meeting in Camp David, Md., by a vote
THE CABINET, in announcing the
vote, accused Egypt of stiffening terms
for a treaty. There also was resentment
in Israel that Sadat did not plan to at-
tend and Egypt would be represented
by Prime Minister Mustafa Khalil. The
Cabinet also said no progress had been
made during Camp David talks last
week between Khalil and Israeli
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan.
. Begin's personal secretary, Yehiel
Kadishai, said Carter telephoned Begin
ait his home and invited him to
Washington for a private meeting. -He
said Begin would leave for Washington
on Thursday morning and did not plan

Carter said at, the news conference
the conclusion of a Mideast treaty is
"an urgent necessity" and he had
hoped to personally convene top-level
negotiations with Begin and Khalil
without delay. "I regret that such
direct negotiations are not possible at
this time," he added.
CAIRO'S Middle East News Agency
reported Sadat had received a call from
Carter but gave no details.
Several Israeli ministers reportedly
were unhappy that Sadat picked Khalil
to negotiate for him, but no mention of
that was'in the Cabinet statement read
by a somber-faced Begin.
Begin later said the Sadat-Khalil con-
troversy was "an issue but not the
decisive factor in the Cabinet decision.

hour Cabinet meeting that the Egyptian

Begin said the new Egyptian
proposals contradicted the Camp David
accords of last September, the result of
the first Carter-Begin-Sadat summit,
which outlined the peace treaty and'a
plan for Palestinian autonomy.
Khalil denied Egypt had toughened
its stand. "Egypt's position has not
changed, we did not present any new
proposal," he said. "Egypt asked for
rephrasing. We made rephrasing. We
talked and talked as I tried to persuade
them," he said.

But he linked China's action to the

of the world cannot tolerate it either."

THE OFFICIAL Chinese news agen-
cy Shinhau reported yesterday from
Peking that a battalion of Vietnamese
troops attacked a commune on the
Kwangsi border Sunday, but Chinese
soldiers and militiamen fought back,
killing some of the invading troops and
driving the rest back across the border.
This was the first time during the
border was that Hsinhua has reported a
Vietnamese invasion of Chinese
territory. It has carried no detailed ac-
counts of fighting, and no Chinese
Western reporters have been barred
from covering the war on the various
fronts. Most information comes from
Chinese and Vietnamese broadcasts.
THE HSINHUA report of the Viet-
namese incursions listed a shelling
Friday of the Tunmeng people's com-
mune in Ningming county 10 miles in-
side the border. It said about 60 Viet-
namese crossed the border on Saturday
but were repulsed by border guards.
The report said the Vietnamese
returned the next morning and burned
down two villages. Hsinhua said 68
Vietnamese were killed and one was
taken prisoner in three days of fighting.
Hsinhau also reported yesterday that
Chinese troops had seized the border
town of Phuc Hoa, about 65 miles north
of Lang Son, but did not say when the
town fell. The reports said Chinese
troops began encircling the town on
Feb. 20, three days after the initial
In Moscow, Soviet Politburo member
Andre P. Kirilenko said their Viet-
namese allies were "rebuffing" the
Chinese invasion on their own, but he
repeated the pledge that they also
"have reliable friends," if need be.
Kirilenko closely adhered to the wor-
ding of a $ nine-day-old Kremlin
statement which warned China to "stop
before it is too late." He gave no hint of
what might happen if the fighting con-

HOWEVER, Iraq, the world's No. 2

refusing to increase crude oil prices to
take advantage of the halt in Iran's oil
Meanwhile, in Washington, President
Carter said in a broadcast news con-
ference that "the situation with supply
and pricing is serious, but not critical."
The Carter administration made public
yesterday standby plans to limit
gasoline use through possible rationing
and other conservation measures. But,
Carter said, "We don't have any
present intention of implementing any
of those measures." (See related
Prices are going up because the
producing nations are jealous of the
high premiums being paid for oil on the
spot market. The spot market is where
the small amount of oil not covered by
long-term contracts is traded, and for-
mer customers of Iran have been
making spot purchases to meet their
demands. This has all but dried up the
market and sent prices there up over
$20 a barrel.
THE LACK of oil on the spot market
has also put a crimp in the supplies of
oil needed by U.S. oil companies,
causing shortages of some fuels and
leading companies to attempt to limit
customers' use of petroleum.
Mobil Corp., the nation's second
largest oil company, said yesterday it
would limit gasoline sales to dealers in
March to the same amounts as last
year. The firm attributed the decision
to problems with obtaining crude oil, %
continued high demand for gasoline,
and the sale, mandated by government
regulations, of a large amount of crude
oil to another company.
Mobil did not say how long the limits
on gas sales would last. "It will be
reviewed periodically," said Mobil
spokesman John Flint. Several other
companies, including Texaco, Atlantic
Richfield and Continental Oil Co. have
also placed limits on the amount of
gasoline dealers can buy.
Another product in short supply is jet
fuel. Trans World Airlines, which can=
celed a total of 11 flights out of Kansas
City Sunday and Monday, scratched
five more yesterday because; of an
inability to get enough fuel there. And
National Airlines canceled its New-
York-to-Amsterdam flight yesterday
for the same reason. National has can-
celed the flight several times in the past
two weeks, including Monday. The
airline said the route would be flown

