Muskie promises to
offset NSC influence
Muskie took charge of the State
Department yesterday with a pledge to
counter the influence of the National
Security Council in advising President
The new secretary of state told his top
aides in a private meeting that he was
aware of the "ambitions" of the council
and, as a veteran politican, has had
"BUT THE DEPARTMENT must
and will be represented," Muskie
vowed, according to sources who asked
not to be identified.
Muskie's remarks reflected the tug-
of-war between the security council
under Zbigniew Brzezinski and the
State Department under Cyrus Vance
for influence with Carter.
Vance resigned in protest of the
president's decision to try to free the
American hostages in Iran with a
military raid, Muskie was named to
succeed him after Warren Christopher
served a brief interim term as acting
CARTER, SPEAKING at a town
meeting in Philadelphia, said that he
expected Muskie to be "a much
stronger statesmanlike figure."
Although this seemed like a slap at
Vance, White House spokesman Jody
Powell denied it was intended to be so.
Later, talking to department officials
in an open session, Muskie said "if I do
my job well and you help me, we'll all
be back in the government."
With a chuckle, Muskie added: "I am
the president's principal foreign policy
adviser-or so he's told me."
MEANWHILE, STATE Department
spokesman Hodding Carter will leave
his job by July 1, despite Muskie's
public hints that he should stay,
sources said yesterday.
Carter has become a public figure
since the crises in Iran and Afghanistan
began because he appears almost
nightly on the evening television news
to give the administration's views on
esch day's events.
He was close to Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance and decided to leave after
his bass resigned, sources said.

Rain or shine, the diag is a crossroad of much campus activity.
Nice weather brings frisbees, speeches, rallies, and a place
for relaxation between classes. The "M" in the middle of the
diag, which has been a tradition since 1953, is still avoided
by most students with fear they will flunk their first exam.
The Michigan Daily has also been a tradition since 1890.
Another Michigan tradition you can enjoy
