"FACING MAN'S DILEMMA"
From UPI and AP
WASHINGTON - The Justice Depar-
tment expects criminal indictments in
90 days in the corruption scandal that
implicates at least eight members of
Congress and reportedly has spread to
high levels of the New Jersey state
Meanwhile, the House ethics commit-
tee decided yesterday to launch its own
investigation of the "AI ab Scam"
scandal, despite warnings from the
Justice Department such a move could
jeopardize the government's criminal
THE SENATE Ethics Committee
was to meet later yesterday on whether
to take a similar course.
Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti
asked the House panel in a letter -to
delay any "official misconduct" probes
until the Justice Department completes
its criminal case against members of
Congress suspected of taking bribes
and promising favors to undercover
FBI agents in return.,
"If this committee were to begin a
full investigation before we have had a
fair opportunity even to complete our
criminal investigations, a number of
guilty individuals may go unprosecuted
or unpunished, and innocent ones may
be more severely prejudiced," Civiletti
"WE EXPECT that indictments can
be returned in a number of cases within
the next 90 days," he said, adding that
giving information to Congress would
mean that "evidence which would
otherwise be received in the grand jury
process will be adduced in public, per-
mitting others to alter or tailor the
testimony they might otherwise have
But Rep. Charles Bennett (D-Fla.),
the House ethics committee chairman,
said the panel would move ahead with
its own probe "without jeopardizing the
criminal investigation" and would seek
all the information it could get from the
Justice Department without resorting
"The attorney general. told me.
Tuesday there is information that can
be made available currently," Bennett
said. "I think the conflict is artificial."
REP. RICHARD KELLY, one of
eight members of Congress implicated
in the FBI's bribery investigation, con-
firmed yesterday that he took $25,000 in
cash, but asserted he did so to pursue
his own investigation of "shady charac-
Kelly told NBC News that he took the
$25,000 from what turned out to be FBI
agents because he thought they were
"shady characters" and he felt he "had
a unique opportunity" to investigate
"When they blew the cover on their,
case they blew the cover on mine,"
Kelly said of the FBI.
The Florida Republican said he was
given money by one of the shady
characters, a man who turned out to be
an FBI agent. .
Snow buries South. Plains
At least 12 deaths have been blamed on a three-day snowstorm that
pushed its way from the Plains to the East yesterday, Southern Wisconsin and
parts of Illinois got their heaviest snows of the season.
Schools shut down in parts of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina,
Virginia and Tennessee. Snow in Atlanta forced postponement of the federal
bank fraud trial of former U.S. Budget Director Burt Lance.
Student charged with arson
waives preliminary exam
GRAND HAVEN-David Lanham, a former Grand Valley State College
student charged with arson in a dorm fire last fall waived preliminary
examination during an Ottawa County court hearing yesterday.
Lanham, 18, pleaded guilty at his arraignment last 'week after being
charged with arson of an occupied building in the Nov. 17 dorm fire at Grand
Valley State. There were no injuries in the fire.
Lanham's alleged crime is a felony which carries a maximum prison
sentence of 20 years. No trial date has been set.
Cronkite to weigh anchor
NEW YORK-Walter Cronkite wants out as "CBS Evening News"
anchorman, a post he has held since 1962; CBS said* yesterday. Cronkite
wants to deyote more time to specials and other journalistic work, the
Cronkite confirmed that he would like to leave the post no later than
November, 1981, when his current contract expires.
A network spokesperson called the news "not anything really new,"
though the development fanned rumors that Dan Rather, CBS "60 Minutes"
correspondent is in the middle of a bidding war between the three major
networks. Rather, however, declined to discuss money.
Inmates rekindle violence
SANTA FE-Inmates set fires and flooded cells in 'a new round of
violence at the riot-torn New Mexico State Penitentiary Tuesday night, and
officials said they are trying to expedite the transfer of hardcore criminals
out of the state. No injuries were reported in the outburst.
Gov. Bruce King's secretary said the group involved in the flareup
included men believed to be ringleaders in the 36-hour weekend uprising
which killed at least 36 men at the state's only maximum-security prison. As
of yesterday, officials said 100 bodies are "unaccounted for."
Prosecutor calls Gacy
CHICAGO-Assistant State's Attorney Robert Egan, in his opening
statement before a jury yesterday, said John Gacy, Jr. premeditated the 33
strangulation murders of which he stands accused. Egan said Gacy used a
"rope trick" to take the lives of all 33 young men and boys "because they
were inconvenient to him."I
Defense attorney Robert Motta said the crimes were "acts of an insane
mind...acts which Gacy couldn't control." Motta said "The bottom line is
he (Gacy) is dangerously and incomprehensibly ill."
Pitt students protest new
overnight visitors policy
PITTSBURGH-Students at the University of Pittsburgh are complain-
ing that a proposed ban of overnight visitors in dormitories will turn the
residence halls into "monasteries." Campus officials say they hope the
policy, which will begin in May, will reduce crime.
The university plans to stop male and female students from sharing
rooms between 2 a.m. and 10 a.m. Under the new plan, members of the same
sex may stay overnight, but must register at the control desk and cannot
stay longer than three days every two weeks.
