Mandatory Actions? Zarb said it is now necessary to decide whether mandatory actions must be taken to achieve Ford’s objective. White House Press Set retary Hon Nessen said the purpose of Saturday’s meeting was to give the President a “broad look” at the problem and to review the options open to him “The President will make his decisions after he has seen all of the analytical work and studied the options at his disposal,” said Zarb. who is awaiting senate confirmation of his nomination to head the Federal Energy Administration Asked to assess the current fuel supply situation.

Among the examples Zarb cited in describing what might be done were a return to the mandatory fuel allocation program imposed last year at the height of the Arab oil boycott: an increase in the federal gasoline tax; and a limit on oil imports, either in Mystery Gift ji; It arrived again Right i jj: on schedule and as much a # mystery as ever — a check | * for $750 for Camp Good \ I Health.
