    Background: PRESIDENT CARTER AT HIS DAILY BRIEFING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. SAID THAT MANY IN THE NATION BELIEVED THERE WAS NO SHORTAGE AND THAT THE RECENT PETROL CRISIS WAS CONTRIVED. +THIS,+ CARTER SAID, + IS A FALSE ANALYSIS+ AND HE URGED THE CONGRESS TO ENACT THE WINDFALL PROFITS TAX IMMEDIATELY.

BUT THIS INSTUTITE AS OTHERS WILL NEED MORE MONEY IF SOLAR ENERGY IS TO BECOME AMERICA'S MAIN ENERGY SOURCE.
