NEWSPAPER POLL SAYS CARTER IS FAVORED BY 62%
Carter victory expected in III.

CHICAGO (AP) - The arena of
presidential competition shifted
yesterday to Illinois, where President
Carter is bidding for a knockout victory
over Sen. Edward Kennedy, and Rep.
John Anderson wants home state voters
to make him the Republican alternative
to Ronald Reagan.
White House press secretary Jody
Powell, buoyed by Carter's three-state
shutout of Kennedy in the South,
described the.Massachusetts Democrat
as having failed to capture the
imagination of the nation.
A PUBLIC opinion poll published
yesterday by the Chicago Tribune said
Carter, who trounced Kennedy in the
Florida, Alabama and Georgia
primaries, was running well ahead in
Illinois.
The Tribune said Carter was favored
by 62 per cent and Kennedy by 23 per
cent.
Kennedy has Chicago Mayor Jane
Byrne on his side, but that has proven a
mixed blessing with the city ad-
ministration 'beset by labor, financial,
and political problems. The Kennedy
name counts in Chicago, and the
senator points to the political ties his

i

family has had there.
ON THE Republican side, a statewide
poll taken jointly by the Chicago Sun-
Times and WMAQ-TV rated Anderson
as the preferred GOP candidate in his
home state - as did a Tribune poll.
The veteran congressman is trying to
stake out a claim as the lone GOP
alternative to Reagan, the former
California governor.
Both Democrat Kennedy and
Republican Bush say they would go on
even if they lost in Illinois.
FOR HIS part, Reagan was eagerly
awaiting the primary combat in Illinois
next Tuesday after his landslide vic-
tories in the three Southern states. His
Southern triumphs catapulted him into
undeniable status as the Republican
front-runner.
Reagan ran his delegate count to 167,
with 998 needed for nomination by the
GOP National Convention in Detroit
this July. By comparison, former U.N.
Ambassador George Bush had 45
delegates and Anderson 13.
Reagan beat Bush by 73 per cent to 13
per cent in Georgia, 69 per cent to 26 per
cent in Alabama, and 57 per cent to 30

per cent in Florida. Anderson finished
third in Florida and Georgia. He-wasn't
on the ballot in Alabama.
BUSH HAS said repeatedly that
Illinois was a pivotal test. He can har-
dly claim to be in a two-man race with
Reagan if Anderson beats him in
Illinois.
California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. is
waiting for the April 1 Wisconsin
presidential rprimary to gear up his,
campaign, obviously figuring that Ken-
nedy will be undone by then and he can
have a man-to-man contest with Carter.
The president picked up 181
Democratic convention delegates in the
South and was assured of 35 more
delegates from Oklahoma's precinct
caucuses and 15 from caucuses in
Hawaii. Carter was also reported ahead
in the Delaware caucuses but the final
results are not yet in.,
NATIONALLY, Carter had 283 con-

vention delegates to Kennedy's 145. The
target for the Democratic nomination is
1,666 delegate votes.
While the primary returns from the
south documented Kennedy's
staggering losses to Carter, the
senator's top campaign lieutenants
repeated Kennedy's contention that the
true test of his candidacy will come in
the industrial heartland of Illinois
Tuesday and in New York a week later.
Powell insisted that no Democrat can
become his party's standard-bearer
without the support of the South.
"History shows us that no Democrat
can win the presidency if he writes off a
whole section of the country," Powell
said.
Carter himself told supporters in
Birmingham, Ala., by telephone
Tuesday night that "it's not feasible to
be elected unless you're a national can-
didate.'

United Press International reports
Experts urge strong U.S.
measures to counter Soviets
LONDON - The outlook for the West is bleak unless the Soviet Union's
expanding power in the Persian Gulf is rebuffed by a bigger U.S. and NATO
commitment there, according to an analysis released yesterday by the
International Institute for Strategic Studies. The report said the West cannot
hope to control events in the region but can only aim for a "balance of
influence" with the Soviets.
"If the West is entangled in this volatile region, the U.S.S.R.
will . . . find it far from easy to gain positions of advantage," wrote
Sharham Chubin, an Iranian citizen and Mideast expert in the analysis.
"Western states will need to be more rather than less involved," he
concluded.
Administration to keep quiet
about United Nations vote
WASHINGTON - The Carter Administration refused yesterday to give
Congress internal details of the United States' controversial switch on a
United Nations resolution condemning Israeli settlements in occupied Arab
territories.
Assistant Secretary of State Brian Atwood said a public inquiry into the
March 1 vote in the UN 'Security Council could hurt Mideast peace
negotiations. "We feel strongly that this unfortunate episode should not be
allowed to undermine these negotiations," he told a House Foreign Affairs
Committee.
Meanwhile, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the president's national security
advisor, said new procedures are being adopted to prevent mistaken U.S.
votes in the United Nations.

