ATLANTA (AP)- State Rep. Sidney
Marcus surged ahead of former U.N.
Ambassador Andrew Young in early
returns yesterday as a surprisingly
large number of voters turned out to
pick a successor to Mayor Maynard
With nearly 20 percent of the vote
counted, Marcus had established a
1,300-vote margin over Young.
With 36 precincts out of 188 in the city
reporting, Marcus had 5,315 votes, or
45.5 percent of the total, while Young
had 4,008 votes, or 34.3 percent.
FULTON COUNTY Commissioner
Reginald .Eaves, a former Atlanta
public safety commissioner, was a
distant third with 1,570 votes, or 13.4
Young and Eaves, both black, were
expected to divide most of the votes in
predominantly black precincts, while
Marcus, a white, liberal businessman,
was expected to score heavily in'white
precincts on the city's northside.
The other four candidatesin the race
divided fewer than 800 votes.

visor Tom Malone reported earlier that
the turnout was "heavy throughout the
Taiwanese authorities do not deny
that such files exist, Leach testified. He
claimed that they open private
correspondence and record and tran-
scribe telephone calls. In the case of
Chen Wen-Chen, Leach contends, he
was confronted with tape recordings of
statements he had made while an
assistant professor in Pittsburgh.
Taiwan, however, is 'not the only
country alledged to have government
agents surveying and intimidating its
own nationals in the United States.
Both Leach and the University's Inter-
national Center Director Jon, Heise
have named the same four countries--
Taiwan, South Korea, Libya, and
Iran-as having spies on U. S. cam-

congressional hearings will investigate

city," and he estimated that more than
60' percent of the city's 191,000
registered voters went to the polls un-
der fair skies.
The ballot also featured city council
and school board races, but the atten-
tion went to the non-partisan mayor's
race, which pitted Young against two
other black'candidates and four whites.
Most pre-election observers expected
that no candidate would get a majority
of the vote, and many predicted a
runoff along racial lines between Young
and Marcus. If necessary, a runoff will
be held Oct. 27.
Jackson, Atlanta's first black mayor,
has served two four-year terms and is
prohibited from running again. He sup-
ported Young in the race. The other
black candidate on the ballot was state
Rep. Mildred Clover.

The director of Taiwan's unofficial
embassy in Chicago, Stephen Chen,
refuted Leach's, statements that
Taiwan's KMT government has an in-
telligence network set up in pro-KMT
campus organizations like the Chinese
Student Association or the Creative
SMind Society.
CHEN DEFINED a spy as a person
sent by a country to carry on illegal ac-
tivities td obtain information not made,
public. "After this definition I can
claim there is no spying," Chen said.
He did say his office receives
newspaper articles and transcripts of
releyant public discussions from sup-
portive students on U.S. campuses, but
Chen added, because this information is
already public it does not constitute
"We receive information from
students but most don't have time. We
don't encourage it. Out of patriotism
they do that,' Chen said.
The director of the Taiwanese con-
sulate said that because students are
too busy with classwork, he cannot rely
pon them for information.
ABOUT .THE current speculation
that there are, in fact, spies from
Taiwan operating on U.S. campuses,
Chen emphasized: "We don't want in-
nuendo to be interpreted as truth or
fact." He said he would like Leach to
cite just one piece of concrete evidence
about a person engaged in spying and
"we will send him (the student) back"
to Taiwan.
Congressman Leach testified before
a House subcommittee in July that
spying at the Carnegie-Mellon Univer-
sity campus was directly related to
former University Ph.D. student Chen
Wen-Chen's death.
"It would also appear that infor-
mation gathered in Pittsburgh (where
Chen lived before his death) is directly
responsible for a death in Taiwan,"
Leach said, but he did not elaborate.
THE PUBLIC got glimpses of some of
the classified information regarding
spying from the state department, the
FBI, and the CIA, when a secret report
to the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee was leaked to The Washington
Post in August 1979.
The report, which was never-for un-
disclosed reasons-accepted by the
committee, said "at least 45 Taiwanese
intelligence officers were present in the
United States at the beginning of this
year (1978). Ten to 25 of them are
believed to be on U.S. college cam-
The primary author of the report,
Michael Glennon, who is now a law

professor at the University of Cincin-
nati, said in a telephone interview in
July that he believes foreign intelligen-
ce operations in this country have not
abated since his report.
"THE ACTIVITIES of Taiwan in-
telligence officers are extensive on
campuses in the United States," said
Glennon. He added that this conclusion
was never challenged by the intelligen-
ce or law enforcement agencies.
University political science ;Prof.'
Michael Oksenburg, an expert on
Chinese affairs and a former member
of the National-Security Council,
agreed with Glennon.
"It is fair to assume, that the
authorities of Taiwan have maintained
informants on U.S. campuses who
receive remunerations for their ac-
tivities," he said.
The alleged procedure and activities
of the KMT secret agents was drawn
upon at length by Leach in his'
testimony in an earlier hearing on the
issue last July.
ACCORDING TO Leach, Taiwanese
students who are leaving to study in the
United States and who have been par-
ticularly supportive of the Chinese
Nationalist Party in Taiwan are told to
contact Taiwanese officials in the
United.States. These officials, in turn,
will arrange a meeting for the student
with the government's "squad com-
mander" at the student's university.
"Arrangements are made for him to
receive the party newspaper, the Cen-
tral Daily News, free of charge, and he

nes spy
is expected to join one of the pro-KMT
groups on campus, such as the Chinese
Student Association, the Creative Mind
Society, or similar organization,"
Leach said at the first hearing.
The newly arrived student from
Taiwan then becomes part of the squad
leader's spy network intent on
gathering information on any
Taiwanese dissidentsdor Communist
Chinese, Leach claimed.
"SOME SQUAD leaders particularly
in years past, have provided with
copies of 'Rules and Regulations of
KMT Overseas Work,' which instructs
them to 'act in coordination to establish
a broad and fine intelligence network to
carry out investigation and intelligence
gathering,"'Leach said.
Leach contends the students are paid
in various ways, including scholarships
and airplane tickets. He said squad
commanders at universities are paid
cash payments ranging from $50 to $400
on a regular basis in addition to the
frequent provision of a car.
The "squad commander" allegedly
reports back to a party officer from
Coordination Council for North
American Affairs, Taiwan's unof-
ficial embassy in the United. States.
"ONCE THE PARTY officer has the
written reports and/or evidence
(photos, tapes, publications, etc.) he
uses the Taiwan Government offices to
send it back to Taipei, where the TGC
(Tawian Garrison- Command, the
national security police) puts it inte
files," Leach continued.
