Arguing that a peace opportunity
in that region "may not come again
in our lifetime," Carter said, "our
role has been difficult and sometimes
thankless and controversial, but it
has been constructive and necessary
- and it will continue."
DISCUSSING HIS energy pro-
gram, Carter said.
"We know we have to act. We know
what we must do: increase energy
production, cut down on waste, and
use more of those fuels which are
plentiful and more permanent.
"It sounds simple, but I recognize
the difficulties involved. I know it is
not easy for the Congress to act. But
the fact remains that on energy legis-
lation we have failed the American
much longer can we tolerate
the stalemate. It undermines our na-
tional interest both at home and
abroad. We must succeed, and I
believe we will."
At another point, the President
said many foreign leaders "have em-
phasized the greatest future contri-
bution America can make to the
world economy would be an effective
energy conservation program here at
Nothing that the country's foreign
oil bill totals more than $120 million a
day, he said, "This slows our econ-
omic growth, lowers the value of the
dollar overseas, and aggravates un-
employment and inflation at home."
WITHOUT elaboration, Carter re-
peated a statement that "we will not
hesitate to take the actions needed to
protect the integrity of the dollar."
In dealing with domestic issues,
the President said, there must be "a

and those who elect." He said Amer-
icans must face hard decisions and
support "the common good over
special interest.'
While asserting that government
"cannot be the managers of every-
thing and everybody," the President
said crisis management should give
way to progress in partnership to
achieve national goals."
TAKING A generally sanguine
view of the economy, Carter cited a
decline in inflation and unemploy-
ment last year and declared, "we
reached our major economic goals
for 1977."
But he said more must be done
because "our trade deficit is too
large, inflation is still too high, and
too many Americans still do not have
a job."
Carter said he is proposing "a new
program to encourage businesses to
hire young and disadvantaged Amer-
icans" who need skills and opportun-

In Cairo, meanwhile, Sadat heard a

IN HIS SPEECH to- the French,
group, assembled in the Israeli par-

Egypt decides to reopen the Jerusa-

will be prepared to do so as well."
"We hope the talks will be re-
sumed. It is up to Egypt," he said.
The Egyptians have said Begin's

reason for Sadat's abrupt suspension

was "preposterous" and other Egyp-'
tian demands showed "chutzpah."
