WASHINGTON (AP) - In the Bert
Lance affair, there weren't any
winners. Lance lost his job; Presi-
dent Carter lost credibility, and the
Senate's investigators lost their way.
For a (ew days, it seemed that the
fumbling efforts of investigating
senators to nail Lance might, in-
stead, spare him. The more they
talked, the better he looked.
BUT THE CASE had gone too far,
the controversy wouldn't subside and
Lance, maintaining that he had
cleared his good name, took it off the
letterhead of the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget.
Carter said it was all done volun-
tarily, but couldn't deny that if his

friend and budget director had not
reached that decision, he might have
had to suggest - or request - the
resignation.
For it was costing the White House
too much. Carter acknowledged that
his own credibility had suffered,
although he insisted that the high
ethical standards he had set for his
administration were not bent for a
friend in the Lance case.
NONETHELESS, the controversy
was stirring doubts which Carter
acknowledged were damaging.
That problem was underscored by
an Associated Press public opinion
poll conducted Monday evening. That
nationwide survey of 1,548 adults,

conducted by Chilton Research Serv-
ices of Radnor, Pa., showed that
among some Americans, confidence
in Carter was shaken.
About 26 per cent of those inter-
viewed said they had less confidence
than before in Carter's pledge to
demand high moral conduct in
government. About 22 per cent said
Carter's handling of the Lance case
had lowered their opinion of his
performance as President.
IN BOTH CASES, substantial ma-
jorities said their opinions on Carter
had not been affected. Nonetheless,
some erosion was evident.
The resignation Carter accepted,
and praised, even as he defended his

friend and aide at Wednesday's news
conference, should put an end to that
problem.
It headed off the likelihood of some
others.
ALTHOUGH Carter and Lance
both said the budget chief had
cleared himself in three days of
Senate testimony about his banking
practices and personal finances, the
pressure for resignation persisted.
It came in part from the top
members of the Governmental Af-
fairs Committee, which conducted
the Lance hearings. The panel is in a
key position on one of Carter's major
undertakings, the reorganization of
government.

said he thinks controversy over Lance's
banking and private financial dealings
might have hurt his credibility "to
some degree.',
Asked to characterize feelings among
meinbers of the White House staff,
Powell said: "I think they're largely
personal."
He said Lance had telephoned the
President earlier in the day, but Powell
didn't recount the conversation. He said
telephone calls from the general public
were "90 per cent ... sympathetic both
to the President and Mr. Lance."
ASKED IF the departure of Lance,
one of the administration's chief
proponents of a balanced budget by

1981, lessens the likelihood that the
federal deficit will end, Powell replied,
'"'The chief proponent of the balanced
budget is still here," referring to Caiy
ter.
In Atlanta, the board chairman of th
National Bank of Georgia said Lance
could have his job yesterday.
John Stembler said Lance, who was
president and chief executive officer of
the bank before joining the Carter ad-
ministration "can have the job of chair-
man if he wants it tomorrow."
But a state regulator said several un-
resolved allegations involving Lance's
banking practices would have to be re
solved before Lance could be approved
for another bank job.
