CREELEY(Co!o.)TRlBUXE Wed, Jung 1,197?. f'nger citfs fccc/c energy goafs By WILLIAM E. CLAYTON WASHINGTON (UPI) Energy adviser James Schlesinger today sharply cut back two goals of President Carter's energy program -- the number of homes that can be insulated, and the number that will get some solar heating and cooling. Schlesinger's testimony to the energy subcommittee of the House Commerce Committee came the day after the Congressional Budget Office had called Carter's solar energy goal "unattainably high" and the insulation hopes over-optimistic. Schlesinger said today Carter hopes that ultimately 90 per cent of America's homes will be insulated adequately. The new administration proposals probably will bring the total to M per cent by 1955, he said.. In its report Tuesday, the Congressional Budget Office had estimated 70 per cent insulation. "We will be back to you for additional measures," Schlesinger said, if the interim goal is being missed. Carter had set 2.5 million homes as the goal for some sort of solar energy by 1985. Schlesinger said the Carter solar energy program would probably reach 1.3 million homes by 1985. "Once again, we will be back to you for additional measures," he said. "The administration goal ... seems unattainably high," CBO director Alice Rivlin said Tuesday. "Achievement of that goal would require sales growth in excess of 75 per cent annually or a technical breakthrough ..; It is unlikely that a 75 per cent growth rate will occur, and a technical breakthrough cannot be counted upon." Her long report was the backup detail of a summary she reported in congressional testimony several weeks ago. Carter's main objective is to cut American dependence on · foreign oil by 4.S million barrels a day by 1985, below what it would be without his P'aiii Mrs. Rivlinsaid. But her office calculated Uie plan at "closer to 3.6 million barrels," she said. Carter projects having 44 per cent of new industry burning coal, but the budget office said it will be nearer 33 per cent. Carter expects Americans to cut their gasoline use by 10 per ce m, but the figures seem to predict 5 per cent, Mrs. Rivlin said. He wuits 90 per cent of the homes to be insulated, but 70 seems more like it, she added. Cuba, U.S. to exchange envoys A fire volunteer keeps an eye on a carefully controlled prairie fire near Russell, Minn., which is needed for some prairie plants to germinate.

(AP Wirephoto) By BARRY SCHWEID Associated Piess Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States and Cuba have a tentative agreement to exchange diplomats for the first time since the 1961 break in relations between the two countries, sources say. · Most details of the proposed exchange were worked out in New York by negotiators for the two sides, the sources said here Tuesday. They said an announcement is expected short- ·ly. The development represents another major step by the Carter administration toward restoration of formal ties with the Marxist Cuban government, even while the Cubans move military technicians in Ethiopia and otherwise establish their presence in Africa and Latin America. "·That's just the point," one U.S. official said. "It will be easier to talk to them about what they've been doing." A formal resumption of relations may be far off, although President Carter said Tuesday in Plains, Ga., that "full friendship" with Cuba is an ultimate goal. "I think we moved some first, faltering steps," Carter told reporters while taking a walk in his hometown. "But it eventually depends on them. We'll move as fast as they will." He said he had exchanged friendly messages with Cuban President Fide} Castro. After Castro ousted the rightist Batista government in 1959, the United States was cautious in its diplomatic dealings with the new government. Within two years, however, Washington concluded that Castro was WIN A CRUISE TO ALASKA! Visit just four Empire Savings branches ., Empire Savings makes finding our , branches easy.
