Election commission

asks Carte
taxpayers
WASHINGTON (AP)-The Federal
Election Commission, after a two-and-
one-half-year audit, is asking President
Carter to reimburse taxpayers for
$50,202.94 spent during his 1976 general
election campaign.
The commission determined yester-
day that Carter's campaign committee
owes:
* $27,080.69 in interest it earned on
taxpayers' money deposited with
various telephone companies.
* $16,207 in cash "get-out-the-vote"
payments made by individual Carter
campaign workers around election day
in Michigan, California, Pennsylvania,
Illinois, Tennessee, and Georgia.
* $7,915.25 in miscellaneous travel,
entertainment, lodging, and office ex-
penses for which the FEC found insuf-
ficient documentation.
DURING THE general election, Car-
ter's campaign received nearly $26
million from the Treasury under a law
providing for public financing of
presidential elections.
Yesterday's FEC decision gives Car-
ter 30 days to supply additional
documentation to support the contested
items, but White House spokesman Rex
Granum said the full amount probably
will be paid. Granum said it is often
more expensive to supply the documen-
tation than to pay the questioned ex-
pense.
Granum said the money in question
amounts to one-tenth of 1 per cent of
total expenditures in the 1976 general
election campaign. He said he under-
stood this is about the same percentage
that has been questioned in other cam-
paigns.
GRANUM SAID the Carter campaign
had been entitled to an additional
$250,000 in matching funds, but did not
apply for the money because it was not
needed. He said Carter would ask the
FEC to let him use that money now to
pay off the debt.
The FEC completed an audit of for-.
mer President Gerald Ford's general
election campaign more than a year
ago and billed Carter's 1976 Republican
opponent for $33,359.42.

r to pay
$50,000
The sum included $700 in parking
tickets which the FEC said should not
have been paid with taxpayers' money.
$30,472 in interest earned on deposits
similar to the Carter phone deposits,
and $2,187 in unused funds.
The commission auditors originally
wanted to bill the Carter campaign for
$82,070.72, but the six election com-

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -
President John Vorster, a dominant
figure in South African politics for
decades, resigned in disgrace yester-
day as an investigatory commission
accused him of trying to cover up a
multimillion-dollar government scan-
dal.
Prime Minister Pieter Botha, who
succeeded Vorster 10 months ago, an-
nounced the resignation in Parliament
at the same time the devastating report
of the Erasmus Commission was
released, destroying Vorster's image of
honesty and integrity.
The allegations relate to Vorster's 12
years as prime minister, an office he
resigned last October, purportedly
because of ill health.
VORSTER WAS believed to be in
Cape Town, and his office would only
say all his appearances were canceled.
He was replaced by Marais Viljeen,
president of the Senate, in the largely
ceremonial post of state president.

presented yesterday to Parliament,
