Grand juryprobes Mills campaign

By BROOKS JACKSON

quests by the now-disbanded
Senate Watergate committee to

WASHINGTON (') - A Water- app'ar for questioning.A
gate grand jury has questioneda
three current and former aides MILLS, asked for comment on
to Rep. Wilbur Mills about milk- the summoning of Goss and the
fund money used in the Arkan- other witnesses, said only. "I
sas Democrat's brief 1972 pres- don't know anything about it. I
idential campaign. just know they've been up there,
In recent weeks the Water- that'sall."
gate prosecutors'have summon-
ed Mills' administrative assist- Bullock, who received a sub-
ant, Oscar Eugene Goss,, and poena; confirmed in a telephone
two former campaign officials interview that she hid been
Charles Ward of Conway, Akr., questioned for about two hours
and Betty Clement Bullock o last Tuesday. But she added:
Little Rock.

"I'd just rather not comment on
it."
According to Watergate com-
mittee testimony, Bullock work-
ed as a secretary for the Mills
campaign for several months
while receiving salary and ex-
penses from the corporate funds
of the milk producers' co-op.
Ward, who headed the e a r ly
"draft-Mills" efforts in 1971 and
early 1972, was not immediately
available for comment.
CONCERNING the $5,000 cash
gift, Goss said he had testified
that he has "no independent re-
collection" of having nandled
the money.

Mills' traveling campaign aide
and who succeeded Ward as
campaign manager, declined to
testify about the matter to the
Watergate committee earlier
his year on grounds of possible
self-incrimination.-
Goss said he had testified that
he was unaware of who was
paying salaries for Johnson,
Bullock and Shea.
This contrasts with tes'iimony
given to the Watergate commit-
tee by David Parr, former spec-
ial counsel for the milk produc-

ers. Parr said he believed Goss
was aware of the co-ap's pa}-
ment of salaries. "I am sure
they knew it. We didn'" :ry tol
hide it," Paar testified.
PARR pleaded guilty on Juiy
23 to charges including donationI
of $5,000 in corporate money
to the Mills campaigi, a gift
he said he had sent to Go s s .
Parr is awaiting senten-ing. The
co-op itself also pleaded guilty
to similar charges and was fin-
ed the maximum $35,000.

In recent elections Ann Arbor voters have been able to vote for
the $5 marijuana fine and rent control. In November, in addition
to electing a state representative, member of U.S. Congress, state
senator, and county commissioners from the Ann Arbor area,
voters will be considering another ballot issue, preferential vot-
ing, a method of electing Ann Arbor's mayor that insures that
the election indicates the preference of a majority of the electo-

GOSS said he appeared volun-
tarily, without a subpoena, and
was questioned about lincs be-
tween the Mills campaign and
Associated Milk Producers Inc.,
the big dairy cooperative t h a t
recently pleaded guilty to donat-
ing $5,000 illegally to Mills.
Goss said the questions con-
cerned the $5,000 cash gift,
which allegedly passed through
his hands, and the use of cor-
porate money by the co-gyp to
pay salaries and expenses of
Mills campaign workers. Use of
corporate money in federal elec-
tion campaigns is prohibited by
law.
Mills, reached by telephone at
his suburban Virginia home,
said he has not been :ailed to
testify by prosecutors. Earlier
this year, Mills declined two re-

NO WAITING!

He said he testified

that if

he had received such a gift, he
might well have failed to ask
whether it came from corpor-
ate funds, because he knew that
the milk producers had a legal
political trust for making dona-
tions to candidates.
Goss said he was questioned
about Bullock and two other
campaign workers, Joe John-
son and Terry Shea, who alleg-
edly were paid corporate salar-
ies by the dairymen while work-
ing on the Mills campaign.
