WASHINGTON (M) - Ralph

to bring lobbying pressure on
78 legislators in an effort to get
the House to approve stalled
legislation creating a federal
consumer agency.

bor unions, farm organizations
and businesses will urge con-
sumers to mail nickels - along
with letters - to the 78 legisla-
tors who are considered unde-
cided on the bill, he said.
OPPONENTSOF the propos-
ed agency argue that it would
cost too much. However, Nader
said the agency's first year
budget of $15 million would
come to about a nickel for each
American taxpayer.
"It will cost the : average
American only about 5 cents
each to create a consumer
voice within federal agencies,"
he said. "Let big business
spend millions on massive lob-
bying and full page ads. Con-
sumers will spend nickels to
make their power felt.
"We want to build a fire un-
der them in their district. We
want them to understand that

agency
the consumer interest in health
and safety and the quality of
life," Nader said.
HIS COALITION, which he
dubbed the "nickel brigade,"
will urge consumers in the dis-
tricts of tIe 78 House members
to send the five-cent contribu-
tions to their representatives
and watch how they vote on
the bill.
The proposed agency would
advocate consumer viewpoints
before other federal agencies
and appeal their decisions in
court when they think the ag-
encies ignored the law.
The sponsors contend busi-
ness representatives dominate
proceedings before federal reg-
ulators now with lawyers and
lobbyists and that consumer
viewpoints do not get through.
O R G A N I Z A T I O N S
opposed to the agency have
said it would be a costly bu-
reaucracy that would create un-
necessary federal red tape.
In past years, the House has
passed bills three times to set
up such an agency and the Sen-
ate has done so twice. But the
bills have never become law,
primarily due to opposition
from the Nixon and Ford ad-
ministrations.
This year, despite President
Carter's support, the bill is in
trouble in the House, where sup-
porters acknowledge it would
lose by about 25 votes if it were
brought to the floor now.

black fined
for a kiss
JOHANNESBURG, South Af-
rica (AP) - A Johannesburg
court found a black man guilty
yesterday of kissing a white
woman on the cheek in an- ele-
vator and gave him the choice
of paying a $230 fine or going
to jail for 200 days. He paid the
fine.
In a Pretoria court the same
day, a married white man was
given a suspended nine-month
jail sentence after being found
guilty of enticing a young black
woman to commit immorality.
BOTH CASES were among
more than 300 brought into
South African courts each year
under laws that affect physical
relations, including sex, between
the races.
The ImmOrality Act, amended
in 1950, forbids any sex acts be-
tween whites and nonwhites and
a 1949 law, amended in 1968,
prohibits marriages between
whites an4 nonwhites
Christostome Magubane, 26,
who earns $163 a month, pleaded
innocent and denied Amour Lo-
ren's accusation that he kissed
her in an elevator in Johannes-
burg's central post office on
March 31.
MAGUBANE SAID Loren jab-
bed him with her elbow. When
he asked her what was wrong,
she said he was a "kaffir" (equi-
valent of nigger) and stank, he
said. When he told her to go
back to school and'learn man-
ners, she left the elevator, he
said.
In a June 3, 1975, case a
judge in Natal province ruled
that use of the term "kaffir"
was an insult and ordered the
minister of police and a former
police constable to pay dam-
ages of $172 to a black toward
whom they used the term.
