Chief Executive Sees ‘New Era’ for Nation Colstrip^ Opponents Point to Alternatives By Hugh Van Swearing^ Associated Press Writer ENFORCING the government's directive to electric power companies to convert to coal, Federal Energy Administrator Frank G. Zarb announced several Midwest power companies have received stiff warnings with more expected to go out to East coast plants. Beirut Groups Battle By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford said today he senses the United States may be entering a new era of firmness, responding to challenges and being ready to “stick with it” when faced with world problems. Partly by its actions in die Mayaguez affeir, he told European newsmen in a White House interview, the nation is resisting a tendency to drift into neo-isolationism and is prepared “to act decisively.” Hie President acknowledged that at times the United States has isolationist tendencies. He traced recent polls reflecting this mood to Vietnam, but added: “The American people are getting out from under that trauma.” On other matters, Ford made these observations: — He rejects congressional suggestions that detente is tilted in favor of the Soviet Union. “I strongly disagree with that viewpoint,” the President said, and those Mio assert it “are not correct” Where points of friction arise with the Soviet Union, he said, “we intend to be very firm, but detente gives us an opportunity to be flexible.” Ford said he beUeved he and Soviet leader Leonid L Brezhnev would have to personally make some of the final decisions in the effort to reach a new Strategic Arms Limitation Agreement He anticipated this would occur when Brezhnev visits the United States, “hopefully this fall” -His impression is “that the Western alliance is very strong and there is no reason why it can’t be made stronger ... We do have to upgrade and modernize our military capabUity in the alliance. “Although I see problems in one or two countries, internally, basically our alliance is strong,” the President said. He said his trip to a NATO summit meeting in Brussels next week is “aimed at solidifying and making more cohesive this relationship,” economically, diplomatically and military. “As long as the United States does not pull out and continues to be a strong partner, the alliance will remain strong,” Ford said. He said he recognizes prob lems between Greece and Turkey over Cyprus, but he believes they can be solved. He said he was encouraged that there were recent meetings between the prime ministers of Greece and Turkey, and added he hoped to meet with leaders of both sides during the up-coming Brussels conference. -He feels the majority won by socialists in Portuguese notional elections, in Milch Communists gained only 15 per cent af the vote, has “not had a significant impact on those who control the government” Comp Jury Begins Work HELENA, Mont (AP) - Opponents to the construction of a 1,400-megawatt generating com- alternatives to the controversial project.

The NPRC is a rancher-envi-ronmentalist group whose members include some landowners in the Colstrip area where the complex would be built Part of the thrust of Gray* bill’s questions was to the effect that die utility companies had made up their minds to go ahead with the construction before giving detailed study to a1-te natives. In questioning George W. O’Connor, retired president of the Montana Power Co., Graybill explored alternatives such* Power’s business as as construction of coal-fired utility. He explained generating plants in other states, wind and solar power, and new hydroelectric facilities. The plan, proposed by Modula na Power, Puget Sound Power and Light, Portland General Electric, Washington Water Power, and Pacific Power and Light, calls for construction of two mine-mouth generating plants near a strip mine at Colstrip. ated by Western Energy Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of fee Montana Power Co. Graybill asked O’Connor if Montana Power chose the Colstrip site for the reason that Montana Power shareholders ultimately stood to gain from profits im the sale of Western Energy coal to fuel the power complex. O’Connor replied that the availability of coal, regardless of ownership, was a major factor in deciding to locate generating plants there. O’Connor acknowledged that Montana Power’s lrofits from operations of Western Energy are corporate profits separate and distinct from Montana a public that this means the Western Energy profits are not considered in computing Montana Power’s return on investments for rate-making purposes.
