A recent proposal to create an
Alternative Energy Corporation has
drawn praise from government officials
and the public, and if successful, the

The purpose of the non-profit

the need for further power plants will

WASHINGTON (AP) With the oil
rich Middle East in turmoil, President
Carter asked Congress on Monday to
approve a $616 billion election-year
budget that aims most new spending at
energy and defense programs.
Carter's budget proposal for the 1981
fiscal year was the largest in the nation's
history and represented a $52 billion
increase over this year's federal spending.
Military funding got the biggest boost,
growing from $127.4 billion in 1980 to
$142.7 billion in 1981.
There was little new money for most
domestic programs, but dollars were
found for job training, housing and
revenue-sharing programs to mollify key

the touch for health procedure by turning my
kit arm in a circular pattern; he was testing my
muscles. This would indicate which parts oi
my body were weak; he said.
The very first muscle was weak. As he took
my arm and began to exercise it, my left
shoulder immediately popped. My arm was
not rotating correctly, he informed me. This is
what it is all about, he said finding the weak
muscles and strengthening them.
h He put his strong fingers into my chest, as if
he were kneading dough, and massaged the
area near my left shoulder. He then tested it
again. He took my arm in his large hands, bent
my elbow and told me to push toward him
while he pushed my arm in the opposite
direction. It did not pop this time.
This is how he tested each muscle during the
30 minute period. He put pressure on each part
of my body to see if I could withstand the
pressure. If so, the muscles were strong. If not,
they were weak.

"We are fortunate in North Carolina
because we have the natural resources to
exploit these options," Hunt said.
The commission has proposed a 13
member governing board which would
head the new corporation. But there is a
dispute over who will represent the
majority on the board utility company
members or public members. The
consumer groups involved advocate that
the public have the majority of seats
because they feel the utility companies
would not represent their interests as well
as public members.

interests; they want to make a profit,"

Carter has been unable to fulfill his 1976
campaign promise to balance the budget.
This year's deficit, which Carter had
expected to hold close to last year's $27.7
billion, now is projected to exceed $40
billion. The sharp increase was blamed in
part on U.S. spending for grain purchases
and Pakistani aid in the wake of the

retested the muscle to make sure it was
working. Usually, it was.
When the touch for health procedure was
over, I got off the bed feeling like I had just
worked out at the YMCA. My body was
relaxed and my muscles felt loose. I felt like the

quickly explained that there is a big difference

usually associate with massage. Touch for

Kennedy blames Carter for Iron crisis
WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, seeking to rejuvenate
his presidential campaign, on Monday blamed President Carter for the Iranian
crisis and said restoring draft registration is a "step across the threshhcld cf
Cold War II."
In his own state of the union message, Kennedy also called for a six-month
wage and price freeze and immediate gasoline rationing.
And the Massachusetts Democrat, whose loss to Carter in the Iowa precinct
caucuses last week prompted speculation about the future of his candidacy,
declared he was in the race to stay.
There was no immediate response from the White House, but Carter has
opposed mandatory wage-price controls.
Saudis boost oil price by 02 a barrel
NEW YORK (AP) Saudi Arabia, the largest member of the Organization
of Petroleum Exporting Countries and the supplier of about 7.4 percent cf U.S.
oil needs, told customers Monday it has increased its base crude oil price by $2
to $26 a barrel, Exxon Corp. announced.
The 8.3 percent increase in the price of Arabian light crude, the traditional
benchmark on which other OPEC prices are based, was retroactive to Jan. 1
and had been expected by many analysts.
The move lifted the average price of a 42-gallon barrel of OPEC oil to about
$28 from $26.83. A year ago, OPEC oil sold for an average of $13.50.

Games snubbed by panel
WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate
Foreign Relations Committee voted 14-0
Monday to urge American athletes and
sports fans to snub the Summer Olympics
in Moscow if the International Olympics
Committee allows the Games to proceed.
The panel called on the international
committee to agree to the request made
by the U.S. Olympic Committee on
Saturday that the games be canceled or
transferred if Soviet troops remain in
Afghanistan beyond the Feb. 20 deadline
set by President Carter.
Discussion on the resolution began
almost immediately on the Senate floor,
but a vote was not expected until Tuesday
at the earliest.
Chairman Frank Church, D-Idaho,
. said the committee's primary concern was
that the Soviets would use the Olympics
to put "the stamp of approval on the
invasion of Afghanistan and the stamp of
indifference on the world's reaction to
that brutal and dangerous act of
Church said that unlike the House
version, passed last week by a 386-12
vote, the Senate resolution docs not
propose that other games be set up as an
alternative to the Moscow Olympics.
Nonetheless, Christopher said the

He said that while that might be an
alternative for the future, "we have no
present intention of restricting the right
of any American to travel to the Olympic
Games in Moscow."
CoL Donald Miller, executive director
of the U.S.. Olympic Committee, made
clear that in its unanimous vote Saturday
the committee did not call for boycotting
the Olympics outright. He said that most
of the world's Olympic committees
oppose a boycott if the Olympics are
proceeding in Moscow.
A panel of three Olympic athletes were
divided on whether the Olympics should
go ahead as scheduled.
"Suddenly my desire to compete in the
Olympic Games is an unpatriotic act,"
said Anita de Frantz of Princeton, N j.t

originally had similar views he now

effort," Oerter said. "I think a message
