IRS: Lance requested
special treatment in '76
THE FOLKS EXPECT YOU TO
WRITE HOME ONCE IN A WHILE .
WASHINGTON (AP)-Bert Lance;
allegedly told a federal banking:
regulator last year he "just wondered if'
you could see your way clear" to lift
restrictions on a Georgia bank that
Lance headed, according to an IRS
memorandum disclosed yesterday.
The conversation was reported
secondhand in the memo released by
the Senate Governmental Affairs
Committee. The committee said it
received the summary yesterday from
the Internal Revenue Service of an in-
terview conducted by IRS investigators
with Michael Patriarca, an attorney in
the Office. of the Comptroller -of the
THE INVESTIGATORS said
Patriarca told them Donald Tarleton,
regional administrator for the com-
ptroller's office in Atlanta, Ga.,
described to Patriarca on Feb. 23 in
Miami, Fla., a conversation with Lance
- that took place shortly before Lance's
appointment was announced by
According to Patriasrca's account, as
reported by the IRS,. Tarleton said
Lance told him:
"Jimmy wants me to be the head of
the OMB (Office of Management and
Budget), and I want to go into it with a
clear record so, I just wondered if you
could see your way clear to lift the
agreement on Calhoun."
BOTH LANCE AND Tarleton have
denied in testimony before the commit-
tee that Lance asked the banking
regulator to remove the agreement,
which imposed restrictions on the First
National Bank of Calhoun, Ga. Lance
was at the time chairman of the board
of the Calhoun bank.
Lance said in his testimony that he
and Tarleton did discuss the agreement
at a Nov. 22 meeting in Tarleton's of-
fice, but only in a general way.
Lance told the committee last Thur-
"During the course of that meeting
we briefly mentioned the greatly im-
proved condition of the Calhoun First
National Bank and in that context made
passing reference to the agreement
which had been entered into between
the comptroller's office and the
Calhoun First National Bank. Mention
of the agreement was made simply as a
reference in discussing in a general
way the improvements that had taken
place at the bank."
LANCE ALSO HAS said that at no
time did he ask Tarleton to lift the
Tarleton testified previously that he
did not recall discussing it at all during
the conversation. Carter, then the
President-elect, announced on Dec. 3
that he intended to nominate the
Georgia banker as budget director.
Tarleton; in an affidavit for IRS in-
vestigators, said he "did not recall Mr.
Lance ever discussing anything"
regarding the Calhoun bank after the
agreement was entered into in Decem-
Tarleton lifted the agreement a few
hours after Lance's visit.
Tasrleton could not be reached for
CONGRESSIONAL leaders held a
breakfast meeting with Carter yester-
day and said they did not discuss Lance
and his problems.
The President scheduled a news con-
ference today at which the Lance mat-
ter was expected to be the main topic. It
will be Carter's first news conference
since Aug. 23.
Meanwhile, a nationwide public
opinion poll conducted by telephone for
The Associated Press on Monday
evening showed that 38 per cent of the
1,548 persons questioned thought Lance
should resign, 35 per cent thought he
should remain on the job and 27 per cent
White House spokesman Jody Powell
said, as had in the past, that Carter's
decision on Lance's career would not be
swayed by public opinion surveys.
POWELL SAID he did not know when
Carter would make a decision on
whether Lance should remain as
