ate subcommittee where the
Lockheed payment were re-
ported, told seven viiiting mem-
bers of the Japanesei parliament
Tuesday in Washington that he
did not know the n, Imes of the
Japanese governmeit officials}
involved.
In another d evelopment,
Church said yesterday that de-
spite the impressian given in
a part of a teleigram read
into testimony before his com-
mittee last week, there was
"nothing improper" In the re-
lationship between Lockheed
and a Swedish airle.

Some senators had interpreted
the portion of the telegram, be-

as the commissions are not too
much or too little, he should be
satisfied."

spokesmen for the Ford Admin-

stop the practice.
