WASHINGTON (AP)-President
Carter will ask Congress this week or
next to approve an emergency gasoline
rationing system that would
unavoidably shortchange millions of
Americans if it takes effect, an ad-
ministration official acknowledged
yesterday.
Deputy, Administrator Douglas
Robinson of the Department of Energy
said the plan, calling for massive
issuing of coupons, would require $100
million to develop and would have a Rescue wor

per cent of American motorists
probably would not receive their proper
supply of coupons at first because of
difficulties in keeping track of

"Tenrmillion to 15 million Americans
wouldn't get them," he told a Senate
energy subcommittee. "A substantial
portion of the American people would
be unhappy. It's inherent in a coupon
ration plan." tfli

whether either major party would

candidate who has run under one party
flag and lost from running again in the
same year under a new banner.
Anderson did not withdraw from, the
GOP race in time to have his name
removed from the Republican
presidential primary ballot.
State elections division spokesman
Howard McGowan said an attorney -for
the Michigan Democratic Party
requested a copy of Anderson's
nominating petitions.
The party has not said, however,
whether it will try to dump Anderson
from the November ballot should he
survive the August test.
"We haven't heard anything further,
so there may be nothing further,"
McGowan said.

State heads move to

LANSING (UPI)-State officials,
bolstered by a federal appeals court
victory, said yesterday they will move
soon to restore fishing curbs and
suggested Indian anglers may be per-
suaded to lay down their gill nets volun-
tarily.
ASSISTANT ATTORNEY General
Thomas Casey said negotiations will be
conducted involving all parties in the
long-running dispute to reach
agreement on implementing' the sur-
prise decision.
The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Ap-
peals in Cincinnati Friday stayed last
year's controversial district court
ruling that a pair of 19th century
treaties give two northern Michigan In-.,

dian tribes unlimited fishing rights in
the Great Lakes.
State environmental officials and
sports fishermen claimed the Indians'
use of previously illegal gill nets is
threatening to destroy fish stocks in
portions of Lake Michigan and Lake
Huron.
THE APPEALS COURT decision, in
effect, reinstates the state's control
over all Great Lakes fishing pending
the outcome of the case, Casey said.
The court earlier, last week had
returned for hearings at the district
court level the side issue of federal ver-
sus state control over Indian fishing.
"It appears we're back in the
business of regulating fishing again,"
