Discussing the recent clash
between Egypt and Libya, Car-
ter also said that the United
States and the Soviet Union act-
ed with "complete restraint" in
order not to prolong the con-
flict.
U. S. interest in providing as-
sistance to Sudan is based on
its intense rivalry with Ethio-
pia to the east and Libya to the
northwest. Both are recipients
of large scale Soviet military
aid.
A STATE Department spokes-
person disclosed Thursday
that it has agreed to "consider

the half-year and drew laugh-
ter by adding: "To be perfectly
frank, I don't personally care
to point them out."
0 Despite planned fresh arms
shipments to the Middle East,
Carter remains committed to-
restraining arms sales and ex-
pects them to drop in the com-
ing year. He suggested many
impending shipments reflect de-
cisions made by former Presi-
dent Gerald R. Ford's adminis-
tration.
The first question put to Car-
ter was whether he believes
Middle East peace prospects
were hurt by tsrael's decision
to legalize three settlements on
occupied Arab lands on the west
bank of the Jordan River.
"I think that any move to-
ward making permanent the
settlements in the occupied ter-

ban talks
ritories, or the establishment of
new settlements, obviously in-
creases the difficulty in ulti-
mate peace," he said.
Carter said Israeli Prime Min-
ister Menaham Begin, during a
visit here, last week, gave no
advance hint of the action. Car-
ter said he informed Begin of
"my strong hope that nothing
would be done by the Israeli
government in establishing new
settlements that might exarce-
bate an already difficult posi-
tion."
THE I S R A E L I parliament
voted down Wednesday a ban
on new settlements and Carter
said Begin gave hinr no com-
mitments on the subject.
The President, continuing to
express optimism that a Geneva
conference on the Middle East
can be convened this year, said:
"I think the major stumbling
block at this point is the par-
ticipation in the negotiations by
the Palestinian representatives.
Our position has been that they
ought to be represented ..."

It's a spewing smoke-
stack. It's litter in the
streets. It's a river where
fish can't live.
You know what pollu-
tion is.
But not everyone does,
So the next time you see
pollution, don't close your
eyes to it.
Write a letter. Make a
call. Point it out to someone
who can do something
about it.
People
start pollution.
People
can stop it
