Affiliates Washout ‘Soap’ (Continued from page I) House today was subdued in light of the latest calls for Lance’s resignation. Press secretary Jody Powell told UPI the "basic feeling is that Bert deserves a chance to face those things before the committee," "Bert dearly wants that," said Powell. "He wants to meet them head on." Powell confirmed reports that presidential aide Hamilton Jordan flew to Sea Island, Ga., over the weekend to confer with Lance. He said Lance "wanted to talk" to Jordan, hut gave no details. As for Carter's reaction to the Ribicoff statements, Powell said, “I’m sure the human part of it has its impact ... it couldn’t help." Powell earlier said Carter strongly denied a Time Magazine report that Lance twice offered to resign and was turned down by the president. “It would he w iser for Bert Lance to resign,” Ribbicoft told Carter Monday. Ribicoff and Percy, the ranking GGP member of the Governmental Affairs Committee, met with Carter for 45 minutes at the White House to discuss "serious . . . allegations of illegalities” against Lance that were turned up by the panel’s staff during the past two weeks. It was the first mention of possible illegal actions. The comptroller of the currency’s recent report said Lance’s hanking practices may have been "unsafe and unsound." hut that he had done nothing criminally wrong Ribicoff summoned members of his committee to a special meeting this afternoon to reveal the nature of the allegations. It was not known if the meeting would be public. The Senate Banking Committee, chaired by Sen, William Proxmire. G Wis., a Lance critic, begins hearings on Lance-related matters later this month, and at least one other committee meeting was being scheduled Carter cut short a Labor Day stay at his Camp David, Md., retreat to meet at the White House with Lance and his wife LaBelle. The President then met with Ribicoff and Percy “The reason for today’s meeting." Ribicoff told reporters, "was to bring to the President’s attention allegations of illegality of serious enough nature that we felt an obligation to tell the President of our findings.” A presidential spokesman later issued a brief statement saying Carter "expressed his appreciation" to the senators and hoped the Ribicoff hearings would he conducted expeditiously to "allow all parties the opportunity to present the facts to the Anteri can people.” “Mr Lance is determined to make his position known publicly and wants a hearing." Ribicoff said. "He feels very strongly that he has been maligned, that his position in this case has not been stated, and he wants that opportunity." However, Ribicoff said he told Carter "it would be wiser for Bert Lance to resign." ■ "I don't think Bert Lance can he un effective Office of Management and Budget director pending these hearings and the investigation of all (he allegations,” he .added. Percy agreed, saying; "I have cor tainly strongly recommended to the President that Bert Lance resign in his own interest, or step aside." •WINDMILL (Continued from page 1) energy the utility purchases lf PSC figures are used, Russell said, that works out to $1.08 per kilowatt hour. This is less than what the consumer pays for electricity because it costs the utility more to generate power than it would a private homeowner, he said. The new rate proposal stems from the construction of a windmill in the Woodstock area. Prior to this new rnte, Central Hudson had no guidelines to provide charges for hook up fees. Morton Schiff, of Energy Shelter’s Inc and installer of the windmill, said he was not opposed to the proposal. “People must learn that energy is not free and is exhaust able," he said. "And if they must pay for electricity, then it will he regarded as more valuable," •RICKEN (Continuetf from page I) “If he (Kavanagh) denies there is political influence I will he forced to give further examples," said Ricken.
