Jaworski to probe bril

WASHINGTON tr - Former
Watergate Prosecutor Leon Ja-
worski was urged yesterday by
House Speaker Thomas O'Neill
to take the job as chief investi-
gator of the House's Korean in-
fluence-buying probe. Congres-
sional sources said Jaworski
may make his decision today.
O'Neill told reporters that he
had personally urged an un-
named person "with a national
reputation" to take the job. The
sources said later that he was
referring to Jaworski.
Jaworski, now in private law
practice in Houston, Tex., was
not reached for comment imme-
diately.
O'NEILL SAID five other per-
sons also were contacted and
"we'll get back to them" -today.
The sources said the persons
most frequently mentioned and
therefore probably among the
five are two other former Wat-
ergate prosecutors, Henry Ruth

tising the fair, hoping to lure
the shopper with a wearable
keepsake.
Even legendary Ann Arbor
street figure, Shakey Jake is
readying goods for the fair.
Standing on the corner of State
and William Streets, Jake was
trying to peddle T-shirts im-
printed with his face and fig-
ure. One shopper hurriedly
walked by the guitar - carrying
legend and in true form, Shakey
stuck his tongue out at her.
Though out-of-state art con-
noisseurs, in-state bargain
shoppers and crafts people
from all over have been looking
forward to the fair for months,
not all Ann Arbor inhabitants
have. The mass influx of peo-
ple destroying the peace and
quiet of Ann Arbor's summer
is cited as the main cause.

of messes up my town for the
summer," Cindy Beal said.
"I've never been to one be-
fore I think I've usually left
town before they started.
"Art - it doesn't have to be
a big gala event. The Art Fair
- it's sort of an institution.
Why can't it happen when it
wants to?"
Beal thinks the idea of a
Street Art Guild, similar to
Berkeley, California's, could
be successful on Ann Arbor's
campus.
Two male University stu-
dents are looking forward to
the fair not so much for the
art and crafts but the social
life.
"It's a positive social fair
from what I've heard and read
about it," John Eick said with
a smile. "I've been planning to
go for the past couple of years
but this year I might make it,"
he said..
Shrugging his shoulders,
University student Greg Touma
said "I think it's cool."
Touma doesn't plan on buy-
ing anything but said, "I just
like to wander around."
One craftsman, James Cun-
kle, had nothing but compli-
mentary thngs to say about
Ann Arbor's art fairs. "All of

ate Watergate Committee coun-
sel Sam Dash; and John Doar,
who was staff chief of the House
impeachment inquiry against
former President Richard Nix-
on.
Earlier yesterday, House Re-
publican leaders, rebuffed by
President Carter in their de-
mand for a special prosecutor
to conduct the Korean investi-
gation, said they will try to
force a House vote on the
matter.
At the same time, a group of
junior Republicans called for
creation of a new House panel
to take over the investigation
from Rep. John Flynt's Com-
mittee on Standards of Official
Conduct. They suggested rehir-
ing Philip Lacovara, the chief
investigator who quit last Fri-
day in a dispute with Flynt.
O'Neill, saying he wants to get
the probe "back on track as
quickly as possible," called a
series of meetings with other
key lawmakers yesterday.

O'NEILL SAID he wants quick
action on appointing a new chief
investigator and said the pros-
pects include eight or 10 per-
sons who figured in the Water-
gate investigation.
Lacovara was also an assist-
ant prosecutor in the Watergate
case.
"Whoevur the new counsel is,
he is going to have my backing
to the fullest," O'Neill said..
The speaker said that taking
the investigation a w a y from
Flynt's panel was one proposal
being considered.
HE SAID Monday that Flynt,
a Georgia Democrat, had offer-
ed to turn the investigation over
to some other committee, such
as the new Select Committee on
Ethics.
Carter told GOP leaders in a
letter Monday that appointing a
special prosecutor might impede
the Justice Department's own
investigation, which he said was
making "substantial progress."
Atty. Gen. Griffin Bell said he
expects prosecutions to result

from the probe.
House Republican leader John
Rhodes and Rep. John Anderson,
the GOP conference chairman,
said they and Rep. Bill Cohen
(R-Maine) will try to force out
of a committee and onto the
flouse floor a bill to create the
prosecutor.
"THE TIME IS clearly come
to dispel clouds of suspicion,
doubt and mistrust in the Con-
gress by appointing a special
prosecutor to take over the Jus-
tice Department's investigation
of these matters," they said at
a news conference.
Rep. Robert Walker of Penn-
sylvania, one of the Republicans
calling for a new committee,
said, "We now have a situation
where the credibility of the
ethics committee probe has de-
teriorated to the point that we
need the trust of a new select
committee."
He said that if Lacovara
would agree to be the chief in-
vestigator, the new committee
