Watt criticized for
conuent on norities

WASHINGTON (AP) - Interior
Secretary James Watt, upset at a Senate
vote barring him from leasing any
more federal land for coal mining, told
a business group yesterday that he is
being advised on the issue by "every
kind of mixture . . . I have a black, I
have a woman, two Jews and a crip-
After coming under fire from blacks,
women, Jews and the handicapped,
Watt issued an apology, saying his
choice of words "was unfortunate."
laughter in a speech to the U.S. Cham-
ber of Commerce, in which he also at-
tacked members of Congress for failing
to support his energy development
progam and criticized the news media
for being only interested in "sex and
controversy and scandal."
Watt was clearly angered by a Senate
vote the day before to place a
moratorium on further coal sales until
the Commission on Fair Market Value
Policy for Federal Coal Leasing
reviews the government program and
recommends reforms.
Referring to the commission, Watt
said, "We have every kind of mixture
you can have. I have a black, I have a

and a cripple.'

woman, two Jews and a cripple. And we
have talent."
WHILE THE remark drew laughter,
one member of the audience asked Watt
during a question session whether such
a comment was wise in light of
criticism the administration has
received from minorities.
Watt later issued a statement saying,
"My choice of words today about the
coal leasing commission was unfor-
tunate and I have apologized to the one
member of the commission who is han-
dicapped. I remain very proud of the
commission, which is made up of highly
talented people, reflecting a broad
cross-section of our population."
VARIOUS groups representing those
singled out by Watt were quick to at-
tack the secretary.
Phyllis Rubenfeld, president of the

eight million-member Americai
Coalition of Citizens with Disabilitie,
said she was upset as a Jew, a woma
and as a person with polio.
"The word 'cripple' is as archaic ana
Neanderthal as Watt's thinking," shy
said. "I am totally outraged that a mab
of his stature and position would talk
this way."
Denton Watson, a spokesman for the
National Association for the Advari-
cement of Colored People, said it was
"unbelievable that a high government
official would be so insensitive to the
feelings of all people."
Rabbi David Saperstein, Washington
representative of the Union of Hebrew
Congregations, said, "This seems to be
a pattern of Mr. Watt's careless and in-
sensitive dealing with ethnic com-
munities in America."
