Carter appeals for windfall tax

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter appealed yesterday to the
American people for help in winning
passage of his windfall profits tax on
the oil industry and said that if the
proposal is defeated "we cannot reach
our energy goals."
At a news conference broadcast
nationally in prime time, Carter
forecast "a massive struggle to gut the
windfall profits tax bill" in the Senate.
The measure already has passed the
House.
YESTERDAY Carter also named
monetary expert Paul Volcker to be
chairman of the Federal Reserve
Board in what was widely praised as a
perfect appointment to one of the most
important jobs in government.
The immediate reaction in the finan-
cial community and in Congress was
that Volcker's appointment will be good
for the dollar abroad and for success in
the fight against inflation at home.
Volcker, 51, will succeed G. William

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(UPI) - The Rev. Jesse Jackson
yesterday accused Ford Motor Co. and
General Motors Corp. of violating the
United Nations arms embargo on South
Africa by manufacturing military and
police vehicles in their South African
plants.
"This practice will cause great con-
cern in the United States and I will per-
sonally appeal to President Carter to
investigate the situation," the
American black activist said.
SPEAKING TO reporters during a
walking tour of Soweto, the black ghetto
10 miles,west of Johannesburg, Jackson
said he was appalled to find that the
giant automakers openly supplied the
South African army and police with
vehicles.
He said Ford and GM were being
"held hostage" by the South African
government.
"The corporations sell about 12 per
cent of their output to the government'
here. If they stopped dealing with the

Miller, who Carter named last week to
succeed W. Michael Blumenthal as
secretary of the treasury. Carter had
promised to name someone who would
be quickly recognized as a good choice,
and he made clear he felt he had found
his man.
"MR. VOLCKER has broad
economic and financial experience and
enjoys an outstanding international
reputation," Carter said. "He shares
my determination to pursue the battle
against inflation at home and ensure
the strength and stability of the dollar
abroad."
Carter also defended the rapid-fire
changes in his Cabinet. "I have no
apologies to make," he said.
-The president said he felt the need to
"create a new team to work with me"
and "I had the choice of dragging it out
or getting it over, in effect, in 48 hours."
AS FOR CRITICISM of his decision to
name Hamilton Jordan, a close aide
since his days as governor of Georgia,
11, Ford
embargo
government, it would certainly hurt the
profitability of their South African
operations," Jackson said.
"MOST AMERICAN businesses that
operate here are caught between
President Carter's human rights policy
and the policy of apartheid. The
American firms must get involved in
power sharing and social change and
not just provide social services to black
employees."
Jackson also spoke to more than 1,000
students at Soweto's Orlando High
School, where he was greeted with
clenched-fist black power salutes.
Dressed in a white and blue jogging
suit, Jackson led the lively gathering in
freedom charts and exchanged snappy
dialogue with several students.
Foreign-student enrollments in
American universities increased by
one-third, from 135,000 to 179,000, bet-
ween 1969 and 1975. But they tripled
during the same period in France, from
35,000 to 120,000, and rose from 20,000 to
100,000 in Canada.

to be White House chief of staff, Carter
denied Jordan's authority would extend
beyond the presidential staff. I
"He will not be chief of the Cabinet, I
will be chief of the Cabinet," said Car-
ter. "He will not be the chief of the
Congress. The Congress is an indepen-
dent body ... He will be chief of the
White House staff."
Carter's appeal for public support for
the windfall profits tax came within
hours of another defeat in the House of
Representatives for part of his energy
program.
THE HOUSE abruptly halted debate
on legislation giving Carter standby
authority to ration gasoline after unex-
pected adoption of an amendment
sharply limiting his flexibility.
Carter said the House action

"illustrates the timidity of the Congress
in dealing with a sensitive political
issue."
ASKED ABOUT the rapid-fire
changes in his Cabinet, Carter said, "I
felt and still feel I had to make some
changes in our Cabinet to create a new
team to work with me . . . I have no
apology to make."
Carter also was asked about Sen.
Henry Jackson's (D-Wash.), prediction
that Carter probably would not be able
to win the Democratic presidential
nomination in 1980.
"Three or four years ago, I was run-
ning for president against Sen.
Jackson," said Carter. "And at that
time he predicted he would be the next
president. His judgment wasn't very
good then."
