onthejob training programs and federal incentives to prevent layoffs Other incentives suggested by Samuels or the mayors includ ed an urban development bank which would use federal funds to provide business with lowin terest loans for locating or ex panding in a city and to cities for funding certain economic projects Our problem isnt that we dont have job opportunities because we do said George Moscone of San Francisco Were hurt because we pro vide jobs to about 250000 people who live outside the city Richard Fulton of Nashville said another problem facing the nations big cities is the flight of industry overseas where la bor is cheaper NEW YORK AP An en gineroom fire that disabled an American container ship carry ing dangerous cargo 600 miles at sea Sunday appeared to have been

Sun day in a row to win admittance to the allwhite Plains Baptist Church But Carter said through an aide that he has reason to hope his home church policy dening entrance to blacks will be changed at a church conference to be held after worship services next Sunday Spokesman Jody Powell said Carter and his family have been relaxing and resting The Presidentelect told reporters as he left services at Christ Episcopal Church that he and some friends caught 17 sea trout and bass Saturday in a very good fishing afternoon Powell said he filled Carter in on the latest exclusion of the black minister

He said last week that he had a previous engagement and dea cons on Sunday said he was on vacation Deacons asked for the Rev Mr Edwards resignation after he criticized their refusal to admit the Rev

Sunday deacons for cibly restrained the Rev Mr King from entering the church through a basement doorway after Sunday school classes ended and the front doors to the church were locked as serv ices began I hope that the church con ference will be able to reach an amicable conclusion and guar antee the right of all to worship without regard to race Powell said He described Carters mood as concerned and hopeful the situation can be changed Powell said Carter would at tend the meeting next Sunday and may try to convince others to change the church policy Inflation May Be Early Challenge for Carter Keystone Republicans Still Have No Game Plan By WILLIAM WILLIAMS HARRISBURG AP Theyre suffering from defeat after defeat at the polls and dwindling registration but Pennsylvania Republicans have no game plan to alter their fu ture course Party leaders have a mixed bag of ideas on why Republican candidates are losing and what might be doneto stop what ap pears to be a disastrous fall But as a group they have no magic formula to pull out of that dive They talk about leadership and organization and grassroots support but no one has specific ideas cr changes Last Tuesdays presidential election in which US Senate candidate John Heinz was the only Republican on the state wide ticket to win was noth ing new for the party Its for tunes have been dwindling for years There was even liltle con nection between the Heinz cam paign and his party He didnt mention the word Republican in most of his ad vertising He didnt identify himself with other GOP candi dates in his speeches He didnt ask for a great deal of moral support from the State Sen Henry Hager said there wan good reason for that Heinz had to appeal to other than Republican voters to win due to the registration said Hager Statewide Democrats had 750000 more registered voters Hager himself a possible gu bernatorial candidate in 1978 says the Republican problem goes back to 1932 That year the Democratic party stole the role of Innovator and the Republican party ac cepted the rote of brakeman he says Since then the chief role of Republicans has been to put the brakes on Democratic spend ing Hager claims JUST WAIT