UNITED NATIONS (Reuter)-The
United States last night expressed
strong resentment at the "Wholly
false" charge that U.S. consent or en-
couragement preceded the Chinese in-
cursion against Vietnam.
Addressing the Security Council, U.S.
chief delegate Andrew Young reviewed
Carter administration efforts dating
back to last November 1 to head off
fighting, first between Vietnam and
Cambodia and later between China and
"Some here have stated that the
visit of Keng Xiapoing (Teng Hsiao-
ping) to the United States served to
provide U.S. consent, if not en-
couragement, for the Chinese attack,"
"This is wholly false and we strongly
resent such an assertion."
President Carter made clear to Mr.
Teng American opposition to any
Chinese military action, when these ef-
forts failed, the United States im-
mediately spoke out against the attack

best current estimates of vehicle con-
sumption. Generally, however, small
vehicles like motorcycles would get less
than passenger autos, and heavy trucks
would get more.
Besides the gasoline rationing plan,
the proposal includes provisions for
fuel-saving actions such as restricting
gasoline sales on weekends, restricting
temperatures in commercial and public
buildings and by restricting un-
necessary advertising lighting.
Meanwhile, a top U.S. officialsaid
yesterday that there are signs that the
Soviet Union may be thinking of major
cutbacks in exports of oil and gas to
"The Soviets have not yet cut back
major exports of oil and gas to Western
Europe, although there are signs
around the edges they may be thinking
of doing so," Assistant Energy
Secretary for International Affairs
Harry Bergold said.
IN ANOTHER development, Energy
Secretary James Schlesinger told the
nation's governors that the ad-
ministration is putting the finishing
touches on a much less restrictive set of
steps to deal with the loss of Iranian oil.
This "Iranian response" will include
steps to encourage industrial plants to
switch from oil to natural gas or coal
and may suspend temporarily some
environmental requirements, including
the one setting a refinery timetable for
switching to unleaded gasoline,.
Schlesinger told the National Gover-

The President said Begin accepted
the invitation when the two spoke by
telephone and would arrive in
Washington tomorrow night. Earlier,
the Israeli leader had rejected a bid by
Carter to reopen the Mideast talks.
Carter also said he had spoken 'by
telephone to Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat, but didn't elaborate.
ON OTHER matters, the President:
" Refused to condemn his brother,
Billy, for his controversial remarks in-
volving Jews. But Carter said neither
he nor Billy could be accused of being
anti-semitic. The President said his
brother is "seriously ill" but did not
elaborate. Carter said he disassociated
both himself and Billy "from any
allegations of remarks that might be
anti-semitic in nature."
" Defended Treasury Secretary W.
Michael Blumenthal's trip to China as
"proper" despite the invasion of Viet-
nam by the Chinese. "We have not had
any bilateral disagreement between
ourselves and the Chinese," he said,
adding that it would be counterproduc-
tive to terminate relations.
" Said he does not know anything the
United States could have done to
prevent the change in government in
Iran. "To try to lay blame on someone
in the United States is a waste of time,"
Carter said. "We will just have to make
the best of the change."
" Said members of the American
Agriculture Movement have a rightto
demonstrate in Washington for their
goal of getting higher crop prices. But
Carter observed that their disruptions
of traffic in the nation's capital have
been counterproductive. The President

that Congress would accede to their

Jarreau imitated a flute with beautiful
whistling while he fingered the
microphone as if he were playing the

imitated various instruments in this

saxophones, trumpets, and percussion

Overall, the amazing thing about
Jarreau is that the limitations on his
voice didn't hamper his brilliance;
perhaps he was even more brilliant
with a stronger emphasis on scatting
and raw emotion and warmth. Early in
the concert, lamenting his physical
condition, Jarreau himself said it all:
