(Studio) Energy bill is most important item on agenda, according to President Carter; he meets with congress members with regard to bill.
REPORTER: Tom Jarriel

(DC) Carter meets with House members of energy conference committee to ask them to stand firm on House provisions of bill, which Senator wants to weaken. President says he's prepared to stay in Washington, DC until bill is worked out. [CARTER - doesn't anticipate having to cancel planned world trip in November, but would do so if bill not completed by then.] Wisdom of such announcement is questioned, but White House aides say if opponents of bill know president willing to cancel trip, they won't be tempted to mess around.
REPORTER: Sam Donaldson

(DC) House votes against cargo preference bill, canceling Carter campaign promise. Debate is less on issues of bill than on lobbying efforts of supporters. This is 2nd major defeat for labor in House this year
