Oil decontrol plan

and S e n a t e refused minutes
apart last night to block Ford
administration plans to decon-
trol the price of heating oil and
diesel fuel, effective midnight.
The House, by a 208-194 vote,
and then the Senate, by 52 to 32,
turned down efforts to block the
decontrol plan, which opponents
contended could add more than
$120 to the average consumer's
annual fuel bill.
DISAPPROVAL by e i t h e r
chamber would have blocked de-
The key vote in the House
came on a procedural motion
that would have opened the way
for debate and a direct vote to
disapprove the Federal Energy
Administration's proposal for de-
Two separate decontrol orders
were involved. But after losing
the procedural motion affecting
the first, Rep. John Dingell (D-
Mich.) told the House it had
made its will clear and he
would not pursue the matter
IN THE debate preceding the
vote, proponents and opponents
disagreed sharply as to whether
decontrol would mean higher
prices for users of diesel fuel,
home heating oils and kerosene.
Dingell said a price rise of
one cent per gallon would add
$16 to the average consumer's
Judge faces
Harrold Carswell, a former fed-
eral judge whose U.S. Supreme
Court nomination was rejected
by the Senate in 1970, was in-
dicted by a grand jury yester-
day on charges of attempting a
homosexual act with a plain-
clothes vice squad officer.
The t w o - c o u n t indictment
chargedthat Carswell commit-
ted battery on vice squad offi-
cer George Greene and attempt-
ed an "unnatural and lascivious
act" with Greene last Thursday.
THE CHARGES are misde-
meanors under Florida law with
a maximum combined penalty
of 14 months in jail.
Greene said he met Carswell
in a shopping mall men's room
that police staked out after
merchants complained of homo-
sexual activity.
Greene said he and Carswell
drove to a wooded area where
Carswell touched him against
his will-an act constituting bat-
tery under Florida law.
NEITHER the officer nor the
indictment elaborated on the
type of physical contact alleged-
ly made by Carswell.
Carswell, 56, has been in se-
clusion at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital since shortly after his

stnal bill. He and others have
contended that the price rise
might be as much as eight cents
a gallon.
Proponents of decontrol, led
by Rep. Clarence Brown (R-
Ohio), argued that on the con-
trary, scrapping of controls
wo'ld probably bring prices
down. They contended that the
present system of price and al-
location controls prevents dis-
tributors from shopping around
for the best prices and that sup-
plies are ample.
IN A RELATED development
yesterday, the Federal Energy
Administration announced that
it will hold the controlled price
of domestic crude oil at the
June level during July and
August because actual prices
earlier this year had exceeded
allowable limits by some $60
Under the temporary freeze,
the price of so-called "old" oil
-that taken from wells in pro-
duction before 1973 - must re-
main at an average $5.20 per
barrel, while "new" oil must
not exceed the average June
level of $11.63 per barrel.
In announcing its action, the
energy agency said preliminary
data showed the actual com-
posite prices for February and
March exceeded the allowable
levels by 16 and 8 cents a bar-
rel, respectively.
sex charges
arrest and has been unavailable
for comment.
His defense attorney, Murray
Wadsworth, said Carswell is be-
ing treated for "nervous exhaus-
tion and depression" and his
condition is improving.
THE CASE against Carswell
was presented to the Leon Coun-
ty grand jury by State Atty.
Harry Morrison, who indicated
previously he was considering
only a battery charge against
the former judge.
Morrison was not immediately
available for c o m m e n t on
whether he asked the grand jury
to charge Carswell with attempt-
ing to commit a homosexual act
or whether the grand jury acted
on its own.
Carswell, married and the
father of four children, is a
member of a Tallahassee law
HE WAS a 5th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals judge when
then-President Richard Nixon
nominated him to the Supreme
Court in 1970.
The Senate rejected the nomi-
nation as opponents charged
that Carswell was a mediocre
judge and had openly endorsed
racial segregation when he cam-
paigned for public office in
Georgia years before.

FBI admits role in burglaries

rector Clarence Kelley confirm-
ed yesterday that the FBI was
involved in "a limited number"
of burglaries against domestic
targets as recently as 1972 and
In a statement issued to re-
porters, Kelley said he learned
of thse break-ins after officials
reviewed files discovered in the
FBI's New York office.
THE NEW York files were
discovered last March 17, and
the FBI notified the Justice De-
partment on the same day that
the material concerned relative-
ly recent burglaries, he said.
"The FBI under my direction
is cooperating with the Depart-
ment of Justice in a full and
complete investigation to deter-
mine all the facts of this mat-
ter," Kelley said.
Kelley had said at a news
conference last July that the
FBI conducted no burglaries
against domestic targets after
"I WAS speaking with the
best knowledge that was fur-
nished me at the time," the
director said in the new state-
He noted the FBI told the
Senate Intelligence Committee
about 238 burglaries against 14
domestic targets from 1942 to
April 1968.
He said the report to the Sen-
ate Committee also referred to

'additional entries which we
were then unable to document."
HE SAID he only learned of
the more recent burglaries after
the FBI launched a nationwide
search for files dealing with
such operations in connection
with a pending lawsuit.
The director referred to recent
news reports that the depart-
ment is investigating burglaries
conducted during the past five
years to determine whether FBI
agents committed criminal vio-
lations of the civil rights of
The five-year period is sig-

nificant because the law pre-
cludes pr-oecutions for civil
rights violations which happen-
ed more than five years ago.
Kelley said that when he said
there were no domestic break-
ins after 1966, "I knew of none."
Ie said the July 1975 statement
svas based onithte recollections
of current officials at FBI head-
quarters and on a July 1966
memo in which then Director J.
Edgar loover banned future
