(AP) — President-electJimmy Carter says the government shouldget tougher about requiring manufactur-ers to produce gasoline-saving automo-biles, because "the price of energy is goingto go up very rapidly."Reporting that one of his first "firesidechats" as president will be an appeal toAmericans to conserve energy, Carter saidMonday that while nuclear-power plantsmust be built as oil becomes scarcer and-more expensive, he wants to place greatestreliance on coal, solar energy and conser-vation of energy to meet the nation'senergy problems."Although I don't like to frighten people,I think the price of energy is going to go upvery rapidly," Carter said.Carter made the remarks in a long inter-view with CBS news anchorman WalterCronkite.Carter said he feels the government hasnot been firm about requiring auto makersto build "more efficient cars." Asked ifthat meant smaller vehicles, he replied,"In most instances, yes."The president-elect said nuclear powerplants are necessary, but he contended thegovernment has wavered in fixing rigidsafety standards. And he argued that thereshould be greater standardization of nucle-ar plants so fewer of them fall into the ex-perimental category.In the nearly two-hour interview, Carteralso said:— "I can't foresee any need for manda-tory wage-price controls."

But, "as ageneral principle," he believes the headsof the FBI and the CIA, because of secretassignments involved, should change withthe administration "rather than setting upa continuing hierarchy."— He will make his first Cabinet-levelappointment within a few days, naming At-lanta banker Bert Lance to be director ofthe Office of Management and Budget orpossibly Treasury secretary.— He said a Strategic Arms LimitationTalks agreement with the Soviet Union isbeing held up by differences in Ford's Cab-inet that "should have been resolvedmonths and months ago."— .Carter said Kissinger has told himthat Soviet leaders have never made a flatstatement that turned out to be a lie, whichPre-inauguration violence in Mexico CityGovernment investigators sift throughwreckage left by a bomb in the posh Po-lanco district of Mexico City.
