Page 18 Garden City Telegram Thursday, December 1, 1977 Jimmy's House By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Carter has enthusiastically embraced Camp David, Md., as a private weekend hideaway, with emphasis on privacy. Carter has told aides he wants no public announcements when friends and associates visit him there unless he is holding a business meeting. During the long Thanksgiving weekend, therefore, the White House announced that Secretary of State Cyrus Vance went to Camp David to brief Carter on the chief diplomat's recent Latin American tour. But there was no announcement of the fact that three top White House assistants, Jody Powell, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Frank Moore, spent much of the weekend there with their families. In fact, after a reporter learned that the trio and their kin were bound for Camp David, an aide to press secretary Powell conferred with her boss, then called the reporter to say the information was in error. Since a press secretary's credibility is perhaps his greatest assel, this raised reporlorial eyebrows. Questioned about the matter, Powell contended there had been a misunderstanding rather than any intent to lie. It is known that Powell is under considerable pressure from Carter to keep the weekend guest lists secret. The press secretary once told a reporter the president looks on Camp David as an extension of his private living quarters at the White House, where the comings and goings of personal guests rarely are recorded. There are limits on the openness of any administration, and Carter's is no exception. While the president and his associates were wrestling this week with plans for a Middle East summit in Cairo, a delicate operation to be sure, State Department sources were leaking the fact that Carter had decided to send a U.S. representative to the talks. When Powell saw one such report, he stormed, "Can't those guys over there ever keep their mouths "shut!" When Powell read that the president's evangelist sister, Ruth Carter Stapleton, had brought Hustler publisher Larry Flynt to God, he cracked, "Now that she has warmed up on the easy ones, she can go to work on Billy." The president himself once joked that if the First Baptist Church of Plains, Ga., banned beer drinkers, brother Billy Carter would try to attend services the next Sunday — just to prove he could do it. No need to add that kid brother is not a churchgoer. More fun and games: A man waiting for an appointment with a Carter aide read aloud a crossword puzzle clue: "A president who was not elected." The man presumably knew the answer, former President Gerald Ford. But that did not stop a White House secretary from suggesting Hamilton Jordan, Carter's principal assistant. Russians Leave Field Clear Economic Index Climbs By BARRY SCHWE1D Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — By turning down Egypt's invitation to attend preliminary peace talks, the Russians have left a clear field to the United States to resume its role of principal mediator between the Arabs and Israel. But the Carter administration is so lukewarm to President Anwar Sadat's bold diplomatic initiative that there is little likelihood of Washington seizing the opportunity. Administration policymakers remain convinced that lasting peace cannot be achieved in the Middle East without Moscow's participation. They are reluctant, therefore, to adopt the tactics employed by former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger — keep the Russians on the sidelines while forging agreements based on mutual trust of the United States. Also, these White House and State Department officials want to concentrate on a comprehensive settlement to be negotiated wth Syria, which is flirting with Arab "rejection- APNews Analysis ists," who won't even the accept the fact of Israel's existence, and creating a Palestinian homeland. This course to Geneva is barred by procedural obstacles the administration believes can be cleared only with Russian assistance. And leading U.S. officials are reluctant to risk deepened divisions in the Arab world by aggressively supporting Egypt's overtures to Israel. So, as Sadat goes further out on a limb, the administration consults with the Soviets on a high level, publicly urges on them a "constructive role" and, with no real enthusiasm, allows that direct talks between Egypt and Israel could be "useful." Unheeded is the advice of now private citizen Kissinger to go it alone, without the Russians. "I do not think the Soviet Union is necessary to bring matters beyond this point," he said after Sadat's unprecedented Nov. 19 mission to Jerusalem. "I would cer- tainly not emphasize the position of the Soviet Union at this point. It isn't necessary." There is considerable evidence, meanwhile, that Sadat launched his peace campaign partly out of concern over an enlarged Soviet role in the Middle East. The joint U.S.- Soviet statement Oct. 1 building up the Russians distressed the Egyptain leader about as much as Israel was upset by its recognition of Palestinian "legitimate rights." Sadat long ago expelled Russian military advisers from his country, casting his -lot with the United States, who he frequently said, held "99 percent of the cards." Now, with Sadat's dramatic opening to Israel, undertaken with negligible notice to the United States, the dynamics of Middle East diplomacy may have changed so radically that Washington could not assume its old matchmaker mantle even if it wanted to. After 29 years of icy hostility and four wars, Egypt and Israel are finally dealing directly with each other. Sadat says he is still seeking an overall settlement involving the parties, but that he will move ahead independently if they do not participate. Getting used to direct negotiations, Egypt and Isral could reduce the U.S. mediator role to that of message carrier and interested bystander.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The partment said. government index designed to predict future economic trends rose in October for the fourth consecutive month, the Commerce Department said today. The index of leading indicators increased 0.7 percent, after rising 0.4 percent in September, 1.7 percent in August and 0.1 percent in July, the de- PASTEL PORTRAITS FOR CHRISTMAS $15.00 By Appointment 275-5116 Dorothy Sullivan: Artist Despite the increase, contracts and orders for plants and equipment declined for the month. Economists have been counting on business plans to expand to keep the economy improving. The over-all increase was mildly encouraging, but fell short of the increases of 2 to 3 percent per month which followed the 1974-75 recession. Among indicators contributing to the increase were a longer average work week, a lower layoff rate, rising prices for sensitive products, the money supply, new factory * * R * H g suret D the prescription shop 602 N. 7th Garden City S2.98 Value 100 VITAMIN (.

Depressing the index, besides orders for plants and equipment, were falling stock prices. Speed of delivery by vendors was unchanged. The report also showed that September was a slightly better month than previously calculated. Th° department revised the c °otember increase up-.vai from 0.3 percent to 0 4 percent, based on new information. The index stood at 133.8 in October, meaning that economic activity appeared to be 33.8 percent higher than in the base period of 1967. The Carter administration is counting on an improvement in the economy in the fourth quarter to keep unemployment from getting worse. The nation's output grew at an annual rate of 4.7 percent in the third quarter after rises of nearly 7 percent in the first half, and economists are looking at the economy's winter performance to see if a tax cut will be needed next year. Contributing most to the October increase was a rise in the money supply, which can mean more spending by consumers and businesses but can also mean increased inflation. Building permits also showed a big increase, as the construction industry was finishing one of its best years on record. However, the decline in plant and equipment contracts was 0.5 percent, a sharp drop in the monthly index. Economists figure that consumer spending probably has peaked and that only investments by businesses can create enough jobs.
