Greater Portland Convention Association, Inc., et al., Civil No. 70– 310, 1971 Trade Cas. (CCH) ¶73,731 (D.Or. 1971) on November 29, 1971 (‘‘Partial Final Judgment’’) and the Final Judgment entered in United States v. Greater Portland Convention Association, Inc., et al., Civil No. 70– 310, 1973 Trade Cas. (CCH) ¶74,614 (D.Or. 1973) on September 14, 1973 (‘‘Final Judgment’’). Notice is also hereby given that the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (‘‘the Department’’), in a stipulation also filed with the Court, has tentatively consented to termination of the Partial Final Judgment and the Final Judgment, but has reserved the right to withdraw its consent pending receipt of public comments. On May 12, 1970, the United States filed a complaint alleging the defendants had conspired to restrain trade and commerce in the distribution and sale of hotel supplies. Essentially, the complaint charged the defendants with agreeing (i) to assess an amount of money fixed by the hotels to be paid to GPCA as contributions by hotel suppliers, (ii) to give preference in the purchase of hotel supplies to any hotel supplier who did so contribute, and (iii) to curtail purchases from any hotel supplier who failed or refused to contribute money to the GPCA. Prior to trial, four of the five defendants; Hilton, GPCA, ITT Sheraton, and Cosmopolitan Investment Inc., settled the charges by accepting entry of the Partial Final Judgment on November 29, 1971. The fifth hotel defendant, Westin, was tried by jury from November 30–December 4, 1970. The jury found that Westin had violated § 1 of the Sherman Act, and Westin appealed this decision to the Ninth Circuit. United States v. Hilton Hotels Corporation., et al. 467 F.2d 1000 (9th Cir. 1972) cert. denied, 93 S.Ct. 938 (1973). On September 26, 1972, the Ninth Circuit affirmed. Westin entered into the Final Judgment on September 14, 1973. The Department has filed with the Court a memorandum setting forth the reasons why the United States believes that termination of the Partial Final Judgment would serve the public interest. Copies of the motion to terminate, the stipulation containing the United States’ tentative consent, the United States’ memorandum, and all further papers filed with the Court in connection with the motion to terminate will be available for inspection at the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:45 Oct 30, 2007 Jkt 214001 Antitrust Documents Group, Antitrust Division, Room 215, 325 7th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20004, on the Web site www.usdoj.gov/atr, and at the Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the District of Oregon. Copies of these materials may be obtained from the Antitrust Division upon request and payment of the copying fee set by the Department of Justice regulations. Interested persons may submit comments regarding the proposed termination of the Partial Final Judgment and the Final Judgment to the United States. Such comments must be received by the Antitrust Division within sixty (60) days and will be filed with the Court by the United States. Comments should be addressed to John R. Read, Chief, Litigation III Section, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice, 325 7th Street, NW., Suite 300, Washington, DC 20530, (202) 307–0468. J. Robert Kramer II, Director of Operations.

In order to ensure the appropriate consideration, comments should reference the applicable OMB Control Number (see below). The OMB is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Agency: Mine Safety and Health Administration. Type of Review: Extension without change of currently approved collection. Title: Radiation Sampling and Exposure Records. OMB Control Number: 1219–0003. Form Number: MSHA Form 4000–9. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 800. Estimated Total Annual Cost Burden: $0. Affected Public: Private Sector: Business or other for-profit (Mines). Description: Title 30 CFR 57.5040 requires mine operators to calculate, record and report individual exposures to concentrations of radon daughters. The calculations are based on the results of the weekly sampling required by 30 CFR 57.5037. Records are maintained by the operator and are submitted to MSHA annually. The sampling and recordkeeping requirement alerts the mine operator and MSHA to possible failure in the radon daughter control system, and permits appropriate corrective action to be taken in a timely manner. Data submitted to MSHA (on MSHA Form 4000–9, Record of Individual Exposure to Radon Daughters) is intended to: (a) Establish PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61681 a means by which MSHA can assure compliance with underground radiation standards; (b) form a data base of miner exposure for future epidemiological studies; and (c) assure that miners can, upon written request, have records of cumulative exposures made available to them or their estate, and to medical and legal representatives who have obtained written authorization. Agency: Mine Safety and Health Administration. Type of Review: Extension without change of currently approved collection. Title: Training Plan Regulations and Certificate of Training. OMB Number: 1219–0009. Form Number: MSHA Form 5000–23. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,216. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 19,186. Estimated Total Annual Cost Burden: $245,144. Affected Public: Private Sector: Business or other for-profit (Mines). Description: Title 30, CFR 48.9 and 48.29 require records of training for underground and surface mines, respectively. Upon completion of each training program, the mine operator certifies on a form approved by the Secretary (MSHA Form 5000–23) that the miner has received the specified training in each subject area of the approved health and safety training plan. Upon approval by the MSHA District Manager, training plans are returned to the mine operator. The approved plans are used to implement training programs for training new miners, training experienced miners, training miners for new tasks, annual refresher training, and hazard training. The plans are also used by MSHA to ensure that all miners are receiving the training necessary to perform their jobs in a safe manner. In summary, the Form 5000–23 provides the mine operator with a recordkeeping form, the miner with a certificate of training, and MSHA with a monitoring tool for determining compliance requirements. The form in its present format provides the industry with one form that complies with all the requirements of the training regulations. Darrin A. King, Acting Departmental Clearance Officer. [FR Doc.
