Four charged with
Abscam conspiracy


NEW YORK (AP) - A Pennsylvania
congressman, the mayor of Camden,
N.J., and two Philadelphia attorneys
were indicted by a federal grand jury
yesterday on bribery conspiracy
charges growing out of the FBI's un-
dercover Abscam investigation.
Rep. Michael Myers,. a Democrat
from the First District in Philadelphia;
Camden Mayor Angelo Errichetti;
Louis Johanson, an attorney and
Philadelphia councilman; and Howard
Criden, also an attorney, were named
in the indictment.
ALL FOUR were charged with con-
spiring from July 1979 to February 1980
to commit bribery and defraud the

government by demanding and
agreeing to receive money in return for
Myers' influence in performance of of-
ficial acts.
The indictments handed down at U.S.
District Court in Brooklyn charged that
an FBI agent posing as a Middle East
businessman was told that Myers would
help the businessman remain in the
United States for $10,000 cash.
They could not be immediately
reached for comment.
According to the indictment, Myers
received an initial $50,000 for assuring
the agent he would introduce private
immigration bills that would allow hiii
to remain in the country .

On the wire side.

However indispensible the Asso-
ciated Press and United Press
International wire services may be,
they do pump their share of garbage
over the lines each day. Since the
American hostages were taken
almost 36 weeks ago, AP has been
sending over "Hostage Logos"
every few days, "for use as desired
with hostage stories." No paper
we've seen has yet used the logos.
And while we're on the subject of
useless AP photos, just try to
rememberthe last time you saw a
weather satellite picture in your
morning newspaper. Well, every
morning while you're still in bed, AP
sends, direct from its weather
satellite, a picture of the clouds
covering the U.S. Not to be left out of
the garbage wire act, UPI every
afternoon sends over breaking
livestock, bulk egg, and Detroit egg
reports. In case you are interested,
yesterday's hogs. closed at 800,
barrows and gilts (go look 'em up in
your dictionary) were steady, 92
score Grade A eggs were at 134.00-
140.58, and the Detroit egg market
was fair, with supplies short to
ample. D
