(Plains, Georgia) 1 concern of group is Carter's statement with regard to difficulty of finding qualified women; group had worked with Carter-Mondale transition team, supplying lists of women. [Jane McMICHAEL - says group knows lists are good; most of them are overqualified. Says there's probably been communication breakdown.] After meeting, women say they feel better. [New York Lieutenant Governor Mary Anne KRUPSAK - says Carter sympathetic to cause and recognizes, because of sex discrimination, women wouldn't have long service records men have.] Group asks Carter to consider former Representative Bella Abzug for job.
