Carter unveils
Atlanta center
Reagan joins ceremony

President Jimmy Carter presen-
ted to the nation yesterday a
sprawling complex containing
documents and photos from his
administration, a period which
President Reagan said was
marked by Carter's "passion and
intellect and commitment."
The two leaders joined about
9,000 people, including former
Democratic presidential candi-
date Walter Mondale, at a
ceremony marking the ded-
ication and public opening of the
Carter Presidential Center.
CARTER, celebrating his 62nd
birthday, presented the National
Archives and Records Admin-
istration with the deed to the
Carter Presidential Library and
Museum, which takes up more
than half of the 130,000-square-
foot complex on 30 acres.
He called the library and
museum exhibit on his pres-
idency "a gift from me and my
family to all the people of the
United States in appreciation for
the great honor you have bestowed

on us."
But Carter said he looked
forward to a future of continued
public service through a human
rights organization, a conser-
vation foundation, and an Emory
University-based public policy
"think tank" housed in the
remainder of the Carter Presi-
dential Center, which is owned by
an operating foundation.
"WE APPRECIATE the past.
We are grateful for the present
and we're looking forward to the
future with great anticipation and
commitment," he said.
Guests included President and
Mrs. Reagan, who got a private
tour of the center with Carter and
his wife Rosalynn.
In brief remarks, Reagan
acknowledged deep political
differences with Carter but he
praised his predecessor for his
faith and hard work.
"You gave yourself to your
country, gracing the White House
with your passion and intellect
and commitment," Reagan said.

me. The 209th was a joke in the
Seoul area," Ditzhazy said.
Ditzhazy charged Narburgh
and five others with ignoring his
complaints when he tried to take
them up the chain of command.
Ditzhazy said the abuses are
"like a cancer. You can pretend
it's not there and look the other
way, but it will still kill you in the
long run."
IDITZHIAZY said Narburgh,
who recently held a two-year post
as head of the 524th Military
Intelligence Battalion in Korea,
also attempted to blacklist him
because he filed the charges.
Narburgh's report was
distributed to the CIA, the FBI, and
the Secret Service. It reportedly
attempted to keep Ditzhazy from
being hired for intelligence
positions in the United States.
The document charged
Ditzhazy with "unreliable
judgement, a total lack of
veracity and trustworthiness...so
as to suggest profound emotional
and psychological instability...,"
Ditzhazy said.
NARBURGH told The Daily
that the Army originally
intended to have Ditzhazy's
security clearance revoked and to
bar his reenlistment because of
his his performance.
Narburgh said he was
surprised by Ditzhazy's actions
and that some of Ditzhazy's
allegations were not brought to his
attention before he left Korea. He
added that Ditzhazy "keeps
coming up with new things" since
returning to the United States
because he is a "prolific writer."

idies Korea abuses'

Narburgh said records will
show that-in the two years of his
command, he took swift and
serious actions when he learned
of abuses by special agents. He
emphasized that the Army
investigation conducted in Korea
found Ditzhazy's charges to be
without merit.
DITZIIAZY, however, said the
investigation was faulty because
the Army failed to contact him
and 10 other key sources before
completing the investigation.
A spokesman for the
I.elligence and Security
Command (INSCOM) said

That does not mean that
Ditzhazy's allegations are
altogether false, the spokesman
.DITZIIAZY said that although
the investigation report was
scheduled for completion in
September, investigators released
preliminary findings in May to
discredit Ditzhazy before he took
the story to United Press
International, Secretary of
Defense Caspar Weinberger, and
every member of the Senate
Intelligence Subcommittee.

INSCOM began an informal
