NEW YORK (AP) A top- level group of oil and gas execu- tives began today an 38-month study of United States long- range energy requirements. "One of the most crucial and pressing problems facing us today is the source of our future energy said John G. McLean, president of the Conti- nental Oil Co.

Mr. Kierans said Ms depart- ment's concern is "that waste- ful duplication is not only infla- tionary but anti-social in the sense that (be whole community would pay tor Ihe excess capac- ity without receiving any bene- and that regulated compa- nies "would continue to benefit .from a set rate of return on their capital whether it was fully utilized or not." Any development of communi- cations to the "wired city" stage cannot be allowed to come piecemeal, sen-ing privileged interests and without sufficient regard to society as a whole, Mr. Kierans said. INTEREST DWINDLING "Already we can see some disturbing trends. Credit and financial institutions all over this country are creating infor- n: a t i o n and communications systems designed to improve the competitive position of indi- vidual institutions or organiza- tions. There is often little con- sideration for the possibility that these services are being duplicated elsewhere and there seems to be little interest in building systems that could be integrated' with others at some future date. "And while advantages are being given to businesses through, the efficiencies of com- puters and communications sys- tems there are few countervail- ing protections for the victims of mistakes or invasions of pri- vacy." Mr. Kierans said his point is not that private companies are incapable of social concerns. But where "short-term commer- cial benefits are unlikely" the government would have to lead the way.

Uy JOHN ItOUEItlCK TOKYO (AP) China today is like the man who prompts us to ask uneasily, "Now what did he mean by that? when all he said was: "Good morning." Affability is not a usual trait among the Communist Chinese. Since coming to power in 1049 they have gained a reputation for ill humor, disdain and self- righteousness in relations with other countries. Yet in 1S70 Mao Tse-tung beams rather than glowers. He is friendly with Marshal Tito oC Yugoslavia, exchanges ambas- sadors with the cordially de- tested Russians, shows more 'than a passing interest in the United Nations. He vims Uie flag down to half mast fcr Charles dc GauJle. All this raises questions whether Mao has turned over a j new leaf, now is disposed peace- ably to join the community of nations. The United States often has said it would be glad to improve relations once Peking changed an attitude of belligerency. The Americans anfl other concerned nations are locking for evidence of China's intentions now that a perhaps closer vote- looms in the United Nations. In other recent developments, Canada and Italy have recog- nized China. Observers seem more likely to find signs of change in study of Mao's domestic poli- cies, for any liberalization of Chinese foreign policy seem- ngly calls for decentralization at home, iooiiening of restrie- ions on China's millions. The draft of China's now con- stitution, soon to be presented to he NaMonal People's Congress for approval, holds out little impe for change. Instead of dis- icrsing the functions of govern- mcnt, Mao has gathered them Jghtly into his own hands and .hose of his designated succes- sor, Defence Minister Lin Pino.

The sum total of changes seems to point to fewer checks and balances in the power sys- tem, greater concentration of leadership at the top and hence more rigidity in domestic and foreign affairs.
