WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, expressing "great personal
satisfaction," signed a weakened ver-
sion of his energy plan into law yester-
day after an 18-month political struggle
with Congress.
"We have acquitted ourselves well as
a nation," Carter declared at a White
House signing ceremony.
IN THE EAST ROOM, crowded with
congressmen and other dignitaries,
Carter said publicly what ad-'
ministration officials have been saying
privately since the 95th Congress
passed the compromise plan on Oct. 15:
The plan is bound to change.
"As problems evolve we will ask
Congress to modify the bill," the
president said. "Today we can right-
fully claim that we have a conscious
national policy for dealing with energy
problems."
He said the energy plan will enable
the United States to save 21/2 million
barrels of oil per day by 1985. "This is
not as great as the original goal, but it is
a substantial basis on which to
predicate future achievements," he
added.

LATER, AT A NEWS conference in
Kansas City, Mo., where he went to ad-
dress a Future Farmers of America
convention, Carter said the new law is
only 65 per cent of what he wanted since
his plan would have saved an estimated
41/2 million barrels of oil a day by 1985.
"But I have not given up on, my
original proposal that there should be a
constraint on the excessive consum-
ption of oil and the excessive impor-
tation of oil," he said. "How we go
about that I don't know yet."
He said passage of the plan was "one
of the most difficult legislative tasks
that Congress has ever under-
taken-possibly in the history of the
country."
THE PLAN IS much weaker than the
proposal Carter submitted to Congress
in what he called the "moral equivalent
of war." But he said it encompasses his
three main principles: efficient use of
energy; incentives to spur production
of available energy supplies; and a
shift to more abundant supplies of
energy, such as coal and solar energy.
While the bill provides tax credits to
consumers for various energy conser-
vation steps, it also is expected to in-
crease costs for natural gas users.
There is disagreement on how much.
Carter said it will. "guarantee con-
sumers increased supplies with more
predictable and moderate price in-
creases."
OPPONENTS OF deregulating
natural gas prices have claimed it will
transfer $200 billion from consumers to

proaucers over the next seven yea
They say that could mean increas
averaging $100 to $200 a year for typii
families who heat with natural gas.
Deregulation supporters concede g
prices will increase, but say it will
closer to $20 a year for the avers
family.
Natural gas prices will be allowed
rise by about 10 per cent annually ur
1985 when price lids will be remo\
from most natural gas. In the mei
time, price controls will be extended
the first time to intrastate gas.
Other features of the new law
elude;
-Taxpayers may claim a tax cre
of 15 per cent on the first $2,000 spent
home insulation, storm doors, sto
windows and other energy-savi
equipment, up to a total credit of $3
The credit applies to purchases ma
as far back as April 20, 1977, the d
Carter, submitted his energy propos
to Congress.
-New cars that get poor gasol
mileage will be taxed, beginning v
1980 models getting less than 15 mi
per gallon. By 1986, the tax will apply
cars getting less than 23.5 miles
gallon and will range from $400
$3,850.
-New energy efficiency standa
will be set for home applianc
Utilities will have to offer consum
help in insulating homes and
arranging financing for such :
provements. Home insulation gra
will be available for low inco
families, schools and hospitals.

Prop D 0 Return to Prohibition

Beicher advocates

Bar managers doubt
effective enforcement

lenient li
By JULIE ROVNER
With Prohibiton soon to be a reality
for Michigan's 18 to 20-year-olds, con-
cerned local and state legislators are
working to soften the potential
penalties for violation of new alcohol
statutes.
If all goes as planned, Ann Arborites
in the newly-affected age group will be
facing penalties as lenient for drinking
as they now are for smoking
marijuana.
ANN ARBOR Mayor Louis Belcher
said yesterday he has asked the city at-
torney to look into the possibility of
passing a city ordinance to de-
criminalize possession of alcohol for 18
to 20-year-olds, who will be cut off when
the newly-passed Proposal D goes into
effect next month.
Belcher's request came in the wake
of a similar move by the city council in
East Lansing, Michigan's other major
college town. Officials yesterday or-
dered that city's attorney to draw up an
ordinance whcih would make
possession of alcohol by 18 to 20-year-
olds a civil rather than a criminal of-
fense.
Belcher said he was very upset with
the passage of the proposal, which
could severely hurt many of the cam-

quor laws'
pus bars which cater to un-
dergraduates. Since the bars are
regulated by the state, however, he
didn't see much that the city could do to
help them.
"WHAT WE'RE, trying to find out
now is how we can best minimize the
damage," Belcher said. "I'm not con-
cerned as much about the bars as I am
about kids getting canned on a criminal
charge for possession of beer."
When Proposal D goes into effect,
both Ann Arbor and East Lansing will
be in the awkward position of having
more severe penalties for possession of
alcohol than for marijuana.
The proposal, which was defeated by
a better than two-to-one margin in Ann
Arbor, does not specifically state
penalties, so the state legislature will
probably take up the issue of im-
plementation legislation when it goes
back into session on November 14.
"WE'RE GOING to draft legislation
which will aim for civil penalties for
possession and consumption for 18 to 20-
year-old," said Ann Arbor State Rep.
Perry Bullard.
Bullard noted, however, that the
timing couldn't be much worse. "After
all, the voters just approved raising the

