furnish within 15 days "full and com-
plete information" on current gasoline,
diesel fuel and heating oil shortages.
And in the Senate, three conservative
senators who usually vote on the in-
dustry's side on key energy issues were
circulating a petition urging the hiring
of an independent auditing firmtosee if
the present shortages are real or con-
trived.
SENS. PAUL LAXALT (R-Nev.),
Pete Domonici (R-N.M.), and Bennett
Johnslton (1-La.) said in a joint
statement the audit should show how
much oil U.S. companies have received
since the Iranian revolution and how
much is in their present inventories.
The audit should also show what

refiners are doing with their oil and
why there are especially severe shor-
tages of diesel fuel in some regions of
the country.
House Republican Leader John
Rhodes of Arizona expressed suspicison
of oil company claims that they will use
profits from decontrol to produce more
oil. He cited a lack of credible infor-
mation on the extent of current shor-
tages and oil industry finances.
"THERE ARE too many conflicting
descriptions of our energy picture," he
said.
The third-ranking House Republican,
Rep. Bob Michel of Illinois, made an
even more blunt assertion. He claimed
many GOP members would join
Democrats and vote to oppose

deregulation unless it could be demon-
strated it would yield increased produc-
tion and not just "increase dividends to
oil company stockholders."
Rep. Toby Moffett (D-Conn.), one of
the leaders of the anti-decontrol cam-
paign, said legislation will be before the
House within the next few weeks aimed
at stopping Carter from decontrolling
oil.
A CONGRESSIONAL Budget Office
study made public Wednesday, claimed
that oil decontrol would reduce U.S.
imports by about 620,000 barrels a day
by 1985 through increased production
and conservation.
Although representing about five per
cent of anticipated U.S. imports for that

industry
year, this figure is substantially less
than the one million barrel savings
initially claimed by the White House.
Meanwhile, Barry Bosworth, director
of the Council on Wage and Price
Stability, told a Senate subcommittee
that gasoline prices at the pump appar
to have climbed higher than they should
have simply as a result of increased
crude oil prices.
And nine Senators called on Carter to
convene an energy summit conferen-
ce." They said Carter and Energy
Department officials should meet with
oil company executives at Camp David,
then give Americans "a straightfor-
ward accounting with hard facts" on
the energy situation.

the same criteria as stock holdings, and
establishes a South African Investmen-
ts Advisory Committee, which would
establish standards for corporate im-
plementation of the Sullivan Principles
and make recommendations for ap-
propriate University action regarding
compliance of the corporations and
banks.
THE REPORT was approved
unanimously except for one abstention,
by student committee member Anne
Fullerton.
Fullerton said she abstained from the
vote on the finalized SAACFA report
because of the exclusion of a measure
which would call for divestment of a
corporation which sells to the South
African government or government-
owned corporations.
"While I'm basically in agreement
with the report, I feel that exclusion of a
statement on sales to the South African
police and military makes it difficult
for me to support the report as it
emerged from these proceedings,"
Fullerton said. "There was con-
siderable disagreement among com-
mittee members on this issue and I do
not believe-enough time was given to
discussion."
Several faculty members on the
committee expressed dismay with
Fullerton's abstention, and tried to
convince her to change it and make a
statement explainhig why she was

dissatisfied.
THE FACULTY members claimed
Fullerton's vote was not fair in
representing her constituency, and that
student representation in University
matters would be hurt because of her
abstention.
Yvonne McClenney, the other student
member of SAACFA was not present at
yesterday's meeting.
The final version of the report will be
written by SAACFA Chairwoman
Patricia Longe. The other 11 committee
members will have a chance to reword
portions of the report before it is sent to
the Rdgents. Longe said she would not
allow changes to be substantiative, but
would allow for changes in clarity or
grammar.