according to the post master By R GREGORY NOKES WASHINGTON AP Its too early to be sure but in flation could raise an early challenge to Jimmy Carters economic programs next year forcing him to resort to special antiinflation measures to save them Carter said during his cam paign he would like to have standby authority to impose wage and price controls if needed but that he didnt think they would ever be used However economic statistics issued last week have caused at least one Carter economic ad viser to wonder whether in flation wont be more of a prob lem than Carter thought The Labor Departments re port on wholesale prices for Oc tober showed industrial prices increased a full one per cent Military Parade the biggest increase in a year Even worse industrial prices have increased at a steady rate for the past five months Even tually these increases will show up at the consumer level Another increase in world oil prices appears certain when the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries meets in midDecember possibly as much as 15 per cent Higher prices for gasoline heating oil and overalLproduction costs would be the Inevitable result Since unemployment also in creased in October to 79 per cent it raised the possibility for one adviser that Carter could be severely tested early in his administration with both worsening inflation and an unemployment rate stuck at nearly 8 per cent If that happens one has to consider the full range of op tions he has been talking about on the price side said the ad viser who did not want to be quoted by name He said Car ter probably wouldnt push Con gress for authority to impose controls if inflation stayed at around 5 to 6 per cent but would want such authority if price hikes began to approach levels of 10 per cent or more Carter also favors giving au thority to the Council on Wage and Price Stability to delay price increases in some key in dustries Advisers say he almost cer tainly will follow through early in his administration on a plan to convene a conference of business labor and government leaders to seek a cooperative approach toward restraining price hikes Carter Says He Hopes Subdued For Republican Help MOSCOW AP The Soviet Union staged one of its smallest annual military parades in his tory Sunday to mark the 58th anniversary of the Communist revolution It presented no new military equipment and even toned down the marching style of its troops The Soviet army and navy are reliably guarding the cause of revolution socialism and peace Defense Minister Dmitri F Ustinov announced to the marchers from his place with the rest of the Soviet lead ership atop Lenins mausoleum The collection of armored personnel carriers artillery pieces and surfacetoair and surfacetosurface missiles that rolled for six minutes through Red Square included no weap ons not shown last year For the second year no tanks and other tracked vehicles were shown possibly to spare the paving of the square and ac cess streets through the capital WASHINGTON AP Pres identelect Jimmy Carter says he intends to include Republi cans in his administration and hopes many members of the loyal opposition will support his domestic and foreign pol icies The Republican Party con tinues to reflect the political views of millions of Ameri cans Carter said in an inter view published Sunday in US News 4 World Report I expect to include Republi cans in my administration I wilt seek the advice of Republi can leaders in Congress in the business world and elsewhere and I hope that a great many Republicans will support my goals and programs In foreign affairs the newly elected Democrat said he hopes to reestablish a basic bipartisanship and will try never to lose sight of the fact that partisan divisions are al ways secondary to one common devotion to this country and the wellbeing of its people Carter said he feels the vot erschoice of a new President from outside Washington in dicates that the people want new policies and new directions from government I dont think our people want sweeping change They do want prudent responsible imaginative and efficient pro grams that are understood by the public and that can effec tively address the serious social and economic programs we face the Democratic Presi dentelect said He said the biggest domestic problem facing the country is the economy and he intends to make a balanced attack on in flation and unemployment which he called the twin evils Phila US Attorney May Refuse To Resign PHILADELPHIA AP US Atty David Marston a Republican appointee has de cided to break with tradition and refuse to resign under the admininstration of Democrat Jimmy Carter I dont think theres been a protocol since Watergate said Marston I think its a differ ent ball game I think all the rules have changed Historically a change in the White House means a wholesale turnover in the 94 US attor neys office around the country But Marston appointed to the Philadelphia office last July un der the sponsorship of Pennsyl vania Sen Richard Schweiker told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he is counting on his record as an active prosecutor as well as the politics of Penn sylvania to protect him in his job Senatorial courtesy in US attorney appointments is well established he said I serve at the pleasure of the president Any president can replace me But he said the tradition of giving the senator from the state involved basic approval over the nominination is pretty strong Were going to make clear that everybody knows were digging in our heels and stay ing Marston said Pennsylvania has two Re publican senators Schweiker and John Heinz who defeated Democrat William Green for the seat vacated by Republican Hugh Scott the Senate minority leader The office of Philadelphia Democratic Mayor Frank Rizzo has come under Marstons scrutiny which may make it more difficult for Marston to remain in office Marstons Po litical Corruption Unit has in dicted several of Rizzos sub ordinantes including Phila delphia Housing Authority exec utive Martin Abrams Rizzo is said to believe the presidentelect owes him a voice in deciding who the US attorney in Philadelphia will be because Rizzo delivered enough votes to assure Carter of win ning Pennsylvanias 27 elec toral votes Any time any prosecutor anywhere is doing an active vigorous job youll have peoph who dont want him around Marston said
