WASHINGTON (UPI) Members of Congress negotiating compromise on energy legislation found little interest back vhome in a package of measures so controversial Congress could not complete action in months. House-Senate negotiators who spent the final weeks of 1977 inching toward compromise on President Carter's eneugy package said voters not only expressed little anger over congressional failure to enact energy legislation. Voters also expressed little concern. "There isnt a strong feeling of what the energy problem is on the part of the average person," said Rep. Frank Horton,.R-N.Y. "The average guy isn't concerned because he thinks there isn't a problem ... I don't know why people aren't concerned. I guess they have other things to think about. It's very frustrating..." President Cai;^ has been on national televiarin several times to appeal Tor public support for the series of measures and for public pressure on Congress to approve it. Conferees ended negotiations Christmas week without reaching agreement on the touchy issue of natural gas deregulation. The inaction torpedoed Carter's hopes of an energy plan in 1977 and further delayed other House- Senate negotiations completing work on energy taxes. In telephone interviews with a number of congressmen working on the House-Senate energy conference committee, lawmakers told UPI the top issue in Washington was barely discussed in home districts. Sen. John Durkin, D-N.H., said polls show energy a top concern, but "it has not been reflected h^re (in New Hampshire). Probably less than 10 percent of our mail deals with it." ' The constituents of Rep. Daniel Rostenkowski appear to have put the issue "on the back, burner" during the holidays, the Illinois Democrat said. "Amazingly, my mail does not indicate too nriuch concern about the energy situation," gaid Sen. Spark Matsunaga, D-Hawaii. "I suppose this is because of the holiday rush. I am getting more communications on the Panama Canal." Matsunaga found some support for Congress to enact the three energy bills conferees have mostly completed — energy " conservation, industrial; conversion to coal, and uUlity rate changes. Rep. Al UUman, D-Ore., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, has received no'mail on energy since the conference broke up, his office said. The original>Carter package was "one of the most complex single recommendations made to a Congress in modern times," said Rep. Tom Foley, D-Wash. Negotiators probably will complete the energy program for Congressional action by February, he said. "The president may have been overly ambitious," Foley said. "Maybe he overloaded the system a little bit by trying to achieve all sorts of goals and campaign promises in his first year." The fly that cahfie to dinner NEW DELHI, India (UPI) — It was lunchtime. Indian Prime Minister Morarji Desai was President Carter's guest at the U.S. Embassy. There were uninvited guests, too Carter tried to ignore the man hovering behind him at the table, but the man was hard to ignore. He was swatting flies. One landed on the table. The fly-swatter man's arm dartied at his prey. A miss. • Again. . . Missed again. Finally, success, the man reached over Carter's shoulder, collected the corpse! carried it off. "That's the only thing they will show on the evening n^ws," Carter cracked. 12—Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Galif.

WE WEtCOME FOOD STAfVtPS WASHINGTON (UPI) The nation's hottest housing markets during 1978 are expected to develop in 12 comparatively small to me;|(lium- sized urban regions scattered arourid the country. the communities ideWified in an industry forecast are Albuquerque, N.M.; Austin, Texas; Charleston, S.C.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and environs; the greater Harrisburg, Pa., area; Hartford, Conn.; Kalamazoo, Mich., and suburbs; Knoxville, Tenn.; the Lincoln, Neb., region; the metroplex centering on Riverside, Calif.; greater Seattle, Wash.; and Tulsa, Okla. Investors Mortgage Insurance Co., a Boston firm which annually forecasts housing trends, said the 12 communities were chosen because they were the only Ones in the 50 states which appeared among the top in ithree important categories: projected actual sales of ijew and existing single-family homes, performance in relation to t^e size of the local market, and potential improvement over 1977 sales figures. "They are the ones on everybody's lists," a spokesman said. Jackson W. Goss, IMIC president, said pace of sales and rate of growth probably are the most important measurements of a Jjotre ^ng market's health. "By these standards, this group of localities will out-^ perform the major urban centers in 1978," he said. The 12 "sleeper cities" were identified through information collected from government and private sources, thrift institutions and IMIC's own sales force. IMIC said other cities are bound lo be good home markets in 1978. "We know, for example," the spokesman said, "St. Louis will be Hot in 1978 but it didn't fit into all three categories When we'checked for 'hot building towns' only 12 came out.", "Following 1977's outstanding performances by big city markets — San Diego, Chicago, Houston and Washington, D.C., for example," Goss said, "this year will see a broadening of the current housing boom into the second tier of urban areas.'.' He said the 1978 • national housing scene generally will be effected by these trends: —Younger families as well as older couples, so-called empty nesters, are looking more for localities where husband and wife can work.
