Republican Carl Pursell said yesterday his nar-
row lead over Democrat Edward Pierce has con-
vinced him to start planning to take office, al-
though the votes in the skin-tight race still may
not be verified for several weeks. By most counts,
Pierce trails Pursell by 300 votes of about 200,000
cast. Pursell, saying he sees no reason for anyone
to challenge the legitimacy of the voting, believes
he "will be the next congressman from the second
district" and plans to "pursue all appropriate pre-
parations toward assuming-office."

A comic affair
Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoon, Doonesbury is
catching heat again. A number of newspapers
refused to run yesterday's segment showing
Joanie, a principal character, in bed with a news-
man named Rick. The New York Daily News, The
Boston Globe and The Dallas Times Herald were
among those who declined to run the strip because
it was in poor taste. The Tallahassee Democrat
tried to cover all bases. They cut the strip but in-
formed all interested readers that they would mail

Some criminals walk the streets as free men
because they are on bond, on parole, or simply
unapprehended. But in Indianola, Iowa, Sheriff
William Mathews says criminal suspe'cts go free
because his jail is too- full. "You would have
to see for yourself what I'm talking about," he
says in describing the Warren County jail built
to hold 16 prisoners. "When this jail was built
in 1938, it was like having a nice new 1938 auto-
mobile, but you don't see many people driving
1938 automobiles now."

Marshall County Kentucky's "monkey man" has
passed away at 85, but Circuit Judge Michael
Miller must rule if the man's last wish can be
granted - to be buried with his pet monkey. The
Marshall County coroner's office identified the
man, known locally because of the monkey he
kept, as Clifton Wade. Wade and the monkey
shared a shack in Happy Hollow in rural Mar-
shall County. He had asked neighbors to have
the monkey put to sleep and buried with him when
he died, but the decision rests with Miller.

TRANSITION TEAM HELPS OUT:

ATLANTA-Now that Jimmy
Carter has sorted out his per-

is to pick Cabinet officers to

BUT BEFORE HE CAN ap-
pr)ach Congress with any sub-
stantiveprograms, he has to
have his own team in shape
to back him up. And that is
what is foremost on the minds
of the Carter organization.
A first step toward lining
things up was the meeting inl
Plains, Ga., over the weekend
between Carter, transition chief
Jack Watson and campaign
manager Hamilton Jordan. One
of their leading objectives was
to sort out responsibilities.
"There is too much crossoverf
right now," one veteran Carter
staffer said. "The only delinea-
tioa so far is that Hamilton is

House staff and Jack is clearly

some time with a view to selec-

er a series of interviews.
Jordan's assignment to over-
see creation of Carter's per-
sonal White House staff is new
and reaffirms his standing in
light of reports of a mild rival-
ry between him and Watson for
influence in the administration.
It also became clear Jordan
was reasserting his influence
when it was announced over the
weekend he will shift his base
from Atlanta to Washington to

PLAINS, Ga. - The white clapboard Plains Baptist Church
has shaped life in this small Southern town for 128 years.
Now it is the scene of a confrontation involving deep-seated
racial attitudes and the pressures placed on a community when
one of its own becomes President.
THE CONGREGATION of the little church takes up a segre-
gation question today that is reminiscent of the 1960s. In the pro-
cess it "either will be torn apart or come out stronger." The
end result could affect Jimmy Carter's presidency.
Members will meet behind closed, doors instead of holding the
regular worship service and may vote on whether to accept their
deacons' unanimous decision to dismiss the Rev. Bruce Edwards,

WASHINGTON (AP)-A 1964 memo by the
late FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover quoted a
bureau informant as saying Lee Harvey Os-
wald told Cuban officials he planned to kill
President Kennedy,- an informed source said
The informant said his information came di-
rectly from Fidel Castro and was based on a
report Castroshad received from officials of the
Cuban embassy in Mexico City, which Oswald
visited on Sept. 27, 1963, according to this source's
account of the memo. '
THE SOURCE SAID he had personally read
the memo, but discounted its significance since

HOWEVER, DAVID SISSION, a staff mem-
ber who investigated the possibility of Oswald's
involvement in a foreign conspiracy, said he
had no recollection of the memo.
Justice Department and FBI officials declined
all comment on the matter. Richard Sprague,
chief counsel of a House committee investigating
the Kennedy assassination, also refused to com-
