Carter: 'No interference'
in Iran-Iraq conflict
President Carter spent most of yesterday closeted with the National
Security Council and his closest advisers, poring over the available infor-
mation from the Middle East.
He emerged in mid-afternoon to repeat his call for an end to hostilities
and his warning that there should be "absolutely no interference" by other
nations in the conflict.
Meanwhile, Ronald Reagan blasted Carter's energy policies in Tyler;
Texas-his second trip in a week to the big state-but studiously avoided
comment on the Iran-Iraq conflict in the Persian Gulf.
Railroad lines consolidate
WASHINGTON-The government yesterday approved the largest
consolidation in railroal history, allowing the Chessie System and Family
Lines to merge operations that stretch from Canada to Florida.
The new $6 billion firm, to be knownas CSX Inc., will operate 27,000 miles
of track in 22 states, the District of Columbia, and Ontario, Canada.
The merger draws the industry one step closer to consolidation of the
nation's major eastern railroads into three giants. The ICC also is con-
sidering a merger application from Southern Railway and Norfolk &
Western. The third railroad in the picture, Conrail, was merged from six
bankrupt Northeast lines.
Kelley files suit against
state prison inmates
LANSING-Attorney General Frank Kelley said yesterday he is going
after four state prison inmates to force them to dip into their bank accounts to
pay for prison room and board and child support payments.
Kelley said he has filed lawsuits in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb coun-
ty circuit courts against four inmates who have a total of $9,796 in their in-
dividual bank accounts.
"As a responsible leader, I cannot ask the citizens of Michigan to volun-
tarily increase their taxes to upgrade our prisons unless I take every action
possible to secure payment of room and board from prisoners with substan-
tial bank accounts," Kelley said.
Japan concerned over
oil shortage possibility
TOKYO-Business and government officials said yesterday they were
watching the Iran-Iraq fighting "with deep concern." With a 110-day supply
and no oil of its own, Japan's economy could weather only a brief shortage of
Japan depends on the Middle East for more than 70 percent of its oil
needs, and this is more vulnerable than any other major country to a closing
of the Strait of Hormuz, the-Persian Gulf's outlet for world trade.
Of more immediate concern was the fate of 4,500 Japanese workers in
the two warring countries.
The Mitsui Trading Co. is cooperating with Iran in building a huge
petrochemical complex at Bandar Khomeini, and 780 Japanese engineers
and technicians are employed there-the largest concentration of foreigners
in either of the two countries.
Jimmy escapes Billy probe
WASHINGTON-Senate investigators decided yesterday not to question
President Carter directly but go through his lawyers instead for any more
answers the White House can give on Billy Carter's Libya dealings.
The special Senate subcommittee investigating the president's brother
met secretly at the Capitol for about 75 minutes and agreed, without taking a
vote, not to seek a personal appearance by the president, panel members
Meanwhile, Billy Carter met with lawyers for the Senate Judiciary
panel at a downtown law office to give a second deposition on his relationship
with the Libyans, from whom he accepted a $220,000 loan.
Supply uncertainty causes
oil price rise
NEW YORK-Spot market prices for gasoline and home heating oil
jumped as much as three cents a gallon yesterday because of worries that
fighting between Iran and Iraq might impede oil shipments from Saudi
Arabia and other Persian Gulf nations.
The third straight day of gains left spot market gasoline and heating oil
prices about eight cents a gallon higher than they were a week ago. Traders
and other sources said, however, the increases reflected buying by
speculators and were not likely to affect retail prices becaue oil inventories
are high and oil demand is weak.
The Labor Department said Tuesday retail gasoline prices fell in
August, the fourth straight month of modest declines, as consumption fell
following one and one-half years of sharp price gains.
