Focuses on the encountering of U.S. President Jimmy Carter by foreign and domestic newspapers. Report that nowadays, there is no need to think about what to do--just say--Carter's ineffective and everybody nods; View that the tendency has even begun to spread within the Carter administration; Suggestion that if Americans decide to replace him after one term, they can do it in good time, but for a while they had better let up on needless attacks; View that this could well begin with Congress, which has made some sort of virtue out of non-cooperation with a president of its own party; Report that there are signs of hope that Congress and the administration can begin to work as though they are branches of the same government.
