The President said he thought it was
important for him to "express genuine
concern" about problems he sees in the
medical and legal professions because
"quite often those lobbying groups are
the only ones that are heard in the state
capitals and in the capital of our coun-
try."
Addressing the Los Angeles Bar
Association on Thursday, Carter
leveled broad-ranging criticisms at the
legal fraternity, prompting a response
from the president of the American Bar
Association. Carter's latest discussion o
lawyers and doctors was prompted by a
reporter's question about the ABA
reaction.
THE PRESIDENT responded that
"lawyers care genuinely about their
own clients" but often think of them-
selves first when they organize into bar
associations: "And'the same' thing ap-

"I AM SURE that he and I both are
committed to keeping it that way for a
while."
Responding to another question, Car-

decided whether he will seek re-
election.
Questioned about his sagging
popularity in the West, Carter said his
three-day trip to Colorado, California,
Oregon and Washington was a success
and declared:
"I THINK AFTER this first couple of
yeras of trying to tackle problems that
have been ignored for too long, there
will be an understanding in the West
that we really understand their
problems and we are trying to deal with
.them with their participation."
