Exiled resisters, deserters
call Carter pardon 'farce'

(Continued from Page 1)
HOWEVER, Jody Powell, the
White House press secretary
said Carter would soon start a
study "involving the miiltary
looking toward the possible up-
grading of the category of the
discharges on an expanded and
accelerated review process."
Some draft resisters were
pleased with the Carter move.
A spokesman for a group of
Americans who fled to France
rather than fight in Vietnam
said the pardon was limited but
still reoresented "a positive step
forward."
"WELL, it's like he promised.

said. "He does not expect that I this

everyone in the country will

stressing the fact that Carter
had often stated his pro-pardon
position throughout the cam-
paign.
CARTER'S PARDON included
an order that the government
"forever give up -its right to
prosecute" any of the draft eva-
ders covered, Powell said. He
explained that the Carter ad-
ministration was taking "an
abundance of caution" in doing
this, so that no future admin-
istration or any future attorney
general could reinstate prosecu-
tion and so that the draft eva-
ders need have no fear of fu-
ture jeopardy.

istration are automatically par-

said.
Ford, on a golfing vacation in
Pebble Beach, Calif., exercised
a private citizen's prerogative
not to talk with reporters abort
the pardon he had rejected as
president.
Carter made his pledge to
pardon the draft evaders in
1975 while campaigning to win
the Democratic presidential
nomination. He said that in his
first week in office he would
issue a full pardon) for those
who evaded the draft in the
Vietnam war. He did it on his
first full day there.
According to the executive or-
der, the pardons covered the
period between Aug. 4, 1964,
and March 28, 1973, whidh has
been accepted as the Vietnam
era.

versity relations and develop-
ment, and others. They dis-
cussed plans to raise money for
construction of the library.
THE MANUSCRIPTS and
documents may remain in
temporary storage for as long
as three years until the library
is built. The materials present-
ly occupy 8,500 cubic feet of
space leased from the Univer-
sity by the General Service Ad-
ministration (GSA) in Washing-
ton.
Berger said a nationwide, pro-
fessional fund-raising campaign
is planned. He did not know if
University funds would be used
for the project. Once built, the
library will be maintained by
the National Archives.
Papers and documents will
not be available for research
until the Library is built, said
GSA officials. A museum will

be constructed in Grand Rap-
ids, Ford's hometown, to house
presidential artifacts and mem-
orabilia.
UNLIKE OTHER presidential
libraries, Ford's manuscripts
and artifacts will be displayed
in two separate buildings. This
is the first time two locations
have been planned to house
presidential material, said
Thomas Powers, an associate
archivist for the Michigan His-
torical Collection.
Ford's Congressional papers
have been deposited at the
Michigan Historical Collection
in the Bentley Historical Libra-
ry here since 1964. Over 800
boxes of his papers arrived be-
fore today's large shipment.
Powers said representatives
of the Michigan Historical Col-
lection and Fleming worked with
the National Archives to acquire
the papers.

WASHINGTON (R) - The In-
ternal Revenue Service has
filed liens against South Korean
businessman Tongsun Park, fo-
cus of an influence-buying in-
vestigation, charging he owes
the U.S. government $4.5 mil-
lion.
The liens were for income tax
for the years 1972 through 1975,
a spokesperson for -the IRS
Baltimore district said last
night.
THEY WERE filed with the
recorder's offices in Los An-
geles and Washington, D.C., and
circuit courts in Arlington and
Fairfax counties, Va., Alexan-
dria, Va.; and Montgomery,
Prince George's and Worcester
counties, Md.
The liens total $4,500,619.20,
the spokesperson said. He said
this amount could include taxes,

penalties and interest but add-'
ed that he could not give spe-
cific details on the liens.
A -lien is a notice served by
the government that it is claim-
ing an interest in any property
the subject of the lien may own.
"ALL YOU can assume is that
the IRS claims he owes. this
amount in money to the govern-
ment ... It is filing the liens to
protect the government's inter-
est in any property he may have
in these areas," the spokesman
said.
He said two liens were filed in
each location, one in the name
of Park and one in the name of
his firm, Pacific Development,
Inc.
The Justice Department has
been condudting an investigation
of alleged Korean influence-buy-1
ing among members c-f Con-

gress. Several congressmen
have acknowledged receiving
gifts .and contributions from
Park.
PARK IS A wealthy rice brok-
er known for his lavish party-
giving, full social life and ! x-
urious homes during his years
in Washington following his
graduation from Georgetowa
University.
He has denied he was involved
in a covert South Korean gov-
ernment scheme to buy influ-
ence in Congress.
Park, who left the United
States about the time the alle-
gations about him surfaced last
October, was last--reported in
the Caribbean.
While visiting London last No-
vember, he said he planned to
coooerate with the federal
probe.

MIAMI - With Florida crop
losses from icy weather already
estimated in the millions, farm-
ers .say the freeze will force
higher prices to consumers
lucky enough to find produce in'
their markets.
Price increases, already have
been listed for citrus products,
and industry officials .predict
even higher prices.
FLORIDA provides most of
the nation's tomatoes and vir-
tually all of its limes. The lime
crop was destroyed, farmers
said, and tomato losses were so
bad that prices for what sur-
vived may nearly triple.
In addition, much of the east-
ern half of the nation's fresh
vegetables come from Florida
during the winter months.
"I just checked the price of
fresh green beans," said a Mi-
ami produce broker. "A few
days ago, they were $8 a bushel,
but today they were $15. The
price began jumping right at
the farm."
Seald-Sweet, a cooperative of
4,500 citrus growers, has raised
its prices in two days by 50
cents a carton.
"IT'S BASICALLY a half-cent
per piece of fruit, or six cents,
a dozen, and citrus recently has
been the cheapest it's been in

five years," said a spokesman.
"Quality of vegetables will be
poor and the- prices will be
high," the broker explained.
"When it' freezes like this, you
don't have quality and you don't
have quantity, and the prices go
up."
Tomato losses in south Florida
alone were estimated as high as
$43 million, with additional dam-
age reported in central and,

southwest Florida fields. The re-
tail price of surviving tomatoes
was expected to increase from
60 cents to $1.70 a pound.
"I guess we're totally wiped
out." said the manager of a
Fort Lauderdale-area farm.
"There's nothing we can -do but
plow everything up and start
over."
