Carter to reduce synfue plan
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, in a conciliatory gesture toward
Congress, agreed yesterday to
significantly scale down his multi-
billion dollar plan for finding alter-
natives to imported oil.
Members of the Senate Energy
Committee reported that the president
will accept a smaller version of his
proposed $88 billion synthetic fuels
Sen. Henry Jackson, (D-Wash.),
committee chairman, said that in
agreeing to the compromise, Carter
seemed "more cooperative than I have
seen him in a long time."
AS A RESULT, Jackson said, "He's
going to get the bulk of what he's asked
Thee'synthetic fuels plan had been
coming under increasing criticism in
Congress as one that would have
required too much spending on an
energy development program which no
one is sure will work.
Some congressional committees have
said they would sharply reduce the size-
of the.president's proposal to produce
2.5 million barrels of oil daily from oil
shale and other synthetic sources by
"HE HAS AGREED to change his
proposal," said Sen. Pete Domenici,
(R-N.M.), after the White House
meeting which included new Energy
Secretary Charles Duncan and Vice
President Walter Mondale.
Domenici and Sen. Bennett Johnston,
(D-La.), said Carter indicated he would
accept a smaller and slower $20 billion
phased-in synthetic fuels effort which
will allow for greater consideration of
potential environmental effects and a
closer look at new means of finding the
alternative to imported oil.
Domenici also ieported Carter said
he would not insist on government
ownership of any of the initial synthetic
fuels plants, as originally proposed.
WHITE HOUSE press secretary Jody
Povell said the legislation which the
senators told Carter they intended to
approve is "satisfactory to the ad-
Carter has also proposed creation of
an Energy Mobilization Board to cut
government red tape and speed ap-
proval of higher priority energy projec-
ts, including synthetic fuel plants.
Such plants use enormous amounts of
water, but Carter assured participants
in yesterday's meeting that western
states where the- plants would be built
would retain control of their water.
The president was also quoted as
saying he was opposed to giving the
mobilization board authority to waive
federal, state and local laws to speed
construction of high priority energy
The House Commerce Committee has
tentatively voted to give the board
sweeping authority and the Senate
Energy Committee will decide later
this week on a proposal to waive sub-
stantive laws for between six and 10
projects, including synthetic fuel

(Continued from Page 1)
While Zoom sells for $10 per 90 tablet
bottle, Dr. Hernan Drobny of the
University Health Service said, "the
active ingredient is nothing more than
caffeine. You can package it any way
you want. It's still the caffeine effect."
ONE ZOOM tablet is 1.67 per cent caf-
Jeine, and contains about 17 milligrams
of the stimulant. Other ingredients in-'
clude raw protein, starch, ash and
tanin, an ingredient in tea. An average
-NoDoz tablet contains 100 milligrams,
while an average Vivarin pill contains
200, according to Health Service
spokeswoman Gail Ryan.
Drobny said the main effects of Zoom
are much the same as a similar
ingestion of coffee - restlessness,
decreased appetite, extra heart beats
and nervousness. In large quantities,
sleep deprivation, depression and
stomach disorders are common by-
products of caffeine.
"I would not recommend this
product," Drobny said. "I would

JULIAN MOODY, owner of Apple
Rose Health Foods, on W. Liberty, said
after taking four Zoom tablets, he con-
ferred with others who sampled the
product and decided to discontinue it.
"It caused severe depression and
discomfort," he said. "I felt nausea and
nervousness, along with extreme
emotional and physical weaknesses.
For about three hours, I had a good cof-
fee buzz, but then I realized, 'Hey, this
is bad. I don't like this stuff at all.' I was
shaking so badly I could hardly keep
food on my fork."
Manufacturers of Zoom claim that
five tablets is equivalent to one cup of
coffee. The label recommends a dosage
of 2-4 tablets.
Supporters of Zoom claim that the
way the product is absorbed into the
body, is different from the way coffee
or NoDoz is. According to Cherine Bur-
n'elle, "It doesn't store up in the body"
But Drobny denies theabsorption
rate is significant. "It is irregardless as
to how fast the product is absorbed. The
effect is the same.

year was that we had a hard time get-

looking for jobs," said Riet Haas of the
School of Education's Personnel Depar-
tment. Haas said that this year the
School of Education has added a new
department, Instructional Strategy
Services, which has opened upseveral
jobs from photographer and graphic ar-
tist to clerical worker. "I think it

A WORK/STUDY job can lead to full-
time employment later on, according to
Jane McCormick of the Center for
Research on Economic Development.
"Many times Work/Study; students
have been hired on after their awards
run out," McCormick said. The center
offers jobs for Research Assistants as
well as librarians.
The Job Fair makes the process of
choosing an employer much easier than
it was before, according to LSA
sophomore Carol Ann Oldershaw.
"Last year it was more individual -
ypu had to pore through binders and
look up those people yourself," said
Oldershaw, who worked for the UAC
ticket office last year.
Jo Ann Holdridge, a Nursing School
freshwoman agreed. "I like it because
~you can get hired right on the spot. Sin-
ce I'm going into nursing, I should be
able to find a job I like.,"
ALTHOUGH THE Work/Study Job
Fair was, a success, according to
Longmate, many t of the 1500
Work/Study jobs remain unfilled.
However, the Recreation Department,
the University's largest Work/Study
employer was not at the fair.
Work/Study students who didn't at-
tend the Job Fair can still get jobs by
contacting the Work/Study part of the
Financial Aid office.