WASHINGTON (AP)-Gerald Ford,
charging that Jimmy Carter's
presidency has been a "disaster, said
yesterday he will decide next week
whether to enter the presidential race
as the best bet to return a Republican to
the White House.
The former president made his
attack on Carter in a television
interview during a busy Washington
visit that also included a meeting with
his closest political advisers and a

speech before a GOP congressional
fund-raising dinner.
Ford said he has the best chance of
beating Carter next fall, but the
nation's economy and foreign policy
are in such a shambles that he would
support any Republican nominee, even
Ronald Reagan.
"The most important ingredient is to
defeat President Carter, to change the
policies that have brought this country
to the precipice of danger both here and
abroad," Ford said.
"If we run and don't win, we'll have
four more years of the same kind of
disaster we've had the last 31/2 years,
he said.
Ford cited an ABC-Lou Harris poll
which said Ford would beat Carter if
the general election were held today,
while Reagani would lose.
"I haven't got any insatiable appetite
to get into the White House and wield
power," Ford said. "My only personal
ambition is to contribute if I can to
straightening out some of the messes,
the problems, the dangers that this
country has at the present time.
"I feel so deeply about the need to
change the White House at the present
time that I would support the
Republican nominee, including Gov.
Reagan," he said.
Ford said recently that Reagan is too
conservative to win election as
president, even if he is nominated.

Housemay reject
use of windfall tax

BEIRUT - Former President Camille Chamoun, 80-year-old leader of
Lebanon's Christian coalition, escaped death in a booby-trapped car
explosion yesterday. The blast, the second attempt in 12 years to assassinate
Chamoun, killed a bodyguard.
"My face, ears, and eyes have been cleared from glass shrapnel and I'm
back in the arena to fight crime and criminals," said the silver-haired
millionaire after being treated 30 minutes at a hospital. A critic of the Syrian
peace-keeping presence in post-civil war Lebanon, Chamoun told a news
conference later that he thought the attempt on his life was aimed at
undermining the current efforts to achieve national reconciliation.
Grant for Volkswagen plant
nears approval in Senate
LANSING - The state Senate neared final approval on the release of
$650,000 in state funds aimed at luring a new Volkswagen of America plant to
suburban Detroit. A final vote on the appropriation from the state's general
fund could come by week's end.
The state would gain between 3,000 and 5,000 new jobs and $20 million in
tax revenues if the company locates in Michigan. The German-based
automaker is expected to spend between $400 and $500 million to convert the
Sterling Heights factory, which has previously been used as a federal missile
plant.
"I think any delay of this bill would be interpreted. . . as whether we
want Volkswagen of America," said Sen. Kerry Kammer (D-Pontiac).
State troopers, Milliken split
LANSING - The state troopers' union accused the Milliken
administration yesterday of breaking off contract talks and hinted at
embarrassing protests during the Republican National Convention, to be
held this summer in Detroit, if progress is not made.
Leaders of the Michigan State Police Troopers Association demanded to
meet with Gov. Milliken on the matter, but talked with state police officials
instead. After the session, union spokesmen said they would continue to
press their demands.
Troopers were granted collective bargaining rights in 1978 after vo ers
approved a constitutional amendment but implementation was stalled for
months because of disputes between the union and Milliken's office.
Accused Vietnam traitor
denied access to gov't records
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Attorneys for accused traitor Robert
Garwood lost a bid yesterday to gain access to government documents which
they said would prove Garwood was only one of many U.S. servicemen who
cooperated with the enemy in Vietnam. They are hoping to make the conduct
of all Vietnam-era prisoners a central issue in Garwood's court-martial on,
charges of desertion and collaboration with the enemy during the 13 years he
spent behind enemy lines.
Garwood, who returned to the U.S. last March after surfacing in Hanoi,
has complained of frequent headaches, nightmares, and emotional problems
since his return. His attorneys claimed he has been unable to receive
psychiatric treatment from military doctors because regulations permit
testimony from the doctors to be used against him in the court-martial.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House
decided yesterday that most of the
money from President Carter's
proposed "windfall" tax on the oil in-
dustry should be earmarked for cutting
income taxes - not for energy
programs.
By a non-binding vote of 215-201, the
House rejected an attempt to set aside
for energy production and conservation
'~ half the $227.7 billion that the new oil
tax is expected to bring in over the

1980s. That vote left in the bill the
suggested allocation of 60 per cent of
the money for income-tax reductions..
DESPITE THE earmarking, any tax
cut would have to be aporoved in
separate legislation later. The non-
binding resolution simply would have
allowed the House to say it favors spen-
ding at least half the energy tax for
energy.
House leaders plan to take final ac-
tion on the bill today.
The compromise bill produced by a
Senate-House conference committee
over a period of two months earmarked
60 per cent of the money - $136.4 billion
- for income-tax reductions, 25 per
cent for helping poor families pay the
rising cost of energy, and only 15 per
cent to finance energy programs and to
improve the transportation system.
"It seems strange that we go through
all this turmoil - agony even - to
produce an energy bill and then give
more importance to tax relief than to
energy," Rep. Joseph Fisher, (D-Va.),
sponsor of the resolution, told
colleagues.
The defeated resolution would have
allowed no earmarking for tax reduc-
tions, meaning that 50 per cent would go
for energy program,s 25 per cent wold
be set aside to help the poor and the
other 25 per cent available to be spent
as Congress decided.
