Carter lists candidates
for FBI director's job

WASHINGTON t') - In a surprise move, Pres-
ident Carter yesterday disclosed the names of
five men recommended to him as potential FBI
directors and said one of them likely will get the
job, "although it is not a certainty."
The surprise stemmed from the fact that such
lists normsally have been kept secret in the past
until a final decision Chas been made. Carter open-
ed a television-radio news conference by volun-
teering the list of those recommended to him to
succeed Clarence Kelley next January as top
man at the FBI.
THE FIVE INCLUDED the black sheriff of
Wayne County (Detroit), Mich.; the head of the
FBI's Philadelphia office; two judges and the
district attorney of Los Angeles +County, Calif.
During nearly 30 minutes of questioning Carter
-Defended his human rights policies, reported
that major talks on other issues with Soviet of-
ficials are proceeding and suggested that the
Soviets may have made him "a kind of scape-
goat" for worldwide criticism of their human
rights record. ,
-Announced that a thorough search of re-
cords at the State Department and Central In-
telligence Agency (CIA) show no connection be-
tween those organizations and Soviet Jewish dis-
sident Anatoly Shcharansky, arrested in Moscow
on treason charges linking him to the CIA. Car-
ter said, "I'm completely convinced" no such
ties ever existed.
-Applauded the impact made in developing
countries by Andrew Young, free-spoken U. S.
ambassador to the United Nations, ,but acknow-

ledged that he, Carter, would not have used the
language Young employed to attribute "racism"
to Abraham Lincoln and other more recent presi-
dents such as Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.
-Spoke optimistically about ultimate prospects
for his embattled energy program in Congress,
declaring, "I have never attacked the Congress
on this matter at all."
He laid he hoped recent setbacks dealt his
program by congressional panels would be re-
versed by the full House Commerce Committee
and the House membership as a whole.
--Said lie has not yet decided whether federal
intelligence activities should be co-ordinated un-
der a single overseer, Whatever is done, "there
obviously will be differences of opinion," said
Carter, who suggested such differences exist
among CIA and the State and Defense depart-
THE PRESIDENT ALSO declined to say whe-
ther he would veto a health, education and wel-
fare appropriation bill that may reach his desk
containing far more money than he sought.
The five men named by Carter as possible
FBI directors are:
--John Irwin Jr., associate justice of the
Massachusetts Superior Court.
-Sheriff William Lucas of Wayne County,
Mich., a lawyer and former FBI agent.
-District Attorney John Van de Kamp of Los
Angeles County:
-Neil John Welch, special agent in charge of
the FBI's Philadelphia office.
-Harlington Wood, Jr., judge of the Seventh
U. S. Circuit Court- of Appeals, Chicago.
