Carter pledges to cut inflation
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, beset by a falling dollar, rising
prices and large oil imports, is drafting
what is described as a new, get-tough
approach to controlling inflation.
"We are \going to have to do
something about inflation," Carter said
He told congressional leaders at a
breakfast meeting yesterday that he
will take a larger personal role in lob-
bying for his energy bill, which he said
is crucial to controlling oil imports and
According to some who attended the
meeting, Carter also expressed
"hostility" to the multibillion dollar
farm subsidy bill, which he considers
inflationary. White House spokesman
Jody Powell said Carter considers the
bill being considered by Congress to be
Powell said inflation control
proposals have been "the major focus":
of the White House since the President
made a four-nation trip to South
America and Africa. He said Carter.
will deliver a speech sometime next
week about "inflation, the dollar and
"You really cannot talk about one
without talking about the others,"
Powell said the President probably
has not yet decided on all details of his
anti-inflation program. One of the
things under consideration is a proposal
to hold down the size of this year's an-
nual federal pay increase.
House Democratic leader James
Wright said after the breakfast meeting
that the President's program will in-
clude tougher anti-inflation measures
than any taken by the administration so
Then, at lunch, Carter met with top-
level economic officials Charles Schult-
ze, chairman of the Council of
Economic Advisers; William Miller,
chairman of the Federal Reserve
Board; Treasury Secretary Michael
Blumenthal and Vice President Walter
Wright described Carter as. ex-
tremely concerned aboutrthe inflation
rate, officially projected to be from six
per cent to 6.5 per cent this year, but
which some administration officials
privately concede could turn out closer
to seven per cent.
"The President believes, and I think
most of us believe, that our failure to
achieve a solution to the energy
problem is the one thing that more than
anything else is causing a drop in the
value of the dollar and thus impacting
the American people with inflation,"
According to this view, Americans
are importing so much oil that dollars
are flowing out of the country at a
record rate: $4.5 billion in February
alone. This has contributed to a sharp
drop in the value of the dollar abroad -
down 15 per cent against West German
currency, 27 per cent against Swiss and
nearly 20 per cent against the Japanese
during the last year.
This makes imported products more
expensive, adding to inflation. And it
could tempt oil-exporting countries to
raise oil prices again to make up for the
depleted value of the dollar.
LSA-SG delays vote
on late filing hopefuls
By SHELLEY WOLSON
Because of an apparent boycott of the
Literature, Science and Arts Student
Government (LSA-SG) meeting, last
night by half of its members, quorum
was not reached, thwarting a move to
allow People's Action Coalition (PAC)
candidates on the ballot for the up-
Because the PAC candidates filed
late for the election, they can run only
as write-in candidates. The vote on
whether to allow these candidates -
one presidential hopeful and four can-
didates for members-at-large - was to
be the main issue at the meeting.
"IT WAS A BLATANT political move
to keep opposition candidates from
running for LSDA-SG," said Assistant
Elections Director and LSA-SG
President Dick Brazee.
Eight members are required to make
a quorum of LSA-SG. Twelve people
serve on the body. Of the six missing
members, only Stacey Herman and
Linda Spak were available for com-
"I didn't know anything about this,"
Herman said. She added, "There was
some business I had to take care of and
I had another meeting to go to at 7. But
it was kind of upsetting they were
boycotting the meeting - I don't really
know why they did."
Spak said she had not deliberately
boycotted the meeting and had had to
attend a film for a class. The other four
members who did not come to the
meeting were Eric Arnson, Irving
Freeman, Joel Klein and Mike Spirnak.
Several LSA-SG members noted
teat Freeman, Arnson and Klein had
had the LSA-SG election filing deadline
extended for them in the last election.
Brazee called a special LSA-SG
meeting for tonight at 7 in an attempt to
raise quorum and vote on this issue.

Sadat urges Begin
to 'be more flexible'
WASHINGTON (AP) - A onetime
campaign aide for former Rep. Nick
Galifianakis testified yesterday that
she picked up $10,000 in cash for the
North Carolina Democrat from rice
dealer Tongsun Park.
The former aide, Barbara Fletcher,
said under oath that she dispensed the
cash for the congressman's campaign
expenses from a dresser drawer at
home without reporting the con-
tribution and gave what was left to
TESTIFYING BEFORE the House
ethics committee, she said Galifianakis
told her, "something like, 'Only you
and Mr. Park directly participated in
that transaction and so only you two
can testify to it."'
She said Galifianakis told her that he
denied to FBI investigators that he got
$15,000. She added that she thinks he
also said he did not tell the FBI of any
Galifianakis issued a statement
saying he would make no comment un-
til he sees a transcript of Park's
testimony in which Park said he gave a
$10,000 contribution to Galifianakit' un-
successful 1972 Senate campaign.
THE ETHICS Committee also heard
conflicting sworn testimony on whether
Park, an accused South Korean in-
fluence peddler, indirectly gave Rep.
John Breaux (D-La.) $5,000.
Breaux has repeatedly denied ever
getting the money from Gordon Dore, a
Louisiana rice dealer, and Dore con-
tradicted Park's sworn testimony by
denying under oath that he got the
Leon Jaworski, special counsel to the
committee, refused to rule out the
possibility that present and former
congressmen will testify at the
hearings next week into alleged South
Korean influence buying.
FLETCHER testified that someone
instructed her to fly to Washington and
pick up the $10,000 at Park's home.
She said she does not remember
whether Galifianakis or someone else
sent her to pick it up, how much was left
over or whether she ever specifically
told Galifianakis that Park made the
Rep. Millicent Fenwick (D-N.J.)
asked Fletcher how she could handle
$10,000 cash and not tell Galifianakis
what she was doing with so much
"I DON'T KNOW," Fletcher replied.
"I really don't know."
Park testifiedunder oath that he gave
Dore a $5,000 check for Breaux.
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - President
Anwar Sadat said yesterday that
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem
Begin "should be more flexible" in
peace negotiations. He added that
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman, seen
as Begin's growing political rival, is
welcome to return to Cairo "whenever
there are new ideas."
The Egyptian leader spoke to an in-
ternational group of journalists and
academics here for a conference on
news exchanges with the Third World.
sHE WAS ASKED whether Begin per-
sonally was regarded as responsible for
the current deadlock in the Israeli-
Egyptian peace process.
"Well, I, don't want to interfere in
others' domestic problems," Sadat
replied. "What I feel is this - Mr.
Begin should be more flexible, and I
told this to Weizman when he visited me
last time. I don't feel like making any
comment other than this."
The Egyptian president also said, as
he had Sunday, that the estimated
30,000 Israelis who demonstrated in Tel
Aviv over the weekend, urging Begin to
make more concessions to the Arabs,
WEIZMAN, SADAT continued, "may
come again. I have declared I have no
objection to this. I told him he is
welcome whenever there are new ideas
to start with, to make us speak the
same language instead , of two
"Through an even-handed policy, I
think we can reach the moment when
the talks with Israel can be resumed,"
Formal talks between the two nations
were suspended more than two months
ago, although Weizman visited Egypt
last week and met twice with Sadat.
The defense minister is expected to
return next week.

unilateral concession to Soviet

committee members but believes a
majority would agree with his view that

ters the Bonn administration's position
