REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Plains, Georgia) Carter invites cameras to roll while discussion of energy issue goes on with advisers; sidesteps interview issue. [CARTER - makes short comment on matter. Press secretary Jody Powell answers questions but says little. [POWELL - says any who read article can see what Carter meant; Mondale and wife on road in better position to comment than he is.] Carter's minister at Plains Baptist Church comments on article. [Reverend Bruce EDWARDS - says from reports he's heard, Carter's point is that 1 shouldn't judge others when 1 has sin in own life; says language may distract from point of statement.]
