Schlesinger says Carter plan not perfect, not finished product, in speech to League of Women Voters. Senator version of bill would allow secretary to suggest prices and President to veto; Schlesinger indicates he'll work for defeat of House bill. [SCHLESINGER - will make administration views known strongly.]
