From UPI and AP
WASHINGTON-An angry President
Carter yesterday accused House mem-
bers of burying "their heads in the
sand" in rejecting his emergency
gasoline rationing plan and challenged
them to draft an acceptable alternative
within 90 days.
"I was shocked and I was em-
barrassed for our nation's government
... that the House refused to take the
responsibility for giving me this
authority," Carter told reporters he
summoned to the Oval Office to hear his
first public statement on the issue.
IN AN UNEXPECTED move, the
House late Thursday voted 246-159
against giving Carter the power to im-
pose a coupon-type rationing plan in the
event the nation faces emergency
gasoline shortages. The Senate had
passed his proposal 58-39.
Carter's stern wor'ds marked a sharp
departure from past White House
policy of refraining from attacks on
either house of Congress.
"I am not willing to accept the
judgment of a majority of the House of
Representatives, whose members have
apparently put their heads in the sand
and refused to take action," the
president said, standing behind his desk
as he addressed reporters.
"I CHALLENGE the Congress within
this next 90 days to develop their own
rationing plan-fair, equitable and
balanced."
He said he would not resubmit his
own plan, but would offer Congress
"any possible assistance."

He declined to say what steps woul
be taken if Congress failed to meet the
90-day deadline.
"THIS QUESTION indicates, and I
hate to say this, that a majority of the
House of Representatives have been
willing to put local or parochial in-
terests ahead and let political timidity
prevent their taking action in the in-
terest of our nation," Carter said.
- He warned that "anyone in a position
of authority, who is not wiling to

Liability
for sludge
in dispute,
By JOHN GOYER
The company which hauls sludge
from Ann Arbor's waste treatment
plant has been spreading the material
as fertilizer on fields in Washtenaw
County for the past three weeks, but of-
ficials disagree on who should take
responsibility for any damage it might
cause to the environment.
City officials claim the company,
NyTREX, is responsible while the
owner of the firm maintains the city is
liable for possible environmental con-
tamination.
Sludge is a muddy by-product of the
city's waste treatment plant. City
Utilities Director Wayne Abbott said
the sludge contains only low levels of
heavy metals or contaminsnts such as
-the chemical PCB.
LAST MAY, the Michigan Depar-
tment of Natural Resources (DNR)
threatened to impose a ban on new con-
nections to the city's sewage system if
the city's waste treatment plant con-
tinued to discharge sludge into the
Huron River.
In response to DNR's demands, the
city hired NyTREX to haul the sludge
by tanker truck to Ohio. State officials
in Ohio issued permits allowing
NyTREX to give the sludge to farmers,
