The job ain't hot,
but Brickley wants it

James Brickley admits the lieutenant
governorship isn't such a hot job. And
he should know.
Brickley held the post from 1970 to
1974 and calls it "a somewhat strange
office" and a "kind of hybrid office."
THE LIEUTENANT governor's most
crucial function, he says, is being
around in case something happens to
the governor.
"I guess that's the whole purpose of
it," said Brickley, 49. "I guess the other
duties are merely given to fill the time.
Then why does Brickley wish to spend
another four years as second banana to
William Milliken?"

admits it.
"I see it as a return to politics," he
What's more, Brickley says, "it's the
most likely of possibilities" that he'll
seek the governorship in 1982.

Milliken: Will the
'nice guy' finish first?

Michigan's governor told a Lansing
audience two weeks ago that one of a
thousand faceless committee chairmen
recently introduced him, not as the
powerful Republican, William Milliken,
but as the powerful Democrat and for-
mer governor, G. Mennen Williams.
"I've been introduced at least four
times that way in the last year,"
Milliken said, "so it doesn't bother me
at all."
WILLIAMS was a big-labor
Democrat. Milliken is a moderate
Republican balancing atop a personal
coalition of popularity. But the resem-
blance goes a bit beyond their slightly
similar names, for Milliken, 56, is the
latest in a line of powerful, well-liked
Michigan governors which began with
Williams in the 1950s.

challenger, Democratic State Sen.

Egypt questions

By The Associated Press
Egypt asked for "modifications"
yesterday in the proposed peace treaty
with Israel,-apparently dissatisfied
with the draft's language linking the
Palestinian issue and an Egyptian-
Israeli settlement.
In Jerusalem, the Israeli Cabinet
spent four hours last night discussing
the proposed treaty and adjourned until
Tuesday without ruling on the
document that could end 30 years of

Other ministers emerging from the

U.S. sources said in Washington over
the weekend the two sides reached a
"50-50 compromise" on the linkage
issue. A loosely-worded formulation on
the subject was inserted in the treaty's
preamble to appease Egypt, the sour-

HE WOULD NOT specify what

he and Sadat "informed our delegation
in Washington about some technical

Khalil confirmed, however, that a
linkage formula had been developed in
the Washington talks and stressed that

Carter scored on inflation plan

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Carter takes his
new anti-inflation program to the American public
tonight and already business, labor and consumer
groups are telling him it won't work.
The program, to be unveiled in a nationwide
broadcast at 10 p.m. EDT, includes voluntary limits
on wages and prices. They would be enforced by
some new government weapons, administration
sources say. Carter's program would set a seven per
cent limit on wages and fringe benefits. The price
formula is more complicated but is aimed at holding
increases to 5, per cent a year.
THE PROGRAM WILL include price guidelines for
specific companies that will be asked to hold their
price increases of 0.5 per cent less than their
averages for 1976 and 1977, it was learned.
It was understood at the White House that Carter
would also unveil additional steps to be taken in the
future that would require congressional approval.
The government plans to use sanctions to enforce

the guidelines, such as possibly withholding federal
contracts to firms which do not comply, and allowing
more imports, sources said.
AT A NEWS conference yesterday, spokesmen for
some consumer groups said the main solution to the
inflation program is to diminish the control over the
economy exercised by big business.
"Business control over the marketplace and
government economic policies may be too hot for the
Carter administration to handle," said consumer
advocate Ralph Nader.
The president of the Machinists Union, who
regularly criticizes government policy, said the anti-
inflationprogram will fail unless it stops "unbridled
corporate power."
"UNTIL THEN, the Machinists Union certainly is
not going to comply with his wage guidelines," said
the president, William Winpisinger.
Last week, AFL-CIO President George Meany
criticized voluntary wage-price guidelines as unfair

to labor, arguing that it is easier to control wages
than prices.
Business leaders, on the other hand, say the
solution to inflation is to control government
spending and reduce environmental and safety
"I don't think guideposts are going to be effective,"
Reginald Jones, chairman of General Electric, said
at a meeting of the Business Council last week.
"Failures of guideposts are an all-too-familiar trend.
They might as well forget the whold thing."
HIOWEVER, IRVING Shapiro, chairman of the
DuPont Co., said, "I don't hear anybody saying
they're going to thumb their nose at the program."
The Business Council, composed of corporate
chairmen, recommended a smaller federal deficit
and easing of many government regulations which it
says are increasing business costs.
The wage guidelines are not expected to apply to
workers earning less than $3 or $4 per hour.
