Carter also said he might
urge the businesses to shift
from natural gas to using oil or
- coal during the gas shortage.
Powell said Carter's chief en-
ergy adviser, James Svhlesin-
ger. had reported, that a "sig-
nificant amount of fuel,' par-
ticularly natural gas, nas been
located and could "have a sig-
nificant impact" on alleviating
the energy shortages.
THE SPOKESMAN said there
is an excess of natural gas in
storage in the West, but it can-
not legally be moved into inter-
sVate pipelines to needy areas
elsewhere without the emer-
gency legislation that Carter is
seeking from Congress.

Not all students agree with
the idea of a coffee boycott.-
Steve Smith argues that produc-
tion costs may have increased,,
justifying a price hike.
E-Bayoumi sides with the Bra-
zilian workers. "I'm not sup-
porting the boycott because it
will affect the Brazilian work-
ing class and already they are
in bad shape, living at a sub-
sistance level " she said. "The
companies are buying coffee at
dirt chean prices and selling it
to Americans at high prices.
Who suffers? The Americans
a-d Brazilian workers."
Herb Hames, German Teach-
ing Fellow, cited friends of his
who had recently been in Brazil
say "coffee is just as expensive
in Brazil." As a supporter of
the boycott, he won't buy it at
home but added, "I do drink it
at work because it costs only
one nickel."
For hardcore coffee drinkers,
there are a few alternatives
available to ease the economic
burden. Student Mike Krzys is
cut ing back on the number of

cups of coffee he drinks in res-
taurants, since they have start-
ed charging by the cup. Otners,
in lieu of abanidoning coffee al-
together, have switched to
cheaper brands.
SINCE THE boycott began,
local student supported markets
have suffered a significant drop
in coffee sales. Sgt. Pepper's
General Store has "hardly been
selling any coffee-people have
been buying tea instead.' An-
other Ann Arbor grocer ad-
mits to a drastic drop of 50 per
cent in their sales.
On the other hand, coffee
sales in major off-campus su-
permarkets, such as Chathain
and A&P, have shown little

"Korff happens to be a very in-

so they could better identify
with him.
