Monday. December 19. 1977 HOPK <AHK.» STAK WHAT'S A MULTIMILLIONAIRESS dolnginTdisco? Exactly what a lot of the rich and beautiful people were do ng recently — dancing up a storm. Greek shipping heiress Christina Onassis was one of the international set celebrities who turned out for a bash at New York's currently popular Studio 54. Panel ideas needed for energy solution, says Arkla president JONRSBOKO. Ark. (AP) The president of Arkansas I/niisiana Gas Co. said Sunday President Carter should back off and let congressional committees come up with their own ideas of what should be done about the nation's energy situation. Sheffield Nelson of Little Rock said if that were done, Congress probably would be able to pass an energy package. In a televised interview, Nelson said he is disappointed that it has taken this long for an energy bill to get through Congress. But, he said, the energy problem is not easily solved. "I do think President Carter deserves a lot of credit for having the nerve to pursue such a complex issue, and not just.let it'lay by the side, as it has for many years," Nelson said. He said he believes the president is not getting enough advice from outside sources and is depending too much on Congress and the federal bureaucracy to tell him what to do about the energy problem. He feels the problem is complicated by the fact that the decision makers in Washington have conflicting figures on the energy situation. "I think nobody in the country, in my honest opinion, in- cluding the Federal Power Commission, as a single body, has touch with the entire situation to the degree that they can say safely what the situation is from one area of the country to another." Nelson said the energy problem will be the most critical problem facing the country for the next decade. "I think the next decade will determine what our children and their children will be able to use in terms of fuel." Arkla provides more than 85 percent of the natural gas needs of Arkansas, and Nelson foresees no need to curtail supplies to customers this winter. He said Arkla has 146 million cubic feet of gas more per day for the 60 peak days this winter than 'it had last winter when • there were some curtailments. But Nelson feels even with a full month of sub-freezing temperatures, Arkla still would not have to curtail supplies to hospitals, churches, homes, and other "human-needs" customers. "We will have absolutely no curtailments of human-needs customers, regardless of the type weather we have this winter," Nelson said. Nelson made his comments on KAIT-TV's In Focus program.
