During his trip to Israel, Stone met with Defense Minister Shimon Peres and Foreign Minister Yigal Alton for an hour each, and held shorter discussions with Rabin, the Israeli minister of transportation and the head of the Israeli air force. He requested a meeting with Carter shortly after he returned, indicating that he wanted to pass along the message from ihe Israeli leaders and his impressions of the Mideast situation. Sources said Stone also wanted to pursue his earlier discussions with Carter about the need for a "meaningful energy policy" that would reduce U.S. dependence on "unreliable" foreign sources of oil. The two men first discussed energy during one of Carter's campaign trips to Florida last summer. Stone said he may also bring up an "economic suggestion I have" during the meeting, but said he does not plan to make any suggestions for appointments to the Carter administration. "I came in (to the Carter camp) late," Stone said. "Many other people have worked longer and harder and have more of a right to initiate appointment suggestions that I do." By CHARLES OSOLIN Cox Ntwtpaptri Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - Sen. Richard Stone (D-Fla.) will meet privately with President-elect Jimmy Carter Thursday to relay a "personal message" from Israeli leaders about prospects for peace in the Mideast. Stone, who met several top Israeli leaders, including Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, during a visit to Israel early last month, said yesterday the message deals with recent "peace suggestions" by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and other Arab leaders. Stone declined to reveal the specifics, however, and said it would be "up to him (Carter)" to authorize release of the information. Stone said he will also discuss the nation's energy problems during his 25-minute session with Carter at Blair House. The discussion is expected to focus on Stone's proposal for a "national leadership conference" to develop a comprehensive national energy policy by the middle of next year. Only one other senator besides Stone Abraham Ribicoff of Connecticut is scheduled to meet individually with Carter during the prsident-elect's three-day visit to Washington which begins today. Ribicoff has also recently returned from a trip to the Middle East, and he is expected to brief Carter on CBiscayne qfiirniture Wfg.

Increased Inflation Predicted WASHINGTON (UPI) - Expected price rises for imported oil will result in worse inflation than occurred three years ago after the first big increases, according to a State Department document obtained yesterday by United Press International. The working paper entitled "Impact of Another Oil Prices Increase" said another increase by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) will "seriously threaten" the already slower than expected economic recovery by the United States and other major industrialized nations. The situation will be even worse for the developing nations that must import oil. The seven-page working paper, prepared in advance of OPEC's meeting later, this month at which the oil exporters are expected to raise their price, said the United States is more vulnerable now than before because its oil imports account for 40 per cent of the country's petroleum supplies, compared to the 28 per cent when Arab oil first shot up three years ago. Arab oil accounts for more than half of U.S. imports. "With economic recovery in major countries already slowed, the prospective oil price hike poses a particularly serious threat to the strength of the upturn. The risks are heightened at this time because a continued recovery depends on a rebound in business investment early next year," the study said. The study is mainly concerned with the so-called "Big Seven" industrialized nations (the United States, Japan, West Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy and Canada) and made its estimates on the basis of an OPEC price hike ranging from 5 per cent to 15 per cent. In the case of the United States, the study concluded that inflation would grow an additional .3 to .7 per cent, depending on whether OPEC increases its crude prices by 5 or 15 per cent. Again depending on whether oil prices go up 5 or 15 per cent, the U.S. oil import bill, now more than $26 billion, could grow by between $1.7 and $5.2 billion. The economy then would suffer a real Gross National Product loss of .2 to .6 per cent. Lois Wilson SANTA FE HO scale model of famous Santa Fe diesel MK14 SPITFIRE mi 1 id ? UPI Ttltphoto From Page 1 In other developments yesterday. Thomas P. Costin Jr., a former three-term mayor of Lynn, Mass., and veteran Postal Service officer, said he has an "excellent" chance to become U.S. postmaster general. Costin is one of seven men being considered by Carter for the office. Costin, 51, has been a postmaster for 15 years and was appointed to the job by President Kennedy. Italy's Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti conferred with Mondale in the first direct consultation between a foreign government chief and leaders of Carter's prospective administration. . Andreotti also talked with Secretary of State-designate Cyrus Vance, lunched with Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and conferred with Ford administration economic experts and a Senate delegation. After spending