Lockheed to pay bribery fine
Carter to lift
WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter told consumer advocates and
environmentalists yesterday he will not
back off his controversial plan to
remove federal price controls from oil.
One participant at the session quoted
Carter as pledging to fight "to the last
vote" for congressional passage of a
tax to keep oil companies from reaping
excess profits as a result of decontrol.
Carter also was quoted as describing
Mobil Oil as "the most irresponsible
corporation in America." A spokesper-
son for Mobil declined immediate
comment on the accusation.
THE PRESIDENT invited represen-
tatives of consumer and environmental
groups, as well as trade associations, to
the White House to discuss the nation's
energy problems and the need for con-

supporters of Carter's plan to remove
oil price controls. The first phase of the
president's plan went into effect-
Carter called the session the day af-

Emerging from their White House
meeting on Thursday, oil executives
said they told Carter the nation's oil

Lockheed Corp. pleaded guilty
yesterday to eight felony counts of
covering up payoffs to Japanese of-
ficials, including $1.8 million ear-
marked for former Prime Minister
Lockheed agreed to pay $647,000 in
civil and criminal fines.
The settlement concluded a 2'12-year
investigation stemming from charges
that Lockheed paid more than $30
million secretly to government of-
ficials, military officers, businessper-
sons, and consultants in 19 countries.
. THE UNDERLYING payoff scheme
was designed to promote foreign sales
of Lockheed products.
The Justice Department said
Lockheed delivered the payoffs to help
sell 21 of its wide-bodied jets, which sell
for $30 million to $35 million apiece.
While it was not illegal before
December 1977 to bribe overseas of-
ficials, Lockheed was accused of four
counts of wire fraud, four counts of
lying to a federal agency to conceal the
payoffs and two misdemeanor counts
charging currency violations.
THE JUSTICE Department probe
focused on the Japanese payoffs.
Although there was evidence both for-
mer Lockheed chairman Daniel
Haughton and former president Carl

ABOUT 35 south side residents have
formed the South Ann Arbor Council to
oppose development in the area and
many members are worried about the
impact the additional construction will
have on their neighborhood.
"It's not easy for me to accept the
notion that the part of the city I live in
will become another Southfield," said
Barbara Perkins, a member of the
South Ann Arbor Council.
In addition to the four office projects
up for City Council approval Monday
night, Perkins cited a long list of
proposed developments which -would
transform the south side of the city. Her
list includes four neighborhood
developments, including ap-
proximately 200 houses and about 1,300
