HOUSE, SENA TE SET TO CONFER:
Carter energy plan makes gains

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter's beleaguered energy program
made some headway in Congress
yesterday as a proposed natural gas
compromise appeared to pick up new
support and energy conferees announ-
ced they're ready to go public with it.
A meeting was set for today so House
and Senate negotiators can begin
takin'ormal action on a tentative
agreement that took more than five
months to draft in closed-door
meetings.
THE COMPROMISE would free
natural gas from federal price controls
beginning Jan. 1, 1985.
At the same time, Sen. Russell Long,
chaiman of the Senate Finance Com-
mittee, hinted yesterday that his
previous obituary on the President's
crude oil tax - the other tough part of
the energy bill - may have been
premature.
The Louisiana Democrat said the
long-dormant conference committee on
the tax portions of the President's plan
will get underway now that agreement

on natural gas prices seems to be im-
minent.
THE TAX WOULD make U.S. oil as
expensive as imported oil over a three-
year period and increase the cost of
gasoline and other petroleum products
by about seven cents a gallon.
Long said he now feels there is a
chance the tax can be revived.
However, he said winning approval for
it will be difficult and will take some
keen salesmanship by Energy
Secretary James Schlesinger.
"He's proven to be a good catalyst on
the natural gas bill," Long said, a
reference to the energy official's active
participation in drafting the proposed
gas-pricing compromise.
LONG SAID Schlesinger would also
be invited to participate in meetings of

the tax conferees.
Congressional sources said enough
votes now appear to be lined up to win
approval of the natural gas com-
promise - although it's still extremely
close.
"It teeters back and forth. They may
have the votes now, but could easily
lose them again," said one
congressional aide who asked not to be
identified.
BUT REP. THOMAS Ashley (D-
Ohio) a top House negotiator, told
reporters, "We would be very reluctant
to go to conference if we didn't have the
votes."
Earlier in the week, House leaders
acknowledged they were at least two
votes short of summoning the needed 13
votes among the 25 House conferees. It
was not immediately clear where these
additional votes were coming from.

newspaper, including a black woman,
charged in the story that "physical
violence and humiliation are being in-
flicted on the unemployed quite in-
discriminately" at a government labor
exchange office here. The reporters
said they witnessed the beatings on four
separate days at the government-run
West Rand Bantu Board.

of the female unemployment section,
identified as J. Cronje, and two black
assistants, beat the black women with

Cronje also threw water on the job

A majority of Senate conferees has
supported the compromise. Several key
late-minute agreements reached by the
negotiators would:
-Allow pipeline companies to pass
on to consumers nearly all the extra
cost of shipping gas from Alaska to the
lower 48 states through the trans-
Canada gas pipeline when it is com-
pleted in the early 1980s.
-Exempt most food-processing plan-
ts from a provision, insisted on by
House conferees, that would make in-
dustrial users, and not homeowners,
absorb the initial brunt of the higher
cost of gas resulting from deregulation.
-Allow the industry to pass on all in-
creases in state severance taxes on
natural gas - but initially only to in-
dustrial users.

seekers "in spite of the bitter cold," the
newspaper said, and the women were
"subjected to abusive language."
"We only do it to keep them away
from the window," the newspaper
quoted Cronje as saying in explanation
for the alleged beatings. "Sometimes
the black constables have to keep them
in line." The newspaper said he refused
to elaborate.
IT SAID SOME of the women
allegedly beaten were elderly, and
others were young women with babies
strapped to their backs.

According to Hight, after Edwards
entered the house to get Wooten, the
police kicked in the back door and
rushed in with guns drawn. Wooten was
found in a basement furnace room and
handcuffed. He was not armed.
Following his capture, the police tur-
ned Wooten over to the Washtenaw
County Sheriff's Department. Wooten
was returned to the Washtenaw County
Jail on Hogback Road and lodged in a
maximum security cell. The Ann Arbor
police credited with his capture were
officers Johnson, Wright and Dye.
WOOTEN HAD BEEN convicted last
December of raping and beating a
young Ann Arbor woman. He was
prosecuted as an habitual criminal and
sentenced last Friday to a minimum of
60 years in prison without possibility of
parole.
Wooten made his escape two days
later, possibly with the help of other
prisoners. The Sheriff's Department
immediately launched an all-out search
for him. Wooten was spotted several
times Sunday but was not seen again
until his capture.
Wooten was the first prisoner to
escape from the new county jail since it
moved from its old.Ann Street location
ji dwntown Ann Arbor. .