almost an hour with Andreotti, Vance said he would not discuss details but that the talks covered all aspects of Italian affairs. It was learned that Carter spent about $6 million in the last two weeks of his successful presidential campaign, half of it on a last-minute media blitz and airline travel, his campaign records showed. Post's Wire A couple of weeks ago Post Editor Tom Kelly went to the Associated Press Managing Editors' meeting in New York. He came back with a citation to The Post for outstanding contributions to the news and photo service. Some readers may not understand the relationship between this paper and the AP. Reid Miller, AP bureau chief in Miami, was kind enough to answer some questions for me that I hope will explain things. The Palm Beach Post is one of about 1,500 newspapers in this country which belong to the Associated Press. AP is a nonprofit cooperative, much like a rural farm or electric cooperative. Members pay a fee to belong and share their news with other members. Thus when something like the Palm Beach Towers jewel robbery happens in this area, we are responsible for getting that news to other members through the AP, which is the medium of exchange. Newspapers usually supply the wire service with information voluntarily. The AP rewrites the news before it is put on the wire for use in other papers. Readers in Portland will not be as interested in all the details of the robbery as The Post's local readers are. ft A ( " "I Tho PENGUIN FREEZER Politics Joseph A. Califano, another former adviser to LBJ. Califano, once Johnson's special assistant for domestic affairs, advised Carter on family-related matters during the campaign and could be under consideration for a Carter administration position. However, sources said it was more likely that his meeting with Carter was in his capacity as an adviser rather than as a potential appointee. Mrs. Pfeiffer left IBM earlier this year to go into business as a public affairs consultant. Her husband Ralph is a senior vice president of IBM. She was a White House Fellow in 1966 and serves as a trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation. It also was learned yesterday that Judge Shirley M. Hofstedler of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is being considered for attorney general. Reached at her office in Los Angeles, she declined to comment on any aspect of the situation, including whether she would be willing to step down from her lifetime judgeship to accept a cabinet slot. Rep. Barbara Jordan (D-Tex.) also is regarded as a top candidate for attorney general. She apparently will talk with Carter in Washington later this week, although the preliminary schedule released yesterday by the Carter transition organization does not reflect it. Sources said Ms. Jordan also is on a list of possible appointees to the position of U.N. ambassador. Meanwhile, it was learned that Carter aides have been in touch with friends of Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman (D'.N.Y.) ascertaining her qualifications for possible appointment to a high administration post. Carter and Vice President-elect Walter F. Mondale conducted the interviews jointly for 45 minutes, and then Carter spent 15 minutes alone with each of the individuals. Top Carter aides Charles Kirbo, Hamilton Jordan and Greg Schneiders conferred with Carter after the final Interview last night. Because of foggy and rainy conditions, Carter drove the 160 miles from his home in Plains to Atlanta yesterday morning. After stopping for a checkup with his dentist, Dr. L.R. Sanderson of Atlanta, he continued to the governor's mansion, where he resided in 1971-75. Carter is scheduled to meet with several governors shortly after his arrival in Washington tonight. Among them is Cecil Andrus of Idaho He is rumored as a likely choice for" secretary of the interior. the Carter camp also disclosed yesterday that Carter will meet Thursday with Sens. Abraham Ribicoff; (D-Conn.) and Richard Stone (D-Fla ) to discuss the Middle East and with United Auto Workers President Leonard Woodcock. , , Woodcock has removed himself from consideration for a cabinet job. It was unclear whether Ribicoff and Stone were meeting with Carter to offer their advice on names which remain under consideration of whether they are possible Cabinet nominees. Ribicoff once served as secretary of Health, Education and W Mare. (' listening Post (Si) fonz,e cher VTr .... $799 AVE. WEST PALM BEACH, FL. SAT. 10 A.M. TO 9 P.M. SUN.

While the AP depends to a great extent on the cooperation of newspapers throughout the country, it is interesting to note it has the largest staff of any news organization in Washington, D.C. AP also has its own staff in each state capital. And AP maintains bureaus in more than 60 countries around the world. The Associated Press provides news for radio and TV broadcasts, giving television still photographs, not film. You may have noticed that I often explain an error in The Post by saying that is the way the wire service sent it to us. Since AP sends more than 2 million words a day over its wires, and since human beings are involved in every step, there is room for error. The Post uses other wire services besides the AP and we'll talk about them in the future. (Do you have a comment, complaint or correction on something you've read in The Post?
