MIDNIGHT COWBOY
Director-JOHN SCHLESINGER (1969)
Ratso Rizzo, a small-time pimp and con artist meets Joe Buck, a
naive, aspiring gigolo, in this depiction of the squalor and degradation
at the heart of New York City. Winner of Academy Awards for Best
Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. JON VOIGHT is superb
ig as a replica of all the 42nd Street cowboys and DUSTIN HOFFMAN

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Korean
lobbyist Tongsun Park told investiga-
tors yesterday he distributed "hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars" among
U.S. congressmen and other Washing-
ton officials, an observer at Park's in-
terrogation reported.
The observer, Rep. Bruce Caputo (R-
N.Y.), a member of the House Ethics
Committee, said the American investi-

committee investigators conductin
their own probe of the payoff scandal.
He said Justice Department officia
are primarily interested in crimes i
volved in the alleged influence buyin
but that the ethics committee is also i
terested in other acts that may not co
stitute crimes but violate congression
rules.
He planned to meet with U.S. Arr

Hot walks
It's enough to warm the cockles of your heart, if not your tootsies, too.
Ever noticed how a raging blizzard can whitewash the campus, but cer-
tain stomping grounds remain clear of snow. Trudging through inches of
snow and sludge, you suddenly happen upon a slab of concrete where the
white stuff just doesn't stick. Well the same series of steam tunnels un-
derneath the University that bring warm air and memories of a more
temperate climate to your dorm room, says Physical Properties Director
J.P. Weidenbach, also heat patches of campus walkways. If University
planners had foreseen such side effects, the tunnels could have been built
under sidewalks and the University's snow removal worries would have
just melted away. Now, where steam tunnel and sidewalk intersect, a
snowflake has as much chance for survival as a congregation of cumulus
crystals in Hell.

Quacked lifestyle
According to some huffy authorities in Helsinki, Finland, his racy
life-style was clearly setting a bad example for tots. For example, snor-
ted the indignant chairman of Helsinki's youth committee, he has been
"going with the same woman for 50 years without result." And who, you
might ask, was this flaming playboy? Why, none other than that old
swinger, Donald Duck. Apparpntly, some proper Finnish folks felt that
Helsinki libraries should stop subscribing to the Walt Disney comics
because they're "not informative" and, Well, a little unsavory. After all,
would you want your kids perusing a magazine in which "not a single
normal family" was featured, but instead a screwball collection of
relatives like Uncle Scrooge and nephews Huey, Dewey and Looey?
"
On the outside.. .
Take your typical dreary wintry day - snow flurries, gray skies, oc-
casional gusts of wind. Give it a high of 18* and you have today's weather.
Do the same thing again, except add four to the high (yes, you mathe-
maticians, that makes 220) and you have tomorrow's weather. What a
bore.

'It was just very embarrassing, here 10,000 miles
away from home, to have a foreign government
prosecutor ask a man, "How many congressmen did
you give money to?" In essence, how corrupt our
government was.'
- Rep. Bruce Caputo (R-N. Y.)

gators covered "dozens and dozens" of
people in the Congress and executive
branch in their second day of ques-
tioning Park about allegations he tried
to buy favors for South Korea on Capitol
Hill. Caputo did not name the people
discussed.
"IT WAS JUST very embarrassing,
here 10,000 miles away from home, to
have a foreign government prosecutor
ask a man, 'How many congressmen
did you give money to?' In essence how
corrupt our government was," Caputo
told reporters. "It discredits Congress.
It's very saddening."
Park was questioned both by U.S.
Justice Department officials and by
Korean investigators.
Caputo, attending the sessions as an
observer for the ethics committee, told
reporters Park's testimony yesterday
contained only "one or two surprises."
FRIDAY WAS MUCH more eventful
in the respect," he added. More than 20
former and present congressmen have
acknowledged receiving money or
other gifts from Park but denied any
wrongdoing.
The South Korean has been indicted
by a Washington federal grand jury on
36 counts of bribery, mail fraud and
other charges for alleged influence
buying for the Seoul government of
President Park Chung-hee. Under a
U.S.-Korean accord, he is granted im-
munity from these criminal charges in
return for truthful testimony at Justice
Department proceedings. D.G.
The ethics committee has demanded
that Park also testify before it, but tes-
timony before Congress is not'covered
in the agreement.
ACTING DEPUT~Y U.S. Attorney
General Benjamin Civiletti is leading
the group of six American investigators
in the questioning, which they said
would last about 10 days. Park was
questioned for five hours Friday and
three hours yesterday, and a lie detec-
tor was reported used both days.
Caputo, the only person among these
present to comment immediately after
the hearing, said a wide range of
people, including Koreans, was covered
in connection with cash transfers,
check transfers and gifts, such as
jewels, given by Park.
The congressman declined to give de-
tails of the testimony, but he said the
session yesterday was "very thorough
and very complete" and Park an-
swered most of the questions with a
simple "yes" or "no."
CAPUTO SAID Park's testimony in
Seoul would be insufficient for ethics

bassador Richard Snider to discuss how
to work out an arrangement acceptable
to all parties for Tongsun Park to
testify before congressional commit-
tees.
Caputo said the ethics committee also
is seeking voluntary testimony from
two other South Korean ambassadors to
Washington, Kim Dong-jo and Hahm
Pyong-choon, and from Lee Hu-rak,
former director of the Korean Central
Intelligence Agency in connection with
the scandal.
