The $635.3 million higher education ap-

FBI to probe racial attacks
PINOLE, Calif.-The FBI has been ordered to investigate attacks against
black families living in a predominantly white blue-collar neighborhood
near San Francisco, authorities said yesterday.
The incidents in Contra Costa County about 15 miles northeast of San
Francisco have most recently been targeted at three black families. Early
Tuesday, vandals poured gasoline on the lawn of a Tara Hills resident and
set it afire. Prior to that, residents had been threatened with letters, a
shotgun firing, and property damage.
White House aid denies
'alleged bribery takes
WASHINGTON-Presidential assistant Richard Harden, rejecting
suggestions he may have lied to a grand jury, said yesterday he discouraged
a 1977 effort to set up a meeting between Hamilton Jordan and represen-
tatives of fugitive financier Robert Vesco.
Harden told a Senate judiciary subcommittee that Georgia attorney Spen-
cer Lee-a long-time friend-said he had been offered $1 million to arrange
the meeting with Jordan, a top aide to President Carter.
The subcommittee, chaired by Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.), and Orrin
Hatch (R-Utah), has been investigating several allegations that Vesco tried
to buy influence with the administration.
Gary's suicide note released
PARIS-French novelist Romain Gary, found dead in his Paris apartment
Tuesday night with a bullet wound in the head, sent a suicide note to his
publisher saying his act was not connected with the death of his former wife,
actress Jean Seberg, 18 months ago, the publisher said.
But close friends said the French writer, film director, diplomat and war
hero had continually expressed grief since Seberg's body was found in his
car 15 months ago.
In a note addressed to his publisher, Editions Gallimard, and found near
his body, Gary implied that at 66, he felt his literary work was complete and
that he had nothing more to say.
Panel rules against Jenrette
WASHINGTON-The House ethics committee ruled yesterday that Rep.
John Jenrette (D-S.C.), convicted of accepting a bribe from FBI undercover
agents, has violated the House's code of ethics.
Jenrette is appealing his bribery conviction, arguing that he was enrap-
ped by the FBI agents in violation of his right to due process.
The South Carolina Democrat was the second congressman to be convic-
ted in the so-called Abscam undercover operation.
Anti-busing amendment
awaits action from Carter
WASHINGTON-The Senate yesterday passed and sent to President Car-
ter a controversial measure to bar the Justice Department from going to
court to seek busing as a means to desegregate schools.
The amendment, which was strongly denounced by Attorney General Ben-
jamin Civiletti, would prohibit government lawyers from asking courts for
any desegregation plan that would require transportation of children beyond
the school nearest their homes.
Civiletti has urged President Carter to veto the bill, saying it would cripple
federal efforts to desegregate public schools in future court cases.
President-elect Ronald Reagan has said he supports the anti-busing amen-
The anti-busing measure was included in a billappropriating more than
$9.1 billion for the Justice Department and other federal agencies.
Two convicted in Abscam
NEW YORK-Reps. John Murphy of New York and Frank Thompson of
New Jersey were convicted yesterday of conspiracy and Thompson was
found guilty of bribery of accepting $50,000 from undercover agents in the

FBI's Abscam political corruption probe.
Murphy was found guilty of three counts: conspiracy, conflict of interest
and accepting an unlawfulgratuity. He was found innocent of bribery and
faces up to nine years in prison.
Thompson was found guilty of conspiracy, bribery and accepting an
unlawful gratuity. He was found innocent of conflict of interest and faces up
to 22 years in prison.
