WASHINGTON () - Greg
Schneiders, who bowed out of
President-elect Carter's inner
circle to deal with FBI ques-
tions about his business career,
denied yesterday that he ac-
cepted unemployment checks
for a year while drawing in-
come from a company he ran.
Schneiders, who during the
campaign worked so closely
with Carter that some describ-
ed him as the candidate's third
hand, expressed confidence
those questions soon will be re-,
solved and that he will play a"
role in the new administration.
THAT CONFIDENCE appar-
ently is shared by Carter.
When asked Tuesday if Schnei-
ders would get a White House
job he replied, "I think so,
yes."
But Schneiders, who went
from business failure to be an
influential adviser to the can-
didate and president-elect, will
AP Photo not be appointed White House
appointments secretary, the
nIe jout? ob he was inline for.
Schneiders, 29, asked Carter
t their Copenhagen Zoo-mates. to appoint someone else after I

the FBI, in a routine back-
ground check, accumulated a
file of information about the
failure of the two restaurants
Schneiders had owned in Wash-
ington and the corporate debts
and bounced checks that had
been part of that failure.
IN AN interview, Schneiders
said he had acted to avoid any
possible embarrassment to Car-
ter in forming his administra-
tion.
The possibility of embarrass-
ment increased when the FBI
referred to the U.S. attorney
in' Washington evidence that
while Schneiders drew 50,
weeks of unemployment com-
pensation at $117 a week dur-
ing 1975 he was also active in
the affairs of two companies he
had formed.
Schneiders said in the inter-
view that he never received
any compensation from the
companies which he said he
had put together with $5,000
borrowed from a bank.
HE SAID HE did reimburse
himself for "a few hundred
dollars" spent out of his ownI

pocket. But he denied receiv-
ing loans from the firms or re-
ceiving any salary or income
from them.
The question now is being
studied by the U. S. attorney
and Schneiders said he is con-
vinced nothing will come of it
because "I don't think all this
stuff taken totally and in con-
text would be upsetting to any,.,
one."
BUT HE SAID he withdrew
himself from consideration for
the appointments secretary's
job because, "I couldn't ask
him to make a decision based
on my own confidence that
everything would turn out
okay."
Schneiders once owned two
restaurants - Whitby's on
Capitol Hill and the George-
town Beef Co. - and they are
at the center of his current
problems.
First of all there were a lot
of bounced corporate checks,
Schneiders said. But he added
that most were redeemed im-

mediately in cash and that a
search was made when the res-
taurants folded to take care of
the rest.
THEN THERE were accum-
ulated debts that amounted to
$147,000 at Whitby's on Capitol
Hill and $125,000 at the George-
town Beef Co.
"If we had declared bank-
ruptcy, which was a very
tempting prospect, they would
have been sold at auction for
just the value of the equipment
and furnishings for $20,000 or
$25,000," he said.
"We would have been able
to walk away from the thing
and the, creditors would have
been stuck. That's why we
continued to operate them until
we could sell them for as much
as we could ,get."
According to Schneiders,
Whitby's was sold for $150,000,
wiping out that debt, and the
other restaurant brought $115,-
000 leaving $10,000 in obliga-
tions which could not be settled
at full dollar value.

Psst... did you hear
These two giraffes seem to be spreading more than a few tall

the or
stories about

that most were redeemed im- at full dollar value.

BOSTON (AP) - Women who
take birth control pills and oth-
er female hormones during
pregnancy are about twice as
likely as usual to have babies
with heart defects, a study
shows.
A survey of pregnant wom-
en, analyzed at Boston Univer-
sity (BU), showed the increased
risk of heart trouble in the in-
fants of women who took two
commonly prescribed female
hormones, estrogen and proges-
togen.
MOST OF THE problems, they
found, occurred among women
who took the drug, sometimes
accidentally, during the second
and third months of pregnancy.
Results of the study, conduct-
ed by doctors at the Drug Epi-
demiology Unit of BU Medical
Center, were scheduled to be
published in today's issue of the
New England Journal of Medi-.
cine.
Women are ordinarily urged
to stop taking birth control pills
when they become pregnant.
The doctors said the problems
usually occurred when women
did not realize they were ex-
pectant.
THE DOCTORS found a rate
of about 18 babies with heart
defects among every 1,000 in-
fants born to women who took
the drugs during early preg-
nancy. The rate was about eight
such cases for every 1,000 ba-
bies whose mothers did not take
these drugs.
"Female hormones taken in
the early stages of pregnancy
may disturb the normal cardio-
vascular development of the fe-
tus," the doctors wrote. "Both
estrogens and progestogens were
associated with the occurrence
of congenital heart disease in
the offspring."
'Sometimes women are given
the female sex hormones by
doctors who believe the drugs
reduce the chance of miscarri-
age.
THE BU DOCTORS found,that

veyed, 1,042 received the hor-
mones during early pregnancy,
and 19 gave birth to children
with heart trouble.
The figures the doctors analy-
zed were part of a survey con-
ducted by the National Insti-
tute of Neurological and Com-
municative Disorders and
Stroke. The survey contained
information compiled at 12 hos-
pitals across the United States
and_ covered women who were
pregnant between 1958 and 1965.
The BU work was financed by
contracts from the institute and
the Food and Drug Administra-
