WASHINGTON U1, - Former
special Watergate prosecutor
Leon Jaworski, who obtained
the tape that forced former
President Richard Nixon to re-
sign, agreed yesterday to he-
come chief investigator of the
Honuse probe into alleged Ko-
rean influence-buying in Con-

Jaworskr agreed in a tele-
phone call to Rep. John Flynt
(1) Ga.), chairman of the louse
committee conducting the in-
vestigation. He will replace Phi-
lip lacovara, who quit Friday
m a fight with Flynt.
REPORTERS witnessing the
phone call in Washington could
hear only Flynt's words. At one
point he assured the Houston
attorney, "That's perfectly
agreeable to me. As a matter of
fact, I'm a very easy person to

Jaworski later told reporters
in Houston that- he still had to
work out with the committee a
written agreement giving hin
complete freedom to bring out
the facts in the case.
But he said House Speaker
Thomas O'Neill and Democratic.
Leader Jim Kright of Texas al-
ready have assured him that
he will get that guarantee.
HE SAID THE South Korean
probe "is similar to Watergate
only in the fact that once again
the people should have the
facts. "
If there is the slightest effort
to supress the investigation I
will go to the louse leadership
and then I will go to the public,"

"NATIONWIDE, students are
coming to fewer and fewer
films," Ruhmann complained.
"Let's face it, the major pre-
occupation on this campus is

down."
Ruhmann also cited rising
costs for renting the films them-
selves, in addition to rising
overhead costs, for the co-ops'
deteriorating financial condition.
"There's a lot of expenses that
students don't realize," he said.
HOWEVER, Ruhmann was
optimistic a b o u t his group's
plans for Winter term "We
should be very solid financial-

to start doing the things we like
to do," Ruhmann concluded.
According to Zsuzsa Molnar,
president of the Cinema Guild-
which has consistently offered
unique, often obscure films-the
Guild will not change its type of
programming.
"LAST TERM we had more
financial problems than in the
past, but- we're trying to keep
the same type of schedule we've
always had," she said,
When asked if she feels this
position wilt be profitable for
the Guild, Molnar responded'
"We'll just have to wait and
see." -
Moltiar feels the drop in at-
tendance figures is due, in pacL
to an increasing number of films
being shown on campus.
