Join the Daily
You've made the party scene, the bar scene, the movie scene, the
pinball scene, the library scene, the sleep scene, and finally the
boredom scene. Admit it, it's high time for a little change of pace. So
why not check out one of the nifty informational meetings we'll be
holding this week for all those interested in working for our news,
sports, arts and business staffs. Tonight at 8:00 p.m., we'll be in South
Quad's West Lounge and the Angela Davis Lounge in Markley. And if
you can't make it tonight, you can still cach our Thursday night
meeting, also at 8:00 pm., here at The Daily, upstairs at 420 Maynard
St. You've got nothing to lose but your yawns.
Can it
One morning next week, Jimmy Carter may open his mailbox to be
greeted by an avalanche of beef and pop cans. No, the presidential
mail room hasn't been mistaken for the Department of Sanitation. It's
an effort by the National Clearinghouse on Deposit Legislation, which
has decided that the clatter of thousands of cans is a lot more effective
than a deluge of letters to support mandatory returnable beverage
containers. Yesterday, Ann Arbor'S U.S. Rep. Carl Pursell, (R-2nd
District), helped launch his own can on its way to the White House
from the Stadium Blvd. post office. Better save those cans, Jimmy.
We hear you can make a little money recycling aluminum.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP)-Acting
U.S. Attorney General Benjamin
Civiletti suggested yesterday that the
questioning of Tongsun Park in the in-
fluence-peddling scandal may not
result in any indictments of present U.S.
officials or members of Congress.
Civiletti; chief U.S. interrogator of
Park for four days, told reporters, "In-t
all likelihood, there will be very few
possible criminal cases." The few cases t
that do result, he added, would apply
"primarily if not exclusively" to for-t
mer officials and private individuals.
THE JUSTICE Department official
said, however, that the testimony has
been "extremely useful."
Civiletti told a news conference prior
to his departure for Washington that
news reports about Park's testimony in
Seoul were "grossly exaggerated or
widely speculative" and that there was
no evidence of "certainly criminal con-
duct on the part of any vast number of
people, either former officials or
present."
He added, "I shuddered from time to
time when such exaggerations were
made."
ASKED IF he meant he expected no
indictments against current'
congressmen, Civiletti replied, "I
didn't say that, but that would be a
reasonable inference from what I did
say."
N.Last week Rep. Bruce Caputo (R-
N.Y.), a member of the House Ethics
Committee who attended the first two
sessions of interrogation, told reporters
Park admitted handing out "hundreds
of thousands of dollars" to "an awful lot
of people," including members, of both
houses of Congress.
The New York Times further repor-
ted that Park told his questioners that

he gave $750,000 in coert gifts and cash
payments to U.S. officials and political
campaigns from 1970 to 1975.
THE TIMES said $200,000 in cash was
given to former Rep. Otto Passman (D-

La.), $20,000 to President Nixon's 1972
re-election campaign, and $100,000 each
to former Reps. Richard Hanna of
California, and Cornelius Gallagher of
New Jersey, both Democrats.
Civiletti headed the interrogation of
Park for four days. Five associates,
under the leadership of prosecutor Paul
Michel, were to continue the
questioning for another seven days or
so.
In describing Park's testimony as
useful, Civiletti said he obtained direct
evidnce and testimony from Park
"which will be helpful for evaluation
and Justice Department in-
vestigation."
CIVILETTI said the fourth day of in-
terrogation mainly concerned Park's
rice dealings in America, whether he
had acted as a commission agent han-
dling Korean purchases of American
rice.
Park left Washington in the fall of 1976;
amid reports that he was suspected of
being the key figure in the Korean
payodd scandal. He was indicted sub-
sequently by a federal grand jury on 36
counts of bribery and other charges.
