out of public life by making
their lives miserable."
Lance also was defended by
Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) and
James Sasser (-Tenn.). Sasser
said the committee should not
delay a decisioa on .ance's or-
iginal request to give him more
time to sell his bank slgck. le
said the cnimittee might never
be able to m:ke the decision if
it stopped tO investigate every
allegation Ihatmight be made.
But Ribicoff, Jackson, Percy
and Sen. William Roth (R-Del.)
said the committee has no
choice and would face severe
criticism if it simply granted
Lance's reqtest and asked no
further questions,
"I think we have no choice but
to attempt to get the facts,"
Roth said.
Robert Dietch, lance's press
spokesman, said the National
Bank of Georgia began negotiat-

ing with the First National Bank
of Chicago last spring, well be-
fore Carter received the Demo-
cratic presidential . nomination
and before Lance knew he would
be coming to Washington as di-
rector of the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget (OMB).
Be said it is true that the de-
tails were not worked out until
Dec. 8, 1976, five days after
Carter named Lance as OMB
director.
Dietch said the Georgia bank's
account in the Chicago bank
opened with a $50,000 deposit
and that the account, now $200,-
000, has been as high as $225,000.
He said it fluctuated as the
Georgia bank took part in vari-
ous business deals.
He said the First National
Bank of Chicago was only one
of several banks which com-
peted for the Lance loan.

communique, w h i c h indicated
the attack was in retaliation for
three air raids it said the Lib-
yans made on the Egyptian vil-
lage of Salum. Three Egyptian
soldiers were reported wounded
in those raids.
Mediators f r o m the A r a b
League and Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) sought to
cool the friction between the two
countries, which has planned to
merge their nations during a
period of friendship in the early
1970s. The union never occurred
and tension increased after the
1973 war against Israel, with
Libya and Egypt criticizing each
other over war policy.
THERE WAS a further deter-
ioration of relations in 1975
when Egypt agreed to an in-
terim settlement under which
Israel returned part of the oc-
cupied Sinai Desert to Egypt.
Khadafy accused Sadat of being
a traitor to the Arab cause by
signing a pact with the Israelis.
Egypt has said a Libyan force

attacked Egyptian troops Thurs-
day near Salum on the Mediter-
ranean coast and was driven
back after losing 40 tanks, two
planes and 30 trucks. Egypt said
it lost one truck and several
soldiers were wounded.
Libya claimed Egypt killed
women and children in a Lib-
yan village and scores of Egyp-
tians defected in Thursday's
fighting.
EGYPT SAID that on Tuesday

there was a four-hour battle
along the border that cost Libya
20 military vehicles and their
crews while Egypt suffered nine
dead.
Cairo said there were two
other b o r d e r incidents this
month.
The communique said the
Egyptian troops pulled back
across the border Thursday
night after accomplishing their
mission.