The implications of Proposal D are
causing confusion among bar owners
and legal experts alike.
Most people say they will hold off
worrying until the amendment is
challenged in federal court, as predic-
ted by anti-proposal spokespersons.
DON CISCO'S manager Bill Marzonie
said he plans to continue to allow 18-
year-olds into the disco. "Eighteen is
the age of majority," he pointed out. "It
has nothing to do with drinking."
However, Scott Lange, a law student
at the University's Legal Aid Service,
said 'he thinks the new amendment
would overrule the state public ac-
commodation law, which forbids public
establishments to discriminate against
any segment of the population. Lange
points out that nightclubs have always
been allowed to bar young children
from entering.
Dooley's manager Bob Storer says he
has not given much though to the im-
plications of the amendment on the
popular student watering hole. He did
say if 18-year-olds were allowed into the
bar, "it would be impossible to stop
them from drinking - all they would
have to do is have someone else buy it
for them."

SECOND CHANCE owner John Car-
ver said his management is going to
"hang in there and see how it's going to
affect us."
Carver said the nightclub/restaurant
plans to keep its doors open for 18- to 20-
year-olds, distinguishing them from
those legally allowed to drink by stam-
ping of hands, but added he does not
understand how the authorities will be
able to enforce the law once the patrons
are inside the club.
Most of the local bars are reluctant to
go into details on their plans for future
renovations in policy and decor, "We
have until December to decide," said
one Dooley's employee.
A FEW PLACES are considering
raising the prices of cokes, in order to
make up for the lost revenue from
cocktails. Marzonie speculated Don
Cisco's will be hitting soda guzzlers for
a dollar a throw.
The disco manager also said he does
not feel the amendment will have any
great effect on the nightclub. "Don
Cisco's isn't really going to do
anything," Marzonie stated. "The Ar-
chie Bunkers who promoted Proposal D
are going to be surprised when they find

New sex center to stimulate A2

Hooks: Nation apathetic
toward urban problems

By AMY SALTZMAN
In Poona, India, the center is
sometimes referred to as "Fantasy
Island," a "mystical and heavenly"
place overgrown with lush greenery,
where people can live out their sexual
fatasies, dreams, and sometimes their
nightmares.
Similar centers have been set up in
cities across the United States and now,
with the recent arrival of "Sex Guru"
Swami Prem Amido, Ann Arborites
have their own "Fantasy Island"'-bet-
ter known as the Sat Dharma Rajneesh
Meditation Center, located at 3522-2
Pheasant Run Circle.
THE ANN ARBOR center is based on
the philosophy and teachings of
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, an Indian
"Sex Guru" who runs the center in

Poona. According to the guru, people in
the West cannot "get it together"
spiritually because they repress sex.
One must experience those sexual
fantasies that have been repressed, he
explained. "To go beyond sex, you must
go though it."
Amido feels that a major problem in
Western society is that people tend to
put off their fantasies.
"MEN ARE LOOKING for magic
pussy, women are looking for ultimate
orgasm," he explained. "Fantasies are
usually better than reality, but people
have to learn to enjoy the sex they are
having now-they have to realize that
this is going to be the best sex they ever
had and that's it."
Tantra, the Eastern yoga-like
technique of learning inner awareness,
is the primary method used to achieve

this greater -sexual understanding and
satisfaction.
The basic idea behind the use of Tan-
tra, the guru explains, is to create "a
loving accepting space, where for three
days participants can discover and ex-
perience the conditioning and taboos
they have about their own bodies and
their physical relationships with
others."
ONE OF THE TANTRA methods he
utilizes in his sessions is to have a
couple sit naked for 40 minutes just
looking at each other.
"By doing this they become mpre in
touch with what they are doing
sexually," said the guru.
Although Amido said he would like
the center in Ann Arbor to be just like

DETROIT - Lack of human concern
lies .at the heart of the urban crisis,
NAACP Director Benjamin Hooks told
a group of 560 people yesterday after-
noon at the Radisson-Cadillac Hotel.
Delivering the keynote address at the
66th Conference on the Michigan
League for Human Services, Hooks
said the technology exists to remedy
the problems of the nation's urban cen-
ters, but leaders lack the will to solve
them.
Congress is especially apathetic,
Hooks charged. "Congress has no large
vision or spirit, but rather is possessed
with a poverty of spirit. Bills for human
progress and needs are debated and,

amended out of shape. Concessions f
these bills are made grudgingly, wi
no concern," Hooks told the group.
"They.think of the affected people
figures and per cents, rather than
individuals with dreams, hopes at
goals. They tend to forget that they a
dealing with finite human beings."
As director of the oldest civil righ
organization in the world, Hooks said
feels deep-seated racism still exists
this country. He cited the recent o
slaught of tax reform proposals, su
as Proposition 13 and the Tisch a
Headlee amendments, as proof
racial prejudice.

Profs disagree on new Carter economic plan

By ADRIENNE LYONS
A President Carter caught many observers
by surprise when he followed up his voluntary
anti-inflation program with an announcement
of tighter money and other measures to save

ding to Economics Profs. Harvey Brazer, and
Tom Weisskopf, and Business Prof. Ross
Wilhelm.
Wage and price controls never worked in

"mandatory controls will lead to a sub-
stitution of higher priced items."
THE HOUSE and Senate could block im-
plementation of mandatory controls, even if
Carter wanted them, Brazer added. "It's
