to be
treated, including apricots, grapes,
peaches, peppers, cherries, citrus and
tomatoes. However, fumigation
treatment does not work with some
produce, including peaches.

experts said California provides about
half of fruits and vegetables that
Americans consume on an annual

crops are produced throughout the

Eariier ground attempts were made
to destroy the fruit fly, including
releasing sterile Peruvian fruit flies in
an airdrop. However, thousands of the
flies released were found to be fertile, a
major factor in the project’s failure to
xeep the insects from breeding. It was
also one of the reasons cited by Brown
for attempting another ground attack
on the insect rather than dropping the
pesticide malathion over an area of a
half million people.
Roadblocks went up around the in-
fested area where an army of volun-

WASHINGTON (UPI>—Petroleum in-
dustry leaders said they were en-
couraged by a private 30-minute White
House meeting with President Ronald
Reagan, who reaffirmed his campaign
promise to repeal the $227 billion
windfall profits tax on oil.
Tom McAdams of Bristow, Okla.,
who serves as chairman of the board of
Independent Petroleum Association of
America, said Reagan's meeting
Thursday with IPAA members came
after the association met with Treasury
Secretary Donald Regan and Senate
Finance Committee chairman Robert
The group also had a 45-minute
session with Vice President George
McAdams said the president did not
indicate when or how a repeal of the
windfall profits tax might come, but he
said Dole indicated that it might be
proposed in a tax measure later.
However, the president promised the
group he would outline his position on
the windfall profits tax within a week or
10 days, McAdams said.
The oil tax is one of the largest taxes
ever imposed by Congress.

Driver loses control,
smashes truck, house
By PATTY LANGLAIS
Herald Stall Writer
A car driven by a 17-year-old girl
reportedly under the influence of
alcohol drove off the road and struck a
parked pickup truck then spun into the
living room wall of a house on N Brow n
Street at 12:22 a.m. today.
The police report said Anita S.
Wright, 17,812 N. Moccasin, lost control
of the blue 1966 Chevrolet she was
driving when she accelerated around a
corner to go north on N. Brown at
The Chevrolet traveled 196 feet across
the lawn and driveway of the corner
house and struck a Coca Cola Company
pickup truck parked next to the
driveway of the Mark Davis residence
at 425 N. Brown.
The car then spun into the wall of the
living room of the Davis house causing
extensive damage. The impact knocked
an approximately 10-foot hole in the
brick wall and slanted the wall inwards
from the bottom.
The Davises were asleep in the
bedroom at the time of the accident.
Miss Wright was taken to Bartlett
Memorial Medical Center where she
was treated for strain and released.
The damages to the house, which
belongs to assistant school superin-
tendent Charles Dodson, were
estimated at $7,000.
The force of the collision knocked the
pickup 15 feet north of the point of
impact. Damages to the truck are
estimated at $2,500, according to the
Damages to the Chevrolet owned by
Danny Ray Cahwee were estimated at
$800. The Chevrolet missed a car parked
on the lawn of the house on the nor-
theast corner of N. Brown and Peendler
by inches, a policeman said.
Police speculate that Miss Wright
panicked when she left the roadway and
hit the accelerator instead of the brake
of the car.
Miss Wright was cited for driving
under the influence of alcohol and for
transporting an open container of beer.
EXTENSIVE DAMAGE was done to the Mark Davis home on N. brown
Street early this morning when a car went out of control and spun into the living
room wall. (Herald Rioto)
