Meagan charges Carter
lade up energy facts
From AP and UPI
ERIE, Pa.-Ronald Reagan accused
esident Carter yesterday of making
figures to defend a flawed energy
licy, and Reagan suggested "that's
e of the reasons why he's found an.
cuse for not debating."
'he Republican presidential
minee, disputing Carter's rebuttal to
s criticism of the administration's
ergy program, produced what
nounted to a long-distance campaign
IT STARTED WHEN Reagan
uarged Wednesday in Cleveland that
Iministration policies discourage
iergy production. Carter, at the White
Ouse, countered that Reagan made
e accusation without checking the
And' Reagan retorted yesterday:
Unfortunately, Mr. Carter's 'truth'
gain consists largely of misleading,
ietoric and incomplete facts.
"You know, there are some people
who look up the figures and some
people who make up the figures,"
Reagan told a campaign crowd that
filled the lawn of the Erie County Cour-
thouse and stretched halfway along a
THE FRIENDLY RECEPTIONS of
Reagan's speech and during a nostalgic
visit to the General Electric Co., for
whom he once worked as good will am-
bassador, were in sharp contrast to an
awkward and sometimes hostile recep-
tion by union'members earlier in the
day in Lackawanna, N.Y.
A loud protest by chanting union
demonstrators greeted the candidate in
the steel-making town, and he was
heckled during his speech. Police inter-
vened briefly at one point when it ap-
peared fighting might break out.'
.Reagan proposed a five-point
national maritime policy in an effort to
win support of the union members.
EARLIER, IN BUFFALO, N.Y.,
Reagan told union men he is a friend of
organized labor. He said they cannot
bargain for better wages or anything
else "if Jimmy Carter keeps you out of
a job." He said pickets who showed up
chanting."We Want Carter" don't un-
derstand his own union record with the
Screen Actors Guild.
In Erie, Reagan repeated his asser-
tion that Carter policies "have
discouraged the discovery and produc-
tion of energy in this country."
Then he turned to a point-by-point
rebuttal of Carter's energy statements.
REAGAN ACKNOWLEDGED that,
as Carter said, crude oil production has
increased this year, but said it is still
lower than it was in 1978 or under
earlier Republican administrations. He
said statistics published by Carter's
Department of Energy show crude oil
production in the continental United
States has declined every year since
Carter took office. Reagan saidrAlaska
did not come into full oil production un-
til 1978, after Carter was president.
Discounting Alaska, he said, crude oil
production was 12.7 per cent higher un-
der the Republicans.
MORE THAN 150 chanting and sign-carrying demonstrators waited for GOP candidate Ronald Reagan outside a
.suburban restaurant in Buffalo, N.Y., where he met with Thomas Gleason, president of the International Longshore-
men's Association and 14 other local labor leaders yesterday morning.
Pope looking for sinless birth
control methods; enlists experts
Reagan said Carter "tried to boast
. e about increased coal production," but
.~ ~the'National Coal Association says 100
million tons of coal-producing capacity
is idle and 22,000 coal miners are out of
"Now it's no surprise to me Mr. Car-
ter is trying to distort his record on
energy," Reagan said. "Like his
economic and foreign policies, his
energy policies have been so damaging
to this country he doesn't want to talk
Reagan said that without "the lucky
bonanza of increased oil production
from Alaska which Mr. Carter
inherited," U.S. oil imports during the
first half of 1980 would be 34 per cent
higher than in 1976
VATICAN CITY (AP)-Pope John
Paul II is enlisting leading family plan-
ning experts to provide scientific
backing to "sinless" birth control
methods sanctioned by the Roman'
Catholic Church, Vatican sources said
The experts, including Drs. John and
Evelyn Billings, an Australian couple
who developed an imprpved rhythm
method, will be on hand at a meeting of
bishops opening here Sept. 26. The
theme of the synod: modern family life.
MORE THAN '200 bishops from all
parts of the world will attend the synod,
held every three years.
The pontiff, in an address to the
group, will reaffirm his opposition to all
forms of contraception and will demand
strict compliance with traditional
church laws over such issues as divorce
and abortion, the sources said.
"If there are still any lingering doub-
ts as to the papal stand on these family
issues, they will be cleared once and for
all," said one source who declined to be
named. "His (the pope's) statement
will be strong and forthright with no
'buts' and 'ifs'."
THE VATICAN UNDER Pope John
Paul has condemned such sexual
behavior as "swinging, promiscuous
sexual relationships, wife-swapping
and bestiality," saying they are "con-
trary to the very nature of man."
Earlier this week, the pope again
criticized artificial contraception,
calling it against human and Christian
ethics and unworthy of civilization.
"Instead of increasing the amount of
bread on the table as modern means of
production can do today, some demand
the reduction in the number of those at
the table through dishonest methods,"
he told a congregation outside Rome.
"This is not worthy of civilization."
THE VATICAN HAS sanctioned the
Billings' ovulation method, a techniquel
designed to help women pinpoint their
fertile days and avoid sex an average of
eight to to days a month. The method is
considered so simple that it can be
taught to illiterate women.
The method, first developed by the
Billings couple 25 years ago, involves a
woman's observing her cervical mucus
secretions and determining her fertile
days. It is said to be 98.5 per cent effec-
Vatican officials acknowledge that
large numbers of Catholics stil
disregard the church ban on artificial
birth control. In the United States, they
say, the ban is ignored by an estimated
80 per cent of Catholic couples.
Nevertheless, with Vatican en-
couragement, hundreds of nuns and
priests around the world have joined
with lay people in teaching married
couples "sinless" ways of avoiding
having children-methods that avoi
birth control devices and chemicals
such as the pill.
"Regardless of what the pope says,
the people probably will continue to use
whatever contraceptive device they
like best," says a Vatican analyst. "But
the pope's strong opposition could at
least make them feel morally uneasy
